Biblical Town Located. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
Biblical Town Located. r Professor Sellin, the excavator of Jericho, has achieved a new tri umph by the location of the Is raelitish city of Shchern, which is associated in the Bible with the naltes of Ablraham, J.iacob, and Joscph, and was the capital of King .Jeroboam. Until lately the site of Shicheni has been a matter of dispute. P'rofessor Sellin' located it Is lying under n low hill at Ba lata. a short distance east of the modern town of Nablus.. Just re cently he had the satisfaction of proving himself to be right. Ex cavationy, carried on partly at the cost of the Vienna Acaderny of Science, revealed great parallel walls in no way inferior to the defences unearthed tby Sellin at Jericho. Both walls end in towers, which are suppoised ? :.to. reprccent the city gates. .Many raliabile hbronze 'and cer~imic :elirs 'were ? Ifound, the de posits dating: from Canannitish up to Greek. times.' The extent of the ruitns proves Shechem to have been a very large city.

Ways of Creating Life. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
Ways of Creating Life. According to Pr.

This leaves no further morn for doubt upon the munch-disputed point whether or not moon-living matter is still capuble of comoming into exist ence. Remrnrahle as it olsi seei, it does not require any large amount of scientific knowledge, or any cost ly labloratory equipment to create life artificially. According to tir.

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT "That Is one of the most wonderful things In London." said a country vlai tor, as he stood near the dell at the end of the Serpentine and watched a man feeding real wild wood-pigeons with grain and peas. Not only (says "The Dally Telegraph") did the pigeons feed about his feet. but presently one of the boldest among them fiuttered up and actually settled on the feeder's wrist, suftering itself there to be gently stroked on the back as it took the food. The countryman stared in undisguised astonishment He knew that out In his own plough-? lands, where the winter-proud wheat is Just now spreading a delicate haze of green over the brown acres, and In the leafless beech woods through which you can see for a quarter of a mile, against the twenty yards that would limit the View in summer, these same pigeons are the most cautious of wild fowl You need the cunning of a Red Indian to get near them in the day time, the patience of a Sioux to way lay them as...

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
PSYCHIC SENSE ILtGIC 1N BUSINESS Is the psycixic sense more developed In Americans than in Englishmen? The question is raised by the follow ing interesting letter by M.B.O. (Hamp stead) to the editor of "The Express": I have seen Mr G. I. Chesterton's play 'Magic." and I am bound to ad mit that it interested and amused me as much as anything I have seen for years. Ne',ertiieless. or perhaps because of that. I have a strong objection to raise. The play deals with a professional con Jurer who, in addition to his trade is well developed on the psychic side, and ale to make a modest use of black maglc. OIf course, the conjurer is in love with a lady. The fly in the oint ment is tile lady's brother, who repre swnts all that is crass, cheeky, ignor ant and latmptioue, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. HIere is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so Im pervious in regard to opiritual matters Is said to be that he has been l...
