THE DARDANELLES. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

THE DARDANELLES. A rumour gained currency in town that the Dardanelles had been forced, and our con temporary gathered it by putting it on the notice board. If is was correct, the 'Democrat' would have 'specialled' what would be a glorious achievement. However, so far it seems to have been a canard heard by 'lightening dodgers' and passed on. Granny fell in.

The story in brief is, 'that a bottle of Pickme up Sauce was put into a cruet bottle, and those using it remarked that there tpos something nice about the sauce to day.' Our reason for inserting thiB in your paper is, that your readers may get to know that once Pick-me-up Sauce is tried, its quality ensures its continual ubo — not because it is cheaper.

THE WAR AND ITS RESULT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

THE WAR AND ITS RESULT. (Specially written tor the 'Democrat!' by Dr. E. Borghetti, M.D., Lithgow.) I have no desire in this very moment to explain why Italy went to war. I may ex plain that some other time. To-day I will ex press an opinion on the subject which inter ests us all: The war itself, and what may fol low from it. It goes without saying that the views which I entertain on the subject of the war are my personal views only, and if my reader can not subscribe to them, it is because men, as well as nations, have their brains cast in different moulds, whence friction between men and war between nations follow. Two are the antagonisms which distract Europe and are responsible for the present war. One of them is the Anglo-Germanico. All antagonisms between nations are of a very complex nature, but self-interest is always at the bottom of them all. Thus, if Ger many and England are now at war, no doubt, it is . because both nations aspire to the lordship of the world by controll...

Methodist Centenary. LOCAL CELEBRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

Methodist Centenary. LOCAL CELEBRATIONS. The Rev. J. W. Collier, chairman of the Bathurst Methodist District Synod, visited Lithgow last week-end in connection with the centenary of the establishment of Meth odism in Australasia, and was the special preacher on the Sunday. On Sunday morning the reverend gentle man conducted the /service at the Vale of Clwydd. when there was a splendid con gregation. His text was taken from St. Luke, 24-40, and the subject of his discourse was a comparison between the pierced hand of the Christ, and the mailed fist of the Kaiser. He referred to the Kaiser's speech in Berlin at the commencement of the war, when he told the people to go into their churches, and, kneeling before God, ask for His blessing upon their gallant army. The first thing that gallant army was asked to do was to invade peaceful Belgium, where they looted, killed, and burned. Baal was the God of the Phoenicians, and to him human sacrifices were offered. The Kaiser appeared to be a ...

OFF TO THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

OFF TO THE FRONT. 'Any letters from the front, postman?' is the familiar cry that greets every letter carrier in the Australian service. It is an incensive and persistent call from far away Gallipoli, where the bulk of our boys are. It is not to be wondered at, then, that postal officers are well up in the average of volun teers. The latest to sign on is Mr. D. Young, Lithgow's popular postman. He goes into camp to-day. May good luck abide with him is the 'Democrat's' wish to him and all the spirited boys .who give up good oc cupations to fight for King and country.

FRICTION AT THE SMALL ARMS FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

FRICTION AT THE SMALL ARMS FACTORY. There was every indication of 'trouble' at the Small Arms Factory on Wednesday morning last. For some reason or other sev eral men had either been suspended or dis missed, and their comrades took umbrage at it and decided to insist on their reinstate ment. After a conference with the manage ment, the men affected were allowed to re sume their old positions, and the back money due to them was ordered to be paid. We are glad a settlement was effected, as a strike at this period would be disastrous.

GREAT CO BAR MINE. 1 It seems now that it will b,e an indefinite p riod before the Great Cobar mine will be re-opened. It closed down 18 months ago and since that time efforts have been made to raise the necessary capital, £102,000, and it is now rumoured that these negotiations have failed.

PLEATED EFFECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

PLEATED EFFECTS. For more elaborate wear there is no doubt that pleated effects will be much used this summer. These pleats will be laid with the mechanical precision that has become pos sible now because of machines made for this purpose, and which are now the property of every up-to-date pleating establishment. They are pressed so firmly in the materials by this method that even a trip to the clean ers fails to take out their sharp crisp folds, there is no need for stitching them down by hand like the old-fashioned pleated skirts, be cause they are not cut on a flare. The pleats lap easily about the waist to make the skirt fit. When they fly open it is only momentarily with the motion of the wearer. There are half a dozen types of these pleats that can be laid in a skirt — box, side, accordeon and another that is like accor deon, but has one width of the pleat deeper than the other. The one inch side pleat is most in vogue, but these can be laid in two inches if desired.

CULTIVATE THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

CULTIVATE THE MEMORY. Many people complain of having a bad memory, as if it were something they could not help, like a headache, or some similar ailment. After all. there is no reason why anyone should have a bad memory. It is merely a matter of training, and is more over, a matter in which it is never too late to attempt to train it. For grown up peo ple many methods are advocated, all' of them, no doubt based on the principle of mental concentration. In a young child the faculty can be cultivated by making the child describe everything it has seen in its morning walk, taking care that no fact is exaggerated, but that strict attention is paid to truth in every detail. In the matter of memorising, it is an excellent plan to let the child learn one line of poetry a day, which it should repeat the following morn ing, and at the end of a week it will be able to say the seven lines. The young brain must never be overloaded with know ledge, but allowed to assimilate a fragment each day.<...

For the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

For the Empire. (By Vera E. McAndrew, Hill-st., Lithgow.) To-night on the battle field they lie, ' 'Mid the cannon roar and the shrapnel fire, For King and country they gladly, die — Our boys at Gallipoli. , The clash of steel, the burst of shell, The thousand different sounds of war, Worse than the very depths of hell. ? Brave lads at Gallipoli. No loved ones near to ease their pain, Alone 'mid the awful din of war— ' They die, but they have not died in vain — Brave lads at Gallipoli. There are men of many a different race, , Whose life blood now is shedding for you ? They are fighting the battles you will not face; They are bleeding and dying for you. On the blood-stained fields they lie weak and faint, . Their blood-stained faces grown sharp with pain, And yet you hear no word of complaint — They are bearing it all for you. And the women at home who have given their all, Heart-broken, but cheerful still; They gave their best at their country's call, They have given their loved on...

WOMAN'S COLUMN. SOME USEFUL HINTS. DRESS POCKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

WOMAN'S COLUMN. CONDUCTED BY 'MAVIS.' SOME. USEFUL HINTS. I ? DRESS POCKETS. One thing, that the practical woman has cause to rejoice at is the re-introduction of dress pockets, which are once more al lowed to assert themselves in skirts and on coats. There will probably be fewer lost pocket handkerchiefs now that the new fashions have made this concession to com fort and convenience. With the return of pleated and full skirts, the pockets can be easily concealed among folds of material, and as regards coat poc kets, these are sometimes cunningly intro duced in the rolled-up hem of the coat, for some of the newest costume coats are turned up. to pocket width over the hips and graduate off to a narrower width at the back. While the tailor made engrosses a con siderable amount of attention, the house dress is also very interesting, a charming feature of home fashions being the pina fore dress, which' is now allied,, of course, to full skirts. The new pinafore dress is cut very low in ...
