LITERATUM THEODORE ROOSEVELT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
mr?. : THEODORE ROOSEVELT. .No one can read Mr. Theodore Roose lt's published autobiography (Macmillan) :without being iimpressed'-by the amazing. vitality of the man. It reveals itself on every page. 'A fluent writer, of him' it may truly be said that the style is the man, for he rushes 'the' reader on through some 600 pages, with the same breathless . intensity with :'hich he used to drag his. friends of the "Tennis Cabinet" over moun tains and .precipices and through, rivers * when he took. Them for 'an afternoon walk.. 'That the child, is' 'not always father, of the: man is apparent from Mr. Roosevelt's con i:.fession that he was a sickly, delicate boy, b:'who suffered much from asthma,. and had to be 'taken away on trips to' find a place where he could breathe. Without exactly saying' so, Mr. Roose ,vIt seems to suggest that, his 'triumph q r youthful weakness was 'due, like :: triumphs in later life, to strength w: ill and to indomitable purpose. IHe early learnt to despise we...
LORD HUGH CECIL. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
LORD HUGH CECIL. he member for Oxford Univers:ty is the personality who forms the subject of Mr. T. P. O'Connor's article in the January issue of the "Pall Mall Magazine." The writer shows how the rising statesman with influence and tradition behind him became the spokesman of that portion of the Conservative party which adhered to the principles of free-trade, 'and declined to follow Mr. Chamberlain. He was then boycotted by the ardent tariff reformers of his party, but found a safe seat at Ox ford, where even tie sharp blade of the confederates could not intervene. "Lord Hugh Cecil," we are told, "is still a man in a position of isolation and of an un certain future. His genius, his industry, his determination to assert himself, his long lineage and his fanatical convictions ought to have made his path easy in nor mal conditions, but existing , conditions. ake it difficult, if ndt impossible.

LITERARY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
LITERARY GOSSIP. "Great is Discipline," by O. C. Ironside, is confessedly a story written with a de finite purpose. Its object is not so much to arouse interest in a romance as, to set forth certain opinions in a clear andiattrac tive manner. The wrongs and woes of op pressed labor have .often been. made the VICTORIAN FOX AND IRISH TERRIER CLUB'S PARADE, ALEXANDRA AVENUE. -(J. C. Bartlett, jun., photo.). theme of aspiring novelists, but in this in stance the side of the employer is given, and there is presented a spirited, though one-sided, indictment of the spirit and me thods of the labor unions and the Socialist party. They are accused of elevating hat red into a principle, of terrorising individ uals, of abandoning the restricton of hon orable dealing, and of treating agreements merely as a matter of convenience. In view of recent incidents, it cannot be said that these assertions are 'altogether with out foundation. Unionism, established as a, protest against tyraniy, has now b...

AROUND THORPDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914
AROUND THORPALE. The spread of cultivation in the Thop dale district discloses the undeniable fact that the land can be made-to produce a great variety of useful crops. This year there are about 1000 acres in the neigh borhood of Thorpdale under potatoes, many of the crops looking exceedingly well. Some years' experience in the growing of pota toes teaches that the tuber produced in this district is shapely, solid and of special value for table purposes. On this account it always sells readily. The first illustration depicts the change wrought by cultivation. In the back ground is a hopeless-looking mass of dead timber, and huge logs with bracken fern and scrub, to make matters worse. Suc land is entirely unproductive. Even the original grasses sown years ago, after the first burn, have died out. In the fore ground is shown the character of the same class of country after it has been thoroughlly cleared and cultivated. The pictue was taken on a farm belonging to Mr. Edward Ford, for...

-THE STOCK _EXCHANCE. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. BY BROKER. Investmennt stock has firmed all along tlie line in sympathy. with the improvcd conditions ruling in the. money market, and it is a reasonable deduction that if more scrip were available at round about the rates of recent sales- the business in this division would reach substantially larger proportions.

As I write, how ever, the market has the appearance of having "topped," for the time 'being at all events.
