CAN THE TITANIC BE RAISED? [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

CAN THE TITANIC BE RAISED? A scheme is on foot to raise the Titanic, the £2.000,000 liner that struck an iceberg and sank with im mense treasure. A Denver engineer has elaborated a plan by which he thinks the giant boat could be brought to the surface. In some steel mills electric magnets lift masses of steel and iron weighing as much as 150 tons. Why not adapt this idea to the Titanic? says the en gineer. His scheme is to lower all round the sunken vessel a large number of pow erful magnets operated from small steamboats, one boat to each magnet. These magnets, energised by electric currents, would be forced against the side of the steel ship. and when power was applied and the cables attaching the magnets to the smaller boats wound up, the Titanic wouId be lfted clear of the ocean bed and permit divers to make necessary repairs. pump the water out of the vessel, and get l er afloat again. Placing the magnets in position would be the work of divers descend ing in an electrlcally-co...

How Kipling was Interviewed in America. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

How Kipling was Inter viewed in America. ----+--- In Chicago. considerably more than twenty years ago, I obtained a chance interview fronm Rudyard Kipling. At that time Kipling, who was just beginning to achieve fame through his "Plain Tales from the lills" and ' Soldiers Three." had little use for this country. For one thing, he had tried to make a living with his pen in San Francisco, and had failed. Kipling was in a decidedly crab bed humour when he reached Chi cago on this occasion, and not with out , reason. He was on his way from Australia to England. On shipboard he had made up his mind that he would do no talking for n:ewspapers when he reached this country. He would not - see the San Francisco reporters who be sieged him. But some of them wrote "interviews" with him any how. In the main they were high ly ridiculous, imaginary interviews. and they put Kipling in a very foolish light. The same thing hap pened in Seattle. Cheyenne, Denver, Omaha, and other cities 'where he sto...

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. -t- reedingly anxious to Westernise his country, but it is rumoured that some of his subjects are not taking'kindly to the reforms. The latest step which the Amir has taken is to insist on the ladles of his Court wearing European clothes. Iecently dozens of elaborately-de signed costumes were ordered from Paris. hErly this year, says a Bombay correspondent, a representative of a Bombay tailor visited Kabul at the invitation of the Amir, and high-ciaass clothes to the value of £'.000 were sold to the ladies and gentlemen of the Court. -The ladies were not permitted to be seen per sonally or to be measured for their garmnents, but their measurements were sent out to the tailor; The ladlies selected their dresses fronm pictures of the latest Parisian fashions, and after the costumes had been suppliedil his Majesty gave a garden-party at which the dresses were displayed. Many amusing features about this craze for European.. dress are men tioned by the ...

Something to Weep For. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

Something to Weep For. Harry Lauder, the great Scottish comedian and golfer, told a very good story at a dinner in New York during his recent visit there. He was speaking about a great golf pruofessional "But he is ugly," Mr. Lauder said. "Dear me, he is ugly! He is as ugly as that sultan who had all the mirrors removed from his pal ace so that he might avoid thejalin of seeing his own face. This sultan called on his grand vizier one day, and by accident happened to catch sight of his refection. His hideousness over powered him, and he broke into violent sobblng. In this outburst the vizier joined. Finally the sultan calmed down, wiped his eyes, got ready to smoke and talk. But not so the vizier. He sobbed on and on. His master, tap ping his slipper impatiently on the cushions, waited for him to cease. At length the sultan got angry, and ex claimed, "Why do you weep longer than I, vizier?' 'Alas!' the grand vizier replled, 'you wept, O commander of the faithful, because you saw your...

THE DISCOVERY OF TROUSERS. A Hint from the Elephant. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

THE DISCOVERY OF TROUSa?RS. A Hint from the Elephant. To Alexander the Great, it is said, is due the discovery of trousers. It seems that the Conqeror had retired for a while, during his campaign in India, from his suite, and was ponder Ing in an open space of the jungle on the great riddle of life and the lit tleness of man, when he was aware of the contigultr'of an elephant, wild but friendly, with what he conceived to be its back towards him. As he looked he was struck by the negligence and ease with which this vast animal wears the skin on its legs, at once so loose and well-fitting, so serviceable and unpretentious. Feeling at the same moment a chilliness about his own knees, Alexander at once sig nalled for the court tailor and bade him make him a garment on similar lines. Alexander the Great improved the orfginal idea, in the press o0f bat tie, and his best trousers were care futly creased.

