TRUE BLUE CATS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

TRUE BLUE CATS WOMEN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. The triumph of the true blue, of the real blue blood, was the distinguishing mark of the two days' cat show opened yesterday ^ at the Horticultural Hall, Westminsier (says "The Daily Mail" of January !)). It was the biggest show of cats ever held, and the blues were the biggest class. The blue cat was "Invented" just thirty years ago by Miss Simpson ana Is a monument to the peculiar skill of women as fanciers. The blue was "created" marvellously out of a com bination of black and white. At first the blues were also tabbies, but now these skilful women fanciers have got r rid of all tabby markings, and the blood is so blue that a blue cat always pro duces a blue, though now and again a little black blood is allowed. And very beautiful the blues arc, us well as true. CATS WITHOUT A FLAW. ! The judges, a majority of tlicm : women, wso posed the cats successively on a green bni'/.e oarci-lable and searched for both Haws and fakings, could find neit...

EMPIRE HARBORS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

EMPIRE HARBORS ] I Lord Pirric has .submitted to the Do minions lloyal Commission an interest ing memorandum on the development of Imperial and other harbors from the Point of view of shipowners and ship builders (says "The Daily Telegraph" l)f January S). He entirely adheres to the views he expressed to the Selcct 'Committee on steamship subsidies, in 1902, as to the desirabiliLy of providing deep approaches to the chief harbors of the l&mpirr. Alluding to develop ments which have taken place since then, Lord Pirric refers to the "admir able scheme" in process of execution in the Port of London, but expresses the fear that at the present rate of progress it will be quite inadequate by the time it is completed. Willi regard to other large ports, he mentions that the entrance of Port Phillip, at Melbourne, is steadily, if slowly, being deepened, but concerning two other important trade centres, namely, the St. Lawrence and the River Plate, there is little progress to record. ...

FOG EXPERIENCE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

FOG EXWrciUHNCE AT SEA. (By Frederic]: Xivon, in the "Daily News iind deader"). Firstly, you must have confidence in llie captain. Secondly, you must allow the fatalist in you to speak a nuiet word-and then the fog becomes a rich experience. Under the bridge, on the upper deck, is perhaps the best place to enjoy it. From that vantage, peer ing down, you can just make out. in the very bows, two look-out men, cran ing forward, muffled, hands deep in coat pockets, motionless, staring in'-o the nipping grey vapor. Tliey look like a new kind of ligurehead. Up in the fore erosstrecs. in the look-out barrel are two heads dimly set 11, one on each side of the mast, caeh in the attitude oC a short-sighted man peering into ;l small-print time-table on a wall. Step out from under the bridge and look up at it. The captain is canted against the front, coat-collar up, chin sticking out over the canvas dodger; at either end are sailors in the same at titude. Beside the little turret-like wheel-hou...

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. By Douglas 11 Ai-nistrons. in "The Daily Express.")

Tlie New Year of 11)14 is likewise des tined to bring- in its train some not able additions to the pages of the stamp album, although from a variety of causes it seems improbable that the new postage stamps issued during the year will bo anything like equal to the somewhat abnormal output of 1918. This supposition is based on the fact that within the past twelve months the issue of Georgian postage stamps, in place of'those bearing the likeness of King Edward VII., by the British do minions beyond the seas has been prac tically completed, and most of tile Por tuguese and many of the French colo nies have been provided with new stamps, while countries like Japan, China, D...

THE WIND OF HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

THE WIND OF HOPE James Douglas, in "The Daily News and Leader.") Swinburne saw and sang "A Vision of Spring in Midwinter." Happy is the man who can always forget the past and the [iresent and )ix his gaze on the future. For him the darkest night aches with a future star. For him there is a budding morrow in every midnight. For him there is nothing irrevocable. Happiness is the art of looking forward. The other day I was walking on the wet sand along the chilly merge of the grey December sea. My mood was cold and dark. The remembrance of suffer ing lay heavy on my mind. I had no strength of joy in me to' struggle with the harpies of gloom tearing at my heart. Suddenly I felt on my face a little breeze blowing off the waves. It was like the caress of an angel. There was something animate in its poignant passion of tenderness. It brought me the message of miles of strong salt sea. It set every nerve tingling and shud dering with delighted life. As the little wind from the sea played on...

SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACK.Ar Air, AND CACOPHONY'. Th:it Christmas is no longer a fes tival, but a nuisance, has long been a heresy privately held by many. But with the dreadful example of Scrooge before them they .have dared to noth ing^ more than dark muttering:?. They are of those who give, but without joy, and who let the dogs loose on carollers if the street is so dark that the dogs cannot be recognised. But this year-it is a fact so signifi cant that the sounds of the knell should be mentioned to all those who claim they retain the truo spirit of Christmas-the heretics are publicly stating their heresy.

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCUHAW-IJ CASES KliLIIiVIiD While llicrc is as yet 110 doctor who will say that radium is a "cure" for cancer (says "The Daily Express"), there is among those wlio have had ex perience of tlie treatment of cancer by radium a growing hope that its strange powers may one day be successfully harnessed. This hope lias received what to a non-medical mind stems like a very wonderful confirmation in results which have been obtained in the Cancer Cha rity Home connected with the Middle sex Hospital. But it must be under stood that medical research men are extremely unwilling to create the im pression that they have found a "cure" unless they have much stronger evi dence than has been obtained in the home. Hitherto an inoperable case of cancer has been regarded as ultimately fatal, save in the rare and almost miracu lous circumstances of a recovery tak ing place "by itself." The Cancer Charity was founded many years ago as a place in which incurable cancer patients mi...

TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY APPARITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY .APPARITIONS. (By a "Citizen" in "The Daily Tele graph.") At times, some will tell you, when a wind whistles about the turrets and barred gates of the Tower of London, and out of a break in storm-clouds the moon peers down, searching with a silvery light the baileys and sally-ports and prisoners' walks guarded by these high walls, the dark shadow of an axe steals across the blood-soaked plot of ground on Tower green, and stands gaunt and erect, silhouetted against the Norman keep. The tide lapping the river wharves, unseen though but a few yards distant, the occasional stir of the shipping, and the inexplicable sounds of a great city add to the mysteries of the night. This should be a wracking place for nerves. Eight centuries of England's story are isolated within the Tower's encircling walls. If any sub stance there be in the belief that dis tracted ghosts revisit the scenes of their great sorrows, assuredly upon no snot on earth do they congregate more thi...

WIRELESS AND FISHING [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

\VlitEI,ESS AND FISHING The writer of an article In " Tlio Wireless World" shows the importance to the fishing industry of the equip ment of fishing fleets with wireless telegraphy apparatus. One effect of the installation, we read, will be that the fleet will lie able, amongst other things, to ascertain, if encessary, or be informed of the state of the markets : "There was great need for improve ment in this direction. The merchants have grumbled long and loud over the irregular supplies, which threaten to strangle the market at Hull. An in stance in point occurred.only the other day. There was not a single North Sea trawler at the Hull Billingsgate, the market being solely dependent upon four Icelandic catches. At another time it may be there is a terrible glut, and many thousands of pounds worth of good material has to be wasted. Given the general adoption of wireless, this could be avoided, and it would benefit not only the trawler-owner, but the market :tsel:\ as it is sure to ...

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 March 1914

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOIIBE. (By Eden Phillpotts in "The Daily - News and Leader.") Lite comes laden still with good days that whisper of romance, when in some local sanctity, or haunt o£ old legend, our feet loiter for a little before we pass forward again. I indeed seek these places, and confess an incurable affection for romance in my thoughts and deeds. I would not banish her from art or life, and though most in tellectuals of to-day will have none of her, spurn romantic and classic alilcc, and take only "realism' to their bosoms; yet who shall declare that rea lism is the last word, or that reality belongs to her drab categories alone? "There is no 'reality' for us-nor for you either, ye sober ones, and'we are far from being so alien to one another as ye suppose, and perhaps our good will to get beyond drunkenness is just as respectable as your belief that ye are altogether incapable of drunken ness." A fragrant return to romance must surely awaits literature, when our ar tists h...
