To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 4 October 1919
To the Editor, Sir. — Will you kindly publish this letter for me. One hears a lot in these days of settling soldiers on the land. NoW, in my case, I returned to Aussie on the 1st January 1919, and got my discharge about the 23rd of came month. On the 28th of January, I applied for this land in the Korijekup Area, and passed the board the same day. On the same day, I was told by one of Mr McOlarfcy's understudies that I should get a reply from them in ten days or so. Although I wrote to Mr McOlarty twice, I received no reply from him until March. I had a letter from him then saying Inspector Layman had received instructions to inapact my blocks, and upon reeemng a raport from him I should hear from them regarding my application. I saw Mr Mitchell and Mr McOlarty at Harvey when they were inspecting the Harvey district;, and was told by them then that they would do their best to get it fixed up for me as soon as possible. I wrote again aftrr a time but Btill no reply. In July I receive...
A Very Special Concern of Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 4 October 1919
A Very Special Concern of Government. -There is another way the Govern ment can help to encourage agricul-1 ture. You must have increased se curity for all capital that is spent upon the, land. No man will spend his capital anywhere, whether in in dustry or agriculture, unless he is quite certain he is going to get an adequate return for it, and that it will not be confiscated. You must. elim- inate the incompetent cultivator. You must have scientific » production, which involves more complete and thorough training. Training for the cultivation of the land ought to be a very special concern of the Govern ment.— Lloyd George. Our rulers in Australia, perhaps es pecially in :- Western Australia should note that last phrase; 'Training for the cultivation of the land ought to be a very special concern of the Go vernment.' It is not regarded as of very special concern by any. of our Australian Governments Germany made ifc her special concern. Ameri ca is making it her : special concern. ...
LYRIC THEATRE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 4 October 1919
LYRIC THEATRE. To the Editor. Sir,-r-The letters in your issues . of the 27th September and 1st October naturally interest me. It is the first time anything has appeared in print, but by no means the first time the idea of a better theatre for Bunbury has been mooted. Fully eighteen months ago it was seriously thought of, and I was approached on the sub» ject. I have been, and am now, fre quently asked why T do not do some thing to make the Lyric more com fortable. I advise all and sundry that it is not within my power, and that the trustees of the estate are of the class who take all but give noth ing. There is, as yet, no room for two theatres ; both Tvould go down. MrDavis* failure to make a living at the Bedford Hall proves that ; but, in .my opinion, an up-to-date, com fop£$l)ly seated theatre, showing the same clans of programmes aa 1 put on'; would pay_a lessee well and en« able him td - give the owner 'a good rent— 10, or even I2|, per cent per annum on the capital invested....

Infant Feeding An Increase in the Use of Dried Milk for Babies. A Healthful Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 4 October 1919
Infant Feeding An Increase in the Use of Dried Milk for Babies. A Healthful Food. Dried milk as a food for infants is being increasingly used in Australia, not, however, without some misgivings on the part of many persons as to the Y?i9'lom of the practice. In Great. BrUain, where this speciilisjd i re paration has been extensively used for many years, the Local Government Board recently requested one of its officials (Dr. P. J. H. Coutts) to inves tigate and report upon the advisability of its use for infant feeding. No fewer than twenty-six samples of dried milk were examined at the government laboratory, and an exhaustive inquiry was conducted at hospitals, nursing homes, and creches,- and in connection with child study and children's wel fare societies, respecting the results, beneficial or otherwise, of its adoption as a substitute for mother's milk. The conclusions arrived at by Dr.' F. J. H. Coutts, as embodied in the report that he presented to the board, may be sum marised ...

Outback Postal Conveniences. Mr. H. Gregory's Views [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 4 October 1919
Outback Postal Conveniences. Mr. H. Gregory's Views According to Mr. Webster, Mr. H. Gregory, the member for Dampier, has got more concessions for his constituency than have been obtain ed for all the other electorates in W.A. put together, and yet he was jiuL siubiiea. ivir. Gregory is not hkely to be satisfied while any of his constituents remain unsatisfied. He certainly doesn't pretend to be within measurable distance of being satis iied, as may be judged' by a recent' speech on postal facilities, or the lack of them, as /eported in Federal 'Han- sard. Mr. Gregory said:— 'I asked the Treasurer (Mr. Watt) a little while ago whether, when the Budget was being considered, he would favourably consider the plac ing of a sum on the Estimates for the purpose of giving better facilities to the people in the country. I think that is the attitude we ought to take up. Apparently, the policy of the Government is that the Postal De partment must pay; but any one who takes an interest in Aust...
NOAH'S SWEET TOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 4 October 1919
NOAH'S SWEET TOOTH. Who invented sweetmeats and con fectionery? , Diving deep into the story of the ancients, the writer has come to the conclusion that some, if not all the credit, must go to old friend Noah. He it was who first hit upon the idea of boiling down the stanch of the wheat and the juice of ' the grape. The result was a paste, said to be the or ijghial of our present-daiy Turkish 'delight.' . The ancient Egyptians knew all about making 'toothsome morsels,' although sugar was unknown. Whole fruits, particularly figs and dates, were used for flavouring pur poses, the latter especially for pre serves 'and cakes. In old tombs date sweetmeats have been found; also re cords of honey jellies. The making of confectionery, . in tact, goes back 3,400 years,- proof of which is to be found on the walls of Egyptian tombs. -
