Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, OCT. 2, 1915. Special interest attaches to the meet ing of the Grenville Shire Council on Thursday next, as the Shire now includes the Boroughs of Smythesdale and Scars dale as a fourth riding. The whole of the councillors of the boroughs, number ing 18, are entitled to sit with the coun cillors of the Shire for one year, and it is expected that 16 or 17 will attend the first meeting. It so happens that the annual striking of a rate will take place on Thursday, and as the boroughs have paid their way and kept their roads rea sonably free from bogs on a shilliug rate, there is bonnd to be a feeling of resent ment against falliug into line with the Shire rate, which has been Is 3d for th...

Correspondence. OWNERSHIP. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

: $ 1 OWNERSHIP. (To the Editor.) Sir,—When this war is ended (suc cessfully for us, who can doubt) many of our foibles will be thrown into the melting pot. It now behoves us to look ahead, and not be caught as our friend the enemy caught us, quite unprepared for the great struggle. One of the best writers and deepest thinkers in Eng land, (since the writings of Sir Phillip Francis electrified the old land with his letters) was the late J.B. Personally I feel that. I owe him a deep sense of gratitude for many enobling thoughts. J.B. relates that he received an invita tion from a large landowner to stop with him for a fpw days. One beauti ful spring morning, his host suggested a walk on to some rising ground. _ He says, "From our elevated position the scene was enchanting. Around us was a great stretch of country, fields, moorlands with . smiling hills bounding the horizon. ' It is something,' said my friend with a laugh, 'to look around on all this, as far as the eye can see, and to...

A Double Surprise. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

A Double Surprise. A woman suspected that her hus band was in the habit of kissing the servant girl, and resolved to detect him in the act. One Saturday night she saw him pass quietly into the kitchen. The servant girl was out, and the kitchen was dark. The jealous wife took a few matches in her hand, and hastily placing a shawl over her head, as the girl often did, entered the back door, and immediately she was seized and kissed and embraced in an ardent manner. With heart almost bursting, the wife prepared to administer a terri ble rebuke to the faithless spouse, and, tearing herself away from his fond embrace, ehe struck a match and stood face to face with—the gar dener!

SCIENTIFIC AND USEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

SCIENTIFIC AND USEFUL. For accurately telling the quality of milk there has been invented a pump to take a sample from the centre of a can. An oil-can for filling lamps has been patented that carries a funnel so that the oil may be poured into the right place without waste. On the Continent tne development of both foliage and flowers is stimu lated by an excess of carboni'c acid in the air, while the yield of tomatoes is doubled and that of cucumbers in creased 12.5 per cent, by carbonic acid treatment. The Imperial Institute has recently examined the wood of Buxus Maco wani from South Africa. Several firms using boxwood have also tested it, and, the general opinion being favorable, the Imperial Institute has i suggested to the Government of the | Union of South Africa that it would , be well to place a trial shipment of this South African boxwood on the London market.

Will Conscription Come? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

9 "It is certain," writes Dr Fitchett in the October issue of " Life " magazine, just to hand, "that the proposal to es tablish national service will create a con troversy which may well shake the national Cabinet of Great Britain to its foundations:" This sentence was wirtten before conscription in Great Britain be came the burning topic it is to-day, and forms part of a very shrewd and interest ing forecast by the editor of " Life " in his monthly review of the great war. Dr Fitchett's review of what he terras " The War of the Seven Seas and of all Continents," contained in the October issue, does not ignore the dark spots in the landscape, but, on the whole, it re flects quite confidence in the final victory for the Allies, and , attempts something like a forecast of the-way in which the ultimate triurapK may be achieved. Supplementing Dr. Fitchett's notes on the war are a review of-the outstanding war novel, an informative article on " What I saw in France," and' a fully packed ...

Mow long I remained there, or what subsequently happened to me, I did not learn till long afterwards. I only know, when I again awoke to consciousness, that it was day, and I found myself in a narrow bed, with two nurses in blue linen dress es, and white caps and uprons, standing near me, while two doc tors were gazing into my face with keen, anxious expressions. _ At first they would tell me nothing, even though, with a great e®ort> 1 asked what had happened. Banda ges were around my throat and across my left shoulder, and I felt a nausea and a giddiness that I knew arose from chloroform, and there fore that some operation had been performed.

