Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, lor transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, AUGUST 98, 1915. It is freely asserted that the days of vol untary enHsfmelrt are numbered, and that throughout the British Empire some, form of military conscription will-have to' be adopted. Even America, theialleged home of the free, may soon deem it wise to fall into line with thQ European serf dom she despises, and pass through the ranks every man who is physically and mentally, fit. It wonjd seem that all humanitarian and philosophic arguments against war are mere wind when opposed to the forces of race hatred, trade rivalry, secret diplomacy, capitalist exploitation, and military ambition ; and that the only, guarantee against future outbreaks will be an equality of strength andreadi ness. .

WAR CAUSES DEARTH OF ARTIFICIAL LIMBS 50,000 SOLDIERS ARE MAIMED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

WAR CAUSES DEARTH OF ARTIFICIAL LIMBS 50,000 SOLDIERS ARE MAIMED. One effect of the ravages of war has been a call from Europe for American artificial limbs. George E. Marks, one of the leading American manufacturers of artificial limbs, re cently returned from a trip to Eng land and France, having been invited there to confer with leading surgeons, reports there is now a tremendous opening in the European markets for legs and arms made here. England, France,, and Russia have not enough makers of artificial limbs in their dominions to supply 10 per cent, of the number required. France seems to appreciate this condition j more keenly than the other countries involved in the war, and it was from France that the call came to Mr. Marks to go over and see what ar-. rangements could be made to meet the situation. "In Paris and its suburbs," said Mr. Marks, "there were a month ago 15,000 soldiers who had lost one or more limbs, and many of these were waiting for prothetic treatment. Mind y...

A ROMANCE OF THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

A ROMANCE OF THE WAR One of the most touching romances of the war has just become known in France. The other day a luxurious motor car stopped before a restaurant in a town in the Midi, and a beauti ful young woman stepped out. She gave her hand to a blind young man decorated with the Military Medal, and helped him to descend. They were a newly-married couple on their honeymoon. Long before the war broke out they had fallen in love with one another, but the girl's father told his daughter that she could never 1 marry a man so poor. The bride is | the daughter of a wealthy squire in I the South of France. The young man is the sod of a farmer on his estate. The young farmer went to the front as a sergeant. He bore himself with such bravery that he was mentioned in dispatches. Next day he was struck by a splinter of a German shell, and after four months in hospital he re turned home with the Military Medal, but blind. On learning of the awful misfortune which had overtaken her lover, t...

Royal Relations Engaged in the War. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

Royal Relations Engaged in the War. One of the anomalies of the present war is the fact that the heads of some of the nations at war are close ly related by blood ties or marriage. This is especially true of England, where the royal family is connected by descent or marriage with many of the German imperial, royal and ducal houses. The King of England, for instance, is a cousin of the German Emperor. King George is also at war with his cousin, Duke Karl Eduard of Saxe Coburg and Gotha; his second cousin, Duke Ernst August of Brunswick; his third cousin, Grand Duke Adolf Fred erick of Mecklenburg-Strelitz; his third cousin, King Friedrich August of Saxony; his third cousin, Archduke Charles Francis, heir to the Austrian throne, and his third cousin, Ernst Barnhard, Duke of Saxe-Meiningen. The Tsar of Russia is at war with his brother-in-law, Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse. King Albert of Bel gium, who is King George's second cousin, is at war with his brother-in law, Prince Charles...

SAILOR IN A FIX HIS NAME ON HIS SHIFT. AMUSING SCENE IN A POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

SAILOR IN A FIX HIS NAME ON HIS SHIFT. AMUSING SCENE IN A POST OFFICE. j In a certain post office a bluejacket found himself in a tight corner, and he is doubtless more anxious to meet any number of Germans than to re peat his interview with the girls be hind the counter. Jack wanted to change a money order. As it was a Government pay order he was asked, according to regulations, to show his certificate of identity. But the sailor had either lost or mislaid the certifi cate; he turned out his pockets, and they contained only nautical freight of tobacco, matches and odds and ends. There was so little money in them that it was obvious that any hitch in the cashing of that money order would make Jack ashore very much Jack at sea. All the girls in the post office became anxious to help. "Is your name marked inside your cap?" suggested one. Jack took off his cap, turned it inside out, and drew ; blank. "Haven't you your name marked anywhere?" urged another helper. Jack thought hard, sudd...

