Adolphus George Taylor. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 October 1919

Adolphus George Taylor. (By W.S.) "A. G. Taylor first saw the light at Mudgee, New South "Wales, a town which has produced several prominent men, among whom may be mentioned ilenry Lawson, Marsh Little, W. N. Willis, and W. C. Wall. It also was the birthplace of Miss Sarah Hazel tine (now Mrs. McPherson), well known in several parts of this State as the "Western Nightingale." The sub ject of this short sketch received his education at St. John's C.E. Denomina tional School, under the late Mr. S. Bent. Afterwards he became a pupil teacher, and subsequently entered the office of Mr. George Davidson, solicitor, as a clerk. While at school it was ap parent that he was a youth of great promise, and that there was a bright future in front of him. When the "Mudgee Independent" was founded in 1876 he was appointed editor, which position lie held for some time.' He next became an aspirant for parliamen tary honors, and was triumphantly re turned. On the night of his election he was dragged r...

The Auditor-General and the Port of Newcastle. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 October 1919

The Auditor-General and the Port of Newcastle. The report of the New South Wales Auditor-General for the year ended 30th June last, which was recently laid cn the table of the 'Legislative Assem bly, furnishes some interesting, but very unsatisfactory reading, for the ordinary taxpayer who taices an in telligent interest in the government of his country, and desires to see it con ducted with due regard to economy, a? well as efficiency. The document con. tains a number of scathing comments on the manner in which, during the | year under review, large amounts of public money -were disbursed by vari ous departmental heads without the authority of Parliament, and even in direct contravention of rules and regu lations applicable to eases of the kind, and certainly in defiance of all prece dents relating thereto. The thought that must rouse the ire of all who give any consideration to the question of constitutional rule and the observance by Ministers, no less than by other citizens, of ...

Candidates for Air Work. THE SEVERE PHYSICAL TEST THEY MUST UNDERGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 October 1919

Candidates for Air Work. THE SEVERE PHYSICAL TEST THEY MUST UNDERGO. The medical examination for men who wish to qualify as pilots in the K.A.F. contains unique features. Many defects which would disqualify a man for the infantry, for instance, do not prevent him from flying, and vice versa. A candidate with flat feet and varicose veins is perfectly eligible as a pilot, though he would probably be reject ad for the infantry. The 'present R.A.F. standard has been arrived at by examining early war pilots very carefully, and the object of it is to eliminate men likely to crash through nervous stress. It is divided into four stages. First the man goes through a surgical exami uation, which sums up his general physique. His sight is tested and also his colour vision. He sits cm a chair (in a rather dimly lighted room, and a medical oilicor stands at a table some little distance away, handling an odd looking square-shaped sort of box, about the size of a quarter plate camera. The doctor p...

Cost of a Big Film. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 October 1919

The cinema has been aptly called "the poor man's picture gallery," though few people realise the vast sums that are spent in providing an enter tainment that it within the reach of any child with a few pennies at his disposal. To give an idea of the lavish me thods of the great trans-Atlantic studios, let us .consider the so-called "ibig picture," which forms the chief item of an average three hours' cinema bill. The first person responsible for the production is the author. An original scenario will net anything from £20 to £100. Scripts adapted from books and plays are, curiously enough, more ex pensive than original screen work. Mary Pickford paid over £3,000 for the film rights of "'Rebecca of Sunny brook Farm," and the Vitagra'ph Com pany over £10,000 for "Within the Law." Dr. Dixon, author of "The Clansman," probably holds an unbeaten record as a harvester of film royalties. His 'profits on "The 'Birth of a Na tion, "which D. W. Griffith adapted from the story of "The Clansman...

