Skating Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 13 August 1914

Skatiiig Carnival. The skating carnival held in the Victoria Hall on Wednesday evening of last week proved a most successful event, and an en joyable time was spent by all. Some very pretty fancy dresses were worn by the ladies, but only a few gentlemen appeared in fancy costumes. The first prize for graceful couple was awarded by public vote to Miss A. Tacey and Mr. E. Moylan ; for the best fancy-dressed lady, Miss M. Stevens was selected, and Mr. H. Wilson scored for the gentlemen. As on previous occasions, the potato race proved the most ex citing event in the programme, and was won by Mr. Les. Moylan, who is undoubtedly a champion at this race, In the teams flag race, the reds won by a few inches from the whites, but for this race the hall is too short. At the close of the skating the hall was soon put in order for dancing, in which most of the onlookers took a part, finishing up about 12.30. The music was supplied by Mr. H. Haines.

The Good Customer. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 August 1914

The Good Customer. "The good customer is not always the man who gives the biggest order, nor yet the one who pays his bills promptly,—not but these traits are good ones in any customer—but the good customer is the man who buys what he wants at the same price and on the same terms as other buyers get, and who pays for what he buys when he says he will. No customer can be said to be a good one who is always trying to beat down a price or obtain an extra favor m terms. A good customer is not the man who is always seeking to j claim allowances for shortages or I errors that are partly or wholly fictitious. Nor is he a good cus tomer who mails a cheque on the twelfth day with the tenth day dis count taken off. In fact a good customer is a man who gives and expects a fair deal in ever transac tion. Large buyers are apt to be pursued and fawned upon until they are spoiled and get an inflated idea of their own importance, and insist upon concessions that they are not entitled to. A small bu...

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 August 1914

CHAPTER V. /""or few moments as he sa ;here on liis chUrger, with the rear guard just passing by him into the magazine gates, and the natives now gathering menacingly round, Cap tain Melton felt as if all hope was over, and those who had heen saved, ■were as nothing. Then, nerving himself he set spurs to his horse, and, regardless of the angry shouts and the fall of a few bull.ets, recalled the rear guard to question them. No, thtey had seen no palkee borne away. As far as they knew, they hail swept the last of the fugitives before tlieni. " Tlicy may liavc been caught up at one of the side streets, sir, and carried away," said a sergeant. " True," said Melton, gloomily ; and then to himself, "Mad fool that I was, not to watch over them ! What will poor Fred say ?" It was also what was his own heart saying by way of reproach, for now the thought of the weak, gentle girls being in the hands of the mu tineers, perhaps of the chief Dala himself, was growing unbearable.

Palmer, the Liberal candidate for the Ecliuca seat in the House of Representatives, addressed a well attended meeting of electors. Mr. Richards, J.P. (president of the People's Party) occupied the chair, and Lriefly introduced the speaker. Mr. Palmer prefaced his ad dress with reference to the pre vailing European war, which, he said, made the forthcoming elec tion more important than it other wise would be, in view of the fact that vital issues would arise that would have to be dealt with by the Federal Parliament. In re gard to the election, points of difference between the Labor Party and Liberals was that the Liberal Party stood for private enterprise, encouragement, and taxation (light as possible) for purposes of Government; whilst the nationalising policy of the Labor Party must lead to extra vagant expenditures, inasmuch as to nationalise the capital values of proportios must.bo roduc...
