LONDON NIGHT CLUBS DRINK AND DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
LONDON NIGHT CLUBS DRINK AND DANCE. ~ «\A#1orrI TCNP-LIEH There was a time in modern English history when the night-bird was with out honor - a rather disreputable crea ture indeed, good enough in a music hall song, but not nice in a drawing room. Two-in-the-morning courage might be all very well (for other people) but two-in-the-morning plea sure was only excusable at a ball. The institution of the night club is beginning to change all that, writes a member of "The Daily News" staff who is in touch with West End life. As yet comparatively few people know, but everyone is talking. The night life of .London is developing swiftly. Things have happend in the past few months that are going to leave a per manent mark on the social habits of the moneyed set, and may add a Gayest City to the gay cities of Europe. NEW IMPRESSIONS. A visit to one. of the really smart night clubs that have sprung up re cently in the heart of the West End would be a revelation to the man whose ideas of metropo...

AMERICA HAS LAND TROUBLES It appears that the United States have their agricultural troubles (says "The Westminster Gazette.") Presi dent Brown, of the New York Central Railway, who has retired from business to devote the rest of his life to farming, has retired from business to devote the rest of his life to farming, lias been ujiburthenening his mind on the sub ject. He points out that during the last ten years American farmers have produced only an average of 14 bushels of wheat to the acre ,as compared with 28 in Germany and 32 in the United Kingdom ,and be believes that unless production can be immediately stimu lated the consumption of foodstuffs in America will overtake the supply. For there is no prospect of any increase in the arable land, and all that can be done is ta improve farming, which he declares to be very bad. For this pur pose each State, according to President Brown, should have an experimental farm and a training school for agricul turists. If this is not done ...

HUMOR OF SERIOUS THINGS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
HUMOR OF SERIOUS THINGS (By -Alec Johnston in "The Glasgow Weekly Herald.") The world is in danger of being divided into the people who regard serious things seriously and people who regard them entirely as a joke. Military training, strikes; marriages, and other necessities of civilisation have attained permanent rank as serious tilings; and to treat them ac tively as anything else Is to incur the displeasure of society at large - no doubt rightly, from society's point of view. But the difficulty about such matters, from the humorist's point of view, is the ridiculous way in which they give themselves airs. Military training ties itself up in a peculiar brand of red tape, which lends sacro sanctity to its most trivial transac tions. The soldier must, of course, "always keep his rifle and himself just so." To this end our Govern ment, be' it Liberal or Conservative -another of our serious and neces sary jokes-spends some millions a year in equipping our skeleton army with dress and ...

RELIGION AND LABOR BROTHERHOOD THROUGH BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
RELIGION AND LABOR |; HOT IIKUHOOD THROUGH BUSINESS. Mr. J. Ramsay Maedonalil. M.P., writ ing on Keligion and the Labor Move ment in the "Constructive Quarterly," says: "][ the Labor Movement is not filling church pews, that it not because it has abandoned Christianity, but because it has turned away from the Church for its worship-two totally different things. "The conclusion t" which r came is that, it', on the one hand, the Church cannot retain the confidence of the ac tive spirits in the Labor and Socialist movement it will cut itself off more and more from ilu* spiritual life of the people; it will become more and moro llit barren fig tree which cumbers the ground; outside its walls and in places not blessed by it the Gospel will be preached. LABOR AND RELIGION. "On the other hand, should anything happen which will alienate the Labor Movement from religious faith, it will become more and more destructive and negative in its outlook, harder and more economic in its inspiration, ...
DEAD MAN IN A CHIMNEY GRUESOME DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
DEAD MAN IN A CHIMNEY GRUESOME DISCOVERY. Mr Kiplin's guesome story, "Tile Re turn of Imray," was reproduced in real life at Aumur, near Dole (says tlio Paris correspondent of "The Daily Ex press"). A man named Rollin, a notorious drunkard and something of a bad character, disappeared on the last day of the year. Yesterday, as nothing had been heard of him, his relatives pro ceeded to make an inventory of the things in his house, when one of them noticed that the chimney did not draw. As in Kipling's story, a dog which had always refused to enter the living room since Rollin's disappearance showed signs of great uneasiness, and slowly, as in the story, something heavy which sagged in the middle was seen to appear, and then to fall into the fireplace. It was the body of Rol lin. it is thought that, returning home alter celebrating the Xew Year with some freedom, Roliin, who had left his keys at home, had tried to get into his house by climbing down the chim ney. had stuck in it, and ...
CARNIVAL IN SLUMS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
CARNIVAL IN SLUMS True lo tradition (says ''The Daily News and Loader" of December 27). London devoted itself to the pursuit of pleasure on Roxing Day. There were enormous crowds at the football matches and in the parks during the day, and packed houses at the theatres and picture palaces at night. Particularly say wore the scenes in London's many mean streets, -where the Tango and the barrel organ were supreme. There was a curious air of Carnival about tile motor-buses, tco. Many of these vehicles had been specially char tered for a trip round town, and passers-by were cheerily greeted by festive spirits whose identity was con cealed behind comical masks and fancy dress. A notable fact revealed by the re turns of football spectators is that al though Tottenham (lotspur drew 37.1X10 people to their ground, there were still 30,OM lookers-on to spare for the Wool wich Arsenal ground, which is also in North London.
THE SKUNK [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
THE SKUNIC One natural result of the recent boom in furs (says "The Westminster Gazette'') is an attempt to breed fur bcaring animals in England. In this connection a large consignment ot North American skunlcs lias lately ar rived, some of which will shortly be established l>y Mr Jlervyn Chute in a large hillside enclosure on his estate in Northumberland. Despite a malodor ous reputation, the skunk seems a dainty feeder, subsisting chiefly on in sects. and it is considered doubtful whether sufficient food of the correct kind can be procured. iloreover, the value of the fur produced may be af ccted by our milder climate. Apart from the fur, the terrible fetid fluid for which this animal is notorious is valu »ole medicinally, being prescribed for isthma: though an asthmatic clergy nan, who took a bottle of it into the wlpit to inlialo when his breath screw troublesome, found that ho had reliev d his malady, but dispersed the con gregation. The SOO-feet-high building is to be erect...

