They have even turned him down in his stronghold, Burswood-Belmont. Ru moured that the McSmith fearful of the coming 'hoeing' is disposed to pull out for North Perth in favour of his friend, Cocky ; but it is ques tionable if the latter could do as well as the Resumption Expert, who by the way, was nearly beaten last election by a practically un known Single Tax candidate.

Sub-Rosa [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Sub- Rosa . In a recent assault case a w:te complained that her husband threw at her a rhubarb pie, which spoilt her show dress. He also threw a macaroni pudding and a cake which rolled under the bed. — News item. I never thought when first I gave my promise To be to you a faithful loving wife, That some day with a macaroni, pudding You'd try to take away my youth ful life. I never thought when in a mood caressing You whispered, 'How I love yoti.' wi£h a sigh, That some -day round the house you'd me be chasing , And in your hand a juicy rhubarb pie. ^ I never thought when at the church foregathered The words that made me yours were duly said, g That some sad day the cakes I had been baking You'd shy with angry intent at my head. Ah! Love has gone, my new show dress is spotted, The happy days I dreamed of long have fled; The macaroni pudding's on the ceiling, My lovelv cake is underneath the bed. i ? ^ ?

"Scaddan's Speedway" Tram Travelling THE LORD-STREET BONE RATTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
'Scaddan's Speedway'! Train Travelling THE LORD-STREET BONE BATTLER. Those citizens of Perth who, un fortunately live in tie district served by the Lord-street tram are' up in arms over the wretched ser-, vice doled out to them by Corporal Pope and Lance-Corporal Button.! The growls of users of the service ] are growing daily louder, and be-'| fore. long the poor old 'Scaddani Speedway' public will be so driven j to desperation, that something ter-i rible will happen. . I For one thing the time table is a| ratty old affair, and is only a. half-1 hourly run. At ev'n time an ex*| tra 'bus is put on for a. couple of I trips, so giving a quarter-hourlyJ tram from the river. Even then j the cuss words of the jammed-upl strap-hangers, and eyebrow-grip^ | pers on the back of the old rattJa-1 traps- are dreadful for even a MuvJ ror man to hear. ' m Surely the car could be run fromi the Beaufort-street junction to ihelj terminus all the time, giving a 10-| minute service to the 'Norwood^ i (...
A Peep Into the future. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
A Peep Into the Future; Now Phyllis has a dainty hand, Her fingers long and slender; Her nails are nicely manicured, Her flesh is pink and tender. She wears a diamond circlet On her third and left-hand finger; And in and out her dainty curls This hand doth often linger. And so when asked what she will do To check this profiteering, She smiles and answers with a cob, In voice so firm and cheering, Why need you ask — my dear old loves? Why! Ill dispense with gloves. Now Mary had a shapely leg, With skin as white as snow; And only when upon the beach TJbis shapely leg could show. Her instep was a perfect arch, Her ankle was so slender, , That every one who glanced at it Would admiration render. And so when Mary's aid was sought To check this profiteering,' She shyly smiled— then 'quickly thought. Then — criticism daring, She answered, as she dabbed the powder on her dainty nose, ? Why, I'll dispense with hose. * Poor Martha was Bill Workman's wife, Her children they were many; And, as ...
Unfair Laws in Cricket J. B. Hobbs, Britain's Best Batsman, Discusses Bales Thai Should Be Altered. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Unfair Laws in Cricket — a — J. B. Hobbs, Britain's Best Bats man, Discusses Rules That Should Be Altered. I am afraid the title of this ar ticle is somewhat misleading. 'Unfair Laws in Cricket' might be the headline in a serious charge of unfairness against the M.C.C.. thr- august body which frames the rules that govern the game. I merely want to suggest a few alterations in the existing laws which might be for the good of cric ket generally. For instance, in our first 'match at the Oval this year a player was given^mt for hitting his wicket. The umpire was right according to the book of rules, but wrong so far as the spirit of the game is concerned. As a matter of fact, this player did not hit his wicket in the propci sense. He merely made a very poor stroke at a ball, edging it and causing a splinter of the bat to fly off and remove a bail. When this catastrophe occurred his bat was quite a yard and a half from the stumps. Surely the law dealing with cases of hit wicket calls for...
Maylands Mems [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Maylands Hems — u — Signs of summer, open air pic tures here this week. Np spooning aloud. Must do it quietly or not at all. Soon the small and large boys will be diving for .the festive cob bler and racing the crab across the river. The lads are already mem orising some new oaths with which to salute onlookers. If they can better their performances of last season it will be necessary to either plug your ears or dig up a police man for company. A Maylands resident has got his license as a Trots Tommy Rook. Expects to stand up shortly and help his clients to long shots on aJl the good things. — o — What with, shops, picture shows, Town Halls, dozens of private houses in course of erection, 'May- lands is a-going of it.'- Pidgeon, the draper, says that undoubtedly the centre of the business block will be where he is, and forecasts rows of shops to come along Guildford road between 7th and 8th Ave. What fools we mortals be.

