HA! HA! HA! HA! [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 6 June 1919
HA! HA! HA! HA! Capt. Crouch, of Casino, tells the following story of the peninsula winch is worthy of publishing. Shortly after the Gallipoli campaign, and while ;we were in the vicinity, a private came Jup to his comrade.and said, "I'm fed up with everything, but- not so much the mosquitoes and fleas, as the rough: life, and I'd like to get 'back to Aussie." His mate: replied, "! will get you. off for £5." Aussie said, "It's a wager." The comrade answered, "You go to the M.O. and pretend you have lost your speech. " Aussie took his . com rade's advice, and after obtaining an audience from the medical officer,- said to the doctor, "Ha, ha, ha, ha,'' etc. When this series of "IHa's" had gone Qn for about a minute, the_M.O. ordered him for "medicine and duty." Aussie, however, was fed. up', -withi:duty, ' and again approached the M.O.^with a pro longed series, of "Ha, jfra^ ha.Js*" The doctor, after hearing nothing but these from him for some time; ordered his ;re moval to a hospital...
Of Interest to Women. Fashion's Novelties. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 6 June 1919
By Mother o' Pearl ~yrr? Fashion's Novelties. One of fashion's latest ntivelties is an ornamentation which cbnsists of an applique of fere'p£ de chine used on sesrg, to form designs similar to those o printed fabrics. These appliques are embroidered down to the "vfrtio! "with a narrow line of black or colored beads or pearls, according to the tone of the costume. They are extremely effective. Other ideas are embroideries in vege table silk, shining metallic appliques similar to those in vogue in the seven teenth century, and embroideries in mother-of-pearl sequins are also much used by leading Parisian modistes, and give a very rich effect. Collars em broidered and shimmering with thia motherof-pearl fall to the waist, giving youth to the plainest and simplest black gowns. , An advanced decoration for the new est frocks is a seheme of. embroidering in large white. beads. These are sur rounded by circles of. tiny colored f&lt;r iridescent beads in color scheme of the frock,, ...

TAMWORTH. No Town Hall. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 6 June 1919
A Tamworth District Stud Farm. TAMWORTH. No Town Hall. There are rumors that a movement is about to take shape for the purpose of providing Tamworth with a Town Hall, and it is whispered that the aldermen may have a definite scheme to consider in the near future. The town is, for its size and importance, singularly badly off for adequate ac- commodation for large functions. The present scene of municipal activities is confined to the Council Chambers, which are situated in an inconvenient part of the town. These premises are by no means suitable, and do not ful- fil the requirements of an already large population. A suitable building would cost something about £7000, perhaps more. Whether a referendum of the &nbsp; ratepayers will be agreeable to the flotation of a loan, which would in- crease the rating on the unimproved capital value of property by a farthing in the pound remains to be seen. Those who can see ahead and are enthusiastic about the project hold the opinion th...

PRESSMAN'S SUCCESS. It is reported that Mr. John Mac gregor, who has been editor of the Brisbane Courier for a number of years, is to be appointed Associate &nbsp; Editor of the SM. Herald. Thirty years ago this pressman arrived on the Manning from the Clarence to manage a paper started in Taree - The Inde- pendent—the plant of which was sub sequently purchased by the M.R. &nbsp; &nbsp; Times proprietor. After a year at Taree he became editor. Later on he was editor at Cobar and Nyngan of &nbsp; local papers in those towns, after which he was Newcastle representative for the Daily Telegraph. From Newcastle he jpined the literary staff of the same paper in Sydney, and from there he &nbsp; &nbsp; was selected for the highest position in Queensland journalism. His old friends &nbsp; &nbsp; on the Manning will be pleased-to note that he is still ascending the ladder of the Inky Way. While in Taree he was an enthusiastic foo...

Cbe Uoice of the north Voices the Rightful Claims of the Northern and j North-Western Districts of N.S.W. | NEWCASTLE, JUNE 13, 1919. The Seamen's Strike. j The statement issued on Saturday last iii Melbourne by Mr. Justice Hig giils in reference to the strike of sea men was a timely and weighty one, and it was particularly welcome, for it served to strip bare the grievance j dummy which has been set up by the i men's leaders and to expose the ho1.-j lowncss of the pretence that resort to ! the strike weapon was forced upon lUe ' maritime workers through their ina- ; Ability to obtain redress for what they ' declare to be the "wrongs, they are suL:- i fering under from the Federal Arbitra tion Court.

Sensation Mongering in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 13 June 1919
The people of the capital of this State have nothing to be proud of in the displays of large bodies of the popu lace in connection with two recent events! The first" of these' was the bungled Freeman affair, and the second •the shooting of the mad Chinese ■cabi net-maker. In the first .place, the man ner in which the attempted deportation of Freeman was handled by the Defence Department was such as to merit th-3 strongest condemnation. If ordinary common-sense had been used by the of ficials concerned they would have made sure, before placing the individual named on shij>-'board at the outset, that all arrangements had been completed for enabling him to land without ques tion on arrival at San Francisco; but it is nothing short of astonishing that, when he was sent back, steps were not taken to ascertain what objections ex isted to allowing him to go ashore at the American port, and if it was found impossible to remove the obstacles to his doing so, then most certainly he should ...
