COURT IN TEARS TOUCHING APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914

COURT IN TEARS TOUCHING APPEAL^ With the whole court, including tho jury, counsel, and the prisoner in tears. Mme. Poeckes was yesterday acquitted of the murder of her husband, whom she was accused of having: shot (writes the "Paris correspondent of the "Daily Mail" of December 1). Her counsel made an impassioned speech. He de fended lier from the charge of cynical indifference. She was frozen with grief, he declared. "There are some flowers," he added, "which open only at twilight, but they are none the less sweet for that." -Depicting the grief which would have afflicted the dead man had he known that his wife would be charged with his death and the shame which would be the heritage of the prisoner's two young children were she condemned, he concluded with the words, "I beg for mercy in the name of the two babes— mercy in. the name of the cradle." This stirring harangue successfully swayed the minds of the jury.

DOCTOR AND LAW REMARKS BY JURY Strong remarks on the conduct of an Exeter doctor were ma.de yesterday by jurymen at an inquest on a man named Thomas Humphreys, who died from col lapse after eating indigestible food (says the "Daily News'' of November 14). Humphreys's son said he went to fetch Dr. Black on Wednesday morn ing. He told the servant to tell Dr. Black that his father was very JII, and that his mother would pay him when he came. The servant, ho said, re turned and asked if the father was in sured. Being told that he was, he again returned and said: "The doctor says if your father is insured you must not disturb him again." Humphreys then fetched Dr. Atkins, but when he arrived his father was dead. Mr M. Browning (a juror): Don't you think Dr. Black was out of order In re fusing to attend a case of life etnd death? The Coroner: We have not Dr. Black here, but the law is that a doctor is not bound to go. But we may think what we like about a doctor who refuses to attend when...

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. Has anyone ever seen an officer In uniform going in or out of the "War Office (except on the occasion of a roynl function in London), or a Household Cavalry man walking about the streecs in his " war paint?" If any of the major-generals employ ed at the War Office ventured to go to work there one day in any kind of uni form. the odds are that the "War Office doctor would be sent round to see whe ther anything had happened to the poor man's brains. It is not like that in France or Ger many. If you visit a friend in the French War Office, you will find him up to tho chin in uniform as he sits behind his desk. All the officers in the place are in uniform. It is the same in Borlin. In our own "War Office (says the "Daily Express") no officer wears uni form, and it is doubtful whether the colonel of the Guards regiment In Lon don puts his uniform on once a mon.h. He is in his office every day, but lie wears his own private clothes, and the only occasion...

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. The precautions against train wreck? set forth by Major Prlngle In his re port on the Alsgill catastrophe, and his suggestions for minimising loss of life In any future accident, were ensured in advance of careful and critical public examination. Mr J. F. Gairns, of tho "Railway Magazine," said yesterday (says the "Daily News" of November 27) that there was a growing tendency to use steel underframes, and a considerable proportion of tho rolling stock of the important British railways was already so fitted. Shock absorbing buffers were already used on the District to some extont, and were receiving tho attention of railway managers throughout the country. In America they were in much more general use, and further Introduc tion here is probable. Of course, he said, the force of a col lision has to be distributed somehow. If the carriages mount the frame the superstructure takes the force, but if the frame Itself has to stand all the shock, the effects ...
