PLAIN AUSTRALIAN THE END OF CANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
PLAIN AUSTRALIAN THE END OF CANT. It looks as If these latest air-raids in Britain may have the effect of putting an end to all this puling cant against reprisals. It will not be too soon. No man of British birth and blood wants to see German women and children slain. But we have to deal efficiently with an enemy who can only be dominated by his fears. On our British chivalry the Germans have traded shamelessly throughout, until in the end it has become a positive encouragement to their worst debauches of hate and lust. 'Since the British will not retaliate,' they say, 'let us do our damndest to drive them to make peace for our profit 1' And the British so far have fallen into the trap, and to that extent have been the authors of their own wrongs. ' Five hundred bombs on Berlin or Cologne would make a sud den end of baby-murder by German ruffians in Britain. And thus, in the end, and speedily, re prisals would be a means of saving countless innocent lives. A German responds to no ar...
EMDEN HERO [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
EMDEN HERO Citizens of the State will be furnished with the opportunity of doing honor to the com mander of the H.A.M.S. Sydney, which ac counted for the German raider Emden. The difficulty of recording appreciation of the work of' the Sydney has hitherto been the absence of Captain Glossop from Sydney waters. On Thursday Captain Glossop is to be entertained at a luncheon In the Town Hall. The Lord Mayor will preside, and speakers will be the Lord Mayor, the Acting-Premier, and the Minister for the Navy. There will be a formal presentation of a memorial tablet of bronze, on which will be inscribed the names of all on board the Sydney at the time of the wrecking of .the Emden, There will also be a presentation to Captain Glossop personally. This may be in the form of a piece of plate — probably a silver salver suitably inscribed. It !b the particular wish of the Lord Mayor that the public shall under stand this is to be a public ceremony to which all who can make it convenient to att...
IN CASE! [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
IN CASE! One of the boys who has got a billet as a night watchman was being shown round his new job, and tells this on himself: There are time clocks which have to be pushed every quarter of an hour to show that you are going round regularly. 'What are they for?' I asked the boss. ' 'Oh,' he said, 'we have them there so that if the place catches fire you won't be burned up while you are asleep.'

PER BALLOON POST MEMOIR OF THE SIEGE OF PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
PER BALLOON POST MEMOIR OF THE SIEGE OF ?ARIS. An unusually interesting souvenir of the siege of Paris is being put up for auction at the British Empire League's marquee in Mar tin Place in the shape of a letter written in English by a French soldier on September 20, 1870, during the siege of Paris. This, writ ten on wafer-like paper and folded for trans mission by post in a manner akin to Mr. Webster's new-fangled telegrams, so that an envelope is unnecessary, was presented to the stall by Miss Ada Reeve who had it given to her upon her arrival in Western Australia some months ago by a returned Lieutenant of the A.I.F. The Anzac who paid twenty pounds for it only a few days prior to Miss Reeve's return to Australia, suggested to the comedienne that if a day wan ever held in Sydney for the heroes of France it would, by reason of its association with the siege of Paris, be well worth auctioneering. Miss Reeve readily fell in with his suggestion which has justified itself by proving a...
"SHOOT Y'————!" [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
'SHOOT Y* ? !' One of the stories which will be told at length some time is of a priest with the boys at Gal lipoli who saw them falling as quickly as they showed their heads over the top of the trench. The Father stood it till he could stand it no longer. Then he jumped on the top and, wav ing his breviary in the direction of the firing, shouted at the top of his' strong voice, 'Shoot me, Y' ? .' He was in the frame of mind when something had, to be done, and he did what he could.

THREATENING LETTERS VIOLENCE TO RECRUITING OFFICERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
THREATENING LETTERS VIOLENCE TO RECRUITING OFFICERS. The announcement that a threatening letter has been sent to one of the active recruiting officers in the city does not come as a surprise to the men on the inside. Such letters are common. The Mirror used to receive them, and most of the men prominent in that move ?ment -for the upkeep of reinforcements for the men at the front, have had them, The C.I.D. has possession of information which may lead to results. The practice in the Department of 'Recruiting is to tear the letters up on receipt, but since a threat to kill one of the most active of the workers has been made, it is considered wise to move in the direction of lay.ing the writers by the heels.
THE MIRROR of SPORT HORSE, FOOT, AND MARINE Cairns' Win on Merunqua. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917
hru py JMB^ HORSE, FOOT, AND MARINE— By Our Correspondents. Cairns' Win on Mcrunqua. Jockey Hughie Cairns, who pushed Merun qua's head in front of Bundong's nose in Flem ington (Vic.) Grand National Hurdle last Sat urday, is about the finest all-round horseman ii. Australia to-day. -That's saying something. Dash of Cairns just about landed the goods for owner Mackinnon in this particular event. Merunqua and Bundong lobbed across the last obstacle together, and fled for the judge's box locked together. They did the same act a week earlier with a similar result. A few months back Cairns married the shapely Molly Maguire of the Tivoli Follies. Bad luck for that bunch that Molly's husband wasn't aboard a big win ner earlier. Maybe there wouldn't have been so many insistent calls for advances by the actors before treasury day. It doesn't matter to Cairns whether the moke he is aboard is climbing over sticks or hopping along on the fiat. He's at home anywhere in the saddle. ?.When Fitness...
