"MADE LIFE A MISERY" [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
"MADE LIFE A MISERY" I The story of a man and woman's struggle in a Kensington flat in the darkness of the early morning in which the man was shot, and lia throat was cut, was told at West London yester day (says "The Daily News" of Janu ary 23), when the woman, Julia Delcies, was charged with attempting to mur der Basil Piffard. The couple went out on the evening of January 14, and early next morning the servant girl was awakened by the noise of smashing glass and a banging on her door. The passage and kitchen were in darkness. In the latter when she switched on the light she saw Piffard holding down the woman with one hand, and holding out a revolver with the other. When she went to call a doctor and the police she.noticed that the woman held a knife, Deles had told her, she said, that Plffard had taunted her about another girl. Dr Armstrong said Piffard told him. "This woman has shot me." He had a wound over the eye, and his throat was cut. The woman said sheo had done it because...
STATE GOVERNORS FUTURE APPOINTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
STATE GOVERNORS FUTURE APPOINTMENTS (By HII, K. Ellison, in "Westminster Gazette,") The question as to whether local men should be appointed as State Go vernors in Australia is one which orops up periodically, and in view of the cable which appeared in the Lon don Press on December 10, it is per haps of more than passing interest to give some information which has no little bearing upon the cable in ques (ion, The cable states that the West Australia Legislative Assembly peti. tioned the Home Government, asking that the office of Governor of that State might be filled by a citizen of the Commonwealth. The Colonial Secretary replied that a change in the system of appointing State Governors could not be entertained unless it ap plied to all Australian States, and until public opinion in Australia was over whelmingly favorable to the proposal. It is not realised in England how strongly a section of the Australian public feels on the subject of locally appointed Governors, and this opin...
JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND, (By B. Bruce Mitford, F.R.G.S., in "The Daily Telegraph,") With' characteristic suddenness the Islands of Japan have added one more to the already long list of their vol canic disasters. The unexpected and destructive outburst of the Sakuras hima volcano will serve to remind us that the land which the passing tourist is wont to apostrophise as that of the lotus-"where it is always afternoon" is one of the most troubled on the face of this planet. Japan has 160 separate volcanoes. Three-fourths of these are "dead." That is to say, they are so regarded official. ly-in the maps of the Toklo geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the lie to the recorders of their history. Sakurashima, though not "dead," was generally thought to be "dying." Some ten years ago the present writer was taken to task by a local pundit for describing this volcano, in a little work of reference, as still active, Two years before the great eruption of Ba...

NEW BATTLESHIPS SMALLER DISPLACEMENTS Two of the five now battleships of the Royal Sovereign class which are pro vided for in the Navy Estimates of the current financial year, were (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 16), laid down yesterday-the Royal Oak at Devonport and the Royal Sovereign at Portsmouth.

HISTORIC TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
IlISTORIC TOWN Of the three big parish ehurches which will shortly become the cathe drals of the three new dioceses, the most interesting is St. James's, Bury St. Edmunds. The town has asso ciations which make it worthy of ibeing the cathedral city of a diocese, lPariament was held in the town in 1272, 1290, and 1446, and sovereigns were entertained there in former ages in lavish manner. The Abbey, which Canute foundad in 1020, bectame one of the richest and most important in medieval times, with an enormous income. The "new" cathedral chutrch dates from the flf teentih centtry, but the tower, which serveis as a tsort of campanile, is at oilue of Ntormani England, and is said to hlie the original work of Abbot An ;lini, iwho was ait nephiew of the faimous archbiisihop. 'T'he new see will bie know n as St. Edmits ndsbury and Ipswich, a not unpicturesique de eignation, recalling the combination of St. Andrews and EIdinburgh. I
GIRL'S INFATUATION [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
GIRL'S INFATUATION A remarkable story of a schoolgirl's Infatuation for a music hall artist, for whom she sacrificed her hair, was told, at the Central Criminal Court (aays "The Daily Express" of Janu ary 10), when Frank Hiarwood, aged 39, was indicted on a charge of having unlawfully taken a girl named Nellie Dunn, under the age of 10 years, out of the possession of Charles Herbert Dunn, her father, Harwood pleaded not guilty, Mr. Travers Humphreys, who pro secuted, stated that Harwood was a married man, and the girl would be 15 years old on February 20. "She lived with her parents at Streatham," he added, "and in Sep tember, 1912, when she was 1312 years old and attending Streatham Modern College, Harwood got into conversa tion with her and some other girls outside the school. He seemed to take a fancy to Nellie Dunn, and asked her to meet him that evening near Streatham Common, She agreed, but did not keep the appointment. "A few days later she found him waiting for her outside t...
WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY AMUSEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY AMUSEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. Winter sports in Norway (writes a correspondent in "The Times") are the amusement of the people. They might really be called democratic If the word were not habitually used to denote something disagreeable and unpopular. For there is hardly a man or woman in Norway under middle age, except tt.e infirm, who does not spend most of his or her spare time struggling with the laws of gravity in the winter months. And there are five of these winter months at the very least, even at sea level; higher up they have never been counted, but enthusiasts take "a busman's holiday" by holding an an nual ski-Jumping competition on Mid summer's Day somewhere in the moun tains near Finse. The strange thing is that the cult for winter sports is not much older in Nor way than elsewhere. Boys have pre sumably always tried to slide dowr slopes somehow, and the more leisur. ed used to do a little skating; but, 40 years ago, it was not considered gen teel to ...
