WOMEN'S PART PLAY THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

WOMEN'S PART PLAY THE GAME. Dr Mary Scharlieb. the Harley street specialist in women's diseases and con sulting gynecologist to the Royal Free Hospital, discusses in the "Daily Mail" the paper read by Dr Claye Shaw on "The Nervous Factor in Woman's Health" at the Institute of Hygiene. I quite agree with Dr Shaw, AMrs Scharlieb said, that it is a great mis take for a woman to be so devoted to sports and outside interests that she hocomes mannish, but I think he will find very few married women who neglect their homes for this reason or who keep up their athletics after mar riage. It is generally the young un married woman who is seeking new outlets for her energy. Dr Shaw says sport Is a bad mar riage market, and that the sporting girl exposes her character too much to the man. I contend that the man should know the g:rl's character as thorougn ly as he can before marriage. If spurts expose bad qualities, then let them be cured. There is a good deal of good in a young man and a young...

PREVENTIVE DETENTION TIME TO CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

PREVENTIVE DETENTION TIME TO CHANGE. The Court of Criminal Appeal- (The C Lord Chief Justice' and Justices Darl- I Ing, Bray, Lush and- Atkin)-was re asked (reports the "Daily Mail" of No vember 18) on behalf of the Crown, to make pronouncement for the guidance of all lesser, tribunals as to the meaning of "preventive detention" of criminals, which is prescribed in a recent Act of Parliament, and to lay down specific ally that there is no rule limiting this preventive detention to only five years as the accompaniment of a sentence on the criminal of three years' renal servi tude. The court has recently been quashing orders for preventive detention on the ground that the subjects had not been proved habitual criminals. One more of these appeals came up yesterday. John Crowley, ordered at Somerset Quarter Sessions three years' penal servitude for burglary and ten years' preventive detention afterwards, appealed .from that part of his conviction which de clared him an habitual criminal...

STREET BATTLE CATTLE-DEALERS FIGHT CADETS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

STREET BATTLE CATTLE-DEALERS FIGHT CADETS One killed and five dangerously and others slightly wounded is the casualty list of an extraordinary fight In Lue beck streets late last night between a party of Rhenish cattle-dealers and young cadets of the Luebeck Navigation School (reports the Berlin correspon dent of the "Daily News" of November 15). The trouble began at the so-called Cavalier Ball in a restaurant. One of the cattle-dealers threatened to throw a glass of beer at one of the Naviga tion students. The insult was preven ted by the landlord, but the students and some Luebeck rowdies whp joined them waylaid the cattle-dealers and their friends outside, and a regular fight began. Fists, decanters, sticks, beer-glasses, and finally long knives came into play. Suddenly one of the Navigation stu dents named Vokan screamed, and tell lifeless. The knife of one of his op ponents had pierced his heart. His scream and fall passed apparently un noticed, and the parties continued fighti...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THINGS CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

THINGS CHANGE. Those of us who have not the luck to live in those favored districts where the poession of a few acres in the vicinity of water channel gives the owner a luxurious living, or even., wealth, can hardly understand how in the irrigated districts the new order of things is causing endless change. One of the old order of farmers, who made a com fortable competence by growing wheat, found himself constrained three or four years ago to sell the bulk of his land to the Government for irrigation pur poses, but reserved his home block of 150 acres on whicn to pass the remaind er of his days. Now he tells me he has been practically forced to sell even this, not through lack of. means, but simply because he feels ashamed to go on with his old-fashioned wheat culti vatioon n Uis.small lot while surround ed by the new irrigation farmers. He does not care to learn the new system, holding he is too old a dog to be taught new tricks. So he is now breaking up a home he formed 40 years ...

