SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 7 August 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps, consigned to Bombay Town Hall, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt. that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in tact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.

"A MODEL CITIZEN." [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 7 August 1914
"A MODEL CITIZEN." (By J. W. M'CONAUGHY.) beneath the dark, tempestuous wava As blameless as can be, There dwells in peaceful, deep-sea car The sea anemone. 'A perfect model for us all In these our sinful lives; He never touches alcohol, Or flirts with neighbours' wives. He never robs the shellfish Of a single shiny pearl; He's never harsh or selfish, He never kissed a girl. Hlie does not stay out late at night, He'd not desert his wife; He's never in an ale-house fight, He shrinks from sin and strife. That he may feast not even worms Or little fish must die; He fills his tummy full of germs And animalculae. He does not sorrow for his kind, He knows not sacrifice; To grief and suff'ring he is blind, To ignorance and vice. Then let us give him due respect With 'our most honoured," when hiate's made the sea anemone _ ·A model citi?ae.L"
PARIS SHOP-SIGNS STILL SWING. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 7 August 1914
PARIS SHOP-SIGNS STILL SWING. Parisian ideas of mercan'i!e ad:cr tising go back to the Middle Ages when there were no show windo ., and no reading public, and the h:iht of progressiveness was expressed in a golden symbol of the tradesman hun:g outside the house wherein he lie( and traded. In the old streets you can find many of the ancient signs yet, and so:ne modern examples besides. The reall3 old signs are few and far between. but walks in the historic quarters bring you to them and warm youe heart with their sight. These are survivals from a time long forgotten, but modern Paris has delightful parallels. Nor are they en tirely devoid of historic interest o their own, for the cafe on the Place de la Bastille known as "The Can non of the Bastille " has histori, associations surely. Even the greal tin cannon which surmounts its glass covered red terrace is the replica o one used by the populace in storm ing the Bastille, and the waiter wil assure you the original stood or this very...
