LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WILD TRIBES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914
LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WIL/D TKM3ES. We have received further despatches by mail from Mr Alan Ostler (says "The Kxpress" of December 9) supple menting the dramatic message dated November 23 published yesterday, sent from Gibeli by runners across Somali land and cabled from Aden. Yesterday's remarkable story, in which Mr Ostler described how he ex pelled a band of armed Abyssinian raid ers who were robbing and boating Bri tish tribesmen, proves that the Abys slnians, as well as the followers of the Mad Mullah, are in the habit of raiding the friendly tribes in British territory who have been left without protection by the British Government. The following despatch, dated more than a fortnight earlier than the cabled message, shows that Mr Ostler has had dilliculty in evading Abyssinian watchfulness. A previous message de scribed how the Abyssinians, in collu sion with the British authorities at tempted to prevent him from entering British territory owing to the desire there is to conc...

"BACK TO THE EAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLDPOLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914
"BACK TO THE EAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD POLITICS. (By T. G. Konmi of Tokyo, in " The Westminster Gazette/') It will, I feci sure, interest, and may, I perhaps, surprise, my European friends I to hear that the enlightened section of ; my Japanese compatriots consider the whites to be driven by a great semi conscious instinct 44 Back to the East!" This, they think, is perhaps due to a faint recollection that the forefathers of the Europeans were originally Cen tral Asian emigrants, or to an inborn yearning for the immense riches of the ancient world. The Crusades were an early manifestation of this hidden in stinct. The accidental discovery of America was also duo to this cry of the heart, as is the steady Russian attrac tion towards the Far East. The world-famed Great Wall of China completely checked the on-rushlng Mongolians from occupying the interior of the Celestial Empire, thus directing that huge and devastating human Hood towards the West. Its sudden inunda tion of Europe r...

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS The prominenco given to pearls by the proceedings in connection with the theft of Mr Max (Mayer's necklace, which he valued at £110,000, lias called attention to the immense sums paid for these gemr, Pearls are now the most fashionable jewels, and women buyers take care to secure a shade to match their complexion (according to "The.

The magician Is Mr John An sel!. who for seven years ha« been conductor for Mr Cyril Maude and latterly with Mr Louis Meyer at the Strand Theatre, • and has climbed to the conductor's desk from a subordin ate place in the orchestra. When, last Saturday afternoon (De cember 10), Mr Ansell assumed his new duties, he conducted the Alham bra orchestra and generally took con trol of Alhambra revue and ballet for the first time. But the only re spect in which Alhambra habitues could observe any difference from normal happenings was that the prin cipals made a point of bowing nicely —and quite noticeably—to the con ductor upon entering the stage. By the middle of this week even the most observant of critics might have supposed that Mr Ansell had spent bis life conducting at the Alhambra.

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914
FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. The Staintondalc foxhounds have the reputation of being tho oldest pack in the country, at is a claim which docs not so unchallenged, even in York shire, but it rests on the authentic ground that a charter was granted by the Norman King Stephen in the 12th century to some monks in tho monast ery of Staintondalc to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on tho moors between that place and Scarborough. "I cannot vouch for this remote an tiquity," said Mr Halliday I-luggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who, as sec retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). "The farthest wo can go back in actual re cords is tho memory of an old man of S6, who remembers his grandfaher hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to tho beginning oC the nineteenth century, and there is a song, written In 1811, which commem* morates a famous run of that year, so that the hunt can certainly boast a re spectable age. It is a farmers* hunt first and f...
