The news that the Germans nave been tilling the air by wireless in order to smother messages sent uiu by their enemies proves that the pigeons will still be of great value as messengers.

AVIATION AND WAR. DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW ARM. THE POSITION IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1914
AVIATION AND WAR. development of the new arm. the position in europe. The -war now being waged will test, many theories regarding the part which aviation will play in modern warfare. In Tripoli the Italian army used this new arm of military forces to reconnoitre and also to attack the Arab encampments by means of bombs. In the Balkan war the avia tors played an important part, but this war must prove the adaptability of air craft, of both types, lighter-than air and heavier-than-air. It is report ed that five Zeppelin airships have been destroyed. It is generally admitted that the French aviators are the most skilled and the most daring in the world, and in the number of aeroplanes as in the number of firms which make the machines, she has a great advantage over any other nation. Both Ger many and Great Britain have made very rapid progress, and Great Bri tain's aeroplanes form a very formid able branch both for attack and de fence. The French Air Fleet.

YOU 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 GENUINE 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 the 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. Exhibitions by Australian cham pions of weight-living and wrestling, classical posing—by Mo...
THE FRENCH WAR HORSE [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1914
THE FRENCH WAR HORSE 'Horse-racing was a sport in France before England, and every English historian of horse-racing is careful to point out the benefits the islanders de rived from a much-prized gift of "run ning horses" the French King Hugh Capet presented to Athelstan, a grand son of Alfred the Great, away back'1' . about a thousand years ago. But, how- ■ \ ever backward the Englanders may have been, and however progressive the French, in the production of fleet horses in those far-off and mystic days of Saxon rule, England has outstrip ped the world for its horses between the times of Henry I. (A.D. 1100) and - the present day. It was not until af ter the downfall of Napoleon, until well into the twenties, that the French really recognised the great advantage of the thoroughbred, or attempted any thing like an organised effort to sys tematically improve the breed, with a view of improving their war horses. But in 1833—at the beck of the reign- . • ing monarch, Louis Philippe—cam...

Federal Klections. GIPPSLAND. Mr Terrell, the returning officer, de clared the poll on Friday afternoon, as follows :— Wise Bennett 15,484: 14,874 Majority for Wise 610 Mr Wise said that, in rejecting the supporters of the Fusion Ministry, the people of Gippsland had done the same as the mass of the people of Australia, who at this critical time in the history of the Commonwealth would not have a Fusion Government, and preferred to place the Labour party in power. It was said at the time of the previous elections that the rolls were in a bad condition, and that double-voting had taken place. The Fusion party in power had purified the rolls, and was beaten. Mr Bennett said that when he entered the field in 1913 he was successful on a poll of 75 per cent, of the electors, then the highest ever polled in Gippsland. This time the vote was 84 per cent., and he had been defeated. He gave his op ponents the warmest praise for their organisation work. The result of the poll spoke volumes fo...
