Powlett Express. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. TELEPHONE NO. 8. FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 195. AUSTRALIANISING OUR INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
Uofolett PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. TELEPHONE NO. 8. FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 195. AU STR A LI A NISING OUR INDUSTRIES. EVERY patriot will sympathise with the Attorney-General in his attempt to rescue Australia's metal output from the clutches of the German. Few will attempt to follow Mr Hughes as he shows the foe first under this alia?, then under that ; posing now as British, next as American, finally as Aus tralian. The letters which the Attorney-General pxiblished clearly establish the main point the de tails matter less than nothing. It is fortunate indeed that corres pondence discloses as much as it does, for the foe masquerading as friend does not pen his letters with a view to his own undoing. And it is as fortunate that em ployes have whispered as much as they have, for so long as the real control of an Australian industry remains in German hands, it is a folly to expect subordinates en gaged in that industry to make enemies of their employers. When those concerned are quite con vinc...
JET HUNTER'S FOSTER SON. CHAPTER IX (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
JET HUNTER'S FOSTER SON. (BY IRWIN CLARKE.) CHAPTER IX (Continued). "it's j'oung Joe jNixoa!" exluii: old Captain Obadiah as lie strode across the vaulted cliambc-r, and lifted' the tall stripling in his mighty anus, as a grown man might lift a child. "Poor Joe! he's about the last of our young ones to rtand the murdering heat of the gal lories. : First the boys broke down, then the girls, smothered, with foul air. Joo alone held out. It's grown and seasoned men, not lathy lads, f-.ho'ild face yonder heavy heat and killing ai:1.' "Poor fellow!" "Poor boy!" exclaim ed Mrs Langton and Violet Mowbro v anxiously, as they saw the tall young jet-seeker with his death-like pallor, and dim half-open eyes, laid upon the floor, and propped against the wall, while Obadiah kneeling beside him sup ported his heavy head. The rector, too, looked anxious, while Sir Richaid Mortmain contemplated the unfortun at'iTrn&gcr as he might have done a big fish jusivdrj)jfcti tq^land. There was a bot...

ENGLAND AND GERMANY. A REMARKABLE INTERVIEW. LORD HALDANE'S MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
ENGLAND AND GERMANY. A REMARKABLE INTERVIEW. LORD liALDANE 'S MISSION. Tho London correspondent of |ihe Chicago Daily News has obtained from Lord Haldane a statement which is at once the most interesting and the most comprehensive which any member of the Government has made since tho war began. The portion which deals with the democratisation of the German Gov ernment is a necessary correctivc to the popular opinion that the Allies will or can force a new form of government on tho German nation. ' "We ask you in America," says the Lord Chancellor, "all, whether for or against us, heirs of the early struggles of our race, to realise that when we say we are fighting for life, and we ask for forbearance of America while wo prosecute the struggle. It we appear in a wholly new situation to go beyond some of the rules of the books we shall not violate the dictates of humanity, and shall not turn back the clock of civilisation. What wo want to do is j to spare neutrals all possible inconve...
South Dudley. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
South Dudley. A farewell social was tendered last Thursday evening by the members of the South Dudley Guild and resi dents of the town, to several of our lads, who were leaving for camp. A very large number attended and a most pleasant evening was spent. Our two returned wounded soldiers Privates Will. Maisey and Frank McFall were present, who after being warmly wel comed by the President, Mr W. Page Ferguson, received an enthusiastic welcome from all present. They re counted a few of their experiences in connection with the memorable landing of the Australians at Gallipoli and thanked the gathering for the warm reception extended to them. The Chairman in wishing " Au Revoir" to the departing soldiers, Messrs D. Smith, Roy and Jack Fraser, Syd. Smooker, T. McCoorie, and Ernie Long, referred to the large number who had enlisted from South Dudley, over 40 had answered the call and others were preparing to follow their lead. He wished them all God Speed and fi safe return. A varied pro...
MEDICINAL PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
MEDICINAL PLANTS. Thero is sure to be a scarcity ,of rae dicnal plants this year-especially those grown on the continent. Belladonna, henbane, and foxglove are throe of the principal plants required. Aconite reel, although less used, has hitherto been almost exclusively imported from Germany at a price at which it does not pa yto grow the plant in Great Britain. At the present price, how ever, it would pay to cultivate it. In the damp peaty soil of Scotland, it would grow exceedingly well, as it i naturally a plant of damp peaty pro cl'.-itics. Camomile flowers, for our Oivn supply of which we have hitherto been largely dependent upon Belgium and France, grow well in any damp, grassy soil, though, curiously.,cnoi\'h they form double flowers where thero .good drainage. The flowers when open reqiR.ee to ne protected from tlie rain and gathered on a dry day; but if this can be done in Belgium, the care and foresight of these people may ni least be copied in England.
CHAPTER X. AT THORSDALE PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
CHAPTER X. AT THOBSDALE PARK. "But, Algernon " "I will have it so; or else I shall have to obey the commonest rules of prudence: to think exclusively of my own healtli; and act accordingly. Of courses you can forward mv, wishes, or thwart them, as- you please, I have not lived so long in tlio world without ^ being keenly alive to the amount-the sickening amount of heartless selfish ness that prevails." I have no right, of course, also, to expect to find an exception in your ladyship's case. But "Algernon, dear Algernon " h- ., "But I have the right and shall enforce it, to demand consideration not merel'y for the wishes, but for the wel fare, of an ailing and suffering-per hays dying, husband.

