TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 March 1914
TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE "Since November 15 every tramp and vagabond found wandering In France has been taken Into the police stations to be measured and photographed, and sent out with a document giving all particulars regarding their persons and past record," says "The Daily Graphic." "This paper they must produce at any moment for verification. All this is in accordance with a law passed in 1912 making1 it compulsory for three classes who habitually use the roads to so re gister themselves. These classes arc itinerant dealers and pedlars at fairs and markets and tramps and vaga bonds. "Regarding the first two classes, the new law is more protective than vexa tious. Though they have to declare themselves, the mere production of their papers will at once show their bona fides, and a number which all must carry will allow headquarters to learn at once the history of all the wan dering family.

The "Thrjgs" Tcstirnonisf. .On November 10, ISil, the com .mi.ttee which had been appointed VP consider what should be done with the testimonial subscribed, for by City and provincial companies and bankers, in grateful acknowledgment of a signal service rendered to the commercial world by the "Times" newspaper, announced their decision to an interested public. •This service afforded a very re markable instance of the power of tjb.e Press. Early in 1811 the I'aris correspondent of the 'Times " re ceived information of an enormous schcme that was said to he form i«g on the Continent to defraud by forgery all the influential bankers of Europe. The appearance of his let ter in the "Times," revealing the plot caused a tremendous sensation. To follow all the intricacies of the case and describe the results would be too tedious. Sufficient to say that an action for libel was brought against the proprietors of the "Times," and enormous expenditure was necessary in order to obtain evi dence ...

Magnifying /,000,000,ooo.ooo Times. Just imagine seeing things .through a magnifying glass millions and mil lions of times more powerful than the most powerful microscope on earth to-day. Imagine what a tiny drop of water would look like magnified until it appeared as big as the earth itself. ■ Up until a j very short time ago the spectro scope was the finest instrument of. analysis available for chemical ano scientific research. If, after vainly trying all other tests, the scientist .wished to know of what some mixed substance was made he burned it and converted it into gns and . directed a ray of the gas against a prism of glass> This prism broke the light up into a band pf colours streaked with dark lines. By examining the lines and the colours the scientists was able ■ jto tell. of what the burnt substance was composed. And now an instru ment which is declared to be , one million .times more exact than Ahe spectroscope is being test ed by Sir «J. j. Thomson, wliose recent res...
MAN IN THE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 March 1914
MAN IN THE FUTURE "That man is formed for the future, that the very structure and shape o 1 his soul points and urges him onward, is, perhaps, the surest of all pledges about his future" (writes "J.B." in "The Christian World"). "Our fac ulties will find what they seek, what they seem made for. The eye finds light, the ear finds sound, the hand the thousand things that match its activities. "And man's prophetic element, as it develops, as it clears itself from the falsities which tempt its cruder efforts, as it learns its true nature and its true direction, will become more and more a pointer of the way. "The seer, what is he? Is he not just the man who sees deeper than others, more clearly than others; sees right into the heart of things, into the essential equality of being; one who, from an accurate knowledge of the great spiritual forces at work in the world, can predict how they will act, and what results will come from this action? This it is which has made the prophets—the tr...

HOMES WITHOUT DOORS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 March 1914
HOMES WITHOUT DOORS (By George A. Birmingham, in "The Daily tVlaU") Members of great and conquering na- ' tions are able to impose their own fav orite customs upon the peoples among ! whom they travel. The English, for in- I stance, have spread uie na.j.t or ur.lin ing tea in the afternoon all over Europe, forcing on extra meal every day on the naturally abstemious LaUii peoples. The Americans have insisted on having all the chief hotels in Europe heated to scuh ai extent that the origi nal inhabitants of the Continent go about gasping. The French, though they do not travel much, have taught everybody in the world to write lists of cooked food in their language and to call the lists menus. It is, I think, to the Germans that we owe the fact that wc can smoke in the restaurant-cara belonging to the International Company of Wagons-llts, in spite of notices put up in several languages forbidding the practice. But we others, who belong to small nations, have neither the power nor the ri...
