IN A LONDON WORKHOUSEj CRUELTY AND NEGLECT (By Chris. Mnsslo In tho "Daily Mall.") I do not want anyone to think that Jhy present abode Is a place of uni form harshness ana cruelty. On the other hand—.setting aside the casual ward, which is one of the worst In tho metropolitan area — my present abode has a particularly good name for leniency and fair treatment. My contention from tlio general is this, that cases of cruelty and neglect do happen, and always will happen in Institutions of this kind while in mates Imvo no audible voice and no impartial judgment on their griev ances. ... I shall tako for the special purposes pr my article a circumstanco which happened some time ago.

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 30 January 1914

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. The arming of Ulster has been going on quietly for the last five years. At first the rifles purchased were part of a large number originally made for the Italian Army, but never actually put into service owing to the decision to adopt an Improved type. These Italian rifles (writes Mr II. Montague Smith in "The Dally Mail" of Decem ber G), of which about 25,000 were purchased for Ulster, are not so pre cise as the modern service weapon, being long in the barrel, with an un usually large bore and a high trajec tory. Nevertheless they are very deadly weapons, shooting accurately at a distance of liiOO yards. Each rifl' has a clip holding Jive cartridges. These rifles were bought in Ham burg, and shipped from there to Dun dee, Leith, Newcastle, and Wesl Hartlepool. At one or other of those ports they were transhipped to a boat bound for Belfast, often consigned ai hardware, electrical equipment, or even pianos. SECRECY OBSERVED. These operations were carr...

POOR GENTILITY REMARKABLE LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 30 January 1914

POOR GENTILITY REMARKABLE LETTERS. ' The "Daily Telegraph" published I a short communication from a corres pondent. stating that his daughter j found difficulty in arranging for a suffi cient supply to a business firm of knit ting and crochet work done at home. I It received close on 300 letters ask ing for employment or for further in formation, and many more were de livered in the course of the day. These letters came from all parts of England. London was , of course, largely represented, but the great North and West of England towns, many of our best-known watering places arid quiet villages in many counties sent a substantial contingent. Hundreds of witnesses have here filed i their evidence of eagerness to grasp at . a possible addition of a few shillings a ' week to their incomes. Few show traces of the "pin-money" spirit; many, on the other hand, have clearly a light to make both ends meet. Who are these women?

COOL-HEADED WOMEN I "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." The advent of the light motor-car has Inspired hundreds of v/omcn to loam to drlvo, and almost every day on tho Chelsea Embankment, which Is freo from heavy traffic, passers-by watch the beginning of tho woman motorist's career. An instructor Informed a represent lativo of tho "Dally Mall" on Novem ber 26 that tho woman driver Is either very good or hopeless. "X can toll at tho first lesson," he said, "and it has been my experience that the good woman driver Is superior to tho malo driver. Poscsssing a delicate touch, she rarely bungles tho gears, and when driving is coolness personified. It is, I think, a question of concentration, for a woman I taught rccontly told me, after driving through London with tho skill and dash of a taxicab driver, that she suffered horribly from nerves all night.

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 30 January 1914

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. M. Edmond Perrier, Director of the Natural History Museum in Paris, who has just returned from the Berne International Conference for the Pro tection of Nature (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily News") states that a committee is to bo formed (with its seat at Basle) with the ob ject of framing severo Customs laws designed to prevent the destruction of certain animal species. In Africa, for instance, explained M. Perrier, there are only 400,000 ele phants left, and they are being killed at the rate of 40,000 a year, whereas their rate of reproduction is slow. Whales are in a like case, and M. Perrier foresees very hard times for the Norwegian Trust, which combines 20 whale fishery companies, whose shareholders aro small investors. Dealing with the osprey, which is found only in New Guinea, M. Perrier points out that the aigrette is obtained from the male bird, in whose plumage occur annually at the laying season the 40 odd sprays whi...

HOME DEFENCE Lord Glenconner (Mr Asquith's brother-in-law and former Liberal M.P. for Salisbury), addressing the Liverpool Liberal Federation yesterday (says tho "Daily Mail" of December 2) said that despite attenuated numbers tho Territorials cost £500,000 moro than Lord Haldane assured us would bo the maxrmum cost for the full establish ment of 312,000 men. That was not sound business, and the time had come for an end to be put to these wasteful leakages. What were we to do? There was an alternative measure between the Terri torial Force as now raised and conscrip tion, the latter of which was unneces sary and had never been advocated, i The alternative was to compel the I youth of all classes to take its turn in I the Territorial Force, but instead of the I six months' training which Lord Hal I dane proposed should be given after ! war broke out, there should be a pre ! liminary period of recruits' training. If the extension of the Territorials, both in numbers and training, coul...
