WHEN WAR BEGAN. POSITION IN THE EMPIRE CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 October 1914

WHEN WAR BEGAN. POSITION IN THE EMPIRE ' CAPITAL. In a very full budget the special re presentative in London of the Sydney "Sun" gives an interesting narrative of events- and incidents in the Empire capital on the declaration of war. King George's Sagacity. From first to last the King never appeared until his signature had to be affixed to proclamations, or until his subjects begged a glimpse of hini cn the balcony at the Paiace. Until the full history of those last over wrought days are written, the people as a whole will never know how much they owe to the sagacity,' the steadi ness, and the energies of their Sove reign. Frail though he may sometimes loolc in physique, King George is as tough as the toughest hickory. For four days on end he could not have had more than an hour's fitful sleep. His Ministers motored across from Downing-street at all hours of the day and night. Three mornings in suc cession the Prime Minister "was clo seted with the King at 3 a.m. . Mr. Asquith, in ...

Colds on the Chest.—"My little son was a great sufferer- from bad colds on the chest," says Mr Gronow, Station St., Seymour, Yic. " At times he was so bad that lie would be just choking for breath, and nothing I tried for him seemed to give him relief. I was re commended to try Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, and in one night I noticed an improvement. Now I give it to him as soon as I see any signs of a cold, and he is soon alright again. I would not be without a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in my home." Sold by all storekeepers and chemists.*

HELPING THE EMPIRE. What to Grow for the Army. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 October 1914

HELPING THEi EMPIRE. What to Grow for the Army. The farmer can do more than look on while our brothers are fighting (writes A.G.S. in an* interesting arti- . cle). .There will he some products in ' ^ eager demand, and others slumped. As one who is not an expert in these matters, but more of an onlooker, I think it would be a fine thing if the military authorities, in conjunction:" "^ with some of the best commercial ex perts, were to announce to us what agricultural products, in their opin ion, will be badly wanted while the - conflict lasts. This is > . time of-year '• when we can in many ways adapt our - operations to suit the. comiug needs A Cry for Wool. To begin with, there will be a tre mendous call for wool.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 October 1914

LADIES' LETTER. The home-coming of a youthful bride and bridegroom was nearly rob bed of its charm by one of those trivial accidents xvhich seem almost tragic at the time and sound merely funny later on when one tells it to their friends. The pair, having elect ed to go to the'ir new abode on the return from the honeymoon arrived on the doorstep shortly before mid night. The.-, master of the house, doubtless overcome with the import ance of his new position as a house holder, drove the latchkey in the door with such grim determination that the wretched thing bent and re fused to do its duty. All attempts to turn it failing, the husband tried U •bend the refractory metal into shape between two coins by the dim arid ever-disappearing light of matches I which his wife struck at intervals. Just as he was nearing the end of his patience and the matches and the two were wondering which window would be the cheapest to replace, the bent end of the key obligingly yield ed to the pressure of ...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. 13e not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement b}' special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and 3'ou will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this j'ou find only in — SANDER'S EXTRACT.

KAISER AND KRUPP'S. SAID TO BE A PARTNER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 October 1914

KAISER AND KRUPP'S. SAID TO BE A PARTNER. With its collieries, its iron mines, and its steel factories, its workshops of Essen and Magdeburg, its naval dockyards of Kiel with their 5000 en gineers, 60,000 workmen, and the 250,000 persons who owe their live lihood to it, the firm of Krupp repre sents the most powerful and complete achievement of modern industry in the service of the genius of destruc tion. Instead of great banks—which, by the way, have saved it more than once from disaster—it boasts a sleep ing partner and protector whose im portance no one will dispute, since he is no other than the Emperor of Germany, his Majesty William II. How | does it happen that the head of the most powerful military nation of the world should at the same time be a shareholder in the largest gun fac tory? It happened in 1867. Bismarck, having defeated the Austrians at So dowa, thought of making war on France. For that he needed a formid able artillery, and Krupp only could supply it. Unfortuna...

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 October 1914

Toot Your Own Horn." A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or-tact, yet every time she lays an egg1 she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. . The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and tjvatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and jsqueaks; pigs squeal and robins smg and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.

THE PROPOSED QUARRY AT MOSQUITO CREEK. At last meeting of the Narracan Shire Council, reference to the pro posed municipal quarry was again made. Cr Branigan (president) said they wanted to use the metal at Mosquito Greek, and desired to get along with out delay. Cr Cantwell expressed himself as opposed to the idea of proceeding any further in the direction indicated. It was proposed to take the £450 re quired for the tram-rails out of reve nue. The total cost of the line was estimated at £750. They must con sider a comprehensive scheme, and the money required should be obtained by means of a loan. This could not be raised in a minute. Before com mitting themselves in any way, he would like to have the financial aspect of the proposed quarry explained. Cr McGregor concurred with Or Cantwell. They should go into the matter in an efficient manner. A lot of money would be required for getting the tram line constructed, ^ a siding put in, and elevators erected to put the metal into the ...

Cr Cantwell introduced as a deputation Messrs Tackaberry and Hillis, who spoke anent the condition of the Trafalgar Hill. The deputationists were informed that the matter would receive consideration. A motion was subsequently carried authorising works of the value of £40. Some discussion took place with regard to granting permission to fire across roads in the vicinity of the new Trafalgar Rifle Club range, which was subsequently agreed to. Cr Mahony strongly objected at first, saying that the Military Department should take the responsibility and not place it on the shoulders of the council. It was mainly due to the efforts of Cr McGregor that the required con sent was obtained. Cr McGregor (delegate) said that he pre sumed the feeling of the council was that the Main Roads Board was doing good work. He was assured that this was the ca...
