SMOKE GUNS BAFFLE U-BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 24 May 1918

S S OKE OGU1S BAFFLE U-BOATS. / The "smole-gun" is chemically fired that is, the the smoke emitted from it is chemical process smoke, the kind that is stifling and blinding. It is of' dense black, is heavy,.and hangs low over the water. Unlike the smoke generated by soft coal, it is lasting and forms a thick, impenetrable wall. To. ne the expression of one naval tman, "you would have to chop your way through it with an axe,", . At the 'base of the smoke gun is a. great copper vat, with two large tanks attached. Each of these tanks holds approximately 100 gallons - of chemicals. In another compartment o-' the vessel is a reserve supply of 1,000 gallons of acid. By a purely chemical, these acids are released into the vat from the. pilot house, or the bridge, and im mediately upon mixing generates the. smoke that vomits forth, making a most effective screen for the merchant man, as well pa blinding those on board the U-boat, and causing this craft to loose her bearings temporar ily.

THE RANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 24 May 1918

THE RANGER. It's a pity they can't find a man that suits the lot. To try and find a man like that the Council finds it's rot. The Ranger has to clear the road from sunset till morn ; But if he gets some people's stock the chances are he's roared.   Some councillor's sure to hit at him before the Council table ; But Kookaburra shakes them up, and thank God he's able There's one thing that some people think about the Ranger now, That he must be a funny chap, but does his work somehow. There's only one thing they must do to suit the Ranger there, That's just to keep their stock inside, not on the roads so bare ; On open land or private roads to him it's just the same, Because from either he'll take their stock, and him they cannot blame To save a lot of bother, both for owner and for stock, That's put the stock inside a fence, and on the gate a lock. — Laughing Jack.

TO THE "MUD LARK." [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 24 May 1918

TO THE "MUD LARK." Where, oh where is Jim's motor bike gone, Where, oh where can it be ? We've watched in the mud, for the last six weeks, And the devil a sign can we see. What has become of its rattle and toot, As it ambles along to the pub ; Alas Jim has stowed away the brute, While he soaks himself in the tub.         For the Kinglake mud sticks fast to Jim's shirt ; It firmly adheres to his skin, And he rubs hard with a bit of skirt To get it out, but it rubs it in. Jim vowed he'd ride some day to the moon When the Roads Board had finished the job, He made a mistake, and started too soon, And splashed mud into his gob. So the poor old bike, just the same must stop, Stowed safely away in the shed, While Jim works on and sighs for its pop, And thinks till he gets a bad head. He thinks aloud, ant the motley crowd, Who dig up the trees for Gray, Wish to heaven that Jim was allowed To knock off and rest for the day. The old "Black S...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 24 May 1918

TO THE EDITOR OF TUE ADVERTISER. Sir,-With your kind permission, Mir Editor, I would like to express my opinion ont the qu.sltion of unmarried ministers. I entirely agree with " Ohurch-Goer," and feel indignant that ministers of religion should tie attacked because they choose to stay unmarried. 1 am old-faltsioned enough to hold that the chief work of a minister is to deal with religious things. He is to be separated from the world, so I have been taught, and thits is wchy his work differs from all other proffessiona. iHe becomes the shepherd of hisia flock. lHow, I ask, ca n a minister, who has a teifo anti family, devote his energies to spiritual things 7 The married ministers I Lappetn to ktnow, lhnve nmy deep sym. pathy. They linhave become eutangled in houstlhold worries, and I fancy thatt there must be a continual scraping withl them to make both ends meet. flow ont earth, AMr Editor, they managed to do it, on their meagre salaries, would puzzle a Solomon.

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 24 May 1918

CORRESPONDENCE. Without endorsing the opinions of our   correspondents, we shall be glad to insert   communications bearing upon topics of public interest, which may be intelligently expressed and free from personalities, on condition of receiving the writer's real     name, not necessarily for publication, but       as a guarantee of good faith. UNMARRIED MINISTERS.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Dear Sir, — Mr Rowe hit the nail right on the head when he said at the Methodist social in Whittlesea the other night that all ministers should be married. It is well known that the two most important matters before the Commonwealth today are the war and population. So I would go further than Mr Rowe and say that every eligible minister should either get straight away into matrimony or into khaki. And I say the same to every eligible man, either marry or enlist, or perhaps better sti...

