Some Racy Retorts. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 22 January 1915
Some Racy Reterts. Mr. HI. f. Hyndman choosee as "the most spontaneously witty thing ever uttered in English" the reply made to Sir Lewis Morris by Os car Wilde. The author of the "Epic of Hades" was complaining bitterly of what he considered to be an un just disregard of his claims to the poet-laureateship. "It is a complete conspiracy of silence against me, Oscar, a conspi rcacy. What ought 'I to do ?" "Join it I" replied Wilde. WHAT.,HYNI)MAN SAID. -Hyndman himself is liot migifted in the nlmatter :0f. quick word thrusts, At an open-airdleoting he said that people who put up wivth their con dition and are quite apathetic "are devoid of sense."

"But," persisted the iman "the meeting must iecollect the lecturer's words as to the apathetic being lestitute of sense.". .. "I never' sauid t...
The Oldest City. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 22 January 1915
The Oldest City. If you were suddenly asked ta name the oldest city in the wori which is still in a flourishing condi Lion, what would ble ,your' answer Tn nine cases out of ten, the person to whom such a qoery might be pIropounded would bark back tc Egypt, Greece, or Ronm. He would be wrong. Tile oldest city in the worldl is Damascus. ryre and Sidon have crumhled on the shore; Baal I:ec is a ruin ; Palmnyra is buried in a desert; Nineveh and Babylon have disappeared from the Tigris and the Euphrates. DIamascus re mains what it was before the days of Abraham-a centre ,f tradle and travel-an isle of verdure in the de sert; "a presidential capitld," with martial and sacred associations ex tending througil thirty centuries. It was near Damascus that Saul of Tarsus saw the light above the brightness of the sun; the street which is called Straight, in which it was said "he prayed," is still in existence.

Where are the Wages Boards? [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 22 January 1915
Where are theWages Boards? But are the Municipal Councils the only bodies interested ? It seems to us that the Labor organisations should also give their serious attention to the matter, ill view of the drastic'changes which have come with such suendden ness upon the community generally. During the past ten years we have had the privilege of both wages oards and an arbitration court; aod the labor party has persistently, with its hun dreds of disputes, availed itself of both with a view to an unnatural forcing up of wages. Walking dele gates and paid agitators have gone in and out amongst the workers, sowing the seeds of discontent and selfish disregard for employers' interests, until there seemed to be no community of interest between them. And now that the war and drought have brought the position to an acute stage, some of the principal agitators, in the persons of the members ofthe Federal Government, are removing to Sydney, instead of showing their supporters a practical exampl...

Australian Red Cross Society. Voluntary Work for Troops at and going to the Front. Accept a.ything that is &lt;f value all sorts of clothing, foods, comforts, b.oks, tobacco. There is hard:y a busiS, ess which does not supply some thing useful. Of cour e certain articles are more needed. As Australia grows wt ol a d its mills manufacture flAnnel, it is better to make woollen goods than to use cotton etuffs, all of which have to be imported, and so are much more expensive here than in Europe or Ameiicii. The.workersin .these counu tries can supply these more easily and rheaply than in Australia. All articles must be carefully cut, made and finished. Rough seams irri tate the skin, and bad finishing sJon gives way and simply wastes material. Do not try to make great numbers, far bet.ter send a few well-madce articles than many badly made ones. In war time and at busy hospitals there is no time to sort and pick out various sized articles, so all should be made large and loose. ...
A Voice from the Past. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 22 January 1915
A Voice from the Past. It will be seen how prophetic were the words of the late Hion. William Knox, the first member of the House of Representatives for Kooyong, when discussing the then proposed Federal Arbitration Court, nearly 10( years ago: "It is idle to suppose that the proposed Arbitration Court will have only a few disputes to settle, and that a Judge of the High Court will be able to discharge his duties in connection with that tribunal, an4 to also incidentally act as President of the Arbitration Court. There will be, I fear, an immense amount of work for the Federal Arbitration Court to do, because this measuire will have a disturbing effect upon the relations be tween the employers and their workmen."