German casualty lists now amount ;o nearly 7,000 closely-printed pages, ind the number of issues, which are low made almost daily, has reached ;he total of 518.

A LITTLE MAN WHO LED [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

A LITTLE MAN WHO LED 1 < The weight of testimony is that the first man ashore at the Dardanelles was a little Queenslander. He was killed. The fury of the fighting and subsequently the heaps of dead pre- ' vented his identification. £ There are little men from Queens- * land, who are lithe, and lean, and brown, And you do not see them often kill ing time around a town. But you find them in the moment ! of your need. They were with you in Gallipoli, when misty morning light Saw you still upon the beaches where '' you landed in the night, ( Saw the soldiers of Australia rushing boldly to the fight ' With the little man from Queens- J land in the lead. " ' Someone saw him single-handed, as . hs rushed a Turkish gun, And his comrades looked and cheered him as they followed at a run, Then passed him on the hillside ly ing "still. Now Australia cannot place him on a | pedestal of fame, Not for all his grit and courage and the way he played the game, For the nearest they can get...

II [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

II. "Hurry, men, hurry: j Lieutenant Hardacre was panting as he shouted; and the men also were panting with their exertions, but they hurried their hardest. Inside four minutes they reached the small glass factory on the outskirts of the town, which they had been ordered to take possession of; and a minute later were busy knocking loop-holes in the brick walls. This done they drew breath, and throwing themselves on benches and the floor, awaited orders. . "D'ye think the Germans will make a direct attack, sirr?" asked Sergeant Donelly, addressing Lieutenant Hard acre. "I don't know! If they shell us this place will be a little Purgatory." ' Scarcely had the words passed his | lips, when there was the sound of a rising shriek outside the building, then a crash and a patter like heavy hail upon the roof, hail that cracked and splintered the tiles: The lieutenant looked around. "Shrapnel,'' he said laconically. "Anybody hit?" "Me, sir!" The speaker was Dew lap, who was clawing at his s...

PRIVATE DEWLAP'S MEDAL How the Fool of the Regiment Made Good. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

PRIVATE DEWLAP'S MEDAL How the Fool of the Regiment Made Good. In the piping times of peace Private John Dewlap had almost broken the heart of every man who had tried to turn him into a soldier. Drill-ser geants had watched his evolutions with increasing despair; musketry in structors had sworn themselves dry, and the junior lieutenant, newly join ed, with the pride of a young mother over her first-born, had almost wept to think that his beautiful half-com pany should be let down by the fool of the regiment. "What's to be done, Donelly?" he asked the big Irish sergeant who last had tried to polish Dewlap. "Shure, sorr, all that I can think is to take him out into the barrack square and shoot him." "I'm afraid that can't be done. The regulations won't allow it." "Ye might persuade the Colonel to take the regimint route-marchin', an' thin lose Dewlap on the way. He'd nivver find his way back, sorr." "No good," groaned the lieutenant. "Some officious bobby would lock him up, he's wit e...

The Wool Clip. BEVIEW FOR PAST SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

The Wool Clip. —6 BEVIEW FOR PAST SEASON. We have received a copy of Dalgety's Annual Wool Review for Australasia for the past season, which contains the nsual exhaustive summary of everything relat ing to the past season's clip and the marketing of same. The publication, which is in its seventeenth year of issue, deals comprehensively not only with the wool clip, but also with many branches of the wool industry. Naturally the war has played a very large part in the wool selling operations during the past twelve months, and the wool trade experiences in Great Britain, as well as on the Con tinent, are summarised in a manner that should make the record a useful one in later years. PRODUCTION" OP WOOL. ; The aversea exports of wool during the statistical year ending June 80th, amounted to 1,575,688 bales from Aus tralia, and 562,014 bales from New Zealand, the former being a- decrease pf 390,888 bales, as compared with the pre ceding year, and the latter an increase of 1127 bales.

