COMPANIES WORTH MILLIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

COMPANIES WORTH MILLIONS. Stupendous indeed are the total i figures of the authorised capital of some of the great industrial enterpri ses of England. Little did Sir Wil liam Lever think, for instance, when he worked in his father's grocery shoip in Bolton, and ultimately set up for himself in Wigan, that he would one day be the director of a great business whose authorised capital is now £30,000,000. Then there - is the genial Sir Thos. Lipton, who as a boy of nine was adding half-a-crown a week to the scanty family purse as an errand boy, and who is now managing direc tor of a prosperous company with an authorised capital of £2,250,000. No less than £10,000,000 is the au thorised capital of Messrs. J. and P. Coats Limited, who supply the world with thread; while Mr. Selfridge con trols a business with £1,800,000 capi tal. The agitation regarding the dyeing industry recalls the fact that the Bradford Dyers' Association Limited has an authorised capital of £5,000,000; while the ever...

Had Done Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

Had Done Enough. "Gentlemen," said an ex-Army om cer, who was a candidate for Parlia ment, "I have fought for Old Eng land. I have often had no bed but the battlefield, and no canopy but the sky. I have marched over the fro zen ground till every step has been marked with blood." His story was all right till a coun trified-looking voter shouted out: "Did you say yer'd fought for Old England?" "Yes," replied the candidate. "And that you had slept on the ground with only the sky for a cover?" "Certainly." "And that your feet bled in march ing over the ground?" "That they did," cried the exultant candidate. "Then I'm sure you've done enough for your country. Go home and rest. I'll vote for the other fellow." "I wonder," remarked Mrs. Yeronga, as she put down her paper, "what they will do with the Kaiser when the war's, over? I suppose they'll take his crown away and make him look for another job." "Perhaps," agreed Yeronga, "and I rather fancy I know the job he'll choose—a diver's." "Wh...

MISCELLANEOUS HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

MISCELLANEOUS HINTS. A little paraffin in hot starch Trill prevent it from sticking. Chocolate and cocoa stains can be removed by washing the fabric ■with soap in tepid water. Clean the steelwork of kitchen ranges when discolored, by rubbing it with a rag soaked in vinegar. Paraffin will remove wheel grease, fresh paint and grass stains from clothes that are to be washed. Cakes will not stick to their tins if the latter are placed on a damp cloth when removed from the oven. To bake potatoes quickly boil them in salted water for ten minutes "be fore putting them into the oven. Salt will remove egg-stains from silver. Just take a pinch and rub the spoon between thumb and finger. Paraffin will remove grease from granite-ware. A little placed on a dust-cloth will make the furniture •bright, and on dark woodwork does wonders. Substitute for Cream.—Warm half a pint of new milk, and, when just on the boil, stir in a well-beaten egg. Turn it into a basic to cool and you will scarcely tell t...

LESSONS FROM PAST SEASONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

I LESSONS FROM PAST SEASONS. Farmers learned last season what a little hay or straw it took to keep sheep and cattle alive, provided they had coi:served the hay—and water. Selling all the hay and burning straw is almost as bad as growing none, as far as feeding your own stock is concerned. Hay made from grass in times of plenty only costs the labor of stack ' ing, and, even if kept three years, is ' sure to be wanted. Hay and ensilage stacks and water are the best insurance against drought All stock will eat ensilage during most of the year, especially in a dry summer. Fed with straw or hay, there is nothing better to fatten on. Well-made and weighted stack en silage will keep over two years. Don't burn the straw. Straw chaff and molasses will keep stock in store condition over a certain period. Have a few straw stacks about- the farm. Fat years are useless if robbed by the lean. Irrigation has proved to Vic torians that land that was a desert in dry years, when married to water pro...

GERMANY'S WIRELESS STATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

GERMANY'S WIRELESS STATIONS. There are about ten 'wireless sta tions in Prance, the most powerful be ing that of Eiffel Tower. The Ger mans have a great many more, and especially the great station of Naueri, with a constant transmitting power of 6000 miles, occasionally raised to 7200 miles. They have a similar post in Spain, and another at Sayville, Long Island, opposite New York. The three pylons of the latter, each nearly 500ft. high, and all the apparatus, were manufactured in Germany, and sent from Rotterdam to Hoboken by a Holland-Amerika steamer. When the cables connecting America with Germany were cut she had already prepared, therefore, a perfect substi tute, or nearly so, as wireless mes sages are always more or less public property. In addition to this the su perior power of the German waves temporarily paralyse, at least to a great extent, other communications. Secondary stations have been erect ed in each of the forty-one States of the Union, with four supplementary one...

