STRAINGERS IN THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910

STRAINGERS IN THE HOUSE. The spectacle of a boy in an Eton suit listening to a debate in the House of Lords from the steps of the Throne, as was reported a day or two ago of the twelve-year-old Lord Ersltine (writes the "'Westminster Gazette") is by no means uncommon in the Upper Clvm ber. The House of Commons has had much less conventional visitors, includ ing more than one Infant in arms. On one occasion, when Lord John Russell was Premier, a debate in the Commons was interrupted by a childish voice ex claiming, "Oh,< mammy dear, there's pupa!" The Speaker (Mr Shaw-Le f'cvre) was horrified, and promptly sent the Sergeant-at-Arms to remove the in truder, wliiio Mr Bernal Osborne con vulsed the House by proclaiming the Identity of -the offender. "A wise 'child knows its own father," lie said; "it is Lord Johns baby!"

A PEARSON PROBLEM.

The problem has happily now I teen not merely under stood but solved.

UNCLAIMED RICHES. MILLIONS WITH OWNERS UNKNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910

UNCLAIMED RICHES. MILLIONS WITH OWNERS UNKNOWN. How many millions of pounds' worth of property lies unclaimed to day in the form of shares, dividends, deposits of money, plate, and jewels in the' hands of hankers, companies, solicitors, auctioneers, and others? This is the fascinating question raised in the "Times" on August 24th by the writers of a letter, who urge the Chancellor of the Exchequer to lay hands upon the spoil, and de vote it to the increase of national revenue. Unclaimed wealth in the hands of the Crown and funds in Chancery amount to more than £50,000,000. Is it possible that the funds in pri vate hands amount to an 'equally large sum? Some of the examples of hidden wealth given by Jhe writers of the letter suggest that the amount must at any rate be a large one. It is not, apparently, the custom of com panies to search very far for the owners of unclaimed dividends. Occa sionally the chairman of a company refers to unclaimed amounts. In the ease of a building socio...

THE KING'S HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910

THE KING'S HOLIDAY. At Marion bad King 13d ward's holiday cannot be all enjoyment. IIc; has been mercilessly mobbed, and lio ban always to rcckon with the crowd, who would resent being called a mob, which fol lows in the wake of Royally. A writer In the "Queen" points out that just now, "If health and rest are what is sought after, Marienbad, in spite of the beautiful scenery and strict cure, fs not exactly the place to go to. There is too much excitement attendant on the presence of the King, and as much heart-burning amongst those who arc merely liangers-on to the fringe of so ciety as though they were back in May fair in the height of the season. Invi tations to Hie little ■ lloynl dinners are, indeed, a far greater test of the King's friendship than are those to bigger functions in town, for there things are more 'en familie,' and this autumn euro is one of t'ne few occasions on which His Majesty puts aside the pomp and splendor of Court ctl'iucltc and goes about among his frien...

FASCINATING MEMOIRS. A BOOK OF THE DAY. LADY FANSHAWE'S. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910

FASCINATING MEMOIRS. A BOOIC OF THE .DAY. ' LADY. FANSH AWE'S. These fascinating memoirs, oyigl* nally published in 1830, should re ceive a new lease of life and interest in this pleasant edition in the "Crown Library." The story told within thoir pages is of something fa? more romantic than any of the 'popular fiction dealing with the same period. Here wo are at the heart of the old Cavalier lite and the rally which was made for a lost cause in defence of King, against-'Parliament.' The story is of astonishing suc cesses and equally astonishing re verses; the mighty put down from their, seat and again, after tribula tion, exalted. Lady Fanshawe. was the wife of one of the most promi nent'and most faithful adherents of the oid cause, that Sir Kichard Fan shawe who attracted Shorthousc .and seems to have walked straight out of the pages of "John Inglesant." Her memoir possesses vivacity, a: dignity of; style, and that inexplicable quality of charni which can cause the writ ings of so...

THE DESCENT OF THE RHONE A KOAD THAT MARCHES. ■ French waterways—those chemins qui marchent, as'Michclet calls them —are of infinite charm and diversity.

THE BISLEY SYSTEM. "ALL WRONG." [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 March 1910

THE BISLEY SYSTEM.' "ALL WRONG." Mr "Walter "Winans, the famous,sports man and shot, lias, In the "World," something to -jay of Bisley. The system of shooting there, in his opinion, is "all wrong":—"It is absolutely contrary to the conditions o£ warfare, and the Bis ley champion is almost more useless at the front than the man who has never before handled a rifle. The shooting at a big stationary target at long range is the worst possible training. In tlio firs.t place, the men fire with a black sis-lit upon a white object. It is just the re verse in warfare. A soldier..never has to lire at a white object. It is always black or dark. The Boers in South Af rica always shoot with white ivory Sights, and no 'doubt part of their good shooting in the late war was due to that fact." Then the Bisley man fires under the most artificial conditions. "Helibs down on his stomach and rests "his el bow on the ground.

T*f£tA33|£8' COUWIV. 1 I HEALTH HINTS, The sprain should be treated at onco to an application of water as hot as can be borne. This may be done by shower ins hot water upon it, or by hot cloths applied frequently. Wormwood boiled in vinegar and ap plied as hot as can be borne on a sprain or bruise is an invaluable remedy. The affected member should afterwards bo j rolled in flannol to retain the heat. i An easy way to soften hard water do- I lightfully is to throw orange peel into it just before the water is used. The peel will not only only prove agreeable to the skin, but will give out a fragrance like that which follows the use of toilet water. I Up to the year of ton, children are much better without tea or coffee. Milk or milk-and-water Is far better. Neither should pickles nor condiments of any kind except salt be allowed, and moat should be allowed only once a day.
