DRESSED LYING DOWN [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

DRESSED LYING DOWN Illusions are born to be destroyed, and last night another one received a death-blow (says the "Daily Ex press" of January 7). Mr. Loudon Macqueen Douglas, the president of the Scottish Society, in a lecture in Edinburgh on "The Wearing of the Kilt," said that the tartan was not Scottish In Its origin at all. "TJie kilt emerged from a confu sion of different types of dress," he said. "The ancient dress of Scotland, particularly In the northern parts of the country, was the breacan felle, or kilted plaid, which consisted of some seven to twelve yards of tartan sewn up the middle so as to form a plaid of double width, varying from four to six yards long by two yards wide. A portion of this length was laid on the ground with the belt under it, the lower and middle portion being then plaited so as to form a kilt, leav ing a flap at either side. "The Highlander lay down upon this, crossed the right flap, and next placed the left flap over it, and then buckled his belt....

MOTOR FIRE BRIGADE "Within three years (says "The Dally Express") It is expected that the Lon don Fire Brigade will become a com pletely motor-equipped fire-fighting organisation. London to-day possesses 97 motor appliances and two motor flre floats, and it is now proposed to spend £100,000 in providing 53 motor escape vans, 43 electric escape vans, 94 petrol or petrol electric motor pumps,' 27 motor turntable ladders, 11 motor lor ries, 5 motor tenders, 15 motor cars, and a motor canteen van—a total of 249 new motor appliances.

Thrown-down lights caused ao fewer than 828 outbreaks, 163 were caused by defective electric circuits, 185 by sparks from Area, and 131 by mishaps with candle...

TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE "Since November 15 every tramp and vagabond found wandering in France has been taken Into the police stations to be measured and photographed, and sent out with a document giving all particulars regarding: their persons and past record," says "The Dally Graphic." "This paper they must produce at any moment tor verification. All this is in accordance with a law passed in 1912 making it compulsory for three classes who habitually use the roads to so re gister themselves. These classes are itinerant dealers and pedlars at fairs and markets, and tramps and vaga bonds. "Regarding the first two classes, the new law is more protective than vexa tious. Though they have to declare themselves, the mere production of their papers will at once show their bona fides, and a number which all must carry will allow headquarters to learn at once the history of all the wan dering family. These two classes have to obtain official books containing proofs of their identity, p...

OPPOSING FORCES * " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts to. But the^hirt needn't shrink And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft u eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town.

Not Worth While. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

Not Worth While. It is certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain on vitality. It is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large numfrer of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not Incapacitate thein frpm performing their duties, but which decidedly pre vent them from doing their best. Rheumatism, gout, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, 'blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles are complaints which afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused 'by retention of uric and biliary ipoisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear if the kidneys and liver properly per formed their functions. Warner's Safe Cure is a kidney and liver remedy, which has been successful in 60; many cases that sufferers from any of the complai...

LAURENCE STERNE "ALAS! POOR YORICK!" [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1914

LAURENCE STERNE "ALAS! POOR YORICK!" Two hundred yeara ago to-day, Lau rence Sterne, the immortal author of "The Sentimental Journey" and "Tris tram Shandy," was born at Clonmel. and the event Is to be commemorated this evening by a dinner at the Authors' Club. Mr Andrew Hope Haw kins will preside, and Mr Edmund Gosse is to be the principal guest (says the "Westminster Gazette" of November 24). Although Sterne was born in Ire land, there was nothing Irish in his connections or descent; and it was solely owing to the fact lhat his father, who was an army officer, hap pened to be stationed there with his regiment in 1713 that his distinguished son first saw the light of day in the Emerald Isle. On the other hand, the family v:ss essentially English, and for genera tions had dwelt In Yorkshire. Sterne's great-grandfather was In his day an j eminent divine, and rose to the posi tion of Archbishop of York. In 171S the family returned to their native county, and with the exception of very...
