MUSIC AND MUSICIANS DREAM OF GRONTIUS. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
MUSIG AND MUSICIANS (By "Orpheus.") DREAM OF GRONTITUS. The deathbed of a dear friend inspis-r Cardinal Newman to write "The Dream of Grontius." Grontius, while he lirs a-dying, dreams of his soul's transportation to the unlse(.n world and its reception by the minister ing agnets of the Almighty's will. In a sublime strain of poetic power the mrs teries are pictured that the hidden acro-: the portals of the tomb. The straining eye of a hungering fancy discloses its idea of "maybee' of the soul's future. The| Cardinal's poetic masterpiece is one or! the most original poems of the nineteenlth century. That such a poem should at tractt theattention or musicians was but to be expected. Several muscians of ac knowledged eminence in their art a' tempted to set "The Dream of Gerontins to music. The task was formnidable; require da poet, a mystic, a dreamer o0 dreams, to do justice to such a subpect. Sir/ idward Elgar has succeeded where so many have hesitated to risk failure.

HEAD OF THE HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
HEAD OF THE HOUSE Who should be the head of the home? Men, of course, will say that the hus band should be the head, and the claim is backed by the following arguments: The man earns the money on which the home is run. He belongs to the "stron ger" and "superior" sex. It is derogatory to his manhood and humiliates him in the eyes of his fellow men if his wife is the "boss." It isn't natural for a woman to take the lead and be the head of the home. To the above, some would add that in the marriage service the woman promises to "obey" her husband, and that ought to settle the matter. There is, too, the address at the end of the service, in which is laid down the law as to a wife's posi tion. It is true, of course, that in most cases the man earns the money on which the home is run. But who does the real "running?" Who is the administrator, the economist, the thinker-out of ways and means to make both ends meet? The wife, of course. Obviously, she, as the spender of the money, is as im...

PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW LAWS "The News" Will Assist With Articles (Specially Written for "The News.") [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
PEOPLE SHOULDI NOW IWS "The News" Will Assist With Articles (Specially Written for "The News.") As 'Mr. Justice Gordon so happily quoted in a recent admission of "pups" to the Bar, Blackstone, that grea:. jurist, wrote that it is part of the edu cation of a gentleman to know the iaw of England. Australians. including South Austra. lians, have inherited much of the great law of England. Local modifications excepted, South Australian law is Eng lish law. Equally witih Blackstone's compeers, South Australians should un derstand the laws they live under. For the twenty-four hours of the day the Australian citizen is subject to the law. It hedges him about walking and sleep ing. It may be the destruction of his house by fire, it may. be a motor col lision in the street, it may be jury ser vice, it may be a business contract, it may be "Jay" walking, it may simply be the intelligent interest that the good citizen takes in the affairs of the day at any time he may wish to know something of...
MASTER SPHINX Bruce Supreme HOUSE ALMOST DUMB [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
MASTER SPHINX Bruce Supreme HOUSE ALMOST DUMB (By Harry Gullett.) The progress of the Commonwealth session has been a remarkable personal triumph for 'Mr. Bruce. The smooth and swift passage of business is almost without parallel in the 23 years of the Federation. The Prime Minister's achievement has exceeded the anticipa tions of even his warmest admirers. iMr. Bruce reigns supreme in a House which has in miraculous fashion be come almost dumb. The Opposition, if not altogether voiceless, is apparently incapable of even effective criticism; of determined fighting obstruction there is none. And the two wings of the Ministerial supporters, with slight exceptions. are almost absolutely silent. Mr. Bruce has the House sub dued and tame. Business marches strongly, and it looks as if the Prime Minister will get away to the Imperial I'onfercnce free of the charge that he has used his majority to bludgeon im portant measures through a jaded and angry House at unseemly hours of the morning....
THAT LEAVES 8 Cat That Fell 120 Feet FATE OF TIDLES. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
THAT LEAVES 8 Cat That Fell 120 Feet FATE OF TIDLES. This will introduce you to Tiddles It is a name of simple dignity, but it belongs to a genius. Tiddles of Somerset House. If you go to Somerset House in Mar tin place, Sydney (says "The Sydney Sun)," the caretaker will show you a light well that is 120 ft. in height, run ning down eight storeys. At the top he will show you his kitchen window. And on the sill he will show you a series of vertical scratches. And then he will show you Tiddles. The connection between Tiddles and the the scratches, the window sill and the drop of 120 ft. is a thrilling one. Last week, Tiddles was observed on the flat roof. Nothing more was seen of her until late on the night of the next day. Then suspicious noises began to float up the light-well, and the caretaker turned an electric torch into its depths. Far down on the ground below he saw Tiddles. TIDDLES FELL. This is what happened. According to established custom, she had been walk ing along the s...

General Gye's Great Grub Army [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
e?neraB Gyes r at rub Ary I was walking along a country road when I discovered 71 fine fat grubs, all huddled together in the middle of the road, and looking just like a plate of porridge in color and in shape. They were perfectly still, so I sat down, very quietly on a log and watched. Presently one big fat chap in front of the mob (I called him Birdwood) tapl)ed the ground with his tail. It was ,vidently a signal to the remaining 70 stalwart followe.t. I know there were 71 of them, becau.e I counted them during the evacuation. Every time1 Birdwood Birdwood tapped, the whole regiment capped the ground in the same way, starting. from Birdy, and then to the second it -command, and then righti down to the last grub. -Every time thel squ'ad tapped they moved forward an eighth of an inch, and then remained perfectly still until the next word of command was .received from their lea der. t noticed that, with the exception of his nibs, the rank and file kept their heads buried beneath each...
