Millitary Madness. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

I i^iVlHitary Madness. If There are hints that the Labour Party is fa pooling on the matter of defence. At Zeehan, I lli the? Apple Land, the other evening Mr. O'Mal I lev talked of the "military madness." "I am I ^ffainst' -spending any more money on defence," I said he. "The promoters of military madness I are oioine; beyond the power of the people to I Pay." Who are the promoters of military mad I ness ? Not long ago: the Labour Party was J vehement claim to what credit was due ,for |j the now shape our A'ustrafian defences had taken I [ on. Since then the unions in all the comers of the Commonwealth have been heard ftom, and fcHe union sentiments are expressed in that charming phrase, "Why should the working man fight ?• He has nothing to fight for ! " The result is apparent in speeches like this of Mr. O'Malley's. To he'sure, it is not very instruc tive. What) does the good man in the q>r.aint hat mean precisely when he says he is against spending any more money on defence ?...

THE HEIGHT OF THE HAND CAMERA. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

THE HEIGHT OF THE HAND CAMERA. One of the outstandiug defects of many modern hand' cameras is that to use them with any com fort they must hot be held much higher than at the waist level, since the user has to bend ov«r the finder to see his subject. There are some brF.riches of work in which this is no drawback at all, but there are others—and they arc just thoso fn which the hand camera is most serviceable— where this low viewpoint is most detrimental t( the picture. Figure work is the best example of what wo mean. Everyone who has much experience of snapshotting- figures knows the importance in most cases ot getting the subject against a com paratively dark background, and knows also the difficulty of doing this with figures near the camera, and the instrument itself htld low down. In a great majority of cases the result is to give e baekgronnl of sky, arid even when this has been dodged or avoided in sonic way, there is still the chance that there will be some intruding white pa...

The Coal-Hewer's Cussedness. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

The Coal-Hewer's Cussedness. In two years there have been twenty - three stoppages at the State coal mine, Wonthaggi, all in the nature of strikes. There is one on now. In fact, it is < a cold day at Wonthaggi when there is not a strike ol some kind on. The history of the coal jnine has been an un furtunate one, and the business is the worst possible example of State control. When the mine was handed over to the Railway Depart ment it was hoped that our most signal success in the nature of national business enterprise would succeed in conducting the State .iijine with similar completeness, but events have not jus tified the fond expectation. Nobody seems ^ to understand precisely why it is that there is so much commotion in this particular business ; but the general impression is that the miners employed are the most grasping and unreason able body of men ever met and assembled under one management. Is this so ? Are the Gov ernment's coal miners more fortunately situ ated...

SHARPENING A TOTMMTNG KNIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

SWAT?PTCNTNfr A 'TOTMMTNG KNIFE. Those who are accustomed^ to handle tools will have no difl'-.eulty . in putting a keen edge upon the trimming lenife bv means, of an oilstone, but thosu who are not used to such things are very likely tc Ami that the stone actually leaves the knife blunt,ei than before, or if it does not have this effect, at least a great deal of work has to be put in if the edge is to be made quite sharp. The fault is thai the blade in rubbing it along the stone is not kept strictly at the same angle, and so. instead of an edge formed by two flat surfaces meeting at a taper, the edge is rounded and blunted. To avoid this, those .who seldom use a stcne will find .'t help fchein to slide the hand holding the kuiie along the table, The stone should have a few drops of olive oil pu1 on it, the knife held flat upoi. the stone, the baeV of the knife is then raised a very little, and, keep ing it at that nnglis, it is drawn along away from the euttintr cd^e.

KEY-NOTES Political Absentees. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

U Political Absentees. One item to be discussed at the for incoming Labour Conference will have the determined ap preciation of a lot of people who are not La bourites, and who have small liking for La bour principles, as a rule. The item m ques tion incorporates the idea of imposing a fine upon all members who are absent from a sit tine: without good and sufficient reason, such as an attack of smallpox, a fall down a mine, being lost in ohe bush, up in an unmanageable balloon, or run over by a motor car with not -less than five passengers aboard. There was a / day when it would have been ;?ross ingratitude to have sougiht to penalise! men who could not always spare time to their Parliamentary duties, 'but that was the day when men of the ' right kind and quality gave "what aT/ilities they had to the task of governing the country, and asked no return. That day has (led, and this century is the century of the paid poli tician-— thei professional who makes a -trade of it much as the d...

Pastor Ruth breaking the egg-shell .at - Collins-street Baptist Church : ••'•Hfe'/giveth more grace," Powerful "and artistic ' ser mon. ■ "Grace is poured into thy lips," says the Psalmist, and Oollins-street will say this of its pastor.

We have not seen this phenomenon before except with ladies on . the stage, like Irene Franklin and Ethel v. Irving;. It is graphic in the height, and a fair, if novel adjunct to the preacher.

NOT WORTH WHILE. It is certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain en vitality. It is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as- ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large number of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not incapacitate them from performing their duties, but- which decid edly prevent then from doing their best. Rheu matism, gout, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, bilious ness, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone, aiid bladder troubles are complaints which afflict many of us, a'nd which are gener ally caused by retention of uric and biliary poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would dis appear if tlie kidneys and ' liver properly per formed their functions. Warner's Safe Cure is a kidney and liver remedy "which has been suc cessful in so many cases that sufferers from any of the c...

THE LADIES LETTER HOLMBY HOUSE, TOORAK Dear Peg,— [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

HOLMBY HOUSE, TOORAK Dear Peg,— Lady Stanley is likely to set a rather dainty fashion—at least, I have seen several admiring proselytes following her lead already, so con clude that the flattering imitation will become widespread. I refer to the use of the lorgnette. At the races, at theatre and concert and for making .careful scrutiny, Her Excellency prettily manipulates a handsome pair of long-handled glasses. There is some riling almost as fasci nating and capable of interpretative expression as the movements of a- woman's fan, in the graceful use of <a. lorgnette—it can "be inflected . with all varieties of meanings. Undoubtedly it •belongs to a time when,women were graceful and leisured in their movements—when they had time to look their best. Maybe, if the lorg nette) prevails in favour, we will benefit by its influence, and an air of serenity and general graceful composure of mein will be acquired by many amongst us who at present hustle, flurry and in every modern...

Is the Totalizator Legal. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

Is the Totalizator Legal. A large amount of Victorian energy has been wasted if New South Wales experience about the totalisator is to be ours. All racegoers except bookmakers have been 'demanding the totalisator in this State, and have put money, vocal power and hard thought into the crusade. Now comes a serious assertion that after all the totalisator has been and is legal. The dis covery has been made in New South Wales by Sir Joseph Carruthers, who was Premier when the Retting Regulation Act was passed. Sir Joseph asserts that anyone can place a totali sator on a racecourse and use it, provided he gets the permission of the racing club. The popular idea that this would ,be illegal has bieen merely a delusion. The law is so silent on the point that the owner of the machine can charge any percentage he likes. The Government would have no power to interfere without a special Act of Parliament. The machine is, in the eye of the law, no different from a bookmaker and his clerk. The l...
