VISIT TO AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
VISIT TO, AUSTRALIA Mr. E. W. Chaplin,, who recently took the long: sea voyage to Australia Cor the benefit of his health, has col lated many of his experiences in the form of an interesting lecture on "Down Under and Back Again," which he delivered to the members of the Southampton Cameron Club at the Philharmonic Hall on Monday even ing (says the "Southampton Times" of December 6). " ... . t, - Mr. Chaplin acknowledged that a 13 weeks' stay in a great country like Australia made it impossible to give anything like a complete outline "of the possibilities of this"wonderful country. Australia is 25. times as large as the United Kingdom, nearly three-quarters the size of Europe, larger than the United States, and four-fifths the size of Canada. It is very rich in natural wealth, producing gold, silver, lead, copper, and precious stones. In addition, there are vast deposits of iron ore which have been scarcely touched; but the pastoral industry, owing to. the splendid climatic conditi...
TIPPING SYSTEM [Pre-printed from "The Dally Express," of December 23, 1930.] [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
TIPPING SYSTEM [Pre-printed from "The Dally Ex press," of December 23, 1930.] we regret to announce the death of Mr Herbert James Piper, the great re former, who, seventeen years ago, brought about the total abolition of Christmas-boxes in the British Isles. Writing in these days, when every town has Its Piper statue to commem orate our national deliverance from the tyranny of tips, it is difficult to realise that the great movement had its beginning in a small semi-detached villa at Ealing. Looking back to that historic morn ing of December 26, 1913, one is able to reconstruct the scene. One sees Piper sitting at his breakfast tablel and receiving the maidservant's mes sage: "It you please, sir, the gentle man what empties the dustbin has called to wish you the compliments of the season." Piper (the British Museum has his letter telling the story) had already handed over a shilling, with the curi ous resignation of the tip victims of those days, when he was inspired with an idea wh...
SIX SISTERS 475 YEARS OLD [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
SIX SISTERS 475 YEARS OLD The joint ages of a family or six sis ters named Lamelle, living in a little village near Autun, France, total 475 years. Lazarette is eighty-five, Marie eighty-three, Marie Lazarette seventy eight, Etiennette and Jeanne, twins, seventy-seven, and Antoinette seven ty-five. They are all in perfect health, and look forward to living 100 years each. NOT ON THEIR OWN The ideal of the future must be a humanism which no more idealises "the woman on her own" than it ad mires the isolated man, but allows to each personality and freedom, and links them in a comradeship against the lusts and the brutalities which would destroy them both (says "The Nation").

DEFINING A TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
DEFINING A TRADE Four Law Lords and five eminent counsel were occupied in the House of Lords yesterday in an endeavor to settle whether boiling a kettle is or is not a trade (says the "Daily News" of November. 15). They did not suc 1 ceed—at least, their lordships re served judgment without calling upon counsel for the respondent, Lord Hals bury remarking that if they desired ■ to hear them they would notify them to that effect. The respondent yesterday was the occupier and licensee of the Crutched Friar Hotel, John street, Minories. The appellants were the Metropolitan Water Board, and the question at issue was whether the water supply was one for trade or domestic pur poses, in view of the fact that a cater ing business is carried on at the hotel. One or two posers were put by Lord Halsbury to Mr. Clavell Salter, K.C., who opened for the Water Board, and argued that the catering consti tuted a trade within the meaning of the Act. "If an old woman had someone to tea (to be paid for...
QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED Quinine, the price of which has just been advanced, is one of a number of drugs whose values are not wholly gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. The drug is obtained from Cinchona bark, which is no named because it was introduced Into medicine in 1638 by Countess Chinchon, the wife of the Viceroy of Peru, who was herself cured of a fever by its aid. In the whole sale drug markets the bark is still call ed Chinchona, but the pharmacopoeial name is Cinchona. Until comparatively recent years the supply' of bark was obtained from South America, and it is in fact still commonly known as Peruvian bark. But about fifty years ago an Eng lish traveller obtained some Cinchona seeds and brought them to England, where they were eventually bought by the Dutch Government. They were planted in the Island of Java, and af ter a long series of experiments the Dutch Government succeeded in culti vating trees which will yield two or even three times as much quinine as the ...
AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
AMERICAN TRADE MORE? UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. President "Wilson expects to sign the Currency Bill in about a fortnight, so that the nation may have this long wished-fo'r and much discussed mea sure for giving greater freedom and flu idity to credit as its Christmas present for 1918 (says the New York correspon dent of "The Daily News," December 9). The delay in inducing the Senate to end its deliberations, due to the bank ers' fear that the Bill would estab lish too much political control, has been one of the chief obstacles to the general resumption of business activity. Indeed, industrial conditions, as indicated by the railway returns,' the investment market, and the number of laborers out of work, are extremely depressed. It is stated that there are more unem ployed in the Middle West as well as the Eastern States than in any year since 1907. This applies particularly to railways, in consequence of the re trenchment policy by most of the com panies, while reports from Chica...

