Too Familiar. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 16 May 1914
Too Familiar. While at the Sandwich Islands I had an amusing experience with my Hawaiian servant. Now, these ser vants insist on calling you by your first name. Ours was always saying to my husband, "Yes, John," and to me, "Very well, Mary," etc., etc. So when we got a new cook, I told my husband to avoid calling me "Mary," as then, not knowing my name, he would have to say "missus" to me. So John always called me "sweetheart" or "dearie," never "Mary," but the watchful fellow gave me no title at all. 1 One day we had some officers to din ner, and, while awaiting the repast, J told them of the ruse I had adopted, and added, "By this servant, at least, you won't hear me called Mary." Just then the new cook entered the room. He bowed, and. said to me: "Sweetheart, dinner is served." "What?" I stammered, aghast at his familiarity. "Dinner is served, dearie," answered the new. cook.

"Good-first-rate!. And furniture how about furniture?" "Over £50,000." "Admirable! Take a house and go right through it, I s'pose-furnish it complete, could you, from top to bot tom, eh?"

So What's the Use? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 16 May 1914
So What's the Use7 "Yes, I went fishing yesterday," be gan the man who tries .to be original. "Luck? Well, about the worst I could have. I caught two fish. One was three and a-half inches long and the other two inches." But was he believed? Not much. After he had passed on someone com mented: "Bet he didn't even get a bite." "The question," writes the "Ade laide Observer," is often asked, with out a satisfactory reply being returned -"Is the best being done on the other side of the world in marketing the high-class products of Australia-in bringing" "them within easy reach of the great mass of the people who are always ready to purchase a good ar ticle at a reasonable price?" If applause makes a man think he's a Hon, he's an ass. If it makes him think he's an ass, there's a chance of his being a lion. Straining milk takes out the insol uble foreign matter, but It's the for eign substance in solution that does the real harm
Hoardings [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 16 May 1914
Hoardings The by-law recently passed by the Council to restrain the erection of hoardings is held in abeyance by the Minister of Public Works pend ing a conference between the Council and representatives of the Australian Advertising Company, printers and others interested, who recently interviewed the Minister and subsequently waited on the Public Works Committee of the Council. The Council however desire that the Conference should .be with the Building Regulation -Committee who drew up the by law. but the A.A.C. decline to confer with any Committee. They wish to discuss the matter with the whole Council. This the ouncil will not agree to, and has decided to request the minister to give his consent to tbe by-law without farther delay. There is no doubt that the drastic provisions of the by-law will materially affect the operations of printers, bill posters ; and others, and considering t-lie jiterests involved, the Council might reasonably accede to the request of the A A. &...
