FREAK TROUSERS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 March 1914

FREAK TROUSERS Some of. us (says . "The Daily Tele graph" of January 7) remember Mr Walter Passmore's exultant exclama-: tion in "The Earl ancl the Girl"4-"It ain't the coat wot makes the man;-why, demme, it's the trousers." ■ So, evi dently, think certain sartorial experts in America, when they suggest, as we are told, that fashion is about .to pre scribe to the "nuts" on the other side,, nether garments that shall be "slashed" or "slit," just as women's skirts are, according- to the prevailing .vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up—as it were—endless pos sibilities. even to the average- male mind, We seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more ~ elaborately embroidered than they are now in Dudeland. Also do-there seem to loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bejewelled' shoe-strings, and dainty garters—with, perhaps, a bit of airy frilling thrown in. For. once; you open the floodgates of fashion at the. trousers seams from the knee down ward...

POSTAGE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES (By Fred. J. Melville, in "The Daily I ' Telegraph.") The Khedive Abbas Hilmi cele I brates this day the twenty-second an niversary of his accession (January 8, 1S92), and the new stamps of Egypt which have been ready for some time have been withheld for issue to-day. The new stamps have been expected ' for some months past, the intention of the authorities to have new stamps being, first announced in "The Daily Telegraph" in October, 1912. The cur rent number of "The Near East" pre sents a supplement giving illustrations of to-day's issue, showing the stamps to be distinctly Egyptian in design, and not less characteristic in execution of the typography of the London firm of Messrs De La Rue and Company Limited. As "The Near East" states, the most significant fact about the new issue is the use of English wording for Fi'ench; for "Poste Egyptiennes" is now substituted "Egypt Postage," and the value "Un Millieme" gives place to "One; Millieme," etc. All ...

The Influence of Heredity. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 March 1914

The Influence of Heredity. | In the course of a lecture in Mel bourne on Eugenics, Dr Jones. In- j spector-General of "the Insane, said j —The suggestion' that" weakn:ss i should marry strength and strength j marry weakness was quite ridicul ous. Francis Galton showed that only a few out of^ many.. children would be likely to differ from medi ocrity or' the normal, and -fewer still would differ, as .widely as the more exceptional of two parents. The more bountifully a parent was gifted by nature the more rare it would be ior him to beget a sou as richly endowed as himself, and still more rarely would he be likely to ! beget a son more richly endowed, j Some people said that a celebrated j artist or musician could not pass his I talent on to his children. There was I confusion and disagreement between j ' two schools of thought on this j point. .His personal belief was that ; such characteristics were inherited, or that at any rate the potentiality j of such inheritance was transmitt...
