HIS LUSITANIA BRIDE. Engaged on Board, Rescued and Married. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
| HIS UTSITANIA BRIDE. Engaged on Board, Rescued and Married. Standing out in bright relief from the grim and awful tragedy of the Lusitariia is tlie pretty romance of a young engineer, who met for the first time his bride-to-be as the liner left New York, proposed, saved her from death when the Germans torpedoed the ship, and married her within a week. Very few people saw the cere mony or knew anything of the roman tic love affair of Mr. John Welch, en gineer, and Miss Gerta Neilson, a mil liner. Mr. Welch's home is in Carlton terrace, Manchester, and it was there that he and his bride related how they met on the voyage, and cheated death. Smilingly Mrs. Welch said that al though :she and her husband were embarking upon married life, prac tically as a -penniless couple, for they had lost all their possessions, the re sult of many years' savings, she was quite confident regarding the future. Mrs. Welch showed the life-belt her lover fastened round her during their last moments on th...

Patriotic Relief Funds. LINTON CONTRIBUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
LINTON CONTRIBUTIONS. Australia Day was celebrated in Lin- ton by a jumble fair held in front of Mr F. O'Beirne's premises, next door to the Shire Hall, in addition to the sale of flowers, golliwogs, etc, by girls attired as Red Cross nurses, whose efforts se- cured £8 for the fond. These young girls were pupils of the Misse Barry, who, with the assistance of Mrs A. J. Smith, turned them into very bright and &nbsp; attractive little nurses for the occasion. Another branch of the day's effort was &nbsp; a number of raffles, a sheep being won by Mrs Cork, a quilt,by Mr Cameron, &nbsp; and cushions by Mrs Jacka, Miss Ken- &nbsp; nedy, and Miss Grigg. Mr A.

Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
A fine motor cycle performance was recently registered over the mountainous country between Toowoomba and Bris bane by W. Power, who negotiated the 92 miles in 2 hours 55 minutes. The. fastest previous time foe this rough trip was 8 hours 8 minutes by a motor car. - H. G. Hawker, the Victorian aviator now in England, recently established a oew British altitude record by 'flying to a height of 20,000 feet, which means an altitude of over miles. It took Hawker an hour and a half to aeeomplish the flight. He usedan 80 h.p&lt; Sopvi&'bf-"' plane, a similar make of machine to that used by him in Australia. Fifteen hundred employees of the English Dunlop Rubber Co. are now f serving at the front. This must be I ' nearly a record service from any. one British commercial company.
Should Children be Punished? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
? ■ Tnis is a point that is discussed.by A. :B. Osfaorn, M.A., in the scecond' of a series of articles on " Australian Parents and their children," wliich he is writing for " Everylad's Journal." The A'agast issne of that enterprising magazine, is .to band, and for all-round value and inr terest it woald be very hard to surpass. So many excellent features mark this number that it is difficult to pick out any one for special notice, but it may be mentioned that the Hon. John Murray, (Victoria's bluff Chief Secretary), Dr. Edith Barrett, Police-Commissioner Sainsbury, and other notable public men and women contribute short articles on the question of employing women ais police. One or two of those who. wpte recognise that if women are abla-lto relieve the police force of a considerable part of its work, many fine fighting men might be released to go to the front. Apart from these there are many bright special stories iu the current is sue of " Everylady's Journal," and the " £100 War-...
War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
, As is to be expected the movements of tha Russian armies eastward from Warsaw are being kept secret. It is cheering, however, to hear that a mighty effort by the Germans to force the Kovno defences, on the left flank, has failed. The enemy's communiques do not record any substantial gains. . New ground has been brokea in the Dar danelles. The Allies have landed forces • at two points on the shores of the Gulf of Saros, which should make it possible for them to - isolate the Turks on Gallipoli from all com munications by land. Already our submar ines hold this mastery over the sea routes. The value of generous stores of munitions has been demonstrated again. By means of a ferrific artillery fire, Sir John French pul verised the German defences at Hooge, and woil back positions that had been lost owing to lack of shells. Simultaneously comes the announcement from Mr Lloyd George that the output of the British munitions factories is one hundredfold in excesiof what it waa in'S'dplfem...

