LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

LADIES' LETTER. Who will be the flrut, I wonder, to follow up.the,novel American plan of u fashion parade as a means of rais ing ir.onoy for the patriotic funds. We seem to have exhausted almost all our ideas and worn many of them thin to the point of boredom—such as gift aud flag auctions. Well, here Is some thing we have not hail yet—a patriotic fashion parade, which was worked to a great success by smart society in New York. It took place In the huge ballroom of a fashionable hotel, for they have no public halls on the Hues of our haliB where balls are given; these hotel ballrooms take their place. Many were bidden to the fashion dis play and a number of dinners were arranged at the hotel prior to the show, and the guests then adjourned to the ballroom. I'retty society girls sold programmes at the doors in quite the orthodox charity entertainment style. Then lights were lowered mid the stage was lighted and brilliantly attired mannlquins began to parade across it and down the gan...

JUST A LITTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

JUST A LITTLE. Just a little sunshine, Just a little rnln, Just a little journey O'er the verdant plnin. Just a little picnic Underneath the trees; Just a little skirmish With peevish bumblebees. Just a little nest of Hungry little ants, Hlting through the bosom Of my linen pants. Just some little spiders Dancing in the pie; Just sortie little mosquitoes Gnawing at my legs; Just a little mis-step In the soft-boiled eggs. Just a little blister On my sun-scorched neck; Just another picnic, And I'll be a wreck! —Tennyson J. Daft. "Blue Joy"—The other day 1 saw a man plav a low-down game on a rooster. Ho prepared a nest, put a dozen fresh eggs in It, and then atten ded to the rooster, whom he mado blind drunk, and kept him so for over three weeks, sitting 011 top of the eggs till they were hatched. You should see the look In the rooster's eyes when he got sober and could see whit he had beeu at. I felt sorry for him.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

CORRESPONDENCE. To the -Editor. Sir,—I would like to draw the atten tion of the young girls of 13ooi t to be careful when out of an evening, as there are certain young men who are always about and who are always ready to follow girls—not only young women, but even school girls. It would suit the young men (if one could call them men) if they were answering the Empire's call instead of frightening girls. Hoping this will put young girls on the watch for such men,and that the attention of the police will have been drawn — Yours, etc., AN UNPROTECTED GIRL.

And you shall sail the seas with him, And gaily Journey thro' England aud Spain—my sight grows dim— But pleasant deeds you'll do. "And when your glorious Journey's o'er. The castle of your dreams Achieved shall be—Its open door, Its candelabra-gleams! Servants shall flock to wait on you. To deck and scent your hair; And never a dream shall come un true, And never shall come a care. "You'll marry a girl," the Gipsy Bald, "A rich and wondrous girl, With flax a-Bhimmer on her head, With teeth of purost pearl, With lips as red as rubles are, And cheeks of rose and cream, With eyos each like a shining star Twin stars with love a-gleam.

MYSIA. Red Cross Carnival. A Great Success. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

MYSIA. Red Cross Carnival. A Great Success. Beautiful weather prevailed on the 27th ult., on which day a sports gather ing of more than ordinary interest was held at Mysia in aid of the Red Cross fundi. The chief feature of the day's events was the procession, and judging by the result a great deal of time and trouble was taken in making the necessary arrangements. The result was wonder fully satisfactory, and reflected great credit upon the organisers, who must feel gratified upon the success of their efforts. For a small district the num ber and variety of the characters would be hard to equal Everyone concerned did their utmost to bring about a suc cessful issue, and were amply repaid by the great interest displayed by all The procession started from the State school, and was led by the mar shall ~.\lr Joseph Evans—who made an imposing figure as John Hull. The members of the Korong Vale Hand fol lowed, playing patriotic airs. A special word is due to the members of the band, whos...

COMMENTS ON CURRENT EVENTS. BY GRADER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

COMMENTS ON CUR RENT EVENTS. By Gradkr. In the dcarold days ol' my dancing youth it was tlie privilege of the boy who " had the llure" to call for "Fisher's hornpipe." Then the danccr performed to the music of his own choice, and if he preferred the "Soldier's Joy" to "Fisher's," as many do now, lie had only to say so and his desire was ^ratified. llow differently things are managed in these degenerate days ! Now we are all required, under pain of mortal sin, to d'ince to Fisher's hornpipe 011 the i i th of next month. Dance we must whether we like it or not, and the mischief is, the dance will cost th<- country about one hundred thousand pounds. Personally I am of opinion that the money could be more usefully applied; but since an all-powerful body has decreed other wise, why, let us treat the matter philosophically, and, as we must endure it, let us endeavor to enjoy it, anil cry "On with dance! Let joy be uncordined." In the mean time what arc we to do with the tons of...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 11 November 1915

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES A story, of the opening of the line from Fromantle to Perth, and subse quently on to Guildford. The local cockles and other inhabi tants had but a vague Idea of how a line and locomotives worked, and spent much time arguing the point, very lew golug down the line to see how It was retting on. One section reckoned from what they'd seen in pictures the engine would choke itself with coaldust, while another group estimated that no rails .such as they saw could hold iron wheels on (they wore used to deep bush ruts and calculated occordingly). A third section, who mostly lived up where now is Chidlow's Well, Xortham and elsewhere, and had never seen a yard of the line laid, hung 011 to the theory that the engine and a train couldn't possibly dodge tho trees and would get bushed! When the eventful day arrived when tho little locomotive and a few box carriages were to dash in from Kre mantle at a breakneck Speed of about 7',4 miles per hour, tho fences, sheds, gravel h...
