THE MARTYRDOM OF NURSE EDITH CAVELL. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916

THE MARTYRDOM OF NURS®| EDITH CAVELL. \ ■ \ «< W.T.H.,'' in ' ' Sunday Herald,'' writes:—| In a garden at Norwich fourteen months ago j the news came to a middle-aged lady and her mother that war had broken out between Ger many and England- The middle-aged lady was Miss Edith Cavell, whose name was then known only to a limited number of friends. 2sTow it is known in every English-speaking land. The probabilities are that centuries after the war has become a faint and dim memory the name will be cherished—as men forget the old wars of France and England and remember Joan of Arc; forget Monmouth's Rebellion against James the Second, and remember Dame Alice Lisle and her murderer, Judge Jeffreys; forget the long agony of the Crimea and re member Florence Nightingale. Edith Cay ell, like Joan of Arc, earned fame by the manner of death. By her "Our only consolation was-the cer tainty that in God's good time jus tice must prevail." —Nurse Cavell, in the last article she wrote f...

EFFECT OF "NO TREATING." LESS DRINKING AND HAPPIER HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916

EFFECT OF "NO TREATING." LESS DRINKING AND HAPPIER HOMES. Very remarkable and far-reaching has been the result i» Greater London of the "no treating" order which has now been in opera tion for three weeks (says the "Daily News" of November 2). There has been, of necessity, a cectain amount of hardship in the ranks of the licen sed trade, but in these days such a thing has to be, and the publican has come into line with a patriotic sturdiness. An official stated to a "Daily News" representative that in a survey of a number of typical "houses of call," which included a large percentage of quick-drink and speedy-luncheon bar3 in and outside the city radius, the takings from spirituous and intoxicating liquors had fallen from between 40 and 50 per cent. The effect on the general health of the community, too/ has been remarkable. For this wo have the testimony of Dr. Larkin, the Soiithwark divisional surgeon of police, • who declares that the no-treating order has had 3uch a good effect ...

UNDER GERMAN RULE. NURSE CAVELL'S SYMPATHY EVEN FOR ENEMY SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916

Even with | her sympathies all with Belgium she j showed "how tender were her feelings in the way she spoke of the arrival of German soldiers in Brussels.

She remained in control of it, and won the admiration of alL who came in contact with her work. Brussels was filled with spies, as she stated in the article already quoted; but there seemed no reason to apprehend any inter ruption of her work, even under the obtuse bureaucracy of von Bissing's hirelings.

CATARRH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916

CATARRH. (By a Doctor) The term is exceedingly vague and - general, but is really expressive. • Speaking roughly,^ a " catarrh" is atn (list in bed condition o| a surface attended by an of .'dis charge or flowing.. Thus li ||^ nasal catarrh—the catarrh oi populai stomach disturbance, attended by the excessive ; secretion of mucus, is ktiown as gastric catarrh or catarrhal gastritis; and we may have simi lar disturbances of the liver, the intestines, and practically any region of the body which hap pens to be lined with mucous membrane At present we are chiefly concerned with | nasal catarrh, a condition which is very apt i to make its unwelcome appearance about this ^ season of the year. There are three main | factors in its production—the irritating fea ' tures of the air inhaled, such as dust, gases, and germs,* the shape'and size of the nose and nasal passages; and, lastly, the general condi tion of vigour or weakness of the whole con stitution. At least, two of these conditions ...

The British arms will', be triumphant, and win victory after victory Holland will suffer terribi'e privations, and will, be driven into the war. Throughout the spring; the most appalling slaughter will occur, and"! step by step the Allies will force their way ahead. A decisive naval victory is denoted in May. The culminating point in the war does aot-occur until 1910, and it will not be until the following year that the hordes sif Germany will be overthrown finally. was given unto the Beast to continue for months.'

GERMANY'S LARGE RESERVE IN MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916

GERMANY'S LARGE RESERVE IN MEN. I Sir Eric Swayne, Director of Recruiting, North of England, is authority for the state ment that Germany has still from nine to ten million men between', the ages of eighteen and forty-five. He admits that large numbers of these are physically unfit for the army and :'arge numbers of others must be . required as skilled munition workers; but he believes Ger many must still have many millions of men who can be enlisted a:id trained. In view of this fact, if fact it be, Sir Erie Swayne affirms that Great Britain must enlist 3,000,000 more .men by the spring if the Allies are to make sure of success.

TOWARDS THE DISCHARGE OF OUR DEBT TO HEROIC MEN. WORK AT FRENCH'S FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916

TOWARDS THE DISCHARGE g)F OUR DEBT TO HEROIC ME! WOBK AT FRENCH'S FOREST. ;;V ■ The insistent urgency of the war trumpet calling for men—more men, remains without ceasing. We hear it every minute of the day and the night, and every minute of the day and night men are answering it. Disen-/ gaging themselves from the multitude t£»ey come—a stream to the recruiting offices. But what of the others? Married men with in disputable ties; business men with large re sponsibilities; and, hardest of all, single men, -who, through some apparently slight defect, - .are debarred from service! To many of these the urgency of the bugle-call is a sound straining their nerves almost to breaking point. Oh, for the relief of being "up and at ?'—at grips with the concrete in enemy form. Warfare is in the air, and the primal ■passion for strife. The instinct of the sports man is awake in these men, and they cannot go. In a day crammed with tragedies these are not the least. They have given of money and o...
