MUSICAL REMINISCENCES [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
MUSICAL REMINISCENCES (By E.A.M.) Having been associated with every Grand Opera Company under the" *t. C." Williamson management since 1901, it has been suggested that a few reminiscences in connection with my experiences may be of interest to readers. So many laughable incidents have occurred that to anyone with a sense of humour, the rehearsals are sometimes more humorous than the actual performances, and as good as any comic opera. Music is popularly supposed to bring peace, happiness and love for one an- other into life. This is the theoretical aspect, but in real life it sometimes seems to breed jealousy, bitterness and intrigue. In the amateur singing world these outbursts of temper and envy are treated. as a joke, but Grand Opera stars give these emotions the ouphonius title of temperament. Temperament is difficult to define, but when it appears, stag&lt; managers recognise it and flee from it. Tem peranient creates a paradox, the management is terrified, and audience...
BENEFIT CONCERT. A SPLENDID RESPONSE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
BENEFIT CONCERT. A SPLENDID RESPONSE. Thanks arc due to the Federal Minstrel and Concert Party, and to the residents of Can- berra, for their fine efforts at the benefit con- cert organised on behalf of Mrs. M. A. Ross, of the Causeway. The bill of fare provided by the Minstrels was greatly appreciated, and the financial result far exceeded expectations. The proceeds up to the time of writing are £32 ls 8d, which have been placed in the bank to the credit of Mrs. Ross. There are still a few accounts to be collected, possibly £3. As the trade unions had previously taken out a subscription list, the.amount banked to Mrs. Ross* credit was £108. This amount will be increased, as there are still some collection sheets to come in. Just following this, the Boy Scouts gave a concert on a 50-50 basis, which was well patronised. On the whole, it is something to be proud of, as Mrs. Ross will have received £150 in cash. The car- penters and -joiners also contributed towards the burial of the l...
THE LOVE OF MY LIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
THE LOVE OF MY LIPS. Thou art the love of my life, My darling since I was a boy, Thou'rt more to me than my wife, My soul's one solace and joy. How I feel your red heart beat As you rest twixt my fingertips; How silent and yet how sweet, Is the kiss of your burning lips. To thee, then, I sing this song, To thee, so mellow and ripe, For our bonds are sweet and strong, My soul 's best sweetheart-my pipe.

THE POULTRY YARD KEEPING BOARDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
THE POULTRY YARD (By "Channeler.") KEEPING BOARDERS. The evil of keeping "boarders" in the poultry yard is just as serious in proportion as keeping indifferent dairy cows. The eos* of breeding hens at present, even where the food is purchased wholesale, is around 2|d per bird per week, and to many small poultry farmers who purchase food in small lots the cost will be nearer 3d. This being the case it will be most unwise to keep "boarders," and no time should be lost in culling out the second-year hens J^iat have ceased to lay, o even the poor layers in their first year. These are generally the ones that go - into moul* early, and they can be recognised from now onward. The old idea that the hen which moults early will come on to lay early is quitr a fallacy. It is well known that it is the late moulter that is the best layer. But herr comes the crucial point. Many flocks are sc badly managed, either in feeding and hous ing, or both, that very little egg production is obtained from t...
RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
RAIN". Of pestilential heat and scorching flame, Of arid Nature mouth agape with thirst, Calling to Heaven in voice calamitous Por that celestial nectar called rain, The blessed balsam to assuage her pain Of fissures grooving wide and wider still As though to show the tortured soul within Was late our threnody! But now our song No longer holds a melancholy note, But soars in paeons irrepressible. For lo! the long-awaited hath arrived. The rain-drops in their never-ceasing hosts Bring smiles to eyes, and to enraptured ears Make gracious "jubilate,'' as they fall. Billy B.
TROOP LOG—THIRD CANBERRA TROOP. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
TROOP LOG-THIRD CANBERRA TROOP. (By Scoutmaster A. J. Paynting.) Since my last report we have not had much of note to report, except the concert and dance organised by our Troop Committee in aid of our Troop Funds, and for the benefit of Mrs. Boss. Although this concert took place on Feb- ruary 25, we have not yet been able to finalise the business, owing to the fact that one or two traders have not yet submitted their ac- counts . As a social event, the evening was a huge success, the large audience evidently appreciat- ing the programme which had been so ably prepared by Mr. A. Brown, to whom, with all the artistes who helped to entertain, the Troop tenders its hearty thanks. One more item re the concert is that, on this occasion, the president of the Troop Com- mittee (Mr. A. Crockford) presented to the Troop its first flag, the Union Jack, which is the gift of the Committee, together with the handsomely-mounted flagstaff donated by our vice-president, Mr. J. McBae Dunn. As far a...
CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS VISIT TO SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
CANBERRA BOY SCOUTS VISIT TO SYDNEY. Prior to the Easter holidays, Senior-Scout- master Guthrie journeyed to Sydney for the purpose of making preliminary enquiries and arrangements for the visit of a party of Can- berra Scouts to Sydney at Easter time. It was originally intended that our local lads should return the visit of the Burnside boys at Parramatta, but as a result of Mr Guthrie's investigations, it was decided that Parramatta was too far out from the city Further negotiations were made, and arrange- ments were completed with Scoutmaster Wil- liams, ef the 1st Dulwich Troop of Boy Scouts, which Troop kindly invited the Can berra Scouts to visit them. At the time of going to press our lads are having a great time with the Dulwich Scouts who provided beds and mattresses, and have placea their accommodation room at the dis- posal of the visitors. A visit to the Zoo, and a free harbour trip have been included in the entertainment of the Canberra Scouts, and not only have our lad...
THE RIFLE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE CANBERRA CLUB. MR. BUTTERS GETS A "BULL." [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
THE RIFLE OFFÍCTAL OPENING OF THE CANBERRA CLUB. MR. BUTTERS GETS A "BULL." Since the publishing of the last issue shoot- ing has been going apace with the Canberra Rifle Club. Every Saturday has seen a good muster of shooters, and enthusiasm is growing almost as fast as the membership, which is now close on sixty. The Club issue of rifles has arrived from Sydney, and every assistance is being given in building up the new Club. The Chairman of the Commission (Mr. But- ters) officially opened the Club at the Dun- troon Range on Saturday, 27th March. In welcoming Mr. Butters, the captain of thc Club, Mr. D. J. Callaghan, asked the Com- missioner to officially open the Club by firing the first three shots from the 500 yards mound. Keen interest was evinced by members and visitors alike in the result of Mr. Butters' first shot, and hearty applause was evoked when a "bull" was signalled. Tn declaring the Club open, Mr. Butters expressed his pleasure at being able to accepi the invitation...
TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. EXCELLENT ESSAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL. EXCELLENT ESSAYS. Two essays written by pupils at the school have recently come to hand from the headmaster. The work of these scholars, E. Waterman and Ednor Ardish, third and second-year pupils respectively, speaks well for the high standard of English attained at the school. It is regretted that space does not allow for publication of both essays, but we have pleasure in reproducing the essay on " Fashions, ' ' by E. Waterman, which is con- sidered by the * inspector to be the best ever handed to him by a school boy. "FASHIONS." (By E. Waterman. Age, 14 years.) Let us, for a few moments, review the fashions of the so-called "good old days." Frequently one hears an elderly person of the past generation bemoaning the immodest apparel of a modern flapper, and sighing for the sensible dress of the days when she was a girl. But what were these "sensible" fashions of twenty and thirty years ago? The women were burdened with great unwieldly-hooped skirts. Because Da...

CANBERRA COMMUNITY PLAYERS PRODUCTION OF "THE MAN FROM TORONTO." [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 12 April 1926
CANBERRA COMMUNITY PLAYERS PRODUCTION OF "THE MAN FROM TORONTO." "Who can undaunted bear the critic's rage?" After more than twenty years' close asso- ciation with the stage, Pate has pushed me into recess at Canberra. So came my oppor- tunity to be present at the historic perform- ance of "The Man from Toronto" on Satur- day, March 27-historic and highly praise- worthy on the part of those who formed the "Community Players" and produced the ini- tial performance. The Community Players will not thrive on fulsome flattery, or weak-worded and mis- placed praise. A spindlcy, pallid hot-house herb will result, whereas the bracing blasts of cold criticism will induce some of the hardi- hood of the oaken blanch-"a consummation devoutly to be wished." The play, an excellent comedy, was well chosen, and the stage setting and all arrange- ments very creditable, barring the want of a couple of window frame sash weights or junks of angle iron to ensure rapid and effec- tive closing of the fron...
