RACE FEELING [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
RACE FEELING "A feature that strikes the returning traveller after a few years' absence in Asia or South America is the submerg ing of English race feeling under a sea of cosmopolitanism," says the "Re feree." "Among Englishmen born and bred there seems to be a consensus of Impotent dismay at the destruction of English race feeling." A young man, while holidaying on the east-coast of Scotland, entered a small shop to get some refreshments. The place was empty: no one seemed to be about. So, going over to what he took to be a bell-rope. hang ing from the ceiling, he tugged it violently. Just to show that he was being neglected. The next moment the owner of the shop, an old lady, came screaming down from upstairs in a towering rage. "What doe ye mean, ye daft, idiot!" she cried. "Dae ye no ken that rope's tied to the cradle, and ye've thrown the bairn oot?" Readers of our paper will do well, nlow that cutting and stripping is com pleted, to write to Messrs.

BLACK PRINCE AS MINER SON OF LOBENGULA. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
BLACK PRINCE AS MINER SON OF LOBENGULA. Loben Lobengula, son of the Mata bele warrior-king, died on Monday in his humble dwelling at Pendleton, near Manchester, in circumstances of dire poverty (says "Lloyd's Weekly" of No vember 30). When a report appeared some weeks ago that "Prince Loben Lobengula" was lying ill and destitute in lodgings at Salford, the British South Africa Company published a statement that they had no evidence to corroborate the man's story that he was the late Mata bele chieftain's son, and that inquiries as to his antecedents were being made in Rhodesia. It is, however, asserted by the Rev. W. D. Rees, vicar of the parish in which the exile has died, that he has no reason to doubt the latter's claim, and that the doubts publicly cast upon it had been a severe shock to the sick man, hastening his end. "The Prince's" story was that he fought under his father against the Bri tish troops in Matabeleland, and that he refused to accept the terms of peace which were...

SENTIMENTAL CHARITY DEAN'S CRITICISM [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
kYSENTIMENTAL CHARITY -DEAN'S .C]rITICISM _ :.:.The problem of pain and suffering, considered in connection with Chris tifan' charity, was the subject of an ad dlress by the Dean of St. Paul's (Rev. Dr. Inge) at the annual meeting of the St Saviour's, Southwark, Commit tee of the Charity Organisation So ciety, held yesterday under the presi dency of Sir William Chance (reports the "Daily Telegraph" of December 11). One of the most prominent fa tures in our present-day life, he said, was the revolt against pain. But pain was-part of God's ordering of the world, meant to show us our faults and blunders, and as a punishment for our .ignorance of His laws so far as they concerned us. . There was no lesson which we in England needed more to learn than that evil was wrought by want of head as well as want of heart-that pre vention, which called for a cool head, was better than cure, which appealed to the warm heart. It would be much more difficult for a vicar to collect money from his con...

HOW TREES AFFECT HEALTH [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
HOW TREES AFFEICT HEALTH Speaking at a meeting of the East bourne Town Council (Eng.), Alder man Keay gave an emphatic contra diction to the suggestion that the health of the town had been affected adversely by trees.

CRICKET. Swan Hill Defeated by Bairanald [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
CRICKET. -0"-- BwaniHill Defeated by Balranald BY THIRDMAN. The second season's contests for the Dowling cup are at. an end by reason of the Balranald club's secur ing another victory over the two Swan Hill clubs. The victory was well deserved, for' the New South Welshmen made a really honest and sportsmanlike fight for supremacy, and succeeded by the very narr'ow margin of three runs to secure to their town the possession of the trophy for twelve months. The Swan Hill players, accompanied by tie local minstrel troupe, left for Bal ranald on Sunday, and many were thoe "muddy" arguments with nmag neto, skidding wheels and water bottles, the latter being mostly utilised to replenish the awful thirt of the radiators. In consequence of The prolonged journey the listlerrie. en routo were made to resound with the sweet strains of melody, and so the anxious hours of suspense, as to what the "morn" would bring forth from above, were sonmewhat less trying.

Third Girl: The man who interests me is the man with a present; and the more expensive the present is the more interest I ake in it.

"THE GRAVE OF THE SOUL" [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
." THE GRAVE OF THIE SOUL" Accordirig to the Cairo correspondent of the 'Manchester Guardian," Cairo seems to be in a bad way: Burglaries, robberies with violence, and thefts are the order of the day. Side by side with the military regime there is a laxity of -morals which is allowed to go on quite unchecked. The number of cafes in SCairo is remarkable, 'and fresh ones are being constantly opened: In some streets leading off the principal street there are nothing but cafes. At some of the music-halls and theatres pieces of the grossest immorality are given. "Cairo is the grave of the soul," said Bishop Blyth, and the opinion of the correspondent is that he was not far wrong.

"THE WITCH" SOUTH RUSSIAN EPISODE [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
".THE WITCH" SOUTH RUSSIAN EPISODEi By Denis Garstin, in the "Westminster Gazette." "I do not think," said Tropheme, "that she is altogether a witch, but she Is very awful. She is a hundred and fifty years old, and she has sixty cats. Once she quarrelled with her brother -long ago-and he killed her pet cat, and she did something very ter rible to him; I forget what she did, I think she killed him. He died." Tropheme is a thoroughly untrust worthy in his narratives, but then no body, except himself, believes them. Whenever I had been to the village Tropheme would hover round my room in the hope of my having brought back some chocolate. The children often used to leave bogus packets about the gardens, and take delight in watching the big-bearded Russian workmen snatch up the empty temptations. The simple crea tures never learnt wisdom or caution against the fraud, until at last even the children took pity on them, and their great faith was rewarded by oc casional sweets. But in partic...
DUEL BY PROXY "PIERRE LOTI" CHALLENGED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 29 January 1914
DUEIL BY PROXY "PIERRE LOTI" CHALLENGED. Some weeks ago Lieutenant Turcom. of the Bulgarian Army. sent a chal lenge to Captain Julien Viaud. of the French Navy, better known by his lite rary rseudonym of "Pferre Loti," says the Par., correspondent of the " reorr ing Post" -.on November 10. Pierra Lott as champion of the Turkish cause, has, in a number of published articles and pamphlets, spoken in very strong terms of the atrocities alleged to have been committed by the Bulgarians in the war. As M. Lotl decided to ignore this challenge, it was taken up by an officer of the Turkish army and several French journalists. After the various complications which so often arise in an affair of honor it was decided that a duel should take place between the well-known swordsman M. Breittmayer and Lieutenant Turcom. The weapons chosen were swords. The duel took place this morning, and the two adversaries fought so courageously that the specattars feared on several occasions that it might have a...
