S.O.S. WIRELESS NOW COMPULSORY ON BRITISH SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914
s.o.s. WIRELESS NOW COMPULSORY ON BRITISH SHIPS. Through the German ship-owners not having vessels equipped with wireless telegraphy much of their mercantile marine have come easily into our hands. British steamships have now, under a compulsory law, to instal wireless on all vessels carrying 50 or more persons, including the crew6. To the famous S.O.S. signal ... — . . (the dots representing S and the dashes O) is to be added the signal signifying danger, as in the case of icebergs. It is the T T T danger sig nal — — —. The dashes are the same as for the letter O, the distinc tion being that the spaces are wider. Failure to use the wireless signal in case of distress or danger will sub ject a master of a ship to penalties. The Titanic disaster, and not the war (it may be added) has brought about compulsory wireless. "John," she said, as he settled down for his after-dinner smoke, "I've got a lot of things I want to talk to you about." "Good," said her husband affably. "I'm glad to ...

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914
Toot Your Own Horn. A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of . intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray., i The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and " Uvatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and (squeaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiecd that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.
PADDY ON FLOATING MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914
PADDY ON FLOATING MINES. "There's things that oughter be, and things that oughtn't to be," said Paddy the Boots. "Can you lend us a fill of tobacker?" The oracular sentence meant that .Faddy had in his head thoughts which craved utterance; the request meant that the thoughts would not be revealed unless in response to gifts. "That's good tobacker," he said, when his pipe was fairly going. "Did y'ever stop to think of the rights an' wrongs of scatterin' them floatin' mines all over the sea?" "England wanted to have them pro hibited at the last international con vention," said the boarder, "but Ger many would not agree. You see, Eng land has enough naval power to de stroy an enemy's trading ships. But Germany hasn't. So Germany would not give up the right to sow mines." "I couldn't have put plainer, me self, somethink that everybody knows," Paddy said graciously. "That's just how it is. But a ordinary bloke can't 'elp thinkin' it's a dirty trick to spread gelignite an' nitrer-glissrin...

DR. FITCHETT ON THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914
DR. FITCHETT ON THE WAR : ♦ " Life's" Second War Number (October issue) contains many good and i timely things. The chief attraction, among many war features, is a masterly study of the war by Dr W. H. Fitchett, the author of "Deeds Th*t Won the Empire " Under the general title of " The War of All the' Centuries," Dr Fitchett writes three separate articles—one on "The Forces Behind the War"; a second on "The Scale of the War and Its Strategy''; and a third on " The Study of the Actual Fighting." 0)n themes such as these Dr Fitchett writes with telling effect—for he has three titties visited the scene of the present war, and draws on a wide knowledge of history won in writing many popular and patriotic books. " The Story of the War," as re-told each month by Dr Fitchett in " Life's" Special War Numbers, should create a big demand for this popular Australasian magazine. The October issue, nnder review, also contains the second part of " Mawson's Own Story," of which " Life" has se cur...

[ GAY CITY SADDENED. BERLIN'S CHANGED ASPECT. THE REALM OF NAUGHTINESS. "Berlin is distressed." There is tre mendous signification in trie laconic cable message. Even those who have resided in the German capital for an extended period can hardly realise the awful meaning of the contrast pre sented. The progress of the city dur ing the past few years has been phe nomenal. With the financial advance ment there arose luxurious , tastes among all classes. Berlin was the gayest city in Europe.