CRIPPLING WAR CARS GERMANS STREW ROADS WITH GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

CRIPPLING WAR CARS • } GERMANS STREW ROADS WITH GLASS. From the German point of view everything leads to the necessity of her endeavoring to cripple the motor transport services of her enemies, ac cording to a prominent official. This is not as easy as dropping bombs on airship sheds, railway stations, and the like, because the motor vehicles, are dispersed all over the theatres of war and are to be counted by tens of thousands. "Therefore Germany is seeking the means of crippling our use of such machines," he says, "when the time comes for us to make our advance. As usual, her methods are character ised by that most uncommon quality, common sense. "Large quantities of empty bottles have been sent into Belgium, there to be broken up and in due course strewn on any roads along which it might be necessary for the Germans to make a retreat. Inasmuch as the bulk of the motor transport service of a modern army necessarily con- j sists of vehicles equipped with solid tyres, it might be as...

PESSIMISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

PESSIMISTS. By Ashley Sterne. An American paper, I see, has been advocating a club for pessimists. Upon first reading the headline I must confess that I misinterpreted the word 'club," and I imagined that the ar ticle would prescribe the use of that weapon which, when wielded with en thusiasm, raises a nasty bump on the head. This, I thought, would be an admirable way to treat pessimists though perhaps erring a little too much on the humane side. The toma hawk or the guillotine seemed to me to be more fitting tools of punishment for the crime of pessimism. Then I read the article throug1 and discov ered that "club" was used in its so cial sense, and that the idea was to establish recognised official headquar ters for these lugubrious individuals— a kind of M.C|C. for pessimists, as i; were—where they could foregather, happy, and contented people with the gerrn of their miserable complaint (which is the nearest approach to re creation in which a pessimist ever in dulges)—they might p...

III [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

III. From his hiding place Demna me t( curtain at the head of tne bed where the dead woman lay, Dewlap could see the still white face, and the first ap- ■' prehension that the presence of the Germans had awakened died away. That peaceful face offorded him a / new outlook on death. After all it , was not so very terrible, a kind of sleep, very reposeful , His thoughts broke off, and he grip ped his rifle tightly as heavy feet and ' noisy voices sounded from the stairs. He glanced towards the cupboard where the girl was hidden, and then ' fixed his eyes on the door. The steps drew nearer. A heavy form lurched against the door of the room, flinging , it open, and a big German soldier en- ( tered. "Mein Gott!" _ 1 For perhaps half a minute the sol dier remained staring at that quiet figure on the bed; and as he turned to leave another man entered. The first-comer pointed to the dead woman, and said something in German which Private Dewlap could net understand, 1 then the pair of them wi...

Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915

Cycling & Motoring. - ■ Daring a recent official touring car test for speed on the new Chicago speed way, it was found that with the hood up on a powerful 12 cylinder car, the differ ence in speed was equivalent only to three miles an hour. With hood down the pace maintained over 10 miles was 72.7 m.p.h., with it up, 89.9 m.p.h. On a lower powered car the difference would, of course, be more maiked. Frank Kramer, America's champion cyclist, recently established a new world's record for the quarter mile unpaced, in competition. The 440 yards were covered in 27-2/5 seconds—three-fifths of a second better than Goullet's previous record. Kramer and A. Grenda (Tas mania) tied on points for the American 'championship when the latest American mail left. Goullet was close up, being ronly two points away—third. Showing what a remarkable sprinter Kramer is, he recently rode the concluding eighth of a mile (220 yards) of a match with Goullet in 11-2/5 eeeonds, which is the: fastest eve...
