SPORT AND SPORTSMEN HORSE'S DEATH Jockey To Pay Damages JUDGE ON SHORT STIRRUPS LONDON, July 27. [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923

I-_ HORSE'S DEATH Jockey To Pay Damages JUDGE ON SHORT STIRRUPS (REUTER'S.) ,~ I.ONDON, Jly Z7. Three hundred guineas damages were aW?arded Mr. Baum, against I3eary, a jockey, in connection with _the death of a racehorse named Iron Ore. Judge Darling called Loord Durham as one of the foremost experts, ana asked why pockeys rode with short stirrups. Lord Durham replied that it gave them a ten-pound advantage. The old style rider had no chance against the modern rider on the flat. Judge Darling-Does the new style give the same control over a horse. Loord Durham-It makes little dif ference to the horses accustomed to the, modern method in training. "Some times," he said, "a horse ran across a course, and it was usually the horse's fault." In giving evidence Beary described the race in which Iron Ore met her death. He said when Iron Ore dropped back he ,was forced on to the rails, and did not see her again.

FAMOUS PICTURES Village Exhibitions [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923

FAMOUS PICTURES Village Exhibitions Following the exhibition of reproduc tions of "old masters" in remote country villages, the Village Clubs Association is irranging for further travelling exhibi tions of original water colors and etchings (says "The Daily Mail"). ":'The exhibitions of the copies of the old masters," said Mr. Nugent Harris, the organising secretary of the associa tion, "have aroused so much interest that we feel justified in extending the work. "The- object of the touring exhibitions is not only to provide a pleasurable dis traction to the villagers but also to deve lon the latent artistic talent in the coun tryside. "This arti-tic sense, I am certain, abounds to a far greater extent in the country than in the towns, and is ap parent not only on drawing and construc tion but in dramatic talent, in music and singing and arts and crafts. "The main idea of the touring exhi bition is to stimulate this talent and thus give an outlet for any natural genius."

JAPANESE REFORM START ON LANGUAGE. COMPLEX PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — News — 28 July 1923

JAPANESE REFORM START ON LANGUAGE. COMPLEX PROBLEM. -ROGRESS is being made with the plan for reducing the number of Chinese characters to be used in Japanese writing, and the committee considering the matter has presented its first report. It appears that a great many of the characters are to be used simply for their phonetic value, and it would seem as though the new com plications would be as trouiles'me as the old. In criticising the plan, "The Mainichi" says that it will result not only in the children aught under the new sys ten being tunable to read the books already printed, but also in their eldcrs being unable to understand what they write. It cannot be a mere simplification if it results in the elders being unable to understand the reformed writing. "The iaiMnichi" further says that whereas it is not essential to have the kana pro nunciation beside the characters at pre sent, it will be necessary under the new system. Then why not abolish the Chi nese characters altogether...

JOURNRALIST'S REMIIS[EN[ES Of Parliament and Politicians (By J. J. C.) I.-THE OLD FRIENDLY DAYS "These sootnling hopes I draw from the dearest and tenderest recollections of my life, for the remembrance of my life, from the remembrance of those Attic nights and those reflections of the gods, which we have spent with those admired and respected and be loved companions who have gone be fore us, and over whose.ashes the most precious tears have been shed."
