MANICURED TOMMY. UP-TO-DATE MILITARY HOSPITAL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
MANICURED TOMMY. TTP-TO-DATE MILITARY HOSPITAL METHODS. "Did you get hust in the hands too?" a man asked an English soldier just out of the war hospital. "No," he said, and then breathing on the back of his fingers rubbed his nails upon the kahki sleeve of his other arm. "What's the matter with them, then " his questioner went on; "they look funny to me, somehow." The wounded man spread out his two hands palm down, with the fingers spread wide apart. His finger-nails glowed like pink opals. "There's nothing the matter with them," he said, "only they've been manicured. The nurse does it. 'Shock ing fingers,' she says, 'for a young man to go about with.' So she fetches a bowl of soapy water and a box of tools and this is what she done to them-not half bad, I-don't think. It's some pol ishing paste she put on that makes them so shiny. You can take it from me, it's the most wonderwul up-to-date hospital in the world. They don't half make a good job of you. It's worth getting a plug in t...
THE KAISER AND THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
THE KAISER AND THE NAVY. The Kaiser's allusions to Trafalgar make strange reading to-day. On Octo ber -30th, 25 years ago, he inspected as a British AdmiraL the British ships` at the Piraeus, and, in responding to the toast of his health on board the flag ship, said, "'Nelson's famous signal is no longer necessary. You all do your duty, and we, as a young naval station, go to England to learn something from the British Navy." On January 22nd, 1893, at a luncheon in honour of. the Duke of Edinburgh in Berlin, the Kai ser, having referred to Nelson and other British naval heroes, as "the guiding stars of German naval officers and crews," added "And should it ever happen that the British and Ger man navies have to fight side by side against a common foe, then the famous signal, 'England expects that every man will do his duty,' which England man will do' his duty," which Eng laud's greatest naval hero gave out before the Battle of Trafalgar, will find an echo in the patriotic heart of ...
HOSTAGE CITIES. M. MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
-HOSTAGE CITIES. M. MAETEBLINOK'S SUGGESTION. In the Paris "Figaro" Maurice Mae terlinck, the distinguished Belgian writer, makes the interesting sugges tion that, in view of the German army's v·andalism,. the principle of hostages should be extended from individuals to cities.. Here are his words: "To my certain personal knowledge the. Grand Place, the Hotel de Ville, and the cathedral of Brussels are min ed, and only a spark would be required to reduce these marvels-the work of centuries of patient labor and love to nameless, ruins. We have sacrificed all. without a murmnur, but this would surpass everything. What is to' be done, How can we stay their hand? They seem no longer to be amenable to reason, or to any of the sentiments which men hold in honor. They only seem sensible to blows. We shall soon have the power, and they must realise it, to strike them hard.'' "Why should not the Allies, from this day forward, while there is yet time, nominate certain hostage cities which wil...
THE TABLES TURNED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
THE TABLES TURNED. A day or two ago (writes a Paris correspondent), a section of a French infantry regiment which had been sent out to recorinoitre lost its way in the thick fog, and came plump-upon a com pany of the enemy, which took it pris oner. The German company, finding its movements hampered by the eyer thickening fog, formed a hollow square,, in the centre of which it placed the disarmed. Frenchmen. The Germans then stacked rifles: and waited for the fog to lift.- -They beguiled the tedium of the waiting by insulting their pris oners. This was too much for the chart ered wag of the French regiment, who was a Parisian -of Montemarte, and as sharp as they are made. He saw his opportunity. "Get their rifles, boys," he shouted. And with a concerted rush the prisoners broke the square and seiz od the stacked rifles. The Germay cap tain and a dozen of his men :who tried to resist fell before their own bayonets and the whole company surrendered to its prisoners of five minutes ago....

WARSHIP'S 1,000 SHELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
WARSHIP'S 1,000 SHELLS. A graphic description of the Trafal gar Day bombardment of the German position at Nieuport by the allied fleets was given to Reuter's special corres pondent at Dover. The vessels were in continuous action. for twelve hours, firing opening at six in the morning, when the squadron was some two miles off the shore. The: enemy's trenches were three miles inland, and the firing was inces sant; one British vessel alone fired a thousand lyddite and shrapnel shells. The firing was so rapid that sonic of the guns discharged fourteenprojec tiles a-minute. So terrible was the re sult of the squadron's fire that at the end of the day the whole coast for a distance of four miles from Nieuport to Westende, which at the beginning of. the action was strongly held by the enemy, has been completely evacuated and was a dense mass of black smoke and flame.
