SIX SISTERS 475 YEARS OLD [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

SIX SISTERS 475 YEARS OLD | The joint ages of a family of six sis- { ters named Lamelle, living in a little i village near Autun, France, total 475 1 years. Lazaretto is eighty-five, Marie f eighty-three, Mario Lazarette seventy-1 eight, Etiennette and Jeanne, twins, ■ seventy-seven, and Antoinette seven- J ty-five. They are all in perfect health, and look forward to living 100 years each. NOT OX THEIR OWN" The ideal of the future must be a humanism which no moro idealises "the woman on her own" than it ad mires tho isolated man, but allows to each personality and freedom, and links them in a comradeship against the lusts and the brutalities which would destroy them both (says "The Nation").

DEFINING A TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

DEFINING A Mm I Four Law Lords and liW^groijcnt [ counsel were occupied in the^Wmrse of Lords yesterday in an endeavor to ' settle whether boiling: a kettle is or is I not a trade (says the "Daily Neuis" ol November 15). They did not suc | ceed—at leust, their lordships re served judgment without calling upon counsel for the respondent. Lord Hals bury remarking that if they desired ■ to hear them they would notify them to that effect. The respondent yesterday was the occupier and licensee of the Crutched Friar Hotel, John street, Minories. The appellants were . the Metropolitan Water Board, and tho Question at issue was whether the water supply was one for trade or domestic pur poses, in view of the fact that a cater ing- business js carried on at the hotel. One or two posers were put by Lord Halsbury to Mr. Clavell Salter, K.C., who opened for the Water Board, and argued that the catering consti tuted a trade within tho meaning of tho Act.

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR In the heart of Mayfair there re cently died a lady of considerable wealth, who for nearly 20 years had lived the life of a recluse, almost un known to her neighbors. She was Mrs Julia Macdonald, and she led a solitary existence, attended by only one servant, at a house in South street, Park lane. In the same street reside Earl Grey, ICatherine Duchess of Westminster, Sir Samuel Scott. M.P., and many other prominent people, but Mrs Macdonald seldom left her house, and in her lifetime no callers were ever allowed to enter her own particular room. For some time past she had been at tended by a West End medical practi tioner for bronchitis, and her death, -a, natural one. occurred suddenly on Fri day (reports the "Daily Express" of December 12). She was - buried at Ivenaal Green on Wednesday, and her house in South street is now being thoroughly overhauled. Apparently, the y>art reserved for her special use has not been touched for years.. She had only one servant...

TIPPING SYSTEM [Pre-printed from "The Daily Express," of December 23, 1930.] [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

TIPPING SYSTEM I [i're-printed from "The Daily Ex I press," of December 23, 1930.] we regret to announce the death of - Mr Herbert James Piper, the great re former, who, seventeen years ago, brought' about the total abolition of Christmas-boxes in the British Isles. "Writing in these days, when every town has its Piper statue to.commem orate our national deliverance from the tyranny of tips, it is difficult to realise that the great movement had its beginning in a small semi-detached villa at Ealing. Looking back to that historic morn ing of December 26, 1913, one.is able to reconstruct the scene. One sees Piper sitting at his breakfast table, and receiving the maidservant's mes sage: "It you please, sir, the gentle man what empties the dustbin has called to wish you the compliments of the season." Piper (the British Museum has his letter telling the story) had already handed over a shilling, with the curi ous resignation of the tip victims of those days, when he was Inspired with a...

LOST TELEGRAMS POST OFFICE MUDDLE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

LOST TELEGRAMS POST OFFICE MUDDLE Two telegrams concerned in the case have been lost by the Post Office, It was stated at Chatham Police Court yesterday (says "The Daily Mall" of December 20), when Karl Hentschel was charged on remand with sending a telegram to his wife, threatening to kill her. Hentschel is the man who recently gave himself up as a German spy, the prosecution, however, being withdrawn because he might have thought that he was shielded by a promise of protection made to him by another authority to which he had made confidential communications. Richard Saunderson, a clerk in the Accountant General's Department, General Post Office, London, said that the originals of two telegrams which had been asked for could' not be found. Arthur Edgar Kimber, overseer at the Chatham Post Office, stated that he sent the missing telegrams to the secretary at the General Post Office, London, and had not seen them since. The Magistrate: The telegrams were produced to me in this court....
