Murder as a Fine Art. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
Mlurder.as a Fine Art. News of terrible significance and import is to hand from Chicago, where a body of doctors, chemists, and judges experienced in criminal in vestigation, have combined in an application to the government of the county .for funds for the establish ment of a special b)oardl.-of exam iners of expert scientific murderers, whose methods, it is averred, have been so perfected as to make the detection of murder by poisons im possible by any existing nmeans. "Murder has at last become a fine art," declare four celebrated local criminologists. The "cobra death" is in especially high favour with murderers. This is accomplished by simply scratch ing the skin of the victim with cobra poison, very much after the style of Lucretia B3orgia-, an agon ising death resulting in a few min utes. Save by specialists, this cause of death is undiscoverable. In other. cases, intending murderers lightly turn to thoughts of easily administrable capsules containing germs of deadly diseases...

PATRIOTIC FIRE EXTENDS TO ALL CLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
PATRIOTIC FIRE EXTENDS TO ALL CLASSES. The feeling of tense nervous ex citement and physical inertia, which was common on the first news of the war, has given way to an intensely practic'al feelng of patriotism, which is manifesting itself in scores of ways. Relief funds have been rapidly subscribed, and money has simply rolled in'to the several ap peals which have been made. Our soldiers have volunteered for active service, and the camp at Broadmea dows contains many of the finest flower of Australian manhood. Wies, mothers, sisters and friends have been working assiduously and unceasingly in order that our troops may be well equipped with those necessary comforts which help to keep the fighting soldier-effective; and gifts in kind for provisioning and sustaining our- first contingent have been provided with a lavish hand. The gifts of the rich and the mites of the poor have also been poured into one common treasury,- in order that prospective widows and orphans may be adequately p...
BRITAIN'S SONS RESPOND TO THE CALL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
BRITAIN'S SONS RESPOND TO THE CALL. Whilst Europe is thus plunged into an inferno~. Togoland has been :taken in South Africa, and the Boers [have expressed themselves as glad to .. .~ be under the British flag. Concur rently, New Zealand has seized Samoa, - which has always been a menace since the Germans started their colonisation scheme there; and our own Australian soldiers have taken Rabaul and Herbertshohe, in New Guinea. Whilst it may be said that they were of little use to their. former owners, inasmuch as the cost of a military upkeep came out of the pockets of an already overtaxed a people, there can be no doubt of their a commercial and moral value to our t rapidly growing continent of the r Southern Seas. It will be ours to e show that respect to the native races o to which they are justly entitled, and -at the same time to open up the riches which lie buried at present in , those islands of such rich fertility.

WE MUST "KEEP THE MILL GOING"! [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
WE MUST "'KEEP THIE MILL GOING" ! Nothing could be more suicidal to the best interests of Australia than to allow a craven fear to interrupt our commercial pursuits. - With Bri tain's command of the seas, most of the markets of the world are still at our service; and it behoves our manu facturers'to study the requirements of other lands in order that we may effectively provide for their orders wherever possible. Our own trades nlen and workers should be kept from idleness, even if stock has to be made up for future sale. There can be no doubt but that when the war ceases-and there are already indica tions that it cannot last the length of time which some pessimists prophesy -there will set in a great demand for Australian produce and manufac fites. - 'By-everybody helpi~"ionfe an other, and employees standing shoulder to shoulder with employers, the strain and tension will be felt far less than if capital buttons up its breeches pocket or labour attempts to unduly assert itself as t...
