PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 26 March 1914
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murderer; have recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent of capital sen tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain :beinig over 50 per cent. The newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals a, victims of the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the Germar law all capital punishments must bE carried out by beheading, but it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts whict were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other region, may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus sian -method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.
FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 26 March 1914
FORTUNES REFUSED. It is said that when it became known that the letters of the great Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, were to be published, offers to pur chase them. were received from all over the world, and that one great newspaper proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon which she might inscribe her own price. The offer was refused: Robert Browning constantly refused to write 'for the magazines and re views. He only departed from his self-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were offered to him even for a short poem. He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying day. But this determination to refuse money when it is offered is evidently not the attribute of the well-to-do only, for a laborer in Pennsylvania has just refused two fortunes amounting to £20,000, which actually await...

PAINTING THE EIFFEL TOWER.

The shade has yet to be decided up .on. The Eiffel Tower started twenty two years ago in orange, wore red in 1893, golden yellow in 1899, and silver white on the summit and chrome yel low at the base in 1907. There are people who would vote for an invisible shade of khaki for the coming-renew al: The tower is now used as a wire less telegraph station, as a. post for an electric device to prevent hailstorns, and as a guiding mark for aviators.
