EDUCATION BILL RELIGIOUS ASPECT [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

EDUCATION BILL RELIGIOUS ASPECT May I be allowed once more to tres pass upon your space with regard to the religious aspect of the new Educa tion Bill? (wrote Bishop Frodsham to "The Manchester Guardian," Decem ber 15). The Northern Counties Educa tion League, as reported in "The Man chester Guardian" for December 11, ex pressed some concern lest the promised new education legislation should fail to meet the desires of Nonconformists upon this point; they expressed a hope that in "redressing old grievances new ones would not be created by counten ancing the claims to a sectarian right of entry into schools during the period of compulsory education." All of us are desirous of improving primary education in England, and of ending- the deplorable religious difficul ties. These difficulties many besides Nonconformists believe have been largely due to narrowness on the part of Anglican school managers, but, on the other hand, many besides Anglicans think the situation has been aggravated...

TIME'S CHANGES NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

TIME'S CHANGES NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. Mr Athelstan Riley, the wen-Known Anglican layman, writes a notable let ter from the Athenteum Club to "The Guardian" on the new spirit in the Church. I was lunching' tit the United Univer sity Club the other day, when a very youthful clergyman, in a white tie and low-cut waistcoat, sat down beside me. I mentally labelled my neighbor as quite obviously an extreme Broad Churchman, a follower, let us say, of the versatile and amusing Dean of Durham. X thought no more about him, and buried myself in my news paper. Presently a young layman, evidently a recent companion at one of the universities, sat down at his table. What was my astonishment to hear his greeting, " Have you seen Zanzibar's splendid letter?" Now let me point the moral of this little story. You publish this week a deplorable sermon by the Dean of Norwich on Prayer-book Revision. I will fasten upon only one sentence, and that shall be one where he doubt less fancied himself most secur...

Howlett, assistant or ganiser with Mr Beaurepaire, of the swimming branch of the Education Department, was in Rochester ou Wednesday, and was met at the Slate school by members of the com mittee.

He proposed, if re quired , to give a demonstration here next month. He thought that the Department would eventually in clu...

Not a drop of water for the poor horses to drink yesterday—not a drop to drink or wash with and, awful to ponder over, not a drop in case the fire-fiend appeared.

COMMONWEALTH TRADE NOT LANGUISHING. BUT MIGHT BE LARGER. The growth of Australia's trade witu the world at large and the United Kingdom in particular has undoubtedly 'been promoted by the Australasian Chamber of Commerce in London which, as it happens, held its twelfth annual general meeting yesterday (savs "The Financial News" December IS). The president of this body is no other than the present High Commis sioner for the Commonwealth (Sir George Reid). while the chairman is Sir John Cockburn, who is as much at home in the Motherland as in Australia herself. The report then presented has raised some points of great interest both to Australia's primary producers and to consumers in this country. It is need less to insist on the importance, from an imperial point of view, of the trade in Australasian frozen meat. With an ever-growing industrial population and a home meat supply incapable of in definite expansion, it is of the utmost moment to the workers of this country that the grow...

FISHERMAN'S FANCY [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

FISHERMAN'S FANCY By Horace Hutchinson in "The West minster Gazette." A pleasant tale is related of an inge nious gentleman who endeavored to take advantage, for the more success ful catching of the shy trout in a cer tain well-known chalk-stream, of the familiarity which the fish acquire with a human figure that they often see be side the river, and that is associated with agreeable sensations, such as the sensation of dining well. Possibly the very fact of this famili arity is not generally known; but it is a fact that is not to be doubted, for it has been proved again and again, and may be confirmed by a visit to the nearest fish hatchery, that trout in the nursery know perfectly the man, or the men, who feed them. They will come right up to the surface, playing about, expectant of food, when these friendly figures are on the bank. On the other hand, if it be a stranger that approaches, they make off at once into their hiding-places. Nor does it suffice for them that the stranger...

ESKIMOS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

ESKIMOS Villi jalmur Stefansson, who dis covered the white Eskimos, has some very interesting things to say in "Harper's Magazine" about' the Christianising of the Eskimos—those of • Alaska. News just comes that the explorer's ship, the Karluk, with 25 men, is miss ing, carried away in a storm. He and his companions were exploring a vast arctic continent. The explorer was himself once a Divinity student, and has a keen in terest in missionary work. He points out the danger of assuming that the Eskimo in religious matters means what we mean. He thinks in terms of his own knowledge, and not of ours. Among the Eskimos the expression "a wise man," being translated, means "a man who knows a large number of ta boos." He is an honored member of the community always, who knows more than anyone else about the things that ought not to be done. To know these things is very important, for if they be done—if a taboo be broken—no matter how innocently and unknow ingly, the inevitable penalty foll...
