Liberal Workers' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

Liberal Workers' Union. (By W. E. LAMB.) What should prove a. boom and a blowing to. workers and employers alike is the founding of a Liberal Workers' Union, a branch of which ia being formed in Horsham. The aim of the Union ia to establish a system of union that binds together persons with the object of improving the conditions and protecting the interest of its members;' to endeavor to obtain and maintain reasonable hours and fair rates of pay ; and to permit 51 good understanding between employer and employe, and the . bette-r regulation of their relations. The aspersion so. often cast upon the Liberal workers, that their sole aim ia to con serve the interests of property owners is not true.

The drawbacks of a chemists' profession are the long hours, and having to listen all day long to other peoples' aches and pains —and no matter how dog tired we may get we cannot take a glass of anything, having always to keep a clear brain. Perhaps, after all, it's a good thing for us that we've to be so very careful, because it makes us turn to tea, and tea's as good a thing as anybody can drink— of course, when 1 say tea, I mean pure tea, and presume that it's not overdrawn in the making—now, as nice a cup of tea as anybody need ask for is Robur No. 1 Grade — don't stew it— let it draw just "five minutes "—no longer—that's the secret of a good cup of tea — you'll remember that, won't you?

THE FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

THE FLAW. Within the church a chant ascends, The flower-decked aisle divides The bridegroom's relations and friends Prom those that are the bride's. And he is there, a stalwart youth Of manly charm possessed, And she, a prize in very truth, In pearly satin dressed. The vows are made, the prize is his, Yes, really his, at last! But as he claims the nuptial kiss His brow is overcast. And when the joybells peal on high, When wine and speeches flow, There comes into his sparkling eye A furtive look of woe. Beside him sits his chosen bride, In his she slips her hand, But though she smiles on liim in pride She does not understand. His hidden anguish, though acute, Must all alone be borne— The toecap of his patent boot Is pressing on a corn. —Jessie Pope.
