CHRIST'S LIFE ON EARTH ALLEGED LETTER OF LENTULUS To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
CHRIST'S LIFE ON EARTH ALLEGED LETTER OF LENTULUS To the Editor I am, Sir, &c OLIVER D. JONES. Henley Beach. Sir—In reply to R. Barrett's letter, in which he supplies an excerpt giving a personal description of Christ from a letter written by Publius Lentulus to the Roman Senate —has this letter been subjected to the higher criticism of historical documents? A number of similar records were written years afterwards by priests and artists for fraudulent purposes of their own. As regards the truth of this description Lord Acton, late Professor of History at Cambridge University, says the main thing in history is not the art of ac cumulating material, but the sublimer art of investigating it and discerning truth from falsehood. The accession of the critic in the place of the in defatigable compiler is a change in the historic realm. For the critic is one who when he lights on an interesting document, begins by suspecting it until he has subjected it to three operations. First, ...
ZEBRA IS LION'S NATURAL ENEMY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
ZEBRA IS LION'S NATURAL ENEMY BURCHELL'S Zebra (Equus burchelli) inhabits the open plains of Africa. These animals usually associate in herds of from a dozen or so up to two hundred. The zebra is the lion's natural enemy. If the herd comes to know that a lion is in the vicinity, it usually stampedes in a state of blind terror, and frequently charges through fences and crops, doing untold damage. In Africa zebras are listed by the Government as vermin. Only one species of zebra—the Grevy's zebra— promises to be of any use as a draught animal. All other species are practically useless and will revert to the wild state at the first opportunity. They can be tamed easily enough, but the tempta tion to rejoin the herd when it comes within scenting distance is usually too great for them to resist. The common or mountain zebra is broadly striped. Grevy's zebra occurs in Somaliland and Shoa, and is con siderably larger than the mountain species. The ground color is almost white and th.c stri...

THE DARDANELLES [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
THE DARDANELLES "The Question of the Straits." by P.P. Graves. London: Ernest Benn. In these two hundred pages Mr. Graves, for some years correspondent in the Near East for the London "Tunes," summarises the long story of the Dardanelles from the time it was first known to history three thousand years ago. This channel eepaiating Europe from Asia takes its present name (it was formerly known as the Hellespont) from the ancient city of Dardonus. inhabited by the race known as the Darcani. Its value for offensive purposes was brought home to Europe almost as soon as its control passed from the Byzantine to the Turkish Empire, and its ultimate destiny became the principal phase of tbe Eastern question. It had much to do with the Great War, which was largely the outcome oi the attempt of Germany to acquire through her friendship with Turkey a predominant position in the s trails to the serious detriment of Russia. After the treacherous retirement of Russia from the war, tnere was some h...
POINTS FROM LETTERS Soldiers' Pensions [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
POINTS FROM LETTERS Soldiers' Pensions From "Hardworking Mother":—I quite hold with "Citizen's Batman" that a pension should not be paid to the wives and children of returned men. A limbless soldier should get a pension, but not his wife or children. They are only absorbing what other returned men could be having. Most [ of the limbless men are having a good pension and a good regular job, with wages of about £3 15/ or £4 5/ a week. ? The pension and wages should be suffi cient to bring up a family on. lam ' :he mother of three returned men, not ; one of whom has ever had a penny i from any of the soldiers' funds.

"LEOPARD MEN" OF THE JUNGLE EXPERIENCE OF EARL'S DAUGHTER Strange Romances of Jewels [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
"LEOPARD MEN" OF THE JUNGLE EXPERIENCE OF EARL'S DAUGHTER Strange Romances of Jewels Varied to suit all tastes, and dramati- cally interesting, the stories and special articles in to-day's "Express and Jour- nal" maintain the high standard set by Adelaide's favorite week-end maga zine newspaper. A curious account is given by Lady Dorothy Mills of her ex periences with the "Leopard Men" of South Africa. The latter are a canni bal tribe, reputed to be able to trans form themselves from man to leopard. It is sheer imagination, or coarse, but Lady Dorothy's tale of the shooting of a "Leopard" chief makes one wonder whether the days of black magic are past. The famous woman hunter successfully stalked one of these savage beasts, and the same bullet, sbe was told, drilled the brain of the leader of the "Leopard men, other outstanding features are:— Romances of Eoyal Jewels^-When :he Grand Duke Nicholas of Russia saw f^nny Lear he losi his heart to the actress, and purloining his mothers f...

