THE WIND OF HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 21 March 1914
THE WIND OF HOPE (By James Douglas, in "The Daily News and Loader.") 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 thero 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 the chilly merge of the grey December sea. Jiy mood was cold and dark. The remembrance of suffer ing lay heavy on my mind. I had no strength of joy In mo to struggle with tho harpies of gloom tearing at my heart. Suddenly I felt on my face a iittlo breeze blowing olf the waves. It was like tho caress of an angel. There was something animate in its poignant passion of tenderness. It brought me the message of miles of strong salt sea. H set every ncrvo tingling and shud dering with delighted life. As the little wind from the sea played ...
TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY APPARITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 21 March 1914
TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY .APPARITIONS. .By a "Citizen" in "The Daily Tele graph.") 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, the 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. Tho tide lapping: the river wharves, unseen though but a few yards distant, the occasional stir of the shipping, and the inexplicable sounds of a great city add to the mysteries of tho night. This should be a wracking place for nerves. Eight centuries of England's story aro isolated within the Tower's encircling walls. If any s'jb- ] stance there be in the belief that dis tracted ghosts revisit the scenes of their great sorrows, assuredly upon no spot on earth do they congregate mo...

Sporting. CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 28 March 1914
spoiling. CYCLING. E. Mayman. a Melbourne motor cyclist, last Saturday, recorded a fast half mile on the road—from a flying start he negotiated the 880 yards in 26-1/f) sec. (eqnal to 6S.7 xnilea an hour) which equals the re cent record established by E. E. Koster in Adelaide. Maymen rode a 3i h.p. Dunlop shod "Triumph" stripped of guards, etc. His ride was officially timed and was accom plished on a straightaway asphalted Toad acrosB the North Melbourne Swamp and like the recent Adelaide records was only ridden in on&lt;^ di rection. The Motor Cycle Clubs ■who undertake to time and check rides of this description should en deavor to follow tbe ruling of the International Records Association, of Europe, which has decreed that all motor records up to a mile inu&t be ridden in opposite directions, and the mean time taken. This is to equalise any advantage gained from a favorable wind or gradient, and is a very fair condition. Only recent ly Daray's great drive at Osten...

OFF THE EARTH! NOVICU'S ADVENTURU ON SKI. (By a special correspondent in "The Daily News and Leader"). ,, 4 soo» learn that winter sporL in mo Alps means really ski-ing. Tho skaters aro a small and artistic class apart. Toboganning is a healthy and vivacious sport tor children and those who arc child-hearted. Sleighing, v/cll .wrapped up in furs, with plumed horses and bolls a-Jingle, is for rieli Germans. Uob-sloighing is excellent communal fun, requiring considerable skill for such a run as tho full length of the Cresta. But skl-ing is for thoso who aro young and adventurous, who love to range on mountain slopes instead &lt;:f a rink behind tho hotel, and who are sound in wind and limb. Tho man who is just beginning to wonder whether he is too old at forty and is a nowcomer looks upon the young ann ruddy ski-ers at the hotel as an elderly farmer regards Hamel at Hendon. Ah! new blood, supple limbs, and. exquisite Bkill! Tho lucky young rogues! He merely listens with Intere...
