NEVER TOOK MEDICINE ' Until 103 Years Old STILL GOING STRONG AT 110 Until he had passed the age of 103 years, Mr. Joseph Allen Russell, of I.ampasas (Texas) never took a dose of1 medicine or had a doctor. Now, at the age of 110 years, which he Teached: on April 12, he is still en oying good health. ~'He took his second venture into mat rimony when 105 years old, his choice being Mrs. Mary Bowers (56), who diedj two years ago.

POULTRY PERSONALITIES Fown Run Studies [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
POULTRY PERSONALITIES Fown Run Studies An uncommercial poultry expert has discovered that chickens have indivi dualities of their own, and that it is mere foolishness to bulk the mas a mass of unintelligent flesh and feathers. Among my protoges (hIe writes in "The Cape Argus") was an aged Buff Orp ington, whose activities were narrowed down to an egg and a sitting a year. She was a majestically conventional old hen, whose opposition to incubators, brooders and new thought ould be taken for granted. I have met her pro itotype among women. She was what is known in human phraseoology as a born mother, and had many descendants. She died during the year I was in charge, and, in spite of my commercial disinterestedness, no accusation of neglect could be brought against me, natural causes being the verdict. She was given a fine burial and a tombstone, and left behind her a half-grown family, whome she had a few weeks before her .death sternly weaned from the maternal wing. In this growing ...

--- PILOTLESS PLANE Steered By Wireless --~--4- AUTOMATIC AERIAL LOG American air science, after a costly fasciniatinlg quest, actually possesses a tiny, secre.t, potless. aeroplane, with a w'ina span .f 20i ft., driven by ;a motor tf -hiiborspcower, \\which does really and truly tfly itself. This amazing little Ihachitne h:tas, in fact. not onl~' made mauny ascents and descents, pilottess, but has perforrnmed automatic aerialj journeys of more than an hour's dauta tion. The weird machine ha3s a "brain," "nerves," and "muscles.' It is in humanly human. The brain is a gyroscope, or, rathier, two gyroscopes. One balances the plane as it flies. The other, acting as? a mechanical pilot, maintains it on a' given course. Pncumaically-operated i valves and tubes-t-he "nerves" obey ing the gyroscope "brain"-transmit ting energy to tiny, compressed-air motors. These motors are the "muscles," and actuate the controlling surfaces of the aeroplane. Its "brain" functioning precisely, the little ...

FIRPO'S BIG BROBLEM Fierce Fight Predicted [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
FIRPO'S BIG BROBLEM Fierie Fight Predicted (By Our Special Representative.) After his recent displays against the •econrd-raters in America, Luis Firpo, the Argentine giant, has been matched with Jack Dempsey for the heavy ,vcight I.roxing championship of tlhe World. The men will meet in New York on September 12, and it is probable that the cor test will rival that of the Dempsey-Carpentier so far as the gate receipts are concerned. Immediately the cables announced that Tex Richard had matched Luis iFirpo, the Argentine giant, with Jack Dempsey (champion heavyweight boxer of the world) sportsmen throughout the Commncrwealth asked themselves whe ther Firpo was matured enough to wit lstand the onslaughts of the wily Dempsey. There are few in this coun try- conversant with the ability of either man, but American files throw liight on the form of Firp. ]it seems to be the opinion in Australia that the "'ull of tParnD;as"' is just a rushing fighter without any degree of science.

CHINA FOR CHINESE Whites Not Wanted [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
CHINA FOR CHINESE Whites Not Wanted China is no longer a civilisation apart. The reaction of the Great War on in terior China has been long coming, but it is here. Respect for the white man, once held so high by the wondering pea-i sapts qf. Shaitung, has now been! dmragged in the miud of Amiens and! buried in the trenches of the Somme (says "The New York Times"). World! events are having their reaction inl China later than elsewhere, but never-! theless just as acutely. The slowvly, moting giant of theEast has awakened upon a world drenched with blood, and! he has adopted the lessons in violence learned from his white brothers. I The message of the white man,! "'Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men," preached for generations by missiona ries, has suddenly been shorn of its meaning, and become a hollow mock ery. He sees no benefit from a white !nvasion of his counry. He will resist that invasion by the only means practical in the V'est- force. Just as the Boxer re bellion was a reaction...
"BIG BERTHA" MYSTERY A Report Denied [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
"BIG BERTHA" MYSTERY | * ----- --~-- A Report Denied Interest in the origin and fate of the long-range guns, or "Big Berthas," with which the Germans bombarded Paris in the last year of the war, has been reviveo by some striking statements published by "Le Matin" in the forrrm of a letter fromt M. Ernest Gay, a member of the Paris Municipal Council. In this letter M. Gay: flatly contro verts the statements put forward fromn authoritative sources last May. and pulb llished for "The Morning Post," to the effect that all th:at was to be known about these guns is already known. H-e asserts, on the contrary, that not; only has no trace of the Big Berthas been discovered since the Armistice, but that all information published to; the contrary is erroneous. Statements have recently been made that the guns in question were manu factured at the Austrian Skoda Works, where some American officers are re ported to Lave seen some of them in 1918. M.