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE Drastic regulations to meet the cel luloid danger are made in the report of the Departmental Committee (Eng land) which has been considering: the matter. The proposals (says "The Daily News") are calculated to excite alarm among the public and to re volutionise the trade. The danger to the purchasing pub lic, it is pointed out, is increased by the fact that in many cases the na ture of the substance is not apparent, and the committee urge that some such words as "Celluloid, inflam mable," should be marked on or at tached to such articles and toys. Boots and shoes, parts of which other than the eyelets and hooks are coated with sheet celluloid, or to which celluloid buckles are attached, should not be sold without ah indi cation to this effect. Special risks attach to wearing celluloid in the hair. It is recommended that local autho rities should issue warnings to shop keepers as to the dangerous proper ties of celluloid. - The amount ...
WONDER OF LIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
WONDER OF I/IGHTS "If you had gone to sleep seventy years ago and awoke to-day what would be the most astonishing thing? "In his 'Mid-Victorian Memories' Mr R. E. Francillon answers the question ■It is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light. The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, the paraffin lamp, which smelt horribly, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago the light of the home was a candle or two encouraged by snuffers. And this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzled by the electric lights that turn midnight into noonday. Our houses and streets have abolished night," says "The Westminster," "and the coming of light would be the wonder of the man who had gone to sleep with a tal: low candle and /waked to—turn on the switch."
PAID IN FULL [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914
PAID IN FULL . Nineteen years ago, on December 1.', 1S94, Mr J. W. Cook, an ambitious young man of twenty-six, was dismiss ed J:rom an office in Wolverhampton, where he was engaged in the railway contracting business. His dismissal was followed by his being declared a bankrupt. On ■ Wednesday last, December 17 (says "The Daily Mail")Mr Cook,middle aged and prosperous, entered the Of ficial Receiver's office at Wolverhamp ton and presented the Receiver with a cheque for £800, which will pay his creditors twenty shillings in the pound and all the cost in connection with the bankruptcy proceedings. The £800 represents not a sudden windfall, but money saved bit by bit by a man with a fine respect for his good name and that of his wife and children. "The day X was dismissed is very vivid in my merory," said Mr Cook. "We were all looking forward to Christ mas Day. I was earning good money and we were expecting an addition to our family.

Quo Vadis. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 February 1914
Quo Vadis. .What is described as the "most powerful attraction yet provided in the world of picture," will be shown at the Lyric Theatre, next Friday evening, when Quo Vadis will be screened. The story is the work of Henry Sienkiewiez, and has stood out amongst woiks of fiction as containing the most faithful representations of Roman history around the time of the voluptuous Nero. In this great reproduction, the Cines Co. have faithfully followed the lines laid down by the novelist, and we have such a series of pictures as have never previously been presented to the public. Every incident of the novel appears to have been pre served with remarkable fidelity, and while every scene has its point of interest, there is a tenseness and gripping power throughout that cannot fail to impress. There is not a weary moment during the whole of the six reels. Interest is sus tained from beginning to end, and when the curtain falls oil the last scene, there is a feeliug of regret that we have not...
Wanurp. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 February 1914
Wanurp. (Im'oiu Our Correspondent.) Harvesting is over and. carting about finished in this district, Farm ers- are uow preparing for next seeding time. The culverts, especially the old ones, have been badly broken up, and -:ire not safe to cross. Hun dreds of them want pulling up and replacing with oppn crossings, which could be uiatl of swamp cement, and would be much safer than culverts with broken planks and rabbit burrows, which are a source of danger. Water is getting very scarce. Most of the dams are dry, and many people are falling back on wells to water their stock. Many people talk of applying to the trust for water to see them through till raiu comes. . Possibly it would be better for farmers to join in a body and apply for 100 acre feet. Then they would have water for slock, and be able to grow plenty of green foHder for the summer months. There is no need to be afraid of it, as the proposition will pay all right. With gree'j feed the cows will milk all through the year i...
