SUBTLE CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

SUBTLE CRITTCIStM. The smallU boy stood in front of tihe dazzling lighta of the cheap theatre with a yellow dog un der his arm- Evidently he wanted -to .get in, andl the sight of a well dressed. ald apparently prosperous man on the steps gave hinm an idea. "Arc you the manager of the show?" asked the boy. It turned out that he had -guessed cor rectly, and the lad continued: "I want to see the show, but I haven't got no money. I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll give you this dog if you'll let me in." The liianager's heart melted. He remembered that he, too, had been a boy. "You may go in," he said, "but never mind about giving me the dog. Take the dog alopi with you:" The lad went in with the yellow dog under his coat. After the performance the manager was still standing.. in front, and happened to see the. urchin come out. "'Well, sonny," he remarked, "how did you like the show?" "Oh, pretty well," he said, "but I'm. glad I. didn't have to give you the dog."

There is something of the artist in the ways of the gate clammer. He conceals gaiety beneath an exterior of gloom. Watch him one morning at his work. If you laswh. down the stairs alone he .will let you pass, for the baulking of a siigle efideavor is beneath this artist in wholesale irritation.

TRIAL TRIP FROM OCEAN TO OCEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

TRIAL TRIP FROlM OCEAN -TO OCEAN. The correspondent at Panama of the. "New. York Times" says that the small steamer Louise, with many prominent canal officials and 'their 'wives on board, had the.honor on 17th November of being the first boat to pass entirely across the Isthmus of Panama thrrough the Panama Canal. This trip was made possible by the eut ting of a channel through the Cucuracha slide, the last obstruction that has delayed The Collector. the work of connecting the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. Dredges will now complete the work of widenring the channel at this point, and in case of necessity a large ship could be sent from one ocean to the other at very short notice. The little steamboat Louise is a relic of the French enterprise associated with his toric recollections, and the "Figaro" pro poses a public subscription. to enable the French authorities to purcha'se it from the United States, and keep it as. a souvenir. The boat had been sent to Panama more than 25 yea...

THE RIGHT TO FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

THE RIGHT TO FLY. The international aspect of "the right to fly" was discussed by Mr. Roger Wallace, K.C., at a meeting of the Aeronautical Society of Great Britain recently, when several' well-known aviators contributed their opinions. Mfr. Wallace, in pointing out the early exist once of societies interested in the legal side of aeronautis, .stated that one of thees interna tional societies had gone so far into the details of the work as to have drawn up a clause for a proposed code to settle the question of tIe . na tionality of a child horn while on board an air craft. It was curious that this clause was the longest in the whole proposed code. National laws as distinct from internatiohal laws had been promulgated in France, Belgium, Holland and Ger many. Replying to the Englislh representative; of the International Arbitration League, which proposes that aerial warfare shall be banned in the in terests of leace Mr. Wallace - suggested that the advocates of that view might well r...

Both in England and America there has been a great deal of press controversy over the ten players claimed to "rank as the best in the world. In each of these two countries a rank ing list has been prepared and published, and the difference in the respective lists which hlas occassioned the discussion is not so much in the names of the ten best players as in the grading of the players .selected as qualified to be included in the -internat,o,nal roll of lhonur. ihere is, indeed, a remarkable _unanimity in the .ton playivrs, cla.s:fied., the sulbstitution of Roper Barrett for S.

TYPE IN COCKER SPANIELS. THE STANDARD DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

TYPE IN COCKER SPANIELS. THE STANDARD DISCUSSED. Mr. ,R' Claude Cane, a noted English fancier .of Cocker Spaniels, has recently supplied valuable notes on this breed in response to much discussion on the ques tion of type in Cockers. The English press has been teeming with letters on the sub ject. Mr. Cane says:-"Anyone who knew nothing of the breed would imame from the tone of this correspondence that it had fallen on evil days, and was in the last stage of decadence, as is unfortunately the case with some of our old breeds of Eng-. lish dogs. But, on the contrary, never before in their whole history Ihave Cockers been so popular, never so numerous, never so admired eyen by those who prefer to keep other breeds; never were classes at shows and. stakes at. field trials .so well filled. It would appear that there must be something wrong here; either modern taste has hopelessly deteriorated, or the type of the dogsbred nowadays, instead of bemi decadent, has gone on steadily im provin...
