BLACK MAGIC WIZARDS PRACTISE TO-DAY Black Magis is bv no means so rare a thing nowadays as the sceptical and unsuperatitious would think. "There are people in London to-day who practise witchcraft," declared Monsignor Benson, the well-known Catholic author, to a surprised "Daily News" representative on December 1G. "Oddly'enough," lie went on, "the two persons whom I have in my mind are not women, but a middle-aged man and another male somewhat yourtger, so I suppose one should call them wizards, rather than witches." "IX LEAGUE WITH EVIL SPIRITS" "Mediaeval rites." was Monaignor Benson's brief description of the per formances of these . persons-'"rites which involve fasting and obscenity. They claim that they are in league with evil spirits, exactly as tile old witches did. They .are well educated; whether they are made or not. or whether they are liars or not, are points on which I would not care to commit myself. But I know they attempt this witchcraft." Explaining what may be ca...

DOM MANUEL'S BRIDE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914
DOM MANUEL'S BRIDE I It was perhaps the hearty generos ity of the English sporting instinct, as much as anything else, which sent a suburban crowd to welcome the young ex-ruler of Portugal. Dom Manuel, and his wife, Dona Augustine do Bra ganza, to Twickenham on Saturday (says "The Daily News," December 15). From the throne of (in ancient and ' splendid Catin State to Fulwell Park! \ That thought touched the sympathetic hearts of many British unpolitical households. ! "Such a young feller, loo." said a dame with a market basket, gazing at the Royal motor oar outside the deco rated Town Hall at Twickenham. "It only shows what might happen to . any of us." I For others there was the romance of ! it. No wonder such a host of young ladies were there when the municipal ! address of welcome was given. It was. as one soulful girl put it, "like a J novel." It was indeed. ! Dom Manuel and his bride, it must be ! said, showed 110 sign that the dignity l of most of the Royal blood of Europe, j ...

RING STORIES SHORTEST BOU'i' ON RECORD Few men have a more intimate knowledge of the Inner history of the most sensational box ins contests of re cent years than Mr R. P. Watson, who was referee in what was at the time the shortest fight on record. The inci dents related to a "Lloyd's News" re presentative by .Mr Watson are fully us startling and unexpected as the amazing defeat of the British cham pion by a young French boxer at tli National Sporting Club on Monday. "The recent short-lived contest takes my memory back to what was almost my baptismal lire as a referee in the prize ring, and at that date the short est fight on record. "The two contestants were Raphael and "Dutchey," and the light took place 1 at the Three Colts, Hackney, thirty-six years ago. Less than a single round completed the engagement. "Dutchey" was the better boxer, and in a rally Raphael fell. As he was rising, and while still on one hnee, 'Dutchey' struck him, and was disqualified. "Objection was taken to m...

That is because about all of the pro minent business and professional men of the city are members of this un usual as well as .largest Sunday school in Kansas. Sheridan Ploughe, the superinten dent of this Sunday school, with a membership of 1-100, is a farmer. He is a stout, jolly fellow, who says he wants .to have all the fun there is go ing, and to get all the good possible out of living. Running this big Sun day school, with its SO teachers and managing his fine fruit farm and gar den patch two miles away, he says f...

GLOWING APPRECIATION "NIGHTINGALE IN TIIB GIX>AM ING." The provincial journalist does at times pile it on. Regarding a lady who recently sung at a village entertain ment an appreciative scribe writes as follows in the latest issue of a Border weekly: When Miss B has come into the kingdom of the few elect players and London and the Continent claim her, it will delight us to remember that one unforgetful evening wo heard melodies such as the nightingale pours forth in the gloaming when tlic perfume of th rose intoxicates her heart with the sweet forebodings of spring - tones I that kissed mutually and then fled poutingily from one another, and at last embraced and became one, and died away in the ecstasy of union.
