OUR NOTE BOOK. Are we Round the Bend. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 11 September 1914
OUR NOTE BOOK. Are we Round the Bend. The news from tho front during the last day or two, has been very encouraging. Previously the Allies have bean falling back, but in per* feet order, and the Germans have up to the present spared neither lives or energy to pierce the Allies' lines. The German attack in the last few days as lost some of its dash, and the 'Allies, reinforced by the second line, have gained a victory, and have _ forced the Germans into a position ~ BOiith-dast of Paris, jamming them 4»tw'eenthe forts of the city and the forces of the Allies. This victory may be the beginning of a new tide of events, and a victory from tbis ? new position, which may prove - decisive, is eagerly awaited. There - :- is no doubt that the British Army — for its size— as proved itselt the .finest in the world. Artillery and cavalry have proved themselves su perior to the Germans in every way, one could only wish they could meet in equal numbers. The Germans have recognised the fighting st...

Germany's Dream. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 11 September 1914
Germany's Dream. ' After the Storm ' is the title of a startling publication issued in Ger many a few yeai-8 ago. It is intended to be prophetic. Really, it shows the tremendous confidence of the military caste in Prussia. With the publica tion are two maps ot the world. The first is entitled ' Before the Storm.' It depicts the world exactly as it is at present, with the British and French colonies marked in red, Russia green, the Triple Alliance blue, China and Japan yellow, and American purple. The second map represents the world as it will be (according to Germany) 'After the Storm.' The first thing noticeable is that England and France are shorn of the whole of their colonies, and all that remains are two little Ired spots, representing Great Britain and France. France loses none of her territory in Europe, but all her colonies are colored blue to show that the Triple Alliance has annexed them. Curiously enough, this coincides with what Sir Edward Grey stated in the House of Com...

Ellalong. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 11 September 1914
Ellalong. Jfore honor to our famous district. At the Cessnock Show, last week, the first prize for the best collection ot vegetables was won by Mr. Harry Bridge. We are naturally proud of the capabilities of our soil. Whether it is our boys are be coming imbued with the fighting spirit through reading the war news, or whether it is a united rising of the blood of their forebears your scribe knows not, but certain it is that never since the days when the notorious Yellow Billy, the out law, paraded the roads armed to the teeth, were Ellalong young men, and old men too, possessed of such a desire to shed blood. Coats are taken off daily at every opportunity, and so many challenges have been issued that a kind of civil war is feared. Several fights have already taken place, and many others are to eventuate. Your correspondent has been acting in the role of peacemaker but the job is so difficult that for the sake of those dependent upon me I intend to take out a life policy. It is very ...

Magpie Gossip. ? # ? Experienced in Training. A few days ago a military officer visited Turn worth with a view of en listing volunteers. ^A goodly number presented themselves, and the officer cast his eye over them approvingly with the remark, 'Now all who have had experience in training go to the right, those who haven't to the left.'
