PERHAPS! [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 October 1917
PERHAPS I Oh, Ebenezer Waterskin was in great form at the temperance meet ing as he held forth on the glories cl teetotalism I" "Listen, my friends", he cried. "II you desire a long and happy life, then shun the drink as you would shun the smallpox I" At this a well-bitten old fellow 'at the back of the hall sprang up. "Don't believe him, boys. Look at me I I'm sixty-five to-day, sound in wind and limb, hearty and happy, and I've been a hard drinker all my llfel" "Ah," cried the lecturer, "but if you'd been a teetofiller you'd have been ninety by now I" Mrs. Newcomb : "Good morning. Is this Miss Wise's private academy t' Mrs. Blnakes (hotly) : "No, it is nott This is a private house, and these are my own children."

BRITAIN AS BANKER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 October 1917
BRITAIN AS BANKER. The striking manner in which his tory repeats itself is illustrated by an article published in a recent issue of "Country Life." When the long ware with Prance be gan in 1793, the only force Pitt had available consisted of but 30,000 men. This "contemptible little army," by strenuous exertions, he managed to increase in a year's time to 140,000 Including the militia, but exclusive of the 40,000 men composing "the for eign legion" serving in Flanders. These numbers Pitt described as "un paralleled, and such as could hardly be exceeded." To-day again the Gov ernment is following in Pitt's foot steps and training an army after war had been begun. During the campaigns of last cen tury, "Pitt's gold," as the French dubbed the wealth of Britain, enabled the troops of Russia, Sweden,. Aus tria, and Prussia to march ; the money was paid back in victory alone. Once more Britain is playing the role of banker to the Entente Powers, as well as training, arming, and transporti...
Social Notes. AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 October 1917
Social Notes. (BY THELMA.). TJSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION. In our last paper we noted the subc essful efforts in New South Wales in pposition to the first referendum. It raId have been legally possible for ictoria, South Australia and Tas enia, which had adopted the Consti ution, to federate by giptitioning the 'perial Parliament : but, without ' 'outh Wales, federation would are been absurd. It was, therefore, jse on the part of the abovementioned Yes" States to wait for favorable eilopments. The real point for herc States to consider was "What mendments would suit Reid and his .d ny supporters _?" In 189po the Victoriin Premier, eorge Turner, summoned a con mrence of State Premiers to meet in elbourne, when it was noteworthy to dd that it was joined by the Queens nd Premier, J. R. Dickson-this fact ignifying that the sixth State, Queens and, was now prepared to consider ederation. At this Conference five mendments were prepared, three of hich were financial, a fourth related o the power...

STORIES OF THE NAVY. REMINISCENCES OF AN AP MIRAL'S WIFE. There is an entertaining budget of stories in the Reminiscences of Lady Poore, wife of Admiral Sir Richard Poors, published by Smith, Elder. Here are a few gems : "Lord Morris had so whimsical a way with him, and was so entirely free from the self-assertiveness of the raconteur," says Lady Poores, "that anything he said seemed to me to have a special charm. We were talk ing of the spread of teetotalism on one occasion, and he remarked : " 'Well, I don't doubt that teeto tailors are very well-meaning people, or that they have done a great deal of good, but I find them dull. Indeed, I can't, with the best will In the world, picture to myself a party of teetotallers rollicking round the par'. ish pump.' " THE CHORUS GIRL SCORES. On the voyage out to Australia, her husband in 1911 having been appoint ed Commander-in-Chief of the Aus tralian station, Lady Poors encoun tered a most attractive and enter taining theatrical company ah...
