AUSTRALIANS IN ACTION A HARD TIME THE WILLING MAN. PUTTING A FACE ON IT. British Headquarters, France, Nov. 28. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

AUSTRALIANS IN ACTION A .A410 TINE THE WILLING MAN. PUTTING A FACE ON IT. (FLrom the Australian War Corre spondent :British Headquarters, France, Nov. 28. He is havine a hard time. I do not see that there is any reason to make light of it. If you do you rob him of the credit, which if ?ever raan deserved it he ought to be getting now-the orediit for putting. a good face upon it under conditions which to him at first were sheer undiluted misery.- Some peoples think that to tell the truth in these nmatters would hinder recruiting. Well; if it did, it would only mean that the ..young Australians who stay at home are guilty of greater meanness than one has ever thought. For the Australian here. has plunged straight into an exist noes more like that of a duck in a& farmyard drain than to any other condition known or dreamed of in his own sunny land. He is resist ing it not only passably but well. And if you want to know the reason -as far as' any general reason can be given-the m...

* NATIONAL FEDERATION Sydney, Jan. 24. Mr. Joseph Cook made sharp com ments to-night on the views ex pressed by the Prime Minister in his speech at Geelong on Thursday night. "May one ask Mr. Hughes,". he said, "why the adherents and mem bers of a political organisation should divide their allegiance with another organisation, when, on his own admission, their own league already answers to the full require ments of their p,olitical, as well as their most fervent, patriotic aspira tions l Again, I am much indebted for the admission that those party things for which the Liberal party also stands are regarded by us as subsidiary to the great overmaster ing Issue. "Why did Mr. Hughes form his present Government without refer ence to us at all? And why were those of his own party faith so largely and generally chosen for this preliminary work? We have ren dered solid, steady, and patriotic support to Mr. Hughes and his party in all matters affecting the war. If we had ever been so unmind...

MINERS AT THE FRONT [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

MINERS AT IHE FRONT .. British Headquarters in the Field, France, Nov. 30. After an advance such as we have just made on the Somme, one particular body of Army men are in especial and urgent demand everywhere at once. These are the tunnellefs, and they are wanted to drive new shafts, to strengthen the. roofs of tottering underground structures taken over from the Germans by our men and, most of all, to make new dug-outs. At such times the tunneller is a mighty popular fellow, for he is like the plumber at home during the season of frost-bust water-pipes- he, can "choose" his job. The tun niellers of the Somme are in priv ate life at home the coal miners of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Lanca shire, Yorkshire, Wales, and the North. Listen to a gang of them at work and :-you can detect all the colliers' dialects from Tonypandy to Blyth. They are great fellows, merry as the day, and mis chievous as sandboys, but gluttons for fighting and danger. . In fact they "have a grouse" if they are ...

CURIOUS CUSTOMS OF THE LABRADOR ESQUIMAUX. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

CURIOUS CUSTOMS OF THEE LABRADOR ESQUIMAUX. Esquimaux, or raw-meat-eater, is really a term of opprobrium applied by their all-time enemies the North American Indians to that gentle cir cumpolar race who style themselves "Innuit," or "The People," in the humble faith that, when .the Al mighty had tried' His " 'prentice hand" on the rest of creation He turned His attention northwards. she arrival in the world of the - .athful Esquimaux is not greeted by the orthodox cradle and swad dling clothes. Practically till he can shift for himself, he lives absolutely naked inside his mother's sealskin blouse, skin to skin, keeping him warm. Spared the miseries of soap and water, and early weaned to the easily swallowed diet of blubber and raw seal meat, the infant rapidly develops that invaluable layer of subcutaneous fat which, while it en hances the "jolly" appearance of' the lads, and the shapeliness of the maidens, assists materially in ecO nomy of clothing. Thus in their frigid clime, onc...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

SPORTI NG NOTES. Our Melbourne corre.piondent* wires that there was a sensational accident in the Holiday Stakes,. an event for two-year-olds at Caulfield on Saturday, but it might easily have had very much more serious consequences. The field numbere 16, the largest of the. day, but, o course, it was well within the safety limit of the Caulfield track As the field neared the winning post ji)illy Queen was in the lead from Quiilion, with Lady Key and Sweet Oomedy close up next. Suddenly Sweet Comedy,' who was ridden by 0. Wallace, was observed to falter, 'and then fall. The horses nearest her managed to avoid the fallen filly and her rider, but Mazax (W. McLeod) and Seabound.(HE McLean) were not so fortunate. Both came cdwn, but the remainder of the field succeeded in avoiding them. With the three horses and their jookeys lying prostrate, it looked like a. very . ad accident. The scene of the smash was only a few yards? from the stand of the stipendiary stewards, and right in front ...

