WAR NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

WAR NEWS. The French 'have made a slight advance over a long section of the line north and south of the Somme. ' General Sir Douglas Haig, in his report on Thursday, states: 'Last night, in conjunction with the French advance at Maurepas, we forwarded our line west and south-west of Guillemont. West of High Wood we captured 300 yards of hostile trench. North west of Bazentin we captured 100 yards of a trench.' ,,-. Herr von Wiegand, the Berlin correspondent of the 'World,' ca bles:— 'The French and British artillery on the Somme' is su perb. I take off my hat1 to it — and also to the Germans, who stand a* frightful battering and hammering day and night. The British and French have enormous quantities of artillery, and are firing 200,000 shells daily. There are 10,000 guns in 'action on -both sides. In guns, numbers, and fierceness the battle of the Som me is without parallel in his tory. The much-glorified charge of the Light Brigade and th» Bri tish valour at Inkerman pale by the s...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

ITEMS OF INTEREST. Separate dining-rooms are pro vided for women munitionwork ers in British factories where both sexes are employed. „ Inhabitants of the United King dom in normal times consume an average of about 30 gallons of beer each every year. Every man over twenty-one years of age in Italy is entitled to ;i vote, except those under 30 years of age who have neither performed military, service nor learned to read and write. A naval 13.15in. gun costs, with its mountings, telescopic sight, and other fittings, about £120,000. Each shot from one of these mon sters costs well over £100 for ammunition alone. Mrs. Ann Knight recently cele brated her 105th birthday at Dun dee. Her father and mother liv ed till they were over 90, and no near relative has died under 85.

THE AUSTRALIAN SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

THE AUSTRALIAN SOLDIER. Our soldiers have gained quite a reputation in London for the smartness of their appearance. After having had it impressed on one all one's life that clothes made in Australia have neither style nor quality, it is amusing to find that the, Australian uni forms arouse envy and admira tion, both for their excellent cut. and the splendid cloth from which they are made. The mate rial in the tunics is infinitely superior to ' that in the coats of the English Tommies, and it i6 said to be better even than the cloth used by the officers. That our men are conscious of this superiority is shown by the fact that they refuse to wear the English coats. At first, if their own tunics were lost or destroy ed,, men /were supplied with Tom mies ' coats, but they objected so strongly to wearing them that they were allowed the price of the coat — fifteen shillings or so — and they added the extra two pounds themselves to buy one of their own tunics. If you had ever seen the Tom...

HAD HIS EYE TO BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

HAD HIS EYE TO BUSINESS. Donald MacDonald, farmer, of Hoots Ava, N.B., had married a woman with a wooden leg. Need less to say, all Hoots Ava was amazed, for Donald Macdonald was a man 'with an eye to the main chance, and it had always been conjectured that when he did marry he would marry a good, strong woman, who- could work well in the fields ,draw the cart, if need be, and so forth. 'Losh, mon 1' whispered San dy, meeting Donald in the road one day. 'Why did ye do at? Was it lo'e ?' 'Lo'e be blethered 1' returned Donald. 'It's mebbe no' a very bonnie thing to marry a woman wi' a wooden leg ; but, mon, mon, she'll be awfu' handy at settin' time when I'm puttin' down ma cabbages an' taties.

TERRIBLE CONFLICT. AWFUL EFFECTS OF SHELLFIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

TERRIBLE CONFLICT. AWFUL EFFECTS OF SHELL FIRE.^ A vivid story of the fighting on the Somme is supplied by Herr von Wiegand, the Berlin correspondent of the 'World.' 'I am writing at the German 'headquarters, opposite ' Pozieres,' he says. 'There is a brief lull in the greatest, bloodiest, noisi est, most terrible human conflict known in history. The contend ing armies are like two frenzied bulls, with horns locked, strug gling back and forth, to an' ac companiment of the maddest roaring imaginable. It is a test of endurance that would pale the most lurid imagination of the most vivid writer of fiction. 'With characteristic foresight., the Germans have built another series of trenches behind the present front, which is nothing short of apowerful fortress, stre- tching for miles. It is the last word in trench construction, with bomb-proofs 40ft. deep, with sub terranean' connections. In places there are 300ft of barbed wire entanglements. 'Numerically, in both artillery and troops, t...

(, A CALAMITY. Murphy, who could neither read nor write, kept a potato store. For every bag of potatoes lie sold to his credit customers he kept tally by placing a potato in ccr-, tain places at the back of his shop. One day Maldney called in to settle his account, and in quired what the amount was. Mur phy went in to count up the num ber of bags, but reappeared in a short time looking very scared and put out, and told Maloney that he couldn't tell him— he'd have to trust to his honesty, as the pig got inland ate the ledger.

