AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XII.) WHERE WE STAND IN THIS WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
AUSTRAL,; A PLAYS THE. GAME (No. XII.) WHERE WE STAND IN THIS WAR. The first task of the recruiter must he to drive home the intense reality and supreme importance of this war to every Australian. Despite our al most indifferent attitude, it is a fact that Australia is at war, and that it was her Invasion of Papua that , first broke the peace with Germany. It was one of our ships that sank the Emdon. It was our army that drove back the Germans on the bloody field of Po zieres. It was our Prime Minister who gave the lead to all the dominions by offering "our last man and our last shilling." Therefore, Germany must include Australia in its "Hymn of Hate." Long ere this, had the Ger man Fleet been at large, the channels of Sydney and Melbourne would have run red with blood, and their streets been a mass of ruins. Not our most abject surrender would now ward off vengeance; nor, we suspect, would there be discrimination shown to our overt traitors who have played the ' German game by fom...
HERE'S THE BEST WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
HEftE'8 THE BEST WAY. Life is full of small vexations, Little worries, little rubs, Unexpected aggravations, Petty setbacks, sneers and snubs. If you mean to let 'em fret you. Rankle underneath your liide, Soon an early grave will get you Let 'em slide. Laugh, and cast away your troubles, Never hug them to your breast. Worry, and your grievance doubles Don't take sorrow for your guest. Bound to linger if you pet It, Laugh, and it won't long abide; Let it go and then forget it. Let it slide. Not a bit of use in crying Over any milk that's spilled. Nothing's ever helped by sighing Gare a nine-lived cat has killed. You've your trials, I don't doubt it, Still it's time your tears were dried Never look so glum about it Let It slide.
CHAPTER XXIV. A Sacrifice—and the End. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
CHAPTER XXIV. A Sacrifice-and the End. "What Is ft you want of rnei Miles Buckford?" He laughed in an ugly note, and she felt her soul quail within her. "Money," he said sullenly. "A lot o£ it. As much' as you can lay hands on, and a bit more than that." She concentrated her loathing gaze on his brutal face. "You had the instalment less than a month ago. Are you never to be satisfied?" Something approaching eagerness came into his manner. "Now, look here, Belle, play fair. I'm not asking for what isn't my own by rights. But I'm going away out of England - for good." Her heart leaped to the news; some of her burden appeared to lift. "England's no place for me; I want more room. There's a chance out in New Zealand, now; a fine chance, for a man with a bit of capital - say five thousand pounds." She fell back again at that. Five thousand pounds! It could be done in an emergency, but inquiries might result. "Now, I swear to God, that if you hand up the money I'll clear out, lock, stock ...
Expecting Too Much. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
Expecting Too.Much. Gonerai Sir William Robertson, who, as everybody knows, rose from: the ranks, told a good story the other-day concerning his early experiences oJ barrack-room life. In those days the messing was not what it is now, and complaints were not infrequent, one item the men spe cially objected to being the "bully" (preserved) beef, then newly intro duced as a regular item of Army diet in peace time. "Any complaints?" asked the order ly officer one day when the much-dis liked ration was being served for din ner. "Yes, sir," promptly replied a new recruit. "This 'ere bully-beef ain't fit for the likes of us to eat, and I wish to report it." The doctor was sent for to inspect, the food. "So you think this meat isn't fit for a man in your position to eat?" said he. "Allow me to toll you that greater men than ever you will be have eaten it. Even the Commander-in-Chief wasn't above eating it in the Crimea, and made many a hearty meal of.it.'' "Oh, did he?" retorted the recrui...
CUT OFF WITH A SHILLING. Women Leave Nasty Wills, Too. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
CUT OFF WITH A SHILLING. Women Leave Nasty Wills, Too. By the will of a north country man proved a few weeks ago, his wife was cut off with the proverbial shilling. The same sum of money was left his wife by a certain builder, one David Osment, whose fortune amount ed to £7,700. An ex-mayor of Gwynfryn left a still larger sum of money, £72jl2G, but he only willed a shilling to his wife. Then there is the historical will of the man who left a farthing to be sent to his spouse in an unstamped en velope. But it isn't only men who leave spiteful wills. Four pounds for a mourning suit was all a Birmingham lady bequeath ed to her husband. A certain Miss Mary Marchant left a "box and all its contents" to her doctor. On being opened the box was found to contain all the medicines the doctor had prescribed for his bene factress for nineteen years.

Sporting. INTENDING competitors at the forth coming Easter Carnival at Bright are again reminded that nominations for alt events close with the secretary (Mr fc. J. Delany)on Saturday, 31 inst The entries to hand so far are very encouraging. Arthur Larkin, of Bright, again mono polised the riding at the Tarrawingee races on Saturday last.

These were Marvel, who won with 104; Ben Bolt, with 9 9; Sir Foote, with 9.4; and Courallie, with 93 Three years ago Gigandra ran second in the Doncaster with 9 8, and in 1911 Flavinius was third with 9 7- Should Poiycrates capture the race, he will be bracketed with Wakeful and Sir Foote as winners of the New market Handicap and...

The Open Column. |.\Vedo not necessarily identify ourselves with opinions expressed in these columns.] UNEMPLOYMENT. TO THE EDITOR 3m,-There is a Btrong suspicion thit attempts ore being made just now to create unemployment by all Government departments on the plea that money is needed for war purposes, and yet the protectionist deputation to the Prime Minister lately told hira that we imported silks and satins valued at ^1,500,000 last year. We alBO imported for the half year £2,500,000 worth of motor oars and aceeeaorioB. It is euBy to see that a cer tain olass does not economise, whilst others are driven from pillar to post dogged by fear of want.

It seems to many of us that this muddling mismanagement is deliberately organised, for whore we could asBiat the Empire we are only mocking and fooling.
