Film Fakes. FOUR-FOOT VOLCANOS. BRINGING IN THE BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

Film Fakes   - : 0 : -       FOUR FOOT VOLCANOS                                           BRINGING IN THE BRIDGE   When you watch pictures on the screen, you seldom realise the number of little tricks and dodges to which the pro- ducers resort to obtain their effects. Roughly there are two main reasons why the art of faking is used on the screen -         to save money, and to obtain effects that would be impossible in straightforward       photography.               &...

Why Have a Brisbane Man? [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

Why Have a Brisbane Man ? Thus the "Evening News" comment upon the proposal that Mr. Elphinstone should be requested to contest Rockhampton   State electorate by-election :—But what a farce it would be to put up Mr: Elphin-   stone ? Mr. Elphinstone may be all that his friends claim for him. This paper has no wish to say anything that might be regard- ed as personal. But he does not belong   to Rockhampton. He is a Brisbane man and it is a poor compliment to Rockhamp- ton to have it said that we have to go to   Brisbane or elsewhere for a man to repre-       sent us in the State Parliament. If Rock-           hampton cannot supply its own parliamen-   tary candidates, then it had better get off   the map.             &n...

Newsy Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

Newsy Notes.         From time to time we hear comparisons   made between the wo- City v Country men of the city and dis- Women cussion on this point     has taken place even at       the tables of local authorities. At the last meeting of the Bungil Shire Council the chairman (Councillor W. H. Thrupp) brought under the notice of his colleagues statements made by His Excellency Sir Matthew Nathan at a meeting which had for its object the closer association of city and country women, in which Sir Matthew is reported as having said that by cor- respondence the women of the country could, among other things, learn how to cook. Cr. Thrupp stated that the country   woman could teach city sisters a few points on this subject. (Cr. Murray : But   not on dress.) Cr. Thrupp : Well, no, I have heard of a woman in the city buying a new dres...

SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

SPORTING.         For a considerable time bookmakers in   Brisbane have been dissatisfied with the licensing charges at Albion Park. Although   representations have been made regarding     these no acknowledgement was given the bookmakers that representation had been received. Bookmakers have decided on     "direct action" and only a limited number of bookmakers will field at Albion Park   whilst their claim continues to be ignored.     Another stroke of bad luck has been experienced by the well-known sports-   man, Mr. M. Ryan. He was advised a few days ago that his promising filly Widden Sands had been kicked in a paddock at   Warwick, where she was spelling. Her       leg was broken, and she had to be destroy- ed. Widden Sands was by Sands of the &am...

Smugler's Magic. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

Smugler's Magic, SEEING IS BELIEVING - SOMETIMES. One bf the bewildering tricks played by the famous jugglers of India is that of mak- ing a boy disappear before the eyes of the     spectators. One moment he is in plain view, dancing around with his bright red or green garments fluttering wildly: the next instante he fades away, and though there is absoultely no place in which he could hide, nobody can see him anywhere. This trick (says the "Pall Mall Budget") has been borrowed by the jugglers from         an Indian butterfly. The butterfly has such gorgeous blue and red wings that it is al- most dazzling, and when it flits through       the jungle even the dullest and most care- less eye is attracted instantly by it. Yet the moment it settles on a twig it disap- pears utterly, and those who are not aware of its secret may search as they will - they cannot find it. Th...
