NURSES MAY NOT DANCE. MR HALDANE'S STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 8 July 1910
NURSES MAY NOT DANCE. MR HALDANE'S STATEMENT. Amid, hearty laughter in Parliament, Mr Haldane confessed that the experi ence o£ the matrons and other ladies had prevailed over- his natural instinct in the matter of the rule that Netley nurses may not attend public or private dances when off duty, except when on furlough. The rule does not apply to the male doc tors in the service. The Nursing: Hoard, he said, "requires for the Army nursing service gentle women who are devoted first and fore most to their work for Us own sake and the sake of tlioir patients, and who will, there fore, desire to live quietly and un ostentatiously without looking for much gaiety. Occasional attendance at operas, theatres, concerts, and other places of amusement is not incompatible with the due performance of their duties, and is allowed at the discretion of the matron. "But the late hours involved by attend ance at balls and dances, in the opinion of the board, incapacitate them from giving proper atten...

The cocoanut, he declares, is the most suitable food for man, and he also insists that it was his original diet.

MODERNISING CHINA. TEA AND EIDK TRADES DECLINE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 8 July 1910
MODERNISING CHINA. TEA AND EIDK TRADES DECLINE. The tea and silk trades of China arc in a very bad way, according to a l-eport of the Foreign Office issued recently. In 1864 tea and silk represented S2 per cent, of, the &lt;■ lpire's exports. Now they account for only 45% per cent. The Commissioner of Customs at Canton adds that h- tea irvdugtry seems to be doomed. The London Customs in 1904 registered 6000 chests of tea adulterated with fil ings and sand. A consignment sent to Australia is described as "dirt." The United Kingdom consumed 16,557,7201b. of China tea in 1904, as against 240,236,9251bs. from India and Ceylon, and in 1905 only 6,650,0001bs. The silk trade is ;atlsfactory, inas much as the egfrs and worms are every where diseased, aid no efforts are being made to improve them. The report states that British commer cial agents are at last moving in Ch^na, which swarms with Japanese age.nts, traders and pedlars. The modernising of China is proceed'ng rapidly. The r...

RUSSIAN DEMAND AMNESTY. POWERFUL SPEECH TO THE DUMA. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 8 July 1910
RUSSIAN DEMAND AMNESTY. POWERFUL SPEECH TO THE , . - DUMA. The St. Petersburg' correspondent oI the "Standard" says the Duma has al ready established its reputation as the most democratic Parliament In the world. The President, who was in even ing dresa on the second day, wore a frock coat to-day, whilst the deputies were in every variety of costume — in cluding blouse of black, blue, or grey checked, and with and without collars. Perhaps the idyllic surroundings contri bute to the mutual tolerance at indi vidual tastes. The windows look on to a beautiful park, adorned with flowers, and a lake almost on the same level as the floor of the chamber. The building is proving -well adapted for the pur poses of a legislative assembly. The debate on the Amnesty question in the Duma is being followed with the most intense interest. Renter's St. Petersburg correspondent aays that among the many remarkable speeches made in the course of that debate special mention, is due to one de livered by ...

A DIVORCE CASE. HUSBAND'S RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 8 July 1910
A DIVORCE CASE. HUSBAND'S RETURN. A dramatic little story was told to the court by counsel in the undefended peti tion of a Yorkshire miner named Wil liam Wilson. The parties were married in 1893, and their happiness was not disturbed even when, the co-respondent, a newsagent named Arthur Pearce, came on the scene. He was introduced by his sweet heart, and lodged in the petitioner's house. In 1903 work became slack in the Castleford district, and Wilson, who had heard a great deal of the gold of Canada, decided to seek his fortune' there. He reached Nova Scotia, and every fortnight sent money to the wife he trusted. One day he received a letter, "Come home at once, as one o£ the chil dren is seriously ill." But the fortune he had gone out to seek was still a miner's dream. He wrote and told her so, and she borrowed L8 (from the co-respondent, it appeared), and the miner sailed for England and his siclt child. When he reached his old homj> he found the house shut up, so he went to...
FRENCH ELECTIONS. GOVERNMENT SECURES GAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 8 July 1910
FRENCH ELECTIONS. GOVERNMENT SECURES GAINS. The "Express" correspondent wrote from Paris on 7th May:— The salient feature of the French.elec-.. tions, the definite results of which ire now practically all known, has been the heavy losses of the Nationalist party. The new Chamber, consisting, as the old one did, of 591 deputies, will contain less than 20 per cent, of Nationalist members, while the increase in the num ber of the Radicals and Socialists—the supporters of the Government—is pro.% portionately large. / The Opposition press is trying to nSake out that the Government is .left j' alto gether dependent on the goodwill' of the Socialist section of their party, . but the coutention is unfounded. Leaving the second ballots out of con sideration, 164 Radicals ar.d 56 Republi cans of the Left havj been returned, against 39 Socialists, 55 Progressists,'.and 110 Nationalists, reactionaries, and cler icals, so that the Government already has a majority of 16 over the Socialists and t...
