BERMONDSEY CLUB FACTORY GIRLS' MENU [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 28 February 1914
BERMONDSEY CLUB j FACTORY GIRLS' MENU Lying close to the river on its .southern bank, and immediately to the east of London Bridge, is a dis trict to which half a century has brought great changes. Many of its streets are still wide and of pleasing aspect. . Many of its houses are the plain, substantial, red brick homes to which the "comfortable" city man used to retire after his day's \vo2rk, with gar dens in which he grew his roses and his chrysanthemums. Bermondsey was a pleasant suburb when the world was not very much younger; and any effort that can be made to dissipate, however slightly, the gloom that has settled over it now deserves to bo encouraged. Nowadays Bermondsey, with great wharves and a busy railway to bring it into touch with the outer world, has lost its old repose. Even the leather workers, who were the busiest of its people in the daytime not long ago, | are few in numbers now; and big fac- j torics have sprung up that have i gathered around them a big factory I...

REVOLUTION GRANDMOTHER DISGUISE AS A MAN [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 28 February 1914
REVOLUTION GRANDMOTHER DISGUISE AS A MAN Mine. Catherine Breshkovskayu, who for forty years has been a lead ing spirit among the Russian revo lutionaries, lias made a during hut un successful attempt to escape from Siberia, wliero she has been in exile since 11110 (says the St. Petersburg correspondent of "The Daily Mail," December 11). Mme. Breshkovskaya, who is aged about seventy, has been living at Kl rensk (in the south-east of Siberia). On Monday last week she went to din ner at the lodging of another exile named Vladimir. She was seen to come out, leaning on Vladimir's arm. She went to bed at her own lodging, saying she was feeling ill. . On Thursday morning the police dis covered that she had escaped, together with an invalid man. On Saturday the district inspector stopped two rar utsk (in Eastern Siberia, about S00 riages thai, had nearly reached Yak miles from Rirensk). In one of the i carriages was Mme. Breshkovskaya, disguised as a man. Mme. Breshkovskaya was known as the...
VALUE OF SERVICES [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 28 February 1914
VALUE OF SERVICES I Charles .S. Mollen, until recently President of the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railway, and one 'of America's representative cap - tains of industry, has (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Ex press") caused much indignation among the high-salaried executives of the United States by declaring that no man's services to a corporation are worth more than £5000 a year, which is ten times the amount once fixed by Mr. John Burns. Mr. Mellen's own salary, as head of the" Great New England Railway Corporation, was several times that amount, but ho confesses he would have worked just as hard for £5000 a year as lie did for the larger sum. Mr. Mellen's argument is that who ever is capable of earning £5000 a year must show capacity equal to the task of directing any enterprise what ever. Nobody drawing more than Mr. Mellen's stipulated maximum has been found who is willing to second his views. President ICingsley, of the New York Life Insurance Company, de...
ZOO CUBS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914
ZOO CUBS The London Zoo has little luck with its youngsters "born In the gardens" (says the "Daily News" of November 3). Sam and Barbara, the Polar bears, were presented—for the seventh year In succession—with two babies on Friday last, but have lost them as usual. This year the officials determined that the youngsters should not bo left to their father's large and casual feet, nor to their callous mother. She is worse than the father, by far. The iirst cub to these unnatural parents was born in 1907. The father killed it. Since then the youngsters have died each year within a few days of birth. This year preparations were made to give the cubs every chance. Like all bear babies, they are remark ably small, no larger than dog pup pies, in fact. Barbara's Polar idea is that what her children want is plenty of cold open air and wet concrete, and she gives it to them. Last Friday the I cubs were rescued at birth and put into a warm basket with hot water bottles. A lady who has much ski...
PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914
PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER j ne marquis 01 Salisbury, wno pre- 1 sided last evening' at the annual meet | ing of the Personal Service Associa- ! tion (says tho "Westminster Gazette" of December 12), hold at the Portman Rooms, apologised for tho absence of ! Mrs. Asquith, his colleague in tho presidency, who was absent for the first time from the annual gathering of tho association. They had every reason to be satis fied, said the chairman, with the work of the year. They had planted that I plant, and it was flourishing—not by any great growth, but by a steady growth which belongs to things that succeed. Tho position of tho associa 1 tion in that work reminded him of tho ordinary broker. There were any number of enterprises which needed energy to make them succeed, and I there was a largo number of men and women anxious to do something for their fellow men and women: but until that association camo into existence they could never bring them into relationship.

TAXI-CAB IN FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. j The Parisian taxi driver is a pecu S5f,i,n?lvlduaI' sa>'s "The Motor." ^}i6 bears the ear-marks of his brethren in othor great citios, he has many characteristics all his own. He can be as ferocious as an Apache or as docile as a Iamb—according to his mood, but always ho is a dare devil, taking chances at which an auto mobile race-driver would falter. Upon entering a French taxicab, you usually reach your destination safely, but have many a thrill on the way.

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914
ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor SI. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") i France has been hailed among* us j as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. F*or he is not, nor would lie be, any i .so or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or miction in the guise of esynys, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and autnors, and about them, or around them; for he has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or realise anyone or any thing in art—save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITE RARY GLOBE-TIK >TTING In brief, M. Prance is a pure egotist, an i...

STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFERERS UNABLE TO GET RELIEF [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914
STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFERERS UNABLE TO GET RELIEF . Some thousands of patients with toothache, who .is usual went for re lief to the dental hospitals attached to the greater German universities this morning (stated the Berlin corres pondent of "The Daily News" Decem ber 13) had to be turned away, for tho dental students throughout Ger many went on strike, and tho only people left in attendance were the lecturers and their chief assistants, who were quite unable to handle the large number of .patients. 'the students' strike has been caused by the refusal of the university author ities to grant the title of doctor of dentistry. The only way a student at tho Dental I-Iigh School can Obtain a degree is by subsequently taking a p.hilosophy course, which means an extr.a two years after he has passed the State examination in dentistry. This examination, which does not confer tho degree itself, involves ten terms of study, as against the six which suf fice to give a degree in other subjects...

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. D1EHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER X. A New Mission. Ronald Halldare had soon Gwendo len strolling towards tlie river, across the illuminated lawns of Lady Emil ia's grounds, the man he believed to . be Lord Montamor, his supplanter. at her side. It was impossible, although he honestly believed Charles Daur.ee to have been merely tho Australian alias of his long-lost cousin Robert, not to be on tenterhooks as to Gwen dolen's opinion after she had had a private interview with the claimant. He hardly knew himself whether, un derlying his, as he considered it, un alterable opinion, that the bearded stranger was the real man and no other, there was not a 1'irking hope to be convinced of the contrary by a succession of undeniable facts, such as Gwendolen's absolute repudiation of the supposed Robert. So when, as he was hovering aibout the tents, the ! pair must pass to return to the en closed lawn where the dancers were disporting them...
