A DESERTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 25 February 1916
A DESERTER. ./-Keith Kennedy, who, it is alleged, deserted from the Australian Light Horse at Colombo, was arrested at Mundooran on Wednesday of last week, by Sergeant Tracey, and taken to Dunedoo Police Station, where he remained until taken charge of by military escort on Saturda}T.

He. then went to South Africa, enlisted under General Botha, and fought that campaigu. He then- re turned to Australia, and has lately been in the Cuouabarabran district.

GERMAN AIMS IN THE BALKANS. ■■ • ■-■■■ -- ■ ■ ;"/ .■■■• .■■■■■ ' I V • Though all Europe has been at wai for the last six months, war is still an entirely new j and grange phenomenon. It is immensely j to realise the .vastness, of its scale, J $3$ incredible numbers engaged in it. Most j difficult of all is it to .understai^L ^p^r^lativeV' importance of events: ■ . The fact that the war has .continued so > long, the absence of any fact that indicates thatlj^Kiyist soon cease; the •enormous losses in^ and wounded, the. incredible expendi ture, the still greater indirect -losses above all, the tremendous fate that' awaits, the con quered—it is all so nerve racking, so disturb ing to the balance of ttise; mind, that difficult as is the task of ever seeing things in true proportion in war, our aptness in that task just now tends to become less and not greater as the thing goes on.

GOD'S ENGLISHMAN. THROUGH 'FRIENDLY EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 25 February 1916
GOD'S ENGLISHMAN. THROUGH 'FRIENDLY EYES. England was innocent of the war (writes M. Andre Chevrillion, in the '''Revue de Paris") ; and she went to war in innocency of spirit. She had never fought Germany, she had no idea of her methods of warfare. War for her was a noble game, dangerous , and exciting, in which that people stood to win whose men are the best; not the mosi&-in tellectual or best educated, nor even, maybe, the best armed; but the handsomest, the heal thiest, the most enduring, the most capable, quite apart from their high spirits and humour, of patient energy, faithfulness to duty, and tenacity of effort. Such men—the men of Kipling—■ English education and all the suggestions of the Eng lish environment have never ceased to produce throughout every gradation of the social hier archy ; for Englishmen this type is a human product special to, England; it constitutes her peculiar strength,;'whigh has always managed , to pull her through the most dgsperate ^crise...
SAYINGS OF THE WAR. THE LAST LEVY OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 25 February 1916
SAYINGS OF THE WAR. THE LAST LEVY OUT. The tragedy and the epic of Servia has been finely set out in a leading article in the New^" York "Tribune/' which does honor to "'ciiat great journal:— . "For liberty, for the right to live,and speak their language, worship their own God, follow their own democratic customs, for all that, means most to that portion of mankind to whom anything but the trivial and the com mon matters, a race is making its last fight,'* it says. "It called its men to the front in 1912, it called its boys in 1913. Now in 1915 the women and the children are with .their husbands and their fathers. The last levy is out, the last line of the race, not the nation or tlio army. . "It is that the Kaiser's host is trampling under foot in the bloody mire of the battle field—it is this which is the last obstacle, the only human barrier, between Germany and. her world power the German prophets have fore told. "Is it not possible that when the memories of Hindenburg's Polish ...
NOT IN VAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 25 February 1916
NOT IN VAIN. "Yet Servia,'"s sacrifice was not in vain. The Osmauli liost, although victorious, was ! „ Itecl ' for a precious year by Servia's self-immolation., "More than that, thousands of Serbs left their homes and crossed the Save and the ; .Danube to take service with Austrian and Hun garian armies, whose duty it became to resist : the Turk. Finally, in the darkest- corner of i the Black Mountain some hundreds of Serbs ! took refuge and kept the faith. The Bulgars and the Greeks capitulated, the Bulgars forgot their race- but a remnant of Servia survived. .: j "' Then it fell out that when the French Re- j volution had stirred Europe and Napoleon's | march had but begun, Servia too felt the stir- j rings of the old lost liberty and struck. A de- S cade,|£wo decades before the'Greek revolution, | which captured the imagination of Europe, first flamed up, Servia raised the old standard j and under an Obrenovitch and a Karageorgo- ; vitch did for the Serbs what France and Eng lan...

"Oddly enough, too, it is the second time ; that Servia has held the gate against the en- j emy. Five hundred years and more ago there j was a civilised Servia, with laws and courts, ! 7 - 'i and all the adjuncts. of civilisation. In that j time there was every promise that from the '' Danube to the Aegean and from the Adriatic to the Rhodopians there would arise a Serb state which would take its place among the great Powers of Europe and under the suc cessors of Duslian complete the-work of empire building. Even Constantinople,"seemed the ulti- j mate prize of the Serb. j "Then came the Turk, and to the Serb was allotted the duty of holding back the flow of Asia as the Hellenic states had held'it back in other centuries.
