Frenchman Outwits Kaiser. GERMAN YACHT CHRISTENED WITH FRENCH WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914
Frenchman Outwits Kaiser. GERMAN YACHT CHRISTENED WITH FRENCH WINE. M. Valle, formerly Minister for Jus tice, told in the French courts last month' an incident, relating how a Frenchman had completely outwitted the Emperor of Germany. He was giving- instances of the astuteness in advertising of M. Kessler, described as the "champagne king," and former ly, a representative for the big French wine firm of Moet and Chandon. Proceeding, M. Valle recalled that when Prince Henry of Prussia went to the United States for the christen ing of the Kaiser's American yacht, Meteor, the Kaiser wished Miss Alice Roosevelt to perform the ceremony with a bottle of "German champagne." Preparations were made according ly, but when the ceremony had been performed it was discovered that a bottle of Moet and Chandon had been employed. M. Kessier had procured the sub-' stitution, and the Kaiser's yacht was thus christened ' witfr" French cham pagne. . He may find the Jncident an, illp omen, in the current...
MOTORS IN THE WAR. THEIR VALUE AS TRANSPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914
MOTORS IN THE WAR. THEIR VALUE AS TRANSPORTS. The value of motor transportation will be tested to the utmost during the present European struggle. Motor cars, commercial and passenger, will be taken over in hundreds of thous ands by the military authorities throughout England, France, Germany, Russia and the various countries em broiled in the present trouble. In Germany the military authorities have 120 automobile road-trains, which will be of immense value for transport pur poses, as they can each carry about 160 tons of merchandise, and aver age from six to ten miles an hour. In addition to that she has the call on some 850 subsidised motor lorries. In England-and France the same provi sion has been made, thousands of com mercial vehicles being subsidised by the respective governments for use in time of'war. Needless to say, they will all now • be requisitionised in ad dition; to hundreds of thousands of privately-owned passenger vehicles. It is interesting to note that England h...
NAVAL TACTICS. THE SUBMARINE FACTOR. REVOLUTIONARY THEORIES. AUSTRALIA AND MARAUDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914
NAVAL TACTICS. THE. SUBMARINE FACTOR. REVOLUTIONARY THEORIES. AUSTRALIA AND MARAUDERS. Sudden. battle between - the great navies of Europe ac centuates again the doubt concerning the utility of the new scientific naval weapons, particularly that of the sub marine. Several of the leaders of the scientific school of naval warfare are confident that the submarines will sweep the seas, and their revolution ary theories'may be proved within the next few days. A typical pro-submarine forecast is that of Mr. Arnold White. "In advo cating the building of aircraft and sub marines," he said in the recent "Times" controversy, "Sir Percy Scott reasons that the battleship can no long er perform the function for which she is built, because she can be destroyed in harbor, and cannot leave harbor for fear of destruction by submarines. If we were at war to-morrow with a Power that (1) is in striking distance of submarines, and (2) has sub marines, naval experts must tell us whether our battleships w...
Marriage in "Death House." SHORTLY BEFORE EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914
Marriage in "Death House." SHORTLY BEFORE EXECUTION. Only a few hours before meeting his death in the electric chair, Ra fael Longo, an Italian, was married in the "death house" at the penitenti ary at Trenton, New Jersey. He had lived with, his bride for some' years, and both had always believed them selves to be married; but it was dis covered at the last moment by the priest who attended the condemned man that their union was not legal according to the laws of the State of New Jersey. In order that his wife might inherit such property as Longo left, the marriage ceremony was de cided upon, and the couple, with the bars between them, joined hands while the priest read the marriage service over them, and pronounced them man and wife. The "death house" is the chamber upon which the condemned cells open, and-.- which leads immedia ately to the room containing the-elec tric chair. Here the couple plighted their vows in the presence of their three children and of the chief warder and h...
DR. FITCHETT ON THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914
DR. FITCHETT ON THE WAR No one knows the battlegrounds of Europe better than Dr Fitchett, the author of " How England Saved Europe," etc., etc., and his summary in " Life" for September of the events of the present calamitous outbreak among the nations is deeply interesting and instructive. Taking the Austrian attack upon Servia as the starting point, he emphasises the folly of the aged Austrian' Emperor in forcing Austria's quarrel with Servia and kindling among the great nations so gigantic a con flagration. " But behind the personal causes of the war stand the two dim vast shapes of a Pan-Slav League and a Pan-German League," writes Dr Fitchett. " This is the real cause of the conflict, the inexpiable feud betwixt Slav and Teuton." Maps and diagrams add to the interest of this summary, and a power, ful cartoon by Nuttall lends force to it." " Life" is devoting a portion of its space to a. diaiy of the war, and announces this as the first of a number of war issues. Had it not been...

THE MARVELLOUS MARROW THE " GUADA BEAN'S" RIVAL. TO THE EDITOE. Sir,—Ever on the " qui vive" for plants that will prove useful and profit able for our people, and the country^ generally, I have succeeded in procuring the above novel and prolific vegetable, and it can be more easily cultivated over a wider range of country than the famou9 " Guada Bean," which, although a tropi cal plant, has now been grown success fully throughout the Commonwealth, and in several districts has obtained the al most incredible length of 5ft. Gin. The climbing vegetable marrow is a rapid grower, the vines reaching the length of 10ft. to 13ft. and they should be trained on a fence or trellis. Within a few months from the time of planting the vegetables hang down to the enormous length of 4ft and 5ft., and present a pleasant and surprising spectacle. When young they provide an excellent dish, and may be cooked in various ways. The flavour is excellent, and no peeling is required as the rind is very tender...
