To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate" [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 23 August 1924

To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." Sir, —I heartily agree with you in your article upon Sunday sport. It         is indeed stimulating to know that the press can be so broad-minded   upon a prominent public question.   But, alas for the welfere of the com-   munity lineout of that standing.       Your correspondent, Mr. Tamagno,     has doubtlessly allowed his profes-     sional instincts to overrule his sense   of judgement and fitness of things, for     here's hopelessly wrong in his state-   ment re "youths and maidens having   time for recreation almost any day in the week." In this business-like age youths and maidens have their busi- ness to attend to with monotonous       regularity; but the phr...

PLEA FOR A BETTER SUNDAY Sane Sabbath System Sought [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 23 August 1924

PLEA FOR A BETTER SUNDAY Sane Sabbath System Sought The correspondents who wrote on this subject last week must be congratulated upon the tolerant tone of their epistles, and our desire and aim will be to main tain that tone. Controversy at times leads many enthusiastic writers to display inordinate re liance upon their own judgment and the stability and finality of the systems they espouse, but he that exalteth himself may be humbled, he that calleth his op ponent a fool may be cast into the right-of-way. Hence, we must ever bear in mind the advice of Polonius, "Beware of en trance to a quarrel." However, man is gregarious by nature, and therefore desirous of making converts, though it should be claimed that converts, like poets, are born not made, destined to change their views in the efful , gence of time. Some explanation is necessary at the outset in re gard to our misunderstanding of R.H.H.'s desire to " studiously avoid raising the religious aspect of Sunday sport." But if Su...

ST. ALBANS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 23 August 1924

ST. ALBANS For the first time for many years the Oaklands Hounds met at St. Al- bans railway station on Saturday last when ideal hunting weather prevailed. There was a run of about six miles over some high stone walls and stiff post and rail fences. The "throw-off" was at the station   then over a stone wall into J. Lewis', then into J. McKechie's and across Harrington Lane into another pad- dock where hounds swung to the right and crossed Boundary round in- to Bond Bros.' Turning again to the right they crossed some more stone walls and then a high "single railer " into Anderson's. The hounds then swung south again into a lane and through the railway crossing into Sassella Bros paddock and turning west they jumped some more stone walls they headed north across the same lane into Stevens', then through Opie's Estate into King's and the Quarry paddock when the run ended. Following is a list of riders and names of their mounts :- The Master, Mr. W. C. Knight (Sherwood) Th...

SUNSHINE STREET NAMES [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 23 August 1924

SUNSHINE STREET NAMES Sir,-Referring to the names of the streets in your issue of the 16th inst., I also think that it is time for the authorities to re name the streets, before the dis trict becomes more populated. The streets are becoming confus- ing to tradespeople and carriers alike. There are far too many streets carrying the same name;   also on the other hand some streets carrying too many names. Here are just a few of the streets :--Raleigh street (2), Rose-street (3), George street (3). There are each two streets carrying the following names:-   Thompson, Queen, Suffolk, John, Studley, Lyons, Elizabeth and Lord. T'he two Lord streets run parallel with one another, not 300 feet apart. There are also some streets carrying two or three names :-Church Street, Little Church Street or North Road (3) ; Darnley or Dudley   (2), Clarendon, Sanson sts (2). Maidstone and Braybrook are the districts most saddled with these duplications. Derby and ...

Concentrated Energy [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 30 August 1924

Concentrated Energy (By L.B.) While recently inspeccting a collec tion of Australian-made farm imple mients we were. very much impressed with a small farm engine nianufac Lured by our largest implement works. This is a sturdy little horizontal 2 h.p. engine, known to its associates as the "Sundex," and from a mechanical point of view reflects great credit on its manufacturer, and gives wonderful satisfaction to its user. Though rated and sold as capable of developing 2 brake horse power the particular on gine we noticed was doing this work as a continuous load, a fea:t which is not usually extcected of an internal combustion engine. For the ordinaryi far meir, and espe cially the dairy farmer, this engine certainly stands alone. Ow\ing to its design, the variation in speed has beon reduced to a 'minimuni, the go vernor is extremely sensitive, a.nd can he adjusted to the sliighte:? variation whilst the engine is running,. making it exceptionally adaptable for . eparaitor driving.

