II. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
II. The Reverend Harold Truscott walked gloomily along the White chapel-road, to Aldgate. Here he in tended to take the Underground to St. James' Park, the nearest statiou to his rooms in Artillery Place, but lie passed Aldgate Station without no ticing that he had done so. He was a man sensitive to outside influence, and the cold sleet which was falling thinly depresesd him. And he was bitterly disappointed. Less, perhaps, at hjs rejection1—for that he had al most expected—than because Beatrice Grahame's decision had had a finality which would render it impossible to ask lier again. And to do him justice, though in his weak way he undoubt edly loved her, he was influenced not less by the immense power which he believed a union with her would give hiin in the furtherance *bt his work. For Miss Grahame was a compara tively rich woman and totally inde pendent. lie wondered in a dim sort of way who the man was to whom she had given her love. He was conscious of a reeling that in some w...
Teachers' Summer Schools [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
Teachers' Summer Schools It is said that in the past his tory of Pentridge an enthusiastic warder spent annually his only vacation in the Melbourne gaol picking up hints for the better ment of his future work. The analogy is rather unfortunate ; perhaps, but at the present time hundreds of State School teachers are at work under various experts, in. imitation of the old-time warder, preparing themselves for even better w.ork in the future in their noble professions. There is no gaol atmosphere in the centres, hut there is, undoubtedly, an air of cheerful, persistent hard work. Physical Training. — Two summer schools, one for men at Alexandra Parade under Captain Kolt; and another for ladies at Grattan Street Orderly Rooms under Miss Anderson, Miss May ( Cox, and Lieutenant Webb. 130 teachers are being trained for junior cadet work, the first stage of the Universal Training Act.

AFTER SEVEN YEARS. The Story of a Man who Came Back from the Shadows into the Lovelight. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
AFTER SEVEN YEARS. The Story of a Man who Came Back from the Shadows into the Lovelight. The largo barn-like lia.ll slowly emp tied. A man and a woman stood at one end watching the departure of their guests. A motley crowd they were—men, brul*al-faced, furtive-eyed, lads, thin, pallid of cheek, with the alert, shrinking look of those to whom the touch of the policeman's hand on their shoulder is familiar and im minent; old women, filthy and drink sodden young girls, flaunting bedrag gled finery with blatant abandon. When the fast of the visitors had lurched from the hall the man turned to the woman. He was about forty years of age. a good-looking man de spite the weakness of his mouth and chin. He wore the short black jacket and round collar of a clergyman. "Well, Miss Grahame," he said, "I think we can congratulate ourselves on a distinct advance to-night. They arc becoming more human, less like wild beasts." The woman dabbed at her moist eyes with her handkerchief, then she faced ...

No Telling. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
No Telling. It was visiting day at the prison, and an old lady was being shown around by the governor. While at one cell she ventured to ask what the man was being punished for. "For stealing a piano," the gover nor told her. "And did you steal it?" asked the old lady, turning to the prisoner, sympathetically. "Yes, mu'am," replied the mail, thinking she might be a person of in fluence who would interest herself in his behalf. "I'm sorry to say I did; but in a moment of weakness, lady." "A moment of weakness J" gasped the old lady. "Goodness gracious! What could you have done in a mo ment of strength?" The world is too narrow for two fools a-&lt;iuarrelling. A smile und a "thank you" lor each courtesy shown will give us joy and win for us the esteem that cannot be purchased with silver or £nld.
III. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
III. Beatrice Grahame rose on Christ inas morning with a strange feeling of unrest for which she could not ac count. The words of the Reverend Harold Truscott haunted her, and wondered if she had done well in refusing his offer of marriage. Ro mance had passed out of her life.' Then her memory went back seven years, and her heart ached drearily. She attended the forenoon service at the church of which Mr. Truscott was the vicar. As she took her seat her eyes encountered a man who sat in half shadow on the left of the pul pit. The man was somewhat shabbi ly dressed, his face was thin and seamed, his dark hair mingled with grey. During the course of the ser vice she found her eyes travelling in this man's direction in spite of her self. The Reverend Harold Truscott as cended the pulpit for the sermon. Beatrice, iu listening to him, won dered if this could be the same man with whom she had been iu the habit of working. His face was transfigur ed, all signs of weakness had vanish ed. fo...

Through the courtesy of one 01 our Taunton renders v.-e reproduce the following curious and remark able prophecy from "The Field":— Wo have hitherto given very little attention to the many "prophecies" connected with this war, such as horoscopes heaping astrological hor rors on the Kaiser's head, or warn ings of witches about cursea that were to fall on the House of Hohen- j zollern. But we transcribe the fol lowing very curious forecast because a Belgian lady of our acquaintance heard Adrien Peiadan recitc the French translation iive-aud-t wen ty years age in Brussels, and his son j has kindly written to us from I'aris to say he found the passage among I his father's papers, and described ! it in the "Librairic Moderne" and in j the "Figaro."

