WOMAN'S HAIR CLUE FUSE ACROSS A MOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
WOMAN'S HAIR CLUE FUSE ACROSS A MOAT. . By means of two mines an attempt was made last evening to blow up the. wall of Holloway Gaol (says "The Daily Mail" of December 21), but- owing, to the' manner .in which the mines were, laid, little damage was done save that many windows in the neighborhood woje smashed by the concussion'." The explosions took place behind Dal-! meny-avenue, which backs on to the yard wall of the prison. The houses, which are rented at £G5 a year, stand in gardens which stretch back at least one hundred feet towards the prison, from ivhich they are separated by a dry moat twenty-five feet wide. It was at the back of the houses num bered 10 and 12, the first being empty save for a caretaker and his family, that the explosions took place. The first was heard a quarter of a mile away. It startled the neighborhood just after nine o'clock and was follow cd almost immediately by one more deafening. According to one person glass was heard to smash in all direc tions....
VALUE OF SERVICES LIMIT OF £5000 [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
VALUE OF SERVICES LIMIT OF £5000 Charles S. Mellon, until recently President of tlio New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railway, anil one of America's representative cap tains of industry, has (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Ex press") caused much indignation anions the high-salaried executives of the United States by declaring that no man's services to a corporation are worth mora than £5000 a year, which is ten times the amount once lixed by Mr. John Burns. Mr. Mellen's own salary, as head of the Great New England Railway Corporation, was several times that amount, but he confesses he would have worked just as hard for £5000 a year as he did for the larger sum. Mr. Mellen's argument is that who ever is capable of earning £5000 a year must show capacity equal to the task ol' directing any enterprise what ever. Nobody drawing more than Mr. Mellen's stipulated maximum has been found who is willing to second his views. President Kingsley, of the New York Life Insurance C...
HOME RILE SOLEMN NATIONAL CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
HOME RILE SOLEMN NATIONAL, CONTRACT. Speaking at a meeting in favor o£ Home Rule at Alloa last night (says the "Morning Post" of November 22), Mr John Redmond, 51.P., said that he could never have been a Home Ruler for one moment unless Home Rule to his mind meant a tree Ireland-free'for all creeds, free in all secular and reli gious matters l'rom any spiritual domi nation, either from Rome or any place else. The truth was-and this was the best of all safeguards, and the history ol' the world showed it-bigotry could not long live in an atmosphere of freedom, and if there was to-day any illegitimate exercise of political power in" Ireland and for his own part he did not admit it-such illegitimate exercise of politi cal power never could survive the es tablishment of a free Parliament. SENSE OF IRISH. Protestants, therefore, might feel se cure, first in the stringent provisions of the Bill, then in the spirit of this great Protestant nation, which would be able, at any moment, to stre...
BEBMONDSEY CLUB FACTORY GIRLS' MENU [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
BEBMONDSEY CLUB FACTORY GIRLS' MENU Lying close to the river on its southern bank, and immediately to tie east of London Bridge, is a dis trict to which half a century has Drought great changes. Muny of its streets are still wide and '"of pleasing aspect. Many of its houses are the plain, substantial, red brick homes to which tile comfortable" city mail used to letire after his day's wo2rlc, with gar dens in which he grew his roses and Jus chrysanthemums. JJ ermondsey was a pleasant suburb when the world was not very much younger; and any effort that can be made to dissipate, however slightly, the gloom that has settled over it now deserves to be encouraged. Nowadays .Bermondsey, with great wharves and a busy railway to bring it into touch with the outer world, has iost its old repose.

BOY'S EXECUTION MEN MARCH ALL NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
BOY'S EXECUTION HEN MARCH ALL NIGHT. Ernest Kelly, aged 20, one of the two youthful murderers of an elderly book seller in liis shop at Oldham, was exe cuted In Strangewuys Prison, Man chester, yesterday morning (reports "The Daily Mail" of December IS), while iiOOO men, women, and youths who had marched from Oldham stood outside the prison gates. "A pluckier little chap never walked to the scaffold. Me bore himself brave ly, making neither whimper nor mur mur," Major J. O. Nelson, the prison governor, said. The Home Secretary had reprieved Kelly's accomplice in a murder for rob j bery, an eighteen-year-old lad named Udward Hilton, on the ground of his mental deficiency, and because no n le of his age has been executed in Eng land in modern times. CHEERS FOR KELLY. The rough-and-ready logic of the plain but honest workers of Oldham could not understand why one murderer should die while his accomplice was reprieved, and when Mr M'Kenna's refusal to spare the life of Kelly was conveye...
DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION At the National Liberal Club last night Lord llaldane spoke somewhat alarmingly or the condition of educa tion in this country (states "The Daily News", December 10). I-le said he did not litink lie was taking an unduly alarmist view when lie said that indif ference to education was a serious na tional danger. We came into exis tence as a great industrial nation at a time when we had practically no edu cation. "We were easily first in manufactures in the time when it wanted only dash and go and practical skill. JJut now the art of manufacture was linked with scientific education, and woo be to the country lacking in the scientific equip ment necessary to enable it to compete with its more favored rivals. That was not the only source of na tional danger. AYe were living in a time of great upheaval. The democ racy had ceased to slumber, and it was asking the question why it had so much less than its neighbors of the world's goods. We could no more deal with suc...

