Mower, managing director of the Sturt wart Engineering Company, Limited, London, gives some highly interesting particulars of the splendid French guns: We have had against, us the army of the Kronpriuz, very superior iu num bers, and very well equipped as regards heavy artillery and aviation. This will explain to you why, having met this army on the north of Longuyon, we had to rctrea down to Vavincouvt, a little to the north of Bar-le-Due. Dur ing this retreat, which was \ ei-y well conducted, we indicted on the enemy enormous losses. Our 75mm- (3isi.) .gun has geen quite a marwl, and has worked wonderfully, chiefly on "the pas sage of the River Chiers, passage of the Meuse near Dun, at Yarenucs, at Clermont-en-Argonne, and also at Van becourt, where one of our explosive shells dropped ...
BEWILDERING RECOMPENSE [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915
BEWILDERING RECOMPENSE Aunt Martha laid down her weekly newspaper, and assuming a pensive at titude, addressed her husband: "Josh," said she,. "I dont see how it is some folks get paid a lot of money for not liftin' a iand. As an example, this paper tells how a certain celebrated tenor was paid 1,000 dollars just for appearin' at a concert in Chi cago." ."I've read such things afore, an' they keep me seratehin' my head too.'' rejoined Uncle Josh, with a sigh. Why, only a couple of week9 ago I read where a well-known prize fighter was offered 10,000 dollars simply to me-1 another fighter in his own town 1"
TURF TOPICS. (Written for [?] Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915
TURF TOPICS. (Written for Heyfield "Herald") With the Caulfield meeting added td Turf history, all is now plain sailing to the V.B.C. campaign, which will be gin on Saturday. Fortunately the rac ,ing so far has not caused many break downs among the horses. A few well engaged gallopers, such, for instance, as Aristsaeus, Audacity, and Averse, who were expected to take an import ant part in the present racing carnival have fallen out of the ranks for the time being owing to mishaps, but for tunately sufficient material of "the right calibre still remains to ensure interest ing racing. it is generally agreed that, judged on paper, this is going to be on© oi the most interesting Newnjarket Han dicaps on record. The list of eligible* bristles with proved ""ftyers, each and every one of which should be equal to making very, slick time over the straight six furlongs. The team seems to have been so well classed by the lian dicapper that it will not surprise me to see at least a half-a-dozen...

Completely Run Down Owing to Indigestion. DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS EFFECT RAPID CHANGE. "I was suffering with indigestion for a period of eighteen months and found no benefit from many medi cines used," writes Mr. John Henry Yarwood, of Forest Lane, oil Bar nard-street, Bendigo. "My health was completely run down through want of nourishment to the system. I could take nothing into my'stomach without retching, on one occasion I went four days without a bite of food. My appetite was gone and I could not eat. In my sheer exhaus tion and. despair I tried Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and can well re member it; an early improvement was discernible, and after taking a fc'.v doses I commenced to make rapid strides towards my old condi tion. My appetite was soon restored to its normal state, and I say Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills achieved a positive triumph in my recovery from indigestion. I cannot speak too highly of your great remedy which stands unrivalled in my estimation." Indig...

- - THE MASTER PASSION. Lillian Ellertou). CHAPTER XL. BELGRAVE AT BAY. "1 here's Deverel," said the Prince. "I want to have a word with him," and with a low bow he stepped down from the dais, ; and mingled' amongst the crowd- which parted before him like two waves. Ida was watching the colloquy with the deepest interest, as if it wore a State secret which were under discus cussion, instead ox racehorse, when a duke came up and carried her off. He was not a particularly interesting . man, and her attention wandered from his dull platitudes to the absorbing question whether Ois Deverel' would ever come, up to her again and hold out his hand in friendly greeting. Perhaps he might. when he saw her placed on a level of apparent intimacy with some of the statliest and most respectable leaders of society. Lady Grandtowers, who waged war to the kiiife with the fast and the flighty gave her an encouraging nod as she passed by, and Lord Hilford, who ranked amongst the steadiest of his peers,...

RANDOM READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915
RANDOM READINGS. (By Silas Snell). I've killed Mother Grundy ! Cut her off by stratagem. You see it is this ?way. Mother Gvundy is a great curse. Innocent, healthy minded people who wish to make the best of their lives, and enjoy themselves in a way to them innocent, ate prevented from doing fo by the fear of what Mother Grundy ?will say. Every act of conduct is teBted, not by the standards of right or wrong, but by the judgment of a bitter, prudish, uncharitable female Pharisee. The consequence is people are driven to be unnatural, insincere, and hypo critical in trying to conform to the artificial standard of a malicious jade, and they either sin in secret or become social outcasts by defying the fiat of the said-Mother Grundy. So it struck me that 1 would be a public benefactor if I killed old Grnndy, as an experi ment, to allow society to expand in the direction of freedom, virtue and happi -^ness. "Evil be to him that evil thinks," I said to myself, and evil be to the hateful G...
FACTORS IN CREAM TESTS. AND SOME USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 February 1915
FACTORS IN CREAM TESTS. AND SOME USEFUL HINTS. ' One of the constant causes of trouble between creameiies aud their patrons is the variation in the cream teat. No one expects to get exactly the same test from different batches of gravity-separ ated cream, but the cream separator is a machine of such perfection that the average patron feels that his cream should run without variation in test as long as the cream screw is unchanged. Recent experiments have agreed per fectly upon at least six different factors that may cause the teats of cream to vary. Thev are The richness of the milk separased J the speed of the separ ator ; the temperature of the milk ; the rate of the flow of milk into the separa tor or bowl; the amount of water or skimmilk used to flush out the bowl, and the condition of the cream when Bam pled. Separation is a mechanical operation ; the setting of the cream screw deter mines that, under normal conditions, a certain percentage of the milk run through the bowl of t...

