The Way It Worked. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 March 1914

The Way lIt Worked. "What do you do when people come in and bore you?" a warm per sonal friend asked of a merchant. "When they stay- too long the office boy, who is very bright and knows just when to interfere, tells me that a gentleman is in the counting house waiting to see me on import ant business." "Ha! ha! That's a capital way to get rid of bores who don't know---" Just then the boy opened the door and sang out: "Gent in the countin' house; sir, waiting to see you on im portant business." Reputation may be a mere bubble, but it makes an awful mess when it bursts. The right kind of a farmer will not put his wife to the trouble of asking to go with 'him to the dity now and again when he goes. Instead, he will steal a march and insist upon her going, whiuh will please her very much. P1U- _. :

EYES AND CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 March 1914

EYES AND CHARACTER. Most birds of prey, like most sa vages, have eyes of the darkest hues (says Dr. Leonard K. Hirshberg in the San Francisco '"Examiner"). This gives their fierce natures an added ferocity. The evolutionists explain the predominance of the black and brown eyes by pointing to the Ifact that the most vigorous savages and most powerful animals have them', hence it is a question of the survival of the fittest. In a ,wild state of nature the blue eye is a handicap. It does not oc cur among the pncivilised human tribes, and ;but seldom among the brute creatures. One savant main· tains that the degree of civilisation and effeminacy present in any race is directly proportiohal to the number of blue eyes present. Consider for a moment the various emotions to which man is subject. Think of the great number of races there are wvith regard to the color of the sklifS. There are dark skinned, red skinned, copper skinned, brown skinned, black skinned, yellow skin ned, 'white skinn...

A TRUNK AND A TROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 March 1914

A TRUNK AND A -TROUGH. "An elephant of mine," said an an imal trainer; "has been taught to pump the trough in his winter quar ters full of water every morning. Old Mowgli showed his sense the other day. It was like this: One of the logs _swpporting the trough had got dis placed. The trough slanted, and as fast as IMowgli pumped the water in, it ran out-to the floor. I watched him to see <lat he'd do. He pumped away foi- a~o6g:time before he noticed anything wrong. Then he left the pump and came and nosed the trough over, grunting discontentedly'. The thing was still empty; so he turned to the pump again. Twice he stopped pumping; twice he studied the trough. Then, of a sudden; he gave a sharp, quick trumpet. He saw what the trouble was, and with a thrust of his trunk he dislodged the other log, and the trough rested, flat and level again, on the ground. Now, without any difficulty, itcould 'be filled; and Mow gli, with a grunt that said, 'There! I've settled thst difficul...

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 March 1914

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. When Jim and I were first married I daresay 'we were' over-careful about money. To begin, with, we hadn't much, and when two young people start housekeeping, however carefully - they settle just what things they must have and what these are going to cost, other expenses always crop up, and there isn't much left of the savings at the end of it all. So naturally they start by being as economical as pos sible. Then the children came, and we had to think three or four. times over every penny for a bit. But after a few years, when George and Mary were .old. enough to go 'to school, things be gan to look up. For one thing, Jim left the foundry and took up with motors, and made very good money. Then my grand mother died and left me fifteen pounds, as- I'd always been her favor Ite. And finally Jim put up for the - District Council and got elected, so that he felt we ought to make a bit more of a.show than we had done in the past. First of all, we must needs move out ...

HISTORIC TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

HISTORIC TOWN Of the three big parish churches which will shortly become the cathe dralg of the three-new dioceses, the: most interesting is St. James's, Bury St. Edmunds. The town has asso-: ciations which make it worthy of being the cathedral city of a diocese.: Parliament was.held in the "town in 1272, 1296, and 1446, and sovereigns were entertained there in former ages in lavish manner. The Abbey, which Canute .founded in 1020, became one of the richest Ind most important in mediaeval times. with an enormous income. The "new" cathedral church dates from the fif teenth century, but the tower, which serves as a sort of campanile, is a relic of Norman England, and is said to be the original work of Abbot An selm, who was a. nephew of the famous archbishop. The new see will be known as St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich, a not unpicturesque de signation, recalling the combination of St. Andrews and Edinburgh.

GIRL'S INFATUATION [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

GIRL'S INFATUATION A remarkable story of a schoolgirl's infatuation for a music hall artist, for whom she sacrificed her hair, was told at the Central Criminal Court (says "The Daily Express" of Janu ary 16), when Frank Harwood, aged 39, was indicted on a charge of having unlawfully taken a girl named Nellie Dunn, under the age of 16 years, out of the possession of Charles Herbert Dunn, her father. Harwood pleaded not guilty. Mr. Travers Humphreys, who pro secuted, stated that Harwood was a married man, and the girl would be 15 years old on February 20. "She lived with her, parents at Streatham," he added, "and in Sep tember, 1912, when she was 13 1 years old and attending Streatham Modern College, Harwood got into conversa tion with her and some other girls outside the school. He seemed to take a fancy to Nellie Dunn, and asked her to meet him that evening near Streatham Common. She agreed, but did not keep the appointment. "A few days later she found him waiting for her outside th...