Hip, hip, hip, hooray. Miss' Coral Graves and Miss Bella Sandeman leave shortly for a long holiday in the Eastern States.

Consummating Manage With Soda Water. An Example Which Miscarried. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Consummating Manage With Soda Water. - ? w ~ An Example Which Miscarried. It is a great thing to be able to see the humorous side of life. In every action and. every phase of existence there is something which has a tinge -of humor, though very often temperament or nationality debars one from seeing the lighter side. For instance, what could be more laughable than the recent action of the smug, well-fed lordly personality of the high-salaried Justice Burfi side, in deciding that the hard working railway man was worth £4 a week — the price his Honour would probably pay for a week's cigars. ~ Marriage is often provocative of much merriment, generally at the expense of the nervous bride or the over-dressed male part. Quite a new source of humor cropped up at a recent wedding. The bride, a pretty waitress, who had worked for years at a city tea room, entrusted the preparation of the wedding breakfast to the firm she had known so long. Be it un derstood that she was to pay for everything...
Labour Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
LabQur Notes — \j — ( By 'Spartacus.' ) The Railway Commissioner and the Departmental serangs experi-_ enced a very severe shock when the staff of the Accounts Branch took direct action, the men rightly resented the introduction of a host of regulations forbidding the men to eat fruit during office hours, smoking was only to be allowed for a quarter of an hour morning and afternoon, no visitors or callers per mitted, irrespective of the time a man had been working during the day. The position was soon revers ed, the great Poo-bah had visitors in the shape of a. deputation ready to kick up holy smoke, and the forbid den fruit of direct action was eag erly partaken of. The very respectable and 'Chris- tian' firm of Albany Bell have a monopoly of the tea and pasty on the Golden Mile, the wages paid to the waitress are a disgrace to the firm in question. This state of affaids is being given attention, and substantial increases are Jaeing de manded. The Plasterers, Bricklayers, Mas ons, ...
Belmont Bangs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Belmont Bangs (By 'Solon.') We are still anxious to know wh- Mr. Smith will not try to stop those motor fiends that endanger buuian lives every Sunday on our main road. We must stop them in time. Why' not start at once? Fetch out yer gun, Smithy. A suggestion for our Road Board and the W.A.T.C..— Why not re serve the new road (passing Grove Farm) on race days for horse-drawn vehicles and pedestrians? Now tfiat racing is being resum ed -at headquarters this suggestion should be considered. Why always consider the motor owner? Who will answer this? Why was it that the trees recently planted on the new road were purchased out of the district whilst there are two or three nurseries in Belmont? However, the favoured firm had to buy from one of the local nur series, have the trees delivered mfle6 away, then sent back to Belmont again. But still, we are going for ward.

Fremantle Fragments [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Fremantle fragments The Fremantle Trotting Club moves. Ben Jones, M.L.A., got the Premier to arrange a conference be tween them and the parent associa tion onv Wednesday morning, and legislation is likely to result from it. The Harbour Trust has recently initiated a wise reform by starting to pay on Fridays at noon, instead of the old time of 3 o'clock. Which means that men not working won't now have to hang about half the day waiting for pay. Shipping companies, please copy. They used to talk about the cow cocky enslaving his children. There is a lime-burner named Wharton out Spearwood way who has them beat to a frazzle. He has two daughters helping him burn lime, cheap and economical, which is per haps why that good Australian, Angus McLeod, gets his lime sup plies from him. ? It's a real braw occupation for Australian girls.' Both Mick Cahill and Geo. Dennis hit out the other day on the anti Labour press and its Edwards fund bubble.
