Mr. Cyrit Maude reminds old-stagers of John Laurence Toole, in a testy, old-man part which Ite once played ' here, and in which all the tuiuor characters revolved around him as he pivoted himself on the axis, so to speak, of his lame leg.

COUNTRY GOSSIP NEWS FROM ALL SOURCES Tasmanian Slate. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
COUNTRY GOSSIP 'news from all sources By HAYSEED. Tasmanian Slate. Few of the Australian States' arc so rich in all kinds of minerals, in proportion to size, as Tasmania. The hifjh price at present belnj asked for galvanised iron has directed attention to the possibilities of a substitute. A Laun ccston company many years ago took up an extensive deposit of slate at Bangor, ebout 17 miles from T.aunceston. A good deal of slate of good quality was obtained from an open cut,, but the volume of business did not provide a profitable investment. Some Melbourne capi talists, including the late Sir William Clarke, alKo put money into the venture, and imports i quarrymen from Wales and Cornwall. But the introduction of galvanised iron for roofing pur poses caused a cessation of this venture alfo. Now another attempt is being made to re open the quarry, and so establish another suc cessful mining industry in Tatsv. Wagga to the Fore.

Bush Brigands N.S. Wales 'Rangers III.-THE GREAT BANK ROBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
Bush Brigands N.S.Wales 'Rangers III. — THlB GREAT I1ANK ROBBERY. Bushraneing of the more serious character appears to have begun in N.S. Wales in about 1822. In that year 34 bushrangers were hung in Sydney. The crimes for which these men were executed were generally of a petty descrip tion. Robberies of articles from the farms had _ become so prevalent that it was deemed expe dient to adopt severe measures, but beyond re moving so many evil-doers and preventing them from continuing their depredations, this seve rity of the judicial authorities does not appear to have had much effect. Bushranging not only continued, but tha bushrangers became bolder and operated over a wider area. On March 10, 1826, a desperate) Tight took place between a party of mounted troopers and seven bushrangers near Bathurst. The Blue Mountains fiad only been crossed 13 years before, and the settlement was a very frmall one. The leader of the gang. Morris Connell, was shot dead by Corporal Brown, and the oth...

PHYSICAL TRAINING FOR GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
PHYSICAL TRAINING FOR GIRLS In order to secure the latest ideas in the physical training for women and growing girls, Mr. Christian Bjelke-Petersen, of the well known physical culture school, immediately be fore the war broke out, attended the large In ternational Physical Training Congress held in Silkeberg, Denmark, dealing with the modern aspect of the training for women. He also took courses in the Royal Central Gymnastic Insti tution and the Dr. Arvidson's Institute, Stock holm, these being the two leading institutions with regard to women's work. These modern and efficient methods have now all been introduced into the many girls' schools in which he and his brother teach. The Bjelke Petersen system for girls and ladles is regarded as enjoyable and beneficial, and calculated to give a graceful personality. Those Interested are asked to inspect their physical culture work at their school, 68 Eliza beth-street, Sydney, N.S. Wales, or write for particulars and testimonials. ? ;

A Pa&e fbr , -bung- People I By AUNT BEE. Dear Girls and Boys. ' It is really more polite put that way, isn't it ? Who ever heard of a chairman beginning, 'Gentlemen and Ladies' ? ' 'Isn't this strike terrible for all of us ? We must all hope, for the' sake of everyone c'on-, cerned, that the- men will soon go back to work. It means such suffering for so many innocent people. For, quite outside those in terested, many trades and occupations are being affected most seriously, and this means less wages or no wages at all, and a general shortage of money and food in the homes. Perhaps, however, we are nearer the end of the strike than we think. . I hope you are keen on the new competitions, and will send in lots of entries. Already there are signs that some, at least, have struck pay gravel, for I have had a number of letters. Next week the winners of , the July-August competitions will be announced. — AUNT BEE.
