TO THE AUSTRALIANS FROM THE DARDANELLES. I You ask us why we are nursing, [ \Yo'ro spoiling you all, you say, lAsid why aro we all so good to you? Well, soldiers, it's just this way: — It's easy enough to tliink and read, ( And imagine the things you've , done, i Hut do we imagine them just enough, [ Po WE feel the murderous gun? We know the Australian soldiers | Have answered their country's call. But what do we Know of the splendid | deeds, i Of the soldiers who light and fall? We s-eo you here with your bandaged I limbs, And we tend your open wounds, Hut saw wn the light and the bayonet charge. And our bravest heroes doomed? And saw we the shells that caused j those wounds And the deeds of bravery done, And heard we the boom and the deaf ening roar, When the battle had begun? Yes, it's easy enough to say "Bravo!" And everyone means it too. Hut soldiers, there is the debt to pay, The debt that we owe to you. —A Xurso in Melbourne Base Hospital. Street refuges and kerbs in London a...

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

Ladies' Letter. A huge Christinas cake was raffled in this town. The girls in whose charge it was took it to all the banks, and such places. At one shipping of fice, a certain man said: "I don't want to take n ticket. 1 never win any thing." As the girl was turning away, ho called after her: "Here, you may have sixpence." "You may as well have tho tickot," said she. "Make out the tickot to yourself. I don't want it," ho repeated. Now it so happened that that was the lucky tickot. "It would bo nice," said the girl who won the cake, "to take it back and offer it to that man." So she offered it. And ho took it. Another Melbourne girl has cap tured a matrimonial prize—a Riverina sfjUBttor, who is not only endowed with wealth and good looks, but with many other good qualities, which coin bine to mako him one of tho most popular men in tho district.

THE REV. F. E. LEWIN. EULOGISES "THE STANDARD." MIS LIFE SKETCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

The Rev. f. E. Lewiin. EULOGISES "THE STANDARD." MIS LIFE SKETCHED. (By C. W. Macfarlan.) The Rev. Francis K. Lewin has severed his connection with Bnort after having administered spiritual welfare in the capacity of vicar of the Anglican Church during the term 1914-15. During that period he not only endeared himself to the people of his own church, hut was loved, esteemed and respecter! by all other denominations, an! what is Boort's loss is Elwoojl's gain. He was a quiet, unassuming man, rather shy, one might say, in expressing his opinions, for fear that he might be wrong in his in terpretations. But hen; lay his true strength of character—the character of all strong men—re served and unassuui ng. Tliise two essential qualifications wore written largely across his life while he sojourned with us, and were certainly responsible in gathering around him a circle of friends that makes life worth best livin??. To those who knew him best t ho cementing of friendship was one of the main...

New Viewpoints of the War. OUR RAPIDLY IMPROVING ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

New Viewpoints of the War. OUR RAPIDLY IMPROVING ARMY. (By F. A. McKonzie, the Distinguish ed War Correspondent.) Ours is a very differently-equipped Army to-day from the little Expedi tionary Foreo that reached Mons in August, 1911. No British Army can ever surpass that force in technical abilltv, In splendid endurance, or in undying spirit. The new armies may aim to equal them—they cannot do more. But so far as weapons and equipment arc concerned, tlio soldiers of last year might well rub their eyes with amazement at things as they are to-day. Wo are able to meet the German 12cm.howitzers with our own amazingly efficient lMn. "C.rauny," as she is affectionately known in the ranks. Our supply of shells is to day ample, and they are of a variety impossible to describe here. One sees signs in many directions that the ma chine gun is now taking Its rightful position in our ranks. A < hapter might be written, did the military re gulations permit, on the varieties of hand gre...

Public Notices. WE DO NOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS. Treating a tooth that has to be filled is an operation demanding great care and patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will absces# and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time. Until we are absolutely certain that the cavity is " right," we do not begin filling. Then our expert knowledge operates. That is the reason why a Coventry Filling never gives trouble —never falls out—and lasts as long as the tooth itself. Let us Examine Your Teeth—it will certainly Pay You. C. W.

THE HARVEST. Handling Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

THE HARVEST. Handling Wheat. According to the returns made available on Saturday 52,482 bags of wheat were loaded at the various northern district stations. On all lines the work was uniformly heavy. The most striking feature about the returns is that the farmers are carting more bags to the stations than the Railway Department are handling, and consequently the stacks at the stations are growing larger every day.
