PAIRING LENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 1 January 1914

PAIRING LENSES. When the two stereoscopic pictures are to be taken simultaneously, it is necessary to use two lenses, which lenses must be an accurate pair. The necessity for this close similarity does not arise from any need for the two pictures to be of exactly the same scale as it will be found that the brain   will receive a combined impression quite perfectly, even if there is a distinct difference in the scale of the images. It is in order that the two lenses may be focussed simultaneously on the one plate that it is important that they should match. If two very similar doublet lenses are available, which are not quite a pair, it is sometimes possible to adjust one to the other, by varying the separation of the com- ponents, by screwing one or both of them a little way out. The plan is quite feasible for a tem- porary purpose ; but if much stereoscopic work is to be done, it is best, of course, to get two lenses properly paired. A simple method of practically pair...

Mr. Hayseed's Egotism. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 1 January 1914

Mr. Hayseed's Egotism. At a recent demonstration on the part of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, held in Wagga, the assembled agriculturists practically declared war on the Rural Workers' Union, the exactions of which are threatening the prospe- rity of farmers all over the country. In the course of a warm discussion, the most eloquent and aggressive of the farmers said : "Who has paid all the increased wages in Melbourne and Sydney ? Who keeps all the men in the stores wearing starched collars while the farmers are harvesting smothered in dust ?" The good tiller did not seem to think an answer neces- sary. The farmer was the hapless man who paid for everything. "Punch" has full sym- pathy with the farmer—he knows the value of the man who plucks wealth out of the teeming earth—"but he knows, too, that such talk as that quoted above is sheer balderdash, and is directed against men whose interests are allied with the farmers, and who are often prepared to fight the farmer's bat...

Approaching Marriages. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 1 January 1914

Approaching Marriages.   The marriage of Mr. Robert Bull, younger son of Mrs. Bull and the late Mr. Joseph Bull, of "Lismore," Bairnsdale, and Miss Alice Hoddi- nott, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Digby Hoddinot of "Bay View," East Bairnsdale, is arranged to take place on 7th January at St. John's Church, and afterwards at the Masonic Hall. Old Scotch Collegians will deeply regret to hear of the death of Charles Hilton Dight at the age of seventy-two. The late Mr. Dight, who resided at Albury, where his death occurred last month, was a son of Mr. John Dight, one of the pioneers of Melbourne, who in the early days owned the flour mills on the Yarra and whose name survives in the title of Dight's Falls. Charles Hilton Dight was educated at the Scotch College, Melbourne, and afterwards entered into pastoral pursuits. He re- sided for many years at Albury, and though he never entered public life he was long known to be one of the most public-spirited citizens of the dis- tr...

HER MAJESTY'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

! HER MAJESTY'S THEATRE. The great spectacular extravaganza, "The Forty Thieves," has settled down into its stride at Her Majesty's Theatre, and is evidently started on a long run, if one may judge by the .manner in which the house * is crowded now that the holidays are over. "The Forty Thieves" is full of big spectacular displays", marches and ballets that are absolutely dazzl ing in their brightness aid movement, and the concluding tableau, the Drums of AH Nations, comes in for special applause. The comedy element is strong, with such experts as Barry Lupino, Edwin Brett, Dolly Harmor and The Three Rubes to keep it goin^, and the so-call ed mis-called pantomime^ :,The Forty Thieves," is nightly greeted with laughter and applause. It will be repeated every evening for many weeks to come.

THE PLAYGOER THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

By "Peter QeAhco." THEATRE ROYAL. Excellent attendances have been patronising the performances of "Monsieur Beaucaire" at the Theatre Royal. The fine presentation of Booth Tarkington's romantic story is no doubt the chief reason for the crowded houses, hut another is the fact that these are the last nights of the Lewis Waller season, and all playgoers are anxious fco see the distinguished English actor and his company in what is, so far as we in Melbourne have been permitted to judge, his best character. As Mr. Lewis Wal ler presents the royal Frenchman he leaves no thing now to be desired, and his Monsieur Beaucaire is one of the most perfectly finished performances that the most exacting of critics could ask for. Although it may be termed a quiet and natural rendering of the character, the actor introduces with artistic skill numer ous touches of contrast, which serve to show the thought and study he lias given to the character. There are, in fact, two Beauflaires, presented to th...

WOOL, GRAIN AND PRODUCE. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

WOOL, GRAIN AND PRODUCE. TUESDAY. The wool sales re-opened yesterday in Sydney after the holidays with offerings of 9000 bales, and will continue Until' Thursday inclusive. Competi tion was very keen, in which Yorkshire buyers were prominent. Good wools maintained their values, but excessive reserves militated against sales. For medium ir.erinos and crossbreds, as well as for lamb's wool, prices were from par to 5 per cent, above the closing rates of the December auctions. The Bradford nt'irket has recovered id. per tb. on crossbred and id. per tb. on merino tops, with an active demand. The European wheat markets have been more or less undrr the influence of the holidays since our last report was published, and Argentine shippers ehese tbrit inopportune moment for pressing sales. Why suoh a course should be nceeasary in face of the estimated reduction of over 30 per cent, in the exportable surplus from that source is not easily understood Possibly financial reasons are the dominant ...

Financial. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

In the financial position in, Australia, there were some adjustments of signifioance during the year 1913. Those adjustments, without exception, were in the direction of affording greater advantages than heretofore, to lenders. It had become nn accepted supposition that for •some mysterious reason nr other the States of 'the Commonwealth should be conceded points when it came to a question of "raising the ■wind" in London. That idea may have gain ed ground on the same basis as that adopted by the "good customer," for that the Austra lian States have been for many a long 3-ear 'first-class patrons of John Bull's lending coun ter cannot be. gainsaid. It has been unofficial ly computed that last vear we took no less than £27,000,000, or thereabouts, from the London market : but the altered conditions to which we have referred have brought home to the borrowers the all too patent fact that there is no preference policy that operates to the exclusive advantage of tho States when they app...
