COVENT GARDEN INTERESTING HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
COYENT GARDEN INTERESTING HISTORY The income of the huge estate which now passes into the hands of this won derful financial expert, llr Mallaby Deeley, M.P., is enormous (says "The Daily News," December 17, referring to the purchase of tho Duke of Bedford's Covent Gardens estate). It is calculated that latterly the Duke of Bedford had received £25,000 a year for market rights and tolls from Covent Garden Market alone. Covent (originally Convent) Garden was used by the monks of Westminster in the 16th century as a carden and burial ground. It passed to the Duke of Somerset at tho time of the disso lution of the monasteries, and, after his execution, from the Crown to John Rus sell, first Karl of Bedford-whose town house remained, where Southampton street now is, until 1704. Before tho Bed ford family developed it into a resort of fashionable and "gay" people Covent Garden was described as "of the yearly value of £6/6/S." The market dates from 1630-31. when tho fourth Earl of Bedford...
NAVVY MISSION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
NAVVY MISSION "The breaking-strain comes in a month. They then go into the town and blow their stake, hitting' the high spots and getting tanked up. . . ." The interviewer - a "Daily News" representative - flew signals of distress and a paraphrase was conceded. "What I mean," explained the speaker, Mr J. M. M'Cormick, the head of the little army of missionaries work ing under the Navvy Mission in Can ada, "is that to a man in camp draw ing good money the temptation to go off to the nearest town and simply let himself go is tremendous. We have enormous odds against us in the work we are trying to do, but, man, it's great work! "Tile whole manhood of Canada is being made out there on the frontiers, away from anyone who sees or anyone who cares except, maybe, a wife, or a mother or a sweetheart away in the homeland, waiting for the man pushing the steel road out on to the prairie and laying up the capital that will set him up in his farm and bring his folk out to him across the Atlanti...

DRURY LANE ORANGE WOMEN RIGHT RECOGNISED [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
DRURY LANE ORANGE WOMEN RIGHT RECOGNISED Mr M'Kenna, the Home Secretary, made himself the most popular man in Covent Garden on Tuesday by his profiipt action in recognising the tradi tional right of the orange women of Drury Lane to ply their trade outside - the Theatre Royal (says "Lloyd's .> .Weekly," January 18.) ] How the Merry Monarch chose a fav- j orite from the ranks of the Drury Lane j orange girls and Nell G Wynne became J the mother of a duke, has passed into history, but it is not so well recognised that ever since the seventeenth century generation after generation of orange girls have been allowed to stand out side the theatre, and thus an equitable right has grown up. When it became known that the police had dislodged the orange-women the Costermongers' Union took the mat ter up, and as a result Mr Kingsley .Wood, L.C.C., Introduced to the Home Secretary at the Home Office 011 Tues day a deputation including a dozen of the orange sellers, baskets and all.

MONEY IN STAMPS PRICE FOR EARL'S COLLECTION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
MONEY IN STAMPS PRICE FOR EARL'S COLLECTION The greatest deal in the history of stamp collecting came to light on Sat urday, when it was announced that the famous collection made by the late Earl of Crawford had been purchased by Messrs Edwin Healey and Company, on behalf of Mr R. B. Sparrow, of Talybont-on-Usk, Brecknock. The purchase plice, it is stated, is close on £20,000, a recqcd figure for a single collection. * Stamp collecting, (says "The Daily Mail,") was the one great hobby of the late Earl of Crawford, and he succeed ed in gathering together a large num ber of exceedingly rare and valuable stamps. It is estimated that he spent at least £40.000 on the collection, or more than double the price for which it has been sold.

"It is rich in stamps that are not to be found in any col lection, and the condition generally is magnificent. "It is the most complete accumula tion of Engli...
COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT Professor M. Bonn, of Munich Uni versity, read an interesting paper to the Royal Colonial Institute last night on "German Colonial Policy." Viscount Milner presided (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January M), and in the course of a short speech compared the relative positions of Germany and Eng land in relation to Colonial policy, and pointed out how their common interests might be advanced. Professor Bonn said that Germany ruled a Colonial Empire five times as big as the Fatherland, with about 14 million natives. Slu* ruled them not always very wisely and not yet very effectively everywhere; but she ruled them without very great efforts. She had, of course, wasted money occasion ally. She had had an extremely costly war in South-West Africa on which about £20,000,000 was spent. There had been native risings and extremely silly European settlement schemes, but everything taken together (war costs, loans, etc.) the total expenditure for the last 12 years had been...