TELEPHONE TALKERS. What an Elecoution Teacher Says. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

TELEPHONE TALKERS. What an Elecoution Teacher Says. According to the trained ear of an elocution teacher, the persistent use of the telephone has done mtuch to improve the speech of the public in general and of women in particular. Whether or not this statement would stand the test in every case, it is certainly true tiat the woman addicted to the telephone habit unconsciously acquires something of beneflt not only in the carrying power of a well-modu lated voice and clearness of enuncia tion, but also in general directness ol expression, which such a limited con versation makes necessary. Any woman who doubts the truth of this statement has but to notice how quickly an intelligent maid employed in a home where there is much tele phoning will acquire a good speaking voice and an air of selfconfldence and personal dignity quite out of keeping with her original manner. It is noth Ing unusual nowadays for a prospect ive employer to inquire as to a maid's "telephone manner" before engag...

FAMOUS ECCENTRICS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

FAMOUS ECCENTRICS. Paganini had his share of eccen tricity. He feared no one. and when he was disposed to fly off at a tangent neither audience nor King could keep him in the regular orbit. In the reign of Louis Philippe he agreed to play at a .ourt concert announced at the Tuileries. Just before the concert he looked at the room. The curtains were hung so as to interfere with the sound, and he asked the superinten dent to have them properly arranged. The oticial paid no heed to the re quest, but so offended Paganini by his manners that the vi linaist deter mined not to play. The hour of the concert came, but no Paganini. At last a n.essenger was sent to his hotel. The violinist was there; but he had gone to bed. Paganini's eccentricity once caused him to be mobbed at Ferrara. In those days the common people of the suburbs of that little town looked upon the dwellers in the town itself as "a set of asses." Hence any yokel of the surburbs, if asked where he came from, never replied. ...

WORLD'S CHAMPION HEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

WORLD'S CHAMPION HEN. Will poultry-breeders ultimately succeed in producing a hen which will lay an egg every day? Such an ac complishment seems quite within the bounds of possibility, judging by the wonderful record established by Pro fessor James Dryden, who has suc ceeded in rearing a hen that has laid no fewer tL an 291 eggs in a year. Be fore this American accomplishment the world's record was held by Can ada, with a pure-bred hen that had laid 282 eggs In 365 days. The hen in question was hatched on April 29, 1912, and began to lay when only five and a-half months old. Not only is she a cross-bred bird her self, but the parent birds also were cross-bred. There was nothing extra ordinary in either of these, excepting the fact that the mother ben was a prolifle layer of eggs, a trait that has emphasised itself to an extraordinary dlegree in her offspring. No special care or attention was be stowed upon this abnormal egg-pro ducer. She was reared and fed with fifty others, with w...

A RAILWAY EXPERIENCE TRAVELLING IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914

A RAILWAY EXPERIENCE TRAVELLING IN INDIA. This amusing experience on an In dian railway is related by a writer in "Blackwood's: "Personally, I cannot sleep under a bright light, or indeed under any light at all. I was much annoyed, there fore, when we were safely bedded down. and the train had started, to inud that I could not put the light out. However, an old traveller is seldom at a loss. After tossing about for half an hour in a vain courtshlp or sleep I rose, and, litlh some difficulty, succeeded in securing a decent ob scurity by buttoning my trousers over one lamp and hitching my wife's skirt over thile other. Then, following the good example which she had already set, I fell asleep. "At some place whlich we reached about 3 a.m. there seemed to be an unusual scurrying of slippered feet on the platform and much excited chatter, as of those who seek room anld find it not. Some local ferstival no dou!bt or marriage feast was setting lith country folk astir. The door of our carri...
