MY HEART'S RIGHT THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 11 May 1915

She saw it through the win dow. • 'As a rule she flew down the garden path to fetch her letter; for the old postman was " rheu inaticky," and his decent from the cart apt to be difficult and profane. But to-day she seemed rooted to the ground. Even when- old Jonas rattled his gnarled knuckles indig snantly on, the door, could she scarcely lmove to open it. The letter would be in a long envelope. It would be grand and offi cial. It would be from the War Office, On His Majesty's Ser vice, to tell her that .;er :Jim dead. Quite distinctly she could see the letter through the closed" door. It hardly seemed neces sary to open and take it in. Yet she opened, and she took it in. Her hand shook so pitably .that she dropped the letter twice before she' regained her seat. .It was not from the War Of fice. " It was neither grand nor official. It was in Jim's handwriting, written in pencil as usual, yet wit...

FOR WAR OR PEACE? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 11 May 1915
FOR WAR OR PEACE ? BY PASTOR RUSSELL Text: "In -everything give thanks" (I: Thess, v. 18). Reviewing briefly the condition of the world, the speaker declared that it must be difficult for the majority of people to determine correctly the nature of the thanks they would offer to God. Three hundred and fifty millions of humaqity, our blood relatives, are at war, see;knz to destroy each other. Ninety million Ame ricans, deeply interested in them. arc in vited by the Honorable President and Governors of the several States to render thanks to the Almighty. Surely no one of even average heart and head has cause for other than great thank fulness to our Creator. Life itse!f is a blessing, a boon. "Our lines have fallen to us in pleasant places." Those who feel no gratitude are surely soqred by discon tent, the fruitage of ignorance, selfiahness. sin. How appropriate, then, that each and all bow heart and head before the Giver of every good and perfect gift ! To what ever extent this course...

The Victorian Death Rate. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 14 May 1915
The Victorian Death Rate. It is not surprising that the con ditions of the Victorian mortality returns should have aroused misgiv ing in the southern State, or that a Parliamentary Select Committee should have been appointed to take evidence in Sydney on the subject of vaccination, with special reference to its influence as exerted in its com pulsory application to infants. WVe learn from the Commonwealth Year Book, published by M'r. Knibbs, the Government Statistican, that in 1912, the 'crude" death rate of Victoria -i.e., the number of deaths per 1000 of the population-was 12.23, where as in the Commonwealth as a whole, it was only 11.23. The highest mor tality recorded was in that delight fully salubrious part of the Com monwealth known as the Northern Territory. The crude death rate there was 19.95 per 1000. The low est (excluding the.Federal Territory, Swhere the circumstances are excep tional)'was in South Australia, viz., 10.28 per 1000. In New South Wales it was 10.86, and i...

A MEAN TRICK. Mr. A. E. Moore' relates.having a rather unique expericnce caused by some 'experimental xmiechanic": who sought to play a practical joke on him.' With a long trip' before him, Mr. Moore instructed one of his hands to fill the petrol tank of his maotor care, and was aFrsured .that this was done. Ordinarily this supply should run a car 160 miles at least, To the consternation of. the occu-, pants '?hen about 50 miles .on theiri Journey the petrol gave out. An ex amination or the tank showed that a prank,. similar to that lately ex perienced by a Bungendore car own cr, had been played. Motorists.are wondering, is this the: same, chap. ar-. rived' at Qucanbcyan.. Fortunately Mr. Moorm, who is a: good general, has supplies of' petrol at, different places,.and on :tl!is' occasicrwhis platn stood-him in:.good stead. _Moral: never ?ujdge-your tank by the qilan. tity of petrol appearing `therein-it might be something else.
