Praitle About People [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

Praitle Our old friend Charies Bailey, spiritualistic medium,; .has run up against the sceptic^ in Sydney, and it looks as if another bold spiri tualistic fake has been played out. Mr. Bailey was producing spirits in the dark when tlie un believers trapped him. . It is peculiar, by-the way, that the spirits must always have dark ness. If mediums can materialise the ghosts of the departed, why no.t in the open day. Of course, there will be a scoie ol reasons advanced, but the fact remains that tricksters love darkness., and there is ncthing but childish human superstition to account . for !the belief that spirits go only in darkness. Mr. Bailey's spirits _' were found to be made erf line gauze, and lis had them under his coat when the lights were turned, up. There is a simple way whereby the mediums may convince tne most jscopticai. Let one 01 them, induce the. spirits uniiei flis control to bring to Melbourne to-night a copy of this morning's London "Times," and none of us will doub...

People We Know An Unadvertised Leader. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

An Uuadvertlsed Leader. Anybody who wants a thankless, hopeless, powerless political post should, apply for the leadership of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly- The Victorian Legislative Assembly' is intended; of course. In other State Parlia ments the Opposition^ leader is a marked man. He really leads the party, and i£ he is not ac claimed, a great leader with the Premiership "Waiting for ihim just over the political horizon he is denounced freely as a c'°£ ii the- wheels, and the: only true and' suflicient leason-why the party leads is! not in power, in either case there is fame, notoriety, publicity, call it what you will, attached to the position, and onc_ of -these thr<5e things is what every politician •wants. But stop the ordinary man in the street in "Viictoria and ask him the name of the State Opposition leader, .and he will stare at you blankly. Then he may nominate Mr. M'Leod or Mr. Prendergast.

THE FIXING BATH AS A REDUCER. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

THE'-FIXING BATH AS A llBDUCEtt. . Two German investigatoi's, Stenger and Kern, whoso work is recorded in "Das Atelier," have been .studying: the enfepblement of the image by the prolongfd' action of the fixing bath. With a bath which is highly concentrated and strongly acid tho effect at first*is comparable, in the way it attacks the respective intensities, to that of ammonium persulphate. Afterwards it becomes comparable to Parmer's reducer, bein.; subtract! v'e, or reducing by preference the more feeble intensities. It is possiblo to utilise ■•the fixing bath as a reducing agent, not differing essentially from the others, save for tho hlowness of its action. If the question of tinw may lie considered as secondary, one may work with baths up to about 10 per cent., to which is added a small quantity of bisulphite, in order to avoid a colouration of the image.

A few correspond ents writing to one qi the morning dailies com plained "of tihe miserable sport wh ch consists in shoomng dazed birds sprung !"rom a trap, and the Chief Commissioner of Police was induced to take notice. He sent two of his officers to watch proceedings, take notes, and report «on the momentous question, "Is pigeon-shooting cruel?" That report' has come'to hand, and the collaborateurs have come to the conclusion that on the whole pigeon-shooting is u genteel sport practised by feeling gentlemen, and one that has so far provoked no complaints from those 'in whose interests the opposition was aroused. The pigeons have said nothing. They do not sesm to mind. Mr. Salisbury's officers declare in writing that llie fiOO pigeons used in the match they witnessed were treated in "a humane manner."

More Tote. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

More Tote. The VAge" trots out the tote again, and advises a'loud and demonstrative agitation on the part of those who favour the machine in preference to the man as a betting medium. If this advice is acted on, we can have the tota lisator at. Flemmgton for next Cup. The :\vorked-up agitation in connection with Mel bourne's gas supply provides a fair criterion of what deliberate and concerted work will do ; but the totalisator agitation would be a much more interesting and appealing venture. More people are interested in the tote than in the gas-meter, and their interest is much keener. Let them come out into the open and make a noise about the matter, and Parliament will he sure to take notice. To induce Parliament to take notice you have to shout at it. Parlia ment is rather dull and more than a trifle deaf, and it is only disturbed by those who bellow. Hitherto all the bellowing about the tote has been done by the parties opposed to it, and they are trained makers of loud noises...

Rector Shields, of ' Sydney, gives five Lenten lectures to men lit. Si. Paul's. We relish the title of the last one by far the. best. It |is\"The Church and Democracy."

SYDNEY SHOWS [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

SYDNEY SHOWS In all Mr. Knight's b % repertoire of char acters there is none—with the simple exception of Monsieur Beaucaire—wfilch fits him with such glove-like smoothness as that of Napoieon. He has something Napoleonic about him in appear ance and build. It was so when Mr. Knight first played "A Royal Divorce" some years ago. Since then age has helped to make the actor up for the part, and he now makes a bet ter Napoleon than ever. It is-one of Mr. Knight's favourite parts. He played the role in the original production in Australia- He was in London wihen the piece was revived with much flourishing of trumpets a couple ol years ago, and was offered the part there, lie rcifused, because lie was already booked to play another part at another theatre ; but it must have caused him no end of disappo ntment that he had to decline. The piece was revived at the . Theatre Royal on Saturday night. It was a notable revival. Most nf the old faces were missing. Mr. William Ilawfcrev, who play...

DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENT A rfOiN. Food fermentation is the cause of all the dis comfort and pain dyspeptics suffer. It does not neoessarily follow, however, that in order to obtain relief they must deny themselves the en joyment they derive from eating so-called in digestible luxuries. The most satisfactory me thod of overcoming the difficulty would be to prevent the fermentation from occurring at all, and this can be cone by a very simple means. It must first be explained that most of the foods we eat contain a "ertain quantity of acid-forming elements,, and indigestible foods, of course, contain a larger proportion. When these foods are eaten,' the acids collects, irri tates the walls of the utomnch, and causes the food to ferment while it is digesting. This fermenting food also gives oft gas which dis tends the stomach, causing that full, uncom fortable feeling so often noticed after . eating. The root of the trouhle is the acid fermenta ...
