WOMEN TO SHOOT GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 22 January 1915
WOMEN TO SHOOT GERMANS. In "The Times" Mr H. G. \Vells surmises what the people will do, should the Germans land a force in England. He writes: "in the first place, let the expert; have no illusions as to what we ordin ary people are going to do if we find the German soldiers in England one morning. We are going to light, If we cannot fight with rifles, we shall fight with shot guns, and if we cannot fight according to the rules of war, ap parently made by Germans for the res traint of British military experts, we will fight according to our inner light. Many men, and not a few women, will turn out to shoot Germans. There will be no preventing them after the Belgian stories. If the experts at tempt any pedantic interference, we will shoot the experts. If the raiders, cut off by the sea from their supports, illoquipped as they will certainln be, and against odds, are so badly advised as to try terorr-strikring reprisals, onil the Belgian pattern, we irregulars will, of course, masacr...

WHEN THE GERMANS INVADE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 22 January 1915
WHEN THE GERMANS INVADE. BY A BELGIAN. The writer has just returned from a tour through the province of Namur, in Southern Belgium. The following description shows the terrible state of affairs prevalent in these unhappy dis tricts, which have been for the last two and a half months under the heel of Prussia. Some of the writer's facts are unfit for publication. The province of Namur has suffered probably as much as, if not more than, any of the other eight Belgian provin ces. Many are the villages entirely burnt to the ground, principally in the environs of Dinant. It is truly a sad and pitiful experience to go through the stricken countryside, so rich and prosperous three short months ago. The fields are bare and deserted. No cattle are left in the pastures; they have practically all been killed or sent to Germany. There are no horses at work in the fields. Almost every horse has been taken away, and farci cal payment made to the farmers with the usual scrap of paper "payable ,I' ...
WINGS FOR RUNNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 22 January 1915
WINGS FOR RUNNERS. At first blush running and flying "semsi widely different modes of motion but an ingenious inventor is seeking to prove that by adopting the aeroplane idea in running, a fast runner might travel faster. The ostrich, which can not fly, but which can run faster than any known animal, uses its comparative ly short wings to great advantage when going at full speed. When the ostrich spreads its wings so that they act as balances, they also. serve as kites or small aeroplanes, carrying a consider able portion of his weight. It is the above principle which the athlete might apply with advantage in the practice of running. The arm aeroplanes would not have to be very large, for it has been found that while short wings would be of great rssistance, long wings would be a hindrance. Another thing which helps the ostrich is the fact that most of his weight is in front of his wings. The wings arrangement would enable a man to incline much more forward when unning, and the rush...
SOMETHING'S GOING TO HAPPEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 22 January 1915
SOMETHING'S GOING TO HAPPEN A man in a furious passdion rushed up to the advertisment counter of a certain newspaper office the other day. * "That's what I am going to give him," he began, bringing down a heavy hunting crop on the counter with a crash. "Where is heP" 'Beg pardon sir,' said the clerk, "any thing I can do for youP" "Yes, there is somethingyou can do." roared the stranger. "You can in troduce me to the idiot who stuck that in your paper." "That" was a notice under the head of 'Marriages." "Do you see that, sir? John Jen kins and Sarah Smith are not married sir, and never intend to be. It's a hoax, sir-a miserable hoax." "Really, sir," said the clerk "it there's a mistake, we're exceedingly sorry. We do our best to avoid this sort of thing, but when Mr Soft brought that notice in he said-" "So Soft brought it did he?" inter rupted the man with the hunting crop. "That's all I wanted to know. Good morning." On reaching the door he turned back. "Take that notice out' befor...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 22 January 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER (PFrom our Special (orrespondent.) There is a movement to provide eys tematic training for citizens who, for various reasons, are not eligible for in clusion in the regular military forces. It has been tardy in coining, but there is reason to hope that it will now be taken up in earnest. The trouble ap pears to have been, and to still be, that the majority of people do not re cognise the necessity for everybody taking an active part. The silly re ports that rarely record anything that is not favourable to the Allicer are mainly responsible for this. It would be better if we know just what is happening and just how important it is that- all should do something more than subscribe a few shillings to a Patriotic -Fund or buy a ticket for a concert that is to furnish limelight for the promoters and inci dentally, if expenses, permit, return a small sum for one of the war funds. Plain facts about the stupendous under taking the Allies have in hand would be salutary. Were...

"Dick" Wooton one of the most in teresting men in the turf world to-day is again in Australia from England, and according to all accounts this country is going to be good enough for him 'u futuro. Wooton has now been in the full limelight for a good few years. He has had a remarkable career. Starting as a "pony" man in Sydney, he work ed his way rapidly forward until he had reached the top of the tree as a racing ma in Australia. Then bent on conquoirng new worlds, hoe went to South Africa and "made good." Then on to England where he quickly bo came a power in the Turf world. Apart from his own merits, "Dick" Wooton is famous the world over as father of Frank Wooton, the famous horseman, now retired from the saddle owing to increasing weight. It must be confessed that the boy helped his father on the way to fortune, but even if he had never been blessed with a brilliant son, Wooton senr. was bound to have made a hit in life.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 22 January 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") The State Government is re-assuring as to the prospects of seed wheat for the coming season. The position is set out in the following statement issued by the Premier: "In the matter of the supply of seed for the wheat areas, the public need feel no concern as to a sufficioncy for all requirements being available. Act ing on the advice of the Government, theogreat bulk of farmers have made their own arrangements for seed, for it has been made abundantly clear from time to time through the press and in Parliament, that the Government at no time had the intention to make pro vision for seed wheat, either by orders for purchases through regular channels \or by direct distribution of seed, to other than those who were unable to financially undertake the purchase. It was anticipated at one time that pro vision for as much as 1,000,000 bushels of wheat would be required, and ar rangements were accordingly made for securing such a quantity should it be req...
