PRINCE AND ACTRESS SEQUEL TO MARRIAGE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914

PRINCE AND ACTRESS SEQUEL TO MARRIAGE The marriage of a prince with a music-hall performer was yesterday the basis of a remarkable action in the Paris courts (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Mall," De cember 5). Prince Auguste of Broglie-Revei married last year Mile. Jane Thylda, a music-hall artist. His brother. Prince Henri of Broglie-Revel, and his uncle, Count Robert of Clermont-Ton nerre, the well-known sportsman, were, it appears, annoyed by the mar riage and the family broke off all re lations with Prince Auguste and his bride. The uncle and brother de manded that the remains of Countess Sosthene of Clermont-Tonnerre and of Princess Henri of Broglie-Revel should be removed from the private chapel of the Castle of Loroy, where Prince Auguste and his wife live, and re-interred in the family vault in the cemetery of Pere la Chaise In Paris.

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES FAIEL (By L>: G. Chlozza Money, in "The Dally News.") The death-rate of the United King dom is 14,000 a year ct the population. This rate expresses the averaging ot •ome wide variations—variations which express the difference between good housing and bad housing. There are places where the death-rate is about 20 per 1000; there are other places where it falls below 10 per 1000. (t is easier to state these things than to bring home to the mind the full re alisation of their meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrible import. To sliow what a death-rate may be under decent conditions, that of Kast bourne Is about 10 to 1000. That also Is about the death-rate of Hampstead. It Is also the death-rate of New Zealand. What would It mean to the United | Kingdom if the death-rate of the whole country could be reduced to this figure, shown to be a possible figure by iactual experience? It would mean a saving In the United Kingdom of 184,000 lives. That Is t...

KITCHENER'S GREAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE . A striking picture of the work that Lord Kitchener is- doing for Egypt as British Agent-General and of the im pression his picturesque and vigorous personality has produced on the native mind was forthcoming yesterday (says "The Dally Mall"- of November 29) in conversation with G. N. Sarruf Bey, son of the proprietor of the well-known Cairo vernacular newspaper, "AI-Mo kattam, who is now in London on the firm's business. Sarruf Bey said: The popularity enjoyed by Lord Kit chener in Egypt is wider and more comprehensive than that enjoyed by any of his predecessors. I think one may safely say ihat Lord Kitchener is the most popular figure In Egypt to day. He has m9.de all the Egyptians, from the Khedive down to the hum blest fellah {peasant), realise that he is the fr!en<Lof the Egyptians and under stands their'needs.

FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914

FRENCH LOAN Reply TO GERMAN challen 6BJ The French Cabinet, with faith in Its strength, proposed a vote of confidence this evening on the question of the £M,000,000 military loan to meet the German challenge, and the measure was passed by 391 votes to 270 (says the Paris correspondent of "The Dally Express" of December 2). Earlier in the day the Deputy M. Brousse had presented an amendment to increase the loan lo £60,000,000 on the score of 1914 budget necessity. Af ter discussion of the Treasury re quirements, M. Dumont. the Minister of Finance, accepted the Brousse amendment. This raised renewed opposition, how ever, and M. Barthou. the Premier, in tervening, declared thathe would not engage himself to the proposal to in . crease tho loan, but held that the £52,000.000 figure was irreducible. ''If the Chamber does not vote it," he said, "it will be another Govern ment which will make the same de mand." ! I Finally the Brousse amendment was I rejected by a large majority, and Ju'it...

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914

CHAPTER IX. rue individual may have a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public ■were concerned, the Hasted bank rob bery had ben consigned to the Um bo of forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would be enough to drag It forth. Men would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" Then they would recall the case more or less vaguely. "The fellow's name "was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten yeara? He was engaged to be married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, waent she?" But there was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, bit memories more deeply into heart and soul^as acid bites into metal. There weiwfio bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army officer and a gentleman. But prison regula tions were prison reg...

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914

The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltrv Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Righta Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Tborne's offer of marriage was indeed unconventional. She had im molated hersfclf on the family altar— for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sakn of one member of the fam ily—her mother. She might .have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay tlie penalty of his theft. Quite frankly, slie had. grown to hate her father; she despised her brother. Beryl she loved; hut Beryl with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorne. But her mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorne had supplied the -wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earn her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a wee...

AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE RECONSTRUCTION OP NAVAL BOARD. The completion of the Australia!

The personnel >hat was needed to deal with naval matters during the building up of the fleet and in the initial stages of the organisation of Admiral Henderson's scheme was of quite a different character from that which is necessary now that Admiral Patey has arrived in Australian waters and the serious business of training the officers and men of tho Royal Aus tralian Navy has been commenced in real earnest. Among the changes which are in contemplation is the reconstruction of the Naval Board. The Government hopes to obtain the services as first naval member of a British Admiral of high standing, who will be willing, for a limited period, at all events, to su pervise the Important worlt o...

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914

CHAPTER X. Some men who leap suddenly from comparative poverty to -wealth pro ced at once to indulge In vulgar dis play. Michael Thome, however, In his private life remained more or less, true to the habits of the plodding young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of busi ness rather than pleasure; but he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious flat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the housekeeper could have told one that Mr. Thorne wanted an accurate ac count of where every penny of the housekeping money went. But it did not follow that the man did not revel in the power of his money; in his power to control the copper market; to raise and depress and baffle his' rivals in the same market. In this way he got joy of his money. More than that. It had purchased a whole family, made absolute slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only one thing beyond Its purchase power— j love, reciprocity. His chance of ob taining ...
