Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

Cycling & Motoring. ■ — ■ ' ■ '■ The war haB been a triumph for two kinds of. car types, says the "Daily Mail" (London)—types as far apart as possible—the expensive English oar and the cheap American car. The one will stand practically any strain, and the other is so cheap that when it breaks down badly it can be thrown away. At the beginning of the war the French would not requisition the big English makes of cars, even when they were offered. Of the fifty or so Rolls-Royce in Paris at the outbreak of the war, not one, it was said, was taken. But French admiration for the best type of English car is shown by the fact that General Joffre, General Focb, and M. Millerland, ; the war Minister, now have each'two j Rolls-Royces, and M. Poincare has used : the same English make in his tours to the front. Very large numbers of American lorries are. used in France. One contraot for 4,000 American motor lorries was signed in London by one of the Allies, and the same American firm tha...

ENLISTMENT STORIES [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

ENLISTMENT STORIES In England the officials who have been mobilising the army of women anxious to "do something" for the country have-now and then met with delightfully unconscious humor. This was mentioned by ivir. Walter Runci man, M.P., at a luncheon. There were 60,000 women of all sorts on the Board of Trade list, he said, from the woman who had lost her laundry f t Hartlepool and now wanted to do nothing hut make shells to the London woman who said that, she did not think she would last long, but she wanted to end her days work ing for Vickers and Maxim. A widow of middle age wished to be a piano-tuner, in spite of years of training required for the work. An other woman wished to release an able-bodied M.P. for active service by taking his place. A third wrote: "I am thoroughly used to farming; my father keeps eleven chickens in the back-yard at the same time." One dear old lady of seventy-five was willing to sacrifice her old-age pension in order to become a shep herdess;'for ...

WHAT ARE DEVIL SHIPS? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

WHAT ARE DEVIL SHIPS? A short time ago it was reported that the Germans were using "devil ships," letting them float down the River Aisne. These devil ships are another of those ancient ways of fighting • of which so many, like mortars and hand grenades, have been revived in the fighting on the Continent. A devil ship is a ship that has been filled with explosives which discharge either by means of a fuse or clock work, or when the ship hits another ship or obstacle. They were employed as long ago as 1585 by the Dutch, when the Prince of Parma besieged Antwerp. In those days they were sent down the river to explode against a wooden bridge built by the defend ers of Belgium's most important city. The devil ships used by the Germans were exploded by means of clockwork. They mustn't be mixed up with fire ships, also used by the German sol diers. These ships are usually filled with dry wood smothered in pitch, oil and other inflammable material, and when fired are sent drifting against ...

COURAGE! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

COURAGE! By James Douglas. This morning 1 received a letter i'rom a friend in France. He is a writer whose books are known all over the world. "Writing," said he, •'seems to me just now a disgusting exercise.'' And so in a sense it is, lor fighting is,,.far better than writing^, l was thinking of my friend's remark as i walked down Fleet-street, and bumped into another well-known wri ter "who has just come back fiom France. I repeated my friend's re mark to him, and he said: "What on earth should we do without the Press? We need it more than ever. We rely on it to keep up the spirits of the peo ple." And he is right. The people take ' the tone of their newspapers, if the newspapers are doleful, the people are doleful. If the newspapers are brave, the people are brave. In war, pessimism is a poison and dolefulness is a disease. At any mo ment it is easy to uiscover pretexts for gloom. I kno>," people who have been downhearted ever since the war began. "They always glare at the dar...

WAR HEROINE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

WAR HEROINE. The correspondent of the "Alge meen Handelsblad" in a letter "from the English front" tells the following story or an English nurse: — I was not far from the trenches and was walking along a sunken road, when rounding a curve I saw a bent figure slowly moving forward. I hur ried up. At first I stood speechless. I saw a girl of not more than twenty three years of age carrying on her shoulder a young English infantry man. The young man had been shot through the shoulder and after a pre liminary dressing of the wound he had been told to go to the nearest field hospital. Taking a wrong turn ing he had lost his way, had collapsed and fainted. In this state the young girl—she was an English nurse—found him. As it was at least half an hour's walk to the nearest field hospital she decided to carry him there. The brave girl readily accepted my assistance. We made my overcoat into a stretcher and together carried the wounded man to the hospital. After receiving a satisfactory rep...

