DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 19 February 1914
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 and use with such speed and certainty that local feeling is coming to a pitch of high irritation and private pro tests are being made (writes the spe clal correspondent of "The Daily Mail"). The question is much more than local, By the deliberate choice of a new 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 beauty 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. Something has been already heard of the destruction of farms and farm buildings and of the making of a deer forest across the wild and. rich stretch of country below Hindhead and be tween Haslemere and WVitley, on the estate recently bought by Lord Pirrie, one of the first Peers created by the present ...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER X. A New Mission. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 19 February 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE 1d. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER X. A New Mission. Ronald. Halldare had seen Owendo 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 honestly believed Charles Daunce to have been merely the Australian alias of his long-lost cousin Robert. not to be on tenterhooks as to Gwen dolen's opinion after she had had a 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 of the supposed Robert. So when, as he was hovering about the tents, the pair must pass to return to the en closed lawn where the dancers were disporting themselve...
MIDNIGHT BLAZE. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN HIGHSTREET. MR. W V HADDRICK BURNT OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 19 February 1914
MIDNlGHT BLAZE. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN HIGH STREET, Ml W V HA.DRICK BURNT OUT, TlTh alarm of fire at 19-20 a mnyestor. day sent residents by the score bound. ing out of their beds. The blaze was in High-street-at the residence of Mr William Victor Haddriok, piano tuner between the Criterion Hotel and Mr E Ford's butchering establishment. Mr Haddriok was absent froni hodie'at tlje timoietravelling; and M?rs Haddrick (who "was sleeping on the vprand;sh), and the members of the family bad only time to espape, without being able to save anything hbeyon one or two small ajtioles. The origin of the fire is be. lieved to be the bursting of a keroeono lamp ; and the flames spread with such rapidity that the brigadiers, who were early on the scene, under Captain C A Rundle, realised that there was no hope whatever of saving the residence from total destruction. Their efforts were according chiefly directed towards prp venting the 4!ameo from extendihg to the adjoining buildin,. They used the 8i...
REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 19 February 1914
REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately refuses to "thrive" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Dally News" of December 9). From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or reasons can be assigned. Unfortunately the truth more or less generally remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, htandicapped by the fact of not thriv ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the child who does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal, natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree-that is, if we give him a chance. But our methods of cloth ing, feeding, and "managing" our off spring detract from the health and joy of life of far too many of them in this generation at least. GOOD AS HIS CHEST A medical inspector of schools told me the other day ...
INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 19 February 1914
INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. Nobody likes influenza. It has not a friend in the world, and every country tries to make out that the wretched thing is a native of some other country. In Russia it is called Siberian fever, and in Siberia Chinese fever. In France it has been called Spanish catarrh, and Spain throws it back as Russian fever. Dr. Arthur F. Hopkirk gives some interesting lists of the names it has been called in a book on "Influenza." SThe term influenza came to be gener ally applied in England to the disease which was successively known as "the new acquayntance," "the gentle cor rection," "the new delight," and "the knock-me-down fever" by a.mistake. Eighteenth century Italian writers, says Dr. Hopkirk, spoke of "una in fluenza di freddo" (influence of cold), and English physicians, mistaking the word influenza for the name of the disease itself, used it The same term is also used in Get many, where a host of dialect names still prevail, such as lightning catarrb and fog p...
ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 19 February 1914
ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") M. France has been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would he be, any thing so solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them, or around them; for he has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all 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 GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, 0M. France is a pure egotist, an ...
