STRANGE PET UPSETS AUDIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 9 March 1910

STRANGE PET UPSETS AUDIENCE. . Is a mouse permitted to assist at a performance ir. tho Opera House? was the problem with which the manager of the 'Volks Opor was confronted last night (wired the Vienna correspoivlejit of the 'Daily Telegraph' on January 2).. ?..',.'.'? The statutes of the theatre do nH prohibit mice, in fact they make no allusion to them, and it is on the strength of this fact that, a.vom.an maintained her right to bring her pet white mouse with her.. About ten minutes before the curtain was to rise the woman took her seat in the stalls. Over her shoulders wasthrown a hand some ermine stole which coquettishly ended in a small mouse with a long tail. The owner was toying with the mouse, when suddenly,and to the horror of the women beside her, it dropped on the floor and hid under a seat. A scene of wild confusion ensued1, women shrieking and standing on tbsir chairs, while the men attempted to seize the animal. But the owner appeared quite un perturbed. After request...

THE CHANGING STANDARD OF BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

THE CHANGING STANDARD OF BEAUTY. Whether or not modern women are really losing their power to love, as a well-known lady doctor has recently suggested, is a rather large subject to deal with, but at least it is possible to deny her statement that they are being submerged by a . wave of ugli ness. She maintains that our present strenuous mode of life, our trend of thought, and the tussle for existence in which women are either obliged to take part or in which they elect to en gage for the sake of the independence it offers, all tend to rob them of the personal beauty and graces which once -made girls so attractive in the eyes of the opposite sex. We maintain on our side, says a ladies' journal, that, so far from being ugly, women and children of the pres ent day are singularly good-looking. The number of pretty girls and hand some women to be met in the course of a morning's shopping in a fashion able neighborhood is quite remark able, and in Kensington Gardens, the babies' park, it ...

BIBLICAL LABOR OF THE BENEDICTINES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

BIBLICAL LABOR OF THE BENEDICTINES. It is expected that when the Order of Benedictines .has completed the re vision of the Latin Bible on which it is now working, the Roman Catholic Church will have as accurate a trans lation of the sacred books as is pos sessed by any Christian Church. The task which the Pope set for the revis ers is the recovery, so far as pos sihlA nf th-* T.atin vorsmn mnrio hv Saint Jerome in the third century. Jerome naturally had access to more and better copies of the original Scrip tures than are now in existence. It is assumed that his version must have been better than those translations made at a later time, and better even than those Greek and Hebrew ver sions that have been copied time after time and are full of the errors of the copyists. Thei Latin Bible now in use in the Catholic Church was published in 1593 by Clement the Eighth, after a commission had labored on it for forty years. The new commission of Bene dictines has been at, work about a year...

Strategy. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

Strategy. In an armchair of the express smoking, compartment, a polite but re sourceful man was trying hard to read a novel while his next neighbor kept up a running fire of chatter. With the light of a desperate resolve in his eye, yet cloaking determination with exquisite politeness, the reader presently said: 'Pardon me, but my memory for names is wretched. Your name iB ? 7' 'Shepherd,' replied the voluble one cheerfully. The one-sided conversation kept on a while longer, the light of desperate resolve meanwhile burning brighter and brighter. Then the reader raised his eyes to a stranger, his neighbor across the carriage, and suddenly de manded: 'What is your name, sir?' 'Ward,' said the stranger. 'Yes, yes; of course,' , cried the reader quickly. 'Mr. Ward, let me in troduce Mr. Shepherd.' By this simple but ingenious ex pedient the torrent of extraneous mat ter was diverted to poor Ward, and the reader read happily ever after..

THE MONTE CARLO SHIPWRECK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

THE MONTE CARLO SHIPWRECK. I An officer in the Russian navy, whose name will have to be concealed under the fictitious one of Pulkowski, commanded a second-class battleship shortly before the war with Japan. Cruising at one time in the Mediter ranean to carry out certain investiga tions, he called at the most important ports in Spain, Africa, Greece and Tur key, and having decided to include Ttalv \n hia nnnrflo hfi dronDed all chor at Genoa. From Genoa to Nice is but a step, land Pulkowski' thought he would like to visit the pretty French town, especially as it was then at the height of the season. The pro menades were crowded with pretty English, French, German, and Italian women — a fine cosmopolitan bouquet —so, leaving the ship in charge of the second officer, the' burly RUssian captain, a typical specimen of bluff sailor, set off for Nice. Before he was more than an hour or two in the town- he met a young Russian actress, to whom her had been introduced a year or two before at...

