He was educated at Stratford os-Avon Grammar School. He studied for the Civil Service, but, abandoning this, went on the stage, in the company of Mr. Frank Benson, his cousin. Six years were spout on the stage, but feeling the impulse to write stronger than that of acting, the poet became an Army tutor. His first ?rmfc snnceRB war ?

BEERBOHM TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902

BEEEBOHM TEEE. The produce of Stephen Phillips' Uly6Bess is one of London's most enter prising actor managers. Born and edu cated in Germany, his real -name is Beer bohm, but he assumed the surname, Tree, by Royal license. He first went on the stage in 1878, and after nine years became manager of the Haymarket Theatre, where every play that he pro duced succeeded. Since moving into his magmncent new cneatre, ner Majesty s,' his luck has not been so constant, though his Shakespearian revival? have been in the best interests of the drama. Mrs. Tree is an admirable actress herself, and her little daughter promises to follow in her parents' footsteps, as she has already made an appearance in public. Mr. Tree is freely spoken of as ono of the most likely theatrical recipients of Coronation honours. To strangers the most remark able point of Mr. Tree's striking features is his eyeB, which have a vague, dreamy expression, strangely belied by the won derful energy of their possessor.

MR. BRODRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902

MB. BE0DEI0E. The Eemount scandal has made the Secretary for War the observed of all observers, much to his own discomfort. Mr. Brodrick's advance has been rapid, perhaps more rapid than his talents deserve. On- leaving Oxford, where he had been President of the Union, he at once entered political life as member for west surrey, but transferred himself in 1885 to the Q-uilford division. He has chiefly been at the War Office, being suc cessively Financial, and then Under Secretary in the Tory Governments of '86 and '95. He became Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs as a change in '98, but after the election of 1900 he returned to Ub old department at itB head. The cares of office have somewhat worn away Mr. Brodrick's geniality, and hiB ques tioners often get angry replies. HiB daughter a short time ajo married the heir to one of the few Opposition peerages. So the Unionist party owe Mr. Brodrick notch outside Parliament, as well as within it. He was formerly a lieutenant in a Surrey...

'ALL WORK AND NO PLAY.' [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902

' ALL WOEK AND NO PLA.Y.' We all know the old adage, ' All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy/ an 1 perhaps it is particularly true when ap plied to buBy wemen. Women, if I may express it so, plod at their tasks in a way unknown to most male workers. Ask any business manager of a firm which em ploys both sexes, and he will tell you that he women are bv far the most con scientious, and turn out the most woik in a given time. Then, too, Nature meant men to be the bread-winners, and endowed them with constitutions more fitted for the daily drudgery of office or professional life. The mere fact of having to do the same thing day by day is positively deadly to many of the gentler sex. To take up work and run it as a hobby, and taking up work as a' means of providing bread and butter for yourself, or those de pendent on you, are things as remote aB the Poles. .

Aa a rule, the fussy hostess is at once the most irritating and irritable of her tribe.

IS DRUNKENNESS A DISEASE? [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902

IS DRUNKENNESS A DISEA.SB P Dr. J. F. Sutherland, of the Scotch Lunacy Board, urges that drunkenness and habitual drunkenness should be con sidered offences against the law, but sug gests that the fact that the intoxicated person is1- * non compos mentis' should bave weight in criminal as it has in civil law. The ? British Medical Journal ' argues that it tms came aoouc, 11 wouiu leave, in criminal cases, the voluntarineBS of the drinking as a basis for punishment. The moment at which drinking or the habit of drinking be comes involuntary in many cases it impossible to determine. The Inebriates Act assumes that drunkards can only be punished satisfactorily by admitting a partial responsibility and a partial in voluntariness demanding treatment.

Science. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902

Science, fF you suffer from indigestion, try the effect of a teaspoonful of pure gly cerine taken after each meal. This will often cure an obstinate case of indigestion of long-standing in about a fortnight. Mix the glycerine with half a wineglass of water. Chapped Hands.— One of the be»t pre ventatives and cures of chapped hands is made of equal parts of lemon juice, gly cerine, and eau de Cologne or rose-water. Shake the battle, ana apply a uuab vo hands each time after washing. Stye in the Eye— Make a little poultioe of the soft part of a baked apple tied up in muslin, and apply it to the eyelid ; keep it in its place by a bandage round the head. If this be done at night, the stye will be much better, if not quite cured, by the morning. If you suffer from rheumatism buy a pennyworth of flowers of sulphur, and sprinkle it well into the feet of a pair of stockings, which you must wear at night. The sulphur is quickly absorbed into the system through the feet, and, as every one know...