St. Albans. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 30 August 1924

St. Albans. A successful and enjoyable novelty .night and (ldance was held in the Mle chanics' Hall last Saturday night. Miss F. Macrae and Mr. C. Curtain won a waltzing competition, while Miss G. McKecknie and Mr. Chapman and Miss J. and ?Mr. N. McKccknie were the winners of chocolate and lucky spot dances respectively. The proceeds were for the jumble sale at the forthcoming school bazaar. St. Albans residents have just cause to .again complain o.1 the shocking _state of roads and footpaths during the last few clays. Residents having the mnisfOrtune to use the boundary road between King's and Stevens' places had to crawl along a stone wall, which was in places covered with water, but women and children knew better .by previous ex perience than to try and negotiate such a hazardous trip, so they stopped at home, and missed their work or school as the case may be. The water also rose above tYe footbridge at Rit chie's, while the state of the roads for vehicular traffic from Monday -...

To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 30 August 1924

To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." Sir,-As a regular reader of your paper I have been interested in the aiscussions under the above heading. - I had no intention of entering the ildkI as a controversialist, but on rcad ing the letter signed "Hugo Bucking halil" I felt that a few. words of cor rection might not be amiss. I have read carefully Mr. Bucking laln's letter, and I fail to find anything therein that calls for reply, except at one point. In the main, his contribu tion has the doubtful distinction of being devoid of logic, argument or conviction (except, of course, that one recognises that he expresses his own conviction). The point I wish to challenge is that in which Mr. Buckingham refers to Mr. Tamagno's letter, and says 'his occupation or employment is so slight that he has heaps of time to practise his golf, if so inclined." Your correspondent says he has "de Veloped the habit of constant study," yet, sir, such a statement as that which I have just quoted would scar cely...

HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 30 August 1924

HOME GARDENING. By "Heather Jock." The time is now opportune to over haul pot plants generally. Pot plants, as a rule, are not gross feeders, but most of them benefit decidedly from a general overhaul and repotting at this season of the year. In the case of some plants, such as pelargoniums, hydrangeas and begonias, it is advl"s able to increase the size of the pot, but in other cases, such as aspidis tras, palms and some of the fern family, it is inudvisable to use oversize piots. In the first place see that the tots are thoroughly clean and sweet. If they have never been used they will he all right, but if th'" are pots which have been used, they should frst be scrubbed in water with a hard-haired scrubbing brush, then put into the cop per and boiled with some charcoal, soda and washing ammonia. Then set them out in the sun, and give them a week's good sun lath. The next Iro cess is to procure the .necessary ma terial. Some clean broken crocks, some charcoal. or some coke breeze, ...

To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate" [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 30 August 1924

'The Editor "Sitinshiie Advocate." Sir,--lY re?son foi* entering this controversy was to register a protest against the inevitable increase of Sun day labour (a fact which. you have admitted) consequent upon the general adoption of your idea of "a better Surnday." I have kept to that issue, but so far, except for your reference to night work, which is beside the point at issue, you have advanced no facts to show that an extension of. Sun day labour is not against the best in terests of the community. You ;ais the point that apart from the religious uspect the question of Sunday snort has no significance. I submit that the question is an industrial one, and being such has a tremendous significance. I still maintain that no section has, or should have, any right to take away from another section its day of sus pendced labour and rest. When you satisfy your readers in that particular direction you will be in 'a position to advance against the solid phalanx of religious thought and sent...

A SUNDAY REJUVENATED Is Sorrowful Sabbath Doomed To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." Sir,--I have not come into this con- troversy "blindly," as your metaphori cal language kindly suggests. My eyes are wide open, otherwise I would not have seen what you innocently and courteously began-"Should youth frolic or spend its Sabbath fasting?" The sound of the question implied that all Sunshine's youth are doomed to a smileless, laughless, monotonou: time on Sundays, and are to be pitied, I entered my emphatic protest, sir, *against your thoughtless implication, I now know of many parents who take great exception to your statement. They are, of course, wondering whose youth you mean. Really, sir, we Protestant Christians (do not (I cannot speak on behalf of Catholic Christians) require the pres". to inform us as to what we ougi't to,? do regarding Sunday sport any more (and I speak respectfully) than you need our advice how you should con. duct your press.
