Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

Sir G-eorge ReitJ believes in talk. This is to be expected. He is a lawyer. He talked him self to the top of the trie in his profession ; then, not satisfied, he talked himself to the tnn m politics, and continued talking till lie reach ed his present dizzy eminence as very High Commissioner. He can talk himself no higher until he talks his way into heaven. All this is due to his beginning as a boy of iifteen to cultivate the art of public speaking. He cul tivated it to such advantage in a debating club that in a few months he was talking the heads off adult members, as they had talked ■. his off. "The worm had turned," savs Sir George, ''and 'it has gone oh turning." Having attained ex cellence as a speaker, Sir George should be more apt in his figures of speech. Whatever else you may see in our High and Wade Commis sioner, we defy you to see any resemblance to a worm. Sir George couldn't wriggle if his life depended on it. Outside the political sense we mean, of course. On the sam...

Photo Focus. 500 H. AND D. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

Photo Tocus. By "Lem." 500 H. AND D. What is the limit of speed obtainable upon a photographic dry plate ? Despite the fact that fox years the Lumiera Violet Label plate has been advertised as "500 H. and D.," many photographers have declared 300 to be the limit of speed obtain able under our methods of manufacture. They ap pear to forget that the world moves, and that manufacturers and scientists move with it. A few years back 200 was regarded as all that was humanly possible, but 'for some time 300 has been commercially produced by such makers as Imperial, Wcssner, Wellington, and others. Now Marion claims the Lumiera limit. Concerning this plate, so competent an authority as R. Child Bayley writes - _ "The new plate, which is to be known as "The Record," is one which we have lately had an oppor tunity of trying in actual work, in circumstances which called for as high a degree of rapidity as it was possible to procure—indoor work in the light which Londoners have to put up with i...

People We Know Ruling Classes. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

Ruling Classes. When Australia was a now t<jy, and a bright geographer had made the discovery that it was the Antipodes of Great britain, it becamc fashionable to make it antipodean in every way. Travellers told gorgeous tales of how all things were inverted in Australia- Swans were black. Birds did not sing. Flowers had no scent. Cherries hadi the stone outside. Ducks flew 'backwards. Water ran up-hill, and all the rest of the grotesque lies which adorned the geography books of Great Britain for ,a long while. Perhaps it is the influence of that anti podean atmosphere which was created round Australia which has caused us to do things differently now that we are at all events adoles cent. We do invert things a good deal. In England women fight desperately lor votes. Here we have given them the right to vote, and men fight desperately to get them to exercise it. But it is in the matter j at the ruling class that we have our most notable ■ inversion. In England, of course, ...

THE CURATE AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

THE CURATE AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER. "The Walrus"' does not always (rive credence to the tales of photographers' iniquities which appear in print. In a recent number he writes as foi lows :—Naturally, one does not often hear of any thing to the credit of photographers, so that I can not refrain from quoting the following pleasing inci dent from one of the weekly papers. It is from an article wrth the dainty title, "Doing Down Country Curates." The vicar, who is supposed to be tell ing the stories—I mean anecdotes—says, "One day there comes a tourist, with knapsack and camera, anxious to be permitted to photograph some of the old carvings in the church. You give permission, and while he is making a long exposure you chat. Again you are impressed. He is so reverent, and quiet. When he has .finished he inspects the brasses, and pays you so many subtle compliments that you nearly ask hint to lunch. lie desires—nay, he asks r that h3 may be permitted to put half a sovereign in the 'Church Re...

NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY. An ingenious method, where practicable, of ob taining night photographs is described in the lasti issue of "Photography." The practice is said to/ be very popular with London photographers. They I secure their results by a single long, exposure, made) after dark, and therefore with no other illumina tion but the artificial one. This is almost com pulsory, from the difficulty of finding a standpoint amid the traffic where tht; camera can be left abso lutely undisturbed for an hour or more at tin lenst. But where such is possible, one can adopt tht double exposure plan, making the first ex posure—a very brief sfiutter one—an hour or so be fore dusk, so that moving figures may be secured, and then, closing the dark slide with the greatest care to prevent all chance of moving the camera or plate, waiting until dark and then giving another exposure, this time one running into a minute or more, in order to get the night effect. When work ing in this way, the first expos...

