AFTER THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934

AFTER THE WAR. All of 'em went to the war, That's how it is d'y'see. The farm has gone to ruin and wrack The old man said to me. All of 'em went to the war, . All of 'em wanted to go. Three of the best as ever was — Mnnt.v ? .Tmint.v. and .Tnp They wasn't the least alike, Monty was tall and spare; Six foot two and as hard as nails, And reg'lar devil-may-care. Out on his own with stock, You couldn't give him a start. And once in saddle you bet yer life He stuck like jam to a tart. Jaunty, the lad of the lot, Always the same old smile. Master of axe and saw, he was, And not too bad in the' mile. Joe, the youngest of all, With his mother's gipsy eyes. I didn't want him to go, you know, But p'rhaps I wasn't wise.

And try another life to blight, By smashing bones . or maiming sight, While he with cudgel shows his might Nor cares on whom the thing may . light. — That's cricket.

SUCCESSFUL SOWINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934

SUCCESSFUL SOWINGS. As almost any variety of vegetable can be sown and planted during the present and succeeding months, the aim. of every grower should be to regu late the sowings so that a succession of crops is maintained, sowing as nearly as ' possible i he quantities neded to meet household requirements and not in such quantities as will re ouiu lil VYaotC.

THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BORDER A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. By TOM GILL. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] CHAPTER XIII. Absolute liush fell. From out of the darkness sounded the clink of a horse's hoofs on the flagstones. Slowly a pow erful white horse emerged from among the shadows and a rider, masked and muffled in a heavy cloak, rode into the patio. Twice ne circiea amia tne aeaui like silence, then raised a gloved hand high in silent greeting. The spell of silence snapped. Like a single voice rose the grea;t deep chorus of men's voices, shouting wild welcome to this leader of the border band. The night thundered with the sound, the little cantina trembled, and far out over the desert rolled the cheers of these men of the Mexican border, pledging life and loyalty to the unknown leader. For long minutes the shouts echoed and redoubled, fill ing the patio, rising, it seemed, to the very stars; then silently the masked man turned his hor...

THE STRAND. FORTHCOMING ATTRACTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 1 February 1934

THE STRAND. FORTHCOMING . ATTRACTIONS. A number of nigh-class pro grammes are due for presentation during the next few weeks at - the popular Strand Theatre, commenc ing with the big Regatta Week pro gramme, starting this Saturday. The main feature is the Fox production, 'The Power and the Glory,' and is one picture that could be truly called great. The story, which is one of genuine interest, has a treatment new to pictures. 'The Power and Glory' is superbly acted. Spencer Tracy gives a performance of great power and establishes himself as an unusually fine character actor. Col leen Moore, who has not appeared on the screen for some time, has a straight dramatic role. It is a new line of work for her, and she comes through with flying colors. Ralph Morgan gives the best performance of his career in this picture. At no time does his own personalitv in trude upon with the characterisa tion. The supporting picture is a British drama, 'The Rasp.' / Commencing February 10th will be 'Lif...