UNBLEMISHED HEIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

UNBLEMISHED HEIGHTS. Sensitive lovers of nature who are perpetually in arms against commer cial vandalism will be relieved to.learn — on the authority of Sir Ray Lankes ter — that the wonderful mountain scenery of Switzerland is practically unaffected by the operations of rail way engineers. Writing in the London 'Daily Tele graph' recently he said: 'These moun tain railways fill me with gratitude and satisfaction. When the Jungfrau railway was first projected, some ath letic Englishmen with heavy boots j and ice-axes protested against the . 'desecration' of regions till then ac- 1 cessible only to them and to me and I others of our age and strength. They declared that the scenery would ? be injured by the railway and its troops of 'tourists.' As well might they pro test against the desecration caused by the crawling of fifty house-flies on the dome of St. Paul's! These mountains and glaciers are so vast and men with their railways so small that the latter are negligible in the pres...

On Sunday the excitable Parisian folk went mad on the news that the water was falling. They trooped in hundreds of thousands to the riverside to. watch the Seine, and turned back full of enthusiasm to consider what might be done for their beloved oity. There was a' fall of two feet by Monday,, and thereafter the subsidence was at the rate of an inch an hour. As the water receded from the streets the appalling havoc wrought by the invasion of the waters became a matter of serious concern. Streets were torn up as though by subterranean erup tions ; houses were tottering, and everywhere was left a deposit of slime and. filth, inspiring the grave...

A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. While making an inspection of the Church of Saint Giulano- Venice, an official of the Commission of Public Works found in a corner of the cam- 1 panile a great roll covered with dust and spiders' webs. The roll was open ed with care, and it was found to con sist of a dozen paintings which had been removed from the church by the leuiui ill J.OOV. Aiiiuiig Lut; yamuugB was one by Tintoret, and some of the others were by Palma the younger. It seems that the rector suffered from a mania for 'beautifying,' and he re moved the pictures to fill their places with slabs of white marble. All the works are fully described in Francesco Sansovino's work on Venice, but the whereabouts of the paintings had for long been a mystery.

STORIES OF THE LATE MR. FRITH [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

STORIES OFTHE LATE MR. FRITH I The first meeting of the late Mr. Frith, R.A., with Thackeray took place at the Deanery Club, in Soho, where the members were spending a con vivial evening. Mr. %Frith has told the story in the following words: — 'Someone called on Thackeray for a song, and he immediately strup.k mi one of his own writing, something about Gorging: Jack and Guzzling Jim my. As soon ? as he had finished, he turned to me— I was very young at the time; it was in 1845 — and said, 'Now then, Frith, you saturnine young academician, sing us a song!' I was struck dumb at this, and. was quite unable to reply. Encouraged by my silence, he attacked me again a little later in the evening. 'I'll tell you what it is, Frith — you had better go home; your aunt is sitting up for you with a big muffin!'' Pictures and titles form the theme of another interesting story. 'Many years ago,' said the famous painter, 'I painted a pretty servant-girl hand ing round the wine, and it was bought by...

LORD BROUGHAM'S SHEPHERD'S PLAID. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

LORD BROUGHAM'S SHEPHERD'S PLAID. The great Lord Brougham, like many of his-fellow countrymen, was rather 'near' and careful about spending money. He was generally dressed in a suit of check of the pattern known, as shepherd's plaid, and about this a curious and amusing story is told. His Lordship visited some Scotch cloth mills, and was much taken with this peculiar pattern of stuff.' He ask ed the manufacturer to send half a dozen pieces to his house, and gave an order on his steward to pay the bill. His intent was to purchase enough to make six lounge suits; not knowing that a 'piece' was the trade name for a 60-yard length. The canny manufacturer hastened to execute the order and to get the cash without delay. When his Lord ship, after a round of visits, arrived home, the steward asked him what he intended to do with 360 yards of cloth. Lord Brougham wrote to the mill owner explaining his mistake, and tried to arrange for the return of some of the cloth; but that knowing person ...
