BERMONDSEY CLUB FACTORY GIRLS' MENU [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 wo-rk, with gar dens in which lie 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 dissjpate, however slightly, the gloom that lias 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 y 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 tories have sprung up that have gathered around them a big factory ...

HOME RULE [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 28 February 1914

HOME RULE Speaking at a meeting in favor of Home Rule at Alloa last night (says the "Morning Post" of November 22), Mr John Redmond, M.P., said that lie could never have been a Home Ruler for one moment unless Home Rule to his mind meant a free Ireland—free for all creeds, free in all secular and reli gious matters from any spiritual domi nation, either from Rome or any place else. The truth was—and this was the best ot all safeguards, and the history o£ the world showed it—bigotry could not long live in an atmosphere of freedom, and if there was to-day any illegitimate exercise ot political power in Ireland— and for his own part he did not admit it—such illegitimate exercise of politi cal power never could survive the es t&blishment of a free Parliament. Protestants, therefore, might feel se cure, first in the stringent provisions o£ the Bill, then in the spirit of this great Protestant nation, which would be able, at any moment, to stretch out its arm and prevent religious...

VALUE OF SERVICES [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 28 February 1914

VALUE OF SERVICES I Charles S. Mellon, until recently President of tho New York, New Haven, and Hartford Hallway, 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 liigh-salaricd 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 llxed by Mr. John Burns. Mr. Mellen's own salary, as head of the Great New England Hallway Corporation, was several times that amount, but he confesses he would have worked just as hard for £5000 a year as he 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 Kingsley, of the New York Lifo Insurance Company, dc^a...

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 March 1914

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. Notwithstanding the vogue of soured milk; there is really no specific antidote to old age, says a great Lon don physician In the "Daily Mail" of November 2G. "Now and again. a very old man attributes his length of clays to his abstemiousness. Ho has never smoked or consumed alcohol, and he has boon stringently abstem ious with regard to solid food. '"'But then another centenarian tolls us that he has eaten and drunk heart ily all his life and never denied him self any pleasure. People practise all sorts of things, avoiding salt, eat ing cheese, drinking 'milk, drinking nothing but water, eating pounds of grapes or other fruits, living on vege tables or nuts; but so far as a medi cal man can see, and he sees all sorts • and conditions' of men, no particular diet or odd way of living has any in fluence in prolonging life. AVERAGE PEOPLE. "I speak, of course, with regard to average healthy people. Those dis eased in any way must observe cer tain strict rules appro...

MAGIC AND TRADE At tlie Japan Society last evening Dr. W.

Joly presided, and . there was a large and appreciative gather ing of1 members of the society. Dr. Hildburgh detailed the numer ous charms used and customs prac tised by the Japanese in connection with the weather for protecting crops, for securing prosperity in trade, and for obtaining immunity from lire and thieves. | With an incantation rods or skewers were planted in the ground for the protection of the property and to draw destruction down upon any body who should attempt' to take wrongful possession of it.

ZOO CUBS [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 March 1914

ZOO CUBS The London Zoo has little luck with Its youngsters "born In the gardens" (says the -Dally News" of Nbvembcr 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 be 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 often air and wet concrete, and she gives it to them. Last Friday the cubs were rescued at birth and put Into a warm basket with hot water bottles. A lady who has much skil...

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 March 1914

I PERSONAL SERVICE I I . PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER The Marquis of Salisbury, who pre sided last evening at the annual meet ing of the Personal Service Associa tion (says the "Westminster Gazette" of December 12), held at the Port man Rooms, apologised for the absence of Mrs. Asqulth, his colleague in the presidency, who was absent for the first time from the annual gathering of the association. They had every reason to bo satis fled, said the chairman, with the work of the year. They had planted that plant, and It was flourishing—not by any great growth, but by .a steady growth which belongs to things that succeed. The position of the associa tion in that work reminded him of the ordinary broker. There were any number of enterprises which needed energy to make them Succeed, and there was a large number of men and women anxious to do something for their fellow men and women: but until that association came into existence they could never bring them into relationshin.

TAXI=CAB IN FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 March 1914

TAXI=CAB IN FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. The Parisian taxi driver is a pecu liar individual, says "The Motor." While he bears the ear-marks of his brethren in other great cities, he has many characteristics all his own. He can be as ferocious as an Apache or as docile as a lamb—according to his mood, butx always ho is d dare devil, taking chances jit 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 tho way. The pilot of the Parisian cab pos sesses a fund of general information, providing you speak his language and have silvered his palm. He knows no thing if you are a stranger and have neglected to "como across." He is as garrulous as a politician or as dumb as an oyster ; it dopends on the way you treat him. Thero aro no half-baked emotions In his makoup. This particular class of taxi man can come closer to running down a pedes trian or crashing into a vohicle, with out hitting either, ...

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 March 1914

REARING ClllCWffifti MEAL TIME TERRORS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately refuses to "thrive" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Daily News" of December 9). From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or reasons can be assigned. Unfortunately the truth more or less generally remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, handicapped by the fact of not thriv ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the chiiil who does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal, natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree—that is, if we give him a I chance. Hut our methods of cloth ing, feeding, and "managing" our off | spring detract from the health and joy of life of far too many of them in this generation at least.

'Supremacy* is indeed the wrong word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual economy he is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. We lr.ay thus re-state the proposition: 'To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity.'
