BLIND VICAR OF LYTHAM [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 March 1914

BLIND VICAR OP Ll'TIIAJl The Rev. Canon Hawkins, M.A., has announced that after holding the oftice of Vicar of Lytham for forty-four years he was about to lay down the burden of pastoral duty. For twenty-two years, according to "The British Weekly", Canon Hawkins has been blind, but never has a man borne an affliction moro bravely. He has never shirked any duty belonging to his ofllce, and with the years he had steadily grown in the breadth of his outlook on all public questions. He has lived on the most cordial terms with his Freo Church neighbors, and has done much to strengthen good feeling among all classes in the community. Ho was the head and front of most public movements, and his large charity will only be discovered as the days show the need for timely help in vari ous directions.

The broad road would have served his purpose, but there were a number of children scattered along it. staring in wonder at the aeroplane so close above them. .Vs a ...

COUNTRYSIDE CHANGED WOOD TORN UP FOR GOLF LINKS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 March 1914

COUNTRYSIDE CHANGED | WOOD TORN UP FOR GOLF LINKS In that part of the London suburbs between Shirley and Keston ramblers • have long known a countryside—with out saying much about it — which might have been primitive Hampshire or Sussex (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January 10). It has leis urely footpaths, far from the call of motor horns, which range woods where in an hours' walk one may meet none but a few natives about their woodland affairs. But at present a lot of it, instead of resembling more secluded England, looks like nothing so inuoh as a Can adian lumber camp. The saunterer who happens upon it could think him self not two miles only from Croyilon High-street, but among the pioneers who are clearing the wilderness. No less than four square miles of old woodland is being felled. A STROLL INTO CANADA Out of West Wickham Station a "Daily News" rambler found noth ing but a land containing scat tered inns, farms, rooks, and, of course, some concentrated golfers. All el...

The late Mr Justin M'Carthy once described, in an article In "The New York Outlook," the impression made by Mr Joseph Chamberlain's first speech in the House of Commons. The Tories, he wrote, were expecting to see a rough and shaggy man, dressed with an un couth disregard for the ways of society, a sort of Birmingham Orson who would probably scowl fiercely at his opponents and would deliver his opinions in tones cf thunder. The man who rose to ad dress the House was a pale, slender, delicate-looking and closely-shaven per sonage, very neatly dressed, with short and carofully-brushed hair, and wear ing a dainty eyeglass.
