THE ROSELEAF ROMANCE [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

THE ROSELEAF ROMANCE (By R. T, Chandler in "The West minster Gazette.") It was one of those rare accom plished first novels which scorn lo find their publisher and (heir public as easily as love finds its young dream. It appeared under the. auspices of a fine old Arm, anonymously, though tne fashion is out of date, and the woild seized upon it at once. "A true rose leaf romancc, delicate as sea-spray in June, yet glittering and keen as dia mond dust," wrote the wise, austere critics of the reviews who have read all books in all languages. "> ou sim ply must read it," said the feminine population to its friends, and even the great unpublished were not ashamed to be seen reading it. created something loss than a futoi.', perhaps, but far more than a siiccch d'estlme.

A Gentle Reminder. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

A Gentle Reminder. A native of a small village In Scot land, having "made good" in "furrin parts," returned home, and, to show his more unfortunate brethren at home how little he valued £ s. d., ho presented a brand new umbrella stand 4o the "auld kirk." In accordance with the usual custom the presenta tion was announced by the 'beadle on the Sabbath, just before the service started.

TOLSTOI DIARIES [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

TOLSTOI DIARIES The long-drawn-out dispute over the Tolstoy manuscripts has entered upon a new phase, according to the Russian journal "Retell." The main point of contention is that the Countess S. A. Tolstoy refuses to hand oyer to her daughter, Alexandra Tolstoy, the manu scripts which are being preserved in the historical museum at Moscow. Among these manuscripts is a collection of Tolstoy diaries relating to the closing years of the last century. Alexandra Tolstoy, according to her father's will, regards herself >as the owners of the diaries, but in order to end the struggle she has agreed to give up her rights of ownership of the diaries and content herself with the rights of publication. She has pro posed to her mother that the diaries be entrusted to a third party having the confidence of both sides, with the object of photographing the diaries and of supplying each side with a copy.

Sundry Pars. RACE MEETING ABANDONED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

Sundry Pars. RACE MEETING ABANDONED. Owing to insufficient entries being received, the officials of the Lismore Turf Club met on Wednesday afternoon and decided to abandon the races fixed for April 4. Racehorses have been hardworked of late, and owners are dis inclined to run them for fear of injuring I their legs on the hard tracks. The j Beaufort races had to be abandoned for j the same reason. LISMORE PETTY SESSIONS. Messrs A. Thomson, E. Currie, and A. S. Liston, J.'sP., sat at the Lismore petty sessions court on Wednesday.

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

A TRUE STORY. A number of years ago some miners in Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, found the body of u young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir cumstances. No one in the district had l>een missed within their remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring in the oldest inhabitant-an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life. When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange thing occurred. The old lady fell 011 r.he corpse, and kisseu it, and address ed it by every term of endearment spoken in a bygone generation. He was her only love, and she had waited for him her long life. She knew he had not forsaken her. The old lady and young man had been betrothed sixty years before. Her. lover had disappeared myseriously, and she had kept her faith dur...

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. Under a costly canopy iThe village blacksmith aits, Before him is a touting car, Broken to little ibits, And the owner, and the chauffeur, too. Have almost lost their wits. The village "blacksmith smiles with, glee As he lights his fat cigar; He tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car; And the owner, and the chauffur, too, Stand humbly where they are. The children going home from school Look in at the open door; They like to see him make his (bills, And hear the owners roar; And the chauffeur weep, as they de clare They ne'er paid that 'before. He goes each morning to the bank, And salts away his casli; A 'high silk hat and long frock coat Help him to cut a dash. But the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died, The smith does not repine; His humble shop has grown into A ibuilding big and fine. And it bears "Garage" above the door On»a large electric sign.

FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND On several occasions "The Daily Ex press" lias called attention to the in congruities connected with the cham pionship titles that go with the Lons dale boxing belts. There is nothing wrong with the belts themselves, it says, nor with the methods imposed Cor acquiring them. Although belts do not make champions, the introduction ol these trophies into boxing has brought about a most desirable improvement in the sport. To eliminate the belt interest from boxing now would be wiping out one of the greatest inducements for aspirants to fame and fortune to keep on the path to success. To drop belt interest would be to curtail, if not almost entirely era dicate, public interest in the more im portant boxing matches. Conditions have arisen, however, for which the framers of belt rules made no allowance. The rules, excellent in their way, fail to provide for one con tingency, and the fact has lately been brought home with increasing em phasis. T...

CHARMS OF THE CAT POPULAR PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

CHARMS OF THE CAT POPULAR PETS. (By a Cat Lover). "The best way to keep a cat is to let it keep itself," .seems to be the general rule among most owners of that popu lar pet. This, no doubt, may be all very well for the nondescript "tabbies" and "blacks" which inhabit the majo rity of homes, but It is a most disas trous treatment for all the beautiful highly bred creatures who arc gradu ally ousting the common cat l'rorn aris tocratic houses. Once one has felt the artistic delight of owning a lovely blue, smoke, white, or other Persian, it is almost impossible to be satisfied again with tiie ordinary short-haired mon grel. There is a general impression that all pure-bred cats are r-xtremely delicate. This wrong idea is due to the fact that bo many people are entirely ignorant as to the proper methods of feeding and keeping cats generally. They either let them run wild and feed them irregu larly (if at all), or go to the other ex treme arid coddle them as if they were as tender as ho...

