Beautify your Outbuildings, CLIMBERS. A class of plant that is greatly ta demand, and deservedly so, are climb btb; for the covering of dead walla, hiding unsightly buildings, ornament ing verandahs, arbors, etc., they are Invaluable. They can bo got to suit all tastes with regard to the colour Df the flowers, ana to suit all posi tions with regard to their hardiness. For the covering of a dead wall of dther large or small extent, nothing can be prettier than the climbing lig (Ficus repans), it being a splendid substitute for the English ivies in the warmer districts of the State. But it must be kept nicely trimmed, or it soon loses its true character, and - as sumes a coarser and broader leaf, with a much stronger habit of growth. So much is this the case that it < is very hard for tho novice to believe it is the name plant when seen under the different " habit. ■ Another Bplendid variety .'of plantfl, equally suitable for covering a dead' wall," arc the .

PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. WITH SUPPLEMENT. The Oisborne Gazette is an Advertising Medium of the ,Oisborne, Melton, Bulla, Momsey, <£• Bacchus Marsh Shire Councils FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1914 A TURKISH JEHAD The report published in the Ber lin newspapers that the Kaiser 'has telegraphed to the Crown Prince, stating that the Sheik-ul-islam. has proclaimed a holy war for the whole Islamic woild, may be taken cum yrano salts, as many other reports from the Prussian caipital. The ques tion, however, is a serious one, for, as tiie Sultan, as Oaliph, possesses nominal supremacy over the whole of the Mohammedan world, a gene ral rising g£ Mohammedans in Asia and Africa would seriously em barrass the Empire at the present juncture. This, no doubt, explains the ostentatious friendship of the Kaiser for the Turk of late years; but those who have studied 'the ques tion will realise that there is little cause to dread that blundering Ger man diplomacy Js likely to bring about such a fanati...

THE SENSE OF BEAUTY. Those Who See and Feel the Lovellness That Lies Around Th[?]rn. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

THE SENSE OF BEA<JTT. I'hose Who Soo and Feel (ha LoTnllneii That Lies Around Thiim. It is perhaps a 'commonplace to say chat "while the perception of beauty in i&-many* outward and visible forms in spires the poet's song and the ' artist's pencil, it is the source also of much that is noblest in character. Every act of •elf-sacrifice — the hope that looks hea-ven^Yanl, the love that casts out feStty the sympathy that leads to the self-contecrafion of men like Gordon and Darmen, like Howard and Living stone—points to the Supreme Beauty whence these noble man, and many others-, like -them, gained their stead fastness of purpose and serenity of spirit^ 'We cannot dissociate the high est virtue from beauty, because the • goodness that gives a divine purpose to life makeu life harmonious, suggesting to us the harmony which, as Shaks r>eare says, ■ 'is in immortal bouIs."

AN INTERESTING POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

AN INTERESTING POINT. There was an interestiug discusaion at the last meeting of the Melton Shire. Council on Cr McPherson's should revert to meetings alternately at Melfcon,' Toolern Vale, and Diggers' Rest. This arrangement had been worked from early times to suit thi? con venience of of the councillors, as the township from which the shire is named is on the extreme border, thereby necessitating long journeys by fully half the councillors to attend the meetings. About six years ago a resolution was carried to have all the meetings held in the Shire Hall at Melton. The shire secretary ■ roduced an opinion from the council's solicitors to the effeot that meetings held away from the shire offices are not strictly legal, and, acting on this, the presi dent ruled the motion out of order. ' t does not appear, howovor, that the argument that the practice of al ternating the meetings is illegal, was very conclusive. The Bulla shire is in a similar -pasition fci Melton, and there the meet...

THE GERMANS AND THE ALLIES [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

THE GERMANS AND THE ALLIES The severe winter which has set in in Nirthern France has evidently prevented any large movements by the contending armies. The advantage, so far, Is with the Allies, who have success fully checked the German advance,' aM._thus... defe&teJ.^th^ir,s^h_om^ taof The Germans, whp appear to have the advantage in artillery, are, it is re ported, sending more big guns (eighty) from Essen, to the north ern frontier. If this is true (and we doubt it, for, if it were true, it would be kept secret), it is evi dent that they have not abandoned the hope of wearing down the resist ance of the Allies. The hard life in the trenches, and the lack of pro per sanitary accommodation, especi ally on the German side, is appa rently having its effect, for disease is beginning to take its toll amongst the soldiers. A serious outbreak of typhoid fever, it is reported, has oc curred among the Germans in the Lille district. The town has been evacuated, and 5000 patients have...

THE EASTERN SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

THE EAST* aS SIDE. The adTance of the Russians continues, though cheeked at stages by the furious German attacks. The time gained fry the Allies has given, Russia time to faring up an enormous force, which is prac tically divided into two great armies, directed against Germany, one ad vancing on the north, and the other on the south. The smashing up of the Austriana has enabled the Rus sians to mate (progress in the south, thus avoiding the great German for that point. The German advance on Warsaw was started with a view of weakening the Russian attack on the south, but though the fighting is very heavy, the Germans do not ap pear to make any progress. During the Germans' last effort to pierce the Russian line, northward of Kutno, seventy miles west of Warsaw, a German cavalry division came under the crossfire of Russian Infantry, whioh was entrenched with a strong support of machine guns. The Gar mans abandoned 3000 dead and bounded. The vanguard of their advance retired on the mai...
