WOMEN AND CHILD WORKERS FACTS REVEALED BY CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

WOMEN AND CHILD WORKERS FACTS REVEALED BY CENSUS. An extraordinary Blue hook in con nection with the Census of 1911 was issued yesterday (says "The Daily News of December 18). It runs to nearly 800 pages, and gives but one table, and that in condensed form! This is the table of occupations, and study of the huge volume of figures is really fascinating. Thus, to summarise, there are in England and Wales 11,453,665 males and 4,830,734 females engaged in occupations. Of the women 3,739,532 are unmarried, 680,191 are wives, and 411,011 are widowed. The very young and the aged in occupations number: Ages. Males. Females. 10 0 IS 21.5S0 10,2i3 13 .. 75,661 39,033 1 4 222,551 133,217 65 anfl more 435,318 122,332 The largest numbers, of course, are employed at 25-35, the figures being 2,792,750 men and 1,057,275 women. Then, owing, no doubt, to marriage, there is a great decline in the number of women workers. At 34-45 they total only 604,769, compared with 2,296,211 men. WHERE WOMEN PREDOM...

The Sau Mountains (British Somaliland), Nov. 8. Abyssinia—I am glad to be out of [ It—is a Christian country. It is popu lated by the least pleasing of black races, and has also a population of witches, wizards, gnomes, goblins, and a large and varied assortment of de vils. Even if you refuse to believe in j fairies, good or bad, you will believe, when you have travelled in Menelek's land, in the devils of Abyssinia.

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. (By L. G. Chlozza Money, in "The Dally News.") The death-rate of the United King dom is 14,000 a year cf the population. This rate expresses the averaging of ome wide variations—variations which express the differenca between good '.lousing and Dad housing. There are places where the death-rate Is about 20 per 1000; there are other places where it falls below 10 per 1000. Ct is easier to state these things than to bring home to the mind the full re alisation of their meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrible import. To show what a death-rate may be under decent conditions, that of East bourne is about 10 to 1000. That also is about the death-rate of Hampstead. It is also the death-rate of New Zealand. What would it mean to the United "Cingdom if the death-rate of the whole country could be reduced to this figure, shown to be a possible figure by actual experience? It would mean a saving in the .United Kingdom of 184,000 lives. That is to say...

PRINCE AND ACTRESS SEQUEL TO MARRIAGE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

PRINCE AND ACTRESS SEQUEL TO MARRIAGE The marriage of a prince with a music-hall performer was yesterday the basis of a remarkable action in the Paris courts (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Mail," De cember 5). Prince Auguste of Broglie-Revel married last year Mile. Jane Thylda, a music-hall artist. His brother, Prince Henri of Broglie-Revel, and his uncle. Count Robert of Clermont-Ton nerre, the well-known sportsman, were, it appears, annoyed by the mar riage and the family broke off all re lations with Prince Auguste and his bride. The uncle and brother de manded that the remains of Countess Sosthene of Clermont-Tonnerre and of Princess Henri of Broglie-Revel should be removed from the private chapel of the Castle of Loroy, where Prince Auguste and his wife live, and re-interred in the family vault in the cemetery of Pere la Chaise in Paris. A few days before his marriage Prince Auguste wrote to his uncle an nouncing that he proposed, in order "to regularise his posit...

OBSTACLES OVERCOME FROM PORTER TO PROFESSOR [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

OBSTACLES OVERCOME FROM PORTER TO PROFESSOR Humble rank and poverty, although formidable obstacles to anyone who wishes to attain prominence in the leirned profession in Russia, have been triumphantly overcome by a poor rc.an, M. Prokaroff, who, after a fight against odds, has risen from the posi tion of college doorkeeper to an im portant appointment upon Che educa tional staff of a university, says the St. Petersburg correspondent of "The Daily Citizen." M. Prnkaro-f. the son of a cook, was a doorkeeper at the Lasareff Institute for the study of Oriental Philosophy. Here he began to interest himself in the study of Oriental culture. He bor rowed books from students and ac quired a knowledge of Oriental lan gauges. Soon he became efficient in matters connected with the science of Orient. For two years Prokaroff studied in tently. His application to Oriental reading was, of course, continually in terfered with by his duties as door keeper, but on those occasions when he was statione...

He had. been drinking freely, and was always in clined to excessive' dramatic gesture. Without speaking, he opened the case and drew out a flve.-pound note. "Going to pay (back by instalments?" asked Thorne, sarcastically. "No, de-ar boy—that is to say; He came closer, not consciously ape ing an air of mystery and restlessness. "I—this note—I had a little suc cessful . monetary transaction to-day "Backed a 'winner!" sneered Thorne in his slow, heavy, sarcastic . tones, "You don't say so!'' "Yes.

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

CHAPTER IX. The individual may have a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public were concerned, the Hasted bank rob bery had ben consigned to the lim bo of forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would be enough to drag it •forth. Men would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" Then they "would recall the ease more or less vaguely. "The fellow's name was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten years? He was engaged to be married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But there was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, bit memories more deeply into heart and soul—as acid bites into metal. There were no bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army officer and a gentleman. But prison regula tions were prison r...

The personnel that was needed -to deal with naval matters during the building up of the fleet and in the initial stages of the organisation of Admiral Henderson's scheme was of quite a different character from that which is necessary now that Admiral Patey has arrived in Australian waters and the serious business of training the officers and men of the Royal Aus tralian Navy has been commenced in real earnest. Among the changes which are in contemplation is the reconstruction of the Naval Board.

KITCHENER'S GREAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

KITCHENER'S GREAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE A striking picture of the work that. Lord Kitchener is doing for Egypt as British Agent-General and of the im pression his picturesque and vigorous personality has produced on the native mind was forthcoming yesterday (says "The Daily Mail" of November 29) in conversation with G. N. Sarruf Bey, son of the proprietor of the well-known Cairo vernacular newspaper, "Al-Mo kattam, who is now in London on the firm's business. Sarruf Bey said: The popularity enjoyed by Lord Kit chener in Egypt is wider and more comprehensive than that enjoyed by any of his predecessors. I think gne may safely say that Lord Kitchener is the most popular figure in Egypt to day. He has made all the Egyptians, from the Khedive down to the hum blest fellah (peasant), realise that he is the friend_of the Egyptians and under stands their needs.

FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE! The French Cabinet, with faith in its strength, proposed -a vote of confidence this evening on the question of the £52,000,000 military loan to meet ■ the German phallenge, and the measure was passed by 291 votes to 270 (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Express" of December 2). Earlier in the day the Deputy M. Brousse had presented an amendment to increase the loan lo £60,000,000 on the score of 1914 budget necessity. Af ter discussion of the * Treasury re quirements, M. Dumont, the Minister of Finance, accepted the Brousse amendment, j This raised renewed opposition, how I ever, and M. Barthou, the Premier, in ! tervening, declared that he would not j engage himself to the proposal to in crease the loan, but held that the £52,000,000 figure was irreducible. "If the Chamber does not, vote it," he said, "it will be another Govern ment which will make the same de mand." I Finally the Brousse amendment wrs [ rejected by a large majority,...

The lads were in One trim, and played crisply from start to finish. The vocal items were much appreciated, and the altempheric conditions conducive to the comfort of the audience and piaycrs alike. Admission was by silver coin, and the collection amounted to neaily ^8. This a-'iiounl will appre ciably lessen the expenss of the band members' trip to Sliepparton to-day.'
