Rotary Ideals and Practice. ViniHnsr members of the Victorian Rotary VClubs have mentioned thht some ol' the ideals of their movement are service and the attainment of iru t'ernalional ppace. Service is a"means towards achieving Hie latter, but inter- national peace.- is only feasible after Hie attainment of national peace. 'To proihote national pe-.u-e, the complete absence is essential ol' internal bjek orlnrs between state factions. In Can- berra is a moans to ensuing state an- tagonisms, but state antagonism» and petty feelings w11, continue in Austral lia only so long as its Individual citi- zens encourage it.

Topics of the Times The Imperial Conference: J "The Imperial Conference, deal in!/ as it docs, irith the position of the British Empire to-day, is one of fai'-reachtny and vital import- ance to every citizen of the Com monicealth. In the name of all the people of Australia, J think'1 can say that Australians desired that all paris of the^ Empire should .re- alise Australians' ideals and aspira- tions, that those in charge of affairs should have 'absolute freedom, ab- solute rights, and absolute powers of self-government. We desire to yo forward progressively develop- ing the country, but we demand that ire should do it as an integral part of the Empire, because .the future lies inside that Empire."

PYRAMID PROPHECIES [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926
PYRAMID PROPHECIES Engineering investigation shows that the Great Pyramid in Egypt embodies a correct geometrical representation of &nbsp; astronomical distances, periods and &nbsp; &nbsp; variable rates of motion and their cor- &nbsp; &nbsp; rect formulae giving dates precisely to the day, month, and year within the period 4699 B.C. to A.D. 2045. The dates are fixed by seven inde- &nbsp; &nbsp; pendent series of astronomical demon- &nbsp; &nbsp; trations. All the mathematical fac- tors of these series are simple fractions &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; of the value of the solar year in days. &nbsp; According to D. Davidson and H. Al- dersmith in "The Great Pyramid: Its &nbsp; Divine Message," the interpretation of the pyramid's message elucidates the Messianic prophecies current in Egypt &nbsp; 50OO years ago and indicates the bear- &nbsp; ing of these and other pro...
SERIOUS CHARGE Drugs and Hypnotism REMARKABLE CASE BATHURST, Wednesday [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926
SERIOUS CHARGE Drugs and Hypnotism REMARKABLE CASE BATHURST, Wednesday At the Quarter Sessions to-day, a re- markable story was unfolded of hyp- notism, resulting in a farmer and his wife coming within the entire control of a hypnotist. &nbsp; &nbsp; Charles Henry Martin was charged formally with using intoxicating drug on the wife of Albert Talbot, share- farmer, of Linthorpe, in the Elgandra district. The Crown case was that Martin while staying with the Talbots, offered to provide medical treatment of his own creation for Mrs. Talbot, who was then in ill health. The Talbots con- sented, but subsequently they both be- came ill, developing symptoms of in- sanity, hysteria, and physical weakness. The upshot was that Talbot and his wife on one or two occasions went about naked like raving lunatics, and were subsequently removed to a men- tal hospital at Orange. The original belief was that the Talbots had been hypnotised, but medical testimony was that their condition...

Foch, Weygand, and Heve, wives of the fam- ous French Army commanders, an or- ganisation has been formed" to erect at Lille a memorial to Louie de Bet tignies, a teacher who became one of the notable French heroines of tho war.

Election Humor. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926
Election Humor. As usual, there were many humorous incidents both in the methods and language of the voters. There was the matter-of-fact lady—garrulous and nervous—who asked questions galore, &nbsp; and volunteered to all and sundry how she intended to vote, and gave her can- did opinion of Mr. Bruce. There were also men—and they were numerous—who stated they would not trouble to vote—only not to do so would cost them "two quid." And this was also stated by several of the gentl- er sex, in politer language. But the funniest incident was that of the man who had been imbibing too freely, who told the Policeman who re- monstrated with him, that he was a J.P., and was very indignant when told that no doubt he was, if J.P. stood for Judge of Pints. &nbsp;
AMUSEMENT HALL Lease at Manuka A CURIOUS SITUATION [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926
AMUSEMENT HALL Lease at Manuka A CURIOUS SITUATION A serious position is likely to arise as result of developments in connection &nbsp; with the lease at Manuka to he used for the erection of an amusement hall. The lease, which is unique in the Federal Capital Territory, was sub- &nbsp; mitted at public auction in February &nbsp; last, with special conditions attaching to its issue. The urgency of providing entertainment for a large and growing population led the Federal Capital Com- mission to require that the lessee should commence building within three months, and complete the building be- fore the expiration of 12 months. The time time for the commencement of building operations expired on May 10, &nbsp; thus rendering the lease liable to for- &nbsp; feiture. At the public action in February last, there was spirited bidding up to &nbsp; £7,000 at which it was knocked down to &nbsp; a syndicate. Other bidders were pre- pared...
THE HUNGRY SEA [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926
THE HUNGRY SEA If a map of England were placed &nbsp; before you and you wore asked to put your finger on Dulwich, you would probably be at sea. That, as matter of fact, is just where most of Dulwich is to-day—at sea, or, rather, at the bottom of it. The ruins of an old church are all that remains of this once prosperous port, which in its prime was more important than Ipswich or Yarmouth. Some idea of its size way be gained, from the fact that it possessed "fifty-two churches, chap- els, religious houses, and hospitals, a King's palace, a bishop's seat, a may- or's mansion, and a mint." Where are they now? The waves wash over them. They are "dead." The tides of the East Coast flow past. According to legend, visitors to Cromer may hear the chimes of Crom- er's ancient church clanging away out to sea when the storms lash into the belfry. Certain it is that, two miles from the cliffs, the old town of Ship- den lies, and bits of it may be de- &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
Australian Rules A WALK OVER. Federals v. Queanbeyan [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926
Australian Rules A WALK OVER. Federals v. Queanbeyan &nbsp; The game played between Feder- als and Queanbeyan on the Quean- beyan Showground on Saturday af- ternoon, for the Richardson Trophy Cup, was not up to the high standard expected. The Federals have demonstrated, re- peatedly this season, that they can play an excellent combination, but their display on Saturday was far be- low their usual form. They failed many times on account of bad system, being weak in forwards and wing's. The Queanbeyans, on the other hand had a strong and well trained com- bination. They owe their success &nbsp; mainly to Moss, Miller and Sides. This trio proved themselves a tower of strength to their team, and formed an invincible combination, resulting in Queanbeyan adding 6-6 in the first quarter. As the game progressed it became apparent that the Federals were not holding their opponents, and the end came as an anti-climax, when the Federals ceased play and cheered their opponents. ...
