NATURE RESERVES [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

NATURE RESERVES If we-could go back a hundrod years we should find many birds and plants which aro now extinct, or iearly so, comparatively common in this country (writes In "Tho Westminster Gazette"). No one seems to havo thought of the creation of nature reserves for their protection or for any application of tho law to closo'seasons, excopt for game. And so birds Hko tho hoopeo and tho ori ole, the harrier and tho crested grebo and the buzzard, are now unkno.wn in many parts of tho country- whero they were once common. This brings, ms to the point of this article, which to call attention to the now society for the promotion of nature reserves which has Just been formed wlth'th# Itight Hon. J. W. Lowther as Its pre sident, ahd many distinguished scien tists and ornithologists and botanists on Its council. Tho aim of tho society Is to add to tho number of nature reserves which have already been formed by the Na tional Trust. These are too few and far between to preserve the llora a...

SECOND THOUGHTS THE REFORMED CHARACTER (By W. Pctt Illclge, in "The Westmin ster Gazette.") A distinct amount of swaggering characterised his gait as ho came down tho road, and the manner In which he removed a pebble that stood In the way Indicated proud determina tion. Ho patted, more than once, the i front of his blue serge jacket to make sure that contents of an Inside pocket wero safe. ! "My responsibility," he said, half aloud, "will soon bo at an end." v The small numbers on tho doors were of brass, arid use of chamois leather made them glisten in the sun shine. liaising* tho knocker of a cot cage to give one definite knock, he observed that he had mistaken a 3 for an 8. He went back for the space of fivo houses. "That's my name," said tho old lady, with reserve, "but I can't ask you in side because, to tell you tho fact, I'm turning out one of the rooms.

TITLED PAUPERS [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

TITLED PAUPERS Some persons imagine that because a j man possesses a title lie must neces- ; sariiy bo rich (says "The Glasgow Weekly Herald." Never was a greater mistake made. More than one noble man has inherited a name of great dis tinction, but ho also inherited a large number of debts. With property mort gaged and no ready money to meet pressing claims, his position is dis tinctly unenviable. Of course, amongi our pecra there are a large number ot very wealthy men, but, on tho other ha"ndA many of tho great people whoso nomcs you see in tho Society columns of newspapers from time to time are nothing more than "titled paupers"— many of them relatively poorer than the humblest wage-earner. Theirs is a Constant light with poverty, which in their case is a social crime. Almost every day they are confronted with one problem—how to make ends meet in such a way that it will not be ncces ,sury for them to forego any of the lux uries or pleasures to which they im agine they are entitled...

eo:nmonwealih Defence. Cost akd Efficiency. (Contributed.) Senator Millen, ns Minister of De fence, has spoken a word of warning. When the people of the Commonwealth turned their attention seriously to tht matter of defence, they called Li-rd Kitchener to their aid and adopted hi? sch.-me thouprh it involved a very large outlay. Lord Kitchener's estimate has been fxce<'d»fl. and it is more thai, doubtful whether the ends at which hi? scheme aimed have been attained. Clearly Australia cannot defend tin Northern Territory till there is a Trans continental line running from the popu lated South to the practically unpeopled North; the Commissioners appointed to inquire into the construction of the proposed railway put the cost of a broad gauga line at ,£7,000,000, of a 3 ft G in. line at £5,000,000.

LACE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

LACE-MAKING. Lace, as we now understand the term, was not made until the end of the sixteenth century; ibu: nettings, drawn-thread work and elaborate em- «> broideries have been found which date back as far as early Egyptian, Graeco-Roman and Anlo-Saxon times. The most exquisite examples of what we may call modern lace date froui the time of the Renaissance, that wonderful period when all men's pow ers seemed suddenly to gain new life and vigor, and it is really no exag geration to say that the lace then pro duced was the finest the world has seen. - _ Tradition has it that Quoen Kach erlne of Aragon was the first to in troduce the art of lace making as then known into the Midlands, whilst liv ing in retirement at Ampthlll.

An expert on carving gives the fol lowing very useful detailed instruc-' tionir: — A loin o£ veal should 'be started at the small end and the ribs cut apart and served 'with a piece of the kid ney and fat on each plate.

A TRUNK AND A TROUGH. "An elephant of mine," said an an imal trainer, "lias been taught to pump the trough in his winter quar ters full of water every morning. Old Mowgli showed his sense the other day. Jt was like this: One o£ the logs supporting the trough had got dis placed. The trough slanted, and as fast as iMowgli pumped the water In, it ran out to the floor. I watched him to see what he'd do. He pumped away for a long time before he noticed anything wrong. Then he left the pump and came and nosed the trough over, grunting discontentedly. The thing was still empty; so he turned to the pump again. Twice he stopped pumping; twice he studied the trough. Then, of a sudden, he gave a sharp, quick trumpet. He saw what the trouble was, and with a thrust of his trunk he dislodged the other log, and the trough rested, flat and leyel again, on the ground. Now, without any difficulty, it could be filled; and Mow gli, yith a grunt that said, There! I've settled that difficulty,' returned ...
