Romance of Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 7 November 1916

Rorhance of Gold. . For thirty years the memory of a [ piece of gold-studded ore haunted , Richard Greaves, a famous West Aus i tralian prospector, who has died lately. It was in Western-Australia, where he arrived in 1885, that 'Dick' Greaves allowed the gold fever into his veins. For two years after his arrival he prospected, off and on, for gold before its existence was definite ly known in the State. He brought £600 in cash to Western Australia, and the greater part of that money , was spent in prospecting work. It was a sample of stone, named Beare's stone, that sent him on his wander ings. He was shown the stone, with others, shortly after his arrival in the State, and he tested it, and thereupon decided to find Beare and locate the place where the stone could be obtained. He never found | Beare, nor did he find any more of Beare's stone. To find gold in any stone, how ever, Greaves and his companion, Ted Paine, went out on their lonely grospecting trips. Success was de • nied...

CORRESPONDENCE , CARPING CRITICS; ■To Me JZcfitor Sin,—It would appear tbafc although I I was returned from Egypt as unfit for active service snd Biuce discharged as medically unfit, I must, of necessity, merit a fair share of abuse from a certain section iof the community. So many and varied have been tho stories of my return from Egypt, that I feel forced to contradict them one and all,in common fairness and justice before a tribunal of fair-minded people. I am not seeking notoriety or publicity, but it is characteristic of some who call themselves loyal Australiaus that they would fight only if the Germans camo to Australia and assaulted thoir mothers, and ravished thoir sisters. Those I people aro that loyal that it does not matter what happens to other men's mothers and sisters so long as nothing happens to their own. It matters not that they pose as truthful and righteous citizens of good repute, while at tho same moment slandering men who have attemp ted to do iheir best in t...

How the Japanese Spoofed the Germans. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 7 November 1916

How the Japanese Spoofed the Germans. The "Mystery Shells," which the Russians used with such good effect against the Austrians in their big advance, may be filled with an im proved kind of Shimose, a deadly powder manufactured by the Japa nese. So says Mr. F. D. Marshall in a letter to the "Evening Stan'lard." Under the influence of "exceptional ly good cheer" a German naval of ficer once told him the following amusing tale :— "On one occasion when a German squadron was visiting Japanese waters, the leading officers, among them my commander friend, were in vited to visit some Japanese arsen j als and dockyards. It~"was a cere monial affair, and the officers went ashore in their full-dress rigs. "They were all dying to have a look at the Shimose powder, of which) the Japanese authorities very courte ously showed them a sample. "The commander, when he thought he was not observed, grabbed as much as he could conveniently hide in his hand, and having no other place to put it without ex...
