CORRESPONDENCE. .? -.-?. _ - EVILS OF VACCINATION,. To the Editor of the "Standard." Sir, - Kindly allow me space to state a few solid facts, which will be - interesting to the open-minded sec tion of your readers, in connection with the above.

HARRY LAUDER SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 1 August 1914
HARRY LAUDER SEASON. The renowned Scotch comedian, 1 Harry Lauder, opened his concluding season of eight. nights at the King's Theatre on Thursday evening, when there was a large and appreciative attendance, with a gallery that was always ready to take up the familiar refrains of songs that he has been the means of familiarising throughout the English-speaking world, and which are never sung as he sings them. The residents of a certain suburb, by the way, have been con vulsed of late by the wit of some local wag. Everybody is familiar with the poster advertisement which depicts the famous Scot holding; forth on the virtues of a certain tea. "T like yoiur country, and I like you;r people, and I like certain b-rand of your tea, it's awfu guicd." he says. But the wag cleverly inserted in large letters the word "don't.' and covered the word "guid." The ad vertisement then read "and I don't I like your tea: it's awxfu'!"
