NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 21 January 1914
NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MtISSIOf. Half the staff of what Is prerhaps the loneliest mission station in the w;or l is spending a brief furlough in En; land. That half-staff is the Rev. S. . Stewart of the Colonial and Con.inon tal Church Society, whose perm-nent address Is anywhere in Ungava, the great icebound province between La? brador and Hudson's Bay-a thousand miles further from civillsatlon than the scenesof Grenfell's work in Labrador. The extent of his remoteness from the ordinary twentieth century world mnay be gauged by the fact that letters nre delivered in Ungava once a year (says the "Dally Mall" of November Ci). WVHEN THE SHIP COMLES IN. "The most anxious moment of the year." said Mr Stewart. "Is when the Hudson Bay Company's vessel from England is sighted, and we are waiting to know whether she brings us good news or ill.

THINGS IN GENERAL Old hair brushes which have become soft can be made hard andl firm by dipping them In a solution of alum. What a man will do conscientiously for duty's sake, a woman will ,Io for the sheer pleasure of doing it, )Del,'nd upon it, even more tea would be drunk, even fewer whiskies andl sodas imulbibed, if each lady saw to it that really good tea was served in her hunse. The chief duty of German women ron:sta not in attenllng meetings and Jn.oi?n?g organlsations, but in placid w irk in thle house and the famfly, that thl.ey should bring up the young gener ;.tIon in obedience, and that they should make it clear to their children :h.t it is not the object of existence to ecjoy life at the expense.of Ethers.

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 21 January 1914
SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. The precautions against train wrecks set forth by .Major Pringle In his re port on the Aligill catastrophe, and his suggestions for minlm!s!ng loss of life :n any future accident, were ensured in advance of careful and critical public cxaminatlion. Mr. J. F. Gairns. of the "Railway agaz.ine." said yesterday (says the "Daily News" of Novembher 2) that there was a growving tendency to use dtoel underframes,. and a concideralle proportion of the rolling: stock of the important British railways was already so fitted. Shock absorbing buffers were already u.ed on the District to some extent, and were receolvIng the attention of railway managers throughout the country. In Amerlca they were in much more general use. and further Introduc tion here is probable. Of course, he said. the force of a col Ilsion has to be distributed somehow. If the carriages mount the frame the superstructure takes the force, hut if the frame itself has to stand all the shock, the e...
PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 21 January 1914
PERFORMINi ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS The discussion of the question of the treatment of performing animals has naturally aroused considerable in terest among our readers, with the re sult that the contents of our letter-bag have been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel J. O. Hawker calls attention to the current month's issue of the "Animals' Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian, and Mr C. E. Haverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify to the fact that the most horrible tor tures in very many Instances are in flicted upon performing animals. .Mr Melford contends that talk alone will not stir the pulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fall to raise an eyelid, let alone a hand to help. It is necessary for the public to be convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty exists, and then judgment and punishment will quickly follow. And as a consequence, to quotehis own words, "the infernal master an...