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondence under this heading.—Ed.] (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondence under this heading.-Ed.] (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) Sir,-Allow me to corrccfc some of " Ratepayer'^ " assertions appearing in your last issue, as to Northern droveis giving no trouble; our re spected fellow townsman and coun cillor, Air E. A. Hade, charged them with cutting his fences, and on another occasion narrowly escaped an assault from a ruffianly drover, becauno he mildly remonstrated against the sheep in the drover's charge, being allowed to stray all over his paddocks. It is a well known fact that these men are adepts in duffiing grass. As to the Ranger ; it is a strange circumstance that the poor men running one cow or so on the roads at this season of the year, when grass is scarce, are pounced on. I believe the ranger is on duty now, I expect he will be taken off in dry weather to allow our Northern friends the run of the spelled roads. Yours, etc., Axo'l'lUCIt BATEI'AYEK. Woods' G...
Bass [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
Bass A jumble fair and sale of gifts in aid of the Red Cross fund was opened in the Bass Hall on the evening of the 30th of July, Cr Steenholdt performing the ceremony. A stirring patriotic re cruiting speech was also delivered by Mr Conant. The largo hall was filled. There were many raffles ana the most notable of the sale, with Mr W. O'Aleara as auctioneer, was that of an Australian flag, Mr. Emery was the highest bidder. He presented it to the local State school- after it had finally realised £18 10s. It is expected that the Red Cross fund will benefit by this effort to the amount of about £15 The assemblage was swelled by visi tors from San Remo Corinella, Grant ville, Woolamai and Wonthaggi.
RECRUITING CAMPAIGN. MEM ARE WANTED. Enlistment and Employment. ARTICLE NO. 5. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
MEM ARE WANTED. Enlistment and Employment. (BY A.W). ARTICLE NO. 5. It is gratifying to fmd that many of the employers of Victoria are rising to the highest standard pf patriotism by their treatment of employes who are volunteering for service , with our ex peditionary forces. They clearly see the necessity for stimulating the great recruiting movement, and up to the present have ungrudgingly answered all the calls made upon them in the cause of the Empire. They have de finitely promised to keep open the positions of those gallant young men who have resigned comparative ease and comforts of peace to offer then lives on the altar of freedom and civili sation. Not a few indeed are also making good the diffcre; ce between the soldiers' pay and the s-alary sacri ficed by their patriotieemployes. This action is, of course, not necessary in cases where the volunteers are single young men without anyone actually de pendent on them for support, but it is very essential in those cases of you...
SHAKESPEARE IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
SHAKESPEARE IN GERMANY. Tiio funniest episode of the "war so far has been the formal annexation, of Shakespeare by Germany. It was a bloodless victory, England not offering the slightest resistance. The event was mentioned in a theatre of Leipzig be fore the rising of the curtain on "Twelfth Night." A spccial prologue was written for the historic occasion by one Ernst Ilardt, of Weimar, and it was recited by the Fool in attendance on Olivia. It referred to Shakespeare as a man who "was godhead by his works." England was his "first and native home," but that country has now become so "contrarious" and "ab horred," and so repugnant to his proud, free-born spirit "that ho doth find him self quite homeless there," lieuco as a fugitive lie socks a sec ond home in Germany, "which loves him most of all." And the precious prologue, which ought to find an en during place in the world's catalogue of unconscious humor, winds up with the ard of Avon apostrophising the country ruled by the Royal...
Korumburra County Court. TUESDAY, JULY 27. (Before His Honor Judge Eagleson.) CLAIM FOR DAMAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
Korumburra County Court, TUESDAY, JULY 27. (Before His Honor Judge Eagleson.) CLAIM FOR DAMAGES. John BaJderston, of Glenalvie, claimed from John Sweet, Almurta, £49 dam ages caused by fire through alleged negligence on the part of the defen dant. Mr R. G. Shegog appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr P. H. Conant for the defendant, by whom £5 had been paid into court in full satisfaction. The defence was that all defendant was required to do was done." John Balderston, the plaintiff, said he was a farmer living at Glenalvie. Defendant occupied land adjoining his property on the north. A fire occurred on February 15.

GERMAN SUPERSTITIONS. THE KAISER'S BELIEF IN GHOSIS AND CHARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 6 August 1915
GERMAN SUPERSTITIONS. THE KAlbEK'B UEUEF lis7 GflLUSiS AiND UHAJKMS. A charatceristic of the German peo ple which lias been little noticed in British countries is their superstition. It is not connned to any clasa; it is so widely prevalent, that it may be said to be almost genral. Traces of it are found in tho most exclusive circles. Even the "All Highest" is not exempt from it. In Brunswick, the belief in vampires is common, and here, and elsewhere one finds tho esistenco of witoues stoutly maintained. In tho Ilartz Mountains tho people aro simply steeped in super stitions. There, and in other parts ot Germany, tho protency of tho KoOolds (small gnomes or spirits of the jn'ne) is an article of simple laith. Tho belief in Hattikins, a sort of domestic sprites also lingers in soino country districts. German's bolicvo devoutly that on all Souls' Eve, tho spirits of tho doad re visit tho earth. Throughout taio Fath erland will be found many persons whu believe firmly m tho Evil Eye, a...

NOT RECOMMENDED. There was a terrible commotion in a cosy homo a low days ago. Tho young huBtiand had come homo with a raging headache, and his wife wan nearly dis tracted with anxiety, it was the ilrst time he had been iil since his wedding a few short -weeks before, and the first time the brido had been given a chance to display tho nursing ability she had boasted bo much about during their en gagement. She fussed aronnd, nibbed his head, patted his pillow, and swathed his countcuance in bandages, but still he groaned dismally. Then she started after her doctor's book, and in a short time returned Trith a dark brown drink that looked any thing but appetising. Tho young hus band protested against drinking it, bat tho dear little woman insisted, and lin aily lie gulped it down. llo mado a terribio facc, he gaspod, spluttered, and shivered over the nau seous dose. At last he gaspod out: "What in the world are you trying to do. l'oison ine " "Why, no dear,'' said the young wife, and s...
