EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD BOOKED. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD BOOKED. The first thing that strikes the liberty-loving person when he settles down in Berlin, or even puts up at a boarding-house for a short stay, is the "Anmeldungspflicht," or duty of re porting oneself to the police. Before he has been in the house many hours he is presented with a printed form on which he is compelled to fill in all kinds of particulars about himself under penalty of a heavy fine and eventually imprisonment if he fails to do so, or if he writns down de tails which the police afterwards as certain to be untrue. First of all the newcomer has to write down his full name, the exact date of his birthday, the name of the place in which he was 'born, and the nature of 'his occupation. Then he must state what his religion is, and if he believes in none at ull. he must duly enter himself as an mfidel. Fur ther, he must state what his nation ality is, and whether he is in posses sion of a passport to pr v. e his iden tity. These particulars a...

JOHN LEE'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
JOHN LEE'S DREAM. . - Sentenced to death for the murder of Emma Keyse, lady-in-waiting to the , late Queen Victoria, at Babbicombe, near Torquay, John Lee was brought out for execution in Exeter Gaol on February 25, 1885. Overnight Lee had dreamt that three attempts would be made to carry out the sentence, but that all three would prove unsuccess ful, and his life be preserved. He re vealed this to "Warder Bennett, who reported the circumstance to the go vernor of the prison. All possible pre caution was taken; but,, nevertheless, Lee escaped the gallows. Everything having" been made ready, Lee stood on the trap of the gallows, which had just recently tie en erected. The signal was given, and Berry, the executioner, pulled the lever—ibut the trap refused to fall! The faces of all present expressed be wilderment. Berry gave the lever an other feverish pull, and the warders on either side stamped upon the trap; but it would not move. Lee was then marched off, with the cap still over h...
DIPHTHERIA "CARRIERS." [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
DIPHTHERIA "CARRIERS." Interesting information is. con tained in a report by Dr R. J. Bull on the bacteriological inves tigations undertaken at the Uui versity laboratory for the Public Health department for the year 1913. Amongst the subjects men tioned, the report deals with the diphtheria "carriers" and states that a special subsidy of £350 a year was made available in 1911 to provide for investigations into the "carrier" problem, and last year several thousand, speci schools, other public institutions and private practitioners in con nection with the detection of dibhtheria and typhoid " carri ers." This arrangement resulted in the discovery of upwards of 200 "carriers," many of whom were discovered by later investi gation to harbour highly virulent micro-organisms... However, while it is a matter for congratu lation that the machinery is pro vided for the detection of germ "carriers," it is to be regretted that much remains to be done in respect of the subsequent con trol and t...

Solemn Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince me o£ one thing." "What's that?" "That there are mighty few days in the year on which a man does any thing really worth recording." Friendship can sometimes show its strength as much by the readiness with which it accepts benefits as by the freedom with which it gives them. It proves by this its confidence in the love of the other side.
To the Gouty. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
To the "Gouty. For those who are liable to attacks of gout, it is an excellent rule to re duce, the allowance of butcher's meat, especially beef, talcing it no oftener than once a day, and preferably at midday instead of in the evening. Di gestion goes on very slowly, if at all, during the hours of sleep, and the habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of Ihe chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of the gouty type. Industry is essential to liappiness and idleness is the friend of unhappi ness and ennui. Certain persons al ways will and always have existed who find employm-nt distasteful. They are endowed with an indolent disposition, and enjoy nothing more than complete immunity from work and responsibility. Their intense dis like of work of all descriptions en ables them to be ever ready with what they are pleased to consider an adequate excuse. They "did not know," they "thought it had ibeen done," they "believed it was to be done tomorrow," it was "too hot" or...
WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It is a strange but undeniable.^act that most people hardly ever hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you will sup pose that you can't help hearing your self when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise thai it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly ?top talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a great start, because the voice" sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a very great surprise to bear yourself mimicked. You are al most certain to exclaim, "Who is that meant for?" and other people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you—don't you re cognise it?" and then you rralise how deaf to your own voice you have been for many years You never see your, own face ei ther, except in a photograph ,and that is why a photograph is always some thing of i...

WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. I£ neither husband nor. wife has married for loVe, tout merely for mon ey, or any other mundane motive. If meals are ill-cooked and badly served. if two young people rush into matri mony, they take upon themselves all the burden of married life when too young to realise the responsibility of it. If the income, though well managed and made the most of, cannot cover the expenditure. If the husband be a faddy, fidgetty man, perpetually prying into house hold matters, and if lie thinlcs lie knows more about them than anybody else. If both parties are absolutely re solved to see only the worst side of each other's character. If the husband tries to be mistress as well as master of the house, or the wife master as well as mistress of the house. If, when dark days come, husband and wife" forget they took each other for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer. If the wife is totally ignorant of even the rudiments of domestic econ omy, and thinks more of her dre...
THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. Sir John Forest a Prophet. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 10 June 1914
THE E80OI8LE DSSSOLUa i TSON. I Sir John Forest a Prophet. 1 When the Federal Convention was preparing our Constitution, considerable discussion arose over the proposals submitted to overcome deadlocks between the two Houses of Parliament, and at the Adelaide sitting all proposals for that purpose were defeated. When the constitution was being reconsidered at Sydney in 1897, proposals for a double dissolution in case of a deadlock were again submitted, and amongst those who strongly opposed these pro posals was Sir John Forest. In view of the fact that the Cook Government, of which Sir John is a member, now proposes to bring about a double dissolution, the opinions expressed by Sir John at the Convention are of great inter est. Speaking at the Sydney meeting of the Convention on 15th September, Sir John Forest said " We believe that to proyide a machinery lor the settlement of deadlocks which has not been fonnd necessary in the past will be to encourage differences. . . Of course, t...
