The cable reports 70,000 divorces in America in one year, and up go the palms of the wow sers, and: horror gleams in the orbs of the churchmen. Think of it—14,000 people liberated from the so-called holy bonds in one year, and that was 1906 eight years ago. Wo doubt those eight years have witnessed a very consider able increase. But they still call the 'ountry the United States, although the Disunited States would he a more descriptive title. It is re marked that a great many clergymen in Am erica are not opposed to the divorce laws. Pos sibly this is because more divorces mean more marriages...

MOTOR NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

I read Mr. Alec Jewell's letter to the "Argus" upon the subject of the .Reliability liun arranged bv the committees of the Automobile Clubs of Vic toria and New South Wales. Mr. Jewell is rather severe in his remarks, and his criticism of the management and the. time selected is interesting. VTr. Jewoil does not mince matters when he "sin cerely trusts that the committees of both the clubs will not ngain ne entrusted with the carrying-out of such an important event as a Melbourne-Sydney Reliability Contest." This is severe criticism in deed. and a sweeping one. Mr. Jewell has included the whole of two bodies of men each representing livt, honourable, and energetic clubs. Then he goes on to say that "the almost superhuman efforts of Messrs. Bick and H. James, of the Continental and Dunlop Rubber Companies, prevented the contest from beii'.g an absolute failure." And here, I think, is where I can detect a humorous side to Mr. Jewell's criticism. Messrs. Bick and Jaines are b"th 011 th...

THE LADIES LETTER HOLMBY HOUSE, TOORAK. Dear Peg,— [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

HOLMBY HOUSE, TQORAK. Dear Peg,— Weddings never lose their subtle attraction as functions for Society in general—no matter how blase the attitude to every new. fad and novel entertainment that startles, then wanes in interest. All the world loves a wedding— because it is one of those things that may happen to any of us at any moment, so to speak. Then there is all the thrill of gazing upon the victims for the last time, and the delightful- gambling element of uncertainty about it all—Will thev suit, or is "she"' much to be pitied ? etc. Next month Society will have its appetite sated with two peals of joy-bells and two expensive orange-blossomed functions. The son of our Lieutenant - Governor, Mr. G\iy Madden, is about to pledge himself as the de voted benedict of Miss Doris M'EVcv , and the "Cliveden" flatterie already hums and flutters beneath the magic spell of the dressmaker and all her clan. A perfectly ravishing tiousseau, my 'dear ; and frocks from the creme of the autumn sho...

SYDNEY SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

SYDNEY SHOWS. Mr. Fred Niblo/ and his company ha^c put on a new play. It is called "Never Say Die," and is a splendid example of. American larce-eomedy. The play is crowded with subtle humour and situations packed with com-idy. In America it iormed part of the repertoire of that great comedian, Mr. W. P. Collier. Mr. Collier failed in Australia where Mr. Niblo has succeeded. The Collier magner is quiet and.. confidential. The Niblo manner is that of the finished comcdian who hands his goods out across the iootlights so that everybody can hear and appreciate. The difference between the two men is only understood when Mr. Niblo is seen in a play like this. It is so easy to imagine how Mr. Collier would play it, and so easy to imagine howi Australian audiences would fail to "get" him. There is no possibility of this with Mr. Niblo. He understands hhe Australian audience, and although in,, America he would probably play "Never Say Die" in the Collier style, here in Australia he plays it...

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

THE WHI8PERING GALLERY. No man enters with more confidence into the coming Federal fight than Joseph Cook, P.M. Parramatta Cook may not get as much fun out of politics as he got from coal-mining, union organising, or orcharding. But certainly poli tics suit him best. He is a born Parliamen tarian. They say he was not a very good miner—he had not the physical strength. He admits he is not a great orchardist A certain tall, Cook youth is making the family name great in that regard. P.ut the Prime Minister is a great Parliamentarian, and his subtlety and mastery are to be counted upon in the 1914" fight. He has made precedents already— he says frankly, in spirit that would have shocked the old staid and slow school, that he has twisted standing orders and stretched Par liamentary rules in order tojjct points for his Government.