A FORMER PAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

A FORMER PAL. A London Territorial, home on leave, tells the following story : During a bayonet charge he went towards a German, who stumbled and fell. He prepared to strike, whereupon his opponent shouted, 'n,rwi-»'f rim if rinrtvir.-i ' T^Vl a Tor. ±J\Jll Ij \A\J A-ll, U OU1 gUi J-M.LKJ J-Wl rivorial then noticed that the speaker was a German who had worked side by side with him in the office of a large London firm, for about five years. 'For a mo ment I hesitated,' he says, 'but then it came to my mind that he would do his best against other friends of mine,' and so I saw to it that he did not get up again. It was a rotten experience at the, time, but I have not regretted it since.' '

ROLL OF HONOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

ROLL OF HONOR. In our last issue we briefly re ported the death at the front of Sergeant W. J3L Spicer,' son of Mr. ►Frank Spicer, of this town, and Private W. Huggett, son of Mr. S. H. Huggett, of Mongarlowe. Sergeant Spicer was one or the first to enlist from Braidwood. He took part in the famous Gal lipoli landing, and was in the thick of the fighting on the Pen insula till the end. He came through the ordeal, unscathed by either bullets or sickness, al though his comrade, LanceCorpo ral S. Dowell, went down to sick ness. Owing to his good work in the firing line Sergeant Spicer gained speedy promotion. He was only 27 years of age, and a na tive of Braidwood. He was a very popular young man, and the news of his death was received with many manifestations of re gret. The greatest sympathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs. Spicer in their sad bercavement.-iMrs. Spi cer was away on a holiday when' the news of her son's death am-. ved.

MAKING GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

MAKING GOLD. It is claimed by. bankers and scientists that Rudolf Melville Hunter has, for the past four teen years, been turning baser metals -into gold. Eudolf is a member of the American Insti tute of Electrical Engineers and also of the Societe Internation ale, Paris. There is nothing of the gsntle theorist about Rudolf. He -makes gold, and sells it in limited quantities at a cost of five to ten cents on the dollar. Ru du If ranks third to Thomas A. Edison on the list of patentees of the world, and is a person to be taken seriously. He recogni ses that it is within his power to 'destroy the gold standard. In an instant, he claims, he could reduce every gilt-edge security in the world to .a scrap of paper. He could also pauperise every lord of finance. He could rob the dollar and the sovereign of their almightjiness, and put an end to the universal scramble for gold. Mr. Hunter thinks that the manufacture of five billion dol lars' worth of his metal would upset ths gold standard....

SOFT DRINKS IN HOTELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

SOFT DRINKS IN HOTELS. The Attornsy-General laid on the table of the Assembly on Friday night a copy of an opin ion which he said had been given - in 1908 by Mr. Wade as Attorney General, on the question of the right of hoteni licensees to sell soft drinks on their premises af ter closing hours. The case arose, said Mr. * Hall, over some per sons bsing found on licensed pre ??? miscs drinking soda and bitters, and the magistrate held that this was no contravention of the Act. The 'matter was referred to the Crown Law authorities, and an opinion was given by Mr. Til let that it was not a contraven tion of tlie Act to sell soft drinks on the premises. This, he said, had been endorsed by Mr. Wade : 'I agree with this opinion.' 'I also agree with that opinion,' said Mr. Hall. During his visit to Braidwood last week* Mr. R. N. Bull, who formerly occupied the position of president of the Braidwood Band, was presented with a framed en largement of the Band by the members as a mark of their...

SHORT SERIAL STORY. The Usurper. (Continued). 'Good!' he said, catching her spirit. 'I think I will. Then slowly, with his penetrating gaze still upon her face :,'But later — shall I stoop to pretend when fresh people come upon the scene ? Shall I 'make believe' I have been your grandson always — that I never lived in another atmosphere, under another name ? Would an Erskine do that ?' 'To shield the family honor— I think an Erskine would.' Constance spoke in studiedly cold accents. 'Then I must live up to the name I have taken. You give me permission to play the part of pretender ?' 'Yes, Robin.' 'Your hand on it, grandmo ther.' She placed her ringed fingers in his outstretched palm. - 'A compact,' she whispered, her old eyes glowing with an almost sinister light. Anna shuddered, for it seemed to her simple soul as if Robin —young, pure, unspotted by the world — had male a compact with tTie devil, in the guise of her stately sister Constance, the mo ther of Mrs. McNab.

THE TRADES HALL AND THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 22 August 1916

THi: TKADES HALL AND THE GOVERNMENT. I- Signs arc not wanting that one I °f the chief grounds of attack 1 upon the Holinan Government at I ^ forthcoming election will be I J alleged domination by the | Jrades Hall and the Labor Lea §8Jip*. Both Mr. Wade and 'Mr. § fiwby are continually harping I . ?' on this particular string. As far as Mr. (Wade is concerned his po sition is perfectly intelligible, and therefore excusable. The Trades Hall has always been a veritable nightmare with (him and the capi talistic interests which he so sub serviently represents. Although a member of one of the most ex clusive unions, except perhaps the doctors'; in the Common wealth, he has never had much sympathy with the working man's union. Also, he has always held the most conservative - ideas on constitutionism. With Mr. Beeby the case is different. He was drag ged from comparative obscurity by the Trades Hall. For many years he was content to be one of the most pliant victims of the al leged autocra...
