TO THE EDITOR OFP THE ADVERTISEf. Sir,--Yoir correspondent G. u. N. gets very mletd in the first part of his letter in y ar ssue -of 2pth last. First he denies writing letter l1i your issue of the 12th lust. ([ am not surprised). lie then claims a quotation from it as his own, admltting he wrote it. Comment unnecessary. In con tra.t I will admit an accidental grammatical error in my last through writing hurriedly.

She was called just Mary. And the manner of their acgnuait ance was in this wise. Being confid ential secretary to the editor man, Mary was bound to see the letter David wrote. It impressed the chief and it more than impressed Mary. Her heart simply ached. "You sec, air," the letter ran, "E am alone in the world, and it makes a chap feel out of things when the other fellowns hear from their wives, and sweethearts. I've never had a letter since I've been out on this old tub, for there's nobody to write me a line. I'm not goxl at making friends easily. I wish, sir, you could put me in touch with a girl who'd correspond."

THE COALITION PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 3 May 1918

THE COALITION PARTY. There's a coalition party, To look after State affairs;   And the Labor crowd are tarty, For they thought the job was theirs'. They'd assistance from the Corner, For some extra railway crumbs ; But dubbed Lawson Jacky Horner, When he picked out all the plums. Though he helped them with their scheming, Poor economy to slate ; He was really never dreaming, That they'd want to share the gate.     When they heard the joint decision,   They received it with a laugh ; While one Member, with derision, Simply called it shandygaff. But perhaps when they deal with finance, That party will not be a botch ; For we know they're as careful as ants, As a Member remarked, they are Scotch. So we wish them good luck in their mission,   A happy financial success ;     Though a surplus may be their ambition, They may make the deficiency less.       — KOO...

A CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 3 May 1918

A CONFERENCE.   The party met in Conference To solemnly debate, Those men of nerve and commonsense New laws to rule the State. They did decide that Billy Hughes Must not to England go To air his great Conscription views When Australia had said No. And, if you ask the reason why They wish to keep him here, In angry tones they will reply : It is not love but fear. But if he'll do as he is bid, And not talk quite so fast,   They'll let him go like Anstey did — That is before the mast. Democracy that they revere Most grossly was insulted ; For Forest has been made a Peer, And they were not consulted. And then they talk of terms of peace, And of Australia's share, And say that when the war does cease That Labor must be there.   And now the last,but not the least, To make the job complete, The talk devolves into a feast Of something they can eat. They than and there agree to say Bread shan't be baked at night ; All such work must be done by day That ...

QUEER ARMY SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 3 May 1918

QUEER ARMY SUPERSTITION. ---0--- The most generally-accepted super- tition among soldiers is that of the danger of using one match to light three cigarettes. It is a crime al- most for anyone to light the cigar- ettes of two companions with the   match he has just used to light his own. The reason, it is said, is that such an action means the speedy death of one, if not all three of the group. In proof many stories are told, but one in particular. A group of men were billeted in a house far back from the battle-line. There had not been a shell dropped in the villages for several weeks. A recruit suddenly passed a box of cigarettes among his newly-found friends. He struck a match, and before any of the group had realized it three cigarettes had been lighted. When it dawned on the group what had occurred there was a deep silence for fully a minute. The offender on being reproved tried to laugh his fears away, but he couldn't. Two hours later the first shell in weeks struc...