That Trust. "It may be taken for granted tshat this Min- • istry will not permit the Beef Trust or any other Trust to carry out any predatory designs on the people of the Commonwealth.*', So savs Prime Minister Cook. Mr. Cook adJs that the present laws give the administration ample power to deal with any s'ich danger that may arise. Meanwhile the Beef Trust is getting down to business in Australia. It has bought up wide interests on Alligator Creek,<• Queensland ; it is building large establishments at Towns ville. The Beef Trust is not a body to go fool ishly and blindly to work. Jt will certainly know all that the lawyers can tell it, and we may depend upon it that it is not starting its Australia, branch reckle.ssiy or without an ample understanding of all possible develop ments.

TWO CHILDREN HAD SKIM ERUPTION On Face, Hands and Legs. Ashamed to Take Children Out, Looked Dreadful. Used Cuticura Soap and Ointment. In Fortnight Quite Free from Sores. 427 Bay St., Port Melbourne, Vic.— " Some time ago my two children were suf fering from very nasty sores on face, hands and legs. I tried various remedies without any good results. Seeing a testimo nial in "Age," y, case the same as his being cured by Cuticura Ointment and Soap, I obtained some of these and started to use them. I first made a strong lather of Cuticura Soap and hot water, bathed sores well -with it and applied Cuticura Ointment oh clean rag. I have much pleasure in informing you that in a fortnight they were quite free from sores. Before I tried Cuticura Soap and Ointment I was really ashamed to take the children out. They looked dreadful and the neighbours were afraid to let their little ones play with mine, in case they got sores also. I think Cuticura is splendid also for the hair, as it cleanse...

The F Rays. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

The F Rays. Signor Ulivi promises to step up beside his compatriot, Marconi, as a- revolutionary inven tor. With his wireless F-rays he can explode the ammunition in a warship miles away. That A.N.A.

A.'s most notable products" being so, what is the value of a Dioaunought ? It becomes merely an instrument for its own destruction—a sort of floating foomb waiting for the enemy to explode it, and blow all aboard to eternity. An airship carrying ammunition is no better off. Ulivi F-rays seek it out, and it crashes in middle air, and showers its frag ments on the ground. People are saving that this invention will make war impossible.

DRYING NEGATIVES QUICKLY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

DRYING NEGATIVES QUICKLY. When I want to dry negatives quickly I find the full owing- a good method Alter washing, tlie nega tive is earefuliy wiped over with a small niece uf cotton-wool previously wetted, so as to remove the surplus water Irom the fili/i side, and then with a dry rag the glass side is wiped dry. The rack is then removed from the washing tank and the nega tive replaced in it. Stretched across from wall to wall over the gas stove is a line, and a string being tied to the rack, the latter can be hung from the line over the stove, keeping it some two feet sbove the gas-jets. Then it is left to dry, with a very >:mull jet alight beneath it. With a little practice t.fie gas can be adjusted to such a height tnat there need not be the slightest worry about melting of the film. My usual time-table for a print that is wanted quickly may be gathered irom the following record of actual work done. One day I exposed a half-plate at 10.30 a.m., the develop ment and fixing wer...

Up With the Gum. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 February 1914

Up With the Gum. It is an extremely difficult matter to awaken in the mind of the man on the land a fair appreciation of any enterprise that, does not offer a direct and immediate return. The man on the land in Australia is a man in a hurry. He has been accustomed to tearing his profits out of the virgin soul with the greatest expedi tion, and the investment of time, energy, and money in a business that takes longer than twelve months to begin to turn in cash is one that fails to appeal. As a result of this very bad husbandry in Australia, we are likely, to !be presently at the necessity of importing wattle bark for tannery purposes from South Africa, and a little later in all probability we shall be glad to purchase eucalyptus extract and fine gum timbers from California. True, a noise is being made about our folly in permitting the land to be denuded of its timber. But pre cisely the same kind of noisi has been going up to heaven for thirty years past, and it will have to be a muc...
