KEEP TO THE LEFT AN IDIOTIC INNOVATION. A MANIA FOR MEDDLESOMENESS— AFFLICTS KOLTCHAK, KONNEL & CO. REASONS FOR REVERSION TO STANDARD PRACTICE— STATED BY "CIVIS." [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
KEEP TO f HE LEFT AN IDIOTIC INNOVATION. A MANIA FOR MEDOLESOMENESS— AFFLICTS KOLTCKAK, KONNEL & CO. REASONS FOR REVERSION TO STANDARD PRACTICE STATED BY 'CIVIS.' 'Civis' writes: — Several weeks' experience has suf ficed to prove that the new 'Keep to the left' broom sweeps no cleaner than the old 'Keep to the right' one. In fact, until the Police Department is more compe tently handled by Commissioner Koltchack Connel— or somebody else — little good is Ukely to result from the transfer of the control of traffic from the Council to the 'cops.' Had the innovation been at all successful, busy citizens .would have hailed it with delight, even though, in principle, 'keep to the left' is a bad rule. But it has not mate rially influenced the habits of the 'footpath hog,' aiid, as the 'keep to the right' instinct of the habi tual respecter of civic orderliness dies hard, confusion is, if possible, more confounded than ever. No doubt tlie dense-heads at Koltchack Castle will snort o...
Station's Fruitful Speech A Correspondent Butts in. With Some Candid Comment. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
Mahon's Fruitful I Speech I A Correspondent Butts In. 1 With Some Candid Comment. 1 'Protestant' writes- — .?« Seems to me that Mahon'e epeedifl which caused such consternation i3 the National Cabinet, was merejW out. of form. If, for instance tlifl lurid phraseology contained :ii« * Mahon's platitudinous outburst hafl hfifitj utilised for denouncine i&9 A.L.P.. and had fallen from the Uffl of W. U. Hughes, the Tory dailiifl would have applauded a 'StirrugH Speech, by Prime Minister,' or 'IfflB Hughes Talks Straight to the AX.™ Disloyalists.' -? As it is, the Tory tripe-wraps a«M screaming with indignation.

CARN BREA." [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
'CARN BREA.' Overtaking the Swan, at Kirk bam Bill 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 try for miles around, and 'has a first charge upoa 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 ? *re 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. .? *« 'My son,' said his father solemn ly, 'When you see a boy loafing about the street corners at all hours, what place in life do you suppose he is fitting himself for?'

W.A SOCIETY OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
W.A. SOCIETY OF ARTS. The ''West Australian Society of Arts' held an exhibition in St. George's^ Hall-during the week. A large collection of oils, water-colors and cartoons was viewed by a fair ly brisk stream of visitors, and the Society, we understand, are pleased with their effort, which is the first since the commencement of the war. The exhibits were, to be candid, of uneven merit — too uneven. We have a high opinion of the So ciety's object— the cultivation of the latent artistic tastes of the public, and their committee in cludes a number of artists capable of advancing that objective. We fear, however, that they have not taken themselves -seriously enough; they have failed to pay themselves the deserved compliment of regard ing themselves as a first order so ciety — not as countrv town mutual admiration society. They have fail ed to appreciate the fact that Perth deserves a first-order Arts Society, and is possessed of sufficient artistic taste and enthusiasm to respond to o...
Open Letterettes TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM. No. 2—To the Inspector of Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
Open Letterettes TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM. No. 2^-To the Inspector of Ma chinery. Dear Inspector, — When do you attend to your duties? Or do you attend to them at all? Ask us, and it's the lat ter. Are you aware, sir, .that lifts — hydraulic, electric, mechanical and otherwise— are amongst your cares? It would appear hot. The Mirorr has received informa tion about more than one lift that is not in a safe condition. Here's a sample of our communications: — 'The lift well is too long for the range of the machinery It can not go up to the top landing, nor down, to the bottom one, without straining the capabilities of the hoisting apparatus^ — a fact attested by the violent jerks and jumps that almost invariably accompany any attempts to reach these levels. Not only is this so, but the safety dut ches, which are supposed to hold the cage in position should any ac cident occur, are out of order.' Mr. Inspector, this is no idle charge. The Mirror knows this lift, and is fairly certain that...
Et te Brute [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
Et te Brute The 'Westralian Worker' says this: 'The 'Sunday Mirror,' a contem porary in the cause of Labour,, prides itself upon having 'made its mark' by the mere fact that East ern papers, including the 'Argus,' re printed from it. Brothers, it is the stuff that the 'Argus' WON'T PRINT that is of value. That's the stuff we like you for. More of it! Still more of it!'. Our best advice to our esteemed contemporary is to learn- to rvad. The 'Argus' was never mentioned in the article in question, but two other papers were. Of course, it doesn't matter, as verv few people will have seen the 'Worker's' gfer bled. paragraph who had not al ready seen the original. And our best advice to those few is. likewise, to learn to read — The Sunday Mir ror!

