UNITED RAILWAY LEAGUES. A general meeting of the United Railway Leagues was called for Saturday last in the North liall. There was ;u meagre attendance.

HOSTAGE CITIES. M. MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 February 1915

HOSTAGE CITIES. M. .MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. Ju the Paris "Figaro" Maurice Mae terlinck, the distinguished Belgian writer, makes the interesting sugges tion that, in view of the German army's vandalism, the priuciplo of hostages should be extended from individuals to cities, Ilere arc his words: 4'To. my certain personal knowledge the Grand l'Jace, the Hotel do Ville, and the cathedral of Brussels are min ed, and only a spark would be required to reduce these marvels-the work of centuries of patient labor and love to nameless ruins. We have sacrificed all without a murmur, but this would surpass everything. What is to' be done, How can we stay their hand.7 They seem no longer to be amenable to reason, or to any of the sentiments which men hold in honor. They only seem sensible to blows. We shall soon have tho power, and they must realise it, to strike them hard." "Why should not tho Allies, from this day forward, while there is yet time, nominate certain hostage cities which will a...

MANICURED TOMMY. n.'-TO-DATK MILITARY HOSPITAL METHODS. "Did you get hu^t iu tho hands too?" a man asked an English soldier just out of the war hospital. "No," he said, and then breathing on the back of his fingers rubbed his nails upon the kahki sleeve of his other arm. "What's the matter with them, then " his questioner went on; "they look funny to me, somehow." The wounded man sproad out his two hands palm down, with the fingers spread wide apart. His finger-nails glowed like pink opals. "There's nothing the matter with them," he said, "only they've been manicured. The nurse does it. 'Shock ing fingers,' she says, 'for a young man to go about with.' So she fetches a bowl of soapy water and a box of tools and thin is what she done to them-not half bad, 1 don't think.

CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 February 1915

CLEARING BRACKEN. How lo get lid ol' bracken tern is » question that a correspondent in an Australian paper repl'es to by saying: "Cutting the bracken is of little use. Cutting: stems to be pruning them to promote their growth. The same with buruiug. The more they are burnt, the quicker aiid thicker thev grow. We find that bruising is the effective system with a hard roller made by the local blacksmith, encircled , spirally'with angle iron. The process is simply to keep passing this roller, loaded to sufficient weight, over the bracken*, as often as they show new growth. and eventually tiiis kills them right out." .'Xot cutting them in the height of spi'ing. and only ouce in tile year.' another correspondent writes "may he r^pu'in 20 times a year if thev need cutting "tlianjfieu-p'n--faet'"~ cut them as o.fteu as you can get a hit at them, with the fern hook, so that tile sun can sliine fair on the grass to sweeten it, and the cattle will help to keep them down by trending them down...

SUBMARINE'S MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 February 1915

SUBMARINE'S MISTAKE. A foreign submarine which hail reached unobserved a poirt in non-ter ritorial waters between Xakkehaved, on the northern roast of the province of Zealand and Knllen, in Sweden, dis charged two torpedoes at. the Danish submarine Havmanden, which was run ning on the surface at a speed of five knots. Neither torpedo struck her. The Havmaaden was flying Danish colours at the time. A submarine, nationality unknown, probably the same vessel, was seen the same afternoon from the lighthouse at Xakkehaved. Next morning a torpedo was washed ashore near the lighthouse, and blew up.

FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 February 1915

FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO j THEIR YIELD. | The recently introduced system ot feeding dairy cows on a graduated scalc according to the measure of the.r milk-yielding capabilities, originally devu'i'd in Denmark, lias boon receiv ing increasing attontion on the part of progressive dairy farmers in thik country. This method, which marks the latest development in tho praotice of cow feeding, lias much to# recom mond it, for it is rational in piraciplc, while easily carricd out in practice. Its special merit consists in tho fact that it promotes economy in feeding by bringing tho cost of the food ration into proper proportion with the return obtained. It is based upon the prin ciple that tho extent to. which dairy coivs aro able to respond to a milk forcing diet by giving an enhanced yield, is dependent upon the degree of development attained by their milk proilueiug powers; that is to say, the more fully a cow's inherent milking capacity is developed, the more cail her milk secretion be...

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIR WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 February 1915

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIK WORK. Convincing testimony to the useful ness of the dog has been supplied by the campaign in Belgium, our bravo Allies, employing large numbers for pulling machine guus and accompany ing sentries on nocturnal duties. Curi ously enough, this form of traction has only been adopted within the last year or two, and only fifteen months ago a Belgian Service paper wrote approv ingly of the experiment, pointing out that, in addition to being docile and competent, the animals had become great favourites among the soldiers. Among their advantages it was men tioned that they move silently, with out apparent effort, over the roughest country, and that they arc practically invisible a few hundred yards away. . With striking prescience, the writer ob served that the military Great Danes would be called upon to play a particu larly effective and glorious part, little realising probably how soon his words would become true. According to cor respondents, the dogs...

ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 February 1915

ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. Jlrs. Henrv Clews, the wife of the well-known American banker, returned lately to New York. She told the .ship-news reporters that the stories of German atrocities in Belgium had not been exaggerated, and she herself had personally investigated a number, with the result that sho found that haif had not been told. It was u war, she said, ruthless beyond description, and the Germans, so far from trying to conceal their malpractices, openly defended them on the ground that the life of a Prussian soldier in the present crisis was worth more than that of any civilian, no matter what age or sex. Mrs. Clows said there is a chance of people misunderstanding the alleged friendliness to Americans shown by the Germans. She said that she aud others were openly insulted in the streets of Jtnnicli many a time. "It is not because the Germans love us so that they foregather at the railway stations and cry 'Hoc.h!