and Register ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1931. WHAT IS PROGRESS? To most people the hurry and pres- sure of modern life, aggravated by the difficulty in these times of stress of "making two ends meet," afford scant' leisure for the deliberate survey which takes stock of the achievements and acquisitions of humanity and strikes a nicely-adjusted balance between loss and gain. Questions such as "Are we | healthier than our grandfathers? Is religion on the decline? Is genius i becoming extinct? Does womankind j tend to fall into unwomanliness?" re ceive a good deal of attention. But the wider outlook, which asks to what goal it is that the sum of our activities is moving, few have time, or perhaps inclination, to cultivate, and it is sel dom, therefore, that we have the sub- j ject brought before us so suggestively j and exhaustively as it is by "A Cosmo- j politan Observer" in last month's I "English Review." Sterne pities the man who could travel from Dan to Beersheba and cry "T...

WOOL MARKET TURNS THE CORNED "On Safe Basis Now" MR. CHEADLE EXPECTS LARGER CLIP THIS YEAR [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
WOOL MARKET TURNS THE CORNED "On Safe Basis Now" MR. CHEADLE EXPECTS LARGER CLIP THIS YEAR Although there might be a set- back, should the rate of exchange drop from £30 to, say £20. the wool market seemed to be on a safe basis now, said Mr. T. S. Cheadle (director) at the half-yearly meet ing of Bennett & Fisher, Ltd. yes terday. They could expect a larger wool clip in South Australia during the coming year. "We have been through a serious and depressing time in the wool business for the last 2£ years," he added. "Since October. IS2B, when the boom really be gan to collapse, the market has de clined steadily. Where we were accus tomed to get £20 to £25 for a hale of wool, now we have to b3 satisfied Kith. an average of £8 to £8 10/—pre-war prices, of course, the wool during the last 12 months has been grown in very droughty conditions, and thus has de preciated in value considerably."

NEW SYSTEM OF WATER RATING PROPOSALS OF WORKS COMMITTEE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
NEW SYSTEM OF WATER RATING PROPOSALS OF WORKS COMMITTEE A new system of water rating will be brought before Parliament in the approaching session. The object is to adjust the losses now incurred in unre- produciive works, and place the whole undertaking on a better footing. The Public Works Committee has spent a considerable time investigating the position, and a special report wiil be made to Parliament next month. The enquiry has been an exhaustive one, embracing city and country, and a revised scale of rating will be recom mended. It is estimated that South Australia at present is losing between £60.000 and £70,000 a year on its waterworks. The profit made in the metropolitan area is more than absorbed by the losses on ser vices in the country districts, which are said to be approximately £300,000. The revised form of rating, if adopted, should make the waterworks as a whole a profit-earning department. This is expected to be accomplished without undue hardship in any district. A...
SIR ISAAC ISAACS AT CANBERRA First Visit Since Appointment Canberra, February 27. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 28 February 1931
SIR ISAAC ISAACS AT CANBERRA First Visit Since Appointment Canberra, February 27. The Governor-General (Sir Isaac Isaacs), accompanied by Lady Isaacs and Captain Bracegirdle, Military Sec- retary, arrived in Canberra by the ex- press from Melbourne to-day, on his first visit since his appointment. No formalities were observed, and Sir Isaac was met only by a few officials, no Ministers being present. After shak ing hands the Governor-General left by car for Yarralumla, where he will take up residence. The Minister for Home Affairs (Mr. Slakeley), who usually welcomes dis tinguished visitors, left for Sydney last night, but was represented at the sta tion by the secretary of the depar ment &lt;Mr. Percy Deane). The Prime Minister and Mrs. Scullin arrived by the same train, but travelled in an ordinary sleeping compartment, the Goi'ernor-General's party having been accommodated in the viceregal .car.
