±A THE** , Mll?POP°/5pOI^ IIOKSK, FOOT, AND MAKING— Uy Our Currt-Mi-otidvitlH. A KuIho Alarm. A general impression was current last week that the New Zealand brigade was going to eat up the opposition at the opening day at Hand* wick (or the season, and when Good Day led off by saying to to the opposition in the initial event, that feeling became more pronounced, especially In tome quarters. However, al though we saw Dominion representatives in every one of the other events, not one could follow the lead, and most people came away satisfied that, after all, we have the sort to get in front in Australia.

COUNTRY GOSSIP ? ?? ?**? ? , . : NEWS FROM ALL SOURCES By HAYSEED. A Molong Lover. In Molong- Police Court last week a young man was charged with breaking into the house in which lived a girl with whom, on the evi dence, lie had been on very friendly relations. His object in the burglary of the premises was I to regain possession of some love letters he ' had written to her.

On it:s way 1o work one day lnst week, the traction engine' of the Byron Shire Council 'ell partly through a culvert on the Myoeutn road. No great damage was done the machine, and not much to.-the culvert, but it is asked, by the local paper, if all the bridges in the district are strong enough to permit of the -afe passage of heavy vehicles.

OLD COINS AND BOOKS [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 15 September 1917

OLD COINS AND BOOKS B. I. Meller (Auburn, S.A.) writes : 'I noticed by last week's Mirror one of the readers has a book dated 1804. I have a book dated 1704. I would like to know if it is of any value. It is entitled The Roman History from Total Failure of the Western Empire in Augus tulus to the Restitution of the Same by Charles the Great, Containing the' Space of 324 Years, Vol. IV., by the auth6r of the third. Printed for Jacob Lonson within Gray's Inn Gate, Lon don, 1704.' According to Cyril Maude, the late King Edward VII. used to make quite audible com ments concerning a performance while it was going on. ' If he thought the play was bad or good he would say so, and his opinions con cerning the players were equally free. As his running criticisms floated down from the royal box to the stage, they disconcerted the players who were adversely criticised, but the old hands took it as a matter of course. Edward should have been a good judge, since his relations with the stage were...

An Opportunity Seized. oyuncy ioik arc a Bcnerous-iieartea people, and the reception which was given to Miss Maude Fane on the opening night of You're in Love was a plain indication to that very clever and charming young lady that she was to be given every encouragement to justify the con fidence of the J. C. Williamson management in giving her the leading part in the new musical comedy, which was staged for the first time in Australia last Saturday night. She has, it seemed to me, taken full advantage of the op portunity to make good, and she makes a very delightful Georgiana — the girl who woos a bashful lover — in the new pifce, utilising to the full her rich, mellow voice, fascinating ways, pretty face, and dainty figure.

HUGH WARD, PREAXHERr HIS SERMON ON CHARITY. Once, iu New Zealand, when Mr. Hugh J. Ward had been attacked by various shocking people who pretended that The Girl from Rector's was not a moral play, he retorted with a crisp little sermon on Charity, which was published in a Maoriland magazine. That was exactly eight years ago, and it is inter esting to note how great a difference a little time can makei Mr. Ward is now patron of and contributor to the little Theatre Magazine and other posters, and occasional sheets de voted to the interests of J. C. Williamson, Ltd., of which firm Mr. Ward is. chief prop and stay. The first thing to be noticed, as one looks back to his sermon on Charity, is that his literary style has not improved with the years. Nor, apparently, docs he nowa days stand to all his old opinions. Else, how could we havt this?

THROUGH AUSTRALIAN WILDS XII.«Interesting Native Customs (Specially written for the Mirror by FRANCIS BIRTLES.) PRIMATIVE CUSTOMS. The piccaninnies were busily at work cook ing a ten-foot long piece of groper intestine. One little youngster sat on each side of the red-hot embers, hauling this tit-bit backwards and forwards, critically examining it to see if the parts were properly cooked. A pack of a dozen skinny hairless mongrels anxiously watched the proceedings in vain. ? The black Piccaninnies will not break their tribal lau/c apparently there would not be any punish ment for doing so, as the parents never chas tise them. Their primitive strong conserva tism keeps them along the ways of their ancestors. Iguana is one of the staple foods. Of this everyone can eat. Snake, too, is a favorite diet. Vegetable foods, such as water-lily roots and seeds, box-tree seeds, yams, fungi, nuts, wild grapes and wild figs are gathered by the lubras, and cooked and eaten by all hands as a light ...

A Pa$e for ^fbung) People Dear Girls and Boys, — Such a number of you liavc written nice letters about The Mirror Comic. It really was an excellent idea, wasn't it ? I am so glad, too, that you like the serial story so much. One of my correspondents writes that she hopes Svd docs not tet drowned at sea. Surely he won't, though, as that would make a sad story for us all, I am reading Sons of the Sea each week, and find it keenly in teresting. In this iFsue we are publishing the photo graph of a little girl who gives promise of rare musical talent. And this has suggested to me that it would be a good idea to have such photographs frequently. The Mirror will, there fore, be. glad to receive from the schools infor ir.ation about scholars' success, either at their studies or in sport. If accompanied by a photo graph this will make an interesting feature each week. AUNT BEE.
