STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. Perugia's pretence that he stole the "Gioconda" from the Louvre with a view to restoring sonic of the master pieces carried away by Napoleon is badly chosen (says the Paris correspon dent of "The Daily Telegraph" of De cember 16). He does not seem to know that the "Gioconda" happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that were never in the possession of Italy. It was acquired from the artist by Francois I., King of France. for the sum of 4000 gold ecus, and had been at Fontainebleau and Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre. That Peru gia simply hope to make money out of the theft seems to be proved by the fact that before he carried off the pic ture he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers. Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in his room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December 2S, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the theft,...

DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE One of the loveliest stretches of English scenery within range of Lon don is being robbed of both its beauty and use with such speed and certainty that local feeling is coming to a pitch of high irritation and private pro tests are being made (writes the spe cial correspondent of "The Daily Mail"). The question is much more than local. By the deliberate choice of a new landlord (1) Some land which produced food, both corn and milk, is put out of cul tivation, is from a national point of view made barren. (2) A famous beauty spot is de prived of its native charm and with drawn from the use of the neighbors and a wider public who delighted to walk there. Something has been already heard of the destruction of farms and farm buildings and of the making of a deer forest across the wild and rich stretch of country below Hindhead and be tween Haslenmere and Witley, on the estate recently bought by Lord Pirrie, one of the first Peers created by the present G...

INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. Nobody likes influenza. It has not a friend in the world, and every country tries to make out that the wretched thing is a native of some other country. In Russia it is called Siberian fever, and in Siberia Chinese fever. In France it has been called Spanish catarrh, and Spain throws it back as Russian fever. Dr. Arthur F. Hopkirk gives some interesting lists of the names it has been called in a book on "Influenza." The term influenza came to be genera ally applied in England to the diseasq which was successively known as "the new acquayntance," "the gentle cor, rection," "the now delight," and "the knock-me-down fever" by a mistake. , Eighteenth century Italian writers, says Dr. Ilopkirk, spoke of "una in, fluenza di freddo" (influence of cold); and E-nglish physicians, mistaking the word influenza for the name of the disease itself, used it The same term is. also used in Ger many, where a host of dialect names: still prevail, such as lightning catarrh; ...

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

REARINGi CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately refuses to "thrive" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Daily News" of December 9). From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or reasons can be assigned. Unfortunately the truth more or less generally remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, handicapped by the fact of not thriv ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the child who does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal, natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree-that is, if we give him a chance. But our methods of cloth ing, feeding, and "managing" our off spring detract from the health and joy of life of far too many of them in this generation at least. GOOD AS HIS CHEST A medical inspector of schools told me the other day ...

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. The Staintondale foxhounds have the reputation of being the oldest pack in the country. It is a claim which does not go unchallenged, even in York shire, but it rests on the authentic ground that a charter was granted by the Norman King Stephen in the 12th century to some monks in the monast ery of Staintondale to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on the moors between that place and Scarborough. "I cannot vouch for this remote an tiquity," said Mr Halliday Huggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who, as sec retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). "The farthest we can go back in actual re cords is the memory of an old man of 86, who remembers his grandfaher hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to the beginning of the nineteenth century, and there is a song, written in 1811, which commem morates a famous run of that year, so that the hunt can certainly boast a re spectable age. It is a farmers' hunt first and fore...

BLACK MAGIC WIZARDS PRACTISE TO-DAY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

BLACK MAWilC W\ZARDS PRACTISE TO-DAY Black Blagis is by no means so rare a thing nowadays as the sceptical and liunsulpera.titious would think. "There are people in London to-day who practise witchcraft," declared IMonsilgnor Benson, the well-known Catholic author. to a surprised "Daily News" representative on December 16. "Oddly enough." he went on, "the two persons whom I have in my mind are not women, but a middle-aged man and another male somerwhat younger, so I suppose one should call them wizards, rather than witches." "IN LEAGUE WITH EVIL SPIRITS" "Mediaeval rites." was lMo1i?aignor Benson's brief description of the per formances of these persons-"rites which involve fasting and obscenity. They claim that they are in league with evil spirits, exactly as the old witches (lid. They are well educated; whether they are made or not, or whether they are liars or not, are points on which . would not care to commit myself. But I know they attempt this witchcraft."

