EXPENSIVE ELEPHANTS NEW REGULATIONS FOR HUNTERS. The white man is no longer free to shoot elephants at his will and plea sure In French A Vest Africa (says the Paris correspondent of the "Daily News and Leader").

This Is only good for one year (or less, if the decree is issued before the lapse of a year), and only entitles the holder to kill two elephants. Every elephant shot in excess of the two must be de clared, and paid for at the rate of at least £120 per head, and not more than five in all may be killed in the year. The spoils of an elephant killed in self-defence must be handed over to the district authority.

A SMART COAT AND SKIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
A SMART COAT AND SKIRT. The new autumn coats have cuta way lines and low-crossing wide rev ers. Their collars are usually wide with points on the shoulders, aud their backs either hang plain and loose or are slightly held In by a belt. The coat showing here is very new and the revers may 'be rolled to the throat if preferred.

TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
TRAMPS IN FRANCE LAWS SEVERE "Since Novomber 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 and 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 l glster thomselves. 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 which 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, ...

PRESSED LYING DOWN [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
PRESSED LYING DOWN Illusions are born to be destroyed, and last night another one received a death-blow (say^s the "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. "The 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 feile, 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 the belt under it, tho 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...

JEWELS PAWNED [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
JEWELS PAWNED Messrs Hancocks and Company, jewellers, sued Messrs J It. 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 a special jury (says "The Daily Mail," November 25). 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 ...
HOMES WITHOUT DOORS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
HOMES WITHOUT DOORS (By George A. Birmingham, in ,rl'he Daily Mail") I Members of great and conquering na I tions are able to impose their own fav orite customs upon the peoples among whom they travel. The English, for in stance, have spread tne nuuit of _ur.nK j ing tea in the afternoon all over Europe, forcing on extra meal every | day on the naturally abstemious Laiin peoples. The Americans have insisted on having all the chief hotels in Europe heated to scuh ai extent that the origi nal inhabitants of the Continent go about gasping. The French, though they do not travel much, have taught everybody in the world to write lists of cooked food in their language and to call the lists menus. It is, I think, to the Germans that we owe the fact that wo can smoke in the restaurant-cars belonging to the International Company of Wagons-lits, in spite of notices put up in several languages forbidding the practice. But we others, who belong to small nations, have neither the power nor the ri...
CHAPTER II. The Tide of Fortune. I. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
CHAPTER II. The Tide of Fortune. I. The precise reasons whicli kept their friend Hugh Donald from the ■breakfast table were discussed to the accompaniment of deep 'breathing and unlimited marmalade by these sapi ent men of affairs, Jack Bowles and Freddy Bywater. Mat Michel, deep in the morning paper, which dealt with the meaner things of life, added littl to the argument though he heard much of it. A kindly friendship for the absent man put a ibit upon his tongue. He was old enough to know . that something had happened. "You are not going to tell me that be is taking another lesson," Freddy put it to th •philosopher. Mat said that he had not the least idea. It was left for Jack Bowles, in an inter val of mastication, to tell them that Hugh's car had been ordered, and that he found the fact significant. 'A man wJio sticks in a car when he might be playing golf should he seen to by a doctor," he remarked: and then, as though this were the greater concern: "I'll trouble you to pass th...

SOME BROWNING RELICS VALUABLE GIFT Mr F. Herbert Stead, presiding yes terday afternoon at the nineteenth an niversary meeting of the Browning Hall Brotherhood, at the Browning Settlement, Walworth, intimated (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 5) that a number of priceless Browning relics had been received from Mrs Bar rett Browning, daughter-in-law of the poet.

MAN IN THE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 March 1914
MAN IN THE FUTURE "That man is formed for the future, that the very structure and shape oi his soul points and urges him onward, is, perhaps, the surest of all pledges about his 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 come from this action? This it is which has made the prophets—the tr...
