THE DRILL CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 25 September 1914

I THK DliJfiL CLASS. The drill class (whicli meets bi weekly, at the Mechanics' Hall), has wonderfully improved under the aogis of its drill-master, Mr. C. H. Smith (now resigned from the posi tion on account of his leaving the district). A casual loiterer in the precincts of the institute can readily recognise that the trainees have now acquired quite a rhythmic, martial tread, halting abruptly at the stac cato word of command. But, up to thq present,., they have been appar ently too diffident to phow them selves to the admiring public gp.7.e. Possibly this bashfulness will pre sently bo overcome.

Original Poetry. THE LION AND THE EAGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 25 September 1914

Original Poetry. THE LION AND.THE EAGLE. The German Eagle flew o'er the wood,. With an iVl wiVl to do-no good; He clawed and swallowed not a few, Belgian men and women tooi. He ate Louvain, and worried the Entente' And ever since has grown quite fat. With Strasburg sausage and the like of." that. ; One day as the Eagle soared o'er the moor. He saw an house with open door. And by the fixe an old man sat. Roasting a Belgian goose soaked in fat~ The savoury fumes soon reached his maw,. Which set to work his under jaw. In walked tbe Eaglo large as life. And quickly asked for fork and knife. The Eagle stuck his claws upon the fonder And loudly shouted " now, surrender," The merry thought, drum stick and back,. Like lightning vanished in a crack. Now, said he, what is to follow, What is the next thing I can swallow, ?or I havo not had quite enough And do not think you're very tough. The little man sank on his knees, And said, O spare my life, do please.. Then with many pitiful sighs, Brou...

The Diabolic Mummy Case. AN EXTRAORDINARY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 25 September 1914

The Diabolic Mummy Case. AX KXTRAOKDIXAUY STOKV. Everyone has heard of the malign Egyptian mummy case which was brought to the British Museum some 1 years ago, and whose presence dealt death and disaster to attendants and others who looked upon it. A story is now being told in well-informed cir cles which is said to have emanated from one of the Museum authorities. From this it would appear that sev eral of the Museum attendants, con vinced that they were in danger of their lives, presented an ultimatum that the coffin-lid must be removed from their vicinity or they would re sign. Their demand was consider ed by the curators, and, in view of the catalogue of calamities that somehow seemed connected with the mummy case, their demand was con sidered reasonable. A replica was accordingly made and painted in exact facsimile, and this was exhibited to the public as the real thing, no outsider being any the wiser or the worse. The coffin itself was deposited in an obscure cellar in the va...

SAC1U3D COS CERT.. Last Sunday evening a sacred con cart was hold here, the liberal col lection, taken up going towards the organ fund. In this connection, thanks are due to the.

Among the items call ing for notice were the duets,; "In Jesus,", and "Who Could it Be?"; also "The Lord Is My Shepherd," and "Come Unto me" by Mesdames B'akiston and Mansfield respectively. The latter lady finely rendered, as a recitation, the grand blank verse of "The Leper;" the pathos and despair in the anguished cry, "Unclean!: Un clean;" that the elocutionist was r.-'tist enough to stress effectively, thrilled her hearers. Other items provided wore th^ hymns, "Nearer my God to Thee," "Lead Kin...
