Rottnest RESORT BEING STRANGLED. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Rottnest RESORT BEING STRANGLED. — o— Some months ago, when the Rott nest season was opening, 'The Mir ror' made some remprks intended as friendly suggestions to the Board of Control. We regret to have tc record that the end of the season, far form see ??«v^.v'.f -.--1v,v.?-R«s',- ?-.:.?? 'trr-: ing'tjhpse suggestions adopted, brings -witfc^it a c/mviction-that the S£ard has 'utterly failed t$ prove its com petence as a governing body for the Island. We will probably be met with a statement that Rottnest was booked up completely all through the sum mer. Quite so; but the mere fact that the natural advantages of a holiday resort prove too strong for the blundering of its governors is no excuse for that blundering. Peo ple flock to the Taxation' Depart ment these days in greater numbers than they ever did before; yet the popularity of the Taxation Depart- ' ment is scarcely on the ^up-grade. We warned the Board last De cember that the flies would eat out the holiday-makers. We were to...
N.S.W. Secessionists FIND FBDSND IN "WEST AUSTRALIAN." A Flagrant Volte Face. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
N.S.W. Seces sionists FIND FBXJEftD XN 'WEST AUSTRALIAN.' A Flagrant Volte Face. In the course of an editorial last Thursday dealing with the Northern N-S.W. secession movement, the 'West Australian' had. some -very hard things to say about centralisa tion — as practised, of course, by those arch-fiends, Melbourne and Sydney. jl Octopus, .Vampire, and various other tern^ borrowed from natural and unnatural history were worked', to death as epithets for those two cities. They had deliberately strangled outposts; dragged produce hundreds of miles past its natural outlets in order to pass it through the ledger of the -bloated capital city, etc, etc Very true! Most true indeed! But are Melbourne and Sydney the only sinners in this 'regard? 'Have not other State capitals- -foi exam ple, Perth-done a little bit of 'vampinng' in their day? Not the slightest doubt can be entertained that one of the most disgraceful examples of octapus cen tralisation that Australia can afford (or, should we...
THE MIRROR Perth, Sunday, April 24, 1921. PUBLIC HEALTH [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Perth, Sunday, April 24, 1821. PUBLIC HEALTH — u — A body of enthusiastic- citizens has been got together in Melbourne to form an Australian Public Health Association- It is intended to form branches in the several States, with a view to rousing public interest in matters affecting hygenie and medical research. These subjects possess an impor tance, especially in Australia, which even public health enthusiasts them selves probably fail to realise to the fullest extent. Problems of health and disease are, in reality, far more important than many of the issues' whereon elections are fought with such bitterness. ' A ready: example is afforded by the Local Option poll, the cam paign for which is now in full swing. Even alruifbing, for the sake of ar gument, the very wdrst that No Li cense advocates are able to ° say about drink, the sober fact remains that the ravages of alcoholic excess are dwaiftsdi by comparison with the silent, deadly march of prevent able disease.' Is it alcohol th...

Nuthin' Doin' [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
NHthin Doin — u Germany hasn't come up to the scratch in the way our French friends and Mr. iLloyd George ex pected. After many expensive con ferences, Fritz got his bili for his mad bull outing in France and Bel gium and his audacious pranks on and under the seas, and a mighty stiff one it is. thinks Fritz. 'Too big,' he says, 'can t pay. 'Sacre,' says M. Briand, but you must, or we'Jl put you out of business and run jour show ourselves, and get our cut out of the indemnity in our own way.' 'All right,' says Fritz, with a grin, 'come and get it.' Stript of subterfuge and subtlety that's how the Reparations business stands at present. No one knows how things are between France and England on the one hand, and both and Germany on the other. The whole, camouflaged thing seems a bungle, and it looks pretty much like tall swearing between Bri tain and her French ally at the fin ish. Fritz has had perenapt notice from - the Reparations Committee to make up his mind definitely by Friday l...
Eating the Leak [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Effing tie lean What the man in the street and our morning oracle anticipated would1 happen has happened. Hughes' fine indignation with the Country Party over the snatch vote episode was, after all, merely a display of Chinese fireworks. The dilemma, created by the Country Party and the absent-minded beg gar, Mr. Fowler, has proved to be as. hornless as a poley cow- Hughes was conndent ot a triumph over the men from the agricultural areas, and some are not surprised he has succeeded in '?Hughesing'^them t6 stablise his uncertain position in the Coalition. He has given evi €ence enough that he is nae fool. No wwe know he has the cunning of the cobra. From the very first, after the snock of the division, his quick mind went into action, and with tha intention of a trained gambler he stacked his cards and played them against hi? inexperien ced friends. For surelv the Coun try Party sre his friends. The re sult was never in doubt from the fall of the first card. But what of the fine ind...
Patch as Patch Can "How to Make a Nightie out o' Nuthin'." [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Patck as Paten Can 'How to Make a Nightie out o' Nuthin'. ' Or, t least, next to nothin'! It's more a case of 'First get your stuff, and then cut it,' than anything else! Any stuff will do! The new vel vet curtnins for the study or the Liberty satin lining of the embroi dered bedspread cousin Angelina worked for brother Bob. The old chintz that -has been put aside for doing up the 'best' room is rather nice, especially if it has a particular ly vivid pattern. Very fine linen sheets will do enchantingly too. But one must dye them first. A penny bottle cf red ink in a paii of water, a handful of salt — yep, ordinary table salt (space to let for adver tisement) —and an hour's boiling. It is imagined, of course, that the sheet has 'been taken from the linen cupboard and not from the dirty wash basket. Sheets must, before dye-ing, be particularly- immaculate ( Would that we all were!) After the hour's cooking, rinse well, wring out. iron, and . . . serve! The result should be a particula...
Feed the Brute! Appetite Appeaser [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Feed tke Brute ! appetite /Ippeasers Fruit Salts. — Two ounces each of Epsom salts, bi-carbonate of soda, tartaric acid and cream of tartar. Pound fine with six czs. of caster sugar, or roll with a bottle, sirting out tne nne till all goes through the sieve. Now mix in a flour-sifter, or by passing it through muslin. Keep in a stoppered bot tle or jar. Dose: a teaspoonful to a glass of water. A lemon, or other flavour can be given by a few drops of the essence in the water. For people subject to flatulence use a few drops of essence of pepper Mock Cream.— A teaspoonful of butter and a tablespoonful each of boiling water, sugar, and cold boil ed milk. (The milk must be bo-led and cold). Beat the butter and sugar to a cream, pour on the boil ing water, then the milk, and whip light. Icing sugar is best, as th«re is more to use without being over sweet. This is a much better cream than, the one made with mai zena or cornflour. If a richer cream is wanted, use more butter.

