DRURY LANE ORANGE WOMEN RIGHT RECOGNISED [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

DRURY LANE ORANGE WOMEN RIGHT RECOGNISED I Mr M'Kenna, the Home Secretary, made himself the most popular man in Covent Garden on Tuesday by his prompt: action in-recognising the tradi tional right of the orange women of ' 'Drury Lane to ply their trade outside ] the Theatre Royal (says "Lloyd's I 'Weekly," January IS.) How the Merry Monarch chose a fav orite from the ranks of the Drury Lane i orange girls and Nell Gwynne became | the mother of a duke, has passed into history, but it is not so well recognised that ever since the seventeenth century generation after generation of orange girls have been allowed to stand out side the theatre, and thus an equitable right has grown up. When. it-, became . known that the police had dislodged the orange-women the Costermongers' Union took the mat ter up, and as a result Mr Kingsley Wood, L.C.C., introduced to the Home Secretary at the Home 'Office on Tues day a deputation including a dozen of the orange sellers, baskets and all. One of them...

WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OF ARBITRATION [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

1 . 1 WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OF ARBITRATION It is unusual to find a man within a little of his eightieth birthday whose life has been one of labor intent upon new plans by which he may be bur dened with duties to take the place of larger affairs that he is now hardly strong enough to carry (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January 14). That was the task a "Daily News" visitor found Mr Robert Applegarth, the veteran reformer, trade unionist, and educationist engaged upon yesterday. "Bob" Applegarth will never retire from the trade union movement. Dur ing the last clock strike- this little, j frail man was looking after the wounded He was asked by a famous leader to speak on Tower Hill on one occasion, and went there to do so. But I the memory of the stricken back streets J overwhelmed him, and he could not speak. Such is his sympathy.

COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT Professor M. Bonn, , of Munich Uni versity, read an interesting paper to the Royal. Colonial Institute last night on ''German Colonial Policy." Yisco.un. Mjlner presided (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 14), and in :tne course of a short speech compared the . relative positions of Germany and ISJiS f'larid in relation to Colonial policy, ana pointed out how their common interests might be advanced. Professor Bonn said that Germany ruled a Colonial Empire five times as big as the Fatherland, with about 14 million natives. She ruled them not always very wisely and not yet very effectively everywhere; hut she rulgd them without very great efforts. »he had, of course, wasted money occasion ally. She had had an extremely costly "war in South-West Africa on "which about £20,000,000 w£s spent. There had been native risings and extremely silly European settlement schemes, but everything taken together (war costs, loans, etc.) the total expenditure • for the last ...

WHITEHALL HOAX [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

WHITEHALL HOAX Betweon ;tho lio.urs of noon and three on January 7, Whitehall, and the neigh boring 'streets 'witnessed a rush for candles such as not been known within the memory of mortal man. Banks, shops, clubs, institutions great and small, cried, in the words of the dying Goethe, for: "Light, more light." And all in vain!. - < The cause of this unprecedented de mand (says "The Daily Mail") was a short, thick-set, clean-shaven man—a "respectable-looking man although wearing a brown overcoat," as one wit ness described him. : Such was his ex terior, but beneath the surface lurked the spirit of Theodore Hook, England's greatest practical joker. From noon till three this man made a,careful pilgrimage down Whitehall and round about. Gravely and blandly he explained at all his houses of call that' he re'i>VesChtcd tlie elective light ing Company,arid that the company re gretted to' inform- them that between the hours'of three and six the electric light supply would unf...

Grown-Up Children. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 April 1914

r *■ i < Grown-Up Children. A railway guard related an amuBing little incident the other day. "At an out-of-the-way little station in the North," he said, "a party of working men "wished to "book to a town in the Midlands. Unfortunately, the booking clerk had only a limited numiber of tickets for that journey at his disposal. "Eventually he got out of his diffi culty by dividing the pieces of paste board and issuing children's tickets to the party, at the same time explaining to me how matters stood. " "They've paid the full fare, of course,' he remarked, 'bo you must see 'em through.' "I had almost forgotten the matter, when a ticket-examiner at B came to .me and remarked, with a sorrowful shake of the head: '"This under-age dodge is getting too 'waiim!' " 'What's the matter?' I asked. " 'Matter?' he - echoed,- disgustedly. 'Why, here's a whole carriage full o' children wot plays cards, drittke wbiB ky, aud weare whiskers!'"

SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 April 1914

SPORT AND RELIGION. "I do not bet," he said, "firstly, be cause if I dad it would offend some members of my congregation; second ly, because I do not think that it is desirable; and, thirdly, because I think that it would be wrong for me, with my meagre stipend, to bet. I simply cannot afford it. I appeal to all 'sports' not to allow their sport to drive them away from religion. If they can race and bet with a clean conscience, I do not think that God will be offended. There is nothing wrong with clean sport any more than, with stock exchange ©peculations, and yet many people get up and denounce the evils of gambling and never say a word about gambling on the Stock Exchange. I am glad to be able to say that horse-racing is improving, and I believe that it will continue to improve. I have much in common with sporting men, and I am always pleased to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. - It will be a sorry day for God and for the church when the feeling that re ligio...

The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 April 1914

The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. "I'm no Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed Mrs. Knoyle, my landlady, apol ogetically. She had asked humbly if I could pay her only a little on account. "An' 'ere's a pipe; p'raps you might find a job in the adver-tise-meuts," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a brick," I said—and she'd been too kind to me to let me feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow—or I'll go. But I'll never forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings 1 owe you shall be a first charge on what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. (The gutter was very close. For six weeks I'd rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment— walking on in the crowd. The play had failed. In a week the notices were up. In a fortnight the company —all hut the lucky "stars"—were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. But I met Eva—Eva Bradley.

BOWLED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 April 1914

BOWLED OUT. About once a month this paper re ceives picture postcards and other photos from Westralians abroad, par ticularly from Egypt, showing the tra vellers on caniel-baclc in the vicinity of the Pyramids and Sphinx. , More than often we have been in clined to doubt the ibona-fides of some of those 'photos, as the senders were known to have gone straight on through the Suez Canal to Europe, not stopping at Egypt, as shown in the pictures. Then we remembered that in Port Said are studios where you can have tho photo of your head put on the bodies of tourists who have really been taken close to the mighty memorials of the ancient kings of Egypt. Last week, however, one arrived that completely gave itself away. In it a 'well-known Westralian and his wife were seen seated on donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. Close examination showed the back grpund of; desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to 'be faked in iby the double photo process, the picture of the tour ists and donkey...

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 April 1914

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. KTlie recent announcement in a con temporary that the Ulster men are trying to institute a demonstration, when every iman, woman and child •will wear a flower as a token of their aversion to Home Rule, reminds one how often flowers have been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist and Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose in the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a white, this flower has been a popular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are .symbolical of love and white of purity, our national emblem is the rose; the Legitimist Party of Prance formed the League of the Rose in imitation of our Primrose League, while owing to Gladstone's fondness for white roses many Liberals once wished to make them an emblem for their party, but the idea was not adopt-1 ed. 'The primrose, it is said, was Bea consfield's favorite flower, and has ibeen chosen <by his followers, who formed the Primrose League, as an emblem, while in Fr...

Naqua,the Bushman I By Perceval Gibbon in the • Pittsburgh "Sunday Magazine." The old yeliow-fanged dog baboon , that 'was chained to a post in the yard had a dangerous trick of throw ing stones. He would seize a piece of rock in two hands, stand erect, and whirl around on his heels, till momentum was obtained, and then let go. This missile would fly like a bullet, and woe -betide anyone who stood in its way. . The performance precluded any kind cf aim—the stone, was hurled off at any chance tangent—and it was rather bad luck than by any kind ot' malice that guid ed one of the 'boulders through the window, across the kitchen, and into . a portrait of Judas tie Beer, which hung on the wall not half a dozen feet from the slumbering Vrouw Gro belaar. She bounded from her chair and ballooned to the door with a silent, swift agility most surprising to see in a lady of her generous build, and not a sound did she utter. She was of good South African veldt-bred fight ing stock, which never ...
