At last we are In sight of laud I The strain and pitch and aide-roll, oin allt Its monotony, will soon be over (although, despite the heat, we have been tlcky to hare a northerly breeze). New Interests arise, and all things take on a blighter aspect. We talked of the probability of the end of the war, also of our destination. Eventually, lats in theafternoon, we arrived at Sues and anchored. Many flying machines hovered high over the harbour, like birds of prey. We learned that there is a great aviation camp close by the shore, where all the most difficult tests of flight were gone through by aviatora before going to the front. Next morning we were eager to land, and were soon off to our camp in the des ert- distance of 5a miles. Passing through the town of Suea, we immediately plunged into the desert. But it was not altogethor devoid of interest, for a road running almost parallel with the lines had a fair share of traffi...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 18 January 1918

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,--On reading the report, in your valuablo paper of the 11th inst., of the Eltham Shire Council, I was much surprised at Cr Taylor's remark that it was a dog in the manger cry with Mr Reardon, and reference to treatment I bad received from the last placo I had come from ; and judging from the opening remarks of Cr Hubbard, the natural ourollary would be that 1 had done something disreputable, which merited a threashing. Permit me to inform Cr Taylor the last place I came (from was Albert Park, where I was a property owner, and lived there for nine years snd always treated with best of respect, and also my wife, who worked with all the Councillors and their wives for charitable institutions, and holder of six Life Governorships' serti ficates for different hoopitals. Permit me to inform Cr Taylor, if he can prove that I have ever done, either at the last place or any other place, anything whatsoever daero. gotory to my position, let alone doing tha...

COULD TAKE HIS CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 18 January 1918

COULD TAKE HIS CHOICE. In the course of a cricket-match the other-8itid~a y afternoon-a rat-er- amusing incident was witneseed. One of the batsmen skied a ball be tween the wickets. Two of the field ers ran in to take the catch, when the batsman lost his head. Leaving his crease he ran forward, swung his bat, and, at the risk of cracking a couple of heads, made a furious slash at the descending ball. "How's that, umpire ?" was the confident appeal of the fielding side. "Out," was the reply. "What am I out for," demanded the bateman. "Weel," responded the umpire, gravely, 'ye're out firstly, for ob structing the field ; secondly, for hit ting the ball twice; and thirdly, for making a conspicuous hase o' jer self."

A BOMBER'S EXPLOIT. ZXOITING "HID]-AND-SEEK." A bombing raid is the most excit leg game of "hide-and-seek" over in vented. For to this game the pen alty of failure or discovery is not merely to take your turn to be "It." The penalty in death or capture. There are bombers who do not hesl. tate to creep into the heart of enemy territory at night. It was a bomber who played chief part in a little ruse de guerre by which many Germane were diseomfor. ted. The Doches wero enaconced in the ruins of a house. They had a machine gun, and were not easy to get at close quarters. Dut after nightfall a Dritish machine gun was trained with delicate care upon the door of that house. A bomber crept in, and working his way forward by devious routes, came actually to the back of the boune. He climbed up on to its battered roof, and from t "' %i.rlri e ,ut ,, I gan a l ?t l' e e'·,t of hubtIlli through roof Li.· : 'ter: etar? upon the startled Geran.,r low, and when they rushed out of the front door th...

There was a very fair attendance of the general public, although not as large:as as some of tile E?aertainers' preceding concerts. The performers all acquitted themselves well, and met with good receptions, especially Rhloda Peck, the audience's r?cllopction of her previous appearances eliciting a rousing welcome, and her tong, " God send you back to ime," was a very popular one. Encores were noumrlous, especially in tile case of Cliff Monohan, who is also a great favourite, and in most cases were conl plied with. During the interval in the concert the Ilonour Board presented by Major E T'. Apps was unveiled by that gen tleman. Dir.

THE LACK OF IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 18 January 1918

THE LACK- OF IMAGINATION. The eause of the loss of this creative instinct appears to me to be through parochialism and environment. flaving lived in other climes I realise a difference in thbo characteristics of those that have travelled and those that have not. The latter that have negotiated a flying trip by motor or rail have to close their eyes to wtnd and dust, conseqoeatly they are lulled r? e r? ee-ete-----le 'b.- O mca at the wheel is pivoted ad self-centred eecsearily and sees all that he must see through goggles. The man that travels in another fashion, or rather waltzes Matilda, is always too thirsty, and thinking what show be has as a hammer at the nearest hotel, or, if it is only hunger, makes a bee line for a pannikin of flour, which puts a damper on his imagination, therefore his troubles are only his stomach. These men are written about by others that travel the correct pace in the right way. This major. ity, which is increasin., exemplifies and is to me convincing o...

ROAMING. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 18 January 1918

ROAMING. He hasn't always been living at ease, On a farm and a nice little home ; For when a man's young and can do as he likes, Very often he chooses to roam. So he'll roll up his bluey and go on the track, To see other parts of the earth ; With never a thought as to when he'll come back To the dear little place of his birth. He has carried his swag o'er the wide Loddon plains, And begged for his tucker and tea From farmers who oft had more losses than gains, For some were far poorer than he. He has ploughed for a cockey at Pannoo- milloo, And labored from early till dark ; They would call him at five — in the winter time, too, And out for the horses he'd hark. He must listen and listen to hear the horse bell, For see them the devil but could ; It was just by the sound of the jingle he'd tell, Where to find them out there in the wood. They had to be harnessed and ready for work, By the time that the clock had struck seven ; Or out came the boss just as cross as a Turk, Using langua...
