LEGER TOTE DIVIDENDS. (To the Editor of "The Mirror.") [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
LEGER TOTE DIVIDENDS. (To the Editor of 'The Mirror.') Sir, — Just a request from one who1 reads your paper every Sabbath. , I know you will listen to reason. All through the past ages and right up to date the many newspapers have reli giously neglected tne five-bob punter, inasmuch as they have neglected to publish the Leger 5/ divvies (S.O. and place). This may not mean much to the regular race attendant, but as I bet tote odds on the Leger basis, owing to my inability to get to the races, r can assure you it means a great deal to me. and I know or many others similarly placed, to whom it would be a boon. Thanking you in anticipation. — Yours etc. 'DIVVY HONTEB.' LeederviHe, May 12, 192i. [If it be possible to get the figures we will publish them forthwith. — Ed.l

2min Observations [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
2nii ©ftservfllltis (From 'Trotting Review.') I must digress momentarBy In or-' der to state that previous to the ad vent Jof Lou DiUon it was only the radical element ,which offered the prophecv that a trotter would ever step a mile in 2min. or better. The weight of boib general aud prores sional opinion was against the pro position, and some of our college pro fessors who interested themselves in the matter from a so-called scientific standpoint, stated that 2min. was -a. mechanical impossibility. That was to mean that the trotting gait as a pure ly mechanical proposition could not lend iteself to this supreme effort. I could quote many horsemen on this subject, but will only give the obser vations of the late W. B. Fasig, founder of the Fasig-Tipton Company, manager at one time of the Gtenviue, O Grand -Circuit meeting, and re cognised as an expert authority on ay matters pertaining to the trotter and -r-o»-». -mtv TPusie- tonic a. exeat inter est in the practical angles of the s...
CRICKET [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
CRICKET Percy George Fender, the Eng lish amateur, and captain of Surrey XI, who made himself very unpo pular out here by unfair criticism of the Australians, has done something that will help to rehabilitate * him in the good graces of Australians. In the recent match against the Aus tralians, he saw to it that amateurs - and professionals used the same gate to enter and leave the* playing field. . This is the first occasion such a thing has been tried in Englaa&and it shows that the trip to Australia '*' did Percy George good. It* was 'Plum' Warner who introduced lie idea in Australia. It was when he was out in 1903, and at once he be came very popular. His side won thiee out of the five test matches, ami so regained the 'Ashes' held by Australia since 1897-98.

Midland Junction [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Midland Junction (By 'Box-On.') The itf-lies played a very good panic of rootball at Midland a few days ago. They kicked more behinds than goals. One person, commenting on what women can do now-a-days, said: 'They ride bikes, train horses, ride trotting ^winners, drJvc motors, play football, women o^asjistrates, women police, aud now they are actually in Parliament.' 'Yes,' said a listener, 'you can kid them to do almost anything but wort.' There will be hair-cuts and shave cuts rrco if Flo's intended ovor meets that Midland spark. The whole of Midland Junction is wise to who the marriageable widow is. Boh down, Mrs. H., you're spotted.

Perth Pubs and Publicans in the Nineties [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Perth Pubs and Pub- licans in the Nineties "Continuance": When the writer &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; first visited Perth, the city posses- sed one hansom cab owned by a Mr. Sloane, and driven by one &nbsp; "Sandy." There were two four- wheelers on the rank run by the Dyson brothers. The "Bulletin" in answer to enquiries, stated "The size of the city of Perth, the capi- tal of West Australia may be judged by the fact that the streets are kept clean by one man, one wheelbarrow, and one broom; its respectability, judged by the fact that the Mayor is a lineal descen- dant of the public hangman. Of pubs, as you left the station was found the Globe, then run by a cor- pulent New Zealander named Gat- wood; next door was a workmen's club, and next door again lived the first secretary of the Licensed Vic- tuallers' in one Rowe, a very clever journalist. The Royal was kept by Mr, Counsellor Foster, and a good house too; noted for its rum trade. The Gov...
Military Gymkhana. SENIOR CADETS AT LOTON'S. Public Stays Away. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Military Gymkhana SENIOR CADETS AT LOTON'S. Public Stays Away. Saturday broke fine, and any mis- givings regarding the weather inter- fering with the above sports meeting were set at rest. Major J. F. Rogers, of the A. and I. Staff, had everything in readiness gor the quick running of the items. The scoring was efficient. The Austra- lian flag was prominent in the arena. The "Jack" flew proudly over an empty grandstand. The 44th band played inspiring airs. The marquees were set with tables laden with the best of everything— for the guests; not for the competitors. Major-General Hobbs and Mayor Lathlain arrived in a Ford D.D. car, proudly flying a miniature Union Jack on its spark arrestor — we mean its radiator. They were staggered. Just as staggered as General Hobbs was him- self when he opened his "West" this morning and found his brass hat ap- peal to the public to attend the fix- ture was put away in the amuse- ments column instead of over the leading article.
