MODERN ADAM'S IDEAL EVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 4 September 1907
MODERN ADAM'S IDEAL EVE. Not one man ln five hundred pictures his future wife in the surroundings of the ordinary girl. Where Is the Adam who dreams of meeting his Eve. short of skirt and strong of arm, In the hoc key field; or striding over, the' turf with a golf club; or plunging madly -after u tennis ball? Au contralre, he pictures her clad ln 'something soft and cling ing,' a being more angel than woman, who. as a dally companion, would un doubtedly prove the most withering bore a man could be cursed with.— 'Throne.'

1 ' A CBIOKET TOIilTWCE. :?..'.'? A somewhat surprising but very plea sant addition, as we have already an nounced, has been made to the Oxford Library of Prose .and Verse. in a cricket volume entitled Hambledon Men. It Is, of course, composed mainly of John Nyren's Young Cricketer's Tutor, and It contains, too. the celebrated reviews of Nyren. contributed ln 1833 to the 'Gen- tleman's Magazine', by ?the Rev. John Mitford, the friend of Charles Lamb, who was then editor. Mr E. V.

Cent Kilos (' Mrs Twenty Stone'), as the French call Mme. Guerln (nee Pesnel), Is being tried on a charge of swindling In connection with her agency. But the remarkable part of the case Is the murderous outrage committed »n Dr. Hefcort (who lives In York Itlace, Marylebone) in a lonely house at Uois-le-lioi. He met the woman and a man named Ceebron In London, it is said, and went to their villa n»ar Peris to recover a l°on of L860. During a talk in tha evenng he was shot at ; he rushed .into the garden, and was, again hit by bullets. CcsbrOn disappeared. When Mme. Guerln, ac cused by her clients, was examined, she dragged in the doctor's name, and according to French law she was permitted at various ' confronta tions' to make charges of complicity against him, from which he has been compl 'tely oxcatirated.

OUIDA'S PENSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 4 September 1907
OWTOA'S JPB»B|IOK. Considerable sorpirtee -has. ,:: been caused by the granting of a Civil List pension of L150 to Miss Louise de la Bamee, better known us 'Oulda,' the novelist. ' .. t If any writer of fiction might be pre sumed to have reached a position of In dependence, If not affluence, It is the uthor of 'Moths,' 'Under Two Flags,' 'Ariadne,' and other works which tad an Immense vogue in tbelr day, end are etUl read In subtle libraries and bought over bookshop counters. The readiest explanation would be that, being a woman and a writer of books, 'Oulda' had a double disquali fication for business, and parte.r -with her copyrights for small sums. That, however, does not appear to be correct. It Is true that ebe parted svltl) her copy rights, but 'that was her obti desire, and the present holders of the rights In ill the -novels. Messrs Chatto and Windus, while unable to disclose the amounts paid, state that they were 'very heavy.' This statement was made to a 'Daily Chronicle' ...
THE PAGEANT CRAZE. SOME HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 4 September 1907
THE PAGEANT CRAZE. SOME HINTS. A pageant should spring from the ground Ike a flowering shrub. It should represent the historical flavor of Its lo cality as a bunch of luscious grapes re presents the chemical elements that produce It. The characters should be enacted. If possible, by the peasantry, who are de scended from those who took part ln the actual event, and also. If possible, the words used by them should be thosu handed down by tradition, knocked into some sort of dramatic shape by the local schoolmaster, or, fallng him, by the clergyman. The costumes should be made by the tailor of the place/ Tailors are a most Intelligent body of men, whose occupa tion gives them time for thought, and reasonable opportunity for study, there fore they could hack out rough gar ments.more or less historically accurate which would carry about with them au sense of the footlights, as is the case with the gaudy rags hired for the week from a London costumier. — Robert Barr In 'The Idler.'

Thus 1 is the Prime Minister, of England de scriljod In books of reference. ; He is uot only Leader of the Com mons. He is Father of the House as well, by right of having sat for tho same place for the longest unbroken term of years. In 1868 he entered Parliament as member for Stiriincr, and has represented uninterruptedly the same constituency ever since. There is nothing of the stern parent in Sir Henry as Fathor and Leader. He shakes no grave and reverend locks at the House. Its waywardness ho never reproves. He prefers to whoedlo and coax it witb a joke. Nor is he ever seen iu a hurry and perturted. Observe him walking leisurely up the floor oT (ho House. He has all the air of a man who en joys life and takes things easT.ly.

This, the* 'TiraeB' says. Is an attempt to stay the tide of unionism on farms. The Walrarapa farmers, however, are not ??ery hopeful that their petition will have any especial power on the Government, and they therefore console themselves with the fact that they have put for ward their protest, end that, come what may, the whole business will have to be dealt with In a broad light, otherwise, the measure will be unworkable. A well .kpown dairy farmer expressed the opinion that it would be Impossible for dairymen to pay their workers from the time they commenced In the morning till when they knocked off In the evening;. The men, he said, were not employed the full time, and the enly way he could suggest was to follow the system of the Government with reference to the. rail way servants— namely, allow...
