THE MIRROR of SPORT HORSE, FOOT, AND MARINE Only One in Khaki. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 11 August 1917

jy THE** Mii?i?op90poi?i ? HORSE, FOOT,' AND MARINE -By Our Correspond entu. Only One in Khaki. Benny Palmer jumped into khaki a while back with the Aviation Corps. The fact that he is qualifying for a flier did not help him any when he stood up against Llew Edwards at Sydney Stadium last Saturday night. Ed-* wards worked like a terrier, and did what he liked to all parts of Palmer's body— that is, above the belt line. Result, Benny was out of the business, as far as the winner's ehd of the money was concerned, in less than two rounds. Edwards was featherweight champion of England before he came to Australia, and developed into a lightweight. It would have' been unique if he, too, had been in khaki when he fought his opponent, as we have not seen two soldiers clash in the principal -fcvent at the Stadium up to date. Australian* Steeplechase. ? Australian Steeplechase, to be run over four tniles at Caulfield on Saturday, is the longest event of the kind in this part of the world. Onl...

THROUGH AUSTRALIAN WILDS VII.===On the Way to Commoweal (Specially written for the Mirror T»y FRANCIS B1RTLES.) Once again in the open we pointed our bow sprit for Cammoweal, across country which was -well in the. grip of the drought fiend, dry as the top side of a saddle, and criss-crossed with cracks like enormous mouths gaping for a drink.: These cracks are the wise provisions of Uature for the preservation of the grass seeds which, in- the heat of the surface, would be shrivelled- up to uselessness. They drift into the cracks and remain in the refrigerator of old Earth till the rains come, when they float to the surface and, spread out on the flood waters . to strike and germinate when these have sub sided. ?'.?.. » The sand. ridges are among the protective es tablishments^ of Nature in the barren country. When the ground is at its worst as a nursery for ybung grass, comes the southern monsoon - which sweeps - the plains and gathers every thing which is movable. The errass seeds...

PLAIN AUSTRALIAN PATRIOTISM AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 11 August 1917

PLAIN AUSTRALIAN , PATRIOTISM AT HOME. '.'he Mirror is not concerned with the merits of the dispute between the strikers and the Railway Cornmitmioners. The matter of general .j concern, the matter that must on no account be lost sight of, is that the world is at war, that Australia is pledged in honor to carry out her part in the world war, and that nothing must be permitted to interfere with military movements and operations in Australia if it can by any possibility be avoided. For that reason, all loyal citizens must stand behind the Government in its efforts to maintain . the public services at this time, whatever view they * may take as Unionists or opponents . of Unionism. ' ' There can be no absolute choking and stoppage of the railway system, for instance, because that would amount to a national calamity, with far-reaching results incalculably malign. The- right to strike may be this or it may.be that, but no sane man will for a moment pretend that strikers have any right to...

At the Movies Full of Knowledge. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 11 August 1917

At the Movies *-\ill of Knowledge. Curious to note how the picture-actress is making her mark on girldom. In Sydney they can be picked out now, the Frederick girl, the Bara girl, 'with here and there a timid attempt at a Pickford girl, and now and again a Marguerite Clark all smirking. The knowledge of picture-actresses possessed by the Sydney girl is weird, and, being taken from motion-picture publications, it 'is gene rally all wrong. According to the motion picture publications, Miss Pickford married an actor, and if there's one thing Mr. Owen Moore cannot be called, that's it. According , to the motion-picture publications, Miss Clark (s still . a dimpling tender maid in her teens, and — well, we know what we know. So that the Sydney girl is full of knowledge that is somehow all wrong, and her information has as much real relation of actual life at Los Angeles as the Book of Revelations has to actual life at Balmain.

ODD NOTES ON MEN AND MATTERS The Legion of Honor. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 11 August 1917

ODD NOTES ON MEN AND MATTERS By THE MAN ABOUT TOWN. The Legion of Honor. ' It has been freely whispered that there is a Legion of Honor Cross to be allotted to an Australian citizen who has been prominent in all kinds of work in the interests of the French people since the Commonwealth made her first response to their call, One of the privileges of the wearer of this decoration is that he can not, in any French jurisdiction be imprisoned, or even formally sentenced 'till he has been ex pelled from the Order. The form of expul sion is, however, a simple one. The judge of the court says: 'You have been found want ing in honor ; in the name of the Legion I solemnly expel you from its ranks.' After this the law takes its course. To the Rus sian Cross of St. Andrew .attaches the privilege of demanding, once, the life of a man sentenced, to death. The wearer of the Cross has the right to ask for, and is entitled to receive, a free pardon for any convicted criminal. . A Veteran M.L.C. ^ Th...
