THEATRE CRISIS COUNTER ATTRACTIONS The. theatres of Paris are, It ap pears, In a very parlous way (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph" on December 16). The cinema, the music-hall, and now, last but not least, the tango, have hit them very hard in that vulnerable point, the box-olllee. In "The Gil Bias" this morning a wail of humorous distress is raised by M. Gabriel Astruc, who is fully quali tled to speak as founder and director of that grandiose enterprise, the Theatre des Champs Elysees, which closed Its doors a week or two ago after live months' existence. The question of why his own en terprise has foundered, and so many others are perilously near the rocks, M. Astrui: answers by the following anecd ote:— (.►no evening about six o'clock I met one of my friends, a grave and re verend signor. 1 suggested that we should make a little fooling—entente enrdiale lOnglish for "Go for a consti tutional"—till dinnertime.

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914

CHAPTER IX. The iiuli' idual may have a long me mory, but the general public lias a short one. Where the general public were concerned, the Hasted tank rob bery had been consigned to the lim bo of forgciten things, through an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would be enough to drag it forth. Men would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" iTlien they would recall the case more or less vaguely. 'The fellow's name was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten years? He was engaged rt> be married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint ill court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But "there was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, bit memories more dcc-iily into heart and soul—as acid bites into metal.

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914

CHAPTER X. Sonic men wlio ieap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro ceed at once to indulge in vulgar dis play. Michael Tliorne, however, in his private life remained more or less true to the habits ot the plodding young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of .busi ness rather than pleasure; but he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious Hat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the Housekeeper could have told one that .Mr. Thome 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 depress and baffle his rivals in ihe same market. In this way he got joy of his money. More than that. It had purchased a whole family, made absolute slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only one thing beyond its purchase power— love, reciprocity. His chance of ob tai...

HUMANE CONSTABLE TOOK ST RICK EX WOMAN TO HOSPITAL Police-Constable "02 A was warmly complimented by coroner and jury at Chelsea on Saturday for his considera tion and humaneness in taking a suf fering woman to Westminster Hospital instead of straight to the police-station (y.uys "Lloyd's Weekly" on December 12). The inquiry concerned the death of Mi's Esther Gardiner, of Commercial road, Pimlico, the middle-aged wife of a porter at Buckingham Palace. The officer said he saw the woman lying on the footpath in Willow street, West minster, looking ill.

FICKLE SEASON HAS WINTER FORGOTTEN TO CALL? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914

FICKLE SEASON HAS WINTER FORGOTTEN TO CALL. ? The continued sociability of the sun, when he really ought to be thinking about going—for it Is getting late—is beginning to make people nervous, in spite of their employment. They like his company, of course; but why is he so remarkably friendly? What does his summer warmth in November por tend? Certainly the vendors of winter blan kets, furs, and overcoats are beginning to look these gift rays in the mouth, so to speak. "Nobody," said a London tailor to a "Daily News" visitor on No vember -i>, "Is having overcoats made. My stock of heavy stuff is practically dead." The tailor's countenance was the only sign of November seen yesterday. He was beginning, quite thoughtlessly, 10 wipe the heat from his brow, but quick ly desisted when he saw an overcoat less man begin to look at his show of gloomy tweeds. Already some big dra pers are inviting the suburbs, by cir cular, to ignore the sun, by glancing at winter goods at reduced prices. T...

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT In a recent issue of the "Lancet" It is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee us have from time to time . been made and published have referred to an examination of the entire coffee berry, and not to the infusion as it reaches the con 8U mer. The results are now set forth of an investigation into the composition of the infusion to be drunk, the chemistry of the "grounds" having been left out of consideration. In drawing a comparison between coffee and tea the results show that while the alkaloid caffeine in coffee is identical with that in tea, yet its as sociations in coffee are different. In tea infusions the alkaloid occurs chietly as a tannatc, which is a com pound insoluble in the acid juices of the stomach. In coffee it occurs in an easily soluble compound. Here would ap pear to be the explanation of the prompt action of coffee as a restora tive and stimulant, particularly when employed as an antidote ttf narcotic poisons. In the ...

AUSTRALIA'S EXAMPLE FIELD OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914

AUSTRALIA'S EXAMPLE FIELD OF EDUCATION. In "The Manchester Guardian" of De cumber 17 Mr Charles Poach, secretary of the Northern Counties Education League, wrote:—The letter of Bishop Frodsham in your issue of to-day's date is a direct challenge to the North ern Counties Education League. Bishop Frodsham appeals, not for the first time, for the ending of the religious difficulty. This he does in the sacred names of liberty and religion. Need I sav that I am heartily with him In his desire. though I pause to examine his methods? Bishop Frodsham frankly confesses, that the difficulties we deplore have been largely due to the narrowness c»f Anglican school managers, but he sug gests that the situation has been ag gravated by a similar spirit of narrow ness in the Council schools. In that a just comparison? In the Anglican schools only Anglicans are appointed as teachers, although their salaries are paid by the public. In the Council schools Anglican tea chers have equal chance with oth...

TRAINED ANIMALS MR. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914

TRAINED ANIMALS MR. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS Mr. Thomas Hardy, In the course of a letter to "Tho Times," says that possibly some animals may be, aiul are, trained for performances without discomfort to themselves, but there is ample evidence to show that many trainers prefer short cuts to attain their ends, and that these short cuts are by the way of cruelty. I have been present, continues Mr. Hardy, at dog: performances at country fairs, where the wretched animals so trembled with terror when they failed to execute the feat required of them that they could scarcely stand, and remained with eyes of misery fixed upon their master, paralysed at the knowledge of what was in store for them behind the scenes, whence their shrieks could afterwards be heard through the canvas. And there are cruelties of a more insidious kind produced by drugs. As to the caging? of birds, the assertion th^t a caged skylark experiences none of the misery of a caged man makes demands upon our credulity. Any how, ...
