GO PROM HOME KOR NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 28 October 1916

GO FROM HOME FOR NEWS. E. S. Brown, a prominent member of the trade in Melbourne, interviewed at Detroit (U.S.A.) during his present trip, s=:d .— 'At the outbreak of the war many predictions were heard there to the effect that motor cycle sales would fall off in Australia. As a matter of fact, however, there was only a temporary check, after which the business has grown up much stronger than before. The sale of Ame rican machines has made especial gains, due partly to cutting down of manufacture of motor cycles in England, but largely to the fact that American construction meets Australian require ments to better advantage. Much trouble was experienced with English rims being too light, English frames not strong enough to stand the pounding of the bush roads, etc., while the heavier American products would stand the gaff and give the service that was desired, i Everyone in Australia rides a motor cycle, be cause it is the most practical way of getting from wh=re you arc to where yo...

A SIMMER MOOD [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916

A siimmcj? wnnn Oh. the world will be crying and sighing and trying To utter the depths of its gloom. And luck will seem lazy and h»zy and crazy And slump when your hopes ought to boom. And prospects grow humble and grumble and tumble Where once they seemed happy and high. But the sun gaily streaming comes gleaming and beaming And sets the world right by and by. When the blossoms are growing and Blowing and showing The tints they have coaxed from the sky. And the breeze all caressing, expressing a . blessing, So tenderly pauses to sigh. When the songbirds are flinging their sine ing and clinging To tremulous twigs on a tree. The world quite forgetting, regretting or fret ting, Is happy as happy can be. — Waihinfton Star. Inquisitive old party on the Bc^ch : 'What is the cause of that pcculisr upward twitching of your nose every time an officer passes ?

OLD TIMERS ON THE BEACH CHAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916

OLD TIMERS ON THE BEACH CHAIRS. when old men meet they ask lor news of friend .they used to know. 'Say, what's become of Harry) Hughes ?' 'The anthrax laid him low.' 'Well, what's become of William. Bill, and what's become of Fred ?' 'They both are seeping on the hill, and each is doubly dead.' 'Why, truly, friend, if these things be, we're pretty much alone; but wnere is Andrew J. McGee ?' 'He sleeps beneath the stone.' 'I used to know a lovely maid, whose name was Julia Jones.' 'She's resting in the willow's shade, out In the place, of bones.' No wonder that the old are bent beneath their weight of gloom; They canno'. gossip worth a cent., and not bring in the tomb. Mirth to their discourse they would lend, nnd cheerfully behave. But when they a6k abou* a friend they hear about the grave. 'Oh, what's become o{ Jim and Joe, and Nell and Bess and Jane ?' 'They died the death lone yean ago, and dead they still remain.'

MR. PHIL GLENISTER [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916

MR. PHIL GLENISTER Our artist provides on another page to-d«y a cartoon of the veteran Australian sportsman, who has been more or less associated with most of our sports in his time. As one views Mr. Glenister to-day — 'Phil' Glenistcr, or 'Phil,' to hi3 army of friends and associates, and to the general public for that matter— the first thing that would pro bably strike the observer is that the years have dealt lightly with him, for, like the brook, he seems to go on, almost unchanged, for ever. Probably no one is better known in our world of sport than veteran Phil Glenister, ana no one more respected. i-or some thirty years past he has been a member of Tatter sail's Club Committee, and at one time was the largest turf commission agent in Australia. So much for the business side. In the way of sport and recreation he is perhaps best known in three distinct depart ments — he has been, and probably is still a first-class shot ; he has ever been a first-class cueist ; and he is at pr...

Mr. Mcintosh said :— 'I was faced with the fact that L'Auto, a newspaper with the largest circulation for any sporting paper in the world, running into over 1,000,000 copies, used to demand ten per cent, of the gross takings at every contest, other wise they would not advertise it. Without this paper lending its support, it was considered by the sporting authorities of Paris that any big contest would be ruined.
