RADIUM AS INVESTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
RADIUM AS INVESTMENT Tlicrc is no more permanent way in which n onev can be invested than in the pirrchase of radium, it was stated at a meeting of the governors of the ■Middlesex Hospital. Sir Alfred Pearce Gould, president of the clinical section of the Royal College of Medicine, said that the pur chase of nullum was not an expendi ture of money, but an investment of money. Radiuin did not get poorer ly giving off Its emanation.

CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. Professor William Stirling', of Man chester University, delivering the Lady Priestley Memorial Lecture oi> "Health, Fatigue, ami Repose," said thaL most of the breakdowns in a man's life were due to himself, either because of ignorance or recklessness, or both. Overwork, without sufllcient repair of an organ, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was the primary cause of fatigue. All the or gans of the body could not run at full speed at the same time. Mental fatigue greatly impaired bodily activity, and physical or muscular fatigue had a dis tinct effect on brain activity. The observations of Dr. Leonard Hill on the effects of a liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most important. Somnolence in churches and chapels seemed on occasion to occur at sermon time, out it was not in all cases to be attributed to the sermon. The ex planation lay rather in the badly-venti lated atmosphere, and in the fact that Sunday, though the first ...

LIVINGS FOR THEIR SPOUSES [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
I LIVINGS FOIl TIIEIK SPOUSES The part played by the wives of the clergy in the benefices trafliu is very remarkable—no class. Indeed, figures more conspicuously (says "The Scot tish Chronicle.") Tc say that some of these ladies are the active partners of their husbands is rather to under state the case. They buy benefices, present their spouses thereto, and then, after the necessary 12 months have elapsed, dispose of the advowsons (, for welcomo cash with an easy grace j which is all their own. "Tho Germans don't know every thing; they don't know how to trans late English and Scotch words," said Sir Frederick Bridge last night In an address at the London Institution on "The Beggar's Opera" (says the "Dally Mall" of November 27)- The song for "Polly" was set to a delightful old Scotch tunc, "Gin (if) thou were mine awn thing," and the translator not knowing the meaning of "gin" looked up tho word in the dictionary and translated it "schnapps!" (Laughter.)

CHAPTER VII. Face to Face. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
CHAPTER VII. Face to Face. Gwendolen stood staring Tor a few moments at the strange, big bearded man, wlio was contemplating her with evident amusement. He—Robert" At first almost paralysed with the shock, she awalcened to a stinging r.ensts ot mingled anger and resentment, won dering how Ronald, whose position he was usurping, and Lady Montamor, who was lier lost Robert's mother, dared to assert that he and ner vanish ed lover—dead to everyone for over fifteen years past—were one and the same. "You—my cousin Robert? How dare you say so!" she gasped. She felt she was speaking and behaving weakly, which added to her exaspera tion. Ronald ought to have iol.1 her this was Charles Daunce at once! He had behaved,like a conspirator! He gave an awkward little laugh and his bronzed cheeks reddened slightly. "I dare say so, because I am," he emphatically replied. "I am very sorry that you are disappointed in my development from the boy I was when I saw you last into—well, thi.;." his burly p...

The Great Montamor tSase. By ALICE M. DIKHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts, ' CHAPTER' VI. The Pretender. . The entrance to Riverview, as the villa was called, was in a lane. It -was well that there w s ft wide car riage-drive and a Jarge stable-yard, for the place was well stockcd with i .motor-cars when Miss Halldare had slowly driven in. Arrangements had been made at the inns for the "put "ing up" ot the horse vehicles. There was a festive air about the Irees and shrubs and house front, olectrie lights having: been festooned about, producing (he effect of a shower of fireflies; mid as Gwendolen ascended the steps, under an awning, she stop -ped^gjiort to admire the interior. The Siall; ordinarily of a Kind-which'"would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was transformed into a bower of pale .green s'Okv draperies, festooned witti roses. Maids in white and rose color smilingly conducted the ladies to the dining-room, changed into a boudoir. Gwendole...
LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
r^" 7 » IN WORKHOUSE I ■MIX AND MUDDLE. (By Chris Massie in "The Daily Mail.") By using existing institutions and by applying to them something like com mon sense his Department has been able in the last few years to put an f.nd to what were known as the horrors of the mixed workhouse. The goats had been separated from sheep, and there had been segregations o£ classes and classification of individuals. Thus Mr John Burns in the debate on .Mr Carr-Goinm's London Poor Law Hill, reported in "The Daily Mail," May l!li. 1911. Very nice indeed, but it is not true. Mr Burns' Department has done no thing of the kind, nor will it ever do anything of the kind. 1 know that in some other work houses, not in this one, timid attempts have been made to segregate classes and classify individuals, but no very successful result has been achieved. The goat outside the workhouse is often ■ a sheep and even a lamb • inside the workhouse, and vice versa, according to the effect it has upon liim. In any c...

uov •' divs-gitaf ;yc SIR RIDER HAGGARD'S VIEW A meeting on behalf of Dr. Bai nardo's Homes was held yesterday afternoon at Sunderland House, by permission of the Duchess of Marl borough (reports the "Morning Post" of December 1). The Marchioness of Blandford received the guests. Lady Cowjlray presided, and said that in the Barnardo Homes the chil dren were taught that the world had need of them. The American Ambas sador (Dr. Page) said that the work of Dr. Barnardo had shed its light ail over tho world, because of tho excellent and unerring trueness with which it had been conducted. Tlio Duchess of Somerset said that 00,000 children had marched through the "ever open door," and only one per cent, had been failures. Up 1&lt;> the end of the year the homes had sent 25,000 emigrants to Canada, and all "of them had started with some knowledge of the trade they were to follow.

CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. Gloomy reports of crime continue to come from India (says the "Westmin ster Gazette" of November SS). The judges of tlie Chief Court of Lower Burma, in a review of the past year's criminal justice, say they regret that the prevalence of crime in the Lower Province is an "even more seri ous feature of the administration than it was in 1911," and cannot regard with equanimity the continuous increase in tlie number of reported cases of of fences. They feel, however, that none of the remedies which have been suggested wholly reach to tlie root of the disease. The causes of crime are mainly three poverty, disease,' and low vitality, and defective moral education. In last year's report the judges indi cated their opinion that the moral sense of the people was diminishing with the slackening of religious ties and obser vances, that with the decay of ancient beiiefs the Buddhist religion is losing its moral sanction as an inspiring force in the lives of i...

FOOD IN COFFIN CUSTOMS AT GIPSY BURIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914
FOOD IN COFFIN CUSTOMS AT GIPSY BURIAL. Pathetic scones marked the funeral at Ilford yesterday of Mark Cedre, the child of one of the Russian gipsies who recently settled there (says the "Daily Express" of November IS). The mother became frantic when she saw the body in the mortuary, and had to be removed by force. All tho way across the cemetery to the grave she cried continuously, "My son, my son." At the graveside she struggled so fiercely with the friends who were holding her that she nearly slipped into the grave. Curious customs were observed at tho burial. The child was dressed in his best clothes, with a new red hat and shoes of tho same color to match, the latter being beautifully embroidered and or namented with brightly-colored beads. Each mourner placed silver and cop per coins in the coflin. and the father put some bread and meat with the money. l'he father ceremoniously poured some claret over the codln before it was lowered into the grave.
