Mt. Lawiey Murmurs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
Mt. Lawiey Murmurs Rumored that a big Eastern firm are looking for a suitable site in Mt. Lawiey for a large business. Two clever young electricians. Hynes and Cowan, are building up a fine trade locally. Mt. Lawiey seems destined to be the largest and busiest suburb cf Perth. Another Prahran in a short period. Wallish and Delves are two good all-round men. Watched them ge*- ting their billiard saloon fixed up; fixing clocks and doing repair stunts polishing, etc., was like mothers milk to them. . Badly needed: The double tram 'track from Walcott-stret to the ter minus. Save the banking up of cars at the junction. Look up Thornton Bros, if your bike or motor cycle goes on strike.
MILITARY ATROCITIES. EXPOSED IN U.S.A. Washington, Oct. 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
MILITARY ATROCITIES. EXPOSED IN U.SA. Washington, Oct. 14. The Department of the Navy has issued the confidential correspond ence regarding the killing cf Haitian natives. The documtnts ~hcw that' in 1919 Major-General Barn-rt, ex commandant of the United States . Marine Corps, reported that the evidence of a court martial indicat ed the indiscriminate idling of na tives by American marines fcr some time. Major-General Barrett as serted that the Marine Corps was lacking sadly in its appre nation of right and justice, and stringent or ders had been issued to prevent a repetition of the abuses man.t-'oned. The American newspapers are amaz ed that the report of the abuses has been kept secret so long. The military machine wo*ks just the same in all countries. You call any troublesome persons bandits, Shin Faners, Bolsheviks, Agitators, etc., and then get your swaddies to shoot or bayonet them. If Austra lians are asses enough to let .the Brass Hats get control, they de serve, and will ...
SENSATIONAL CHARGES. ILLICIT LIQUOR TRANSACTIONS IN AMERICA. Chicago, Oct. 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
SENSATIONAL CHARGES. ILLICIT LIQUOR TRANSAC TIONS IN AMERICA. Chicago, Oct. 14. An inquiry is being made into some sensational charges which involve a large number ^-f promin ent men, including some prohibition officers, in illicit liquor transactions throughout the country, the total volume of these being valued at about 3,000,000 dollars. The activi ties of the persons in questfoh ar© said to extend to New York, Cleve land, and other laree rities You can bet your bottom dollar that these officials and prominent men were of the class who howled 'German Gold' at every one who differed from them during the big scrap. Plenty of this tribe in Aus tralia. The right crowd to pro tect them are still in power here. When ^we really get the facts about the grafts worked here in wheat, butter, and other 090IS, some of our gore spilling (by deputy) pa triots will be feeling their nerks, wondering whether a rope might chafe them.
WILLING WAITRESSES WORRY WOWSER. Flustered by Fierce Females. Sweet Sheilahs Secure Success. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
WILLING WAITRESSES * WOBBY WOWSER. — u— — Flustered by Fierce Females. Sweet Sheilahs Secure Success. ? r\ ? ? \j ? Albany Bell must have had a pbunny feeling under his waistcoat one night last week. He had to face a flock of waitresses employed by him at the Cafeteria. They considered that stopping their pay if they took sick was over the odds. Albany Bell, of course, is one of the smug pietists who always prate Law and Order. Meaning, of course, when the Law was his way, and he could do the ordering. Be ing, of course, a true Christian gen tleman, he has been folowing the fashion of the rest of the Kerristian employers. Docking the wages of. girls if illness caused their absence from work. Naturally, being a gentleman, he gave the other girls who did the .extra work more pay (I don't think). Of course, being a fair man he also doesn't draw his pay when sick of unable to attend. Dicken ! The long hairs appear to be get ting wise to their rights, and can put up a jolly good fight fo...
THE MEAN "WEST AUSTRALIAN." [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
THE MEAN ''WEST AUSTBA UAN.' A five-line paragraph is* all tiat can be spared for a wonderful re cord of effort by the loud nuathed harracker for poor Belgium. The proprietary ot the 'West Australian' should be heartily as hamed of it&elt for the miserably mean fashion it dealt wuh the Pap ular Girl Competition recently held in Perth in connection with the Ug lies stunt to raise f.7iw\ tni- +1^ Children's Hospital. The 'West' never lets itself forget that when an appeal for money is made it gives a hand in the initial stages by its plunderous charges for advertis ing, and as the effort goes along it somehow loses interest in the pro ceedings, especially when the adver tisements are cut out.. A striking example of this policy of 'Help the Kiddies' has been forcibly brought under our notice by our reading in a five-line paragraph the result of the Popular Girl Competition re cently held. Dismissed in five lines the little kiddies must reckon that there is little thanks to expe...
