Women's Column. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Women's Column. I>" Loudon it is computed there are 60,000 outcast women. From dusk to midnight there are thoroughfares where men are accosted every few yards ; when the restau rants and public-houses close at lialf-pasfc 12 the Piccadilly pavement is so thronged with women as to be almost impassable. This spectacle is Loudon's peculiar boast. Adelaide has a greater percentage of "unfortunates" even than London, and prostitution is openly carried on in our main thoroughfares and some licensed hotels. Let the women alter these things, seeing that men refuse to. A London chemist, who analysed a sample of "hair restorer" for ladies, sold at half a crown for a two-ounce bottle, found it to contain only common water, with traces of salt and sage extract. There is a large and powerful tribe exis tent in the mountains of India and Persia where women's rights are an accomplished and recognised fact. The single women of this tribe choose their own husbands in the following manner :—When a...

Pat's "Living" Wage. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Pat's "Living" Wage. Au Irish sprig, young Pat Molloy, His mother's pride, the ould man's joy, He left his home and crossed the sea, And straight to English soil oaine he. He got a job from Farmer Bull, Who soon discovered Pat no fool— His hair was dry, his wit was koen, And racy of the laud so green. Old Bull he had a tine fat pjg, And thought at Pat he'd have a dig ; "You've worked a week, Pat-; what do you say If piggy you take for youv pay ?"' " Begorra, Sor," says Pat at once, " I may be what you call a dunce. But, troth ! in this progressive age, Your offer, sure's, a ' living ' wage." l£!dridge's Bread is absolutely pure, which accounts for its spleudid keeping qualities.

Tattooed Princes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Tattooed Princes. Grand Duke Alexis of Russia, a brother of Alexander III., enjoys the distinction of being the most magnificently and elaborately tattooed prince ill Europe. His powerful right ami is adorned with a superb dragon, which covers it almost entirely from half way between the wrist and the elbow to the shoulder. It was done in Japan, at Nagasaki, where the (irand Duke spent some time serving as lieutenant on board the flagship of the Muscovite squadron in China waters. Alexis is by uo means the only member of a reigning family who is thus indelibly marked. Princess Waldeinar of Denmark, wife of the sailor son of King Christian, has a beautiful anchor and a crown tatooed oil her arm halfway between her shoulder and her slbow, and which, of course, is con spicuous when she wears a low dress. Her husband likewise has naval emblems tattooed on his arm, and so, too, has King Oscar of Sweden, who served for many years in the navy before ascending to the throne. His sons have f...

Light in the Factory Room. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Light in the Faetory Room. The din and clatter of iron and steel I hear in the factory room, For tlie pulse of steam and the driving wheel Are at work on shuttle and loom ; But strange it seems the God-sent power, No pains of labor allay, For it gives no ease to the toiler's hour, Nor increases his mite of pay. For a saviour surely it was sent To the toiler's aching limb, Tho' the rich man says that it was meant As a favour alone to him ; And the din and clatter of iron and steel Is heard from each great machine, And it makes the fight for every meal In the laborer's home more keen. But I hear a sound above the roar Of the bands and pullies and wheels, Like the murmuring noise 011 a far-off shore On which the flood-tide steals ; And it bodes no good to those who've spoiled And plundered the peopled right, The voice it is of the hosts who've toiled Out of the long dark night. The star of hope has risen with power, And shines o'er the people's land, And every moment, every hour, The t...

How the Church Wags. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

How the Church Wags. Says the Tasmauian Democrat:—Through out the world men's eyes are opening wider to the enormity of the evils against which j He raised His voice, the heartless oppressions | He denounced, and the beauty of the bi oad gospel of humanity He preached. The murmuring of a great storm is in the air. As with the sound of many waters, it is filling the ears of men. The nations are restless, and the clamouring of the peoples will not be stilled. The religion of humanity is being preached in every land, aud above the turmoil of contending interests is rising : the voice of a stern purpose determined to j make itself heard. A purpose to be achieved, j let us hope, not by envy, hatred, or tin- j charitableness, but through sympathy, go- : operation, and mutual forbearance. j The classes who so devoutly observe the ! outward forms of Christian worship, the ; bishops and clergy who go about the work | of their humble Master in carriages and i well-fed ease, should never forge...

VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I have yea4 two, letters in your paper signed " Reform" ami " Lex" on compulsory vaccination, and, Sir, if what they write is true, it is time we, as mothers, looked iuto this matter. " Keform" states that two of Adelaide's prominent public men have lost children this past year through vaccination. If that he true then my child may be the next to be sacrificed, and that means a great deal more to me than I can tell you. Listen, all mothers ; when you next take your little one to the doctor to be vaccinated, a poison may be injected into its blood that will result in its death. Then we have always been taught that vaccination was a preventive of smallpox. " Lex" states that this is false Sir, 1 want to know the truth upon these two points. If I have my child vaccinated do I run the risk of it being inoculated with disease, which may terminate in death, and after all the risk is my child as open to the smallpox contagion as ever'! Hoping " Reform" will ...

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

I was away at the other sattleineut, but was told they received a royal welcome to their new home. Mr. Geo. Birks takes my position here, and attends to the wants of the sick. There is, however, very little sickness, though this is the worst month for fever, but in a large crowd of people there's generally some little ailment or other. There is quite a respectable little dispensary here now, and it just suits him—that is, the duties attached to the work. They are indeed a fine family, and will, I am sure, be appreciated by the people of our colonies. Sibbald and his wife and family are all well and very pleased that the Birks's decided to come here. Sibbald is a grand man, and splendid company. His house is generally...

Bits o' Fun. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Bits o* Fun. Mr. Van Pelt I don't see how you can afford to sell that suit so much below cost as you say ?" Uncle Goldstein—" Don't dell anypody ; but cliust now I vas dryin' to cut down brofits all I gan, so as to skaveeze out of dev income tax." A man never realizes the superiority of woman so much as when he is sewing on a button without a thimble, pushing the needle against the wall to get it lialf-way through, and pulling it through the other half by hanging on to it with his teeth. Broadly speaking, this world of ours may be divided into two classes, persons who have trouble with their servants, and persons who can't afford to have any servants to have trouble with. Mbs. Shaw, the whistler, says that one of the best cures for indigestion is whistling for'about half an hour after eating. We have known all along that the man who has to whistle for his dinner is fairly safe, so far as indigestion is concerned. "Yes," boasted an Englishmau in the West, " I have Tudor blood in my v...

Jeremiah's Recipe for Bad Times. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Jeremiah's Recipe for Bad Times. What's the matter ? What's the world coming to ? The questions are being asked everyday. Mostly the trouble is as it was in the days of Jeremiah. There are too many of us 11011 -self-supporting; too many of us living socially useless lives, parasites upon those who are living socially useful lives. We must return to a simpler life. That was Jeremiah's recipe; that is the only recipe for to-day:—"And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered ye deEled my land, aud made my heritage an abomination. . . . Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have witlilioldeu good things from you. For among my people are found wicked men; they lay wait, as he that setteth snares ; they set a trap, they catch men. . . . Therefore they are become great, and waxeu rich. They are waxen fat, they shine ; yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked ; they judge not tlie cause, the cause...

OUR DEBT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

OUR DEBT. TO THE EDITOR. There is an old adage respecting the evils in the hurry to grow rich, which is equally applicable to colonies in their effort to be prosperous. I have pointed out in another organ how in 1876 Sir Henry Ayers per sonally advocated the sweating system, and how his Government backed up his advocacy by a vigorous system of free emigration, helped on by borrowed capital, a policy also initiated and carried out in its entirety by the other colonies in the Australian group until we have borrowed £340,000,000, and have repaid in interest no less a sum than £205,000,000, and have a population of some three-quarter millions, the majority of whom have to face the coming winter with what ? Alas, we know too well. And where has the bulk of this borrowed capital gone? In centralisation—in the beautifying of our chief cities; in elaborate public buildings, and civil and legal appointments ; in costly railways in their vicinity; in costly fortifications and naval and milita...

