ENGLAND'S WINTED FLOWERS IN THE OPEN [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914

_ N6LAJUB'S'-WINrTED FLOWERSI IN THEI OPEN Who said winter? The flattest contradiction ever of fered to the December almanac, at any rate for 16i years, is given in the bas ket of roses sent by a reader in Ryde, Isle of Wight (says "The Daily Mail," on December 21). Horace Walpole boasted of a blossom onl his nectarine tree on December 26, 174-" but his re cords all go by tile board. We can overwheln hinl with bouquets, and give hinlm also fruit for his flowers. SHa ilshbam (Sussex) garden carries to-day simulta:neously roses, mistletoo and apple blossom, as strangely assor ted a trio of blossoms as ever gazed at one another out of doors across an English gardon. Decorations for one Christmas table, it is already arranged, are to consist of one huge bowl of real roses tandt one of "Christmas roses." or hellebore, wiith a vase of sprays of ripe raspberries itt the middle. Tie roses of the Isle of Wight lead th way. There are still over sixty sorts of Ilowers out in a iRyde garden. Il...

A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914

A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. By tile publication of what has been happily described in tlhe preface as the birth certificates ".of a nation,"_ tth'&._.UL rsl..t.tr? ment has inaugurated the collected publifatlon of the Historlcal Records of Australia. These "birth certifi cates" consist of a series of litho. graphs of original documents conlnet ed with thile foundation.of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Austral!a. First we have the oaths of ofnce taken by Cap tailn Phillip with all the quaint archaic le phraseology of thile period. To readers of the twentieth century 'he sug gestions of the dynastic and sectarian struggles through whichl the nation had recently passed, and wh.ch were still agitating men's minds, muIst seem strange as they are discl.ed in the curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his onicers had to take.

Mr Salmet and his passenger started fromn IHendon on Saturday morning al most oni the Inspiration of the moment and under the most favorable weather conditions.

They started off again across Channel at 11.30 yesterday with a south wind of about twenty-five miles an hour gradually increasing In strength, Then began a game of hide and seek In the clouds, to whteh more than a spice of danger was added.

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914

REARIN CHBILDREN 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 "tllrtve" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Daily News" of December 9).

It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the child who does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal, natural young of tilhe 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.

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914

TITE STREET CLEANER A paper having said that "To recog nlse the supremacy of the street cleaner would be to usher in the reign of chaos," "The Daily Herald" takes it to task and says:--"Now, that Just 'rings us very close to the root of the matter. 'Supremacy' is indeed the wrong word. an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants Justice, the right to live a human and progressive life. his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual economy he is as truly and deeply to he considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. TWe may thus re-state the proposition: To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity.'

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwohl. in "The Daily News.") .r. 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 lie h has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy.