CREATING "THE BLOKE" Work Of Adelaide Boy "GINGER MICK" AS OFFSIDER [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
ICREATINi "1TE B1LOE" Work Of Adelaide Boy "GINGER MICK" AS OFFSIDER BY "THESPI-AN." Written by a South Australian, it is a curious coincidence that the name part in the play now at til, IToyal should have been created by a South iAustralian - Walter Cornlock, whose father was well known here as director of WVhite's Rooms and Academy of Music, built on the site of tae old ivoli. Possess:ng an intimate knowledge of the type and with years of successful j.tage experience, Cornock was chosen Iby the Carrolls as the ideal man to traiinslate the sentiment lying behind the picturesqueness of "The Bloke." But even although the Carrolls selected him the acceptance was not made in a hurry. I saw a good deal of Cornock during tlhose days when he was making up his mind. His problem was that he was a permanent fixture on the Fuller circuit, and the continuity of the run "The Bloke" might get was an uncertainty. In the end he decided to take the plunge, and, characteristic of the man, he started...

REPERTORY THEATRE Public Support Accorded [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
REPERTORY THEATRE Public Support Accorded Galsworthy's play "Loyalties," pro duced on Saturday night by members of the Repertory Theatre, was accorded encouraging public patronage. In a cast of some twenty characters there are bound to be instances of uneven ness in the work of some, and others again must stand out by reason of their undoubted talent and clever exposi tion of the type indicated by the author. T'o Ray WValsh belongs unqualified Draise for his masterly concettion of the role of Ferdinand de Levis, the nouveau-riche Jew. It was a fine study in that restraint which by its definiteness was emphatic. James An derson, as the conscientious solicitor, Jacob Twisden, gave a, clear-cut inter pretation of dignified geniality and courtesy. It was a cultured effort. William Joyce was successful in the part of the retired General Canyge. He! made his points without effort, and is blessed with a good speaking voice. A clever character study was that of Bert Datsor as Gilman, the ga...
Day By Day [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
Day By Day It is a long time since we have had a really good child impersonator. Thoughts run back to Fanny Powers, of Rickards fame. Little Lorna. now; showin, at the Majestic, has a finish and skill that are out of the ordinary. Only nine years old, she has also a gift for the violin that gives her turn an additional charm. \Vhy is it that comedians off sta.rge are such sad-looking l)persons? Joec Brennan, now at the Majestic, is no exception. Those who remember him during his long run with the Hum phre? Bishop show at the TWinter Gar den st!1l laugh at his Rudolph and hisl st.ory of Mrs. TWinterbottom. During his absence Joe has got hold of many changes, however, and his turn is well up to standard. 'Tfh art of mr0l;ing a trombene tauk is a hard one, but Neil Shaw, of the duo' now at the Majestic. has got it downl to a fine art. I:raddy Shaw has somei clever songs, and the clever English pair are welcome.
ZOOLOGICAL DANCING America's Camel Step [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
ZOOLOGICAL IANCIN6 America's Camel Step It was in Berlin that I met him for the first time, writes Leonard Spray in the London "Daily Chronicle." Chance made him my neighbor, and his native spirit of friendliness brought swift ac quaintance. We found ourselves at the same table in a gilded though decorous establishment known, more or less libel lously, as a "Palais de I)anse.' "Say, boy," he queried, "what do theyl dance in this dive?" Now, I am a child in terpsichorean matters. Fortunately by fatuous mur mur to the effect that they "just dance" was drowned in the opening strains of the orchestra. It was a waltz. Mvy pleasure in watching the couples weaving a maze about the floor was early diverted by a groan from my table companion. "You don't think they'\ve doped our liquor?" he asked fearfully. I reassured him and enquired the1 trouble. "Waal," he answered. "if you tell me these poor prunes are waltzing '11 take your say for it. But looks to me as how they might be doing the Unld...
