SCHOOLGIRLS IN BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917

SCHOOLGIRLS IN BATTLE. In the Paris "Journal", of January 9 M. Ludovic Naudeau, that paper's Petrograd correspondent, tells he extraordinary story of how twelve Russian girls" from a Moscow college got into the Russian Army, and of their experiences in the war. One of them, named Zoe Smir nova, has just reached General Headquarters from the extreme front, where she has spent fourteen months among the men, dressed as a soldier, and taking her share of all the soldiers' work and hardships. She is 16 years old, and, with her hair cut short, looks like a lad, but her voice is a girl's. With eleven of her school com rades she determined to get to the front at the end of July, 1914. They could not leave Moscow direct, for they would have been stopped at the railway station, so they took a carriage to a neighbouring town, where, having obtained uniforms, they boarded a military train, and were welcomed as comrades by the regular soldiers. Thus, without difficulty, thoughl with many a nervo...

WHEN BIRDS FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917

WREN BliRiR D IIFIGT. Sparrows are uroverbially pug nacious. Sometimes a tree will be a? sparrow. battle ground, and for ten minutes it will bb as lively as a. dog fight. On one occasion a, flock of sea iulls, flying inland from the Chan Iiel, tbbk pbssession, says a London paper, of a newly-sown field. Then. a mob of rooks appeared, swooped down, and drove the gulls off. The rooks posted. sentries to watch that no invaders should steal in and take spoil, an it was amusing to see these sentries hustling and bustling, the gulls who ventured to return. From time immemorial a pair of cariion crows had held undisputed, sway at Gray's Inn, and not a rook put in an appearance until the fell mng of the oaks. on the Chesterfield property at Mayfair. Then the :in vaslon commenced, and the big crows were overimastered' by num bers. Probably the finest fighter in the world, quadruped or biped, is the. game cock. He is a ithatch for any thing his size in the world, if he. nets a fair field and ...

HOW TO BENEFIT FROM READING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917

HOW TO BEEFJIT FROM READING. It used to be as necessary a mark of elegance in Victorian day to have an opinion on the telve books with which one was prepared to be wrecked on a desert island, as to have daguerreotypes of near and far.. relations d.splayed in a plush cov ered album on th3 drawing-room table. The litera y exercise would prdbably prove too heart-searcha,g in these nays, when-if publishers' announcements can be accepteds there is an almost weekly- output of "epoch:- making" work. Yet were the moderni, averagely. educated per son forced to commit himself to 12 books, it is extremely doubtful if he would include anything that.has been written within the last fifty years: His choice would certainly be actu ated by a mixture of irrelevant mo tives, and nothing would probably prove a more misleading reflection of his literary taste and habits. When D'r. Hew Morrison, cufator of Edinburgh Public Library, was ask ed which of Scott's novels had the greatest circulation, he star...

sOLD ADVERISEMt NIs SOME 'EXAMPLES-AMAZING, AMUSING, AND TRAGIC. Although, in boldness and ingen uity, the British advertiser must yield the palm to his brother across the Atlantic, he has .a few feats to his credit of which he has every right to be proud.: When, for ex ample, the famous old battleship, -the Foudroyant, was wrecked a few years ago off the coast of Lanca shire, her owner, Mr. Wheatley Cobb, and his crew left her for the night to racuperate en shore after many hours of expos-rc and 'l.i:?, On returning to their stranded ves sel the next morning they were hor rified to see the words "- 's Pills" painted in enormous letters on the venerable hull; and, although the unlicensed legend was promptly re moved, a photograph had already been taken, and the ship which had so long "braved the battle and the breeze" will. go .down to posterity associated with "-'s Pills 'at 1/11 a box."
