HIS OWN SON DISCOVERY OP POLICE SERGEANT Station Sergeant William Alfred Jones gave ovidcnco at the "Wands worth Coroner's Court yesterday (says ''The Daily Express" of December 2), at the inquest on his little son, James Alfred Jones, aged eight, and told a pathetic story of the way ho learned of the tragedy.

Turner, D.Sc., D.C.L., F.K.S., Savilian Professor of Astronomy in the Unversltv of Oxford, who yester day delivered his second lecture sit the Uoyal Institution, London, has caught the imagination of the small boy like a Jules Verne or a Stevenson. He has overcome the ilrmly rooted conviction of the young that all real professors must be dry, elderly, and grim, and that a lecture la a dull sort of thing.

' C0AL=M1NE K.C. SPENT A YEAR UNDERGROUND Mr Leslie Scott, K.C., M.P., has often surprised both his colleagues at tho Har and litigants in coat-minc disputes with his "inside knowledge." Tho secret of how he acquired It was revealed in the Court of Appeal on No vember 23, in a case concerning: work in a South Wales colliery, when Lord Justice Vaughan Williams asked, after :i clear and lucid argument by Mr Leslie 'Scott: "Have you ever been clown a mine?" "I spent a year down one before I came to the Bar," replied IMr Scott. Later Mr Scott said to a representa tive of "The Daily Mall": "When I was reading for the Bar it struck me that a practical knowledge of collieries would be of value to me Jn my future career. I knew a number of colliery managers at Wigan, and with thelf permission I was able to enjoy a run of the mines. I have found the experi ence gained in that year useful on many occasions."

UTOPIANS DIFFICULT TO FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 March 1914

UTOPIANS DIFFICULT TO FACE. The building of Utopias has been u favorite recreation for imaginative men, write*? the Editor of "The Irish Homestead." We do not believe that Plato's Republic was by any means the first attempt to imagine what 4he ideal human community would be like. We have not the slightest doubt that all the buried civilisations were so dis agreeable to the people who lived in them that before they perished through sell-generated diseases, philosophers or philosophicules were preaching ideal*, wise or foolish, to all the discontented who would listen to them. AX IMPLICIT 1.113LIKK. Our own age has been prolillc in the manufacture of Utopias. William Morris tried his hand at it. So did Mr Wells. Su did Kdwanl Bellamy and a score of others. There is somewhere Implicit in the human spirit a belief in the perfectibility of mankind. All re formers appeal to that spirit. Politi cians exploit it. Kvery great measure of recent years which we can remem ber has been prefaced b...

TOWN TRAFFIC CONTROL BRUSSELS AND ANTWERP [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 March 1914

TOWN TRAFFIC CONTROL 1IUUSSHLS AND AXTWBiiP (My n. If. Gordon, L.O.O., in "The Daily News unci Loader") The population of the kingdom of Belgium numbers seven and a half millions. It contains cities like Brus sels, Antwerp, Liege ami Ghent, each vith u world-wide reputation. One recalls with surprise that all these (.Itles and the rest of the kingdom between them contain a population not more numerous than that of Greater London. Geography books declare that Brussels has over 600,000 inhabitants. In reality the four square miles which constitute the city pro per arc inhabited by less than 180,000 persons, which is only slightly In ex cess of the population of the Metro politan Borough of Battersea. ]<\tr political reasons, in order that the capital shall not become a serious rival to the State, it is divided into nine areas, each self-contained and completely independent. There are no visible boundaries. Kven more curi ous is the ease of Antwerp. Within the same city wall...

