In 1909 thousands of tons of % chalk fell from Shakespeare Cliff, and three years previously there was a fall during which the coast-guard's watch-house at the summit was hurled into the wOjVcs.

The east coast suffers most. At Heme l*ay alone from 1872 to 1896 a thousand feet of coast were lost /or ever. v

Our Limited Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
Our Limited Speech. I It is a strange and disquieting fact that the raoro advanced and highly educated people arc, the raoro limited and commonplace is their speech. In the United States, every child is given a good all round education, yet the language of tho slums in New York and Chi cago, if more picturesque, is quite as limited as that of London and Liverpool. When you read Synge*s "Playboy of the Western World:1 for the thir teenth time-which if you care for literature, you will certainly do j'ou will find a company of tramps, cottagers, and tipsy loafers using the most astounding Images and deco rating their phrases with the choi cest flowers of fancy. Mr. Synge's lovers do not exchange physical en dearments, but they talk of future love-making in a way that haunts the imagination. Their phases are as beautiful and alluring as those of the Samoan chiefs who wrote of Robert Louis Stevenson. Their hyperbole docs not ccom far-fetch ed, any more than that of those South Sea Island...
