SLEEP IN CHURCH [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914
SLEEP IN. CHURCH Clergymen will be glad to hear that it is not the sermon that sends the lis tener to sleep. According to the "Reli glous .Telescope," the official organ of the United Brethren, of Dayton, Ohio, somnolence is often due- to the sober color scheme of the church. The dull colors whIch prevail, especially brown, are soporofic.

RACE FEELING [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914
RACE FEELING "A feature that strikes the returning traveller after a few- years' absence in Asia or South America is the submerg ing of English race feeling under a sea of cosmopolitanism," says the "Re feree." "Among Englishmen born and bred there seeras to be. a consensus of Impotent. dismay at the destruction:'o. Englfsh race feeling." . . -------,--____ Two farmers met in a western town aday or two alter a cyclone 'hbd vlisited that par ticular neighborhood.

NAVAL HOLIDAY APPEAL FOR AGREEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914
NAVAL HOLIDAY- , APPEAL FOR AGREEMENT. h Berlin, November 17.--The "Frie - denswarte," the organ of German u and Austrian Pclfists, contains an u ai'ticle by the naval publicist Cap tain Perslus, In which an unquali fled appeal is made for an agreement or understanding on the basis of Mr h Churchill's recent speeches (writes the h Berlin correspondent of the "West- tl minster Gazette" on November 17). 11 Captain Persius has lately been identified with the "Freisinn," quasi- « Pacifist Press; and his views are cer tainly not the views held in authori- d tative circles; but as he criticised t severely the details of Mr Churchill's h Guildhall speech, his approval of the principle of the British initiative has some weight. PRESS ATTITUDE. h Captain Persius protests.against the p attitude of the Press towards the h Churchill speeches. He puts it down a to the fact that newspapers cannot " resist the unpaid articles supplied to n them by the Navy League. This ex planation goes too far, b...
THE BLACK KNIGHT CLEANING NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914
THE BLACK K1NIiHT CLEANING NEEDED. It must be rather trying to be a statue. People can stand and stare at you ,and even comment upon your personal appearance, without expos ing themselves to any charge of rude ness. No sense of delicacy restrains them from suggesting, if the idea strikes them, that you are dirty and uncared for. That is what is troubling Sir Henry Irving just now (says the "Westminster Gazette.") Sir Henry's situation is one that befits him thoroughly. As an artist he has no compunction in turning his back on the National Portrait Gallery. As a shrewd, sensible man, essentially modern, he fixes a rather anxious gaze upon the motor 'buses as they dash towards him down Charing Cross road, wondering, no doubt, when one of them will fail to answer its helm and dash itself against his pedestal. Like every other actor-manager, he has cast aside the trammels of the theatre, and wears the frock coat that, a few years ago, stood for eminent respectability, with. the doctor's...

HIOPEFUL DECLARATIONS.

MODERN WITCHCRAFT BLACK ARTS AND CHARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914
MODERN WITCHCRAFT BLACK ARTS AND CHARMS. Bent on a quest for further evidence of the survival of witches and witch craft (supplementing the interesting Information published in these columns on the authority of the editor of "Folk Lore"), says the "Daily News" re presentative of November 17, had the fortune to find his way into a veritable museum of magic. In a ground-floor study in a Croydon villa, Mr Edward Lovett, a well-known member of the Folk Lore Society, has set out, so far as room permits, some of the fruits of thirty years' investi gation into the popular beliefs and su perstitions of many lands. Mascots and amulets in a hundred different woods and metals crowd the walls; cabinets are packed with speci mens collected from every country in Europe; shelves strain with volumes on folk-lore and anthropology; and rows of manuscript books record the result of their owner's researches. Among them all Mr Lovett moves quickly to and fro, laying now on this treasure, now on that, th...
POSTAGE STAMPS DUTCH CENTENARY [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 30 January 1914
FOSAiE SiTA~WS DUTCH CENTENARY (By Fred J. Melville, .in the "Daily Telegraph.") In the early part of this year there was added to our albums one of the finest series of stamps of historical as- sociations ever issued, in the Russian set commemorative of the Tercentenary of the Romanof dyna. ty. Now, towards the close of the year, Holland has emulated the example of Russia, and has issued a set of stamps to mark the centenary of the accession of William I. to the throne of the Netherlands. The Dutch series does not present the variety of portraiture, nor the same attractiveness of design and color, found.in the Ru:sian series, but the stamps are well engraved and printed bythe historic firm of Enschede and Sons, of Haarlem. They are of large, upright, oblong shape, and depict portraits of William I. and his successors of the same name down to the present occupant of the throne, Queen Wilhelmina. The values, with their respective portraits and colors, are 21 cents., deep green on gre...

CABLEGRAMS. PEUTEBa's SPEoIAUS. THE POPE'S DANCE. SUBSTITUTE FOR TANGO. NEW PARIS CRAZE. PARIS, Wednesday. A very interesting statement in reference to the Papal attitude toward the much discussed Tango dance was made to-diy by "Le Temps," the well known Parisian daily. The Tango was recently condemned as an indecent dance by Cardinal Amette, Archbishop of Paris. b "Le Temps" states that after ques tioning several people in regard to the alleged immorality of the Tango, the Pope decided to judge for himself. Ac cordingly, two youthful aristocrats gave a demonstration of tae dance before His Holiness. At the conclu sion of the Tango, the Pope is said to have remarked, "'Well, my children, you take your amusements very sad ly," and to have advised them to sub stitute the Vatican Furlana for the Tango. "Le Tenips" adds that the Furlana is already being practised in Paris, where it has been nicknamed " the Pope's dance."
