ONCE UPON] rffe ATI ME LR J^_ TN bPORT ;. TYPICAL FIGHTING FACES. ' I remember one night when Al Palzer, a giant Minnesotan, appeared for the first time in New York fistic society. There was a mo mentary hash. Then every spectator turned to every other spectator and exclaimed : . 'Great Scott — what a face for a fighter I' Al Palzer certainly had the ideal 'fiehting face.' His well-rounded jaw was thrust for ward like the ram of a battleship. There was firmness and courage in the lines of his mouth. 'His nose was short, and not too prominent. His eyes were protected by high cheekbones and the brow of a caveman. His neck was like a column, well set on broad and sloping shoulders that promised plenty of strength and hitting power. Palzer's eyes were clear bloc, light, like those of his Viking ancestors, bold and steady. When fight ing they held a Bersark glare. Where is Al Palzer now ? Why. out West again, fighting occasional preliminaries in third rate boxing shows. No other heavywei...

Fahey. a player of tl years, who, at his first appearance on tbe links, had done an 18. It is a good performance for a man of any age and above the scratch mark in handicap, Brisbane, a short time ago. His average round Manly than almost anywhere. I am not at all surprised at Mr. FahcVa round, as his handi cap was 12 medal and 9 bogey at YeeroncpiUy, Brisbane, a short time ago. His average round was SB, and he thinks nothing, of doine 36 loles a dav and carrvinE his own haz of clubs. 'I understand he is willing to back himself against any man of his years anywhere, and I think he may safely do so, even if he offered to give 10 or IS years in. The Manly golfers were very surprised both at his pace and per fection for the tee. The Manly ladies' championship has ad vanced another stage during the week ? Of course.

She served first as a nursing sister, and went through her apprenticeship of danger dur ing the retreat from Galicia.

The officers and men of the battery say she has never shown any sign of fear. She says that being in action is like seeing an exciting play early in life wben one has just begun to go to the theatre. I 'It makes my heart beat fast,' she con tinued. 'Perhaps that is fear; I don't know. I don't know what I shall do when the war is over. It will be so odd wearing skirt...

We went over in grand style, and found nothing MR. JOHN McCURE, Rancbrtck Bowling Club's new President. much in the way till be got into Montauban. Here the place was in an awful mess. Most of the houses had been knocked head over heels. The only ones I saw standing were a couple of cafes. As we came on we saw lots of Germans running out of the back of the village, but when we got into the streets there were plenty of them monkeying about the ruins. We had divided the company up into groups of six, but as we neared the village we all joined up again. 'My five pals were five of the best, and we kept well together. We saw some Huns in a ground floor, so we dropped a Mills bomb through the window and didn't wait for an answer. As we turned the corner we saw a Ger man lying round the end of a wall. He'd got a machine gun, and had made a ...

The Gold Stripe [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 23 September 1916
The Gold Stripe Standing at a corner of Trafalgar Square. London, was a young subaltern of our New Zealand Sprees. An elderly civilian who was passing stopped and looked at him, then gravely raised his hat ana passed on. The subaltern looked surprised, but when the same thing hap pced two minutes later he became distinctly embarrassed. Just above the cuff on bis left sleeve was a thin strip of gold braid, and it was this which attracted the attention of many people. The gold stripe denoted that this young man had faugh* his Empire's battles and had been wounded. Though somewhat shy at the attention which was paid him, the sub altern admitted that he was in a measure glad of it, because he deemed it only just that those who had borne the burden and heat of the day in the firing-line should have f.ome distinctive marie v/aicu would be recognised by the outside world.
"In Germany by Autumn" [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 23 September 1916
'In Germany by Autumn' The Schleswig newspaper Heimdal about eight weeks ago printed from its Berlin corres pondent a long article appearing in the Berlin Press urging the Germans not to listen to the propaganda of those who are going about tbe country demanding a general strike. 'On our vast fronts,' says the writer, 'the Russians, the British, and the French are stand ing, and they will be in Germany by the Au tumn. They are two to one, and across the seas from Japan come enormous masses of am munition and food, while we have to depend on what we produce ourselves. 'The seven days' artillery fire of the British was murderous, and (jerman reports admit the superiority of tlie British artillery. What is left for us, and what confidence can we have that these furious attacks upon the gateways of our Empire will all fail ? It is essential now that nothing should be done to hamper the ex isting organisation, so that Germany would find herself fighting not only against enemies from abro...
"Still the Contemptible Army" [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 23 September 1916
'Still the Contemptible Army' The German Press has given its public very little information about the great offensive on the west It continues to assert that the Ger man line is unconquerable. Late in July the Cologne Gazette cheered its readers with the following passage: — 'England's aim is to overthrow the German Army, which hai been stiffened by two years of war, with an army which has been put to gether under every possible difficulty, which is no doubt patriotic and perhaps brave, but which is composed of quite unmilitarv ele ments, which certainly no longer consists of tho flower of the nation, and which has officers and non-commissioned officers who only pos sess the smallest experience of war. If France is to receive the relief which she needs the English Army must triumph over troops whose leadership and technique compare with the best Continental army, while every man of us is inspired with a passionate desire to come to grips with this our most hated enemy.'

Everything around the nest was smashed to atoms.'