That thought touched the sympathetic hearts of many British unpolitical households. "Such a young feller, too." said a dame with a market basket, gazing at the Royal motor car outside the deco rated Town Hall at Twickenham. "It only shows what might happen to any of us.'" F'or otlters there was thle romance of it. No , votider suent a host of young ladies were there when the iunicipal address of welcome was given. It was, as one soulful - girl put it, "like a novel." It was indeed. Dorm Manuel and his bride, it must be said, showed no sign that the dignity of most of thle Royal blood of Europe, wh...

NATIONALISTS AND LORD CROFTON [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

NATIONA-,LISTS AND LOUD CROF TON Much bitterness has been aroused among the branches of the United Irish League and of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in South Roscommon by the terms of the address recently presented by Lord Crofton to Mr Bonar Law in Dublin. It was therein stated that the policy of nationalism, the career of the United Irish League, the character of the An cient Order of Hibernians. and the records of boycotting and intimidation were sufflicient to justify their opposi tion of the Home Rule Bill. At meetings of many branches of the two organisations in the county. Lord Crofton's action has been severely cri ticised. and it is understood that in some cases it was decided not to permit hunting by the Roscommnon harriers (of which Lord Crofton is Master) until an ample apology and withdrawal have been made by his lordship. The resolutions condemning Lord Crofton's action adopted by several branches expressed regret at the neces sity of the members to take such a stepl...

STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFERERS UNABLE TO GET RELIEF [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFEIRERS UNABLE TO GET RELIEF Some thousands of patients with toothache, who as usual went for re lief to the dental hospitals attached to the greater German universities this morning (stated the Berlin corres pondent of "The Daily News" Decem ber 131' had to be turned away, for the dental students throughout Ger many went on strike, and the only people left in attendance were the lecturers and their chief assistants, who were quite unable to handle the large number of patients. The students' strike has been caused by the refusal of the university author ities to grant the title of doctor of dentistry. The only way a student at the Dental High School can obtain a degree is by subsequently taking a philosophy course, which means an extra two years after he has passed the State examination in dentistry. This examination, which does not confer the degree itself, involves ten terms of study, as against the six which suf lice to give a degree in other subjects. Anoth...

KISSES FOR CARPENTIER [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

KISSES FOR CARPENTIER Tihe younger generation of France, the new race which is turning France into one of the keenest sporting coun tries in the world (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Mail," De cember 12). thronged the Gare du Nord to the number of many thou sands to-night to welcome home young Carpentier from his great triumph in London. Hundreds of men had tears of emlo tion running down their faces, and when at last they got to their hero everyone who could kissed his cheek or hand. He was often lost to sight for long seconds under this human flood of friends and admirers, while those who could not reach him shrieked "Vive Carpentier'" until their voices failed. The police were rushed and flung aside, and Carpentier, smiling, but pale with emotion, was carried shoul der high. Eventually the crowd thinned out and Carpentier was able to drive away. The train in which Carpentier trav elled was half an hour late, having been delayed by the demonstrations of welcome to him...

The inci dents related to a "Lloyd's News" re presentative by Mr Watson are fully as startling and unexpected as the amazing defeat of the British cham pion by a young French boxer at the National Sporting Club on Monday. "The recent short-lived contest takes my memory back to what was almost my baptismal fire as a referee in the Irize ring, and at that date the short est light on record. "The two contestants were Raphael and 'Dutchey,' and the fight took place at the Three Colts, Hackney, thirty-six years ago. Less than a single round completed the engagement. 'Dutchey' was the better boxer, and in a rally Raphael fell. As he was rising, and while still on one knee. 'Dutchey' struck hinm, and was disqualified. "Objection was taken to miy...
