TALLANGATTA SCHOOL COMMITTEE TRIENNIAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 March 1914

TALLANGATTA SCHOOL COMMITTEE TRIENNIAL REPORT. We have pleasure in submitting, on behalf of the Committee, a report of three years' work. We wish first to state that our relations with pupils, inspector, teaching staff and Department have been most harmonious. We have all had but one aim in view—forwarding the best interests of the childron. So much has been done that we find it difficult to give a detailed statement. The public has helped us in every way. At the lowest estimate, during the past six years (thus including the work under the old School Help Committeo) nearly £400 has been spent on the school buildings, grounds and children-the result of local effort. THE BUILDING. The building is out of date, ill-venti- lated, badly seated, and altogether too small. Three years ago the Committee wished to take action; but the head teacher pleaded that the time was in- opportune, and urged the use of the old school, and the building of an open-air pavilion to tide matters over until th...

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 26 March 1914

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. Tile deposition of the mad kind, Otto of Bavaria, which has just been deci ded, recalls to the minds of all music lovers aie genius of the greatest mo dern composer, Richard Wagner. For it was King Litdwig, the brother of the poor madman, 'who befriended Wagner in the days of his greatest poverty, and whose patronage enabled him to ■produce his immortal works. King Ot to himself uas a friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," "Tannhausc-r," and the other master pieces of his "Niebelungenlied," are now popular throughout the world. But when he produced tliem they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm of ridicule and contempt. He wrote some of them in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time. They reflect the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter "but they reveal also, the nobility and idealism and tenderness whic...

FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 26 March 1914

It is said that when it ibecame known that the letters of the great Irish I eider, Charles Stewart Parnell, were tc be published, offers to pur chase tiem were received from all over thj world, and that one great nowspaier proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon which she anight inscribe her own price. The offer was refused. Robert Browning constantly refused to 'writs' .for the magazines and re views. He only departed from his seif-denririg ordinance on one occa sion, aw that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when Browning so cieties v.ere springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were offered to him even for a short ■poem. He put all. these tempting offers aside and "stuck to liis text" to his dyins4ay.

This student, Gottlieb Laederach, entered the University when the was twenty. He studied assiduously, but owing to a nervous temperament he could never pass an examination.

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 26 March 1914

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. 11 is notew rthy that two murderers have "recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent, of capital sen tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain ;being over 50 per cent. iThe newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without maicli discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must he carried out by beheading, ibut it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded 'by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE MORE THAN 100 YEARS? [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 26 March 1914

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE MORE THAN 100 YEARS? The decrease in the death-rate dur ing the last century has been remark able, but, as every well-informed phy sician will tell you, it has been brought about chiefly by lessenging the num ber at deaths among infants and per sons under thirty-five years of age. After the latter age the danger of death is greater than ever, in spite of all that medicine and surgery can do. T.he famous British physician, Sir James Sawyer, believes it is by no means a difficult matter for any hu man being to live to be 100 years old. He has recently declared that any- ■ body can attain this age, unless killed by accident, if he or she will religious ly observe the following eighteen "commandments of. health":— 1. Eight hours' sleep every night. _ 2. Sleep on your right side. 3. Keep your bedroom window open, i 4. Have a mat at your bedroom door. 5. Keep your >bed away from the wall. G.

GOOD HEALTH. Following are lines by Sir Alfred Power:— "There's a skin without and a skin within, A covering skin and a lining skin; But the inner skin is the skin without Double inwards and carried through out; The mouth, the nostrils, the windpipe and throat, Are all of them lined with this inner coat, Which through every 'part is made to extend— Lungs, liver and 'bowels, from end to end. The outside skin is a marvellous plan For discharging the dregs of the flesh of man; While the inner one takes from the food and the air What is needed the waste of the flesh to repair.

CHAPTER XXI. Perhaps it was well for Netta that the old lady, so severely tried of late, collapsed as she was intending to en ter the house, full of resolve to "see the disappointed young bride whose wedding had been so roughly inter rupted by her relative, Gwendolen Halldare, through." Netta, forgetting herself and the crisis in her life, summoned the ser vants and the confectioner's man to her rescue—herself assisting to carry Lady Moiitamor to her bedroom and i:ndressing her with tenderest solici tude while Annie rushed for the doc tor. "Oh mem! That there gipsy—'ere are 'er words hout! If it ain't liaw ful! 'Is lordship called away sud dint, 'er ladyship took ill no weddin' breakfis, no nuthinlt!

A REMARKABLE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 26 March 1914

A REMARKABLE MEETING, A strange adventure is recorded by a correspondent of a London paper who, meeting a medical friend, looked in at a Fleet-street tavern to talk things over. Here he met another friend, a master mariner. After an informal introduction his two compan ions talked of things in which he took no interest, and he joined in another conversation. Half-an-hour had elaipsed when they informed him—profusely grateful for 1 ihe introduction—that he had intro duced two brothers! They had been separated, not 'by quarrel, but by the estranging years. The mariner, as a weakly iboy whose ljfe was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived mean counties away, by the sea. He had never re visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met.

Lady Montanior's great eyes flashed scorn, ohe had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out of the shadow cast by a stone pillar.

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 26 March 1914

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE . OF MONKEYS. Concerning the supposed language of anthropoid apes, Professor Boutan has recently taken up the question and arrives at a negative result. It will be remembered that Dr. Garnier came to the conclusion that monkeys j have a language analogous to human language and express themselves by signs as well as 'by sounds which they emit. According to Professor Boutan, there is only a difference of degree be tween this and human speech and not one of kind. He observed the sounds made by a biggon which he had cap .tured when young, and his experi ments cover more than five years. He finds that the animal can produce only spontaneous and instinctive sounds corresponding to a state of satisfac tion or the like, or again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appear to correspond to a real language, hut rather to what he calls "pseudo-lan guage." While sounds of real lan guage are acquired iby education, those of pseudo-lan...
