THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN IDYLL OF THE FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914

THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN IDYLL OF THE FOREST. (By M. P. Willcocks, in "Daily News and Leader.") Fecn from afar, this Breton- beech wood is just a blue mist on the horizon. But within it the stillness is so deep that no twig can fall or undcr^owtl rustle without being noted. \\ U'hEfns sounds comes the sense of an abidmg presence, as of one who moves about his own house. In summer the ponds re fleet the green world that surrounds them, and across the long white roads, where- the branches almost meet ovei head, blows the woodland smell, damp and fresh with the breath of air and moss. "Lord of the Seven Forests was an ancient title of the noblesse when almost all the Breton land was forest, the temple of strange worships, each spring therein a haunt of goat footed dwarfs. Now, through the tunnel of the trees, there shines this winter day the open sky and beyond it, more mist of wood land. A silver biroh waves its few pale leaves in air. There is the scent of cleft wood from the heaps of ...

SUNSHINE AND SNOW SPORT IN THE ENGADINE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914

SUNSHINE AND SNOW j • SPORT IN THE ENG-ADTNE. ' New Year's Day in the Swiss moun tain resorts is (says a special corres pondent of "The Daily News and Lead er," writing from Pontresina), one of glorious sunshine and intense frost. ■Better conditions for the skaters who have gathered here from all the corners of Europe have never been Known; but the ski-ers are still looking for more snow. Yesterday there were a few grey clouds that gave them hope, but the snow suddenly changed its fickle mind, and ahis morning tlie region of white above the Engadine Valley was defined in gold and blue by a resplen dent sunrise. • _ 'there is no wind, except that report ed by ski-ers in' the' hotel smoking room, who have laboriously climbed all day to the snowfields to find it, and then sailed down to tea in minutes to tell us of "wind up there like sharp knives." On the lower slopes the air is in complete tepose—which is fertunate, for the thermometer shows an astonish ing degree of cold, which, how...

FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914

FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. Some of us (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 7) remember Mr Walter Passmore's exultant exclama tion in "The Earl and the Girl"—"It ain't the coat wot makes the man; why, demme, it's the trousers." So, evi dently, think ccrtain sartorial experts in America, when they suggest, as we are told, that fashion is about to pre scribe to the "nuts" on the other side, nether garments that shall be "slashed" or "slit," just as women's skirts are, according to the prevailing vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up—as it were—endless pos sibilities, even to the average male mind. We seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more elaborately embroidered than they are now in Dudeland. Also do there seem to loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bejewelled shoe-strings, and dainty garters—with, perhaps, a bit of airy frilling thrown in. For, once you open the floodgates of fashion at the trousers seams from the knee dow...

POSTAGE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914

POSTAGE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES (By Fred. J. Melville, in "The Daily Telegraph.") The Khedive Abbas Hilmi cele brates this day the twenty-second an niversary of his accession (January 8, 1S92), .and the new stamps of Egypt which have been ready for some time have been withheld for issue to-day. The new stamps have been expected for some months past, the intention of the authorities to have new stamps being first announced in "The Daily Telegraph" in October, 1012. The cur rent number of "The Near East" pre sents a supplement giving illustrations of to-day's issue, showing the stamps to be distinctly Egyptian in design, and not less characteristic in execution of the typography of the London firm of Messrs De La Rue and Company Limited. As "The Near East" states, the most significant fact about the new issue is the use of English wording for French; for "Poste Egyptiennes" is now substituted "Egypt Postage," and the value "Un Millieme" gives place I —— ! to "One Millleiae," etc!

