DUTCH NOVELIST MAARTEN MAARTEN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914
DUTCH NOVELIST irAARTEN MAARTEN'S WORK. "Maarten Maartens occupies a unique place among English novelists," writes A. St. John Adcock in the "Bookman" in an article accompanied by fine pho tographs of the novelist's beautiful Dutch home. "Like Joseph Conrad, though he is a foreigner, he neither appeals to us in an alien tongue, nor conies home to us over broken bridges of translation; he writes a clear, vigorous, picturesque English, that in purity and forcefulness few of our living authors can surpass. "Mr Conrad is, perhaps, more easily idiomatic, a subtler stylist who has mastered the inner mysteries and the magic of the language he has made his own: but then Mr Conrad is one of our selves; he lives and works among us. "Whilst Maarten Maartens, though he writes in English, and his works belong legitimately to English literature, re mains a Dutchman; his home is till at Doorii, in Holland, and he visits Eng land only occasionally; moreover, the stories he writes in our tongue are,...
DEAD MAN IN A CHIMNEY GRUESOME DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914
DEAD iMAN IN A CHIIMNEY GRUESOME DISCOVERY. Mr Kiplin's guesome story, "The Re turn of lmray," was reproduced in real - life at Aumur, near Dole (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Ex press"). A man named Riollin, a notorious drunkard and something of a :bad character, disappeared on the last day of the year. Yesterday, as nothing had been heard of him, his relatives pro ceeedd to make an inventory of the things in his house, when one of them noticed that the chimney did not draw. .As in Kipling's story, a dog which had always refused to enter the living room since Rollin's disappearance showed signs of great uneasiness, and slowly. as in the story., something-` ieavy which sagged in the middle was seen to aptpear, and then to fall into the Iireplace. It was the body of Rol lin. It is thought that, returning home after celebrating the New Year with some fre Ihom. Rollin. who had left his keys at home, had tried to get into his house by climbing down the chim ney. had stuck i...
RELIGION AND LABOR BROTHERHOOD THROUGH BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914
RELIEION AND LABOR BROTHERHOOD THROUGH BUSINESS. Mr. J. Ramsay Macdonald, M.P., writ ing on Religion and the Labor bMove ment in the "Constructive Quarterly," says:- "If the Labor Movement is not filling, church pews, that it not because it has abandoned Christianity, but because it has turned away from the Church for its worship-two totally different things. "The conclusion to which I came. is that, if, on the one hand, the Church cannot retain the confidence- of the ac tive spirits in the Labor and Socialist movement it will cut itself off more and more from the spiritual life of the people: it will become more and more the barren fig tree which cumbers the ground: outside its walls and in places not blessed by it the Gospel wilt .be preached. LABOR- AND RELIGION. "On the other hand, should anythinig happen which will alienate the Labor Movement from religious faith, it will become more and more destructive and negative in its 'outlook, harder and more economic in its inspiration,...

A MEDICAL MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 March 1914
A MEDICAL MILLENNIUM. tui' Sydney correspondenit writes: i r. Hlolman, the State Premier, sennms to have been fired by an intense medical enthusiasm during his visit to the Mledical Conference in new Zea land. Very wonderful are the tlhings which he is going to do now that no has returned. Special provision is to bo made for the "'neurupath," ' who, if he can live long enough, will be jubi lant accordingly. Consumptive pa tients are to become the special care of the State, which will therefore have a very considerable proportion of the comnmunity on its hands. There is to be a crusade against venereal disease, and "research'" work, wvhich is usu ally interpreted as vivisection, is to bo liberally endowed. The hospitals are to be gradually ''nationalised,"' as the proportion of their austenanc which they derive from the Government in creases year by year. Also, there is to be a separate portfolio of "? Mealth" co that tae doctors shall not have all the good things. So glowing a pro g...

The triennial elections for the school committee took place this month, and the following were. elected to represent the Sale School committee;-Miss. A. Middlemist, Messrs. G. Scott, E. Young, J. L. Reece, E. Phipps, jun., C. Robinson and G. Bryan. The President of the Gippsland Hos pital (Mr. J. I-. Cartledge) during a recent visit to Bendigo inspected, the operating theatre there, which is laid with tiles. It is, however,,the inten tion of the Bendigo committee to have constructed a now operating theatre, at a cost of £1000; but they do not in tend having it tiled, the- present floor not proving satisfactory. The Presi dent also visited the Melbourne Hos pital, and the three operating theatres there are being laid with a new ma terial, which is grey, and has the ap pearance of marble. Unfortunately he was not able to secure any definite idea of the cost. It would appear that there are only three men in the Com monwealth who can lay and - do the work, the men being Italians, and th...
