MAGIC AND TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

MAGIC AND TRADE At the Japan Society lasL evening Dr. W. T>. Mild burgh,, a member of the council, read a paper entitled "Japanese Popular Magic connected with Agriculture and Trade (says the "Daily Telegraph" of December 11). Mr Henri IJ. Joly presided, and there was a large and appreciative gather ing of members of the society. Dr. Hildburgli detailed the numer ous charms used and customs prac tised by the Japanese in connection with the weather for protecting crops, for securing prosperity in trade, and for obtaining immunity from lire and thieves. With an incantation rods or skewers were planted in the ground for the protection of the property and to draw destruction down upon any body who should attempt to take wrongful possession of it. A charm written on a piece of paper where a wild animal might pass was con sidered likely to turn into a piece of string and catch the animal. A wheel of cardboard and straws with suspended figures was thought to bring prosperity and avert e...

ZOO CUBS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

ZOO CUBS The London Zoo lias little luck with its youngsters "born in the gardens" (says the "Dailv News" of November 3)., Sam anil Barbara, the Polar hears, were presented-Cor the seventh year in succession-with two babies on Friday last, but have lost them as usual. This year the officials determined that the youngsters should not be left to their father's large and casual feet, nor to their callous mother. She is worse than the father, by far. The /irst cub to these unnatural parents was born in 1907. The father killed it. Since then the youngsters have died each year within a few days of birth. This year preparations were made to give the cubs every chance. Like all bear babies, they are remark ably small, no larger than dog pup pies. in fact. Barbara's Polar idea is that what her children want is plenty of cold open air and wet concrete, and she gives it to them. Last Friday the cubs were rescued at birth and put into a warm basket with hot Water bottles. A lady who has much sk...

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER The Marquis of Salisbury, who pre sided last evening at the annual meet ing of the Personal Service Associa tion (says the "Westminster Gazette" of December 12), held at the Portinan Rooms, apologised for the- absence of Mrs. Asquith, his colleague in Lhe presidency, who was absent for the lirst time from the annual gathering of the association. They had every reason to be satis lied, said the chairman, with the work of the year. They had planted that plant, and it was flourishing-not by any great growth, but by a steady growth which belongs to things that succeed. The position of the associa tion in that work reminded him of the ordinary broker. There were any number of enterprises which needed energy to make them succeed, and there was a large number of men and women anxious to do something for their fellow men and women; but until that' association came into existence they could never bring them into relationship. A warm welcome was g...

BRIBERY ALLEGED FOOTBALL. INCIDENT ' Many prominent footballers, were in court -yesterday, when the Smethwick magistrates investigated the charge against Pascoe Bioletti of attempting to bribe Jesse Pennington, the captain of tho West Bromwicli Albion Football Club, to lose or draw a- match with Everton' (says "The' Daily Express" 011 December 12). Mr Chapman said he had hoped to be able to advise his client to e'e:-t for the case to be dealt with summarily, but from certain matters that had come to his knowledge it would be bet ter for the case to go for tria'. Mr J. S. Sharpe outlined the charge, and remarked that the pro editors were the Albioh Club,, supported by the Football Association. "The charge," he said, "is a serious one, and Bioletti, if convicted, is liable to two years' imprisonment, or a line of £500, or both. "On November 28, tho eve of the match between West Bromwich Albion and Everton, Mr Jesse Pennington re ceived, at The Hawthorns, a visit from a mysterious stra...

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. Notwithstanding the vogue of soured milk, there is really no specific antidote to old age, says a great Lon don physician in the "Daily Mail" ot November 2G. "Now and again a very old man attributes his length of days to his abstemiousness. He has never smoked or consumed alcohol, and he has been stringently abstem ious with regard to solid food. "But then another centenarian tells us that he has eaten and drunk heart ily all his life and never denied him self any pleasure. People practise all sorts of things, avoiding salt, eat ing cheese, drinking milk, drinking nothing but water, eating pounds of grapes or other fruits, living on vege tables or nuts; but so far as a medi cal man can see, and he sees all sorts and conditions of men, no particular diet or odd way of living has any in fluence in prolonging life. AVERAGE PEOPLE. "T Epeak, of. .course, with regard to average hfeal'thy people. Those dis eased; in any Svay must observe cer tain strict rules appropr...

