CHAPTER XIX. "I FORBID THIS MARRIAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914
CHAPTER XIX. "I FORBID THIS MARRIAGE." Lady Montamor was daily rejuven ating as she took an active part in the vonnc lives of her-son and the innocent, charmine girl who was so soon »to he his wife. There was a sympathetic affection between the excitable, energetic old letly, who n^ver admitted that there could be obstacles to anything she willed or wished, and the tranquil, saddened Netta. "Netta is so naturally high-class, so tactful ; she always instinctively knows what she ought to do, and does it," the old lady told hor son. "You should have seen her at Ame lie's. Not a bit put out bj' the quantities of lovely things—not staring, goggle-eyed, as I have seen duchess's daughters staro when they were taken to be litted for their com ing-out things, but just having the right taste-Miking what 1 liked bo 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." ■ "1 suppose I am." he grimly re plied. "I don't think, though,...

DOOMED ISLAND SAKURASHIMA AND ITS VOLCANO [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914
DOOMED ISLAND SAKURASHIMA AND ITS VOLCANO Sakurashima, the small Island in the South of Japan which has been devas tated by a volcanic . outburst, is situated . in the Gull of Kago sliima; opposite the city of the same name, says the editor of "The Japan Chronicle" In an interesting article in "The Manchester Guardian." The island is 24 miles in circumference, and the crater of tlje volcano at the summit is 3500ft. above sea-level. Ac cording: to Japanese tradition, the island was produced by an upheaval of the earth's crust in the year 796. However that may be, the-volcano was within historic times very active, though for more than a hundred years now It li^s been quiescent.. There is no recorded case, moreover, of a vol canic outburst of Sakurashima equal to the present in the extent and com pleteness of the disaster. The volcano most feared in this I region is that of Kirishima; higher up the bay, wliich"can still be seen smok ing on most days of the year, and is occasionally res...
SARAH BERNHARDT HONORED RECEIVES CROSS OF LEGION [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914
SARAH BERNHARDT HONORED RECEIVES CROSS OF LEGION I was one of many who went to con gratulate Madame Sarah Bernhardt, who has at last received the Cross of. the Legion of Honor (says the Paris correspondent of "The Dally Tele graph"). I brought her the con gratulations of "The Daily Telegraph," and of the immense circle of her Brit ish admirers, and she said that among the innumerable messages she had re ceived she appreciated none more. "So sympathetic you English are, and al ways have been—always so kind to me. I am very'much touched. Please, con vey my deepest thanks. All these kind attentions to-day overwhelm me. I am much moved." And the great actress really did seem more moved than I have seen her on the .stage. It was a family lunchfcon party that I interrupted, in the house on the Boulevard Pereire, where Madame Sarah—-as all her friends call her— has lived for many years. The house is full of mementoes of her long and Illustrious career all over the world, and contains also ...
THE SOCIALISTS RED FLA[?]. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914
THE SOCIALISTS' RED FLAo. The red flat: of Socialism and An archy was originally a symbol of law ami order in Franco, on October 24, 1789, it was enacted that in cases of riot, rebellion or disorder, this flag should be carried before the National Guard, to warn the disturbers of the peacc cf tbe approach of official inter ference. For this purpose it was used only once, and then on the field of Mars in Paris, on July 17, 1791, on the occasion of the riot caused by the Jacobin petition for the deposition of the King. "Down with the rod flair!" wrs the cry with which the fathers ot modern Anarchism greeted the banner. That day the red (lag was baptised in blond, lid - ever since was-regarded as the bloody, symbol of tyranny. - The historical place of the red flag was strikingly illustrated in .Tunc, IS32, at the funeral of General La marque. The appearance of a man on horseback with a red sash a'nd a red Bag surmounted with a Jacobin-cap, was then the signal for the riots, dur ing wh...

„cW WONDEr^rUL SWITZERLAND. For six hundred years- Switzerland Das battled against great odds.

Just as 1 eafered the door of the theatre a friena of mine hurried up to me in a great state of excitement, and urged mo to leave the place, as it was rumored that if I threw Antonio the townspeople would never tet me leave the town with a whole fikin. However, I was deter mined to meet the man, no matter what happened.

YOUR CHILD'S THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 19 March 1914
YOUR CHILD'S THOUGHTS. Mothers, teach your children ti think for themselves, and when the: come to you with their theories and their beliefs, agree with the good thai is in them. If there is anything thai seems to 'J"ou wrong explain it away if you can reasonably; if not, let i alone till yon can do so. Children can no more think exactly as their parents do, and still presem their individuality, than they can re semble them physically in every de tail, and forcing is as impossible in the one case as in the other. No matter how lovingly united 01 how aweet their accord, husband and wife rarely have the same tempera rnents, tendencies, or tastes. Their needs are different; their man tier of looking at things is not identi cal, and in varying ways their individti ilities assert themselves. Compromise makes matrimony no! only~linioii, but unison and unity. The spirit of compromise does no" mean continuous self-surrender; ii does not mean ceasing to be a voi&lt;-c and becoming an...