Well rub into leg, with two days between each applica tion, until cured.. When keeping fowls in small runs, an extra plot of ground should be re served for the growing of green feed, which is indispensable if the "birds are to do well and keep well. Use crushed charcoal in the yarda and you will have healthy birds. It is a splendid internal cleansing agent. The bowels are the best indicators of condition.

LAND OF SNOW FROM FAR NORWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
LAND OF SNOW FROM FAR NORWAY. (By Harold Spender, in "The Daily News.") Here we are on the roof of Norway. Yet we are living a life of simple com- 1 fort, well lighted and well heated in our two-storeyed wooden hotel, and en joying the most pleasant companion ship. The very snowdrifts that hank 1 up our walls really seem quite friend ly and cosy neighbors. To-day the thermometer showed 23 degrees of frost. But from ten o'clock until two a glowing sun - travelling low along the southern horizon-pour ed its rays from a blue sky over the spotless snowfields that surround us; and for those few hours life seemed far warmer and more genial than in Lon don. We are far above all vegetation and all animal life. Standing to-day on the top of one of the hills that look down on this place-which is just a hotel and nothing more -I could see neither beast nor bird, nor hear any single sound break the utter stillness of the white world around me. The water falls are frozen. The wind is-for the mom...

THE LIZARD-BIRD "A NEW CHAPTER OF EVOLUTION." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
THE LIZARD-BIRD "A NEW CHAPTER OF EVOLU TION." Some hope ol finding a missing link between two animal kingdoms, the bird and the wingless quadruped, is entertained by those now beginning a microscopic investigation of a part of the booty of the Scott Antarctic ex pedition. A wonderful series of pen guins' eggs, in every state of incuba tion, was secured, and was sent to Cambridge University. The work of inspection has just begun, and is at tended with no little excitement of the scientific sort (according to "The Daily Mail"). As appears on the very page of Captain Scott's diary now opened at the British Museum, the five weeks' expedition in search of the penguins was heroic in the fullest sense of the word. The three men, Dr. Wilson, Lieutenant Bowers, and Mr Cherry Garrard, set out in the continuous darkness of the winter. They were caught by a blizzard, lost their tent for several days, and only discovered it, along with their own safety, by a happy chance. No naturalists' ex ped...

BITER BIT PASSENGER AND PORTER. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which are sometimes made against railway servants, Mr W. F. Jackson, the general manager of the North British Railway Company (Eng land), has been telling a good story, the facts of which he said, were ascer tained in the investigation of a com plaint made by the principal actor. An old lady'turhed up at one of the Glasgow stations, 'ami, going up to a ; porter, said, "I say, porter, can you tell mo where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" he asked. "What have you got to do with that? Can you tell me where I will get my train?" "But I cannot tell with out " "Well, I'm not going to tell you where I'm going. I'll get some one else to help me."

WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OP ARBITRATION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
WORKER FOR LABOR ] r ADVOCATE OP ARBITRATION i It is unusual to And a man within a little of liis eightieth birthday whose lifo has been one of labor intent upon neiv plans by which he may be bur dened with duties to take the place of larger affairs that he is now hardly strong enough to carry (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January 14). That was the task a "Daily News" visitor found Mr Robert Applegarth, the veteran reformer, trade unionist, and educationist engaged upon yesterday. "Bob" Applegarth will never retire from the trade union movement. Dur ing the last dock strike this little, frail man was looking after the wounded. He was asked by a famous leader to speak on Tower Hill on one occasion, and went there to do so. But the memory of the stricken back streets overwhelmed him, and he could not speak. Such is his sympathy. IN THE FOREFRONT Robert Applegarth is one of the greatest figures in the history of trade unionism and of the working class movement. He has been in th...
