CURRENT NOTES. Pettiness Amongst Politicians. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

OURB1HT MOTES. Pettiness Amongst Politicians. Once' again the old political 'veterans are trot ting out at the sound of the election bugle. Here they are—Samuel Manger, W. A. Tren with, J. Hume Cook, W. H. Edgar, and the rest, ready for the same old routine campaign, hanging the old tin-cans, shouting in the ap proved fashion of their day, talking in the old, old style. Are we barren of new ideas, new ■hopes, new men ? Heaven knows, we need them. For we lack leadership more than ever a country has lacked it before. The current of our public life is slothful, and so dull-coloured that even stars are not reflected iipon it. We look in vain to our Federal politicians for real leadership. Original thought seems to have died in that legislature. Humdrum enjoyment of £600 a year has taken its place. Nor do we get true' leaders amongst -our State politi cians. Pettiness is there also the ruling char acteristic. Many indeed are fhe worthy and good m!en ; but where the great ? The uninspir i...

GASLIGHT PORTRAITURE [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

GASLIGHT PORTRAITUKK It is perfectly - possible xo obtain very successful results with the li/ht of one or two incandescent gas-b"rnerj or metallic lilamnnt ckctrie lights. To prevent disappointment, we would point out. that it is necessary to use fast r.rthcchromatic plates, so as to take full advantage of the yellowness of the light, to work the lens at its iull aperture, and to arrange ftie sitter in a restful pose. The exposuro may then be just as long as there seems to be a reasonable chance of the sitter remaining still. Over-exposure is, of course, quite out of the ques tion. When the conditions are favourable, as, for example, when the work is done in a small room with very light walls, exposures as short as half a minute may yield good results : but if a minute or two can be given, it will . be all the better.— "Photography."

THE [?] THEATRE ROYAL— [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 26 March 1914

B* Q«£aee»u THEATRE ROYAL— On Monday evening the last Melbourne per formance of "Joseph and His Brethren" was given at the Theatre Royal in the presence oE a erood house. The qualified success of the piece in) this city seems to argue that play goers, who are not usually regarded as of a wowserly keenness in religious matters, do not care to see Biblical stories represented upon the sta'ge. Why this should lie so it is difficult to say. There was certainly nothing irreligious or irreverent ahout "Joseph and His Breth ren," any more than there is ahout a lautern slide exhibition on a Biblical, f.ub ject shown by a clergyman to good little children in the Sunday schoolroom. The author of this par ticular play treated it ni a specially. reverent and vivid manner, and there could be no exception to the language of the characters, al though the references of all to the Deity were neither few nor far between. The manner in which the management nlacad the piece upon the stage was at once a...

Miss Trigg, Domestic. By Silas Knell. .. ^=- =J THE FAIRY GODMOTHER. Minnie had.a romantic temperament. Certain ly she did not look it in the ea'-ly morning, when the milkman was in the habit of dis .. covering -her valiantly storming the enemy— Dirt—on the hack verandah with a dexterous hair-t>rooim, her sunny locks (some, wretches called them red) screwed' into a small, hard knot not unlike the handle of a crumh-tcay at the back, of her head, her skimp skirt caught up at one side, showing a liberal allowance of bony leg 'in a white stocking and a dilapidated shoe, a black smudge from the gas-stove on her nose, and 1'her left eye blinded l.y that contrary and unpenitent whisp of hair that would per sist in breaking bounds and going on its own. At such times Minnie had the prosaic aspect of any common or back-door domestic--in fact, rather more commonplace than ordinary, lor Minnie's nose was tilted upwards, and her ■ mouth had a ralish grin.

DON'T NEGLECT. A Common Case of Piles. It May Lead to Serious Results. When, people generally understand that all such fatal diseases as fistula, ulcer of the rec tum, fissure, etc., almost invariably begin in a simple case of Piles, they . will learn • the wis dom of taking prompt treatment for the first appearance of this .trouble. Doan's Ointment is unequalled for every form of Piles, Itching, Bleeding, Protruding and Blind Piles, and hun dreds of lives have been saved by using this cheap but effective remedy right at the start, because at such times a single pot has often effected a cure, while in the old, deep-seated, chronic cases, several pots are sometimes ne cessary. Here is a case :— Mrs. S. M. Smaile, 29 Oubitt-street, Rich mond South, Melbourne, says :—"Only those who have suffered know the awful torture of Piles.
