HOW TO RECITE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 3 June 1914
HOW TO REOITE. " Australia and New Zealand are full of aspiring reciters and public speakers," says W. A. Somerset in the July issue of " Life," just to hand, and in order to satisfy some at least of the aspirations of these would-be orators, Mr. Alexander Watson, the famous English elocutionist, explains in aan interview his methods of vocal training and elocutiosi. It is a .really valuable exposition oni the .art of recit ing and speaking in public, and should prove valuable not merely to those com petitors for distinction -in the numerous competitions that are held throughout Australasia. but to all whose duties call upon them for public speaking. In the same issue of "Life " an Aus tralian traveller' continues his articles on hunting and trading in South Africa, and describes exactly what it costs in time, mohey, and energy to equip a big-game shooting expeditionl in the regions of the upper Zambezi and the Congo, where such g5ame as hippo., lions, snd the multitudinous antelope...

THE MARINER' BIBLE. TURNING OVER THE PAGES OF A SHIP'S LOG-BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 3 June 1914
THE MARINER' BIBLE. TURNING OVER THE PAGES QE A SHIP'S LOG-BOOK,. The log, or log-book, is a ship's "Bible.'' I. At least, it resembles an 6bl1 I i;millyi Bible in being a record ::of ei thing- iniportant that hap pens to 0the ship's "family." r.;If , la:baby is born, if a couple are married; if: a person dies on board ship:?the log is the official record of thle ev nt:. Incidentally, the ' offi cial" birthplace of a baby born at sea on a British ship is Stepney. In the event of a collision or other disa'ster, the log affords all-import ant evidence. It will be remembered that in the case of the collision' between H.IL.S. Hawke and the Olympic counsel for the Olympic made much of the fact that the Hawke's deck log could not be found. This reminds one that two logs are kept-viz., the deck log and the fair log.; - In the Navy the deck log. is kept by the officer of the watch, the fair log by the navigating lieutenant. In the merchant service the officer of the watch again keeps the de...
The Matron's Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 3 June 1914

There had been a surgical operation in the house, which was happily over. Some time after the doctor had gone, the mistress of the house discovered on a table what she took to be one of the surgical instrumnents, in advertently left behind. She first carefully cleansed the tiolished steel with a solution of carbolic acid and water, then rubbed it dry with a flannel sloth, wrapped it up,and sent a servant with it to the doctor. With it she sent this note:- " Dear Doctor,-When you were at the house yesterday, you were so unfortunate as to mislay one of your surgical instru ments. I have taken good care of it, and return it by the messenger.-I' am, very truly, etc." Before long the messenger came back. with the same parcel, a little rumpled. by apening, and with it brought this note from the doctor : " Dear Mrs --...
Amsterdam Diamond Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 3 June 1914
Amsterdam Diamond` Industry. -' The American Consul at Amsterdam, in an official report, states that the dia mond industry, so important a source of income for Amsterdam, had a rather trying time in 1912. Buyers were generally backward in 1912, and disposed to offer only reduced prices. Large sellers were inclined to hold their dia monds, however, and this caused a slow market, especially during the last three months. With all this dulness the prices of rough diamonds advanced. This had been t' e trend for some years, and was obviously due to the fact that a syndicate controlled the supply, regulated output,. and fixed prices at will. The rough diamonds are marked; in London. The imports from there in 1912 are stated to have been £9,000,000 in value, about the same as in1090

Gentle applications of Zam-Buk will iquickly banish these "disoomforting symptoms,.and, if the .swellings btrst, leaving the skin surface raw and ulcer ated, Zam-Buk is doubly valuable be cause of its unique healing and anti septic liowers.

DIVORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 3 June 1914
DIVORCE.s Judging by, recent statistics, the prevalence of divorce cases is grow .ing and increasing in magnitude. Reading the daily papers one can hardly miss a day but that some ac count is noticed of parties being' un able to agree, and who seek' release from their irksome bonds of holy xrt rimony in the atmosphere of the courts. By a careful study of the de tails, it is apparent that misplaced af fection is responsible for, a great num her of the cases -desertion in perhaps the majority; misconduct oy one of the two parties being also of frequent occurrence. " Whatever the cause may be, the effect of ventilating these un happy domestic infidelities in the open court is abhorrent, and that the re sponsibility and sanctity of marriage does not enter into their union is plainly discernible.. To break wit tingly one of the Creator's most just and beneficent commandments, " Whom God hath joined let no man put 'asunder," is surely, a heinous of fence; even if it is permissible by the ...
