Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917

Jm m m ? The company had been telling some rather 'tall' yarns. It was 'Uncle's' turn. This is what he said : ''I know a fellow who, when out riding one day, seeing a fence apparently blocking the way, put his horse at it. The horse jumped well, but as he was going over the rider noticed that the fence was built right on the edge of a cliff, so he turned the horse round in mid-air and landed 'back on the safe side of the fence again !' The 'biscuit' was unanimously awarded the 'Uncle.' , It is wise to 'look before you leap.' This principle also holds good in business. You can not always make such a good recovery as the horseman in the story did.

WOMEN AT FRENCH'S FOREST [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917

WOMEN AT FRENCH'S FOREST By JEAN NEWTH. As an instance of the interest which women are taking in the work at French's Forest I may mention that a lady, with a fine earden of her own in North Sydney, after reading of the work at French's Forest, caused her gardener to go through her strawberry beds to enable her to send some plants to one settler's block. Result : A few hundred plants were called for by one soldier. What can be done even on stony -ground haa been proved by a cottage DUUt literally on a rock. Quite SO feet above its fruit.and vegetable ground Techneia is sur rounded by a fine garden, flowers in bloom. In the steep cliff on the other side a little natural grotto has been glassed in, where a goldfish J holds oway among seaweed and shells.

MODES AND MEN — — o-— , . * HEROES AND HERO-WORSHIP By PRANK MORTON. This war has served once again to proye Iha^ In the general sense, all eoldicrs are brave. It 1b not pretended that all men are brave; but the timid and cowardly ones do not wil lingly go to war. Nor, it seems, does a certain dogged bravery under fire of necessity connote possession cf other manly virtues. Or shall We sav that, wtiii* Knmr nt -ti« ('toman S._.»u in Belgium and the other hells of their making, have been courageous and daring enough when put to it, true bravery, the genuine heroic duality, in man, is somehow above and beyond, them ?, The brave man is kind, self-sacrificing, gentle. Jackson, V.C., -who returned to New South Wales last week, went simply out into the death-zone to rescue his wounded comrades when his arm had been blown off and his life was ebbing from the hideous wound.

xHUN WOMAN OBJECTIONABLE CONDUCT IN COOGEE TRAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917

HUN WOMAN OBJECTIONABLE CONDUCT, IN COOGEE TRAM. All the Germans and pro-Germans are not yet placed where they can do no harm. Two young ladies who were riding into the city in a Little Coogee tram the other day were reading aloud as they rode along, from a soldier's letter a vivid account of the rem nants of German atrocities witnessed by him in Belgium. At the conclusion the girls chorused: 'Oh, the brutes — surely they are not human beings.' Soon after as these ladies were leaving the car, a red-faced woman in black' who sat opposite and who had been darting venomous glances at them, leaned over and saying 'Schwein,' deliberately smacked both their facea The young ladies unfortun ately did not hold up the tram until she was given in charge for assault. The woman in question has long made herself objectionable to travellers by the Clovelly or Little Coogee trams by her pro-German be havious and vulgar German appearance. She is the wife of a German trader in the Pacific who was in ...

DID DARCY FIGHT? POSSIBILITIES DISCUSSED REPORTED CONrEST WITH FULTON (Special to the Mirror.) Nothing; published as to the doings of the late Lcb Darcy while in the United States has attracted as much attention from the world of fistlana in New South Wales as the article in last Mirror, in which were mentioned brief particulars of rumors of meetings between the late Maitland boy and Fulton, Dillon, and Gib bons., We did not father the story, which came to It9 from a usually reliable source, and is, we Jiave it, repeated in a letter since received by a friend of the dead lad. But there have been made lately statements which would make it fappear not at all improbable that Darcy and 'Fulton met, whatever may be the case with the other -two men. , 1 DARCY AND WILLARD. \ We have no time for the quidnuncs who are positive that there was no meeting — giving as the reason for their assurance that Darcy .would not .meet a man so much above his weight.

HUN BOMBS IN AUSTRALIAN SHIPS PUBLIC ANXIETY AROUSED [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917

HUN BOMBS IN AUSTRALIAN SHIPS PUBLIC ANXIETY AROUSED The case of the explosion on board the Cumberland has caused a great deal of public interest. ' . ? In the House of Representatives on Wednes day, the Minister for the 'Navy, Mr. Cook, stated that everything pointed to foul play, and he hoped that the Government would catch the fiends -and punish them. It has been officially stated that the Cumberland was carrying a large cargo of Australian meat destined for the Imperial Government, and probably to be need for the British and Australian troopn! Quite apart from the damage and the probable loss of the ship this will represent a very con siderable financial waste. This and other similar acts makes it clear that Australia is not yet cleared from persons with enemy sympathies and members of such organisations as the I.W.W. who will stop at nothing in order to impede the efforts which Australia is making in the great struggle for freedom. We are certain that public opinion is in favor...

BURNT TENT A DASTARDLY ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 14 July 1917

BURNT TENT A DASTARDLY ACTION. There is no doubt In the minds of. the mili tary authorities that the burning of the' recruit ing, tent in Hyde Park (Sydney) was the work of an incendiary, and there is not lacking evi dence which may be effective -in locating the criminal. At the time of the closing of the tent there was not the sign of fire in the place. There was nothing about the tent which would hold fire for any length of time, and if there had been a smouldering occasioned by the dropping of a lighted match, or a burning cigarette butt, or any other of the possible fire-starters, it would have been noticed by the park police man, or the ranger, both of whom passed the place a few minutes before it was found to be fully ablaze, and beyond hope of saving. Taking the hoax which resulted in the cover- - ing of the statue in connection with the fire, , the police have established a line along which I they will work to success. -
