DEADLY WIND PRESSURE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

DEADLY WIND PRESSURE A theory that wind suction is the cause of many street accidents was put forward by Dr Ehrlich at an in quest at Fulham (Eng.) on Martha Rolfe, aged sixty-six, wife of a labo rer, who was killed at Talthanm Green by a motor-lorry. Dr. Ehriich advanced the theory that the passage of such a bulky and heavily-laden vehicle would create great wind pressure, and that the woman might have been unconsciously drawn underneath the wheels. If the force of the wind created by the passage of such a heavy motor vehicle was suffciently strong. he said, it might turn the woman right round and draw her under the wheel. A verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned. ,.. - , n ., r?? 'r ?a

TURK'S STRANGE DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

TURK'S STRANGE DEATH The case of Kavakli Mustapha, who was arrested on board a Russian steamer, has had a tragic development: in the shape of his death in prison (says Reuter's Constantinople corre spondent to "The Daily Express"). Although according to the otflcial ver sion he is stated to have committed suicide. there seems to be little reason to doubt that he succumbed to police methods used to extort information as to the doings of Prince Saba Eddin and other opponents of th~e present regime. whose emissary he is supposed to'have been. The question is much aggravated from an international standpoint by this development, and the Russian Em 1assv will be compelled to insist on the fullest satisafaction being given to it.

WOMEN EXPLORERS ------- Mir P. Amnaury Talbot, a District Commnlissioner in Southern Nigeria (West Africa), who has just completed a journey of over 4300 miles in the Eket district, stated in an interview with Reuter's representative that he found customs and ceremonies which appear to have come down unchanged from the days of the Pharaohs.

They have been informed that their rent is to be in creased by 1SO per cent., which means that they will have to pay at the rate of over £760 an acre. The landlord is not a duke, but the Government. The "land" is shingle beach, which could not grow even a niangold wurzel. The plots are let on yearly tenancy. and up to now the rent has been fixed at 1/- per foot frontage, but the War Department, which controls the beach, has just notified the tenants that af ter April 1 the rent will be fixed at 2/- per foot of frontage, addedl to 6d a foot of depth.

LORD ROSEBERY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

LORD ROSEBERY Dr. Brandes, the great Danish critic, now in Ltngland gives high praise to Lord PHosebery as an orator In an ar ticle in "T.P.'s Weekly." "Lord Rfosebery." he says, "has a never falling dignity; instead of incis iveness and nlordracy the charm of quiet eloquence and the delicate, re strained faincy that elicits now a smile, npow laughter. As a man and as a spea.ker he is elegance personified. And such is his mastery- that, when lie says anything witty or amusing, his face preserves the lmost imperturbable gra vity. Only when the answering ap plause reaches hin does that face break into a smiie that positively enchants one by its coquettish roguishness. "For Rosebery is thoroughly coquet tish as a speaker: again and again he charmed one with gentle coquetry. HN spoke, for instance, of the destructive power of old age which thinned the hair-he passed his hand over his head, which was well covered-and reduced the teethl-he pointed to his mouth, which was in good order-but...

BARRISTERS' DELUSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

BARRISTERS' DElUSIONS i A curious story of a barrister's delu sions with regard to a well-known authoress was related to the Recorder of London at the Old Bailey yesterday (says the "Daily Teelgraph" of De cdmber 11). William Burke, 42, bar rister, was indicted for sending a postal packet containing an impropler letter. Mr. Travers Humphreys prosecuted, and Mr. E. L. Iladlield defended. Mr. Travers Hlumphreys said the dte fendant was a member of Gray's Inn, and, when a student, attended a course of lectures given by Mr. Arthur ,ndcrhill. Mr. Underhill had a daugh ter-Miiss Evelyn Underhill--who was married, in 1907, to .Mr. Stuart Moore, another member of the bar. Burke had no acquaintance with Mr. Under hill, save as a lecturer, and he was not known either to MIr. or Mrs. Stuart Mioore. The lady had written a num ber of books in her maiden name Evelyn Underhill-and it would seem that the defendant had read some 'of them.

The Great Montamor By ALICE M. DIEHL, AuthoreFs of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER VI. The Pretender. The entrance to Riverview, as the villa was called, was in a lane. It was well that there w s a wide car riage-drive and a large stable-yard, for the place was well stocked with motor-cars when Miss Halidare had slowly driven in. Arrangements had been made at the inns for the "put ing up" of the horsevehicles. There was a festive air about the trees and shrubs and house front, electric lights having been festooned about, producing the effect of a shower of fireflies: and as Gwendolen ascended the steps, under an awning, she stop ped short to admire the interior. The hall, ordinarily of a kind which would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was transformed into a bower of pale green silky draperies, festooned with roses. Maids in white and rose color smilingly conducted the ladles to the dining-room. changed into a boudoir. Gwendolen was sincerely pitying L...

Justice Seabury. in the United States Supreme Court, has orderd her to be re stored to the teaching staff out of which the New York City Board of Education thrust her "for negleot of duty" when she was absent to bear the baby.
