A.L.H. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
A.L.H. Our lads in Khaki put iu a long day on Tuesday at the Campaspe weir preparing for the camp at Trawalla, next month. Both men and horses acquitted themselves well with comrades from the El more troop, whom the Rochesterite contingent outnumbered in the ranks. Warrant Officer O'Connell put the units through their facings after a mock fight had taken the sharp edges off the participants' ardour. The units of ilie Roches ter troops, under I,ieuteuaut George Rankin, defeated the doughty lads from Elmore, under Lieuteuaut Cochrane, who was handicapped iu the matter of uumbers. Some good work was shown, and the zeal of both troops was undoubted. Troop aud squadron drill was gone through and altogether a splendid time was spent by officers, men and horses. There was a fine muster at the roll-call, and the weather conditions were all that could be desired. The aim of the locals it Is suspected, was to capture the lunches of the enemy rather than the euemy themselves. The best ■ of com...

DR. MONTESSORI IN AMERICA [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
1>K. MONTHSSORI IN AMERICA Dr. Maria Montessori, who lias given her name to the new system for educating children, is at present in America (says "The Westminster Gazette" of January 2). She is no doubt pleased to find that there are nearly one hundred schools that have adopted tlie Montessori method in the United States, and that many pupil teachers have learnt her system. She lays particular stress on the physical improvement that comes from her me thod. Speaking- of the Casa dei Bam bini at Rome, she says:—"The most marvellous discovery was the physical improvement of these little children. Now. we never served food in the school. The little ones, all of whom live in their own homes, have half an hour's recess for luncheon, which they take at home. Not a single child in the school was given medicine; there was no change of diet, but in almost every case a new vigor ana health was shown by blood supply, weight, and stature. They looked like the children of wealthy parents livin...

NORTHERN SCULPTOR DEVELOPMENT OF GENIUS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
NORTHERN SCULPTOR DEVELOPMENT OF GENIUS The works of one of the greatest Scandinavian sculptors is still almost u 11 recognised in this country, says John Rivers in the "World's Work." Stephan Sinding is not a young man. Kis life's work is behind him. He is famous in Scandinavia, in Gennnay, and' in France, and waits only to be appreciated by the English-speaking world. Born in 1846, he has already celebrated his sixty-seventh birthday. His native place is Drontheim, on the north coast of Norway. It was at the ajge of twenty-six— when most young- artists have already mastered the technique of their art and are already well on the road to suc cess or failure—that his eyes were first opened to the great gift nature had bestowed upon him. For a short time he worked in his father's house, but, finding little or no facilities for studying in his native country, he went in 1871 to Berlin, where he was received as a pupil into the studio of Professor Albert Wolff— the only master he ever h...
GARDENER WANTED QUALIFICATION CONSIDERED [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
GARDENER WANTED ailATvrFTCATION CONSIDERED , A few days ago I saw a very attrac tive advertisement in "The Church Times," and I reproduce it so that my readers may join in the wild rush that is sure to follow so tempting, an offer (writes S.L.H., in "The Daily News") WANTED, GARDENER, gentleman by birth ami education. No salary. Board and lodging iu return. Jlust do own room. Steady. Age under 30. Excellent references. In order to prevent disappoint I. think the advertiser should explain clearly all that is meant by the phrase "gentle man by birth and education," as some applicants for this remarkably good thing might be able to pass the test in regard to gentle birth and then fail owing to insufficient education. On the other hand, a man might have know ledge and skill in all learning and vis-i dom, and yet be merely the deplorable product of the lower middle-classes. Let us, therefore, try to discover the meaning- of the phrase "a gentleman by birth.'.' Selden, in his "Titles of H...
ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. Anxiety for the safety of Captain Bartlett and his party, who are adrift in the Polar pack ice, separated from Mr Stefansson, who is 011 the mainland, is greatly stimulated because it is known by his intimates that Bartlett's ship, the Kaiiuk, was worn out and condemned as a whaler before the ex pedition started (says the Mew York correspondent of "The Daily Tele graph," December 11). This statement will be questioned probably, but I have seen a letter to-day penned by Cap tain Bartlett himself, and never hither to published, severely indicting the old craft, and gravely questioning- her fit ness for the work in hand. Writing from Nome, Alaska, to "The Daily Telegraph's" informant at New York, Captain Bartlett, who is a British subject, and was captain for Peary on his successful trip to the North Pole, says: "I only wish we had the Roosevelt (Peary's o!d ship). Then we could do something. This boat, the Karluk, is a poor 'tooth.' ' She has 110 stre...
CIGARETTE SMOKING A MENTAL DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
CIGARETTE SMOKING A MENTAL DRUG. A few days ago I was having an argument, in which the question of the cigarette habit arose. For a while the pleasures and harm of such smoking were discussed, and then one said. "Well, my cigarettes are a great com fort to me. I cannot do anything with out them." And another, an eminent medical man, answered, "Yes, they are a mild drug. Probably they will do you but little harm; but they translate action into thoughts of action, and thoughts of action into dreaming!" His words remained in my head and refused to be ousted. And now, as I sit down to write this, they have re turned to me with greater force and clearer import than ever. So many of us are mental cigarette fjends! Do you understand what I mean? Not that we actually smoke cigarettes, but that so many practise some method or another of "translat ing action into thoughts of action, and thoughts of action into dreams," and of finding a comfort—a drugged, un healthy comfort—in so doing. PRACTI...

