A KAISER PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 4 May 1915
A KAISER PROPHECY. I)c Queiroz twenty three years ago put the Kniscr under his microscope, and studied his mental structure and peculiarities as n careful scientist might study the structure of an ant. With weird and half-prophetic insight this Poitiigtiese writer said:-"One day Eu:opo will walco to tlie ronr of clashing armies, only because in the soul of this great dilettante the burning desiie to 'know war.' to enjoy war, wns stronger than leason, counsel, or pity for his sub jects. William II will have not the slightest doubt as to the issue, fo besides several minor Sovereigns ho has fur his ally the supreme Sovereign of Heaven and Earth lighting among the German Landwehr, as in the days of old Minerva, bearing her spear, fought with tho B1 ck Phalanx Bgainst bar barians." But De Queiri v. sees clearly the pciils which beset the unfortunate Kaiser, He alone executes; to him alone the God of the HohenzollernB im parts transcendental inspiration. The Kaiser must thereforo prove h...

STRATHB0G1E. Almofit tlio entire di.iti'iot turned out Hi- Friday evening to do honour to our young men going to the frout. This is as it should be, as tlu departing soldiers deserve the highest praise for their loyalty to the Empire's cause, and I have no doubt that each of them will do their duty. The physique of tho men is all that could be desired, while their fami liarity with tho use of tho rillo will stand them in good ttead, and help to fit them for tho arduous work ahead. A good yarding of hhoe|> was of fered at Watts Tumbull^t Co's. sale last week, aud owing to tho minpric-js for store sheep improved considerably, but fat sheep, considering quality, sold in favour of buyers at moderate prices.

AU REVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 4 May 1915
AU REVOIR. &nbsp; Mr. T. A. Saxon, proprietor of the "Sentinel," received the hearty handshakes and well wishes of the residents of Violet Town, among whom he has labored for the past three or four years. At ' duty's call he decided that the Empire should have the benefit of his arm, and it is fairly safe to say that there are few more likely soldiers among all the volunteers at Broadmeadows. During Mr. Saxon's absence, Mr. Ford has undertaken to edit the "Sentinel," the mechanical department re- maining under the charge of Mr. Bert Saxon. &nbsp;
