LITERARY NOTES. THE EMANCIPATTON OF THE AUTHOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

OTERARY^OTES. ' IHE EMAWpIPATTGN OF THET AUTHOR., The eighteenth century has' its appeal fc- ns alwayB. Gladly we*' welcome any literature that brings the \ mental eye into focus with the life of that period. The appeal is perennial, almost lrnsisi able. It may be the contrast afforded with out sober-sided age of commercial ism, but nevertheless we turn wijth relief in the portrayal of some brilliant assem blage gathered lite exotic blooms .in the house of an eminent notability oi that time. Alas! we say, the stately mannered bean, with his powdered pernque, his' em- broidered coat of lavender, his ruffles of Mechlin, he so deftly flicked the pendstetit speck of snnfE from. Alas! we say, he has departed. His plump calves, swelling within the white silk stockings, passed out of sight round the corner of his own century. We glance lovingly after him— the .indul gent glance one might bestow on an er Xant-lovable prodigal. We appear now, too, to be of more equable temperament. Very rare...

THEATRE ROYAL. "Our Miss Gibbs." [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

e THEATRE ROYAL. 44 Our Miss Gibbs.' How people love comic opera! If a plebiscite were taken in Adelaide to de cide which of the various forms of amuse ment is the most popular among theatre goers comic opera, would win — and win easily. It is looked forward to for weeks in advance in pleasurable anticipation, and when it does eventually appear the theatre where it is presented is booked solid the day the Bosnian is opened, This was the case -with 'Our Miss Gibbs.' The Yorkshire lass has been & long time getting to Adelaide. Playgoers had heard of 'her from the' other States, more par ticularly from Sydney, where she had a record run for Australia, which ended just over 12 months ago. -Since feen she has had a long tour, bnt she has lost none of her freshness and vivacity. This was strikingly manifested at the Theatre Royal to-night, when 'Onr 'Miss Gibbs' ?was presented in Adelaide for the first time by the J. C. Williamson Royal Comic Opera Company. It was welcomed right r...

BOOKS REVIEWED. A CHINESE JOAN OF ARC. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

BOOKS REVIEWED. ? A CHINESE JOAN OF ARC. The Eed Lantern,' by Edith Wherry; John Lane, The Bodley Head, London (through Eigby, Limited). — The authoress of this notable work has weaved romance and history into a rather striking picture of Old Carthage .and. her yellow myriads struggling frantically , to resist the ever creeping tide of foreign invasion. His torically it treats of the Boxer rising of 1900, and from the imaginative side the authoress has contributed a; fine study of the East and the West, which never can hope to meet. In the proem, a powerful piece of writing, tbtf lady introduces Old China— Madame Ling, . the peevish old grandmother, looking lovingly at her dis solute son as he pieces together her won drous casket in the yard of his Chinese coffin shop, and Mahlee, her granddaugh ter, the child of a ''foreign mandarin' to whom Madame Ling sold her own daugh ter for 70 taels— 'a good bargain, hard driven,' as the neighbours approvingly put it.

TIVOLI THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

TTVOLI THEATRE. The fact that people love high-class vaudeville was again exemplified to-night, as the Tivoli Theatre was crowded long before the risins of the curtain. The Pax ton Troupe of Acrobats, who made their initial Australian appearance, soon fount favour with their brilliant vaulting and hand-to-hand balancing. Their feats, which were nothing short of marvellous, have never been seen here before. They opened with extraordinary and clever hand balancing. Boys were thrown from one performer to another, the while they turning somersaults in mid^air, and caught hand to hand. Then they would be re versed and caught feet to band with — what it seemed in front — wondrous -ease and simplicity. Another fine feat was per formed with the aid of a pedestal and springboard. One performer stood on. a pedestal above a springboard, on which etoo4 a' bov. The man jumped down on the other end and the boy flew in the air, turned in his progress, and was caught hand to hand by another perform...

