y « i ^shly Picked Tea has such Enticing Flavor Young, tender leaves, picked fresh and cured slowly and gradually to imprison their juicy sap. That's what gives Bushells Blue Label Tea such rich, enticing flavor. Ordinary tea, with its life's essence scorched out by hasty, careless curing, is bound to taste weak and wishy-washy. The old coarse leaves must develop a harsh taste in the tea-pot. You really pay no more when you use Bushells Blue Label because the young, tender leaves and the slow, careful curing yield you more rich cups to the pound. You save money by using Bushells Blue Label Tea. It is so pure and rich that a pound yields you more than 200 cups. OLET RETAINS LEADERSHIP -WITH NEW VALUES . . .

EDMUND BURKE AND THE SEPARATION OF IRELAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER-MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

EDMUND BURKE AND THE SEPARATION OF IRELAND. ? Sir, and Greeting! In emulation of the forecast of the policy of your newly-compounded morning paper, I submit the following words from that famous Irishman, Edmund , Burke : "Men must have a certain fund of I natural moderation to qualify them for freedom, else it becomes noxious to themselves and a perfect nuisance to everybody else." . . . "I think Great Britain would be ruined by the separation of Ireland; but, as there are degrees even in ruin, it would fall the most heavily on Ire- land. By such a separation Ireland would be the most completely undone country in the world, the most wretch- ed, the most distracted, and, in the end, the most desolate part of the habitable globe. Little do many people in Ireland consider how much of its prosperity has been owing, and still depends upon, its intimate connection with this kingdom." The first quotation refers to the French people at the time of the Revo- lution; it might well be posted u...

SEIZES CAR ARMED BANDIT. CAPTURE AFTER SHOTS SYDNEY, August 27. An armed hold-up, followed by a chase by police afler a motorist, who was caught only after shots had been fired through his car, has caused some excitement in the Molong district.   Mr. R. J.

UNFAIR VIEWPOINT. Brisbane Architecture. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

UNFAIR VIEWPOINT. Brisbane Architecture. The president of the Royal Austra- lian Institute of Architects (Mr. Lange L. Powell, P.R.I.B.A.) said that he could not agree with the president of the Na- tional council of Women (Mrs. Cum brae-Stewart) in her statement that Brisbane was not proceeding on the same lines architecturally- as other cities of the world. Mrs. Cumbrae-Stewart's strictures regarding the stereotyped patterns of doors and windows were un- deserved, he said. The orthodox treatment of architectural design did not indicate in any way a paucity of invention or a lack of idea, out was the product of centuries of culture. He agreed that Iron roofs, where seen, could with advantage be coloured with paint. At the same time, it was unreasonable to look at the city from the elevation of Mount Coot-tha and criticise the appearance of the uppermost portions of its buildings. After he had completed the Masonic temple, Mr. Powell added, a friend complained to him that the iron ro...

Fashions in Speech -Views of Leading Teachers "Tho I bought thikth yardth of crepe de thene" . . . "Two thpadethand parth the ath-tray, pleathe." ...... "You thimply mutht thee Thylvia Thidney.". Whence comes this quaint fashion of lisping speech which may be heard in shops and cinemas and at bridge parties? It is, perhaps, a trifle less obvious than appears in print, but in a certain section of the feminine world It appears to be spreading rapidly. We are told that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Can it be that some of the listeners express in this wav their admiration for one or two radio announcers, whose manner of speech tends towards a lisp, and often becomes a distinct drawl?

HAPPY THOUGHT. Farewell Garlands. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

HAPPY THOUGHT. Farewell Garlands. When Mr. Oscar Seppelt (president of the Associated Chambers of Manu- factures of Australia) was in Brisbane recently he was charmed with Alder- man M. P. Campbell's idea of giving a garland of native flowers to visitors to Queensland when they were de- parting for the Southern Seas. Mr. Seppelt spoke of this among his friends in Melbourne, and when the Lord Mayor of Melbourne (Councillor Gengoult Smith) and. party left Mel- bourne by the Strathaird they wore farewell garlands. The Lord Mayor wore white heath and Miss Cynthia Brookes, his fiancee, and her friend. Miss E. Lawrance, wore garlands of mixed flowers of the brightest hues. Alderman Campbell's suggestion has met with favour, and much publicity is being given to it by the Chamber of Manufactures in Melbourne and by Mr. Seppelt.

The STORY TELLER A SEVEN YEARS' SENTENCE. CHAPTER XXII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

A SEVEN YEARS' SENTENCE. By T. C. BBIDGES. CHAPTER xxrx.--Continued. By this time the whole of Fay's room was a furnace, fanned by the draught from the open window. Rob- ins, who had kept his head, was at work with a chemical fire extin- guisher, but it was too late, and the draught was too strong for this to have much effect, Jerry saw that if something were not done quickly the whole of Stort End was doomed. He turned to Blake, who had followed him up. "Is there a tank in the top of the house?" he asked. I In point of fact he knew there was, but even in this urgency he had to be careful not to betray his know- ledge. "Yes," said Blake, "And a hose?" I "There be one in the yard." "Then get her quick. Meantime, I'm shutting that there window. Keep the extinguisher going, Mr. Robins, he added, as he turned and raced ¡ downstairs. ' The ladder was still in place.

Dorothy Dix Is Youth Right to Put off Marriage Until He Can Support Wife in Luxury? [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

CM r^ Is Youth Right to Put off Mar- riage Until He Can Support Wife in Luxury? DEAR Miss Dix.-I am engaged to aa splendid young man, but he   will not marry me, although I have been waiting for him for several years, because he does not think he is making enough to give me the things I should have. I am work- ing, too, and I feel that we can get along financially far better than a number of young married couples who seem to be happy. I would be willing to give up a great deal that I now have, for I con- sider that marriage means to share life together, its joys and sorrows, not Just its prosperity. Which of us do you think is right? MISS TWENTY-TWO. ANSWER: you are right. A certain amount of money, just enough to as- sure bread and cheese to go along with the kisses, is necessary to make marriage a success, but with that assured any young couple of lovers are justified in taking their courage in both hands and start- ing out on the great adventure to- gether. FOR happi...
