ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914
ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. Anxiety for- the safety of Captain Bartlett and his party, who are adrift in the Polar pack ice, separated from Mr Stefqnsson, who is on the mainland, is greatly stimulated because it is" known by his intimates that Bartlett's ship, the Karluk, was worn out and condemned as a whaler before the ex pedition started (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Tele graph," December 11). This statement will be questioned probably, but I have seen a letter to-day penned by Cap tain Bartlett himself, and never hither to published, severely indicting the old craft, and gravely questioning her fit ness for the work in hand. Writing from Nome. Alaska, to. "The Daily Telegraph's" informant at New York, Captain Bartlett, who is a British subject, and was captain for' Peary on his successful trip to the North Pole, says: "I only wish we had the Roosevelt (Peary's old ship). Then we could do something. This boat, the Karluk, is a poor 'tooth.' She has no stren...

GARDENER WANTED QUALIFICATION CONSIDERED [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914
GARDENER WANTED [ QUALIFICATION CONSIDERED A few days ago I saw a very attrac tive advertisement in "The Church Times," and I reproduce it so that my readers may join in the wild rush that is sure to follow so tempting an offer (writes S.L.H., in "The Daily News' ) WANTED, .GARDENER, gentleman by birth and education. No salary. Board and lodging in re^urn' Must do own room. Steady. Age under 30. Excellent reference.?. In order to prevent disappoint I think the advertiser should explain clearly all that is meant by the phrase "gemle- &lt; man by birth and education," as some applicants for this remarkably good thing might be able to pass the test in regard to gentle birth and then fail owing to insufficient education. On the other hand, a man might have know ledge and skill in all learning and wis dom, and yet be merely the deplorable product of the lower middle-classes. Let us, therefore, try to discover the meaning of the phrase "a gentleman by birth." Selden, in his "Title...

DR. MONTESSORI IN AMERICA [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914
Dli. MONTESSORI IX AMERICA Di\ Maria Montessori, who has given her name to the new system for educating children, is at present in America (says "The Westminster Gazette" of January 2). She is no doubt pleased to find that there are nearly one hundred schools that have adopted the Montessori method in the United States, and that many pupil teachers have learnt her system. She lays particular stress on the physical improvement that comes from her me thod. Speaking; of the Casa dei Bam bini at Rome, she says:—"The most marvellous discovery was the physical improvement of these little children. Now. we never served food in the school. The little ones, all of whom live in their own homes, have half an hour's recess for luncheon, which they take at home. Not a single child in the school was given medicine; there was 110 change of diet, but in almost every case a new vigor and health was shown by blood supply, weight, and stature. They looked like the children of wealthy parents living in...

i NORTHERN SCULPTOR I DEVELOPMENT OF GENIUS The works of one of the greatest Scandinavian sculptors is still almost unrecognised in this country, says John Rivers in the "World's "Work." Stephan Sinding is not a young man. Mis life's work is behind him. He is famous in Scandinavia, in Gennnay, and in France, and waits only to b:> appreciated by the English-speaking world. ..Born in 1S4G, he has already celebrated his sixty-seventh birthday. His native place is Drontheim, on th-"s north coast of Norway. ; It was at the age of twenty-six— when most young artists have already mastered the technique of their art and are already well on the road to suc ! cess or failure—that his eyes were first opened to the great gift nature had bestowed upon him. For a short time he worked in his father's house, but. finding little or no facilities for studying in his native country, he went in 1S71 to Berlin, where he was received as a pupil into the studio of Professor Albert Wolff— the only maste...

THROUGH THE TELESCOPE [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914
THROUGH THE TELESCOPE A learned professor, with nine letters . after his name has become a small boys' hero (says "The Daily Mail," of December 31). Professor H. H. Turner, D.Sc.,. D.C.L., F.R.S., Savilian Professor of Astronomy in the Unversity of Oxford, who yester day delivered his second lecture at the Royal Institution, London, his caught the imagination of the small boy like a Jules Verne or a Stevenson. He has overcome the firmly rooted conviction of the young that all real professors must be dry, elderly, and grim, and that a lectux-e is a dull sort of thing. Professor .Turner possesses the geni ality of a benevolent uncle. He under stands just what appeals to small boys and disguises his science in a delightful "make up." Yesterday ' he was sur rounded by balloons, aeroplanes, kites, telescopes, and continuing his subject, "A Voyage in Space," he took his audi ence up towards the moon, which is 240,000 miles away. •' But how do-we know the moon is this distance from the ear...

CIGARETTE SMOKING A MENTAL DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914
CIGARETTE SMOKING | •J' A MENTAL. DRUG. A few days ago I was having an argument, in which the question of the cigarette habit arose. For a while the' pleasures'' arid harm of such smoking were discussed, and then one said, "Well, "my-cigarettes are a great com fort to me. I cannot do anything with out them." : And another, an eminent medical , man, answered, "Yes, they are a mild 'drug. Probably they will do you but little harm; but they translate action .-into thoughts of action, and thoughts of action into dreaming!" His words remained in my head ana refused to be ousted. And now, as I ,'sit down to write this, they ,have re turned to me with greater force and clearer import than ever. i So many of us are mental cigarette .fiends! Do you understand what I ,'mean? Not that we actually smoke 'cigarettes, but that so many practise some method or another of "translat ing action into thoughts of action, and thoughts, of action into dreams," and •of finding a comfort—a drugged, un healt...

DOMINIONS FLEET I NEW ZEALAND'S SHARE i . (By'F. A. M'JCenzie in the "Daily Mail."). The New Zealand, the Dreadnought presented by the southern Dominion to the navy, has just returned home after a triumphant journey round the Empire. Everywhere, from Santiago to Sydney and from Vancouver to Capo Town, she lias been enthusiastic ally welcomed, and everywhere re garded as a pledge of Imperial unity. Even while she was completing the last miles of her 4.r>,000-mile voyage the land that paid for her adopted a naval policy which makes the gift of Dreadnoughts a thing of the past. Now Zealand this montli determined to come into line with Australia, and, in place of supporting the British Navy by gifts of money or ships, to have a navy of her own. What does this new departure por tend ? Is it a sign of weakening love of Empire? Is it an attempt to escape responsibilities? These are questions which many interested in j the future of our race are asking. [ There is one man in London at pr...
