FARM SCHOOL WHERE BOYS ARE TRAINED. Organised throu^n f c benevolence of a few men and women of this city (says "The Christian Science Monitor"), the Chicago Junior school, created for the purpose of teaching boys how to care for and support !hemi-'elvf.s, having successfully passed its Hist season, may now he regarded as an established in stitution. Tlie first season's operations of tlie school, on a 120-acre fa-m 011 Long lake in Michigan, ISO miles north-east o£ .Chicago, was so successful that plans are under way to double the attendance from 15 to 30 boys as soon as arrange ments can be made to accommodate them. The Chicago Junior school is an insti tution intended to teach boys to lean upon themselves, and not to look for charity for their support. The course ot instruction, under the direction of V. P. Randall, is a well-balanced sys tem of theoretical and practical teach ing, in which the boy earns half the cost of keeping him at the school, his parents or guardian paying th...

S.P.E. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
S.P.E. (By William Archer, in "Daily News and Leader.") Leaving to classical scholars all tlie witticisms to be extracted from the above letters, I hasten to explain that they designate a newly-born Society, whereof the prospectus has just reached me. It is a society to which I shall certainly belong', should I be found worthy; for it has the extra ordinary merit of demanding no sub scription. You can become an M.S.P.E. - Member of the Society for Pure English-without banging a single saxpence. AVliether you have to submit to ilny test-to pronounce any shibboleth-I do not know. "Were I the autocrat of such a society, I should admit nobody who could not say "the idea of good" without in serting an "r" between "idea" and "of." This would mean that the so ciety would consist exclusively of Scotchmen, and a very cosy little com pany we should be. On the other hand, if the test were to distinguish accurately between the vowel sounds in "good" and "food," and other words spelt with a doub...

BEWARE THE AVALANCHE SOME PERILS OF WINTER SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
BEWARE THE AVALANCHE SOME PERILS OF WINTER SPORTS. So many people go to the Alps every winter, and the proportion of serious accidents is apparently so small, that tile novice undertakes his winter holi day in far too light-hearted a fashion. Let him (says a special correspondent in "The Daily Express"), however, try to insure himself against winter sports accidents, and he will find that com pany after company will either refuse or (mote prohibitive rates. This brings matter for serious reflec tion. The apparently small percentage of accidents is explained in this way. Ninety out of every hundred visitors to Switzerland in winter scarcely get out of sight of the hotel. They spend much time on practice slopes, much time in dancing and picnicking. So that all the accidents that happen must be put down to the debit of the ten per cent, who do more serious work. The dajiger point is reached when the novice becomes a little more am bitious. lie looks upon the Alps as a playground,forget...
SPOOF SPIRIT PHOTOGRAPHS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
SPOOF SPIRIT PHOTOGRAPHS Should the society of the Magic Circle become the oilicial ghost-layers for Great Britain? This suggestion (says "Tho Dailv Express") is put forward by Sir J. N. Maskelyne, the famous magician, in a letter to "The Express, which appears below. Tho JIagic Circle contains all _ the most expert conjurers and magicians of tho day among its members, and it is pointed out that tho expert know ledge of such a body places it in an unrivalled position to probe the genuineness of such spirit photographs as were submitted to them by dabblers in occult matters with a genuine desire for enlightenment. Mr Maskelyne demonstrates tho vir tual impossibility of deceiving modern conjurers in such matters by a detailed examination of the much-criticised photograph of Major-General Sir Alfred Turner, in which a mystic form, saul to be that of his mother, appears. This picture was recently reproduced in "The Express." (To the Editor of "The Express. ) . Sir,-The subject of "spiri...
SOCIALISM OPPOSED [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
SOCIALISM OPPOSED ; Mr Vincent Astor, "America's rich est young man," publishes a dignified reply to the open letter in which Mr Upton Sinclair urged him to devote his many millions to the advancing of the cause of Socialism (says "The Times.") The argument used by the author of "The Junge" was that there arc 10,000,000 of destitute people in the country to-day, and that Socialism pro vides the only means of relieving their sufferings. To this Mr Vincent Astor retorts that he is "fortunately" asso ciated with many organisations inter ested in sociological questions," and that in his studies he has had the benefit of the experience and advice of the lead ing officers of the American Federation of Labor and the chiefs of the Railway Brotherhoods. He asserts that not one man entitled to speak for the working classes whom he has met "regards Socialism as a cure for the evils which we all recognise and deplore." Mr Vincent Astor begs air Sinclair to accept from him copies of the "America...
THE ROSE-LEAF ROMANCE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
THE ROSE-LEAF ROMANCE j (By R. T. Chandler in "The West minster Gazette.") It was one of those rare accom plished first novels which seem to find their publisher and their public as easily as love finds its young dream. It appeared under the auspices of a fine old firm, anonymously, though the fashion is out of date, and "the world seized upon it at once. "A true rose '? leaf romance, 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. "You 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. It created something less than a furore, perhaps, but far more than a succes d'estime. It was a book that politi cians were compelled to glance at while dressing for dinner. Reviewers, to be in the mode, had to allude to it; it was a sound topic for breaking the ice at dinner parties; one gushed over ...
SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
Slli ARTHUll SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL The death of Mr Francois Cellier, the Savoy conductor (says "The Westmin ster Gazette") recalls a dramatic epi sode associated with the production of "Iolanthe'" in 18S2. That opera was the first of the Gilbert and Sullivan series produced at the Savoy, and Sir Arthur Sullivan had arranged wilji Mr Cellier personally to conduct the first perform ance. On the morning- of the clay fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich man, so successful had been the four operas which had preceded "Iolanthe"; but just as lie was about to leave home for the Savoy news reached liim 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 "Iolanthe" be fore a crowded audience, which little knew that the famous composer was then as poor as the lowliest scene shifter behind the scenes. Bobby: Jin, you said lbnt I should...
STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Rear-Admiral A. T. Mahan "Tho Daily Mail.") Tho naval position of Great Britain is a composite o£ two distinct factors. These aro tho general international situation, in so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter ests or her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent the defensive and offensive elements of a military situation. . At the present moment the more security of the British Islands is con ceived to be so far imperilled that it has prompted a radical change in the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around tho islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related to it, has been the withdrawal-the drawing back-of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its definite headquarters. Students of military history will...
CHAPTER XIX. "I FORBID THIS MARRIAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
CHAPTER XIX. "I FORBID THTS JrARRTAGE." Lady" i\fpntamor was daily rejuven ating as she took an active part in tlic young lives of her son and the ipnocent, chnrmiiifr Rivl who was so soon to bo his wife. There was a sympathetic affection between the excitable, energetic old lady, who never admitted that there could be obstacles to anything she willed or wished, and the tranquil, saddened Xetta. "Netta is so naturally high-class, so tactful ; she always instinctively knoivs what she ought to do, and does it," the old lady told her son. "You should have seen her at Ame lia's. Not a bit put out by the quantities of lovely things-not staring, gogglp-eyed, as I have seen duchess's daughters stare when they were taken to bo fitted for their com ing-out things, but just having the right taste-liking what I liked be fore she could possibly have guessed it-oh, and all that sort of thing. My dear, she is a gem ! You are a lucky man." I "I suppose I am," he grimly re plied. "I don't think, th...
The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XVIII. THE GAUNTLET IS CAST. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
The Great Montamor Case. .By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knavo of Hearts, CHAPTER XVIII. TilE GAUNTLET IS CAST. It was a sultry summer day ; the sun. poured down ou the pavements with merciless power. The grass in t!ic parks was visibly browning. .The busy thoroughfares were crowded in the shade-empty but for a few pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzled. Gwendolen Halldare sat at her writing-table in her shady drawing room, shady because of wetted tat ties and outside blinds. Lilies and white sweet peas, . with terns, were in the bowls and vases. A little fountain fed with rose-water played in the shaded balcony-a new idea of hers. Its trickling suggested cool ness, just as in tiie dining-room be low the big lumps of ice among ferns not only suggested cold, but tem pered the heat. That day everything connected with Lord Montamor seemed to her clear as the purest crystal. She was miserable. An active light was at work within her between the part of her nature wh...
PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES Signor Giacomo Puccini, the famous Italian composer, who has been pay ing a lightning visit to London, went last night to a rehearsal ol' "The Dar ling of the Gods." v.hich Sir Herbert Treo is reviving at His Majesty's Thea tre, for the composer is in scarch 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. But, at the same time, whenever I 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 that I have made up my mind to see 'Tho Darling of the Gods," in the hope that it might prove to lie a suitable subject for an opera. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening, for I leave Kngland for Italy at an early date. "I have seen 'Mr "W'u,' and I liked it very much, both for its originality and the splendid manner in which it is staged. "I may tell you." he...
MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES (By Stephen Blacl?, in "The Daily Mail.") The present trouble on the Rand, 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 definition emerged six months ago. South Africa, the graveyard of slates men's reputations, has problems which no other country on earth possesses; and the wisest men have failed time and again to cope with them. Certainly the Iiotlia 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 that re belled against the Krugor Government and the children of these men are on the Rand to-day; and the fatality of their affairs is that they are governed as Ivruger governed tliem-from a town only thirty...
COURT OF ARCHES LOST RECORDS DISCOVERED [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
COURT OF ARCHES LOST RECORDS DISCOVERED At a dinner of the Authors' Club on Monday (says "The Times" of Janu ary 10) Sir 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 1805 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 1903 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 last year, when he was' helped by the Rev. Claude Jenkins, librarian of Lambeth, that lie was able to go through them. They cover a period of 200 years, from 1GC0 to 1S5G, and provide a set of precedents, about 2000 in number, de cided in the pri...
DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TU[?]ERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 26 March 1914
DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUHERCULOSIS Tremendous strides have been made of late years in the treatment ot tuber culosis (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January IS), and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the sur geons at Guy's Hospital, who, greatly daring, arc declared to have made a remarkable advance in the treatment of certain forms of disease. Kecent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chronic ill-lu-alth, such as nervous debility, rheumatism, and other disorders, are duo to poisoning set up by unhealthy conditions of the large intestine, and it lias even been suggested that the lowering of vitality resulting from such poisoning is favorable to tlie develop ment of cancer and tuberculosis. It was felt that if the large intestine could be safely removed the result would be a tendency to healthy longe vity in the individual; but surgeons were deterred from the obvious opera tion by a knowledge of oilier functions performed by this part of ...