CYCLING & MOTORING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
CYCLING & MOTORING. An attempt 19 to be made at an early date to reduce R. Reichen bach's Trans continental cycle record from Adelaide to Port Darwin, a journey of 1969 miles across Australia. This information is .conveyed to the Danlop Rubber Co., by -wire-from Palmerston—J. Fahey (late of Victoria) stating that he intends cycling to Adelaide to enlist, and that on his way southwards he intends trying to reduce the existing record of 28 days 7 minutes, established by Reichenbach in June, 1914. Fahey has had previous experience of ihe overland route, for he started away with Reichenbach on his record ride last year, but owing to a sprained ankle through falling over an embankment, miles from Ade laide, he was compelled to lay op, leav ing, his companion to complete the jour ney alone. Fahey's proposed ride across Australia to enlist must surely be a record cycle journey by an Australian to serve his country, A defect to which many cars are liable is that of excessive noise i...
Brought Down to Date. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
Brought Down to Date. "Man wants but little here below, Nor wants that little long," Is what they sang some years ago— But it's now another song. The words we use are different quite, Though fully as sublime— "Man wants everything in sight, And wants it all the time." Mrs. Brown: I am sure you have a good husband. Mrs. Green: Yes; but then he is such a wretched manager. If you'll believe it, he went and paid Our butcher's bill last week, when he knew well enough that the children were dying for bicycles. If a mother chases her children out of the room when another •woman calls, there is gossip in the air. Quicke: What does Taffs remind you off? Showson: Well, every time I meet Taffs he reminds me of a little debt I've owed him for over a year. • _

On the Face of It. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
On the Face of It, Smith, who lived in the West, left his home town early in his youth. Re turning after several years, he was met by an elderly acquaintance whom he: had not seen in the intervening time. "Glad to see you, my boy," greet ed the elderly one; "but you look as if yon had not stuck to lime-juice and soda-water as closely as you should." ''You mustn't judge by appearan ces, uncle," smiled Smith. "I have never taken more than two or three glasses a day in all my life." "Urn, I see," responded the other. "Probably your face is like some gas meters; it registers more than you consume."
LOVE AND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
LOVE AND WAR. By Marian Fii.lay. "Dick, do' you believe in presenti ments?" Tlxe speaker was a tall graceful girl, with dark, earnest blue eye§ and a mass of rippling brown hair. Her husband leaned back' and caught her , hands in his as she stood behind his chair on the ivy-covered verandah of the Brym Aber Hotel. "Do I believe in presentiments?" he said. "No, my child — most em phatically no! Why do you ask?'' A little half-nervous laugh was the only answer, and the girl drew her hands from his clasp and began to toy with the broad gold band which gleamed so brightly on the third fin ger of her left hand. "Why do you ask me, Connie?" her husband asked again, drawing her to his side. "Is something troubling you, dear?" "Don't laugh at me, Dick, but I have a most miserable feeling that our happiness—and we have been happy, haven't we?—is nearly over. I can't help the feeling—it is a sort of horrible foreboding and has haunted me all day." "You poor child, what a doleful face! Why, Co...
THE GERMANS' GREATEST GENERAL. How Railways Help Hindenburg. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
THE GERMANS' GREATEST GENERAL. How Railways Help Hindenburg. The decisive factor in the titanic struggle which is sweeping to and fro over the plains of ' Poland and East Prussia is not Gereral Von Hin denburg nor Grand Duke Nicholas, but General Locomotive, says the "Scientific American." After giving due credit to the stra tegical skill of the German and Rus ! sian generals, to the wonderful mili tary efficiency of the German Army, and to the traditional stubbornness and bravery of the Russ'an infantry, it has become evident during the past six months of the great war that the fundamental determining condition of success, for one side or the other, is the propinquity of the contending armies to the network of military railroads which approaches and everywhere covers the German fron One of the most illuminating bits of literature which anyone can read at the present time is the second chap ter of General Kouropatkin's great work, entitled "The Russian Army and the Japanese War."

SLAUGHTER IN SUNSHINE Along the Allies Front. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
SLAUGHTER IN SUNSHINE Along the Allies Front. By Wm. G. Shephard, Correspondent with the.British Army in France. Our motor-car stopped at the foot of a hill. The firing had sounded near er and nearer as we went along. "We'll run up this hill and see how it' looks," said the doctor. "We can see the whole British line from here." Ten minutes later we were on the top. "There's Ostend," said the doc tor, "and the English Channel. Here's Ypres and here's Armentieres." There before us stretched 60 milss of battle line; and, on 15 miles of it, the fiercest battle in' the history of war fare was being fought between the British and the Germans. It was the first day of the new summer war. The deep roar of a hundred storms throb bed in the air. We tried to take in the view and its vast significance in one general survey. It "was impos sible; clouds of smoke here and there; the thunder of guns. The eyes and ears took them in, but it was all so vast that my mind remained unmoved; it couldD't re...
Different Cakes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
Different Cakes. A man went to order a -wedding cake the other day. "I'm getting married," he said, "and I want a cake." "Well, it's the latest thing," said the shop-girl, "to have wedding cakes in harmony with the bridegroom's calling or profession. Thus, a journ alist has a spice cake, a musician an oat cake, an athlete a cup cake, a man who loafs on his friends a sponge cake, and so forth and so on. What is your calling, please?" "I am a pianist." "Then, of course," said the girl, "you will want a pound cake."