HASH OR CORRESPONDENTS REVIEWED. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 24 May 1918

HASH OR CORRESPONDENTS REVIEWED. There is always something brewing, On this little blob of earth ; There is always something doing, Causing agony or mirth. Can you tell me where that nag is That we often used to meet ? Was it stolen by the swaggies Who were camped in Bible Street ? For a cripple 'twas a wonder, When it started out to roam ; But its hoofs did beat like thunder When the stockwhip drove it home. Where Is "Anti-Humbug" fluting With his grim sarcastic pen ? Did he go to do some shooting When the call was made for men ? And since Joseph wrote that letter Re the passing of a Mac, Will it from the Council's fetter Even give himself the sack ? Now "Kookaburra's" always here   With silly drivelling verse ; His top is shook I really fear — For poetry's a curse. He is always joking, poking Into someone else's pie ; He should give his brains a soaking Ere his spirit starts to fly. And "Mernda's" thoughts are on a scheme For railway motor cars ; But when he wrote upo...

DIET AND HEALTHY AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 31 May 1918

DIET AND HEALTHY AGE. ( Great as are the evils in excess in "drink" there are, perhaps, as many In eoseaive and unsuitable sating. ?And these latter are more common becuse they are less obvious and evrient. Most people recognise the symptoms of over-drinking, but the ill-elffects of habitual over-eating are more insidious and more vague, and may be hidden for years, unknown to the patient himself. Sir Henry Thompson, a few years ago, came to the conclusion that a proportion amounting to at least one half of the diseases which embitters the mid dile and letter part of life among the middle and upper classes is due to avoidable errors in diet. And even this is not the worst of its eflects, for as well as making life wearisome and painful, It actually shortens its duration. For' perfect healthy and full nour ishment of the body a sufficiency of a well-halanced diet is that so-called vegetarian one which includes milk. butter, eggs and cheese or whether it is the ordinary ration which c...

THE DEEPEST MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 31 May 1918

THE DEEPEST MINE. I.M, (Birkenhead) writes: "I see !n the "Popular Science Sittings" a report that the Morro Velho gold mine in Brazil, is the deepest in the world, 5,'0 feet. I have always thought that the Jupitor and Cind erella gold mines, Tranvali, South Africa, were the deepest. In fact I have been down the Catlin shaft in Jupitur, which, if I remember right ly, is 4,200 in the vertical, and .,000 odd feet further down the incline, making it more than 7,000 feet, this being considered the deepest. minai on the Rand. That is four years ago.

A back cloth, representing a camp at the front with a sandbag shelter in the foreground, painted by Miss Davies, provided a most effective setting. for the efforts of the boys and girls who were attired as soldiers and nurses.

RED CROSS APPEAL "TIE DRIVE." A MONEY MAKINO SCHEME. Experience has shown those inter ested in the collection of funds for patriotic purposes that novelty in the methods adopted are necessary if good results are to be assured. With this knowledge the Red Cross Appeal Committee readily adopted the "drive scheme," particulars of which were brought from America by Mr. Hugh J. WYard, of J. C. Williamson Ltd. Mr, Ward has reported that in America the "drive" has been used with won derful success in the collection of money for the various funds. Millions of dollars have been gathered in the States by this means, and it continues to do good. It was introduced last month in Sydney for the Red Cross appeal in New South Wales and already many thousands have been collected. The object of the "drive" is to in vite the co-operation of every house hold in the work of collecting for the Rfed Cross. This is obtained by sell ing badges or small posters for 58 each.

Germany's fight impresses us all that we have been too slow. We have opened our eyes with awe and amaze. meat at the great bid she has made for supremacy. Half a century ago the German people entertained aspirations to lead the world in manufactures; they resolutely and systematically pre pared plans to succeed.
