MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

MUSIC. By "O.rleo." Does Australia realise the big things Percy v,. Grainger, the Melbourne pianist, is doing abroad? Everywhere he is acclaimed as the "great Australian composer." Sir Henry Wood has' many times conducted his orchestral works, not only at the Symphony and Promenade Con certs in London, but in every important town in Great Britain. • Mengeiberg, the famous Dutch conductor, included his "JVIock Morris" on the Philharmonic concert programme last November, and used 100 string players ior, the performance. In Berlin the "Mock Morris," "Shepherds Hey," and "Irish Tune," have been conducted on several occasions by Ricliard Strauss, and also Thomas Beecham. New York has also lauded him as the coming composer, and Damrisch (one of the finest conductors in New York), recently led several of his orches tral works before an, enormous audience in the Carnegie Hall, and as he himself'said,, "to the delight of myself, audience and critics." Mr. Grainger's '''Walking Time" for wind...

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

THE WHISPERING GALLERY. High military officers will soon maKe room for others, and be thrust out upon an unsympa thetic wprld without pensions and with very little pay. But, having onjovod for /nany years THE WELL-FED AUSTRALIAN. (Sir lan Hamilton said at Mb reception he found the Australians well booted, well clothed and well fed—perhaps too well fed.) Sir George,—"Here, I say!'Who are you looking~at?" " the good four-figure sararies subscribed by the public for its leading fighting men—and having escaped, though unwillingly, the scratches of battle—{they have much 10 be thankful for. Mili tary officers' offices are happy pl.u.es, where work seldom reaches the overtime stage, and often makes barren a six-hour day ; but the undercurrent of discontent is always there, and if discipline and good form allowed it an officers' association, would be :i milii ant union. A military officer must get promotion by a cer tain age, or he. goes out ; even if a brigadier general he must get on or ...

People We Know Antique Military Officers. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

Antique Military Officers. It is a matter for congratulation. that the old and effete olliccrs, who cumjered . up the Commonwealth military forces, are gradually being weeded out. The fixing., of ti,. retiring age and the gradual prooess of .an ^inexorable seniority law are responsible for this. It, is also a matter ear congratulation, however, that, a Minister for Defence has been found who re fuses to be bound by that seniority law, but when an important post falls vacar.t fills it with the best man available. It has been the failure to do this which has been responsible for so . much of the faulty organisation of the forces. Ollicers, whose only claim to military distinction was that they looked well in uni form, held important- positions, and were re sponsible for the chief phases of organisation. Naturally they failed. Nothing else could have "been expected. That their failure .was not marked by calamitous consequences was due entirely to the loyalty and energy of junior oifiee...

Prattle About People. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

Prattle J!bout People. The portrait of Mr. ,"\Iunro-Fcrg;ison, M.P., 'G-overnor - General designate, published in the "Argus" last week, was gone rail v mibtaken for that of Premier Watt, if said portrait is a speaking likeness, one or the other of these two great men will have to wear a distin guishing badge. Perhaps Mr. Watt will prevail upon the Governor-General to wear a goatee. Earl Grey's public engagements in Melbourne have suggested a Shaftsbury element in his character ; he has been to schools, and charit able institutions, and boys' farms, and general improvement societies. He even chose a motor Urive round Salvation Army iioirr.es in prcler mce to Colonel Wanliss's mimic battle at Lily dale, where the Earl's company would have in cluded Lord Denman "and General Hamilton. But interest in social work, though intense, is bal anced by general interests. Earl Grey is get ting past the active outdoor sport age ; but he do3S a great deal of riding, and likes shooting.

