Financial [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

Australia's trade during the year 1913 amounted 111 value to £158,212,851, a record since the establishment of Federation. The total showed an increase oi £958,161 over the figures for the immediately preceding twelve months' trade. One undesirable feature of the statistics for last year was the preponderance of imports over exports, the balance of trade representing no less than £1,210,345 against the Common wealth. This is the first occasion in the his tory of the Commonwealth, as such, on which there has been an excess of imports over ex ports. The vaiue of our shipments of produce, etc., to other countries was £78,501,253, whilst oar intake from outside sources amounted to the cash equivalent of £79,711,598. The shrink age in exports ; is attributable solely to the diminished exportation of gold, that important item falling off to the extent of £8,854,453 when compared with the value of that despatched abroad in 1912. Fortunately, there was a gain of £8,250,616 in the value of m...

Photo Focus. PHOTOGRAPHING MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

By 'Lens." PHOTOGRAPHING MOTION. The great majority of amateur photographers nave snapshot cameras of which the full speed of the shutxer (actual speed, not marked speed) may be put down at somewhere about the thirtieth or ior tieth of a second, with a lens of, say, four and a half to six inches focus. With such an outfit, a horse and cart, with the horse walking- neither iu the direction of the line of sight nor at right angles thereto, but about midway between the two, will usually be sharply rendered if the horse is not more than about an incb and a half high on tho plate. A man walking may be taken on the same scale. A trotting horse would have to be on a smaller scale to lj£ sharp. Trains, motor cars, and ships, provided the direction is kept fairly well in the line of sight, and the objects do not occupy moie than about an inch or an inch and a quarter, ar., quite within the scope of such apparatus, wlutn is also very capable of dealing with moving ships, eta.

DAYLIGHT ENLARGER WITH ARTIFICIAL LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

DAYLIGHT ENLARGER WITH ARTIFICIAL LIGHT. If a daylight enlarger is to be used for artificial light at all. it is necessary to provide a difluser of some sort, so that the negative may be evenly illuminated. This can be done by means of ground g-lass, and, instead of buying any for the purpose, I should advise the photographer to grind it for himself, and to gynd both sides. Two pieces oi such glass will be needed, and they should measure at least one-fourth as large again, in each direction, as the negative to be enlarged. If two plain pieces of glass of this size are taken, the grinding can be done in half an hour or less, the only materials required bein< found in every house. The glass is first carefully cleaned, and then, one picce beir.p laid upon a smooth pad of newspaper on a ^rm table, ita upper surface is sprinkled with waier and with knife-powder. The other is then laid on top of it, and, with outspread fingers to distribute tho pressure uniformly, the two surfa...

PHOTOGRAPHIC USES OF LINOLEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

PHOTOGRAPHIC USES OF LINOLEUM. Linoleum is a product which has several special Uses ir. photography, quite apart from its function as a covering for the floor. Nothing is finer as a pad on which to trim prints than a piece of thick, smooth "lino." Another piece may be securely glued ail over the face of the enlarging easel, and will be found to take the dark-room pins for hold ing up the bromide paper much better than unv wood will do. Tf there is any Hall's White Dis temper in use, a eoat may be giv?n to it, and in this way an ideal surface for focussing purposes is provided. A shopt of it. well treated with beeswax and turpentine two or three times, is an. excellent protection for the table, if this is likely to be damaged by solutions being spilt upon it. Two pieces "5 * 4 glued to the top and bottom of a quarter-plate plate-box make .a package in which negative-; can be sent through the post with perfect safety. These are only a few of the photographic utilities of linoleum ; ot...

Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

Prattle JShoui People. At the A'.N.A. banquet Mr. Cook talked so much of Australia's influence in Ihe Tacific in conjunction with military matters that he seemed to incline to the belief that Australia's influence in the Pacific would not be a pacific influence. G-overnor Day Bosanquet, of Soustralia, is an enthusiastic supporter of racing.- lie thinks it would be something like a national disaster to discourage it. So'.much in a virile race de pends upon healthy outdoor sports that we should cherish our love of racing. "Punch" is no enemy to horseracing. It provides a fine entertainment for hundreds of thousands, but to link it up with the 'open-air sports that keep a race healthy is carrying eulogy a trifle too far. Horseracing is tin onlooker's game, and the games that refresh a race are those the people take part in. Extract from the recently-published lamenta tions of Bismarck: "I never thought that in my riper years I should be obliged to carry on such an unworthy trade as tha...

SPRING SNORT ON SPRING CLEANING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

SPRING SNORT ON SPRING CLEANING. Tno hous'i" is turned all upside down, I can't find anything, I greet the scene with heavy frown, And know again—it's Spring. Curtains are down, and carpets up. The dust is on the wing, I cannot find a plate or cup, 'Jhrough this confounded Spring. I kick my shins on vagrant chairs, And hop round with the sting, Then bash my head 'gainst chiftoniercs, I/isplaced because it's Spring. How can the wattle verso inspire— How can a poet sing When home is like a, house afire. Upset because it's Spring V Spring-cleaning doth the soul-sense hurt. And poetry's death-kneil ring ; There are more poems in honest dirt Than in a cleaned-up Spring. The e/ergrecn J. M. Davids, President ol the Legislative Council, is happiest when the Coun cil is at work ; but this can't tc said of Speaker Madden, of the Legislative Assembly j who knows how to enjoy leisun;. The Speaker has surely had enough strenuous labour to teach him the blessings of a little spare time. From the...

ARE OPERATIONS ALWAYS NECESSARY. The revolt aijreinst surpioal operations, especi ally on womenfolk, continues. Medicine and home trealrment are cheaper than en operation, which possibly explains whv operations are so fashionafhle—from the doctor's point of view. The Ladies' College of Health can point to many hundreds of cases where operations had been held, to be the only cure, but the patients preferred the College's Orange ILilv Home Treat ment, and are now fullv cured and permanemtlv restored to health.

Peoples We Know The Promise-Makers. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 5 February 1914

The Promise-.Makers. Solid, sound, safe ,mcn get into Parliament occasionally. It is wonderful that they do, because as a rule the candidate mpst favoured by the electors is he who tickled their ears and their imaginations most. He must, be able to pro mise anything, in the certain knowledge that he will never be called to account for failure to fulfil any of his promises. Such men appeal to the crowd. They are the .vote-getters. "Pino platform speakers" they are generally called. It can be taken as a fairly certain rule that the man who is described as a "fine platform speaker" at election time is one of these glib gentlemen who possess the gift of misleading au audience without letting it discover the fact. It was mainly because the Fisher Cfovernment ian out of promises at the last elections that Labour was defeated—by a majority of one.
