People We Know The Bubble Reputation. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 8 January 1914

The Bubble Reputation. This is an age of publicity, when a inan can be swollen giant size in reputation if he only takes the proper m-'ans to have his deeds properly advertised. Frobishiir, Drake, Colum bus and 'all the others who carried the fl,ag of England to the edges of the world in the old days had to wait for posterity to give them their reward in reputation. It is not so now adays. The man who does a gre^t thing for his country or for anyone else either has only to let the press know about it, and the world will he ringing with his exploits next morn ing. Pegoud was famous all over the world within twenty-four hours of his great flying feat. Yet it is not easy to gain fame on the big scale. Just as the making oi reputations is easier, so the materials out of which they are made has to be of superior q[uality. That is, for the truly ambitious man, who wants the world for his audience. A city can be captured, a country set worshipping a hero without much difficulty ; but that ...

SYDNEY SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

SYDNEY SHOWS. ■Lewis Waller returned to Sydney last week, and on Saturday night at the Theatre Royal opened in "Miss Elizabeth's Prisoner," a pretty romantic play of the American War ol Inde pendence. Mr. Waller and Miss Madge lither adge are a pair of such delightful artists that their work always pleases. This particular play, however, was a very short one, and an unsat isfactory curtain-raiser had to be put on in front of it. That style of performance does not suit Australian audiences; though it is very w:ell for. London, where the fashionable section of the audience does not arrive till the curtain-raiser is through. The Waller return has not created any Igreat furore. Indeed, since Mr. Oscar Ascb.e left the VTbeatre Royal—and, indeed, before he left it—a spell seems to have been cast over the house, for nobody has managed to score the splendid success which n.-ativ of the productions seen there deserved. On Wednesday: night ''A Marriage of Convenience" was revived for three ni...

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. Young Premier as Simple Country Legislator has made good with rural electors. News comes from country districts of satisfaction with his rural policy, and of determination that he shall he given a chance to provide the misused farmer with bulk handling of wheat, decentralised indus tries, now railways, closer settlement, and those many other delightful political gifts. The pic ture of Willie Watt sucking a straw, telling Mr. Wheat Farmer exactly what, he needs, and dis playing to amazed audiences an astounding knowledge of all things rural—clever, precocious vouth !—lias delighted even the live stock. When !YTr. Watt really does visit tiie country, the cows will-approach," with a pleasant spirit of sympa thetic companionship, to rub their necks against his leg. But what is the cost of this stupen dous country programme ? Look not too far ahead. Undoubtedly the city is vexed as well as amused.

Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

Prattle Jibout People. 'Hawthorn MemTjer "Billy"' M-'Phersson is an old State School boy, and got his early edu cation at the West Melbourne school, known as "Parnell's," where many other prominent citi zens learnt their ABC. Major Parnell, the headmaster, was the lather of Victorian Com mandant Colonel "Billy" Parnell. The Major was a splendid type of disciplinarian, and he was held in high esteem by both his pupils and their parents, which "for a headmaster means a lot. Attorney-General Irvine arrived in the Victo rian political atmosphere apparently from no where, but soon assumed a prominent position, As a matter of fact, few knew where the stern, set-faced young man had sprung fiorn, and fewer still were aware of the circumstance that he commenced work on arrived in Melbourne as a labourer, handling cases, at the big Exhibi tion. They were really heavy cases, too, laden with merchandise, lie has been handling cases of quite a different character since. Chief Secretary Murray wa...

People We Know Found Out. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

Found Out. Some men who have great local reputations go into fPI&rlfiament, and, to their own sorrow ancl amazement, are speedily found out. In their own parishes they count as seers, are regarded as statesmen. The leagues and associations which nominate and elect them feel certain that their member is going to rivet the atten tion of all Australia—that his first season in Parliament will show him as the great refor mer to whom any party leader will he glad to voffer a portfolio. Such men make one speech in the House, and all is over. They are at once relegated to the large army of nincom poop politicians—the mass that votes as it is told, that talks as and when it is told, that neither understands nor appreciates the game of politics, that never even realises that it is a game. There is another class of poli tician who finds Parliament out. lie is usually a shrewd business man, accustomed to go rapidly to the heart of things. He enters Par liament with a great respect for t...

