DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

DARINO OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS Tremendous strides have been made of late years in the treatment of tuber culosis (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January iS). and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the sur gcons at Guy's Hospital, who, greatly daring, are declared to have made a remarkable advance in the treatment of certain forms of disease. Recent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chronic Ill-health, such as nervous debility. rheumatism, and other disorders, are due to poisoning set up by unhealthy conditions of the large intestine, and it has even been suggested that the lowering of vitality resulting from such poisonihg is favorhble to the develop ment of cancer and tuberculosis. It was felt that if the large intestine could be safely removed the result would be a tendency to healthy longe vity in the individual; but surgeons were deterred from the obvious opera tion by a knowledge of other functions performed by this part of the ...

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES (By Stephen Black, in "The Daily Mail.") The present trouble on the Rand, fromn where is drawn practically the whole of the world's regular gold supply, originated largely in the tragic deeds of last July 4 and 5. It may vaguely have come from still farther back, but shape and definition emerged six months ago. South Africa. the graveyard of states men's reputations, has problems which no other country on earth possesses; and the wisest men have failed time and again to cope with them. Certainly the Botha Government prior to last July understood little of the Hand's real soul; the soul of a wild, reck less race of men jumbled together among scholars, mining mathemati cians, younger sons, and other remlit tance men. Tile same spirits that re belied against the Kruger Governmetii and the children of these ilen are on the Rand to-day; and the fatality of their affairs is that the)' are governed as Kruger governed them-fronl a town only thir...

"'The chief reason for my presence in London to-day," he said to a "Daily Express" representative. "is pressure of private business. But, at the same time, whenever I come to London I am always glad of the opportunity to visit the theatres, for I am a great admirer of the English stage, and so it comes that I have made up my mind to see 'The Darling of the Gods.' in the hope that it might prove to be a suitable subject for an opera. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening. for I leave Englana for Italy at an early date. "I have seen 'Mr 1Vu.' and I liked it very much. both for its originality and the splendid manner in which it is sta.ed. "I may tell you," he a...

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (B3y Rear-Admiral A. T. Mahan, in "The Daily Maill.") The naval position of Great Britain is a composite of two distinct factors. These are the general International situation, in so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter ests or her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent the lefensive and offensive elements of a military situation. At the present moment the mere securlty of the British Islands is con ceived to be so far imperilled that it has prompted a radical change in the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around the islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to thlis, but directly related to it, has been the withtldrawal--the drawing back-of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its definite headquarters. Students of military hist...

COURT OF ARCHES LOST RECORDS DISCOVERED [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

COURT OF ARCHES LOST RECORDS DISCOVERED At a dinner of the Authors' Club on Monday (says "The Times" of Janu ary 16) Sir Lewis Dibdln, K.C., Dean of the Arches, gave an extraordin arily interesting account of the ad ventures of the lost or forgotten re cords of the Court of Arches. These records, which were kept in various places after the Fire of London, were removed ill 1865 from St. Paul's Cathedral to Lambeth Palace, where they lay buried for nearly 40 years "in a deep stratum of London soot and dust!" and the nature and value of their contents have only just been discovered. On becoming Dean of tile Arches in 1903 Sir Lewis Dildin did what he couldt to explore the room in which the documents were kept; but it was not until the sunmmer of last year, when hle was helped by the Rev'. Claude Jenkins, librarian of Lambeth, that he was able to go through them. They cover a period of 200 years, from 1660 to 1$56. and provide a set of precedents, about 2000 in number, de cided in the p...

SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

Sill ARTIIUlt SULLTVAN'S OIRI)EAL The death of Mr Francois Cellier, the Savoy conductor (says The Westmnin ster Gazette") recalls a drama:ic epi sode associated with the production of "Iolanthe' in 152. That opera was the first of the Gilbert and Sullivan series produced at the Savoy, and Sir Arthur Sullivan had arra~lnged willh .Ir Cellier personally to conduct the first perform ance. On the morning of tihe day fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich mnan. so successful had been the four oper:as which had preceded "lolanthe"; but just as he was about to leave home for the Savoy news reached him of the bankruptrcy of the firnm entrusted with his investments, and with that bankrupty the whole of his savings disappeared. But in spite of this heavy blow he went to the theatre and conducted "lilanthe" be fore a crowded audience. which little knew that thle falmous comlposer was then as poor as the lowliest scene shifter behind the scenes.
