Mothers' Day [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 11 May 1915
Mothers' Dag. Last Sunday, May .9, was observed in Queanbeyan, both at Christ Church (Anglican) and the Metho dist Church, as what is now become one of the churches' anniversaries, viz., " Mothers' Day." The idea originated with an American lady five years ago, and the churches, first of America, and then of Great Britain and her dependencies, and now the world-wide Christian church have fathered the movement ; so that the second Sunday in the month of May annually is set apart to the hon oring and uplifting of the motherhood of the nations. Everywhere there is a note of the recognition of the re sponsible position of the moth. ers of families in all the pub lie services ; and the universal custom is that every worshiper should wear a white flower, and give to someone a white flower- preferably,' a white carnation-as the recognised emblerm for the occasion. And, beyond this, the places of worship are more or less beautified by the presence of white flowers and white reliefs. The em ...

CAPTAIN'S FLAT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 11 May 1915
CAPTAIN'S., FLAT: At a meeting of the Belgian Relief Fund Committee last Saturday it was resolved to hold the sports and ball in aid of the Belgians' on the z4th instant instant instead .'of Em pire Day as was at first intended. Another wise course was the addi tion of Mrs. Hogan and, _Mr. >Thos. Roach to act as joint secretaries; Mrs. Hogan has, on many occasions, given abundant proof of her ability, and the fact that she is again direct ing operations will give- the whole affair a stimulus that was very much. needed. The absence of Mr. W. Naylor will be keenly felt, but the trouble must be got over. The analyst sat in his sanctum alone, His staff had gone home for the nlght; And soliloquised thus, in a critical tone, As he held a retort to the light.' "Yes Yes I I confess, 'tis compouuded with skill, Its components are potent and pure : If thro' chill I fall ill, I most certainly wi'l Taike Woods' Great Peppermint Cure,"'

The London press bureau states that there were 2160 souls on board. Nearly all the first class passengers perished. The sinking of the Lusitania was welcomed with joy in Germany and Austria. The German newspapers regard the, sinking of the liner as Germany's answer to the destruction of Admiral von Spec's squadron. Four other vessels and a British destroyer have been sunk. In each case the crews escaped. There is every indication that the Germans intend to use gas general ly. In order to explain such use Germany has officially stated 'that the British were preparing to throw 2000 starved and ferocious blood hounds into the German lines. The position of the troops on the Gallipoli Peninsular has been im measurably improved by the landing of field guns and several Indian mountain batteries. Mr. Ashmead Bartleet says that the Austra...