MARRYING OF MURPHYS GRAZING RIGHTS AND AFFECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914

Marrying of murphys GRAZING RIGHTS AND AFFEC TION'S. The marrying season is coming on in Connaught—it lasts from about mid January until Lent' — and important questions have to be settled. They are questions of money .mainly (says the Connaught correspondent of "The Daily Express") because Mary Murphy may be as beautiful as the Dark Rosaleen herself, but if she has not £60 or so by way of a dowry, or a farm with graz ing for about four cows, she is not go ing to find a husband in Mayo. It is hard to believe that so charming a people as the Irish peasantry. to whom the poets have ascribed so many romantic gifts, should measure the ten derest passion in the terms of grazing rights for four cows, but Mr Finn O'Brolligan, who takes an hereditary interest in the concerns of the con gested district from which I write, as sures me that they all do. Mr O'Brolligan thinks romance may still linger in Walsall and Stow-on-the Wold, but he says it has not been known about Ballina since the Widow...

SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914

SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER. Mr Orville Wright's prediction about; the popularity and cheapness of aero- j planing as a national pastime in 1914 (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph") is endorsed by many people here, who believe that a really efficient "stabiliser" will shortly be placed on the market. The Ameri can inventor's device, so successfully tested at Dayton, Ohio, as described al ready in "The Daily Telegraph," con sists of a compensating appliance at tached to the steering post, which, when the machine suddenly dips or swerves, automatically • tips the wings and rudder to the proper positions. Mr Wright made seven circles without touching any of the controlling levers. Several times the craft appeared to be diving, but on each occasion righted it self automatically. The (lights were made on the fifth anniversary of the winning of the Michelin trophy by Wilbur Wright, in France. To-day a daily aeroplane passenger service was inaugurated between Tam...

SCENE AT A STATION ATTEMPT TO RESCUE PRISONER [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914

SCENE AT A STATION ATTEMPT TO RESCUE PRISONER A desperate attempt made to rescue a prisoner at Stratford main station, on December 18 (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 6) was recalled at West Ham police court yesterday, when Charles. Woodward, alias Percy Weeks, 35, a fish salesman, of 23 Cres cent road, Upton Manor, and Walter Burling, 34, costermonger, of 12 Broad street, Stratford, were charged with obstructing police-constable William Hubbard, 175K, while in the execution of his duty. Mr E. B. Knight prosecuted for the Police Commissioner; Mr J. W. Rich ards defended Woodward, and Mr W. Daybell represented Burling. Mr Knight, in his opening statement, said a man named Johnson,-sent for trial to Chelmsford for pocket-picking at Ilford skating rink, was being con veyed to Chelmsford. There was a desperate and regular plot to rescue him, and if he had been got away, he would have been whisked away in a motor car which was at the station in waiting. Constable Hubbard, one of t...

A Plea on behalf of the Printer! [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914

A Plea on behalf of the Printer ! A correspondent, evidently possessing some idea of what newspaper men have to put up with in the way of " long-winded" subscribers, has supplied us with the follow ing :■— Lives of great men all remind us Honest men don't stand a chance ; The more we work there grow behind us Bigger patches 011 our pants. On our pants once new and glossy, Now are stripes of different hue ; All because subscribers linger, And won't pay us what is due. Then let us all be up and doing, Send your mite, however small ; Or, when the cold of winter strikes us, We shall have no pants at all.

THE RETURN OF DAVY j (By Archie Gilkison in "The Glas i' V gow Weekly Herald.") When Davy returned from abroad, after an absence of some fifteen years. ' he had great difficulty in locating tnt whereabouts of his one and only rela tive, his brother Andrew; but, dogge and painstaking inquiry won the day and* Davy learned, through a source which he least expected of being of any value, that his brother Andrew resided at Mossvale Villa, Swankhih road, W. To this address Davy a^.' cordingly bent his steps one evening, his big deep chest tingling with a van ety of emotions. "My word," he muttered, as hi3 eye fell upon Mossvale Villa, standing in all its Jerry built majesty in its own grounds, "my word, if this is Aundra's hoose he's gettin' on in the world. Bui it's inconceivable. This'll be wan o' thae boardin'-hooses, and I'll wager Aundra's only wan o' the lodgers."
