STAGE CHILDREN. QUESTION OF PROFESSION. AN EXPERT'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 15 May 1908

STAGE CHILDREN, QUESTION. OF PROFESSION. AN EXPERT'S VIEW. "Ellalino Terriss" writes in tho "Daily Mail" of 22nd February :~ I.faavo heard people argue that the stage 1B not a flttitig profession for chil dren because, in tho first place. It shows them an artificial and bad side of life; secondly, because It takes them away from their lessons: and, thirdly, b» cause it unsettles them and unfits them ' for work' afterwards. I cannot agree with such views, since my experience, which is rather exten sive, of children on the stage has given me quite different impressions on this subject. My husband and I have been giving children's plays for several year3 now, and we always make special prepara tions for tho accommodation of the little people at our theatres. In order' that they shall be. kept in their ,own sur roundings we provide them vflih special dressing-rooms, while those who ought to be at school have lessons given to them at certain times when they are not on the stage. As for t...

FLAVIA ON FINANCE. A FEMININE DIALOGUE. {UNPRACTICAL SENTIMENTS. Eva Anstruther writes in tlie "West I minster Gazette," of February 22: "Fate," said Flavin, tilting up a smouldering log with tlie toe of her gol* I' den shoe, "really 1B a shocking stage manager." 1 "Yea," I. said tentatively, wondering what -was in her mind. I "The way that human comedy is now Is simply monstrous. Take Jock, fbr instance, what could be inoro absurd than to expect a man o£ Ills type to play the part of Head of tlie Family, County Magnate-all that sort of thing. Why, the minute you see him you know he was born to be a tramp, or a poacher, or something delightful of that kind; and what lias Fate done ? Tut him In the position where be has got to spend his time punishing other people for doing things, he would thor oughly enjoy himself! He's no more fitted to pluy the part given to him than you are-or than I am, for the matter of that." "Exactly," I said. "But talking of Jock. ......" . \ "I'd much rath...

A TRAINING GROUND FOR AGRI CULTURAL LABOURERS. A Mattor for tho consideration of Marmora and Agricultural Associa tions. By a Farmer. Our farmers arc for ever calling out for labourers who understand agricul tural work, so is the British farmer. The ploughman and the milkman are at a premium; only a small sprinkling of the more adventurous spirits, amongst those who aspire to be some day farmers themselves find their way to Australia. There are, however, thousands of able-bodied, industrious men who-liavc no agricultural experience, no trade, or who arc unable to "obtain work in the trades they have been brought up to, who would be only too glad to take em ployment on our farms if they under stood the work they would be called upon to do. . . , , i But the farmer is loth to teach his hands the A B C of agricultural hfe« He is a busy man who has, generally, his own work to do, and he doesn t en gage a man until he has a job waiting for him. , .

The majority of stewards of a race club elected by their committee always consider that an honor has been conferred upon them, but a great-many seem to think that-there are no responsibilities. How many so-elected will you see a week be fore the races looking up the Secre tary to see if tliey can help him iii any way, if t le course has to be cleaned np, track harrowed, ^ hur dleg- erected, or nominators inter viewed ? the regular thing is to leave it all to the Secretary. The ordinary Steward arrives 011 the course just before the first rac^> sticks a riband on his coat, ana stalks to the Steward's stand a sort of exalted being whose name is lui portance, and whose dictum is filial, with slight- exception, the opinion of the A.J.C.

"I do not know," said he, "and if I did I wouldn't tell." I thought he muttered something else that bade me go to-thunder.

CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor Tocumwal " Guardian") SIR,-Now that the winter is ap proaching with its possibilities of floods I wish through the medium of your valuable paper to draw the attention of the officers of the Shire Council and the public to the con dition of the embankment near Blake's mill. This as is well known to some of our councillors was erected hurriedly to keep, back the rapid rise which took place in 1906. It was run up by dray, scoop and bar row work and although it stood the test of the then flood it was the break in the levee bank on the Vic torian side of the river which re relieved the pressure and ensured the safety of the bank. Since then the bank at the Barooga irrigation has been strengthened to such an extent as to ensure that no flood waters can affect it, and on the Vic torian- side of the river all the levee banks have been made good and built up to withstand a repetition of'the pressure under which they gave way before. It is a well known fact that...
