CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915

CYCLING. T. Hammond is another cyclist who has laid down his lfie at the Dardanelles. Ham- mond's death from wounds was announced a few days ago. Frank Corry, of Bathurst, won a half-hour motor-paced race at Toronto from R. H. Walthour, who on two successive occasions won the world's paced championship, and J. F. Moran, the famous six days' rider. The overlanding cyclist, J E. Fahey, left Port Darwin, Northern Territory, for Adel- aide at 6 a.m. on Monday, 2nd inst. He is riding the same machine as E. Reichenbach used when he lowered the record last year. Reichenbach accompanied Fahey down as far as the Pine Creek railway terminus. A telegram received by the Dunlop Company from Katherine River (215 miles) on August 4 stated that Fahey had reached there after a heavy ride against a strong south wind. The record which Fahey is endeavoring to lower is 28 days 15 hours 45 minutes. The struggle for the American profes- sional sprint championship is being con- tested by a larger number of...

THINGS WE'D LIKE TO SEE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915

THINGS WE'D LIKE TO SEE. Lithgow brought more into prominence as a tourist resort and not necessarily as an industrial centre only. At present the town is disparagingly referred to as 'dirty Lithgow' by certain residents, who go about with their eyes closed to anything good in Lithgow and its surroundings and they are too indolent to go afar in search of beauty. Certainly our pretty spots have to be sought for and some are distant from the town, but the travellers   who exert themselves are well repaid when they reach them and the exercise in our bracing mountain air is a splendid tonic.   Why should not the Government Tourist   Bureau suggest to the mountain tourist that two or three days might advantageously be   spent in Lithgow? Recently an amateur photographer suggested at a P.A. meeting that that association might do something     in advertising the district by getting   photographers to...

Headed the List. A BEN BULLEN PATRIOT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915

Headed the List. A BEN BULLEN PATRIOT. On Monday morning all the Public Offices were shut, but a country teacher found his way into the Education Department, and after conisderable search, reached the only officer who was at work. It happened to be   Mr. Board, Director of Education. The tea- cher apologised for his intrusion, and hand- ed Mr. Board a cheque for £10, the contri- bution of a little school called Ben Bullen, on the Mudgee line. He explained that he could not wait till next day as he was going to Liverpool. 'When I got your circular,' explained the teacher. 'I called a meeting of all the young fellows about to talk about the war, and after a yarn I opened a list for re- cruits.' 'What happened?' said Mr. Board. 'Well, a good many signed on. I have got 15 of them down with me.' 'And you are going into camp too?' 'Oh, yes,' was the reply; 'I headed the list.' The teacher referred to is Mr. Leslie Un- derwood, son of Mr. H. Underwood, of Budgee.

The Small Arms Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

The Small Arms Factory. The following letter appeared in the 'Daily Telegraph' of Tuesday last, and as it expresses what we have been advocating we reprint it with pleasure: — Sir, — As the powers that have been elected to fight the case for the removal of the Small Arms Factory from Lithgow to Canberra in the public press instead of on the floor of the House, permit me to correct a few egregious official errors. The estimae for building and equipping a factory at Canberra witih staff quarte'rs, huh iiavins iwme me uayacuy 01 cue laui.ury at Lithgow, is given as £92,000; the land being practically given in. The price that has been paid for a corner half the capacity at Lithgow, with staff quarters, and not al lowing anything for land, was £178,000. Will anyone believe that this official estim ate is justified as against what -we know to be a fact? It is officially reiterated in the press of to-day that the land required for extensions at Litihgow and the plotting of a garden suburb ...

A SPY INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

A SPY INCIDENT. , A curious experience was that of a wom an I met the other evening, says a writer in 'The Office Window' of the 'Daily Chron icle.' She was returning across the Chan nel, and, being more or less invalided, had secured and paid for a cabin to herself. But at tho last moment an appeal for a .nun -^the steamer was otherwise full, and the nun was admitted to another berth. The English woman at about mid-passage turned uneasily — and, leaning over saw her com panion shaving. Very sensibly she passed the matter for a moment, but mentioned it before landing. And beneath the nun's garb was found a German Officer. He now pays penalty for his discourtesy in 'shav- ing before ladies.'

As we seated ourselves, Ned cried 'It 'worked lovely, Mr. Crisp; just lovely. Miss McNasty was in a lively mood. She talked just as if I had never made a fool of myself the other night. She said she would love to ' press my suit, and was glad to hear that nay sister Sally had such a good opinion of her work.. 'Your sister Sally is a wonder ful woman and has plenty of common sense,' she said. Then I told her how I was feelin' ' like a holiday, and meant to do it like a toff. 'Expense will be no object,' I says, 'as long as I see a. bit of real life. 'How loving,' she says, drawing in her breath quick.

Clegg at the Katooinba Police Court for failing to have names placed on the Federal electoral roll.

THE DRINKER'S PSALM. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

THE DRINKER'S PSALM. Strong drink is my master. I shall not want for liquid fire as long as I have* any money. It maketh me to fall down drunk in the gutter; it leadeth me to the abode of vice and crime; it destroyeth my soul; it leadeth me in the paths of drunkenness, for my money's sake; yea, though I walk in high society, I can hope for no deliver ance, for there it is with me; its strength nnH ifra inflnartna tVmv fnll/\-n- rvm » 14- **«?»_ pareth a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; it stirreth up my brain with revellings; my cup runneth over; surely want and misery shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in a drunkard's hell for ever. — Sent by H.

The officer passed, unrecognised by the sol dier. The officer turned and exclaimed, 'Don't you know enough to salute your of ficer?' . ' 'Yes,' came the reply sharply, 'when I see one.' ' 'Well, don't I look like an officer?' ' 'I can't see any distinction, sir.' ' 'Do privates wear raincoats and carry walking canes?' ' 'No, sir; but sanitary Inspectors do!.'*

Germany and England. Armageddon : The Great Danger [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

Germany and England. Armageddon : The Great Danger Mr. Balfour once declared that t;he pro blem of., imperial defence was .the problem of the defence of Afghanistan. But times liave changed since then, and I shall pro pose an amendment to the following ef fect:— 'The problem of British defence is the ?defence of Prance.' There it is : the greater danger, the, nearer danger than the danger of a German in vnoinn nf 'RVnTino ? ? ??? ?'' ' A German writer, quoted by me in a pre vious article, says that directly Germany feels herself menaced she will strike, and France, will be her victim. He continues thus: 'Unhappy France!' The British Navy ?nay destroy the German Fleet and ruin German foreign trade. But nothing on earth can prevent the German Army from over running France from Paris to Lyons and from the English Channel to the Mediter ranean. The French are laboring under a dangerous delusion if they suppose that Ger many would be satisfied with an indemnity at the termination of such...

Balderdash. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

Balderdash. (By a 'Loot.') I grabbed hold of a 'Watkinograph' the other night and had a look at the work of art headed 'Recruits undergoing the medi cal test,' arid wondered what on earth a daily newspaper can see in publishing half page portraits of semi-nude recruits for the public edification. Some of the. lads might not feel ? grateful for this gratuitous adver tisement, and I fail to see that it serves' any userul journalistic purpose. A good, gritty Australian, though he hasn't. 16-in. biceps, can shoot a 'squarehead' or a Turk just as well as a Samson or a Goliath. Why in thunder don't they drop it? .'«'?? * ' ' , * ' id , ,* 'Tis said that 'Bill the Butcher' is show ing signs of crawfishing.