THE BELGIAN (Published in England over tlie Signa- . ture, "An Austrian.'') In that Valhalla- whert the heroes go a careful sentinel paced to and fro Before the gate, burned black with. battle smoke, Whose echoes to the trend of armed men awoke; Where up the fiery stairs, whose steps are spears, Came the pale heroes of the blood stained years. There were lean Caesars from the gory fields, With hearts that only to a sword thrust yields; And there were generals decked in pride of rank, Red scabbards swinging from the weary flank; And slender youths who were the sons of kings, And barons with their sixteen quar terings. And while the nobles went with haughty air, That courteous sentinel questioned: "Who goes there?" And as each came, fully lustily he cried His string of titles ere he passed inside. And presently there was a little man, A silent mover in the regal van. • His hand still grasped his rifle, and 'his eyes Seemed blinded with the light from Paradise. His was a humble guise, ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

n. It was only by a lucky chance that John Trevor was able to secure a seat in the stalls at the Galaxy that night. From end to end the theatre was packed with an audience eager to witness a play that had been in every one's mouth for months and was prov ing a record success. An added point of interest was that the leading actress was herself the author of "The Ladder of Fame," but no one was al lowed to know that it comprised' the story of five years of her own life, be giining at the bottom , rung of the ladder and ending at the top when she had reached the zenith of her ant bition. Had the audience . been let. into the secret they would have known why Althea Standen—incomparable actress that she was—rose to such superb' heights in her portrayal of the heroine—they would have known that she was hot acting, but living por tions of her own life over again, from the first scene when on the threshold of her career she refuses the man she loves for the sake of art and am bition, to the...

"A TOAST OF LOVE." J By Frances Brown. I.. Althea Standen shut the door of her flat with a little - bang, and ran iighuy aovrzistairs. A taxi was waiting outside, in readi ness to take her to the. Galaxy Thea tre, where she had been leading actress for seven out of the ten yearp that she had played there. But on the second landing she came to an abrupt standstill and stared „^ru at a child who was peeping wist fully through the half-opened door of the flat immediately below her own. It was the child's likeness to some one she had known in tne past that made Althea pause. The child returned the stare with interest, and, emboldened by a look in Althea's eyes, smiled shyly at her and, opening the door a couple of inches wider, crept cautiously over the threshold. ' "Is 'oo an angel?" she asked, in a stage whisper. "Gracious, no!" laughed Althea; then noting the serious expression on the little face, her own grew grave, and seating herself on a wooden bench against the wall, she drew th...

Not So Crazy. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

Not So Crazy. ! The good clergyman was minister ing to the needs of the inmates of a private lunatic asylum, and he was especially warned against an exceed ingly cross-grained, recently-arrived patient. Nothing daunted, however, the reverend gentleman entered the little room where the man was con fined and began conversation with him. "Is it true," inquired the crazy man. "that Queen Elizabeth has re cently married the Sultan of Tur key?" "Quite true," replied the visitor, bent on humoring the patient. "And it is also true, I suppose," went on the demented one, "that As quith has been elected Prime Minis ter for the thirty-second time?" "Quite, quite true," said the clergy man, fervently. "Ah," said the madman, rubbing his hands with glee, "and pray, what may you be?" "I? Oh, I am a minister of the Gospel." \ "Well," said the man reflectively, "you look like a minister of tlie Church, and you may be one, but you are about the biggest liar I ever met."

NEW WAR DISEASES [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 October 1915

NEW WAR DISEASES During the war several military writers have been, suffering from air sickness. This new malady is liable to attack any aeroplane pilot who flies j for a length of time without descend ing. The aviator thus attacked is af fected with a sickly nausea accom panied by severe headache, and a vio lent desire to sleep. Swift descents through the air will bring on these symptoms, which medical men say are caused by the blood circulation of an aviator being unable to at once adapt itself to the rapid change of atmospheric pressure caused by sud den drops in the air. Telegraphist's spasm is another ma lady which has afflicted many tele graph and wireless operators in the war. The complaint is caused by continual operation of the little han dle used in connection with telegra phic apparatus. Few people realise the strain entailed by tapping for hours at a stretch with one hand the instrument which sends code mes sages across the wires. Most letters consist of more than one do...
