One of the 'Weaker Sex.' [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

One of the 'Weaker Sex.' Under the new Republican regime the position ol the Chinese woman has been notably improved, nomi nally at least ; but it is highly improbable that any of the ad vanced" ladles of modern China will ever wield hali. the influence pos sessed by the old "Empress-Mother" Tseu-Hsi, the real ruler of tho Celes tial Empire for many yenrs. Her life was one long, though un edifying, melodrama. The daughter of a mandarin, born on November 17, 1834, she had a sister who was wedded to Prince Chouen. This Imperial connection fired Tseu Hsi's ambition ; she managed to at tract the Emperor's attention, and became one of his numerous wives. The birth of her son, Tsai-Chouen (the Quintessence of Purity) fulfilled her fondest hopes, and henceforth her baleful carecr really began. In 1S60 Tseu-Hsi poisoned the Emperor, and declared herself "Em press-Mother"^ and virtual monarch of China. Her first delicate atten tion to her deceased husband's rela tives was to send each a lltt...

Advantage of Being Black. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

Advantage of Being Black. Tho thickness of the negro skull was practically demonstrated re cently in a CQfe near tho Ploci I'lgalle, Paris. At one of tho tablef sat, the colored boxer "Jim" Johu son, who recently mot tho redoubt able champion "Jack" .Johnson. "Jirn" was tranquilly drinking a cordial and chatting with som< boxing chums when "Kid" Haw kins, another negro boxer, entered, and, walking lip to the table, madn some derogatory remarks, with the evident idea of provoking a quarrel. "Jim" Johnson's only reply was a shrug of the shoulders, whereupon "Kid" Hawkins, exasporated be yond control, seized a water-bottle, and flung it full at Johnson's head. The glass shivered on the negro's skull and foil in fragments on the floor. Some of Johnson's friends rushed at tho aggressor, but tho latter, deeming prudenco the better pnrt of valor, made for a taxi cab, tho windows of which lie broke in his hurry to get into the vehi cle.

King Edward Tickled. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

King Edward Tickled. Ferhaps one of the most amusing incidents which occurred nt the Uaymarket—the theatre with winch Mr. Cyril Maude has been so long associated—was that in which the late King Edward and poor Wil liam Terriss figured. The episode is refated by Mr. Alaude. 2t was during the run of " The Marriage of Convenience/' the last engagement but one for Terriss, as it happened, and His Majesty, then, of course, Prince of Wales, was in the Royal box with Princess Matt'l of Wales. . Between the acts King Edward sent for .Mr. Cyril Maude, his wife, and Terriss, being desir ous of expressing his gracious ap proval of their efforts to amuse. In describing the affair, Mr. Maude confesses that ho was not a little nervous, his conversational powers being nt their very worst. Things were consequently going very stilfiy when Terriss, in his cheery, sailor like manner, remarked, "We all hope rcrsimmon will win the Gold Cup to-morrow, sir." "Thank you, Mr. Terriss," replied His Majesty. ...

What our Forefathers Ate. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

What our Forefathers Ate. A German papor publishes nn tn * cresting articlc on tho lost dishes of tho middle ages. It seems that the art of cooking has declined, and that is in part due to tho changing fashions in food. For instance, in Germany in the middle ages many vegetables were eaten which have long since disappeared from the itihle, such as violet leaves, mixed with young nettles, thistles und green wheat, and boiled hemp seeds. Salads were made of mallow leaves, reiery roots and purslane, mixed with salt, and pepper, for oil was almost unknown. Olive oil whs considered to smack of efleminancy and Italian luxury. Horso-radish suuee was used instead. The ori gin of sauerkraut is lost in anti quity. Hut it was certainly invent ed by the German hausfrau long he fore cauliflowers or artichokes or potatoes were known. The potato revolutionised the fare of tlie poor, who had formerly to rely on the roots of wild plants. The variety of moats w'ns larger, including bea vers, and in t...

Native Superstitions. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

Native Superstitions. An incident which illustrates the power of superstitiiion over the na tive mind occurred some years ago nt a compound near Sterkfontein, Transvaal. Sickness—nn epidemic of ilvsentery in a mild form—had broken out among: the "hoys," and in. discussing the matter they camc to the conclusion that someone had cast a spell over the compound. A travelling witch doctor happened to call at the time and lie was im mediately requisitioned to "throw the bones," «nd thus to discover the witch. The itinerant rascal produced his bag", which contained monkeys' teeth, tigers' claws, rats' tails, snakes' vertebra#*, chicken bone-, and so on. Among the awe-struck occupants of the compound who gathered round was a boy who find been a sufferer from the prevalent complaint, and had been exceedingly anxious to secure the capture of the witch. The " doctor" threw the bones, and then appeared to cogitate deep ly, the profundity of his look being matched by the reverence reflected in t...

Everything had been wet through long: ago. The little kestrel falcon, with his long tail and his sickle wings, his brown back and bluish blunt bead, his very opposite to blunt, hooked beuk, and his sheath ed, aeronautical glance, sailed and tiailed in circles over the drenched land, and hovered and sailed again in silence. He had been doing that for hours, over eincc dawn, but he might as well have saved himself tho troublo by the look of it, for nothing had he killed. Ordinarily, lie would have lunched off field-voles, after a breakfast of, Rn.v, rut. However, "needs must when the devil drives," and, being ravenous, he was in no mood to pick and choose.
