TIMBER WORKERS' TROUBLE. MR. SUTCH'S POSITION. The affairs of the -Sawmill and Timber Yard Employees' Association were under consideration at a special meeting of the members of the Melbourne Branch last week. Out of 1200 members there was an attendance of .about: 70. At present the association is debarred from affiliation with the Trades. Hall Council.

THE FIGHT FOR THE FRANCHISE. AN AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S EXPERIENCE IN BRITAIN. Sidelights on the Penal System. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

THE FIGHT FOR THE FRANCHISE. 'AN AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S EXPERI ? ENCE IN BRITAIN. Sidelights on the Penal System. Lecturing in Kings' Hall, Phillip-street, Sydney, Miss Muriel Matters, the British woman's suffragist, told a large audience much concerning the experiences of her self ^ahd others when imprisoned in Hoi— loway Prison, London, for agitating too aggressively for the franchise for women. Of the 500 suffragists, she said, who had been similarly punished in various parts of England, not 20 had done anything that could be seriously regarded as an offence ctguuiBu tne law. in ureat .Britain reform never was granted merely because at the back of it was justice. Reform never came without long and persistent agita tion, in the course of which many had to suffer in order that justice might prevail. In the British Parliament 35 bills had been introduced to grant the same politi cal rights to women as to men, and every one of these had been stifled, talked out, laughed out, voted out, o...

STITCHERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

STITCHERY. When I had to toke to glasses, it was £ case of 'Put them always in the same place or never know where they are.' I guess lots of other people know what that means. When I got tired of losing theni , I bought a crochet hook and a- ball of - black crochet cotton arid worked a holder:, to hang on my belt. As soon as the black- ? begins to look shabby, I make a new holder. The simplest pattern -is to make a ring of six chain. Cover with twelve trebles. Join. Work on these one treble, one chain seventeen times, and join. Re peat till nearly as long as the spectacle ' . case. Then do a row of one treble,'two chain,' and join. Secure the ends of the thread, and then crochet a cord, and run it through the last row of loops. Finish with tassels, and you will always know where your glasses are. To make the tassels, wind the cotton twenty -times round two fingers. Remove and tie a cotton through the top of the ring so formed. Cut through the loops at the op posite side, and tie fou...

HOUSEHOLD [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

HOUSEHOLD A Tousn .substitute for knife powder la cinders pounded very fine and Bifted through muslin. It must be fine, or it will . scratch the blades. If you have neither ' sand nor monkey soap, and the knives are very much stained, sift ashes, and - make a powder, of the fine part. It is aa good as whiting. Lay it on wet like whit ing, and polish when dry. It is better than the homely method of digging the bladea ; into the earth, as it does not take tho edge. - # # # A Cold Weather Hint.— Keep the feet warm, and you will do away with ona cause of headache. Because the weather is cold and the windows less freely open, do not keep out the light. More light is : needed in winter than in summer, as the days are so short, and less light is given. Light is the enemy of dirt; and dirt is; the friend of germs and disease. Though you may not think it, a house gets nearly, as dusty in winter as in summer, because the fires kept dry the mud brought in by damp boots. It takes but a very sma...
