BERNHARDT HONORED [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

BERNHARDT HONORED Mme. Sarah Bernhardt is a Knight of the Legion or Honor (says "The Daily Express" of January 16). The news was telephoned to her last night while she was resting between two acts of M. Tristan Bernard's play, "Jeanne Dore." It became known in the theatre before' the play was over, and when the curtain fell the audience remained in the theatre and gave the new Knight of the Legion a rousing ovation. Then the company collected round the great actress, and she was the re cipient of a touching attention. In anticipation of the event the mem bers of the company had bought a Cross of the Legion of Honor set in brilliants to be ready to pin it on Mme. Bernhardt's breast as soon as she had the right to wear it. It was two in the morning before the new "Chevalier" got home, and when she arrived she found 50 or more of her friends waiting to congratulate her, and the whole house heaped up with flowers from friends who had not been able to come. To-day she received so many te...

SCHOOL CHILDREN'S HEALTH MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

SCHOOL CHILDREN'S HEALTH MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT The annual report, for 1912. of the iChief Medical Officer of the Board of Education, contains (says "Public Opinion"), an exhaustive account of the measures which are being taken throughout the country to safeguard the health of school children. Alto gether there are 1111 medical officers in the school service in England and Wales, as compared with 943 in 1911; S2 are women and there are 742 nurses also engaged. The Chief Medical Officer, Sir George Newman, states that it is un fortunately true that uncleanliness still occupies a large share of the time, thought, and energy of the offi cers of the school medical service, though it is encouraging to note that throughout the country the returns show a decided and progressive im provement, and that the grosser forms of uncleanliness are now rare as com pared with the conditions that pre vailed when medical inspection was instituted in 190S. Many of the medical officers' re ports draw a...

HIGHWAY ROBBERY GEM MERCHANT'S LOSS A robbery of a particularly auda cious character was perpetrated on a Hatton-garden gem merchant on Thursday night (says "The Daily Tele graph" of June 3). The sufferer was Mr Morris Phillips, who carries on business in Charles-street, Hatton Gar den, and resides in Petherton-road, Canonbury. On Thursday evening, when he left his place of business, he had about him a considerable quan - tity of jewels, which he had been com missioned to sell, and in a leather bag strapped to his right wrist a further quantity of precious stones belonging to himself, valued at about £400. These consisted of 800 carats of Indian sap phires, 400 carats of opals, and 107 pieces of turquoises.

BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS Those who attended yesterday morn ing's sitting, at the St. Paul's "Girl's School, Hammersmith, of the Vacation Conference on Musical Education (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 8), saw and heard a remarkable demon stration. It was given by a group of boy and girl pupils from the Royal Normal College for the Blind, under ! the direction of Mr Horace Watling, one | • of the .professors, himself deprived of sight, at that famous institution. Primarily, the performance of these blind juveniles was intended to illus trate a lecture by Miss Nancy Gilford on "The Creative Faculty in the Pupil: How to Make Use of it as a Valuable lAgent in Teaching." Certainly, the demonstration achieved that purpose, but it did much more. It showed the marvellous Intensification, as it were, of the faculty of hearing, and the ex treme sensitiveness to niceties of rhythm and to tonal distinctions that seem tc compensate many of those born blind for their lack of v...

CHAPTER III. The Archdeacon. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

OFTAPTFiR TTT The Archdeacon. I. No acquaintance called him "by any other name than the Archdeacon; but dimlv it was remembered by his friends that he'' had been baptised "George." A fat and kindly man he was, who oozed benevolence from every human pore, had a voice which should have come lip from the depths of the sea, and a hand which 'touched all things with gentleness. The friendship between Hugh Don ald and the Archdeacon was of old standing. Hugh remembered the ami able el-eric at Aberfeldy almost as 'ons as he could remember anything at all. The truth was that the Very Rev George Hedges fished both for the souls of men and the 'bodies of salmon, and was almost equally suc cessful at either vocation. To him, Hugh Donald was as his own son— and iu this light he thought of him as he sat upon the bridge deck of the yacht Christabel that sunny after noon and listened to the golfers' 'bab ble. ^ A woman! The Archdeacon prick ed up his ears at such talk. "Has he known her long.' Did...

Don't Ncglcct. A COMMON CASE OF PILES. It MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS RESULTS. Whfen people generally under stand that all such fatal diseases as Fistula, Ulcer of the Rectum, Fissure, etc., almost invariably be gin in a simple case of Piles, they will learn the wisdom of taking prompt treatment at the first ap pearance of this trouble. Doau's Ointment is unequalled for every form of Piles, Itching, Bleeiing, Protruding and Blind Piles, and hundreds of lives have beeu saved by using this cheap, but effective remedy right at the start, because at such times a singlp pot has often effected a cure, while in the old, deep-seated, chrouic cases several pots are sometimes necessary. Here is a case : — Mr G. V. Williamson, black smith, iate of Mack ay street , Ro chester, and now living at Camper down, says:—"I had Itching Piles for years, and no one who has not been afflicted with this ailment can know the terrible suffering it means.

The question of holding a farmers' ball was discussed, and the matter was referred to the sr.soc'ations. Mr Frankland introduced the ques tion of the pig industry, which was of great importance to settlers, and said that only two buyers appear to be opera ting in the Rochester market. He thought that the auctioneers should he informed that if there was not more fcompetition settlers would send their pigs to other markets. It was finally decided to ask the directors of the Ro chester Co-operative Butter and Canning Factory to make arrangements for truck ing pigs for settlers. Cream carters could ascertain how many pigs each settler would have weekly for trucking. Fail ing this, and if more competition is not available, the auctioneers be informed that settlers would find another market.

A Dry Period. BUT ONLY NORMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

A Dry Period. BUT ONLY NORMAL A dry spell is upon iis, and al ready complaints, and predictions of_ evil to come are heard in the iand to a greater extent than are justi fied by the circumstances. But as was stated to us by one of the oldest, largest and most experienced far mers in the district, "there are some who are never happy without a grievance, and if they not growl at one thing they will at another He added that there was, for the present at least, no inconvenience of consequence to complain of in' the country around Rochester. The driest pans of them, such as the plains to the north west, are now plentifully supplied with channels from which an ample supply of water may be obtained. In the old time it was no unusual thing to see a farmer bring in his load of wheat with a tauk on wheels in its wake. This he filled with water from the Cam paspe and brought home. But now every farmer has good dams, and where these do not suffice they have wells. As a matter" of fact the Austr...

POISONED CAKE EATEN In returning a verdict of "Acciden tal death," after the inquiry at West Ham on Saturday, into the death of Albert Challingsworth, 18 months, who ate a piece of poisoned cake intended for rats, the jury (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), sug gested that the sanitary authority should be informed of the occurrence. They warned the ratcatcher to be more careful how he left his cakes about in future. The baby's parents live in Cleaner road. Custom House, and the mother said that when she took the house about six months ago the place was infested with rats. She complained to the landlord, who sent a ratcatcher to the premises, and for a day or so everything- was quiet. Then she saw a big rat run down the curtain when she came down in the morning. She again complained to the landlord, who sent some men to open the drains. After this the rats "all came in the kitchen," and on January 7 the rat catcher called again.
