FO WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 July 1915

'Ambrosine.") Ill the world of millinery strange , tilings arc happening -just now,- and it | would seem almost us though the pow ers t-hat be had taken for their motto "Everything bv turns, and nothing long," since even trom one week to I the next there are radical changes 111 shape, size and style. It is curious, too, that for the present, as the skirts grow even wider and fuller, the hats become smaller and more close lilting, until the 'feminine form runs a serious risk of taking upon itself a silhouette which will be too much like that of a pyramid to be altogether graceful or becoming. Sooner or later there is sure to lie a reaction in favor of large picture shapes, but in the meantime the little hats are hnving tilings entire ly their own way. Between the two favorite shapes of the moment a difference exists which is aptly if flippiantly, expressed by their respective descriptions, as pork pies an pill boxes. The former hats have raised crowns, very often bordered along the t...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 July 1915

w V MELBOURNE LETTER (From Our Correspondent). The message from the Imperial Gov crnweni asking for more men with or without equipment has given a more serious 'turn to public thought on the war than perhaps any particular inci dent of the great campaign. It has impiessed" the section of t he commun ity capable of taking thought of the matter with the fact that the position of .iffairs is such as to occasion anxi ety. But then comes the almost uni formly reassuring cable messages pub lished in the newspapers, telling of suc cesses. and advances, and repulses of the enemy, prisoners captured and guns taken, but almost silent as to disasters and deficiencies. And the peoplo al ways anxious to look oil the bright side are satisfied to go on in the usual way. It is perhaps getting perilously near an offence co say so, hut that system of publishing optimistic views of the .situation does a lot to restrict recruit ing. It is not judicious to make known the whole truth, surely "it would be...

LORD KITCHENER AND HIS TASK. (Condensed from the London tator," Mareli 6th.) ?Mr. Bonar Law has a liappy power of focussing public opinion in his speeches. The country in general has confidence in Lord Kitchener, and knows vaguely that it is under a debt of .gratitude to him i'or what he has accomplished and is accomplishing. It has not, however, been ablo to define- and put into words the special way in which the Secretary of State for War has served it. We arc grateful to Lord Kitchener because at tho very beginning of the war he form ed what Mr. Bonar Law calls "a gigan tic conception," not only of the mili tary needs of the nation* but of our ability to meet those noods. Other men and lesser men, eveirthough they might have had enough imagination to see what might and ought to be done', would in the emergency have boon daunted by the task before thorn. As Mr. Bonar ? Law declared, it is probable, that no statesman on oither bench would have attempted to do moro than koep up the ...

DRAWING THE LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 July 1915

DRAWING THE LINE. 'There was on Master Tommy Whif fle's face, as he came in from play, an expression of unalloyed satisfaction. He bounced down on the one sound spring of the sofa with a sigh so indicative of profound content that his father was in stantly filled with misgivings. Half an hour afterwards Dabbs, from the next street, strode up the garden path and gave a pull at the front door bell. "If I catch your, boy playing war games within a milo of my place again" he announced, "I'll trounce him till his }iido looks like the paint on a bar ber's pole." "Steady, old fellow-steady," ad vised Whiffles, sen. "It's very stupid of you to throw out rash threats. "What boy wouldn't play war gamos nowa days, oh? Boys will be boys, you know.'' '' Let him keep a boy, then,'' snarl ed Dabbs; "it's when ho imagines Mm self a Prussian army corps and my greenhouse a cathedral that I draw the lino."
