The services in question were of a most arduous nature. In the summer of 1763 £he Indians, under the leader ship of Pontine, a chieftain of excep tional ability and influence, treach erously attacked the outlying British forts, which were mainly garrisoned by detachments of the 1st Battalion GOth Royal American Regiment (now 'the King's Royal Rifle Corps). In many instances the garrisons of the forts and settlers in their neighbour hood were barbarously murdered. ; Kort Detroit, an important post , between Lakes Huron and Eric, was besieged for lifteen months before it was relieved.

AMERICAN WIT. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 16 April 1914

AMERICAN WIT. An American newspaper publishes the following example* of American vrit Disappointment comes oftenest to the people who depend entirely upon luck. Many a fellow has made a man of himself even after pome girl has made a fool of him. One way to acquire a reputation for wisdom is to have sense enough to keep your mouth shut. It taken a man with sharp wit# to succeed, but even the dullard may bore his way through life. j Kven when they are all wrapped up in themselves the manners of some people are rather cold. Occasionally a man is almost as proud of a clear conscience as a wo man is of a clear complexion. • Many a fellow who boasts that he is as honest as the day is long for gets that the days are not very long sometimes.

AN ABLE CRITIC. In obtaining the advice, criticism, and impression of so able an .officer as General Sir Inn Hamilton, the Australian Military Forces and tho Federal Government are particularly i fortunate. Indeed, Australia's star i has been in the ascendant from the I first, so far as advisers have been ' concerned ; for in Lord Kitchener, sb | land defence organiser, and Sir Regi nald*-Henderson as naval organiser, we . have' had the benefit of two of the most expert and competent opi nions. in Great Britain. Now Australia is anxious to know whether or not the vast sum annual ! ly spent on her land and era de fences is being wisely and effectively expended. Temperamentally, General Hamilton is peculiarly adapted to the some what difficult task expected of him. His faculty for close observation, his wide experience, and his ready sym i pathv, and his fearless yet' kindly [ criticism, all make him the ideal cri ' tic, mentor and friend.

THE TRANS-CONTINENTAL NORTH TO SOUTH LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 16 April 1914

THE TRANS-CONTINENTAL NORTH TO SOUTH LINE. T * That bugbear of Australian railway travelling,, the break of gauge, is apparently to be again thrust upon us in the Queensland trans-continen- > tal line scheme. The popular imagi- ' nation is apt to consider the con- i version of a narrow to a wider gauge ! us a comparatively simple matter. I Unfortunately this is not so ; such i n project requires the laying of wld:r sleepers throughout the whole dis tance, while bridges and the per- 1 manent ways would all have to he rebuilt. In sonve. districts it would be necessary to choose n totally new • route to obviate engineering difflcul- i tirs. I Two important railway schemes are now occupying the attention of the Queensland Government. One is the linking up of the various coastal lines to give connection between Hrislmnc and the busy northern Ports, and the other is to open up the rich far western country. The latter line would take a route direct from Cainoowcal on the Darkly table la...

QUEENSLAND'S COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 16 April 1914

| QUEENSLAND'S COTTON, r , Many and varied opinions have ( been advanced as to the suitability j of Queensland,' from a climatic | standpoint, to become one of the cot- : ton producers of the United King dom. Since the civil war in the United States—nearly-fifty yearn ngo —England has realised the necessity of promoting the growth of cotton in British Dominions. During that war Lancashire — the j homo of cotton manufactories— was thrown into a condition of /amine ( and misery, owing to the sudden ces- ( sation in the supplies of raw cotton from America. Doth employers and employees agreed that such a pos sible condition of affairs was unten able, and accordingly the British Cottongrowers Association was form ed for the purpose of encouraging cotton-growing in the overseas Do minions. Since its formation impor tant results have been the outcome. Rhodesia, West Indies and Kast Africa have vastly improved and in creased their cotton fields ; indeed, with such success that in four years...