I HEALTH OF THE CHILD IJESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND (By Mrs. J. A. I-Iobson in "Daily News and Leader.") There are many important things to he done in England before she can vindicate lier claim to be a pattern of civilisation. About three of these things public opinion has been aroused, and we are promised small holdings, better housing, and higher wages. But if we are to reap the full benefit of these reforms there is a fourth no less important question which is just beginning to attract attention. What is the character of the homes in which tho majority of the nation's children aro being dragged up to-day? For both health and illness, like charity, begin at home. The difficul ties, although largely economic, are not entirely so. The medical officer of Islington says in a recent report: "There are far too many men who earn good wages living in homes that are most unsatisfactory in every way," and declares the ignorance of the working man's wife to be "something appalling"; that she is ...
TUACKERAY'S DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
TUACKEHAY'S DliA'lI I On Christmas Eve, 1SG3 - fifty years ago-Thackeray died unexpectedly. The last words lie corrected in print were (says "The "Westminster Gazette") "Ami my heart throbbed with an rxnulsltc bliss." To Dickens a week earlier he had laughingly described a new remedy he had had it in his mind to try for an indisposition that had kept liir.i to his bed for three days. "He was cheerful and looked very bright." A perusal of his latest writings convinced Dickens that his once estranged friend >vas in the healthiest vigor of his powts, and in reference to the above senU nee he wrote: "God grant that on thai . 'hrist mas Eve when he laid his head buck on his pillow aiul threw up hi:; arms, as lie was wont to do when very weary, some consciousness of duty dim", and of Christian hope throughout life humbly cherished, may have tan-eel his own heart so to throb when he passed away to his Redeemer's rest." lie was found peacefully lying as above de scribed, composed, undist...
"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 19 March 1914
"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE (By Duncan Swann In " Tho Daily Mail.") It was her long mauve logs -Anti tho bow to match in her hair that first at tracted me as I leant aqainst the ball room wall idly watching the gyrations of the dancers. She was waltzing with a youth from Eton at the time, of the samo immature age as herself, and wore a look of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unskilled movements of her partner, partly to the fact that the occasion was that anoma lous function, a Christmas party, at which all ages from 12 to 70 aro repre sented and the young married women arc in unfair request. Just as the band struck up the next item I crossed to where she was wrin-^ kling her pretty forehead over the hieroglyphics on her programme. "Aro you engaged for this?" I asked, with tho unconscious patronage of the forties towards the teens. "I don't think we've been introduced," she replied with hauteur, tossing a mass of fair hair out of her eyes. "I-I beg your pardon," I stamme...

It was the use of wireless telegraphy that repaired the- error of the old fashioned mail system, for during her passage across the Atlantic Mrs Tomp son received by Marconigram a pro posal of marriage from an old suitor, Mr F. Macintyre, who is now living at Superior, "Wisconsin. Mrs Tompson and Mr Macintyre were boy and girl lovers in Scotland, both being residents of Leith, and the latter wont to America to multc his fortune.

ACTRESS'S 89TH BIRTHDAY Yesterday that line actress, Mrs John Billington, entered her OOtlv year (says "The Daily Telegraph" of Janu ary a) and her many friends in and outside the profession will be delighted to know that, in spite of her great age and precarious health, she preserves all her vigor of mind, together with that cheerfulness of spirit which has always been one of her most endearing characteristics. Mrs Billington's youthful successes were achieved in the early days of Queen Victoria's reign, when theatres were few,and salaries low; hut friends were plenty.
