DEFINING A TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 February 1914

DEFINING A TRADE Four Law Lords and Ave eminent counsel were occupied in tho House of Lords yesterday In an endeavor to settle whether boiling a kettle "is or is not a trade (says the "Daily News" of November 15), They did not sue-, ceed—at least> their ' lordships re served judgment without calling upon counsel for the respondent, Lord Hals bury remarking that if they desired to hear them they would notify them to that effect. The respondent yesterday was the occupier and licensee of the Crutched Friar Hotel, John street, Minories. The appellants were the Metropolitan Water Board, and the question at issue was whether tho water supply was one for trade or domestic pur poses, in view of the fact that a cater ing business is carried on at the hoieJ. One or two posers were put by Lord Halsbury to Mr. Clavell Salter, K.C., who opened for the Water Board, and argued that the catering consti tuted a trade within the meaning of the Act. "If an old woman had someone to tea (to be paid f...

OPPOSING FORCES' " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, 1 am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink, And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the price, And the price is low, If Luxil give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink. as o Won't Shrink Woollens. Lever Brother* Limited, Sydney.

Other People's opinions. MATERNITY BONUS TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 February 1914

Other People s opinions. M ATBHNITY HONUS. TO THE EDITOR. . I : Sir,—When the maternity' bonus ! was first proposed I thought it a I strange proposal. Recently I 'liave: | been thinking the subject over and here are a few thoughts. (l)iOuly afevv contribute to lying in hospitals, all taxpayers-contribute to the ma ternity bonus, and the same remarks apply to the refuge and similar in stitutions. [2] Those who are in favor of !a: tax on bachelors must see that as bachelors contribute to -I the revenue this is an easy,wayof; getting at them. (3) When a birth 1 takes place and the husband is out of employment the bonus will be found very useful. [4] It is not .al-. together new, as under the Compul sory Insurance Act in England'a maternity bonus of ,£1.10 is given. Therefore, as all ladies pay their share of the revenue, let all who become entitled to it accept it, and look pleasant, and feel happy to | know that the bachelor is taxed in directlv.— Yours etc., philosopher.

VISIT TO AUSTRALIA Mr. E. W.
