COSSACKS ON THE RHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
COSSACKS ON THE RHINE. "What's Cornsacks?" asked Paddy the Boots. "Dunno," said the boarder at the Live-and-Let-Live. "I haven't been reading the market reports. But I should think they have been pretty dull." "That -ain't what I mean," said Paddy. "I mean them Russian rough riders." "Cossacks," said the boarder. "Those are the chaps. Pretty slick fellows, I guess. I'm thinking of what the " 'Erald" told us about 'em. That's a paper what can't go wrong. There's blokes employed in the " 'Erald" with nothink else to do but write articles telling the people not to believe no-. think except what they read in that paper. It's a easy sort of job for a bloke, I reckon. So when I read in the " 'Erald" 'eadlines that these 'ere Goatsacks was on the Rhine, I be lieved it; and I looked up the jog raphy book. Would you believe that them Goatsacks got right acrost Ger many in 'arf a week, without nobody ever stoppin' 'em? It sounds hincred iable, I know; but the " 'Erald" ain't . one of these go...
THE KAISER'S MOTHER. ENGLISH PRINCESS HATED BY GERMANS. CRUEL MEMORIES SHE NEVER FORGOT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
I THE KAISER'S MOTHER. j ENGLISH PRINCESS HATED BY GERMANS. ' CRUEL MEMORIES SHE NEVER FORGOT. In the present bitter struggle wlien ' tlxe Kaiser has declared war on prac-1 tically all the world in his mad pur-1 suit of a world-empire Germany, it is well to remember that his mother was an Englishwoman. She was the first child o£ Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Before her marriage 1 she was known as the Princess Vic- ' toria, and afterwards as the Empress j Frederick. Her memoirs have been | published, and at this stage they are most interesting. This woman narrowly escaped be coming a great historical character herself. She waged a life-long war with Bismarck. Only lack of tact and want of knowledge of human nature, prevented her from achieving great things. The first child of Queen Vic toria and Prince Albert, she remained her father's favorite until the day of his sudden death. Prince Albert was a man of uncommon range of know ledge, and he set about educating the | little Princ...
THE COMBATANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
THE COMBATANTS. By Adam M'Cay in the Sydney "Sun." "We both are gaining glory,", said the Kaiser to the Czar; And Mr. Romanoff replied, "I truly think we are." "Weeks since I had a decent sleep," the yawning Kaiser said; "I think I'd give a hundred pound for seven hours in bed. Gee, but I'm tired; I've never been one-half so tired before! But, never mind, I shan't complain; for, after all, war's war." "That's so," the Czar responded;, "you and I must recollect * That by-and-bye we'll find our brows with crowns of laurel decked. We're putting up the biggest fight the world has ever known; As lords of war and kings of gore .we stand upon our own!" "There's been no king in fcrermany," the Kaiser said anew, "To sacrifice himself like Ine to see liis country through! ; From every little Prussian1, town, from all the Saxon thorps,, I've lost a healthy Germaa, and I've only got his corpse In cities where the traffi«c clanged only the^svar-drura-toeat/s; The girls who used towalk the shops ...
A REASSURING STATEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914

