j The German Emperor, following the advice of his physician, has (says "Lloyd's Weekly News," of January IS) been combatting the growth of obesity by spending a certain time every day in chopping wood at Pots dam. Clad hi Court hunting dress, the Kaiser could be seen almost every morning in the grounds of the palace—of the privilege of access to which the public makes but little use at this time of the year—vigorously plying a saw on the trunk and branches of trees, and then, with un diminished energy, hewing the short logs into pieces of convenient size for burning. In this occupation he was assisted by an expert forester. Not infrequently the Empress watched her consort at his unfamiliar exer cise, and jocularly measured up the pile of firewood to see whether the prescribed daily task had been fully accomplished, while occasionally an aide-de-camp found axo or saw pressed into his Inexperienced hands, with the Imperial command to try his skill with those tools.

BERNHARDT HONORED [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 March 1914

BERNHARDT HONORED Mme. Sarah Bernhardt is a Knight of the Legion or Honor (says "The Daily Express" of January 16). The news was telephoned to her last night while she was resting between two acts of M. Tristan Bernard's play, "Jeanne Dore." It became known in tho theatre before' the play was over, and when the curtain fell the audience remained in the theatre and gave the new Knight of the Legion a rousing ovation. Then the company collected round the great actress, and she was the re cipient of a touching attention. In anticipation of the event the mem bers of the company had bought a Cross of the Legion of Honor set in brilliants to be ready to pin it on Mme. Bernhardt's breast as soon as she had tho right to wear it. It was two in the morning before the now "Chevalier" got home, and when she arrived she found 50 or more of her | friends waiting to congratulate her, and the whole houso heaped up with flowers from friends who had not been able to como.

BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 March 1914

BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS Those who attended yesterday morn ing's sitting at the St. Paul's "Girl's School, Hammersmith, of the Vacation Conference on Musical Education (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January S), saw and heard a remarkable demon stration. It was given by a group of boy and girl pupils from the Royal Normal College for the Blind, under the direction of Mr Horace "Watling, one of the professors, himself deprived of sight, at that famous institution. Primarily, the performance of these blind juveniles was intended to illus trate a lecture by Miss Nancy Gilford on "The Creative Faculty in the Pupil: How to Make Use of it as a Valuable lAgent in Teaching." Certainly, the demonstration achieved that purpose, but it did much more. It showed the marvellous intensification, as it were, of the faculty of hearing, and the ex treme sensitiveness to niceties of rhythm and to tonal distinctions that seem tc compensate many of those born blind for their lack of vision. ...

CHAPTER III. The Archdeacon. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 March 1914

CHAPTER III. The Archdeacon. I. No acquaintance called him "by any other name than the Archdeacon; Dut dimly it was remembered by his friends that he had been (baptised "George." A fat and kindly man he was, who oozed benevolence from every human pore, had a voice which should have come -up from the depths of the sea, and a hand which touched j all things with gentleness. I The friendship between Hugh Don ald and the Archdeacon was of old standing. Hugh remembered the ami able cleric at Aberfeldy almost as Jonjj as he could remember anything at all. The truth was that the Very Rev George Hedges fished both for the souls of men and the 'bodies of salmon, and was almost equally suc cessful at either vocation. To him, Hugh Donald was as his own son— and in this light he thought of him i as he sat upon the bridge deck of the yacht Chrisfabel that sunny after noon and listened to the golfers' 'bab ble. A woman! The Archdeacon prick ed up his ears at such talk. "Has he known her long.' Di...

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) in. It was nearly one o'clock when they returned to the cottage—Leila was waiting for them on the road. She must have run in and out ol the cot tage a hundred times since they went; perhaps she had reproached herself as many because she let them go. It is true that she thought she knew all about Sir Hugh Donald, 'bar onet, of Afoerfeldy Castle. Why, sure ly every one at Newcastle could tell you his story and she heard it twen ty ;times since the yacht Christabel set his party ashore. **e was a very rich man and she was so poor. The simple estimate of riches and poverty came swiftly to the woman's mind for the child's sake.
