CORRESPONDENCE THE LATE TRAIN. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 10 February 1916

CORRESPONDENCE THE LATE TRAIN. TO THK HDITOR Sir — Kindly permit mc through your columns to follow up the mat ter of the serious grevience against the Railway Department so well stated by your paper in last issue. It is worthy of note that in the Metropolitan area today there are from 30 to 40 passenger trains being run for the convenience of the pub lic, and the fares charged arc about one half the rate paid by the unfortunate who lives in the country, but yet there has.been no reduction of the empty carriages that arc being hauled for 3G5 days yearly over these lines at hours when the public are not needing them. And now at a time when our dislricts arc delivering the largest wheat yield in our history, and business, on that account is better than ever before, we arc denied the right "of a decent and convenient daily train scrvicc. Let mq appeal to the public ot the surrounding districts to shake off their lethargy and demand as citizens some" of their many dues, which so'far have...

NORTHERN DIS1RICT STANDARD with which is incorporated the Boort ' Standard, KorongValc Lance, and Quam- j batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursu:;_, Febiuary 10. Criminal Strikes. The torrent of abuse which a scction of the Labor press is pouring on the Prime Minister shows that he struck home when he denounced the parasites of Labor. These fomcnters of a senseless class war are playing the game of the Hun. Here they arc staying the output of metals absolutely necessary to the success of the Allies ; in Great Britain they are allowing their countrymen in the trenches to be needlessly slaughtered by way of protest against the "dilution of skilled labor." They strive to make the position of the capitalist in tolerable, and, not content with that, create disturbances in State and Commonwealth workshops, in cluding even those which arc press ing on with tue building of sorely needed ships. Their flagrant dis-j honesty annoyed Messrs Archibald a...

A Metropolis. To and fro about the town Tho dei.d wieu hurry up and down: Whirling corpses, moving dust, Driven of gold and greed and lust, Filmy-eyed and groy of ctaeekT How they babble, bite and squeak! Tho sun above thera—cloudy-clad, Makes all tho silver hearans glad. Tho living winds shako from their wings A sense of quick, immortal things. Tho sea's mysterious passion beats In rhythm through tho troubled steets. And down tlie virgin steeps of night Like music falls the far moon's light: Dut these are dead meu, with no thought « Of tilings that are not sold or bought. Tho woids that movo their gleaming lips— (Bright the grave-damp glints and drips!)— Aro all of dross, are all of gold, Aro all of things they've bought and sold; Tho lights that glisten in their eyes— J (Filmy-bright the grave-damp lies!)— Dart and flicker, leap and toss, At their tales of gain and loss. Up and down and to and fro In hurried crowds tho dead men go; They dance, they stamp each other down, They flgh...

NOTICE. The "Northern District Stan dard'^ thoroughly representative of the district in all matters apper taining to its progress, and with an assured circulation greater than any individual paper reaching the same community, its value as an advertising medium is undoubted. In politics it is democratic and . independent, recognising ability and merit in the man as well as the party. Much effort and cash are wasted in ephemeral advertising by busi ness people generally. The "Stan dard which goes direct to almost every home and business house in the whole of this vast district offers the one genuine medium for those who appreciate a return for the money they expend. The intellectual public are invited to compare the literary worth of the '"Standard," under the editor ship of Mr U \V. Macfarlan, during the past ye. r, with far more pre tentious journals, and if they con clude that it is entitled either to business patronage, or literary assistance, or Liotli, the manage ment invites th...

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 10 February 1916

Ladies' Letter. An ultra-patriotic matron who has .wo sons serving under tho flag, when several guests were gathered in her Irawlng-room recently, was holding forth with much vehemenco on the lubject of purchasing goods manufac tured in Germany. Sho asserted. 'Every woman should bo careful to see that whatever articles she bought wore free from that Infamous brand ' Made in Germany.' Now I go so far as to refuse to take any gloves which are not stamped with tho name of an Allied or neutral manufacturer. See! tho ticket insido this glovo says 'Manufactured in Switzerland.'" "That's all very well," responded one visitor who has a knack of examining into things; "but look at tho inside margin." Ilero sho held up the glove, which had been turned inside out for inspection, and the unhappy purchaser read aloud the incriminating notice, "Mado in Germany." Dr. Robert Strong, of Wallace di vorco fame, is considered one of the best-dressed men in London. He is all of '15, and has just plucked...
