HOBSON'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 31 March 1914
HOBSON'S CHOICE. The phrase "Hobson's choice" first came into use in the seventeenth cen tury, and had its origin in the eccen tricities of one Tobias Hobson. This gentleman was a carrier who'lived in Cambridge, and died in the year 1G30. In addition to his ordinary carrier's business-he kept a stable and let out horses to the studeuts at the univer sity. He made it an unalterable rule, however, that each animal should have-an equal period of" work and rest, and would never let one out of its turn. Consequently, instead of being allowed to select the steed they most fancied, his customers had to take the one that stood .next to the door. If it did not meet with their approval, they had to do without a ride. Hence the proverbial expression, . "Hobson's choice," used to signify a choice with out an alternative. .

SCIENTIFIC AND USEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 31 March 1914
SCIENTIFIC AND USEFUL. Almost all metals corrode when left In contact with air for any length of time. This is due to the fact that ' they combine with the oxygen to form new substances, known to the chem ist as oxides. After experimenting with a camera and birds of many kinds, M. Geraud, of Paris, concludes, that, domestic fowls have a language adapted not only to expressing' 'ill the emotions of whicU chickens are capable, but that they communicate intelligence of interest to one another. An important discovery; is reportd from Calumet, Michigan. A black smith, after five years' experimenting, has achieved; the welding of copper ' and.steel. Samples of the welded ma terials put on the lathes in the Calu met and. Hecla^shops are said to have gained the good opinion': of' the ex perts. ..

A REMARKABLE BANK-NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 31 March 1914
| A REMARKABLE BANK-NOTE. | It was no "banking" corporation, «, but an artist, that Issued what was i perhaps the most. remarkable bank ' note ever put out, and this artist was no other than George Cruikshank. I The issuance of this note was coinci- 1 dent with the beginning of the last . century, at the time when the penal- ! ties for .crime in England were ex cessively harsh. About 300 offences , were punishable by death, these rang ing,from murder and theft of a piece of cloth,'or the passing of a counter- . felt, one pound note. Hanging was I then so common that to witness an execution was among the most popu lar forms of amusement. All win- | dows that commanded views of New gate or Tyburn were let at high prices, and parties were made up among people in the country to go and see a hanging. • Now it chanced one day in the year 1818, that George Cruikshank was passing Newgate when a great crowd was gathered before it. His curiosity ; was excited, and he went forward and saw the ...

IMPROVEMENT IN THE ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 31 March 1914
IMPROVEMENT IN THE ARMY. The Army has changed almost be yond recognition during these past 30 years. Drinking is a dying vice; the careful officer of to-day is puzzled, we ..believe, chiefly how to prevent his young soldiers from injuring their health by smoking bad cigarettes and eating too many sweets! Mr. Blatch ford admits that the last time he examined troops closely he did not see a single "canteen face." And the val ue of the soldier's life for turning out men is higher than ever it was. Mr. Blatcbford, in his new book, "My Life la the Army," says of his own time:— 4,Th« change wrought by the Army life among the recruits was astonish ing. In four fconths lonls uecame sol diers; boys were transformed into' men. In June there tramped through the Parkhurst gate a mob of pale faced, weedy ragamuffins. In Septem ber those ragamuffins with-town stoop and the town slouch had become clean, well-groomed, alert, upstanding young eoldiors, with bronzed faces, muscu lar limbs, and bright...

At question time in'the.'Commons, Mr. Hall protested against the Minis ters making provocative speeches in the provinces.
