Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 11, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta satuhday, august 11, IVVt the LTmronmoK daily herald paoen1nk A Poet From The Railway Mr. C. J. Dennis and THE!'dangers of tho Mediterranean | rysuo between Australia and England havo Induced a large number of Australians to pass through Canada, wlio otherwise might never have known tbl3 country, and have brought Australia Into closer sympathy with the Dominion than ever before. Canadians also have learned to appreciate tho An-zacfl, and tho Increasing trade between these two Junior partners of the,British Empire, as shown In the record traffic of the Canadian Australasian service, is one of the bright Bides of this war. There are many, points of common touch-both aro vast countries anxious for greater population and both are on tho whole Btlll mainly agricultural. Tho comparative absence of cabled news from Australia in Canadian papers Is, however, a handicap against the knowledge of each other's social problems and progress, and Australian authors nrp as little known In Canada as Canadian writers are In tho Antipodes.. One poet of Australia Is. however, milking headwuy hero and deserves his home in the bush at Tooinngi to bo even better Known-eo vivid u picture docs he give of the Australian larrikin In the terse vernacular of Adelaide, "Doreen and the Sentimental Bloke," which In its own country has run Into the hundred thousands and has been put Into n pocket edition for the-.soldiers In the trenches, threaten* to rival even Hobert Service (who like himself owes much to Kipling) In the affections of the Canadian reader, and though "The Moods of Ginger Mick," which haa made a tremendous hit in Australia, h,as not yet been published in this country,; stray copies pass from hand to hand and are greatly treasured. Ginger Mick Is a peddler of rabbits who volunteers for the front and dies like a hero at Galll-poli. Dennis' "Back-block Ballads," descriptive of the people of the Australian busb and the settled country districts, are,classics. Dennis wrote "Doreen" In the bush at Toolangl, Victoria, in a log cabin which he built himself after he had grown tired of being a Government official and a newspaper editor.

Nl If you are not riding on DOMINION TIRES, you will realize your mistake with the first set of "NOBBY TREADS" or "CHAIN TREADS" that you put on the car. JIT "NOBBY TREADS" are the heroes of the highway; as nearly ' nl puncture-proof as any tire can be; 10095 motoring ease, pleasure and economy. Costing more to begin with, they give a net service in mileage and freedom from tire troubles, that make these "Aristocrats of the Road" the most economical on any car. JIT One tire isn't as good at another. DOMINION "CHAIN TREADS" Nl are not as good as "NOBBY TREADS"-not as heavy; probably won't give the mileage; but then they don't cost as much. In their price-class, however, there is nothing to touch them for service.

J. Dennis, who as a man handy with the axe and saw was able afterwards to draw pay as a carpenter.' His father was a retired sea captain and a hotclkeepcr with small appreciation of poetry. At one of the rock!-' est periods of his career the post wired the publican "Send ten pounds, going Broken Hill," to which his father replied "Sending nothing, go to. Hell." In spite of this lack ot sympathy, Dennis became editor ot the "Adelaide Critic," which he left to establish the "Gadfly," a saucy, paper on the lines of New York) "Life." This paper was once accused; by a correspondent of sectarian bias. Dennis replied that the paper was controlled by an Anglican, a Romau Catholic, a Weslyan Methodist and an Atheist, and gave It as his opinion 'that the Atheist was "the most religious man ot the loU" A f.rfliroe Of noiSc thai Is frequently overlooked i:i tho earn covering the timing gears.

FACTORY EFFICIENCY , , We usee) to buy many Mitchell Darts, and make) some In a slow: and costly way. Then we employed John W,. Bate, the famous, efficiency expert. We gave vhlm carta blanehe to build and equip a model auto* mobile plant.. . The result has been to cut our factory ,e*et In two. , We build nearly the whole car, chassis and body, under efficiency method*. The result is that Mitchells, de- ' spite all their extras, are amazingly low In price. 'Many makers, in these respects have not yet changed aa we have. On that account the Mitchell has lately multiplied in popu- larity. For the first six months of the present fiscal year our-eales increase was 160 per cent. Go and inspect the hundred extra values which distinguish Mitchell cars. See at your dialer's the list of great engineers who bought the Mitchell for their own use. tee the endurance records amounting to 40 years of ordinary service. The result, we believe, will vastly changs your own ideas of a fine car.