SELFISHNESS V. REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

SELFISHNESS V. REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—You hit the mark fairly w ell when you state in your " News Condensed" of to-day that " what the world wants to-day is a little more humanity, and Jess selfish ness," for I opine that the latter is the ruling motive of society as at present constituted. Our aim should be to endeavour to eradicate selfishuess, the primary cause of which is the dread of poverty, and the desire to place ourselves and those belonging to us at as great a distance as possible from exposure to it. That distance is ungaugeable, and struggle to be still enlarging it is perpetually going on, during which even family ties are ignored in many cases. Those who honestly wish to act unselfishly and right most often are made use of unscrupulously to advance the position of others, who actually despise qualities that ought to demand esteem. They say " poverty is no crime," but is it not looked upon as a disgrace "I I remember the time when I was taught that a patched coat wi...

People's Column. SMALLPOX AND VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—lie the above I beg to state that the following itsm recently appeared in a London newspaper. Perhaps it may tend to pour light upon the much-vexed question: —Mr. E. C. Greenwood, public vaccinator of Marylebone, has made a report on the effects of vaccination in connection with the recent outbreak of smallpox. He draws the following conclusions :—1. That the protec tive influence of primary vaccination up to five years of age is perfect. 2. That the modifying effect of vaccination upon small pox is greatly influenced by the number of vaccination marks. 3. That every one should be revaccinated at the age of ten years. 4. That vaccination in less thau four places should not be allowed. 5. That in time of epidemics temporary stations should be opened and house-to-house visita tions made, so that every one may be vacci nated immediately a case occurs in their house. 6. That in time of epidemics there would be no occasion to ...

Political Side Lights. [Bv Diogenes,] No. 1.—ADULT SUFFRAGE. The passing of the Adult Suffrage Bill by the South Australian Parliament is one of the most notable events in Australian his tory. Certainly no reform of equal import ance has ever bsen adopted in South Aus tralia since the granting of responsible government. Eighty thousand women have been freed from electoral injustice and disability. The number of the electors for the House of Assembly has been more than doubled. A step has been taken in advance of New Zealand by giving women the right to sit as well as vote. It is not too muck to say that the result of the experiment will be watched witli interest throughout the Empire. Indeed, there are not wanting signs to warrant the belief that it will not be long before the example of South Aus tralia will be copied in most parts of Australia. The Kingston Government has good reason to be proud of its connection with the reform. It has well earned the thanks so gladly bestowed by...

The Brewer's Conscience. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

The Brewer's Conscience. Once upon a time there lived a young brewer. His business flourished, for the thirst of his clients was great. The more they drank the less capable tlieir tongues became to judge of the purity of the drink. They wanted it stronger, and of greater body. And tlie brewer did as lie was told aud his business flourished more. But heavy weight rested on his chest; he could scarcely breathe, and his nights Mrere sleep less. If sleep at last overtook liim he dreamt of heaps of corpses, which he was obliged to cart by the dozens to the burial ground. He went to the doctors for advice. They thought he drank too much, but he could answer them that of all the beer he had brewed he had not drunk a single glass. Then he enquired of all the faculties of medicine and hygiene. They gravely shook their heads, but could not help him. At last an ^old woman advised him to visit a hermit. " He is a wise man and can do more than eat bread." So one fine Spring morning the young mau...

Farewell to Mr. T. K&ig. Oil Wednesday evening, at the Adelaide Democratic Club, a complimentary social was teudered to Air. Tom King, prior to his leaving for the New Australian Settlement. There was a very large number of members present. The President (Mr. T. Price, M.P.) occupied the chair. The Hon. G. McGregor proposed in suitable terms " The Democracy." Air. McPherson responded. Mr. J. Z. Sellar proposed "Our Guest," who he said was a member of the Club for nine years. Mr. King was not a great talker, but a great doer. He had always beeu one of the staunchest supporters of the Club. He was possessed of sterling and mauly qualities. No. man was more esteemed and respected in the Club, and prior to his departure he, on behalf of the Club, wished him and his family a long and pros perous career. The toast was drunk in bumpers. Mr. King, on rising to reply, was warmly applauded. He thanked them for the kind wishes they had expressed. He had faith in New Australia yet, and ...
