Bargain Hunting. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 March 1914

Bargain Hunting. An amusing story is told in. connec-' tion with the early days of Sir J. B. Robinson, the South African million aire, who has been figuring promin ently in the Law Courts. ' He was crossing the Vaal River in 1869, looking for diamonds. He asked the natives i£ they had seen any "pretty stones," and at last he found a man who had a diamond. It was a small stone, and the prospector offer ed him £10 for it, hut he refused to part with it. He increased his offer to £12, but still the man refused. "What will you take for it?" he was asked. "Twenty goats," was the firm reply; "nothing less." ! "I sent off to the nearest farm," says Sir J. B. Rofainson, in telling the story, "and bought twenty goats for £7 10/-, and so got possession of my first diamond."

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 March 1914

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. Concerning the supposed language of anthropoid apes, Professor Boutan has recently taken up the question and arrives at a negative result. It will be remembered that Dr. Gamier came to the conclusion that monkeys have a language analogous to human language and express themselves by signs as well as by sounds which they emit. According to Professor Boutan, there is only a difference of degree be tween this and human speech and not one of kind. He observed the sounds made by a biggon which he had cap tured when young, and his experi ments cover more than five years. He finds that the animal can produce only spontaneous and instinctive sounds corresponding to a state of satisfac tion or the like, or again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appear to correspond to a real language, but rather to what he calls "pseudo-lan guage." While sounds of real lan guage are acquired toy education, those . of pseudo-language...

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 March 1914

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murderers have recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent, of capital sen tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain toeing over 60 per cent. fThe newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without much dlscriihinatloti. By the German law all Capital punishments muBt be carried out by beheading, tout it is left to the separate States ta choose their own method. In those districts •which were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car viiig knife if they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a thair, he is beheaded toy a horizontal 6 weep of a long sword.

A REMARKABLE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 March 1914

A REMARKABLE MEETING, A strange adventure is recorded by a correspondent of a London paper who, meeting a medical friend, looked in at a Fleet-street tavern to talk things over. Here he met another friend, .a master mariner. After an informal introduction his two compan ions talked of things in which he took, no interest, and he joined in another conversation.' Ha!f-an-hour had elapsed when they informed him—profusely grateful for the introduction—that he had intro duced two brothers! They had been separated, not iby quarrel, but by the estranging years. The mariner, as a weakly boy whose life was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived mean counties away, by the sea. He had never re-' visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met.
