CITIZEN SOLDIERS AMERICAN PROPOSAL, [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

CITIZEN SOLDIERS AMERICAN PROPOSAL, Lindley M. Garrison, Secretary ot War, in his annual report made public to-day (says the "Christian Science Monitor," December 11) declares him self to be in favor of national mili tary policy whereby every man in the United States would have enough mili tary training to make him a. reason ably good soldier in time of need. He stands for the establishment of a null tarv reserve force of men in all walks of 'life. His 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 efficiency. He would like to see some limited plan of selec tion in effect, although he makes no specific recommendations on this sub ject. Throughout his report the secretary makes reference to the good work ac complished by the army. Ho calls the standard high, and says he is proud of the service. His report is in part as follows: - The more intimate r...

EARLY LONDON MOTORS STEAM-DRIVEN 'BUSES [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

EARLY LONDON MOTORS f - STI5AM-DRIVEX 'BUSES The motor (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 15) has invaded many fields in triumph, but there is one extensive territory which so far it- has failed to occupy. The horse still trots merrily between the* shafts of. the tradesman's light van. Mr D. T. Smith, who, in. a paper be fore the Association of Engineers-in Charge, at the St. Bride Institute, Fleet street, on "Commercial Motor Vehicles," last night, considered the position with regard to those, stated there was at present no vehicle of which he' was aware that was a satisfactory substi tute for the tradesman's light van. When it was discovered, he added, its sales would he phenomenal. It was useless to offer the average tradesman who ran a horse and van a motor ve hicle 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 development of...

No Black Cap. HAWKINS IN A MELTING MOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

No Black Cap. HAWKINS JN A MELTING MOOD. Although his severity at times led to his iK'ing. termed the "hanging judge." there were occasions when the 1,-ile Huron Brampton (Air. Jus tice Hawkins) displayed considerable feeling while on the Uench. On one occasion a poor woman was tried before him in a circuit town for murdering her_babe. -The woman, oppressed with a sense of shame, determined to drown her week-old' child, and herself at the siuiie time. The water, however was not deep enough to .drown her : she was. no. cordingly put. upon her trial for. murder, and was eventually convict-. «'(!. Hawkins was about to pro nounce the inevitable sentence of death-much against his will-when the pompous old* 11 iff h Sheriff, all importance" and dignity, said : "My lord, are you not going to yut on the black cap 7" "So," replied (he judge. " I'm not. I do not intend the poor creature In he hanged, and I am not going to frighten ..her to death." Addressing her by.name, he said : "l>on't ...

INDIA AND CEYLON ADAM'S BRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

INDIA AND CEYLON ADAM'S BRIDGE (By a Correspondent in "The Daily Telegraph.") Of all tlio bridges o£ tlie world Adam's Bridge, between India and Cey lon, which is not a bridge at all-and never has been-is the most famous; and now the strait is really going to be spanned-not yet, but some day soon. And meanwhile the ends of the steel rails will dip down within sight of each other, and ferry boats will plough backwards and forwards, and the misery and sea-sickness of the long sea journey between Colombo and Tuti corin will be a thing of the past. On February 21 the two ends will be for mally opened by the Governors o£ Madras and Ceylon. Except in the very centre of the strait, where the larger coasting ships can-but very rarely do-go, there are no great engineering difficulties. The piers move on from stepping-stone to stepping-stone, small seaweed-grown throws of dark rocks for the most part, clear-but only just clear-of the high est tide. But it would make little dif ference to mode...

Two men, Henry Woodbridge, 40, general dealer, of Chertsey, and Daniel O'Connell, 24, laborer, of Kingston, were charged with being in the unlawful possession of the articles. It was stated that on the way to the police station O'Connell said: "It is only me and Jingles (Woodbridge), and if you let him go I will stand the racket of it. I will tell you where the stuff came from if you let him go. You will never find out yourself, as the owners are away, and won't be back for a long time." At the station he pulled out of his pocket some silver serviette rings, a toast rack, and some forks and spoons, and threw them on the table. "I want to keep poor old Jingles out of it," he said.

WATERPLANE ACCIDENT BARONESS VAUGHAN AND CHILD [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

WATERPLANE ACCIDENT BARONESS VAUGHAX AND CHILD The Baroness Vaughan, widow of the late King Leopold, had an exciting ex perience while making a flight with Maicon, the French aviator, at Beau lieu-sur-JIer. Maicon had made several flights over the sea, says "The New York Herald" (Paris edition), with various passen gers. He was making his last flight of the afternoon with the Baroness Vaughan and one of her children, when, as the hydro-aeroplane was leaving the water, one of the floats struck the summit of a wave. The shock broke one of the stays of the float, which flew up and hit the rapidly-revolving pro peller, the blades of which were smashed. Tho accident caused the aeroplane to lose its stability, and it dropped back into the sea, heeling over on one wing. An auto-boat from La Reserve at once went out and rescued tho passengers, after which It towed the damaged aero plane back to its shed. The Baroness and her child were by no means upset by the mishap. "A couple," said Mrs S...
