Inflexible Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

Inflexible Opinions. j They tell you a,story at a York* shire village near Bradford tvhich never fails to' make the audience laugh immoderately, for few coun ties enjoy the jokes about coro ners' juries more than d* Lanca* j shire nnd Yorkshire. The jurymen . had just returned their verdict that the dead body be | fore them was that of, say, Wil | Hani Nobbs, and that he had died from starvation and exposure, when n poor fellow rose in the Court and asked that he might be allow ed to say a word. With difficulty the coroner was got to consent, for he wanted to get away as soon as possible, in view of a game at golf he was due to play after tea. "Excuse me interrupting, sir, and gentlemon," meekly said the work ingman, "but your verdict is wrong. The dead body cannot be that of William Nobbs, for I'm William Nobbs, of the village in question, and the only William Nobbs there." This would have been a "settler" for most coroners, and for even most pig-headed coroners* juries. But it wai...

CAPTAIN BAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

CAPTAIN BAKER. Sir Samuel White Baker, the dis tinguished t African .traveller, who died ; in 1893, had a noteworthy anccs- I tor in his grandfather, Valentine Raker, a citizen of credit and re nown in Bristol. I Valentine Baker entered the Royal Navy *in his youth, but quitted the .service to take independent command of a privateer, an eigliteen*gun sloop named the Caesar, fitted out at the expense of . himself and some friends. ? 4| On June 27, 1782, when England was at war with Franco, Spain, and Holland, Captain Baker fell in with a French frigate carrying thirty two guns. Despite his groat in feriority in armament and men, he gavo battle, and so splendidly did he fight his ship that tho French frigate struck her flag. The Caesar, however, with nil her boats smashed, crippled in her rig ging, and leaking like a sieve, w'os unable to board her prize, and the Frenchman, perceiving the plight of his conqueror, rehoisted his flag and sniled away, only the next day to be captured by ...

Strange Mistakes in Egyptian Art. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

Strange Mistakes in Egyptian Art. 1 1 During a journey up the Nile in 1908 I noticed (says a correspon dent to the "Scientific American") for the first time, a strange mixing of right and left hands in ancient Egyptian art, although I had been in Egypt before. So /marked is this error that, I think, a count would show hands properly placed to be in tho minority. , We have ttameses I. making an offering to tho god Osiris, with two right hands, while the god's hands are correct, the "Key of life" in his .light. .Seti I. is shown holding up his elaborate offering to the god dess Ifiis, with two left hands. The hands of the goddess are reversed. She Holds the "Key of life'* in the right hand at her left side ! Tn these four we have all possiblo combinations : two rights, two lefts, right and left reversed, and right .and left correct. When we consider that this went on for thousands of years it looks amazing. Surely tho artists knew what they were do ing ? Then how* about the public ? I...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE MAN WHO MADE MODERN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

/ , \PEN PICTURES OF THE V'./. . fflST. . THE MAN WHO MADE MODERN PARIS. The selection of Baron Hauss tnann as Prefect of the Seine (a post analogous to that of the chair man of the London County Coun cil) 'on June 23, 1553, was appa rently just a local 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 ninoteenth-century movement in favour of "street improvements," was first carried thoroughly into practice, K not actually originated, by the man who transformed Paris from a Mediueval 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 wero noblo streets, in those duys-and with the. necessity of driving wide avenues up to the -railway termini, which are the "city.gates" of a modem capital. Ha...

SMOKING FORTY MILES OF CIGARS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

SMOKING FORTY MIUIS CIGARS. If "there's peace in a clear Ha vana," Hcrr Stark, a noted German smoker who died recently, had his share of peace in this world, for dur ing sixty years of his life he con sumed more than half a million ci gars. Shortly before be smoked his last Havana he wrote : "During ray long lifeMme I esti mate that I have smo'ced more than 500,000 cigars, an average of more than twentj-two daily for sixty years. I have thus enjoyed 10,020 hours of such hrpriness as no w > man could have given me, and which was well worth the £6,000 that pur chased it." My cigars have bc^-n the one solace and sweetener of my lifa, and my only regret in leaving it is that I cannot bring my record up to a million." Herr Nanas, an Austrian, was evon more devoted to "My Lad7 Nico tine." From the time he was 27 years old Hcrr Nanas kept an exact account of all he purchsssd and what he paid for it.

A MUSICAL FOUNDLING. Tho-man to whom Great Britain is said to owe her National An them was a foundling. Thero is a btory which says ho was tho son of tho Marquis of Halifax, but this is not likely . to bo true, otherwise, he would scarcely have known 'the extreme depths oJ* poverty which .at time ' were his lot. * Henry Carey-that was his name was a great satirist and a born musician. His was a most amaz ing personality, all contradictions, and although ho 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. iThree famous musicians of the day twore. his teachers, and they succeed* »>Medv in teaching him to be a failure; :nt earning his own living.

