VERY HOT WEATHER PHOTOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

VERY HOT WEATHER PHOTOGRAPHY. Many of us are apt to put away our cameras in the hottest months of the year. There is no need to do this. With the aid of up-to-date appliances negative-making can be enjoyed in the very hottest months of the year. Recently we took and de veloped a batch of negatives, on a day when the thermometer rose to llOdeg., without entering a dark-room, and without losing a single negative. Let us explain our mode of procedure. The plates were loaded in the dark slides by means of a changing bat?. The photographs—views of thresh ing and winnowing—were taken in the early morn ing. The plates (Ilford Special Rapid) were trans ferred from the dark slides to a developing tank by means of che changing bag. Development then proceeded, using Kodak developing powders. The temperature of all solutions was kept at from 60deg. to 65deg. by the use of plenty of ice, but no alum, formalin, or other chemical hardening solution was used. The results were halt a dozen negatives...

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

THE WHI8PERING GALLERY. Joseph Cook:s personal supporters are wonder ing whether he has a magnetic personality. They have little of the personal attachment that characterised Deakin's following, and they don't know whether the Commonwealth's present THE COLOSSUS WHO CAN'T. (Irrijjiitionibt Mead thinks he can attend to Victoria's business and bestow services in America at one and the same time.) Punch's Opinion.—" You can't make it, old chap ? Even a good man is sometimes r rather smaller than his own opinion of himself." Prime Minister would last in his position if a stern party system did not tie all Liberal mem i hers to him. Some leaders draw men towards - them, and enjoy the personal service of slaves ; ' others lead by sheer good fortune or ability. Amongst the first were Parkes, Deakin, and • Barton. Amongst the second were Ttcid, Tur ner, Lyne. Andrew Fisher has an almost tan gible personal magnetism. He owes a good deal to it, Tor it has kept him surrounded by per sonal foll...

STAINS ON BROMIDE PRINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

STAINS ON BROMIDE PRINTS. However careful ' one may be, stains will occa sionally make their appearance on bromide prints, or enlargements, generally where the paper has been handled. Various methods have been recommended for removing those, but they all involve the re wetting of the print, with consequent risk. May I advise my fcilow-photoirraphers/- before taking any sucli step.s, to sue it the stains cannot be removed with indiarubber or ink-eraser, used auitc gentlv so as not to injure the surface ? If their experienco is anything like my own, they will find that three times nut of four notriiiic more is needed to leave the print viuite clean.— "W. Roy, in "P. and F.

Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

Prattle Jihout People. Efx-Attorneyj-Geiieral Hughes exhibits great histrionic capacity in his speeches. This is in part due to natural gift, but also in a mea sure to the fact that he was once on the stage. He carried a banner m cue of George Ragnold's representations of "Henry V." Premier Watt .is a great cricket enthusiast, and, although not a doer, is a great talker on the subject. 'If was, of course, due to his colleague, Attorney-General Mackinnon, that he dined with the M.C.C. last week. No doubt the same influence caused him to open his heart to public servants, and permit liaif-leave to see the American Baseballers on the Sth, and half on the 9th. W. M. Hughes is still the power in. the Waterside Workers' Federation. He is support ed by R. Bamford, M.J?., Senator Guthrie and other members of the Federal Caucus. Thus is the Caucus connected very definitely with the new wharf labourers' log, and thus is the Caucus policy unfolded. The policy is to make extravagant demands in ...

PORTRAITS AND NATURAL BACKGROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

portraits and natural backgrounds. Ridicule has been heaped upon the amateur photo gr&phsr who in his early days with the camera selects a brick wall or a mass ol shiny leaves as the background for his sitters; but it has always seemed to mc that such ridicule was a little harsh and undeserved. After ail, the choice of such a background lias this to be said for it, that it is generally the result of an attempt to show the sub ject in v. familiar setting, and if it does not alto gether succeed, it is, at anv rate, a pluckier at tempt than that of the photographer who, awaro of the difficulties which surround it, dodges them by the use of some painted screen or brown paper background, which gives his model no setting at all. The practice of using a natural background is therefore one which should be encouraged rather than the reverse : at the same time, help should be given by suggesting how its difficulties may bo overcome. The outdoor portrait has, or should have, a finality...

Church and Organ [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

.. Archbishop Clarke says that.; tie and Archdeacon Hindley fight it out in private, but agree in public. .Reminds us of Pre-, ^tnier Derby in England. Apropos a cer . tain measure discussed in the Cabinet, he said : "Some of you hold that it will increase prices, and others that it will ■ lower them. In facing; Parliament, we ' must all say one thing on that point." Thus such, independent luinded men as Prime Minister Cook and Sir John For •. rest, and Premier Watt and Sir A. Pea cock square up. But Archdeacon Hindley ;; ;;:has a certain obstinacy! .He will be like . ■ Galileo, who knelt down before the Inqui sition, and solemnly declared that • the - earth did not move. -Rising- from his knees, he muttered, "It moves for all that." - . ■ '' / .

