A Visit to Hades. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
A Visit to Hades • fBv Bill Nye) I suppose someo'f my readers'have their sub-conscious mind so filled with ideas of the war that they dream of it, and' the horrors of dreamland could scarcely excel the tragedies we see depicted in cold print from day to day, Having foolishly partaken of a pork supper on a recent occas ion it so happened that my slumbers were invaded by a vivid impression upon my mental faculties of the lurid details of the great Armageddon in Europe. I dreamed that I had died, and, much to my surprise, was being conveyed on an aeroplane to the lower regions. When I arrived at my destination, the gates were op ened, and I saw a sad-looking man sitting at a table, writing in a large book. He looked up at my entry, and said, 'Who is this ?' 'This is Bill Nye,' replied the conductor. 'I. never heard of him,' said the sad looking man, whom I afterwards found was Satan. Never heard of me,' 1 replied, deeply offended, 'may I ask where have you been. Can't you read ?' 'What...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
Ji/jjfANUFA CTURERS of engines that have been before j J. rjl the public for twenty, thirty, or even fifty y-ears, advertise with pride that they have 20,000 engines in use—40,000 or 50,000 is considered some- j thing wonderful. The "I.H.C." Gasolene Engine has been on the market less than seven years. Their sales for the past six months have averaged about 1000 per week. More than 175,000 of them are in actual use— and, better yet, giving the highest satisfaction. Everyone of them• is an advertisement and one that makes sales of more "I.H.C.'s." What is true of these engines throughout the civil ized world is true right here in Australia. Far more of these Engines are being sold in She Commonwealth than of any other make. They are being so generally called for because of the satisfaction they give in actual use, not on account j of anything we say of them. t The "I.H.C." is the engine supreme—the world's leading engine— THE ENGINE YOU WILL EVENTUALLY BUY International Harvester Com...
Rural Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
Rural Notes. (i$y "Kusticus.") Ifc is good to have it on the author ity of the Superintendent of Export? that there has been a great expansion in the export of produce. Mr. Crowe's figures show that the total rahio of produce skipped for the eight months of the current financial year, from 1st July to 28vh February, was £5,GSS,73S, compared with £4,108,581 for the sarno period of tho previous year. The m ereasa amounts to over 38 per cent., and is accounted for chiefly by trade in meat and wheat. In dairy prodica tlrero was an increase of £1/4,574, or nearly 13 per cent. Of this gam I-ut ter accounts for £153,273, or Hi per cent, in advanco of tho figures for iho previous year.

Sale of Gifts. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
Sale of Gifts. A sale of gifts and work under the auspices of the iPresbyterian Gills' Sewiag Guild took place in the Lang Lang Hall on Friday afternoon and evening. A profit of about £14* was realised, which is considerably leas than the amount raised from the effort of the previous year, the result, however, not being due to any relaxa tion of effort on the, part of the work ers, but rather to the inclemency of the weather, combined with the num erous calls which had recently been made on the public 'for -patriotic and other objects. The girls had, as usual, a very creditable display, which represented the labor of many months, but were unfortunate in having their sale on an evening when the elements were not favorable to the attendance of visitors from a distance. However,, in view of the comparatively .small at. tendance present, the promoters were well satisfied with the financial result The fancy stall, which represented the principal portion of the girls' industry, was held b...

German Militarism. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
German Militarism, Whatever students of history may think of the German moral code; we have to admit that Bismarck and Holtke were great men ; their suc cessors are the most ordinary of mortals, remarkable only for the arrogant brutality, which, as display ed in Belgium, has roused the indig nation of the whole civilised world. Militarism,-as Germany knows it, is a survival from barbarous days, it has come into conflict with the higher, the more humane civilisation which it despised, and lies shatttered, all pres tige lost, the last glamor that silly novelists had cast about the "Divine right of Kings" so overwhelmed by failure, that it is the laughing; stock of children in the schools, From the height on which he fondly fancied he stood, the Kaiser has iullen like Nap oleon the less ; but happily the fate of the German people who have so happy a gift for the making of homes trheresoever they are cast, is not bound up with that of an incap able despot or a military clique. TVith the...

How Women are Helping the Empire. THE VIEWS OF LADY MUNR[?]EFERGUSON. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
How Women are Help ing the Empire. — «■ .The Views of Lady Muxb.,e Fekquson. The answer to the call of duty 'has been made, and made with no uncer tain voice, by the women of Austra lasia, says "Everylady's Journal" in its second war number for women. Along the path which was poiuted out ■'to them, Australia's women are trudg ing cheerfully, ungrudgingly, yet often with laughter that is akin to tears •To-day, in eveiy corner of the Com monwealth, from Government House to the huts "outback," women are contriving, scheming, planning, work ing ; and there is no confusion, no useless haste or expenditure of unnec essary energy. Federal Q-overnment House, Mel bourne, is one of the "concentration Camps," for it has been made the headquarters of the Australian Red Cross Society, of which Lady Ilelea Munroe Ferguson is the president. At the present cime the ballroom somewhat resembles a warehouse. Long tables are packed with moun tainous piles of shirts, pyjamas, ban dages, books, and misce...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
THE GUARDIAN Fulfils all these Keouirements There is no Business that cannot be Benc.fited by live, judicious advortis :ig. In country towns the people in business sometimes say, "Why should I . dvertise ? Everybody knows where I am and what I sell." But that is an error. It can be proved erroneous by the Railway and .Coach manifests and the parcels post lists at any provincial centre in which •the local business men fail to realise the .need for keeping the people in touch &lt;vith all tlxey have to sell and how they sail it. " It is safe to assert that by ■far the greater part of the goods that tome from the cities through mail orders could be obtained locally oT as good quality and as cheaply as the city ■houses can supply. But people need to be educated up to this, and it is through tho advertising columns of the Local Newspaper that the education can be effected. Moreover the Business man's announcement in the Local Newspaper-is a •standing invitation to do business wit...
The Central Railway. MR MACKEY'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 14 October 1914
The Central Railway. -*a •MR MACKEY'S OPINION. Speaking in support of the Koo weerup to McDonald's Track Railway 'Construction Bill in the Legislative Assembly, Mr Mackey said—I have great pleasure in supporting this pro position. I think that, in many wajB, it makes a departure from the ordin arily accepted :liue recommended by the Kail ways Standing Committee. In the first place this line passes through the famous Kooweerup country, and ifc serves an immense acreage of land inferior to non9 in Victoria. There can be no question that, in connection with the portion of the Ivooweerup Swamp which it Bervos,-this-line will lead to immense development, and will tend to make :the Swamp the vegetable garden of "Melbourne. The land there is worth to-day from £50 to £60 per acre, and as the process of consolidation con tinues, it is increasing m value, and it is difficult to place a limit on the increment in valce from nature's process while man is cultivating the ^attd. In addition^ to th...
