The Heroine of L005. j The French papers are full tins ueek of stories of the yoang and pretty Emilienne Moreau. "l'heroine de Loos," who, though only 17, man aged during a long year cf German occupation to keep the respect of tie invaders, which may be somewhat of a tribute to them, but certainly is a glory and an honor to her. It is said of her tiat when the British attack ed and drove tie Germans out she was the first to bring aid to the wounded, and afterwards gave in valuable assistance to a Scots regi ment which was pushing the attack, by putting herself at their head, and guiding them on the track of the re treating enemy. And she is no milk-and-water heroine, but. being faced by her country's foes, she* killed five by help of grenade and revolver. It was in the train going from Lon don to Scotland I heard of her first, though it was only when I got b2ck 3 understood the significance of what 1 heard. Three Scots soldiers on leave who had been through the drive at Loos spoke s...

MINERS OBJECT TO SLACKER. Incident at Newcastle. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 27 January 1916

MINERS OBJECT TO SLACKER. incident at Newcastle. There are two cheering incidents ol the week which suggest that Mr. j Hughes has breathed some or his ' own glowing patriotism into greut sections of his political supporters. From Broken Hill we have expected little more than materialism and sel fish greed. It is a community whoso life is a? barren of ideals as its set ting is of verdure. Soulless strife on the part of both sides of the indus trial structure have Ion? marked the Barrier City. T&at it is alone is its disregard of our national need lias | been shown by the vigorous and de termined attitude of the me:i at Tort I'irie—men whose loyalty to unionism none but a twisted mind will ques tion, but men who perceive at this time a higher duty than the surface duty to unionism. The other incident comes from Newcastle, another min ing cc-ctre. A miner had enlisted, but proved a slacker, and was drummed out of camp in disgrace. Arter his mates had gone to the front he re tur...

We are ail lainiliar with these lines :.y Ella Wheeler Wilcox, but they should be engraven upon our hearts '.vita the point of a diamond. A greatly blessed man is one who ap preciates iiis blessings. The most un happy person in the world is the one wiit> magnifies iiit. troubles without putting Lis olessings into the bal ance. Such a person soon becomes a v ictim ol discontent, envy and jealously, and a thousand other little tilack devils which absorb his thoughts and poison his atmosphere. He criticises, antagonises, argues, quarrels and irets; he becomes iil teaipered, nervous, touchy and mean, until his former friends- all shun him, and want to get as far from him as possible.

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 27 January 1916

Ladies' Letter. One cannot help reflecting once more, even at the risk of tiresome reiteration, how -wonderfully the war has altered the point of view of wo men, and how different are tlieir interests to-uay from those of pre martial times. A case in point is t&at of Miss Syjva Waugh. a daughter of a well-known and wealthy resident ol Parramatta (.VS."\V.). One wouldn't venture to say that Miss "VVaugh was ever of the really butterfly order, but ! remember reading in a society pa per once that Miss Sylva W'augh was going on a visit to India, or some other Eastern country, and she was taking with ber "0 new frocks, and iien followed a dazzling description of her wardrobe. To-day Mis? "YYaugh is -usually seen dressed in a white linen frock and apron, a large red cross on her chest and a white cap on her head, and her work for toe sol diers is unceasing. Notwithstanding the fact that the labor she i^ associat ed with is strenuous and constant. Miss Waugh still feels that she mi...
