A NOVELIST'S EPIGRAMS. (From "The Romance of Zion Chapel," by Rishard Le Gallienne.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

A NOVELIST'S EPIGRAMS (From " The Romance of Zion Chapel,'' by Rishard Le Gallienne.) It is not a disgrace to a man to be. jilted ; it is to a woman. For a woman to be jilted is for her to have failed as a woman. Sometimes there is more passion in patience than in anything else in the world. A passion that knowd not pity is merely a demaniac possession, and should be taken to the madhouse. If you would safely renounce a joy you had best enjoy something of it first. B enunciation must have something to live on. No woman can help a man to be strong who cannot first make him weak. To be a woman is to be a genius, but to be a clever woman is to be another man of talent. Great men are only nourished on the elements. Woman is an element-all the elements in. one. Earth, air, fire and water meet together in a rose

Their names were Pedro, Isidor Diego, Sancho, Fernando, and Juan; but it is with Pedro and Isidor Garcia alone that we have espesciaUy to con cern ourselves. These two had beet "the twins" from early boyhood. OJ exactly the same height, -they had the same eyes, little moustache, dimplec chin,- and deportment. Only in theil voices were they distinguishable. Thc voice of Isidor was gruff, whereas Pe dro's voice was as amiable as himself.

WOMEN AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

WOMEN AND POLITICS. (By a Woman.) Anotber battle has been fought and: lost. The Franchise Bill has been re- jected by a majority of seven, and such a seven! Te Gods! Surely, my sisters, such a defeat is not very hard to bear? The instinct of self-preservation is very strongly developed in those "gen- tleman who voted against the measure. They know, they felt, that with an ex- tension of the franchise, their political life would be at an end. No more honor and glory, no more little pick- ings from the State purse, which always fall to the share of those who vote on the strong side, strong in power and assurance, but lamentably weak in ability, reason, and sense of justice. Of what use was argument or eloquence in this case? The strong man had made up his mind to have none of it, and he can always rely on the sheep- like support of his sycophantic followers. * * * * What is wanted in public life is that very useful faculty which manages a family and ably directs housekeeping. It is ne...

THINGS NOT GENERALLY KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

THINGS NOT GENERALLY KNOWN 1. That God made the air pure, so that maa should live and enjoy existence. 2. That the Perth Council has so contaminated the atmosphere that exis- tence has become a burden. The peo- ple therefore cannot rejoice in God, while they damn the council. 3. That Sir john Forrest promised a deputation of citizens that this nuisance should cease in two weeks. 4. That another deputation has since waited upon the Hon. Geo. Throssell, who informed the citizens they had proved their grievance "right up to the hilt." There it stays. 5. That a third deputation has inter- viewed the Hon. Minister of Railways, who promised rolling stock, etc Nary a roll yet! G. That the tram line is laid on 3 x 4 jarrah sleepers at -a cost of 2s.- each Market value, 4d 7.

CONCERNING WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

-Ê CONCERNING WOMEN. (£j Chelia.) : There was a monster roll-up ai Mrs.1 AitMn's concert in St. George's Hall the first social event of the past week when a very commendable perform- ance was got through by that lady's pupils. One can hardly err in pre- dicting great things for a slip of a girl named Jean Drummond, who appeared "in a sweet, childish frock of virgin white, and took our breath away with 'her exquisite rendering of Sullivans "Will he Come," and "The Lost Chord," songs which might have been written ex ? pressly for those deep contralto notes. : Mr. Wallace also gave a great deal of . pleasure to his hearers, both, in his duet with Mrs. Aitken and in "Good-night, Beloved" (Balfe). We were all deeply ' disappointed to find that Mrs. Aitken was not billed for anything else that night, but seeing that it was a pupils' I performance we have no right to grumble. ***** From my coign of vantage in the : pretty gallery of the hall I had an ex : eellent view of all and sundry dow...

HOW THE "ODDS" ARE SIGNALLED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

HOW THE "ODDS" ARE SIGNALLED. London "Sketch" writes:-Any rea- der who has ever attended an import- ant race meeting is tolerably certain to have seen and been startled by a weird individual known as a "tic-tac" man. The actions of this curious person can- not fail to attract attention. Directly the numbers go up for a race, and bet- ting on the event opens, the duties of the *?tic-tac" man-who is stationed in the principal ring-commence. First he hauls madly at his left ear, then repeats the operation on his right, and finishes up by tweaking his nose vigorously three times. Calming down somewhat, he stands listening to the cries of the book- makers around him ; but suddenly, and without-warning, begins once more to ill-use himself by- slapping his right cheek, jabbing' himself under the chin, and smacking his by this time perspir ing-brow-in the -manner of a falsely ac- cused hero of melodrama. This queer performance -the., "tic-tac" man .repeats with variations irhtif fee yell of...

TURF NOTES. (By "Young Un.")

Dir Sir,-Being unable to attend the public meeting convened to deal with reform of the electoral law, I am for- warding, as you request, some observa- tions on the subject. It seems desirable that this movement should be directed to the accomplish- ment of definite ends, indisputably just and equitable. A great deal of time has been lost in promiscuous denunciation of the Eleriwral Act, Ipa rimer np to no beneficial resuió. What now is required is a concrete statement of popular dis- abilities, and a clear conception of the remedy, to be followed by a demand for the specific reforms agreed upon.

THESE CHRISTIANS! HOW THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

THESE CHRISTIANS! HOW THEY LOVE EACH OTHER, ' The Glasgow "Weekly Mail" of July 23 says:-"Anexciting and disgrace- ful scene was enacted at St. ThomaS' Church, Toxeth Park, Liverpool, on Sunday morning. St. Thomas has long been noted for. its- high services, and the vicar, Mr. Underbill, appointed Dy the Gladstone family, has hitherto been most extreme in his. ritualism. Mr. George Wise, the Protestant lecturer, with numerous followers, were present on Sunday morning, entering the church during Eucharistic service, and taking possession of seats near the altar. Four candles were lighted on the altar, in- cense was buming, and the vicar clad in Roman vestments, wearing- also a biretta. At various- points of the ser- vice there were jeers' and interruptions,' and when the vicar drank from the chalice loud laughter proceeded from Mr. Wise's followers. After the sermon, which was one of a series and non-con- troversial, hymns were sung. Mr. Wise then rose, and facing the congregation re...

So good, in fact, that there is no more necessity 'for improve- ment in our arrangements sanitary than there is for increased escapes from the Theatre RoyaL According to this new authority it would seem that the bad odours of our'drains are nothing more nor less than creations of the mind : figments of the imagination.

CORRESPONDENCE. THE TRADES AND LABOR COUNCIL AND THE "SUNDAY TIMES." To the Editor "Sunday Times." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. THE TRADES AND LABOR COUNCIL AND THE '"SUNDAY TIMES." To the Editor "Sunday Times." Sir,-The attitude of the Trades and Labor Council in this matter will I am sure, be deplored by all well-wishers of labor, and the contemptible attacks on Mr. Vosper, the most able and consis- tent democrat in the colony, will not raise the council in the estimation of the workers. When such narrow-mind- ed and inconsistent views as those ex- pressed by the deputation that waited on Mr. Lovekin recently, are published as those of the leaders of the Trades Labor Council, it is not to be wondered at that the council is looked on with distrust by many. The uncalled for re- ference to the fact that Mr. Vosper .was about to receive a purse of sovereigns, does not to any fair thinking person, convey a reflection on Mr. Vosper, but on the contrary, is a proof that he has so faithfully and fearlessly carried out his duties as to merit this recognition, and again most people will think Mr. Vos...
