CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L.-C.C. tramears are "the latest thing". A six months' experiment with them on tramears 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 ihut a revenue of nearly £4000 v/ould be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add. "the supply in the Council's tramears 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 Dally News") it seems but an easy and natural step to...

MR ROGER WALLACE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

1R ROGER WALLACE The public examination of Mr Roger Wallace, K.C., regarding his failure was held yesterday in the Court of Bank ruptcy (says "The Daily Mail" of Du cember 17). He said he began business as a chemical merchant many years ago. The year 1S97 was disastrous, and his liabilities roached £150,000. He handed over all his assets to trustees for the benefit of his creditors, and a great many of them were paid in full, jle studied for the Bar, and was called in April, 1882. Hh earned for many years up to 1908 between £6000 and £7000 per annum. The OlUcial Receiver: Why did you not stick to your profession? Mr Wallace said he had always been interested in new things—in chemical research and electricity—and ho was in a good many companies. His fees from the directorships varied; one year they reached £5000, One company brought him a profit of £30,000; the Inancial difficulties of another caused him to lose £o0,000. He had brought in a scheme for payment of his present i credito...

LIVING=IN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

LIVINGS ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. Hotel, club and restaurant workers crowded the Kings way Theatre yes terday to demand the abolition of the livlng-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 ers had been heavily fined 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 six pence.' "

Bush Fire at Daalko FARMER'S HOMESTEAD DESTROYED [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

Bush Fire at Daalko FARMER'S HOMESTEAD DESTROYED During the recent spell of hot weather a bush fire broke out at Daalko, near Underbool, when Mr. Tress Chaplin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chaplin, of Lake Hindmarsh, sustained the loss of his house and its contents.   Mr. Chaplin has written to his parents a graphic description of the fire, in which he states that the thermometer registered 116 degrees in the shade on the day that the fire occurred. The con flagration started on Wednesday, near the water bore, and the fire spread through O'Connor's and Walter's blocks. Two days later the fire was still burning near the north end of Hinneberg's allotment, and it extended to the rolled mallee. The wind was blowing a hurricane, and the dust and smoke was overpowering. A change of wind swept the fire into our residence, which was a mass of flames within two minutes. Nothing could be done and we had     considerable difficulty to escape a fearful dea...

CHILD DOES THINGS BACKWARDS | MISPLACED HEA'RT AND BRAIN, j Alter recent disclosures 01 start linglv unusual children who write and see thing's upside down (says the "Daily News") now comes the story of a twelve-year-old Birmingham girl who has had an uncontrollable impulse to "do thines backwards." Her education has made little pro gress owing to this strange perverse ness. which has sometimes impelled her to write from right to left. The doctors conjectured that there was some physiological abnormality, and the X rays have now disclosed the secret of the child's eccentricities. When the rays were applied it was found that the heart was on the right side of the body, and that other or gans. including the brain, were mis placed.

PRISON PANTOMIME [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

PRISON PANTOMIME Strolling across the yard at Chelms ford Gaol (says the London "Evening News") a man decently dressed in an overcoat and bowler hat requested the warder to open the gates for him, "as he had finished repairing the "organ." The warder remarked carefully, "What's your name?" turning to the visitors' book. "Griffin," said the man who had finished repairing the organ. But "Grif fin" was a name which did not seem to have been entered, and the warder thought he would keep the gates closed for the moment. In the meantime to telephoned to the office, and the quick arrival of officials showed that his caution was justified. "Griffin" was at once recognised as one of the prisoners. It was found that he had slipped away unobserved during exercise, and passing through the kitchen garden, entered the probation warders' quar ters. There he had changed his clothes —and also secured a gold watch chain.

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

SHORT SENTENCES BILL. TO DIMINISH THEM. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma gistrates' Club (says 'The Daily News" of December 5), Mr M'Kenna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. He expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with the approval of both recognised par ties, but even with the approval of the recognised cranks. (Laughter). They hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to deduce the num ber of prisoners. "We hope," he continued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should be avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to the victim of them, and they don't protect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline and the conditions of work which he would learn—useful work— would enable h...
