"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime, Some time ago a well-known writer severely criticised our present system for sending people to prison for crimes as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. He as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and eome judges, especially in America, are be ginning to follow out his ideas. For instance, the other day a man named Brant was charged in Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him to go to prison for five days, and to be fed during the whole of that time on a diet of eggs only. At the expiration of his sentence Brant declared that he had become so tired of eggs that he would never eat another one again, so that the judge's novel sentence has effected a radical cure in this particu lar case. In California, if a man should fail to support his wife and family, he is sent to prison, where he is made to work hard and pay a daily sum' to his "better-lialf" out of the money that ...

WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. The ultra-smart 6et has no friend in Queen Mary. With the freak fash ions and the eccentric pleasures of a certain section of society Her Majes ty has no sympathy. On more than one occasion, indeed, the Queen has expressed her strong disapproval of the extremes to which people carry their pleasures nowadays, and she has set her face very strongly against the periodical crazes in which the elite, in search of new and novel pas times, indulge. It has ibeen known for some time that Her Majesty considered that the latest dances, particularly the tango, are quite unsuitable for the ballroom, and neither at Buckingham Palace nor at houses which Her Majesty visits will they figure on the programmes. Not that the Queen objects to dan cing; indeed, she is very fond of the waltz, schottische, polka and other graceful dances. In her attitude to wards the tango she is supported 'by King George, who, like the Kaiser, considers that this particular danc...

FOR ROSIE'S SAKE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

FOR ROSIE'S SAKE By Janet Carter. Snow, heavy, driving snow, covered England beneath its spotless mantle from the Tweed to the Fal. In Scot land the railway service was disorgan ised. In the Midlands driftB had clos ed down many a branch line. On the Great Southern system it threatened to be the same. Not for years had there been so continuous a fall as the one which now roared across the lit tle country junction of Crayworth. "It's going to be-a queer night, Joe," muttered the driver of the great en Kloc, side-tracked on a siding. "The snow is on a level with the rails all along the line. What's the betting we sh.'ill be hung up before we reach Hartlingford?" . . The fireman laughed as, swinging open the furnace-door, he swept a shovel-load of coal over the blazing maw of the fire-box. "Pretty enough in pictures. Bad in real life. We!!, there's one thing, Tom. It is that if we do have to spend some time in a drift, we shall have the managing director of the line for company. A shar...

The house lay in a decent street off iWestbourne-grove, and was the property of a Scotch woman who let lodgings to;-a limited number of "select" tenants: This un impeachable person, spruce in a'bla'ck silk dress and a white cap, opened the door to -Hugh's knock and said? that Madame was at home. They went up a. narrow flight of stairs, and,'were shown into a spacious drawing-room, furnished in the fashion of fifty years ago. Here, the old lady promised-'to let Madame know immediately and withdrew. She was very proud of her "baronet," and.a Scotsman, too! . Desdy rather liked' this room be cause of a wonderful picture of the battle of Waterloo, in which one dra goon upon a white horse cut off the head of another dragoon upon a black horse.

SING A SONG. if you'll sing a song as you go along In the face of the real or the fancied ■wrong In face of the doubt, if you'll fight it out, And show a heart that is brave and stout; If you'll laugh at the jeers and refuse the tears, You'll force the ever-reluctant cheers That the world denies when a coward cries. To give to the man who bravely tries; And you'll -win success with a little song— If you'll sing the song ae you go along. If you'll sing a song as you plod along You'll find that the busy, rushing throng Will catch the strain of the glad re frain ; That the sun will follow the blinding rain, That the clouds will fly from the blackened sky, That the stars will come out by-and bye, And you'll make new friends, till hope descends From where the placid rainbow bends. And all because of a little song— If you'll sing the song as you plod along. If you'll sing a song as you trudge along You'll see that the singing will make you strong, Aud the heavy load, and the rugged road, ...

III. It was unduly late when they en tered the conservatory, and Desdy waa rather frightened by all the finely dressed people having coffee there. When he had been washed, and had found fault with this ibungler who knew so little how to get black off chubby faces, he asked if the grand folk had "done tea yet"; and when in formed that this was dinner; the para dox kept him silent for many minutes. "Is Lally going to have dinner, too?" "Certainly she is. Now come along, old chap, and you shall have some thing very good." They sat down in the restaurant, and a waiter began to serve them. Desdy was all for eating sardines by holding them up by the end of the tail and swallowing them piecemeal; he seemed" astonished when Hugh cor rected him, and sat there a little pa thetically with a fish in his hand and the blue eyes wide open. "How do you dp it, Hugh?" "With a fork—like this, Desdy." "But I shove it into my lap when 1 do that. What does the man make that row for?" "It's the gramophone...

Irrigation at America. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 28 April 1914

Irrigation at America. At Shepparton, Dr Suowden, of the American Trade Commission, was not slow iu expressing his ap preciation of what he had seen dur ing his hurried tour through the Goulburn Valley. He heartily endorsed everything that had been said by Mr Deakin. The system, iu vogue, he said, of the State con trol of irrigation areas had a con siderably advantage over the or dinary Amerieau area scheme. While in America they had gone into irrigation lather extensively, the investments amounting to about 1,100,000,000, the scheme was un satisfactory as the result of specula tion in irrigated lauds owing to the fact that these schemes were pro moted by private companies. This had led to a misunderstanding and difficulties which had given irriga tion something of a set-back re cently. That was avoided iu Vic toria owing to the irrigation schemes being uiider State control.

Converting Lucerne into Mutton. IMPORTANT DEVELOP MENTS AT RAMAWM. The agricultural reporter of • the "leader" writes that three week? ago, a special train consisting.en tirely of fat sheep, left Rochester raihvay^station. The incident is of more than passing importance. As a geueral rule in this district, fat sheep have been exceedingly scarce at this time of year. In such a raiuless period as that now being experienced, it would, under ordinary conditions,have been hope less to look for them. Instead of fat sheep one would have found ani mals going back in condition, and their owners making preparations for the hand feeding or removal of the insufficiently nurtured stock. At the present time there are in round numbers fifty irrigators in the Bamawui district, • who are grazing sheep upon their lucerne fields'. The exact number that are being maintained cannot be ac curately determined, but local au thoratives estimate that it is not less than 10,000. In some in stances the stock a...
