VICTORIAN FOURSOMES TWO FINE COMBINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
VICTORIAN FOURSOMES i TWO FINE COMBINATIONS. MELBOUKXE, Saturday ? The I«26 Vic torian women's golf championship meeting was concluded on the Boyal Melbourne ' links to-day, when, in boisterous weather, more than 120 couples competed in the mixed foursomes. The skill in tbe game of ' two of the couples — Ales. Russell and Mrs. : Russell and Ivo Whitton and Miss O. Lascelles — was apparent from the fact that in each cafe the handicap was one. No other golfing married couple in Australia can - boast of having such a combined ban- , dicap as the Russells. These two fice com binations played well. Eeach had a net 79. : The llussellE took three putts on the last - green and Whitton hit the pin with his approach shot, and Miss Lascelles ssni a : putt for three. Under difficult conditions j their round represented a great mixed four. [ somes. The cards were: Mr. and Mrs. Russell: 3, 5, 4, 5, 4, 6, 5, 4, 3 — 39; -4, 5, 5, -i, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5 ? 11 — 80 (1) 79.

I personal! and 'Anecdotal [I || The visit of the Empire Parliamen tary Association to North Queensland i has brought tbe sugar industry well under notice.

IDLE ARGUMENT [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
IDLE ARGUMENT How the works of Mother Goose suffer from men's blind abuse! Did the cow jump o'er the moon? Did the cat abduct the spoon? Men of. learn ing say it's tosh; such wild statements will not waeli. Cows are earthly, sordid things, and they're never seen with wiugs; they can't emulate in flight Col. Byrd or Wilbnr Wright; even if they learned to fly they would never travel high; they would never fly away from the bran mash and the hay. Nature 's laws must be reversed ere a cow or steer can burst from the flights In air. But there is another crowd with an iron faith endowed; and they roast the four-eyed men who from study and from den send out ~ statements whicK traduce all the tales of Mother Goose, 'if she says a milk cow flew all the wastes of ether through, it's not ours to carp or kick, asking how it pulled the trick. Its not ours to reason why, asKing bow a cow could fly; we arc told the old cow flew, and for us that fact will do.' So they argue and- de bate, learned pr...
THE HOME BEAUTIFUL NAMING THE HOUSE LABELS TO BE AVOIDED [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
[?] NAMING THE HOUSE LABELS TO BE AVOIDED A writer in 'Homes .and Gardens'* chats pleasannly in defence of a ciaim that there is something in a name — as applied to a aouse. He says, among other thir^rs: — What can possess people to give the title of 'The Firs' to a nondescript house abutting: on the street, with no vestige of a fir tree — not even a derelict one — to be seen. Su«h incongruity leads to the ridiculous — a thing to avoid at all costs. Labelling houses with tree names is more a thing or vesteraay tnan of to-day. If you must thoosa a tree name, dron the prefix and use ''Beeches' or 'Chestnuts,' even ''Yews' is better than 'The Y.ws.' Structural names are often good. 'Stonegates.' 'Great Eaves,' 'White Walls,' 'The Bungalow,' have the merit that they are rightly descriptive. I wouM avoid 'The Cot' or 'The Inglenook.' but 'Lattices' would attract ine, and I regard ''The Pantiles' with favour. The use of foreign terms as house names needs much circumspection.

MOUNTAIN SPRING ? ^ ORCHARD BEAUTIES (By Constance CUttlns.) Days golden as only spilled snnshiue can make them, nights clear and chill, with a -frosty tang that ren ders the homely fireside a welcome place. This is Spring, where the rugged hillsides guard our ways.

CUPID ON WHEELS A FAST WORKER (By Frank field.) 'Well, old man, you'll be all right 1 now. But I advise you not to try I stopping any more motor cars unless you join the traffic section of the police force.' 'Thanks, doctor.

A«e u-on-grey monstacne or the doc tor curved in a friendly smile as he gripped the hand of his departing hos pital patient.