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY AMUSEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

W1IITER- SPORTS IN NORWAY .AMUSHM NT-OFI THE PEOPLE. W ilnter sports in Norway (writes s correspihident in "The Times") are the rimiisement of the people. They might -really be called democratic if the wore .were-not- habitually used to denote "something disagreeable and unpopular, For there ls. hardly a man or womar lh-Noi?way under middle age, except tlte infirm, who does not spend most of his or her spare time struggling with the laws of gravity in the winter months, And there are five of these winter months at the very least, ever at sea level; higher up they have never been counted, but enthusiasts take "a busman's holiday" by holding an an nual ski-jumping competition on Mid summer's Day somewhere in the moun tains near Finse. The strange thing is that the cult for winter sports is not much older in Nor way than elsewhere. Boys have pre sumably always tried to slide down slopes somehow, and the more leisur ed used to do a little skating; but, 4( years ago, it was not considere...

FAMOUS INSTITUTION ? ?: = -- • -- -~-- An informative sketch of the. history of theFoundling -Iospital in Blooms bury..was given by the Solicitor-Gene ral, Sir Stanley Buckmaster, K.C., in Mr Justice~-sJoyce's Court yesterday,;:in an actlon.by the Crown against the governors of the hospital (says "The Daily Neivs," January 21). The. Court was asked for a declara tion -that the defendants were not leg ally entitled to part with lands in Bloomsbury without the consent of the Board of Education (who took the place of the Charity Commissioners under the Charitable Trust Act,' 1853), on the ground that the hospital was not a cha rity exempt from the provisions of the Act of 1853. - The hospital, he said, could not claim exemption unless it was a mixed char ity-partly maintaned by income from endowments and partly by voluntary subscriptions. At the present day the 'hospital had an income of upwards of £27,000 a year from its endowments, and received from voluntary annual subscriptions a s...

JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. (By E. Bruce Mitford, F.R.G.S., in ·The Daily Telegraph.") - With characteristic suddenness -the islands of Japan have added one more to the already long list of their vol canic 'disasters. The unexpected and destructive outburst of the Sakuras hima volcano will serve to remind us that the land which the passing tourist is wont to apostrophise as that of the lotus-"where it is always afternoon" Is one of the most troubled on the face of this planet... Japan has 160 separate; volcanoes. Three-fourths of these are "dead." That is .to say, they are so regarded official ly-in the maps of the Tokio geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the lie to the recorders of their history. Sakurashima, though not "dead," was generally thought to be "dying." Some ten years ago the present writer was taken. to task by. a local pundit for describing this volcano, in a little work of reference;,-as. still active. Two years before the great erup...

TOLSTOY DIARIES [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

TOLSTOI ' IARIES ---.-.-_. The long-drawn-out dispute over the Tolstoy manuscripts has entered upon a new phase, according to.the Russian journal "Retch." The main point of. contention is that the Countess S. A. Tolstoy refuses to. hand over to her daughter, Alexandra Tolstoy, the manu scripts which are being preserved in the historical museum at Moscow. Among these manuscripts is a collection of Tolstoy diaries relating to the closing years of the last century. Alexandra Tolstoy, according to her father's will, regards helself as the owners of the diaries, but in order to end the struggle she has agreed to give up her rights of ownership of the diaries and content herself with the rights of publication. . She has pro posed to her mother that the diaries be entrusted to a third party having the confidence of both sides, with the obj?ct of photographing the diaries and of supplying each side with a copy.

DEPUTATIONS TO THE PREMIER. SALTING THE BARR CREEK [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

DEPU CATIONS TO THE PREMIER. SALTING THE BARR CREEK Before starting on the tour of inspection on Thursday morning, the Premier, Mr Watt, had to listen to one or two deputations that waited upon him. Crs West blade, Radcliffe and O'Donnell drew attention to the possible damage that will be done to Barr Creek lands by having the salt water from the Mead settlement drained into the water course. Or Westblade stated That the quadntity of salt water turned into the creek was having a seriously deteriorating effect on this creek water and it was feared that when the drainage scheme now in hand was completed, the water in Barr Creek would be destroyed for domestic and irrigation pur poses. He protested against the present scheme. If it relieved the Mead people it would damage the landholders along the creek Crs Radcliffe and O'Donnell sup ported Cr Westblade's conten tion. In the informal discussion which followed it was men tioned that Mr Kreutzer had said that the relatively small quanti...

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. The United States is the greatest film-producing country. in. the world (writes L.R., in "The Westminster Ga zette"). It is no exaggeration to say that over 50 per cent. of the world's productions have their origin there. During the first nine months of last year the country exported 29,000,000 feet of film, more than three-quarters of which came to Great Britain. The kinemato graph industry in America must, how ever, be somewhat hampered by the extraordinary censorship conditicns prevailing, which are in the hands of no fewer tht'n forty-eight separate and distinct jurisdctioins. Though America is responsible for most of the film-producing, Great Bri tain is easily first in the matter of dis tribution, quite 80 per cent. of the world's pictures being "released" here. This means employment for many thousands of Britons in offices, theatres and show-rooms, and is a striking ex ample of the advantage of freetrade. On Wednesday evening next, c...

NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 31 March 1914

NEW SURGiERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMIKED The excitement created among doctors by the radium treatment of cancer (says the "Central News") will probab ly be overshadowed at an early date by the announcement to the medical profession of an astonishing operation now being performed at Guy's Hospital, which in the near future is bound to re volutionise the whole practice of opera tive surgery. The operation so far has been ap plied to cases of certain forms of tu berculosis, and so successful has it proved that it has now been accepted at Guy's as the correct treatment for this disease. The principle of the treatment, the 'Central News" was informed by an eminent surgeon, is the removal of the cause of the disease. For long it has been recognised that the excessive mul tiplication of noxious bacteria in the larger intestine and the inability of the body to eliminate them was the pre disposing cause of many diseases.'
