The Selection of Candidates for Parliament. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
The Selection of Candidates for Parliament. (To the Editor.) Sir, — In reading your short paragraph re probable opposition to Mr. Dooley in your last issue, the thought struck me — 'How are candidates selected?' Well, sir, I believe, by vote of the members of various leagues (Labor and Liberal). If this is so, of whom do these leagues consist? Are they repre sentative of either the employer or the em ployed class? If ho. sood: if not, why do they pose as the embodiment of all wisdom, even going so far as to say to the majority of the electors, 'Here's your man: we've selected him. and you will be recreant to your party if you don't vole for him; he's the selected candidate.' If what I hear is true, at last State election one candidate was .selected by 15 people and another was selected by five people. To my way of thinking, sir, 1 consider it the height of im pertinence for this handful of people on either .side saying to me, 'Here's your man — we've picked him!' Am I not able to ju...
Oddfellows' Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
Oddfellows' Hall. 'Success brings success.' This is simply verified by the proprietors of the Oddfellows Hall Pictures. Last Saturday night more than three-quarters of their large auditor ium was booked long before the hour of opening. Those who were wise enough to avail themselves of the privilege were glad they did so, for a programme was presented which for excellence could not be surpassed. The stars were, indeed, beautiful specimens of the clnematographer's skill — especially 'By Fire and Sword.' The champion comedy, 'Charlie, the Champion,' kept the house in one continual roar. It was the funniest comedy seen for many a day. On Monday night the same edifice was again crowded to hear the Musical Blan chards, a combination of musical geniuses worth going miles to hear. The pictures shown were also up to par. For to-night, in order to secure your seat, we strongly urge patrons to book early. We congratulate Mr. E. Goodwin on his suc cess. He deserves it.
That Band Uniform. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
That Band Uniform. (To the Editor.) Sir, — Having read 'Anti-Humbug's' in sinuating letter, which appeared in the last issue of the 'Democrat,' I would like to place the facts of the matter before the public. I would also like it understood that the band does not want to cause friction or have controversy with anyone, but we con sider that we have sustained a grevious in justice at the hands of 'Anti-Humbug,' who eveidently does not know what he is talking ttuuui, j.-»uv», mr, jiiuiiur, ue acuusea us Ol asking the public to buy clothes for us. This is absolutely wrong, as we have never asked anyone for something for nothing, and would like to impress on 'Anti-Humbug's' mind that each member of the band has contribu ted £1/2/6 of his own money towards de fraying the cost of the uniform, and the balance of the money we are honestly earn ing, and consider we are quite in order in spending the money this way. By the way, if 'Anti-Humbug' will furnish me with a list of all the pence he h...

SPECIAL MEETING. The special meeting was then held. Mr. Delahunty moved his motion as outlined. The gentleman who got the privilege was at the 'Mercury.' Mr. Cullen seconded the motion for re cision. Mr. Thomas could see no harm in the action. If the man liked to give a photo free of charge, why should he not be al lowed to do it? There was no abrogation of Labor priciples in it. On being put to the vote it was defeated, the mover and seconder being the only sup porters. The next meeting will be held in a fort night's time.

ANCIENT GLASS MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
ANCIENT GLASS MAKING. Glass making has been going on in some ] parts of the world for thousands and thou sands of years (says a writer in 'Little Folks'). On an Egyptian tomb some f.000 j years old is n little picture of three men j busy making glass. A tall vase stands be- j tween two of them, and each man is holding j to his mouth a long blow-pipe, very similar to the blow-ppies that are used to-day . The odlest glass now in existence is that made by the Egyptains thousands of years before j the birth of Christ. In the British Museum are some beads and rings and little draughtsmen — exactly like the pieces used in game called 'Hnlma' — and long thin bottles in which Egyptian Indies carried the 'hohl' or stuff for darkening the eyelids, which all of them used, as they considered that it increased their beauty. But this old, old glass wns not much like what we think of as glass — it was not transparent, and it was nearly always color ed, and looked more like enamel, or the glaze tha...
THE FIRST CUP OF COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
THE FIRST CUP OF COFFEE. A famous Arabian dervish, Hadji Omar, had tried to teach honesty and justice to the ruler.s of hie native town, but they were vil lains, and would have none of such thing?. They preferred to rob and oppress the peo ple, and in order that they might not be re proved they drove Hadji from the city. Wandering by the wayside, tired and hun gry, the holy man plucked some berries from a shrub and tried to eat them; but they were hard and unpalatable, and to make them more anDetisina: he decided to roast them. They were certainly bitter, and gave forth a pleasant smell, but they were still hard, and Hadji decided to soak them in water. But they did not soften fast enough, so he boiled them, and now he found them quite eatable. But better than the berries was the water in 'which they had been boiled. It was so good that he asked others to taste it, and soon all Arabian people were gathering and roasting the berries of the coffee shrub in order to make coffee, which ...

Warning Given by a Cat [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
Warning Given by a Cat. A lady missionery home on furlough from a small village station in Central India tells the following: — 'I was sitting at my small harmonium one night alone in the house, with all the natives asleep in the compound, my cat, which we kept for rat-catching, jumped up and walked over the keys. On being pushed down it jumped up again and repeated the process a third time. Surely, I thought, pussy is trying to tell me some thing, as this was a thing it had never done before. It now walked to my bedroom door and mewed piteously. The bedroom being in total darkness. I annroachfid carefullv. and heard a very curious noise inside. There is some animal there, I said, and as it was just shortly after a tiger scare, I went out to rouse the natives. They came very un willingly and timidly, because of the strange sound which was audible to us all. At last, after a very strong talking to, I got some of the men to come in, I, of course, leading the way with a lantern. There,...