TOORAK. A BEAUTIFUL SUBURB. The Home of High Grade Housed [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

TOORAK. A BEAUTIFUL SUBURB. The Home of High Grade Houses. Few suburbs around Adelaide have sprung up so quickly and included so many beautiful homes as Toorak, which is bounded by Marryatville (Portrush road) on the east, Norwood ( Kensington   road) on the north, Rose Park (Giles street) on the west, and Monreith on the south. A double line of cars along Ken-   sington road provides easy access to the   city, the locality being within , the radius of the twopenny car section.   The area comprised within these boun- daries is about 40 or 50 acres, forming part of what was previously known as Prescott's section. It is a little more than two years ago since Messrs. Jack- man & Treloar recognised the possibili- ties of the locality for the creation of a beautiful suburb. The land is about 250 ft. above sea level, which means that it is 100 ft. higher than the topmost point in North Adelaide, or higher than any part of East Ad...

The Mail. ADELAIDE: MIDNIGHT, SATURDAY, May 18. INDUSTRIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

The Mail ADELAIDE: MIDNIGHT, SATURDAY, May 18. INDUSTRIALISM. University professors and students have put on their thinking caps and discussed the industrial situation. The community generally are pondering it. Workers find that they cannot relieve themselves of anxiety by engaging professional organ- isers and agitators or taking out an in- surance ticket with a union or party. The crisis provokes, demands individual and collective cogitation. In that fact is the first hopeful sign. When a people come to reflect and reason together the risk of explosion becomes small. Not only is evolution thus practically assured, but the prospect brightens because intelligent controversy broadens views, deepens sym- pathies, and prepares the public mind for large beneficial changes and composes it to endure unavoidable ills, lesser evils, or good in disguise. No form of government, no constitution of society is conceivable, least of all under democracy, which will assure against unrest and change...

INTERESTING PEOPLE SENATOR VARDON. Printer and Politician. Hard-won Success. No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

INTERESTING PEOPLE SENATOR VARDON. Printer and Politician. Hard-won Success. No. 3. "I remember as a boy having to work from six in the morning to ten o'clock at night for three months at a stretch, not to speak of a two and a half miles walk home. I never thought it much hard- ship at the time, but I would not like to think of the boys having to do it to-day." Senator Joseph Vardon had a hard life in his young days, but that to him is no reason why others should suffer under unreasonable industrial conditions. Things have improved in Australia, and he is glad at the progress his country has made. From a lad in his teens, battling hard for a living, Mr. Joseph Vardon has risen to the position of a member of the Federal Senate, and head of a prosperous Adelaide firm, and every credit is due to him for a success achieved in the face of early difficulties. Now he is a robust citizen, who according to the measure of his years, is in the evening of his life; yet with a physical appearanc...

THE PRIMARY PRODUCER                           Conducted by Professor Angus, M.P. BACK TO THE LAND (Written Exclusively for "The Mail.")           Although it is doubtless true that the   settler who has sufficient capital to tide him over his first season without borrow- ing succeeds best in the end, yet there are many who do not start under these favourable conditions, and who have per- force to seek financial assistance either from the bank or from the Government institutions established for that purpose. It will be found in all borrowing transac- tions that the man who has least difficulty in securing a loan and also who can bor- row money under the best conditions is     the man who has effected considerable i...

DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

DAIRY. By "Jersey." (Written Exclusively for "The Mail.") Having backed the weather, put a saver on for drought. It may be truly stated that there exists no greater weakness in the dairying world to-day than shortage of suitable food sup- plies for our milch cows. The writer, in the last issue of "The Mail," drew at- tention to this fact, together with the haphazard methods which are practised in breeding, as the two weakest spots in the industry. It is indeed to be regret- ted that too great a number of our cow keepers are in "Queer street" as regards maintaining their milk supply, having most inadequate supplies of food on hand to tide them over the present dry period. It may be argued that throughout the State there obtain heavy supplies of good hay, but hay is not the food which should appeal most strongly to dairymen for milk production, unless fed in com- bination with some succulent and concen- trated foods, such as bran, ensilage, &c. Again, when pastures give out an...
