AS THINGS ARE. ENGLISH PAROCHIALISM. Have you ever been to« Loudon? No? Well, go there rf you want to study "parochialism" at its best-or worst. Whenever thc flag of Scot- tish nationalism is raised, the Lon- doners talk about "parochialism," and advise, u; to take "wider" views, etc., etc. Which shows a ohe-sid^d nes.s ci vision characteristic of the English, and plainly discernable dur-, ing the late war. For instance, thc English bombed a German town; great glee, Glorious feat. The Ger j mans retaliated on London, a much greater distance «from their base and m every way a more hazardous un- dertaking. - "''Result: Huns, Fiends, Baby-killers, etc.! English Cabinet Ministers (at a safe distance) killed the Germans with their mouths. They prated loudly of the righteous- ness of their cause, and. of their fixed, determination to fight to the bitter end (by proNy!). "They would not sheath the swerd until Prrussia was wholly and finally destroyed," etc., etc. The English press hailed s...

THE "AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 4 June 1921
THE "AT HOME." No doubt the Administrator and Minister Poynton had expected that the "At Home" on Friday evening would prove the means of attracting j practically all Dárwin to the rendez* I vous at Government House, with the ' exception, perhaps, of the " Half ' dozen or so Wild and Woolly Bol- sheviks " who don't know how to ' use an afternoon tea cup. Success ; in this well-planned affair would j have wiped the floor with the " Few I malcontents" and to assure it, the i band was engaged. But in the words of the renowrïed "Bobby? "The best laid plans of men, and mice, ga.it aft aglce." The Band didn't mater- ialise, nor did the residents rush to tip the good Minister their flipper cither-only that "Over sixty" al- ready so familiar with the line ol least resistance-and a sense of things to come. Anyway, the func- tion was a slump, though the host and hostesses did all they could to make merry and to beguile. Indeed the afternoon was enjoyable for all those present, i It appears th...
