"Loud Applause!" [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

"Loud Applause 1" j The Socialistic audience Mr. O. ji. iveuuuu, I of South Africa, was addressing greeted with | loud applause his romantic yarn ci the miner, I (t.nng of consumption, who offered to go into, i the free labourers' compound at Klemfontein, | and poison the whole 500 with cyanide. It is ! Phasing to note how readily the audience ap | predated the would-be hero's great nobility of j character. He was dying—had, in fact, only a I month to live—and if the miners would only | undertake to accept the responsibility of keep ] in® his wife and children he would wipe out a w/hole army of "scabs" in a horribly painful way". (Loud applause.) Was that gathering as fiendish as its applause 'would leud a disinter ested stranger to imagine ? Could it have faced bhe spectacle of 500 poisoned men with the same influence ? We hope not. There is nothing in common between Socialism and murder, and even Mr. G. H. Kendall, after blithely admit ting that he had no aversion to the murdering...

LOOSE SCREWS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

LOOSE SCREWS. These are often a source of worry in cameras, and there are two ways of dealing with them. One is to itplace the old screw by another of rather bigger gauge, and the other is to plug the hole and reinsert the old screw. The worst method of plugging a scew-hole is sticking-, in a plain, hard wood plug and then driving in the screw again, for by this method the screw invariably gets out of its proper position, going in between the plug and the side of the hole. If hard wood is used, it must be glued in, and a new hole must be made in the centre. A very good method is to use an ex trembly soft wood or cork, for the screw then automatically finds its own centre, while the addi tional material is quite enough to hold the screw finaly. In putting together new work, which often has to be taken to pieces and rearranged several times before all is satisfactory, we always use screws of two gauges. All temporary fitting is clone with thin screws, and then when the thing is finish...

KEY-NOTES The Utility of Public Feeding. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

u The Utility of Public Feeding. The influence of the banquet and the public luncheon on political life in our time, and, in directly, upon the whole social fabric, is a iieme for some erudite philosopher who might do for chicken and champagne what the great Teufelsdoch did for clothes. A prominent judge of the parent State has recently condemned the banqfiet in good round terms. Banquet, says he, is. the botanical nam'e for a bad dinner. If he / wished to m'ake a man an enemy for life he would give him a banquet. The custom he held to be barbarous—a relic of the cannibal feast. J-Iisi fello\vM2omrrritteemen rewarded the judge with sonorous "Hear, hears"—and decided to give Lord Denman a farewell banquet ! This would imply a certain disrespect for the han'q.uet as an (institution, coupled with an inability to find a satisfactory substitute. If when fare welling a great man you do not "feed the brute," what are you to do with him ? To be sure you might give him a special theatrical p...

FREEZING MIXTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

FREEZING MIXTURES. Photographers in locations where the weather is very warm, and ii-e is scarce or entirely lacking,, are often confronted with spoiled plates, films, and prints as a result. A substitute for ice—-one that will answer the purpose—may be prepared, as fol lows :—Well mix a given amount of well-pulverised common sal ammoniac, or muriate of ammonia, with twice its bulk of saltpetre, and label it No. 1. Next set aside an equal amount of well-pulverised sal soda, or washing1 soda, as it is called, labelling this No. 2. These should be kept separate ui.til wanted for use, as it is the mixing, of the two— Nos. 1 and 2—that produces the extreme coldness. The riegree of coldness that can be produced in a solution, by placing this mixture around the. vessel containing it, depends upon the bulk of the solu tion as compared to the amount, of the mixture. Each user must work that out for himself. This mixture will freeze ice cream. Another formula one that will make ice—is as fol...

Australian Shipping Id Danger. The latest'\ shipping disaster, adding another to the long list for which Australia is Iambus, need not have been. The h't. Paul need riot have sunk, eighteen lives need not have been lost. Had Cape Moreton lighting been what it should, he, or anything like a,-hat it should be, no decently navigated ship could hav gone down 'on a quiet night in a calm sea oS Smith's Rock. But Moreton Bay lighting, in common with that' of most of the Australian coast, has been neglected for fifteen years. It consists of a 5000-Candle power light on the cape, and an. ■auxiliary light leading directly over the dread ed Smvth's Hock. The auxiliary light has been little less than a lure to destruction. "It is. absolutely unnecessary," wrote Commander B re wis. Federal lighthouse expert, when he in spected 1 the sea approach to Brisbane. "It, should be discontinued, and the Cape Moreton. light increased to 134,000 candle power." ♦ * * * If a 5000-candle power light is left t...

THE CARE OF LENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

THE CARE OP LENSES. A lens should remain for an indefinite time in as good condition as when it leaves the manufac turer's hands, provided a few simple rules are ob served. Protect the lens as much as possible from dust and fingCT-niarks. Keep the cap on when the lens is not in use. Do not subject, the lens to sudden changes or ex tremes of temperature. Do not expose it to the heat of the sun or of steam-pipes, nor leave it in damp places. Never use acids of any kind for' cleaning, nor laci-uer, polishing, preparations, alcohol or other solvent on the lens. Do not allow the lens to fall or get a sudden jar. Occasional cleaning is not only, advisable, but also very necessary when the leiises show dust, finger-marks, or moisture on the surface. Use a well-washed linen handkerchief only. If dusty, blow oft the dust first, then wipe. To remove finger marks; or moisture, breathe upon the surface, and wipe : always wipe lightly and with a circular movement ; a camel-hair brush is convenie...

