PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS Is tho psychic scnso more developed in Americans than in Englishmen. The question Is raised by tho follow ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Hamp stead) to tho editor of "Tho Express : I have seen Mr G. K. Chesterton's play "Magic," and I am bound to ad mit that it interested and amused mo as much as anything I havo seen for Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, I havo a strong objection to raise. The play deals with a professional con jurer who, in addition to his trader is well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, tho conjurer Is in love with a lady. Tho Jly in tho oint ment is tho lady's brother, who repre sents all that is crass, cheeky, ignor ant und bumptious, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and tho reason ho is so ignorant and so im pervious in regard to spiritual matters is said to be that he has been living some ye...
WOMAN OF TO=MORROW IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF FEMINISM [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
WOMAN OF MORROW IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF FEMINISM (By H. M. Swanwick In "The Dully News and Leader.") rhoro is ono thing one would like feminism to do at once, and that is to chango its name to humanism. The great change, which has been coming over the humanist movement of late and which has been increasing the velocity of tho movement so that one feels if will in the near future sweep in all humanity, is that it is becoming a working women's movement. It is turning women who never worked be fore into workers, and it is touching the greyest lives of toiling mothers with warmth and light. In England, the movement began in the middle classes, and somo of the most effective stimu lus was at first given by men. It now receives its velocity and mass mo inly from women, and these masses are tho working women. Humanism is a far wider creed than a merely political one. It has its roots in social necessity, and. deeper still, in ethical and religious Right. It is based on the psychological law of...
COCOANUT GROWING PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
COCOANUT GROWING PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE?. During the past few years (says "The Dally Telegraph") the constantly-rising price of the products of the cocoanut palm tree has not only attracted the at tention of tropical plantenrengaged In the production of the nuts and manu facturers in Europe and America,who employ cocoanut-oll, or coir, in their industries, but also interested financiers desirous of finding new outlets for capital. i The advance In prices have been phc nominal. A very few years ago copra —that is, dried kernels of the cocoanut from which the oil is obtainod—could be bought at from £10 to £12 per ton. The market quotations yesterday for the same article wcro from £30/15/ to £32 18/9 per ton, an increase of nearly .*500 per cent, in about ten years. The causes of this remarkablo Inflation arc not far to seek. It la simply due to the fact that the production of cocoa nuts is insufficient to keep pace with the world's demands. Cocoanut oil has ! long been in us* for the m...
POLICEMAN A FRIEND FIRST NIGHT IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
POLICEMAN A FRIEND I - FIRST NIGHT IN LONDON. i (By a Stranded Australian in "Tho \ "British Australasian.") f Night was closing in as, tired and weary after a day's vain search for work, I turned my steps to the Em bankment—that last refuge of 'London s homeless. Big Ben was striking Beven as I sank, almost exhausted, one one of the seats. Soon I began to dose fit fully, conscious even in my sleep that it was growing very cold. I dreamed of my old homo in the Australian bush; . of the days when, even as a boy, I used I to help "round up" the cattle with the ! crack oC my long lashed stock whip; I lived once again that terrible day 1 when the Hoods burst from tho Blue i Mountains, sweeping away tho homo : stead and all tho cattle which had not accidentally strayed to a placo of safety. In my dreams I recalled the old college days, and—most vivid recol lection of-tho day on which the Chancel lor presented me with my testamur. IIow proud my father was.

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
CHAPTER XV. The family was gathered together in the delightful sitting room at Southibourne, 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 slie 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, thankful that na one as yet had sug gested turning on the lights. When the ne'er-do-well son and the ne'er-do-well father reached the front door, a man on the other aide "was about to ring the 'bell. When Mr. Price opened the door he fo...

"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914
"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. (By Sir Ernest Shackloton, In "The Dally Mall.") "Yonder tho long horizon lies And there, by night and day, The old ships draw to port again, And the young ships sail away; And come I may, but go I must, And if men ask me why, You can lay the blame on the sun and • stars, And the white road and the sky." I have often been asked, what can one see in the cold, inhospitable regions of the Antarctic? And, confronted fry a bald question such as that, it is hard -to give an answer. . The mere fact that one feels what Keats calls " The dearth of human words, the roughness of moral speech," shows that there must he an Intangible something that draws one back to tho wild wastes of the Antarctic. And it is there, if those of us that know It could only, set It down in bO many words. Even since we wero last there we have thought and dreamed of the wide stretches of snow and ice, tho silence of those places where men never trod: before, tho wonder of the unknow...

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT "That is one of the most wonuenui things in London," said a country visi tor, as ho 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 •'Tho Daily Telegraph") did the pigeons teed about his feet, but presently one of tho boldest among them fluttered up and actually settled on the feeder's wrist, suffering Itself there to bo gently stroked on the back as it took the food. Tho countryman stared In undisguised astonishment. I He knew that out in his own plough- I lands, where the winter-proud wheat Is Just now spreading a delicate haze of green over tho brown acres, and in tho leafless beech woods through which . you can see for a quarter of a mile, 1 against the twenty yards that would limit tho view In summer, these same pigeons are the most cautious of wild fowl. You need tho cunning of a Red/ Indian to get near them in tho day-/l time, the patience of a Sioux to wa...

THROUGH THE TELESCOPE MOON'S DISTANCE MEASURED. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 March 1914
THROUGH THE TELESCOPE MOON'S DISTANCE -MEASURED. A learned professor, with nlno letters after his name liaa become a small boys' hero (says "The Daily Mail," of December 31). Professor H. H. Turner, D.Sc., D.C.L., F.R.S., Savillan Professor of Astronomy in the Unvorsity of Oxford, who yester day delivered his second lecture at the Royal Institution, London, has caught the imagination of the small boy llko a Jules Verne or a Stevenson. Ho has overcome the firmly rooted conviction of the young that all real professors must be dry, elderly, and grim, and that st lecture is a dull sort of thing. Professor Turner possesses the geni ality of a benevolent uncle. Ho under stands just what appeals to small,boys and disguises his sclencc in a delightful "inake up." Yesterday ho was sur rounded by balloons, aeroplanes, kites, telescopes, and continuing his subject, "A Voyage in Space," he took his audi ence up toward^ the moon, which Is iMO.OOO miles away. ! But how do we know the moon is till...
