TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—One of the principles of Scout training is the upholding of one's honour. We Scouts cannot help ad miring the manner in which the gallant Belgians have stood to this principle with regard to their neutrality. The boys have asked me if the amounts collected by us could not be devoted to the Belgian Relief Fund, and I have de cided that it will be so; and whereas 1 originally intended that the Gippsland Boy Scout Fnnd should be confined to the scouts themse'ves, I now appeal to the general public to contribute to the relief of the people of that gallant little country which has suffered so much de vastation and which must be crippled for many years to come. Hoping that this will meet with your approval, and that you will receive and acknowledge any further contributions which may be forwarded to yon, —I am, etc., H. H. VAIL, District Commissioner. [We shall be glad to receive and ac knowledge donations.— Ed. A.]

I . I MELBA COMES HOME. VICAR WHO DID NOT KNOW. Back to her beloved homeland, Madame Melba lives the simple life at Cooinbe Cottage in Lillydale, and without suffering the attentions that everywhere meets Fame such as she attained in England and Europe. Compliments have been showered on Mme. Melba by. all classes, from [ royalty downward, but there are two incidents which the great singer trea sures above all others. One occurred when she was rehearsing in a Lon don hotel. A little boy in an ad- , jacent room, hearing her sing, raised his finger, and said: "Sh! Mummie— birdie!" On another occasion she was-visit ing one of our smaller Australian towns/ and came across two little fel lows unable to gain admission to the concert hall. She took them in and gave them seats behind the orches tra. At the conclusion of the concert ." she laughingly told them they owed her a guinea apiece. The elder- of the two rose to his feet, saluted, and said: '.'Madam, we owe you much more than that." ■...

FAMOUS WAR CORRESPONDENT. EXPERIENCES OF BENNETT BURLEIGH. One notable absentee from the ranks of the newspaper correspondents in the present, war will be Mr. Bennett Burleigh, who died recently at Bs>-hill. He was born in Scotland, but went early in life to America. In 1SG2 he was engaged, on the "New York Sun" and afterwards 011 the 'Tucli-' mond Examiner and Enquirer." In ' crossing the lines South (luring ,the . ; civil war he was arrested by the Con federates and lodged in Richmond - Gaol, but was released on giving satis factory explanations.

Safety in a Submarine. CANADIAN'S INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914

Safety in a Submarine. CANADIAN'S INVENTION. Lieutenant G. C. Gordon, R.N., -has completed a model submarine and sent it to the British Admiralty for .trial. The invention consists in a conning- tower, which can be detached from the craft in case of disability while under water, allowing the en tire crew.^to ascend, to the :surface in safety. At a recent trial at a depth of 250 ft. the model is stated to have worked perfectly. Yesterday is-yojirs no longer, to-mor row may never be yours; but to-day is yours, the living present is yours, and in the living present you. may stretch forward to the things that are before. In Old Calabar, there is a saying which applies to all climes, and people —"The rat enters the trap and the trap catches him. But if he did not go into the trap the trap could not do so." There is the -whole -philosophy of temptation in. this simple proyerb.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914

LADIES' LETTER. Letters from Australian women anxious to fight are said to be pouring j in on the Commonwealth authorities. In a sparse population like ours every gun counts, but the day is not yet when the men of Australia will call upon their womenfolk to march under arms. . But there is this to be said: In the final analysis, with a foreign invader installed in our cities and the Australian people back doing guerilla warfare in the bush, the value of a gun "in every woman's hand would have to be considered. Two city men are chuckling over a little experience they met with re cently. They motored out of town for the week-end, and stayed in the country for a day or two. There they met two attractive girls and formed quite a warm friendship. When they all returned to town they arranged not to lose sight of each other, and were to telephone and arrange an evening for the men to call. This was done, the address given was a good house in one of our most aristo cratic suburbs. They were...

STRENGTH of the NATIONS GREATEST ARMIES IN ALL HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914

STRENGTH of the NATIONS GREATEST ARMIES IN ALL HISTORY. For many reasons there can be no definite statement as to the number of troops likely to be engaged in the present tremendous European war, but recent statistics show thatServia can place about 200,000 soldiers in the field. The Austrian Army has a peace strength of 431,000, and a war strength of 3,710,000. Russia has in Europe a peace strength of nearly 950,000, while the war strength of the Em pire's troops exceeds 5,000,000, with reserves totalling 3,000,000. Ger many's war strength ..is estimated at about 4,350,000. France's first line ef fective army is put down at 2,500,000, but she can provide 2,000,000 more if necessary. Italy's war strength is given as 3,380,000 (including 2,275,000 reserves). The number of troops that Great Britain will put into the field will, of course, depend entirely on the enemies' campaign and cannot be stat ed. The navai strength of the Triple Alliance is infinitely less than that of the Triple...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. A girl petitioner's mother in the ; Melbourne Divorce Court admitted that she bought the marriage ring be- i <^ause the young man came to the wedding without one; also she paid > the parson's fee. The bridegroom was walking off in the absent-minded way ■ of his kind when the clergyman said , tactfully, "Young man, come back and i kiss your wife." The parties lived j together for exactly Ave minutes after the ceremony, and as the bridegroom went out at once and didn't come back in two and a half years, the court agreed that he had forfeited all right to come back for ever after. It is possible to enthuse too much even in so commonplace a matter as football barracking. This melancholy truth was found out and proved to be sound by a spectator at a match last Saturday. He went to enthuse and he enthused for all he was worth. But he had the bad luck to enthuse amongst a crowd of enthusers who were enthusing for the other side. He yelled and boohooed an...
