MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 21 February 1914
MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller In an article in the.January "Hibbert Jour nal" says:— THE FAMILY The family is the only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to bind the individual's caprice to travel in regular orbits, and to build up an or derly society out of the gravitation of Bocial units. It is a successful mech anism just because it is so much more j than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and j economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and of the factory, and of the Church, though all these institutions have sometimes grown into unnatural forms which in jure and repudiate their origin. "I remember that when I was an undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, the great Master of Balliol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on a great var iety of theories...

Hyde, of 26 Evelyn street, 1 Melbourne, Vic toria, who writes:— ,From a Photo. " Just a few lines in reference to your Dr Morae's Indian Root Pills as a medicine. During the past two years I suffered from sick headaches and neuralgia, and periodic biliousness. In spite of dieting and medi cal advice, I was never well. I used to dread the days and nights of nervous agony, and only women who have suf fered from sick headaches know what those nights were.

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.

FINGER-PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 21 February 1914
FINGERPRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. English detectives are astonished by the fact that, though the Paris police were in possession of an Infallible clue, in the form of a finger-print on the glass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stole "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (says "The Daily Mail" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police take finger-prints, they depend chifefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If they arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the chief form of identification; the ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of -secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that 'print has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who he is...

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 21 February 1914
CHAPTER XIV. 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 of the family and the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked trail and excited. Her wan cheeks "were flushed hectically, and she shed tears at frequent intervals. The Ibride and her tether had not yet arrived, and Mi chael' Thorne and his best man had only just taken their place at the al tar rails. The nurse companion was seated 'beside Mrs. Price; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other side of her mother. Next to her was Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too "big for him. He looked as if he "would hav...
CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 21 February 1914
CHAPTER XIII. - After Thame's departure a silence fell on the family, during which. Mr. Price, absent-mindedly, drained the dregs of the champagne bottle into the gladd that had done duty for the (bro ken one. Queenie had not left her place beside her mother. Before quit ting the room, Thome had crossed to her and again Mssed her. It was the eve of their wedding ana duly the faro ily were present. On the surface- he had acted as if he counted himself al ready a member of the family. On the surface—to an uninitiated spectator it would have appeared homely, human and unaffected. In reality, that kiss was almost an act of revenge. She had risen to her feet. She had not winced. She had not averted her lips. "Good-night, Michael!" she had said. "Mother's a little tired and excited." In that way she excused herselr from accompanying him from the room. "Mother," she said, breaking the si lence that followed his .exit, "it's time you went to 'bed. I'm going to tuck you up." She gave Mrs. Pr...

By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER Xn.—Continued. "Come out—and have a drink!" re peated Mr. Gordon Price, still mum bling. He, too, like Michael Thorne, had broken out into a perspiration. "We must talk it over—pull ourselves together—if I have erred, it has been for Queenie—for my che-ild's sake!" But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension he would be entitled to as Michael's father-in-law, to say no thing of useful information re copper. No marriage, no pension, no comfort alble old age. Tad that telegram reached Queenie, there -would have been no marriage on the morrow. Both men knew that. Even now "Come outside!" whispered Thome. "Drink—no—you've had too much al ready!" They went out together, Mr. Price hatless. Thome's car stood at the door, Dut they did not enter it, crossing over to the prom nade. "You share the responsibility of this!" said Thorne. "Yes—as her father," mumbled the other m...
COSTLY ROYAL HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 21 February 1914
COSTLY ROYAL HABITS The Bavarian Finance Minister, in supporting a motion for the increase of the - Bavarian King's Civil list to £270,000, observed, according to Dr !Mullermeiningen, who opposed the .vote (say£ the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Mail"), that the expenses, of the royal shoots were not excessive, and : it was better that royalty should shoot and hunt than run after Venus, which was still a more expensive oc cupation. . Dr Mullermeiningen pro tested against the .assumption that royalty must have expensive habits; and that it is better to choose the less of two evils- "These are hard times for everybody," he declared, "and the Court must be sparing too."
