"Sun-Raysed" Products [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 September 1919

" Sun-Raysed " Products Notwithstanding tlu1 cabled threat of the money magnates of America to reduce the value of the British sove reign to four dollars (16/8), Austra lians have 'the supreme consolation of knowing that America cannot assail our dried fruit industry. The Sun Raysed currants, lexias, and sultanas have 110 superior in the world, a fact attested by the demands from other countries for supplies, of" these peerless products. As with fruits, so may it be with all other things Australian, if our people will only realise the magnitude of their inheritance, its glorious cli mate, and marvellous productivity.

How Jazz Originated. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 September 1919

How Jazz Originated. How many . poople know the real meaning 11" the word Jazz? Authorities on Jazz dancing .say it is a word used by niggers to denote ,i scramble. The dame itself lias been known in the Southern States of America for- many years. Crude and vulgar, it is per formed by niggers to the accompani ment of two or three banjoists and a drummer, whose chief business is to make noises. In fact, the dance has been de-fined as "a number of niggers surrounded by noi^e.'' Some possibilities were seen in it of^ a nn;sie-hall turn for New York, and it v«as -performed there with an augmented band of twenty'banjoists, several zither players, and a drummer, whose acro batic antics in producing noise brought dowin the house, and made the band so' popular that it was promptly multiplied. ©and and dance eventually founcfc: their way to this country, arid it is sometimes said rather unkindly that some white people have made the dance scarcely less vulgar than the blacks.

LOVE IN A COTTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 September 1919

LOVE IN A COTTAGE. A cottage small be mine, -with porclx Enwreathed with ivy green, And brightsome -flowers with dew-filled bells, "Mid brown old wattles seen. And one to wait at shut of eve, Wifch eyes as fountain clear, And braided hair and simple dresa, My homeward steps to hear. On summer eves to sing old songa, And talk o'er early vows, While stars look down like angel's eyej Amid the leafy boughs. When Spring flowers peep from flosfij" cells, And bright-winged parrots call, In forest paths be ours to rove Till purple evenings fall. The curtain closed, by taper clear To read some page divine, On Winter nights, the hearth beside, Her soft, warm hand in mine. And so to glide, through busy life, Like some small brook alone, That winds its way 'mid grassy knolls, Its music all its own. —'Daniel Henry Deniehy.

Newcastle Land Values. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 September 1919

Newcastle Land Values. Au argument in connection with Greater Newcastle is the diversity of land values in the several centres which are to be amalgamated. Becent de mands in the East End of Newcastle would indicate that the city will be giving away much to the suburbs. "With out increasing rates, Newcastle City » Council will next year collect a much larger revenue by reason of the enor mous increases in values proclaimed by • recent purchases.

§ae t(<r-r Young Australia. Dear Comrades,— I .have been enjoying a holiday in bydney, and, as usual, 'have been visit ing and re-visiting the historic spots of the great metropolis of the south. That Sydney possesses peculiar charms ic a fact fully and freely admitted. Sydnoy is the cradle of civilisation in Australia, and there many of Aus tralia's noblest sons attained that prominence which is justly accorded them in all modern editions of the his tory of our country. Were it necessary I could name a score of our great men who were born within hearing of the Post Office chimes. In iny last letter I gave you some particulars of t<hat brilliant Australian, William Bede Dalley, who was born within the area indicated, and I intend on this oc casion to endeavour to convey to your minds some impressions of another big hearted, noble-minded Australian.

A Sigma of the Times. American Manufacturing Ideas. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 September 1919

A Sigma of the Times. American Manufacturing Ideas. In its issue of July 10th lust, "Hard ware Age'' champions the cause of the local manufacturer as against foreign products. If peace is not to mean a preponderance of outside hardware in the American market, two things must be done. Merchants must give "Made in,U.S.A." the first call, and legislators must give adequate protection to the many American industries that have sprung up during the war. "The de velopment of. the cutlery-making plants in the. United States have 'been a re markable war achievement. These plants need, and should have, tariff protection. They need it because foreign manufacturers are planning to use cutlery (sold, if necessary, at less than production cost) as the opening wedge to make connections with Ameri can buyers, and from that contract they plan to spread out with a great di versity of foreign-made tools." No direct proof of these assertions is of fered, .but they have t'he authority of the editorial c...

William Field, who was n censor diiriiijLT the war, stated that the letter* of the Australian soldiers were superior to those of any other forces in the field—"Well written, their literary style, clean cut sentences, excellent command of language, good grammar and pronounced originality, generally speaking, being excellent.'' On tiie same occasion he expressed the hope "that few, if any, of the English soldiers' letters have fallen into enemy hands, for Germany would lie filled with disgust at the educational system which produced such slender, and even wretched, results."

Peculiar Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 September 1919

fPecwliar Advertising. T'he aldermen of Merewether are giv ing their borough .peculiar prominence by clamoring for a lock-up. The civic representatives should at least realise that every policeman appointed 'by the State is an adverse reflection upon the practical Christianity of the citizens. To proclaim to the world that your own particular locality is sadly needing a house of correction is not by any means a boosting stunt.

Some thousands of Competitors were disqualified through omitting to send a. Grocer's docket with their form, until the last few days of the Competition we advised such entrant to make good the deficiency but after that date it became impossible. Although requested to postpone the closing date we regarded ourselves as absolutely bound by the original conditions, and deter mined to keep faith with the entrants in every respect. Therefore the Contest closed on 30th July, (post mark on letters).