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. Perugia's pretence that he stole the "Gioconda" from tho Louvre with a view to restoring 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). Ho does not seem to know that tlio "Gioconda" happens just to be one of tho 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 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 tho theft seems to bo proved by the fact that before he carried off the pic ture he collected the names of those who he thought might bo 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 2S, 1910, that is to. say, nine months before tho theft...

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE "I 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, but so finely and sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is blessed with one of the noblest peasantries in the world, point the evils which "Tile 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 oneself again in this romantic land, and In one day we have already seen so much | that it seems long since we left home! The crossing was horrid in every way, but we had some quiet hours in smooth water before we arrived in tho early morning, and Stavanger with its clean, many-colored wooden houses rising out of the still fjord, and the encircling mountains stealing out of the morning mist restored one.

TAXI=CAB IN FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

TAXI-CAB IN FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. The Parisian taxi driver is a peeu "ar individual, says "The- Motor." \\ liile he bears the ear-marks o£ his brethren in other great cities, lie has many characteristics all his own. He can be as ferocious as an Apache or as docile as a lamb-according; to his mood. but always he is a dare devil, taking chances at which an auto mobile race-driver would falter. Upon entering a French taxicab. you usually reach your destination safely, but have many a thrill on the way. The pilot of the Parisian cab pos sesses a fund of general information, providing you speak his language and have silvered his palm. He knows no thing if you are a stranger and have neglected to "come across." He is as gai rulous as a politician or as dumb as an oyster ; .it depends on the way you treat him. There are no half-baked emotions in his makeup. This particular class of taxi man can come closer to running down a pedes trian or crashing into a vehicle, with out hitting eit...

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE TRAINERS AT A PROTEST MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE TRAINERS AT A PROTEST MEET ING. A little group of a dozen professional animal trainers had a front seat at a public meeting last night at the Ken sington Town Hall (reports "The Daily News" of December 16). The meeting was called to protest against cruelties to performing animals. The trainers' spokesmen were "Captain" Woodward, who trains dogs. Mr Cunninghame-Gruham, who pre sided over the early part of the meet ing, declared that exhibitions of per forming animals were debasing alike for the trainer and for the public. There was nothing exhilarating or soul-raising in seeing an elephant standing on its head, or dogs and cats firing cannon. He urged people to attend such shows and hiss. -Sometimes hissing was a sacred duty. Messages of sympathy were lead from Miss Lind-af-Hageby. Archdeacon Wilberforce, Lord MVwiey, Mr Percy Illingworth, M.P., and Mr Bernard Shaw. . Mr-John Galsworthy said he had a oommonsense which told liim that wild animals were happier in f...

INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. Nobody likes influenza. It lias not a friend in the world, and every country trios to make o'lt that the wretched thing is a native of some other country. Tn Russia it is called Siberian fever, and in Siberia Chinese fever. In France it lias been called Spanish catarrh, and Spain throws it back as Russian fever. Dr. Arthur F. Hopkirk gives some interesting lists pf the names It has been called in a hook on "Influenza." The term influenza came to he gener ally applied in England to the disease which was successively known as "the new acquayntance," "the gentle cor rection," "the new delight," and "the knock-me-down fever" by a mistake. Eighteenth century Italian writers, says Dr. Hopkirk, spoke of "una in fluenza di freddo" (influence of cold), and English physicians, mistaking the word influenza for the name of the disease itself, used it. The same term is also used in Ger many, where a host of dialect names still prevail, such as lightning catarrh and fo...

DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE One of the loveliest stretches of English scenery within range of Lon don is being robbed of both its beauty and use with such speed and certainty that local feeling is coming to a pitch of high irritation- and private pro tests are being made'(writes the spe-' cial . correspondent of "The Dally Mail"). The question is much more than local. By the deliberate choice of a new landlord (1) Some land which produced food, both corn and milk, is put out of cul tivation, is from a national point of view made barren. (2) A famous beauty spot is de prived of its native charm and with drawn from the use of the neighbors and a wider public who, delighted to walk there. Something has been already heard of the destruction of farms and farm buildings and of the making of a deer forest across the wild and rich stretch of country below Hind head and be tween Haslemere and Witley, on the estate recently bought by Lord Pirrie, one of the first Peers creatcd by the pre...

