" 1 Am Satisfied." . ? OPINION OF LLOYD GEORGE. In the course of an interview Mr. D. Lloyd George (Minister or Muni tions) said to a representative of the "Secolo":—"I am satisfied with what we are doing. Wo have 2500 factor ies, employing 1,500,000 men and 250,000 women.

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 17 February 1916
Ladies' Letter. A boom in marriages is one of the results of Lord Derby's enlistment n scheme in England. On a recent Sun day at Yarmouth parish church the |, banns of no fewer than 47 couples ^ were called. This matrimonial rush f is attributed to a mistaken belief on j, tho part of many of the bridegrooms that under Lord Derby's recruiting schome they would be passed into tho married groups. In many parishes in tho North of England tho number of marriages beats all records. I Tho Christmas "billies" evidently gave much pleasuro to our soldiers, judging by the letters and post-cards , of Uiank9 that are arriving. Some folks aro rather nonplussed when they learn that their "billy" was given to a man in Cairo, Heliopolis and such ; towns, where there are good shops and tho means of purchasing things they may need. Tho contents of the "bil lies" were chosen as likely to be use ful to men in the trenches, cut off from all comforts and most necessi ties, and were not quite appropriate t...

CORPORAL J. P. RYAN writer, from the Hospital ship Ox ford Shire, under date Dec. 15, as follows:--Just a few lines hoping to find all well at home which is not exactly the case with me at present but it wo'lit he long before I will he on my feet again and going strong. I am too well treated to feel miserable, for the attention of the A.M.C., which I am receiving, is unequalled. It is an Knglish staff on a hospital ship and one could not have better attention or treateinent ; they all understand their work and do it. I am suffer ing from the effects of a burying which I received from a shell while ill the trenche-, but theie is nothing serious, just my back hurt a bit. There was about 3ft, of earth over :ne. My poor mate at one side of in.1 was killed outright and one on the other severely wounded, so I was lucky in a sense. When I •.vent to the I,.A. FA I. another incident took place.

Public Notioes. WE DO MOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS Treating a tooth that has to be filled is an operation demanding great carc and patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will abscess and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time.

THE AUSTRALIAN. ' ("The bravest thing God ever made." —A British Officer's Opinion). The skies that arched his land were blue, His bush-born winds were warm and sweet, And yot from earliest hours ho knew The tides of victory and defeat; From fierce floods thundering at his birth, From red droughts ravening while ho played, He learned to fear no foes on earth— "The bravest thing God ever made!" Tho bugles of tho Motherland Hang ceaselessly across the sea, To call him and his lean brown band To shape Imperial destiny; He wont, by youth's grave purpose willed, Tho goal unknown, the cost uu weiglied, Tho promise of Ills blood fulfilled— "Tho bravest thing God ever made!" We know—it is our deathless pride! The Bpleudor o' his first fierce blow; How, reckless, glorious, undented, Ho stormed thoso steel-lined cliffs we know! And none who saw him scale the height Behind him reeking bayonet-blade Would rob him of his title-right— "Tho bravest thing God ever made!" Bravest, where half the wor...
FAME'S A BUBBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 17 February 1916
FAME'S A BUBBLE. Man longs for fame at any price, If It's but for o day, for one brief hour to cut some Ice, and then to fade away. Where are tiio great celebrities who flourished yester-year? Their fame was borne on every breeze In either hemisphere. Then In the limolight were they all, and honor crowned their names; wo hung their pictures on the wall, In large and gilded frames. But for their pictures we've no use, since all their glory flew; oh, what's become of Captain Loose and whore's I-Took-a-Shoe? To-day with pride man's bosom thrills, next week hlB name Is Sox; or, where 1b Beeoham now, whose pills were worth flvo bones a box? To-day the widely touted chap all self-complacent grins; to-morrow •ho Is off tho map—and where is John nie Binns? Man takes an ase and kills a friend, and goes upon the stage; he thinks his fame will never end— he'll always bo tho rage; then same one takes a gun and kills some six or eight or ten; tho first man's name goes off tho bills, and no'er co...

The Awful Hun. THROWS CHILD FROM TRAIN. It is the "London Mail" that telle> Uiia horrid Btory:— An English lady, who had a baby in. Berlin not long ago, was after wards allowed to return with It to England. In the railway carriage en route with her and the infant were some German private soldiers. _ The little thing began 10 cry. The sol diers • told the lady that if the child didn't leave off crying they would make it their business that it did. The baby continued to cry, whereupon a drunken soldier flung it out of the window. When the distracted mother tried to report the man at the next railway station the soldiers all de clared the story was untrue, and that she was only a vernickte Eng landelm (a mad Englishwoman). Don't interrupt a man when he Is telling you his troubles. If you do, he 'will start over again at the beginning.

The German Dope. PILLS TO MAKE THEM "BRAVE." Much amusement has been caused (says a Petrograd correspondent) by the announcement made from time to time to the effect that the Austro German soldiers are compelled by their superior officers to swallow pills to induce bravery. These pills, -4t was stated, have the quality of ap peasing hunger, but this is not the case. They are prepared from drugs which liave an exciting effect 06 the human organisation. Those who swal low the pills feel slightly intoxicated, but the sensation of cheerfulness soon departs, and there Is a reaction. Peo ple accustomed to take doses of cocaine state that the action of the pills resembles that of the drug. Two pills are given out to each man daily.
Not One Strike. THE SPIRIT OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 17 February 1916
Not One Strike. THE SPIRIT OF FRANCE. M. Albert Thomas, tho French Minister for Munitions, before leaving England for France, addressed a meet ing of the British Labor leaders at the office of tho Ministry for Muni tions In mail week. M. Thomas said tho first result of the war was to take most of tho younger men and the strongest mus cle and trains from tho workshops. Everything was stopped, or nearly everything, for a tew weeks. The men had to serve their country as soldiers under a military system which they had so very often de nounced in their meetings. A few weeks after they became soldiers— about the time of the battle of the Marne—new interests became con spicuous. Industrial needs sucih. as had never been dreamed of came to light for the first time. Enormous quantities of supply were found to ho necessary, though even then no body thought how great that demand would be. It was found necessary to bring back n great many men from the army to the shop, although they considered ...

From Various Sources. It Is characteristic of young men to bellovo that nil women are angels. It is also characteristic of young men not to go to church. A tired looking woman, her husband and family of small children, had evi dently made up their minds to tako a little outing. A heavy rain storm broke out, and women in whito dresses looked as if they were plain marble statues. The working woman I men tion had a very largo artificial red roso in her best hat. Most of tho dye had run out, and she was literally splashed with red—streams of it, from face to waist. She looked intensely wretched. Most women laughed hear tily at her—she was poor, you see, and had no right to an outing, anyhow, and how absurd it is to wear a big red roso will be obvious to any 20-year-old typiste in velvet shoes with whito tops and skin pink stockings to match. But tho most boisterous merriment came from two real ladies (Heal Ladles, you know), who, on a day of tropical heat, were both wearing "Alas, poor ...