PURE SEEDS [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 March 1914

PURE SEEDS 'I hero was an act to prohibit the adulteration of seeds passed in 1SD6. It was a failure. Repealed in 1910 by the Seeds Act, 11)10, there has been little if any improvement. Penalties are en acted for breaches of the law; they have been substantially a dead letter, and now agitation is going on for fur ther remedies. People do not seem to bother about penalties, although the law is broken jnobably a thousand times a day. Perhaps neither buyer nor seller know the law. Take, for in stance, the provisions that when seeds are sold in made-up packets the year in which the said seeds were grown will be clearly and indelibly marked on the outside of each packet (scetjon 6). Take the next section, which provides that when you buy a shilling's worth of seeds the vendor must at time of sale, or within 7 days, give you an invoice containing the statements re quired by the Act. The penalties range up to £100, and many seedsmen muse have rendered themselves liable there to, but no on...

FOG EXPERIENCE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

FOG EXFKI1I13NCE AT SEA. (By Frederick Niven, in the "Dally News and Leader"). Firstly, you must have confidence In the captain. Secondly, you must allow the fatalist in you to speak a qiliet word-and then the fog becomes a rich experience. Under the bridge, on the upper deck, is perhaps the best place to enjoy it. From that vantage, peer ing down, you can just make out, in the very bows, two look-out men, cran ing forward, muffled, hands deep in coat pockets, motionless, staring Into the nipping grey vapor. They look liko a new kind of figurehead. Up in the fore crosstrees, in the look-out barrel, are two heads dimly seen, one on each side of the mast, each in the attitude of a short-sighted man peering into a small-print time-table on a wall. Step out from under the bridge and lftok up at it. The captain is canted against the front, coat-collar up, chin sticking out over the canvas dodger; at cither end are sailors in the same at titude. Bosido the little turret-like wheel-house i...

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION'. Uy Douglas B. Armstrong, in "The Dally Express.") The beginning of a year is, appro priately enough, a favorite time tor tho issue of new postage stamps the world over, and a. very considerable propor- < tlon of the postal issuo of the past liavo made their debut on January 1. i Tho New Year of 1014 Is likewise des tined to bring in its train some not able additions to the pages of tho stamp, album, although from a variety of causes It seems improbable that the new* postage stamps issued during the year will be anything like equal to the somewhat abnormal output of This supposition is based on the fact that within the past twelve months the issue of Georgian postage stamps, in place of those bearing the likeness of King Edward VII., by the British do minions beyond the. seas has been prac tically completed, and most of the Por tuguese and many of the French colo nics have been provided with row stamps, while countries like Japan, Ch...

THE WIND OF HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

THE WIND OF HOPE James Douglas, in "The Daily News and Leader.") Swinburne saw and sang "A Vision of Spring in Midwinter." Happy is the man who can always- forget the past and the present and fix his gazo on the future;' For him the darkest night aches with a future star. For him there is a budding morrow in every midnight. For him there Is nothing irrevocable. Happiness is the art of looking forward. Tho other day I was walking on the wet sand along tho chilly merge of the grey December, sea. My mood was cold and dark. Tho remembrance of suffer ing lay heavy on my mind. I had no strength of Joy in mo to struggle with ; the harpies of gloom tearing at my heart. Suddenly 1 felt on my face a llttlo breeze blowing off the waves. It wae like tho caress of an angel. There was something animate in its poignant passion of tenderness. It brought me tho message of miles of strong salt sea. It set every nerve tingling and shud dering with delighted life. As the little wind from the sea played...

TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY APPARITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY APPARITIONS. .By a "Citizen" in "The Daily Toie sraph.") At times, some will tell you, when a wind whistles about the turrets and barred gates of the Tower of London, and out of a break in storm-clouds the , moon peers down, searching with a silvery light the baileys and sally-ports and prisoners' walks guarded by these high walls, tho dark shadow of an axe steals across tho blood-soaked plot of ground on Tower green, and stands gaunt and erect, silhouetted against the Norman keep. The tldo lapping the river wharves, unseen though but a few yards distant, the occasional stir of the shipping, and tho inexplicable sounds of a great city add to the mysteries of thg night. This should bo a wracking place for nerves. Eight centuries of England's story aro isolated within the Tower's encircling walls. If any sub stance there he in the- belief that dis tracted ghosts revisit the scenes of their great sorrows, assuredly upon no spot on earth dc they congregate more t...