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

TIIE STREET CBEANER A paper having- said that "To reiog nise the supremacy of the street cleaner would bo to usher in the reign of chaos," "The Daily Herald" takes ii to task and says:-"Now, that jus! brings us very close to the root of tin matter. 'Supremacy' is indeed t!u wrong word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual economy he is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. We may thus re-state the proposition: 'To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity.'

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately refuses to "thrive" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Daily News" of December 9). From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or reasons can be assigned. I Unfortunately the. truth more or i less generally remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, handicapped by the fact of not thriv [ ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate ; but undeniable, that the child who I does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal, natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree-that is, if we give him a chance. But our methods of cloth ing, feeding, and "managing" our off spring detract from the health and joy of life of far too many of them In this generation at least. GOOD AS HIS CHEST A medical inspector of schools told me the ...

GIPSIES' STRIKE COPPEHS.MITHS DISSATISFIED. The latest strike is that, or perform ing gipsies. For the past month twelve of the gipsy coppersmiths who attracted at tention when they arrived in London recently from Eastern Europe and set tled for a time in Ilford, have been ap pearing in a performance at the Caba ret Theatre Club at Heddon street, and they are announced to take part in a gipsy play there 011 the 20th (states "The Daily News' of December 2!!). Jura Filipoft', the picturesque chief, when interviewed 011 the subject, said that his tribe are striking for increased wages. Ho explained in French that his twelve people only received 30/ a night, and as they have to return home at five o'clock in the morning by taxi cab their net gain works out at only about 2/ each. "We strike,' he added in English, for an eating wage. We cannot eat on 2/ a day three nights a week."

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") jr. France lias been hailed among- us ns a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful aiul unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would lie be, any thing1 so solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them, or around them: for he has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or. authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or realise anyone or any thing in art-save in relation to him self. to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITERARY GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, M. France is a pure egotis...

PRESENTATION BY THE TUNGAMAH CROQUET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

PRESENTATION BY THE TUNGAMAH         CROQUET CLUB Not to be outvied by the masculine gender in speeding a parting guest in a practical manner, the members of the Tungamah Croquet Club extended a send-off to Mrs Hall on Wednesday afternoon of last week. The function took place at the club's court, and to further celebrate the day a " compli- mentary " match was played with the Yarrawonga club. A number of leading townspeople was also present. When afternoon tea had been dis- pensed, the president of the club (Mr. T. Allatt, J.P.), on behalf of the members, referred in well-chosen terms to the pending departure of Mrs Hall. On more than one occasion since the club was formed they had foregathered to bid farewell to members leaving the district ; but he could conscien- tiously say that the departure of Mrs. Hall was the greatest and most re- grettable severance the club had yet undergone. (Applause.) Personally he was sincerely sorry ...

DEPARTURE OF MRS W. HALL AN ESTEEMED RESIDENT OF LONG STANDING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 February 1914

DEPARTURE OF MRS W. HALL AN ESTEEMED RESIDENT OF LONG STANDING. It is generally agreed that misfor- tune whenever it puts in an appear- ance, inflicts more than one visit in quick succession upon those it singles out for observation, be it individually or collectively as a community. This impression gained added force last week. The sterner sex had but just rid itself of the enervating " recovery" following the Fairley banquet, when attention was directed to another public misfortune — the early departure of Mrs Hall from the township, and who, subsequently, is to be followed by her genial partner in life. The names of Mr and Mrs Hall are as familiar as household words in local circles. For a long period of years — (Mrs Hall for over twenty and Mr Hall for over thirty) — they have been associated with this township in all its changing moods, practically watch- ing it merge from the chrysallis stage through the palmy days of its pros- perity and onward to its present normal status.
