It is tlio de spatch auuoum-.lug the l!attle or 'Tra .algar and the deatli of Kelson. It Is one of the great thrilling message:) of the world, a message which meant, although perhaps not even Knglish statesmen realised it at the time, that command of the sea and that, inunun ty of our shores and the shores of our great colonies from fear of attack which goes Willi a supremo Navy. 1'he despatch is simple and unadorn ed. II was written by Nelson's sec ond in command, the noble Colling wood. "The evor-to-he-laniotltod leath," it runs, "of Vice-Adniiral laml Viscount Nelson, who, in tho ate conllict w:;h the enemy, fell In hi' hour of victory."

RURAL COURTSHP IN HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 March 1915

RURAL COURTSHP IN HOLLAND. The sons of Dutch fanner:-, have to labor as lung :md as hard as any hired man. No wonder, then, that to bo married and to have a farm of his own Ik not merely the son's comfort, lint "the chief end of man." Social gatherings among the rustic folk are Infrequent. 'l'he chief opportunity for courting Is in the church. It Is in teresting to watch the lads at service. The seats are so arranged that every one can look not only at the preacher, hut also at everyone else, except, of course, those who are directly he hind. So tin' young man settles com fortably into the family pew and lets his eyes run freely over the Hock un til they rest on one attractive lamb. It is not long befor(t the i;irl becomes aware of hi:; glances, and if they please her a gentle llirtalion begins then and there. Reasonably sure of a favorable re ception from the girl, the young man drives over to call 011 her. The most usual time is Saturday evening. When he reaches her homo she may l...

Rome idea of the fighting power of :i Dreadnoughi may lie gathered from the fact that tlie extreme range of it.'i guns is 'twenty-live miles, while they can ho very effective at a range of twelve miles. Tlioy are most deadly, however, at a range of between five or six milos. Tim llMn. gun of a Dreadnought is 50ft. long, and If set up on end would ho higher than many a country church towor. Tho cost of ouch gun la about £10,000, while -each' time it ia fired £100 vanishes Into the air. As a protection against tho-guns of tho enemy, a Dreadnought is covored with armor costing £120 per ton, and as something like '1800 tons arc used in covering tho vessel, this means an expenditure of closo upon £ GOO,000.
