THE SEXES IN THE SURF. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 29 January 1914
THE SEXES IN THE SUBP. A week or so ago we were moved by a profound sense of public duty to comment on the fact that scientists and clergymen seem to be impelled toward a certain silliness whenever they address themselves to the great and abiding woman's ques tion. ' The scientist adopts an attitude of elephantine playfulness, doubtless under the impression that he is descending to the level; of his audience.. The silliness of the clergyman is rather more objection able because it is more normal. Now we have a doctor who prances into the arena to denounces the practice of mixed bathing. Presumably no one has been noticing him for some time, and he feels that something must be done about it. He says that mixed bathing is becom in, the death-blow to matrimony. "I don't believe," says the doctor in question. "that one young man out of lifty wants to nmarry the girl he hars batlied with." Wrell, perhaps not. We can't marry every one. We don't even want to, although a too strict monogamy...
NOT ENOUGH FOR HER. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 29 January 1914
NOT ENOTUII FOR HER. lDring Bert Bailey's recent dramatic season in Kalgoorlie one of the juvenile members of the company, who was stay ing at a West-end hostelry, was very much infatuated with the popular buxom dis penser of throat teasers. The feeling was reciprocated, tho question of finance being the only impediment to maulaiimonial al liance. "Was lie financial, or was he not?" she wanted very much to know, before giving him an answer to the momentous question, so after thinking deeply for a minute, she said: "I'm afraid we shouldn't gt g on very well. You're too extravagant!" "Extravagant-" he repeated, "on the contrary, I'n very economical. I have to be," he added as an afterthought. "'Then I can never be your wife," re pliedl the buxom divinity with tears well iNg in her oeyes. "Because I'm economical?" he gasped, astonished at her logic. "No," she replied, "but because you have to be."-"Dryblower" Murphy in Kalgoor lie "Sun." a.ia

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 29 January 1914
Recently a steamer left Japan under the command of Captain S. Takeda, late of that country's navy, and one of the secretaries of tile Japanese Exploration Society. He has previously visited Europe America and Australia, and is accounted an officer of considerable experience and intelligence. It would appear that. as Japan only permits self-supporting immi grants to settle in Korea, and as there are many difficulties and. inconvenient local conditions awaiting those who do sire to make Manchuria their liome, it becomes necessary for the Japanese Gov ernment to seek some other outlet for, the country's surplus population. It is probable that the vessel under the com mand of Captain Takeda Will round Cape Horn in the winter of 1914-15, and cruise *along the coasts of the 'Argentine Repnub lieo and Brazil. IIn connection with this ."voyage of discovery," the above com mander has made some observations which have a particular interest for the peopeo of Australia. He says that he cannot u...

NOTES BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 29 January 1914
NOTES BYTHE WAY. By "Obeerver'." AlthoughI attempts are made to belittle the fact in certain quarters, police court records g to show that an undesirable class prevail to no small extent is con nection wvith tile batches of immigrants that arrire from time to time from the old. country. Indeed many of tllem--or at any rate a fair proportion-do not seem to have anything like the makinlg of industrious and sober colonists, as is the case with members of the Teutenic and Latin races that have made their homnes amongst us. In fact, in many cases, as regards moderation in thle use of alcohol, some of the immigrants com Ipare very unfa?\ourably. with the average Australian, and, moreover, in regard to many of the charges of assaults on the police, resisting arrest, etc., tile accused Ilas "come across the deep blue seal." It is stated--and, likely enough, there is a good deal of truth ill it-that since tile immigration policy of thle Government has been kiown is England philanthropic soci...

SCHOOL MATTERS ABERFELDIE HIGH SCHOOL. A meeting of the combined school com miittees was held recently to ,consider tile prOposal to proclaim the-school at Aborfeldie a High School. Tile question has already been fully piresented to the oublic tlhrough these columns, and the superior advantages offered by the'pro posed change clearly set forth.
