Following tile lead given by the United States, a large number of people gathered at the Whitehall [Loonms to express their approv;al of a Bill intended to prohibit the inm portation into the U'nited Kingdom of the skins and plumes of certain birdis. Sir IHarry Johnson, the famous traveller, who presided, said if there were no insects, ticks, molluscs. or worms, two-thirds of the world's disueases woutld come to an enld, anlld for the. limitation of these pests there was no agency so potent as birds. If the normal protection of birds were diininisihed, crops and orchards suffered. Farmers and fruit-growers of Soulthern E:ngland had comilained of the scarcity of swallows, due to the passion whirch1 prevailed in Italy and France for the destruction of snmll birds.

The Divorce Town. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
The Divorce Town. Nevada's divorce trade. with its headquarters at. lueno, must soon slow down under the new law, which brings Nevalda in most essen tials into line with the other States as regards divorce. Hitherto an applicant could arrive at R?eno one day, remain a week or two, enjoying society amongst the divorce colony, and then suddenly migrate, with the object of not returning for another six months, when the case is down for hearing. Henceforth to secure a Ileno decree one must actually live within the State for a year. It was still possible, however, to take advantage of the law up till June 30th, and this was the cause of a great rush to the city right up to the last moment. The throng of new-comrers experienced great dii ficulty in securing apartments, the hotels and boa irding-houises being crowded to bursting point. If cold baked potatoes are dipped for a moniment in hot water and then placed in a moderate oven till warmed through they are quite as nice as if freshly ba...
