"THE MASTER'S MASTER" RIGHT TO IIIT. Herbert Mforter, the village postmast er of Great Cressingham, Norfolk, was charged at Swaffham yesterday with assaulting two boys in the school play ground (says the "Daily, Mail" of No vember 27). The boys said that IMorter's boy had stoned them, but they did not retalitate. The defendant went to the school and hit them several times, saying they had hit his son. The mother of one of the. boys was stated to have asked the de fendant why he hit her boy, and he said. "I am n school manager appointed by the N'orfolk Education Committee. I am the schoolmaster's master. I can go into, the playground and hit boys. There is no law to prevent me." Morter, in defence. said the boys were a nuisance, and had ill-treated his son. The chairman said the Bench felt strongly that the defendant had abused his position, and had by this case prov ed himself unfit for it. Morter was fined £1/S8/, including costs.

THEATRE OF FUTURE DOOM OF SPOKEN WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
THEATRE OF FUTURE * DOOM OF SPOKEN WORDS. Even those who-do not agree with HI. Leon Bakst's theories on the develop ment of various forms of art will not deny the freshness and originality which makes the Russian painter one of the most interesting personalities of the Paris of to-day (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily News," De cember 18). 3M, Bakst is thoroughly sincere in his convictions. He doesn't play to the gallery, though lie may startle it by such dicta as those enunciated to-day in the course of my chat with him in his atelier on the Boulevard Malsher bes. TRIUMIPH OF PAINTING "The theatre of the future means the triumph of painting and the gradual abolition of the spoken word," he be gan. "The spoken word will find another and a more modernist arena. The -book, whether tragedy or drama, will be sufficient to itself, without be ing obliged to have recourse to inter pretation, which always leaves- some thing to be desired.

BABIES FOR £20 -EACH MAN. AND TOMAN MISSING All efforts to find the whereabouts of a middle-aged cduple named Melbourne had failed, it was reported yesterday, when an inquest was resumed at Southwark on a nine-weeks-old child (says "The Daily Mail" of December 12). The child, whose mother, Ethel Mel bourne, lived with the missing couple, had been placed with a foster-mother, 'who was paid £20. Another girl, a Javanese, who lived with the Mel bournes, also had a child, which after iwards died. It, too, had been adopted by a foster-mother for £20. One of the girls was understood to be an adop ted daughter and the other a niece of the Melbournes. Charity Tedman, a railway porter's wife, of Nightingale grove, Hither Green, said she had a daughter named Ethel Tedman, aged 17. The last time she saw her was last summer, when she called on the witness. Mrs Mel bourne was the witness's sister. About two years ago Mrs Melbourne wanted a maid and the witness's daughter was engaged by her. Afte...
DARING JEWEL ROBBERY SUBSTITUTED BOX [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
DARING JEWEL ROBBERY SUBSTITUTJID BOX X few days ago curious news was re ceived from Nantes to the effect that a daring jewel robbery had becn com mitted there to the detriment of a travelling agent, whose box of jewels was mysteriously removed, and another filled with soap, put in its place (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph," December 16). The agent, Al. Monnot, had come from l?,eancon with a box full of jewels and r valise. As he had to visit a number of jewellers in the town, he called on one of them, who was till then his best customer, a certain M. Plazolles; and as his box was too heavy to move about easily, he asked the Jeweller to keep it for him as well as the valise. On the following day, according to li. Plazolles, a messenger came and told him that he had orders to take the box and the valise to the railway station. The Jeweller stated that he gave up the articles,- but soon afterwards he a l leged that he had doubts, and tele phoned to 2M. Monnot, te...

SMOKING IN BUNKS [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
SMOKING IN BUNKS When the Board of Trade inquiry in to the burning of the emigrant ship Volturno was resumed yesterday (says the "Daily Mail" of December 6), a steerage steward who was known in the Volturno as "Samson" - "because I vos so leedle," he explained to the court - narrated in voluble broken English how the "bright, bright flames" rushed out of No. 1 hold. Mr Raeburn (for the Board of Trade): Did you see passengers falling overboard?-Yes. 'Where was that?-On the after-ick. A Frenchman took his daughter, I think it was, and threw her into the water.

Counsel: How did you get the life belts on the children?-Some small children we put them twice round. In other cases we cut the bel...

HOUSE OF BEDFORD BURKE'S COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
HOUSE OF BEDFORD BURKE'S COMMENT. The big sale of the Duke of Bed ford's property (Covent Gardep) Tecalls a statement of Burke as to how the earlier Russells got their vast landed possessions. "The Duke of Bedford," he said, "is the leviathan of all creatures of 'the Crown.. . The grants to the House of Bedford were so enormous as not only to outrage economy but to stagger credulity." At one time the Duke of Bedford was set down as holding 86,424 acres in eight counties. A great deal of his property has been sold of late years. Sir John ilacdonnell, in his work on the land question, has some severe strictures concerning the Duke of Bed ford's gates, now, of course, done away with, "which are closed at early, odd, and inconvenient hours, and which in dicate the seigneurial rights to treat some of the populous districts of Lon don as if they were private gardens." The motto of the Russells is the fatalist one, "Che sara, sara"--What will be, will be. PRESENT DUKE. The Duke of Bedford,...

LESSONS WITH BABIES SUBSTITUTES FOR DOLL [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
LESSONS WITH BABIES SUBSTITUTES FOR DOLL The district of Merton, Surrey, is proud of the possession of the two youngest heroines in England. These are Kathleen Shipton, aged six weeks, and Rose Bennett, aged seven months. They are the two babies who have been chosen to replace the doll which until recently was used in the Single gate Council Girls' School for the in struction of the scholars in domestic acomplishments. The doll had been almost worn out by its long course of dressing and un dressing and washing and putting to sleep. When it was proposed to sub stitute infants the danger to them was pointed out, but the girls of the school maintain that the risks were exagger ated. The doll, it is stated, was never dropped in all its existence, and under the eyes of their experienced teachers the girls handle the human substitutes as carefully. Kathleen and Rose (says "The Daily Mail" of December 12) if appearance is anything, are waxing strong on the routine of bathing, dressing, and...
SERVANTS IN CLOVER LOUNGES AND BATHROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
SERVANTS IN CLOVER LOUNGES AND BA11HROOMS. Club servants are notoriously the most, fortunate of their kind, but as a result of -renovations at the Carlton Club the servants of that institution now claim, to live in more luxurious conditions than any other servants in London. The renovation scheme originated in a survey of the servants' quarters, which was followed at once by sweep-. ing changes. Dormitories, ere swept away to give place to separate bed rooms, bathrooms have been intro duced wherever space was available, while where conditions permitted it bathrooms were built into the bed rooms. Formerly one servants' hall did duty for the whole staff. To-day there are two halls, one for the male and the other for the female servants. In these halls are comfortable lounges, luxuri ous armchairs, well-fitted writing tables. On the walls hang handsome pictures, the gift of Lord Claud Ham ilton, chairman of the club. These comforts (says "The Daily Mail") are for the servants in their ...
