DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEGGING [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS , appointments go begging The popular supposition that medi cine is an overcrowded profession is being exploded. The real truth is that there is an extraordinary shortage of doctors at the present moment .and men cannot be found willing to accent public appointments. So serious has the question become that at the opening of the next parlia mentary session a demand will ho pressed for the appointment of a de partmental committee or a r> Commission to inquire into the whole question of the registration ot the medical service of the country. Appointments which a little over n year ago would have brought fiftv an plicants, have been advertised for six or eight months in the meriinal - nals without bringing a sinzrle renlv. in spito of the fact that the sainr!o« have been increased by 100 per cent (says "The Daily Express"). Dr Cox, tho medical secretarv of British Medical Association, stnfo* yesterday that ho ascribed the age to the enormous increase of thrown on t...

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing^ and evidently authentic, story comes from Baltimore about a family servant, says 'the New York "Nation." She came from Germany twenty seven years ago, lias Uvea with one Baltimore family over since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady savins. Particulars as to wages are wanting:, but It is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated In the household In which she lived. It 13 not Improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise In the matter of dress. But It is lo bo noted at once that there is nothing in the least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of I comfort or " silt-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand-' ard of appearance as to clothing, could ...

Wo have received further despatches by mail from Mr Alan Ostler (say® "Tho Express" of December 0) supple menting the dramatic message dated November 23 published yesterday, sent from Gibcli by runners across Somali land and cabled from Aden. Yesterday's remarkable story, in which Mr Ostler described how ho ex pelled a band of armed Abyssinian raid ers who were robbing and beating" Bri tish tribesmen, proves that tho Abys slnians, as well as tho followers of tho Mad Mullah, are in the habit of raidirfg tho friendly tribes in British territory who have been left without protection by the British Government.

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

PEARLS MATCH "WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS The prominence given to pearls by the proceedings In connection with the theft of Mr Max Mayer's necklace, which he valued at £140,000, has called attention to the immense sums paid for these gems. Pearls are now the most fashionable Jewels, and women buyers take caro to secure a shade to match their complexion (according to "The Dally Mall").. ' "Dark or yellow pearls," said Mr Mayer, "become dark women, while light pearls are worn to better advan tage by women of fair complexion. In recent years the demand for pearls has Increased because the oetentattousnesK of diamonds and rubles often offends the tuste. A woman can easily wear £100,000 worth of pearls in excellent taste, but diamonds worth £20,000 would bo very obtnustlve." THREE GOOD PEARLS Mr Mayer said that so fur as he know his famous necklace was the most valuable In existence, but it was pos sible that necklaces bought for a far less sum ten or fifteen years ago were now worth more than h...

MAGIC WAND ALIIAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

MAGIC WAND ALIIAMBRA MUSICAL' DIRECTOR. The magic wand—the conductor's baton—at the Alhambra is in new hands (says the Westminster Ga zette"). The magician is Mr John An sell. who for seven years has been conductor for Mr Cyril. Maude and latterly with Mr Louis Meyer at the Strand Theatre, and has climbed to the conductor's desk from a subordin ate place in the orchestra. When, last Saturday afternoon (De cember 10), Mr Ansell assumed his new duties, he conducted the Alham bra orchestra and generally took con trol of Alhambra revue and ballet for the first time. But the only re spect in which Alhambra habitues could observe any difference from normal happenings was that the prin cipals made a point of bowing nicely —and quite noticeably—to the con ductor upon entering the stage. By the middle of this week even the most observant of critics might have supposed that Mr Ansell had spent his life conducting at the Aihambra. For he commenced with a very great advantage, having the techni...

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. The Stalntondalo foxhounds have tho roputatlon of being tho oldest pack in the country. 5t ia a claim which docs not go unchallenged, even in York shire, but it rests on tho authentic ground that a charter was granted by tho Norman King Stephen in the 12th century to somo monks in the monast ery of Stalntondalo to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on tho moors between that place and Scarborough. "I cannot vouch for this remoto an tiquity," said Mr I-Ialllday Huggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who, as sec retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). "The farthest wo can go back in actual re cords is tho memory of an old man of 86, who remembers his grandfaher hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to tho beginning of tho nineteenth century, and there is a song, written In 1811, which commem morates a famous run of that year, so that the hunt can certainly boast a re spectable ago. It is a farmers' hunt first and fo...

PURE WATER FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 February 1914

PURE VVATER FOR COWS. Pure water for cotvb Is as import ant in milk production bb ■ the food they eat. Much has been -written concerning -the rations for dairy cows, hut not so much about the water the cow drinks and its- rela tion to pure milk and the health of the animal. The dairy cow needs an abundant supply, of pure water, not only as an aid to digestion and other •bodily needs, 'but to produce her nor mal supply of milk. If the cows do not get enough water, the milk flow will be decreased, just as surely as if they did not get enough food. There are various reasons why water consumed' by dairy cows should be pure. In the first place* pure water promotes the health of the animals. Cowb which are compelled to drink impure water, usually fall away rapidly. Impure .water contains the ova of-dangerous parasites. These parasites attack , all kinds of 'farm animals that drink water containing the ova. The dangerous thing is that tho cause of'the Iobs of animals by parasites is unsusp...

CHAPTER XIV. I The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered outside, and a few had entered. A wedding, like a funeral, has a fascina tion for some, though they have no personal knowledge of those concern ed. But the wedding-party Itself was composed only o£ the family and the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufllced for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent ten pounds ta advantage on her clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks were flushed hectically, and she shed tears at frequent intervals. The ibrlde and her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thome and his best man had only just taken their place at the al tar rails. The nurse companion was seated beside Mrs. Pnice; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other side of her mother. Next to her Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too, big for him. He looked as if he would have welcom...