REVOLUTION GRANDMOTHER DISGUJSK AS A MAX Mine. Catherine Breslikovskaya, who l'or forty years 1ms ljeen a lead ins spirit among the Russian revo lutionaries, has made a daring-but un successful attempt to eseape from Siberia, where she has been ill exile since 1010 (says tlie St. Petersburg correspondent of "The Daily Mail," December 11). Mine. Breslikovskaya, who is aged about seventy, has been living at ivi renslc (in the south-east of Siberia). On Monday last week she went to din ner at the lodging of another exile named Vladimir.

INDIAN COOLIE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
INDIAN COOLIE WAR Six Indians were killed to-day i,n 11 light with the police in the Mount Edgecombe district (cabled -Router's Durban correspondent on November 27 to the "Daily Express"). The" accounts of the lighting are still somewhat conllicting, but it seentfr clear that there ;were twp sepa rate affrays, one . at" the Hillhead Es tate, and the other at the Blackburn Estate, although there was a connec tion between them. It was in lliu light at the Hillshead Estate taht tile casualties occurred, six Indians, according to the latest infor mation! having been killed, and a number wounded, while three police ollicers were taken to hospital. Half the Indians at the Jlillhead Es tate had agreed to return to work and the other half had refused. Four teen policemen were, therefore, sent to the estate for the purpose of arrest ing the ringleaders of the recalci trants. Jn the meantime the discontented section of the Indians declared that they wished to light the police, and while the p...
THE PROLIFIC PASSION-VINE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
PROLIFIC PASSION-VINE. There is 110 need to stop the run ners, or trailers, -when the fruit is set, 'beyond keeping all irregular and unduly long upshoots within bounds. The vine simply requires to be kept in shape at the pruning season by the pinching back or removal of strag gling vines and shoots, and old vines may be renovated by cutting back all Lhc growth to the main stalk and al lowing a new growth to replace that cut away. Under suitable conditions and in a fairly fertile soil the pas sion-vine 'will then throw out young tender healthy shoots, and will bear good-sized fruit 'without the necessity of stopping the runners, although, as: has been already stated, the trailers should be kept within bounds. The soil should be kept free and loose around the vines, and if there is a deficiency of humus (vegetable mat ter) in the soil, stable or farmyard manure may be dug in. When fertilisers are applied to pas sion-vines they are remarkably pro ductive. From a number of experi ments...
DRAINAGE IN THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
DRAINAGE ,IN THE ORCHARD. Drainage is one of the most im portant aids to success in the pro duction o£ fmiit. If there are indica tions that the soil is retaining too much moisture, a system of under ground drainage should be adopted, as soon as the young trees are plant ed. This work is often allowed to stand over until the second or third year after planting. The orchard is thus kept back at a time when rapid growth is most desirable. Land that has a tendency to hold more water than necessary should be -adequately drained a full season 'before it is planted. Ideal conditions would .be the result, and the progress of the orchard would more than compiyisata for the early outlay. In any case, underground drainage of most areas is essential. It is, therefore, better to do it as soon as the trees are planted, if not a year in advance, than to delay the work for 12 months or more. Many systems of underground drainage have been used with good effect. Narrow trenches cut out about a foot ...
Neither Were Taking Risks. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
Neither Were Taking Risks. A certain reverend gentleman occu pied a state-room 011 a New York liner with a fellow-passenger. Atter a while he began to feel just the slightest bit uneasy as to some Valu ables he had with him. So he took them to the purser and said' "I should just like to explain to you that I am very pleased with my fe'.low passenger-that is, I find him a gen tleman in every respect, and I would not have you think that-well, wculd not have you think that .my coming to you 'with these valuables is to be taken as any reflection on him." With a broad smile the purser interrupted him: "Oh, that's all right, sir; your friend lias come to me with some val uables oif his own; and he said pre cisely the same thing abou;. yourself. I --San Francisco "Argonaut."
EXCUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
EXCUSES. People who are made of the rfeht kind of material do not make excu ses; they work. They do not whine; they keep forging ahead. They do not wait for somebody to help them; they help themselves. They do not wait for an opportunity; they make it. Those who complain of "no chance" confess their weakness-their lack of efficiency. They show that they are not greater than the obstacle which confronts them.
RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. Life has become extremely sensa tional and "rapid" on its outer surface; the women, who were the element cf "quietism" in the generation and generations which preceded ours, hav ing acquired a greater restlessness and a keener appetite for show and move ment than the rnen, writes Mr H. "W. Massingham in the "Daily News." Spiritual restlessness keeps pace with his physical instability. A cloud ol new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus iasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age fills the air. It is hard to keep men's minds on ends which they really desire; so con fused is the intelligence, and .so per turbed the conscience, of the directing or the enjoying multitude. A certain superficiality and light headedness characterise the philan thropies as well as the self-seeking of our times. Politics are becoming singu larly bitter in their expression and highly organised in their form; but tne dividing lines of parties are not very ...
