PORTLAND SHOW RECORD ATTENDANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 February 1914
1 PORTLAND SHOW RECORD ATTENDANCE. The seventh annua] show of the Portland Pastoral, Agricultural, and Horticultural Society was bold on Wednesday in perfect weather, and was (says the " Observer") an un precedented success. Special trains from Colerainc, Hamilton, Casterton, and all intermediate stations were crowded, and all the morning the roads leading to Portland were lined with vehicles of every description, all conveying spectators to tbe show. The result was that the gate receipts easily constituted a record, being no less than £154-, which amount ex ceeds last year's takings by about £30. The committee is naturally elated at this highly gratifying measure of success, and already further improvements are fore shadowed. Success followed in other ways. The number and quality of the exhibits were well up to the standard of other years. Although Portland is not professedly a stock raising country, visitors from pasto ral districts were struck with the quality of tLe live stock. ...

SPORTING ITEMS. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 February 1914
SPORTING ITEMS. CRICKET. Coleraine on Saturday was mailt' the trysting ground for the Hamilton District and the Wannon-GIenelg District teams. Sucli representative players as were put into the Held made the match of more than usual importance, and as a matter of fact the scoring1 was a nearer approach to the better class of cricket than is the case with purely inter-club con tests. There was a fair number of onlookers, though cricket does not now secure the patronage of spec tators which it obtained in early days. The match served a very pleasant afternoon for all concerned, it being enhanced by the hospitable provision made by Mosdame.s and | ' Misses Ferrier and Douglas, of Grit- | jurk, to whom the players feel much indebted.

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 19 February 1914
CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L-C.C. tramcars are "the latest thing". A six months' experiment with them on tramcars running- from,the Ham mersmith depot is recommended by the Highways Committee of the L.C.C. The machines are to be fitted to the upper "saloon" decks. The proposal comes from a Mr A. H. Vincent, who is pre pared to pay a rent at the rate of £2/10/ per car each year. If the experiment is a success and the roof-covered cars over the tramway system generally are fitted with these boxes, the Highways Committee thinks that a revenue of nearly £4000 would be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add, "the supply in the Council's tramcars of cheap and wholesome chocolate would confer a considerable benefit upon the passengers using the tramways" particularly in the case of the all-night cars and the workmen's services. From automatic machines for choco late (says "The Daily News") it seems but an easy and natural step to ...

LOST TELEGRAMS POST OFFICE MUDDLE Two telegrams concerned in the case have been lost by the Post Office, it was stated at Chatham Police Court yesterday (says "The Dally Mail" of December 20), when Karl Hentschel was charged on remand with sending a telegram to his wife, threatening to kill her. Hentschel is the rtlan who recently gave himself up as a German spy, the prosecution, however, being withdrawn because he might have thought that he was shielded by a promise of protection made to him by another authority to which he had made confidential communications. Richard Saunderson, a clerk In the Accountant General's Department, General Post Office, London, said that tho originals of two telegrams which had been asked for could not be found. Arthur Edgar Kimber, overseer at the Chatham Post Office, stated that he sent the missing telegrams to the secretary at the General Post Office, London, and had not seen them since.

ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OF IRISH HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 19 February 1914
ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OP IRISH HISTORY An interesting provision as to the future of Coney Island—one of the four islands in Lough Neagh—is made in the will of the late Viscount Charl mont, who left unsettled personal estate of the value of £4976. His remains are to be buried on the island, and he left £36 a year for pay ment of a keeper, who will live on the island and keep the "old tower walls and m\ last resting place in good order." Neither the island nor the house is to be let, and the public are not to be allowed to visit the island except on Tuesdays and Saturdays. People coming to the island on yachts from a distance may land at any hour and have the use of the visitors' room in the keeper's lodge. Lough Neagh (remarks "The Daily News") figures in history as one of the inland waters where naval battles have been fought. The present Mar quis of Donegal is, in fact, the Here ditary Lord High Admiral of Lough Neagh. There are still the remains of defences on each of the Isl...
MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 19 February 1914
1 MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller in an article in the January "Hibbert Jour nal" says:— THE FAMILY The family is the only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to bind the individual's caprice to travel in regular orbits, and to build up an or derly society out of the gravitation of social units. It is a successful mech anism just because it is so much more than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and of the factory, and of the Church, though all these institutions have sometimes grown into unnatural forms which in jure and repudiate their origin. "I remember that when I was an Undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, the great Master of Balliol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on a great var iety of theories, ...
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 19 February 1914
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS (By Howard Evans in "The Daily News.") I always had a kindly feeling for the great Ducal House o£ Bedford, for I know no other house that occupies 1 such a distinguished place in the | annals of our country. It was a Russell who expended his | labor and his wealth in draining the vast fen lands, known as the Bedford I level; it was a Russell who laid down his life on the scaffold in Lincoln's Inn Fields in defence of English liberty; it was a Russell who was i one" of the foremost in ridding the nation of the Stuart Kings; it was a Russell who commanded our fleet in the decisive victory of La Hogue. In more recent times it was a Russell I who carried the first Reform Bill, and throughout his long life was a staunch champion of civil and religious liberty. Tho present Duke of Bedford has done a public service by giving an ac count of the stewardship of himself and* his predecessors by the book which he published a few years ago, called "The...

MOTHER'S SUSPICION STRANGE SMELLING MEDICINE. A mother who was dissatisfied with j the medicine which a doctor gave her child and sent it to the authorities for analysis gave evidence at an inquest , at Newington yesterday (reports "The Daily News" on December 9).

LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 19 February 1914
LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. London receives the Man from Over sea like a coy maiden being intro duced to her brother's pal (writes "A Visiting Australian" In "The Dally Chronicle.") She's not going to take any risks. She holds him at arm's length to inspect him and watch him wriggle, and then, if he makes the right impression, she may find a cor dial place for him. The colonial does pretty well wher ever he goes (they tell me), because he has developed in him that utter lack of respect for respected tradi tions. He is like the American com mercial traveller—he can be relied upon to "butt in." But the colonial usually does it very nicely. He ap proaches a situation circumspectly, and when the band begins to play, if he isn't right up alongside the stand ard-bearer or geting choice secrets from the drum-major, he Is a most disappointing sort of colonial. Nevertheless, among the many men I have known in the Antipodes who have come to London, there have been quite a num...
LIVING=IN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 19 February 1914
LIVINWN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. Hotel, club and restaurant workers crowded the Kingsway Theatre yes terday to demand the abolition of the living-in system and the application of the Shops Act (reports "The Daily News" on December 15). Mr P. C. Hoffmann, general organ iser of the Shop Assistants' Union, said that in one of the most fashion able houses in the West End the as sistants had to sleep in the shop. In a large town in the North of England a well-known firm of drap gi*s had been heavily lined for having on its premises carcases of diseased mutton for the consumption of the staff "You will hardly credit it,' he continued, "but that very firm had a list of rules, one of which read: 'Any member of the staff leaving meat on his or her plate will be fined slx pence.'
