SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914
SOCIETY. Though Her Excellency Lady Dcnman is to leave us in a month or two, she still retains unimpaired her keen interest in matters Aus tralian, especially. in anything of an artistic nature. Her Ladyship had young Max Pirani, the clever young Australian pianist, at Govern ment House on Monday, to play a number of selections for her, including some oi his own compositions. Lady Denman expressed herself delighted with the musical abilities of the young Australian, who is but fifteen year? of age. Her Excellency was pleased to know that the young artist was to be sent to Europe, and hoped that his benefit concert on the 21st of March would prove to he a great success. His Excellency the G-overnor of the State and Lady Stanley are at present in tlic midst of a 'busy social weak.

RYAN'S LION. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914
RYAN'S LION. The, Zoo. authorities had given certain direc tions to citizens to enable them' to deal pro perly with animals of the larger growth es caped from the enclosures ; but Kyan was not a ready-witted person. Timmy Ryan was, in fact, a simple soul, who pushed a broom along a certain section of suburban gutterways in the daylight, and after dark had no ambition beyond the performance of certain rhythmic, exercises with a large pewter in Rhomber's pub. Exercise on the horizontal bar, Rhomber called it. Consequently, when Timmy arose in Grig street early on that memorable Monday morn ing, and opened his kitchen door and stepped into the yard, he hesitated on finding himself confronted by a large, hairy animal. , The large, hairy animal looked like a shaggy German pianist on all fours. Ryan had seen such a musician, and recollected iiim at once ; but he was not down on his hands and knees, lapping up the cat's milk out of an old her ring tin. Timtmy. was paralysed for the moment....
THE WHISPERING GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914
THE WHI8PERING GALLERY.: -.Rumour .-already ..-announces w. a. Watt's doom. But rumour was always, a' lying jade. The Corner is apparently prepared to lie much more'-unfriendly, than the Watt - party expects, and a nasty tone is to be put into discussions as soon as Parliament reassembles. This may be. the intention of. the M'Leod..section, and the ■wish of the Labour Party ; but is it likely to prove as embarrassing to. Watt as M:Leod and Elmslie think ? There is no doubt that Young Premier has decided to be prepared lor the worst. • He has; tightened up -elector.il adminis tration, and got the system ready for an appeal to the electors as soon as: the crisis comes. Young Premier has been working on- the basis of an election in October ; but he couldtake it as pleasantly in A|ugust,..ov even July, should Corner revolters m'ake administration impos sible. He stands now: in . entrenched position, for he . can with justice. appeal, to: the Governor for a dissolution, and before he lea...
IN THE HARBOUR CITY. TALK OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
X % , '2 fALK OF THE WEEK. Mtf. Holman has fitted a very heavy yoke round the necks o£ those who earn moderate incomes. The man with 1 he-very large income has, of course, a burden of his4 owfr, but he is better aWe to pay it. The people who, by per sonal exertion, amass .£400, £500 and £600 a year are to have the taxation on their irn'onves. increased oyer 50 per cent. When it is stated, as Mr. Holman states it, the increase appears to be only a little over 30 per cent. The rate of tax has gone up from (id. to Sd. 111 the pound, while the exemption has been lowered 'by £50. But in the case of a man who earns &lt;£600 a year the increase is u5.5 per cent. Under the existing Act he would pay £7/10./. Under the new rates he will have to pay £11 13/4. As* the income' goes up the increase be comes 'less pronounced. The £1000 a year man' Pays an increased tax c£ only 42.3 per cent. It is an extraordinary thing that a Labour Premier and Treasurer should be the man to load the poor...
SOCIAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
SOCIAL GOSSIP. The Dolls' Carnival, the Shakespeare Festi val upheaval, and the benevolent Society ma tinees between them are daily filling the spare passatres and cloak-rooms of the Town Hall with, people suffering from inflated char ityitis. In point of attraction the Shake speare Festival and the Dolls' Carnival are hav ing a close race. Mr. Farmer V/hyte (lion, se cretary of the Shapespeare Society) and dozens of other worthy gentlemen are becom ing quite hectic in their endeavours to prove to people that life in Sydney outside the walls of the Town Hall from 21st to 24th April will be quite unbearable. Inside all will go as "merry as a marriage bsll"—and much more. The biasement and vestibule will be wisely given up into the hands of the refreshment commit tee. In part of the basement will be erected a model of the G-lobe and Blackfriars Theatre, and here the Shakespeare Society and innumer able am'ateur theatrical organisations will hold daily and nightly revel.

MRS. JAMES DYER, HOSTESS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
MRS. JAMES DYER, HOSTESS. A delightful garden party was given by Mrs. .Tames Dyer at her home, "Torryburn," Haw thori^, last Thursday. The change in the wind made the outdoor .function a very enjoyable one. Mrs. Dyer receivefl on the lawn in a Parisian frock of Wedgewood blue ninon, the draped skirt caught up with a tunic sash of deep vieux rose. Round the waist was a basque of Per sian embroidery in the: same tones. A' smart black velvet and lace hat was worn. The after noon was very pleasantly passed in consulting the two excellent fortune-tellers and listening to the strains, of Di Gilio's band. At intervals Piper Morrison rendered some bagpipe selec tions strolling about, the garden. The daintiest of refreshments and ices were served at tables on the lawn, on the verandahs, and in the dining-room. The smart, frocks of the guests, as the different groups dissolved and reformed, were charmingly set in the flower-decked garden and green lawns. Amongst those present were the Lady Ma...

