•ARMIES OF THE DOMINIONS. " The growth of Imperial senti ment ia England is extraordinary," declared General Sir Ian Hamilton, Inspector-General of the Oversea Forces, when interviewed on the R.M.S. Otranto at Freemantle on Tuesday. " Why, the Australian voter is a bigger power in the eyes of our legislators than thf* English voter. You are the apple of their eyes.—that is a positive fact," he added. " I think that one effect of my present tour will be thai the equipment, etc., of the armies of the oversea Dominions,, will be standard ised, and the drill made much the same everywhere. Since my ap pointment as Inspector-General I have for threo and half years in soectod every garrison of our oversea Dominions, and inspected forces in South Africa and Canada. I hope that the Australian Minister for De fence will be satisfied that he has re ceived good value for good money. Mine will be a true report."

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 February 1914

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CaGJOS. . • "No tirds and no mammals, from whatsoever part' of the wor d or rH mate they may have come, ever ap proach the duration; of life which they may he expected to attain, if they arc kept in the: interior of. a warmed house," said Dr Chalmers Mitchell secretary to the Zoological Society of London, referring: to the new open-air installations at the Zoo in a uaper read before the Royal Society of Arts last night (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). The customary heating arrange ments are expensive but certain modes of killing them. Fresh" air is the fun damental necessity. "There is what may be called a boom in zoological gardens." he said. "1 am sometimes charged with being too sedulous of the popular side of mena geries and careless of their scientific side. In this matter there is a real coincidence between what the public want and what is best for the advance ment of scientific knowledge. "There are very few living animals that are kn...

WEATHER PROPHETS THE POINT OF VIEW. (By Barry Pain, in the "Daily Mail.") [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 February 1914

WEATHER PROPHETS i —.— i THE POINT OF VIEW. (By Barry Pain, in the "Daily Mail.") In the little smoking-room at the back of the bar the conversation was I mainly between Mr Hagley, a stolid looking man in gaiters, who had made 1 an unproved assertion and stuck to it, and Mr Peterson, a fluent little man with spectacles, London-born, who ob jected to unproved assertions. There were others present. There was the landlord, a wise man who said little. And in the leather-covered armchair by the fire was the obeso figure of Mr Jackson. Mr Jackson had sold a horse extremely well that day—almost too well in the opinion of purists—and was now very tired. Even in sleep his podgy fingers never relaxed their grip of his half-smoked cigar, and occasionally he woke up for a moment and contributed something to the conversation which had no direct bearing upon it. "We'll all friends here," said Mr Peterson glibly, "and I am sure I havo no wish to lose my temper or to make use of any expression whic...

DEADLY FLANNELETTE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 February 1914

DEADLY FLANNELETTE Inflammable clothing as a cause ' of deaths by fire is exposed in a striking manner by statistics compiled by "Fire." The writer says:— "When the fireguards clause "was in corporated in the Children Act it was piously hoped that the number of chil dren annually burned to death would be reduced by half. So far as our records k go, the number of infantile mortalities has increased, for the Act is practic ally a dead letter; few penalties are im posed in the comparatively few in stances where proceedings have been taken. The Government did not strike at the principal cause of infantile burn ing fatalities—inflammable clothing." "Very few men are burnt to death owing to their clothing igniting:." adds the writer, "but it is different with women, quite 95 per cent, of the fatal ities to women reported being due to the inflammability of their wearing apparel." The total of fire fatalities this year to November 19, as compiled by the writer, is 64 men, 201 women, and 592...