"By that time," he said, "all arrange ments of the-Federal Treasury will be completed for making such advances as may be necessary to the State Gov ernments, so as to ensure that those works and railways paid for from loan funds will not be stopped, and that the j labor market in regard to them will not be unduly disturbed. Tlie London j money market has much improved during the past few days. Exchange' business is being resumed, and if it continues the financial houses will be able to give the facilities which will result in all exporting companies and houses being able to continue their businesses as heretofore."
THE YARDSTICK AND THE GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
THE YARDSTICK AND THE GUN. Three-fifths of the shops of Paris I are closed.—Times cable. The de serted condition of the city is probably I due to a general paralysis of trade i and a dearth of labor owing to the call I ing out of the French Army reserves. J There's silence on the Boulevards, the . streets we wander through, j That were merry with the chatter of grisettes, Deserve, in French and English both, the common name of Rue, And the air is full of whispering regrets. Where Alphonse spread his muslins with a little extra swank When a saucy shadow fell across the floor, There's nothing now to meet the eye but shutters bare and blank, For the Paris counter-jumpers are at war. The bud from Henri's buttonhole that sweet Denise has kept Has been cherished and been water ed by the tears That for her absent soldier-boy the lonely lassie wept, And the days since :his departure lag J like years. Lizette has lost her merry smile since • Louis went away, ' And, though her heart is filled...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES, i It was a fine story and a pathetic I .story ol the imperialist charwoman, who would not take her money out of che Government Savings BanK "lest it should be wanted to pay for helping England. And, anyhow, she did not think that she would lose it. So there's an example tor all to follow. 'But there is another phase of the question, wmch aoes not occur, of oourse, to the orator who soared yerorutoricaliy above the old lady's good deed. Yet it is none the less potent in its influence upon the pub lic mind, and the Awiui Example chanced to be in Sydney last week. An unpatriotic lady, also of the char woman persuasion, had £60 in tiie Government Savings Bank, and she would not listen to any . argument about trusting to all the resources of the State or the Commonwealth. "lie sources is all very well," she said, -but sovereigns in a sock is better." So she went and got the gold. She clutched her little bag with a trium phant air as she came down the steps. A man be...
HOW GERMANS LIVE. THRIFT EVERYWHERE APPARENT. SMALL WAGES FOR GOVERNMENT SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
HOW GERMANS LIVE. THRIFT EVERYWHERE APPARENT. SMALL WAGES FOR GOVERNMENT SERVANTS. "After the Swiss, the Germans are probably the thriftiest people in Eu rope," declares the Berlin correspond: ent of the Chicago "Tribune." "They are tremendous believers in savings banks. "Thrift is manifest on every hand in the Kaiser's land, though the Gov ernment and the State seem to be thriftier than the people at large. Government employes get ridiculous ly1 small pay;-" I was shown over one of the Emperor's castles by an old guide who had been on duty for 23 years, and was still happy on a sal ary of £5 a month. "Policemen, postmen, railway em ployes, and all the other servant's of the State are paid on a basis corres-^ pondingly meagre, judged by British standards. A German bank manager, with a gross income of £400 a year— £200 salary-arid £200 commissions on business he secures—is considered well paid. ;| "Rents are- cheaper than with us, and servants much cheaper. Here abouts it is the man ...
THE KAISER AND THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
THE KAISER AND THE WAR By Del McCay in "Table Talk." Italy will not join Germany. Nor way, Sweden and Denmark are deter mined to defend their neutrality de spite German threats. Holland has joined those in arms against Ger many. This people high in will and strength and heart, The friendship of the world might yet maintain, But they from every friend have drawn apart; Fraternal hands are stretched to them in vain, Since they would rule, not only in the mart, But one great world-wide Empire build again. c The madness that has seized them had its start In that cracked Kaiser's glory-seeth ing brain. Now all the world in fratricidal strife Is plunged, and cannon boom across the sea; Our rulers are the bullet and the knife, And Red War wins his dreadful vic tory. What recks the Kaiser of this spilt out life, Who brags of "Allemachtig Gott undt Me"? The shuddering world, with ghastly horrors rife, Groans under trampling feet of such as he. All men stare wildly at this dripping King, King...

SORDID AUSTRIAN ROMANCE. DIVORCED SERVANT-WIFE SUES FOR LARGER ALLOWANCE. ' One of the romances of the Haps burgs was again brought before the public just before the outbreak of war, owing to the fact that Herr Leopold Woelfling, the ex-Archduke Leopold of Austria, is being sued in the.

The ex-Archduke submitted to the court that his former-wife was originally a servant, and. ought to be content to live in that station of life. The court reserved its decision.
