LEC-IRONS FOR STRIKERS 1893. OAKES SAYS LABOR MEMBERS DID NOT PROTEST. His Statement Disproved in Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
LEG-ieONS FOR STRIKERS \U 1893. OAKES SAYS LABOR MEMBERS DID NOT PROTEST. His Statement Disproved in Parliament. . Talking at Paddington on Friday night, Minister Oakes said, in reference' to the leg-ironing of Peter Bowling and the out cry that had been made against that act by the Labor Party, that ' s,ome ;pf that crowd', had ' forgotten ' the 'time when Sleath and Ferguson- and Polkinghorne were, by direction of the Dibbs Govern ment, brought from Broken Hill to Denili quin — 600 miles— in irons. But there had not then been a word raised in protest by Mr. McGowen or any of his party, because it did not suit them, as they were then supporting. the Government. The present leg-iron ? cry was only a herring drawn across the trail, for what was to-day a crime by the Wade Government was a virtue in 1893 by the Dibbs Government. Quoting a report of this in the House on Monday night, Mr.. Cann asked the Minister if it was correct. The Minister replied that it was. substantially so, and ...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
TO CORRESPONDENTS. Publications l'eceived: 'The Union Labor Advocate,' Chicago, from that wo man's champion, Miss Alice Henry; and 'The Chronicle of the P.W.M.U.,' Victoria. The tea-rooms of the union are advertised on the back of the paper, and the advt. contains the following interesting line: — ' Missionary literature and arrowroot on sale.' It is evident someone lacks a sense of humor — possibly even of ? proportion One good thing it has started, however, and that is, 'A Mail Bag League,' whereby a person who can cook, teach, or an3rthing else, can write to one who can't, so that cheer and mutual helpv result. Towns people are supposed to write to thescoun try, and vice versa. It is the same sort of thing a Worker woman, suggested for Worker women awhile ago, with the ad dition that foreign correspondence be in-^ eluded. I hope our women or our bairns will take up the idea.. As I said I would do, I have turned talking into doing, and have written to Buenos Aires. Through Buenos ...

FOR THE BAIRNS. . JULY. 'Twas Jack-o' -Winter hailed- it first, But now more timid angels sing, For what dull ear can fail to hear Afar the fluting of the Spring?

A music ringing in the air, A lambent light in everything; O sweet my sweet, the subtle heat, The dancing, light of Love and Spring! — J. Le Gay Brereton, in 'Sea and Sky.'

HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
HOUSEHOLD; Fainting.— Fainting is caused by lack of blood in the. brain, cerebral anaemia to be exact. Something happens suddenly, so that the heart changes its action, and the distribution of blood is. interfered with; the brain misses its regular, un broken supply of vascular distention, and. general nourishment and down falls the patient in a faint. Falls! Just so. That is Nature's remedy. The flow of blood to the brain is more easily regulated in a recum bent position, the force of gravity assists, the heart, and consciousness once more re awakens. Anyone who is dizzy from stooping, or as a preliminary to a faint, has only to hold the head well, down, the lower the better, for the aberration to be righted. Forget to do this, and a fall or a faint may ensue. A writer on the sub ject says: — 'A hemorrhage from any part of 'the body may cause a faint. People with weak or disordered hearts often faint / easily, because some sudden demand upon the heart causes it to send out a call f...
