He ran Australian wo men down by saying they were all for the frying pan and false teeth. I hardly know what he is driving at, but I think he is no man when he has to stoop to run Australian women clown. Australians never run pom niie women down.

There is one thing to be said about Austra m lian women — it they do have a business of m any kind and their husbands are working, M they do not go out washing besides and M . keep other poor women (possibly widows) I out of work.

Greedy, greedy, greedy; never sat '1 isfied. This is the sort of thi...
