STAR PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 24 April 1914
STAR PICTURES. The popularity of- the 'Star Pictures was again evidenced on 'Wednesday ' evening, when a crowded house at tended, and witnessed a programme of a high order of merit, all the sub- - jects being of an interesting and en joyable character. The star picture, . "The Burning Train," was an emo tional and impressive story. It de picted a search for a missing child, who had been stolen from a circus, and fell into the hands of a bad wo* man, who, recognising his talents as a violinist, used them to her own ad vantage. Finally, he is taken to see a circus, and while there recognises and calls out for his mother. Before the mother can reach the child, how ever, the villianous woman picks liim up and makes her escape to a train, but is closely followed, by one of the circus hands, who manages to jump on the back of the train, and making his way along the top of the carriages, eventually gets through the window of the compartment, where the woman and boy are. After recovering th...

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. MR. FISHER'S MARE'S NEST. (From our Special Correspondent*) Mr. Fisher takes himself very seri ously In the Federal Parliament. He never has understood, and does not, now understand, why the electors did not keep the Labor Party in power, It is possible that he may admit rea sons why the Labor .Party should be defeated, -but Mr. Fisher was so im pressed with his own financial admin istration that he regards his being sent from the Treasury as a mental aberra tion on the part of the electors. More than that, lie is persuaded that the electors .never intended to do it. lie begins each session with a motion of r.o confidence in the Government. He | kuows that there is iu>t the least chance of carrying such a motion. No I one of the Liberals is likely to leave •Mr. Cook on any question and vote with the Labor Party. -Mr. 'Fishet thinks that the electors are listening to him, and lie moves his no confi dence motions to show the electors that he is the watchman on t...

LOVE, THE MASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 24 April 1914
LOVE, THE MASTER. Bet there be no question of suprem acy, nothing of the Btyle "I'm master here; or, please to recollect I am the mistress of this house," with newly married couples. When a young couple arrange to enter on a new life together, and run in double harness, each should be too careful of the' other's feelings to hurt them In the smallest lota. - That there should always be a rec ognised head to every household goeB without saying; no true woman would dispute this; for the reins of govern ment are not exactly her province, and a woman naturally loves a man who can hold his own. True, she likes to feel that she can manage him In certain things; that he usually refere to her, comes round to her way of thinking in the end; but, on the other hand, no woman likes to see her husband too easily swayed. Women prefer, as a rule, the man who acts his part as master; It takes away a great responsibility from their shoulders, and no woman, unless she be of a strangely domineering, ma...