SINGERS SWEAT SNOBS. Pure Profiteering. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
SINGER'S SWEAT SNOBS. ? V ? Pure Profiteering. The apologists for the Fat man calling themselves newspapers often ask in a pained sort of way 'Where are these profiteers?' The Price-fixing Commission apparently can't find them. So in a spirit of helpful aid. the 'Sunday Mirror' proposes to locate one of them. Then we shall eee just how promptly and drastically the dailies and ike Commission will deal it out to him' or it. Perhaps. Singer's Sewing Machine Cov. have at present almost a monopoly of machines and parts used in the boot-making and repair trade. Traders using their machines mut\ use their needles. Singer's supp'ij wholesale houses with needles at 9s. per 100 — a trifle more than Is. a dozen. It seems to be an tinder f-lccd thing that in order to be able to obtain these needles they inust be sold at 2s. 6d. per doz. or a -little over 20s. per 100. One wholesala warehouse we un derstand had the temerity to sjsll at 2s. per doz., but . soon discovered its error. A boot-repair...
TICKET ATROCITIES. By a Would-be Booker. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
T1GKET ATROCITIES. By a Would-be Booker. The Railway arrangements — on holidays particularly-1— at the, ticket selling windows passeth understand ing. . At the Beaufort-street entrance, folks had to fight to get their tickets, hundreds being push ed and crushed in a disgraceful fashion. Why in the name «f heaven they don't get another win dow at work outside on the bridge is another mystery. After surviv ing the wreck, there wa6 another scramble for the train; and first class ticket, holders get jammed into brake vans. The major-general in charge of the cash and tickets is handicapped greatly by the crude ar rangements for giving change and holding the cash. Why. even the little suburban shop can run a cash register these days, and it is surely up to the Railway Department to instal a moderns system. — Yours, etc., FIZGIG.
ANTI-AUSTRALIAN SENTIMENT. insidious Teaching in State Schools —Imperialistio and Jingoistic Propaganda—Flag flapping, False hood, Fables, and Fudge. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
ANTI-AUSTRALIAN SENTIMENT. Insidious Teaching in State Schools —Imperialistic and Jingoistic Pro paganda—Flag flapping, False hood, Fables, and Fudge. Dear 'Mirror,' — Last week there was the usual one-eyed opposition in certain quarters in Parliament to the Education Vote.. Thinking and genuinely patriotic portions of the community are likely to disagree, ? rather with the purposes for whicii that vote is, and has been, mainly devoted, namely, the insidious sup pression of anything, and everything that tends to awaken, and arouse in the children a lore and respect for Australia, and a healthy and sturdy spirit of self-reliance in the nation, rather than the amount. Instead of being trained to become 'useful citizens of a great and free country, and to regard the concerns, affairs, and welfare of that coun* try as being the first object of con^ siderati.on on all occasions, they are taught to regard a far distant chunk cf land in the northern hemisphere as Home, and Australia, conve...
PRICE FIXING. Butter Supplies. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
PRICE FIXING. Butter Supplies. They don't tell you in the dailies why butter prices are falling. In their greed the Grease Ghouls have stored up supplies hoping to make constantly increasing profits. But the people are not using so much butter. Margarine is just as good, and cheaper. So the profiteers are tryng to get a Bill through Parliament to cripple the Margarine mob. At the same time they are forced to lower prices as butter will not keep for ever, and the over-eeas market is glutted. Stop eating butter as much as you can, and fry £Ee fakirs in their own fat.

North Perth Nomenclature Pars About Parsons and Politicians. Rubs and Rubbish about the Ribs of Rosemount. The new picture palace opened last night 'f'tis should be instru mental in providing social recreation and keeping money in the cuburb. Pity the Government has neither the brass nor the brains to dupli cate the tramline round the Bose inoun^ corner. The time lost by cars waiting their turn could well be saved, and they could be used on other runs Talking about trams, isn't it about time some move was aiade locally to have the tramline extend ed along Acgove-street, and^ say, along Charles-street? This locality is now well populated, and a tram service is badly needed. ''Modern Errors— The One Big Onion.' was the title of a sermon recently displayed on a local Church aorice-board.

ALL IRELAND SINN FEIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
ALL IRELAND SINN FEIN. 'All Ireland has- gone Sinn Fein in the last year,' Richard Croker said torx representative of the New York 'World.' 'Everybody in Ireland is Sinn Fein now,' he added. 'It surprised me to see- how general isi&e growth in sentiment for absolute indepen dence. I find many people rabid Sinn Feiners who were anything but that .a short time ago. 'How about these people? They are mostly Unionists, surely,5' I £aidv looking around at the fashionable sporting crowd all about us. (It was at the Leopardstown races). 'Don't you believe it. They are just as Sinn Fein as any one. To be Irish is almost the same thing to-day as to be Sinn Fein.' These dirty Irish. Just fancy them wanting to own their own country. What brave and gallant men they are when they fight for us. But when they fight for themselves 'ah, that's different.'
A Too Zealous Bailiff. ILLEGAL PRACTICE AT FREMANTLE CONDONED BY LONG HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 14 November 1920
A Too Zealous Bailiff. ILLEGAL PRACTICE AT FRE MANTLE CONDONED BY LONG HABIT. Sometimes a hideous habit be comes a custom or a convention; and once this has happened to it everything is just right; that ac counts for many people's conserva tism, and is the only excuse that can be offered for certain unplea sant and illegal seizures of goods in the Port in recent years. The -bailiff is never a very popular man, and .generally receives that oppro bruim that rightfully belongs to the. people who employ him to get value for money owing— goods— a pound of flesh — anything. Particularly hateful is the pre sence of the aforesaid 'bum' in a case in which the sole people from whom goods are to be violently seized are a woman and six young children, aged from 14 to three years. The husband in the case was away in the country — trying to obtain work* and sending his family a few shillings from time to time as he could obtain work at the no toriously poor wages paid by most farmers. An order of...
