A LADY'S LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
A LADY'S LETTER My dear Mary,—No need as yet to ever think of going away for the Summer. The clerk of the weather has been very lenient with us up to now; but perhaps it is ill-advised of me to call attention to the fact that it is still nice and cool; per- chance there may be something very warm in store for us later on. However, as the song says, whether it's cold or whether it's hot, we've got to weather it whether or not. Mrs. Arthur Francis, of Mullingar, with her family is leaving next Wednesday for the coast. She has taken a furnished house at Apple- cross, where the summer months are to be spent. Mrs. F. L. P. Sawell, of Boulder, with her two daughters, is return- ing to West Australia from England, where she has been living for the past two years. Mr. Charles Cutbush, of Kalgoor- &nbsp; lie, with his bride, is on his way back from the Eastern States. They will most probably come straight to the goldfields. &nbsp; Mr. L. C. Noland, of Kalgoorlie, &nbs...

THE " Sesterr rqu s] PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, DEC. 5, 191s. SUMTUARY AND OTHER TAXATION. The Premier, Mr. Frank Wilson, gone to - the financial conference in Melbourne, has left his taxation proposals behind him; and has left, too, an uneasy -feeling in respect to the proposed impost on the retail! price of "luxuries." It- is not easy to .define a:luxury. One may say it is something that is not a neces sity; but then. what is a necessity I That depends upon. circumstances, environment, . and epoch; for the luxury of one century is the neces sity of the next. The march i f: civilisation is mainly the progress of converting luxuries into .necessi ties. The schedules of Mr. Wilson's bill-if it ever gets into committee of the House, which is doubtful- will provoke some: -warm debates;! Of course, all feminine electors are quite agreeable. that smokes and drinks, and all that pertain lhereto, should be classed as- luxuries, and deserve to be taxed. "But what about fashions, g...
