At the monthly meeting of the Gordon Shire Council 3'estcrday, a letter was read from the—PsroTft Health Department forwarding a copy of a letter received by the Hoard relative to the premises of a skin and hide dealer at Boort, and to state that the Board would be glad to rcccivc the Council's ob servations on the matter. Mrs J. A. Kirk, of Boort, wrote as follows to the Board "There is a skin and hide dealer living next door to me who' has his shed right in the main street within ten feet .of our bedrooms. It was alleged that ft is very often full of high-smelling sheepskins and hides, also stinking fat (which arc kept lying about the floor for some time). I would like to know if it comes under the laws of general health for such a place to be allowed in a town, es pecially at this time of the year when infectious disease germs are so prevalent?

THE DINNER HORN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

THE DINNER HORN. When I was young and full of vim I labored in my father's field, and 1 have heard It said by him that none a hoe could better wield; beneath my care the pumpkins thrived, tall grow the turnips and the corn; and when the noon hour had arrived, my father blew the dinner horn. Talk of the music of the spheres and all the sounds inspiring men! They would have jarred upon my ears, had they come floating to mo then! I've heard great singers caracole through notes of joy and noteB of scorn, but nothing ever stirred my soul like father's old tin dinner horn. I've heard the noble organ peal, and thought it heavenly and grand; I've heard march, waltz, Virginny reel, performed by Sousa's bully band; I've heard the great Car uso trot out songs sublime as e'er were born, but nothing ever hit the spot like father's old tin dinner horn. A crank on music, I have sailed, all o'er the world, to hear the bfest; the masters of all lands have failed to give my yearning spirit rest. When...

Big Blow Next Spring RUSSIA TO ATTACK CONJOINTLY WITH HER ALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

Big Blow Next Spring RUSSIA TO ATTACK CONJOINTLY WITH HER ALLIES. Operations in the Russian theatre will not assume first-class importance tor some time, in the opinion of the London "Times" correspondent at the Russian headquarters. He points out that the Germans are sending more men and guns to tho West and prob ably to tho Danublan front; but fierce fighting is going on, and is likely to continue on either flank of the 700 mile battle line. In spite of the loss of something like a score of divisions, the Germans on the Russian front still dispose of huge forces aggregat ing over 800,000 bayonets and 80,000 sabres. With the aid of numerous guns, innumerable Maxims, and miles upon miles of barbed wire, the enemy can hold out in various sectors whence the men have been transferred long enough to bring them back to face an emergency. In the words of a high authority. "The second stage of the war on this front concluded with the final stoppage of the invasion. The third Btage will beg...

The Navy that is Throttling Germany OUR SUBMARINE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

The Navy that is Throttling Germany OUR SUBMARINE BOYS. Ltv John K. II. Pollen, the Well Known Naval Writer. Germany's unceasing efforts to dis parage and belittle the unpleasant at tentions of our Fleet are occasionally fostered by the most amazing state ments. I recently referred to a de spatch, sent to America, describing the visit of the well-known writer Karl Wlegand to the German l-'leet. and the ridiculous sentiments express ed therein found echo in a recent Ger man "wireless" in the following para graph:— "Mr. Asquith asks where Germany s Navy is. He is unaware ol the fact that the question may be asked, "Where is the English Navv?'" The answer is simple, and can be expressed in a few words. The British Navy is everywhere. Not just "somewhere in the North Sea." but everywhere, on every ocean and in every sea! Wherever the enemy's territory touches the great waters, there is the British Navy represented. This "wireless" no doubt refers pri marily to those units of our sea for...

From Various Sources Riches are straws that tickle women. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

From Various Sources Riches are straws that tickle wo men. This is the season of turkey tales, just as February will be the month of snake stories. It seems evident that n Melbourne news item Inspired a Sydney poultry lover with the yarn which ho spun to the bench lately. He had read in the newspaper an account of how the Fitzroy police had arrested a goose which was wandering at large to Its own jieril and as a menace to the peace of the King's subjects just be fore Christmas. This gave him the cue to say, when a policeman found him with a fine, fat turkey under his arm, that he had found the bird roam ing aimlessly about -the street at 1 o'clock in the morning. Being a man of kindly heart and hospitable instinct, lie had picked up the bird with the idea of giving it a bed and breakfast, and a pick-me-up in the morning, and '.hen fending It home to Mrs. Turkey in a chastened and repentant mood. A companion of the accused gave evi dence that he also had been inspired by charitable m...

Luminous Police [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

Luminous Police The darkening of London streets by night has introduced many Innova tions, such as the whitening of tlie kerb stones. The latest is the mark ing of the constables on point duty with a broad, white band above the left cuff. This will enable drivers of vehicles to distinguish the checking official arm which otherwise in its mantle of dark blue would be lost in the gloom. "They will be whitewashing us all over soon," said a policeman, "and I I don't know but what we shall want it | when the fogs come real and good." Mrs. H.: "Yes, she's pretty, but a poor conversationalist. She seldom [ uays a word. I can't understand why so many men propose to her." "I can," sighed Henpeck. , Talents are best nurtured in soli tude; character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world. j Some women have such a horror of dying an old maid that they marry three or four times 8 a-preventative.

