THE FASCINATION OF WAR [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914

THE FASCINATION OF WAR War _ ' <j I I abhor! "** ! And yet how sweet The sound along the marching street Of drum and fife, and I forget I Broken old mothers, and the whole Dark butchering without a soul. Without a soul—save this bright treat Of heady music, sweet as hell; And even my peace-abiding feet Go marching with the marching feet, For yonder goes the fife, And what care I for human life! The tears fill my astonished eyes, And my full heart is like to break. And yet 'tis all embannered lies, A dream those drummers make. Oh, it is wickedness to clothe Yon hideous, grinning thing that stalks Hidden in music, like a queen That in a garden of glory walks, Till good men love the things they loathe; Art, thou hast many infamies, But. not an infamy like this, Oh, snap the fife, and still the drum, And show the monster as she is! —Richard Le Gallienne.

How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914

How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubiier in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to lay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you Anil effectually damn your town and district.

THE SERENADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914

THE SERENADERS. A fiddler tried a serenade; She didn't smile on him. She scorned the music that he made Zim-zim. A fellow with a banjo came. The damsel didn't think It worth, emerging for his tame Plink-plink. The third arrival won the girl, Although his tune was punk, lie drove up with a noisy whirl, Honlt-hunk! Christopher A. Papageorgacoupoulos took the name of Moore because it was less. A husband whose convivial habits have been a source of worriment to his wife recently came home one night after a particularly joyous ses sion and laboriously proceeded to pre pare for a bath before retiring. Just as he was about to step into the tub he suddenly recoiled and backed up against the wall. A little green and yellow turtle seemed to be staring at him from the soap-dish. A chill be gan to steal up and down his spine when he discerned a pink duck nest ing in the sponge rack, a purple snake peeping from the waste pipe, and several bright-colored fish lying about the floor.

YOO SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GEN DINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and ' tl^e refinement by special processes give • it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Dpmand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit-that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want s quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S' EXTRACT.

MEN AND LADS FOR FARM WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914

MEN AND LADS FOR FARM WORK. The steamer " Themistocles," which is expected to arrive in Melbourne about the beginning of October, is bringing to Victoria a party of seventy men and one hundred and seventy lads, whom it is desired to place in employment in the country districts as soon as possible after their arrival. The Immigration Bureau, of 555 Flinders Street, Melbourne, is desirous of receiving information from any farmers or other country employers who may be in need of labor. Owing to the dry conditions which are being experienced in the northern parts of the State, it is recognised that the demand for farm labor is, under present circumstances, not nearly 60 great as would be the case under ordinary conditions, but it is hoped that all em ployers who may have any vacancies, or who may have opportunities of placing men in any way, will lose no time in sending in the necessary advice.

COUNCIL JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914

COUNCIL JOTTINGS. No fewer than four deputations were introduced by Cr McGregor. Mr Turner (rabbit inspector) asked if the council was willing to accept the responsibility of keep ing the bridges throughout the shire free from rabbits. If not, the owners of the adjacent land would be held responsible.—The council, which had erected wire netting to protect certain bridges, and which body was causing a special clause to be inserted in all specifications for new bridges, agreed to accept the responsibility. Mr Giblett (speaking on behalf of Mrs Wilson, Mr Rankin a,nd himself) asked the council to con sider the matter of giving them an outlet. He explained that the road surveyed around the western side of Mt. Speed was of no use to them, and the offers made by himself and Mr Wilson would—if this route were adopted—be " off." The President assured Mr Giblett that the matter would receive due con sideration. Three Trafalgar residents waited upon the council anent wandering stock and the d...

A K1NEMA CITY. INHABITANTS ALL ENGAGED IN PICTURE BUSINESS. j 1 William Kirby, a kinenia actor, was recently mauled to death by a lioness [ at Universal City.

THe place is known as Universal City, and is situated in Los Angeles, its rise is entirely due to the kine matograph craze, for one-half of the town consists of studios, scenery fac tories, a zoo, where trained animal | actors are kept, sheds for housing air j ships and aeroplanes which partici j pate in "movie" plots, and carpenters' | shops where fifteen master carpenters work all day in producing "properties" lor the film pictures.

Airiong the several landing rights obtained for cables was one that Ger many most desired of all, viz., the one from Herbertshoe to Cooktown, in Queensland, but an event arose when the cable was about half made that caused me to withdraw from that spe cial concession.
