ESKIMOS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

ESKIMOS Vilhjalmur Stefansson, who dis covered the white Eskimos, has some very interesting things to say in "Harper's Magazine" about the Christianising of the Eskimos-those of Alaska. News just comes that the explorer's ship, the Karluk, with 25 men, is miss ing, carried away in a storm. He and his companions were exploring a vast arctic continent. The explorer was himself once a Divinity student, and has a keen -in terest in missionary work. He points out the danger of assuming that the Eskimo in religious matters means what we mean. He thinks in: terms of his own knowledge, and not of ours. Among the Eskimos the expression "a wise man," being translated, means "a man who knows a large number of ta boos." He is an honored member of the community always, who knows more than anyone else about the things that ought not to be done. To know these things is very important, for if they be done-if a taboo be broken-no matter how innocently and unknow ingly, the inevitable penalty follows...

SURPRISED INTRUDER [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

SURPRISED INTRUDER What is the best procedure to adopt when in the middle of the night you find a burglar in the bedroom? The answer is to follow the example of Mr and Mrs William Rush, who live in Wycliffe road, Northampton. Their dramatic capture of a suspected bur glar was described at the borough police court on Saturday (says "The Daily Express" of December 8), when a man named David Boyd was committed for trial. At 4 o'clock in the morning Mrs Rush awakened from her sleep, and saw a man moving about the room. With re markable presence of mind she quietly nudged her husband, and whispered to him that a man was in the room. .lr Rush, collecting his wits, waited his opportunity, and presently leapt on the intruder, and knocked him down. A fierce struggle followed, and the stranger broke away, and bolted from the room. In hurrying downstairs, however, he stumbled, and fell. Mr Rush attacked him again, and this time secured him. Mrs Rush pluckily held the man while her husband dres...

PROFITABLE DEAL [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

PROFITABLE REAL How great are the profits made by lucky art deals was shown in the hear ing of a case in the King's Bench Division (says "Lloyd's Weekly" of November 30). Mr. Dyson Lister, picture dealer, of Royal parade, Harrogate, sued Mr. H. Silva White, also a picture dealer, of St. James's, London, W., to recover £100, money received. His case was that he purchased a pastel by John Russell, R.A., of "Air. and Mrs. Moses Agar and Family," painted about 1800, from a Mr. Henry Agar for £150. Mr. White.. undertook to dispose of the pic ture, and It was sold to Mr. Asher Wertheimer, of Bond street, for £1500, the negotiations being conducted by a Mr. Arthurton. Mr. Lister was paid £1400, and he now .claimed the bal ance. He paid Mr. White £100 as com mission on the sale. Mr. White counterclaimed for a suin of money, on the ground that Mr. Lister agreed to pay him half. the profits on the sale of the pastel. - His lordship found for MAr. Lister on the claim and counterclaim.

FISHERMAN'S FANCY [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

FISHEMIAN'S FANCY By Horace Hutchinson in "The -West minster Gazette." A pleasant tale is related of an inge nious gentlenian who endeavored to take advantage, for the more success ful catching of the shy trout in a cer tain well-known chalk-stream, of the familiarity which the fish acquire with a human figure that they often see be side the river, and that Is associated with agreeable- sensations, such as the sensation of dining well. Possibly the very fact of this famili arity is not generally known; but it is a-fact that is not to be doubted, for it has been proved again and again, and may be confirmed by a visit to the nearest fish hatchery; that trout in the nursery know perfectly the man, or the men, who feed them. They will come right up to the surface, playing about, expectant of food, when these friendly figures are iN the bank. On the other hand, if it be a stranger that approaches, they make off at once into their hiding-places. Nor does it suffice for them that the stran...

COMMONWEALTH TRADE NOT LANGUISHING, BUT MIGHT BE LARGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

COM1IIONWEALTH TRADE NOT LANGUISHING. BUT MIGHT BE LARGER. The growth of Australia's trade with - the world at large and the United Kingdom in particular has undoubtedly been promoted by the Australasian Chamber of Commerce in London which, as it happens, held its twelfth annual general meeting yesterday (says "The Financial News" December. 18S). The president of this body is no other than the present High Commis sioner for the Commonwealth (Sir George Reid), while the chairman is Sir John Cockburn, who is as much at home in the Motherland as in Australia herself. The report then presented has raised some points of great interest both to Australia's primary producers and to consumers ill this country. It is need less to Insist on the importance, from an Imperial point of view, of the trade in Australasian frozen meat. With an ever-growing industrial population and S a home meat supply incapable of in definite expansion, it Is of the utmost moment to the workers of this country that ...

Goodhprogres continuies to be m.:de in -the intermediary drive being push ed in fromthe rise in .tne.New Langi Logan Company's mine, and last night the wash was only six inches over tae back of the laths. Water came in pretty freely, but it is quite clear, and the ground is firm and everything per fectly safe. It may be expected that it will now only be a matter of a few feet before the wash is down in the drive. 'ne drive is still in first-class country-a nice mild green reef, inter sected by quartz leaders, and the pres. sure in- the bores was down to 19 pounds when taken yesterday.. There should consequently be no great diffi cilty 'in- entering the wash. Whilst water is comipg in in the drive it has diminished in the bores, for tae pumps are not running any quicker.

WOMEN AND CHILD WORKERS FACTS REVEALED BY CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

WOilEN AND CHILD. WORKERS FACTS REVEALED BY CENSUS. An extraordinary Blue Book in con nection with the Census of 1911 was issued yesterday (says "The Daily News of December 18). It runs to nearly 800 pages, and gives but one table, and that in condensed form! This is the table of occupations, and study of the huge volume of figures is really fascinating. Thus, to summarise, there are in England and Wales 11,453,665 males and 4,830,734 females engaged in occupations. Of the women 3,739,532 are unmarried, 680,191 are wives, and 411,011 are widowed.
