' I wander round my garden plot, Wherein my soul delighted, My plants which were my joy and pride, Are now all scorched and blighted. My Dunlop hose, my water can, Are now no longer needed, For Scrap-iron George has said the word, My plaintive cry he has not heard, No matter how I pleaded. The hot winds blow — my feet per spire, I -thirfk I'll take a shower, Nought but a trickle warm but wet. Runs downs despite my glower. My wife decides to have a wash, For clothes get very ditry. She's up at four to make a start, No water flows to cheer her heart, Which makes her very shirty. I think I'd like a long cool drink, With crystal glass I hasten, A muddy liquor slowly flows, My burning mouth to chasten. Oh, damn ...

OUR LAWNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 10 October 1920

OUR LAWNS. The lawns requre particular care and attention at this period of the year if a good clean sward of grass is wanted for the summer months. Go earefullv over the lawns and pull up every foreign plant, roots and all, tile very small ones as well as the large. Having thoroughly weeded, run the mower over and cut as close as possible, and then sup ply a good supply of top-dressing, yse good clean yellow sand, mixed wfth chemical manures. Remembering that a lawn is cut very frequently during the summe* months, this is a heavy strain on the roots, and the fertility of the soil is soon expended. It is there fore imperative to maintain that fertility. Plant nutriment must be regularly supplied to keep the grass healthy, otherwise the lawn soon becomes bare, big patches drying out everywhere. A well-kept lawi» is a great asset to the home in summer, especially for the children. New lawns should be laid down this month and not later than 'No- vember. For buffalo grass, get the young...

Suggestions [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 10 October 1920

Suggestions. Cotton voile is extremely fash ionable. Frequently the plain and printed varieties will be blended, the upper part of a frock, for in stance, being in plain voile and the lower part and the cuffs of printed voile. Striped 'cotton voiles in all shades will^ be greatly in evidence. A pretty example of a two-toned frock is of white and pale blue voile for those who desire the less gaudy design. In all fashion cen tres the tendency is towards light er colours. Never choose ornamental dress for working hours, or common apparel of bright delicate or splendid ma terials. For all . occasions dress must be worn with order and dignity — care- fully kept and carefully put on. Treat your clothes with respect if you would have them look re spectable. . Good clothes, like good manners, are never out of place. ? u — Horizontal lines or trimmings de crease the height and increase ithe breadth. Vertical lines add to the height and decrease the breadth. Therefore, a short, stout lady sho...

FROM THE GALLERY. GOVERNMENT BREAK FAITH WITH THE PUBLIC SERVANTS IN A HYPOCRITICAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 10 October 1920

FROM THE GALLERY ? GOVERNMENT BREAK FAITH WITH THE PUBLIC SERVANTS IN A HYPOCRITICAL BILL. There is little- doubt that the Public Service Appeal Board Act, which the Government forced through the Legislature last week reDresents a deliberate breach of faith with the Public Service on the part of the Mitchell Government and even some of their own sup porters do not hesitate to say so. First breach is by placing condi tions on the election of the Civil Servants and Teachers Representa tive to the Board that their orga nisations do not contain a big per centage of the Services, the election of representatives passes out of their hands. The Government ori ginally wanted that percentage to be 95. but finally agreed to make it 85 per cent, after a severe fight by the Labour members, Then a long debate ensued on the clause dealing^ with the tempor ary men. The Bill sought to make a condition of appointment that the temporary was doing work similar to that of an officer on the perma nent st...

BATRIOTIC BOLTONS AND THEIR RETURNED SOLDIERS TRAINEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 10 October 1920

TRAINEES. Instances are not wanting since the war, of employers, -who have done their best to make a pront out of their returned soldiers. These unscrupulous individuals are -»»npra11v those who roared loudest during the war that nothing was or ever could be too good for our 'brave boys.' These batnots — a term that has the same relation to patriot that bathos has to pathos include among their number the Boltons, Coachbuilders, of Freman tle. This firm employs a number of vocational trainees, and even in the early stages of their' employ ment the inspector of trainees had to complain that these people, in stead of teaching them a trade, as they were supposed to do, were using them, as unskilled labourers, because they could make more pro fit out of them as such. Recently there was trouble in the Coach trade, and in the ensuing dispute the men won. Then only a few days ago Boltons' men had to hold, or threaten to hold, a stop work meeting, to get the necessary concessions from the Bo...

Yaps from Yanks and Canucks ? u ? A station agent out at Gunton, near Winnipeg, sought a permit to buy a revolver. * He said that the wolves used to meet the train in davlieht and paraded the streets.

Railway Fares A Peep Into the Future. Shepstacey, the squatter, con fronted his son. 'This is my final warning to you,' he cried. 'You must retrench, sir, or this year of grace 1930 will find you fending for yourself!' His son said no word, but studied the pattern of the carpet, while three generations of Shepstaceys looked down complacently from the library walls. 'Ever since you were demobbed, ten years ago, I have given you what I consider an ample, even generous allowance. ? In addition, have I not financed several crops of what you are pleased to call your 'wild oats-?' 'You have,' replied his son in ? a low voice, continuing to absorb the motif of the warp and woof. 'Have I ever kept you short of money?' demanded the other. 'You have not,' conceded the young man. 'Of course I 'haven't,' exclaimed the squatter, thumping his cheque book.
