ROMANCES OF RELIEF FUNDS. "Kind Hearts Are More Than Coronets." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

ROMANCES OF RELIEF FUND®i "Kind Hearts Are More Than Coronets." I There are none so generous as tlxe poor. This truism was again stri kingly illustrated by some of the contributions which, have been sent to the Queen's "Work for Women" -Fund. An old lady of ninety-five travelled to London to deliver personally, to Lady Roxburghe the gift of a Jubi lee sovereign, carefully wrapped up in tissue paper. Another donor was a blind old woman, who was led up by a Boy Scout to present the sav i ings of many years. A soldier's ! fiancee sent her engagement-ring with the following explanation: "The boy who gave me this ring made me promise before he joined his regi j meat that if anything happened to him I was to give it away. He will never come back. With a wrench I send it to you, as his gift to the Queen's Fund." A poor woman sent a thick strand of glossy, bright brown hair to be sold for the good of the cause. From Jamaica Plain an American girl sent a gold coin which she had worn since sh...

MACHINE THAT TAKES OFF FAT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

MACHINE THAT TAKES OFF FAT. A machine that will do one's exer cising ior him without exertion on his part has been tried, out at a Chicago according to the "Scientific American." Its primary purpose is to reduce weight without requiring ex ercise or dieting, and repeated experi ments hav.e demonstrated its success. About all the patient has to do is to remove his, or rather her—since most c-i the patients are women—outer gar ments, and put on something closeiy resembling the old-fasmoned Mocher Hubbard. Then she is strapped into the ap ^aiatus. An operator touches a switch, an electric motor starts buz zing, and the machine does the rest, the machine has a platform which can be raised or lowered to- any alti aiue desired. About half-way up it has two large belts of wooden rollers, each roller being 2ft. long and about 2in. from its neighbor. The patient stands on the platform, which is raised or lowered so that the rollers will enclose him about the hips, stom ach, or shoulders as d...

SKIPTON. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

SKIPTON. Shearing is getting into full swing in this district, and the clip is expected to average tkat of previous years, and in some instances the clip is stated to be exceptionally heavy. Carranballac and Banougil wool passed through Skipton during the week, en route for Linton. On Wednesday of last week " Egg Day " was celebrated at the local State school, whe 3l£ dozen were collected. The figures are considerably, less than last year, when the total was 97 dozen. The eggs have been forwarded to the Ballarat Hospital. At the last meeting of the local Ang lers' Club a letter was received from the Victorian Piscatorial Council, informing the club that the question, " Is English Perch Harmful to Victorian Water ?" is to be brought before the council at an early date. After consideration mem | bers were of the opinion that the perch is harmful, but as it is a good sporting fish it should not be restricted or abol ished. The chairman said that he did not think that the perch was as h...

THE INCENTIVE. j CHARMING STORY OF A WOMAN'S WIT—AND THE MAKING OF A MAN. By S. T. Brentley. "Well?" demanded Nat. "I am on bail," I answered him. He lugged me into liis study. "Has Rhode accepted you?" lie asked bluntly. "Sh£ has," I said, "reserved judg ment." "You don't seem much perturbed," he observed. "It's better than a blunt non pos sumus," I replied.

BELGIUM BEFORE DEVASTATION [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

BELGIUM BEFORE DEVASTATION As a land of sunshine Belgium has long been a favorite resort of holi day-seekers, especially Americans. Mr. Reginald Wright Kauffman, whose book "In a Moment of Time" was recently published, writes of Bel gium in the time of peace: — "There are some children born with the muscles of their brows so formed that they cannot frown. Bel gium was one of these children. Here and there comes a bit of. gently rolling country; behind Namur lies the forest of Ardennes, whence Sir Walter's 'Wild Boar' took his sobri quet; but the billows of that rolling country were as smiles passing over the earth's face, and wherever the Ardennes threatened a grim wildness dead-and-gone Belgians had planted a pretty 16th century chateau to laugh the threat away. "All the rest of the land is flat; it is a chessboard on which the squares were green fields or immaculate vil lages, and the dividing lines hedges or canals or long straight white roads bordered by twin rows of Lombardy po...

Music and Painting. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

Music and Painting. Signor Caruso, the famous tenor, declares that the greatest compli ment he ever received during his pro fessional career came from some working-men of his native country, Italy. He had rented a new house, and had the workmen, in to decorate part of it. Each morning In one of the rooms he used to practise the so;igs in the operas in which he had to appear. After a few days the fore man of the decorators came up to him and said: "I suppose you want to get that wing finished as soon as possible?" "Certainly I do!" said Caruso. "Well, then, you will have to stop practising here," said the foreman, "for as soon as you Btart singing every day all the men lay down their tools and won't do a stroke 6f work while they are listening to you- They don't touch their work until you've finished!" The best efforts to make a home attractive sometimes fail. Recently a district visitor in the East End of London asked the wife of a notorious drinker why she did not keep her husband ...

Slow Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

Slow Progress. A regiment of regulars was making a long, dusty march across the -roll ing prairie land of Montana. It was a hot, blistering day, and the men, longing for water and rest, were im patient to reach the next town. A rancher rode past. "Say, friend," called out one of the men, "how far is it to the next town?" "Oh, a matter of two miles or so, I reckon," called back the ran her Another hour dragged on, and-~an other rancher was encountered. "How far to the next town?" the men asked him eagerly. "Oh, a good two miles." A weary half-hour longer of march ing, and then 3, third rancher: "Hey, how far's the next town?" "Not far," was the encouraging an swer. "Only about two miles." "Well," sighed the optimistic ser geant, "thank goodness, we're holdin' our own. anyhow!" Rational farming involves an intelli gent rotation of crops. Investigation has proved the high manurial value of clover, lucerne and other legumes. The lesson is: grow a leguminous crop in the rotation, as all ...

