A Message About War. The following is an extract of a letter sent by Lieut T. G. Mitchell, formerly of Queenscliff now on a visit to the. Old Country, and. re ceived by members of the 70th In fantry, dated September 18th from Edinburgh: 'I have volunteered for service here and have been trying to get in but being Australian and having no papers on me, I am inding great trouble. I went to London last week to try to get in there. I have applied for Kitchner's new army, Royal Fusillers-and Middlesex regi ment, but there are hundreds of ap plicants. Well, L6ndon is weird at present. In daytime there is not much difference, except for the presence of soldiers everywhere and recruiis marching though the city,/ but at night it is. weird. A city which is normally as bright' as day is now in darkness. All high lights are forbidden; trains and buses travel with drawn blinds; arc lamps are out, and. a few which are alight are painted black with a small space at the bottom for light near the Wa...

--? REALTH NOTES.I: First, live as much as H eto possible out of doorsr a Centuryr never letting a day pass without spending at least three or four hours in the open air., Second, keep all the powers of mind and body occupied in congenial work. The muscles should be developed and the mind kept active. Third, avoid excesses of all kinds, whether of food, drink, or of whatever nature they may be. Be moderate in all things. .Fourth, never despair. Be cheerful at all times. Never give way to anger. Never let the trials of one day pass over to the next. The period from 50 to 75 should not be passed in idleness or abandonment of all work. Here is where a great many men fail. They resign all care of interest in worldly affairs, and rest of body and mind begins. They throw up their business and retire to private iife, which in too many cases proves to be a suicidal policy. During the next period-the period .iom 75 to ioo years, while the powers ,f life are at their lowest ebb-one ::annot be...

Fishing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
Fishing Notes. During the past week fishermen have been more successful than of recenit; there being big catches of schnapper and 'couta. Cray-fishing is not so active recently. The anniversary of the Methodist ·Sunday -school will be held to morrow, the-preacher being Rev. J. M'Bride, of Geelong. There: will be special singing bythe scholars, and which is usually very attrac tive. On Monday evening there is a concert, when hthe children will render a number of bright musical items and recitations. There was, perhaps, no place where the destruction of the raider Emden· was received with greater satisfaction than in Queenscliff. Everyone rejoiced, although ac knowledging the clever work of the Emden. It is evident that Australian ports have escaped great danger, possibly Queenscliff" forts amongst the rest, as it is pretty clear she had shaped her course for these waters.

