Prohibiting Smoking. • -For many years tjie grievous' habit of smoking has been tolerated within the'sacred precincts of the Council Chamber during tedious stages such as reading of minutes and finance, and It is a relief indeed to enjoy a " pull at the weed " occasionally, a number of council lors as well as the "Press corner lighting up the "fragrant mixture" with thankfulness, contentment and cheerfulness. For a joke a funereal notice in white .lettering on black background. with the- words, " Smoking Prohibited," was more than two years ago pinned on the wall behind the press table by Cr. Smith, who found it in a dust-bin. About midday, as usual, councillors produced their " dudes " during-a lull in business, and the Press naturally proceeded to " load up." But Cr. Harrison, who has a Mrs. Grundy nag about him, rose and objec...

The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 1 December 1914

The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there ft Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting had, I'll try another two-iuch ad." If such there lie, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden otalr To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsougnt by men except he owes, Atid when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreojnless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise,"
