The writer has been under their fire, has seen with Ilis own eyes how tlhey manoeuvre, and is aible to describe how it feels to have a bomb droppled so olose to you that you canl photograph its explos'on. The Italian airships camle 'P II.," circled over the toawn and began tc drop bombs. 'Thelse they planted as often as possible in the market-place, f.illiig townlspeople. Indeed, one of thie firsth victims was a baby, whose stomach was ripped open and all the ent,ails exposed. This causes a re flection that hears upon thie future of war. No civilised nation allows its nrly or its nivy to open fire at rau dora upon the Ipopularion. The mili tary operaltions are directed against colinlatants and fortifications. But the prinlcipal aim of aerial warfare, taking this asan example, would seem to be to cause general panic...
FARM HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 1 May 1914
FARM HANDS. At a meeting of the Corrabie branch of the South Australian Bureau ol Agriculture, Mr. V. It. Weston reau a paper, in winch he said: "lu a district like our own it is, in the average season, difficult to ob tain suitable labor at an average wage, but I am sure that with attention to the welfare of those we employ we will not only keep the good employees we have, but will in time have a bigger supply. Even though we may not have a surplus of men, we cannot be too particular of those we employ. If we only employ the best, then only the best iien will apply for employment. Ii my mind the man we want is he who works, not merely for the sake of earn ing a living, but who has ior his ob ject that of ultimately beooming an cm player himself. This class or man is the ideal. He takes more interest in his work and in doing it well, and shows more consideration toward his employer than the man who is merely after his wages. Personally, I would sooner, do without a man than have to ...

SALLY IN OUR ALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 1 May 1914
SALLY IN OUR'ALLEY. When 'Airy's fancy "lightly turns to thoughts of love," he takes lnmselt quite 5s surionsly as any lordliig of the West Ind id pursuit of beauty or ioney-bug; only he begins much earlier, for the youth of slumlan.d who has got any way into his 'teens without lindmg a sweetheart is an object of oity and ridicule. And it is difficult to blame hini; for any escape from his squalid home life is welocome; and what escape could be mlore alluring than the flowery path of love? Besides, 'Arry wants a home of his own, and when he wants a home he sees that he gets it. Thus, at fifteen.or sixteen we find him putting on his fineastrfeathers, and strutting in his plum-coloured suit and sky-blue tie, as proudly as any old tinme Macaroni who twirled his tasseled stick and ogled beauty through his eyeglaas in the Mall. What's more, he hlas a keen eye for a pretty face and a trim figure; and thore is no lack of them to return the -ihallenge of his roving eyes, for 'Arriet is just...

After the confirmation ,f the minutes, Mr A. Ward's notice of motion, that the society be man aged by a committee of 15 or 20 members was considered. Mr Ward stated that under, the present re gime with all their members they had to wait half an hour before they could get a quorum. Such-a state of things tended to lower the status of the society in the minds of those who were opposed to them. Sometimes the meeting lapsed for the want of a quorum and . he thought it was time they adopted some other system. Mr Carnie said he thought the committee system might lead to better results, but he had his doubts. What they wanted was to get the producers to take a glreater interest in the proceedings. They were told in the one hand to do something, and when they did it, holes were picked in- it by others. There was inspiration in numb...