FAMOUS INSTITUTION [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
FAMOUS INSTITUTION An informative' sketch of the history of the Foundling Hiospital in Blooms bury was given by the Solicitor-Gene ral, Sir Stanley Bulcknauiter, K.C., in Mr Justice Joyce's Court, yesterday, in an action by the Crown. against the governors of tilhe hospital (says '"T'hleo Daily News," January 21). The Court was asked for a declara tion that the defendants were not leg ally entitled to part w-lth lands in Bloomsbury without the consent of the Board of Education (who took the place of the Charity Commissloners under the Charitable Trust Act, 1853), on the ground that the hospital was not a cha rity exempt from the provisions of the Act of 1853. The hospital, he said, could not claim exemption unless it was a mixed char ity-partly maintaned by income from endowments and partly by voluntary subscriptions. At the present day the hospital had an income of upwards of £27,000 a year from its endowments, and received from voluntary annual subscriptions a sum of £11 a year. I...
SAFETY AT SEA WIRELESS WATCH CONTINUOUS [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
SAFETY AT SEA WIRELESS WATCH CONTINUOUS Important regulations for securing the safety of life at sea have been made by the International Conference which was convened by the British Government, All the great maritime countries were represented, under the presidency of Lord Mersey, and on Monday (states "The Daily News" January 21) the Conference, which dealt with separate branches by means of five sub-committees, adopted a convention of 74 articles. This will not be published until February 15, but an outline of the principal points has been officially communicated. The results are of the utmost im portance, inasmuch as this is the first time that there has been a conference of all the maritime nations on the subject, The convention must be ratified by the end of this year, and it is proposed that it should come in to operation on July 1, 1915. It is laid down that there must be boats for all. These may be open lifeboats, pontoon lifeboats, and some pontoon life-rafts, As large a nu...
FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER NAND On several occasions "The Daily Ex press" has called attention to the in congruities connected with the cham pionship titles that go with the .Lons dale boxing belts, There is nothing wrong with the belts themselves, it says, nor with the methods imposed for acquiring them. Although belts do not make champions, the introduction of these trophies into boxing has brought about a most desirable improvement in the sport. To eliminate the belt interest from boxing now would be wiping out one of the greatest inducements for aspirants to fame and fortune to keep on the path to success, To drop belt interest would be to curtail, if not almost entirely era dicate, public interest in the more im portant boxing matches, Conditions have arisen, however, for which the framers of belt rules made no allowance. The rules, excellent in their way, fail to provide for one con tingency, and the fact has lately been brought home with increasing em phasis. T...
PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS, . The United States is the greatest film-producing country in the world (writes L.R., in "The Westminster Ga zette"). It Is no exaggeration to say that over 50 per cent. of the world's productions have their origin there. During the first nine months of last year the country exported 20,000,000 feet of film, more than three-quarters of which came to Great Britain. The kinemato graph industry in America must, how over, be somewhat hampered by the extraordinary censorship conditions prevailing, which are in the hands of no fewer than forty-eight separate and distinct Jurisdictions. Though America is responsible for most of the film-producing, Great Brli tain is easily first in the matter of dis tribution, quite 80 per cent, of the world's pictures being "released" here. This means employment for many thousands of Britons in offices, theatres and show-rooms, and is a striking ex ample of the advantage of freetrade. On Wednesday evening next, c...
NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
NEW SURGERY I ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED The excitement created among doctors by the radium treatment of cancer (says the "Central News") will probab ly be overshadowed at an early date by the announcement to the medical profession of an astonishing operation now being performed at Guy's Hospital, which in the near future is bound to re volutionise the whole practice of opera tive surgery. The operation so far has been ap plied to cases of certain forms of tu berculosis, and so successful has it proved that it has now been accepted at Guy's as the correct treatment for this disease, The principle of the treatment, the "Central News" was informed by an eminent surgeon, is the removal of the cause of the disease. For long it has been recognised that the excessive mul tiplication of noxious bacteria in the larger intestine and the inability of the body to eliminate them was the pre disposing cause of many diseases. The Metchnikoff sour milk treatment, which purported to purify this or...
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS,. One of the findings of science on the subject of pouitry-keepin'g is that a hen requires one-fiftieth of her weight in food every day to maintain her bodily %igor. So, if a hen weighs 61b. 4oz. thu daily allowance of food ought to be 2oz, But that allows noth Ing for the mantufacture of the egg. A hen in full lay is asumed to lay 10oz, in a wek. As 60 per cent, of an egg is water, that means that at least 4oz, more food must be allowed, A safe rule is to allow laying hens about 3oz. of food per day. In con, fined runs, much more care has to be taken to give a wellybalanced ration than when the fowls run free. In the latter case the birds seldom become too fat, and they keep themselves In health by eating a variety of green food, which acts as a corrective to all sorts of complaints to which other fowls are subject.
THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
THE POULTRY YARD, SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in. valuable, aid no poultry-keeper can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, Is often remedled by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful per bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat, When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs, Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate, This saline treatment is wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and hby Its action on the intestin...
