CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor.] OUR RECREATION RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
OORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor.] OUR RECREATION RESERVE. Sir,---Some time ago 1 noticed, on reading a report of the Borough Council meetinI in your nTpcr, that councillors generally were fully cognisant of the fact that our Central Reserve was in a very bad state of repair, practically un fit for use, and that they- were all anxious that it should be put into a de ctfit state. When a report wat, sutmnit. ted showing that extensive repairs were necessary, costing about £SOO, the idea was dropped like a hot potato. There is no necessity for the council to set aside the idea of improving the re serve. and there is uno ecessity to spent iuch a large sum as that mentioned b-t it is in the interests of the town and the organisations which use the re serve that something should be done. and that speedily. Why are the Car nival people forsaking the reserve his year and going to the park? Is it be. cause the former place is not fit to draw people to 7 What is wanted a the reserve is for the ...

NUPTIAL PUZZLE. WIDOW WEDS DUKE. MARRIAGE DECLARED VOID. APPEAL TO ENGLISH COURT. LONDON, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
NUPTIAL PUZZLE. WIDOW WEDS DUKE. MARRIAGE DECLARED VOID. APPEAL TO ENGLISH COURT. LONDON, Monday. An action, which has aroused con- siderable interest in society circles, is at present being heard in the London courts. Countess De Grasquet James is suing Duke Borwin of Mecklenburg-Schwerin for the restitution of conjugal rights. The Countess is the American widow of a French Count. She married the Duke, who is a cousin of the reigning Arch-Duke, at a registry office at Do- ver in 1911. A religious marriage ceremony was gone through in France two months later, but the High Court' of Mecklenburg annulled the union on the ground that the Duke had married without the consent of his guardians, therefore the Countess was no wife in Germany. The Countess is now asking the Eng- lish court to define her position in England.

HOSPITAL RESIGNATIONS. MISS BALL APPOINTED MATRON. Last Tuesday evening, at the meet- ing of the committee of the Ararat Hospital and Benevolent Asylum, a let- ter was read from Miss B. Grellet, ten- dering her resignation as a nurse, which was accepted. Miss A. F. Roberts, the matron, also wrote tendering her resignation, and stating that she would like to be re- lieved of her duties as soon as possible. She also stated that three weeks' leave of absence were due to her. Mr Bryant moved- 'That the ma- tron's resignation be accepted," which was seconded by Mr J. Start and car- ried. The President stated that he had asked the sister to take up the posi- tion of acting matron, as Miss Roberts wanted to get away as soon as possible. Miss Ball consented to do so for a month. He also asked Miss Ball if she would be an applicant for the position of matron if it was advertised, and she said that she would have to consider that.

HINDU IMMIGRANTS BRITISH COLUMBIA'S CASE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
IlNDU IMMIi(RANTS BRITISH COLUMBIA'S CASE The Hon. E. G. Prior, ex-Premier of British Columbia, has been interviewed by Reuter's representative with regard to-the position of Indians in that pro vince. "The Indian question is one of the most serious that Canada or any other Dominion has to deal with," he said. "From one point of view it is very hard that Sikhs-men who have fought for us, and as regards physique and other qualifications compare very favorably with many white immigrants-should be excluded, but it must be recogn'sei that white people in the British colo nies will never submit to competition with Oriental. laborers, whose standard is so entirely different. How an ar rangement is to be arrived at will tax the best statesmanship, but certainly we in British Columbia have made up our minds to stand firm and keep a'l Orientals out "I hear that a legal decision has been given which would seem to be against the exclusion of these people; but you may be assured if such it the ...

ELEPHANT IUNT RATTLES AND TOM-TOMS.

Their Excellencies, the Viceroy and his wife, accompanied by his Highness the Maharaja of Mysore, the Yuvaraja, his brother, Sir Hugh Daly, Mr Camp bell, and the rest of the Vice-regal party, were motored from Governinent House to the Keddah camp. Here over 100 large tents have been pitched in an open clearing in the mid dle of the bamboo jungle, with roads and even gardens artistically laid out. Their Excellencies had a quiet tea, and then motored on about five miles to a stockade near the river, into which a herd of wild elephants which were on the opposite bank were to be driven.

