THE SCOT AS BAYONET FIGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

THE SCOT AS BAYONET FIGHTER. Mr. Josph W. Grigg, an American correspondent at British Headquar ters in France, describing a visit to a training camp 'behind the ,.front, says :-The bayonet drill of .a Scot tish sergeant, who was fresh from the trenches and .giving a large body-. of. men instruction;: was as skilful as a swordsman. This sergeant had--been through bayonet fighting, and four times had been mentioned for valour on the field of action. He was as alert as a tiger and as strong. Some of the fiercest bayonet work of the war has been done by the Scottish troops, and there -is the feeling in all regiments of the British Army that the Germans can be bested with the bayonet. One of the most interesting stories which I heard about Prus sian pride was related to me by *a British colonel, says Mr. Grigg. He said that a Prussian officer had been captured, and, preparatory to his be ing sent to a regular camp with oth ers, was invited to share the mess quarters .with several British...

JAPANESE KnOTS. WHERE THEY DO WITHOUT BUTTONS. The Japanese have no use for 'but tons, buckles, or hooks and eyes. Cord serves every purpose of fasten ting, and furnishes artistic possibili ties' seemingly without end. The . Japanese have hmndreds . of knots, made necessary. by the. orna mental use of cord. Some are as old as the time when Hiist6ry was record ed by a series, of knots, just as it was in China'and Peus before writing was invented. There are dozens of knots in common and ceremonih! usage, and these every child can -tie. In one educational museum of Ja -pan :is` a. great' ?fra?e of the most beautiful knots, tied in silken and gold thread.

BOASTFUL STORY OF GERMAN AIRMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

BOASTFUL STORY OF GERMAN AIRMAN. A participant in an aeroplane raid on London gives a graphic story of the expedition. After describing the preparations, which included a short address by the commander, ending "I commend you to God," he pro ceeds (according to the "Daily Tele graph" summary) : "At ten"' o'clock the commander shoots from his machine a rocket, which is a sign for the start. Hu goes up first, then all the big, well loaded birds rise and take their course towards London. The Belgian coast is soon reached. The .first shots of the anti-aircraft guns reach our height, but don't disturb us. The firing having been passed, our squa:d ron closes up. On the left is the Thames, whose bends we follow care fully on the map. Closely we ap proach our objective. "I look with some anxiety at the cloud-bank lying ahead. Curse it we are going to have bad luck again this time. Five minutes pass. I look around for my comrades. They are all there, in close phalanx. Then, at last, behind th...

Kinglake Bush Fires. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

Kinglake Bush Fires. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) Bush fires are still going strong at Kinglake. A great deal of damage has been done and more is likely. S. Pearson, Maloney and many others are still in danger. Fire fighters have in many cases done excellent work, but in some cases it was not possible to get near the fire. All through Kinglake West the people suffered some damage to fencing, &c. Pollard, Combes, O'Brien, Junor, Regan, Roney, Spioule, Langmed and others were in great danger of serious loss, but all escaped with minor damage. Browne's dwelling house, P.O. and store caught fire, but with plenty of water available, it was soon put out by Mrs Browne, there being many other fire fighters handy. All the mill hands knocked off to assist, but in a very short time the mill was surrounded, and great damage done to bridges, tram lines, men's huts, &c. It is estimated that about £600 worth is damaged or destroyed. Messrs Collins, Lorenz, Ramsay, Burton, and many other...

Proposed Line to Kinglake [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 March 1923

Proposed Line to Kinglake Cr, Hewitt, at the Eltham council meetirig.' on Monday," suggested that the councillors go to Hurstbridge in the afternoon to welcome the Railways Standi?ig Co mmittee, who would be taking evidence in connection. with the Kinglake railway line The coun cillors need not mention routes. Cr Shallard said it would }mean a big thing if the railway were extended. It seems that the best country is not being tapped while the line stops at Hurstbridge. The extension should pay in a very short time. ' he President agreed that the shire should welcome, the Standing' Com mittee, as the railway will be a benefit to the district. Cr Hubbard said the councillors should meet them. Many people wanted to see the line go on to Yea not stop at Kinglake. On the motion of Crs Hubbard- and Andrew, it was decided that'the coun. cil adjourn in the.afternoon to receive the Railway Standing Comnmittee" at Hurstbridge.

Panton Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 March 1923

Panton Hill. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) A oceeting of residents interested in erect ing a memruorial i:ross to the sacred memory of the district's fallen in the great war was held in the Gibson Memorial Hall on Wed nesday evening, February 2S. The Rev. E. S. Chase presided. The secretary (Mr C. Harris) announced that the appeal had realised £17 14s; further promised donations would probably raise the amount to over £20. This, he thought. wss a very poor response for a place like Panton Hill. From what he had heard, the reasonable inference could be drawu that a majority of the people did not favour the selec:ed site: fcr the memorial. The non attendance of any at mueetings but peopie interested in the chlrcll corroborated this view. He advised that it now he regarded as a church tiatter, *and that a com mittee be formed with the view of enlarging the fund by holding . .-eres of entertain ments. This was decided upon, and the following were elected to the committee :--\lesdanes Chase, C...

QUEENSTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 March 1923

SQUEENSTOWJN. There was a very good attendance. Samples of district produce were shown by Messrs Nink and Mueller. Herbert Hewitt, quoting figures, said that places in contact with the railway were going ahead by leaps and bounds, whereas those places distant from the line only showed a slight increase in population. If the line is extended the Government would benefit by the in creased values of properties. A huge acreage in the Queenstown and King lake districts was still in possession of the Crown. O. Mueller complained of the way fruit was handled on the railways, and compliniented the'member for the'dis trict for the keen interest he had taken in making personal complaints on the spot when the fruit was being handled. If the railway went through that dis trict it was on the cards that land would be cut up for closer settlement. The fruit grown along the ranges was equal to anything in the world. F. W. Nink said there wvere im mense quantities of timber in the ,for: ests of Quee...

STRATHEWEN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 March 1923

STRATHEWEN. There was a large attendance, and Mr Brain said they did not advocate a route. The soil there would compare favorably with any soil in the State for apples, while the Kinglake soil was as good as Tasmanian. He complinien ted Mr Everard on his consistent ad vocacy of open-air markets, which would relieve gluts and be a boon to producers and consumers. One of the reasons why production was retarded was owing to lack of railway communi cation. E. Skardon pointed to the growth of .Hurstbridge since the line was made, and said if it were extended the whole district would benefit: At present the. young people had to leave the pure air of the country for "he vitiated atmos phere of the city. John M'ann stated that if the railway went by Rushy Flat it would serve Strathewen as well as Queenstown ; he advocated the extension to Yea, and did not think there would be any engi neering difficulties.
