Prattle Jib out Peovh. Cann is the name of the .Vew, South Wales Treasurer. Having the handling of the "tin," he is now "Tin" Cann. As a financier should be, this Treasurer is Canny. Sir George Reid's attention is directed to tlie practice and precept nt Mr. Champ Clark, Speaker of the House of Representatives to Uncle Sam, of U.S.A. Mr. Olari; declines to go to banquets that are not official and in some measure compulsory. His reasons are logical. "I am too ,busy to attend , banquets/' says Mr. Ohamp Clark. "Moreover, 1 have been told that the public men who die in Washing ton dig their graves with their own teeth, and l take the warning to h-,art." Mr. Clark will not eat his way to heaven. The warning to our own High Commissioner is very direct and most solomn. Is he digging his grave with his teeth, or, to be more explicit;, with a kniie and fork ?

People We Know The D.P.M.G's. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

The D.P.M.G's. There can be no country in the world, which has worse postal and telegraphic services than Australia. If there were, we should have heard of it. There would have been a revolution. The people would have risen in their wrath, hanged all the postmasters and other responsible people, and set up a Committee of Public Ef ficiency to control the Post Office It is only the patient, long-suffering Australian who could tolerate for years such a disorganised, unor ganised, helpless, unwieldy department as the Commonwealth Post Office. Some Captain of Industry in America once ofiered io take over the Host Office, give the people ol ibe United States more efficient services, reduce the staff employed by fifty per cent., reduce the charges for all services, and still, make .1 profit of a few millions a year.

THE PRINCIPLE OF "DRY MOUNTING." [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

I THE PRINCIPLE OF ' DRY MOUNTING." The principle of the dry mounting process is quite a simple one. A very thin tissue paper tis impregnated with certain gums, mostly shellac, which become sticky by heat. This tissue is placed between the print and the mount, and is pressed into c.ose contact with both by means of a hot' iron. The print and the mount both being dry when they are stuck together, there is no moisture to eausc cockling. A minor advantage is that the. tissue insulates the print from the mount to a threat o.xicnt, so that the purity of the latter is nc longer so important. The practice of dry mounting can be very briefly described. The untrirnmed print is laid face down-1 wards, and a piece of tissue as large as the print is adjusted on the back, and touched anywhere with the hot iron. This causes the tissue to adhere. where touched, to the print, and the two mav then hf trimmed together. The print and tissue are then carefully fidjusted upon the mount in the exact posi...

Our Natural Protectors. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

Our Natural Protectors. Once upon a time man, accepting his proud position as lord of creation, assumed the oner ous duty of natural protector of the other sex, but the times change and the manners—also the man. To-day it-, would appear that positions are reversed, and man's natural protcctor is wo man. Regarding herself in this light, and em bracing her responsibilities with heroic stoicism woirnn, as represented by the National Council of Australian women sitting at Hohart a lit tle while back, has declared her intention of protecting man from the shameless creatures who wear transparent skirts. Said Mrs. Henry Dobson, president : "Women are a disgrace to the community for the wnv they go about. I think it is necessary for Parliament lo bring in a Bill to protect men against women who wear transparent and slit skirts and low-necked blouses." The Council was almost unanimous ly of the same opinion, a'though, as a wife, each member did not doubt her ability to safe guard at least on...

A FOCUSSING DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

A FOCUSSING pRVICE. To Taku full advantage of the depth of focus conferred by the use of any particular stop. Scolik; has recommended the following procedure The most distant part of the subject which we wish to have perfectly sharp is first critically facussed with the full aperture of the lens. The stop which is to be used is then inserted, and the nearest object which it gives quite sharply is noted. The lens is then again opened up to full aperture, and that particular nearest object is sharply focussed. The lens is then once more stopped clown, and the ex posure made. It is a helpful plan in interior work especially.

The Day Of Rest. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

The Day Of Rest. Sic Alexander Peacock is delighted to be in a' position to; report that the order for the prose cution (or is it persecution?) of .John Thomas Collins, of Carlton, was not signed by h'm in a moment of absence of mind. The former Mia is tor, Mr. John Lemttnon, signed the order dur ing the reign of the Sudden Jerk Ministry head ed by Mr. Elmslie. We congratulate Sir xVuck on being out ci it, but uo doubt Mr. Lemmon is content. He has been true to Labour's ideal, which was expressed tersely by an intcr jector at one of Premier Watt's electioneering meetings : "Why should the worker work ?" The crime of Thomas Collins was working. He was^ caught at it after one o'clock on a Saturday, and was duly proceeded against and fined for his offence. The magistrates, not re cognising that work out of place is really a heinous crime, made the fine ridiculous bob. Still, the case makes it plain to Meibournians that, with a Labour Government in power, they cannot work with impunity....

UNSCREWING A LENS. When .'i lens is very tightly screwed into its flange, the difliculty in unscrewing it arises Irom the impossibility. in the ordinary way, of getting a (roo'l crip on t.ho brass mount. If a few elastic bands are put round the lens as tightly as possible, it will be found that this difficulty vanishes one can get as strong a grip as desired, and as a result tin" lens is unscrewed without further trouble, and,„ is of more importance, quite without risk.

Fines and Fractions. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

Floes and Fractions. Mr. Callaway's idea of permitting the pay ment n" fractions of fines commends itself to all classes of the community. It is common sense, and it is common justice ; and we all wonder that the fatuous old system of the whole fine and nothing but the fine has been permitted to survive so long. Mr. Callaway is Inspector-General of Penal Establishments, and may be regarded as in expert; authority oh the effect of punishment by fine. He points out that a very large proportion of our prison population is composed of persons gaoled for failing to pay fines, which means, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, that these men and women' are gaolbirds because they are poor. A money punishment can only apply to the poor. To a rich man an ordinary fine is a trifling matter. If he has been running riot with ins motor, and doing damage to person or property his fine of £10 or a month doesn't disturb him. He pays up in a matter-of-fact way, mounts the offending motor at the cou...
