WHEN COUNTERFEITERS WERE COUNTENANCED. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 26 April 1918
WHEN COUNTERFEITERS WERE COUNTENANCED. -4---- Numerous methods have been adop ted from time to time supplementing the currency of the various countries engaged in the present conflict, but it is scarcely possible that the powers that Ie will be forced to the expodi rets that were often essential in the old days. Prior to Napoleon's 1802 campaign, for instance, the Paris gendarmeo made a raid one night on a house in the Plaine Montrouge, and discovered a manufactory of false notes. Quite a sensation was caused when, on the following day, the Police Ministor made the announcement that the .manufnctury had been started "by order of the Emperor." The false notes, which were Austrian and Rus sian, instead of French, were intend ed for use against the enemy on the Russian expedition, but the hbulk of them came to grief dlring the great retreat. The Duke of Wellington was res ponsible for a. sinilar stroke of busi ness during the Peninsulahr "ar. DT.d ly in need of gold when about to in va...

EATING THE LEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 26 April 1918
EATWIG THE LEEK. The man who. has the privilege of dining for the first time with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers has to under go something of an ordeal-that' is, unless he has eaten a leek before, and provided he is dining with the regi ment on St. David's Night. Royal Welsh Fusilier custom ordains that on St. Darid's Night every oficer and guest present at mess who has never eaten a leek before shall now do so. The novice has to stand on his chair, with one foot on the tadte, and be cute thebo leek while a drum mer heats a roll behind him, and the memory of Toby Purcell, a famous major of the regiment when it was first raised, and who was killed at the battle of the Boyne, is drunk with all due honours. Dining with a Highland regiment is also something of.an ordeal-atdleast for a Bastanach. With the dessert on a big .?mat-i;:ht in come the pipers, who smaurch round tbo table skirling and swaggering for all they are worth. In a small room the din is simply awful, and the Southerner finds...
