PAVEMENT ARTIST [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 29 January 1914
PAVEMENT ARTIST The influence of M. Leon Bakst, who i designed the costumes and scenery for I the Russian bullet and has devised the costumes and color schemes for the I new revue at the London Hippodrome, has made itself felt in the case of at least one London pavement artist (says the "Daily Mail."). He exhibits in a . by-street off Belgravla, and up to the present has always worked in black | and write, with an occasional touch i of grey for backgrounds. His most 1 personal work. "Fish on a Plate," has . been attained through the medium of a bleak white and a carbon black. I3ur. recently regular passers-by have not I iced with surprise vivid splashes .of , color in the centre of his gallery, 1 in his diploma flags. , "Yus," he explained to an inquirer; "yus, it 'ad to be.

MAKING SOLDIERS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 29 January 1914
MAKING SOLDIERS Speaking at a dinner given in his honor by the Society of Authors in Lojidon on November 27, Field-Mar shal Lord Roberts touched upon the necessity for having men trained for tho field. j They could not be trusted, he said, I no- matter what their courage might be, to fight an enemy unless they were trained. Ho could give them many instances of what could bo done by a very few trained soldiers, men who believed in their own skill with their j arms and. who trusted their comrades I alongside them or even at great dis- i I tances apart. | | Fighting nowadays was a different thing from what it was even in the days of the Crimean War, the Indian i Mutiny, or the Peninsular War. The I first battle he was at was at Delhi. , At'that time they were in close order, | touching each other in fact. The non commissioned officers and men were I shpulder to shoulder, and the firing 1 commenced, as at Waterloo, at 40 or 56 yards distance. I On the Heights of Abraham, Wolfe ' did not...
CURE FOR OBESITY ADVICE BY COUNTESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 29 January 1914
CUltE FOR OBESITY ADVICE BY COUNTESS. The Countess of Warwick describes in "Harper's Bazaar" a simple diet plan for women who wish to reduce their weight. She writes: After having tried every method it is my opinion that the reducing pro cess can just as well be carried out at home, under the normal conditions of everyday life. , . All physicians agree in the advice, "Cut out starch, sugar, and, in a less degree, fats." The necessary amount of sleep is permitted, but the earliest hours of rising are greatly to the good, and all forms of exercise in the ordinary way, such as walking, riding, swimming, tennis, and golf, together with sea bathing are encouraged. These help to cure so long as they are not overdone. The elimination of starch-some GO per cent, of our food value-is inclined to debilitate, and one must be cautious or a worn, scraggy appearance:-most unbecom ing--will ensue, as so often happens to women undergoing a "cure." I will introduce the personal note in giving my adv...

PREVENTIVE DETENTION TIME TO CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 29 January 1914
PBEVENTIVE DETENTION TIME TO CHANGE. The Court of Criminal Appeal- (The Lord Chief Justice and Justices Darl ing, Bray, Lush and Atkln)-was re asked (reports the "Daily Mail" of No vember IS) on behalf of the Crown, to make pronouncement for the guidance of all lesser tribunals as to the meaning of "preventive detention" of criminals, which is prescribed in a recent Aet of Parliament, and to iay down specific ally that there is no rule limiting this preventivo detention to only five years as the accompaniment of a sentence on the criminal of three years' penal servi tude. The court has recently been quashing orders for preventive detention on the ground that the subjects had not been proved habitual criminals. One more of these appeals came up yesterday. John Crowley, ordered at Somerset Quarter Sessions three years' penal servitude for burglary and ten years' preventive detention afterwards, appealed from that part of his conviction which de clared him an habitual criminal.

The leading officials sLato that no invitation wa3 is=ued to the depart tn nt. that ita representative should attend, and express themselves as at a loss to understand why. List year one of their oiliciala was present on the occasion of the Striking of tlie standard. The department recalls tho circum stances of the previous season, in which it remarks tho sample forwarded to London became woevily, and a freBh standard was struck.

WOMEN'S PART PLAY THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 29 January 1914
WOMEN'S PART PLAY THE GAME. I Dr Mary Schaiiieb, tho Harley street specialist in women's diseases and con- 1 suiting gynecologist to the Royal Free ( Hospital, discusses in the "Daily Mail" tho paper read by Dr Claye Shaw on ."The Nervous Factor in "Woman's Health" at the Institute of Hygiene. I quite agree with Dr Shaw, Mrs Scharlieb said, that it is a great mis take for a woman to be so devoted to sports and outside interests that she becomes mannish, but I think he will find very few married women who neglect their homes for this reason or who keep up their athletics after mar riage. It is generally the young un married woman who is soeking new ! outlets for her energy. Dr Shaw says sport is a bad mar- 1 riage market, and that the sporting girl exposes her character, _too much to . the man. I contend that the man should | know the girl's character as thorougn ly as he can before marriage. If sports expose bad qualities, then let them be cured. I There is a good deal of good in a ...
