Smart Children with Stupid Parents. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 29 May 1914

. Smart Children .with. ; Stupid Parents. ? T--tr - . The contention of many physicians and reformers' that feoble-mindcrd par 011 ts should bo prohibited from "marry ing, becausc they believe thatthcofC spring of such unions is bound to bo similarly afflicted, is not always borne out by facts. Indeed-, it; fre quently happens that normal chil dren, who aro in no way mentally or physically deficient are born to feeble-miuded parents. And this lias puzzled not a few physicians and scientists. j It would aectn, however, according to Dr. Charles Davenport, a eu genic expert, that the explanation ia quite simple. He points out that tlie mentally deficient are not all deficient in the same way. The term "deficient" is not only applied to those who aro stupid, owing to lack of brain power, but is often ap plied to criminals of every dogree. Thus if a deficient man marries a woman who is deficient, it does not follow that their deficiencies aro of the eaine naturo. The man's deficiency may...

Scripture Instruction. _ The Scripture Instruction Elec tion Campaign is a'foot. We are ;bombarded with leaflets. The President is His Nibs (or Grace or something) Archbishoy Clarke, and the superintendent andlectu erer the Rev. Jos. Nicholson, who has stirred up a good many things in his time. They declare they do not want to return to the denom inational system, to have separate grants to any denomination, to abolish free education, nor to ab olish the existing system of edu cation. Also, what they want is Bible lessons in the State schools as part of the curriculum, taught by the teachers in ordinary hours, with a "conscience clause", and an opportunity for ministers or representatives of churches to give religious instruction in school hours. The league's "pivotal points" include that the Scrip ture reveal God; that in the life of Jesus is the best ethical teach ing ; that the State lelies upon Christian morality as the basis of good citizenship ; that 80,000 children do not att...

Publications. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 29 May 1914

Publications. New Zealand has its deer shooting ; the Northern Territory offers buffalo; and there are hangaroo hunting grounds in New South Wales; but for the most part Australasia has little to present in the nature of big game shooting. An article on the cost of making an excursion into the nearest big-game country Africa-will be of interest. An article appears in the June issue of " Life," of interest to general readers, for it describes the picturesque aspects of the coun try, and the prospects for the trader and the hunter. In the same issue Dr. Henry O'Hara gives the benefit of the inquiries into the value and prospects of radium in the treatment of can cer. A well-known resident of New Cuinea writes on the Papuan as a devil-worshipper, and proves that right throughout the Archi pelago there exists a much higher type of religion than the Papuans have been, credited with.