IN THE FACE OF MISFORTUNE. TROUBLES ONLY MAKE SOME PEOPLE LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
IN THE FACE OF MISFORTUNE. TROUBLES ONLY MAKE SOME PEOPLE LAUGH. While. some people are depressed by the smallest troubles, and almost hopelessly crushed by great ones, others see only the brightest side of everything, are ready to believe un der the severest misfortune that, af ter all, an even . greater calamity might have happened to them, and are able to get actual enjoyment out of the contemplation of the little troubles and catastrophes of daily life. It is all a matter of disposi tion. A costermonger was pushing his barrow of fruit along Cheapside when a motor-'bus caught the barrow and upset the whole of the fruit into the roadway. The coster took off his cap scratched his head, and, as he saw his property rolling in all directions beneath the wheels of the crowded vehicles, simply remarked, with a grin : "Well, there ain't no blessed word for it !" A man who was walking along the bank of a canal accidently stumbled and fell in. Some persons who saw the affair from a little ...
PATTER ARTISTS STILL AT CROSS PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
PATTER ARTISTS STILL AT CROSS PURPOSES. Where are you going to spend your holiday this summer ? No holiday for me. I'm saving all my money for a machine. Sewing or killing ? Neither. I'm going to buy a dicta graph. What is a dictagraph ? A dictagraph is a wonderful instru ment. With such an instrument, no matter where you are, you can hear what your wife says about you be hind your back. Oh, it's an instrument of torture? It's a great invention. With a dic tagraph you can find out' just who your friends are. All you have to do is to go and visit the people you know,stick it under the carpet or be hind th'e piano, and when you go home you can sit in .your parlour, and hear everything they say about you. But if YOU did that pretty soon you wouldn't have any friends. Not at all. You don't need to let them know that you know what they think of you. But what plea'sure is there in be ing a dictagrapher? I don't see any fun in going to a party and then coming home and listening to your sel...
THE DAIRY. WEALTH IN A GOOD HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
THE DAIRY. WEALTH IN A GOOD HERD. In securing a dairy herd too few people realise how easy it is to ac cumulate wealth by building up a herd that represents the highest pos sible quality in the cows. A dairy herd may become merely, the means of affording a living, if indeed not a hard, drudging life, or it may be a veritable savings bank, accumula ting compound interest. Only ten years ago the University of Missouri purchased four registered Holstein cows and a bull for £94. At the present time the descendants from this purchase number 35 head, some of which could not be purchas ed for £200 and the entire lot is valued at over £2,000. In addition to this increased value, bulls have been sold for breeding purposes that leaves a substantial margin to the credit of the sales account after al lowing for the occasional purchase of a new bull for use in the herd. One thousand dollars a year is what this original investment of £94 returned' on increasin'g value alone, to say nothing of the...
GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
1. RAIS OF COI The ,more wit one has tlle ore orb$ - g:inality one finds among men. It is little troubles that wear the heart out. It is easier to throw a bomb shell a mile than a feather-even • ,with artillery, Honest good humour is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is e no rial companionship equal to that S where the jokes are rather small and the laughter abundant While many womens abuse the leve that is laiished upon them, the ave rage woman lives upon a kind.look, a tender toae and. an occasional caress, - arid.. repays. these with the devotion ci a lifetime, , Enthusiasm is the glow of the soul; enthusiasm is the lever by which men are raised above the average level and enterprise, and become capable of goodness and benevolence which, but for it, would be quite impossible. Aimn at perfection in everything, • hough in most things it is unattain. able; for those who aim at it, and per severe, will come much nearer to it than those Whose Iaziness and despon. dency ma...

WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
WHAT THE RtOGER- THOUGHT, Admiral De Horsey is an excellent racontesr, and from out of his fund of afii:cdote, does not hesitate to bring forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine with the Governor at Kingston, but forget to learn the password for the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his bayonet to the charge. "A friend," came the reply oat of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de co:ntersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Ire know nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his bayonet perilously -near the offieer. "You no can pass h'yar." "3ut I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke into a b...
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
A MAt W.au wA BANGED. It was the custom in the good oli days, especiaUy in Ireland, to hang oondemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged in this way. At the end of half an hoer his body was given to his friends, who put him in a cofn they had brougkt with them, and gaooped el with him on a cart. But, bedre they were out of sight of the gallows authorities, the corpse lathe exuberance of his joy sat up in the coffin and shouted "Hooroo !" A "pall," terrified lest ,his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come alter them, hit the hanged man playfually on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. ·The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice was ap pealed to for a warrant for the cul prit's ar...
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
DQCTOR AND PATIENT. The late Dr. Cruveilhier, of Paris, was a man of unbounded liberality. One day he heard that a poor young woman, whose husband was a clerk in the W~ar Office, had been taken ser iously ill. He went to see her, at tended her for a motith, and finally brought her round. ... At the end of this period he per ceived that the husband wished to ask him for his account, and for time to pay it in. He did not like to hurt the young man's feelings, and, noticing an Algerian carpet in the room, worth aDOut fifteen francs, he exclaimed : '"What a lovely piece of carpet you have got there !" "Ah! doctor," said the husband, "If you think you would like to have it-" "I should indeed, very much like~ to have it. Look here, we will make a bargain. You owe me two hundred francs for my visits. Your carpet is worth three hundred. Here are a hundred francs, and I'll take it with me." And he left, glad to have done the poor people a kindness without wounding their pride. • 'n• m...,wa ...
