THE BLACK KNIGHT CLEANING NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 February 1914

THE BUCK KNIGHT CLEANING NEEDED. It must be rather trying to ue u. statue. People can stand and stare at you ,and even comment upon your personal appearance, without expos ing themselves to any charge of rude ness. -s» No sense of delicacy restrains them from suggesting, If the idea strikes them, that you are dirty and uncared for. That is what is troubling Sir Henry Irving just now (says the "Westminster Gazette.") Sir Henry's situation is one that befits him thoroughly. As an artist ho has no compunction in turning his back on the National Portrait Gallery. As a shrewd, sensible man, essentially modern, he fixes a rather anxious gaze upon the motor 'buses as they dash towards him down Charing Cross road, wondering, no doubt, when one ol them will fail to answer its helm and dash itself against his pedestal. Like every other actor-manage?, he has cast aside the trammels of the theatre, and wears the frock coat that, a few years ago, stood for eminent respectability, with the doctor...

MODERN WITCHCRAFT BLACK ARTS AND CHARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 February 1914

MODERN WITCHCRAFT BLACK AUTS AND CHARMS. Bent on a quest for further evidence of the survival of witches anil witch craft (supplementing: the interesting information published in these columns on the authority of the editor of "Folk Lore"), says the "Dally News" re presentative of November 17, had the fortune to find his way into a veritable museum of magic. In a ground-floor study in a Croydon villa, Mr Edward 'Lovett, a well-known member of the Folk Lore Society, has set out, so far as room permits, some of the fruits of thirty years' investi gation into the popular beliefs and su perstitions of many lands. Mascots and amulets in a hundred different woods and metals crowd the walls; cabinets are packed with speci mens collected from every country in Europe; shelves strain with volumes on folk-lore and anthropology; and rows of manuscript book's record the result of their owner's researches. Among them all Mr Lovett moves quickly to and fro, laying now on this treasure, npw on that...

Quips and Quiddites of the Man in the Street. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 February 1914

Quips and Quiddites of the Man in the Street. (By Podargus.) The Railway Commissioners appear to be under the impression that the Victorian Railways are the best managed in the world— because they manage them. It costs too much for the education for the tall poppies of the public service when such "education" calls for trips to Europe and America extending over some months at first-class fare in' travelling andedibles. The worstof these experiments in " education" is that the pupils return "no wiser than before." Even poll-' ticians, such as Messrs Fisher: and Watt, come back unen-' lightened, for the simple reason ! that it is given to but few men to ■ have a properly developed bumpi of observaton, and beyond a series of banquets, followed by frothy speeches as the result, thereof, the money expended on political trips might be put to much better uses, even if spent on cleaning the railway carriages on the South Gippsland line. If "Charity begins at home" Cleanliness ought to begin...

MARKETS. WOOL. Messrs Goldsbrough, Morfc & Co.'s second sale of the year in cluded another good showing of wools from the south-east of South Australia. As compared with our last sale good stylish merinoes were greatly sought after, selling at prices which showed a slight improvement on those then ruling, but, on the other hand, crossbreds of all de scriptions, more particularly when at all irregular, were distinctly easier and in buyers' favor. Scoureds, of which the catalogue contained some 1100 bales, at tracted good attention, and made very full rates. Our sale this week (February 4th) will prac tically close the season in this centre.

POSTAGE STAMPS DUTCH CENTENARY (By Fred J. Melville, In the "Daily Telegraph.") In the early part of this year there was added to our alb.ims one o£ tlie finest series of stamps of historical as sociations ever issued, in the Russian set commemorative of trie Tercentenary of the Romanof <3yna; ty. Now, towards the close of the year, Holland has emulated the example of Russia, and has issued a set of stamps to mark the centenary of the accession of William X. to the throne of the Netherlands. The Dutch series does not present the variety of portraiture, nor the same attractiveness of design and color, found in the Ru.sian series, hut the stamps are well engraved and printed by the historic firm of Enscliede and Sons, of Haarlem. They are of large, upright, oblong shape, and depict portraits of William I. and his successors of the same name down to the present occupant,of the throne, Queen Wilhelmina. The values, with their respective portraits and colors, are 2M: cents., d...