FAMOUS SIEGES. Towns Held Against Big Odds. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
FAMOUS SIEGES. Towns Held Against Big Odds. The defence of Liege by 30,000 Bel gians against three German army corps numbering 125,000 will go down to history as one of the most bril liant feats of arms in the annals of Well. The Franco-Prussian War of 1S70-71 was remarkable for its sieges. Ba zaine held out at Metz against the Germans for nearly two months, and finally surrendered with 6000 officers and 173,000 men. For this lie had to submit to court-martial, and was sentenced to twenty years' imprison ment. Afterwards came the siege of Paris, which lasted six months. ..Thousands of shells wdre rained on Mil- city every day by the Germans, and no fewer than 40,000 of the in habitants succumbed to disease and hunger. That lengthy sieges are quite pos sible even in these days of huge guns Is illustrated by Chukri Pasha's gal lant defence of Adrianople last year for 155 days. Then there was the comparatively recent great siege of Port Arthur in the Russo-Japanese War in 1004-5, which...

WHEN AN AUSTRIAN EMPEROR DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
WHEN AN AUSTRIAN EMPEROR DIES. When an Austrian Emperor lias to be buried, the body is, of course, ac companied by a grand military es cort. On arriving at the place of bur ial ttie gates are round locked, and the chief of the escort demands ad mission. The clerical chief demand:1, the name of the dead, whose titles are then given in full. "God knows no such person," is the clerical reply; upon which the baptismal names of the deceased are given, and then the gates are thrown open, and the ceremony proceeds. .Mistress: Jane, I've found my best silk petticoat in your box! Jane: 'Ave yer. mum? And you thought you bad lost it! Fancy that? Tile Phrenologist: Yes. sir; by feeling the bumps on your head I can tell exactly what sort of man you arc. Son of i'lrin: Oi belave it wad givi vo more av an idea phwhat sort of a woman me woifo is. A bigamist is a man who is so fond of looking for trouble that he looks for it twice.

GERMANY FEELING THE PINCH. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
GERMANY FEELING THE PINCH. A German appeal for peace ,-lius been issued by a famous German firm, Darz Brothers, of Altona, near Hamburg, and is in striking contrast to the bragging tone of the German Press and the German military party. The appeal was not issued in Ger many, but was n'ublished in circular ! form, through .Norwegian channels, j and is addressed as a manifesto to j tile peonies of the warring nations. ) It runs:—"The state of mind of at j least a section of the German people has been impressed by the checks that the German armies have suffer ed. The universal war which has now lasted four months excites less and less even the nations engaged in it. The greater or less excitement produced by a victory meets only a cold reception when the frightful consequences of the war, that grows worse every day that passes, are thought of. This war is an insult towards God; a revolt against com mon sense, religion, and humanity; mankind has fallen back again into barbarism, and all...
THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN. Wo delight. to listen daily. From the dawn till set of sun, To the daring, dauntless doings Of the man behind the gun! He will face the foe and, fearless, Fight him fiercely, north and south, Seeking buhble reputation In the booming cannon's mouth. Oil, the rumbling roar of battle Is sweet music to his ears; lie has little love for laughter, And he has 110 time for tears. But the gunner is a goner, And his valor is knocked Hat When he sights the killing glances Of the girl beneath the hat.
MILITARY TERMS EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
MILITARY TERMS EXPLAINED. The average civilian has but an im perfect knowledge ot military and naval terms, and in consequence fre quently experiences difficulty in un derstanding the operations of our forces on land and sea.

Manoeuvre.—To move troops or ships for the purpose of advantage ous attack or defence. Belligerents.—Nations, Powers, or Stales carrying on war; also persons engaged in fighting.

"Pointed." [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
"Pointed." it was at one of the sale-time scrambles. A disciple of the hobble skirt had just been carried off the field, and there had been a few other similar casualties, when a lady with a huge hat fought, her way through to the front. In doint; so she edged into a mild, despectacied gentleman. ".Madame," he murmured. The lady of the enormous hat tool; no no tice, but pressed closer to her goal. "Madame," lie murmured again. "Did you speak, sir?" she asked superciliously. "Yes, I wished to ask you," replied the little man, "whether it would in convenience you too much to remove your hat brim from my eye; I de sire to wink."
The Road to Ruin. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 21 January 1915
The Road to Ruin. A party of motorists touring from Cornwall lost their way one night while proceeding to St. Mawes, and eventually found themselves strand ed willi a burst tyre on one of the hilliest, roughest, narrowest, and most winding roads that even Corn wall produces. While the spare-wheel was being fixed the rain came down in torrents, and language suitable to the occasion was used. Just then a farmer happened to come along. "Can yon tell us where we are?" as';ed Hie owner-driver, calming him self with an effort. "We have missed our way." "You are on the road to Ruan," said the farmer innocently. "It's a mile off." "Oh, I see!" exclaimed the perspir ing motorist. "On the road to ruin, am 1? Well," lie continued, as the humor of the situation dawned upon him, "I may be, and it may lead to destruction—but 1 always thought it was a sight broader and easier going than this."
