AMUSING INCIDENTS. "Truth Will Out." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
AMUSING INCIDENTS. "Truth Will Out." A local preacher, who was in the habit of taking liis wife with liim to his preaching appointments, said, on arrival at the chapel, "My dear, you go in there; you will be all right. 1 must go around to the vestry." In the vestibule the wife was met by a kind-hearted steward, who, after giving her a hearty welcome and a hymn-book, conducted her to a com fortable seat. At the close of the service the same kind-hearted stew ard gave her a hearty shake of the hand, adding how pleased he would be to see her at the services each Sunday. Then, whispering" he said: "But let me tell you, we don't get a duffer like this in the pulpit every Sunday."
Sociable to the Last. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
Sociable to the Last. Otice there was a well-to-do Irish- ' mail who found himself about to pass away. He sent for his old friend O'Connor to come and make his will. Everything was in readiness, and the dying man said: "Put down £50 for masses for the repose of my soul." The man scratched away, and then O'Connor said: "What next, Mr. Riley?" "Put down £250 to the Dublin Or phan Asylum." "What next, Mr. Riley?" "Put down £1000 for my brother Pat; he don't deserve it, but I can't carry it with me." "What next, Mr. Riley?" ' "Put down that I leave my books 1 and pictures to the Blind Institution." Finally, the dying man said, faint ly, "I think this is all I have to will." O'Connor looked at the old bank book, and said, "No, Mr. Riley; there are ten pounds yet." "O'Connor, put down that tin pounds to speqd with the boys at my funeral." "Mr. Riley, shall I put it down to spend going to the funeral or coming back?" The dying man lay quiet for a mo ment, then replied, "O'Connor, put that ...
A HUMANE AIGRETTE INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
A HUMANE AIGRETTE INDUSTRY. The latest "Webster" dictionary says of aigrettes that "they grow only during the breeding season, so that in obtaining them not only are the parent birds killed, but the young are left to starve. The egrets pro ducing them are, therefore, fast be coming extinct." While this state ment is true of the aigrette industry as heretofore generally conducted and the cruelty of aigrette hunting has led to widespread legislation in tended to discourage traffic in these feathers, it appears that a perfectly humane method of obtaining the lat ter has been evolved in India. In the "Journal" of the Bombay Natural ■History Society, Mr. George Birch, assistant commissioner of the pro vince of Sind, reports that egrets have been very extensively domesti cated in that province. The birds are bred in captivity, and are pluck ed of their "ospreys" or aigrettes without suffering any injury, "just as in the case of ostriches. The condi tions of captivity make them more produc...
The Place of Dragons CHAPTER VII. Tells of Two Men. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
The Place of Dragons By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. Tells of Two Men. The stranger, whose age was about ' forty-five, went on in the direction of the post-office in the Church Square. Should I dash hack, overtake him and claim acquaintance? Or should I keep my knowledge to myself and watch in patience? A single, second had I in which to decide. And I decided. I turned back upon my heel again as though I had not recognised him. But what could that man's pres ence mean in that little East Coast town? Aye, what indeed? I tried to think, to conjecture, to form some theory—but I was too con fused. Lola had been there—and now that man who had just passed! Along the narrow, old-fashioned jetty street I strode for some yards, and then turned and retraced my steps till I saw him across the old churchyard entering the post-office. Treeton was coming up in my di rection, little dreaming how ne...

