HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 12 March 1914

HEALTH OF THE CHILD j LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND (By Mrs. J. A. Hobaon in "Dally News and Leader.") Tliero are many important things to bo clone In England before she can vindicate her claim to bo a pattern of civilisation. About three of these things public opinion has been aroused, and we are promised small holdings, better houstng, and higher wages. Bui If we are to reap the full benoflt oi these reforms thero is a fourth no less important question which is just beginning to attract attention. What Is the character of the homes in which the majority of the nation's children are being dragged up to-day? For both health and illness, like charity, begin at home. The difficul ties, although largely economic, are not entirely so. The medical officer of Islington says In a recent report:— "There are far too many men who earn good wages living in homes that are most unsatisfactory in every way," and declares the ignorance of the yorking man's wife to. bo "something appalling"; that she is ...

She has to be always on the alert, and from the time she goes on duty till she conies off it's one constant strain—and if she is in charge of a big ward she is kept on her feet so much that sometimes she feels just ready to drop. I find a cup of "Robur" tea before I go on duty, and another after I come off keeps me right —I prefer the "Robur" to any other tea because it is pure, and because I've found it most refreshing—but there, you'll know all about it yourself when you try it—The No. 1 Grade is the tea you should get.

SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914

SIU AKTIICIt SULLIVAN'S OIIDEAL The death of Mr Francois Cellier, the Savoy conductor (says "The Westmin ster Gazette") recalls a dramatic sepi sode associated with the production of •'lolanthe" In 1882. That opera was tlio first of toic Gilbert and Sullivan series produced tit the Savoy, and Sir Arthur Sullivan had arranged with Mr Cellier personally to conduct the first perform ance. On tho morning: of the day fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich man, so successful I had been the four operas which had preceded "lolanthe"; but just as lie was about to leave home for the Savoy news reached him of the bankruptcy of the firm entrusted with his investments, and with that bankruptcy the whole or his savings disappeared. But in spite of this heavy blow he went to the theatre and conducted "lolanthe" be fore a crowded audience, which little knew that the famous composer was then as poor as the lowliest scene shifter behind the scenes.

PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914

PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES Signor Glacomo Puccini, the famous Italian composer, who has been pay ing a lightning visit to London, went last night to a rehearsal of "The Dir 'ing of the Gods," which Sir Herbert Tree is reviving at His Majesty's Thea tre, for the composer is in search of a subject for a new opera. "The chief reason for my presence in London to-day," he said to a "Daily Express" representative, "is pressure of private business. 1 But, at the same time, whenever 1 come to London I am always glad of the opportunity to visit the theatres, for I am a great admirer of the English stage, and so it comes 'hat I have made up my mind to see The Darling of the Gods.' in the hope that it might prove to be a suitable subject for an opera. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening, for I leave England for Italy at an early date.

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES (By Stephen Black, in "The Daily | Mail.") I The present trouble on the Hand, from where is drawn practically the whole of the world's regular gold supply, originated largely in the tragic deeds of last July 4 and 5. It may vaguely have come from still farther back, but shape and delinltion emerged six months ago. South Africa, the graveyard of states men's reputations, has problems which no other country on earth possesses; and the wisest men have failed time and again to cope with then). Certainly the Botha Government prior to last July understood little of the Hand's real soul; the soul of a wild, reck less race of men jumbled together among scholars, mining mathemati cians, younger sons, and other remit tance men. The same spirits Hint re belled against the Kruger Government and the children of these men are on the Rand to-day; and the fataftty of their affairs is that they are governed as Kruger governed them—from a town only thirty...