Spoilt Huns IDLE LIFE IN A BRITISH CAMP. MALICIOUS FOOD WASTE. By a Russian Who Was There. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

Spoilt Huns IDLE LIFE IN A BRITISH CAMP. MALICIOUS FOOD WA3TE. By a Russian Who Was There. I am a Kussian by birth. As the local authorities of a small town in a prohibited area considered my pass port an insuOicient proof of my na tionality, they decided to send me to an internment camp until the validity of the document had been acknow ledged. I think that my observations mado in that camp will bo of some in terest to the public. The most remarkable fact that stands out is that the interned en emy alien prisoners in this country have no work whatever to do beyond the fatigue duty, which task is ac complished in about an hour. The sole duty of the prisoners con sists of cleaning their beds, washing the place, and sending a delegation of four men for eacJi company to the kitchen to fetch uic food. During their long periods of en forced leisure the prisoners amuse themselves chiefly by playing cards. Mostly the stakes are matches or stones, but in frequent cases the stakes have assum...

Dummy Kaisers UNDERSTUDIES TOUR GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

Dummy Kaisers UNDERSTUDIES TOUR GERMANY. Four or more "dummy" Kaisers tra vel dally about Germany and the war zone In pursuance of a carefully tliouglit-out plan to protect the real' 1 Kaiser against capture or injury from tho Allies' aircraft, according to Mr. Robert Rieser, secretary of the Hobo ken Board of Trade and member of I tho 7Ui Regiment National Guard, New Yorlt, who has returned from an obser vation tour in Germany, where he in spected various prisoners' camps. "It is no exaggeration to say that tho outside world, and even the great | or part of tho German people, are in absolute ignoranco of the whereabouts of the Kaiser," says Mr. Rieser In a special interview published in the "Sun." "This is evident from the con flicting reports locating the Emperor in various widely separated places at the same time, and is precisely the object which the military authorities had in view when, after the beginning of the war, they built four more motor cars which in every respect were...

The first day of a tour so strange and new as this one leaves one with impressions big and broad that quite outweigh smaller ones of detail. I have seen all Uie wonders of shell making, and I believe I could now go fairly closely Into the question of shell and rifle cartridge manufacture in all its six hundred different proces ses. nut wonderful as these things are, their wonder pales before that con tained in a chance remark made by one of the shop managers who was showing us round a works in the evening.

New Viewpoints of the j War I THINGS WE HAVE DONE REALLY WELL. By K A. McKenzie. I have seen war in many ways. In my last brief experience 1 was smug gled to the front in a baggage wagon, thanks to the aiil of a friendly staff officer and a kindly guard, and stumb led into the firing line before the au thorities suspected my presence, but 1 do not recommend it. Now, however, I was to go caul paigning de luxe. When the War Of fice decides to let one go to the front all difficulties vanish. One could no' have had more kindly treatment or more helpful guides. "We will show you whatever you want to see," one staff officer told me. Hilt the staff had already prepared a programme sufficient to tax any man. Please do not think that I am com plaining of my full programme. Very much the contrary. There were times when one could wish that every mo ment were an hour. I grudged the time for sleep.

On Being Wounded By a Wounded Officer. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

On Being Wounded By a Wounded Officer. A friend of mine in a cavalry regi ment got a bullet through his jaw. The jaw was badly broken, and at the J field dressing station the best they could do for him was to tie his head up as tightly as possible. His journey | down to the base iu the ambulance train was rather miserable, as he ! conhl eat nothing and was in consider. able pain. On the train arriving at the terminus the patients were lifted out of the carriages and laid in rows on stretchers along the platform. The pla'forin was greasy and the orderlies going around with bowls of soup liad to thread their way carefully. My friend said it was sufficiently aggra vating to watch others drinking soup, but when an orderly in stepping over him slipped, balanced for a moment on one leg, and then sat down upon his broken jaw, he considered the lim its of endurance had been reached. Hospital orderlies are an attentive anil hardworking class of men, and they naturally come in for a great dea...

When the Guns Stopped HOW THE HUNS WERE SAVED FROM UTTER DEFEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 20 January 1916

When the Guns Stopped HOW THE HUNS WERE SAVED FROM UTTER DEFEAT. The "Ribe Stiflstidende," the princi pal newspaper on the German fron tier, has received the following letter from a German officer, who was pre sent'during the great French offensive in Champagne:—"The Germans in this fighting came within an ace of total disaster, and were fully prepared to leave their second line. Their ar tillery was inspanned and the infantry was ready to march off when the bom bardment ceased suddenly. Had it lasted another two hours the situation, which was tnen indescribably critical, would have developed into a complete rout, because the Germans were in a state of utter and unprecedented con fusion, and almost 'hors de combat.' The sudden silence of the bombard ment impressed everyone as a miracu lous escape unparalleled in the annals of war." Mistress: "How is it that I never hear any talk in the kitchen, Jane, ■when your young man visits you?" Jane: "Oh, ma'am, he's that modest that lie *-"s ...
