Disenchantment. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Disenchantment. Sir Robert Ball, the famous as tronomer, whose death occurred re cently, used to tdl a little story of an experience that he had when he was ait the Dunsink Observa tory. A farmer came to him one day, and asked if he might look at the moon through the telescope. - "Surety you can," said Ball. "Come round „ to-night, and I shall be very happy to let you see it through the telescope." "Can't I see it now,?" asked the farmer, surprised. ( "I .am sorry, that you cannot," said the astronomer. "You will have to wait until night." "Huh ! Then your old telescope, is not so great a thing as I thought it was !" cried' the' man, relieved from his illusion.'

The Ways of Society. RECEIVING ROYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

The Ways of Society. RECEIVING ROYALTY. A new book to which the "Lon don Evening News" draws atten tion is "The Ways of Society," by. Mrs. Dan vers llelano (Werner Laurie Ltd.), which is very amusing on things everybody knows, things not many people know, and things everybody ought to know. ' Not everybody knows, for in stance, that "the title of Honour-i able, though merely a courtesy title, ranks in order of precedence, and a young man bearing such a title is entitled to take his hostess into dinner when older men not so distinguished are present." There is a note for the older married woman; the younger has already taken it ' to heart : "Steadfastly avoid anything ap proaching anxiety about the viands. If the souffle has'sat down, study to preserve a passive demeanour; appear all the time as if you were not giving the dinner. A de tached^.air is the acme of good manners. . . .Do not frown nor instruct the servants during the repast; rather let things slide." The rules for receivi...

Record in Deep-sea Diving. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Record; in Deeprsoa Diving. •Vi ' 4 ' ' ■1. I The Italian „ Ironclad Reina Mar gherita lost an anchor and chain near the lisle of Scarpanto, in the-] Aegean Sea.' The depsh here was 38 fathoms (231ft.), and the iron embedded in liquid mud. No diver in the ordinary suit and helmet could work at such depths, and the Government decided to employ a Greek fisher, Hadji Statti Geor gius by name. Statti simply stripped and took a 301b. stone beneath his arm to aid his descent. This he. never abandons while under the water. It is attached to a cord, by which it is remounted when he gains ' the surface. The first day he dived six times. These were simply trial trips to test the exact depth, etc. On the second, day, five descents enabled him to fix a cord to the links of the chain. The third day, making five dives, he succeeded in lifting the chain several yards and finding the head of the anchor. A short steel hawser was fixed to this, and on the fourth day (after Hadji had been thrice to th...

Floral Islands. THE SCILLIES AND THEIR PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Floral Islands. ♦ THE SCILLIES AND THEIR PEOPLE. j Miss Jessie Mothersole, in her book on "Scilly"—has, of course (says the "Westminster Gazette") a good deal to say about the floral wealth of the islands. Geraniums and fuchsias, ... she tells, reach a great height, climbing to the eaves of the houses, and sometimes blos soming all the year round. It is ! .said that an islander once replied 1 with indignation to a stranger's tactlcss comment on the scarcity of wood, "Indeed, we can heat our ovens with our geranium faggots !" The book, which tells the story of the isles, their folk and their flowers, makes reference to the cheer ful kindliness of disposition among the inhabitants which at once makes the visitor feel quite at home. This kindliness is shown in many little ways, even where there would be much excuse for contrary behaviour. A visitor and his wife were once J trying to scale a stone fence—with I no evil intent, but all the same it was trespassing. An islander who was work...

AN EARLY EIGHTEENTH CENTURY IMPOSTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

AN EARLY EIGHTEENTH CEN TURY IMPOSTOR. On June. 23, 1703, William Ful ler, "Cheat-master General of Eng land," received a severe .sentence, after one of the most extraordi nary careers ever recorded. Fuller * was the son of a butcher at Milton, in Kent, and became an apprentice in London but wearying of the humdrum life, he disappeared - and was next heard of as page to Lord Melfqrd. Being of handsome appearance, he rose rapidly, and was able, by a series of frauds, • to be come possessed of some wealth. Then he began to pose, first as General Fuller, and, later oh, taking the title of.. Sir William Fuller. Finally he created himself a peer. For some years the butcher's son was treated as of the rank he .claimed to be, and at last his au dacity became so great that he ac tually wrote to the Speaker of the House of Commons, declaring that he had knowledge of some State secrets which had been confided Ito him by "his friend, the late King James." But in spite of his dis play and extra...

A MUSICAL FOUNDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

A MUSICAL FOUNDLING. The man to whom Great Britain is said to owe her National An them was a foundling. There is a t.tory which says he was the son of the Marquis of Halifax, but this is not likely to be true, otherwise, he would scarcely have known 'the extreme depths o^ poverty which jat time were his lot. Henry Carey—that was his name was a great satirist and a born musician. His was a moBt amaz ing personality, all contradictions, and although he himself could claim no one as parent, he scorned those of lowly birth. * A great deal of money was spent on his musical education by unknown and unseen hands, and Carey never knew from what source it came. Three famous musicians of. the day were his teachers, aHd they succeed ' v . ed in teaching him to be a failure at earning his own living. He be gan- his career by giving cheap les sons. Then he fell in love with the daughter of one of his rich pa trons; but her parents crushed his hopes in this direction so decisively that his life w...

LAW AND JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

LAW AND JUSTICE. 9 Bert Brown was a bricklayer whose even life had gone on un eventfully until one sad day he fell off a. high scaffolding, and had to he taken to the hospital. Now, the scaffolding was faulty, and Brown had -a good case for compensation; so, as soon as he could walk, he betook him to a lawyer and laid his case before him. The owners of. the scaffolding con tested the case—as is the way with owners—and in due course Brown and his solicitor made their way to the court, when the. jury awarded the bruised bricklayer compensation to the extent of £20. \ In "great jubilation Brown returned 'to the solicitor's office. It was then that the man of law really got to business. His costs and out-of-pocket expenses amounted to £18 19s. lOd. The balance he handed over to Brown, accompanied by a nice little speech. - Brown looked dazed. "By the way," he asked. "Which of us two was it who /ell ofl that there scaffold ?"

THE "FIRST GENTLEMAN'S" LAST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

THE '« FIRST GENTLEMAN'S " LAST DAY. The death of George IV. at Wind sor, June 26, 1830, was neither an event of much national import ance nor a cause of great national regret. While his instability of character kept him from exercising any real weight in State affairs, the immorality and double-dealing of his conduct had alienated all classes of the community. Through-, out. his long and unedifying contest with his wife, Caroline, the senti ment of the people had been strong-; ly antagonistic to him, and his constitutional insincerity and menda- i city excited the contempt of those in contact with him. , His last illness was painful and J. lingering, dating from early in the \ year, although for long secrecy was maintained thereon by those about him. His disease, . however, steadily increased until reticence j ceased to be politic, or, indeed, pos- \ sible, when late in March, he be- J came unable to take his customary j exercise in the Park. From time to time indeed, the Court org...
