PHOTOGRAPHIC TRAPS FOR ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

PHOTOGRAPHIC TRAFvS FOR ANIMALS. An article in ' American Photography" describes in detail the construction of cameras and flashlight apparatus, which can be left out of doors weeks or months on end without injury. The writer. Mr. William Nesbit, has eight such out5ts in the woods in his neighbourhood. A bait is used so arranged that when a wild animal nibbles at it the flashlight is discharged, and its discharge liberates the shutter of the camera. Notice boards marked "Danger" are placed against the outfits to warn ofl human beings ; but these did not prove to be sufficient to protect some of the earlier apparatus, which in corporated1 a five-dollar revolver, from. being stolen. In the first cameras made it was found that damp injured the plates, so much so that in some cases nothing but black spots developed up. The cameras are now made of aluminium, and are sealed up so as to be perfectly moisture-proof: while to make assurance doubly sure, calcium chloride is enclosed in each c...

Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

Prattle JRbout People. Mr. Prendergast, M.L.A., knows how to pre vent motor accidents in tbe streets, and; has put Parliament wise : "AIL motorists should treat every person crossing the street as a possible accident, and stop." We. cad see Flin ders and Swanston streets traffic bring con ducted on these lines. But Mr. Prendergast is quite mistaken if he thinks the course he sug guests would prevent . accidentia. We have the word of' an experienced chauffeur for it that 'it would do nothing of the kind. "Stop in the streets to avoid the possibility of running over someone," says the chauffeur, "and what hap pens ? Some benighted, inquisitive idiot of a pedestrian comes along examining!, the works with a match, explodes the patrol, and blows his silly head off. Take it from me, there's . no way of preventing accidents short! of keeping pedestrians in asylums." Mr. A. A. Billson thinks that Parliament should "readjust the reimbursement of mem bers' expenses." That is a -charming examp...

MOUNTING WITHOUT COCKLING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

MOUNTING WITHOUT COCKLING. The paper mount is first well damped (not satu rated) all over the back with a wet sponge partly squeezed out, and is allowed to expand lor, say, two or three minutes. The print is also slightly dumped in the same way, and the mountant— "Higgins" is a well-known brand—applied all over. It is tben placed in position on the mount, covered with clean paper and rubbed or squeegeed into contact, placed between several sheets of blotting paper, and left under a weighted drawing board for a lew hours—preferably all night. , Owing to t'nu mount and print expanding and contracting to ap proximately the same extent, a flat and workman like result is obtained.

REFLECTIONS IN PICTURE COPYING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

REFLECTIONS IN PICTURE COPYING. An oil painting with a very irregular surface is one of the most difficult subjects to copy, sinco whatever may be the angle at which it is viewed some parts of the varnished surface will be reflect ing white light. It is possible to reduce these re Ueetions to a remarkable extuit by photographing the painting, not direct, but us seen reflected on the surface of a piece of dark glass. $lack glass is best, hut a piect- of perfectly smooth ruby glass answers wry well. The angle at which the rellec tions are least visible must be found by trial. The exposure necessary will be increased several times, and the image reversed left for right ; but the former is no great drawback, and the latter can be overcome by using a lilin instead of a glass plate, or by printing by the single transfer carbon process, and when the reflections are. very trouble some it may be worth wnile getting rid of them at the cost of these trilling inconveniences.—J. Clark.

people we know One Big man. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

One Big man. E v'ery Ministry has • to have one big man in it—a man who can and (loos do things. This is an essential it a Ministry is to live any length of time. 1£ it is merely to fizzle out in a week or two, as the Elmslie Ministry did, then - nothing matters. Anybody can call ior a report on tne Third Degree, and order that it shall be stopped. That was the one achieve ment of the one and only Victorian Labour Ministry. But somehow the public, foolish as it is supposed to be by politicians, expects a Ministry which holds oilice for any length of time to do i something—to show, some legisla tive reason for its existence. Of course, from the political point of view this is absuid. Min isters should be required to do nothing else'but rem'ain in office. The tasic in •• itself is a most strenuous one, and a people that requires more is a nation of sweaters. Liut sweaters or not, Australians do require mote—not much more, certainly, but so much that it is necessary to have one man of ...

