PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS Is the psychic sense more developed in Americans than in Englishmen? The question is raised by the follow ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Hamp stead) to the editor of "The Express":— I have seen Mr G. K- Chesterton's play "Magic," and I am bound to ad mit that it interested and amused me as much as anything I have seen for years. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, I have a strong objection to raise. The play deals with a professional con jurer who, in addition to his trade, is well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, the conjurer is in love with a lady. The fly in the oint ment is the lady's brother, who repre sents all that is crass, cheeky, ignor ant and bumptious, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so im pervious in regard to spiritual matters is said to be that he has been living...

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

CHAPTER XV. The family was -gathered together in the delightful sitting room at SouthJbourne, overlooking the promen ade. Mr. Gordon Price, who had con sumed large quantities of champagne since the departure of the bride and bridegroom and the suppression of a telegram, was inclined to restlessness, and had just announced his intention of obtaining a breath of fresh air and isked Philip to accompany. The shadows of evening were deepening. Mrs. Price was on the sofa. Al ready she had complained dolefully of missing Queenie, and had been told by her husband—with intense irony —not to exhibit selfishness. She ought to be thankful that her daughter 'was happily married ta a worthy fellow— Michael, to wit, God 'bless him! Beryl sat, in a shadowed corner, I thankful that no one as yet had sug gested turning on the lights. When the ne'er-do-well son and thei ne'er-do-well father reached the front door, a man on the other side was aibout to ring the (bell. When Mr. Price opened the door he ...

"GO I MUSI" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

"60 I MUSI" CALL, OF THE ANTARCTIC. (By Sir Ernest Shackleton, in "The Daily Mail.") Yonder the long horizon lies And there, by night and day, J. he old ships draw to port again, ■ And the young ships sail away; And come I may, but go I must, Ana if men ask me why, You can lay the blame on the sun and stars, And the white road and the sky." have often been asked, what can one see in the cold, inhospitable regions 2 J ,5 Antarctic? And, confronted by a bald question such as that, it is hard to give an answer. ir7hte m^i'e that one feels what Keats calls ' The dearth of human words, the roughness of moral speech," shows that there must be an intangible -n", ? that dra-ws one back to the wild wastes of the Antarctic. And it is there, if those of us that Know it could only set it down in so many words. Even since we were last there we have thought and dreamed mde stretches of snow and ica, the silence of those places where men never trod before, the wonder of the unknown as it rolled in...

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma gistrates' Ciub (says 'The Daily News" of December 5). Mr M'Kenna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. He expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with the approval of both recognised par ties, but even with the approval of the recognised cranks. (Laughter). They hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to feduce the num ber of prisoners. "We hope," he continued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should be avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to the victim of them, and they don't jprotect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline and the conditions of work which he would learn—useful work would enable hi...

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 February 1914

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT | "That Is one of the most wonderful things in London," said a country visi tor, as he stood near the dell at the end of the Serpentine and watched a • man feeding real wild wood-pigeons with grain and peas. Not only (says "The Daily Telegraph") did the pigeons feed about his feet, but presently one of the boldest among them fluttered up and actually settled on the feeder's wrist, suffering itself there to be gently stroked on the back as it took the food. The countryman stared in undisguised astonishment. i He knew that out in his own plough lands, where the winter-proud wheat is just now spreading a delicate haze of green over the brown acres, and in the leafless beech woods through which you can see for a quarter of a mile, against the twenty yards that would limit the view in summer, these same pigeons are the most cautious of wild fowl. You need the cunning of a Red Indian to get near them in the day time, the patience of a Sioux to way- . la...

THE COHUNA LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 March 1914

THE COHUNA LINK. The Cohuna "Farmers Weekly" writes:—"With a view .to expedit ing the actual work of construction, when once a,start has been made it is urged at Cohuna that the depart ment should procced with the work simultaneously at various points of the route, instead of operatiug merely at oue end only. It is con tended that the work of excavation and of throwing up the bed of the line, which presents no serious difficuties of a technical nature, could be let in five mile lengths to local farmers and contractors along the entire course of the line. Iu this way the foundation work could be enormously quickened, as com pared with the single and tedious process by day labor, whilst the wider disbursement of money that would result would, it is thought, incidentally help many struggling settlers and others. This aspect will probably be placed under the notice of Mr Angus in the course of a few days."
