"BACK TO THE EAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD-POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 20 February 1914

"BACK TO THE HAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD POLITICS. (By T. G. Komai of Tokyo, In " The Westminster Gazette.") It will, I feel sure, Interest, and may, perhaps, surprise, my European friends j to hear that the enlightened section of my Japanese compatriots consider tho whites to be driven by a great semi conscious instinct " Back to the Eus'.l" This, they think, is perhaps due f.o a faint recollection that tho forefathers of tho Europeans were originally Cen tral Asian emigrants, or to an inborn yearning for the immense riches of tho ancient world. Tho Crusades were an early manifestation of tills hidden in stinct. The accidental discovery of America was also due to this "cry of tho heart, as is the steady Russian attrac tion towards tho Far East. Tho world-famed Great Wall of China completely checked the on-fushing Mongolians from occupying tho interior of tho Celestial Empire, thus directing that huge and devastating human flood towards tho West.

Yesterday's remarkable story, in which Mr Ostler described how ho ex pelled a band of armed Abyssinian raid ers who were robbing and beating Bri tish tribesmen, proves that the Abys airilans, as well as the followers of the Mud Mullah, are In the habit of raiding tho. friendly trlb<-s in British territory who have been left without protection by iho British Government.

LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 20 February 1914

LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION' BEFORE COKDIAUTY. London receives the Man from Over sea like a coy maiden being* Intro duced to her brother's pal (writes "A Visiting Australian" In "The Daily Chronicle.") She's not going to take any risks: She holds him at arm's length to inspect him and watch him wriggle, and then, if ho makes the right impression, she may find a cor dial place for him. The colonial does pretty welt wher ever he goes (they tell me), because ho has developed In him that utter lack of respect for respected tradl ; tloiifl. He is like the American com mercial traveller—he can bo relied ! upon to "butt in." But tho colonial i usually does it very nicely. Ho ap proaches a situation circumspectly, and when the band begins to play. If ho isn't right up alongside tho stand ard-bearer or getlng choice secrets from tho drum-major, he Is a most disappointing sort of colonial. Nevertheless, among the many men I have known In tho Antipodes who have come to London, there have been qu...

MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller in an article In tho January "Hlbbcrt Jour nal" says:— THE FAMILY The family is tho only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to hind tho Individual's caprice'to travel In regular orbits, and to build up an or derly society out of the gravitation of social units. It is a successful mech anism just becauso It Is so much moro than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and economic life. Tho family lies at the roots both of tho school and of the factory, and of the Church, though all theso Institutions havo sometimes grown into unnatural forms which In jure and repudiate their origin.
