STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. Perugia's pretence that he stole the "Gioeonda" from the Louvre with a view to restoring1 some of the master pieces carried away by Napoleon is badly chosen (says the Paris correspon dent of "The Daily Telegraph" of De cember 16). He does not seem to know that the "Gioeonda" happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that were never in the possession of Italy. It was acquired from the artist by Francois I., King of France, for the i sum of 4000 gold ecus, and had been at Fontainebleau and Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre. That Peru gia simply hope to make money out of ■the theft seems to be proved by the fact that before he carried off the pic ture he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers. Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in his room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December 28, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the the...

NORWAY modern influence "1 have just received a letter from a friend at present travelling in Norway, where she has not been for twelve years," says the editor of "The Vine yard." "It was not written with any idea of publication, hut so finely and sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is' blessed with one oi tne noblest peasantries in the world,,point the evils which "The Vineyard is out to fight, and the good which it exists to defend and encourage, that I venture, in good ^ conscience, to print it without her permission." "It is like a dream to find onesell \ again in this romantic land, and in one day we have already seen so much that it seems long since we left home.

POTENT SUPERSTITIONS BELIEF IN CHARMS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

POTENT SUPERSTITIONS BELIEF IN .CHARMS Witchcraft is not dead. In view of I the reassuring results of inquiries made by a "Daily News" representa tive on November 14 Mr Oliver Maddox Iiueffer and Mr Chesterton may take heart of grace again, secure, states' that journal in the knowledge that the superstition that is the salt of this .material age, still flourishes in its traditional potency in spots much less remote than even the most credu lous commonly imagine. "It is true," said Mr A. R. "Wright, the editor of ®"Folk-Lore," to whom . witches of all classes and colors are familiar spirits, "that the black or evil witch has largely disappeared, but the white witch, to whom villagers re- •: sort for the cure of all manner of diseases, still survives in Yorkshire and in many other parts of Eng land. "Here, for example, is the prescrip tion of a cure for jaundice practised recently by a white witch, whose de puty told the secret to me, thus break ing the spell for ever : Take a small p...

PATHOS OF LAST TURN WILL POWER TRIUMPHS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

PATHOS OF LAST TURN WILL POWER TRIUMPHS. In the old days at the Pavilion Mr uViark Melford, the brother of Austen Melford, often appeared in his sketch "Non-Suited," and at his farewell mati nee at the Little Theatre yesterday he once more took the part of Mr Stur geon, K.C. (says the "Daily News" No vember 28). The veteran actor is very ill indeed, and it was only by strength of will that he was able to take his last turn. There was still the same dry humor cross-examination, and ,thel same/i,Q>cJsive asides. £ At the eficr 91N. the afternoon; sur rounded by hiB-^Piends and those who ta^ken part u^the performance, Mr mark- .Mdlffor(t- reeitfed his own poem on the Suffragette's Jj&rd path as pioneer. Miss Ethel Tittmry had to prompt him '^ftQg^-the 'bQQ^r'and it was pathetic to see nttVftfte sick man forgot his weak ness in the pleasure of declaiming: his poem. Many actors have taken fare well of the stage, but none in such touching- circumstances. There could not have be...

WHISTLER'S WORK [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

WHISTLER'S WORK - v The common impression among ar tists and art students, undoubtedly is that Whistler was a particularly rapid w.orker. Mr Joseph Pennell, however, holds to the contrary, with this advantage in argument, that, having sat to Whistler for eight insufferably long hours, for the purpose of a sketch portrait which has all the apparent characteristics of a "lightning" drawing, he speaks as one who kows—only too well! Pleasant "asides," of this piquant nature, were the best features of Mr Pennell's de lightful lecture on "The Revival of Lithography" at the Victoria and Al bert Museum (says the "Westminster Gazette.") IJt was a real privilege to hear a skilled artist praising enthusiastically the high possibilities of lithography, and prophesying for it a great future- Show ing on the screen some beautiful modern examples of the art by Whistler and George Clausen, Mr Pennell spoke of the .pains and patience with which Whist ler, in particular, worked for the exact effect w...