DOMESTIC REVOLUTION WIFE'S CLAIM TO RESIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

DOMESTIC REVOLUTION WVIFE'S CLAIM TO R?h?SIDENCE. A wife asked the Chancery Court (Mr Justice Warring-ton) to declare that the house was now hers in which she and her husband had lived for 27 years after their marriage which took place in 1853 (reports the "Daily Mail," November 18). The husband made a corresponding claim on his own behalf. Mir H. Terrell, K.C. (with him Mr .Davey), said that the plaintiff in the action was 'Mr Frederick Lucas, and the residence in question was 37, Park House street, Camberwell. Mr Lucas was the maker of gauge rules which were used by Custom House officers and publicans in gauging spirits, etc. It was a lucrative business, and :Mrs Lucas managed the financial part. The house was purchased in 1907 with money mainly withdrawn from depo sits in the Post Office Savings Bank in the name of the wife. The conveyance was taken in the wffe's name, and the house had remained in her name. For some reason unknown to counsel the wife left her husband in 1910. Sh...

THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. At the Kybybolite Branch of the South Australian" Agriculture Bureau Mr W. J. Colebatch, B.Sc., Agric,. M.R.C.V.S. (Superintendent of -Agricul ture in the South-East), gave a prac tical demonstration on. the points of a horse. Most farmers, he said, possess a fair knowledge of the general charac teristics to be looked for in a horse of good qualilty,but few would care to un dertake the responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to officiate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a Lorse would be brought under the searchlight of public criticism. This may be duo to natural reluctance to publicity or to a want of confidi''ie, which may be attributed in some cases to a want of method or system in the process of judging. No .matter what the circumstances may be-whether the examination be made in the show ring or sale yard, the aim should be to adopt some definite and thorough system of working. Once adopted, the method should, as far as...

MR STANLEY HOUGHTON LANCASHIRE PLAYWRIGHT DIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

lMR STANLEY HOUHlITON LANCASHIRE PLAYWRIGHT DIES. Death has put an end at the tragically early age of.32 to the career of one of the brightest and most capable of the younger British dramatists. Mr Stanley Houghton. author of "Hindle Wakes" antl "The Younger Generation," died yesterday morning at his home in Manchester, after seve ral months of ill-health (says "The Daily Express" of December 12). He was operated on for appendicitis in July, and following thereon further serious internal complications develop ed. - Mr Houghton was one of the Man chester school of dramatists, of whom it has been said that they saw modern drama as "gloom with a Lan cashire accent." He had none of the proverbial early ill-luck of the dramatist. His first one act play was accepted at once for pro duction by Miss Horniman, and two four-act plays which followed were also accepted without hesitation by the same astute manager. One of these was "The Younger Generation," and later, when "Hindle Wakes" was pr...

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

PARSONS AND IIUNTINi VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. In dedicating on Sunday at MIor Monkton Church a memorial window to the late Rev. Charles Slingsby, who was killed wvhile hunting, the Arch bishop of York defended the associa tion between hunting and the lihe f the professing Christian (says the "Daily News" of November 18). He would be a very bold man, raid the Archbishop, 'who would argue that hunting was so cruel that it was abso lutely wrong. "It Is very difficult to express an opinion," said Mr James Buckland, when seen on the subject by a " Daily News" representative. "The advocates of the sport argue that it brings a great deal of money into the country, and, again, the existence of the fox depends largely-upon it. It is a question whe ther It is better that the fox should he shot by the farmers on sight or bred for hunting purposes." If hunting were to cease, in a few yeais the fox would be exterminated. Mr Bucklland said he was acquainted with a charming clergyman who hunted...

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914

OVERWORKED NU?SS LONG HOURS A large number of letters lihave been received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked and under paid hospital nurses. The following is typical of many: As a certificated nurse- with experi ence both of London and of provincial hospitals, let me thank you for taking up the hard case of the nurses gen erally. Few persons really realise what nurses' hours are. The night work is, as a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holidays bring no respite, The aproaching Christmas holidays mean to nurses only extra work and extra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards. It is really a horrible time, so far as they are concerned. At one hospital I was in at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the patients were over. But, alas! every one - doctors and nurses alike - was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot understand why one Gover...
