AUSTRALIANS IN ITALY SOLDIERS' GOOD TIME IN FLORENCE. "Crowds Followed Them Everywhere" [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 December 1915

AUSTRALIANS IN ITALY SOLDIERS' GOOD TIME IN FLORENCE. "Crowds Followed Them Everywhere" Sonic of the Australian troops who had served for months on end in the Callipoli trenches were sent to Italy for a brief respite, mul, according to the story of Lieut. Fred Strickland (W.A.) contained in a letter to Mel bourne relatives, they have had "a glorious holiday." At Florence the Australians were entertained by an I American millionaire named Beren son. "He lives in a palace in the city of flowers," proceeds Strickland, "and I previous to the war spent his time in j making art collections. We lived like princes of the dominion, with special suites and attendants." Other wealthy citizens and visitors to Florence as sisted iti ministering to the comfort of the Australians. Everywhere they went Uio crowds went with them, cheering and making them welcome. Eventually tho "holiday" assumed such a crowded aspect that the doc tors insisted on tho men being given more time for rest. "It is now bu...

WHITE MEN AND BROWN 1 PIONEERING IN NEW BRITAIN. NATIVES PROVE AMUSING. (By Lieut. W. Ii. Phipps.) Rabaul, October 31. Coming down from Namanula I see I every day many amusing and interest- I ing spectacles.

At dawn ho finds himself on the spa- : cious verandah of a bungalow shaded 1 by palms, and made beautiful by the never-failing blossoms of the Bougain viliea creeper and the scarlet and white hibiscus. Reveille has not yet sounded, but Government House, a little further up the hill, is stirring. Colonel S. A. I'ethebridge, the Admin istrator, is already at work, and his staff officers are moving about the balconies. Ration carriers issue from the gates, and go singing down the footways through the jungle to Rabaul —the little white town on the rim of tlio beautiful harbor. N...

COMMENTS ON CUR RENT EVENTS. Hv Gkadkr. I he proposed method of dealing with the wheat harvest is causing many farmers grave concern. and in letters to the daily press they strongly assail it. They assert that the nett advance of 2s Od a bushel is not sufficient to enable them to meet their liabilities, and they ask that the amount of the advance ho increased. They should recollect, that the advance of Us a hushel f.o.li, is sirnplv a first instalment on the sale of their wheat, and that they have a pood chance of receiving a substantial demand when accounts are squared in November next year. The great majority of the farmers market their wheat in the months of January j and February, and unoer tho present ' extraordinary conditions forced sales of wheal in those months could only he effected at sacrificial "prices, while under the proposed method they can use the advance to meet pressing liabilities and hold their wheat for a rise in price. 5 think the p\i\n n good one : it enables...

THE BOORT BAND. Hospital Sunday Moneys.

There was a large attendance, and the chair was occupied by the vice-president (Mr W H . Elliott). An account was presented from the ."Advertiser," Inglewood, for £1 for advertising dates and places in con nection with the Hospital Sunday gatherings. The chairman said that it was an outrageous thing for a paper situated in the town of Inglewood to make such a charge. He referred to the action of the "Northern District Stan dard" in doing the printing and ad vertising free, and not only that but had given the fullest publicity on behalf of the Inglewood Hospital. It appeared as if Inglewood was adopting the atti tude of getting as much from the out side centres it was possible to get, and then...

HARD WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

HARD WATER. Do you realise how hard water is when a boat sails through it at full speed? Water passing at fifty miles an hour is not the limpid liquid we are accustomed to bathe in. If you put your arm overboard from a hy droplane running fifty miles an hour and strike a wave crest, the probabil ity is that you will break your arm or wrist, because at that speed the water has not time to Rive, or even to change shape, and striking it is like striking so much metal. If a swordsman should enter one of the great hydraulic quarries where a stream of water, under enormous head, is used to wash down hillsides, and attempt to cut into one of those streams, his sword would fly in pie ces without being able to penetrate the -water. The stream is like a bar of iron.

"Some" Voice. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

"Some" Voice. Here is a story that was told by Congressman John E. Baker, of Cali fornia, the other night, when the talk topic in the lobby of a hotel took a musical turn: — Some time ago the guests at a re ception were discussing the relative merits of several vocalists, when one of the party turned to a man named Brown. "By the way, Brown," said he, "you are something of a singer, are you not?" "N"t on your life!" was the empha tic response of Brown. "I never sang a note that somebody didn't threaten to send In a riot call. You are proba bly thinking of my brother." "Perhaps I am," was the thought ful rejoinder of the other. "Has he a heavy bass voice?" "Yes," smiled Brown: "so denied heavy that It makes him bowlegged to carry it." "What does the Bible say will hap pen to the proud?" inquired a Dub lin Sunday-school teacher of her class. A bright little girl promptly re plied: "They'll be turned into animals." Very much surprised, the teacher asked how she arrived at that con clus...

A SCOTTISH LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

A 8C0TTI8H LEGEND. The history of the saying, "I'll do as the cow or Forfar did; I'll tak' a atandln' drink." la thus told by a cor respondent of the "Arbroath Quide": A brewster-wlfe In Forfar, previous to the Restoration, having one day "browed a peck ' maut," which she expected a large company of topers that night to consume, set the samo out to cool at the door. A neighbor's cow soon came along, scented the sa vory caldron, and began to solace herself with a draught. The liquor was balmy and good, and the animal, loth to lose so sweet an opportunity, was In no haste to take her loving lips away. She continued to swill without Interruption, and, like the wife of Auchtermuchty, "aye she winklt, and aye she drank." till she at length completely finished the browst. At this stage out came the unlucky owner of the liquor, and, to her dismay, saw an empty skeel where she had left a full one, over which Luckie's cow was hanging with au air of pensive satisfaction that too plainly betra...

Salt for Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

Salt for Cows. Cows that are good producers use approximately three ounces of salt per day ; and that dairy cattle should have salt is one of the very important questions many of us do not understand, and therefore neglect, writes a Canadian dairy farmer. All animals which con sume large quantities of vegetable matter require salt. Salt is required to expel the ex cess of potash from the animal body which is taken in with the vege table food. Cows which do not get sufficient salt gradually change to a condition of low vitality, in dicated by rough coat, which re sults in a final breakdown. If salt is supplied when in this condition, recover}- is possible. There is no question that salt is absolutely essential to the preserva tion of the health of milk-pro ducing herds, while the expense of salting cows is so trifling that it cannot be used as an excuse for not attending to such a weighty con sideration.

Retreat in Order. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

Retreat in Order. Even an extremely aggressive en emy can be conquered by strategy; j it is only a question of employing the stratagem fitted to the case. An open-air preacher of East Lon don understood this, and his strata gem fitted to a charm. He was ad dressing a crowd when a 60ldler who had been drinking came up and ridi culed the service- Finding it was useless to ignore the man, the preacher said: "Ah, my friend, you're no soldier. N'o servant of the King would get drunk and interrupt a peaceful ser- j vice." The man said he was a soldier, and asketl the preacher to test him. "Very well." was the reply; "I will. Now, then, attention!" This the soldier did as well as his condition would allow. "About—turn!" This order was also obeyed, though with some trouble. "Quick march!" And off went the valiant soldier, inarching down the road at a quick pace, while the preacher resumed his address. Quite English, You Know. A Frenchman was relating his ex periences of studying the English...
