MR CHAMBERLAIN AN IMPERIAL STATESMAN. (By N. Slurrell Harris, in "The Daily Express.") The retirement of Mr Chamberlain at the next general election from West Birmingham will mean that Birming ham working men have lost a personal friend. Not only in liis own constitu ency is lie regarded as "our member,' but throughout the city. Ho learned his political alphabet "alongside working men from those early times when he started a debating club for tho men in his own works, and was a constant attendant at the debates at Smetliwick, profiting by the criticisms of his own workmen. There was also the wonderful day's outing at the Crystal Palace in 1S74 which lie gave to his workpeople when he retired from business. One of his staff told the writer that on coming to the sta tion after the special had started lie found one poor woman who had been left behind in tears, and he took her up himself to the Palace. Before ho became member he learned the wants of the people in their daily lives, lie ...

TRUE BLUE CATS WOMEN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

TRUE BLUE CATS WOMEN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. The triumph ol' tile true blue, of the real blue blood, was the distinguishing mark of the two clays' cat show opened yesterday at the Horticultural Hall, Westminster (says "The Daily Mail" of January 9). It was the biggest show of cats ever held, and the blues were the biggest class. The blue cat was "invented" just thirty years ago by Miss Simpson ana is a monument to the peculiar skill of women as fanciers^ The blue was "created" marvellously out of a com bination of black and white. At first the blues were also tabbies, but now these skilful women fanciers have got rid of all tabby markings, and the blood Is so blue that a blue cat always pro duces a blue, though now and again a little black blood is allowed. And very beautiful the blues are, ><s well as true. : CATS WITHOUT A FLAW. | The judges, a majority of them ' women, wso posed the cats successively cn a green baize card-table and searched for both flaws and Takings, cou...

FOG EXPERIENCE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

FOG EXPERIENCE AT SEA. (By Frederick Niven, in the "Dally News and Leader"). Firstly, you must have confidence in the captain. Secondly, you must allow the fatalist in you to speak a quiet word—and then the fog becomes a rich experience. Under the bridge, on the upper deck, is perhaps the best place to enjoy it. Prom that vantage, peer ing down, you can just make out, in the very bows, two look-out men, cran ing forward, muffled, hands deep in coat pockets, motionless, staring into the nipping grey vapor. They look like a new kind of figurehead. Up in the fore erosstrees, in the look-out barrel are two heads dimly seen, one on each side of the mast, each in the attitude of a short-sighted man peering into U small-print time-table; on a wall. Step out from under the bridge and look up at It. The captain is canted against the front, coat-collar up, chin sticking out over the canvas dodger;.; at either end are sailors in the same at titude. Beside the little turret-like J wheel-house i...

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. By Douglas B. Armstrong, in "The Dally Express.") The beginning of a year is, appro priately enough, a favorite time tor the issue of new postage stamps the world over, and a very considerable propor tion of the postal Issue of the past have made their debut on January 1. The New Year of l'J14 is likewise des tined to bring: In its train some not able additions lo the pages of the stamp album, although from a variety of causes it seems improbable that the new postage stamps issued during the year will be anything like equal to the somewhat abnormal output o£ 1013. This supposition is based on the fact that within the past twelve months the issue of Georgian postage stamps, in place of those bearing the likeness of King Edward VII., by the British do minions beyond the seas has been prac tically completed, and most of the Por tuguese and many of the French colo nies have been provided with new stamps, while countries like Japan, China, Denmark, ...
