BLINDED BY VITRIOL. I 'V PITEOUS MARCH OF VICTIMS. Man Who Fe|t Very Crowded. A dozen of the Australian, nurses wlio reached London at the end 01 May are always at work in tlie hospi tals behind the fighting line. They were not over-eager to make abrupt acquaintance with the gruesome hor rors of an artillery war. They hoped mat tney would he attached to some convalescent h9&pital before they had to succor the wounded straight from the trenches. The necessities of the udUietield aid not, however, admit of tiieir being gradually steeled against the terrible sights wnich are the daily iot of the war nurse. They were nustled away to France at top speed. Day and night the dull roar of can non monotonously and menacingly reaches their, ears, ana the stream ox ambulances arriving at the nospitais never- ceases. One of them has writ ten a personal impression of an even ing stroll to a canteen which is not far from the hospital. Of the scenes in the wards a nurse may not write. We ma...
A STRANGE DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
A STRANGE DREAM. A short time ago when in the city I went into the "Daily Chronicle" oliice l.o place an advertisement in that newspaper. On receiving change for a sovereign I dropped the whole lot of it and stooped to gather the straying coins together. I found on counting them' that six shiliings were missing, and after another search without success I left the office con siderably mystified and upset. That night and the following night I had a most peculiar dream. It was about an umbrella; I dreamed that I or someone in my company was walk ing with an open umbrella when sud denly a lot of silver coins dropped on our hands, thence to the pavement and, rolling all over the roadway, were lost. When I awoke I could make no sense of it, and thought no more about it. Passing through Ludgate Circus a week later a heavy shower came on, and, throwing open my umbrella, a shower of silver coins rakied on my hands and rattled on to the pave ment, scattering in all directions. I laughed heart...
JOHN STAMFORD'S WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
JOHN STAMFORD'S WILL. "It's good to have you back-again, my boy," exclaimed Milton Stamford, as he clasped his son's hand on Eus ton platform after a year's separation. "Welcome home!" "And it's good to be home again," laughed Cecil, as he sprang into the waiting car and was whirled to the paternal roof in an old-fashioned Lon don square. "East, West— Home's best. No truer words than those were ever written." "Then it's evident that you haven't left your heart behind you, in the keeping of any belle of New York?" said the father, tentatively, and the son replied, emphatically: — "Not sb much as a chip of it, sir, though the women on the other side of the pond are undoubtedly both beau tiful and attractive. I admit it freely. But somehow or other I don't seem to have met the one and only specimen which is to take me captive, and until I do meet her I must retain my free dom." - "Umph!" grunted his father, keep ing his eyes fixed on the ground. "You're not easily pleased, Cecil. What ...

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Printed and published by LioNEIj' SPARROW, sola Proprietor, at the offloe of the "G-renville Standard" newspaper, Olyde street, Linton, in the State of Victoria. Registered at the General Post Offloe, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, SEPT. 11, 1915. The feature of this session of the State Parliament has been the movement to get cheap tra velling facilities for Melbourne at the expense of the rest of the State. Having succeeded in at tracting to itself nearly half Vic toria's population, our overgrown metropolis now wants the tram ways vested in its municipalities so that it may take and use the profits while suburban railways continue to be run at a loss. That loss, of course, will fall principally on country taxpayers, who always bear the heavier part of the burden. Is there any valid reason that entitles resi dents of Melbourne to cheap travelling facilities at the ex pense of the country ? As a matter of common justice public transp...

CURIOUS WAR COINCIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
CURIOUS WAR COINCIDENCE. A curious coincidence is narrated in a letter from Private S. N. Jones, of the' Motor Transport A.S.C., to friends at Llangollen. He was a driver on the Llangollen Wrexham motor-bus route, and en listed so.on after the commencement of hostilities. In France, strange to say, he was drafted to the identical chassis of the motor he had been driving on the Denbighshire route, it having been purchased, with many others, by the Government. The manager of the road car com pany has written to Private Jones stating that, if it should be possible, they will re-purchase the car after the war and place upon it a plate record ing the circumstances related.
TOLSTOY AS A PROOF-READER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
TOLSTOY AS A PROOF-READER. The extraordinary ca!re with which Tolstoy read and re-read his proofs is shown by Count llya Tolstoy, son of the famous Russian author, in his "Reminiscences of Tolstoy":— "When my father's story, 'Anna Karenina,' began to come out in the monthly 'Russki Vyestnik,' long gal ley-proofs were posted to him, and he looked them through and correct ed them. "At first he would mark the mar gins with the ordinary typographical signs, letters omitted, marks of punc tuation, and so -on; then he would change individual words, and the ■whole sentences. That would be fol lowed .'by erasures and additions un til the proof-sheets became a mass of patches that was perfectly black in places. It was impossible to send them back as they stood, because no one except my mother could make head or tail of the tangle of signs, transpositions, and erasures. My mother would sit up all night copying the whole thing out afresh. "In the morning the pages lay on her table, neatly pile...
FOR ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
FOR ENGLAND. In hundreds of English, homes theiir mothers sit to-day, remembering tlie sons who fed at their breast and slept in their arms; happy if, in the watches of the night, some flow of tears may slacken the tense strings of the heart and lull the busy itera tion memory in the aching brain. Wtyat does it all mean? A few months back the summons came. The name of England was blown on the bugles. He heard—there was a knocking at his heart and a flush of his temples, and he was gone. To day he is dead—dead for the sake of a magic name. A friend called on a merchant who did a large Continental business to offer him his sympathy. "This must hit you very hard." "Very hard," said the merchant. "I've over eleven hundred pounds ow ing me in Germany, and it's touch, and go whether I ever get a penny of it. Still we've got to put up with something for the country." "I'm glad you take it so cheerfully." "Well," explained the merchant, "I 5 owe/over sixteen hundred pounds in Germany."
HOW FAST DO ANIMALS MOVE? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
HOW FAST DO ANIMALS MOVE? The "speed of a gazelle," "fast as a horse," "fleet as a deer," "slow as an ox," are all familiar terms. But few know just how fast or fleet or slow these things are. An interesting computation just made by scientists is designed to throw light on the mat ter. A* riding-horse covers 40 inches while walking, while at a jog-trot it covers 11 feet in a second. The two minute horse covers 44 feet in a sec ond. The leirurely ox moves over only 2 feet a second when hitched to^a waggon, and about 20 inches when at I tached to a plough. I The elephant, which can pull more than six horses, moves over about 4% feet in a second, and running as rap idly as it can, is able to travel but IS feet in a second. The lion is claimed to run faster tli n the swiftest hunting-horse, which is from 80 feet to 100 feet a second, according to the country through which it is compelled to tra vel. Tests differ greatly as to the speed of a hare. Some claim it can travel at the rate of ...
CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
CHAPTER XIV. I Wherein Confession Is Made. "Well, Lola," I said at last, still holding her little hand in mine, "and why cannot you reveal to me the truth regarding the mystery of the death of Edward Craig?" "For a very good reason—'because j I do not myself know the exact cir-. cumstances," was her prompt re sponse, dropping into French. "I know that you have made an inves tigation. What have you discover ed?" "If you will be frank with me," I said, also in French, "I. will be equal ly' frank with you." "But have I not always been frank?" she protested. "Have I not always told you the truth, ever since that night in Scotland when you trapped me in your room. Don't you remember?" "Yes," I replied in a low voice. "I remember, alas! too well. You pro mised in return for your liberty that you would break awa,y from your uncle." "Ah, I did—but I have been utter ly unable, M'sieur Vidal," she cried Quickly in broken English. "You don't know how much I have suffer ed this past year—how te...

