OBOE PLAYERS GET CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 February 1914

OBOE PLAYERS GET CONSUMPTION. Although of harmless appearance, tlio oboo is tno most deadly musical instru ment in tlio world, fos it literally kills ' thoso who piny upon it. To play an oboo perfectly a musician I must placo tho reed mouthpieco far back in his mouth until it reaches tho gullet, and playing in this fashion is most harmful to tho lungs. After two years of oboe-playing nino out of ten musicians givo up their in strument and learn to play another. If they do not they aro practically certain to develop consumption with fatal re sults. Oboo players command high sal aries, as few of them caro to run so great a~risk.

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 February 1914

CHAPTER X. Some men who leap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro ceed at once to indulge in vulgar dis- | play. Michael Thorne, however, In his private life remained more or less ' true to the habits of the plodding ' young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of fousi uess rather than pleasure; but he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious ilat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the Housekeeper could have told one that -Mr. Thorne wanted an accurate ac count of where every penny of the housekeeping money went. But It did not follow that the man did not revel in the power of his money; In his power to control the copper market; to raise and de>press and baffle his | rivals in the same market. In this way he got joy of his money. More, than that. It had purchased a whole family, made absolute slrtves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only one thing beyond its purchase power— love, reciprocity. His chance...

IA SUFFRAGETTE "MARTYR" VAIN SEARCH FOR THE "CORPSE." | A pathetic narrative of the sad death of a young: "Suffragist martyr," Wll Uaiu Edward Bethell, aged 19, of Brock ; ley, S.E., who, it is alleged, died follow ing on injuries sustained while being forcibly ejected from a meeting ad dressed by Dr. Macnamara, Parlia mentary Secretary to the Adsoiralty, at the North C'amberwell Radical Club • n November 11, lias been told in Mr and , Mrs Pethictc Lawrence's journal, "Votes i for Women."

MAN WANTED WIRELESS HUNT [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

MAN WANTED WIRELESS HUNT A police net of extraordinary dimen sions and complexity has been spread in the attempt to capture George Sum ner, the young man "wanted" in con nection with the murder of the Liver pool business woman, Miss Bradford. No such world-wide quest for a sus pect has been made since the hunt for Dr. Crippen, who was found on the high seas by the aid of wireless telegraphy and subsequently hanged for the murder of his wife. A description of Sumner has been read out to the officers and men of every police force in the country. This means that considerably more than 100,000 officers are specially on the look-out. In addition the detective forces have been furnished with cop ies of the man's photograph. Special officers have been detailed to inquire at hotels, lodging-houses, hos pitals, workhouses, infirmaries, and mortuaries. Officers at seaports are keeping a special watch on all out going passengers, wireless messages! requesting search for stowaways have been sen...

RURAL HOUSING OFFER BY MR.

This an nouncement I am only now in a posi tion to make. You ask in your letter whether the Local Government Board intend to push on housing schemes by rural district councils, notwithstanding tho recent pronouncement by the Chan cellor of the Kxchcquer on the hous ing question. My answer is that the problem of providing houses in rural districts is, in many cases, an urgent one, and it is obvious that in such cases local autho rities cannot be ...

LABOR AND LARKIN MR HAVELOCK WILSON'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

LABOR AND LARKIN •MI! HAVELOCK WILSON'S VIEWS James Lnrkin, the Dublin striko load er, has aroused active opposition from some English trade union leaders by his "liery cross" tour in this country (says "Lloyd's Weekly, November 30). Notablo protests have been made by Mr J. Haveiock Wilson, president of the Sailors' and Firemen's Union, and Sir J. II. Thomas, M.P., of the National Union of Hailwaymen. Mr Trosam, in a speech at Newton Abbot on Sunday, snid Larkin's mani festo was as ill-timed as it was unfair, as unfortunate as it was mischievous If railway companies broke agreements the men would be justified in doing everything they could to deal with the situation so created, but, while they In sisted on the companies, observing agreements, the men must adhere to the same code of honor. So far as the sympathetic strike was concerned, when onco the National Union of Raihvaymen gave counten ance to that policy assuredly the end of their society had begun. Mr Haveiock Wilson, in his ...

SMALL EXCHANGES TELEPHONE HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

SMALL EXCHANGES TISLiEPHONE HUJIOK What is the smallest telephone ex change in the world? A member of "The Daily Mail" staff* turning over the pages of the telephone directory came across the Castlebellingham area, which contains but three subscribers. However, it is a fine, big, fat. lusty name, and evidently impressed the Post Oflice, for the entry in the directory begins like this: "Castlebellingham area, including t.'astlebellingham. Public Call Ofllco: Castlebellingham." A brave effort to give the entry fur ther scenic importance is made by a lengthy direction as to what one must do in the event of faults and service difficulties, but the melancholy fact re mains that a brewery, some corn mer chants, and Mrs Woolsey-Butlcr share Castlebellingham exchange between them. We rang up Castlebellingham. "Trunks" operator first wondered if we wanted Balham. We said, "No," and insisted politely on Castlebellingham, explaining that it was in Ireland, near Dundalk.

NEW SHAW PLAY AUTHOR'S METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

NEW SHAW PLAY AUTHOR'S METHODS. It is a very little one, this new-play 01 Mr Shaw's. It lasts only a trllle more than an hour, and that is more man long enough (says the "Daily j olograph"). it never attempts to he anything more important than roaring farce, j i never succeeds in being remark ably funny. Not for the lirst time you will envy the ease with which Mr Shaw is amused by his own wit. He crams together good jokes and bad, inventions really comical and the most .tedious banalities. At any moment he may wander off from a happy thought into the dullest trilling. To the fortunate author it is doubtless all equally funny, but you long to submit him to a drastic sub editor. * The idea for this farce was quite a lucky ilnd. Imagine a respectable Englishman, just the kind of Eng lishman at whom the comic papers have been laughing for years, thrust into the presence of the Empress Catherine, that lady of innumerable lovers. There ought to be plenty of fun in that. Mr Shaw .found som...

VOLTURNO'S PROFITS MEN DIED DOING THEIR DUTY [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

VOLTIRNO'S PROFITS MEN DIED DOING THEIR DUTY — Mr Aspmail, icc., lor me owners, charterers, and officers of the emigrant ship Volturno, which was burned In niki-Atlantic on October 9 with a loss of 133 lives, told the Board of Trade in quiry into the disaster yesterday (says "The Dally Mail" of December 12) that in three years between £8000 and £10,000 were spent on the upkeep of the "vessel, which in that lime earned a profit of about £30,000. Counsel cited a letter from the secre tary of the Jewish Women's Associa tion as evidonco that although they had lost husband, children, and be longings, women emigrants were satis fled with tho behavior of the crow. Small blame might, be attached to tho stokers who rushed on deck at the first alarm of fire, but they immediately re turned and stuck plucklly to their work, though they knew that If tho ship went down they would be burnt In tho coffin of their stoke-hole. A moro remarkable act of bravery than Second-Officer Lloyd's trip to tho G...
