Mr. Dyson Lister, picture dealer, of Royal parade, Harrogate, sued Mr. H. Silva White, also a picture dealer, of St. James's, London, W„ to recover £100, money received.

EDUCATION BILL RELIGIOUS ASPECT [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

EDUCATION BILL RELIGIOUS ASPliOT May I bo allowed once more to tres pass upon your space with regard to j the religious aspect of the new Educa tion Bill? (wrote Bishop Frodsham to "The Manchester Guardian," Decem ber 15). The Northern Counties Educa tion 'League, as reported in "The Man chester Guardian" for December 11, ex pressed some concern lest the promised new education legislation should fail to meet the desires of Nonconformists upon this point; they expressed n hope that in "redressing: old grievances new ones would not be created by counten ancing tire claims to a sectarian right of entry into schools during the period of compulsory education." All of us are desirous of improving primary education in England, and of ending the deplorable religious difficul ties. These difliculties many besides Nonconformists believe have been largely due to narrowness on the part of Anglican school managers, but, on tho other hand, many besides Anglicans think the situation has been aggra...

TIME'S CHANGES NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

TIME'S CHANGES N'KW SPIRIT IN* CHURCH. Mr Athelstan Riley, tho well-known Anglican layman, writes a notable let ter from the Athenajum Club to "The Guardian" on the new spirit in tile Church. 1 was lunching at the United Univer sity Club the other day, when a very youthful clergyman, in a white tie and low-cut waistcoat, sat down beside me. 1 mentally labelled my neighbor as quite obviously an extreme Broad Churchman, a follower, let us say, of the versatile and amusing Dean of Durham. I thought no more about him, and burled myself in my news paper. Presently a young layman, evidently a recent companion at one of the universities, sat down at his table. What was my astonishment to hear his greeting, " Have you seen Zanzibar's s-lendid letter?" Now let mo point the moral of this little story. You publish this week a deplorable sermon by the Dean of Norwich on Prayer-book Revision. I will fasten upon only one sentence, and that shall be one where he doubt less fancied himself most sec...

BIRD WORSHIPPERS DISCOVERIES AMONG AFRICAN TRIBES [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

BIRD WORSHIPPERS DISCOVERIES AMONG AFRICAN TRIBES Mr P. Amaury Talbot, a district Commissioner in Southern Nigeria, and his wife have just made a remark able journey of over 4,300 miles in the Eket district, a country of rivers and creeks, many unexplored, with a popu lation of a quarter of million lbibioj* (says "The Daily Express"). In an interview with Router's repre sentative, Mr Talbot says he found customs and ceremonies which appear to have come down unchanged from the days of the Pharaohs. In some parts the dead are roughly mummified, while underground burial chambers are to be found planned like those of ancient Egypt. He found also traces of bird woVship and witnessed a bird dance never before seen by Europeans. Most of the towns have their sacred pool, inhabited by good or evil spirits, to which in the past countless human victims were sacrificed. On two of these holy waters—the Lalce of Life and the neighboring Pool of Hatred and Death—Mr Talbot and Mr Eckin, of the Kwa ...

SURPRISED INTRUDER [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

SURPRISED INTRUDER What is the best procedure to adopt when in the middle of the night you find a burglar in the bedroom?. The answer is to follow the example of Mr and Mrs William Rush, who live in AVycliffe road, Northampton. Their dramatic capture of a suspected bur glar was described at the borough police court on Saturday (says "The iJaily Express" of December- S), when a man named David Boyd was committed for trial. At 4 o'clock in the morning Mrs Rush awakened from her sleep, and saw a man moving about the room. With re markable presence of. mind she quietly nudged her husband, and whispered to him that' a man was in the room. _Mr Rush, collecting 'Us wits, waited , his opportunity, and presently leapt on the intruder, and knocked him down. A fierce struggle followed, and the stranger broke away, and bolted from the room. In hurrying downstairs, however, he stumbled, and fell. Mr Rush attacked him again, and this time secured him.

FISHERMAN'S FANCY [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

FISHERMAN'S FANCY By Horace Hutchinson in "The West minster Gazette." A pleasant tale is related of an inge nious gentleman who endeavored to take advantage, for the more success ful catching of the shy trout in a cer tain well-known clialk-stream, of the familiarity which the fish acquire with a human iigure that they often see be side the river, and that is associated with agreeable sensations, such as the sensation of dining well. Possibly the very fact of this famili arity is not generally known; but it is a fact that is not to be doubted, for it has been proved again and again, and may be eoniirmed l>y a visit to the nearest iish hatchery, that trout in the nursery know perfectly the man, or the men, who feed tliem. They will come right up to the surface, playing about, expectant of food, when these friendly figures are oh the bank. On the other hand, if it be a stranger that approaches, they make off at once into their hiding-places. Nor does it suffice for them that tlio j...

PAY OF CLERGY [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

PAY OF CLERGY j The Bishop of Salisbury (Dr nidge way), in a statement on the poverty of many of the clergy in his diocese, says there are a few parishes—he is thankful that ho is not the patron of any of them—in which the incum bent's income is about 30/ a week. The difficulty was aggravated by the fact that nine out of every ten in cumbents who receive these starveling wages were burdened with enormous reiHory houses and large gardens, the upiTeep of which required. moro than • the income of the benefices. Shortly after ho came to Salisbury the bishop received a letter from a clergyman's wife, staling lhaL they were obliged to live in an enormous house; they could afford 110 servants, and she (the clergyman's wile) had to do all the work of the house; and at the mo ment of writing they had no coals In the house.

ESKIMOS [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

ESKIMOS Vilhjalmur Stefansson, who dis covered the white Eskimos, has some very interesting tilings to say In "Harper's Magazine" about the Christianising of the Eskimos—those of Alaska. News just comes that the explorer's ship, the Karluk, with 25 men, is miss ing, carried away in a storm. He and his companions were exploring a vast arctic continent. The\ explorer was himself once a Divinity student, and lias a keen in terest in missionary work. He points out the danger of assuming that the Rskimo in religious matters means what we mean. He thinks in terms of his own knowledge, and not of nurs. Among the Eskimos the expression "a wise man," being translated, moans "a man who knows a large number of ta boos." He is an honored member of the community always, who knows more than anyone else about the things that ought not to be done. To know these things is very important, for it they be done—if a taboo be broken—no matter how innocently and unknow ingly, the inevitable penalty follow...

COMMONWEALTH TRADE NOT LANGUISHING.

The president of this body is no other than the present High Commis sioner for the Commonwealth (Sir George Reid), while the chairman is Sir John Cockburn, who is as much at home in the Motherland as in Australia herself. " The report then presented has raised some points of great interest both to Australia's primary producers and to consumers in this country. It is need less to Insist on the importance, from an Imperial point of view, of the trade in Australasian frozen meat. With an ever-growing industrial population and a home meat supply incapable of in definite expansion, it is of the utmost moment to the workers of this country Lliat the...