Photo Focus. MERCURIC IODIDE INTENSIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

Photo Tocus. By *Lcn«." MERCURIC IODIDE INTENSIFICATION.. The difficulty about using the ordinary mercuric chloride intensifier is that odp cannot , tell how far tho intensification has proceeded, since its effects are only visible after the image has been blackened : moreover, when one attempts with it to carry out any intensification short of the complete action rhcht through, the result is apt to be irregular. By the use of mercuric iodide as the intensifier these drawbacks may be avoided. It is' a singlo solution by which the growth of density can be watched and stopped at any point desired. The intensifier is made by dissolving mercuric iodide i'i a solution of sodium sulphite. The iodide is a bright red salt, insoluble in water, but soluble in the solutions of quite a number of salts. Of those, Messrs. Lumiere showed, many years ago. that sodi'i'H sulphite was the best, and recommended the uso of a ten per cent, solution for that pur pose. As this was a ten per cent, solution ...

SOFTENING NEGATIVES FOR INTENSIFYING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

SOFTENING NEGATIVES FOR INTENSIFYING. With the lapse of time the gelatine coating con taining the image of a negative gets verj horny and r<jpellant ; and if an old negative lias to be intensified, it is found that it will not take the liquids in the way it did when first made. To remedy this, all that lias to be done is to allow it to soak for half an hour or so before intensi fying, in dilute hydrochloric acid. Abo it one dram of acid to four or live ounces of water is a cou venieut strength. If the plate is to oe intensifto.i with mercury, there is 110 need to wash out the acid—its a*>resence in the gelatine is beneficial rather than otherwise ; so that ihe negative can »io piatycl direct in the bichloride solution to bleaeh. If any other process is to be applied to it, a few minutes' washing under the tap should remove the acid sufficiently.

FRILLING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

FRILLING. Tc prevent frilling, it is necessary to recognise the conditions which lavour it. These may bo summarised as—(1) anything tending to attack or to soft en the gelatine of the film, and (2) anything tending to give it a physical strain or to weaken its connection with the glass. Both are freavient causes of the trouble, and for the moment are best considered separately. Under the first head we may put the use of chemicals which react injuriously on gelatine, such as—(1) caustic alkalies, (2) alkaline carbonates, f3) acids, (4) a variety of salts, of which those which most concern the photographer in the order of the power of their action are ammonium supho cyanide, sodium sulphide, and mercuric chloride •, (5) warm water, which softens the film, and, if warm enough, will dissolve it. To •muvnerate these is, to a great extent, to fore arm thf! photographer against them. The action of the chemicals is the more powerful the stronger the solution, and, to a less exlent, the long...

Sydney's Sorrow. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

Sydney's Sorrow. The butchers t are on strike in Sydney at the time of writing. The unions are' sudden and quick in quarrel, and sometimes just as prompt in calling their dog off, . so that the early morning chop may be leatorefl to the Sydney citizen's table by the time this sees print. Meanwhile, there is a great; scarcity of steaks in the land, and sausages are few and far be tween, while the sirloin and the lumpy leg of mutton are conspicuous by their absence from the evening feast. , It is a great time in Syd ney for the rabbit-o and the fishm'ongcr, and the vegetarian wears the beatific expression of a wowser who has discovered a new sin. We hear 'of lively possibilities of the butchers' strike extending to Melbourne, and it behoves the trusty housewife to get in a large reserve of tinned and salt fish and other canned or pickled goods that will ■serve as a substitute for shoulder of mutton or good cow heel. The only comfort we can offer our elder sister in this hour of tribul...

The Unionist's Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 19 February 1914

The Unionist's Progress. Strikes and rumours of strikes. The problem facing England, America and Australia to-day is this of the big strike. It is a source of trial and tribulation in Confeinent.nl countries, too, more especially Germany and Prance; but the struggle between Capital and Labour is really most acuta in the two countries in which Labour has gained most—America and Australia. This fact does not tend to reassure English employers, who perceive, as we have done, that Labour only gains one advance in order to strengthen itself for another. The fact is that unionism uplifted the working man in Australia, strengthened him, gave iiim self confidence, and taught him his power. 1-Ie has employed that power ever sinco for fur ther advantages, and at length his desire has waxed till nothing short of sole possession will satisfy him. The teachings of Socialism have converted the union labourer from a toiler who sought only the highest wages his employers were to be coerced into giv...
