PAY OF CLERGY PROBLEM FOR RECTOR'S WIFE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

PAY OF CLERGiY PROBLEM FOR RECTOR'S WIFE The Bishop of Salisbury (Dr Ridge way), in a statement on the poverty, of many of the clergy in his diocese, says there are a few parishes-he is thankful that he is not the patron of any of them-in which the incum bent's income is about 30/ a week. The difficulty was aggravated by the fact that nine out of every ten in cumbents who receive these starveling wages were burdened with enormous rectory houses and large gardens, the upjkeep of which required more than the income of the benefices. Shortly after he came to Salisbury the bishop received a letter from a clergyman'S wife, stating that they were obliged to live in an enormous house; they could afford no servants, and she (the clergyman's wife) had to do all the Work of the house; and at the mo ment of writing they had no coals in the house. The question how clergy lived on 30/ a week was dililcult to answer. The responsibility for the condition of affairs rested on the laity. Appealing f...

BIRD WORSHIPPERS DISCOVERIES AMONG AFRICAN TRIBES Mr P. Amaury Talbot, a district Commissioner in Southern Nigeria, and his wife have just made a remark able journey of over 4,300 miles in the Eket district, a country of rivers and creeks, many unexplored, with a popu lation of a "quarter of million Ibibios (says "The Daily Express"). In an interview with Reuter's repre sentative, Mr Talbot says he found customs and ceremonies which appcar to have come down unchanged from the days of the Pharaohs. In some parts the dead are roughly mummified, while underground burial chambers are to be found planned like those rf ancient Egypt. He found also traces of bird worship and witnessed a bird dance never before seen by Europeans. Most of the towns have their sacred pool, inhabited by good or evil spirits, to which in the past countless human victims were sacrificed. On two of these holy waters-the Lake of Life and the neighboring Pool of Hatted and Death-Mr Talbot and Mr Eckin, of the Kwa I...

FOOD IN COFFIN CUSTOMS AT GIPSY BURIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

FOOD IN COFFIN CUSTOMS AT GIPSY BURIAL. Pathetic scenes marked the funeral at Ilford yesterday of Mark Cedre, the child of one of the Russian gipsies who recently settled there (says the "Daily Express" of November 18). The mother became frantic when she saw the body in the mortuary, and had to be removed by force. All the way across the cemetery to the grave she cried continuously, "My son, my son." At the graveside she struggled so fiercely with the friends who were holding her that she nearly slipped into the grave. Curious customs were observed at the burial. The child was dressed in his best clothes, with a new red hat and shoes of the same color to match, the latter being beautifully embroldered and or namented with brightly-colored beads. Each mourner placed silver and cop per coins in the coffin, and the father put some bread and meat with the money. The father ceremoniously pouired some claret over the coffin before it was lowered into the grave. Afterwards some more of the...

mR1 LARKIN JEERS STRIKERS READY TO STARVE ir Larkin, in a speech at Cardiff yesterday (says "The Daily Express' on December 24), scoffed at Lord Aber deen, whom he described as the "head of the Dulbin Castle clique," He said: -We have at the head of the Castle clique the Earl of Aberdeen, and his good lady, who get £25,000 a year, and who have no children to keep, so far I know. Their only function, so far as I can gather, is calling meetings and having exhibitions. At the exhibitions they have lecturers, who are paid fire and ten guineas, to show how to feed a family of seven on eight and a tanner a week. We have 404 employers in the city who have signed an agreement to lock out and starve any who wish to belong td, or who associate with, the. Irish Transport Workers' Union.

SOUTH AFRICAN STRIIKE. 'REIGN OF TERROR PICTURED. SYNDICALIST CONSPIRACY. DIANGEROUS REVOLUTIONARIES. L-tAPETOWN, Thursday. Intense interest was taken in the speech delivered by General Smuts in the Union Assembly. He drew a gra phic picture of the reign of terror that prevailed on the Rand, where scabs were subjected to the grossest brutality Anarchy was so rampant that civilians dare not assist the authorities with in formation. He ridiculed the Labor talk of constitutional methods. Events since July necessitated mobilisation of troops. It was no ordinary strike, but a syndicalist conspiracy. Foiled in July, the leaders determined to make a new effort. But for the Imperial troops in July the country would have been in a terrible position. They could never be sufficiently grateful for their help. Mr Smuts quoted from speeches by the Labor leaders to show that they were revolutionaries of the most dangerous type. He taunted the Labor members with being mere preach ers, leading their...

CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

CRIME IN BURIA THREE CAUSES STATED. Gloomy reports of crime continue to come from India (says the "Westmin ster Gazette" of November .S). The judges of the Chief Court of Lower Burma, in a review of the past year's criminal justice, say they regret that the prevalence of crime in the Lower Province is an "even more seri ous feature of the administration than it was in 1911," and cannot regard with equanimity the continuous increase in the number of reported cases of of fences. They feel, however, that none of the remedies which have been suggested wholly reach to the root of the disease. The causes of crime are mainly three poverty, disease, and low vitality, and defective. moral education. In last year's-report the judges indi cated their opinion that the moral sense of the people was diminishing with the slackening of religious ties and obser vances, that with the decay of ancient beliefs the Buddhist religion is losing its moral sanction as an inspiring force in the lives of its ...

FIRE OFF MOYSTON ROAD. FIVE ROOMED COTTAGE TOTALLY DESTROYED. - At about ten minutes to four o'clock yesterday afternoon, the firebell at the central station sounded an alarm, whicn was immediately taken up by the bell at the out-station.
