GLIIMAN INTRIGUES IN MOROCC0. FAILURE OF THE "HOLY WAR." Mr. H. Warner Allen, special cor respondent of the British Press with the Frenin armies, Wirites on Feb Sruary 23. with reference to the posi tion of affairs in Morocco, that long before August, 1914.

BULL REVIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

BULL REVIVER. John's wife was a confirmed in valid, and could not walk, so John who proved himself a thoug'htfui and loving husband, used to take, her out every day in a bath-chair. In one of his walks he had to go through a field in which was a young bull. John had not noticed the bull when~he first entered, but no sooner did the bull see him than he tossed up his head and came charging right straight for him. All John's courage forsook him. He fled, leaving the bath-chair and" his wife behind him. As he went he could hear a great puffing and blow ing not far behind him. He thought he would never reach the gate in time to escape. Ah ! there it was. If he could only get over it. He glanced over his shoulder to. see how far the .bull was behind, and' then he stopped short in utter con sternation, to find that he had been, running away from his wife. all the time, and that the bull, a good dis tance off, was trying. to see what the bath-chair was made of. "Why," he cried in the greate...

AMERICA AND THE DANISH WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

AMERICA AND THE DANISH WEST INDIES. Amid the roar of battle and the clash of armies in Europe, the nego tiation of the sale of the Danish W\Test Indies to the United States seems a very petty affair; but that seeming is exceedingly deceptive. The root of the matter lies in the American "Monroe doctirine"-the determined policy of the United States that no European Power shall interfere with any country, or island. or republic in North or South America. Long before now, Germany's - persistent attempts to secure a foothold in South America ---in Venezuela and San Domingo- would have brought about war be tvreen the United States and 'Ger many vat for the ever-guarding shadow of the British Navy.

TAXES ON TITLES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

TAXES ON TITLES. Certainly the pwssessiofi or tl'e' acquiring of a title must be regard ed as essentially a "luxury," and there is some plausibility in thi re cent ingenious plea for sethig a definite price on the .right to be called My Lord and My Lady. At the same time we should temem ber that there are Peers and Peers ; some barely able. to main tain an outward decent appearance. It, would not be a bad idea to im pose 'a considerable tax on all titles bestowed for political reasons dur-' ing the last twenty years-bringing both sides into the net. It Would be a hardship to tax retired "dips" with titles de circonstance, hard worked civil, servants,Indian officials, army and navy men, and professors. The great lawyers and doctors have ample wealth and the "opportunity toikreate it, and they' might reasnn ably contribute to the war in this way. : There is certainly s:'mething attractive in the ' idea; of the open purchase, of titles 'during, and for, the war.

A JOURNAL'S CIPHER CODE [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

,A OU8tAL'S1IPHER CODE Sik:lgmens was delivered in the G'aggow' Sheriff Court, on 'December 8, in the case under the Defence of the Realm Act, in which the Glas gow "DAily Record," and Mr. James Lumsden, editor of the paper, were charged with using, or having in their possession, a cipher code for secretly communicating naval or military' information. His 'Lordship recalled " that the Solicitor-General. in closing his case, had said that the evidence did not* warrant him in asking for a conviction against the respondents for using the " secret code. The Solicitor-General also admitted that he did not make .any suggestipn against the respondents of deliber ately doing anything that would in-. lure the country in this time of war. His Lordship agreed with these views. He also found that Mr. Lumsden had given the detectives every facility when making their search for the code. The probability was that by that time, August 1915. the editor had forgotten about the code, which was prepare...

FIGHTING CONSUMPTION A CAMPAIGN FAVOURED. The ravages of tuberculosis and its effect on the health and vitality of -the community are dealt with in a long report presented recently to Parliament by the Federal Com mittee investigating The causes of death and invalidity.

Of invalid pensions paid to persons under 40 years of age 24.5 per cent. are due to tubercle in various forms. Victoria has the highest rates, but is showing a progressive improve bilent. 'There has been great pro gress in the metrop litan districts of New South Wales, but very little in recent years irn the remainder of the .State.

TRANS-AUSTRALIAN RAILWAY QUESTION OF HOLIDAY PAY. DEPUTATION TO SENATOR LYNCH. Perth, Jan. 2. A deputation from the West Aus tralian branch of the Australian Workers' Union consistin of Mr. M. Costello and Mr. A. f. Watts, waited upon the Federal Minister for Railways and Works, Senator Lynch, to-day, to urge that pay ment should be made forthwith in respect to Christmas and New Year hohdays to those of the men on the trans-Australian railway who had worked up to that period, and were put off indefinitely .on ac count of the cessation of operations consequent upon the shortage of rails. The deputation quoted cor respondence on the question, and held that it was not altogether fair to hold over the men's holiday pay in view of the fact that last year, In what was regarded by the deputa tion as a similar set of circum stances, the men were paid in re spect to such period before they resu ed work.

HEAT AND COLD [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

HEAT AND COLD There is a very common idea that one of the secrets of maintaining good health lies in the avoidance of variations of temperature. It seems likely that this is altogether a fal lacy. For one thing, at is an ex perience which is impossible of ab solute verification or disproof. What would happen to a human being literally and continuously kept at a uniform temperature day and night, winter and summer, it is impossible to say with certainty. But this we may say, that people who havet so far is possible, avoided variations of temperature are generally least able to resist the effects of those changes of temperature which are absolutely unavoidable in normal human life, when they actually ar rive. The over-coddled and pamn pered child is notoriously the first to catch a cold, just as the plant which has been kept for months in the uniform temperature of a warm greenhouse is the first to succumb when placed in the open air. As a matter of fact, the body is provided with an ...

The deceased' gentleman early in the week had a recurrence of an old internal trouble, which prevented him from attending business, but it was thought that with rest and attention he would recover.
