TIME'S CHANGES NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

TIME'S ClAN(iES. NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. MIr Athelstan Riley, the well-known Anglican layman, writes a notable let- r ter from the Athenaum Club to "The Guardian" on the new spirit in the Church. I was lunching at the United Univer- c sity Club the other day, when a very I youthful clergyman. in a white tie and I low-cut waistcoat, sat down beside me. I mentally labelled my neighbor as quite obviously an extreme Broad Churchman, a follower, let us say, of the versatile and amusing Dean of Durham. I thought no more about him, and buried myself in my news paper. Presently a young layman, evidently a recent companion at one .r of the universities, sat down at his c table. What was my astonishment to c hear his greeting, "Have you seen I Zanzibar's s"lendid letter?" Now let me point the moral of this i little story. You publish this week a 1 deplorable sermon by the Dean of Norwich on Prayer-book Revision. I I will fasten upon only one sentence, and that shall be one where he doubt less f...

The Northern Counties Educa aS tion ?eague, as reported in "The Man n chester Guardian" for December 11; ex in pressed some concern lest the promised in new education legislation, should fail a to meet the desires of Nonconformists c- upon this point; they expressed a hope id that in "redressing old grievances new ones would not be created by counten ancing the claims to a sectarian right of entry into schools during the period e of compulsory education." ly All of us are desirous of improving 3y primary education in England, and of of ending the deplorable religious difficul ties. These difficulties many besides in Nonconformists believe have been r- largely due to narrowness on the part it of Anglican school managers, but,- on to the other ha...

BRITISH PEARLS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

iBRlITISHI PE'AILS In early times Britain played its part in the production of pearls, and Taci tus refers to British pearls, but calls them dull-colored and dirty brown. Origen, on the contrary, declared that the pearls that came from Britain held the second rank of value: It was not, however, until about the twelfth cen tury that pearls were used in England, when they became conspicuous in Church ornamentation. Henry V'I1. obtained some costly pearls from the monasteries wlichllle plundered.

SHAKESPEARE'S CHAMPION FAMOUS CRITIC SPEAKS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

SHAKESPEARE'S CHAMPION - FAMOUS CRITIC. SPEAKS A few Baconian enthusiasts who ven tured into Caxton Hall last night to hear Dr. George. Brandes, the famous Danish critic, lecture on Shakespeare, had a very poor time of it indeed (says the "Daily Express," November 26). *They found themselves in an almost wholly pro-Shakespearian audience that listened with rapt attention to a eulogy' of their .hero, uttered by one of his most ardent worshippers. Sir Francis Bacon could hope for nothing from such a man. Neither could Air Frank Harris, to whose. anti-Shakespearian attacks Dr. Brandes paid some little attention. Yet the sting of his criticism was les sened by the kindliness of his appear ance. The pro-Baconians may have ex pected a fierce, opponent; lashing out invectives against the Pretender. They found a niild little old gentleman, peer ing over a red baize reading desk that appeared to be too high for him, with a wholly, benevolent aspect and a hand ful of notes. He has a shock of ...

CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

CAUSES OF FATIIUE INTERESTING LIST. Professor William Stirling, of Man chester University, delivering the Lady Priestley Memorial Lecture on "Health, Fatigue, and Repose," said that most of the breakdowns In a man's life were due to himself, either because of ignorance or recklessness, or both. Overwork, without sufficient repair of an organ, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was the primary cause of fatigue. All the or gans of the body could not run at full speed at the same time. Mental fatigue greatly impaired bodily activity, and physical or muscular fatigue had a dis tinct effect on brain activity. The observations of Dr. Leonard Hill on the effects of a liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most important. Somnolence in churches and chapels seemed on occasion to occur at sermon time, but it was not in all cases to be attributed to the sermon. The ex planation lay rather in the badly-venti lated atmosphere, and in the fact that Sunday, though the first day o...

RADIUM AS INVESTMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 February 1914

RADIUM AS INVESTMENT There is no more permanent way in which n oney can he invested than in the purchase of radium, it was stated at a meeting of the governors of the ,Middlescx Hospital. Sir Alfred Pearce Gould, president of the clinical section of the Royal College of Medicine, said that the pur chase of ratdium was not an expendi ture of money, but an investment of money. Radium did not get poorer by giving off Its emanation. There was no more permanent way in which money could be invested than In the purchase of radium. 'As far as the' mind of man could carry itself radium purchased now would he valuable to the end of all time. There was no form of investment, no fund they could put money into, which was so certain to be actually in the possession of the governors of that hospital hundreds of years hence as by the purchase of radium. Prince .Alexander of Teck spoke of the encouraging results obtained at the hospital from the use of radium in the treatment of cancerous diseases. ...
