    China painter.

    N.B. : A few times the spelling of the surname is Mens - mostly in the period of WWII.

    Eugene Muriel Miller was born in Burra Burra, South Australia in 1887. She was the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Miller - (Augustus William Miller & Hannah). At the time of her father's death these are the family details: "MILLER.— On August 24. 1934, at his residence, Garrett-road. Bayswater, Agustus William, the dearly loved husband of Hannah Miller, fond father of Clarice (Mrs. Charles Lemon, North Perth), Eugene (Mrs. Mens, Perth), John (Perth), Addie (Mrs. A. T. Haining, Northam), Madge (Mrs. C. Byfield, Bayswater), Dick (Bayswater), Doris (Bayswater), Esme (Mrs. H. Combet, Victoria Park) and R. M. (South. Perth); aged 80 years."

    MILLER.--On May 3, 1944, at her residence. 64 Garrett-road, Bayswater. Hannah. widow of the late Augustus William Miller, fond mother of Clarice (Mrs C. Lemon). Eugenie (Mrs H. Menz). John, Addie (Mrs A. Haining), Madge (Mrs M. Byfield), Dick, Esme (Mrs H. Combs), Doris and Bert; aged 88 years."
    Her elder sisters became Mrs. A. Haining and Mrs. F. Thomas of Mt. Lawley. ???

    In March 1900 the Miller family moved from the Burra and went to West Australia. They have two addresses there : one earlier in Boulder, West Australia at 94 Vivian-street and another later c. 1915 in Perth at 6 Garrett-road Bayswater."

    "Menz commenced painting c.1918 and learnt her china painting from the Misses Creeth. She exhibited china painting with the West Australian Society of Arts in 1935." (https://www.daao.org.au/bio/eugene-muriel-menz/)

    China painter was born in Burra Burra South Australia in 1887 and moved to Boulder after her marriage. The couple then moved to Perth where they lived in Bayswater, Mt Lawley and Attadale. Eugene was taught by J. W. R. Linton, A. B. Webb and Mr Rowbotham at Perth Technical School. She commenced painting c.1918 and learnt her china painting from the Misses Creeth. She exhibited china painting with the West Australian Society of Arts in 1935. Joined the Voluntary Aid Detachment during World War I. At some later stage she attended art school in North London. She visited United States of America on a regular basis from 1961 to learn china painting from an expert in depicting roses, Sony Flourished.(sic)".(https://trove.nla.gov.au/people/1485967?c=people)

    This was not Sony Flourished it was actually Sonie Ames. Another error here is the date of her arrival in Boulder. Her marriage was in 1911 and by that stage she had been in Boulder for eleven years. The family having left Burra in March 1900.

    She was the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A., W. Miller of Boulder City, W.A. at the time of her wedding in 1911.
    Her elder sisters became Mrs. A. Haining and Mrs. F. Thomas of Mt. Lawley.

    She married in August, 1911. She and Birt lived at Berthold Holm, Hopkins-street, Boulder.

    In 1912 she gave birth to a daughter Vivienne Lucielle Rae (known as Rae):

    "BIRTHS. MENZ.— On December 2nd, at Berthold Holm, Hopkins-street, Boulder, the wife of Mr. H. B. Menz — a daughter."

    In January 1913 : "By Sunday's express Mrs. H. B. Menz, of Boulder, is leaving, and sails by the R.M.S.. Marmora on Tuesday for Adelaide, where she and her little daughter intend spending a long holiday in Adelaide and Kersbrook, with baby's grand parents."

    In 1915 a major incident in her life when her husband died:

    Captain Henry Berthold MENZ, 28th Battalion, AIF. Born Adelaide South, SA. Married; Master plumber, of 'Berthold Holm', Hopkins Street, Boulder City, Western Australia. Next of kin: Wife; Mrs Eugene Muriel Menz, of 94 Vivian Street, Boulder / Garrett Road, Bayswater, Western Australia. Died of other causes (enteric fever) in Egypt, on 27 November 1915, aged 28. Grave: Chatby Military cemetery.

    At his death Captain Menz left a widow and infant daughter. Henry Berthold Menz, late of Boulder, left an estate to Eugene Muriel Menz of £861 11s 6d. Captain Menz had been born on June 15, 1887.

    In 1916 she was living at 6 Garratt road, Bayswater, Perth.

    In 1933 it seems she was living at Mt Lawley: "Mrs. Menz, of Mt. Lawley, entertained about 45 guests last Saturday at Ferguson Hall, in honour of the 21st birthday of her daughter, Miss Rae Menz. The hostess received the guests wearing a frock of black georgette and lace, with a little coatee, and her daughter chose a frock of cream georgette and lace. Dancing was the form of entertainment chosen. Supper was served on the stage on tables decorated with red carnations and fern. Mrs. A. W. Miller (grandmother of the guest of honour) lit the 21 candles on the birthday cake, and Mr. C. Chivers proposed Miss Menz's health."
    In May 1940 she was in London: "Mrs. E. Menz is studying art in London, while Miss Rae Menz is doing a mannequin course there."

