GIPSIES' STRIKE COPPERSMITHS DISSATISFIED. The latest strike is that of perform ing gipsies.

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE A little group ot a dozen professional animal trainers had a front seat 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 Cunninghame-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-raisipg in seeing an elephant standing on Its 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 Lind-af-Hageby, Archdeacon Wilberforce, Lord M'orley, Mr Percy lllingworth, M.P., and Jlr Bernard Shaw. Mr John Galsworthy said he had a eommonsense which told him that wild animals were Jiappier in freedom than in captivity, and tha...

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914

TIII2 STREET CLEANER A paper having said that "To recog nise tho supremacy of tlie street cleaner would lie to usher in tlio reign of chaos," "The Dally Herald" takes it to task and says:—"Now, that just 1.ring's us very close to tho root of the matter. 'Supremacy' Is Indeed the wrong word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want Mipremary. 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 n 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." " When Tommy arrived home from school the other morning U. was evident that ho had had something hard to face besides his lessons.

It is gratifying to note that a small credit balance remains to start the incoming year with, and the committee are to be congratulated thereon, more es pecially in view of the special ex penditure involved in making the building attractive by renovating and painting it at a cost of over .•£25.

KISSES FOR CARPENTIER [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 March 1914

KISSES FOR CARPENTIER The younger (feneration of France, the new race which is turning France into one of the keenest sporting coun tries in the world (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Mail," De cember 12), thronged the Gare du Nord to the number of many thou sands to-night to welcome home young Carpenlier from his great triumph in London. Hundreds of men had tears of emo tion running down their faces, and when at last they got to their hero everyone who could kissed his cheek or hand. He was often lost to sight for long seconds under this human Hood of friends and admirers, while those who could not reach him shrieked "Vive Carpentier!" until their voices failed. The police were rushed and flung aside, and Carpentier, smiling, but pale with emotion, was carried shoul der high. Eventually the crowd thinned out and Carpentier was able to drive away. Tho train in which Cnrpentier trav elled was half an hour late, having been delayed by the demonstrations of Treleom* t« him ...

CLEMENTS TONIC LTD., f " Your tonic is one of the quickest nerve and brain cures known. I tried all kinds of doctors' medicines, and got no relief as I have from your tonic. I could not stand anyone talking to me, or the noise of the town traffic. I lost appetite and weight. I was that weak at times a child could push me over. I had to give tip work. I lay hour after hour awake, now I can (jo to bed and almost sleep at once. Sly case was one of the worst I ever heard of. I thought I would never get well. I cas hardly believe the relief I have got from Clements Tonic. Nearly all those symptoms I told you of have left me, and two or three more bottles will make mc strong.

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. Notwithstanding tho 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 26. "Now and again a very old man attributes his length of days to his abstemiousness. He has never smoked or consumed alcohol, and he has been stringently abstem ious with regard to solid food. "But then another centenarian tells us that he has eaten and drunk heart ily all his life and never denied him self any pleasure. People practise ail 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.