"5TTTT Relates a Strange Story. : 1 stood before Lola, grieved at her ^ToSfwell I knew, alas! how deeply she had suffered, of all the bitterness and remorse with which her young life was filled, blighted by ao ever present terror, her youth sapped and her ideas warped'by living m an at mosphere of criminality. Rapidly, as I took her little hands in. unspoken sympathy, recollections of our strangely-made acquaintance ship ran through my memory, and be fore me aroso a truly dramatic and impressive scene. I had first seen Lola, two years be fore, seated alone at luncheon in the pretty salle-a-manger of the Hotel d'^ngleterre in Copenhagen.

BATTLEFIELD SURGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
BATTLEFIELD SURGERY. In past campaigns a wounded sol dier had to undergo a painful journey to the rear of the fighting-line before his injuries could receive attention, but to-day stricken -warriors are not carried to the hospital, for the hos pital is literally brought to them. That this is not an exaggeration will be realised when it is mentioned that in the French army they have motor hospitals carrying a surgeon's fold ing tent, an operating-table, and a complete X-ray apparatus for locating bullets. These vehicles are saving scores of lives by promptly treating wounded soldiers less than half-an hour after they have been hit by 'bul let or shell-splinters. The hospital motor-cars speed about the battlefield in the rear of the trenches, and when a man is found seriously wounded, the operat ing-tent and its accessories are erect ed in less than fifteen minutes. Bul lets and pieces of shell in the body are located by means of X-rays, the necessary electric curreot being ob tained ...
II [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
II. At Stamford Hall the house itself was beautiful enough, the furniture would have realised a handsome sum at Christie's, the lawns and gardens all around would no doubt be abso lutely charming in summer, the house hold seemed to run on oiled wheels, and not a single breath or fractional sound penetrated its substantial stone walls from the great world outside, pulsing and throbbing with quick life. Miss Sutton was past her first youth, staid and quiet in demeanor, eminent ly respectable, and oh! how terribly dull Cecil found her, and how hope lessly bored he was after dancing at tendance upon her for three whole days. "I wouldn't complain if I could get any good reading, or an occasional game at billiards even with the butler, but the library is bared to all and sundry until the cataloguing is through and the old girl would have a fit if I knocked the least bit of starch out of any of her flunkeys, while the pater seems grown old all at once, and can hardly be dragged from his ar...

LIFE IN A SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
LIFE IN A SUBMARINE. The modern submarine lias 'been rightly termed a "matchbox full of machinery." Its interior is a mass of delicate mechanism, and five-men can easily operate every movement of a submarine merely by turning hand wheels or pulling switches and levers. When on the surface the craft travels like a motor-boat. It is driven by petrol-engines, which an swer two purposes. They either op erate the propellers in the rear of the submarine when it is awash or they can be connected to a dynamo which generates electricity for the storage battery. The latter is the heart of the under-water vessel when it is be neath the waves. The electric bat tery drives the propellers and does all necessary work after the submar ine has left the surface. A submarine is operated by empty ing two large tanks, which causes the vessel to weigh about twenty per cent, less than an equal volume of water. The boat may be made to float high or low by adjusting the amount of water in the tanks. This is...

Too Much For Him. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
Too Much For Him. It was a sad and sorry day for Pot tleby, of corn-plaster fame, when, having made his pile, lie decided to buy an estate in bonnie Scotland, and don kilts among the braw Hielanders. Quite a laird of the old-time order was Pottleby, and so exceedingly popular that at the local sports gath ering he was appointed judge.of the pipers. He sat in a closed tent while the instrumentalists squealed off their reels and jigs in close prox imity. When the last pipe had finished its drone, no sign came from the judge's tent. One of the officials walked over to get the verdict. "Who's won?" came the chorus from the competitors, as he reappear ed. "I dinna ken who's won," was the doleful reply; "but one o' ye's killed the laird!"