    In September 1940 she returned to Perth with her daughter Rae.
    "ARRIVED home during the week, Mrs. E. Menz and her daughter Rae. They returned from England via America, and spent a short while in Sydney and Melbourne en route to Perth."
    "MRS. E. M. Menz and Miss Rae Menz, who returned to Perth on Wednesday after a visit to England, are the guests of Mrs. E. Byfield, at 5 Grosvenor-road, Bayswater, until they take a flat in Perth."
    "Mrs. E. Mens and her daughter Rae returned recently to Sydney via America from England, where they had spent about 18 months. They stayed in Melbourne for some days and are expected to arrive by the Westland express today."

    In August 1943 her daughter Rae was married. The marriage of Rae. only daughter of Mrs E. Menz, 191 Adelaide-terrace. Perth, to Sgt H. Stickland (AIP) will take place at Perth College Chapel, Lawley-crescent, Mt Lawley. on Monday. August 16, at 6 pm."

    In August/September 1945 she left Perth and spent nine months studying at the Melbourne and Adelaide Schools of Art. “While in the Eastern States, Mrs. Menz attended a number of exhibitions of china painting, of which she has made a special study.
    In 1946 she was living at Rose Hill. 191 Adelaide-terrace, Perth.

    In 1946 she spoke about China Painting in the West Australian: "Adelaide is now the most lively art centre in Australia, in the opinion of Mrs. E. M. Mens of Perth, who returned by the Westland express on Saturday after spending nine months in the Eastern States furthering her art studies at schools in Victoria and South Australia. At present showing in the Adelaide Art Gallery was a collection of 40 modern paintings-known as the London group-imported for display throughout the Commonwealth. These were attracting great attention and each Sunday afternoon the principal of the School of Arts lectured to large crowds on various aspects of the pictures.
    Speaking of china painting--a branch of work in which Mrs. Mens is particularly interested--she said that Mrs. M. Venner, probably the foremost painter of china in Australia today, was a resident of Adelaide. Her work was done purely as a hobby, and was known, not only throughout Australia, but also in England and America. America, incidentally, was named by Mrs. Mens as the home of china painting; England concentrating more on pottery ware.
    On the whole deplorable work was't being put on to china, concluded Mrs. Menz. The influx of visitors to Australia throughout the war had created a great demand for china painted with native flora, with the result that work of a very poor standard had flooded the market."

    In 1951 she was living in Attadale. In May 1951 she went to Britain with both her sisters on the Otranto for a holiday and to study pottery. She spent seven months at the Hammersmith Art School, near Kensington. On her return she gave a newspaper interview :"Art is very much alive in England, Mrs. Menz said. Most of the young students had a decided leaning towards abstract art. "I feel quite sure they will never earn their living at it," Mrs. Menz said. "Some of the work is horrible to look at, but it is being encouraged by the teachers, who regard it as a means of self-expression." Even pottery was being produced in styles which were quite grotesque. Mrs. Menz said that her own taste was towards the more traditional styles, and during the course she had learnt the various phases of throwing, decorating and glazing pottery. She has brought back a modern., electric kiln, which will be invaluable in her future work."

    In "Changing Fortunes, the History of China Panting in South Australia" Avis Carol Smith makes reference to the importance of Eugene Muriel Menz and refers to her as Eugene (Jean) Menz and Jean Menz. On page 212 Smith says that Elsie Manning not only carried china and paints in her shop called Cynthia's in Corresloe but "knew the Western Australian china painters Kitty Drok, Amy Lakides and Eugene (Jean) Menz who were capable teachers and prepared to travel.
    Menz (1887-1981) was one of the first key figures instrumental in popularising the American style of china painting especially, of double pink roses, to Australian china painters."
    Smith mentions that in Western Australia Eugene studied under the Creeth sisters around 1918 and then with Flora Landells. She mentions that Eugene was able to travel to the West Coast of the USA in 1960 and again in 1961 to study under Sonie Ames. Ames had influenced the South Australian and the Western Australians through their reading of a magazine which often featured Sonie Ames' techniques: 'China Decorator'.
    Eugene was then asked by the South Australian China Painters Association to visit South Australia in 1965 to train their members in the flat brush techniques of Sonie Ames. The technique was an oil painting technique that enabled the painter to use a 'square shader' to create backgrounds on the china. Eugene sold some of her wares in Adelaide at that time too. It seems that Eugene had created great interest in china painting in South Australia during her visit and had given an American twist in the style of Sonie Ames. to the work which was created there after her visit.
    Sonie Ames (1900 – 1994) was born and raised in Provo, Utah, USA. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esd_MIQis7c).

