WHEN LITERATURE FAILS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 March 1914

\VHEX LITERATURE FAILS "Literature is a failure if it does not bring us a nobler sense of life, a zest ] for the commonwealth mind, a spirit of fraternity towarls the race as a whole," says The Daily Herald.' It is not a thing to keep us proud and apart, to bear us away from our neighbors and their ordeals, but to inspire us with a finer faith in them and in the general destiny."

Atten borough and Company Ltd., pawn brokers and jewellers, to recover a necklace, which had been pawned, or, alternatively, damages for- Its deten tion, before the Lord Chief Justice and ■- special Jury (says "The Dally Mall," November 26). Mr -Shearman, K.C., In opening, stated that not a word could be said against the defendants. The ques tion in the case was who should suffer loss in consequence of the sudden de parture under dramatic circumstances of a man who had obtained jewellery which he had not paid for and had then pawned? The man in question, Mr Lance Campbell, had been connected with some South American company, said counsel. He bought from the plain tiffs and paid for £3000 or £4000 worth of jewellery. He lived in Mount street, Mayfair, and owned a motor car. Up to the time he disappeared the plaintiffs had not the smallest rea son to doubt his honesty. In July, 1912, Mr Campbell saw the rosy pearls...

DRESSED LYING DOWN [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 March 1914

DRESSED LYING DOWN Illusions are born to be destroyed, and last night another one received a death-blow (says tho "Daily Ex press" of January 7). Mr. Loudon Macqueen Douglas, the president of the Scottish Society, in a lecture in Edinburgh on "The Wearing of the Kilt," said that the tartan was not Scottish in its origin at all. "Tile kilt emerged from a confu sion of different types of dress," he said. "The ancient dress of Scotland, particularly In the northern parts of the country, was the breacan telle, or kilted plaid, which consisted of some seven to twelve yards of tartan sewn up the middle so as to form a plaid of double width, varying from four to six yards long by two yards wide. A portion of this length was laid on the ground with tho belt under It, the lower and middle portion being then plaited so as to form a kilt, leav ing a flap at either side. "The Highlander lay down upon this, crossed the right flap, and next placed the left flap over it, and then buckled his belt....

MAN IN THE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 March 1914

MAN IN THE FUTURE "That mail is formed for tlio futuro, that the very structure and shape oj his soul points and urges him onward, is, perhaps, the surest of all pledges about liis future" (writes "J.B." in "The Christian World"). "Our fac ulties will find what they seek, what they seem made for. The eye finds light, the ear finds sound, the hand the thousand things that match its activities. "And man's prophetic element, as it develops, as it clears itself from the falsities which tempt its cruder efforts, as it learns its true nature and its true direction, will become more and more a pointer of the way. "The seer, what is he? Is he not just the man who sees deeper than others, more clearly than others; sees right into the heart of things, into the essential equality of being; one who, from an accurate knowledge of the great spiritual forces at work in the world, can predict how they will act, and what results will comev from this action? This it is which has made the prophets—the...

TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 March 1914

TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE "Since November 15 every tramp and vagabond found wandering In France has been taken into the police stations to be measured and photographed, and sent out with a document giving all particulars regarding their persons end past record," says "The Daily Graphic." "This paper they must produce at any moment for verification. All this Is in accordance with a law passed in 1912 making it compulsory for three classes who habitually use the roads to so re gister themselves. These classes are itinerant dealers and pedlars at fairs and markets and tramps and vaga bonds. "Regarding: the first two classes, the new law is more protective than vexa tious. Though they have to declare themselves, the mere production of their papers will at once show their bona fides, and a number whicli all must carry will allow headquarters to learn at once the history of all the wan dering family. These two classes have to obtain official books containing proofs of their identity, p...
