ENFIELD. BUSH FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 February 1914

ENFIELD. BUSH FIRE. An extensive bush fire has been raging for some days in the Mt. Misery ranges, and on Sunday, be- ing fanned by a strong wind, bnrned rapidly on towards Taylor's Hill, and close to this township. Willing workers turned out in great num- bers, but owing to the density of the bush and the strong wind blow- ing, it was hard to battle with the flames. A quantity of firewood was burned, Mr W. David being a heavy loser. Mr W. Hanson's eucalyptus Still was saved, but he was unfor- tunate in having a dray burned. Towards nightfall the wind changed and became cooler, and the fire practically burned itstlf out. This is the second big fire that has oc-   curred here within a few Weeks.

INTEREST IN THE FILM VARIED USES [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 28 February 1914

INTEREST IN THE FILM I I VARIED USES It is only within the last two years | that the motion picture has been re- i garded in the light of an educational ' factor, and within that tmic extraordinary strides have been made in the direction of the improvement and value of the serious side of the Him industry (says tho "Daily Telegraph" of November 19). Only so recently as Monday last a large gathering of medical men and nurses attended the West-end Cinema in Leicester square, to witness the screening of a number of films 01 scien tific interest and importance. There is no subject which is out of the reach of the cinema, and zoology, botany, chemistry, as well as history and in dustry, are now yielding films of the utmost value and importance. So far as the masses are concerned, the motion-picture may be looked up on as a source of entertainment only, and this being so, the tendehcy to im prove the films that deal with drama, comedy, or subjects of domestic and human interest is one tha...

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY.

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 fills the air.

WOMAN'S HAIR CLUE FUSE ACKOSS A MOAT. Uy means of two mines an attempt was made last evening to blow up tl\e wall of Holloway Gaol (says "The Daily Mail" of December 21), but owing: to the manner in which the mines were laid, little damage was done save that many windows in the neighborhood were smashed by the concussion. "The explosions took place behind Dal meny-avenue, which backs on to the yard wall of the prison. The houses, which are rented at £65 a year, stand in gardens which stretch back at least one hundred feet towards the prison, from ivliich they are separated by a ! dry moat twenty-live l'eet wide. ! It was at the back of the houses num I bered 10 and 12, the lirst being empty ! save for a caretaker and his family, that the explosions took place. Tho tirst was heard a Quarter of a mile away.

GERMAN UNEMPLOYED [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 28 February 1914

GERMAN UNEMPLOYED According to the report of 16 of the larger trade unions, 3 per cent, of their members were unemployed at the end of November, the total being 51,303 (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily News.") This is again a considerable increase compared with October. At 309 public labor exchanges there were 219 male applicants per 300 vacancies, and 139 female. The number of members of the State Insurance Committees pay ins premiums—that is, men -in work decreased by over 30,000 during the month. The s-erious condition of housing in the villages of VVurtemberg is shown by the report of the Stuto housing in spectors for 1911-1912. During the pe riod under review 31,000 dwellings, or 7 per cent, of 'the total accommodation, in 1727 communities were challenged, and declared unfit for human liabita, tion, overcrowding and insanitary con ditions being the chief causes. It is slated that the conditions were much worse in country villages than in towns and cities. Uninhabitab...

BOY'S EXECUTION . MEN MARCH ALL NIGHT. Ernest Kelly, aged 20, one of the two 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 December 18), while 5000 men, women, and youths who had inarched. l'rom Oldham stood outside the prison Bates. "A pluckier little chap never walked to the scaffold. He bore himself brave ly, making neither whimper nor mur mur," Major J. O. Nelson, the prison governor, said. 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 oio of his age has been executed in ling land in modern times. CHEEKS FOR KELLY. The rough-and-ready logic of the plain but honest workers of Oldham could r.ut' understand why one murderer should die while his accomplice was reprieved, and when Mr M'Kenna's refusal to spare the life of Kelly was conv...

Louis Louis XVI. promised to help him to launch them by giving a ban quet at which they were to bo served as an attractive novelty; but tho Royal cook unfortunately misunderstood the instructions given to him. Instead of boiling the tubercles, he 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 taste it.again. Inquiry, however, detected, the error which had been ,a[\d a second experiment brought the new delicacy into high favor.
