GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

GERMANY. We fight for King and Motherland, i For liberty and right; To lift from many another land The heel of ruthless might; For woman's honour, put to shame; For dauntless sons who fell To thwart the Teuton sword and flame That changed our Heaven to Hell! We fight to smash the idol up That lusts" for brutish rule; To fill ere long his bitter cup With vengeance grim and full; To succour Belgium's agony And Serbia's flying groan; To set the little nations free To call their souls their own! We fight that earth may smile again, That human hope and love May expiate the curse of Cain And turn to God above; We fight to save the race unborn, To reach the Higher .flan Which breathes through ages bruised and torn The Brotherhood of Man!

A BRAVE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

A BRAVE GIRL. — A Lettish girl, of 17, has been, awarded .the St. George's Cross TUveuty Germans marched up to her father's farm in Oourland. A Lieufc. threatened that she would be violat ed and the farm burnt unless sh» produced, wine. The girl recalled that there were two barrels of old liq ueur in the cellar, but before they were brought up she dropped in a. powder made of bluebells, which, brings on drowsiness. The barrels were soon emptied, and the Germans were rolling on the floor one after another. The girl filled a bowl and gave it to the sentries, saying itwas. the'lieutenants's order, then, retorn ing she disarmed the Germans, hid ing their weapons in the cellar, while her father roped the limbs o£ the insensible men. Finally the the girl traversed the swamps and fo^nd a Siberian outpost. A few pails of ice-cold water woke up the Germans, who were horrified to find themselves prisoners. ,

ENGLAND'S HOPE. HAS ENGLAND A SAVIOUR? [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

ENGLAND'S,/ HOPE. 1 t'rf (By Frank Hams). HAS ENGLAND A SAVIOUR! There are two men, and only two, in the "'Cabinet who possibly may have the talent, for they are manifestly not the usual Cabinet Ministers selected as spokesmen by the Oli garchy to defend its interests; the one David ^'3^%$^d-George, the other Bonar Law. yJ'But if not in or about the Cabinet, still in t&e country there are certainly able men to be found, aud the first thing to settle is just what sort of man is wanted. Napoleon said: "An army marches on its stomach," and it fights on its stomach as well. The lesson of this war is plain: a busi ness man. is wanted and a distinctive business faculty. A clever man can keep a shop ana make k.'fortune in it by his own charm and ability, but when the business grows enormous ly, organising talent is needed more than any thing. Small armies can always be vivified and rendered irresistibly by one man of talent such as Cromwell or Washington or Wolfe; but . &lt...

ON HAPPY ENDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

< ON HAPPY ENDINGS. Losing that job, dependence, insecurity, want itself—rthese are not the only penalties dreaded by men an&fcwomen whose hair is turning grey. There are also the pangs of the soul. John Galsworthy hints at this catastrophe of th« human drama:— A. That tragedy of the old—the being laid aside from life before the spirit is ready to resign; the feeling that no one wants you j that all those you have borne and brought up have long passed out on roads where you cannot follow; that even the thought life of the world streams by so fast that you lie up in a backwater, feebly blir.dly groping for the full of the water, and always pushed gently, hopelessly back; that sense that you are still young and warm, and yet so furbelowed with old thoughts and fashions that none can see how young and warm you are, none see how you long to rub hearts with the active, how you yearn for something real to do that can help life on, and how no one will give it you!

An angry man sometimes accomplishes some thing; a discouraged one never does.

THE MUDDLE IN THE BALKANS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

TEE MUDDLE IN THE BALKANS. Now that the die has been cast in the Balkans, it is a patriotic duty to show some straight things about our fkjreign ^policy—■ once more shipwrecked on the sands of illusion. I propose to pass in review- our capital blun ders, beginning with cotton. Cotton is the indispensable ingredient of lugh propulsive shells. Every bale kills. Every bale that Germany has or has acquired since her ultimatum means the deaths and wounds of so many Britons, Frenchmen, Rus sians, Belgians-' Without cotton, Germany could not fight. What did we do? We did nothing. Tens of tho^saijkls of bales of cotton were ' permitted to enter Germany through neutral countries; month by month, tor nearly a year. It is certain Germany had not enough cotton to fight for more than a year and a half. Had we stopped its import in Augiist, 1914, she would to-day be suing: for peace. As it is, ehe has sufficient cotton to fight Europe for ,t five years;—because we could not mabe up our minds to d...

PANAMA CANAL CLOSED. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

PANAMA CANAL CLOSED. . '' The Panama Canal is to remain closed until all danger of slides in the Gaillard Cut is past," says the New York "Independent." " Governor Goethals is back in command, and -w.ill .see to it that the big ditch can play no more tricks after he has completed the work this time. The engineers are to blast away the tops of hills in order to bring all loose dirt into the channel and thus permanently remove the source of the slides. "For Governor Goethals believes, first of all, in thoroughness. His determination to see the thing throungh is indomitable, and his insistence on 'nothing but the best' in his results is reassuring. 'I purpose to fight it out on this line if it takes all-the summer' is, in effect, his slogan. Good luck to Gover. nor Goethals. We need more public officials in the United States "with the same seorn of superficiality.''

A WAR SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

A WAR SECRET. In connection with the action, of the King of Bulgaria precipitating his country into the war on the side of Germany, against the wishes of the great majority of the bulk of the Bul garians, the Swiss newspaper the "Gazette de Lusanne" asks in a leading article why the Bulgarian army which fought so splen didly against the Turks in 1912, when Bul garia, Servia and Greece were united in the Balkan Federation, crumpled up in 1913 when Bulgaria attacked Servia, and Greece came to the aid of the Servians- "The forces in 1913 were about equal, and the Bulgarians had every advantage," says the "Gazette de Lusanne." "The real reason of the defeat of the Bulgarians was that the soldiers refused. to fight against their Servian brothers. They went even further, and shot down their of ficers who were in favour of the war." A Bulgarian officer who is at present at Geneva, and who escaped by a miracle, con firms these statements, and says that the Op position Bulgarian party, whom ...

A PARALLEL FROM GOETHE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916

The'?pla^Was Gd^the's "Iphigenie and Tauris," which proves, especially in the magnificent fifth act, th|it the poet regarded with admiration the coircluct of a w.pman who defends her own countrymen in an. enemy land, and with loathing and abhorrence the suggestion that such a "crime" deserves capital punishment. Every German who has read the play or seen it performed in Brussels will henceforth behold the pale shadow of Edith Cavell walking hand in hand with the 1 •young Grecian priestess. Iphigenia, brought ' by her protecting goddess from the sacrificial altar to the savage region of auris, occupied herself, Kxte our gracious English nurse, with works of mercy. She eared for the rude subjects of Thoas as Miss Cavell nursed the German soldiers; and...
