For Our Soldiers. A BALACLAVA HELMET. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 20 May 1915
For Our Soldiers. A BALACLAVA HELMET. For the soldiers who are going to the front, nothing we are told, is likely to prove more acceptable than a supply of these cosy head cover ings. To make one, between three and four ounces of Paton's four-ply fingering and four steel needles, No. 13 or 14, will be required. Begin by casting on 126 stitches in the usual way; then on the first needle knit off 44 stitches, on the second 45, and on the third 37 ; then knit two stitches from the first needle on to the third to complete the round, when you should have 42 stitches on one needle, 45 on another, and 39 on the third. Knit in plain knitting^ round and round, like a stocking, till 3i inches are done; then work in ribbing, 3 knit, 3 purl, for 34 rounds. Now knit plain along the first two needles 87 stitches; turn and knit back; continue knitting backwards and forwards on the 87 stitches till you have done 80 rows. Now knit 49 stitches, turn, knit 11; turn, knit 12; turn, knit 13, and so on, ...

AT THE SUEZ CANAL. Aii oflicer in the Manchester Kugi meut writes from Cairo under date Feb ruary (j: "Wo havo been in the main barracks just a week uow, and events have been moving very quickly here.

Why not support your local Chemist by purchasing Patent Medicines, Toilet Requisites, and Children's Foot's from him, instead of from the storekeeper, when the prices are the same. It is the Chemist's business to supply these specialities, and by supporting him you arc keeping a qualified man in your town, who may be a great convenience should illness, occur in your home. Such an emergency is worth considering. Before pur chasing elsewhere remember that' A., STEINTHAL, Chemist and Druggist, Has Commenced Business in Heyfield.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 27 May 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER j . r rom our Spooi»l Corr®8pond«ni.) It. is exasperating to have in our miiisi a lot of Germans who more or less openly lejoiee in the barbarities willi which their -compatriots on tho other siili* of the world arc sucking to win tlii' war. Hut. it is a difficult mat ter to know just how lo deal with them. They hav« gone through the i'arcu of naturalisation, ami, presuming upon t-ho disposition of Australians, as well as .Britishers to play the game, they-cole-, brate every /hew .display of "frightful iiess- with as muck openness as if they were in the Fatherland. Since the sinking of the Lusitauia-4ho pub lie. resentment of this sort of thing hut become' mora .marked and there are plenty of suggestions as ilo how it should ..be dealt with. None of these are. however, practical. The difficulty is to - discriminate so that the Germans -and there are so.mo though they seem to bo very juuck in the minority who arc loyal to their obligation^ as Australians, and the" ot...

A steep grey wall of liiiiostoiio, pol i.-hod like marble in some -parts by the wash ot the waves; a smooth pavement of sea sand forming. tjio. floor of the irregular horseshoe of the bay; to the north a jutting rock headland, weed draped and wild; to the south a cav erncd cliff, scooped iiito fantastic grot toes by the impact .of .many thousand tides; in front a dark blue lino, whore the summer spa seemed to be fast asleep, lioving softly, while the white winged gulls skimmed and shrieked over its slowly rippling surface-such was tlio seen®. It was a protty spot enough. The Norsemen who had drawn up their pirate galleys there ol: old had called the place Odin's Horseshoe.

WIT IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 27 May 1915
WIT IN COURT. It is not only in the joke of the paragraphiBt or in " Bardell versus Pick wick" that the barrister is scored off. . Thos;; who frequent the courts often hear the bouncing, bumptious, and bullying brief-holder suitimurily brought to book. Here is a case th«t occurred in a suburban court the other' day. A horse dealer was put into the box as a witness, and the opposing council instantly thought that he could make a point by showing the worthless ness of horse-dealers in general, and of this horse dealer in particular. "Now, sir," he Raid, "yon are a horse-dealer, eh 1 And I suppose you consider that you horse dealers are very respectable fellows 1" The horse dealer paused for a moment, and with a leer replied : "Well, I dunno. I .always reckoned as, barring you lawyers, we was the biggest thieves unhung."

GERMANY'S SECRET PLANS. SIR R. BADEN-POWEL'S REVELATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 27 May 1915
GERMANY'S SECRET PLANS. SIR R. BADEN-POWEL'S REVELATIONS. . Lieut.-Geri"ral Sir Robert Baden-, Powell has hitherto "been known as Prince of Scouts and a first-rate soldier. In a boolTjust published he, for the first time, reveals himself in the role oi spy, and in using that word one may well call attention to the author's obser vation that a spy i* "not necessarily a base and despicable' fellow He is often both clever and brave." Some are traitors, and far these S;r Robeit has, like the rest of us, nothing but contempt, but, apart from the high pei eonal interest of this book, it has also, in the flood of light it throws on Ger man methods and intentions, of which we uow witness the sequel, an exttaoi dinarv. value. It exhibits with indis putable evidence the amazing network of espionage in which Germany sought to surround all her possible enemies. It discloses also in full detail a German plan far the invasion of England. Despite the colossal sums spent by Germ an v on secret serv...

MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 27 May 1915
MAKE YOUR DISTRICT' KNOWN. Concerning some parts of the district news comes but Beldam. Now this is not the fault of the Editor, for he bus no miraculous powers of knowing what is happening in all the places iii the area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cauRe the silence to cease. Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood. Give information, but let criticism alone. The information will probably be right, and the public can make the'r own deductions therefrom. Do not bother about grammar Di spelling ; it's the editors work to look after these trifles.

WAR GOMMENTS. (By Silas Snell). Kitchener that the war would commence iu Muy. It> did, as far as Australia waa concerned. The Aus tralians have sustained their baptism of blood at the Daidanelles,- and as might have been expected, their cour age, dash and determination impressed the "whole World. Given the post of honor in the land onslaught on the ' unspeakable Turk," the shock of at tack by our warriors shook the Grilli poli Peninsular like an earthquake, and sent a seismic tremor down t.he diseased spine of the "sick man of Europe"; this is merely the prelude to many suc ceeding shocks that will yet shake him from his blood-stained throne. The casualty lists are saddening, but" we cannot overthrow tyrranv, liberate the captive,- and establish the reign of liberty, without sacrifice. The tree of liberty is watered by the blood of those who freely die in her cause. Those who have fallen are honored by h iving sacrificed themselves in a fi^ht against the greatest, the most immora...
IF THE WAR STOPPED TO-DAY [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 27 May 1915
IF THE WAR STOPPED TO-DAY One of the leading British journals says that if the war Btopped to-uuy history would record a signal German victory and a decisive Britieh defeat,. This statement is roundly challenged by Dr Fitclietfc, the editor of "Life," iu the June issue of that magazine. "Great Britain," Dr Pitchctt writes, ''has suffered no defeat; the foot of the invader has not touched her soil. Her command of the sea is absolute. She has created in a few brief months an army of Continental scale and of at. least Continental quality. But, on the other band, what a.catalogue of failures makes up the story of Germany ! Het whole plan of the war has been wrecked. The 'march to Paris' failed ; the swing eastward of victorious armies, which was to overwhelm Rus sia, has not taken place. Germany has tried to reach Paris arid failed ; (o reRch Calais and failed j to reach War saw and failed. She has lost her colonies under every sky ; and, it must be remembered, she entered on the war. i...

A SBC RET. The world is doing better than it did some limo ago. We've learned some u3eful things our grandsires didn't know. And by the information which exj>ev ience has gained, A number of mysterious things nre readily explained. Why did the flow'ret blush unseen amid the desert air ? Why have some sages lived unknown "in attics chill and bare? Why is reward withheld from men both talented and wise? The answer is as plain as day-they didn't advertise.
