Women and the Church [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 January 1914

I :—— I Women and the Church It is easy for a schoolmistress , to lose lier sense of humour and propor tion and " to aoquiro an exaggerated idea of her own importance, as, wrapt in lier mantle of authority, and seated at her large raised desk dominating -rows'of smaller ' ones, she wields des^ potic fc-way over a kingdom of young people. She is indeed monarch of all she surreys. And in that small aloot world, which sets the limits ta her life, it is easy for her to Iobc sight of that bigger world which most of her pupils will presently enter, - some few only passing into her own. It is easy for her to fall under the numb ing spell of the Machine, which has moulded her during the plastic years of early youth into the pattern ap proved by those majestic bureaucrats, men and women, who control educa tion, and are apt to think that to them alone wisdom and clearness of vision are vouchsafed. It is easy for her to bo dazzled by the glamour of red tape and routine, foi- these clearly de f...

The Passing of the Poser [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 January 1914

The Passing of the Poser There are no posers on tile grand scale now. Our musicians have short hail' and play golf. Authors cannot ho distingui.siied from ordinary juen. Art students are abandoning their amazing clothes. Even poets have given up poetical looks, and instead of writing pretty fancies worry us with puuius of the outspoken natural school. Music is in tweeds, literature is in navy blue, and poetry is in a howler lute. Apparently there is no chance of any return of affectation. The world becomes more natural every day, and every hour some neglected pose dies a natural death. There «ro 110 startling and picturesque figures. The glittering Whistler was the last oi the artistic masters of pose, tlio last man willing to spend an hour before a looking-glass, the last man—to use his own word—who oould bo called •.imiizing." For now it is bad form to bo amazing, and everyone is ex pected to bo as insignificant ns pos sible The only affectation-I ft is the affectation of being na...

District News. MYRNIONG. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 January 1914

District Ne\y3. [From Our Correspondents and Exchanges.] i MYRNIONG. It is not often that the Myrniong Rifle Club appeals to the public for funds, but, being faced with a fairly | large expondituro in connection with the installation of a telephono on the range, it was decincd to hold a con cert and ball to raise funds to meet tho outlay. Mr A.J. Cresswell (who is a born artist) undertook to arrange tho programme, and tho event took place on Wednesday evening last. Unfortunately tho duststorm which prevailed just about tho time intend ing patrons were getting ready for leaving home, kopt many from at tending, and this fact prevented the hall from being crowded, it seemed fitting that many of the performers should hail from Ballan, owing to the local Rifle Club being a branch of that of Ballan. This fact, together with the really excellent niauuer in j which members of tho .Dramatic Club acquitted themselves, assured thetn a splendid reception when staging "Doing My Uncle," and shoul...

Valedictory. From the South-Western Herald (W.A.) [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 January 1914

Valedictory. From the Soitth-Westem Herald (W.A.) For some years in all the rush of opening up tlie huge forest area oE the east of the Ranges consequent on the opening of the Fauna and Flora re serve, the mails for tho busiest camps in the Soui)h-West have been distri buted and attended by Miss Burnsidc, the postmistress at Holyoakp. Mare business was done at this office than many official stations, yet through it all Miss Burnside presided with an energy, courtesy, and effort to meet the needs of everyone that made Miss Burnside's name one to conjure with throughout the forest. Recently it was decided to bring the office on to the official list, and Miss Burnside, who is to be married shortly, retired. When wcrd of tho retirement became known there was an immediate movo» ment to honor services which in the way they had been rendered and the conditions in which they were done made them priceless, and last week an uniquo gathering was held at the bush camp at Wuraming, some 15 miles...

Richards and Co.[?] Display[?] [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 January 1914

Richards and.Co.'i Display^ There can be only >ne opinion o£ the new display by the famous firm, Richards and Co., viz, "The best yet," It seoras hard to surpass tho many exoollcnt eshibitons made in tho past, but tho subtle idvancement in tho photographic ar; is clearly shown. For instance, the central shades are displayed in colors which lend a roalastic effect, which impols the beholder to doubt vhether they are really pi'oduced by tie camera, in the ordinary manner. Perhaps the two most striking examples are large head studies of young lad ies. One is a Rembrandt effect, with beautiful luminosity in tlie shadows, ! a scarlet .feather which i' deponding from tho hair striking ft tnvel note iu portrait composition. Ths other ex ample is u large full face portrait en titled "The Coral Neckkce." Tho expression is most lifelike and im pressive. Tho display ol photos by Richards and Co. would be incom plete without bridal portraiture, for which Richards and Co. aro famod throughout...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 January 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER ' (From Mir SpeeinlCorrespondent":)"" I Something Jilte nn American inva sion 1ms taken place in this city. At the theatres, most of tho "turns" arc supplied liv people from that country; ragi:me has taken possessison ol! the "homes, and the public places where mu sic is made; and the millionaire-con ducted baseball players have been loom ing large.not only as exponents of the gamo that is to the American what iootball is to the Australian; but as the lions of soc:al and civic circles. But like tile motor racing that was recently similarly "boosted." baseball failed to arouse any enthusiasm, and if the ob jet of bringing a big party of players who are said to receive annual "re tainers" running into many thousands of dollars, to this country, was, as al leged, simply to promote understanding, of and interest in tho game, the men behind the movement are due for a lot of disappointment.
