A SMALL BOY'S MISADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

4 SMALL BOY'S MISADVENTURE. A comic adventure, that might have had a tragic finale, once hap pened in a French theatre at Hheims. During the second pio;e an inquisi tive boy—who, apparently,, h:td not the means even to procure entrance w tho "paradiB," or upper gallery— bad somehow got upon the ro"f, and, crawling through the aperti.re, was intently surveying the houao. Sud denly—cariosity Icing stronger than prudence—he tnade a false move and fell upon the chandelier, to which he managed to cling, scattering as he lid so the glass pendants in all di rections, and considerably frighten ing tho audience. great hubbub ensued, in the midst of which the gaa was put out. the chandelier was drawn '.ip, and the adventurous imp, somewhat cut and bruised, rescued from his perilous position.

THK INCOME TAX IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

THK INCOME TAX IN ENGLAND. That darling of the Chancellor ol the Exchequer's heart, the incomt tux, was introduced in its modern form by William Pitt in 179S In or der to raise the necessary mon«y for prosecuting the war with France. Four years later It was repealed, to be succeeded in 1S03 by a property tax. After Napoleon had been squashed in 1816 this also was withdrawn. Then ensued a golden era of 26 fears. The jrolden age came to an end Inever to return, we fear) when, in 1S42, Sir Robert Peel started the concern once more at sevenpence to the pound. In 1S53 it stood at eiRhtpencc. In :hat year the privilege of paying tha tax was also extended to Ireland. As miRht be expected, on the out jreak of the Crimean War it made a Jump to one shilling and twopence, &nd subsequently to one shilling and fourpence. When the war was ended the tax ras apain lowered, and during the fndian Mutiny it stood at fivepence In tbe pound.— "Liverpool Post."

HURT BY KINDNESS. 7 LINES BROUGHT 200 LETTERS. Australian Soldier's Experience in London. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

HURT BY KINDNESS. 7 LINES BROUGHT 200 LETTERS. Australian Soldier's Experience in London. In the Bolingbroke Hospital. Wands worth, S.W., lies a young Australian soldier who is the most embarrassed man in London and one of the most modest. Three days ago he was buf fering only from the eftecis of in fluenza and mumps; to-day he is suf fering from too much kindness and a feeling of false pretences. It came about in this way. On Friday last week seven lines appeared in a daily paper stating that Private C. E. Jenkinson, of the 2nd Australian Light Horse, invalided from the Dardanelles, was lying wounded and lonely, having lost the addresses of his relatives in England. The friend who sent these particulars mentioned that one relative was an uncle who lived somewhere in Lon don. The uncle, who is a consulting en gineer in the north of Loudon, saw the paragraph on Friday morning, and, after making inquiries at the hos pital by telegram, visited his nephew the same day, to the. delight o...

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, September 18. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, September IS. London has had a period of very un usual interest and excitement. There was a Zeppelin attack in the London district on 'Wednesday night last. More than that I am not allowed to say, for the censorship regulations do not permit the publication of informa tion which can in any way help the enemy. 1 may, perhaps, however, be allowed to add without any breach of regulations that the effect of the raid on the spirit and temper of the peo ple lias been like a strong tonic. "This will stir up all England," said one young fellow as he stood at a spot in the London district, looking at some damage done. All England. 1 may be told, ought not to require such events to stii it up. L*ut war at a distance is one thing; war over our very heads is quite another. Insularity no longer gives the protection it once did. New world conditions have arisen in which those who have will be made to prove that thev can hold, or else will find what they hav...

RED INDIANS ON TUB PRAIRIE When the Kansas 1'iiciiie Huilwa;, was first openud the Indians were very hostile, and there nas con.stiint fear that they would wreck the trains and that they did not i.'i due to thcii ignorance of the iron horse and ol the best methods of destroying it.

They were never satisfied with simp ly cutting the wire, hut chopped it into pieces with their tomahawks tc effectually stop the mysterious mes sages.

GORDON'S ROSE-TREE AT KHARTUM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

GORDON'S ROSE-TREE AT KHARTUM. Of the actual work of Gordon's bands, there remains but a rose-bush in the palace garden, which, hewn down by the malice of his enemies, sprang to ltte again with the coming of spring. It is aflectionately tended by an old Soudanese sergeant, who was one of Gordon's men, and stands in t!ie midst of nn earthly paradise. In that indulgent climate on the banks of the dark river which carries down from the cornucopia of Abyssinia the water which fertilises Epypt the growth of garden* is tropically exuberant. This roie-tree was found blooming beside the ruins when, on the second day after Its red victory at Omdurman, a British army—horse, foot, and artillery—was drawn up, in full pomp of war, beside the last earthly habitation of Charles George Gordon, to give him, in the religions of the three kingdoms, the most solemn funeral service ever read over a general killed in battle, with one of bis own old gunboats Bring the tolling minute-guns.

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. * 8P0RT THAT KILLS. The raw native* ot South Africa have not yet taken op football and cricket as national sports, so they still indulge is tta* sport ot their forefathers. Recently, in a mining town in tho Orange River Colony, a sports day of rather hoc* proportions was held. It took the form of a fight between natives called Mxosas, who hail from Cape Colony, and Bnsutos, from the Orange River Oolony and Natal bor ders. Both are really members ol the Bantu racc. Altogether, 1,200 "hoys" took part, in the sport. And, although it consisted principally oi running alter each other in approved London school-fight fashion, still, the opposing sides came to close quar ters on several occasions. They were armed with weighty stickB, and it speaks well (or the thic! ncss of the native skull when I mention that only one death occurred.

Care of Chickens. Tho Need for Fresh Air. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

Care of Chickens. Tho Nood for Fresh Air. It is one thing to hatch chichens.. but another to rear them ; greater skill is necessary to rear theni than to hatch. Chickens are susceptible to changes uufelt by other animals, and a fairly uniform temperature is absolutely indispensable ; at the same time, coddling them too much is productive of trouble. Pure air will do more to lower the mortality experienced in rearing chickens under poultry farming conditions than anything else, but this fact is apparently too simple to be ap preciated at its true value by some operators, and the tendency is to look for disease instead of faulty conditions as the source of trouble. The poultry expert, emphasises the fact that close, stuffy brooders quite deprive the - chickens of oxygen. Deficiency iti this vital element means stunted growth, and weedy and ill-conditioned chickens, which lack the robust constitution necessary to enable them to lesist disease, and to become thrifty birds that respond t...

COMMENTS ON CUR RENT EVENTS. By Grader. So Mr Hughes would cheerfully con sign the askers of ridiculous or em barrassing questions to the bottomless bag. When he made that reply to Mr Fenton, of course he didn't mean the bottomless pit. Mr Hughes couldn't, nor, indeed, wouldn't, even if he could, use language that a strict moralist might not approve of, nor a phrase that the severely critical might be inclined to interpret to his disadvantage. And although it is on record that he once — and only once—in Parliament assembled did use a word more popular for the pulpit than fur the forum, yet it must be remembered for him that he was at the time very angry, and simply " couldn't help it." Kesides, he wasn't then I'rime Minister. lie now has a great dignity to uphold.