THE "FIKST GENTLEMAN'S" LAST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

THE "FIKST 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 hiin from exercising any real weight in State afiairs, 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 city cxcitcd the; contempt of those in contact with him. His last illness was painful and ^lingering, dating from early in the year, although for long secrecy .was maintained thereon by those about him. I-Iis disease, however, steadily increased until reticence ccased to bo politic, or, indeed, pos sible, when late in March, ho be came unable to take his customary exercise in the Park. From time to time indeed, the Court organs, with n determined bu...

CHAPTER VIII. A WARD OF THE CZAR. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

CHAPTER VIII. A WARD OF THE CZAR. Dug-dale spoke lightly, as though it were the merest bagatelle he referred to, and he desired to make as little boasting of it as possible. His companion appeared greatly agitated. She stood back and looked at him in a manner he could not whollj understand. Why, what did it amount to ? In three days they'd be over the border. What cared he if his sentence of exile prevented him from ever entering Russia again, save at his peril ? She would be in the same boat, and yet Russia was her native country. "Sir, what possessed you to do such a bold thing ? How dared you, unasked, propose to cast your for tunes with mine?" she asked, slow ly, with something like a shock of anger in her voice. "I can hardly say. First of all, he aroused my . animosity, by his over bearing ways. It was as much as ' a dare. Then I did not see why I should be denied the privilege of speaking to a pretty woman, provi ded she did not object. Last of all, it riled me to think of th...

CHAPTER VII. A PRETTY FATHER CONFESSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

CHAPTER VII. A PRETTY FATHER CONFESSOR. As Dugdale and his companion pas I sed outside they perceived that tin? . humour of the night had taion a ' turn, for it was no longer dark and I shadowy. Over the rugged hills had j climbed a moon that shone blood | red through the vapour, and -colour . ed all things with a mellow flood of light. To one who loved Nature the scene was particularly beautiful, but for I once in his life Dugdale paid very, little attention to the picture. He had other and more weighty things on his mind. Those in the tap room dared not follow now, no matter how strenu ous their curiosity might be. The ru mour had gone forth, borne by many a wagging tongue, that this heintf of transcendental loveliness was un der the particular charge of the autocrat who ruled the southern camps, and whose frown was fenre! by man, woman, and child w^n more than the dovil, for one could be visibly experienced, while t&e other was but a possibility after de mise. Still, Dugd...

Criminals' Secret Slang. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

Criminals' Secret Slang; That the modern "crook" is a past m&stor in the Art of slang, and can curry on a conversation with' his confederates which would puzzle Scot land Yard's cleverest linguist, is evident from the following account of an incident which was related to the waiter. I quote the words exactly as I ht>ard them : "We saw a publican who wc knew and whoso ' lot' wo admired. VVo ' tailed' him round till he got in a ' scuff' at a stall. Wc then started performing and liTted his . kottle/ He had a ' daco ' round while wc were on the job, but we lifted the ' tackle.' i)ut it turned out to bo ' Duffman Dick,' and, of course, it was a 'wash out.' But wo drew a bit, and had the satisfaction of 'blowing' a ' dead can* who, according to his own idea was very smart," Puzzling though the terms quoted may seem, they aro quite easily un derstood by tho criminal fraternity. '.Lot" means watch and chain, and any other jewellery which may bo displayed by the victim, and "tail...

CHAPTER IX. I DUGDALE MAKES PROGRESS. I They, continued to walk up and down. The bright moonlight, with the gurgling stream and the cool air of the night made it very attractive. Besides, the tavern, with its noise and musty air, did not offer very great inducements to retire. Dugdale was quite content. He could have remained in the pre sence of this charming young woman for hours with tho utmost equani mity. "Monsieur, I thank you for the in terest j ou have taken in my unfor tunate condition ; but it would be unfair of me to allow you to under take this mad endeavoor. You do not know what dangers you face. I cannot permit the sacrifice," she said, after a period of thoughtful silence. "How will you prevent it ?" he asked, triumphantly. "By refusing to give my consent, monsieur." "What if I go on without that, oven at the risk of offending you?" She hardly knew how to reply, for he seemed to taVie away her only weapon. > Finally. she laughed, he thought in a forced way, for ther...

Thene pictures wore painted literally *t 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 ljocomo an ar tist, spent a number of years on the north-east const of Scotland, whore he learnt the delights of deep-sea bathing and diving. And it was the wonderful tones in blue and green, and tho beauties of sea-life' and vogotation which ho noticed while remaining for a few seconds under water while diving which led him, when ho ultimately decidod to devote himsolf to art, to ondoa vour to pnint some of tho true wonders of the sea. < ' With this objcct in. viow he devised an extraordinary sot of apparatus in order ' to paint pictures of tho ocean's bed and tho creatures whtcli inhabit tho w...

Hand-washing Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914

Hand-washing Extra ordinary. Most people attribute tho immen sely decreased rate of mortality in. cases of severe surgical operations to tho 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 almost all a mattor of absolute cleanli ness, tho 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 aro 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 ol washing his hands. For five minutes the surgeon washes his hands with soap and water, and then cleans his finger nails. When he has dono this ho sponds another five minutes doiug it all over again. But this is but a preparation for a third and far moro drastic ablution...
