Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914

Senator Millen flies while Mr. Fisher travels by train. This . is the advantage of being a Cabinet Minister. What an opportunity con fronts Mr. Cook, whom the. Opposition Leader proposes to cut out by rushing rapidly up and down the eastern coastline. Mr. ' Cook is trustee of the Commonwealth's bi planes, and with well - organised system could outdo his rival hv flying on ahead. "Punch" guarantees that if the Prime Minister flies ahead of Mr. Fisher, addressing the elec tor^ occasionally from mid-air, he will make enough converts to assure him long laa^e ol power. Those he doesn't convince iie, will inca pacitate with "aeroplane necks." The coming Federal and State elections will be sadly dis appointing if candidates do nrjt travel by aero plane. The advertisement would be stupendous in country districts. It is up to the parlies to get their men up in the air. Eric Harrison is to be the real pioneer of aviation in Australia. He is going to teach young Australians how to fly—a much m...

MOTOR NOTES PALMER [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914

By "Magneto Sparks." Mr. Harry Busteed, the Australian aviator, has of late been experimenting with a Bristol tractor biplane, and has put up some exceptional performances in speed variation , and climbing in the air. Recently ■ he climbed 1200 feet in 58 seconds, with a passenger, and a 3^ hours' supply of petrol. The cycle car can hardly be reckoned as the car lor our rough Australian roads unless, in its manufacture, special attention is paid to strength in building. Many complaints have reached my ears of late 'from owner? who have had trouble with their cycle cars when run ning outside the suburban radius. . Of course, the blame cannot be laid to the door of the car when we give full thought to the state of our country roads When I say "country roads," I do not refer to roads in the back-blocks, but to the roads which lie at our suburban door. Why, to tackle sdme of the- streets and roads inside Melbourne is an eftort requiring patience arid perseverance! Go a little further ou...

MUSIC. Miss Wynne Macoboy. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914

By "Orfeo." Miss Wynne M&coboy. Bendigo is undoubtedly the homo of the song bird. And here for our new winter season comes another to gladden < the oar ; or, at least, give" a promise that she will gladden it in the near future. She comes of a well-known and highly-esteemed family in the gold regions, amongst whom beautiful voices are not . alto 'gether unknown. Undoubtedly, though still only a shadow of its future self, Miss Macoboy, the subject of our present notice, has not only the making of a luscious contralto voice, but a voice "which, even now, is singularly fluent, deep, rich in. texture, and even and wide in com pass. Above all, she has high intelligence . in her interpretative department—a most import ant 'qualification. If she would condescend to accept a little advice we would offer it in the direction of, giving the most painstaking care in the enunciation of her words, so that every phrase of a song shall reach the hearing of every normally-eared pe...

SYDNEY SHOWS [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 March 1914

SYDNEY SHOWS When Eugen Sandow to-ired the world lie did most of his demonstrating not on himself, but upon James Athlone, his chief assistant. Ath lone possessed then, and possesses now, extra ordinary physical development, and for absolute symmetry is a'finer man than Saniluw himself. Athlone, however, gave up working for some body-else, and devised a vaudeville act of his own. With two others of remarkable develop ment he built up a turn which at oiu'e attained popularity, and secured him a long series of en gagements. The Golden dthlones are now ap pearing at the Tivoli Theatre, and are one of the 'brightest—in a literal sense—turns on the big bill which is being presented. The three members of the troupe wet themselves with something which wears all the appearance of gold paint. Hence their name. Thus arrayed, they give splendid representations of classical groups of statuary. Then. work characteuscil by rare finish, for every one of them is a past master in the art of posing ;...

THE BACILLUS OF LONG LIFE. To no living man does humanity owe a greater debt of gratitude than to PROFESSOR ME rOHN'IKOFP for (his discovery of the phagocyte of the human blood, and the ireans of prevention of prema ture old age. In connection with the latter the lelarned Professor holds that old age is not physiological, but essentially pathological; that arterio-sclerosis which is the expression thereof strikes man far too early, and is caused hy the existence of microbial poisoning in the colon and large intestine, with the consequent intestinal fermentation and autointoxication, hy which are produced most affections of the digestive tract, particularly the various forms of enteritis in' the child and adult, contamina tion and affection of the neighbouring organs ; constitutional; intoxication that afreets all the organic systems ; heart, kidney, nervous sys tem, and skin, and .premature senility of the organism by arterio-sclerosis.

SYDNEY SHOWS [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

SYDNEY SHOWS No Limit can be set to the lengths to which ■vaudeville ' artists will go in search of novelty for their, turns. Of course, when real novelty is secured the gain is a r<ch one. Mdile. Dolores Vallecita must be awarded the honour of hav ing Wrought to Australia the most novel and striking turn yet seen on the vaudeville stage here. Wrestling ponies,' trained' roosiers, acting dcvgs, performing monkeys and all the rest of the animal "turns" must hide their heads after "the Leopard Lady" has staged her show. She owns six full-grown Indian leopards, -and is as fond of "them and as chummy with them as though they ' were Persian cats. She has trained them to perfection. They obey her every whim, performing tricks and "stunts" which would be wonderful if they were really only domestic cats.

