Won the Case. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
Won the Case. The writer was told a good story a short time ago by a well-known law yer in regard to another equally well known lawyer. "Jackson's mind," said he, "is so well stored with amusing tales and experiences that nearly every time he rises to argue a point at issue be tween himself and opposing counsel he makes use of them, to the vast amuse ment of everybody. "Once he and I were together in a case, and he got in a strong answer to a point a lawyer on the other side had made. " 'The gentlemen of the jury,' he said, 'must not place too much faith in what my friend on the other side says. If they knew him as well as I do, they would see as well as I do that when his mouth is open his brain ceases to work. I can only compare him to a little steamboat that used to run on the River Clyde. It had a five inch boiler and a seven-inch whistle. The effect of this was that when the whistle blew the steamboat stopped.'"
Keeping an Eye on Them. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
Keeping an Eye on Them. The directors of a bank had • en gaged the services of a watchman, who came well recommended but did not seem over-experienced. The chairman, therefore, sent for him to post him up a bit, and began:— "James, this is your first job of this kind, isn't it?" "Yes, sir," "Your duty must be to exercise vigi lance." "Yes, sir." "Be careful how strangers approach you." "I will, sir." "No stranger must be allowed to enter the bank at night under any pretext whatever." "No, sir." "And our manager—he is a good man, honest, reliable and trustworthy —but it will be your duty to keep your eye on him." "But it will be hard to watch two men and the bank at the same time." "Two men—how?" "Why, sir, it was only yesterday that the manager called me in for a talk, and he said you were one of the best men in Melbourne, but it would be just as wellNto keep both eyes on you, and let the directors know if you hung around after hours." A certain merchant died, leaving to his only so...
Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
A very fine long distance motor cycle ride has been established in America by E. G. Baker, holder of motor cycle Transcontinental record from San Fran cisco to New York. On this occasion Baker tackled the rough coastal trip from Canada to Mexico, and succeeded in ne gotiating the 1655^ miles in 3 day's 9 hours 15 minutes. This gives a daily average of 475 tnilds—a remarkable achievement when the mountainous nature of the country is taken into, con sideration. That petrol has played an important part in the European war is reflected in the shipments in tlii's" motor fuel from America, For the year ending June 30th, 1915, France^imported 32,718,000 gallons, as against 3,494,000 in 1913, and 19,608,000 in f914. England pur chased 6,000,000: gallojns in 1913 ; 25, 800,000 in, 1914. and, 34,634,000 for the year ending last June. Italy nearly trebled her petrol imports, securing in 1915 9,160.000 gallojis. ^England's command of the seas in this direction alone hast befeil' of ,.tremeridou...
[?]d. Cree Entertainers. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
| Bii. Gres Entertainers. Ad Cree and his talented company ap peared at the Parish Hall, Linton, ou Monday night. The house was well filled, and no doubt would have been crowded but for the cold weather and the fact that several local events were close at hand. Ad. Cree is an old favorite in Linton, and received a royal welcome. His Scotch impersonations as usual brought down the house, and he showed that his power to amuse is at its zenith. His character sketches of the old lady audthe centenarian were masterpieces of humor. With Miss Jennie Cree also he showed to advantage, as did also the lady, who has histrionic and vocal talents of no mean order. Miss Dolly Stewart charmed the audience with her serio comic songs at the piano, and in a duet with Mr R. A. Bartleman gave great pleasure. Mr Bartleman possesses a ringing baritone voic?, which he uses with energy and skill. His patriotic songs were given with great fire and spirit, and in his duets with Miss Cree and Miss Stewart he ...
HORSES AT THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
HORSES AT THE FRONT. One of the most efficient depart ments of; our war service is the Royal Veterinary Corps. A constant supply of fresh horses is essential to effi ciency in heavy artillery, and mem bers of the remount department are kept busily occupied everywhere on the war front. A small bonus is allowed for enemy horses brought in, so that there is plenty of excitement for the men who collect wounded and other horses for transport to the base. It is interesting to know that horses stand operations very well, and that some remarkable and speedy recov eries are made; but it would appear from the experience of the present war that the saw "As strong as a horse" should not long survive. The vitality of the mule is far superior. It seems to be generally agreed that the ability of this animal to endure fatigue and its recuperative powers are wonderful.
HARMONIOUS WORKING OF ALL ORGANS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
HARMONIOUS WORKING O^ ALL ORGANS. Health is the result of the harmoni ous working of all the organs of the . body. Each organ has to do some work by itself, for itself, and then render some service to all the oth ers; and if the mind is sick, all in the house feel the effect. As a conse quence of this, there should be no misuse of any part of us, either eyes, ha>nds, or stomach. To keep a healthy home every person in . it should do his part, every organ in everybody should be fairly treated. Each should study the other and give help when able, and cheerful ness should be as pure as the atmos-\ phere; not made by laughter over the weaknesses and failings of others, but born of joy in the well-doing of all.
Is the War Coing Against Us? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
At the present moment there is a tendency, to which all of us are prone, to take a gloomy, not to say fearful, view of the progress of the war. The experts warned us that the Allies must win first by negative results, then by positive victories, but negative" results never satisfy, even when they are being accomplished, and so in the German successes in the Balkans and in the re fusal of the Dardanelles to open up to our knocking, the man in the street is inclined to read defeat for the Allies. But when a writer of clear vision takes the whole facts—as Dr. Fitchettdoes in the November issue of " Life "—a,nd shows us that the Allies' position is growing stronger, whilst that of the Germans and their forced friends is not nearly as strong as it looks on paper, our confidence is renewed. Dr Fitchett's account of the fighting of the month, is, as usual, vivid and picturesque, whilst his summing up of the moral factors in what he terms " a spiritual balance sheet of the war,'" is at once...

