NEUTRAL COLORS. VALUABLE IN WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1914

NEUTRAL COLORS. VALUABLE IN WARFARE. One of tlie most striking changes in: modern warfare has been the .adop tion by armies and navies of schemes of: neutral coloring, with the object of making them as nearly invisible as possible when viewed from a distance. The South African war first brought to1 public notice the now famous kliaki, which is to-day the service color of 1 th!e British forces the world over; but for years previously to, the Boer strug ;le the clay-tinted cloth had "bepn uti lised by troops in India, and was origin ally adopted there owing to its similar ity to the predominant coloring of the Indian landscapes. The brown of the South African veldt went, further to : aid the concealing quaViUt-s of khaki, ' and now in active service upon the . French frontier it will be the best color at this' time of the year, wlipn all the foliage is taking on autumn ' tints and the earth in the vicinity of trees will be carpeted with leaves of the^ same hue.

But a Light Horseman whose kit in cludes four horses is a volunteer to he looked at twice, even if he has a dicky leg. The eager soldier had. been pass ed by the doctor in his country town. The fact is set down without com ment. At headquarters the examining doctor's brows went up as he looked at the leg. "Sorry," he said, "but you can't go." The volunteer answered with a brave attempt at philosophy: "Then I suppose I must take myself and my four horses home again." An ] officer heard, and followed the man ! out of the tent. "Did you say four horses?" lie inquired. "Come into this other tent. Doc, have a look at this chap's arm." The doctor did so. "Arm's all right," he said; "he can go. His arm is O.K.

AUSTRALIA AND THE WAR OUR OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND OVERSEAS TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1914

AUSTRALIA AND THE WAR OUR OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND OVERSEAS TRADE. ("What effect will the. war liave upon industrial Australia?" is a query tliat is exercising the minds of many' people to-day, and those who have the welfare of the Commonwealth at heart prophesy great extensions of our manufacturing activities. Our yearly importations of goods from Germany exceed in value £7,000,000, so with that source of supplies closed there is a nice plum to he picked by enterpris ing factory owners who seize the op portunity. The infinite variety of goods, ranging, from textiles and lea therware to cement, crockery, and beer, which can and are being turned out by local..factories, are of "similar nature to the bulk of these large im portations, so when stocks of...-the imported goods run out the local manufacturer should be prepared to step in and secure the trade. Of course, we have not the plant avail able at present for certain of the more advanced manufactures, such as elec trical and other in...

Glenelg and Wannon Valleys [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

Glenelg and Wannon Valleys (By W. P. Little, Casterton). Within the past three or four years there lias Jjeen great expansion of the producing industries in the far west ern part of Victoria, of which Caster ton is the principal trading centre. The main contributing factor in this expansion has been, of course, the ■subdivision of estates into dairy and cultivation, farms which has been car ried out by the Government in the case of Dunrobin, and by many pri i vate owners, such as Mrs. Hudson, I Wentworth Koosli; Miss. Henty, l "Merino Downs"; Mrs. Ann MacLeod, "Talisker"; Messrs. McDonald Bros., "Bella Vista," and others—where the use of the land for dairying, and culti vation has found profitable employ ment for from S00 to 1000 men, wo men and children,-as against the very small number of ■ hands previously en gaged in looking after the cattle and sheep grazed on these lands. The most notable subdivision was, of course, that of Dunrobin, where the settlement is now occupied by abo...

. His Next Order. A short time back, while a certain general - was inspecting a regiment I just about tp depart for new quarters, he asked a young subaltern what would be his next order if he were in command of a regiment passing over a plain in a hostile'country, and he found his front blocked by artillery, a brigade "of cavalry on his right flank, and a morass on his left, while j-liis retreat , was .cut off by a. large 'body of infantry. "Halt! Order arms, ground arms, kneel down, say your prayers!" re plied the subaltern. Common bracken fern laid down in places frequented hy cockroaches •will drive them away.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

II. Wlien Sir Piers Staunton rode forth to meet Sir Guy Montfort as an auxili ary in the onset, it was not his inten tion to do more than meet him, and thus save at once the letter of his en gagement and his own sense of knight ly honor. He'was unfeeling, base, and revengeful;' and the last indignant re jection^ his suit by Edith had deter mined him upon some deed of despera tion that should jjisure him at once the triumph of his malice.-and. the„■ posses sion of his victim. He felt by no means satisfied' that he • should re-! ceive his daughter fr,om the hand of Sir Guy, even should he prove1 instru mental in achieving his victory. These considerations made him reck less and resolute. He swore to win by force what chance might snatch from his grasp. ,H® determined to sur prise her, when unprotected, and beat her off by the strong arm. Accordingly, soon after the appoint ed hour, but not till Sir Guy, no long er able to restrain his impatience and: his ire at the sight of his deadly...

SIR GUY MONTFORI'S ■ VOW. A Tale of Feudal Day»; I. "Nay, I tell thee, Amy, that thou talkest like a witling. It is now nearly three moons since the day he promised to be back, and Sir Spenser Brydone is too good a knight to break his word to man or maid. He must have met with a disaster; or, woe's me; per haps he has heard of my cruel destina tion, and weuld desert me." "And yet," replied Amy, quickly, "little would the Lady Edith Montfort bear to be told of that young knight's bad faith or craven heart. Would my lady deign to take comfort from her poor tirewoman, I would say again chat sure I am he will soon be here; at least, so I must think, talk I never so foolishly about it." "Well, Amy, well, take it not to heart that I spoke impatiently. I must hope, I must hope," returned Edith, with a heavy sigh. "Would to God, girl, that my situation were as lowiy as thine own! how willingly would I exchange with thee!" . These last words were uttered in a suppressed voice; and as she end...

How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to lay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split ' up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from, its advertisement sheets. Then you will effectually damn your town and district.

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

Toot Your Own Horn. A hen is not supposed to have much common, sense or tact, yet every lime she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't/ got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his insistent bray. The busy, little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, 'and cows moo, and Watch dogs barkjg.and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and isqueaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate* before he'll advertise.