TELEPHONE TRICK TALKATIVE CANADIAN'S DODGE [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

TELEPHONE TRICK TALKATIVE CANADIAN'S DODGE! The story of a telephone trick to ob tain money was told at the Mansion House yesterday (says "The Daily News of December 9), when Alexander Stewart, 32, was charged. It was stated that after telephoning: he called upon city* firms, stating that he was the representative of a Canadian preserving and fruit shipping company. In one instance he said he wanted paint for galvanised roofing, and in another that he required fire ■ hose. He discussed prices and other details, and then discoursed on Cana dian affairs and the apple industry. Eventually he said he had some nice cases of apples at Covent Garden which he would willingly sell at cost price. In one instance he got 5/3 for a case of apples and in another a sove reign. The apples were not delivered, and letters were returned through the dead letter office. He was sentenced to six months' im prisonment with hard labor.

ALLEGED GIRL DRUDGE iCHILD'S EVIDENCE OP BEATINGS A little girl of eleven, who was said to have been made a household drudge, gave evidence in "West London Police Court yesterday (says "The Dally Mail," December 12) against Harry yelten and Ethel Hobson, of 15, Wood stock road, Shepherd's Bush, who were charged with ill-treating her. Mr H. Pierron, for the National So ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, said the child, Dydia Maud, was the daughter of the woman defen dant, who had been heard to say that j ; she "would like to get rid of her."

SMOKING IN BUNKS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

SMOKING IN BUNKS When the Board of Trade inquiry in to the burning,' of the emigrant ship Yolturno was resumed yesterday (says the "Daily Mail" of December 6), a steerage steward who was known in the Volturno as "Samson" — "because I vos so leedle," he explained to th© court — narrated in voluble broken English how the "bright, bright flames" rushed out of No. 1 hold Mr Raeburn (for the Board of Trade): Did you see passengers falling overboard?—Tes. Where was that?—On the after-deck. A Frenchman took his daughter, I think it was, and threw her into the water. Then he threw his wife and jumped with her without any warning. He was crazy. He was a cabin pass enger. All the emigrants were properly pro vided with lifebelts, though the wit ness had noticed during the voyage that whenever the people wanted a piece of string they cut the strings off the belts. Counsel: How did you get the life belts on the children ?—Some small children we put them twice round. In other cases we cut the bel...

HOUSE OF BEDFORD BURKE'S COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

HOUSE OF BEDFORD BURKE'S COMMENT. The big sale of the Duke of Bed ford's property (Covent Garden) recalls a statement of Burke as to how the earlier Russells got their vast landed possessions. "The Duke of Bedford," he said, "is the leviathan of all creatures of the Crown. . . The grants to the House of Bedford were so enormous as not only to outrage economy but to stagger credulity." At one time the Duke of Bedford was set down as holding 86,424 acres in eight counties. A great deal of his property has been sold of late years, j Sir John Macdonnell, in his work on J the land question, has some severe strictures concerning the Duke of Bed ford's gates, now, of course, done away with, "which are closed at early, odd, and inconvenient hours, and which in dicate the seigneurial rights to treat some of the populous districts of Lon don as if they were private gardens." The motto of the Russells is the fatalist one, "Che sara, sara"—What will be, will be. PRESENT DUKE. The Duke of Bedfor...

SHINING CYLINDER KING GEORGE SET FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 26 February 1914

SHINING CYLINDER ■ . ' KING GEORGE SET FASHION. The announcement that it is the de sire of the King that all Guards' of ficers in mufti should wear black coats and silk hats when in the neighbor hood of Buckingham Palace seems to point f.o Royal approval of recent at tempts to reinvest the silk hat with its one-time popularity. Many have asserted that the glory of the "topper'" is on the wane; that the coming of the lounge suit and, the popularity of the motor car had brought about, its downfall from shiny pre-eminence. But the "cylinder of civilisation" is re-assert ing itself in its centenary year, and the hatters are rejoicing. Inquiries elicited the statement that more silk hats are being sold to-day than ever before. The demand had been most marked, even bearing in mind that this is the tall hat season. . Professional men have of necessity remained true to the old love. Now it is the turn of the man in the street to adopt conventional headweay once more and prove his deference ...