CHAPTER XX. Another Discovery Is Made. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

CHAPTER XX. Another Discovery Is Made. On several occasions during the weary week that followed Inspector Warton called and saw me, but I al ways managed, by one subterfuge or another, to evade the more pointed of his questions. The three men who had attacked Lola and myself that night knew from the papers that we both still lived as witnesses against them. The nurses would not allow me to j see the papers, but from Rayner I i learnt that the more sensational sec tion of the London Press had pub- I lit-hed reports headed "Novelist Found Shot." Indeed, a great many reporters had called at the hospital, but had been promptly sent empty awa.v. At last, one morning, I was de clared convalescent and sufficiently well to be removed to my chambers. Therefore Rayner ordered Stevens to bring his taxi for me, and we left the hospital. Though still feeling far from well, I was all curiosity to see the house in Spring-grove by daylight, so we called at the police-station, and a stout sergeant o...

Don't Say "Rover." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

! S Don't Say "Rover." I The inhabitants of a Sussex village I recently received somewhat short no , tice of the visit of a regiment of sol . diers, and local butchers' shops were absolutely cleared out in the endeavor | to treat the visitors well at their vari ■ ous one-night billets. ! One motherly old dear, who was • 'cute enough to foresee the possible shortage, was early on the market and managed to secure a nice piece of steak weighing two-and-a-half pounds. Her three men arrived, very tired and very hungry, and by the time their ablutions were through the meat was done to a turn. "There," she said proudly, as she placed it on the table, "I thought you'd like somethin' substantial. If you manage to eat that you won't be wanting much more till the mornin'. You're lucky to get it, I can tell you, for there isn't another scrap o' meat to be had in the place for love or money. Just shout out if you're wantin' any more tea made." The soldiers decided to have a , joke with the old l...

DICK CONGREVE'S MISTAKE [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

I DICK CONGREVE'S MISTAKE j By Hawkes-Coraock. I Congreve watched the rose-colored gown as it swayed among the dancers; he had waited till its wearer swam past him again in her partner's arms. People might acclaim the other Miss Charlton—the feted Miss Charlton— a beauty. But in Congreve's eyes she could not hold a candle to her penni less cousin and companion. He hadn't a penny and neither had she—but what did that matter?. He had found the one woman, and nothing should come between them. "Congreve!" He wheeled around as a hand touch ed his shoulder. Captain Heathcote was just passing on. "War!" he said, laconically. "Every one recalled from leave—we're under orders for France. We must get away before midnight from this." Congreve stared after him for a mo ent, his heart beating fast. So it had come! The thing every soldier waits impa tiently for—active service. And then he remembered—Nell Charlton! He turned. There she was coming towards him, looking lite some deli cate flower. Sh...

WOLSELEY'S WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

WOLSELEY'S WAY. One of the neatest stories of how a military officer can do the right thing without sacrifice of dignity is related of the man who afterwards became Commander-in-Chief of the British Army. He -was sitting in a high-toned tap-room of Dublin, where privates were not permitted the pri vilege of the bar. Two finely-built men of a dragoon regiment, wearing long-service stripes, entered and call ed for drinks, which were curtly re fused them. They turned without a word and were retiring in good order. "Halt!" came sharply from the officer in civilian's clothes. From sheer force of habit the soldiers obeyed and faced about. "I can purchase what I want here, I suppose?" said the officer as he ad vanced to the bar. "Certainly, sir." "Then serve these two gentlemen with what they want," and there was a pleasant emphasis on the title. "Gentlemen, will you drink with me?" "With pleasure, sir," and the happy compact was carried out. Then the dragoons courteously inquired the name...

Methodist Circuit. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

The quarterly meeting of the Scarsdale and Linton Methodist Circuit was held at Linton on Tuesday afternoon. There •was a good attendance of representatives and officials from the various parts of the circuit. Reports submitted in connection with the different departments of the work throughout tbe circuit were regarded as very satisfactory. Finances were not quite up to the ■usual, there being a slight deBcit on the quarter's working, which was quite ex pected on account, not only of the strenuous times through which everybody is passing, and the numerous other ap peals made to the generosity of the people, but also the loss of two Sunday's income for connexional funds. In addi tion to the ordinary income and expendi ture for circuit purposes £22 was raised for connexional funds. It was regarded as a matter for much gratitude that the circuit fund had been so well sustained, and for which the circuit stewards de sired to thank the churches for their loyal and generous support.

Turn About. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 2 October 1915

Turn About. It would be difficult to find a region where the ups and downs of fortune have been so sudden and extreme as in California. In its early days, be fore its production of grain was equal to the demand, wages of farm-hands were high, but as production increased the prices lowered faster than the rate of wages. A farmer employed an industrious Irishman for five years, at the rate of fifty dollars a month "and found"—board, lodging, washing, and mending. . At the end of the term he said to his man: "I can't afford to pay you the wages I have been pay ing. You have saved money and I have saved nothing. At this rate you will soon own my farm." "Then I'll hire you to work for me," said the other, "and you can get your farm back again." First Youth: Scientists say that trees contribute to the heat in the at mosphere. Second Youth: Tliat's go; a birch has warmed me many a time.
