TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

TOWN HALL. Tlie Town Hall was packed again last night, and hundreds of wouid-be patrons had to be turned away disappointed. The programme is a real topnotcher, and every picture earned well-merited applause. 'The Deserter' is a headliner worth going a long way to see. It is realistic^ ironi start to finish. The Wondergraph \\ eckly is another applause winner, which amply proves that patrons appreciate local pic tures, especially when they are up to the standard of the present series. Current bill of fare will be shown for two more nights only. On Wednesday evening a brand new selection of pictures will be screened. These will include 'With Capt. Scott to the South Pole/' which has been specially secured by the Wondergraph Company, who hold the sole South Aus tralian rights. This picture is a cinema tograph record of the work of the British antarctic expedition, from the departure from New Zealand to February of the present year. They were taken by Mr. Herbert C.

TIVOLI THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

TIYOLI THEATRE.' Everybody who is anybody at all — or anybody who is somebody — has made the Tivoli Theatre their Mecca this week. Considering Adelaide has never seen an act like the Paxtcn Troupe present ''The Mail' is beginning to believe that the pub lic of Adelaide are recognising that the vaudeville fare handed out nightly at the popular King William street theatre is not comm-ised of the 'Fluffy Sisters' and six dozen comedians who endeavour to be funny. There is no mistaking the fact that the Rickaxdian management secure the finest acts procurable in the whole vaude ville field of to-day. Other engagements than the Paxton Troupe have exemplified that. The Paxtons confirm it as ably as Binaldo. A second look at these remark able balancers, vaulters, and hand-to-hand catchers, again Bad us astounded and in suspense the whole time they held the boards. The precision, agility, nerve, en durance, and strength displayed to per form such hazardous work must surely be the outcome of ...

CURRENT COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

CURRENT COMMENT. During the last few weeks the press has been busy with the familiar old headline —'A Wave of Crime,' Just how many misdeeds constitute a 'wave' depends upon journalistic imagination, which is, at most times, liable to be stirred intoj anger or resentment at a trifling theft. and positively revels in the pathos sur- 1 rounding the poor lonely widow whose life savings have been meanly pilfered out of an old and mildewed stocking — hidden in the gloom of the kitchen chimney for ; preference. Such indignant horror is | ludicrous when it is considered that the police, at whom the long lean digit of scorn and contumely is pointed, have j been denied the very means of crime de- I tection which has made the police force in the West, for instance, the most alert and successful in Australia. It is asked, and no doubt with justice, that if the de tectives are not overworked they wiU kindly explain why so i'ew of their clues ! lead them on to the right track. After i that the d...

PLAYS, PLAYERS, AND PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

PLAYS, PLAYERS, AND PICTURES. The one and only Tittel Brune is still playing Laura Murdock in 'The Easiest Way' in fogland on tour. 'Night Birds' has been played over a liundred times at London Lyric An actress knows when she is getting passe when the critics describe her as 'younger than ever.' They were discussing the probable, im probable, and 'no earthly' starters for the Programme Stakes in connection with the forthcoming royal performance by vaudeville artists. Everybody's doing it, framing ideal programmes; and they were working the same stunt. 'Bet you a quid,' jerked in the Absolute Stranger, ''that 111 name a turn that'll take pre cedence of all the others.' 'Done!' ac quiesced the Reckless Raconteur promptly. 'Name it!' 'The overture.'' And the loser declined to part on the plea that he was not paying over a ''banned' se lection. R. A. Roberts, who ? showed Adelaide protean work worth while, was at latest appearing at Keith and Proctor's Fifth Avenue Theatre, I\ew York, i...

The Mail. ADELAIDE: MIDNIGHT, SATURDAY. MAY 25, 1912. LIQUOR TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

The Mail. 1DELA1DE: MIDNIGHT, SATtBDAY, MAY 25, 1912. LIQUOR TRADE. What should be. the civic attitude of a reasonable man towards the liquor trade? ] First the question concerning whether al cohol in any forni is -a poison to be pro hibited does not enter into the issue as a matter of statecraft, because a large ma jority of the people believe, and act on the belief, that, taken in moderation, the beverage is good and -wholesome. If that large majority should 'be entirely convert ed to an opposite way of thinking .end sicting the precedents i of democracy would leave no doubt whaofc course would be followed, though even' the point whether minorities may be coerced against the con bcience in the matter would be warmly argued. Still, the present is not a case of a majority dictating a dietary, but of a minority making certain claims in the name of social reform. In determining a controversy it is well to try and ascer tain the ground upon which the disput ants stand in agreement. Her...

"THE NORTH "COUNTREE." Notes by the Way. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

"THE NORTH COUNTREE."   Notes by the Way. (By NOMAD.) To one who for the past 16 years has lived among the sand and the mulga on the Westralian goldfields d journey through the rich land stretching north- wards from Adelaide promised a rare treat, even though seen under most un- favourable conditions possible, owing to the protracted dry season. Even allow- ing for all that, the glorious possibilities are evident to the most casual observer, and when we know that a day's rain will make the apparent desert smile, and be fruitful we are prepared to put up with the discomfort for the time, knowing the joys that will follow. But - It is not good to be mowers,   And gather the ripe gold ears,   Until we have first been sowers, And watered the furrows with tears. It is not just as we'd take it, This wonderful world of ours; The harvest is jst as we make it- A harvest of thorns or flowers. So says the poet; but he had plainly not given any chance to t...

PURIFICATION OF MUDDY WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

PURIFICATION OF MUDDY WATER. Any method whereby muddy water can be cleared of mud is ,of importance es pecially to those whose domestic supplies are dependent qn storage in tanks or dams. But even where stock supplies are got carrying a considerable_ quantity of mud the precipitation of this is an advantage to the pastoralist and farmer. Various experiments in chemical preci pitation of mud have been made, and here are several substances that will bring about this effect. For instance, 1 lb. of aluminium chloride will clear 2,500 gallons of muddy water; 1 lb. ferric chlo ride will clear from 1,000-2.500 gallons; 1 b. of chromium chloride, 1,000-2,000 gal lons; 1 lb. of alum will clear 500-1,000 gal lons. Besides these there are other salts that will act in the same way, but which are much less effective, the chief of these being lime (Ca.O.). This is one of the cheapest substances that can be used for this pur pose, but the brilliancy of the action of 'iron chloride, that is. the ef...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. BITTER PIT IN EXPORT APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

ITEMS OF INTEREST. BITTER PIT IN EXPORT APPLES. Advices from London disclose the fact that consignments of South Australian apples are arriving there seriously affect ed by bitter pit. Growers and others at this end are unable to account for this fact, as the disease has been very little in evidence here during the past season. Even fruit that has been kept in cool stores locally has not developed any seri ous signs of it. Various theories are ad vanced as to the probable cause of the de velopment of the disease in transit, siu-jdj; those mentioned being irregular tempers, atures in the freezing chambers on the boat and the possibility that the so called 'cold storage spot' has in the ab sence of expert examination been mis taken for bitter pit. An outstanding fea ture of the trouble is that Dun's Seedling, a variety which was hitherto considered to be practically immune to this disease, has developed it to a marked degree iii the oversea consignments. LOCAL STOCK MARKETS. Cattle.— ...