P[?]YCOER THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

By "Peter Quince." THEATRE ROYAL. lJroDabiy the best house of the present season filled the Theatre Royal on Saturday evening, when, for the last few nights of ' iir. Julius Knight and his company, Charlie Klein's Ameri can play, "The Lion and the Mouse," was staged. The piece was played here some few years back with Mr. Knight and Miss Kafcherine Grey in the leading characters. It may be re membered that the story deal-s with that American institution, the wealthy man, whose greed of gold is as insatiate as his lust for revenge upon any man who dares to interfere with his plans—in other words, it is part of his gospel to prove how dangerous it is for a man to come between, a dog ami his bone. John Buskett Ryder is the dog, his millions are the bone ; and Judge Rossmore the foolhardy man who, in the interests of justice, darts to come between. In consequence of certain judicial de cisions, Ryder determines to ''smash" Ross more, and lays a deep and shady plan for the purpose Ryder i...

The Little Silly and the Spieler. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

The Llttlo Silly and the Spieler. The police assert that there is a band of twelve ycung men at large in Melbourne who turn a dishonest penny by the simple process of our girls easy prey to the co-oporative band of Twelve Mashers, who, lacking the courage to break banks or to garrote citizens in the byways, and having pronounced objection to the customary methods of earning an honest crust, have .set about exploiting the innocents. As a rule, the girl who finds she has reposed trust in a mercenary rascal, who "wanted nothing but her purse and her bangles (and has got them); does not rush off to the police with her tale of woe. She goes home, and comforts herself with a long cry, and spends half the night con cocting a yarn about the vanished trinkets that will satisfy mother. She prefers to weep and bear it rather than tell the ignominious tale in a court of law, so the twelve '•knuts" go scathless, and, for this reason the business of fleecing simple souls of the opposite sex will ...

A Combine of States. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

A Combine of States. Run J-rey, devoted leader of the British in social and public works, and descendant of valiant and liberalising British leaders of the Past, gave two leads to Australians at the Federal, State and Municipal reception in Mel bourne on Tuesday. They made many thou sands ol people stimulated and thoughtful, thus proving in one short day how good a leader is this strong, capable, unassuming English man. His first point was partly commercial and partly Imperial. He asked for proper dis play and pushing of Empire produce and Em pire affairs in London. He asked for a com bine of States—a sort of Australian Common wealth Trust—so that"- our goods 5 hould receive proper advertisement in G-reat Britain. His point was that Australian produce does not now get a fair show.

Assault on the Defence Act. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

Assault on the Defence Act. The Mayor of Port' Melbourne, a ubiquitous individual named Page, who made himself ridiculous in his own Court-house. the other day, and has been following the limelight pe.rseveringly since appointed to his high post, has sent round to the Political Labour Coun cil branches a plea that the compulsory clauses of the Defence Act he abolished. On this im portant document is to be lound the signatures also of the vice-president of the Stcremen and Packers' Union (name unknown) and of the secretary of the Socialist party (introduction again lacking). The "appeal" would not he worth the paper it is written upon were it not that the discontent, which will always be simmering in Australia under the general en thusiasm1 for military service, has d.'.ring the last' few months been whipped- up bv grotesque criticism of military expenditure. .VI the anti defence forces are particularly active, and Coun cillor Page's little agitation comes, therefore, at an opportune...

The Problem Solved. G-ive ear to the cry of the servants. There will never he real .peace in the iiorne >intil Jane Ann and Bridget, cook :md jn.iid r»f all works, are fairly contented with their lot. Mistresses make the mistake of assuming that Jane Ann's grievances spring from natural depravity, and Bridget's complaints are cougenital, and would persist if she had an under-housemaid's place in heaven. This is absurd. There must be good and sufficient reason to explain the fact that Lucy -ovould rather work in a hot and noisy factory for less than she can get »r. do mestic service, and to explain why '.lary would twenty times rather be a shoj- girl than a. iqual to the demand'put up by the Jane Anns i and the Bridgets. The mistress who offered i this feeble apology was told that her own < charming daughters went to balls an<i theatres, 1 to boating and motor excursions, to garden 1 parties, • and afternoon teas, and bali-a-hundred 1 other social institution...