    Eugene had gone to the USA in 1940 on her return from a trip to England.

    In an interview in 1946 we read: "America, incidentally, was named by Mrs. Mens as the home of china painting; England concentrating more on pottery ware. "

    THE LATE CAPTAIN MENZ.
    Mrs. Eugene Menz, of No. 6 Garratt road, Bayswater, has received letters from Lieut.-Colonel H. B Collett, commanding the 28th Battalion, and Chaplain the Ven. Archdeacon Collick, referring to the lamented death of her husband, Captain H. B. Menz. The deceased officer, who was particularly well known on the eastern
    goldfields was one of the most popular in the 28th Battalion, and held in high esteem for his fine soldiery qualities. As will be
    seen from Colonel Collett's letter, Captain Menz took a prominent part in the operations at the Dardanelles, and won the hearty commendation of the officer commanding the brigade of which his battalion formed a part.
    Lieut.-Colonel Collett, writing from Tel-el-Kebir, on January 25, says :-"Dear Mrs. Menz,-Your hnsband, Captain Menz, left us on his way to the hospital on October24 last, and it is only recently that we received the sad intelligence of his death.
    I am taking the first opportunity of writing to you to express on behalf of the officers and on my own behalf our very deepest sympathy in the great loss you have sustained. Our late comrade has a most efficient and capable officer, and did exceedingly valuable work during the campaign on the Peninsula.
    He organised and commanded the corps of snipers of the brigade, and was instrumental in inflicting severe loss on the enemy; in fact, the effect of the work of his men was so marked that along our front the Turks hardly dared to fire a shot during the hours of daylight.
    He also had charge of a Hotehkiss gun, which by its fire did a great amount of damage to the enemys works. The General Officer Commanding the 7th Brigade, in speaking to me of Captain Menz, congratulated the battalion on having him as an officer. As a brother officer and a comrade of your late husband had won our respect and esteem, and we join with you inmourning his loss. Once more assuring you of our very deepest sympathy, believe me, yours very sincerely, Hubert B. Collett
    Lieut.-Col, commanding 28th Battalion."'Archdeacon Collick wrote from No. 1 General Hospital, Heliopolis, on December 30:-"Dear Mrs. Menz,--I have just been informed of the death of your loving husband and my dear friend Bert. I am really most distressed at this terrible news. I know what an awful blow it will be to you. I have heard no particulars, except that they think he died of fever or pneumonia. I have seen none of his brother officers or men yet. Bert was one of the best fellows I ever knew in Western Aus-
    tralia, I always had the greatest respect and affection for him. Both as boy andman he was always brave, keen, and clean and always did his duty faithfully and well,whether as son or brother, husband or soldier. He leaves behind him a beautiful memory, and one you can always treasure with affection and pride. I saw him just before he left for the fnont, and I know what his brother officers and men thought of him; he was, they said, 'one of the best.'
    Losing your little son and now your hushand must, indeed, come as a terrible blow to you, but you must try and bear up, and be brave, even as you know he would wish you to be. A soldier's wife must be as brave and as true as her husband is and as he wishes her to be. You have my deepest sympathy, and also, I know, the
    sympathy of all who knew and respected your late husband. Convey my sympathyalso to his father and sisters. I know they too, will be terribly upset, at hisdeath. I pray God to comfort and keep you all.-Yours sincerely, E. M. Collick."

    1895 : DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST. Early on Saturday morning Mrs. Magdalena E. Menz, of Wakefield-street died at the age of 76. The deceased lady came to the colony in 1849 from Germany, shortly after her arrival was married to the late Mr. Johann Menz. In 1850 she started a small grocery business in Wakefield-street. In 1860 Mrs. Menz was left a widow with a young family. Subsequently the business which she had inaugurated was taken over by her sons, who are still conducting it. Mrs. Menz, who was very well known to German citizens, had been ill for about four months.

    CHINA PAINTING
    Adelaide is now the most lively art centre in Australia, in the opin ion of Mrs. E. M. Mens of Perth, who returned by the Westland ex press on Saturday after spending nine months in the Eastern States furthering her art studies at schools in Victoria and South Australia. At present showing in the Adelaide Art Gallery was a collection of 40 mod ern paintings-known as the London group-imported for display throughout the Commonwealth. These were attracting great attention and each Sunday afternoon the prin cipal of the School of Arts lectured to large crowds on various aspects of the pictures. Speaking of china painting--a branch of work in which Mrs. Mens is particularly interested--she said that Mrs. M. Venner, probably the foremost painter of china in Austra lia today, was a resident of Ade laide. Her work was done purely as a hobby, and was known, not only throughout Australia, but also in England and America. America, in cidentally, was named by Mrs. Mens as the home of china painting; Eng land concentrating more on pottery ware. On the whole deplorable work was'\ being put on to china, concluded Mrs. Menz. The influx of visitors to Australia throughout the war had created a great demand for china painted with native flora, with the result that work of a very poor standard had flooded the market.

