CONTROL OF THE BALTIC. (New York "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 6 January 1916

CONTROL OF THE BALTIC-1 (Now York "Herald") The conquest of the Baltic Sea by the British naval force is expected to bo the forerunner of a new cam paign by the Allies, which, if success ful, may have decisive results on the war. A fortunate outcome of this or.npaign would mean the termina tion of the great struggle at a much earlier date than the most optimis tic permit themselves to forecast. It has been known for some time by thoso in touch with the work going on in the British and French naval construction departments that the British Admiralty has not been con tent with merely keeping its fleet in the position of the watchdog watching the rat hole, to repeat Mr. ChurohiH's homely metaphor, but has been en gaged on a scheme for a naval offen sive on a gigantic scale. Hints re cently have come out regarding some of the means which are to be employ ed in this offensive. It long hus been felt tlmt the cap ture of Kiel and its canal would be a more vital blow to the heart of Ger man...

The omnibus was fairly full, but room could have been made oil the seats on one side for them, only two women there spread out their skirts in such a way as to occupy much more than their share. The two ladies stood, catching hold of the straps. Sudden ly one of them was surprised to pee her companion raise her hand and box the ears of one of (he women seated in front of her two or three times as hard as possible. Natur ally there was great consternation. "Here, missus," said the conductor, "half a mo." What's the matter? What arc ver doing?" "What am ! doing?" said the lady indignantly.

ANZAC MEDAL SUGGESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 6 January 1916

ANZAC MEDAL SUGGESTED. [ Viewed from a military standpoint, | the Anzac expedition must bo writ ten down a failure, yet it is doubtful | whether any story of any war will be more cherished by a nation than this will be by Australia. The . Anzacs boast that tkey never wont back in all that fearful campaign. Therefore, the suggestion now being made that a special Anzac medal should be struck by the Common wealth for the gallant survivors of Galllpoli is particularly forceful—one had almost written "happy" in mo mentary forgetfulness that the word can hardly be used in any connection with the expedition. To follow mili tary custom would mean that the War Office should be consulted in or der that the King, who Is the foun tain of all honors, should authorise, a special medal for the Australasians, but it Is hardly likely that. If Mr. Hughes earnestly preferred the re quest, the Imperial authorities would long withstand It Sergeant (to raw recruit): "What are you laughing at? Not at me, ...

The last lot was being put aboard, when either dislike to part with a few friends, apprehension of some mis- hap befalling young Cosh, for whom he had a warm regard, or a sudden attack of "wanderlust" actuated my mate to propose that he and I should join the party. He said we   could see the place, learn some- thing of the country and be back again in a week. This abrupt pro- posal did not seem to me prudent, but loyalty to a mate in those days was an articlc of faith, never distur- bed by any little eccentricity, even if it did involve a ...

Recent addresses delivered in the United States by Mr lilwood Mead who was imported here by the Bent Government, to put irrigation on an American, and therefore suc cessful footing, demonstrate that Australia has a good deal to teach America on this very subject of adding to the productivity of rural centre.-,, i-urther they demonstrate that Victoria at any rale ranked high with other centres of the world in irrigation development, before Mr Mead ever sat foot on these shores.
