ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
ANSWERS TO CORRES PONDENTS. Received the herewith — no name, no address, no date, no stamp, no nuthin ! To the Heditor. Sir, — I wish to give an emphatic denial to your paragraph in dast week's issue about the insult offered my wife and myself at a certain Bunbury Hotel. The barmaid men tioned did speak to me in a joking manner about some private affairs, ,but the words you use did not come into the conversation. I think it is fair, sir, that you should apologise through the paper for your illcon ceived mistake ,and before I lay down my pen I want to say that there has been too much of this sort of thing going on both in your rag and in 'Truth.' You pick up runSDurs, circulated mostly by en emies of those concerned, and en large upon them, and then dish them up to the public as' facts. Several of my wife's friends read your dirty paragraph, and it has occasioned my wife considerable pain ' and worry. One of these days a writ will make you and your friends stop and think about your l...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
WESTERN AUSTRALIA.

THE CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
THE CIRCUS. Eroni's Circus has made a big hit in town, and an enormous crowd got underneath the tent flaps at last night's opening burst. And they all got their money's worth right from the first beat of \ the band to the final ensemble. There are no doubt some wonder ful acts in the show, which make it the finest of its kind ever seen in Perth. The tight wire act of the younger .croni, particularly nis badt and front somersaults, are beyond description, whilst Cestria with his juggling and tumbling on stilts, also brought down the house. The turn which however pleased last night's audence most was the marvellous jumping of both horse and dogs, the 40ft. jump of one of the greyhounds coming as a revela ton. The clowns are a strong point of the show, and are right up to the* best style of what real circus clowns should be. Perth should be grateful to Eroni's for a clean, healthy show. Sylvester at the Shaftesbury bad ly needs some new i^cks— most of those he now inflicts on his audi ...
Mimes, Mummers & Melody-Makers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
Mimes, Mumnrcrs&Melody-Makers Alan Wilkie, back in Australia, after 12 months' absence, is start ing in the Melbourne 'Princess' with 'The Rotters.' This play took the shaky and conscript isles by storm. The presence on the programme of the name John Lawson, was suf ficient to draw big crowds to the Melrose last week. Lawson has said 'good-bye' to his Perth ad mirers, who all regret his .departure. He has proved his sterling worth as an actor of high quality, and the members of his little group also es tablished themselves as favourites. Messrs. Bailey and Grant, 'who con trol the 'On Our Selection' com pany, which opened at His Majesty's Theatre last night to a crowded house, have rented the Lyric The atre, a favourite West End 'play house in London, and there will run a season of Australian comedy.' Mr. Bert Bailey, who has been in Lon don for over a year, has experienced considerable difficulty in obtaining a suitable theatre, as they were all booked for months ahead. 'On...

ON OUR SELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
? ? ? yjm ON OUR SELECTION. The production of 'On Our Selec tion' at His. Majesty's Theatre last night was an unqualified triumph, and Perth playgoers certainly had their fill at last of the right kind of dramatic fare. Steele Rudd's play is too well known to need any recapitulation of the story, for it is the epic storv of Australia and of the men and women who made it — going out to conquer the bush with an heroic optimism, and by their efforts laying the foun dation of a great nation. The whole company did it justice and made the familiar characters live. Edmund Duggan made a reputa tion for himself as Dad; he didn't play the part— he was Dad. Steele Rudd knew, when he said, 'When I look, at Edmund Duggan I can see old Dad at Shingle Hut, as well as I can see you. He's got the build, the make-up, the husky voice, and above all, the spirit that made old Dad the character he is.' Miss Florence Marshall, as Mum, showed herself a wonderful charac ter actress; and Miss Rosalind Dug ga...

THE INTERSTATE VISITORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
THE INTERSTATE VISITORS. The Sturt team from South Aus tralia, arrived by the Zealandia late on Wednesday evening, but although it was nearing midnight it did not prevent representatives of the. League and football enthusiasts giv ine them a welcome at the Port. The party consisted of about 30 members, and were under the man agement of Mr. W. B. Tank. The Sturts have secured the pre miership of the neighbouring State for the last two years. But misfor tune has fallen upon them this year, as several of their prominent play ers have been prevented, from play ing owing to accidnts, and they have just missed a place in the semi-finals. ? After some misguided blundering on the part of certain civic officials, wiser counsels preyailed,vand a civic reception was accorded to the visi tors in the Mayor's Parlour on Thursday last. In the absence of the Mayor, Coun. Franklin wel comed the team on behalf of the citi zens, and assured them that Western Australia regarded visitors from South Aust...
A MONOLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
A MONOLOGUE. Scene: A room in the Federal Par- liament House. Time, midnight. Bounder Bill (before a dying fire, in a digger's hat and great coat, posturing as a bold, bad Roman Caesar, soliloquises) : (The shade of Mannix rises up from the embers). They've muzzled him; yes, stopt his jaw, By the power of their war-time law; &nbsp; And he thought he was safe away From the wrath of my hand. Today He may look from over the sea, And guess at the strength of a thing like me — The hate and the wrath of a thing like me. He kept my nose to the em'ry stone When he was here, and he made me groan Under the whip of his tongue, but I Who know the worth of a well- trained lie, I have had my turn — and all is well, Though I feel as mean as the damned in hell — Deep steeped in the guilt and the slime of hell. &nbsp; Jerger it was? just a while ago — How well they, challenged me then, but, Ho! I've sent him sailing across the sea With a brand that hurts, a Hun is he; And Barker and ...