Scarsdale News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
At Monday's meeting of the Borough Council Or Edgar moved that the mili tary authorities be written to, pointing , out the suitability, of the Scarsdale dis trict as a military camp. Black Hill •would be a splendid spot. The men could have plenty of tunnelling and min ing and other training. Or Sharp second ed the motion. The Mayor (Or Daniel) said the soldier3 would learn more about sapping and. mining in one day than they would at Broadmeadows in 40 years. The motion was carried. A letter.from,the Parliamentary Re cruiting Committee (Mildura district), forwarding a copy of resolutions for con sideration of the recruitiag committee of the Scarsdale district, was dealt with at tfrfTTnekting oF the council or» Monday. The Mayor observed that it was a good thing to have senior cadets fully trained. They had been trained in the cities, but not in the country; and it would be a splendid thing for the young men from 18 to 26 years in the country if they were taken in hand and thoroughly ...
WHY THE WAR CANNOT BE PRESERVED IN MOTION PICTURES [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
WHY THE WAR CANNOT BE PRESERVED IN MOTION PICTURES Britain has been adversely criticis ed (says Ernest A. Dench in the "Scientific American") even by its own countrymen, for not availing it self of motion picture photography to bring the great war before future gen erations. But despite all these well meant appeals, the British authorities have been abdurate to taking action in the matter. Their attitude, in less informed quarters, has been attribut ed to their characteristic conservat ism, but such is not the case this time. For many years, British scientists have been, studying the problem of whether the film will retain its good properties after years of age. They have made the discovery that after an unused film has been placed in an airtight vault for five years fungoid growths cover the celluloid, thus prov ing that, when put to the actual test, the proposition of preserving motion pictures a hundred years or more can be dismissed right away. As yet the chemicals used to devel...
Chemist Tens How to Stop Indigestion. SAYS USE OF PEPSIN LEADS TO CHRONIC DYSPEPSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
Citiisi Tens How 10 stog iQOiggSliSl. SAYS USE OF PEPSIN LEADS TO CHRONIC DYSPEPSIA. "It is a wonder some of ns have stomachs left," remarked a well-known chemist recently. While all chemists sell a score or more of stomach remedies for which there is a wide demand, most of them are just pepsin pills, which aid digestion of the food that is in the stom ach- at the moment. They have no curative or. strengthening effect on the stomach at all, and, of course, do not reach or cure the cause. So the same people keep on coming here and buying and using them until they are real chronic dyspeptics. When anyone really asks ray advice, I swear by and recom mend ordinary biaurated magnesia, which does'nt digest the food at all, but acts as an antacid and sweetens the sour, fer menting contents of the stomach. That stops the pain,- heartburn, sour rising, wind, floating, fulness, etc., in just a few minutes, and the stomach digests its food without help or trouble, which is the proper way. u Do...
Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
Cycling & Motoring. U " When a motor cyclist has trouble with a broken engine valve he seldom realizes what an enormotis strain it works un der. It has been figured out that a mechanically operated valve in a motor cycle engine opens against a total pres sure of from anything from 40 to 120lbs. according to the area of its head. For example, a valve with an area of |/sq. inch opening against a pressure of 40Ibs. at the rate of 10 times per second (1,2000 r.p.m.) has to overcome resis tance equivalent to 240,0001bs. per minute. It's no wonder they sometimes break. Experiments were recently made in Indiana (U.S.A.) of a system of illu mination in order to demonstrate the practicability of motor car racing at night on a big scale. The test proved a great success. Lights of the type used in contracting and railroad work for emergency operations at P'ght were placed at.ihtervals about tfra track, Each light wns supplied with a cylinder of dissolved acetylene, and developed a ligh...
BRIUSH IN GERMANY. BEANS AND ROTTEN PEAS AS FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
BRIUSH IN GERMANY. BEANS AND ROTTEN PEAS AS FOOD. The "Echo de Paris" relates that a great nurtfber'of prisoners captured in •recent engagements declared that they had a certitude that the war would be over in from one to two months, for they said they are absolutely tired out. A civilian prisoner has managed to write a letter in the dialect of Brit tany, which closely resembles the 'Welsh dialect, to his father, in which he explains the real conditions which prevail in the camp in which he is in terned, together with many British prisoners. He says:—"Every day someone is struck or wounded by the guards with their bayonets, or with the butt ends of their rifles. Here we are more unhappy than if we were in penal servitude. I have hardly any money left, and I wonder what will happen to me if I liave to live on the piece of bread as thin as paper that they give us every five days. In the morning they give us dirty black water which smells like molasses. At noon we get beans and rotten ...

FsE&IE^lBE^ WHE^ ¥GU YOU GET HEALTH TOO I A PROFESSIONAL NURSE well known throughout Western Australia, writes her opinion. NURSE ALICE WILKINSON, 21 Hyde Street, Nth. Perth, sends tii# letter : " I have spent many years in my profession as a nnrse, both here and in Victoria. 1 have nursed the sick of all descriptions, and some have been very low and weak. The question always arises in the mind of the nurse what is the best medicine for a patient when thoroughly run down or to keep them from getting low and prostrated.

