BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS Those who attended yesterday morn ing's sitting at the St. Paul's Girlas School. Hammersmith. of the Vacation Conference on Musical Education (says "~The Daily Telegraph" of January 8). saw and heard a remarkable demon atratlon. It was given by a group of boy and girl pupils from the Royal Normal College for the Blind. under the direction of Mr Horace Watling. one of the professors, himself deprived of! sight, at that famous institution. Primarily, the performance of these blind: Juveniles was intended to Illus trate a lecture by Miss Nancy Gllford on "The Creative Faculty in the Pupil: How to Make Use of it as a Valuable !Agent in Teaching."

It showed the marvellous Intensification. as it were, of' the faculty of hearing, and the ex tremo sensitiveness to niceties of rhythm and to tonal distinctions that seem tt compensate many of those born. blind for their lack of visio...

How I 'nptain Kite spent four ter rible days alone on a. little steam tug, the NannA, in lmid-ocean. was learnt on the arrival of the Nana in tow of tle German steamer; E.Russ. at Falitouth. 'The vessel and her captain hind been given up as lost.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. Si, -Fearingz that some mi5. apprehension may exist witir reference to the proposed inquiry a.o tO t fteasibilit· of :a small water scheme for B..rwviek town ship. I should like to state that in moving for a rec,~ci t on a scheme councillors had no iiten tion to proceed with anyd such mater without first c lli:g a meeting of the ratepayers to dis cuss it fully in all its bearings and to decide on th m:tter themselves. But it :oldl be useless to call such . meeting without having sme definite ex pert information before it, and therefore the consultin" engineer for the shire was called upon for . a preliminary scheme or scheimes with estimate of cost, and methods of carrying out the same. My own idea was a small pumping plant with tank and one or two standpipes, similar to' what private persons frequently' have on their properties, for the purpose of obviating the water famine that so frequently occurs, in :he summer time. I do not belieye that the resid...

THE BAY OF FUNDY [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 March 1914
Til? I.\Y 1." FUSNDY The Bay uf Fundy. the scene of the wreck of 'ie "Cohequid," is full of strange and contradictory features (says "*The WVestminster Gazette"). Grand .eanan Island, which lies to the port hand of a vessel entering the bay, is one rocky graveyard-on the reef to the south-east an impaled ship is a common sight. Every Indentation., nay, every rocky cranny, bears some terrible and suggestive name descrip tive of some maritime tragedy. On the Island. twelve miles in length and scarcely inhabited, is a graveyard filled I with the bodies of unknown sailors. A little above Trinity Rock. or which the "Cobequid" is impaled, the coast of Nova Scotia rises in rocky parapet:s from the sea, and a narrow inlet ad mits to the Annapolls Valley, wherts strange to say, the eye rests on a fer tile valley of apple orchards, which raise the highest-priced fruit in the world. In this sheltered space is a climate which. owing par:ly to the Oulf dtream and partly to position, differs alto...
