ENGAGING A HOUSEMAID POET'S CHOICE [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 February 1914

! . — | ENGAGING A HOUSEMAID POET'S CHOICE (By P. II., in tho "Westminster Gazette.") , Charles is a poet. Ho isn't, at all the kind of person I who has long greasy hair, an absent air, anil very bad manners. No, I am glad to say that from the outside no i one could possible guess his poetical tendencies. Ho also never does eccentric things, such as talking aloud to himself in the streets, or walking down Bond-street with a tame ilamingo on a piece of ribbon. flic only occasion on which liis be havior was not absolutely normal was when he engaged a housemaid. • This doesn't sound at all poetical, but really It was most romantic. Of course he wasn't thinking of en gaging anyone at the moment, lie had a perfectly good housemaid. It was only afterwards that the other one came. i But this is getting so involved that i I shall begin at the beginning, and explain what really happened. Charles is accustomed to have an early breakfast in his study, which looks out across the street on to a ...

CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 February 1914

CLARBIGiYT BROTHERHOOD EXPRI1IKNCKS IN AI'STUALTA. Speaking at tho Claromont Brother hood on Sunday afternoon on the social lifo of Australia (.says tho "Islington Gazette" of December 30), the Rev. Victor Dell said that tho conditions wore very similar to those prevailing in England, lie believed that the ave rage drink bill was greater over here, but there were more drunkards In Aus tralia in proportion. Another failing that was very appar ent In New South AY'alos was the gam bling habit, and those two were the most difficult and hateful obstacles in the way of its reformers. In Sydney every man and boy scemcil to be try ing to get sixpence without working for it. Gambling was degrading and brutal ising numbers of its inhabitants, and ho considered that, on the whole, this i vice had a. far more degenerate effect on a man than'drink. Tho aborigine of Australia had been quick to copy the white man in his vices. Tho speaker said that in his own township, where 2:!0 acres had been al...

GIRL DRUGGED [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 New York correspondent of "The Daily Kx 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. This 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 ball being required, after Mrs. Marjorie Graff, the bride of two weeks of a Newark civil engineer, had told her story in court. Mrs. Gr^ff 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 experi 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 reviv...

CONVICT SNOBS [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 February 1914

CONVICT SNOBS There has 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 permitted 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 acros...

He could not un derstand it now. But then Gwendolen had never been understood by anyone. Her sphinx-liko personality had subju gated him, as well as her beauty and charm of mind and body. Yon must see him, dearest, before you-make up your mind—you will re cognise him—i assure you you will. And that will set everything right, llo remembers you. It was just by his de tails connected with you that I felt he was Robert; ho could not bo any one else. What is the matter?

AIRCRAFT GUN IN ACTION [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 February 1914

AIRCRAFT GUN IN ACTION Further trials with the aircraft des troying gun at the Needles Battery, Isle of Wight, took place yesterday (says "The Daily News" November 29). Bursting shells or shrapnell were fired. The targets, three box kites, were towed down the Channel against the wind by the destroyer Nubian, and ■when at a height of over two thousand feet and about a mile out to sea llriny 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. I Two or three at first were a little short, but then the gunner found the range, and shell after shell exploded close to the target, two of the kites being smashed. For a second trial of a new weapon under entirely fresh conditions the shooting appeared to bo splendid. It demonstrated the havoc which could bo played with aircraft at the height usually attained. The kites were rocked violently by the bursting of the shells which went wide. This see...

NAVAL HOLIDAY APPEAL FOR AGREEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 February 1914

NAVAL HOLIDAY APPEAL FOR AGREEMENT. Berlin, November ' 17.—The "Frio dcnswarte," the organ of German and Austrian Pacifists, contains an article by tlio naval publicist Cap tain Pcrslus, in which an unquali fied appeal ie made for an agreement or understanding on the basis o£ Mr Churchill's recent speeches (writes the Berlin correspondent of the "West minster Gazette" on November 17). Captain Pcrsius has lately been identified with the "Freisinn," quasi Pacifist Press; and his views are cer tainly not the views held in authori tative circles; but as he criticised severely the details of Mr Churchill's Guildhall speech, his approval of the principle of the British initiative has somo weight. PRESS ATTITUDE. j I Captain Pcrsius protests against the attitude of the Press towards the Churchill speeches. He puts it down to the fact that newspapers cannot resist the unpaid articles supplied to them by tho Navy League. This ex planation goes too far, because there are many independent news...

THE BLACK KNIGHT CLEANING NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 February 1914

THE BLACK KNIGHT j I CLEANING NEEDED. I It must be rather trying to be n •itatue. Peoplo can stand and stare it you ,nnd 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 uncared for. That is what is troubling Sir Henry Irving just now (says the "Westminster Gazette.") Sir Henry's situation is one that bellts him thoroughly. As an artist ho has no compunction in turning his back on tho 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 of them will fail to answer its helm and dash itself against his pedestal. Liko every other actor-manager, he has cast aside the trammels of the theatre, and wears tho frock coat that, a few years ago, stood for eminent respectability, with the doc...
