THIS WEEK'S PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mount Barker Courier and Onkaparinga and Gumeracha Advertiser — 15 April 1927

THIS WEEK'S PICTURES.. - Douglas; Fairbanks has long -been noted for -his lavish and ambitious picture productions, _ but in "The Black Pirate," which comes to Mount Barker on Saturday night, he is re ported as fairly having outdone his : own previous efforts. It is a faithful, thrilling epic of the golden days of buccaneering near the end of the eighteenth century, anddepictg vividly and colorfully- the hectic life of the j daredevil -roamers of the Spanish Main during that era. In every way 4t' is the-most stupendous production that Douglas has ever attempted, and . from end to end it is filled with the unique athletic 'feats that place a Fair banks picture in a clasp by itself; in fact, in "The Black Pirate" the star has thought up a -number, of new stunts that are as thrilling as they are novel.

A HAPPY SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mount Barker Courier and Onkaparinga and Gumeracha Advertiser — 15 April 1927

A HAPPY SUGGESTION. A meeting of the Barker B Football Club v^aa held in the Institute on Thursday evening, April 7, when there ; was a very small attendance. Owing ; principally to the inability to find a j secretary (Mr. B. Neate having re ! signed) no club was formed this year. This means that the senior club will not have any training school upon ) which'.to draw. --Mr. Dyer has made a happy suggestion that the Boys' ■ Club form a football team which will actually take the place of the old seconds. With the efficient organ isation of the club it should be possible tosprovide the machinery for the sue cessful' formation of such a tehm of growing footballers. Any old player who is interested enough to show "that interest in a practical manner and be willing to assist;in training the young sters should communicate with the diretcor.of the club, Mr. . Dyer. With such a big population of young men j and.boys, there should be many-more . players and not so many onlookers.

"PADLOCKED." [Newspaper Article] — The Mount Barker Courier and Onkaparinga and Gumeracha Advertiser — 15 April 1927

'PADLOCKED.' Allan Dwan, famed Paramount director, who new screen opus, "Padlocked," opens at the Murray Bridge Lyric Theatre to morrow (Saturday), is living proof of the fallacy, of the .statement that "higher education is marked by its absence in the movies. Dwan is an ex-college professor. Twenty years ago when the films were really in their Infancy, he was. busily" engaged instructing the _ etudens of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, better known as ."Boston Tech," in .the principles of higher mathematics and the mysteries of physics. "When Dwan learned in 1906 that as much as 25 dollars was being paid for a scenario, he decided to get in on the easy money. He hurried to the old Essanay studio in Chicago and got a lob—as electrician! But the ambition "to be an author. was not to be stifled, and he finally wrote a scenario which was accepted. While it was being picturised. the director had an argument with one of the executives, and was fired on the spot. Because he was tli...

Royal, after which business began, and, the ladies in charge were kept going throughout the afternoon. Much of the success was due to the combined effort of those in. charge of the ar rangements, and especially to Mr. L. R.

CLYDESDALE HORSE SOCIETY. £1500 For A Yearling. WHAT DOES IT PORTEND? [Newspaper Article] — The Mount Barker Courier and Onkaparinga and Gumeracha Advertiser — 15 April 1927

CLYDESDALE HORSE SOCIETY. £1500 For A Yearling. WHAT DOES IT PORTEND? The sale of the yearling- Clydesdale colt "Cooring Monarch," which 'was , reported in last month's "News," for the record figure of £1,500 can rightly be accepted that there is a very definite and assured future in store for the breeders of high-class'draught . stock. Were this not the case, it- is hardly likely that anyone would give such a high figure for a yearling■ Clydesdale colt. Such figures are noti too frequently given even for thor oughbred yearlings, in which class a purchaser has the added inducement, to lay out a large sum by reason of the rich prizes ofiered by the leading racing clubs. By comparison the prizes offered amongst Clydesdale horses at agricultural shows are in significant, whilst services 'fees charged are considerably lower than amongst thoroughbreds. All the more credit, then, is due,.to Mr. Dahlenburg for demonstrating in such terms his confidence in the future of the Clydesdale horse...

FULL TALE OF RAILWAY LOSSES. Worst Year in History. £17,000,000 Taken From Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — The Mount Barker Courier and Onkaparinga and Gumeracha Advertiser — 15 April 1927

FULL TALE OF RAILWAY LOSSES. Worst Year in History. £17,000,000 Taken From Reserves. No more striking illustration can be found of last year's great industrial upheaval than that furnished by the working result of the big British rail ways. The last of. the dividend amounts is now published, and the experience of the companies as whole is unparallelled- in the -transport industry of the country. Its effect is widespread and touches the pockets of tens of thousands of investors, both large and small. It is true that .in all cases some dividend has been paid 'to ordinary .shareholders, but the amount distributed by the "big four" groups for the past year amounts fo under £6,000,000, against over I £13,000,000 for 192S, and the acutal return on the capital involved is only 2.1 per cent. Even this, meagre-re-, turn would not have been possible' but for the big draft on reserves. The actual profits . earned in excess: of fixed charges—that is, debenture and rent charge stocks—amounted to...
