Dardanelles Democracy. A DUSTY BROTHERHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 3 February 1916

Dardanelles Democracy. A DUSTY BROTHERHOOD. Tim following account of the journey of relnforcenionts to Gallipoli is takon from a private letter written by a sol dier in the British Mediterranean Ex, petitionary Force. She was an emigrant and chilled meat ship on the Australian run when she was chartered by the Government as a "trooper." An excellent ship for the purpose, she needed far less reconstruction than does a liner, and, when she lay ready at an English port, hor mess decks, douches, ranged tables, non commissioned officers' berths, and washing places looked and smelt very pleasant. You could walk below deck's from end to end of the ship and clean air swept through her always. Some 1,900 troops were poured into ier at the English port, covering near l.v a hundred different units. Thev wero all "details," reinforcements sent out to fill up gaps in the torn I ranks of battalions on the peninsula.

£40 Per Second. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 3 February 1916

£40 Per Second. Three million live hundred thou sand pounds a day, £145,833 an hour, £2430 a minute, £'40 a second. That is what the war is costing us, according to the computation of Mr. Asquith; and it may be more. In deed, it may amount to £5,000,000 a day. Taking it at Its present figure, X. 3,500,000, do we realise what this means? A workman earning 30/- a week could earn £78 a year, and his earn ing would be spent in less than two seconds. To run the war for a single day it would take the earnings at the rate of 5/- a day of 14,000,000 work men. A great fuss, as Mr. J. M. Hogge, M.P., points out, Is being made about British M.P.'s salaries, which amount to £208,000 a year, a sum which would run the war for less than two hours. Kroin 1913-14 the revenue of Great Britain amounted to £194,935,000, a sum which would only provide suffi cient money for fifty-five days of war, \yhilo the £89,121,700 spent by the various municipalities for the same year would disappear in less than on...

EMPIRE'S FINANCES, j Can Stand the Strain Better than the Teutons. The "Times" publishes a corn luereisjlantl financial review* of 1015. It says thai with strict economy there need not he any doubt as to our financial resources standing any strain. Commercial operations, despite restrictions, are. satisfac tory. The city editor of the "Times" says:—As there seems to be some misapprehension, not only in Ger many, but in other quarters, as to the accuracy of the figures niveu by Mr M'Kenna for the wealth of ti e Hiitish Empire, it may be use ful to explain them more in detail. Mr M'Kenna said, briefly, that statisticians had computed the capital wealth of the Empire at jr.,(loo millions sterling, and. its total income at 4000 millions. These totals follow closely the calcula tions made by Mr Edgar Cram mond in a paper read before the Hova! Statistical Society on June 1'i. 1"N.

Confessions of a Tattooist [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 3 February 1916

Confessions of a Tattooist Tilt re is ;i boom in tattooing in the Kast-Kml of London, according to Mr. Kdward Lovett, of the Folk Lore So ciety. The boom is not among the soldiers and sailor*, but among girls of the East Km!, it being a rapidly, growing fashion, when a local belle walks out with u young man, to have his name tattooed on her arm. Mr. Lovett gives the following amusing description of a scene which he re cently witnessed In the shop of a lriend in the Knst Kud who, among other avocations, is a tattooing artist. Two girls entered the shop. One of them took off her jacket, turned up her sleeve, at the same time sitting down near a table on which was a electrical apparatus. The artist then made some design on the arm with an electric needle. When the operation was finished, Mr. Lovett aslt ed if he might see what the design war. lie was allowed to inspect the arm, upon which, near the elbow, were the words, "I love Joe Smith." "Of course, it wasn't 'Joe Smith.'" says .Mr....

VICTORIAN STATISTICS. What the Figures Reveal. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 3 February 1916

VICTORIAN STATISTICS. 'What the Figures Reveal. The Victorian Year Book, con taining the statistics for 1914-15 shows that the increase of the popu lation in 1914 was only 18,584, which was smaller than that for each of the preceding four years. This brings the estimated popula tion of the State up to 1,412,119. The falling; ofT is accounted for partly by the decline in immigra tion due to the war, partly from the large amount of men who have to the front. As compared i with the previous year, there was a slight increase in the number of marriages, the rate per 1000 in habitnnts being S.31. as against S.-13 for The birthrate, how : ever, is a fraction lower, being i '25.45 as against 2o.S2 for 1000 in i 1913. | During the past five years the ! Victorian birth rate, it may be noted, was lower than that of any other State. It was.above the rates of Sweden, Belgium, England, Wales, Ireland, and France, but enormously below that of Russia, which was 15.3; the rates for Bul garia and Rou...

WHAT ELSE COULD HE DO? [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 3 February 1916

WHAT ELSE COULD HE DO? Ay hi; opened the iron gate and caught a glimpse of the old house linlf hidden among the trees, Hem ingway actually felt a little afraid. So much depended upon the coming meeting! How would she take the news of his expected marriage? Still, he thought, there was no reason for her to be hurt. Though they had known each other all their lives, no love had ever entered into their close companionship. Hemingway felt, however, that It was only right he should tell Ethel about it. Above all things he did not want to lose her friendship, uor her faith In his high sense of justice. As ho walked up the pathway won dering how ho could break the news most gently, Ethel came running down the steps of the porch to meet hlni. He stopped bewildered. She was beautiful, even lovely, he thought. The task before him became a harder one, and he did not feel at ease until they were seated comfortably in the usual corner of the old porch that ran half-way around the house. Dur ing t...

THE BREAK-DOWN OF FORD'S PEACE-SHIP. It was the good ship Flivver set Ball across tho bring; From her sparking plugs to her ml? zen lugs she was tied together with twine; She crippled across the waves with the bop of a Deep Sea Louse, And Hennery Ford had Bryan aboard, With a dovo on the pilot house. "What ho, ray jolly salts, wherefore the ocean chase?" From Cork to Nice, we seek for Peace—or failing that, for Space! Lobscouso the anchors and reef the donkey scads! If we can't stop war with our Snuffle Corps, at least we can get some ads!" It was the good ship Flivver, and wis dom waB her load, And a cook or mate with a fcaloed pate would now and then explode; She ran on a punctured tyre till a por poise put her to flight, "For, by the Lord," quoth Hennery Ford, "we're all too proud to fight!"
