ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 March 1914
r ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") iVr. France has been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he inust hav$ smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would he be. any- • thing- so solerrm, or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise kof essays, but he has never wilfully indited ct work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of hooks and authors, and about them, or around them: for he has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. Out he never meant to write on books of authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of nil longing • to express or realise anyone or any- • thing in art—save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. "LITERARY GLOHE-TROTTING In brief, M. France is a ...

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, •Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," chapter' x. A New Mission. Ronald Ilalldare had seen Gwendo len strolling towards the river, across the illuminated lawns of Lady Emil ia's grounds, the man he believed to be Lord -Montamor, his supplanter. at her side. It was impossible, although he iionestly believed Charles Daur.ce to have been merely the Australian alias of his long-lost cousin Robert, not to he on tenterhooks as to Gwen dolen's opinion after she had hid g. 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 j ,, _v._o.f■ the.sujvppsed .Robort.. .Sopyht nras he was hovering-aibout .tb?. tents', the pair must pass to return to the ehr I closed lawn where the' dance...

- DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE One of the loveliest stretches of English scenery within range of Lon don is being robbed of both its beauty anil use with such speed and certainty that local feeling Is coming to a pitch of liigh irritation and private pro tests are being made (writes the spe cial correspondent of "The Daily Mail"). The question is much more than local. By the deliberate choice of a now landlord (1) Some land which produced food, both corn and milk, is put out of cul tivation, is.'from a national point of view made barren. (2) A famous beuuty spot is de prived of its native charm and with drawn from the use of the neighbors and a wider public who delighted to walk there.

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE A lilLle group of a dozen professional animal trainers had a front seat at a public meeting last night at the Ken sington Town Hall (reports "The Daily News" of December 1G). The meeting was called to protest against cruelties to performing animals. The trainers' spokesmen wpre "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-raising 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-Hngeby, Archdeacon Wiiberforce, Lord M'orley, Mr Percy lllingworth, M.P., and . Mr Bernard Shaw. Mr John Galsworthy said he had a: commcmsensc which told him that wild animals were happier in freedom than in captivity, and t...

STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFERERS UNABLE TO GET RELIEF Some thousands of patients with toothache,.who as usual went for re lief to tho dental hospitals attached to the greater German universities this morning (stated the Berlin corres pondent of "The Daily News" Decem ber 13) had to be turned away, for tho dental students throughout Ger many went on. strike, and tho only people left in attendance were the lecturers and their chief assistants, who were quite unable to handle the large number of patients. "»!ie students' strike has been caused by the refusal of the university author ities to grant the title of doctor of dentistry. The only way a student at tho Dental High School can obtain a degree is by subsequently taking a I philosophy course, which means an extra two years after he has passed the State examination in dentistry. This examination, which does not confer tho degree itself, involves ten terms | of study, as against the six which suf fice to give a degree in other subjects. ...

No. 6 Post Office Place, South Melb., 2/7/11. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD.. T " Your tonic u one of the quickest nerve and brain cures knswn. I tried all kinds of doctors' medicines, and got no relief as I hare from your tonic. I could not stand anyone talking to me, or the noise of the town traffic. I lost appetite and weight.

COItllYDlIAl'. PUBLIC LIBRARY. Elsewhere appears the balance sheet of the CorinUhap Public Library, and which, taking the state ment from every point of view, is highly satisfactory. 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 paintiDg it at a coBt of over £25. The secretary and treasurer, as well as the committee, had carried out their duties gratuitously in order to make every penny received go as far as poBBible towards the improve ment of a now more popular than ever public library.
