HUGHESISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

HTJGHESISM. — 1^~- Biologists tell us that when the head of a certain creature of the li zard kind is cut off it grows an other head facing in the opposite direction, so that we get 'a two headed creature advancing which ever way it goes. When Little Beit digo Billie lost his Labour head iJy expulsion from the Labor Party he grew another one, and this Tory one is a contradiction of the first one. Perhaps our new political lizard, which has all a lizard's pro penstty for showing itself in the sunlight, is not altogether respon sible for the denials of his ' one time professions. The new and other head with its mental stodkin trade, endowed with a quality of inverse instinct, by the necessities and importunings of a new en vironment,, claiming the natural privilege of a head advances in a direction best suited to his worldly and pecuniary interests. With the old and original head in the dust-heap of politics, the new one seems to have carried him into the zone of the flesh-pots where ...

Mimes, Mummers and Melody-Makers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

Miaes, Mniicrs ill Meioii-Mi kers Fine melody from Ernest Parkcs at the Shaftesbury. Flows nicely and easily, too. I like the lullaby song of Olive Seddon. Wish I could lure her to croon me off to sleep these brick field nights. The Shaftesbury has something exceptional in the. Ascots. Baby Ascot shows how to get „ round a room in original style. Got a touch of humor, too. .The chair balanc ing is good and neatly done. Don't miss this turn, not many better about. _. _* The first time Elvie Stagpoole and her girls have a night off 'what about a moonlight picnic, crabs, etc.?' We want to be in the party though. If they make merry as well as they dance, some party, eh! ? Lou Mitchell features something different from what he used to do on the fields. Gets the audience on the laugh alright. Can't take eggs seriously, except election time. Fairy ballets, transformation scenes, matinees, and gifts for the kiddies. All' these are in store in the 'Silver Slipper' pantomime, opening on the 2...

Snacks & Snaps [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

SHUCKS 6 SRflpS Justice Ewing, of Tasmania, is getting himself disliked. Pancy giv ing a policeman seven years for shooting a civilian. 'Wot's the place coming to?' The; lawabid ing cops of Tassv sueeested attack ing the escort and releasing the pri soner. Don't like their own medi cine. But if a pleeceman can shoot up a citizen when he feels inclined, then a civilian should have the' privilege of shooting a cop when his liver is out of order. Poor old rule that won't work both ways. If these policemen and military madmen are not sat on hard, it will soon be necessary to carry a- gun when, you go out, and use it, too. But you could have bet your dwelling upon the political mob in charge in the Apple Island to get their police pet out of trouble. They stick to their own. And they stuck this tune. Three months instead of seven years ! Hugh Mabon got in a dirty -aie ? on Billy Ooze. William Mud said that Mahon had traded on his reli gion and nationality. Mahon in vited him by letter to...

Belmont Bangs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

Belmont Bangs ? u ? (By 'Solon.'* Our annual ratepayers' meeting passed off quietly after all. What happened at the cricket match recently? Surely it is time a meeting of the club was called. Wake up, Wasso. It's up to the Road Board to see that the sanitary work of the dis trict is not carried out in the day time. At present it is no unusual thing to see the 'day' cart on Guildford road. as early as four o'clock. This is very offensive during summer time. The Hall 'fete' held last week was a great success. Another vic tory for Bill Newey. Several new records were made, including one for ice cream eaters. One young lady consumed no less than 98 cups and then left to go to supper. Great interest is being taken lo cally in the forthcoming State Elec tions. Alick is a 'cert,' but no chances are being thrown away. The young ladies in particular are putjng great vim into their work. How about regulating the price of meals at the forthcoming racing car nival? It is time a little attention...

Her Lady-ship's Party. A Modern Xmas Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

Her Lady ship's Party. A Modern Xmas Story. The other day Lady Massey Har ris gave a party — a Xmas party — to which a large crowd of 'right- thinking' people were invited. As £h is paper didn't receive a card, our reporter disguised himself as the 'Weekly Judge,' and so got in and eventually out again. 'Everyone' was there. Lathlain, Alf. Carson, Jimmy Mitchell, Percy Brunton, Mr. Tuckfield, Harry Boan, Ralph Potts — and lots of skirt — and Lady Mas sey JIarris harvested 'em all in beau tifully. As she shook hands witn J J. Simons she gushingly inquired, 'Where is that dear Mr. Chandler who signs things in your paper so iiicely?' J. J. was flabbergasted for a moment, and tihen suggested she must mean Courtney — but her lady ship was not a bit unaplombed, and said that the two boys were so much alike she couldn't teU them apart, and introducing Simons to Mr. Lath* lain she left them playing a game of 'noughts and crosses.' There were lots of other games too: 'Hunt the slipper,' orga...

