ODD NOTES ON MEN AND MATTERS Keeping Their Memory Green. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 4 August 1917
ODD NOTES ON MEN AND MATTERS By THE MAN ABOUT TOWN. Keeping Their Memory Green. There is much discussion over a proposal that the stations nlong the East- West railway should bear the names of the Prime Ministers of Aus tralia. The Rev. Mr. Mathewn, a minister of Melbourne, and a big authority on native names, considers that the niggers who roamed over the trackless waste before the first of our Prime Ministers was born should be entrusted with the naming. That is to say, that the names given by the dusky nomads should bo attached to the stations. This has the advan tage that it would save several bottles of wine. As to the other proposal, it is, to say the least of it, imperfect. According to Circumstances. A mere name painted on a signboard would not serve to keep Guch great names as theso green. An atmosphere is required. At Deakin, for instance, porters would be re quired to call out : 'This is Deakin, and tho train will stand for such period as the time table sets out, during w...

In a number of the hunting scenes of this play seve ral hundred of the choicest thoroughbreds of a New Y«rk hunt club are unleashed so that they may add to the excitement of the chase.