THE PERCENTAGE OF FAT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
THE PERCENTAGE OF FAT. Cream consists of the same con stituents as milk, but they exist in ' varying proportions according to the means by which the cream is pro duced. Shallow-pan cream may con tain from 13 up to 10 per cent, of fat, depending upon the quality of the milk and the setting tempera lure. When cream is raised iby the deep-setting sysLcm, a large volume 0,f cream is obtained, having presenL in if aibout 20 per cent, of fat. The percentage of fat in separator cream may be regulated to any reasonable extent by manipulating the cream screw o£ tlie machine.
GERMAN UNEMPLOYED [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
GERMAN UNEMPLOYED According to the report of 16 of the larger trade unions, 3 per cent, of their members u'ere unemployed at the end of November, the total being 51,303 (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily News.") This is again a considerable increase compared with October. At 303 public labor exchanges there were 219 male applicants per 100 vacancies, and 139 female. The number of members of the State Insurance Committees pay ing premiums-that is, men in work decreased by over 30,000 during the month. The s-erious condition of housing in the villages of Wurtemberg is shown by the report of the State housing in spectors for 1911-1912. During the pe riod under review 34,000 dwellings, or 7 per cent, of the total accommodation, in 1"27 communities were challenged, and declared unfit for human habita, tion, overcrowding and insanitary con ditions being the chief causes. It is stated that the conditions were much worse in country villages than in towns and cities. Uninhabitable ...
POTTED MUSIC TIME'S GREAT CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
POTTED MUSIC TIME'S GREAT CHANGE. Only a few years ago a piano was little more than a piece of furniture, says the "Atlantic Monthly." Sometimes the daughter of the house tinkled scales upon it, or a col legian son pounded out "Whistling Jtufus," or the "Washington Post;" but for the most part it stood silent, majestic, like an inanimate footman, testifying with polished rosewood to the opulence and taste of its possessor. That, is all changed now; pianos are no longer silent; thanks to the perfor ated music-roll, they give tongue un ceasingly. To walk down a subur ban street on a summer's evening is to take an aural bath in the history of music. Through the open windows of cottage after cottage float the com positions of Bach, Sousa, Chaminade, Chopin, Moszkowski, Wagner, Puccini, Lehar, and Ethelbert Nevin, all ming ling in one stunning pot-pourri. One cannot make a simple after-dinner call without paying tribute to the player piano which is one's host's newest pride. To tell the ...
A NEW EVENING WRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
NEW EVENING WRAP. This is a very up-to-date design for an evening wrap, yet it is so simple that the most inexperienced home dressmaker can make it. The body of the wrap i§ in two pieces only, without a seam under the arms. There is hardly an armhole, and there is cer tainly nothing to crush the frailest of frocks. The collar may have a deep square or rounding outline at the back, and may *be of all-over lace or corded silk. The wrap may be made in faced cloth, velvet, charmeuse or ottoman silk. M. Thorp and.

HUMBLE POTATO [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
HUMBLE POTATO Arrangements are being made In France for the celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the death oC Parmentier, whose name is insep arably associated with the introduc tion of potatoes as a popular comes tible. Louis Louis XVI. promised to help him to launch them by giving a ban quet at which they were to be served as an attractive novelty; but the Royal cook unfortunately misunderstood the instructions given to him. Instead of boiling the tubercles, he cooked the leaves as a kind of cabbage. The courtiers, after trying every imaginable sort of condiment with the preparation, pronounced the dish de testable, and declared that no per suasion would' induce them ever to taste it again. Inquiry, however, detected the error which had been | made, and a second experiment brought the new delicacy into high favor.
A NOTABLE SEND OFF. TRIBUTE TO MR. JAS. FAIRLEY. HONORED BY TOWN AND DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 February 1914
A NOTABLE SEND OFF. TRIBUTE TO MR. JAS. FAIRLEY. HONORED BY TOWN AND DISTRICT. As we predicted, a large and repre- sentative gathering assembled in the Tungamah Fire Brigade Hall on Thursday evening last to participate in a cordial leave-taking of Mr James Fairley (late manager of the local branch of the National Bank), In fact it is questionable if a social gathering has ever eventuated in our midst with such a marked degree 0f spontaneous enthusiasm. As a townsman who, during his residence amongst us, was a prime worker in every movement making for our social welfare, Mr Fairley was brought into contact with "all sorts and conditions of men," who collectively looked upon him as a white man and a jolly good fellow, whilst his business tact and courtesy as a banker ensured for him the esteem of those having financial relations with the branch-bank of which he was the chief. It was therefore, but a natural &nbsp; assumption that there would be a large demand for admission tic...