PAY IN THE U.S.A. NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
PAY IN THE U.S.A. NAVY. ' The United States navy—the only one of the world's great navies not on active service at present—enjoys a high scale of pay. An American ad miral draws £3,000 a year, as com pared with £1,990 allotted to the same rank in Great Britain and £900 in Germany. All other grades of officers are equally well paid in proportion. Even on the lower deck it is possible to draw pay amounting to £30 a month, and every sailor after ten years' service is entitled to a sub stantial pension for life. There is no need to become an American citizen i before enlisting. According to a re-1 turn issued three years ago the United j States navy then contained 636 Ger mans, 435 Irishmen, 236 Englishmen, 232 Chinese, and 214 Japanese, besides 2,8.76 foreigners who had taken na turalisation papers.

SCARSDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
A few days ago Private Don Oam pigli, who won the Distinguished Con duct Medal at the landing of the troops at Gallipoli, visited the Scarsdale State school, where he for some years was a pupil and addressed the scholars, giving them an interesting and detailed accouut of the trip and warfare. He donated two prizes for the best essay on the ad dress. That the children were keenly interested was evidenced by the excellence of the work sent in. The first prize was woo by Master Alex. Nimon, and after a keen competition with several others, Master Russell Knight was awarded the second prize. The outbreak oE meningitis in the home of Owen Brosuan, at Scarsdale, which necessitated the removal of Bros nan to the Ballarat Hospital, has led to an awkward predicament for the rest of the family. Their home, which adjoins the police station, has been quarantined, together with the police station and the inmates. The station is in charge of Const. W. A. Youdan, formerly of Bal larat.

CHAPTER XXVIII. Describes a Chase. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
CHAPTER XXVIII. Describes a Chase. The driver, with the southerner's > disregard of the feelings of animals, | lashed his weedy horse into a gallop, as up-hill and down-hill we sped, back to the town. Entering the city gate, the man scattered the dogs and foot-passen gers by his warning yells in Arabic, until at last we were down upon the long semi-circular quay, our eager eyes looking over the blue sun-lit sea. No sign could we discern of the motor-boat, but Fournier, with his hand uplifted, cried: "See! Look at that white steam yacht at the end of the Mole—the long, low-built one. That belongs to the •Count. Perhaps he has already boarded her!" I looked in the direction my com panion indicated, and $here saw ly ing anchored about halt a mile from the shore a small white-painted yacht built so low that her decks were al most awash, with two rakish-looking funnels, and a light mast at either I end with a wireless telegraph sus pended between them. The French | tri-color was flyin...

The Place of Dragons CHAPTER XXVII. Discloses a Death-Trap [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915
By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXVII. Discloses a Death-Trap Tiie Villa Beni Hassan, a great red and white house of Moorish architec ture, with three large domes, and many minarets, and long-arched win dows of stained glass, I found stand ing high up, facing the azure sea, amid a wronderful tropical garden full of tall, feathery palms, dark olean ders, fiery pointsettias, and a perfect tangle of aloes, roses, giant geran iums and other brilliant flowers. A high white wall hid it from the dusty highway, its position being be tween the road and the sea, with spacious, well-kept grounds sipping away down to the golden beach. Truly it was a princely residence, one of the finest in the picturesque sub urbs of Algiers. That afternoon be neath the blazing African sun, shi ning like burnished copper, all was still in the fiery heat which, after the coolness of autumn in England, seemed overpo...
