THE COBPEN TIMES HEYTESBURY ADVERTISER Published on Wednesdays and Saturdays. SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1914. A Progressive Step. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 31 January 1914

THE COBPEN TIMES HEYTESBURY ADVERTISER I'ublitlcd on Wednesday! and Saturdays. SATURDAY, JANUAKY 31, I9H. A Progressive Step. At a meeting of the local School Committee on Thursday night, an animated discussion took place bs to the possibility of getting a bathing place nearer to the town, and so obviate the necessity of providing vehiclos every week for conveying the i children to Lako Elingamite. The most suitable position is just below the school ground, and the secretary was instructed to write tQ the Lands Department and see if a site can be obtained on which to erect thp necessary buildings, &c. Then the question of funds arose, and it was thought that the excursion money (over £10) held by the committee could be devoted to that purpose, and as this wouli be far from sufficient that the public might be asked to subscribe tbo remainder. The chairman of the committee (Mr. Grayland) offered £5 to start the ball rolling, while Messrs. John McKenzie and J. Heggie agreed to ...

LONDON PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 31 January 1914

LONDON PROBLEM No confirmation of the report re ferred to at a meeting of the London County Council-that a great schomo is in preparation for the amalgamation of all the electric supply companies in London-could bo obtained by a "Daily News" representative who, on Novem ber 26. made Inquries at tho County of London Electric Supply Company. The Bill which the company is pro moting for postponing tho date at wliich tho London County Council may purchase the electric companies has, our represntative was informed, noth ing to do with the question of amal gamation. Despite these denals, the question of the future of London's sup ply is admittedly causing Increased anxiety and interest. There are thirteen private companies and 15 local authorities producing elec tricity in the Council area. The total capital of the companies is about four teen millions, that of the local autho rities about six and a half millions.

NEW IMPRESSION i I Some interesting impressions by a Canadian visiting England aro given in the "Morning Poet." My first impressions of England \^oro gained through a car window, he writes. Now. I know all about the smallness of the fields, their fresh green, the hedges, tho softly rounded trees; wo Britons from oversew aro trained to expect those, and tlio Eng lish countryside is astonishlnglv fa miliar to us at tho first glo.nce.

STORY OF LORD DUNEDIN Among the stories going- the rounds at the moment concerning Lord Dune din is one which tells how ho once Incurred judicial censuro (says tho "Westminster Gazette"). In the days when lie acted as Junior counsel he chanced to lie voicing the interests of a client in the Second Division of the Court of Session, Edinburgh, and, ap parently finding his argumonts leb3 persuasive than lie could have wished, he requested their lordships to imagine for tho moment that they were navvies, and to look at the question from tho workers' standpoint. Thereupon Lord Moncrlcff, who then acted as Lord Jus tlcc-Clcrk, informed tho audacloub advocate that "the invitation was one quite unsuited to tho dignity of tho Court."

TWO WOMEN. rom Mrs. M. Darcy, 1G3 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising 110 doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thencc on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years." l-rom Mrs. iiva bharrer, 24 Hanover street, Windsor, Vic.

5,000 Boya Coming. The hopes of tlio immigration authorities, oppressed at (he beginning of the year, that 1914 would see a strengthening of the tide of new arrivals up to tho 1012 standard, scorn to havo been short-lived. The Minister in charge of the Immigration Bureau now expresses tlio opinion that there will bo a " billing off" ill the number of immigrants this _v?nr na compared with last year. Remembering that tho immigrants who arrived in 19P3 were much fewer in number than fchoso of 1012, it ia very clear that thoro is something wrong in the arrangements. Tho opinion is now expressod l>y tho authorities that to boys Alio State will hnve to look for increased population. These are easy to Bccine, aud there is a demand for their services. It is hoped to bring o.OOO of them out in tho next eleven months. Whilst youth provides excellent material for immigration purposes, there should certainly bo some satisfactory explanation of why land seekers with capital are not to figure...

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 31 January 1914

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. M. Edmond Perrier, Director of the Natural History Museum in Paris, who has just returned from the Berne International Conference for the Pro tection of Nature (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Dally News") states that a committee is to be formed (with its seat at Basle) with the ob ject of framing severe Customs laws designed to prevent the destruction of certain animal species. In Africa, for instance, explained M. Perrier, there are only 400,000 ele phants left, and they are being killed at the rate of 40,000 a year, whereas their rate of reproduction is slow. Whales are in a like case, and M. Perrier foresees very hard times for the Norwegian Trust, which combines 20 whale fishery companies, whose shareholders aro small investors. Dealing with the osprey, which is found only in New Guinea, M. Perrier points out that the aigrette is obtained from the male bird, in whose plumage occur annually at the laying season the 40 odd sprays whi...

The advent of tho light motor-car has Inspired hundreds of women to learn to drive, and almost every day on the Chelsea Embankment, which is freo from heavy traffic, passers-by watch the beginning of the woman motorist's career. An instructor Informed a represen tative of the "Daily Mail" on Novem ber 26 that tho woman driver la either very good or hopeless. "I can tell at tho first lesson," he said, "and it has been my experience that the good woman driver is superior to tho male driver. Posessslng a delicate touch, sho rarely bungles the gears, and when driving Is coolness personified. It is, I think, a question of concentration, for a woman I taught recently told me, after driving through London with the skill and dash of a taxlcab driver, that she suffered horribly from nerves all night.

HOME DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 31 January 1914

HOME DEFENCE Lord Glenconner (Mr Asquitli's brother-in-law and former Liberal M.P. for Salisbury), addressing tho Liverpool Liberal Federation yesterday (says the "Daily Mail" of December 2) said that despite attenuated numbers the Territorials cost £500,000 more than Lord Haldane assured us would be the maximum cost for tho full establish ment of 312,000 men. That was not sound business, and the time had come for an end to be put to these wasteful leakages. What were we to do? There was an alternative measure between the Terri torial Force as now raised and conscrip tion, the latter of which was unneces sary and had never been advocated. The alternative was to compel the youth of all classes to take its turn in the Territorial Force, but instead of the six months' training which Lord Hal dane proposed should be given after war broke out, there should bo a pre liminary period of recruits' training. If the extension of the Territorials, both in numbers and training, could bo satisfac...
