FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 30 July 1915

"Ambrosine.") Among the many' quite now stylo#, wonderful results are achieved with guagings, which are introduced on the skirts to stimulate the favorite qoke ef fect. and often find a dainty repetition on the bodice. Pipings are used with enormous elite 1 011 taffeta gowns, where thoy accentuate the attraction ol" a deep hem, or emphasise tho outline oi a. charming Zouave coatee. liny frills and ruchings distinguished many of the new models, outlining the edge of a coated, or finishing the edge of a skirt. Scalloped edges for skirts, though not in the least becoming, are ubiquitous, and are introduced alike on tailor-mades and silk gowns for afternoon wear. Fashion has decreed for high collars) and, how ever much we may protest that tho law, open corsage. is much moro comfortable, fashion insists that if ono would bo really chic, one must wear a collar fas tened high to the throat. Hustling is again fashionable. There are no moro sliinpsy, soundless petti coats, for smart women no...

WANDERING STOCK. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 30 July 1915

WANDERING STOCK. TIIE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) Sir, -I am pleased to see that "Small Ratepayer" found amusement in reading my letter re wandering stock. He considers I was not in earnest, because I did not lift my pen when Northern cattle and sheep were on our roads eating everything. I did not complain about the grass eaten by wandering cattle; only the damage caused to our fences and trespass by them. The Northern cattle gave 110 trouble as they were constantly at tended by a drover, hence my silence. If all stock were so attended and pre vented from injuring fences, etc., I could never complain or object to "Small Ratepayer" on anybody else running cattle on the road. Regarding the reference by "Small Ratepayer that I run as many cattle on the road as I like, and, being used so long to free grass, would not like to pay if the suggestion of Cr Mcllwraith were carried outAs my cattle are never on the roads I treat this vulgar abuse with contempt, Regarding his allega tions against ...

BRAVEST DEEDS AT THE FRONT HOW THE ENEMY TRENCH WAS BLOWN UP. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 30 July 1915

BRAVEST DEEDS AT THE FRONT HOAV THE ENEMY TRENCH BLOWN UP. (The following narartive is written j by a uiotor-car driver at the front, whose thrilling letters home appeared in the "Daily Mail" last November). I wafe seated in a cafe with four French drivers and interpreters, and each of us spoke of the bravest deed he had witnessed in the war. The fol lowing are the narratives of a Frencli interpreter and a Belgian driver: It. is common knowledge that the method employed in getting the accur rate nuigo for artillery is for one man to go out under cover of darkness wita f>. telephone and lead; then, if no suit able cover is available, to "dig himself in," and the following day, from this point of vantage, telephone back the result of ihe firing. Such a hole had been used by a French battery for some time, the offi cer acting as observer coining and going at night at intervals of three or four nights, for food, always refusing the offer to be relieved. Being in such a fine position,...

San Remo. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 30 July 1915

San Remo. It is the custom of the local shire council to grant th<j prayers of all un opposed petitions unless there is some obvious reason against, on the principle that they practically represent- the unanimous wishes of the community. , At its last meeting the unusual position arose of a petition being under conr sideration from resident? of San Rcrno j for access to a piece of land on the foreshore of Bore Bay, fenced in !>y a | lessee under the Government, the I arguments being that piera:; parties ! and cattle which have been accustomed to water there were interferred with ; while there was a counter petition also from residents of San Remo, traversing these statements. The Council took the businesslike view that in the absence of unanimity the lessee was entitled to hold the land against all comers as long as the rent was paid, and decided to leave matters as they were. The running of cattle on roads and streets in the mainland ridings of the shire with no other...

THE SENSITIVE KAISER. ! I 'GERMANS MUST GUARD THEIR TONGUES. Tho ihypsr-sensitiveness and megalo mania of the Kaiser liavo much to ans wer for. They created a mild reign of fear in Germany, but they have now turned Europe into tho valley of tho shadow of death. It is nearly 20 years since <'i popular music teacher, Fr&ulin Hadwig Jaede, in Stettin, was sentenc ed to three months' imprisonment for having four Vjsars previously denounc ed the Kaiser's composition, the "Song to Aegir" as "a piece of rubbish." at -she said was perfectly true, but "tho greater tho truth, tho greater the libel." The poor girl addressed a petition for pardon to the Empress, but boing afraid to face lier husband on 6uch a ticklish matter, sho asked Herr von Levotzow, an ex-President of tho Reichstag to present the matter.

DEMOCRATIC HEROISM. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 30 July 1915

DEMOCRATIC HEROISM. Vain, mightiest fleets'of iron framed; Vain, those all-shattering guns; Unless proud1 England keep, untamed, The strong heart of her sons. So let his name through Europe rm& A man of moan estate, Who died as firm as Sparta's kirn;.. Because his soul was groat. -Sir Francis Hastings Doyle. What is a hero? It seems a trito question, requirng no answer-because i the answer is obvious. Yot I do not I doubt that miich ignorance exists upon the point, especially wUien the idea of heroism is applied to actual happen ings, We think, for instance, that heroism is something more or loss defi nitely associated with picturesque acts of bravery. Thus the amazing and splendid O'Leary, V.C., who valorously took an enemy position single-handed, slaying eight Germans, and Lieutenant Holbrook, who safely manouvred his submarine through the minefields oi the Dardanelles, are heroes. Heroic also was Admiral Oraddock, who fought against impo.sible odds in tho Battle of Chile-...

COMMANDER SAMSON. A MAN WHO IS MAKING HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915

COMMANDER SAMSON. A MAN WHO is'MAKING HISTORY. If there is one man who is thoroughly enjoying this war, if there is one man who has succeeded in turning it into the finest sport in the world, that man' is Commander Samson. For brillianeo and versatility he is unquestionably the man in this cam paign. The Germans fear him more than they fear any other man. They have offered a reward of £1000 for his body, alive or dead-preferably the latter. And little wonder! It was estimated as far back as last December that in one way or another Samson had cost the enemy the expenditure of between five and six thousand shells, not to men tion riilc cartridges innumerable. Yet he remains unscathed, and even more daring than when the war began. lie has done wonders in reconuoiter ing up in the air. When the Germans lire at him he loops the loop, as im pudent as Darke before the Spaniards. Or, perhaps, with reckless audacity, when he is fired at over a German camp, he turns upon one wing and then com...
