This was resented by the peo ple of Zabern, and a series of inci dents followed, culminating on Fri day last in an outbreak by the mili tary and the arrest of twenty-six citi zens.

AFRICAN KING DEAD [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914

AFRICAN KING DEAD « i It may be assumed with some confi dence that the persistent rumors of Menelek's death which have been cir culated periodically since his paralytic seizure In 1908 are, on this occasion, well founded, says "The Times." Tho extent of the change in Abyssinian and North-East African politics involved by his death cannot yet be appraised. Menelek has been dead to the outer world and possibly even to Abyssinia for some years. His stripling grand son and heir, Lidj Yasou, is little known, and has still to prove his ability to cope with the peculiar prob lems of Abyssinian statecraft. During Menelek's reign of 20 years the extremely primitive civilisation of Abyssinia has been overlaid with a "Western veneer, though it has not lost Its original characteristics. The coun try has telegraphs and telephones, and a railway, which stops short at a point near Harrar. it has a limited but in creasing trade in >vhich India shares. The main industries of Abyssinia are, howeve...

FIRE EXTINGUISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914

FIRE EXTINGUISHED. On Wednesday afternoon Mr G. E. Dodd, of Macpherson St, noticed a local young man put a lighted match to a cig arette, and then throw the match down on the grass on the vacant allotment next to the Lowan Hall. The careless smoker walked on and did not observe that the lighted match he threw away started a grass fire on the allotment mentioned. Mr Dodd hurried to the scene and extinguished the fire before it had spread to any degree. If the fire had got away serious consequences would have resulted, as tho hall and other wood en buildings adjoin tho allotmont which is woll covered with dry grass.

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914

FACT ABOUT »riSTI/ETOT! A singular thing concerning mistle toe, called attention to by "The Gar den," is that, although it occurs on a wide range of trees and is so very common on the apple, yet it is never found on the pear. Some attempts to grow mistletoes on pear trees were made last year in Messrs James Veitch and Sons' nursery at Langley, and the results' were so remarkable that the subject has since been brought before the scientific committee of the Royal Horticultural Society. ' Mistletoe seed was sown on a number of pear trees,' and in many instances germination took place. In no case, however, did the mistletoe get beyond the stage of germination, and no leaves wpre de veloped. The effect upon the pear was very noticeable, for the mistletoe, in its attempt to establish itself, killed all the tissue of the tree-stem just within the bark, completely encirc ling the stem. All growth was killed above the point where the mistletoe had germinated.

SHORT SENTENCES BILL. TO DIMINISH TH15M. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma l gistrates' Club (says 'The Daily News" of December 5). Mr M'Kenna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. j He expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with I the approval of both recognised par ties, but even with the approval of the i recognised cranks. (Laughter). They ' hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to deduce the num ber of prisoners. "We hope," he continued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should be avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to the victim of them, and they don't protect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline and the conditions of work which he would learn—useful work woul...
