INTEREST IN THE FILM l{ VARIED USES II is only within the last two years i tliat the motion picture has been re garded in the light of an educational factor, and within that tmle extraordinary strides have been j made in the direction of the j improvement and value of the serious side of the film industry (says tho "Daily Telegraph" of November 19) Only so recently as Monday last a largo gathering of medical men and nurses attended the West-end Cinema in Leicester square, to witness the screening of a number of films or scien tific interest and importance.

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY.

W. Massingliani in the "Daily News." Spiritual restlessness keeps pace with his physical Instability. A cloud of new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus iasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age nils the air. It is hard to keep men's minds on ends which they really desire: so lon fiiiscd is the intelligence, and so per .tiriied the- conscience, of the directing or tiie enjoying multitude. A certain superficiality and light li'.artedness characterise the philan thropies as well as the self-seeking of our times. Politics are becoming singu larly bitter In their expression and highly organised in their form; hut tne dividing lines of pa...

Ernest Kelly, aged ^u, one 01 tne iwo youthful murderers of an elderly book seller In his shop at Oldham, was exe cuted In Strangeways Prison, Man chester, yesterday morning (reports "The Daily Mail" of Deeember IS), while E000 men, women, and youths who had marched from Oldham stood outside ' the prison gates.

The Home Secretary had reprieved Kelly's accomplice in a murder for rob bery, an eighteen-year-old lad named Edward Hilton, on the ground of his mental deficiency, and because no oie of his age has been executed in Eng land in modern times.

HUMBLE POTATO [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 28 February 1914

HUMBLE POTATO Arrangements are being made in France for the celebration of the one hunclredth anniversary of the death of Parmentier, whose name is insep arably associated with the introduc tion of potatoes as a popular comes tible. Louis Louis XVr. promised to help him to launch them by giving a ban quet at which they were to be served as an attractive novelty; but the Royal cook unfortunately misunderstood the instructions given to him. Instead of boiling the tubercles, ho cooked the leaves as a kind of cabbage. Tho courtiers, after trying every imaginable sort of condiment with the preparation, pronounced the dish de testable, and- declared that no per suasion would induce them ever to tasto it again. Inquiry, however, detectec1 the error which had been made, and a second experiment brought the new delicacy Into high favor.

EXCUSES. People who are made of the right kind of material do not make excu ses;'they work. They do not whine; they keep forging ahead. They do not wait for somebody to help ;hem; they help themselves. They do not wait for an opportunity; they make it. Those who complain of "no chance" confess their weakness—their lack of efficiency.