THE OLD SCHOOL RE-YISITED. The Old Boys and Girls arrived in drags and motors and by train, discussing the old days and pointing out many- a gorse-covered waste on the way as the site of some former well-known habitation, bringing up at last at the old school—tKe. school, that is to say, that replaced the ancient building, and is. if the school com; mitiee can get their way, to be replaced in its turn by a new one. / The Old Boys have been very good to the school, and have lavished gifts upon it and the scnolars, and are held in corres pondingly high esteem. The reunion is a great day for the young boys and girls as well as for the old ones. They were drawn up to greet their predecessors, and the School Committee, under the chair man, Mr S. Station, in their name offered a hearty welcome. In former years the borough council used to offer a municipal welcome, but the borough is no more, and the citizens and Committee joined forces in the reception.

Scarsdale Old Boys. TENTH ANNUAL REUNION. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

TENTH ANNUAL REUNION. Scarsdale's great day of the year—the Old Boys' B,eunion, on Friday, 8th Oc tober—was favored -with ideal spring weather; and although the Shadow of the Sword is over everything now, the Re union was an unqualified success. Per haps there was not so much irresponsible levity as in former years ; but when it is remembered that there is hardly an Old Boy or an Old Girl who has not ope or more dear ones at the front, taking an honorable part in the greatest of all ware, it is not surprising that a note of serious ness should nave crept into the speeches even of those who are usually most care free on occasions of festivity and rejoic ing. But this did not appreciably detract from the whole-hearted enjoyment of this reunion of old and tried friends ; perhaps it deepened and hallowed it.

VERSE FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

VERSE FROM ENGLAND. Mrs. Frank Mitchell, sister-in-law of Madame Melba, writes from the Mitchell home, "Doonside," Burnley street, Richmond (Vic.):—"I note that you generally include a patriotic poem in your paper, so thought this one would be of interest to your read ers. It was widely read by our boys of the First Expeditionary Forces, and was, I think, taken from a Brighton (Eng.) paper": — THE SENTRY'S LULLABY TO A SHIRKER. Hush thee, gentle shirker, sleep In thy nest so warm, Foes from thee I'll strive to keep; Sleep, then, fear no harm. Not far off the guns are rumbling, Homes and ancient temples tumbling; Still I'll guard thee, sweet civilian, Thou and that refraining million. Though the icy night winds chafe, What care I since thou sleep safe. Hush! Hush! Let no dreams thy sleep disturb As to landing Huns; We will keep them on the curb, Guard thee from their guns. Let no foolish dreams of duty Mar thy sleep and spoil thy beauty. Hush! Think not of Belgium's sor row, Thou has...

PODDLES AND THE TELEPHONE. He Does All the Talkingjas Usual, but Not Through the 'Phone, "Now, my dear," said Mr. Poddies, standing 'before his newly-installed telephone, and preparing to explain its mysteries and advantages to his wife. "Now, my dear, this is going to prove the most convenient thing we ever had in the house. When 11 want to talk to anyone I just turn this handle and say 'Hullo!' and the girl at the exchange says 'Hullo,' and 1| tell her who I want, and she calls him up. Now, I'll ask for Mr. Speckwick," and Mr. Poddies took the receiver off instead of leaving it on, as he should have done, and turned the handle vig orously. "What does he say?" asked Mrs. Poddies, cocking her head on one side, as a woman always does when her hus band is trying to listen. "He doesn't say anything yet," growled Mr. Poddies. "He isn't like you.' He waits until he has got some thing important on his mind, and then he says it. Hullo! Hullo!" roared Mr. Poddies, giving the handle a viciou...

SKY PERISCOPES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

SKY PERISCOPES. In the c'ties that are liable to be visited by Zeppelin airships, the watchers on the lookout for raiding craft have suffered from stiff necks, and also eye-strain, from long-contin ued gazing at the heavens to detect hostile aircraft, and to meet this diffi culty. opticians have devised a special form of sky periscope. This instru ment is constructed on the same gen eral principles as those used< by sub marines, and the type that has been bo widely adopted for use in th« trenches on land. The device is a simple arrangement of mirrors that the watcher can hold in his hand, anc! which enables him to scan the en tire vault of the sky while looking down in a convenient and natural position. It has been found so con venient that a much better and more constant lookout is maintained.

FATEFUL EIGHT. Some Tragic Coincidences. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

FATEFUL EIGHT. Some Tragic Coincidences. A tragic interest attaches to the last letter of Lance-Corporal Arthur Llewellyn Davies, 8th Middlesex Re giment, of Duke-road, Chiswick, who was killed during his first spell of duty in the trenches. Writing to his wife the day before his death, he said:— "Do you know, dear, that al though we left Hounslow on the Friday, we did not sail from South ampton until Sunday, the 18th of April, that fateful eight again. It seems peculiar that the number eight should crop up so often in our lives." Davies was born on February 8, 1888. He was married on September 18, 1912, and his only child was horn on October 28, 1913, being christened on January 18 of the following year. His number on the District Rail way, on which he was employed as a conductor, was 180. After serving with his battalion at | Gibraltar, he sailed for England on February 8 last, left Southampton ' for Fiance on. April 18, and was kill ed in action on the 2gth of the month.
