THE MOVING PICTURE. A RIVAL TO THE "PENNY DREADFUL." [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911
THE MOVING PICTURE, A RIVAL TO THE "PENNY DREADFUL." ' ? - ' . The popularity of. the cinematograph theatre in this country was largely due to the. high tone of the pictures, which up till recently have not been spoilt by the introduction of the vulgar or the ob scene film. But lately many of the pictures are on the side of distorted realism, and films depicting the war antics of hide ously painted Wild Indians,, who scalp numerous victims with complete disre gard for the harrowed feelings of the audience, or the sensational' misdoings of impossible villains in dramas of a very lurid description are not likely lo further the popularity of the moving picture. A STRONG INDICTMENT. In this direction a correspondent . has eallcd our attention (aays " M.A.F.") to the baneful effect that such imagin ative pictures are liable to exercise on the impressionable minds of the young. The peril of the "Penny Dreadful" has for years occupied the minds of those .who are concerned with the moral we...
DECAY OF THE PRISON. SOMETHING OF THE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911
DECAY OF THE PRISON. S OMETHING OF THE SYSTEM. Since the Devil accompanied Coleridge to Pentonville to see the new prison 't built on Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon , system, curiosity and interest in prison j systems have grown beyond the circles of philosophers and poets. Coleridge shuddered and passed on; but the shud dering, emotional stage worked off, and people took courage to facc the secrets of the prison house. As a result of reforms we can now take up sucli a volume of prison reports as that for 1909-10 without being overwhelmed -by a sense of helplessness and hopeless ness. Indeed we may have now another emotion. The chaplain at Dartmoor sug gests that the increase of recidivism, the constant return of' prisoners to ; their old prison haunts, may be due to the strides that have been made in the more humane 'treatment of prisoners and to the shortening of sentences. In the competition between the Home Of fice and the Local Government Board for ameliorating the lot of their pr...
CONQUEST OF THE AIR. COLONEL CAPPER'S OPTIMISM. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911
CONQUEST O*1 THE AIR. COLONEL CAPPER'S OPTIMISM. . I Colonel J. E. Capper, C.B., chief of I the Army Aeronautical Department, gave an illustrated lecture on "Airships a^id Aeroplanes" under the auspices of I the Women's Aerial League at Farnham Corn Exchange, last night (says the "Daily Telegraph" of October 5). He said the apathy of English people to the whole subject of conquest of the air nvas extraordinary. He did not tlhink they realised in the least what It meant to a nation, particularly to them. He and others who had always taken an interest in the subject, and had the foresight to see what was coming, were laughed and scoffed at, and toid that tlhey were fools. Now the- beginning of the , conquest had come. It was .only the beginning, and was absolutely nothing to what was bound to come in the near future. The Continent and America were pushing ahead because they knew what- it migfht mean to them. For the last seven years it had been his special duty to study the subject fr...

POOR MAN'S DOCTOR '? v DEAD ,'IN A. WOOD. HEALING WITHOUT PROFIT. A story'of infinite pathos Is revealed by the discovery in a wood, at Sandy, Bedfordshire, of the body of Dr. Walter Strover, of Hoxton, who Jiad been "mis sins since September 21 (says "Lloyd's' News" of October 18).

' TOBACCO: AND TOBACCO PIPES. (Froijv i'The Rol iqwary) Tlio true and ardent Nicotiiin lias ever adopted a pipe as the most perfect man ner of enjoying- tho' fragrant wood. In ovory clime and country the fumes of to bacco are inhaled through some kind of tube, and ;i collection of the world's pipes would contain more types of peculiarity than there are nation,s or tribes upon the face of the earth. Little more than a century ago a nation's pjpes were, as a rule, made of tho most suitable and avail able material found in their respective countries, and SOUK; peoples of necessity s:i!l adopt what seem to us very curious and strange devices. The natives of the Arctic regions smoke through a walrus tooth; in Assam and Jinrmah bamboo pipes ai'e used ; the tribes of New Guinea contrive sea .shells as bowls for their pipes: the aborigine of New Zealand has an elaborately-carved wooden pipe, em bellished with the typical grotesque fig ures so familiar in their native art; on the Yarlmml Ili...