CONTINENTAL MOTOR CYCLE RELIABILITY CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

CONTINENTAL MOTOR CYCLE RE LIABILITY CONTEST. The Continental Motor Cycle Reliability Contest, which started from the Sydney G.P.O. on 29th De cember, and finished at Coburg, Victoria, on New Year's Day, attracted the greatest entry for a con test of this description yet held in Australasia.

LUNA PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

luna park. To stcgger and stumble, to "side slip" and reel backwards may be easy of accomplishment (especi ally to the inebriate) when on the earth ; but to go through such "evolutions" on a stretch ol wire drawn taut at a height 0f filter feet from the ground, sad without the least concern or mishap, is a totally different matter. All that and more however, is accomplished nifihtly at Luna Park bv Calvert, whose turn is certainly one of the finest of its kind ever presented In Australia.

OPERA HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

OPERA HOUSE. Packed houses continue to be the rule. at the Opera House, and new itsms have been added to strengthen an already good hill of fare. One of the chief novelties on Saturday was the first appearance in Melbourne of a voung lady juggler, who performs upon the line? of the in comparable Cinquevalli. The attractive young performer had a very favourable reception, and her exhibition of skill and smartness in juggl ing was warmly applauded. An American lady and gentleman (Barton and Ashley) also made their first appearance in a dramatic trifle en titled "Money Talks," which proved highly amusing, and was loudly applauded. Mr. Eric Stone, a black-and-Avhite artist, was very suc cessful with a number of lightning sketches, and amongst others who plesised all by thsir efforts were Reynolds and Donegan, Aimee Sm'ith, the Five Petlevs, the Schmettans and Rosa Roma, the gipsy violinist.

PRINCESS'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

PRINCESS'S THEATRE. The experiment of staging a new version of an old favourite as a Christmas production proved a success at the Princess's Theatre, and '■'Uncle Tom's Cabin" has done a capital three weeks' business at this theatre: It will be given for the last time to-morrow evening. On Saturday night Mr,- George Willoughby will produce for the first time in Australia a new four-act melodrama, entitled "The Pride of the Prairie," which he (confidently expects to make a big hit with the Melbourne public. The new piece which, as might be assumed from its name, comes from America, is said to be full of strong human incident and thrilling sen sation. The characters will be taken by the members of Mr. Wiilloughby's popular dramatic organisation, supplemented by Miss Gertrude Boswell, the English actress, who is already favourably, known in Australia.

Home? The idea of, the abolition or the home is be ing discussed by "uVge" correspondents, incited thereto, no doubt, by the paper's official pen men. There is on the part of a number of the writers who consider respect for the hom'e overdone and often mtirrty misplaced an air of persons propr,""''i-ir wildly revolutionary themes ; Tjut the: idea cf hardships and wrongs inflicted by the old-fashionod home convention has been propounded in plays like "Magda," and in the writings of men like Ibsen, iN'ictz sche, Strindbcrg and Bernard Shaw for many years past. The British mind has an instruc tive reverence for home—liomc to an ordinary, •full-fed, well-kept Englishman is the most sacred thing, and anv thought of reforming it is con demned as unholy, infidel and anarchistic. Such a man's home may not be all human fancy could devise, but it carries with it everything that goes in sentimental minds with the name of mcther and the poetic fireside notions, arid is "eminently desirable" as ...

CURRENT NOTES. W. A. Watt Becomes a Farm Enthusiast. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

QUBBEMT MOYEB. W. A. Watt Becomes a Farm Enthusiast. Premier Watt set out on Tuesday to woo the farmers. He had been reading—'reading hard. He had read all about the farmers' needs. He knew the price of butter and the variations in the cost of cornsacks, he had the Wheat Cem miss|ion's recommendations off pat, and his heart was full of sympathy fir the struggling men and women of the soil. Metaphorically, lie sucked a straw. He wore howyaags to keep his workaday trousers out of the dust, his mat ted locks were sheltered by a widc-brimm'ed old felt, and his hands were hard and horny. Was there ever a liner farmer's man ? This was not the electrifier of the suburban railways and the creator of a Greater Melbourne Council. No ; this -was Watt, the farm enthusiast, the Pre mier who lived and slaved only for the worthy farmer, the emancipator of 1.he downtrodden soil slaves, the destroyer of pleasure - loving, parasitical Melbourne. This was indeed a farmer among farmers, a reformer r.pr...