MENZ managing director of W. Menz & Co. 19 years of age visited Britain and the Continent to study factory methods and organisation. Until 1911 he remained there and obtained practical experience in the manufacture of goods produced by his firm. Mr. Menz again visited these countries and America in 1926. He is an enthusias tic rower, and is captain of Adelaide Rowing Club. The business was established in 1850 by the late Mr. John Menz in the western portion of the property facing Wakefield street, which is incorporated in the present premises. At that time the staff amounted to three persons, the business being that of grocer and baker. After the death of the founder in 1855 his widow and two sons (Messrs. W. and A. H. Menz) conducted the business. In 1870 a company was formed. Machinery Installed The grocery department was later dis continued, and the manufacturing of bis cuits and confectionery begun. In 1894 a fire occurred, which destroyed the plant. but afterward machinery was installed which enabled goods to be manufactured under better conditions. The company continued to progress until in 1910 it became necessary to install plant for the manufacture of chocolates and these classes of confectionery. As the business steadily grew more and newer machinery was procured, and in 1921 that in the biscuit, chocolate, and confec tionery sections was replaced.

    Famous Menz Products Established for 80 Years. The firm of W. Menz & Co., Limited, was established in 1850 by the grand- father of the present directors. It is one of the oldest family concerns still existing in Adelaide, and whilst a limited company, the shares are held by the family. From, very small beginnings, the firm has worked up to its present position in the commercial world, and gradually a first-class plant has been assembled in the factory at Wakefield-street. The quality of the goods produced is of the highest standard, and the ob ject of the management is to give the best quality obtainable, combined with service to the community in general. Between 150 and 200 people are em- ployed, and many varieties of goods are produced. Menz Biscuits are a household word in South Australia, and the chocolates produced under the same name also bear comparison with any manufac- tured in Ausrtalia. It is perhaps not generally known to the public that the firm of Menz, Ltd., have a first-class chocolate plant, and the public gene- rally can further one ot the State's manufacturing businesses by demand ing Menz' products when, buying choco- lates. It is well known that much chocolate is imported into South Aus- tralia, but by supporting the above brands many of our unemployed would be absorbed in this industry.

    A.B.C. Thwarted In Its Attempt To Evict Terrace Tenants "The Sunday Times" Criticism Bears Fruit The Australian Broadcasting Commission will not be able to implement its rash action of ejecting tenants from Rosehill Flats, Adelaide-terrace, Perth. ? Following criticism in "The Sunday Times," the Postmaster-General (Senator Ashley) has given an assurance that no families will be evicted to make way for the transfer of the A.&.C. headquarters. This assurance, given to Sena- tor MacDonald in the Senate on Thursday, is the satisfactory se- quel to the exposure by "The Sun- day Times" »f the unreasonable attitude adopted by the A.B.C. In ordering a number of families, in- cluding soldiers' dependants, ti quit their living quarters so that the A.B.C. can be better housed. The right-of a number of Perth families to maintain a roof over their heads has, as it should, been given priority over the A.B.C.*s desire to expand at a time when the housing position is deplorable all ovér metropolitan Perth. Actually the A.B.C. ordered the premises to be vacated last year, but "The Sunday Times" was able to secure a reprieve for the ten- ants and the Soldiers* Dependants' Appeal took the matter, up with the Commonwealth officials acting for the Commission. Senator R. H. Nash was an- other one to register a protest against the proposed action, and the Postmaster-General has final- ly given way to weight of respon- sible public opinion. Therefore, much as the A.B.C. wishes to transfer its headquar- ters, it'will be unable to do so a' the expense of families who will be unable to find accommodatlor elsewhere. Doubtless the Commission is en- titled to more pretentious quit- ters than those now occupied, but it should choose à more propitious time to make the move than at present* when hundreds of people in Perth are search lng'for accom- modation.

    1916 : 'I have just given this instance,' he said, 'to show that those who say shooting doesn't pay nowadays are wrong.' The late Captain Menz, he added, a prominent member of the Boulder Rifle Club, was one of the most active members of this corps, and he thought it only fair to a brave man's memory to say the late captain had been a fine officer, and one who at a pinch performed gun as well as experts of either the work of placing a Hotchkiss engineer or artillery could have done it. He went on: 'I agree with what your chairman has said in reference to conscription. The moral effect of a declaration by the dominions, by Canada and by South Africa, supporting the prin ciples of conscription, would have an immense effect in this war I hope it will not be necessary to carry out conscription, but, if it is absolutely essential, Australia will not say 'No' when the call comes, when we are asked to furnish more men.' He concluded by wishing the Boulder Club every success. The clubs generally were doing ex cellent work.
