M'CCMB'S ABILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 5 September 1914

M'CCMB'S ABILITY. "They may say what they please about Warden McComb and his jute faictory, but I saw him do something one day that made me admire his executive ability," remarked an ex-San Quentin guard, as he blew the smoke from his cigarette into the face of a lady passing along Kearney-street yesterday. "W\Vhat wonderful thing was that ?' asked a politician who had been refused employment at the most popular peni tentiary in California. ' It was rather amusing," continued the other, "and nobody but MIcComb would ever have thought of it. Late one afternoon we got word that Governor Waterman 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." "Of course, we all applauded. We had to do that...

HE DEFRAUDED THE BAR-. KEEPER. Charles Gershakeris a man of enter prise and would have been thrifty in' the course of time if Captain Short. had no, stepped in and put a charge of obtaining money under false pretences against hitm on the prison register. Mr. Desabar 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 5o cents' worth of drinks from him last night, giv ing him a 5-dollar 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 promise to pay. And then he howled, and the police came around 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 firontom the old coun try who are not yet familiar with the...

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

CONCERNING JAPANESE ART: " There is quite a revolution going on in Japanese art," writes 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 Gallery. Like all revolutions, it has kept the partisans to the contest in a per petual turmoil fora number of years. For fifteen years there has been prevailing in Japan a sort ofsemi-foreign school of art, caused by the efforts to introduce the. pencil instead of the brush for drawing. In consequence of this, much of the, power of designing that was so charac teristic ot Japanese art has been sacri nced without any commensurate gain, "A strong effort has been made during e last few years to restore Japanese art i preserve its characteristic feeling, ile at the same time adopting some of. e features of foreign art, such as per spective. It was for this purpose that the Japanese Government sent me abroad four years ago at t...

THE FARM. BIRDS V. INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 5 September 1914

THE FARM. BIRDS V. INSECTS IN Nature there is a general over-ruling iaw which is roughly stated in the com omon saying, "The weakest must go to the wall," the action of which is very self. '-vident to those who have given much attention to the study of birds and insects. iet is only when man so modifies Nature that the law does not have free action that the balance is destroyed and evil iresults. Insects, as well as the birds, doubtless have their proper place to fill in the great scheme of creation, and, like many things else, when held within bounds are for the common good. ".When the cat is away the mice will. play." So when the birds are scarce the insects abound, sometimes to our dis comfort, and even dismay. I do not want here to make any plea for the protection of birds on the grounds of beauty o.their form or colouring, or the sweetness of their songs, but upon the purely utilita rian basis of guardians of crops from, the destructive workings of the various in jurious insect...
