CONCERNING JAPANESE ART. [Newspaper Article] — Sandringham Southern Cross — 5 September 1914

CONCERNING JAPANESE ART, "There is quite a revolution going on in Japanese art," writcs Professor E. F. Fenollosa, who has been a resident of Japan for the past twelve years, and who was recently appointed to take charge of the Japanese Section of the Boston Art lallcry, Like all revolutions, it has kept the partisans to the contest in a per petual turmoil for a number of ycars. For fifteen years there has been prevailing in Japan a sort of semi-foreign school of art, caused by the efforts to introduce the pencil instead of the brush for drawing. In consequence of this, mush of the power of designing that was so charac teristic ot Japanese art has been sacri nced without any commensurate gain, " A strong eflort has been made during e last few years to restore Japanese art - preserve its characteristic feeling, ike at the same time adopting scme of e features of foreign art, such as per spective. It was for this purpose that the Japanese Government sent tme abroad Four years ago at t...

FRUIT IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sandringham Southern Cross — 5 September 1914

FRUIT IN CALIFORNIA. The good prices received for fruit are the best features of the present outlook for Cailifornia. The readiness with which the increased crops are being disposed of at higher rates than before will encourage every grower. It is the best possible answer to the predictions that firuit growing was being overdone. Hundreds of new orchards came into bearing this year (I890), yet there is a good market for all that can be furnished. With the existing demand the country would take double the product, fresh and dried, that California can offer. It is fairly certain that the demand will keep ahead of any supply that the State can bring to mar? ket,

M'CCMI'S ABILITY. "'They may say what they please about Warden McComb and his jute factory, but I saw him do something one clay that made me admire his executive ability,," remarked an ex-San Quentin guard, as he blew the smoke from hIis cigarette into the face of a lady passing along Kearney-street yesterday. " What wonderful thing was that ?" asked a politician who had been refused employment at the most polpular peni. tentiary in California. " It was rather amusing," continued the other, "and nobody but McComb would ever have thought of it, Late one afternoon we got word that Governor Watertmant was to visit the prison next day, What did McComb do but call out several hundred men and start them into changing the garden plot along the principal walk, They tore up the lawn until we who were looking on thought it was going to be ruined, but at last we saw what it all meant, for there in mas sive green letters stood out the word " Waterman."

Charles Gershaker is a man of enter prise and would have been thrifty in tht course of time if Captain Short had now stepped in and put a cliharge of obtaining money under false pretencies against himin on the prison register. Mr. D)csabar keeps a saloon. How. ever intimate his knowledge of mix. ology may be, his knowledge of bank notes is somewhat scant, and when Ger. shaker and his friends bought 50 cents worth of drinks from him last night, giv. ing him a 5-dolltr bill and getting ,4 dol. lars 50 cents in change, they got a long way off before Mr. Desabar discovered that the note was a Confederate peomnise to pay. And then he howled, and the police came arounl and and Gershaker was pointed out eventually and taken before Captan Short, who booked him with considerable elation, as the captain has been on the lookout for a number of men who have lots of Confederate money and pass it oft on new importations from the old coun try who are not yet fam...
