AUSTRALIAN SOLDIERS IN LONDON [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
AUSTRALIAN SOLDIERS IN LONDON Private Harry Bromley, writing from Rollestlone, England, to his mother, gives some interesting de tails of what he saw in London. "London is about three hours' train ride from here,"- he says. "We had to march a mile through the streets to headquarters past Westminster Abbey and St. Paaul's. Just as we came to St.' Paul's the bells started to chime. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. There were hundreds of people standing around the front waiting for them to start. "At the 'Anzac Buffet' Austr. lians can go in and eat as much as they like and drink coffee and tea and get all sorts of nice cakes and pastry and sandwiches, and it costs nothing. "There-is one thing that looks aw ful and disgusting about the hotels here. It does not matter what hotel you go in, you will see almost as many women; as men. In some hotels you s'ee nearly all women and young girls. It is just the same m the west end of London-the aris tocratic end. They ...

BOXING. ATHLETIC COMBINATION. "YACKUM" STOPS BROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
BOXING. ATHLETIC COMBINATION. "YACKUBM" STOPS BROWN. There was a fair attendance In "Snowy" Flynn's marquee on Zatur day night last, when another good programme was witnessed. -.The principal attraction of the evening was a contest to a finish between Jack "Yackuni" and "Tiny" Brown, two members of the IMun gari squad. "Yackum" is well known on the fields as a game boxer with a fair knowledge of the art o1 self-defence. On the other hand Brown was regarded as a novice locally, but the tremendous advantages he had physically ever his opponent were thought, by many good judges to-more than counteract the skill of. "Yackum." However, he was lacking in one of the most essential qualifications of a pugilist, yis., gameness, and expressed his satisfaction when, the, towel was thrown in by his seconds during the progress of the fifth round. Up to that period, little damage had re sulted to either man. "Yackum" was certainly ahead on points, but he had little chance of landing a knock-out o...
MR. HUGHES' SPEECH Melbourne, Dec. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
MR. HUGHES' SPrECH Melbourne, Dec. 1. • Senator Gardiner continued the t debate in the Senate to-day on the SMIinisterial statement remarking that the country had a right to Jl know whether the Liberal party o was supporting the Government. If t not, the Government had no a majority, and should not continue : in office. It had been stated that negotiations had been proceeding between the Government. and that party. Senator Millen: That is not c~r rel ets Senator Gardiner said that it was public talk. Senator Findley: The dogs bark it in the streets. Senator Gardiner "id there could be no possible objection to~ an open support of the Government by the Liberals, but there should be no secret arrangements. There was a widespread belief thait the price of support was to be a watering down of the financial proposals of, the Government. Was it a condi tion that there was to be no legisla r tion other than war legislation ' He I resented the pessimistic utterances of Senator Millen as to t...
WESTONIA GOLDFIELD. Westonia, Nov. 29. Edna May Consolidated. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
W'ESTONIA GOLDFIELD. Westonia., Nov. 20. Edna ?May Consolidated. I: is most improbable that any noteworthy development will occur in the Consolidated before Febru stry. The work in progress at the' mine now and for many weeksj ahead resolves itself into preparing the main 212 ft. shaft for future operations in connection with .the opening up of the ore body 120 ft. north-west of the main haulage way. The No. 5 shaft, virtually a 7 x 3 prospecting" shaft, is now down be low the 150 ft. This shaft will be connoeted by means of a southi-east level with the main shaft when it also reaches a depth of 212 ft., thus answering the purpose of providing :necessary ventilation an d at the sa·l.e time proving the intervening country. The sharp rise in share values dur ing . the present week was not due to any improvement in the mine's prospects, but merely a market move, due, it is reported, to the "hbears" having been caught short of "paid" scrip; a sympathetic rise in "Cons" ,was a natural co...

JOHN ALLEN'S INFLEXIBLE IMPERIAL PENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
JOHI ALLEN'S INFLEXIBLE IMPERIAL PENSION. "The Preat war presses heavily on the lonely pensioner. The old folk who have children or friends to help them, or who get 'something from, America,' are not so badly hit." says a writer in the "Cole raine Constitution" (Londonderry), and he tells the moving story of how John Allen lives a life of pov 'erty and contentment on his "im perial pension" of five shillings a week. '"Take the case of old John Allen, who has neither cow, goat, pig, cock, 'hen.. chick. nor child about him, and you will find that he is eon 'fronted with a problem that known no solution but the workhouse. HI ?has an inflexible imperial income of five shlllines a. week. but. alas for 'him. he has to suit his necessities to th2 limited purchasing power of a sum which even in. peace time afforded no margin for comfort.

THE COUNTRY PARTY Perth, Dec. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
THE COUNTRY PARTY K/ Perth Dec. 2. The inconsistency of the Country or Decentralisation party sup porting the Centralisation Govern ment has long been apparent. The prevailing impression is that the Centraliation party has swallowed the Country party, and the latter exists only in name. The inconsistency of the Country party's attitude and the utter abandonment of its decentralisation principles was admitted to-day by even the leader, Mr. Willmott, M.L.A. The inconsistency was so apparent that he made the following official state ment : "During the discussion and vot ing on the estiimates in the Legisla tive Assembly, the Country party were found apparently voting against the party's platform, and principles. It is only. fair to the public and our constituents -to ex plain why our votes were cast as they were. In the first place one half of this year's estimates haveI been spent, and any r.eduction for I the remaining portion of the present year would be nearly impossible, or of a v...

A GIRL'S COMPLEXION [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
A CIRL'S COMPLEXION Very few girls get through their teens without eruptious or pimples showing on their faces. These may -b due to indigestion resulting from improper diet. If so they will' quickly disappear when the p: per food is adhered to. If they are accompanied by pallor and - listlessness you must look to the condition of the blood Because these eruptions on the faces of. -hool girls are so common they seldom receive tlh.' attention from parents . that they require. When they indicate ihin blood or anaemia there is 'a ready remedy. in Dr. Williams' Pink I ill. These tonic pills, free from harmful drug., are pretty sure to help growing girls because they build up the blood at a time when the demaud on it is greatest.' As the blood is made rich and red fickle appetites become normal, lassitude gives way to vigour, the cheeks and lips show the glow of health and the whole system is toned up. The .nervous system is invigorated and with pro. per attention to diet many dangers are...

CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHI]L Perth. Dec. :. Figures representing the eon sauption oi alcoholi~ liquor for 1916 have been made available to the Commissioner of Health, by the Government Statistician. The Com missioner considers that the -sub ject is of interest at present, for. two reasons, (1) That at present, the relationship between the exoes sive consumption of alcohol and the contraction of venereal disease is being stressed in all countries, ' where the latter is receiving special attention and (2) because during teo present great national orisis when the presentation of physical fitness is of the utmost value, and may be ultimately the deciding fac tor in the war, all countries have turned their attention towards its restriction or prohibition "In regard to the second," add ed the Commissioner, "there can be no two opinions, for neither physical nor mental vigour is com patible with anything but the strict eat moderation in regard to the consumption of alcohol. It is, therefore, pl...
