HISTORIC TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

HISTORIC TOWN Of the three big parish churches which will shortly become the cathe drals of the three new dioceses, the most interesting- is St. James's, Bury St. Edmunds. The town lias asso ciations which make it worthy ot' being the cathedral city of a diocese. Parliament was held in the town in 1272, 1290, and 144G, and sovereigns were entertained there In former ages In lavish manner. The Abbey, which Canute founded in 1020, became one of the richest 'ind most important in mediaeval times, with an enormous income. The "new" cathedral church dates from the fif teenth century, but the tower, which serves as a sort of campanile, is a relic of Norman England, and is said to be the original work of Abbot An selm, who was a nephew of the famous archbishop. The new see will be known as St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich, a not unpicturesque de signation, recalling the combineof St. Andrews and Edinburgh.

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 March 1914

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Rear-Admiral A. T. Mahan, in "Tho Dally Mall.") The naval position of Great Britain is a composite of two distinct factors. These are the general International situation, in so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter ests or her dangers, and the amount °u navaI 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 mere 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 the 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 Fle6t from Malta to Gibraltar as Its definite headquarters. Students ot military history wi...

When it was discovered, he added, its sales would be phenomenal. It was useless to offer the average tradesman who ran a horse and van a motor ve hicio at £350, to carry an equal load he could not. in most cases, afford the money. For other reasons, it was not satisfactory to offer him a chassis, which was really designed for private work. On the dev...

WHAT "TONNAGE" MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

WHAT "TONNAGE" MEANS. The launching of the Queen Eliza beth, Britain's latest huge battleship, was accompanied by the publication of the usual details concerning her, in the course of which such terms as "displacement," "gross tonnage," "dead-weight capacity," and "net re gistered tonnage" were used. To all but shipping men, these terms are confusing, if not misleading. The word "ton," for instance, is not used as it is ordinarily applied, but is a measure of capacity, and not of weight. Each ton in such cases re presents 100 cubic feet. "Displacement" means the avoirdu pois weight of water displaced by a steamer -when she leaves a port laden to the Plimsoll mark. In this parti cular case, "ton" means weight-that is, 22401b. Thirty-five cubic feet of water weighs a ton, and after the number of cubic feet occup'ed by the vessel below the water-line is ascer tained, all you have to do is to di vide the total hy 3f>, and you get the displaced water in avoirdupois weight. The "gross ...

Me stands tor the establishment of a mili tary reserve force of men in all walks of life. I-lis purpose is not to Invite war, but to prevent it, he says. Another feature of his report is his stated belief that the present method of promotion in the army does not pro duce maximum ellicieney. He would like to see some limited plan of selec tion in effect, although lie makes no specific recommendations on this sub ject. Throuifhout his report the secretary makes reference to the good work ac complished by the army. Me calls the .standard high, and says he is proud of the service.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To purify a cistern tie charcoal in a bag and drop it in. Celery may be freshened by being left overnight in a solution of salt and water. When making blue-water for clothcs add a little salt to it. This distri butes the color evenly and prevents "patches." Cook cauliflowers in milk and water -it gives them a better flavor, and they look whiter than when cooked in water. Sometimes boot polish becomes quite dry with keeping. Moisten it with a little turpentine. It softens the polish, making it usable at once, and also gives a good gloss to the leather. If at any time you should have a gathered linger or poisoned-- hand, take a cabbage leaf, roll it out with a bottle until the juice comes, and tie it on the affected part. This will draw and cleanse it far better than a poultice. When using oil stoves, to prevent them from smoking, dissolve one tablespoonful of common salt in every pint of paraffin oil that you use. This also gives a much clearer light, and it prevent...

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS Damages of £500 for breach of pro mise are claimed by Mies Emma Ma haney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. Joha Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a Civil War veteran, in a suit she has brought at Paterson, Now Jersey. Miss M&haney says that tho last sh© saw of her fiance was in 1863 as he was leaving for the Civil War. She never married, believing that some day the sweetheart of her youthful days would return to claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting with iiLpa, she was overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf, who informed her that he I had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the spinster alleges the vet eran wooed her with all the ardor which characterised him before the war, and ilnally ho proposed mar riage. She made all the preparations for the ceremony at great expense. When everything was ready Mr. Wolf wrote saying that the marriage could never take place. Miss Mahaney bases hor...

CURIOUS ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

CURIOUS ERRORS. Curious errors have sometimes been made during the proccss oC transcription, and no one acquainted with mediaeval manuscripts can be very much surprised. But, as a cor respondent of "The Yorkshire Post" points out, it is somewhat strange that, when once a mistake lias been made and found its way into a print ed volume, it is well-nigh impossible to eradicate the error. For instance, mediaeval York was credited with the possession of a parish church de dicated to St. Bridget, and in all ec clesiastical histories of the Minister city St. Bridget's invariably appears in the long list of parochial churches. But it is beyond doubt that no such '.hurch ever existed. It simply came into the lists through a copyist"?; blunder. A capital G was misread as B, and a bad quill or careless writer turned an "a" into an "i," with the result that St. Brig, appeared in stead of St. Greg., and so St. Bridget came into being. But though the mis Lake lias been repeatedly pointed out, and...