WAR WEDDINGS. Minister Pleads that Soldiers Should Go Unhampered into Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
WAR WEDDINGS. Minister Pleads that Soldiers Should Go Unhampered into Battle. The Rev. McVittee, of Rozelle, Syd ney, is conducting a campaign against war weddings. Marriages contracted just before a soldier departs for the front, says Mr. McVittee, are not un derstandable. Yet there were hun^ dreds of such marriages. The chances were that a soldier would not return, and a widow was unnecessarily made. On the other hand, it might be that the soldier would be maimed for life, and under the circumstances the union would not be as happy as if the hus band was in good health and strength. To a great extent he would be an en cumbrance. To the outsider tnere was no apparent reason for such mar riages, unless it was the selfishness of a woman who Avas anxious to bene fit financially through being the wife of a soldier or a soldier's widow. He would ask the young women to be brave, and to let the soldiers go forth to fight unhampered with the cares of the marriage tie.
ENDERBY'S LONE FURROW [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
ENDERBY'5 LONE FURROW i. He gave lier the pet name of "Tin tacks" before lie had known her a month. To other people she was Miss Kitty Longstaff, but Ralph Enderby always aimed at being different from other people, and he' had a way of making himself very much at home, especial ly with a girl to whom he took a fancy. And he had certainly taken a very strong liking for Kitty. In the original the nickname he had given her was intended to be compli mentary. Her wit was so bright, and her repartee so pointed, and her pene tration so keen that the nickname seemed really most appropriate. Later on he thought it singularly fitting, from another point of view, when he man aged to rouse her anger. Anyone who has tried the experiment of treading upon those useful little articles will surely appreciate the position. Tintacks was a jolly girl, full of fun, but smart and intelligent enough to make a fitting companion to any aver age man. That she was what might be called pretty goes without sayi...

TARTAR HORSEMEN. THE "WILD" DIVISION. (By Count Ilya Tolstoy.) (Count Tolstoy is a son of Leo Tol stoy, the. great Russian novelist, and has been in Galicia during the pre sent war.) I made my first acquaintance with the Caucasian Native Division in Lvov, when the commander of • the corps was reviewing it. It was in the very centre of the town, in front of the best hotel, at noon, when all the streets were thronged with people and , the hig town was in full flow. One after another the regiments rode past in marching Older, and each seemed finer than tte one be fore, and the whole town for a full hour gazed admiringly at this wild, original and till-then-unseen spec tacle. Mixing wita the crowd, I watched with interest the impress.on which this long, living line produced on the inhabitants. While I looked at the rapt expres (sion of their faces, which appeared spell-bound with amazement, and heard the abrupt ejaculations of delight, something within me was pleasantly tickling iiij -r...

II. London had lost its attractions for Ralph Enderby, He decided to leave it for a few months, and after some deliberation fixed on Jersey as his des tination. It was true he was engaged on a painting which he hoped might find its way to the wall of the Academy, but now he did not feel very keen about it. After all, what is Fame? What did it matter whether he became fam ous, and his name was handed down to posterity as a great artist? What, in fact, did anything matter to a man who was destined to spend the remain der of his days in that splendid soli tude to which only great minds can at tain! . Nevertheless, he had his picture packed, and all his colors and brushes, so that he could go ahead with it while on holiday if he felt so inclined. But it so happened that none of these things were unpacked until some months later, when he brought them back to his studio. Enderby soon found himself com fortably established in a large and ex tensively patronised boarding-house at Havre des ...

One Purpose Only. A suburban clergyman liad for some time been displeased- with the quality of the milk supplied by the local milk man. Although a mild-mannered man who hated to complain, he at last de termined to remonstrate with his milk man for supplying such stuff. "I've been waiting to see you with reference to the milk, Cox," he be gan mildly, one morning. "Yes, sir," answered the milkman uneasily. "I only wanted to say," continued the clergyman, "that I use the milk for a dietary purpose exclusively, not for christenings."
