ITEMS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

ITEMS OF THE WEEK. Vanity is still the undoing of the female suasion. What about the men, you ask? Just so, but this story is about a lady. She was 65— the pepper and salt period of life, as it were. She had been trying on new winter's hats in a Rundle street emporium. 'I think this one suits me, don't you?' she eventually said, in dicating a neat, cheap hat that suited her really well. 'Oh, no,' replied the attendant. 'Now if you were a woman of 45 you would per haps look well in it, but this' — here she picked up a very expensive hat that made the dear old lady resemble a yellow bun ornamented with a pheasant — 'this I con sider suits you admirably; in fact it is just the thing for a girl of 35!' The lady bought the latter. There is an economical gentleman in a northern town of South Australia. It is said by his friends that he is really too mean to live, and would die only he keeps himself alive just to save his life. Recently he fell ill, and the doctor order ed him to take seyd...

INTERESTING PEOPLE The Lieutenant-Governor. A Character Sketch. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

I^^^^^^H The Lieutenant Governor. » o A Character Sketch. '^There is. plenty of room at the top. Some of us will be making room for others probably before long,' observed the Right Honourable the -Chief Justice a few days ago, when admitting a number rf gentlemen to the South Australian Bar. We fgel sure we are echoing the senti ment of all people in this State in expres sing the hope that 'the before long' re ferred to by Sir Samuel Way will be many years yet in his case. South Aus tralia's only Baronet has just passed his seventy-sixth year, and he has been on the Bench for 36 years, which is, within four winters, half his life. And there is no reason -?why the distinguished Chief Justice should not continue to wear the ermine and administer justice until long after he has passed his eightieth birthday. The legal profession hope bo at any rate, and if the members of the Bar are satis fied—they are the best judges of his worth —what more is needed? The Chief Jus tice is as vigorous...

Poultry. Farmer in the Best Position. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

Poultry. Farmer in the Best Position. It has been officially estimated that the annual value of the poultry and eggs produced in South Australia amounts to the sum of £650,000. Eggs return the large proportion of £450,000, while the value of the poultry is given as approxi mately £200,000. The climate is well adapted for the production of eggs, par ticularly in the districts north of Ade laide, while poultry may also be grown, to general advantage, the most suitable districts being those south of Adelaide, where the climate is colder, this condition having the effect of promoting the pro duction of flesh. The Sources of Supply.. The eggs, which are worth nearly half a million pounds sterling every year, are principally produced on the country farms, {suburban poultry keepers pro duce considerable quantities, but the supplies from the country districts are the backbone of the business. The farm ers make good money out of their hens, but they could easily obtain more if only they woul...

NOTES FOR WHEAT-GROWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

NOTES FOR WHEAT - GEOWEES. Although the season is opening in any thing but a promising manner cither from the point of vieir of the farmer or that of the pastoralist, still there is time yet for a good season both for the producer of wheat and the producer of wool. Al ways hopeful of the best, the farmer is ^buay in many districts committing to the soil the seed and fertiliser which should bring. him a return in due course. As to the policy of dry sowing there seems to bo a very decided., consensus of opinioc against the practice, but as many farmers point out who have got a large area to put under crop they must get on with the : seeding or else the work will be in hand too late to give any thine of a return. There is some justification for this atti tude, but wherever possible it is desirable for several reasons to refrain from sow ing until rain comes. Best Varieties. The question is very often asked which are the best varie ties of wheat to sow. To answer such a question in anyt...

The Sabbath Aspect. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

The Sabbath Aspect It has been said that we are publish ing . a Sunday newspaper. Well, if to print a paper which a large section of the community may read with profit and without harm on the first day of the week, then we are publishing a Sunday paper; but it is being done in Adelaide with limitations which do Lot apply in the other States where Sunday papers are is sued. Further, 'The MaiT'is the only one of the big metropolitan publications whose doors are closed after ' publication on Saturday night, and are not opened again till Monday morning.

EAST TORKENB Y. POUT ADELAIDE. The spectators at the Norwood Oval witnessed the -first match of the season on Saturday, when East Torrens met the new combination of Pni-f. A-1»lai-1s dtuI Deaf Mutes. The ground was very' hard and scarcely suitable for the winter sport; but both teams put up a keen, hard game, and Port Adelaide were the victors at the close by 10 goals to six. The' Tor- Tens opened by scoring early in the first quarter by Richardson taking a snap, but were soon followed by their opponents. The game was fast all through that quar ter, and when time was called both had scored.. 2 goals. The Ports were more successful in the second quarter, and scored 3 goals to Torrens' one. Ports had been playing one man short during the first quarter, but one of their old players, Connolly, filled the vacancy before half time. In the third and fourth quarter Ports/kept a rapid fire' on the goal, but Hodgetts, who shaped, remarkably well for the first match, let very few through. Torr...

CURRENT COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

CURRENT COMMENT. ; The tragedy of wireless! Recording to the story of the captain of the liena, which was only 20 miles or so from the Titanic when it struck the Atlantic berg, had his wireless aparatus not broken down during the two hours the leviathan was sinking he could have rescued all the passengers on the ill-fated liner. The Senate en quiry shows that there were many vessels in the vicinity, the wireless operators on which were fast asleep, while the two officials on the Titanic were tapping away for help. The most nmagrag allegations, however, are those of the captain of the Canfornian, -who was told by the Titanic to 'shut up, and get out,' and of the' wireless operator on the same boat, the answer to whose question read, 'Shut np. You jammed me when I was working the Cape Race station.' When the steamer Frankfurt asked what had happened the advice was tendered, 'You are a fool; keep out of it.' Perhaps there is an ex planation somewhere of these deep-sea wireless courtesi...

Her sister, Dolly Castles, has also been engag- ed to appear at New York in musical   comedy.           Among Australian singers who have ar- rived in the London musical world is Miss Kate Rooney, the Sydney-side contralto, who can always count her engagements months ahead, and at the present mo- ment has even signed contracts for next year.