"Police?" [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

" Police ? \0 We ought to sympathise with the police. The luck has been against fchem of late, and the police with the luck against them are the most hapless body in the world, for the reason that they trust to luck for their most striking suc cesses. Public opinion here has bpen develop ing fori several years past in a direction adverse to our splendid Police Force, and the best friends the police have—the police officers—find it absolutely impossible to giv»? good and suf ficient reason why the vulgar idea should swing in an opposite direction. Ilie late Chief Com missioner O'Callaghan, returning from a trip abroad, says he has seen nothing in old coun tries or new to convince him that our Vic torian constabulary is inferior to any on earth. This may be quite true. Mr. O'Callaghan went abroad with the intention of substantiating opinions long cherished by him, and a man in that mood is not a good subject for the receipt of instruction. He saw noshing better than the Victorian Poli...

Photo Focus. DRYING PRINTS: AVOIDING CURLING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

Photo Tocus. By "Lens." DRYING PRINTS : AVOIDING CURLING. On taking the prints out of the washing water, they are pinned up, or may be thrown across a string, 10 drain. Some samples of gaslight paper, I believe, must be dried with the face of the prints out of contact with anything, or they will adhere to whatever touches them, and be spoiled. With most brands, however, after draining, the prints may be laid face downwards to dry on clean cloths —smooth towels do very well—without any fear of sticking. It is better to let them • dry in this way rather tnun pinned up, as they are then left with much less tendency to curl.

SQUEEGEEING: TO PREVENT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

SQUEEGEEING : TO PREVENT STICKING. Prints on glossy gaslight paper may have their glcss increased by squeegeeing them to glass or ferrotype sheets : but the high glaze which is thus obtained, while showing up detail very perfectly, is not usually at all agreeabfe for pictorial work. Many photographers seem to have great trouble to glaze prints without them sticking to the glazing surface : but there is no reason for this if they are willing to take a little trouble to prevent it. Prints that are to be glazed should be taken from the last washing water and placed in a bath of —formalin, 1 part : water, 10 parts. After remain ing' in this for three or four minutes, they are drained and dried as just described. When quite dry. they are rewetted in clean, cold water, and when porrectly limp are squeegeed to ferrotypo sheets and allowed once more to dry. They will usually peel off of their own accord when dry : but if they clo not, the least tovch underneath one corner is .sufficient to ...

The Military Spirit. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

The Military Solrit. *— - v - r , The most interesting cablegrams for weeks past have been those dealing with Kaiser Wil liam's troubles in Alsace. Everything is pos sible in a democracy, and Germany provides proofs. For, although Prussia has an Emperor possessing great power, and nourishing his di vine right and a dirty left (the latter a mailed fist), Prussia is a democracy possessing the largest organised Socialistic force of any coun try in the world. A Socialistic force of the same comparative value in Australia would dominate the country. -Vst sido Iv side with this exists a great military class claiming powers scarcely inferior to those of the Prae torian Guard in the Rome ctf Did ins Julianus. We in Australia are very busy building up a military system of our own, one which in the course of years will have enormous extent. The Alsace incidents and their outcome pro"» ide very significant lessons for us. Wa are persuaded not to allow this formidable animal to emulate the came...

ARTIFICIAL DAYLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

ARTIFICIAL DAYLIGHT. Those who have to do colour matching by arti ficial light will be interested in the remarks of Mr. T. Thome Baker in the course of a conference of manufacturers held the other day at the National Gas Exhibition. Mr. Baker stated that, from tho point of \icw of colour matching, incandescent gas is not l'ar from being a perfect illumination, and that it can with little difficulty be so screened as to give an illumination comparable with daylight, and suitable lor the fairly accurate comparison of colours. The spectrum of the incandescent gas mantle is very even, only the blue-violet being de ficient. r.nct the apple-green prominent. The blue violet can be enhanced by means of a blue-violet dye in^i.he filter, and the green rays subdued partly by means of this dye, and partly by means of a (suitable red dye. One inettioil of obtaining artificial daylight suit able for vse on an extended scale, said Mr. Baker, was to have the lamp placed fairly high up, near the cei...

KEY-NOTES Swanston Street, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

I Swaflston Street, Sunday. people of a class persist fri the view that Swanston-street, Melbourne, on a Suiiday night presents a problem. If you look upon the pro menading thousands in this street after 8 pan', on the Day of Rest as so many people out of doors, whom it is your bounden duty to shut up indoors, then Swanston-street does present a problem, and you may solve it as best you can. To the ordinary man 01 the world, who is less concerned with the saving of souls here after than their happiness here and now, Swan ston-street at 9 p.m. _ on Sunday is a simple demonstration. It means that 'Lhe young peo ple have a few hours to spare, and that they want to spend them with their kind, meeting / each other, greeting each other, perhaps start ing the line of conduct that means eventually marrying each other; and Swanston-street, city, offers them the best rendezvous available. Swan ston-street is covered to protect them from wind and weather ;, it is well lighted to enable • them ...
