BULLENGAROOK. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 February 1915

BULLENGAROOK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Farmers in this district have fin ished threshing, and the yield has been fairly good, most bagging more than they expected, which, consid ering the price of oats, is very sat isfactory. Despite the cry of slack times, McCashney't mill is still working full time, two waggon loads-some times tIhree-leaving the yard every day.. Pearce Bros., of New Gisborne, are sinking a shaft for water at the foot of Bullengarook hill. John McCashney & Son are doing the work, and they are down about 110 feet, Mqstly through burnt Scoria. No sign of water yet, blit there must be water there somewhere, as there is a perennial spring just below the road, in front of Harris' place. - There was a very successful gath ering of old Gisborne residents on Monday, also a Swiss fair, in con nection with the Methodist Church. Both were very satisfactory. Rain would be very welcome. The potatoes in this part are looking well. Grass is getting scarce. The roads ...

WHY DO AUSTRALIANS TRAVEL IN GERMAN SHIPS. [Written in January, 1913, before the present war with Germany broke out.] [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 February 1915

WHY DO AUSTRALIANS TRAVEL IN GERMAN SHIPS. [Written in January, 1913, before' the present war with Germany broke out.] At the present moment the Gert man considers himself a very fine fellow. In order to prove that he puts on airs in every country. of the world. Even in the country of his dearly-beloved allies he conducts himself as -though he considers him self a very superior person indeed. His manner in his friend's country is somewhat' different from that which he assumes in France and England. In the former case he seems anxious to express the fact that there is, absolutely no doubt about his superiority; and further, that it is simply owing to the al leged superiority of the German army that Italy and Austria remain geographical expressions on the map of Europe. In France and Eng land, however, he has more the ap pearance of the parvenu attempting to enter society. He is, under all his arrogance, uncertain of himself. It used to be said that an English man was the most dislike...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 February 1915

BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESENDENT.) The Committee of Management of the Recreation Reserve has received a communication from the Lands De partment (through Mr. E. J. Hogan, M.L.A.) intimating a grant of £10 towards the inaintenance of the Re serve, on condition the residents con -tribute a like amount. A meeting of the Cominittee was held on Sat urday night, and it was decided to co-operate with the Cricket Club, and endeavour to raise the money by a concert and. ball on Easter Monday night. The Reserve is look ing particularly well at present, and the public of the district, should consider it fortunate to possess such a. pretty and suitable place of recre ation, which is a source of admira tion to all visitors. Any effort made for the improvement of the Reserve should meet with hearty 'support. [The committee should raise the status of this natural beauty spot by naming it a Park; "reserve" is classing it with a camping place for travelling sheep. Surely Blackwood has a worthy ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 February 1915

EVOLUTION is always at work in the mundane sphere, although the fact has never : been recognised by humanity in. all :the ages of the world's history. It dethroned pa gani.m, and after the -war- will de-. .throne all theologies, which. .are only paganism writ large. A-new Cosmos, as -well as anew territorial map, will be designed, and British ethics, language, and literature, as well as British governing methods, will rule: mankind. That ii our reading of Cosmos. In the -iean time, many thousands of men. will be killed, and much misery endured. Cosmos hs, ueven beeni qnde stood. This planet that we call the world is only one of many hundreds. Man knows but little, and has always adulterated his knowledge with abundant imagina tion, which is only insanity unless subordinated to the reason, that is why the German Emperor is com monly regarded as insane. In a work called "Subtle Brains and Lissom Fingers," by Dr. Adam Wyn ter, he defines insanity to be "all power of the imagination ove...

GERMANY. (Continued from page 3.) [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 February 1915

-GERMANY. (Continued from page -3.) Look at the map of the world, and iote the enormous poi'tipns of terri tory Germany has acquired in the last thirty, years. Observe the im portant strategical footholds she has gained in :other portions of the world, and ask yourself, Has Britain ever abused the might of her fleet ? Of what does the German complain? Seeing that there was absolutely no justification for the - building of the German Fleet-What is it Germany wants.? Germany wants "The Great Day"! By .all means let it come, and an end will be put to this arro gant boasting. When it comes, let Australian statesmen see. to it that the interests of their country are not neglected. In. years to conme, when Australia's population is somine what adequate to its size, 'she will be able to look after her own inter ests-even though, as we trust, she remains within the British Empire. Up to the present, when her inter ests have conflicted with those of a foreign nation, the British states men h...

GENERALITIES ABOUT GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 February 1915

GENERALITIES. ABOUT. GER MANY. ' Mr. Harry Armytage writes to us from London: Very glad to hear my letters from Germany were of interest to your readers.. I camie back in good time before the war, but my .mother, a niece, and one of jmy`- sons (who -is in the R.F.A.) had a narrow escape, just getting back before the declar ation of war. Even so., they lost all their luggage, and were compelled to come back via Holland, instead of via Belgium. I enclose a portion of an article I wrote in Jan., 1913, -apropos of Australians travelling by, and using for their imports and exports, Ger man ships. By stress of circum stances I was forced to travel by a German ship, but my article was addressed to those who by prefer ence used this line. I pointed out that they were paying a voluntary war tax to 'the German navy, which intended some day to attempt to destroy the British Empire. I tried, unsuccessfully, to get it published in the "Age" and the "Argus", and English papers. I was aston 'ished...