TO REMfcDY THINNESS AND IMPROVt THt FIGURE. Ladies who are thin, scraggy and angular, and lacking in tlfot full, well-rounded develop ment which adds so much to any woman's charm may accomplish wonders in the way of putting on flesh, filling up hollow chocks, necks and shoulders, and developing the figure gener ally by giving a little attention to the ner vous system. When the nerves are weak, the stomach and the other vital organs are the first to suffer. The food eaten is not convert ed into flesh and you become thin, scraggy, anaemic, run down and despondent. The seat of the trouble is the nerves, which direct and control the work of the stomach and liver. They must be strengthened by a proper nerve food, and probably the bnst nerve tonic and flesh builder known is the old-fashioned formula so frequently prescribed bv physic hi! ns, com posed of Joz.

People We Know A Labour Pose. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
A Labour Pose. G-reat outcry is made periodically against the importation of State Governors. In most oases it is raised by the militant section ' of the Labour Party, and is not at all a set tled opinion of the party. It is merely a rather petty exhibition of that contempt for wealth and, the wealthy which the partisans oi Labour think it their duty to aireot. There can be only one reason urged for the abolition of State Governors, and chat is economy ; but there are hosts of major economies waiting to be effected before this minor one calls for at tention. The total annual cost of State Gov ernors is very small, while a Labour argument, used so often in the case ot absentees, may be advanced and the fact pointed out that all the money and a great deal more is spent by the Governor in the State which he governs. But Labjour does not detest State Governors be cause they cost a lew thousand a year. It abhors them in a make-believe fashion because they are generally members of aristoc...

A Hint For the Trades' Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
A Hint For the Trades' Hall. The Eight Hours people are: much concerned about the integrity of their day. The Football Association advertises fixtures ior ljygon-street's particular holiday, and Lygon-stnvt is fiercely protesting, declaring it isn't erickt-i,. Possibly it is not playing the game according to the stricter ethics of sport for nne body to seek to jump another's fixtures ; but some good will come from the Association's action if it awakens the managers of Eight Hours Day to the necessity of infusing some additional in terest into their show. Eight Hours Day now means the usual procession and the usual round of usual sports. The procession lias been going on for close upon two generations, and it re nvalns! practically the same old procession. "Punch" has invited those in command to en liven it by adding the features of a flower car nival so popular in parts of France, Spain and Italy. There is another direction in which the Eight Hours demonstration should t;ike on a di...
"Unclean!" [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
'' Unclean!' Recent disclosures concerning our milk and cream supplies will shock the faith oi those people who still retain some confidence in the purifying effect of legislation. \Ve have been passing Acts for the purpose of securing pure milk for pale people for thirty vears past, and here are indignant reformers shocking our sus ceotibilitins with exactly the same*" abominable stories .of. filthy practices in countrv dailies as raised our hair in the ^i-rhteen Eighties. We are told of trifles li:^ • • and sucking-Digs heing found smothered in cans of cream, which cans are forwarded to the consumer without the smallest consideration for the poor wretch who may eat the gruesome stuff. A deputation from the Warragul Shire Council, which waited on the Minister of Agriculture and Public Health the other day, supplemented the stomach-raising yarns previously told with pretty instances of dogs licking at the oozing cream-cans on country st-ition platforms. We have an enormous mass of l...
Story of a South African Scrim. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
Story of a South African Scrim. Australians were strongly disposed to spread their sympathies pretty thickly on the exiles from South Africa until Mr. G. 1-1. Kendall, organiser of the Amalgamated Society of En gineers of South Africa, opened his head in Lygon streeti one 'evening last week. Many were in clined to think of the expatriated South Afri can strike leaders, as the victims of a peculiar ly Boerish form of tyranny ; but Mr. Kendall has explained how badly the stiikers were treated, and never was an ' explanation more ill advised or better calculated to -throw discredit on the alleged m'artyrs. Beginning; with an as sertion that , the Australian public had got its Snformatibn of the S.'African proceedings from tainted sources, as a result of capitalistic machinations, Mr. Kendall went 011 to state facts. Here are a'few in his own words: "The Government brought in men on motor-cars to break the strike. Sometimes we got hold of the men and the cars, and smashed * the bloom in...

Defence and Democracy. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914
Defence and Democracy. Mr. Hamer Greenwood, M.P., lately a visitor to Australia with the Imperial Parliamentary party, is back in'England telling them about Australia for their own good, and our sincere hope is that his words will ,not be credited, to Australian blow and antipodean egotism, which, however, is very likely. Mr. Greenwood in forms them that in'mattors military we do bet ter in Australia, and have the horse 6en.se to recognise talent no matter where it appears. We have, Mr. Greenwood reminds J. Bull,' two prominent officers, one the son of a shoemaker, the other the son of a policeman. This would Wa practically impossible in England's caste ridden army. "Such men would have no chance at Sandhurst.'' Isn't this a pitif il fact ?
