THE LENTEN SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 4 April 1914
THE LENTEN SEASON. Easter Monday is not due until April 13, this year. To many people the variability of the date of celebra tion of this peculiarly triumphal day in the Christian year is inexplicable. Why Easter should be approximately a fortnight later during one year than in another if it be an annual cele bration of a particular event is be yond their ken; but. truth to tell, few seem to bother themselves much about the question. It is an annual holiday, and is accepted assuch, with perhaps some far off, general recog nition of the significance of the oc casion. For such it may be as well to state that neither Easter Monday nor Christmas Day are historically accurate; they are merely chronolo gical approximations and must ne cessarily remain as such. And so it is that the period of Lenten obser vances varies from year to year. That they have varied in the manner with the accretion of centuries to the Christian era is as true as it is that a person may now whistle with im punity ...

ALLEGED THEATRICAL COMBINE (To the Editor, "The Standard") [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
ALLEGED THEATRICAL COMBINE (To the Editor, "The Standard") Sir,--The remark which Miss Adla Reeve seems to have dropped to the interviewer in somewhat resentful tone as to a theatrical combine existing iin Australia gives rise to solle reflection on the part of the working man. Grsat ed that we are a pleasure:loving people as a rather unpalatable promise, but: granting it all the samne for the sake of argument.--ls that any reason why we should be exploited? Now I do not say that there is a theatrical comnbine aud I do inot say there is not; all I have to say is that we workers are a pretty gullible erowd in somne respects. What keeps the theatres going, if not the gal leryites, and what constitutes the gal leryites if niot the workers? For my own part l'mi getting full up of these fancy charges whenever a bright par ticular star visits us. It's no use say ing the extra "'bunco"' goes into the star's pocket; hie might get a small per contage of it. I think it is about tiime people s...

LOCAL A.N.A. A Heated Interchange. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
LOCAL A.N.A. A Heated Interchange. The qhestion as to whether dele gates to the anniual conference of the A.N.A. should or should not press the resolutions submitted by their particular branches at all hazards, formed the staple of an unscheduled debate-with more than a touch of acrimony in it-at the meeting of the local branch of the association on Tues.day evening. Mr. R. H. Gill,, in reporting as one of the branch's delegates at the re cent conferenee. said a good many members would, doubtless, be sur p)rised at noting that he and Mr. Higgins. his co-delegate, saw fit to withdraw the branch's motion in favor of re-establishing the art union. The reasons were manifest, and unmder the circumstances there was nothing elseto be done. A good deal of the ar gument in favor of the art union was removed by the Board stating in the report that they would be responsible for the greater part of the loss*in connectiou with the educational ex hibition. It was fbund that there were at least fo...

FIRST OF APRIL FOOLING. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
FIRST OF APRIL FOOLING. A practical joke whichl provided a somewhat mischievous illustration of the kink of acquisitiveness in the :lv erage citizen was perpetrated in Port Melb6urne on the morning of the first of this month. A purse-a good. re spectable, solid-looking'one at tlhant- a comfortable old lady's purse, mi fact, was ingeniously nailed to the tram track near the town hall. It looked just such mi article as might have fallen from a passenger in a passing tram. Of course it was an All Fools'. Day joke, lbit.t the perpet rators were hidden from view; or were casually regarding tlhe contents behind shop windows; or dusting doorways, or otherwise guilelescly occupying themselves. But the story goes that a stout gentleman violeut ly beckoned the conductor to stop as the tram drew near the Town I-Hall. Aill his actions betokened the neces sity for the immediate tranisaction of urgent business. He disembarked, and retraced the journey. One might almost venture the assertion that ...
FACTS AND FANCIES. The Mammoth in France. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 April 1914
FAOTS AND FANOIEBS. The Mammoth in France. An indication of the en6rmous ex tent of the earth's surface which was formerly inhabited by that col ossal ancestor of the elephant, the mammoth, is given by the discov ery in the region of the Landes, in South-WXestern France, of remains of one of these animals buried in blue clay underneath a heavy layer of sandy soil between six and seven feet in depth. The discovery was made about nine miles from Dax by workmen engaged in digging clay to make brick. As@is generally, known, the remains of the mam moth are abundant in Alaska and' Northern Sibet'ia. There they are often found almost intact in the frozen soil, but of the French spe cimen there remain only a jaw-bone, some teeth, and a number of other bones. Antiquity of Tobacco. "Le Tabac" informs us that tihe idea that tobacco has only been known in Europe since the discovery of America is incorrect. In fact the Medes and Persians, a long time before our era, smoked narghiles, as ancient ...
