A SUGGESTION FOR THE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
A SUGGESTION FOR THE BOYS. Here, lads, here's a way to get one in on dad. He is slow on the ques ton of lucerne, isn't he? Won't grow on your farm, -h? He knows it's a good thing-all right in some places but no good on your farm--i that the contention ? Well, why not prepare an acre and have a go at it yourselvesP How long would it take you? No time! What would it cost? A few shillings. And suppose it taught you, and, incidentally, dad, that ten acres would make a big difference to the family income, vould it be worth itP Have a go at it.
SWISS AMAZONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
SWISS AMAZONS. Switzerland has mobilized to defend her neutrality. Swiss women want to fight by the side of their men folk, be lieving that war is inevitable, and many of the women are splendid rifle shots. In the Canton of Aragau it is reported that two young women in uniform, with their hair cut off, tried to be enrolled recently, but forgot the fact that they had to undergo a medical examination, which ordeal they refused to face. How they obtained their uniforms and arms is not known. In the streets, trains and cafes you can often hear the phrase from Swiss women, "I don't mind going to the war and fighting. My husband has gone; what can I do alone." In the Alpine districts, and in the small villages in Switzerland, the women, old and young, aided by old men, are gathering in the crops slow. ly, even small children helping, as the male population have disappeared to join the army. Old women "experts'" may be seen cutting the hay. Both the grain and fruit crops are very good in S...
INCREASING CALF REARING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
INCREASING CALF REARING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. Various circumsitances in the United Kingdom have recently combined to direct attention to the desirability of rearing a larger number of cows so as to insreaso the home supply of fat and store cattle. There is first of all, the improved prices for beef, which are likely to cotinue, because the farmers of North America hare practically: ceased to contribute this article to British markets, and the States now compete for a portion of the surplus from South America. So far the Argentine has been able to meet the demand, but there are indications that it may be found difficult to maintain the output on the necessary scale. The meetings of several of the South Am erican companies have shown 'that pro fits have diminished owing to the high-. er value of the cattle,- and unless there is a substantial profit, the impetus to he requisite large expansion will: be lacking. Then ,the interruption of trade from Ireland, owing to the foot and mouth ...
THE EYES OF KITCHENER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
THE EYES OF KITCHENER. (By O. Henry, in "Everybody's Journal.") Dulcie worked in a department store. She sold Hamburg edging, or China dogs, or automobiles, or other little trinkets such as they keep in depart ment stores. Of what she earned, Dul cie received six dollars per week. The remainder was credited to her and de bited to somebody else's account in the ledger kept by the Recording Book keeper. One afternoon at six, when Dulcie was. sticking her hatpin within an eighth of an inch of her medulla oblong ata, she said to her chum, Sadie; "Say, Sade, 1 made a date for dinner this evening with Piggy." "You never did!" exclaimed Sadie admiringly. "Well, ain't you the luck one. Piggy's an awful swell; and he always takes a girl to swell places. He took Blanche up to the Hoffman House one evening, where they have swell music, and you see a lot of swells. You'll have a swell time, Dulce." Dulcie hurried homeward. Her eyes were shining, and her cheeks showed the delicate pink of life's...
PARIS STORY OF AN HOTEL MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
PARIS STORY OF AN HOTEL MANAGER. H':e's been shot; overia--hundred spies have been sbot-at Vincennes- and La Muette." . This Frenchman was speaking of.'an -hotcl mafiager I -used to - know, a little writes the Paris correspondent of the London "Daily Mail." His hotel is off the Champs-Elysees, a place of soft carpet and inlaid wood, marble and palms. He was one of those suave, self-possessed German or Austrian hotel managers who make on you an uncanny impression of omniscience. They speak every European tongue without a trace of faltering; they know the name of the best hotel, and are personally acquaintrd with ts manager in every city of Europe. They can give you detailed directions for the most complicated journey without open ing a single time-table, and their in formation is right to the last particle. They know at what station the dining car is put on, and- they impress you to remember that the train leaves Klein stadt-am-Fluss twenty minutes earlier this month than the time me...

TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
--TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.") One of the most welcome items of re cent news is that "the tote" is now considered almost a certainty in New South Wales. The Holman Govern ment is in need of revenue, and the totalisator is one means of raising the wind. A 23, per cent. State tax on the betting turnover in New South Wales would total up into quite a re spectable total at the end of the year. No Government faced with a financial problem can afford to miss a chance like this. It is a perfectly legitimate way of raising funds, and besides, the bet ting public almost to a man favor the "tote." Whether it is intended in New South Wales to follow the Westralian ex ample by allowing the totalisator and the bookmakers to compete against each other remains. The extremists will perhaps want to do without the bookmaker altogether, but there is per haps no reason to go quite that far. A limited Ring in addition to the "machine" might be the better idea. Epsom provided the programme for suburban...
CHATTER. I chatter, chatter, as I go. A CAMP SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
CHATTER. I chatter, chatter, as I go. A CAMP SUNDAY. "Never been in camp!" said the voice on the telephone. "Not been in camp-come down with me to-morrow." There being, as it seemed, no two ways about it-we went. Dust-colored tents on a flat, bare plain. Not half the tents and not half the dust that were there before, we are told, Not half the men either. That is in number. For the rest, as dear old Dogberry says "Comparisons are odorous," but we heard what the Colonel thought of his men, and what other folk thought of the second con tingent, and perhaps it would not be wise to put in print lest the said con tingent be told an become unduly up lifted.. That reminds me, We saw some of. the work of the Cheer Up Our Boys" Society. Very Food it was. I have only one fault to find with that so ciety, and that is that its name is a little misleading. Firstly, they are not boys, but men, stalwart ones at that, Secondly, so far as I could see, they did not show the slightost symptom of wanti...

HE OBEYED. "Did you deliver my message to Mr. Smith ?" asked .the .merchant. New Office Boy: "No sir; he was out, and the office was locked up." "Well, why didn't you wait as ' told- you ?" "There was a i:otice on the door, .r, sayng 'Return at orce,' so I came an quick as I could!" Concerning the Commonwealth note issue, the Minister of Defence, replying to a question *n the Senate on Fri day, said it was a fact that £500,000 in notes had been issued recently and placed in circulation, but it was not true that most of the notes had not been absorbed and returned to the Treasury.
AUSTRALIA AND THE INDIAN MUTINY. THE LAST LINK SEVERED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 27 November 1914
AUSTRALIA AND' THE INDIAN MUTINY. THE LAST I INK SEVERED. One :of the last links connecting Aus tralia. iith the Indian mutiny of 1857 Was snapped: ii Perth, :Western- Aus tralia,.a few days ago, when Pte. Wil 'liam Henry. Symons, formerly of the isteBittalioa~of -tie Duke of-Cornwall's. Light Infantry, answered to the roll call for the last time. Few who no ticed the tall figure of'thd-old comnfis sionaire standing at the entrance to the Economic Stores, at the corner of Hay and William Streets, Perth, had any idea that as a young man he played his part with the "illustrious garrison' in that magnificent defence of Lucknow which lasted for five months, until the brave defenders were finally relieved by Sir Colin Campbell. Pte. Symons, who was 77 at the time of his death, joined the 32nd regiment at Plymouth in 1856; and shortly afterwards left for India.' When the mutiny broke out the following year, the 32nd was sta tioned at Lucknow, and it was upon it that the whole defence of t...
