Traveller. ENGLISH LIFE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

Traveller, ENGLISH LIFE IN JAPAN. I p¥(J£OKOHAMA. is the moBt important SArs. treaty-port in Japan, numbering more Europeans than any other town in 'tbe Mikado's Empire.' It may be taken to represent any other European settlement in Japan, the life at all being much the same. About fifteen hundred foreigners reside there, without the slightest friction, on perfectly good and friendly terms, forming a society of their own, living on land specially set apart for them by the Japanese. It is quite a cosmopolitan settlement, but Eng lish tone and influence greatly pre dominate. Next come the Americans, then Germans ; while Portuguese, French, a few Austrians, Belpians, Parsees, and other very occasional nationalities, with a large colony of Chinese, living quite to themselves, and differing very much from both Japanese and foreigners, help to make up the settlement. Foreigners live well in Japan, not on rice and fish, as many outsiders seem to imagine, but find no. stint of good, sub sta...

A MIRACLE OF SURGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

A MIEACLE OF SUEGERY. One of the most wonderful surgical operations known to Bcience has been performed upon a San Francisco man. It consists in the ceiling of fifteen yards of fine silver wire within the aorta, the great aTteTy leading from the heart. Three or four months ago, from the result of an injury;, tne man was in very grave danger of a rupture of the aorta, which, of course, meant instant death. The physicians therefore coiled this wire within a dis tended portion of the great artery in order to partly fill it and form a clot that would, it was hoped, contract the channel to its normal sizu. When the peculiar construction and functions ef the aorta are taken into consideration, it will be seen that this experiment was one of the boldest strokes in medical history. If it proves a complete success, a most signal triumph in the treatment of arterial troubles has been achieved.

Sir Bichai-d began his career in India, where he quickly rose te the top, being chief Commissioner of the Central Provinoes, Foreign Secretary to the Government of India, Financial Minister, Lieutenant Governor or Bengal, and Governor of Bombay. Returning to England 1880, he did much good 'service on the London Sohool Beard, and in Parliament, which latter he left in 1885. He was a man whom 'PancV delighted to honour in its cartoons, his crooked figure, and fierce tangled moustaches giving great scope to the carioaturist. There is a long list of publications to his name in the British Museum catalogue. Oxford, Cambridge, and Montreal Universities gave him de grees, and the Boyal Society elected him a Fellow.

POETRY BROKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

POETRY BROKEN. Will it ever oome back, the old sweet thought, That sever a whisper of sorrow brought P The old dear love that no cloud could dim P The tender warmth of a fire within f The light from no sun or earth lamp lent P The music born of no instrument P Will it ever come back the dear lost thing ? Can nobody patch op this broken string P There are chords once broken no hand can mend ; Strong chords that snap where they can not bend. We may patch the rent with our heart's laat creed ; 'Twill answer no longer our spirits' need ; No longer vibrate as at love's own touch, Love answering love with a swift glad rush Of joy, that no fate could spoil or crush. Yet a word may break what not death could sever, And trust once broken is broken for ever. L. Habvet,

TEN THOUSAND POUNDS FOR A BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

TEN THOUSAND POUNDS FOR A BOOK. This sum (£10,000) was paid by its owner; the German Government, and the book is a missal, formerly given by Pope Leo X. to King Henry Yin. of England, along with a parchment conferring on that sovereign the right ef assuming the title of ' Defender of the Faith,' borne ever since by English kings. Charles II. made a present of the missal to the anoestors ot the tamons Duke ot Hamilton, whese extensive and valuable library was sold some years ago by Messrs. Sotheby, Wilkinson, and Hedge. The book which secured the highest offer was a Hebrew Bible, in the possession of the Vatican. In 1612 the Jews of Venice proposed to Pope Julius II. to buy the Bible, and to pay for its wight in gold. It was so heavy that it required two men to carry it. Indeed, it weighed 3251b., thus repre senting the value of half a million of £20,000). Though being muoh pressed for money, in order to keep up the ' Holy League' against King Louis XII. of France, Julius II. decline...

CRIMINALS AND THEIR WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

CRIMINALS AND THEIE WAYS. There are few men, perhapB, in England who have made a closer study of criminals and prisons than Mr William Tallack, the well-known secretary of the Howard Association. Mr Tallack has visited prisons in many parts of the world, and his experience in this respect is almost unique. In reply to my question, ' Is crime re munerative P' Mr Tallack said : — ' No doubt it is in many cases, but un fortunately as a rule the swindling financiers who carry on their depredations upon a big scale and net a much larger inceme than the vulvar thief, rarely see the inside of a prison. The ' earnings ' of a professional thief are precarious. Some times he may have to wait for weeks for an opportunity to steal a £10 note, but when he accomplishes a successful theft — which may be dene in a few minutes — he has sufficient to keep bim ia compara tive comfort for a month or more. ' My experience is that the professional thieves are extremely lazy individuals. Some of them boas...

Ways of Living. REMARKABLE WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902

Ways of Living. BEMABKABLE WEDDINGS. SgSJTfOME people seem to consider the ordinary method of getting mar atcWf ried too prosaio nowadays, and consequently we are always hear ing of weddings celebrated in queer placeB. Indeed, it would seem that the sacred service has been performed in every place imaginable — on board a vessel, out in the open field, while wed dings in balloons are by no means rare. But of all places where the nervous bride groom and the blushing bride would elect for that trying ordeal surely the most trying would be the lions' den. Yet quite a number of couples have been united in the bonds of matrimony ia the presenoe of roaring lions. So far as we are able to gather, the first marriage so celebrated took some three years ago at the Zoological Gardens, Boston, U.S.A., when Mr Arthur St. Andrassy and Miss Charlotte Wilberg were duly married in a cage containing two lions— Cleopatra and Cosiar. The marriage caused a great sensation at the time, and was witnessed b...
