A LITTLE AWKWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 1 January 1915

A LITTLE AWKWARD. Mrs. B. was a good old soul, and the gentlemen of the road knew of it. There was always a bite to be had at her cottage if Mrs. B.'s sympathies could be enlisted by some tale of woe and want. "'Drat you!" said the good lady to the -seedy-looking individual who pre sented himself at her back door. "A fellow of your size tramping about the country like this! What's brought you to this game?" "Just a little slip, ma'anm. I was filling in a death certificate, and ab suntiniudedly I signed my name in the space headed, 'Cause of Death,' ma'all! " IHe took away a cake.

A GERMAN SPY. HOW "TRUTH" IS MANUFACTURED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 1 January 1915

A GERMAN SPY. HOW "TRUTH" IS MANUFAC TURED. He came into Rotterdaim from Berlin yesterday (writes Mr. Stephen-Black in the Daily \lail, under date August, 27), a foxy, fluent German, curiously like a bat in appearance. lie spoke to me at length to-day in the office of a Dutch frienl, and to his swift flow of lan guage I listened. Afterwards I gath ered his history and his mission, which I will state immediately is as follows: (a) Arrange on behalf of "a German coiumittee," whose headquarters or iicinbers did not transpire, to issue gratis an ample supply of photographs, illustrated papers, and war post-cards, to the Dutch press and the world; , (b) Make similar arrangements with regard to all news of? the war in nueu tral countries. In his own words, send out the truth made in Germany. This curious missioner was liberally endowed with passes and letters of in troduction from a benevolent Govern ment. Ho had unique oppor:tunities, so he said, for obtaining the truth, al though I coul...

GERMANY'S INTERNAL DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 1 January 1915

GERMANY'S INTERNAL DANGER. That the internal danger of Germany arising from the exclusion of raw mate rial for her factories is recognised in Berlin to be a terribly serious one is evident from what the German Social ist organ Vorwaerth says:-"lIt is not wise," declares the Vorwaerts, "to underrate the danger of the war"last ing a long time. With regard to food, one or two years do not matter, but the supply of raw materials for our industries is not a thing to be regarded lightly. Germany needs an enormous import of wool, cotton, silk, flax, tim ber, oil, copper, lead, zinc, leather, and rubber if a great part of the country's factories are not to stand still. The English have not dared to blockade our harbors for fear of our mines, torpedo boats, and submarines. But the inter national law of maritime warfare gives them other imeans of cutting off our imports. Unemployment is already affecting hundreds of thousands-nay, millions. The Kreuz Zeitung has al ready coined the expression...

KRUPPS. THE BACKBONE OF THE GERMAN ARMIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 1 January 1915

KRUPPS. THE BACKBONE OF THE GERMAN ARMIES. The present war- has as yet brought forth no great figure among the Ger =man armies in the field.. Von Kluck and Vou Hindenburg, efficient generals though they may be, have displahed no pre-eminent qualities such as would range them beside their great forbears, Blumenthal or Von der Tann. Yet there is one German name that, since the outbreak of the war-and for nmany years past whenever the German Army has been mentioned-hkas been con stantly on men's lips. That is Krupp's. Over-sanguine as men are in the first flush of relief after a period of acute suspense, people are already wondering how far the world-famous Krupp works at Essen are distant from the line of lhdvance of the Allied armies. If air men could sally out and destroy the vast hive of industry which has given Germany. her mighty siege guns, her deadly field-pieces, her innumerable quick-firers! Krupp's has been called the Army and Navy Stores of the nations. Essen is Krupp's; Kr...

RUSSIAN ORANGE BOOK. HO'W GERMANY FORCED THE PACE. The responsibility for the outbreak of war is further fixed on Germany and Austria-Hungary in the papers of the Orange Book published by the Russian Foreign Office. The first telegram, dated July 23rd, reports the presentation to Servia of the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum. The Austro-Hungarian Government care fully chose a moment when the Servian Premier, M. Pashitch, was absent fron Belgrade, and demanded a reply within 48 hours. M. Iashitch returned to the capital with the utmost speed, and in the meantime the Prince-Regent of Servia addressed .a pressing appeal to the Czar not to dissociate himself from the fate of the Servian kingdom. M. Sazonoff, the Russian Foreign Minister, at once instructed the Russian Charge d'Affaires at Vienna to inform the Austro-Hungarian Government that the period of 48 hours was "altogether insufficient to allow anything useful to be done to smooth away the complica tions that had arisen," and to decla...

To this list be long oats and sugar beet. The latter she did not export, but the sugar made from it came our way, aid while it was beneficial in some ways, in-others it was of doubtful advantage.