OFFICER LEAVES FORTUNE TO REVUE GIRL [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

OFFICER LEAVES FOIRtUNE TO REVUE GIRL One of the most romantic love stories of the war has iust been dis closed. It concerns Miss Pat Peel, a chorus girl in a revue, and Lieut. `Edward Ross Mulock, of the Gor don Highlanders, who was killed at Neuve Chapelle. By the will of the officer, made in an Army pay-book, the lady inherits - property worth £15,000. Miss Peel, a dark, vivacious girl. is a member of the company playing "Keep to the Right," one of the inany revues now popular. None of the other ladies of the company suspected that Miss Peel, drawing as she does each Saturday the -same unpretentious salary as ,themselves, was heiress to a fortune. None of ther i connected her with a lady who was plaintiff in a case heard in the Probate Court last November, wherein the judge decided in favour of a will, although the pay-book in which it was inscribed could not be found. She herself remained silent as to the facts until certain considera tions caused'her to tender her resig nation ...

DEATH SQUADRON. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

DEATH SQUADRON. The "Giornale. 'Italia," in an m' terestmg article on the naval opera tions in the Adriatic, explains' that, night and day, for the last six months, these watems have b sen patrolled by, Italian squadrons composed, generally speaking, o cruisers and torpedo craft r-f the older types. The principle .goverhing the ac-' tivities of these squadrons has been that, should the objebtive justify heroic measures, a warship whose lose would be. without ;naterial sig nificance should not 'be spared. As it happens, however, the Italian vessels have encoun~tered no Aus trian warships except submarines. Of the latter they hvve had plenty of experience. The Austrian under-water boats have discharged against the Italian squadrons a total number of tor pedoes equivalent to an average of eleven per ship, but have never suc ceeded in doing any damage to re pay them for this expenditure of costly projectiles. Each group of cruising ships comprises the same "number of units in equally di...

THE i estever ; rgus PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, JANUARY 30, 1917. AUSTRALIA'S BIRTHDAY. To-day the Commnonwealth. though only 16 years old, makes holiday in celebration of Austra lia's 129th birthday. It is true that by right of claimant discovery, we might reckon our national age at 147 years, for it was in 1770 that the great circumnavigator, Captain Cook, hoisted the Union Jack on the flowery banks of Botany Bay, and took possession of the Island Continent in the name of George III. We might even go further back, and claim a possessory record of 231 years, by maintaining that William Dampier, when he careen ed the little Cygnet on tidal mud at the entrance to King Sound in 1680, "put in his pegs" for pos terity as the first Englishman that ever set foot -in Australia. But Dampier was a quasi-buccaneer, and the Dutch had been along the nowr'-west before him. Captain Cook was not a coloniser, but a sailor who went before to prepare the way for colonisers.

WITH THE AUSTRALIANS THE CRASS BANK THE LIFE WORK OF HAMMER HEAD. (From the Australian War Corre spondent, Captain Bean, British Headquarters, France.) December 10. The connection of Tam the Ham merhead, who cut the Grass Bank out. of the forest, with Timothy Gibbs, of Booligal, in New South Wales, may not be clear at first sight. Tam's Beson forest covered two or three green hills in Gaul at the time when Caius Sulpicius and his working party of the tenth legion were laying down new paving stones on the big road from Amiens over the hilltops. The waggon carrying the Military Secretary to the Governor had bumped uncom fortably down that long slope the week before, and as the tenth legion was resting, its commanding officer received two days later an order to detail another fatigue party. The big trees looked down on a string of private soldiers shouldering big square paving stones from a neigh brouring dump where the waggons stood, and fitting them carefully into the .pavement, and-...
