MONDAY, 8.30 A.M. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

MONDAY, 8.30 A.M. Some Reflections on a ltoillng Copper. 'The cof/pers boiling' — this is (lie com mon phrase uf early Monday, the housewife's call to the weekly task. Let us follow it with ?a question that is not so simple as it sounds : 'What is it boiling for?' Most people would answer, 'Why, to boil the dirt out of the ' clothes, of course.' Quite so, but for health's sake something more than dirt has to be clone away with in the household washing, namely, the seeds of infectious disease. Infection may be communicated to a whole city (and beyond it) from one single patient, of which the smallpox epidemic is n case in point. It is due to tiny organisms, hardly visible through a microscope but intensely alive, thrown off in the course of the disease. These float in the air or dust and drift to clothes and house linen as naturally as steel draws to a magnet ; we call them ' Genus,' or seeds of disease, because just as an ordinary seed grows to a plant, so a disease germ on a human ...

GERMANS SCARED BY FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

GERMANS SCARED BY FOOTBALL. The 1st of April, writes 'Eye Witness,' was not allowed to pass without playing a practical joke on the enemy. An aviator, flying over Lille aerodrome, dropped a foot ball. - It fell slowly through the air, and the Germans could be seen hurrying from all directions to take cover from what they evidently thought was a bomb. That it bounced to an enormous height from the ground without exploding was probably taken to be due to a 'delay action' fuse, for for It was npt until the ball finally came to rest that they emerged from their shelters to examine it. On it was written: 'April fool — Gott strafe England.'

DANGEROUS WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

DANGEROUS WIRE. Just along Main-street, beyond Albert street gates, barbed wire is used for fenc ing, and not only that, but it is placed on the outside, where passers by could very easily tear good clothes, besides inflicting a painful wound. Somebody will have the bad luck to do this some day or night, and then the council will probably scratch its collective head while it pondered over its responsibility in the matter. Some of the aldermen would better have a look at it.

"REPAIRERS OF THE BREACH." [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

'REPAIRERS OF THE BREACH.' This is the title of a -beautifully illus trated booklet issued by the Salvation Army. It is the record of that body's social work throughout Australia for 1914. So great has this work become that it now takes £250 per day to meet the financial needs of these homes. The William Booth Memorial Home, in Sussex-street, Sydney, alone accommo dates 675 men every night. Three thousand people sleep under the Army's care every night in Australia; 2500 new cases entered the homes last year. Of the number who passed out during 1914, 1000 were placed in good situations; 650 restored to friends. More than a third of a million cheap beds and a greater number of cheap meals were supplied, while nearly 19,000 beds and 46, 000 meals were given to destitute people. The Army, with confidence, and with every % right, aBk for donations towards the up keep of the numerous homes under their control. The above record is one to be proud of.

Those Photographs. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

Those Photographs. (To the Editor.) Sir, — In reading 'Things we'd like to see,' I thought that instead of wasting all that valuable space and ink it would be better, Mr. Editor, if you got the Progress Com mittee to work and ask them to offer a prize of, say £3/3/- for the best set of 12 views (15 x 12) of the beauty spots of Lithgow. This could be judged by, say, Mr. Padley, who has done so much for us in opening up these places. I think if this were done that the whole army of amateurs and professional photographers would get 'on the job' and the P.A. would soon have enough pictures for all that is required.- — Yours, etc., 'HYPO.' [We take exception of the remarks of 'Hypo' about wasting the space taken up by 'Things we'd like to see,' seeing that these paragraphs are contributed \-y various people; and \ to prove that it is not wasted space, we just re+'er 'Hypo' to uio own letter. It stirred him up. — Ed.]
