AN ANCIENT LANDMARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 29 January 1914

AN ANCIENT LANDMARK. Australia has been described as a country so new that there is not an in- teresting ruin to be found on the con- tinent. Those whose duty takes them through some of the small back streets and alleys of the city and Collingwood may possibly consider there are many ruins, even though they may not be classed as interesting. We are, how- ever, now about to lose an old land- mark, which of late has became to some extent a ruin. This is the old   tower erected over 50 years ago at Don- caster by an old sea captain. The structure, whlch stands on a gentle eminence some ten miles east of the city, formed a rendezvous and a strong attraction for visitors, for the toilsome climb to the summit was repaid by the fine view obtained of all the surround- ing district. The neighborhood is de- voted to fruit growing, and one can best obtain a fair conception of the ex- tent of the industry by climbing to the summit of Doncaster tower. Alas, it   has now...

iIRL DRUGifiED A new raethod practised by white slavers to secure victims Is believed to have been discovered by the police of Newark, New Jersey (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Ex press" of December 6). It is alleged that they inject opiates into attractive girls during the darkness in moving picture theatres, and then pose as rela tives and carry them off. This system has been brought to light by the arrest last night, at a cinema palace at Newark. of Armand MIegaro, a South American employed as a chemist's assistant.

CONVICT SNOBS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914

CONVICT SNOBS There has been a movement for separate tables at meals among the convicts at the prison "hotel" at Camp Hill, Isle of Wight, where an attenipt is made to reform -convicts by special privileges (says the "Daily Mail"). Meal times at Camp Hill are social functions which the w-arders are not permitted to disturb. These old, habitual criminals, who have been granted many comforts by the autho rities, have after-dinner chats which are often of a strictly confidential nature. Lately a distinct "caste" feeling has sprung up. The more notorious men have formed a clique. They decline to discuss subjects with men of less repute. Apart from this purely pro fessional jealousy, there are sharp cleavages of opinion, religious, moral, and political, which have been so marked that further controversy on gentlemanly lines is out of the ques tion. The result is that things have not been so happy as formerly at the long tables in the diningroom. Several men have the habit of leaning acro...

"THE WITCH" SOUTH RUSSIAN EPISODE By Denis Garstin,.in the "Westminster Gazette." "I do not think," said Tropheme, "that she is altogether a witch, but she Is very awful. She is a hundred and fifty years old, and she has sixty cats. Once she quarrelled with her brother -long ago-and he killed her pet cat, and she did something very ter rible to him; I forget what she did, I think she killed him. :He died." Tropheme is a thoroughly untrust worthy in his narratives, but then no body, except himself, believes them. Whenever I had been to the village Tropheme wdold' hoVer" round my room in the hope of my having brought back some chocolate. The children often used to leave bogus packets about the gardens, and take delight in watching the big-bearded Russian workmen snatch up the empty temptations.

CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914

CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD -Ii EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. i Speaking at the Claremont Brother hood on Sunday afternoon on the social 1 life of Australia (says the "Isllngton t Gazette" of December 10), the Rev. Victor Bell said that the conditions were very similar to those prevailing in England. He believed that the ave rage drink bill was greater over here, but there were more drunkards in Aus tralia in proportion. Another falling that was very appar ent in New South Wales was the gam bling habit, and" these two were -the most difficult and hateful obstacles in the way of its reformers. In Sydney every man and boy seemed to be try ing to get sixpence without working for it. Gambling was degrading and brutal ising numbers of its inhabitants, and he considered that, on the whole, this vice had a far more degenerate effect on a man than drink. The aborigine of Australia had been quick to copy the white man in his vices. The speaker said that in his own township, where 230 acres had been al...

LONDON CURFEW HOTEL MANAGERS' COMPLAINT [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914

LONDON CURFEW HOTEL MANAGERS' COMPLAINT The growth of the supper club and the cult of the new Bohemianism in London are having an effect upon the big hotels and restaurants of the West End. All the places which for years have made a feature of after-theatre cater ing-the Savoy, Romano's, the Carlton, the Piccadilly, the Cecil, and Prince's are. feeling the consequences of a movement which every night takes from five to six hundred people to supper and dancing at the smart night clubs recently established in theatre land. A meeting of the London Hotel keepers' Association to-day gave at tention to the problem of how to meet the new competition that has arisen with the Tango craze and the tendency of society to indulge in early morning revels (says the "Evening News" of December 5). THEATRE RUSH The situation, almost in a nutshell, may be gathered from a conversation overheard outside one of the West End theatres last night. "What do you say to supper at the -?"

ENGAGING A HOUSEMAID POET'S CHOICE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914

ENiAGINQM A HOUSEMAID POET'S CHOICE (By P. H., in the "Westminster Gazette.") Charles is a poet. He isn't at all the kind of person who has long greasy hair, an absent air, and very bad manners. No, I am glad to say that from the outside no one could possible guess his poetical tendencies. He also never does eccentric things, such as talking aloud to himself in the streets, or walking down Bond-street with a tame flamingo on a piece of ribbon. The only occasion on which his be havior was not absolutely normal was when he engaged a housemaid. This doesn't sound at all poetical, but really it was most romantic. Of course he wasn't thinking of en gaging anyone at the moment. He had a perfectly good'housemaid. It waa only afterwards that the :other one came. But this is getting so involved that I shall begin at the beginning, and explain what really happened. Charles is accustomed to have an early breakfast in his study, which looks out across the street on to a hideous church, and furt...