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

THE WHI8PERING GALLERY. What his become o£ Protection ? It has dis appeared, like Jonah, into the deep sea. Bad luck attended those who last year nailed their Protection principles to the masthead. It seemed, indeed, to be the talisman of ill-omen..' THE WAY OF SALVATION. (Mr. O'Mfilley draws attention to the fact that Tasmanian farmers who opposed him have been afflicted by the Lord with blight and grub.) The Farmer.—"My wheat's rotting, my cows have got pleuro, my horses are dying, my children have measles, and the wife's down with rheumatism. Oh, let up, King, and I'll vote for you next election." And so, at the comnncncemcnt of a new voyage, it is cast overboard. Not a voice has arisen to regret its fate, not even a newspaper de plores its departure. Hut Jonah came back, and cats come back, and dead speeches arise from their sepulchres. Even so will Protection become a substantial issue ci the Federal fight. Labour has no more intention of leaving the tariff to tlie Interstate C...

Lady Helen Munro-Ferguson says her hus band, the newly-appointed Govcrnor-O'eneial of Australia, is so fond of travelling that he has earned the nickname of "The Tramn." This Rives us a hint of new developments in Vice Regal locomotion. You can't call a man in a train or a motor a tramp—lie has to be on his own -two feet, with a swag upon his shoulder and a billy by his side. Hut we .shall not call Ronald "The Tramp." !n Australia it will be "The Sundowner." Andrew Fisher is plainly of the opinion that the dissolution is not far off. So is Mr. Hughes. There are dreadful notes of prepara tion. Politicians are abroad in the land, tell ing the electors all about everything, and ex plaining precisely why this happened and' that didn't. The tone, too, is >yr.ry bitter. Andrew is smiting all round with a heat quite unusual in him, and has half-a-do7.en Ministers angrily snapping replies all at once. When that 'disso lution does come—'double or single—things will be lively from Perth to...

Photo Focus. A PHOTOGRAPHIC TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

Photo Tows. By 'Lena." A PHOTOGRAPHIC TRICK. Quite a number of tricks with the camera are; possible if one possesses a perfectly black back ground. or, what comes to the same thing-, if one can photograph with a doorway leadilie into a large, darkened room as the background. As an example of what is possible with such an arrange ment, one may first of all expose a plate on a full-length figure in the doorway, marking the boundaries of the figure oil the ground-glass as a guide in the subsequent operations. The figure shouM bo on quite a small scale on the plat.e. A glass bottle may then be placed on a stand against the background or doorway, and the camera brought right up to it, so that the bottle is on a large scale, and is so placed in the picture that the figure already impressed upon the plat*} will fall well within the bouffdaries of the bottle. When this luts been arranged, a second exposure is given to the plate, this, time the bottle being the subject, an'i on developing it...

The State and the Pucr. Everything is possible in a democracy ; but feui 'minds would h'ave dreamed \ of even. <a demo cratic G-overnment taking over the management of a prize-fighter, yet that is the position in which the Home Secretary of Queensland (Mir. J. G\ Appel) stands to Jerry Jerome, the weil known coloured middle-weight who has been doing so much fighting in New South and the Banana State-lately. Jerrv, being an aborigi nal, is under the guardianship of the State, and his affairs are managed by the o:Iicials of the Homo Secretary's department. The Home Secre tary is rather proud of his performances in this capacity, and points out with zlee : "We look after Jerry Jerome ; we look after his bank account, too. We saved over £1200 dur ing the first year in which we took control. I may '.idd I made the contract under which he is to fight Dultourg, the Frenchman." The I-Io'me Secretary has satisfied his own conscience, no doubt ; but this announcement is likclv to m...

DARK-ROOM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

DARK-ROOM NuT.ES. Chemicals arc often sold in paper packets : but they should never be kept in the packets, but transferred as soon as possible to a properly corked or stoppnred bottle. This applies not onlvr to those whii'h spoil on exposure to the air, but also to thoso which do not. The paper, especially ordi nary wrapping paper, is a poor protection from contamination in a place where there is a possi bility of it getting splashed, or of the packet being put down upon some spilt chemical of a deltci'uescent nature. When a -lacket of single or double transfer paper, oil pigment paper, or carbon tissue is opened, it is well to write lightly in pencil on the back of each piecj its exact nature. The different gela tinised papers are remarkably alike in appearance, and po are various colours of carbon tissue, how ever much the developed pictures may differ. A plato which appears to gather density in the developer very slowly—so much so that one is tempted to regard it as a failure—ma...

The Prison Workhouse. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

The Prison Workhouse. Jfewj South Wales has tried the idea of mak ing prison something different from a lordly pleasure house for that class of law'-bixakers to whom the ordinary sentence of six months proved no ■ deterrent. The class of delinquents to whom the new method is chiefly applied are husbands and fathers w;ho decline to do their ■duty to wives, children, and, indirectly, to so ciety.

THE UTMOST SIZE OF A LANTERN PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

THE ITI'MDST SIZE OF A LANTERN PICTURE. Although a lantern plate is 3£ x 3£in., it is not practicable for a picture of that size on it to b<3 shown. There must be a certain margin for mask ing and hinding the slide : while as very few pic tures indeed are seen at their best in a square shape, it follows that the available area on the lantern plate for so much of the . picture as is to be shown on the screen is generally about. 3 x 2 Jin. If the amateur is using a 3J x 2Jin. camera, ho will find that, provided he takes care to get hi* picture well on the plate, he can show it properly on a lantern slide made from it. by printing on a plate instead of on paper. If his camera is smaller than this, he will also have 110 trouble, since he need not fill up the "lantern plate completely ; but if he is working a larger size, he will almost cer tainly find that his picture is loo lar.ge to go 011 the lantern plate within the limits just mentioned.
