CHILD DOES-THINGS BACKWARDS MISPLACED HEART AND BRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 28 February 1914

CHILD DOES-THINGS BACKWARDS MISPLACED HEART AND Till AIX. After recent disclosures of start lingly Unusual children who write ami see thing's upside down (says the "Daily News") now comes the story of a twelve-year-old Birmingham girl who has had an uncontrollable impulse to "do things backwards." Her education has made little pro gress owing to this strange perverse . ness. which has sometimes impelled her to write from right to left. The doctors conjectured that there was some physiological abnormality, and the X rays have now disclosed the secret of the child's eccentricities. When the rava were applied it was found that the heart was on the right side of the body, and that other or gans. including the brain, were mis placed.

PRISON PANTOMIME [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 28 February 1914

PRISON PANTOMIME Strolling across the yard at Chelms ford Gaol (says the London "Evening News") a man decently dressed In on overcoat and bowler hat requested the warder to open the gates for him, "as he had finished repairing the "organ." The warder remarked carefully, "What's your name?" turning to the visitors' book. "Griffin," said the man who had finished repairing the organ. But "Grif fin" was a name which did not seem to have been entered, and the warder thought he would keep the gates closed for the moment. In the meantime to telephoned to the ollice, and the quick arrival of officials showed that his caution was justified. "Griffin" was at once recognised as ono of the prisoners. It was found that he had slipped away unobserved during exercise, *nd passing through the kitchen garden, entered the probation warders' quar ters. There he had changed his clothes -and p.lso secured a gold watch chain.

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 28 February 1914

SHORT SENTENCES BILL. TO DIMINISH THEM. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma gistrates' Club (says 'The Daily Mows" of December 5). Mr M'Kenna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. He expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with | the approval of both recognised par ties, but oven with the approval of the recognised cranks. (Laughter). They hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to deduce the num ber of prisoners. "Wo hope," he continued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should be avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to the victim of them, and they don't protect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline ami the conditions of work which he would learn-useful work would enable ...

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 28 February 1914

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN" BUSINESS Is tho psychic sense more developed In Americans than in Englishmen The question is raised by tho follow ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Hainp stead) to tho editor of "Tho Express": I have seen Mr G. K. Chesterton's play "Music," and I am bound to tid init that It Interested and amused me as much as anything I have seen for years. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, I have a strong objection to raise. Tho play deals with a professional con jurer who. in addition to his trade, is well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, tho conjurer is in love with a lady. Tho fly in the oint ment is tlio lady's brother, who repre sents all that is crass, cheeky, Ignor ant and bumptious, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so im pervious in regard to spiritual matters is sak'^to be that ho has been liv...
