FEMALE DETECTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

FEMALE DETECTIVES. The adoption of women as police may be followed by a similar course in London. Scotland Yard, however, has, of course, employed women for years, and one of the officials there told an interviewer recently that it is probable that more women will be employed in the future to deal with certain kinds of inquiries and cases. "The old Idea of the policeman's wife being used for detective work," he remarked, "is quite antiquated. At tho present moment there are special ly-trained women working on cases in London, and each carries with her a email card which can be shown to any one who questions her authority. Wo men detectives had their share in the campaign against fortune tellers in the West-end, and where women are to be watched and shadowed it is ob viously impossible to employ men for the work. Some valuable information in regard to the activities of suffra gettes was gained by women, but it would be fatal to their usefulness if these female detectives were to don ...

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" Is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is the actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can give it in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just oxactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile.

A man named John Mays, 37 years of age, employed on the Ilampdenshire stone-crushing plant, had his skull frac tured by some means on Wednesday night of last week and died the following morning. The crushing outfit had camped in a paddock on the Stony rises, about five miles along the Lismore road. Mays occupied a tent by himself, and on Wednesday night was found, by two of his workmates, in a half-conscious state just outside his tent. They picked him up and laid him on his bunk, where he remained the rest of the night. In the morning his condition was so bad that Dr Barrett was sent for. He found that the man's skull was badly frac:Lured, and ordered his removal Lo a local private hospital, but as he was being taken thither lie died. Dr Barrett, declined to give a death certificate, and Sergeant Itogerson, of Baliarat, and Constable Kirk, of Linton, went to Skiptou to assist Constable Cawsey in investigating the circumstances of the fatality. Dr Barrett made a post mortem examinat...

Whitehall," o£ Union Bridge, Maryland (U.S.A.), in going to the wrong bank, has re vealed that he is the possessor of a deposit of £200, and interest, amountr ing to nearly £300. The money has long awaited a claimant. Seventeen years ago Mrs. Sarah White hall deposited £200 in a bank, and three years later she died. The bank officials made inquiries, but could never find the next of kin. A day or two ago Mr. Whitehall had business at the Farmer' and Mechan ics' Bank, but went instead to the Frederick County Bank, where it wae found that the money was hie.

A Woman's Way. "To begin with, what is your age, madam?" was the lawyer's question. "My own," she answered, promptly. "I understand that, madam; I mean, how old are you?" "I am not old, sir," with indigna tion. "I beg your pardon, madam. I mean, how many years have you passed?" "None; the years have passed me." "How many of them have passed you?" "All. I never heard of them stop ping." "Madam, you must answer my ques tion. I want to know your age." "I don't know that the acqu lint ance is desired by the other side." "I don't see why you insist upon re fusing to arfswer my question," said the lawyer, coaxingly. "I am sure I would tell how old I was if I were asked." "But nobody would aslc you, for everybody knows that you are old enough to know better than to be ask ing a woman her age." And the lawyer passed on to the next question. Do not hunt for temptation Just for the sake of wrestling with It.

"BUFFALO" JONES. KNOWS WHAT ANIMALS THINK. Colonel "Buffalo" Jones, the fam ous American huntsman who in his time has captured lions, rhinoceroses, hippopotami, and panthers alive and unhurt with a lasso, has gone at the head of an expedition to the French Congo to attempt to bring home to Europe, for the first time, u full-sized gorilla. W. Beach Thomas in Lon don "Daily Mail" writes as follows about this remarkable man: Buffalo Jones is certainly the most astonishing conqueror of animals that has ever lived: Daniel and Samson, as Mr. Roosevelt said, were nothing to him. I jisked him the secret of some of these conquests, his scientific as well as his physical conquests, which make tame anything that Ballantyne or Mayne Reid concocted; and at the age of seventy he is setting out with a list of new adventures that would more than fill an ordinary lifetime. The conquests are as various as notable. He has roped almost every wild animal there is-rhinoceroses, lions, cheetahs, zebras, g...

A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. Next to Alexander the Great, who in his youth subdued Bucephalus, per haps the most famous of all horse breakers was John Rarey, the Ohio ian, who died at the age of 38, after, having amassed a fortune by his skill. With the awakening of his mental energies, the boy realised that there was something wrong in the preval ent method of Breaking horses. His childish soul recoiled at the cuffs and blows with which drivers were wont to subdue their animals. Throughout his schooldays the subject of his com positions was "Man's Best Friend-the Noble Horse." His most ambitiouB effort was a rhyme, in which he sang the. gospel of "kindness, patience and firmness' in dealing with the brute creation. The turning point in his boyhood came on his twelfth birthday. His father, now an oxtensive dealer in horses, presented to him an unbroken poYiy, which the lad proceeded to train aiter his own ideas. Little attention was paid- to his manoeuvres with the pony until neighbors b...

A mar-' ried couple registering as "Mr. and Mrs." may travel in the double berths, ~ but when they are not fully booked up in this way the-clerks assign them to two persons of the same sex.

FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. A boy of twelve was found wander ing one day in the fields near Genoa, Italy, by an Austrian police agent, and was roused from a mood of abstrac tion by the question, "What are you doing?" "Thinking," was the terse re ply. That evening, his father, a pro fessional man already under suspi sion for the same offense, was inform ed of his son's occupation, and told also that the Austrian government did not permit of "thinking" by its sub jects. That was about the year 1820. A few years after the boy was in pri son-still thinking! In the year 1849 all the roads to Mi lan were filled with armed and march ing columns-made up, not of Aus trians, but of Italians. On the main one running toward the Mediterranean the heaviest body was moving. A great stir was visible one morning. A tremendous shout was heard down the entire line. It was taken up from bi'fgade to company, from hamlet to hamlet, village to village, town to town, as the stirring report was heard, and ...
