LONDON PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914

No confirmation of the report re ferred to- at a meeting of the London County -Council—that a great scheme is in preparation for the amalgamation of all the electric supply companies in London—could he obtained by a "Daily News" representative who, on Novem ber 26, made inquries at the County of London Electric Supply Company. The Bill which the company is pro moting for postponing the date at which the 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. In addition the borough councils are con- ] stantlv increasing the capital they have su...

SPORTING NOTES CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914

HSBEH SPORTING NOTES. ■ ■ —i — . . ■ CRICKET. A special meeting of the office-bearers of the Talbot Club will be held on Wed nesday evening nest, at eight o'clock, at the Borough Hall. Tho Railway Club are out on " strike " as far as Davey, of tho Maryborough Club, is concerned. Davoy, is a director in some of the Beaufort mines, where a strike (declared off on Saturday), was in existence for 19 weeks, and the Railway Club, it is staled, were annoyed at some actions of his in connection with the strike. Probably there is something more than this in it, although it was. stated almost from the first that the Railway team intended to refuse to play against Davey. But why they waited until the Beaufort strike was declared off is as liard to say as is why the team -should think it necessary to take the step .they have. Is it not bordering on absurdity? In referring to thq matter E. S. Herring, the Maryborough captain, remarked on Monday:—" What the Beaufort miners had to do with Maryboro...

TINCTURE OF RADIUM [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914

TINCTURE OF RADIUM Days when a morning: dose of tinc ture of radium would be possible were foreshadowed by Sir William Ramsav (according to the "Dally Express.") Hp pointed out at the annual genera1 meeting of tbe British Radium Cor poration that radium pure and simple would be dangerous to give patients ir> doses, because it could not be elimin ated from the system, but the chemi cals which could be obtained from it. diluted with water so as to make a solution, would be excellent in benefit ing patients, and would also give the shareholders in the corporation plenty of monetary profit.

IMPARTIALITY A CANDID RELATIVE. By "W*. Pett Ridge, in the "Westmin ster Gazette."). "So thankful to find you at home," cried the flustered young woman. "Been wondering all the way from Shep herd's Bush, 'Supposing Aunt Bertha isn't In, whatever shall I do?' Really, if you had happened to be out, I'd have made no more ado about it. but I should have gone straight down to the river. It's a positive fact, I assure you. "Why," plaintively, "what else could I have done?" "The weather's very trying," said the aunt. "Weather?" echoed the visitor, with bitterness. "Well for me if I'd noth ing worse than that to complain about." They went into the front room, where the aunt opened a window, brought forward an eaSy chair. The other de clined to sit down, and walked to and fro as well as the thick forest of fur niture permitted, twisting "white gloves, and frowning at her reflection when she passed by a small mirror. The aunt spoke of one or two local engage ments arranged between parties in ...

COOL-HEADED WOMEN "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914

COOL-BEADED WOMEN "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." The advent of the light motor-car has inspired hundreds of women to learn to drive, and almost every day on the Chelsea Embankment, which is free 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 the woman driver is either very good or hopeless. "I can tell at the first lesson," he said, "and it has been my experience that the good woman driver is superior to the male driver. Posesssing a delicate touch, she 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 taxicab driver, that she suffered horribly from nerves all night. "The other day a young married woman, with absolutely no experience of motoring, drove on her second les son through Oxford street and Regent street...

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914

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 Daily News") states that a committee is to he 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 are 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 which form its so calle...

HOME DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914

Lord Glenconner (Mr Asquith's brother-in-law and former Liberal M.P. for Salisbury), addressing the 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 the 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 be a pre liminary period of recruits' training. If the extension of the Territorials, both in numbers and training, could be satisfactorily solved...
