FAIRY TALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
FAIRY TALES. By Will H. Ogilvie. I chanced on an old brown book to-day, All stained and yellow with dust and age, But the heats of a boy's heart, stilled for aye,' , ?Are heard at the turnjug. of every page. And I'd give the worth of the booto I've read, i . The books of the world with their wondrous lore* Just to go hack to the days long dead, t With a. heart for a fairy tale once more. The prize selection last week was from Victor J. Daley's Shepherds and the Sheep, one of the poems of the dead bard considered worthy of a place in the collection by Stevens and Mack* auess. The first letter covering the name of the author was from T. V. Coghlan, Belmont, Douglas-street, Stanmore, to whom the prize of 2/6 has been sent. Correct: answers as to the authorship of the gem in 'last issue, were received from: Olga Silverstone, The Willows, Merrylands ; Miss Sherlock, Epping ; Nellie Seale, Croydon ; A. W. Young, Enmore. Who will be first — for 2/6 — to send in tho name of the writer of th...
BILLJIMS TROUBLES A MISSING BROTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
SjRouRtn A MISSING BROTHER. Thirteenth writes: — My brother and I en listed at the same time, but I got away before he did. I did not come across him out there, and could not find anything out about him. I was wounded and returned, but I cannot get any information as to where he is, or whether he is all right I don't think he has been wounded, or I would have heard. How can I find out? Call at the Red Cross Information Bureau, 115 Pitt-street, City. SOMETHING WRONG. Gunner writes from an English hospital, asking if we have done anything in the matter of securing the separation allowance for his wife. He wro'te jn this connection three months ago. The matter was attended to, and the department informed us that his wife was in regular receipt of the allowance. She was written, to, at the address he gave — her home address — but she did not acknowledge receipt of the letter. Further enquiries elicit the fact that she is getting the separation allowance, at that address. She has been ge...
WRITE TO THE MIRROR ABOUT IT ENEMY SHARES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
,writl-the: MI!?r?OF? ABOUT IP Ana, eWi-% . JtKT: ENEMY SHARES. Incredulous: Is it a fact that, ever since the war started, the Federal Government has been holding — or the Controller of Customs as trustee has been holding— a number of shares in the best of the profit-making ventures of the Commonwealth in the interests of Ger mans, and that the profit on these shares is being held for the German owners of the stock? If so, why has nothing more been said than that some of the shares are to be sold? JACKSON, V.C. Admirer: I see Jackson, V.C, has been made a life member of Tattersall's Club, and was given a seat at the right of the Lord Mayor at the Council meeting on Monday. This is all right, as far as it goes. But Jackson will have to live up to these promotions. Has it been proposed to burnish him with a billet in which he will be assured an income which wilt enable him to bear his Cross — and the social distinc tions which have attached — with comfort ? I thuik the State should p...

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. Gross ignorance produces a dogmatic spirit. He who knows ' nothing thinks he can teach others what he himself has just been learning. The action of the soul is oftener in that which Is felt and left unsaid, than in that which is said in any conversation.

PLAIN AUSTRALIAN HATING GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
PLAIN AUSTRALIAN A, HATING GERMANS. People don't seem to grasp the real idea about hating Germans. We needn't hate Germans as men and women more than we are inclined; but unless we hate Germans as Germans we can't be said seriously to make war. The' Aus tralian Governments have made their worst mistakes in this kind because they have doddered ' obstinately along saying that Mr. Hogstein or Mr. Pickeltaube are very nice, respectable people who have been in this Commonwealth 82 years. What of it ? We have nothing to do with the nice behaviour of Germans. It is our part, rather, to put them in some very secure place where they can go on behaving as nicely as ever they want to. i In dealing with an enemy so wily, so agile, so unscrupulous,- an enemy- who is such a slimy diplomat and such an incorrigible liar, sentimentafism is a snare of the devil The first essential of national tactics In war is to diminish all risks to the irreducible minimum. We know that Germans who Save been truste...
THEY SAY [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 21 July 1917
THEY SAY That the Federal Government is anything but the happy family in which -none of the re lations are strained. That the calling up of the money owing by the State to the Commonwealth suggests states manship with a Shylock taint. That the discharge of returned soldiers from positions in which they are doing good work is uncalled for. That there is no truth in the statement that the Federal Government has refused an offer of £5,000,000 for the Northern Territory. That the police are in possession of evidences ' of renewed I.W.W. activity in Sydney. That the Repatriation scheme of the Federal Government is to be given active life imme diately. That if the Unions permit the work to proceed, Australia may launch a ship locally built before the war is over.' That the system of good and bad conduct marks among the boys in the mechanical services of the State will have a good effect. That if next wheat harvest is not handled in bulk there will be an enormous grain and money loss. That...
