LOST £4,000,000 WILL. Midnight Searches in Ruins of Welsh Abbey. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

LOST £4,000,000 WILL. Midnight Searches in Ruins of Welsh Abbey. Great interest has been aroused in the Vale of Llangollen, Denbighshire, by ac counts of supposed searches for the miss ii-g will of Anthony Pritchard, of Llanty ?silio Hall, who died leaving estates valued at £4,000,000, which went into Chancery in 1808, failing the appearance of the next of-kin. Anthony Pritchard was the first occu pant of Llantysilio Hall, which stands among the ruins of thc ancient Vat!s Crucis Abbey, near Llangollen. The as tates include Llantysilio Hall, the land on which stands St. George's Hall, at Liver pool, and large tea gardens at Calcutta.. Pritchard is said to have left a will in the possession of . the caretaker at Llantysilio jSall, whose name was Jones. Atfer the death of Jones, who appears to have exercised some sort of fascination ever Pritchard, a search was made for the will, but without success. Somc years ago his ' grave ' was twice reopened at midnight, and the coffin searched f...

ASPARAGUS. Is it Wholesome? [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

ASPARAGUS. - Is it Wholesome? In certain old textbooks of homely medi cine asparagus will be .i'ound described as a useful stimulant to the kidneys, aa. f-xercisir.2 aentlv sedative effects on the lieart, calming palpitation or nervous es- citement of -that organ; and the *fLancet'f i-.tates that comparatively modern_ ra i-earch confirms this, inasmuch as it haa demonstrated that asparagin, an active principle not peculiar to asparagus, bua present also in potatoes, marsh mallow,; liquorice, belladonna, and other plants; I* a palliative in the heart affections, whica :ire attended with -excited actioii of tha pulse. As to any effect upon tissue change there appears to be little or none, although: wme observers ? have definitely - asserted that asparagus freely eaten deters the p'J» irefactive proeess in thc intestine, and tliHE spares the proteins of food from de- struct ion.

The Mail. l&DELAIDE: MIDNIGHT SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1912. THE TRIAL OF KINGS. It is well that the reputation of de jparted kings and of statesmen should be brought to strict trial at the bar of public oninion. As the Governor recently said, the spirit of emulation and love of appro bation-are the. greatest forces which can be brought to bear .upon the execution of good work for humanity, and the fee1' ing that .a jest review awaits perform ance ,wiB tone ._ ambition in the highest places.

IN THE CRUCIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

IN' 'I'HH CRUCIBLE. Liberalism is in. the crucible. People of all parties are naturally interested. Sym pathy requires a- right understanding, and it should be observed at the outset that in the presence of a new situation all political parties-are, at the parting -of ways. Liberalism has. achieved political equality broadbased on universal . education. It is now confronted with an industrial de mocracy which appears- to be halting be tween two opinions,- whether reform is to advance by constitutional methods or re volutionary. While Liberalism was en gaged -in the enterprise of emancipation it -was a popular party of bold affirmation aad restless energy, but . since that task has been crowned with success it has been required to assume a role apparently less heroic of guarding the liberty won by challenging the fresh enthusiasms of youth untempered by- discretion or experience. Within the range of legitimate reform there is no vital .difference between the new industrial democracy ...

A FINE STORY OF THE GOLD RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

A FINE STORY OF THE GOLD BUSH. 'The Gold Bashes of the ESfties,' by W. E. Adcock; E. W. Cole's. Book Arcade, Adelaide.— This interesting little book is the work of a writer who more than 30 years ago began to collect the personal, ex periences of participants in the exciting scenes which took place on the early gokt fields, and some of these narratives are embodied in this work. It gives a good idea of the stirring years 185) to 1859, but it is unfortunate that some of the pages describing the ^rst finds of gold in Vic toria are ^nigging from the book, while other pages are duplicated. The earliest authentic instance of virgin gold being seen in l^elbourne was in March, 1847, but it was not till four years later that the first big find occurred. At the close of 1S53 no less than 28,060 people were dwell ing in or about Ballarat, where a. new chum 'unearthed the largest lump of gold that had ever been seen up to that time in any part of tie world so far as is known.'

CURRENT COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

CURRENT COMMENT. The mildewed tradition that the Bench is so steeped in legal lore as to have no knowledge of the colloquialisms of the masses is being nobly maintained by the   newly appointed Mr. Justice Murray. The other day a witness spoke of a man hav- ing a row with his "kliner," and wearing his mantle of judicial ignorance as to the manner born, his Honor sought the as- sistance of a mere barrister to explain the meaning of the term. And yet it seems only yesterday that Judge Murray was a common or barndoor K.C. himself, and probably not unversed in Australian slang at that. A Kliner is, in other words, A little Bit o' Fluff ; A Piece, a Donah, or a Jane. If that is not enough, Then say she is your Sunday Mash, Your Tart, your Twist and Twirl, And if they still don't understand, Explain that she's your Girl. * * * "It is difficult to see," shrieked the "Ad- vertiser" last Monday under the unneces- sarily alarming heading of "A Reign of Terror," "what is to be gai...
