MR ROGER WALLACE The public examination of Mr Roger Wallace, K.C., regarding his failure was held yesterday in the Court of Bank ruptcy (says "The Daily Mail" of De cember 1"). He said he began business as a chemical merchant many years ago. The year 1S97 was disastrous, and his liabilities reached £150,000.

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L C.C. tramcars are "the latest thins". A six months' experiment with them on tramcars running from the Ham mersmith depot is recommended by tho Highways Committee of tho L.C.C. Tile machines are to be fitted to the upper "saloon" decks. The proposal comes from a Mr A. H. Vincent, who Is pre pared to pay a rent at the rate of JC 2/10/ per car each year. If the experiment is a success and tho roof-covered cars over the tramway system generally are fitted with these boxes, the Highways Committee thinks that a revenue of nearly £4000 would be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add, "the supply in the Council's tramcars of cheap and wholesome chocolate would confer' a considerable benefit upon the passengers using* the tramways" particularly in the case of the all-night cars and tlie workmen's services. From automatic machines for choco late (says "The Dally News") It seems but an easy and natural ste...

Hentschel is the man who recently gave himself up as a German spy, the prosecution, however, being withdrawn because he might have thought that he was shielded by a promise of protection made to him by another authority to which ho had made confidential communications. Kichard Saunderson, a clerk in the Accountant General's Department, General Post Oilice, London, said that the originals of two telegrams which had been asked for could not be found. Arthur Edgar Kimber, overseer at the Chatham Post Ofllce, stated that he sent the missing telegrams to the secretary nt the General Post Oflice. London, and had not seen them since.

MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schillor In an article in the January "Hibbert Jour nal" says: THE FAMILY The family is the only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has .attractiveness enough to bind the individual's caprice to travel in regular orbits, and lo build up an or derly society out of the gravitation of social units. It Is a successful mech anism just bocauso It Is so much more than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and of the factory, and of tho Church, though all these institutions have sometimes grown Into unnatural forms which In jure and repudiate their origin. "1 remember that when I was an ?undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, tho great Master of Balliol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on a great var iety of theories, w...

"Mother's a little tired and excitod." In that way she excused lierueli from accompanying him from the room.

But. the wedding-party itself was composed only of the family und the nurse-companion who had arrived that ; morning to replace Queenie. j One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. I Price, who had spent ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks wc-rc ! Hushed hectically, and she shed tears j at frequent intervals.
