QUAINT TENURES. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914

QUAINT TENURES. The kings and princes of England seem to have delighted to amuse them selves by the devising of tenures for fciheir personal profit, pleasure, and, amusement.- Some in their nature (writes Paul Monckton in tJlie "Con temporary Review") are such as to be unprintable in the twentieth century Press; these quiokly came to be com muted to a money payment. Others, again, are positively amazing in' the variety and nature, of the customs by wlhich they were to be held. For instance, the Lordship of Bures. in Essex, was held by. the se^geantry of scalding the King's hogs; Carleton, in Nottingham, by t)he service of one catapult in the year for all services; two farms at Carlcoats, Yorkshire, by the service of finding, one a right hand glove, and the otllier a left hand glove, the whole of the Manor of Caldeoote was held by Humphrey de Bolhm by virtue of being Lord High Constable of England—a post now abolished on ac count of the degree of power and splen dour attaching to til...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Ilusticus.") "This is a great' oountry, but it is not used," said an American th© other day. He said it with an air of un covering a fact, of which Australians I are not aware, and which it would be well _ for tliem to know and to aot 'ac cordingly. There is no gainsaying the accuracy of his observation, and it is probable that there are few Australians who think at all, who do not ack nowledge its.truth. But to aot upon the knowledge is altogether a different matter.. There is some progress to wards exhibiting more fully the im mense resources of the country, but it is a painfully slow process. For the most part, we are not far in advance of the lotos eating natives of the tro pica who are content to take the goods the gods provide in the shape of the fruit, fiish and flesh. Nature, with prodigal bounty furnishes, and let it go at that. True,, we make some effort, but to a very great ex tent, this country of unbounded pos sibility in the way of production is ...
