No Title [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 12 April 1924

"Is it this one?" he asked, lifting a slender foot. "No," said Anne in a muffled tone, "I fancy it must be the other. But please take me down." And as he took her in his arms, to lift her down from the high stool, he was suddenly impressed by the absoluteness of a beauty which made that of all other women seem to him but an accidental prettiness. Anne, on her side, became suddenly sick and ashamed of the part she was playing. She had not known it would be quite like this, or that she would have felt the magnetic quality of the man. It seemed to her, indeed, at that moment, that it would be impoa sible for her ever to sink lower than she had done in thus appealing to those feelings of passion upon which she knew herselfAto have consciously reckoned. She drew away from him. "I wish I knew what had brought you here," she said a little unsteadily. He hesitated, then abruptly said "Sentiment." "And what is taking you away?" He flung out the same word again "Sentiment." "Don't you like th...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 12 April 1924

The Maribyrnong River Allegations of Renewed Pollution Reprinted from "Easendon Gazette," 10/4/24 A few weeks ago we referred to the fact that the Maribyrnong River had been purged of the foulness which for years had rendered it a byeword and reproach and a menace to health. The announcement that our Braybrook neighbours had at last been "brought to their senses," apparently by the passing of the Main Drains and Streams Bill, was received with much satisfaction, and a report of an inspection of the stream which appeared in our issue of December 20 last did much to direct attention to the transforma tion that had taken place, with the result that during the Christmas holidays the river became, as of yore, a rendezvous of pleasure seekers. It was stated that the change was so perceptible that even the fish were returning to the haunts that had been poisoned by the Braybrook fac tories. The improved condition of the river was maintained for some weeks, and at the Maribyrnong Hen ley, h...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 19 April 1924

FOOTBALL. By "Wing." In seasons prcviods we have not had such a valuable asset as our local paper, whereby the public in gencral and the various sporting bodies were not in a position to voice tihir opinions. Therefore,' much valu hble work performed by many citi eons towards the c!ub and other chari table appeals passed by:unnoticed, ex cepting to those most concerned. The services of last year's ladies' committce helped to bring to a close one of the most successful season,: ever experienced. Have we evar stopped to consider the various house hold duties performed at home before this committee attended their meet ings and socials? When we take all these things into consideration, and think of this voluntary, committge who turned up to the social evenings, wvorked u.ntil midnight, and carried out duties that could not have been per formed , satisfactorily by the male members of the club, it is only fair that the services of this committee should receive their share of publicity.

ORIGIN OF ENGLISH SURNAMES [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 19 April 1924

ORIGIN OF ENGLISH SURNAMES By Rcv. A. H. MITCHELL Among uncivilised people a very great importance attaches to the name. The workers of magic can play the very Dickens with you if they can get hold of something that has been intimately in touch with your person. As nothing is more intimately associated with a person than his name, the evil practitioner desires that above all things. Naturally, the primitive man keeps his real namlle a secret. Everybody can tell at a glance he is a "crow," or an "eagle," or a "witchetty grub," and members of his tribe may know which one of the family he is. But the black brother has a secret name, which is most jealously guarded. He himself does not learn it until he is of age-so important is it that the name shall be private. If the medicine-nman desires to injure an individual, or what is more likely, some other person de sires to harm him, scraps of his food, some parings of his finger or toe nails, or a hair of his body, or a fragment of a weapon...

NECESSARY FOR A BOXER Speed and Physique [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 19 April 1924

NECESSARY .FOR A BOXER Speed and Physique BY JIMMY MATCHEM The physical and mew.al quali fications that go to make up a suc cessful boxer differ from thilcse of any other class of athletes in the world. Ther9 are many strong points about a man who becomes a champion boxer, which are not generally noticed by the fickle fol lowers of the art of to-day. In the first place, the success ful 'boxer must have rugged physique, broad shoulders with big punching muscles in the upper part of the back, a good, thick neck that can stand a strain; fleavy, thick-set jaws, which de note bull-dog tenacity; 'a small, rather flat nose, not easily broken; small, sharp eyes, with the fight ing glint in them' -The arms, of' course, should ke long a muscular, yet not bound up like those of a lifter.of heavy weights; whilst the waist and legs should be small- in comparison with the dimensions of the upper part of the liody. "Great speed is ab.solutely neces sary in the make-up of the classy boxer.. I have:...

The ratepayers cry '" How tong, how long," but' the council 'heedeth not their cry. 3. "Rates, Rates," is a con tinual cry, but. the rate of the council is exceeding slow. 4. Among many counsellors is much wisdom, yet I said not " among many councillors." 5. The young man loitereth, the P.C. hurrieth on, and the Cotirt collecteth the fine. Too true ! 6. Better a quiet' tho' muddy walk than a wait at the station of a train that cometh not for half-an-hour. 7. Then shalt thoube free from the law's embrace, and thy ways shall be full of peace. 8. " Move on, " crieth the P.C., yet the council removeth not the mud from the streets. 9: "Final," crieth *the news kboy, and yet there cometh an "Extra Final," yea a " Late Final," and a " Last Race " to follow.

METROPOLITAN MUSINGS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 19 April 1924

METROPOLITAN MUSINGS Melbourne is being well catered for musically at present, there being a periodic but rare visitation of grand opera at present in full blast. The infrequency of genuine opera per formances in Australia is one of the blots upon our national life, and is not likely to be removed until the' task of providing such musical fare is taken out of the hands ofi theatrical speculators, or, at any rate, removed frrom the atmosphere of commercial ism. A State endowed theatre, where grand opera and classic drama are nutured; and encouraged, is the dream of many enthusiasts, but so far has received scant support from the quar ters wheri assistance is to be ex pected and could be readily given. There is naturally a large and grow ing demand for operatic and high class orchestral performances in our mnidst, and it is ardently hoped that the present auspicious occasion will be seized to place the musical art upon a firm foundation. After all, the performance of the works of the ...