ALARM THROUGH A COUGH. EXCITING NIGHT FIGHT BY PATROL. British Headquarters France, [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

ALARM THROUGH A COUGH. EXCITING NIGHT FIGHT BY PATROL^ British. Headauarters France, The work of strengthening our po sitions is constantly going on at all points. New trenches are dug, fresh entanglements are erected at import ant points, and new works are con structed. Night patrolling between the trenches is also an important feature. One little party had an exciting ad venture a few nights ago. A party of five men, which included a former Ox ford professor, set out shortly before midnight to explore a certain hedge across a field close to a German trench. The hedge, it was thought, might conceal machine guns or defen sive works. Making their way with the utmost caution across the rough ground separating the two trenches, expecting their presence to be reveal ed at any moment by a flare from the enemy's trench, the little band at last reached the hedge. Suddenly a cough was heard from the other side, and the five immediate ly flung themselves flat and waited. An other cough came ...

SOCIETY NURSES. AMATEURS WORRY ARMY. "UNMITIGATED NUISANCES." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

SOCIETY NURSES. AMATEURS WORRY ARMY. "UNMITIGATED NUISANCES." "Keep these ladies, these amateur nurses, away from the wounded offi cers in the hospitals; let them minis ter to the wounded soldiers—if they will." Thus the wise Duchess d'Aosta, King Victor Emmanuel's cousin, pre scribed exactly the remedy for a cer tain condition which existed briefly in the local military hospital (says the New York "World"). Aristocratic women, leaders in so ciety, famous actresses and prima donnas; other women whose esca pades, whose crimes, even, have made them more or less famous, are beg ging that they be permitted to nurse the wounded—though they admittedly know nothing about nursing. So many applications have been received from these amateurs that the Red Cross leaaers have forbidden' them to nurse officers. As the Duchess d'Aosta foresaw, the vast majority of them do not wish to nurse "common" soldiers. The "ladies" of the Duchess would be wel come in th© military hospital as auxiliary nurses...

BATHING AN ARMY RUSSIA'S UP-TO-DATE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

{ BATHING AN ARMY j RUSSIA'S UP-TO-DATE SYSTEM. The very latest in the way of com fort for the man on the firing line comes not from Germany or France, as we might expect) but from darkest Russia, in the shape of a railway train that can not only give a bath daily to 3000 soldiers, but provides further for serving refreshments, for dressing, and for the disinfection of clothing. Those who are familiar with the Russian bath, and who remember that the adjective in the name is real ly descriptive and not simply orna mental, will realise'that baths in Rus sia require something more than a sufficient supply of water. The 3000 baths offered by the bath-train are real Russian vapor baths—the kind that costs at least 75 cents each in well-regulated American establish ments. Says a contributor to the "Scientific American"— _ ] The bath is a great institution in Russia. People are accustomed to it, i and even the smallest cottage has its | little "banja," or steam-bath house, where they get t...

THE GREAT OFFENSIVE HOW THE ALLIES PREPARED. LETTER FROM FRENCH OFFICER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

[ THE GREAT OFFENSIVE HOW THE ALLIES PREPARED. LETTER FROM FRENCH OFFICER. Writing before the beginning of the great offensive now being prose cuted with success by the Allies, a French officer tells of some of the surprises that were being prepared for the enemy. Since the month of August the metallurgical factories of France have been manufacturing cannon, while newly-constructed ones are making shells. In tbe spring, when military activity was resumed, the Germans were obliged to economise in muni tions. Recent engagements, where we have gained some ground, were char acterised by a preparation of artillery whose precision in firing was obtain ed by a perfectly organised system of observation. But an unexpected surprise will ter rify our enemies. After a great many tests a new explosive will be em ployed, and, it is officially stated, will increase by tenfold the power of our artillery. The tests are lield in the greatest secrecy, in one of our artillery parks in the centre of Fra...

Linton Presbyterian Church. ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

Linton Presbyterian Church. e ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS. The 54th anniversary of the Linton Presbyterian Church was celebrated on Sunday last by special morning and evening services, conducted by the Rev. James Legge, of Clunes. Though the weather, instead of typifying spring, as it should have done, suggested a return to winter conditions, tbe congregations were large. Tbe preacher was listened to with marked attention. In the morn ing he gave a short but memorable ad dress to the boys and girls, and his ser mon was an eloquent and impassioned ■discourse on the value and meaning of the Christian Gospel. Speaking of the dogma of original sin, he mentioned that Donan Doyle, the novelist, at the time that the Empress of Ireland sank in the St. Lawrence river, pointed to the heroism displayed on board the ill-fated ship, and used it to attack the dogma, asserting that it showed how brightly human nature shone out when the op portunity came. The preacher held that Conan Doyle's reasoning...

ORIGIN OF THE RED CROSS Its Use Adopted by All Nations. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 October 1915

ORIGIN OF THE RED CROSS Its Use Adopted by All Nations. At the time there were many who called him a "humanitarian, crank," but no name is more highly revered and honored to-day than that of Henri Dunant, the originator of the Red Cross movement, and the real author of the Geneva Convention of 1863, when delegates from ^all the most important countries |in the world met together and decided oil the universal recognition, of the Red Cross in time of war. Those who would fully understand the horrors of war and the fearful sufferings of the soldiers on the bat tlefield before the inauguration of the Red Cross, should read Dunant's book "A Souvenir of Solferino," where, on June 24, 1859, the Aus trians were beaten by the allied French and Piedmontese, 40,000 kill ed and wounded being left on the field. Dunant, in his book, describes the horrors of the carnage and how thousands of maimed soldiers died a lingering death because there were no doctors, ambulances, hospitals, or ordinary med...
