ABOUT HATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 9 October 1907
ABOUT BATS. Dr. Dabbs, in 'My Journal' for AiiffU8t, chats pleasantly, among other' things, on. hats. He tells, for Instance tbat In 1804, by the State 24 George III. (chap. 51), uats were bo. far taxed that all retailers had to take out au annual license of 40s value In London and 5s elsewhere. And there was an extra tax on hats sold; a pro rata tax— as high as 26 for a 12s hat! And in 1798 hats bad to be stamped on the lining under a penalty of L10. Imported hats were taxed heavily; no less than 21b each In the reign of Elizabeth, on Sundays and holidays every person over seven years of age had to wear a headcover ing under a penalty of about (in oar money) 3d. Dr. Dabbs cannot find that we had Uats till about 1510, or silk hats till 1820. Our export in hate has been enormous. The cblmney-pot Is so called because in Germany only the sweeps wear them.

THE LEAST KNOWN CITY CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 9 October 1907
THE MEAST KNOWN CITx* CHURCH. St Battholoniew-the-Less, SmlthfleH of which the vicarage has been vacated. is little known even to the lear.ied, and frequently eonfuaed With a famous neighboring namesake. Since monastic tiroes thlg church has served as a chape for St Bartholonvew's Hospital. The oU tomer remains; but the Interior has been remodelled beyond recognition. There is a tnwet here erected In memory of his wife by Sir Thomas BoJley, tbs founder of the Bodleian Library at Ox ford. Among many eminent personages buried at St. Bartholomen-tlteLess were John Shirley, who, according to Stow, 'painfully collected the works of Geoffrey Chaucer and other 'earned writers, which works he wrote In s. ndry volumes for posterity,' and James ' Heath, whose '-Chronicle of the Civil Wars' is considered by Carlyle as 'littte : other than a tenebrinc book.'

DOCTORS' FAT. SWEATING SOCIETIES. On this very vexed question the London ' Daily News' writes :— ?' Needless to say the doctors agreo with' their latest sj.o'icsman, Dr. Arthur Newsholmc, who tells tho British Mtdical Association that Uio profession is sweated by friendly societies, and in oib:r ways ofUn , badly paid. Much of the doctor's ! work is no doubt very exacting to ' brain nr.d body, though wo may bo permitted to add that much is also agreeable, and easy mough. Tho agreeable work, such cs Hut of at ter.dns the e*ery-day invalids of a ! fashionable practice tends to be very well paid, while thj more seriouj work of saving lives dangra-ously threatened has a tendency to fall into thj class of the ill-paid. Thore are practices almost cnt.ri.'ly plain- I sailing and lucrative, ami others in : which no single plum occurs. But, after all, the some may bo said of almost any other occupation, including tho other professions. Dr. Salter makes out no special case for the State payme...

To the Editor of Thk Pictok Post. Sir; — As Sir William Lyne has stated that the proposed tariff was based upon tlie reoommendations of the Protectionist members of the Tariff Commission, it is as well that the public should know what sort of inquiry this Commission made into the various items. A duty of 25 per cent, has been imposed upon British wire netting, and 30 per cent.- on foreign wire netting. The amount of investigation into the subject is contained in tbe Progress lteport No.- 9, Section XLII, page. 47 (copy of which is attached). From this it will be seen that two peivous only were called upon to give any evidence, one, representing the Wire Netting Works' Union, demanding a duty, and tlie other, speaking as -i user of wire netting, taking 'iHiptuAaay iview. . On : iliis imotiiil^f evidence a ,drfty has been imposed anionniing to some where near flSO.OOOa year, based upon the imports for 1906.
