Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

Public Notice. WE DO NOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS. Treating a tooth that has to be filled is an operation demanding great care and patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will abscess and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time. Until we are absolutely certain that the cavity is "right," we do not begin filling. Then our expert knowledge operates. That is the reason why a Coventry Filling never gives trouble —never falls out—and lasts as long as the tooth itself. Let us Examine Your Teeth—it will certainly Pay You. C. W.

Enlistment and Employment It is gratifying to find that many of thi: employers oi Victoria are rising to the highest standard of patriotism by their treatment of employees who are volunteering for service with our expeditionary forces.

Ladies' Column. A Forecast for Spring. Tussore Again Popular. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

Ladies' Column. A Forecast for Spring. (By Rosalmul). Tussore Again Populnr. Many leading modistes anticipate an increased popularity for tussore, and much may he said in favor of this useful material. Not the least of its good points is its eminent suitability to the present modes, especially when employed in the heavier weights. For the full, wide skirts and the short, flared coatees decreed by present day fashion look their best when made in a material with a decided firmness of texture, such as characterises the better grades of this ^ilk. Then again, the washing and wearing qualities of a good tussore silk make a decided appeal to my sense of economy during these times of stress. I always look upon tussore silk as the coating serge of summer wear. And just as the wardrobe of a well-dressed man should al ways contain a navy serge suit, should the summer outfit of q woman he incomplete without a costume or coat of tussore silk. I have seen some truly charming garments developed f...

PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

procrastination. You are merely storing sorrow for tho future, sages say, If you put off till to-morrow things which should bo done to-day. When there Is a job un pleasant that it's up to me to do, I attack it in the present, give a whoop and push it through; then my mind Is free from troubles, and I sit before tho fire stirring porridge, blowing bub bios, or a-whanging at my lyre. If I said "There is no. hurry—that old job will do next week," there would be a constant worry making my old brain pan creak. For a man knows no en joyment resting at tho close of day, if he knows that some employment is neglected in that way. There is nothing more consoling at the setting of tho sun, when tho evening bolls are tolling, than the sense of duty done. And the solace cometh never to tho mm of backbone weak who postpones all sane endeavor till the middle of next weok. Let us then be up and doing, with a heart for any fate, as tho poet said, whon shooing agents from his gardon gate. Let us shak...

SERMONS IN EPIGRAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

SERMONS IN EPIGRAMS. If I were a devil I would rather live In a good, decent hog than In lots of men. The man' who lives for himself alono wilt be the sole mourner at his own funeral. There's no better anchorage on God's earth, young fellow, than your mother's apron-strings. Hugging and kissing a poodle dog Is mighty small business compared fo moulding the life of a child. When your heart is breaking you don't want the dancing master or sa loon keeper, you want the preacher. Going to church doesn't make a man a Christian any more than going to a garage makes him an automobilo. What the Church needs is not a larger membership, a new carpet, or a bigger organ, but more men who know how to pray. Just think when at last they put the clods on your coiHn and your wife and children go home, if all they remember are your curses and blows. ■ It's easy for you to sit in the cush ioned pew in church and sing Rescue the Perishing, and never stretch forth a hand to do it. • Tho practice of "make...

LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, England. June 19. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, England. June 19. This is the-month of roses—flaming June. England has never known, in my time at least, a more perfect June or more ideal weather. The country side just now shows itself in its best and most beautiful aspect As for the roses I cannot attempt to give any description of them. This Is one of the years when blight seems large ly absent, when the lankiest and most neglected trees are a mass of" blos som. ami when well-tended rose gar dens are feasts of color and of beauty, At the week-end I spent an afternoon walking in the country. 1 wanted to stop before nearly every suburban house and villager's cottage. Roses of every kind were in full flower, climbing roses with myriad tiny blooms, beautiful Gloire de Dijon standards towering in their beds like flowering mountains, dwarf bushes where the green could scarcely be seen for the blossom. Other flowers are flourishing in the same fashion. The lupins this year seem more free flowering...

