WIZARD OF MENTONE [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

WIZARD OF MENTONE (By G. Valentine Williams in " The Daily Mail.") Every morning without fall about 8 o'clock he comes over from Bordighera, which lies like a white, tapering linger stretched out into the sparkling Medi terranean. He is. always a trifle flush ed, for he comes in a tremendous hurry knowing that he has a hard day's work before him. Until 4 o'clock or . there abouts he stays In Mcntone, revealing with his magic wand: a myriad marvel lous beauties of which before his com ing we had no knowledge; then, with a delicate' blush-arid slowly, for ne is very tired, he slips away' behind the darkling slopes of Cap Martin-to west ward, and winter, which his presence banishes, steals over Mentone once; more.. ? Monte Carlo, round a couple ot pro montories 'o the west, has its casino arid, its elegants and enegantes, its opera with its world-famous singers, its theatre with great Parisian artists "dans leurs creations."

ENGLAND AND GERMANY SPEECH BY AMBASSADOR Prince Liclinowsky, German Am bassador, presided at sV festival dinner held at Newcastle-on-Tyne last night, in aid of the funds of the German Mission to the Seamen and Sailors' Home, South Shields (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 14), and in the course of his remarks expressed the opinion that the good -relations that had so long existed between Great Britain and Germany would, with the help of a fuller mutual understanding and a still better realisation of the possibilities of peaceful development, always be maintained.

THE ROSE-LEAF ROMANCE [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

THE MSUm ROMANCE (By R. T. Chandler in "The West minster Gazette."') It was one o£ those rare accom plished first novels which seem to find their publisher and their public as . easily as love finds its young dream. It appeared under, the auspices of a fine old iirm, anonymously, though the fashion is out of date, and the world seized upon it at once. "A true rose leaf romance, delicate as sea-spray in June, yet'glittering and keen as dia mond dust," wrote the wise, austere critics of the reviews who have read nil books in all languages. "You sim ply must read it," said the feminine population to its friends, and even the great unpublished were not ashamed to be seen reading it. It created something less than a furore, perhaps, but far more than a succes d'estime. It was a book that politi cians were compelled to glance at while dressing for dinner. Reviewers, to be in the mode, had to allude to it; it was a sound topic for breaking the ice at dinner parties; one gushed over it at t...

LIFE IN AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

LIFE IN AUSTRALIA -Mlliisott> Sydney, In a letter lo, "^'10 Levt.cm Times" relates some o£ his experiences in Australia. . "I promised," lie says, "to write you a few lines about Australia, and am now in a position to write about both bush and town life. Busli life is quite distinctive from town life, and there are many Australians who have never been far into the bush. They live the snrrio sort of life as a townsman in England, except that wages ire very much higher here and hours consider ably shorter. Most readers of your paper have been to Epplng Forest. Well, the bush is very much like the Forest, except that the grass grows vcry.tall and the trees grow to a tre-" mendous height. They are mostly hare to, within a few yards of the top, and then there is a little foliage. There is also scrub land in the bush. This is small trees, thick ferns, and tropical plants. It is often impossible to walk through it, ut it contains very rich soil. I rode through miles and miles ot Queensl...

DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS Tremendous strides have been made of late years in the treatment of tuber culosis (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January IS), and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the sur geons at Guy's Hospital, who, greatly daring, arc declared to have made a remarkable advance in tho treatment of certain forms of disease. Recent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chronic lll-healtli, such as ..nervous debility, rheumatism, and other disorders, are due to poisoning set up by unhealthy conditions of the large intestine, and it has even been suggested that the lowering of vitality resulting from such poisoning is favorable to; the develop ment of cancer and tuberculosis. It was felt that if the-large intestine could be safely removed the result would be a tendency to healthy longe vity In the individual; but surgeons were deterred from the obvious opera tion by a knowledge of other functions performed by this part of ...

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Rear-Admiral A. T. Mahan, In "The Daily Mail.") Tho naval position of Great Britain Is a composite of two distinct factors. Those arc the genera! International situation, in so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter ests or her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those Interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent the defensive and offensive elements of a miJUary situation. At the present moment tho mere security of the British Islands is con ceived to be so far imperilled that it lias prompted a radical change in the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around tho islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related tn it, lias been the withdrawal-the drawing back-of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its definite headquarters. Students of military history w...
