"BACK TO THE EAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD-POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

"RACK TO THE EAST!" t JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD POLITICS. (By T. G. Ivomai of Tokyo, in " The Westminster Gazette.") It will, I feel sure, interest, and niay, perhaps, surprise, my European friends ?o hear that the enlightened section of my Japanese compatriots consider the whites to be driven by a great sem conscious instinct Back to the Ea® This, they think, is perhaps due .o a faint recollection that the forefathers of the Europeans were originally un tral Asian emigrants, or to an moo*"" yearning for the immense riches of tne ancient world. The Crusades were an early manifestation of this hidden In stinct. The accidental discovery ot America was also due to this cry of uie heart, as is the steady Russian attrac tion towards the Far East. The world-famed Great Wall of China completely checked the on-rushing Mongolians from occupying the interior of the Celestial Empire, thus directing that huge and devastating human flood towards the West. Its sudden inunda tion of Europe resulted i...

BOAT RUNNING STORY OF A LONDON SALT [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

BOAT RUNNING STORY OF A LONDON SALT Most Londoners with a memory 01 Dockland, which includes some know ledge' of the Old Mahogany Bar and of Blackwall Pier when emigrants embarked there on sailing ships for ihe Antipodes (quarters of-beef sus pended on tackle abaft the ma^mast) ivould know how to get to Poverty Co'rner. Of course, that is not its name. Being 'so close to Leadenhall street it is more respectably christened. It is in close touch with the shipping of fices and the produce markets. There is a railway station near, and gath ered round are shops selling nautical instruments and charts, the offices or ship chandlers, and places where you may fit out apprentices for sea witn everything from the marine soap to the gold-laced cap. Standing on the kerb there, or lean ing against the walls, are men who might be permanent features of the landscape. They stand thoughtfully smoking, gazing into vacancy for hours at a time.

MAGIC WAND ALHAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

MAGIC "WAND ALIiAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. The magic wand—the conductor's baton—at the Alhambra is in new hands (says the Westminster Ga zette"). The magician is Mr John An who for seven years has been •'inductor for Mr Cyril Maude and r'irriy with Mr Louis Meyer at the Linnd Theatre, and has climbed to :he conductor's desk from a subordin ite place in the orchestra. When, last Saturday afternoon (De cember 10), Mr Ansell assumed his lew duties, he conducted the Alham •ra orchestra and generally took con rol of Alhambra revue and ballet ior the first time.

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. The Staintondale foxhounds have the reputation of being the oldest pack in the country. It is a claim which does not go unchallenged, even in Y°rK shire, but it rests on the authentic ground that a charter was granted by the Norman King Stephen in the 12 th century to some monks in the monast ery of Staintondale to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on the moors between, that place and Scarborough. "I cannot vouch for this remote an tiquity," said Mr Halliday Huggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who,' as sec retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). "The farthest we can go back in actual re cords is the memory of an old man of 86, who remembers his grandfaher hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to the beginning- 01 the nineteenth century, and there is a song, written in 1S11, 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 ...

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS The prominence given to pearls by the proceedings in connection with the theft of Mr Max Mayer's necklace, which he valued at £140,000, has called attention to the immense sums paid for these gemn. Pearls are now the most fashionable jewels, and women buyers take care to secure a shade to match their complexion (according to ' The Daily Mail"). "Dark or yellow pearls," said Mr Mayer, "become dark women, while light pearls are worn to better advan tage by women of fair complexion. In recent years the demand for pearls ha? .increased because the ostentatiousneas of diamonds and rubies often offend" • the taste. woman can easily wear £100,000 worth of pearls in excellent taste, but diamonds' worth £20,000 would be very obtnustive." THREE GOOD PEARLS Mr Mayer said that so fur as he. knew his famous necklace was the most valuable in existence, but it was pos sible that necklaces bought for a far less sum ten or fifteen years ago were now worth more than h...

MOTHER'S SUSPICION STRANGE SMELLING MEDICINE. A mother who was dissatisfied with the medicine which a doctor gave her child and sent it to the authorities for analysis gave evidence at an inquest at Newington yesterday (reports "The Daily News" on December 9).

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L.C.C. tramcars are "the latest thing". • A six months' experiment with them on tramcars running from the Ham mersmith depot is recommended by the Highways Committee of the L.C.C. Tile machines are to be fitted to the upper "saloon" decks. The proposal comes from a Mr A. H. Vincent, who is pre pared to pay a rent at the rate of £2/10/ per car each year. If the experiment is a success and the roof-covered cars over the tramway system generally are fitted with these boxes, the Highways Committee thinks that a revenue of nearly £4000 v/ould be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add, "the supply in the Council's tramcars of cheap and wholesome chocolate would confer a considerable benefit upon the passengers using the tramways" particularly in the ease of the all-night cars and the workmen's services. From automatic machines for choco late (says "The Daily News") it seems but an easy and natural step ...

A Progressive Institution. COROP PUBLIC LIBRARY. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the above Library was held in that institu- tion's reading room on Saturday evening last, when the president, Mr S. Furphy, presided. The treasurer, Mr E. Kerlin, pre- sented the balance sheet for the past 12 months, which was adopted after some discussion. It disclosed a most satisfactory state of affairs, both from a financial and social point of view. On a motion, pro- posed by the President, and se- conded by Mr A. Cattlin, it was unanimously decided to grant the librarian a bonus of L2 2s. During the evening reference was made by members to the pro- gress of the institution since its in- ception, some 26 years ago. Its first acting secretary, the late Mr Jamieson, was assisted by Mr Hicks as treasurer, and the late Mr Mathie- son, the one time schoolmaster, was librarian.

Colbinabbin Line. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 February 1914

Colbinabbin Line. ! The Colbiinabbin railway has now reached the temporary site, and may be said to be completed to that point. A fine stack of grain, comprising some 45,000 bags, is now on the siding, ready for trucking away. The first two trucks were sent last week. Cr McKee, of the Waranga Shire, was, it is under stood, one to make up the first truck sent from Colbinabbin, and everyone felt pleased that it had fallen to his lot to do so, and as he was one of the hardest workers in agitating for the line. Grain is still coming, but the rush may be said to be over. It is estimated about 70,000 bags or more will be sent Wanalta and Colbinabbin this sea son. Had the railway been com pleted to the terminus, and all con veniences provided, there would have been fully 70,000 bags at Co'lbinabbin alone, as a large por tion of the crop was carted to Rush worth and Elmore in the absence of means for weighing the grain, stackiug, etc. However, the sur veyors are now at work completing the s...
