This was resented by the peo ple of Zabern, and a series of inci dents followed, culminating on Fri day last in an outbreak by the mili tary and the arrest of twenty-six citi zens.

DRESSED LYING DOWN [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 March 1914

DRESSED LYING DOWN Illusions are born to be destroyed, and last night another one received a death-blow (says tho "Daily Ex press" of January 7). Mr. Loudon Macqueen Douglas, the president of the Scottish Society, in a lecture in Edinburgh on "The Wearing1 of the Kilt," said that the tartan was not Scottish in its origin at all. "The kilt emerged from a confu sion of different types of dress," he said. "The ancient dress of Scotland, particularly in the northern parts of the country, was the breacan feile, of kilted plaid, which consisted of some seven to twelve yards of tartan sewn up the middle so as to form a plaid of double width, varying from four to six yards long by two yards wide. A portion of this length was laid on the ground with the belt under it, the lower and middle portion being then plaited so as to form a kilt, leav ing a flap at either side.

When the' process of- threshing is completed','" the straw is forked away and the' grain swept up for the mill. / ' Another curious custom they have which is quite laughable to the: stranger, and that is the way of, watering the roads.