"MADE LIFE A MISERY" [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

"MADE LIFE A MISERY" The story of a man and woman's struggle in a Kensington flat in the- - darkness of the early morning in wnich the man wag shot, and his throat was cut, was told at West London yester day (says "The Daily News" of Janu ary 23), when the woman, Julia Decies, . was charged with attempting to mur der Basil Piffard. The couple went out on the evening of January 14, and early next morning, the servant girl was awakened by the noise of smashing glass and a banging on her door. The passage and ^kitchen were in darkness. In the latter when she switched on the light she saw Piffard holding down the woman with one hand, and holding out a revolver with the other. When she went to call a doctor and the police she noticed that the woman held a knife. Decies had told her, she said, that Piffard had' taunted her about another girl. Dr Armstrong said Piffard told him. "This woman has shot me." He had a wound over the eye, and his throat waff cut. The woman said she had done it b...

COURT OF ARCHES [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

COURT OF ARCHES At a dinner of the Authors' Club on Monday (says "The Times" of Janu ary 1G) Kir Lewis Dibdin, K.C., Dean of the Arches, gave an extraordin arily interesting account of the ad ventures of the lost or forgotten re cords of the Court of Arches. These records, which were kept in various places after the Fire of London, were removed in 18G5 from St. Paul's Cathedral to Lambeth Palace, where they lay buried for nearly 40 years "in a deep stratum of London soot and dust!" and the nature and value of their contents have only just been discovered. On becoming Dean of the Arches in 190.',' Sir Lewis Dibdin did what he could to explore the room in which the documents were kept; but it was not until the summer of iast year, when he was helped by the Rev. Claude Jenkins, librarian of Lambeth, that he was able to go through them They cover a period of 200 years, from 1GG0 to 185G, and provide a set o£ precedents, about 2000 in number, de cided in the principal ecclesiastical Cour...

STATE GOVERNORS FUTURE APPOINTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

STATE GOVERNORS FUTURE APPOINTMENTS (By H. Iv. Ellison, in "Westminster Gazette.") The question as to whether local men should be appointed as State Go vernors In Australia Is one which crops up periodically, and in view of the cable which appeared in the Lon don Press on December 19, it is per haps of more than passing interest to give some information which has no little bearing upon the cable in ques tion. The cable states that the West Australia Legislative Assembly peti tioned the Home Government, asking that the office of Governor of that State might be filled by a citizen of the Commonwealth. The Colonial Secretary replied that a change in tho system of appointing State Governors could not be entertained unless it ap plied to all Australian States, and until public opinion in Australia was over whelmingly favorable to the proposal. It is not realised in England how strongly a section of the Australian public feels on the subject of locally appointed Governors, and this opinio...

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY Winter sports in Norway (writes a correspondent in "The Times") are the amusement of the people. They might really be called democratic if the word were not habitually used to denote Something disagreeable and unpopular. For there is hardly a man or woman in Norway under middle age, except tl'e infirm, who does not spend most of his or'her spare time struggling with the laws of gravity in the winter months, And there are . five of these winter months at the very least, even at sea level; higher up they have never been counted, but enthusiasts take "a busman's holiday" by holding an an nual ski-jumping competition on 'Mid summer's Day somewhere in the moun» tains near Finse. 'Che strange thing is that the cult for winter sports is not much older in Nor way than elsewhere. Boys , have pre sumably always tried to slide down slopes somehow, and the morj3 leisur ed used to do a little skating; but, 40 years ago, it was not considered gen teel to run on ski. If you...

FAMOUS INSTITUTION [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

FAMOUS INSTITUTION An informative sketch of the history of the Foundling Hospital in Blooms bury was given by the Solieltor-Genc ral, Sir Stanley Buckmaster, K.C., in Mr Justice Joyce's Court yesterday, in an action by t/ho Crown against the governors of the hospital (says "The Daily News," January 21). The Court was asked for a declara tion that the defendants were not leg ally entitled to part with lands in Bloomsbury without the consent of the Board of Education (who took the place of the Charity Commissioners under the Charitable Trust Act, 1853), on the ground that the hospital was not a cha rity exempt from the provisions of the Act of '1853. ' The hospital, ,he said, could not claim exemption unless it was a mixed char ity-partly maintaned by income from endowments and partly by voluntary subscriptions. At the present day the hospital had an income of upwards of £27,000 a year from its endowments, and received from voluntary annual subscriptions a sum of £11 a year. It also r...