STATE SCHOOLS PATRIOTIC LEAGUE. The following letter has been re ceived from the Department of Defence by the Director of Education, Mr Frank Tate, M.A. : Department of Defence, Melbourne, 4/1/15, Dear Sir,-With reference to the excellent results already achieved by the State Schools' Patriotic League in Victoria in connection with the supply of articles of clothing and comforts to the troops, as there appears to be a doubt as to the measure of further assistance in this direction that would be welcomed, I am desired by the Minister to state that any help it may be possible to so render during the war will be of undoubted advantage, and will always be welcomed. It must be rempmbered that further contingents are likely to be despatched from time to time, and also that under active service conditions clothing is subjected to abnormal Wear; there need, there fore, hardly be any fear that supplies will exceed demands. I am to mention that the articles which it is now con sidered would p...

AT BUSTARD CAMP. (Special Corespondent ot' the ".Mai; ehestw Guardian.") At Lark's Hill, u bare knoll on Sal isbury Plain, half-way between Ames bury and Bustard Camp, tile lHoodrn winter quarters of the--. Canadians are nearly ready. The Canadians are eagerly looking for the day when they can leave their wet and chilly tents for those stout sheds, which resemble rows of derelict railway carriages. On such a day a« this, when a frost edged wind is scything over the plain, you can sympathise. The men from ifee West don't mind lonliness, although tliey say that Salisbury Plain heats Calgary way for that, and at Lark's Hill they will be a bit nearer such eoopany as the thatched village of Amesburv. can offer. ?

Nevertheless they are happy under canvass, despite the solid month of such dirty weather that they have often worn wet clothes for days. The. fact that there has bee...

THE DAILY ROUTINE. A LOVELY LITTLE HUTCH. An entertaining skoteli of life in tlio British trendies has been forwarded by a captain in the Black Watch to his father, a London clergyman: - "We have a lovely little hutch." he writes, "just room for three to lie down, and the tup is shrapnel-splinter proof. We have had one or two bits landing on it. "We play bridgo every afternoon now that : has come. We have had one or two attacks near, but we are too strongly placed in our bit of the line unfortunately, for them to attack us, as we should get hundreds. "They put their defaulters in the'ad vanced trenches, and one night the Regiment attacked them and bayoneted the lot (only a few), and then found a strong lino behind, -so they had to re tire again. The Algerian troops in the next corps to us gave us to-day all their issue of tobacco-not very good stuff, but kind thought of theirs. So we are giving them a day's issue of our jam in return. They are mad keen to got jam. "Our routine is: 4...

' TURF TOPICS. (Written for " - Heyfield "Herald") We may congratulate ourselves that the stayer among thoroughbreds can still find opportunities even in these days when the sprinter is so highly prized. It would, be a good thing u more money was devoted to the encoui agement of stamina, but in this re spect we should be thankful for small mercies. The craze for short flutters has in late years become ,so great that it is somewhat surprising that an at tempt has not been made to reduce dis tances in our endurance tests,. In Syd ney, the Metropolitan, once a two-miles event, has been reduced to twelve iur loiigs, and the same thing has happened in connection witli tlie TattcrsaHs Thanks to Carlita, who went out and set the pace, we saw a true race for the St. Leger on Saturday.

When a patent medicine is advertised to cure all the ills flesh is heir to, one is in clined to view it with suspicion.

MAFFRA SHIRE COTTNCIL. ENGINEER'S REPORT. Tenders were not . invited for the gravelling near Dean's, Crieff Park, because all the contractors were busily engaged at work. Tenders can be in vited for consideration at the next meeting of the council. On the day following the last meeting of the coun cil I went to .Boisdale in reference to the gravel for the Boisdale to Newry road, as the contractors were carting out gravel for the road to the Little Plain without authority pending a de cision as to Mr Foster's pit. I inter viewed Mr Powell, and the result was permission to take the gravel on Fri .dav, 5th February last.-The log-filled scour on the road at Boisdale between two of Mr Foster's paddocks, complain ed of by Mr Crosbie, vermin inspector, ahould be burnt out, and then filled with earth containing couch grass roots. This would be more satisfactory than erecting a wire netting obstruction across part of the road. The new roller is an excellent piece of Australian work. Effectiv...
