When she appeared the little kitten ran in ahead of her, and the tiny maiden jumped up and down and screamed to the top of her voice: "Oh, Kitty, go out, quick." The miother was horrified, and said, "Daughter, what makes you act sol" "Wall, mother, dad said last night 'that Mr. Black's sermons were enough to make a cat sick,' and I don't want mine sick." -" , it

KRUPPS. THE BACKBONE OF THE GERMAN ARMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
KRUPPS. THE BACKBONE OF THE GEIRMAN ARMIES. The present war has as yet brought forth no great figure among the Ger man armies in the field. Von Kluc? and Von Hindenbufg, efficient generals, though they may be, have 'displayed no pre-eminent qualities such as would range them beside their great forbears, Blumenthal or Von der Tann. Yet there is one German name that, since the outbreak of the war-and for many years past whenever the German Army has been mentioned-has been con stantly on men's lips. That is Krupp's. Over-sanguine as men are in the first flush of relief after a period of acute suspense, people are already wondering how far the world-famous Krupp works at Essen are distant from the line of advance of the Allied armies. If air men could sally out and destroy the vast hive of industry which has given Germany her mighty siege guns, her deadly field-pieces, her innumerable quick-firersl Krupp's has been called the Army and Navy Stores of the nations. Essen is Krupp's; Krupp'...

GERMANY'S INTERNAL DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
GERMANY'S INTERNAL DANGERI.::! That the internal danger of Germany arising from the exclusion of raw mate rial for her factories is recognised in Berlin to be a terribly serious one is evident from what the German Social-. ist organ Vorwaerth says:-I'tIt is not wise," declares the Vorwaerts, "to underrate the danger of the war last ing a long time. With regard to food, one or two years do not matter, but the supply of raw materials for our industries is not a thing to be regarded rlghtly. Germany needs an enormous import of wool, cotton, silk, flax, tim- ber, oil, copper, lead, zinc, leather, and rubber if a great part of the country's factories are not to stand still. The' English have not dared to blockade our harbors for fear of our mines, torpedo boats, and submarines. But the inter national law of maritime warfare gives them other .means of cutting off ospr imports. Unemployment is already affecting hundreds of thousands-nay, millions. The Kreuz Zeitung has al- ready coined the...

GERMAN WAR SURGERY. ANOTHER BUBBLE PRICKED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
GERMAN WAR SURGERY. ANOTHER BUBBLE PRICKED. Mir. S. Osborn (says the "Lancet" of September 12th) has been in charge of a Red Cross contingent in Belgium since the commencement of the war. The following notes by one of his as sistants reached us on September 9th, from Brussels: " We have just returned to Brussels after spending a week at Gembopux treating German Casualities from the battlefields around Namur and Aizeau.. During the period about 350 Germans passed through our hands, and alto gether we must have seen 1500 or more eases. At first some of the Germans refused to be treated by us, and as we were not allowed to help the wounded prisoners we had time on our hands in which to observe the German medical corps on active service. It cannot be said that their methods impressed us favorably. Among the cases that came under us for assistance, wounds of the extremities were at least three times more common than in other parts, the upper extremity suffering equally with the lower. In...

HODDLE'S CREEK. (From Our Own Corrospondent.) Neither -the war. ihe weather. nor any other cause has been allowed to lainp our spirits on the Creek during the Christmas and New Year season. On Boxing night a, very enjoyable evening was spent at the local hall. Song and dance made the evening pass merrily and all too quickly. Among those contrib titing to the evening's entertain ment were Miss Gtevens. Messrs Ewart, and Hlolly. songs; MIr E. Kiddle, rccitation. Dance music was provided by Messrs J. Burrows (vio lin) and S. \orly (accordeon), andl Mr H.L Ewarx ably discharged the duties of M.C. Nor were the chil dren forgotlen, as during some of the ipltervals such games as Puss in the Corler. Oranges and Lelm ons. etc.. were started for their benelit. This seemed to make the adults grow young again, if one mightl judge by the way in i which they= joined ill Oranges and Lemll ons. If this game is to become ii feature of our' socials, we shall have to enlarge our hall to inake room for...

SLATEY CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
SLATEY CREEK. (From Our Own'Correspondent,:) Quite a. gloom was cast over tie district last week when the sad news of the death of I \Ir Clarence (Bert) Bastin, son of Mr and Mrs 13astin, of I-Hazeldene. became known. Deceased met his death while bath ing at Sandringham. and it is sur nslised that he was caught by the treacherous undertow and carried out. The body was not recovered for forty minutes after lie was miss ed. and all efforts to restore life were unavailing. A coincidence in the sad affair was that. Mr E. Mar de.n, who took, a very prominent part in recovering the body, and lalso ill trying to restore animation, was ail old playmate of deceased, and at onle time lived close to him at; Iazeldene. It was not until the next day th-it he discovered the fact. Deceased was a bright, intelligent young fellow, and gen eral regret is expressed throughout the district at his Sad end. The annual platy Creek . picnic weas held at the Little Yarra on New Year's Day. u?nd was by far t...

A GERMAN SPY. HOW "TRUTH" IS MANUFACTURED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
A GERMAN SPY. HOW "TRUTH" IS MANUFAC TURED. He came into Rotterdam from Berlin 'yesterday (writes Mr. Stephen Black in the Daily Mail, under date August, 27), a foxy, fluent German, curiously like a bat in appearance. He spoke to me at length to-day in the office of a Dutch friend, and to his swift flow of lan guage I listened. Afterwards I gath ered his history and his mission, which . will state immediately is as follows: (a) Arrange on behalf of "a German committee," whose headquarters or members did not transpire, to issue gratis an ample supply of photographs, illustrated papers, and war post-cards, to the Dutch press and the world; (b) Make similar arrangements with regard .to all news of the war in neu tral countries. In his own words, send out the truth made in Germany. This curious missioner was liberally endowed with passes and letters of in troduction from a benevolent Govern ment. He had unique opportunities, so he said, for obtaining the truth, al though I could not hel...
RUSSIAN ORANGE BOOK. HOW GERMANY FORCED THE PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
-RUSSIAN ORANGE BOOK. HOW GERMANY FORCED THE PACE. The responsibility for the outbreak of war is further fixed on Germany and Austria-Hungary in the papers of the Orange Book published by the Russian Foreign Office. The first telegram, dated July 23rd,. reports the presentation to Servia of the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum. The Austro-Hungarian Government care fully chose a moment when the Servian Premier, M. Pashitch, was absent from Belgrade, and demanded a reply within 48 hours. M. Pashitch returned to the capital with the utmost speed, and in the meantime the Prince-Regent of Servia addressed a pressing-.appeal to the Czar not to dissociate himself from the fate of the Servian kingdom. M. Sazonoff, the Russian Foreign Minister, at once instructed the Russian Charge d'Affaires at Vienna to inform the_ Austro-Hungarian Government that the period of 48 hours was "altogether insufficient to allow anything useful to be done to smooth away the complica tions that had arisen," and to dec...