Maylands [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

Maylands (By 'Cynic.')- The latest regulations issued by ?the Water Supply Department hit Maylands very hard. Many house .wives' patience is taxed ' enough already waiting for the water to come through the pipes, without having the acid put on prohibiting watering the garden. Our water supply is a disgrace to the adminis tration. The station platforms are being asphalted. It will be a great im provement — in winter. How the summer sun will treat pedestrians having to stand and wait for a train must be left to conjecture. I have an idea myself already. Unfortunately the local pictures have not prevented crowds of resi dents from frequenting the city (and spending their money there). Loose cash for amusements should patriotically fill the coffers of local enterprises. JBuring the week, ratepayers, let those gentlemen who constitute the Road Board know they were noth ing more than their representatives —that they were not tile 'Lords I am.' If ratepayers doubt that the Board is not doi...

INTOXICANTS IN LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

INTOXICANTS IN LITERA TURE. 'Even, the. names of intoxicants,' urges an American Prohibition cir cular, 'should be omitted from our literature.' When 'Tom' Daly saw that he sadly sat him down, and wrote that bit of 'Virtuous Blank Verse': Begin with Dickens. Oh, my dear, His pen was much too handy In praise of pots of bitter ? And tumblefuls of ? . And Bobbie Burns! We must cur tail His lines that grow too frisky With talks of 'foaming swats' And goblets 'fu' ' of ? . No tale in praise of any inn. Of cellar, vault or garret, v May say a word of Holland ? Or even table — -. Our writers now shall all be dumb On things that once were merry; No talk shall be of steaming ? Nor glass of golden ? .

A Foreman's Fix To work: or Not To [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

A Foreman's Fix To work : or m n The plumbers are on strike. In common with the rest, the plumbers * at the State Implement Works are out also. For a couple of days their foreman (who is also a mem ber of the Plumbers' Union) remain ed at work. The Union decided he should come out also. He did so. The manager of the Works was greatly perturbed. He arranged a conference with all the foremen on the Works, and delivered himself ?thus: What was his position in the event of, say, a strike of all the men on the Works? Would they be, loyal to him or go on strike? Said he: No man can serve two masters. He wanted a decision from them. - In the event of industrial trouble — would they stand by him — or what? . In effect he told them that unless they stood by him in a crisis of this kind, they were no good to him. He quoted what had been the prac tice in regard to foremen in the past in these circumstances (ignor- - ing the fact, of course, that times are changing quickly). The fore men are no...

we spell it will if [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 12 December 1920

WeSpellil wiiim K' 'A military regulation has been promulgated in Dublin forbidding any persons placing their hands in their pockets. Anybody trans gressing will be immediately shot on sight of the military.' THAT was the substance of a cable received in Perth early this week and published in the daily Press. THAT is what British 'culture' has arrived at in Ireland as a solvent of the distressing prob lem there. Isn't it about time that we spelt it' with a 'k.' Our fanatics became livid in the face during quite recent years because Germany spelt culture with a 'k.' They said it stood for 'German' militarism and demoniacal despot ism. 'Kultur' was an accursed thing. Liars of the billionth de gree of magnitude were turned loose armed with big ink-bottles and realms of paper to prove that 'kultur' meant 'corpse-factories' and kiddies with 'haHds chopped off.' That these liars have since been unmasked is not to the credit of those devilish creatures which paid them. Rather the reverse. ...

Funny how pedestrians who can't afford a 'car' like fb ridiChtat the Ford. Money is the root of all evil, ex cept when it grows in our own gar den. All work and no play makes the girl with the piano next door popu lar. Nowadays, ' a shilling is about as useful as a glass eye at a key-hole. A woman's real idea of the Devil is the woman next door who talks about her. The woman who says she is afraid of man is the first to blow out the light.
