INDIAN REFORMERS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 February 1914
INDIAN REFORMERS A correspondent especially well in formed on the subject writes to the "Westminster Gazette" on November 31:— Gopnl Krishna- Gokhaio was born in Kolapur, Poona. He is a Brahmin, and politics have ever been a passion with tilts Maharashtra r-rahmin. As a stu dent lie was known for his great abi lity, retentive memory, and steady ap plication. In 1SS4 ho beenme a member of the Dcccan liciucatuin Society. For about twenty years Mr Gokhale filled tho Chair cf History and Political Eco nomy in the Fergusson College. I'oon i, one of the best colleges in the whole of India. As a lecturer Mr Gopal Krishna Gok hale spent almost all his time and en ergy for the twenty years of his youth. It was the late Justice Ranade who chose Gokhale as one of his elect, and initiated him into the mysteries of politics.

CONVICT SNOBS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 February 1914
CONVICT SNOBS There 1ms been a movement for separate tables at meals among the convicts at the prison "hotel" at Camp Hill, Isle of Wight, where an attempt Is made to reform convicts by special privileges (says the "Daily Mail"). Meal times at Camp Hill are social functions which the warders are not pormitted to disturb. These old, habitual criminals, who have been granted many comforts by the autho rities, have after-dinner chats which are often of a strictly confidential nature. Lately a distinct "caste" feeling has sprung up. The more notorious men have formed a clique. They decline to discuss subjects with men of less repute. Apart from this purely pro fessional jealousy, there are sharp cleavages of opinion, religious, moral, and political, which have been so marked that further controversy on gentlemanly lines is out of the ques tion. The result is that things have not been so happy as formerly at the long tables in- the diningroom. Several men have the habit of leaning across...
GIRL DRUGGED [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 February 1914
GIRL DRUGGED A new method practised by white slavers to secure victims is believed to have been discovered by the police of Newark, New Jersey (says the Now York correspondent, of "The Daily Ex press" of December G). It is alleged that they inject opiates into attractive girls during the darkness in moving picture theatres, and then pose as rela tives and carry them off. Xhis system has been brought to light by the arrest last night, at a cinema palace at Newark of Armand Megaro, a South American employed as a chemist's assistant. Megaro was committed for trial to-day, £4000 bail being required, after Mrs. Marjorie Graff, the bride of two weeks of a Newark civil engineer, had told her story in court. Mrs. Graff said that she occupied a seat In a box, and that Megaro entered her box from another, and took a seat beside her. Suddenly she expori'«w enced a pricking sensation in her wrist, and in a few moments she felt ill and faint, and went to the ladies' parlor, where an attendant re...
CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 February 1914
CHAPTER IV. Ho leant back and gazed at Jier wonderingly. He liad not been able to understand Gwendolen's virulent oppo sition from the first to the claimant from the Antipodes. Ho could not un derstand it now. But then Gwendolen had never been understood by anyone. Her sphinx-like personality had subju gated him, as well as her beauty and charm of mind and body. You must see him, dearest, before you make up your mind—you will re cognise hun—r assure you you will. And that will set everything right. Ho remembers you. It was just by his de tails connected with you that I felt ho was Robert; he could not bo any one elso. What is the matter? My love, what is it?" ho suddenly cried, for Gwendolen seemed to whiten and stiffen, clasping the carved arms of the old elbow chair—a look as of one ly ing, blanched and contracted her fea tures. "Ho dared—romance about me?" she hoarsely asked. ".My dearest, it is just that—he was not romancing, ho remembered all the circumstances of our last meeti...

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoro68 of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER III. England—in all the glorious greenery of a sunny May. The Grange, as tho late General Iialldaro'B old-fashioned C°nn*ir^ h°uso >n a homo county was called, was ablaze with early roses, which climbed over the wide lattices of too lower storey of tho Bouth frontago, to festoon themselves about tho white curtained dormer windows of tho low ceiled bed-chambers. An atmosphere of peace lingered about the square lawns and straight, gravelled walks with their pergolas of thick-fohaced creepers, beyond -which was an old, low wall, where a peacock peiched and spread his tail in the sun shine, a peahen meekly ambling on the grass at Ins feet.

Some weeks ago Lieutenant Turcom, | of tho Bulgarian Army, sent a dial- I lenge to Captain Jullen Vlaud, of the French Navy, better known by his lite rary jseudonym of "Pierre Lot!," says the Pari;. correspondent of the "Morn ing Post" on November 10. l'lerro LotI 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.

THE BLACK KNIGHT CLEANING NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 February 1914
i THE BLACK KNIGHT CLEANING NEEDED. It must be rather trying to be a statue. People can stand and stare it you .and even comment upon your personal appearance, without expos ing themselves to any charge of rude ness. No sense of delicacy restrains them from suggesting, if the idea strikes them, that you are dirty and uncaretl 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 tho motor 'buses as they dash towards him down Charing Cross road, wondering, no doubt, when one of them will fall to answer Its helm and dash Itself against his pedestal. Liko every other actor-manager, he lias cast aside tho trammels of the theatre, and wears the frock coat that, a few years ago, stood for eminent respectability, with tho doctor...

AIRCRAFT GUN IN ACTION Further trials with the aircraft des ; troying gun at the Needles Battery, Isle of Wight, took place yesterday (says "The Dally News" November 29). Bursting shells or shrapnell were Ilred. The targets, three box kites," were towed down the Channel against the wind by tiie destroyer Nubian, and when at a height of over two thousand feet and about a mile out to sea llring commenced. The projectiles were spec ially constructed to give off a trail of smoke to show their course in the air, and this device worked., splendidly, j Two or three at flrst were a little I short, but then the gunner found the I range, and shell after shell exploded close to the target, two of the kites being smashed.

Captain Perslus lias lately been Identified with the "Freistnn," quosl Paclfist Press; and his views are cer tainly not tho" views held In authorl tatlvo circles; but as ho criticised soverely the details of Mr Churchill's Guildhall speech, his approval o£ the principle of the British Initiative has some weight.
