DO1 AND HORSE \NCESTIRAL LINES. l,.,.iit investig:tions into the lake dwIllings of Switzerland have been em 5hdir.l in a book on prehistoric Switzrland bh; a German Professor. The iulportalncl of these dwellings was 'lily r.cognised in 1S54. when a sharp fri"'st o the lake of Zurich caused the +watr to retreat and laid bare the slgns of humanl habitation. The polished stones which were found proved that the lake villages went back to neolithic times, and thie animal remains prove that the dog •land the horse, the pig and the sheep. and the ox and the goat were already dllllmestie animals at that time. The doe is tile most ancient of these ani Ilals. The first species was a cross between the pointer and the beagle, andli for a lollg time there was none other than the spaniel.

Home-loving Celebrities. It is a popular belief that. genius can only develop in "selfish solitude." study of the lives of some of our great est writers and thinkers, however. re veals the fact that much of their btle work was done after marriage, when they enjoyed the conlpationiship iof wives and children. Charles iungslcy, for instance, had an ideal home, awl was never happier than when iplaviil with his children. He gave thern the best of everything, the largest and sunniest rooms in the house. and tim best part of the ga;rden as a play ground. lie was. passion'ately dvoted to children, and their griefs made tirn sad. "A child weeping over a broken toy,": he wrote, "is a sight J cannot bear." Longfellow would not have wrritten "Foosteps of Angels" if he had not llar ried or cried "Cotle to me.o. oh. ,e chil dren !"

NEGLECT OF LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

NEGLECT OF LUCERNE. The value of lucerne as a commulrci al crop appears to be little known on the average North Coast -farm. When one considers the immense area of rich aI luvial lands on the northern rivers that are so admirably adapted to the sum cessful growth of this crop, and th,, enormous quantities of valuable rich fodder. that this perennial is capable of producing, it. is really surprising why so' few farmers make use of it. There is no doubt that the splendid an nual rainfall ensures practically suffi cient feed for general farm purposes from the ordinalr pastures, but evcrv year experience teaches the necesity of doing a little more than to simply rely upon the natural herbage. The past winter has been- a severe one to many dairymen. The heavy rains and floods of last autumn preventet the usual areas of green feed being plant ed for winter and early spring neqd-. and the effect of this upon farms that are well or even overstocked must be apparent to anyone familiar with f...

FRONTIER=MAKING BALKANS DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

FRONTIER=MAKINf BALKANS DIFFICULTIES. Peace of a kind now reigns again in the troubled Balkans. and international boundary commissions are at work pre paring the new maps (says the "Ob server." But the task of delimiting the new frontiers is not proving particularly easy, one of the difficulties being the want of reliable maps of the okl froil tiers.' The old dividing lines look very clear and definite on existing maps, but it is in many places impos sible to reconcile the frontiers of the maps with those recognised in every day practice among the various Balkan nationalities. The method originally adopted for fixing the boundary between Southern Albania and Greece has hopelessly broken down. The. International Commission was instructed to draw the frontier accord ing to a language test, but when the map makers got to work they found that the inhabitants of the region In question speak indiscriminately Greek, Turkish, English. French, Bulgarian, and Albanian. In all probability the ...

SHIRT FRONT ADVERTISINGi By \VAN HI:EALD. Do you ever play that jolly game o.f Pointing out Famous People? asks Ihan 1 Hleald in the "Daily Express" of No vember 25. I mean the game in which you take a country relative along Pic cadilly. and, pointing to casual passers by, say. "That's Lord Howard de WVal den," or "There goes the Duke of B-d ford," and keep it up until the relative is so impressed with your social ommns clence that you can sometimes borrow money from him. If you go in for this kind of thing yourself I want to warn you against a man who is often in Leicester-sqluare these nights. He is a good-looking chap. in faultless evening clothes, and I was just pointing him out to my aunt from Stalybridge last night as the young Earl of Broadacres when he gave the show away by doing something most un-English. He pressed a but ton somewhere, and on his shirt front there aflmed inn letters of light tne words: "Oh, You Kid!" Frivolity Theatre. Matinees Wednesdays. I tried to persu...

RISKY FRENCH FARCE APPEAL TO CENSOR [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

RISKY FRENCH FARCE APPEAL TO CENSOR Mr Jose G. Levy's adaptation of MM. Hennequin and Veber's "'Madame la Presidente" is a centre-board farce. To drop a metaphor which is too whole some and breezy for such a piece as we saw at the Garrick Theatre, "Who's the Lady?" says "1.A.B13." in the "Daily News." is one of the most risky farces yet produced on the London stage. PETTICOA'i' AUDA.\CI'TY There is a scene in " Who's tlhe Lady?" which will be much discussed. A musical comedy actress. Gobette, has called on Cyprien Gaudet. Minister of Justice, and, in tile course of a vio lent flirtation, her flimsy dress falls (purposely or not) from her shoulders. and the lady- is seen itn her petticoats. She then swings herself on to t the knee of the young Minister. When discovered by the usher tlhe musical comedy cocotte flies into an other roomn. ut later she emerges antn flirts with the Minister's lurivate secre tary, who ult mately hides with her in yet another roomn. ani is aifterwaFris grav...
