IMPARTIALITY A CANDID RELATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

IMPARTIALITY A CANDID RELATIVE. By W". Pett Ridge, In the "Westmin ster Gazette."). "So thankful to find you at home," cried the flustered young woman. "Been wondering all the way from Shep herd's Bush, 'Supposing Aunt Bertha isn't in, whatever shall I do?' Really, if you had happened to be out, I'd have made no more ado about it. but I should have gone straight down to the river. It's a positive fact, I assure you. Why," plaintively, "what else could I have done?" "The weather's very trying," said the aunt. "Weather?" echoed tho visitor, with J bitterness. "Well for me if I'd noth ing- worse than that to complain about." They went into the front room, where the aunt opened a window, brought forward an easy chair. The other de clined to sit down, and walked to and fro as well as the thick forest of fur niture permitted, twisting white gloves, -and frowning at her reflection when she passed by a small mirror. The aunt spoke of one or two local engage ments arranged between parties in...

STORM IN THE KENMARE DISTRICT [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

STORM IN THE KENMARE DISTRICT (from our kenmare correspondent) A terrific thunderstorm swept ever the district on Sunday evening, the flashes of lightning being very vivid, whilst wind, hail and heavy rain followed. The official rain gauge registered 138 points; at Mr. -James Allan's .186 points were recorded; and 110 points at Mr. Albert P.'Allan's homestead.. The storm was exceptionally violent at Beulah, where 275 jjoinls fell; Thome's coffee palace was partially unroofed, and .many of the residences were swamped 'owing to the spouting being unable to cope with the heavy volume of . water. The several church services had to be abandoned in the evening owing to the buildings being surrounded by watei'. The severity of the wind at AVheatlands may be gauged from the fact that the school shelter shed ,vas wrecked. . - Wheat cartiug wa's delayed pwing to the visitation, but on the other hand where water was becoming scarce the dams have been filled to overflowing.

SENSATIONAL EXPERIENCES A CLOSE CALL TWO PERSONS AFFECTED BY LIGHTNING [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

SEKSATI88AL EXPERIENCES A CLOSE CALL TWO PERSONS AFFECTED BY LIGHTNING During the progess of the thunderstorm at Nypo on Sund.ay, the inmates of Mr. F. Schumann's residence had a most unusual and thrilling experience. Clouds of blinding dust swept over the settlement, obscuring the light, and creating partial darkness. The vivid" flashes of lightning were rapidly followed by deafening peals of thunder, winch shook the buildings to their foundations. The doors were open at Mr. Schumann's homestead and his wife, -whilst passing along the passage came into contact with the electric fluid, which caused her to collapse and fall to the floor. Assistance was quickly at hand, and she was hastily removed to another part of the building. 'Restoratives' were administered, and after a period of a couple of hours Mrs. Schumann gradually recovered, but she felt the effects of the shock for some considerable time afterwards. A carrier named W. Stewart, who was camped cfli ■-the Albacutya road, som...

Y AAPEET & IIOPEVALE DISTRICTS NAVVIES' CAMP DEVASTATED. On Sun Jay afternoon a, wind and rain storm swept over the district north-east of Rainbow,, about five ' "o'clock.

SALVE OF SLEEP [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

SALVE OF SLEEP Joy, Temperance, and Repose Slam the door on the doctor's nose. This old saying was quoted with ap proval by Professor "William Stirling, of Manchester—described by Sir James Crichton Browne as "the most brilliant exponent of modern physio logy"—in a lecture at the Barnes Hall of the Royal Society of Medicine, Wimpole street, W., last evening (re ports tho "Daily News" of November 28). Muscular fatigue, said the Profes sor, gradually used up the chemical reserves upon which our movements depended, and, in addition, poisonous by-products were formed which often remained to clog the machine and to act as toxins. Severe bodily exercise, he declared, was incompatible with full digestive activity. "After dinner rest awhile" was part of the proverbial wisdom of Salerno. Mental fatigue greatly im paired bodily activity, and physical or muscular disease had a distinct effect * on brain activity. The too ardent but untrained Alpine climber, the enthusiastic but unseas oned gym...

STORY OF IiORD DUNEDIN | Among the stories going the rounds at the moment concerning Lord Dune> din is one which tells how he oncf incurred judicial censure (says the "Westminster Gazette"). In the days when he acted as junior counsel he chanced to be voicing the interests ol a client in the Second Division of the Court of Session, Edinburgh, and, ap parently finding his arguments lets persuasive than he could have wished, he requested their lordships to imagine for the moment that they were navvies, and to look at the question from the workers' standpoint. Thereupon Lord Moncrleff, who then acted as Lord Jus tice-Clerk, informed the audacious, advocate that "the invitation was one quite unsulted to the dignity of the Court."

OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER A sensation has been caused in naval circles by the disappearance of Fleet Paymaster John Moffat Lowry from H.M.S. Ganges, which is stationed at Harwich (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). A large sum of Government money, believed to bo between £10,000 and £15,000, has also disappeared, and the missing naval officer is "wanted" in connection with the matter by Scotland Yard. The mystery is being investigated by a senior detective inspector, but as the keys of the safe have also disappeared, difficulty has been ex perienced in ascertaining the exact sum missing. Fleet Paymaster John Lowry is de scribed in the "Navy List" as an ad ditional officer of the Shotley Train ing Establishment. He is fifty-three years of age, 5ft. Sin. in height, and fresh complexioned, his eyes and moustache being grey. He is corpu lent, and has a swinging walk.
