Jack is practically the TUst of the family to keep in touch with the old town, excepting Mr Her bert Spencer, of Bendigo.

Our Show Ground. WHAT ABOUT THE RECREA TION RESERVE? TTo the Editor.) bir, — As a good deal of discussion has been going oil of late with re gard to the proposal to buy. a new site for show purposes, it lias been mentioned to me that as the present ground is too small for the growing requirements of our show that an effort should be made to make an exchange wUli the .Recreation re serve trustees and transfer the pro perties concerned. The Recreation site wonll be an ideal place for show purposes, whi'e the present show ground by tiie help cf a few arbor days and working bees, could be converted at small expense into a lovely little park for recreatiou purposes. The feeling has been growing of late that some such place should be established, and now I think, Mr Editor, that the oppo'tunity offeis to those who have the ,-velfare of our town and dist. ict at hsart to seize that oppor J tunity.

Quo Vadis. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

Quo Vadis. It is safe to say that never before has any cinematograph production attracted so much attention as has the remarkable Cines fil_i "Quo Vadis?" exhibited at a recent Mel bourne theatre fbr several weeks. In spite of the fact that-the prices were raised, money was refused at each performance, and every book able seat was sold twenty-four hours in advance. Afternoon and even ing, crowds waited to gain admit tance. The interior of the colossal building was 'a striking picture. As the film was announced, a hush came over the spectators. The silence was intense, when the cine-" matograph story began. At the end women were crying and men's eyes wers dimmed. "Quo Vadis" will be shown at the Lyric Theatre to-night.

CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE At the instance of a money-lender, Mr Daniel Wm. Cartan-Lee, barris ter-at-law, of Paper Buildings, Temple, was summoned at Bow street yesterday (reports "The Daily Mail," December 19) for obtaining credit for more than £20 without disclosing the fact that he was an undischarged bankrupt. It was alleged that in negotiating a loan of £400 (for which a bill for £500 payable in six months was given) the defendant told the money-lender, a Mr Swyers, that he had not been bankrupt. The bill had not been met. Mr Swyers, in cross-examination by Mr Huntley Jenkins, admitted that a statement in a circular he issued that he was "a retired business gentle man" was not true. Some of the testimonials in the circular were ficti tious. He had not said to a Mr Bal lantyne that all he wanted was to revenge himself on an Englishman as he had a brother-in-law who had been deported. "Truth" had de scribed him as "One of those harpies who bleed would-be' borrowers ...

COSTLY ROYAL HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

COSTLY ROYAL HABITS The Bavarian Finance Minister, in supporting a motion for the increase of the Bavarian King's Civil List to £270,000. observed, according to Dr Mullermeiningen, who opposed the vote (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Mail"), that the expenses of the royal shoots were not excessive, and it was better that royalty should shoot and hunt than run after Venus, which was still a more expensive oc cupation. Dr Mullermeiningen pro tested against the assumption that royalty must have expensive habits and that it is better to choose the less of two evils- "These are hard times for everybody," he declared, "and the Court must be sparing too."

LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WILD TRIBES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WII/D TRIBES We have received further aesp*" bv mail from Mr Alan Ostler ( y "The Express" of December 9) supple menting the dramatic mes^°® ent November 23 published yesterday, sent from Gibeli by runners across Soman 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 beating Bri tish tribesmen, proves that .the Abys sinians, 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 bv the British Government. The following despatch, dated more than a fortnight earlier than the cabled message, shows that Mr Ostler has had difficulty in evading Abyssinian watchfulness, a previous iucmoc uv 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 conceal from pu...

LOOP THE LOOP MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

LOOP THE LOOP MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT M. Leon Girod was the first mem ber of Parliament to "loop the loop" in an aeroplane (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Chronicle" on December 17). He accompanied.Pegoud as passen ger in a flight, in which the airman effected a series of six complete som ersaults. Describing his impressions, M. Girod said the most sensational moment is when the machine, having reached the summit of the circle, begins its descent. "Then," he added, "Lhe rush down wards is frightful. My toes gripped the bar rests as though they were fingers. Being now head downwards my shoulders seemed to try to burst through the straps which bound me. My heart appeared to contract, my throat filled as if I were about to cry. My chest swelled, and my head seemed to become a ball of lead weighing tons.

FIRE AT DOCK HISTORIC TOWER AND STORES DESTROYED. One of the most disastrous fires in the history of (lie Royal. Dockyard at Portsmouth took place on Saturdav night, and was only extinguished early yesterday morning, after two lives had been lost and damage had been done that is roughly estimated at half a mil lion m extent (reports "The Daily Ex press" of December 22).

They in clude warship models and valuable naval records.

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story comes from Baltimore about a family servant, says the New York "Nation." She came from Germany twenty seven years ago, has lived with one Baltimore family ever since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady saving. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but it is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated in the household in which she lived. It i3 not improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise in the matter of dress. But it is to be noted at once that there is nothing in the least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could put by a...

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEGGING [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEGGING The popular supposition that medi cine is an overcrowded profession is being exploded. The real truth is that there is an extraordinary shortage of doctors at the present moment .and men cannot be .found willing to accent public appointments.

Appointments which a little over n year ago would have brought fiftv ap plicants, have been advertised for six or eight months in the merlinnl 2 nals without bringing a single renlv in spite of the fact that the salaries have been increased by 100 per cent (says "The Daily Express").

TELEGRAPHIC PIONEER "WIRELESS EXPERIMENTS IN 1845 Mr J. W. Wilkins, whose death at Kingston-on-Thames at the age of S6 has been announced in these columns (says "The Daily News," December 23) was a pioneer of telegraphs and erected the world's first line. In July, 1845, when only IS years of age, he was appointed resident superintendent of the Northampton and Peterborough Telegraphs — the first appointment of the kind on any railway in the coun try. On the completion of the line from Rugby to London in 1S4G, Mr "Wilkins took entire charge, and also of the tem porary terminus in Seymour street, Euston Square. In that year the Queen's Speech at the opening of Parliament was for the first time telegraphed to about a dozen towns in the Midlands and the North of England. For this purpose the Speech had to be conveyed by special engine from Euston to Rugby, there being no telegraph south of that town at the time.
