THE HORRORS OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 18 February 1915

THE HORRORS OF WAR. The following is contained in a letter written to a local resident by a lieut enant in a Warwickshire Regiment, and desciibes the scene of a fierce en counter between the British and Ger man troops near La Basse. He and a friend of the same regiment passed over the Hcene of the encounter a few hours after it had taken place. He says : - As wo approached the hill, looking calm aud peaceful in the moonlight, I was struck by the absence of any sound, which seemed to tell of the horrors which, but a few hours before, had been enacted within a hundred yards of us. We crossed a couple of small paddocks, with hedges around them, before we began to see signs of the late battle. Here and there trees with their limbs torn and shattered by shells, and rough irregular holes torn in the ground by shell fire. Then a dark object amid the surrounding silver grey of the moonlight, which, as we I approached, took the shape of a hud dled human form; the distorted face and bloodshot...

PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING Melbourne Letter nnd other interest ing items will be found on fourth page. On Sunday lust two motor loads from Hey field visited Prospect Beech, and had a most enjoyable outing. The first portion of the trip to Sale occu pied 45 miuutes, and the next 23 miles over a heavy road was dono in five minutes tinder the hour. The return run in the cool of the evening was par ticularly enjoyable. Those who had not previously been to Prospect were surprised at the number of substantial houses which have been erected. Mr Cooper, of Muffra, has recently erected a very fine bungalow, and Mr French has also had buiit a very comfortable house, appropriately named 'La France.' In all, there must be nearly 150 houses and tentB on the Reserve, but the visi tor cannot help being struck by the irregular manner in which the town ship has been laid out, the houses facing all points of the compass.

HOW TOMMY ATKINS MADE TEA \K A BOULOGNE TRAM. "A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE" WHICH NEARLY LED TO A MASSACRE. "Ncbody sings the English tmuni tion of the Marseillaise-or what ho happens to know of it-with more thoroughness or energy than Tommy Atkins; and nobody thinks more of the French nation-in the bulk. But there must be many Frenchmen on the other side of the Cbanne to irhour the English Tommy is a terrible mystery. They like him; but they must be look ing at him with wonder, and mun ing tlieir heads. ' This" letter will tell the rest of the story.

REPULSE OF THE PRUSSIAN GUARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915

REPULSE OF THE PRUSSIAN GUARDS. A French correspondent, describing tlie British repulse of the Prussian Guard at Zonnebeke, near Ypres, last month, says: The English staff were dining when a. despatch bearer an nounced the approach of strong columns of the enemy with cavalry acting as a screen and supported-by ten batteries of artillery aijd two heavy guns. The English general succeeded in seizing a strategic point on the railway before the enemy and opened fire with his bat teries. The Prussians continued to ad vance, the firBt rank firing lying down, the second kneeling, and the remainder standing. Suddenly their ranks opened and machine-guns appeared. The situa tion looked critical, but the English general ordered a bayonet charge. One colonel headed his regiment shouting, "For Honour and England!" The op posing ranks met with a terrible shock. The bayonets of the Allies and the en emy frequently went home at the same moment. The ground and the uniforms and faces of the combatant...

MEETING OF PROTEST. i At ft meeting of beet growers held at Maffra lust week, the following reso lutions were carried unanimously : "That in the opinion of our lengue,. based upon the newspaper reports of the proceedings of the Royal Commis sion on Closer Settlement, in which reference waB made to sugar beet cul ture,' the attitude of some members of the Commission is unwarrantably hos tile to sugar beet culture in this district, and that the members of our league are convinced that this attitude ia largely due to incomplete and erroneous information." "That a young industry which has in one year increased its acreage of volun tarily grown beet from 375 acres (season 1913 4) to 1111 acres (season 1914-5), and its number of growers from 64 (who planted beet for the for mer season) to 130 (who ha so planted beet for the present season) can scarcely be said to be moribund."

HOW KHAKI WAS DISCOVERED. FORTUNE FOR A LIEUTENANT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915

HOW KHAKI WAS DISCOVERED. FORTUNE FOll A LIEUTENANT. Khaki, the color which will render our troop? so difficult to see, was dis covered by a happy accident. The British troops in India wore a cotton uniform which, when it was new, was khaki in color, but after a vsiit to the laundry was indescribable. A Man chester business man, discussing this defect^ remarked casually that a for tune awaited the man. who could find a khaki dye that neither sun, soap, nor soda would fade. A young offi cer heard the remark, hired a skilful native dyer ,and began the search. Years passod in fruitless experiments till one day, turning over a heap of rags, relics of their failures, they chan ced' upon one piece which was still khaki ,though the laundry had worked its will. But it had received no spe cial treatment, so far as they knew, ex cept that it had fallen into a metal dish, That was the secret. The metal of the ilish aud the chemicals iii the dye had combined to produce that fadeless khaki color...

MOVING PICTURES AND THE WAR. ENTERPRISING OPERATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915

MOVING PICTURES AND THE WAR. .ENTERPRISING OPERATORS. j In this present war journalists and j kinematograph operators have- been special!)', banned by the military au-. thorities of all the conflicting forces neither one nor the other is officially permitted within miles of the front. Nevertheless, some vivid battle stories have reaehed London from some of the numerous English and American war correspondents in France anil Belgium, and many London '.'picture houses" are showing excellent battle films which are obviously the genuine thing, taken on tlio spot, with no suspicion of '' fake.'' The secret of how these -feats are accomplished in spite of the military ban ,was~ revealed to the London cor respondent of the Melbourne "Age" by Mr. S. Hill, a Londoner,- who has been acting as special courier for a number of the London papers since -the war began, going backwards and for wards between Belgium and Prance and London, bringing '' war copy'' to Fleet street from the war corresponde...

BEET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915

BEET NOTES. (From a Correspondent). In the MafiVa district the beet crops are looking very \vo!l, in !<pite o! the continued dry spell. In fact, the beet crop isi the only one of any consequence throughout the whole district. Fanners should profit by the lesson which the culture of sugar beet has demonstrated this season. has survived, and. will prove a profitable crop fvhure others have failed owing to the drought. Harvesting operations will commence probably about the second or third week in March. In the Hey field district, some of the (I might term them) experimental crops look very well indeed. In some cases the crops look poorly, but this has resulted through absolute neglect. The land in the Heytield district ia of' first claBS quality, therefore it ia cap. able of producing first class results if the necessary attention is given to the proper culture of sugar beets. No far mer can expect good resultB if he neglects the proper cultivation. This is applicable no mat...

THE BOOK FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915

THE BOOK FARMER. It is pleasant to note that the book farmer is rapidly taking the place of the rule-of thumb man in most of our agricultural sections. The day is past when our farmers do a thing simply because their fathers did it in that manner. Had our ancestors always followed the rule of doing as their fathers did we should still be a Lit of howling savages in the woods and on the plains, eking out a precarious exis tence by capturing such wild animals and reptiles as came our way. The modern farmer is an educated man-he is a scientist. He understands the nature of his soil, studies its re quirements, and knows how to haudle it. He realises that, in order to gee the best results, he has to resort to the best nntiiods and hare the latest labor saving appliances. The moss-back far mer is rapidly becoming a thing of the past, and it will not be long before the man who farms by the zodiac and plants by the changes in the moon will be re garded as a curiosity. In farm life the law o...
