MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 5 March 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Corroepondent.) The respected cleric known as "Fighting Larry" is back from "the fushin" in Now Zealand with renewed vigor and undiminished belligerence. He has a splendid opportunity for the combat in which his soul dclighlts in connection with the alleged 'camp of evil," that he says is located close to the Broadmeadows training camp. His assertions are denied by the police. whose version is supported by the Chief Secretary. But Professor Ben tone sticks to his guns-a back-down on his part would be an unheard of de parture, and would be a shock to the whole community. As is generally the case, there is somc'thing to be said for both versions. Tho evil referred to by the venerable apostle of the church nmilitant is rife and has done a con siderable amount of harm to the in discreet, of whom it is only to be expec ted there should be a certain percent age in a large body of young men. But it ha-s been so since the beginning of things, and is an evi...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 5 March 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST (By '' Rusticus.'') It seems just a bit farenial to have the boast of the Railway Commission ers that the dopartment is in a position to carry any amount of produce, and at the same time to read the losses sus tained by Gippaland producers through lack of trucks to move potatoes and onions that are perishing at the rall way stations. Thu Premier, anticipating as he does for this year a largely increased acre age of wheat, as well as a substantial average return, informed the railway commissioners a few days ago that enough rolling stock must be ready to carry a record yield. Sir Alexander Peacock pointed out that it would be a calamity, and the Government would be a laughing stock, if the advantages of a substantial crop srere nullified by tile failure of the authorities to carry the exportablo surplus to the seaboard. In reply, the chairman of Ctommis sioners, Mr Fitzpatrick, has furnished a memorandunii in which the Commiis sioners report that the largest wheat t...

WOUND IN THE BACK. HOW IT WAS SUSTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 5 March 1915

WOUND IN THE BACK. HOW IT WAS SUSTAINED. A few British soldiers have recently been invalided back from the fighting line. They are victims of the severe November weather. The overcoats of these men were plastered with mud. They had fought io trenches sodden with rain.. Their boots had sunk ankle deep in the mud; they had stood nearly <waist deep in water. Rheumatism had developed. They are but a few. Generally speaking, the health of our troops at the front is excellent, notwithstanding the cold. and the rain. For this much credit is due to the fine work of the Army Service Corps in the field. This orgiinisation is won derfully complete. Their convoys of motor lorries anr continuously at work between the railhead and the tronhees. Our troops in the trenches have abundance of food, tobacco, cigarettes, With such comforts, life is suportable. in the most trying corcumstances. As one man put it to me, 'This 'cre war's like a blooming picnic. Why in South Africa, we had to us...

HOW AND WHERE TO KEEP HONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 5 March 1915

HOW AND WHERE TO KEEP HONEY. Honey needs to be dry, warm and in the dark. Moisture injures either the colub or extracted kinds, by reason of honey's peculiar affinity for moisture.

THINGS THAT HAPPEN. STRANGE ASPECTS OF WAR [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 5 March 1915

THINGS THAT HAPPEN. STRANGE ASPECTS OF WAR An inspection of the account books of many old firms shows that during the Napoleonic wars the books were kept by women. All the mnle clerks were engaged at the war. In France the commercial work is now being almost wholly performed by women. In many cases ladies have volunteered to take charge of the counting houses of friends who are ot the war. It is said that they are doing their work re markably well.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 5 March 1915

TURF TOPICs. (By "Flemington.") We may congratulate ourselves that the stayer anioiig thoroughbreds can still find opportunities even in those days when the sprinter is so highly. prized. It would be a good thing if more money was devoted to the encourl agemtent of stamina, but in this re spect we should be thankful for small mercies. The craze for short flutters has in late years become so great that it is somewhat surprising that an at tempt has not been snide to reduce dis tances in our eiidurance tests. In Syd ney, the Metropolitan, once a two-miles event, has been reduced to twelve fur longs, and the saone thing has happened in colinetion with the Tattursalls Cup. Thanks to Carlita, who went out and set the pace, we saw a true race for the St. Leger on Saturday. There was never much doubt about the result; Mountais, Knight just bobbed along be hindi Carlita until it was time to make a move forwarl, and the moment he was called upon he silenced the filly.

MR. JONES'S COFFEE. PICTURE OF THE TRENCHES Cheerfulness under difficulties is the surest sign of a stout heart, and that Tommy and his officers have it is proved by many a story from the front. No better story of the kind has, however, been told than the following from the pemn of Mr Harold Ashton, in the Lon don "Daily Telegraph."