INDIANS IN SOUTH AFRICA PICTURESQUE ADDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
INDIANS I SOUTH AFRICA PIOTURESQUE ADDITION. Whether his presence in the coun try is liked or not, it cannot be de nied that the Indian immigrant often adds to the picturesqueness of the South African scene (says the "West minster Gazette"). The Indian women show a great pedi lection for bright dolors in their dress; while the men go about their work with a grave composure, in strong contrast to the volubility of the Kaffir. The Malay Quarter in Capetown is one of the show-places of the city which visi tors are always advised to see. Even -in a busy mining town like Kimberley one may hear the solemn call to prayer .being given from a Mo hammedan mosque. It is the presence of this busy Indian. community which has prompted so many writers to call Capetown the meeting-place of Eas. and West-"Denver with a dash of Delhi," as George Stevens described it. INDIANS AND KAFFIRS. The Indian in South Africa has very little to do with the ,Kafflrs, and rare ly even works with them. He will sell...
INTEREST IN THE FILM VARIED USES [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
INTEREST IN THE FILM VARIED USES It is only within the last two years that the motion picture has been re garded in the light of an educational factor, and within that tmle extraordinary strides have been made in the direction of the improvement and value of the serious side of the film industry (says the "Daily Telegraph" of November 19)" Only so recently as Monday last a large gathering of medical men and nurses attended the West-end Cinema in Leicester square, to witness the screening of a number of films ot scien tific interest and importance. There is no subject which is out of the reach of the cinema, and zoology, botany, chemistry, as well as history and in dustry, are now yielding films of the utmost value and importance. So far as the masses are concerned, the motion-picture may be looked up on as a source of entertainment only, and this being so, the tendency to im prove the films that deal with drama, comedy, or subjects of domestic and human interest is one that cannot b...
WOMAN'S HAIR CLUE FUSE ACROSS A MOAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
WOMAN'S HAIR CLUE FUSE ACROSS A MOAT. By means of two mines an attempt was made last evening to blow up the wall of Holloway Gaol (says 'The Daily Mail" of December 21), but owing to the manner in which the mines were laid, little damage was done save that many windows in the neighborhood were smashed by the concussion. The explosions took place behind Dal meny-avenue, which backs on to the yard wall of the prison. The houses, which are rented at £65 a year, stand in gardens which stretch back at least one hundred feet towards the prison, from which they are separated by a dry moat twenty-five. feet wide. It was at the back of the houses num bered 10 and 12, the first being empty save for a caretaker and his family, that the explosions took place. The first was heard a quarter of a mile away. It startled the neighborhood Just after nine o'clock and was follow ed almost immediately by one more deafening. According to one person glass was heard to smash. in all direc tions. Whistles. ...

BOY IN SIONAL-BOX ENGINEDRIVER IN TRAP. The report of Lieutenant-Colonel Druitt, who held the Board of Trade Inquiry into the accident at St. James' Station, Liverpool. on October 15, when six persons were killed and 63 injured by a train dashing, into a stationary train, was issued yesterday (says 'The Daily Mail" of December 17). It was stated that at the time of the accident the booking boy in the Cen tral Station signal-box was working the block instruments, and Signalman W. Thompson, mistaking a signal which the boy took, admitted the colliding train. Driver Millward, of the colliding train, had stated that he ran into the train in' front of him without seeing anything. (St: James's Station is a small station in the open between two tunnels.) Midland drivers, the inspector states, stand on the right hand side of the footplate. and the signals being on the left hand side Millward depended on his fireman to look out for the signals. "I consider that Driver Millward only failed to...

BOY'S. IUIOR MEN MARCH ALL NIGHT. Ernest Kelly, aged 20, one of the two youthful murderers of an elderly book seller in his shop at Oldham, was exe cuted in Strangeways: Prison, Man chester, yesterday morning (reports '"The Daily Mail" of December 18), while 5000 men, women, and youths who had marched from Oldham stood outside the prison gates. "A pluckier little chap never walked to the scaffold. He bore himself brave ly, making neither whimper nor mur mur," Major J. O. Nelson, the prison governor, said. The Home Secretary had reprieved Kelly's accomplice in a murder for rob-. bery, an eighteen-year-old lad named Edward Hiltoni, on the ground of his mental deficiency, and because no nle of his age has been executed in Eng land in modern times.

PERFORMIN( ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING Many allegations were made against trainers at a meeting held last night in the Kensington Town Hall to pro test against cruelty to performing animals (reports "The Daily Telegraph" December 16). The audience, of whom the majority were ladies, indicated un mistakably that .they felt strongly on the matter; but a few of those present, headed by Captain Woodward and Mr Ginnett, made vigorous protests against certain of the charges of the speakers on 'the ground of their vagueness. A timber ot letters were read from sympathisers, among them being: Lord 'Morley of Blackburn: I can only say that I have the roost intense ab horrence of all performances that in volve helpless animals in wanton suf fering. Mr C. Bernard Shaw: A performing animal trained by kindness would be just as intolerable and unnatural a spectacle as one trained in the usual way. Mir Jerome K. Jerome: ,My objectio to the performing quadruped is the in jury he causes to the human...
DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION At the National Liberal Club last night Lord Haldane spoke somewhat alarmingly of the condition of educa tion in this country (states "The Daily News", December 16). He said he did not htink he was taking an unduly alarmist view when he said that indif ference to education was a serious na tional danger. We came into exis tence as a great industrial nation at a time when we had practically no edu cation. We were easily first in manufactures in the time when it wanted only dash and go and practical skill. But now the art of manufacture was linked with scientific education, and woe be to the country lacking in the scientific equip ment necessary to enable it to compete with its more favored rivals. That was not the only source of na tional danger. We were living in a time of great upheaval The democ racy had ceased to slumber, and it was asking the question why it had so much less than its neighbors of the world's. goods. We could no more deal with such a situa...
IMMORALITY AND TRADE STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
IMMIORALITY AND TRADE STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS. "We have to regret that the great boom in trade which has, more or less, affected every part of the kingdom in the past year has led to an increase of immorality." This striking state ment occurs in the annual report of the Central South London Free Church Council-Social Purity, Rescue, and Temperance Sections. "Although there has been a slight increase in the number of prosecu tions," the report also states, "we have been glad to recognise not only an unprecedently small number of discharges, but also a remarkable paucity in the number of defending solicitors who have ventured their ser vices on behalf of the misdemeanants and criminals who have been charged." Sister Margaret's rescue work con tinues to prosper. For the past year it represents the saving of 58. girls on the brink of ruin and the rescue of 46 from evil living.
