THE TOWN ACCENT. A DEBATABLE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

iBfe x-y0k 'Wdb&m A DEBATABLE QUESTION. : Mr W. Peit Ridge, who ought to know, --writes bs follows in the ' Westminster Gazette': — ?? ' :A wistful protest was made a while since by the headmaster of a. public school against the incursions of the Cockney accent, but having made a single effort with the broom to keep back the tide, he apparently gave up the struggle. For this ' I do not lilazno him. Even for the headmaster, of a public school life is too full to permit of time being wasted in fight ing against overwhelmingly big bat talions ; it is possible he remem bered the story of the father who, having . swiftly prospered In business ' at Stepney, desivod, in recognising j that his own accent was incurable, that his boy should undergo a course ' of treatment. The head of an expen sive establishment guaranteed to effect a remedy in the course of a j brief period, and the boy was sent. A fortnight later the father received a telegram, ' Come and fetch your son away at once...

NAPOLEON. LAST NIGHTS LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

NAPOtEON. LAST NIGHT'S LECTURE. Mr Du Soir gave at the Austral Salon last evening what had been an nounces as a lecture on 'Napoleon Bonaparte: Statesman, Warrior, Legis lator and Ruler.' Obviously, a large order. That it was not fulfilled is perhaps suf cientiv Gxnialncrl V»v its Vi»ffftnoss.U\it It is proper to add tbat Mr Du Soir, al though fluent, and equipped with the knowledge ot an omnivorous reader ol history, has not developed the vocal powers necessary for platform work. He has a habit of dropping his voice at important periods, and even the nearest of his audience are left to guess at what he Is whispering. To those familiar with the main fea tures of Napoleon's life, Mr Du Soir did not afford information, yet it was ob viously to theni that the lecturer ad dressed himself, for to persons without some knowledge of that great life most of last night's discourse must have been meaningless. Although the audience was fortified by some autobiographical particulars against the....

Yesterday (14th October) the envoys of Mulal Hand, the self-styled 'Sultan of Morocco,' sought an interview with the King, and paid a visit to the Foreign Office.

SMALL CHEESES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

BTWAT.T. CHEESES. On (he question of small cheeses, Pro fessor R. A. Pearson, of the American Department of Dairy Industry, writes:— 'If one wishes to get as much food as possible, be would be likely to prefer a cut from a large cheese, and we are making a good number of these cheeses for the general trade. We find, however, that a good many people like to have A nrtinlA /tKa^eo 'PYiat* tran4 it fnv Itinpll or picnic purposes, or merely because it attracts them, and we are putting up some of our curd In the form of cheeses weighing a little less than 21b. and of the same shape as the regular cheddar cheese. This Is a bandy size for one to carry, and we notice that frequently they are bought by persons who are not In the habit of taking slices from the large cheese. We cover these Uttte cheeses with paraffin tbe same as we cover the larger ones. This does much to prevent the formation of the thick, objectionable rind. I think I have made It plain to you that the new form of cheese Is...

BREEDING DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

BREEDING DAIRY CATTLE. One thing always advisable to consider , when men start out buying pure-bred cattle (writes Hoad'a Dairyman) is. that the knowledge,; skill, and charactei of the breeder axe a-out as important as , Is the animal they are to buy. ' I . There is a difference between being a . real breeder and otte who simply makes , male and female. One man's cattle show always a progressive quality. Tbey are the product of skilful, intelligent mating. ; Another man gives no thought to the i deepest phases of the question. He slm ; ply breeds pure bred cattle together, ; and there Is no Intelligent adaptation of , means to ends.' The average capacity . of his cattle shows a hit and miss re sult, that la very confusing and disap pointing. It Is right to say that there j will be fuUy enough failures even with the most thoughtful and comprehensive breders. - What must it be with men who bestow but little thought or study upon the deepest physiological problems that are Involved and...

GAGGED AND ROBBED. MAIDEN LADIES' EXCITING AD VENTURE. The gagging of a' lady at Croydon last week, and the subsequent theft of ar ticles of value from tbe bouse, has been followed by a precisely similar outrage at Hampstead, and, as In the former case, the miscreants got clean away without leaving a trace At No. 2, Oman Mansions.

FHEAKS. ?' AMERICA'S MONOPOLY. Freaks appear to have gone somewhat out of fashion, but In the States they seem to be as popular and abundant as ever. And their very abundance sug gests the question : Why ^should freaks abound In greater numbers !n the 'States than in any other country? Among the advertisements of'UiTs form of attrac tion In a Fittsburg paper, I notice tbe following choice specimens of the ab normal:— A boy with no spine;' two young prin cesses from Caucasia possessed of 'a coating of for;' an armless man, who does fancy work with his teeth; a. negro gentleman whose speciality la chewing tempered steel bars; and, to crown all, the lndiarubber king, whose limbs may be pulled or twisted in any direction, and will at once resume their normal position. - .

A DESERTED VILLAGE. ON BRENDON HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

A DESERTED VILLAGE. ON BRENDON HILLS. The site of the erstwhile flourishing Tillage of Brendon Is -represented by a few gaunt stone chimneys, a stray clus ter of roofless cottages, a dilapidated Dissenting chapel, a ghostly railway station, and one fair-sized shop, which serves the needs of the scattered com munity living on the Brendon Hills. But for many years the deserted vil lage was left just as It was when the miners oooumed It. and us such nre sented an extraordinary Right — silent, grass-grown streets of closed houses, shops. Inns, and places of worship. It was only comparatively recently that the buildings were razed, and the mate rials of which they wera composed sold and carried away. To-day the most tangible relic Is found at the junction of the road, just outside the village — a quaint, square, plain building, over the porcbed entrance to which is the word 'Beulah' and the date of erection, 1861. This Is one o£ the little chapels built for the miners. No attempt has bee...

WHAT IS A MIDSHIPMAN? THE MAHAN DEFINITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

WHAT IS A MIDSHIPMAN? THE MAHAN DEFINITION. By luck, I, for the first time In my life, have found a plausible derivation for midshipman. It would appear that in the days immediately after the flood the vessels were very high at the ends, be tween which there was a deep 'waist,' giving no ready, means of passing from one end to the other. To meet this dif ficulty there were employed a class of men, usually youne and alert, who from their station were called mldshlp-men, to carry messages which were not subject for the trumpet shout. If this explana tion holds water It, like fore-castle, and aru-r-enard and night-heads, gives another instance of survival of nomen clature froni conditions which have long ceased. Whatever the origin of his title, It well expressed the anomalous and undefined position of tbe midshipman. He belonged, so to say, to both ends of the ship, as well as to the middle, and his duties and privileges alike fell within the broad saying, already, quoted, thaj what w...
