TURKISH PROBLEMS. A CAREFUL SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 February 1911

TURKISH PROBLEMS. A CAREFUL. SURVEY. By the "Spectator." It has been impossible for many months to disregard the signs that the theory o£ an Ottoman Empire, as dis tinguished from a Turkish Empire, i.° In danger of flnal collapse. The Idea of those who brought the Constitution into being was a line one: Turks, Greeks, Arabs and Jews were to live on terms of equality and amity, loyal to an Em pire which was to be the mother of them all. In Macedonia when the Constitution was proclaimed priests of the Greek Church and the strictest Moslems-men perhaps wearing the green on .their fezes which symbolises descent from tlie'Prophet - were to be seen embrac ing one another in public. The ecstatic vision soon passed. That would not have mattered much; one expects ex tremes of sentiment to be fugitive. But, unfortunately, It is no longer possible to believe that those at the head of af fairs in Turkey are making any serious attempt to realise the theory Of an Ot toman Empire. So far as their ...

HOW NANDI SPEARMEN KILL LIONS. A Battle Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 February 1911

HOW NANDI SPEAEMEN KILL LIONS. A Battle Royal. At last- the tense ring was complete, and tlio spearmen rose and closed in. The lion looked cjuickly from side to side, saw where the line was thinnest, and charged at his top-most speed. The crowded mo ment began. With shields held steady, and quivering spears poised, the men in front braced themselves for the rush and the shock; and from either hand the war riors sprang forward to take their foe in tho flank. Bounding ahead of _ his _feUows, the leader reached throwing distance, the longz-spear flickered and plunged; as the lion felt the wound he half turned, and then flung-himself on the man in front. The warrior threw his spear; it drove deep into the life, for entering at one shoulder, it came out of the opposite flank, near the thigh, a yard of steel through tho great body. Rearing, the lion struck the man, hearing down the shield, his back arched ; and for a moment he slaked his fury with fang and talon. But on the instant I saw ...
