STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 19 February 1914
STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED^ Perugia's pretence that lie stole, tee "Gioconda" from the Louvre with, a view to restoring some of the master pieces carried away by Napoleon is badly chosen (says the Paris correspon dent of "The Daily Telegraph" of De cember 16). He does not seem to know that-the "Gioconda" happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that were never in the possession of Italy. It was acquired from the artist by Francois I., King of France, for the sum of 4000 gold ecus, and had been at Fontainebieau and "Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre. That Peru gia simply hope to make money out of the theft seems to be proved by the /act that before he carried off the pic ture he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers. Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in his room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December 28, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the the...
NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 19 February 1914
NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE "I have just received a letter from a friend at present travelling in Norway, where she has not been for twelve years," says the editor of "The Vine yard." "It was not written with any idea of publication, but so finely and sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is blessed with one of the noblest peasantries in the world, point the evils which "The "Vineyard" is out to fight, and the good which It exists to defend and encourage, that I venture, in good conscience, to print It without her permission." "It is like a dream to find oneself again in this romantic land, and in one day we have already seen so much that it seems long since we left home! The crossing- was horrid in every way, but we had some quiet hours in smooth water before we arrived in the. early morning, and Stavanger with its clean, many-colored wooden houses rising out of the still fjord, and the encircling mountains stealing out of the morning mist restored one.

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 19 February 1914
THE STREET CLEANER A paper having: said that "To recog nise the supremacy of the street cleaner would be to usher in the reign of chaos," "The Dally Herald" takes it to task and says:—"Now, that Just brings us very closo to the root of the matter. 'Supremacy' Is indeed the wrong: word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual economy he Is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. "We may thus re-state the proposition: 'To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) Is to usher In the reign of sanity and humanity.'"

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 19 February 1914
ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwolil, in "The Dally News.") M. France has been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would he be, any thing' so solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. He may. Indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them, or around them; for he has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or realise anyone or any thing in art—save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITERARY GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, M. France is a pure egotist^ an...
REMARKABLE RECORD [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 19 February 1914
REMARKABLE RECORD The diamond jubilee of the Rev. Samuel Harding', of the Portman street United Free Church Mission Hall, Glas gow, has just been celebrated (says "The Westminster Gazette.") Mr Harding', in acknowledging- the gift of a purse of sovereigns, incidentally re marked that he had never been laid aside for a single day with illness, had never had a doctor attend him, had never partaken of medicine of any kind, and never even had the toothache. It is melancholy to think that this, i which ought to be the normal state of ! things, is now becoming so rare that when it happens to exist, the mere ! casual mention of it is regarded as j worthy of note. So happy a condition ] is certainly enviable. I

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 19 February 1914
REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately refuses to "thrive" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Daily News" of December 9). From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or reasons can be assigned. -i ■ ; Unfortunately the truth more or less generally remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, handicapped by the fact of not thriv ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the child who does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal; natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree—that is, if we give him a chance. But our methods of cloth ing, feeding, and "managing" our off spring detract from the health and joy of life of far too many of them in this generation at least. GOOD AS HIS CHEST A medical inspector of schools told me the othe...