Telephone Messages From Aeroplanes. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 October 1919

Telephone Messages From Aeroplanes. A lot has been said about the re markable new invention which enables pilots to telephone from their machines to earth and to receive telephone mes sages from the ground, 'but very little about how the telephone works. The telephone is, of course, a wire less one, and the electricity required to enable the pilot to talk is supplied by means of a little propeller, which is driven round by the air as the aero plane is flying. From the aeroplane hangs a long cop,per wire, about two hundred feet in length, and it is from this wire that the messages are sent out or received when the pilot is telephoning. The pilot has to wear a special hel met, which is muffled and padded as to be practically sound-proof; otherwise the roar of the engine is so terrific that it would be quite impossible for him to hear anything else. The telephone itself is so made that it takes no notice of any sounds but the human voice, and this is one of the most remarkable things a...

Submarines and Shell-Shock. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 20 November 1919

Submarines and Shell-Shock. It has been discovered that cases Oi people who have been exposed tp tho fear of being torpedoed are suffering from symptoms suggestive of shell shock. Dr. Clunet, in a comriiunicafJlou to the Neurological Society of Paris, has described the mental effects ob served when on board a s-hip which was torpedoed. After the first excitement following the attack it was observed that several passengers discharged guns into the air or into the sea. In other -words, the sustained nervour energy found relief in letting loose the immense energy concentrated in explosives. Similarly, it was well known at the front that a long day of 'waiting in the trenches was productive of -more cases of shell shock than a clay of active engagement with the enemy. Next'there were a few cases of sui cide among the passengers. These pas sengers were on the whole calm enough, even on the life rafts. It was only when they were on the rescuing ship I that psychoneurote phenomena began to...

Keep a stout heart, there are great things to hope for— Happiness, love, all the things that you crave.

Furniture Going Cheap [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 20 November 1919

nature Going Cheap It is likely that office furniture of all kinds will be going cheap shortly. The Office of Works is preparing to dispose of the hundreds of thousands of chairs, tables, presses, typewriters, and other things supplied to the vast number of offices opened to carry on war work of one kind or another. In deed, so many offices have been opened in all parts of the kingdom that officials appointed to take an inventory of their contents say that it would take a good sized army to complete the job in the course of the next six months. The best of the furniture, the £14 tables, for example, will not be sold, but will be used to displace inferior furniture in all the departments that will survive the war.

Seats Still Vacant. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 20 November 1919

Seats Still Vacant. He stopped outside tlio tailor's shop and gazed earnestly at the smiling pro prietor. "Good idea, isn't it?" said the latter. "Very good, indeed," said the solemn man. And he glan-ed once more at the three pairs of trousers which were hanging over the door labelled respectively, "Admission ten shillings, twelve shillings, and fifteen shillings.'' "See," said the tailor, "you can't get in without paying the price. My own idea; entirely original. If there's anything I believe in it's wit -in an ' advertisement.'' The solemn man looked again at the garments. "You haven't any reserved seats, have you?" he asked. The smile faded from the. tailor's face and he took down the tickets and groaned. This world is hard, indeed, jn humorists.

EXCELLENCE OF CONSTRUCTION is the primary consideration when purchasing a Refrigerator. An essential in this directionis theflMBER employed and the time allowed for THOROUGHLY SEASONING same. The "FALKLAND'7 differs irom all other Refrigerators on the market, in so far that it is the ONLY RLFR1GERATOR made of Austral an Timber of proved excellence, and so exquisitely French Polished as to equal any other ornamental piece of furmtnre in the home. In building a Kefrigerator, WfiRMANSHIP is, next to timber, the most important consideration. For this reason the " FALKLAND" is MADE ?BY JOINERS and not by . juniors in the wood-working trade.

The commercial isolation of the Com monwealth, -which, began soon after the outbreak of the late great war, owing to the withdrawal for employment in transport and other war work of nearly all the vessels previously engaged in trade between this and other countries of the world, caused considerable dis location of business arrangements, in convenience and loss, especially at the outset, to many mercantile firms and roiup.inios in Australia. Like most evil happenings, however, this abrupt and unlooked for rupture of trading rela tions' that had been in existence for a greater or lesser number of years brought with it compensating advan tages, and these soon proved to be so solid and remunerative as to far out weigh the injurious effects of the sud den interrupti...