The Ladies Section WHo's Where [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
The Ladies Section I WHo's Where . We feel that we should be lacking in courtesy if we had failed to no tice and commend the wonderful ef iort put up by Miss Queenie Levy in her recent victory as the popular girl of the dancing classes of the metropolitan area in their effort to help the Children's Hospital.^ In congratulating the young lady, her parents, helpers, and especially Miss Doris Melville, we feel sure that the amount raised to her credit — over £70Qr-is something to be proud of. andj something that merits mere thanrthe half-dozen lines the mignty thunflerer of W.A., the 'West,' de voted to the result. The competi tion raised nearly £1,500, and we feel sure Mirror readers realise the am ount of hard work that was neces sary for the young lady mentiontd to put in to achieve the victory by 85,000 odd votes. That the Chil dren's Hospital needs enlarging there is no doubt, and as 'the am ount of £7,000 was needed, the chil dren in the effort referred to have done wonderfully w...
Friday Night Closing MOFFATS PROVE PRACTICABILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
Friday Night Closing -^^ ? MOFFATS PROVE PRACTIOA BHJTS. There are people who are trying to show that the curtailment of the hours of trading on Friday night will be to the detriment of the public. A sample of their fatuous argument is contained in a circular over the signature of J. Lea Holt, - by a body calling itself the Freman tle Business, Men's Association. The circular states: 'The present condi tions of trading were adopted in tie interests of the general public, and ' in particular the principle of its late shopping night once per week 'was continued to enable those, who by * we nature or tneir employment, were prevented from doing their shopping at any other time. There are a large number of people in and around both Perth and Fremantle who are employed in their various avocations during the day, and un-* , less the one late shopping night is retained, will find it impossible to obtain their various requirements, without loss of income from the necessity of leaving their w...
PERFUMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
PERFUMES. Tb« too free use of perfumes about the person has been avoided for many years, and held inadmis sible in good society, the merest hint of a faint odour being all that was possibly allowed. Recently this edict of good taste has not been so strictly regarded, and such per fumes as violet and sandalwood, both of them expensive ones when pure, together with heliotrope, are somewhat in favour again. It is quite likely that the very general wearing of large bunches of violets has led the way to this. It is not easy to eradicate the love of perfumes anyway, for the nerves made to appreciate them will always demand satisfaction, and since the race, civilised or un civilised has existed, the love of perfume has existed, too. Even animals are sensitive to perfumes, and it used to«be said that one of the helps of the great horse tamer. Rarey, was a bunch of violets. One of the French monarchs — Louise Quinze we think — used a dif ferent perfume for every day of the year, although som...
"CARN BREA." [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
'CARN BREA.' Overloking the Swan, at Kirk ham Hnl Terrace, Maylands, is 'Cam Brea.' Nurse Weaver's de lightfully situated Maternity Hos pital. It commands a splendid view from its position of the coun trv for miles around, -and has a first charge upon the sunshine in Win ter and the cooling breezes of Sum mer. The accommodation has been laid out on a generous scale to meet the requirements of clients, and is of a superior quality. We are assured by our special reporter that 'Cam Brea' is a delightful place for a rest on occasions, and that Nurse Weaver knows how to make her clients at home. Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Fraser, who returned to Perth by the s.s. Ka toomba, have gone to Bridgetown for a few weeks. Why is Rees, Chemist, Fremantle, called the Royal Chemist? Because there is always a (Miss) Prince there. Len at Fremantle should be care ful not to keep Connie out late, as she is very susceptible to colds. Mr. Wheeldon, of Albany, has been in Perth in order to meet his son, Mr. Mur...
Australia a Great Manufacturing Nation A LITTLE SERMON ON LOCAL INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
Australia a Great Manufacturing Nation A LITTLE SERMON ON LOCAL INDUSTRY. ? \J—r The lover of Australia, wishes to see her become prosperous and self contained. Most of the native born and many who have made this country their home, wish to obtain this ? object. They realise that no country can be come great without manufactures. They know that the more varied the scope of industry is, the better the chance of providing for Austra lian born, as well as the overseas immigrant. It is impossible to keep* skilled local men, or trained immigrants, un less the industries they understand are here and can absorb them. It is not only necessary to estab lish the basic industries; it is essen tial also to possess secondary indus trie if a nation is to be self contain ed. Naturally the Australian well wisher wonders why wool should not be cleaned, dyed, and woven here, not only in sufficient quanti ties for Australian needs, but to en able us to export the finished ar ticle to other countries. ...