Homily for the Housewife [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Homily for tke Housewife Wash black stockings, before wearing, in a warm lather, to which a few drops of ammonia have been added, rinse in clean, cold water, dry as q'li^kly as possible. This keeps the colour. Before washing any new article, steep for half-an-hour in clean, cold water in which has been dissolved a handful of salt to a pail of water one tablespoonful of vinegar also, if for coloured articles — this helps to fix the colour. This applies especi ally to big things, such as blankets, counterpanes, lace curtains, etc , as treated hi this way, they do not 'kill* the sud when put in the wash ing water. Hence, there is a great saving cf soap and labour. Medium priced Turkish towels lack the cri«=pness of the pre-war ar ticle, owing, of course, to the lack of linen in the towel! This im proves them a little. Take one heaped tablespoonful of flour, four of cold water, -mix to a paste, pour over three pints of boiling water, stirring all the time; put the towels through this; t...

MAGAZINE PAGE DIVERSIFIED READERS FOR EVERYBODY Over the kise [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
1*1 A €Y AZTNF; P A C\ F diversified reajpiW Over fye 3\lse A long, weird waste of a dull dead level, with blue heights far in the distance lined, A sun that flamed like a near-seen f u rnace, a man who talked to a dog that whined: 'Et's hot as hell, and we've not rnuvh water, but buck up, Drover, and lift your eyes The green's on the hills, and we'll tramp till sundown— there are good things for us over the rise.' 'Over the Rise!' Wayfarers tramping the arid wastes of the Plains of Life. Toil-woni and sweating beneath their burdens, and sick and tired of the ceaseless strife, How many would drop by t he wayside., beaten, abandoning each his first emprise, If he cherished no dreams of a Land of Promise— the generous country 'Over the Rise.'
Very Mixed Juries [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
V*ry Mtixed Juries 'Now, isn't that just like » woman?' For years we have heard screams about 'man-made and man administered law,' and demands foi the 'equality of the sexes.' Now the women help both to make and co administer the law; yet no soon er does an 'unpleasant' case come on in the English Courts than the papers are full of letters from, and artides by. women objecting to hav ing to serve on the jury. The men of a mixed jury, by the way, must feel fully as uncomfortable as i£e women in this sort of case; but no body makes a song about THEM! We are sorry for the women who didn't want the vote or the duties it entails, but had both forced on them by the action of the 'shriek- ing sisterhood'; stilL they should have ta'-tn 1beir Christabels and Sylvias in hand at the time. Too late now- ? 'Why doesn't someone suggest to our too-sensitive jury women, by the way, that they might find relief for their feelings b3* resorting to the new — or rather revived — feminine fashion of wear...

$?ap '3V, bout yap If you carefully search you will find on the map Of tfie Western Pacific, the island of Yap; vBut if you refuse to, I don't care a rani 1 It's the sort of a place where you just throw your cap, And the ladies all love vou and sit on your lap, And the best pre-war whisky is al ways on tap. From which you will . see~ that the island of Yap Is a land of -delight for an indolent chap, Who's remarkably fond of an after noon nap, On a day when he feels too lethargic to slap At mosquitoes; and almist tO9 lazy to clap His hands for a drink— 'just to 'fill up the gap.' But I'm told that the far-awav isiand of Yap Is a bone of contention 'twixt Yan kee and Jap; Jap's got it— Yank wants it: and therefore, mayhap, Since each is a fire-eating sort of a chap, There's a very fair chance of a deuce cf a scrap Concerning the beautiful island of Yap.

B^e -8tyirlisi3 of TCife (By 'H.F.L.') How endlessly interesting life is! The slightest movement in the great kaleidoscope is capable of bringing about amazing alterations in the set ting of life, while a monstrous shake up, such as the world has undergone ih the last few years, necessarily 're- sults in a vast and sweeping trans formation. . - All we can hope to do is to guide, to modify, to steady the reeling steps of the newry-born offspring of this spirit of change The wheel of life has been revolv ing rapidly — the whole pace of ths world is accelerated. Woman had already put her hand to the helm ; but, ,in spite bi her demands, our progress towards the hqge change now operating was 'dead slow' until the storm came!
