Be Suspicious of Tender GUMS [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
Be Suspicious of Tender GUMS Be suspicious of any tenderness or bleeding of the gums. This is usual ly the first slage or pyorrhea — an in sidious disease or the g-ums that des troys the teeth and undermines bodily health. Gradually the gums hecome spongy. They inflame, then shiii*, thus expos ing the uaenamelled tooth-base to the ravages of decay. Tiny openings in me gums form gateways for disease germs to enter the system. Medical science has traced many ills to these infecting germs in the gums weakened by Pyorrhea. They are now known to be a fre uent cause or indigestion, anaemia, rheumatism, and other serious condi tions. So watch carefully for that first ten derness or bleeding of the gums. Try Forhan's immediately. It positively prevents Pyohhrea (Riggs' Disease) if used in time and used consistently. And in preventing Pyorrhea — it guards against other ills. Forhan's (For the Gums) cleans teebt scientifically as well. Brush your tee:)i with it. It keeps them white, and clean...
Conscription Curse HUGHES' CRIMINAL WASTE OF WHEAT HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
Conscription corse HUGHES' CRIMINAL WASTE OF WHEAT HARVEST. (By 'Ml.') In the summer of 1916-17 Australia reaped the most magnificent wheat har vest ( with one exception) in her his tory- One hundred and fifty million bushels of the life-blood or the nation were gar nered and stacked at railway sidings inrougiiout tne commonwealth. In Europe the Allied nations, held in tlie grip of the submarine campaign, were cryiag aloud for food. 'Wheat, wheat, wheat,' was the cry. The eyes or their snort-rationed millions looked eagerly to Australia to refll their gran aries But Australian wheat was not to be allowed to enlist. William Morris Hughes had decided that his notoriety in England and tlie interests or the master class, to which he had bowed the knee, demanded that Australia should pass under the yoke of Conscription, and send her sons — - aye, and middle aged and old men — to the European cockpit at the atrocious rate of 26,000 per month. William Morris Hughes knew that, to do this, e...
Produce More [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
Produce Mare On Saturday, March 12, a general election was held. As a result the James Mitchell, at-pleasure-of-thejC-PXaucus, Gov ernment was re-elected One of its most emphatic slogans during the election campaign was the ''Produce More' cry. Produce more! That was the re medy for the deficit, for unemploy ment, tor me rabbit pest, the meas les, and Bolshevism. It was the very kingdom of Hea ven itself. As we say, the election was held, and the Mitchell 'at pleasure' Min istry was reelected One of its first acts, as reported in last Thursday's 'West Austra lian' (it hasn't done anything in particular in the meantime, except collect taxes) was to close the Wyndham meat works for the sea son. 'No work will be done,' says Mr. Colebatch .' 'Produce more' is the only way. Yet James Mitch and Co. decide to produce nothing. Are the public convinced 3-et of the shallowness of these great statesmen?
A Billydum Billydee Dream [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
A Billydum Biliytfee Dream (By «H.') I saw him alright: and it was next Tuesday. It was at Fremantle. A little undersized chap, with a drawn face, large mouth and ears. About four feet nine in height. He looked livery, very much so. Of course the Leeuwin isn't kind these days. Hughes it was— Billy Hughes. So he is off to London. Bays he repre sents Australia. Yes, I could recall the circumstances. They (his fellow politicians) all reckoned they are in a big mess, and as Billy had got them* into it, they decided Billy would' have to get them out of it somehow or other. Imperial Conference in June. Yes, I remember. Didn't Billy, throw an ink-pot at Winston Churchill and pull Lloyd George's hair. Didn't he threaten to cut the painter and re pudiate. Yes, it's all clear to me now. I remember Billy didn't say a word for days, and then let off. properly. I remember, too, that some resolutions were cabled from, Melbourne from the Labour Congress' that made Billy sit up and take no tice. Ot...
Census Scandal. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
censis KflMai. From time to time hints are ap pearing in the daily Press that give the impression that the 1921 Census has been far from a success. In Tas mania, for instance, it is believed that both Hobart and Launceston have been credited with some thou sand or so fewer citizens than they, really possess, and an attempt is be ing made to explain away the short age by pleading the holiday season. This is rather thin. Easter tuns brings country people to town in quite as great numbers as it takes city people out. The truth, it very much sefcSns, is that the whole affair has been mismanaged. We say that, if this is so, the sys tem is to blame. The idea of plac ing the collection of the Census sheets for boarding-houses in . the hands of inquisitive land-ladies, and thus placing boarders' private af fairs at the mercy of walking pub licity agencies, is nothing short of an invitation to people to evade the Census altogether. The notion could have originated only in the microcephalic s...

Colonel Pope, on Anzac Day, felt more nervy in his Essex buzz wag gon than he did years ago on the Peninsula. Dodging young ten year-old Australians 0:1 the road is a harder job than leading Aussies on to .1 scrap.

Unbalanced A Thumbnail Novel. We all of us have dual natures, though Mildred Ransom had never suspected it of herself before today. Since early morning she had been, in a state erf excitement as the bril liancy of her eyes and heightened colour becomingly testified). Mr. Court ville was coming at four, and it was now only three. She picked up a book; but her thoughts wan dered, and her imagination leaned forward to the coming tete-a-tete. Would he want to kiss her? Mil dred blushed hotly at the mere thought. He might try to seize her suddenly ... he iooked just like that. And last ni*rht he had 'looked' kisses, and his voice had caressed her, even if his lips hadn't. But then, last night — somehow it had see-ned all right then. Lena's gay futurist house lent itself to that sort of thing; and all those exotic iooking women and- queer Bohemian men took it as a matter of course. They had done it more or less open ly, though they certainly did try to choose the secluded places. And Mr. ...

Silk [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921
SUl There is a glamour in the word 'silk.' The princess in the fairy tale always has silken robes; the magis dress that you could draw through a finger-ring was of a silk fine beyond imagination. When po tentates of the East wish to salute their brother monarchs in the West, the ambassadors always bear pre sents of silks and spices. Caravans of merchants bring thtm with toil across the deserts for the harems of caliphs and sultans. Silk is not the favourite material of Romance for nothing. Its soft, shining surface, changing with the light, its graceful folds and faint rustle, its hne texture and lightness, make it the ideal fabric not only of princesses, but of all who possess the dainty taste which is a mark of the princess— at least in fairy-tales. New sihes are a joy and delight to women of laste. Nor do the ster ner sex altogether escape the attrac tion; at least one youth was observ ed to tear himself away with difficul ty, no .ioubt wishing that he had lived under Queen Eliza...
