BIRD WORSHIPPERS DISCOVERIES AMONG AFRICAN TRIBES [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 February 1914

BIRD WORSHIPPERS DISCOVERIES AMONG AFRICAN* TRIBES Mr P. Amaury Talbot, a district Commissioner in Southern Nigeria, and his wife have just made a remark able Journey of over 4,300 miles in the Eket district, a country of rivers and creeks, many unexplored, with a popu I lation of a quarter of million Iblbios (says "The Daily Express"). In an interview with Router's repre sentative, Mr Talbot says he found : customs and ceremonies which appear i to have come down unchanged from I the days of the Pharaohs. In some I parts the dead are roughly mummified, ' I while underground burial chambers are to bo found planned like those of 1 ; ancient Egypt. He found also traces : of bird worship and witnessed a bird dance never before seen by Europeans. Most of tho towns have their sacred pool, inhabited by good or evil spirits, to which in the past countless human victims were sacrificed. On two of these holy waters-the Lake of Life and the neighboring Pool of Hatred and Death-Mr Talbot and Mr...

MAGIC AND TRADE At the Japan Society last evening Dr. W. L. lllldburgh,, a member of the council. re;ul a paper entitled "Japanese Popular Maple connected with Agriculture and Trade (says the "Dally Telegraph" of December 11). Mr Henri L. Joly presided, and there was a large and appreciative gather' ing of members of the society. Dr. lllldburgh 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 fire and thieves. I With an incantation rods or skewers were planted in tho ground for tho protection of the property and to draw destruction down upon any body who should attempt to take wrongful possession of it. A charm written on a piece of paper where a wild animal might pass was con sidered likely to turn Into a piece of string and catch the animal.

ZOO CUBS [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 6 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 hears, were presented-for the seventh year in succession-with two babies on Friday last, but have lost them as usual. This year the ofllelals 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 first 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 cubs were rescued at birth and put Into a warm basket with hot water bottles. A lady who has much skill...

They had every reason to be satis fled, said the chairman, with tho 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, Tho position of the associa tion in that work reminded him of tho ordinary broker. There were any number of enterprises which needed energy to make them succeed, and there was a largo number of men and | women anxious to do something for I their fellow men and women; but until I that association came into existence they could never bring them Into relationship.

TAXI CAB FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 6 March 1914

T4XKAB IN FRANCE I DRIVERS ARB DARING. The Parisian taxi driver Is a pecu liar Individual, says "Tho Motor." While ho bears the car-marks of his brothren In other great citios, ho has many characteristics all his own. Ho can bo as ferocious as an Apache or ae docile as a lamb-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 tho way. Tho pilot of tho Parisian cab pos sesses a fund of goneral information, providing you speak his language and have silvered his palm. Ho knows no- , thing If you are a stranger and have neglected to "come across." Ho is as garrulous as a politician or as dumb as an oyster ; it dopends on the way you treat him.

LOOP THE3LOOP MEMBERS OP PARLIAMENT M. Leon Glrod was the llrnt mem ber of Parliament to "loop the loop" In an aeroplane (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Dally Chronicle" on December 17). He accompanied Pegoud as passen ger in a Uight, in which the airman effected a scries of six complete som ersaults. Describing his impressions, M. Glrod said the most sensational moment Is when the machine, having readied the summit of the circle, begins its descent. "Then," he added, "the rush down wards is frightful. My toes gripped the bar rests as though they were fingers. Being now head downwards my shoulders seemed to try to hurst through the straps which bound inc.

The Great iYlontarnor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hoarte," CHAPTER X. A New Mission. Ronald Halldare had seefci Gwendo len strolling towards the river, across the illuminated lawns of Lady Emil ia's grounds, the man he believed to bo Lord Montamor, his supplantcr, at her side. It was impossible, although ho honestly believed Charles Daunce to have been merely the Australian alias of his long-lost cousin Robert, not to be on tenterhooks as to Gwen dolen's opinion after she had had r. 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 lurking 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 ho was hovering about the tents, the pair must pass to return to the en closed lawn where the dancors were disporting themse...

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 6 March 1914

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE A little group of a dozen professional animal trainers had a front scat at a public meeting last night at the Ken sington Town Hall (reports "The Dally News" of December 16). The meeting was called to protest against cruelties to performing animals. The trainers' spokesmen were "Captain" Woodward, who trains dogs. Mr Cunnlnghame-Graham, who pre-' sided over the early part of the meet ing, declared that exhibitions of per forming animals were debasing alike for the trainer and for the public. There was nothing exhilarating or soul-raising In seeing an elephant standing on Us head, or dogs and cats firing cannon. He urged people to attend such shows and hiss. Sometimes hissing was a sacred duty. Messages of sympathy were read from Miss Llnd-af-Ilageby, Archdeacon Wilherforee, Lord Mtorley, Mr Percy Illingworth, M.P.; and Mr Bernard Sliaw. Mr John Galsworthy said lie had a commonsenso which told him that wild animals were happier in freedom than in captivity, and t...
