PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE MAN WHO MADE MODERN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. ' ' v •' THE MAN WHO MADE MODERN PARIS. . ' The selection of Baron H&uss tnann as .Prefect of the Seine (a post analogous to that of the chair man of the London County Coun cilj on June 23, 1553, was appa rently just a iocal event of ordi nary' importance, but was destined to have world-wide significance. The modern science of "town planning" the twenty-century development of the nineteenth-century movement in favour of • " street improvements," was first carried thoroughly into practice, if not actually originated, by the man who transformed Paris from a Mediaeval town of tor tuous narrow streets to the modern stately and broad-thoroughfared me tropolis of France. The Emperor Napoleon III., who ' had long lived in exile, had been struck . by some of the London thoroughfares—Oxford-street and the Strand were noble < streets in those days—and with the necessity of dri\ iug wide avenuies up to the railway termini, which are the "city gates"...

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Local and General News. An enterprising English manufactur er made tv novel application of wireless telegraphy for business purposes. He equipped a smart delivery van with a wireless transmitter.

Bank-notes in Wrecks. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Bank-notes in Wrecks, j . Although the chances of being able to do so are considered doubtful, since she lies in seven teen fathoms of water, the Cana dian Pacific Railway have not yet abandoned all hope of refloating the Empress of Ireland. At any rate, every effort will lie made to recover £200,000 worth of silver, in 163 bags, which is still in the specierroom.of the- sunken liner. The most notable -salvage. Of sil ver during recent years was made after the Oceana sank in the Chan nel-in March, 1912, through col lision with, the Pisagua. The work was hindered by strong currents and tides, but during the succeeding three months silver worth over £500,000 was recovered at a very low cost. The Oceana was lying quit« upright; the Empress of Ire land turned turtle—obviously a very much more difficult position for salvage work. The £200,000 worth of silver, however; represents but a small portion of the money which went down with the ill-fat«d vessel; for thousands of pounds belonging ...

Royal Palace "Burglars." [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Royal Palace "Burglars-" The escapade of the adventartMB Londoner who, achieved notoriety recently by scaling the garden wall , and entering Buckingham Palace by I way o! the servants' quarters recalls , the story of the chemist's boy whom j Sydney Smith nicknamed "In-I-go" Jones, who three times in 1840 and 1841 gained access to the pal ace by a meanB never discovered, and on one occasion continued se creted there for several days. The first time Jones entered the palace he was actually .discovered under a sofa in a room next to that in which Queen Victoria was sleeping, and on the second occasion he was found in a recess. This se cond escapade led to him being sent to prison for three months as a rogue and vagabond; but even this punishment did not cure him of his •fondness for invading the palace, for three months later he tried to get into the building again, only to) be captured almost immediately by a constable on duty.

Criminals' Secret Slang. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Criminals' Secret Slang. v-— That the mwkm "Mwk" is a past master in the art of slang, ui can carry on a emwntiw with his confederates which rrovld puzzle Scot land Yard's cleverest linguist, is evident from the following account of an incident whieh was related to the writer. I quote the words exactly as I heard them : -"We saw a publican who we knew and whose ' lot' we admired. We ' tailed' . him round till he got in a ' scull' at a stall. We then started performing and lifted his ' kettle.' He had a ' daco ' round while we were on the job, but we lifted the ' tackle.' But it turned out to be ' DuSman Dick,' and, of course, it was a 'wash out.' But we drew a bit, and had the satisfaction of 'blewing' a ' dead can' who, according to his own idea was very smart." Puzzling though the terms quoted may seem, they are quite easily un derstood by the criminal fraternity. "Lot" means watch and chain, and any other jewellery which may be displayed by the victim, and "tail ed" is obviously ...

Painting Under the Sea. AN ARTIST IN PEARL-DIVER'S GOGGLES. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Painting Under the Sea. AN ARTIST IN PEARLrDKVER'S GOGGLES. What are undoubtedly the molt unique pictures in the world were, a short time ago, exhibited in a special salon in Chicago. These pictures were painted literally / at the bottom of the sea by Mr. Z. H. Pritchard, an Irishman by birth, now residing at Pasadena, Califor nia. As a boy Mr. Pritchard, who had a great ambition to. become an ar tist, spent a number of years on the north-east coast , of Scotland, where he learnt the delights of deep-sea bathing and diving. And it was the wonderful tones in blue and green, and the beauties of sea-life and vegetation which- he noticed while remaining for a few seconds under water while diving which led him, when he ultimately decided to devote himself to art, to endea vour to paint some of the true wonders of the sea. With this object in. view he devised an extraordinary set of, apparatus in order .. to paint pictures of the ocean's bed and the creatures which inhabit the water,' whi...

Hand-washing Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

Hand-washing Extra ordinary. . A Most people attribute the immen sely decreased rate of mortality in cases of severe surgical operations to the increased skill of the profes sion, to their greatly-improved in struments, and the more skilful nur sing which' is obtained in these days. But the surgeon himself would tell you that it is almoBt all a matter of absolute cleanli ness, the fact that nothing is left undone to insure absolute freedom from infection of any kind. This fact is - emphasised by the extraordi nary hand-washing regulations which ore in force at the various hospi tals. Everybody who is even re motely connected with an ap proaching operation is supposed to spend' twenty minutes in the all important process of washing his hands. , For five minutes the surgeon washes his hands with soap and water, and. then cleans his finger nails. When he has done this he spends another five minutes doing it all over again. But this is but a i preparation for -a third and far more drast...

WOOL GLASSING. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 23 October 1915

WOOL GLASSING. « The following are extracts from a paper on " Wool Classing" read by Mr Digby B Grist, before the National Sheep-breeders' Association, at the Nottingham Conference, 1915. The titIe9f thi8 papeF tnay.be mis leading to the ordinary farmer as many farmers do not discriminate between "classing" and 'faorting" and often the word "sorting" is used where only classing is meant. So let me say rlgh t away that classing is the first process to be applied to the fleece and is a work that any farmer, shepherd, or & man of ordinary intelligence can do. " Sorting however, is a trade that no one can attempt unlesa he has served his time to a wool stapler, wool merchant, or manufacturer who buys his own wool and sorts it for the different kinds of cloth he makes, Tb further define these two processes, I would say class ing; fleeces merely means keeping the coarse from the fine, the long from the short, the dirty from the clean, and the heavy from the light. These four simpl...
