Y.M.C.A. IN CAMP. As Mr Bradley (Field. Service, director) and Mr Hanlin (social work director) were passing the 13th A,M.C. quarters on Wednes day, the whole of the company lined up and one of their number called for three cheers for good old Y.M., thus showing the appreciation they have for the work done by the Bal larat Association in camp. The - Association at Broadmea dows camp has been specially re quested by the Cammandant to en large their equipment there, furthex demonstrating the wonderful need this association meets. Mr Bradley was made the recipent of several donations through the week, but none more appreciated than that from Major Natrass (£1 .is).

THE LARGEST TORPEDO. The largest size of torpedo at pre sent manufactured by the principal naval powers is the 18in. White head. Its length is 16ft. 1½in. ; its weight about two tons, andT its dia meter 18in. It is not of cigar shape, but is spindle-shaped, and it gets its name from the ray fish named tor pedo. Its effective range depends on the object at which it is discharged, be- - ing from 1,500 3 ards at a rapidly moving object, such as a swift crui ser or torpedo-boat destroyer, up to 6,000 yards at a breakwater or fleet in mooring. The latest form of tor pedo, guided by an instrument called a gyroscope, travels at a rate of thirty knots.-"Ireland's Own." "Do you think Skinner can make a living out there ?" "Make a living ! Why,, he'd make a living on a rock in the middle of the ocean if there was another man on the rock,"

Troop Train Detained CARRIAGES DERAILED. The last contingent' of the 71st Regiment passed through the streets of Queenscliff, on Wednesday, en route for home. The troops were naturally in good spirits, and as they marched along the 71st Regi ment band played one of the Rag time quicksteps, and some of those at a distance from the band could not refrain from joining in singing and whistling the well-known air. They knew that at the end of the proposed journey they would be welcomed by home and friends, and all were merry, but an accident happened to the train, which kept' the young soldiers lingering at the station until a late hour, which, be sides being disappointing and un comfortable, meant that many started the journey hungry. It ap pears that during the -shunting, three of the carriages were run through split rails and one of them left the rails, owing, it is said, to a shunter being unfamiliar with the line. A relief gang was organised by Major Edgar, but the derailed carriage...

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 5 September 1914
-FEDERAL ELECTIONS. To-day is polling day, and al though no doubt electors are aware of the fact, not a great amount of interest has been taken in political events leading up to the contest. This is due, of course, to the all-absorbing and momentous topic of war. Especially so has it been the case in Queenscliff, where, with the troops stationed here, hardly anything else is thought of. Still, every elector has a special duty to preform to-day, and every convenience has been made for voting. Besides the ordinary booths at the Town Hall and Pt. Lonsdale, two other booths have been arranged at the Queenscliff fort and at The Narrows, that the troops in camp may vote. These will, no doubt, be well patronised. The booths are open from 8 a.m. till 8 p.m. Mr Cazaly is assistant returning officer for Queenscliff and Mr Jordan for Pt. Lonsdale.- In consequence of the special booths the vote in .Queenscliff will neces sarily be very great. Samuel A. Joy, Queenscliff.

SOLD ONCE MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 5 September 1914
SOLD ONCE MORE. They met in a beautiful room in a large hotel. One of them was pale as a ghost, the other blushed red as a cherry. Presently. they came together, and although many pairs of eyes were watching them, they kissed. They seemed perfectly happy, but only for a few short, seconds. A big man swaggered towards them. His face wore a determined frown. Raising the stick he carried he struck one sharp blow, Oh, the pale one was sent spinning away. There was no crying ; no grief at the parting. 'Nobody fainted. Nothing happened.! You see billiard balls are used toc that kind of thing.

AHRRIAGE GUSTUOMS IN HOLLAND. ------+- A curious old custom still exists in many provinces of Holland. If a young man is in love with a girl, and wishes to ask her hand in mar riage, he goes about it in the follow-. ing manner. He buys a small sweet cake, and, wrapping it up in soft paper, proceeds to the house of his inamorata; upon his arrival, he is ushered into the midst of the family circle ; without a word, he Walks up to the young lady he wishes to make his wife, and lays the cake on the table before her. The rest of the family affect not to notice anything unusual, and continue their work, or their reading. The young man turns aside and talks to the father or mother on some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing. If she accepts his offer, she takes up the cake and eats it. Sometimes. though Dutch, she is coquettish, and tortures the young man by turning it over and playing with it, before she decides to bite it, and t...
BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 5 September 1914
BiG DIEAL. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. The sudden purchase of the Picca lilly Hotel for the sum of £500,000 Is a remarkable instance of a huge concern changing hands .in a few moments. It was easy enough for Mr. Mallaby-Deeley to draw a cheque ror half a million, but the compli cated nature of the deal is only ap a?rent when one tries to realise what half a .illion of money really is. But half a million down is by no means a record. There have been numerous sales of great English es tates during the last twenty years, and more than £500,000 hus been paid on at least two occasions. One es tate alone-the Kensiagton-realised over £600,000; and the whole trans action did not cover two hours. Even within the past three months two estates changed hands for :1250,000 apiece, Mr. Pierpont Morgan has been as sociated with many big deals Somi years ago he was shown a collection of old masters, and promptly pur chased the lot for one millior pounds sterling, drawing a single cheque for...
