WITH THE EXPEDITIONARY FORCE. Following is an extract from n leller from one of the '* members ot llto First Expeditionary Forco : "Hero we are out ou the deep blue, which is-the very essence of caimncss. Didn't think the sea could ho so calm, hardly a ripple and no broken waves -hope it continues so. Didn't we away silently? Like the Arabs, folded our lents." We were very glad to at last leave camp, as it was becoming monotonous, arid we raised a cheer when we got the word to move. The trip so far lias been uneventful. Wo passed a French ship on Monday, and tho Gill and 7th bands played "The Marseillaise." When passing she camo quite closo, and, ot course, we gave a cheer. We had a long last look at good old Vic. loo, and soon were out on the ocean. Lovely woatlier continues, and in tho mornings wo appear to he steaming out of the Sim and make a beo line for it in the evening.

DOG LOVE FOR MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 December 1914
DOG LOVE FOR MAN. A dog looks up to mau us though bo wore a god, and it is pathetic when we think how many clog owners come far short of the Olympian stature, and of being worthy of that iunto idolatry. Yet man is the holder of creation's patent of nobility, to bo considered a little lower than the angels, and a dog is-only a dog, and can not emanci pate himself from his affiliation with tho beasts. A stick is nothing to a dog till a man has laid his baud upon it and thrown it for him to retrieve. Straightway that fragment of a dead branch be comes invested with all manner of de sirable attributes. It is something to be clung to till tho teeth break, if ne cessary, so that the way a dog "hangs on" has become a proverbial expres sion for tenacity. Thoro is nothing in the prospect of a walk all by himself to tempt a dog to roam abroad; but let a man nsk him if he wants to go for a walk, and no comfortable place by the ingtenook lias any temptations for him. Ho is at onco a springing t...