Garden Gossip [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
Garden Gossip (By 'Omer.') The welcome spring showers dur ing the early part of the week have been of unestimable value to gar deners. Plants of all kinds showed signs of depression wfth the advent of the warmer weather; but the re lief due to the change has been vei- - apparent. The soil being in a warm condition,- all plant life has responded in no unmistaken man ner to the recent spring showers. Keep plodding along is the advice to pur readers. Whilst the rain has been a great blessing, it must be remembered that weeds have re ceived a fresh lease of life, and we must repeat the advice to keep the Hoe going. Many people imagine that Euro pean vegetables cannot be grown during the hot summer months, but this is a great fallacy. The Chin ese gardeners supply the towns with all kinds of vegetables, except per haps cauliflowers, during the whole of the Slimmer. It is therefore clear, by constant work, plenty of manure, and water, and some shade for seedlings, most vegetables can be p...
Sub-Rosa THE BELLS OF FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
Sub- Rosa ? *. THE BELLS OF FBEMANTLE. The bells they ring out merrily, hear what they say. Poor Connie is sobbing her heart out to-day, For some one has stolen her puppy away, Poor Connie, poor Connie, poor little doe Trav. A rumour is rife, but perhaps you have heard, Joe Allen has plighted his honour able word. He'll not make a third in the forth coming fight. For to spat up the votes he agrees is not right. He'll leave all the honours to Kissey so tall. Between us — he can't like his chan ces—that's all. A journal we know with a scurrilous page. That causes some people to fume and to Tage, Must surely have thought it were better to hide. For last week this piffle was printed — inside : The proudest of men in the Port so I'm told, Now wears on his match chain a medal of gold. The' clerks 'now all say he's a dab at the game, You surely must know him, Bill Kitson's his name. » The mate on the 'Borderer' fell a big whop. When wharfies decided the work for to stop. His written apolog...
ROBBING THE TECH IN-STRUCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
ROBBING THE TECH. IN STBUCTOBS. The part-time instructors at ;tbe-- Technical Schools, amongsl whom are some returned soldiers, are get ting a very poor deal from the Ed ucation Deartpment. These men are doing very excellent work at a small remuneration. During the visit of the Prince of Wales they were forced to take a week's holi day for which they received no pay — the loss of which, particularly to the returned men, who relied on the few shillings they earn as teachers to supplement their small pensions, and so support their families, was a serious one. But it didn't finish there, for whilst the Civil Service and teachers were on 'strike for a three-weeks' period,' some few weeks back, the technical instructors were forped to take another holiday from their pay. Four weeks' pay lost through no fault of their own. Not unnaturally they sought the Minister for Education, and stated their case to him. Colebatch. look ing for the easiest way out, at length told them he would let them...
INITIATIVE AND ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
INITIATIVE AND ENERG7. Initiative and energy are precious qualities: they are as valuable in. a community as radium is as a force. No wise and public-spirited man wants to destroy them, though he knows that they must be harnessed and guided to become productive of good. He knows that the worth jof a community is measured, not by population statistics, but by ? the number of people in the community who have initiative and energy and are willing to devote these to the common good. Man- caught a simple lamb. She was a hot young chicken, So when he skites how good she is, His mates all .whisper 'dicken.' Mary had a little pea, She watered it so well, That now 'tis full of lovely bloom?, Of nice and luscious smell.

Wingies and Stumpies [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920
Windes and Stumpies (By 'Stumpy.') The -war is comfortably over for many sections of the community. Indeed, the profiteers, during the respite of demanding cheers, can complacently view the war years ? when hejthinks of bis bulging bank] balance. The Wingies and Stum- 1 pies can recall no such pleasant I memories. They are the Ixont-une men.' The men who have tasted the hell of war on the battlefield, and the hell of pain in hospitals from which* they emerge not to find all made smooth and easy for them, but to start again the battle of life under adverse conditions. Often, very often, finding it nearly impos sible to obtain emploj'ment, even from those business men who pat ted them on the back when they went, fit in bodily health and strength, to fight the hardest battle of life. Much more could 'be said on this subject, and incidents quot ed, biit the 'Wingies and Stumpies' have organised themselves into the Maimed and Limbless Men's Asso ciation.

PLAY 2. MANNHEIM'S DREAM. A Dramatic Sketch* in One Act. Prologue: It was Saturday night when -he was took, Just hark how the mourners yell! With his sins at his throat, he jib bered and shook, As he looked in the eyes of hell. For a ghastly crew come up two by two, And all in a line they stand; As nice as they might and they bow polite, With their bloody heads in their hands. (The scene is a large and comfort able office of a big city firm, furnish ed with 3-inch deep arm chairs, so deep that as everything is quiet in the half light you would think no onewas in the room, but for th*j heavy cigar smoke. As your eyes become accustomed to- the gloom (an effect that any stage mechani cian can produce, by gradually in creasing the stage lighting).