Teaching Shooting Without Rifle Ranges. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

Teach!tie: Shooting Without Rifle Ranges. The meteoric Inspector . peneral, Sir. Ian Hamilton, advises our riflemen to practise as siduously two styles of shooting--b'ullseye> shoot ing, and cfuiclc-firing or snap-shooting, "I ob served' shooting effects closely during1 the Russo Japanese War," states Hamilton. "(Treat num bers were killed at long range, and at the short ranges, up to seventy or eighty yards. Not much execution was done at the intermediary ranges. The lessons are important." Excellent advice, these words of the reformer of the British Army nVusketry methods. O-.ir, military men^ and riflemen have shown themselves ap propriately interested. Hut we can't hope to use either the British fleneral's advice or our riflemen's enthusiasm unless we provide two es sential things in rifle practice—rifles and rifle ranges. The trainees are cc.rlainly not getting the latter. 'Mr. Cook admitted this, after the exposure of the position ()y "Punch." Every military officer admits ...

SPORTING Turf Flotsam and Jetsam. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

Turf Flotsam &£&d Jetsam. By "Omega." Five-figure stake-winners :wero a *ew years ago a rarity amongst Australian racehorses ; but, thanks to increased stakes, no fewer than four horses have oarned that distinction tills season. Duke Foote, who has not raced since the early Spring, is now in sixth place amongst notable Australian winners, with «i total record of twelve wins and £14,069 earned in rating prizes. Beragioon, with five wins and sundry Ijndnor places, has won £11,720 in stakes. (Jider has secured six wins \and £.1.1,080, ana Radnor's record is nine • wins and £10,002 in stakes. Three of these four horses will bn racing at the Sydney Cup Meeting, ,and they may be expected to further inYprove the r lU'cserit good totals. Present-day horses have, however, a long way to go to excel Carbine's total o! thirty-three wins and £29,476 in stakes, or Trafalgar's re cord of twenty-four wins and .£22,111.

THINNESS IS DANGEROUS. EMINENT SPECIALIST TELLS HOW THIN PEOPLE. MAY PUT ON FLI SH tA„ND BECOME STRONG, PLUMP, AND HEALTHY. Thinness is unnatural and dangerous. It is not necessarily the cause ci consumption, in digestion, liver or catarrhal trouble ; but j in nearly every instance it is an indication that something is radically wrong;. Ver y thin .people miay feel that they are perfectly well; but after thirty years of active experience 1 can truly say that. I, have never seen an extremely thin man or woman who was. really healthy. Thin people are thin because they do not assimilate their food properly. They may eat heartily, but their food does not make flesh, simply be cause the assimilative organs are lacking ' in nerve force. This is why thin people are so often nervous, sleepless, and become addicted to the use of drugs. To supply this nerve force a nerve Pood must be taken, and I have had remarkable results in nearly every case from the use of a tonic nerve food which contain...

THE LADIES LETTER HOLMBY HOUSE. TOORAK Dear Peg,— [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

HOLMBY HOUSE. TOORAK Dear Peg,- ji | 7k there anything quite so direct, and to the point, as the working of a child's mind ? On a recent morning a landowner, whose estate is not more than sixty-live miles from Melbourne, started per motor car from town, for his home. Saying good-bye to relatives, one of them re marked that he would have a lonely run. "Oh, no," he cheerily answered ; "sure to pick up a swagman or two on the road." And this re minding him, he commandeered a supply of silver in case of hearing a more than usually hard luck story. Imagine the amusement of the family on reading in the newspaper next morning, thai the "swagmen" he had picked up on this occasion wore Sir Arthur .Stanley and his aide de-camp. whose car had broken down some miles frcm their destination, where a civic welcome and a hot lunch were awaiting them,.. His youngest daughter, who was staying in town, listened with wide-eyed interest to the recital of her father's rescue of His Excellency from an awk...

Mistress of the South Pacific. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

Mistress of the South Pacific. The fate of the New Hebrides has 'been settled, by the French and British Foreign Ministers. No one except Mr. Cook anil Mr. Glynn knows here what the decision is, hut the shrewd guess may 'be made that the Condominium has been patohed. up. The islands will remain Franco British, Wut the joint court will b£ given largely extended powers. This will mean that the Commonwealth's offer to take charge of the islands and purchase the French interests has not been accepted. But it iocs not mean that the islands will not eventually pass under Aus tralian control, nor that the interests of French and British settlers will not a^ain c'.ash. Races can Tre welded if they give allegiance to one flajg, but not if they remain under different Governments and serve different rulers. The natural destiny of the New Hebrides and all other South Pacific islands is to reach the maximum of their development under the shel tering wing of Australia. The great mainland must ult...

The Strange Discovery About the Totalisa or. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 2 April 1914

The Strange Discovery About the Total isaor. What fools the law will have made oi race goers, punters, tote agitators, and moralists if ''.Punch's" suggestion last week becomes a legal fact .'"I unch" asked under what law the tota lisa'oor was prohibited from use on a Victorian racecourse. The. answer is, "Under no law." Ma'ny authorities have during the last few, days agreed with '-'Punch's" reading of the Lotteries and Gaming Act. In fact, no one has .been found to. disagree with it. The authorities hold up their hands in amazsmunt and exclaim., ' 'Fancy being tricked all these years in this way." As the "Age" put it on Monday : "Betting on racecourses is sanctioned by the Act, and as there is no direct exclusion of tote betting from racecourses it may be assumed that tote betting is not necessarily illegal. It is difficult to see how any form of watering' on a racecourse can be an offence as long as the wager be made in respect of •a horse, pony or trotting race. If the new readi...
