Horses and Men. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

Horses and Men. A 13oston man tells rof an inno cent farmer who once ao ig'it cut a phrenologist at thle Hub ani esked thalLt his "bumps :)be road." In revealilng to .the farmer his tenm:erarnent as s'ho n . ,y he aforesaid bumps, the professor said : " Your tastes are the simple, homiely ones of the farmer. You are a farner, are you not ? Ah ! I thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, am I not? You are sadily deficient in judgment, and have little knowledge of human na ture. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dulpe to designing men, a)1(l your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or defraud ing anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist hought a horse from the innocent farmner. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, it had been made to appear young and skittish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £5 for the uni mal, he contrived without diull culty to unload him on the pro fessor for £15. "It's wonderful,...

Phantom Monoplane. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

Phantom Monoplane. The first air-ghost has just been encountered on Salisburv Plain by one of the most skilful of our Arnmyv aviators, who went up on a mono plane on a cloudy day accompanied by his mechanic. The aeroplane en tered the clouds, and the pilot was continuing his flight, in themn, whdn suddenly he discovered another nmo noplane, no more than fifty yards away, coming straight towards hint out of the mnist. He dived almost vertically, and after a headlong de scent levelled out once more, but his relief was only momentary. The other pilot must have performcd exactly the samen manoeuvre, for no sooner was he speeding along again on a level keel than he saw the monoplane once again looming out of the mist, heading straight towards him. Terror-struck, the pilot dived again, emerged below the clouds, and forthwitli landed. Not until then did the - explanation strike him. He had fallen a victim to an hallucination of the clouds fa milar to every Alpinist, and seei his living sha...

THE JANITOR IN VIENNA. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

THE JANITOR IN VIENNA. ------+-- The janitor of a Viennese apa·a ment house is, in a sense, the mon arch of all he surveys. The Viennese who does not wish tc be out of -pocket must keep early hours. After 10 o'clock at n;ght he is taxed on cntering his own house or apartment, or for the matter o. "that any house or apartment. The "sperrgeld" or door-opening tax is not peculiar to Vienna, but is alec found in other capitals of Europe. The 2.000,000 residents of the Aus trian, capital are practically im prisoned in their ou n homes from 10 o'clock in the evening until sis the next morning. They may go in or out only. by paying the equivalent of a penny to the .anitor or, as the Austrians call him, the housemaster. Now Vienna is built on the flat or apartment house plan. Rich men and working people alike live in quar ters of this kind. The houses are large, having five or six floors, usual ly with four fiats on a floor so that not infrequentiy there will be upward of 100 persons living...

MATS FOR WASHSTANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

MATS FOR WASHSTANDS. Recently I mentioned the uses to which bath towelling - mighr be put, and now I add a new sugg ssion. A set of mats for a smarl~. topped washstand can be made of tie better parts of a worn bath towel. of which the middle always gives out first or new material can be used. Cut it dnto rounds to suit the size of the wash-basin, and the smaller articles bf crockery-ware. Hem the material, and finish the edge with crochet, worked in macrame thrcad or em broidery cotton, choosing the co lour to suit that of the room the mats are intended for. Bath towel ling being thick and soft is best for the purpose, not only because it washes quickly, and well, but for the more important reason, that it interposes between two hard resist ing substances, the contact of which, without an intermediary, is apt to end in disaster. A good thick mat is a protection to the crockery. Be sides which. mats madc as suggested are as ornamental as they are use ful. If using towveiling which is...

Royal Walking-sticks. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

Royal Walking-sticks. . The recent announcement, that Andrew Jackson's heavy hickory stick has been presented to Presi dent Woodrow Wilson reminds one that King George inherited the 2,000 walking-sticks which bclonged to his father, King Edward. The collecting of walking-sticks was his late Majesty's favourite hobby, his most treasured stick being . one which was regularly carried by Queen Victoria. 'This remarkable stick was fashioned from a branch of the Boscobel- oak wlhich once concealed Charles IT. when escap ing from Cromwell's soldiers. Queen Victoria had it altered somewhat, and a -little idol from Seringapatam was inserted ,as a knob... .-.-- King Edward's collcction of walk. - ing-sticks, of course, included all sorts of designs. It was a fact; however, that he preferred as a rule an ordinary crook shape. In deed, his fondness for this particular design "gave not a little impetus to its popularity.

Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. --------+-- It is calculated that there is one rat to every acre in England and Wales, and each rodent does dam age to the extent of one farthing per day, which represents a total loss of £l15,000,000 to the country. The annual bill for the upkeep of a small army of cats and rat-cait chers at the London DIocks amounts to hundreds of pounds per year, and though a thousand rats are killed there every- week, the ofli cials cannot exterminate the pests. The whole of the civilised world is now engaged in a war of ex termination against the plague carrying, unnecessary, and destruc tive rat. Australia has spent £60, 000 upon a single structure intend ed as a barrier, and Denmark in troduced a successful Anti-]Rat Bill. This Bill provid.d for the payment of a premium of not less than a half-penny and not more than a penny, according to the d.istricts, for each rat captured, the money being supplied by a State grant.

A Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

A Gentleman. TA It is almost a definition of a g'entleman to say he is. one who never inflicts paiu. This descrip tion is both refined and, as far as it goes, accurate. -He is mainly oc cupied in merely removing the ob stacles which hinder the free and unembarrassed action of those about him; and he concurs with their movements rather than takes the ini tiative himself. ' His benefits may be considered as parallel to what are called comforts or conveniences in arrangemejnts of a personal na ture, like an easy chair or a good fire, which do their part in dis pelling cold and fatigue, though na ture pIrovides both means of rest alO animal heat .without them. The true gentleman in like manner caref lly avoids whatever may cause tbose i lthi whom he is cast-all clashing of opinion, or collision of 4eelinpg, all restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment ; his great concern beilg to make everyone at their ease and at home. He has eyes on all his company ; he is tender towards the b...

£40 for a Tattooed Head. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

£40 for a Tattooed Head. At one time tattooed heads fetclh ed as jnucli as t£3c to £10 for gooJ specimens, said Dr. S. H. H-arri son, the curator of the Horniman Museumi at Forrest 11ill, in a lec ture on the paint, powder, and per sonal adornlments of 'savages. lie was describing the ancient IMaori custom of tattooing the head, and said that they always cut ofi the head of anyone slain in war, and it was looked upon afterwards as a sacred object. In process of time collectors began to purchase these heads, and this led to many murders being commrnnitted in order to secure the head and oiler it for sale. It then became a practice to tattoo the heads of slaves, so that they might eventually be killed, and their heads sold ; but this had long since been stopped. The wearing of necklaces andi ear ri:gs went hack many hundreds of years amongst every class of savage and the present use of powder and paint by them was a continuation of the use of pipeclay and red ochre centuries ago.

To Make a Bookcase. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914

To Mlake a Bookcase. A bookcase such as our first dia gramin illustrates when white enanm elled looks renirkaily well-a fit adornment for any drawing-room, though it may be constructed in a short time by the veriest amateur in furniture-making. P'rices of wood differ in different towns, but taking a fair average, the total cost of a bookcase, 3ft. Gin. high and 3ft. long, should not exceed 12s., and this in cludes one shilling for enamel. The ends, shelves and top are cut from wood '~in. thick, while the back boards hale a thickness of {in. The latter should be yellow pine, for the defects of this stuffl will not be noticeanble in the position it oc cupies. The shelves many also be of yellow pine; but it would be better to give one halfpenny a foot more and have themI, as the ends and top, of canary, which is a wood with a particularly nice surface. For the sake of example, w-e have taken it that the bookcase is one haling three shelves, ;ft. 6in. high and 3ft. long; but it is scarc...

THE TOWER OF LONDON. - +----- HOW IT WAS NEGLECTED. The paper which gives its name to "A Tragedy in Stone," the new book of Lord IRedesdalc, published by John Lane, is a fascinating essay on the Tower of London. in 1874 Lord Rcdesdale was appointed Secretary of Ihe Office of Works. I-He fo:und that after the Prince Consort's death, in iS61, decay had Lor thirteen years been holding sway unchecked, and that nimcdiate action was necessary. He-i Ipersuadled the Government to take measures for preserving the fabric not only of the Tower, but also of the little church on the north side o' Tower Green. the Chapel of St. Pe'cter and Yedncula. In the chapel were found the bones of Anne Boleyn. 'The bones were slender and beautifully formed-nar row feet and hands, delicate limba in excellent proportion. the vertebra. very small, the atlas (the joint near est thc skull) tiny (remember her laughing at her ' lyttet neck' on the eve of her execution !)