Potatoes Now Glut Markets in Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

Potatoes Now Glut Markets in Germany. According to the Taglictaer Runds chau, potatoes are now so cheap and plentiful In Germany that it is feared they will rot in the various markets. Up to a month ago potatoes were scarce and high in price, and this was the case since the beginning of the year." However, to obviate this, every, available inch of ground in Ger many has been tilled and planted with potatoes, tomatoes, beans, peas and other vegetables. In fact, in cities and towns the flower pots and boxes which have In other summers held roses and geraniums now are utilised for growing vegetables. The weather ' has been warm, with plenty of rain, and the crops have shown good re sults. Consequently the markets have | receive! more potatoes than they can [possibly handle and high prices have collapsed.— -New York "Herald/ June |27.

SINKING TO RAGTIME SAILORS DANCE "BUNNY HUG" AS IRRESISTIBLE GOES DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

SINKING TO RAGTIME SAILORS DANCE "BUNNY HUG" AS IRRESISTIBLE GOES DOWN. Jack Tar's unconquerable spirit Is splenaidly illustrated by a corporal of Marines in his description of the sink ing of H.M.S. Irresistible in the Dar danelles:— ■ We came to the Dardanelles and commenced bombarding Sedd-el-Bahr along with the French and English Fleets. Two days aftor we landed at Sedd-el-Bahr and Kuin Kale, de stroying <0 guns at both places. Later we all made a combined attack upon Chanak and the accompanying forts in the Narrows. It must have been awful for the Turks in those forts, what with the Queen Elizabeth and other battleships dropping shells amongst them. We, unfortunately, struck a mine and began to sink, which the Turks could see, and they peppered our poor old ship with shells as we'were going down. Everything went off grand, and the amusing sight was to see all hands blowing up their swimming collars, and aft and on the quarter-deck the boys were dancing the "Bunny Hug...

HER BIRTHDAY STORY DADDY'S TALE OF HEROISM FOR HIS LITTLE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

HER BIRTHDAY STORY DADDY'S TALE OF HEROISM FOR HIS-J-ITTLE GIRL. Writing from the front to an eight yoar-old daughter, an officer pays splendid tribute to one of his ser geants. He says: — Daddy cannot 6end you anything for your birthday. He is too far away from shops. He will try and tell you a story of one of his men which will make you proud of the man. Ho was in charge of two of daddy's guns in a trench, when all of a sudden the Ger mans put some of their poison over him. He stayed with his guns as long as he could and. then had to crawl Uway into a road. When ho was pick ed up by a motor-car the next day he was nearly dying. Ho was put into a hospital, and today daddy saw him, but, poor man, ho could hardly talk. But he was very worried, and seemed so glad to see daddy. I talked to him for a long time, and at last he man aged to say: "Get the guns back. One is in action In the communicating trench and one at the back. Tell lieu tenant Cook; he will explain to you."

ROUMANIA IS READY _ i FRONTIER DEFENCES HAVE BEEN STRENGTHENED. HER ENTRY INTO CONFLICT J EXPECTED ANY HOUR. Roumanla's entry Into the conflict is considered Just as certain as Italy's was. Every hour that passes brings the decisive moment nearer and It is understood It may now be only a mat ter of days when she will glvo the word to her military commanders. They, as well as many of her states men, have been fretting with lmpa: tterice and if it depended on them would hove taken the plunge long ago, but Roumanla has had to proceed carefully and the counsels of prudence have prevailed. For Roumanla is vulnerable. There is a tender spot in her bucklor and she has had to eetfiblish a line of de fence work of which the outside world has not heard. Her oil and anthra cite fields have had to be protected. Roumanla is the Pennsylvania of Europe. Her petroleum makes the finest illuminating oil produced in Europe, the finest in the world, the Roumanians assert. Her anthracite coal ranks with...
