BULL-FIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

BULL-FIGHTING, j A modern Englishman seldom" thinks of bull-fighting without some-j thing of a shudder ; yet it is not so very long sincu we as a nation patronised sports that were even: more barbarous. So short is the in-; terval that has elapsed that the ar rangements for carrying on bull baiting and cock-fighting can still be seen in some of the older vil large, particularly those which are remote and not subjected to tie in i road of the holiday-maker. One | village at least there is in the North of England where you may see the stone with the ring still attached to it, where bull-baiting was the ordinary amusement of a holiday. In this place, also, the cock-pit (which, by the by, is not a cockpit, but a raised platform) stands adjacent to the bull-ring on the same green. Both of these amusements brought out what was the most highly prized quality of the old-fashioned Knglishman—pluck and endurance. There was no skill in the mastifl or bulldog which was brought to ileal with the...

Bird Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Bird Hospital. There is in New York the tiniest hospital in the world. All sorts of feathered patients lie in the wicker baskets, filled with soft white cot ton and supported on. tall wicker stands, that form the beds. The owner and director of the hospital, a lady, knows how to take care of birds, and she acts as surgeon, nurse, and druggist all in one. There is an opera ting-rooom, 'with all kinds of small sterilised instru ments, fairy-like ccsts and splints, a sun room where the birds may flutter back and forth in a bower of green, and a tiny delicatessen store stocked with fat wriggly worms in small glass bottles, hun dreds of brilliantly-coloured dragon flies, and just the right kind of seed for each patient's diet. Every one of the birds loves "Doc tor" Pope—the lady's name is Vir ginia Tope—and when she passes, on her morning rounds rows of little feathered heads bob up' over the sides of the baskets, and dozens of ' bird voices—some of them very faint and weak, others loud ...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Castor-oil is a good remedy for soft corns. A picee of cotton-wool should be soaked in the oil and ap plied between tho toes, heing kept in place with a bandage all night. For chronic night cough try taking a teaspoonful of whisky and puro glycerine in equal parts. Tills can bo kept in a bottle by the bed in case of need, and will be found invaluable. Cut off the rinds and souk rashers of bacon in cold milk for an hour. Take them ,out, dredge well with 'flour, and fry in fat. This is a deli cious improvement on the ordinary method of frying bacon. Old - putty can be removed with out injury to the sash or glass by passing a hot . soldering iron over it. The heat of the iron softens it readily, and permits its removal with a • knife or chisel without much trouble. ~ When marking linen,- first write the name in blacklead pencil, then mark over the pencil with marking-ink.

THE WILY CHINEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

THE WILY CHINEE. ► There are many Chinese who know, from various sources, the glorious opportunities existing in Australia for the industrious worker. But white Australia does not admit the Chinaman, except under special 1 circumstances, and the tricks resort ed to by the Celestial are often clever and cunning. The captain of the vessel which lunds these pro hibited immigrants is liable to a fine of iilOO for every Chinaman travelling to Australia by his ship, but even this precaution is not al ways effective. Wong Ming Chew, who was re cently deported from Australia as a prohibited immigrant, had a varied career in the Commonwealth, sometimes under the alias of » Fat Pong. Ostensibly, Wong Ming Chew reached Australia on October 2, 1908, to study business methods. Ilis friends deposited £100, the agreement being that Chew was to remain one year in the Common wealth. But on September 21, 1909, he went to Tasmania, and, under the name of Fat Pong, he seems to have made influential fri...

The Miner's Rat. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

The Miner's Rat, 1 During a reccnt inquiry into an accident on one of the Hand mines, an old miner giving evidence was asked : "You refused to work at this place ; why ? Dill you notice any thing wrong ?" He replied : " No, sir, but I know the ground must ho bud ; the rats were all leaving it." Except among miners, few peoplo on the Rand appreciate the old sai lors' belief that "rats desert a sink ing ship" is just as strongly held by old miners. Spoken to a few days ago, one miner said : " All old miners know that rats will never stay where there is caving ground, j Old miners will always tell you that, whether they como from England, | Australia, or America. When an old miner notices that the rats arc going, he always tries to find out ! what is wrong. 1/ he can't, he generally has enough sense to got out himself." Rats are to be found in very large numbers in all old workings on tho Jteef;_ their forbears probably went below originally in boxes of candles or other stores. • Miner...

The Tramp Cyclist. Eustace had a bicycle. Eustace lind something else, too—he had a profound contempt for "yokels," as he called the inhabitants of the country. Eustace was on his first bicycling tour, and felt quite an adventurous dog. One morning he was lean ing against a gate, smoking a pipe, which he tried hard to be lieve was as pleasant as it looked, when one of the despised yokels came along. " That there thing's a bike, ain't it, mister ?" said he. "It is, my man," answered the pa tronising adventurer. "Do you think you could rido it ?" "Ay," replied the bucolic one. "Anybody could !" "Oh. indeed ! Well, you try and rido this one and see how you get; on. It's /not as .easy as you' think, my man 1" I Up jumped the yokel and rode off. | When ho had gono about twenty | yards he turned gracefully in ^ tho | saddle and called to Eustnco : "You'll find tho biko by the church-] yard, threo miles down the road 1 j I'm in a hurry !"

A Cataleptic Insect. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

A Cataleptic Insect Professor Schmidt, of the Im perial University of St. Petersburg, now demonstrates, after a long and patient observation, that an in sect, the carausius morosus, has the surprising property of placing itself in a perfect state of catalepsy. The insect is found in the north of India and in Afghanistan, but can also be raised in lOuropean labori tios. As in other insects of the some family, it imitates twigs and branches, and has a long form so that its appearance closely resem bles a tree twig. It is a nocturnal insect and is only active after the sun sets, being i|uite motionless during the day, having a green co lour, and is thus hardly to be dis tinguished from the parts of the tree on which it remains. It was sup posed that, the insect was in a state' of sleep or of simple inac tivity or repose, but Professor Schmidt now proves that it is really in a state of eivtalepsy. for the muscles can now be handled just "as wax and made to take any po sition, such as is...

Mr. Ahern Decline's : PROPOSED PRESENTATION. | WITH SINCERE THANKS. ! No doubt keenly mindful of the blatant, fatuous promises made by irresponsible nobodies a little over i twelve months ago, when feasting I at the dollar banqueting table, in words to tbe effect that "Ahem could hold the Iudi seat as long as he liked," and so on, Mr. Ahem makes sure that be will have no further display of banqueting " fire works." A number of supporters, some perhaps with a genuine motive of publicly appreciating Mr. Aheru's services in and out of Par liament during his 12 months' stewardship, felt they would like to tender him something in recognition, and particularly to recoup that gentleman for his out of pocket expenses incurred in the recent campaign. Mr. Saudford, hon. secretary to the central committee, approached Mr. A hern in the matter, but Mr. Ahern, while fully appreciating the action of his friends, could not see bis way to fall in with their wishes.
