Spineless Cactus Imported [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

. Spineless Cactus Imported An American settler proposes to plant some shoots of a spineless cactus he has imported. This cactus is understood to be a newly created growth, probably the production of that eminent gardener, Mr .Luther Bur bank, who has cultivated new varieties of fruits and shrubs. He claims to have bred out the thorn from the cac tus, thereby transforming a pest into a fodder. Under a skilful experimen talist's watchful eye and in the narrow confines of a garden of a few acres, it may be kept true to name. But the .-nfe^^breed is too young to be judged. happen to it when planted in-ifw|S,e areas still remains to be seen, has a habit of reversion . to, n-tWe VJ)#mitive unless carefully watcheeV sSid cultivated. She runs wild when i^f^ets a free scope, and the i>pi^|T|^^act u s may and probably will type and take unto itself ; protective thorns which, in its wild state, keep its soft succulence from destruction. Moreover the cactus is a drought plant, a last resour...

State Secures Xioan Money talks. Nothing- shows the confidence, or want of it, like the fluctuations of the money market; and Victoria may congratulate herself on, the reception which her loan pro^po* sals have met in London. Why^tjie financial barometer should bre as- sen sitive as it is, no one knowjffM, Ii^^ise' and fall, for the most pa^t,? arej- in fluenced by entirely artificf^^^use-s.. Though securities may be M-ejn&n!' stratably good and permanenfT^T passing mood of the market—which every financier must know is only passing^—still has its money value. This being so, and computations on the exchange not being based on mathematical considerations, the State is justified in estimating its re putation as enhanced and as affording a concrete reply to the croakers who were pleased to regard our finances as in a shocking state, and a second-rate attraction in the eyes of investors Our credit stands high in the opinion of financial experts, and it appears that the tightness ...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

By "B. J.O." "Diplomacy" is not destined to have a long run at the Theatre Royal. The fact that the French play seems so clumsy and mechanical says much for the advance in dramatic craftsmanship which has taken place in the last few years, and it is now difficult to imagine what the critjcs of 30 years ago saw to admire ih the construction of such a play as "Diplomacy," Few of the situ ations seem real, and for the purpose of his story the dramatist is forced to make his characters behave in a most unlikely manner. There is, for. in stance, no special reason why Baron Stein should surrender so quietly the letter addressed to him by Dora's mo ther. And in spite of his reliance upon coincidence, Sardou has to make use of the clumsy device, of causing the real thief of the fortification plans to betray her guilt by means of-a perfume so strong that it causes a pungent odor to cling to everything she touches. This sort of thing is not convincing, and the acting of the principals, althou...

COMMERCIAL PRICES AND MOVEMENTS THE WEEK'S MARKETS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

THE WEEK'S MARKETS S After an advance last week the "wheat markets hav$ become somewhat quieter and slightly weaker in tone. After advancing substantially last week Liverpool futures have relapsed, but a slight recovery was re ported on Wednesday, Jan. 21 The broad world's position appears to be tfcat there is almost .certainly a decline in Argentina pro duction this harvest, and that India will have very little for export at next harvest, while the Australian surplus was le^s than was expected. As against this, the immense sur pluses of Russia and the United States must be taken into account. It has been known w>th a fair degree of certainty for some time past that the cur rent season's wheat crops of the world in the aggregate easily constitutes a record; although the exact extent of the increase will not be definitely determinable until later in the season, when the actual extent of Rus sia's supplies will become apparent after the Black Sea ports are free from ice.

Meanor bit fiercely at the end of her pencil and assumed a bantering tone. "That would sound very well, Mumsy, if you and I were on the stage, because then the leading man would turn up at the opportune moment and save us from such a dreadful fate. But there is no leading man on our horizon. Be sides, dear, we would not starve artis tically. I fear me the world w7ould not rise to the musical scores I am leaving behind. To starve in the cause of genius is to live ever after in poetry and romance, but to starve and leave only ragtime ditties behind is to get one line in the morning papers. I ab solutely refuse to starve for less than a column of space, so I think it's up to me to join the Lorelei Quartette." Mrs Whyte sat up suddenly, drying her tears.
