FIRE BRIGADE NOTES. Do You KNOW ? That in the match Fire Brigade v. Archie's Creek, the Brigade boys kick ed 12 goals 12 behinds to 1 goal 4 be hinds. That P.

FIERCE BAYONET CHARGES. BATTLE IN CARPATHIANS. SLAUGHTER OF GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 4 June 1915

FIERCE BAYONET CHARGES. BATTLE IN CARPATHIANS. SLAUGHTER OF GERMANS. Tie Russians won a great piecory in the Carpathians early in February. The scene of the conflict was between Stry and Mimkutch, 14 miles from the crest of the ridge, known as the heights of Kozyv.vka, which is also tho boundary line separating Galicia from Hungary. The Austro-German forces were repulsed with great slaughter. The Petrograd correspondent of the London "Daily Tolegraph" writes: "At night, under cover of darkness, the Germans massed a large force in front of the Russian position, and in the grey light of the dawn line upon line of infantry were sent forward to their death. Tho attack was delivered with terrific impetuosity, and covered by a furiouB fire from the enemy's heavy artillery. Undeterred by thoir experiences in Flanders and on the Bzura, the Germans hero once more re lied almost exclusively on the momen tum of enormous numbers driven for ward remorselessly and unceasingly ap parently regardle...

FIRE BRIGADE v. ARCHIE'S CK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 4 June 1915

FIRE BRIGADE v. ARCHIE'S CK. The above match was played on the Council Recreation Reserve on Satur day, and resulted in a very easy win for the locals, who scored 12 goals 12 be hinds to I goal 4 behinds. The game was one-sided from beginning to end and attracted very little interest. Al . though the visitors :were hopelessly beaten, they played with stubborn re sistance, but their opponents proved too good in every department of the game, consequently there was nothing laft for the Creek boys to do, but to sink to the inevitable and suffer defeat. The Brigade were best represented by P. Alderson, who played a good all round game, as also did W. Munro, H. Munro, L. Wallace, M. Iiazen, Kent, O. Edwards, Hanley, Medhurst, Ste vens, Davies, and McCallum. Those who played well for the visitors were Schilling, Sibley, Matthews, McGuin ness, and Brown.

OLYMPIA HORSEMAN'S LEAP. ESCAPE FROM UHLANS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 4 June 1915

OLYMPIA HORSEMAN'S LEAP, ESCAPE FROM UHLANS. Let no one again say that show, jumping is useless, writes a correspon dent in Flanders of the London Daily Mail. The other day I came upon a Belgian officer, famous as a rider and a judge of horses, whom I had met at Olympia. I asked him whether he had found the art of jumping in tha ring and high school riding of any prac tical service. "Have I?" he said to his companions, and one of them told mo the story of almost h s first adven ture in the, war. He was sent with a despatch across a neighborhood much frequented by Uhlans, and before he knew he found himself cut off by 15 of them. They at one© started to ride him down. In front of him was a double fence of barbed wire, and without hesitation he put his horse, a favorite jumper, at the obstacle. He just touched the horse on the quarters as he rose, and the animal, giving that little sideways wriggle with the heels which marliH the prize jumper just cleared tlje obs tacle. Some of the G...

THE ARTLESS RUSSIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 4 June 1915

THE ARTLESS RUSSIAN. By Lieut.-Col. H. 0. Barclay, M.D. During the four months 1 was in the hospital at Uvow, or Lemberg, I never once, under any circumstances, saw a Russian soldier even in the paltriest sense rude to his fellow-man or kin snemy. The moment the city was-cap tured the one sincere desire of the Russian soldier seemed to be to treat the inhabitants as friends. It would be impossible to imagine men more in born innate gentlemen than are the Russian soldiers. Apropos of thia, it was interesting for me to be told by a resident of Lvow, a mau of high social position, that the worst the Auatriano could say against the Russians was that, after all the arms owned by civi lians had been called in, the Russian officer in command allowed his own offi cers to go to the municipal building and pick 'out_ such as took their fancy; whereas the Austrians had expected their arms to be restored to them in good condition when peace was de clared. This, the Austrians themselves admitted,...

SACRED SINGING IN THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 4 June 1915

SACRED SINGING IN THE COUNTRY. Fardown in the country, where grand opera methods have not yet been ap plied to church singing, a blessed old minister arose and announced the num ber of the hymn he desired the con gregation to sing. He followed the old cuBtom of "lining out" the hymn. That is, ho would read a line in a loud voice, and then the congregation would sing it. The first line was as follows: - "We praise Thee, 0 God, for thy power ten thousand strong." The congregation tried the lino, and was on such a high key that when 'tea thousand strong" was reached, every body was up in a screech. "I'm afraid that's too high," eaid the benevolent old' man, "too high oa. the 'ten thousand srtrongV His difficulty was solved by an old fellow who stood up far back in the church and exclaimed in a nasal voice: "All right then, bring it down to ouo thousand I" Teacher: "The sentence 'my father had money' is in the past tense.

OUR NATURAL RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915

OUR NATURAL RESOURCES. It is difficult to overestimate the value of our undeveloped natural resources. It would seem as though little is want ing ' in Australia of those commodities necessary to complete the independence of ail insular peoplo. Coal is more plentiful than we imagine; metals of constant domand and even of extrome rarity aro being rapidly discovered, and these ,constitute the principal items of manufactures of big proportions. Tim bers we havo almost unequalled in the world for durability and texture; stones of almost every quality from marble to bluestone; coment and lime in abund- j ance, and so on; all that is needed is the development that comes of business acumon and encouragement. Perhaps our most neglectod industry is the prin cipal ono of iron and steel. That we aro not wanting in tho resource is amply assured, and that our iron is not lacking in quality is equally proved. Without going "0 miles from Ballarat wo have some of the linost qualities of iron, vet no...

Ihey ate continually being iaced with new prob lems ,and the opportunity for discuss ing tlnw, either in conferonco awwni bled, or in the course of tho iratorn ising that attends their coming togoth or in the city at this time of year, is mutually beneficial. Not the least interesting foatur© of bheso conferences is tiio roview of the butter industry for the past year which is given by the Superitendant of Exports. This year tho talo unfolded by Mr Crowe was not the pleasant reading it usually is.

HERB OF SWEET POTATO AS FODDER FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915

HERB OF SWEET POTATO AS FODDER FOR STOCK. By G. Rcnner, Botanical Assistant. In the Bulletin of the Imperial Cent- ' ra! Agricultural Experiment Station, ! Japan, Mr T. Katayama invites atten tion to the value, apparently little ! known of the stem and leaves, i.e., the j parts above ground, of the* "Swoet | Potato" as a nutritious l'od^er for j stock. As this must be plentiful where the plant is at all extensicolj j grown, and since the sweet potato has j been cultivated, with some success, even j in Victoria, it may be of some interest j to become acquainted with the results I of the Japanese scientist's experiments | which led him to devote an article of j upwards of lorty pages to the praifo. j and to an account of the treatment, of , the herb for the purpose of its employ- | rnciit as fodder. His compatriots, it j appears, whilst assiduously cultivating j the plant for the sake of its tubers, look upon the stem and leaves rather as a necessary evil, because of its rank growth s...