PRISON PANTOMIME [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
PRISON PANTOMIME Strolling across the yard at Chelms ford Gaol (says the London "Evening News") a man decently dressed in an overcoat and bowler hat requested the warder to open the gates for him, "as he had finished repairing' the "organ." The warder remarked carefully, "What's your name?" turning: to the visitors' book. "Griffin," said the man who had finished repairing: the organ. But "Grif fin" was a name which did not seem to have been entered, and the warder thousht he would keep the gates closed for the moment. In the meantime to telephoned to the office, and the quick arrival of officials showed that his caution was Justified. "Griffin" was at once recognised as one of the prisoners. It was found that he had slipped away unobserved during exercise, and passing through the kitchen garden, entered the probation warders' quar ters. There he had changed his clothes —and also secured a gold watch chain.
DOMINIONS FLEET NEW ZEALAND'S SHARE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
DOMINIONS FLEET NEW ZEALAND'S SHARE (Bv F. A. M'Kenzie injtlie "Daily .Mail.") The New Zealand, the Dreadnought presented by the southern Dominion to the navy, has just returned home I after a triumphant journey round the Empire. Everywhere, from Santiago ' to Sydney and from Vancouver to Cape Town, she lias been enthusiastic ally welcomed, and everywhere re garded as a pledge of Imperial unity. Even while she was completing the last miles of her 45,000-mile voyage the land that paid for her adopted a naval policy which makes the gift of I Dreadnoughts a thing of the past. New Zealand this month determined to come into line with Australia, and, in place of supporting the British Navy by gifts of money or ships, to have a navy of her own. AVhat does this new departure por tend ? Is it a sign of weakening love of Empire? Is it an attempt to escape responsibilities? These are questions which many interested In the future of our race are asking. There is one man in London at pre sent es...
CRIME IN SCOTLAND INCREASE REPORTED EXCESSIVE FINES DISCUSSED [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
CRIME IN SCOTLAND INCREASE REPORTED EXCESSIVE FINES DISCUSSED . A report on the judicial statistics of Scotland for 1912 was issued yesterday (says "The Scotsman" for December 3). The Prison Commissioners, in a covering letter to the Secretary for Scotland, say:— We regret to have to report a gen eral increase in crime, which is most marked in assaults, theft, theft by ! housebreaking', indecency, and in minor crimes and offences, principally breach of peace and drunkenness. We again think it right to direct special attention to the large number of per sons committed to prison in Scotland in default of payment of fines—viz., 36,631, out of a total of 89,013 sen tenced to pay fines. From these fig ures it appears that in Scotland 41 per rent, of those sentenced to pay fines are admitted into prison in default of payment, but of these 11 per cent, pay part lines after admission, leaving ,10 per cent, who undergo entire sentence of imprisonment in default. From the report on the judici...
V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914
V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the seasou of "fair autumnal skies, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that happy combination between business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn ■pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week m March, throw care to the windB and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, j industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go 1 to mar the p...