ENGLISHMAN'S PATHETIC MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
ENGLISHMAN'S PATHETIC MESSAGE. -"I am the only Englishman left in G.ompiegne. God bless. you, think of me; I am.alone," so concludes a letter which a resident in Ely has just" re ceived from her brother. The latter, who has lived for some years in Compiegue-the scene of a British victory during the retreat from Mons-states: ''They (the Germans) burnt my house up; they took all that was in it and wanted to take me and the wife. I ant in trouble; I cannot get a penny. I have no horses and can get nothing. There seems no prospect for mo but to die in-France.. . Tell Frank I wish f was. in England and could risk all things. I am left with just what I stand.in. If 1 had not opened the door they would have shot me .... I will keep on for three months more, and I don't know what will become of us. All the big gentlemen have gone and left -their houses." --~ • •
TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
TURF TOPICS. (By " Flemington.''") Recent sales of horses at what might be called full value should be cheering to breeders sending yearlings into the autumn sales. As previously remarked there would still seem to be money for a good article in horseflesh. Possibly. in times like the present, with some uncertainty ab.uit the future. owners may think twice before bidding high for yearlings which cannot, at best, show any return for the outlay for at least six months. The young ones are sold in March and cannot race in Victoria until October. In ordinary circunistaaces, buyers do not mind waiting that long in the' liope of being rewarded in the end, but in these days money is money, and there fore investments which are slow to mature, or may not mature at all. are scarcely in favor. Still the outlook for the breeder might be a great deal worse He cannot of course, expect the prices of prosperous years to be maintained this autumn, but there are indications that the yearling market thi...
CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
CLEARING BRACKEN. How to get rid of bracken fern is a question that a correspondent in an SAustralian paper replies to by saying: "Cutting the bracken is of little use. Cutting seems to be pruning them to promote their growth. The same with burning. The more they are burnt, the quicker and thicker they grow. We find. that bruisingis the effective system with- a hard roller made by the local blacksmith, encircled spirally with angle iron. The process is simply to keep passing this roller,. loaded to sufficient -weight, over the brackens, as often as they show new growth, and eventually this kills them right out." "Not* cutting them in the height of spring, and ly ly once in the year, another correspondent writes .'may be usless; but cut them 20 times a year if they need cutting-that often; in fact 'out them as often as you can get a hit at them, with the fern hook, so that the sun can shine fair on the grass to sweeten it, and the cattle will help to keep them down by treading them d...
HUMANE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
HUMANE GERMANS. A private of the Black Watch, now in hospital in Newcastle, says: On the Aisne I was lying for hours wounded. A German came along and bound up my wound under heavy fire. Whln he had made inc shipshape "he w:s .goi:ng to clear off, but a stray bul let caught him, and he fell dead beside me. After Sossons (says Corporal lious ton, of the Seaforths), I was lying on the field badly wounded. `Near by was a young fellow of the Northampton shire Regiment. Standing over him was a German infaniitryman holding a water bottle to his lips and trying to soothe him. The wounded man was delirious, and kept calling, "'Mother, are you there ? ' all the time. The German seemed to umiderstand,i for he passed his hand: gently over the feverish brow and ctaressed the poor lad as tenderly as any awoman might have done. Death came at last, and as the soul of the wounded man passed to its last acocunt I saw the German trying to hide his tears.
TREATMENT FOR BARBED WIRE CUTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
TREATMENT FOR BARBED WIRE CUTS. With so much barbed wire about, animals are sure to get cut now and again, and sometimes badly. -The drst thing to do is to put the aninial where it can be kept quiet. Then bathe the leg every half hour for the first twenty-four hours, with a lotion made of acetate of lead ½ oz., sulphate of zinc ; oz., tincture of arnica 2ozs, water one quart. After the first twenty four hours, bathe the wound three times a day. If it fills up higher than the skin, apply a little hirhlorate of mercury with a smooth piece of stick, but do not use more at a time than will lie on a six pence, as there is danger of the poison being absorbed. A good ointment for healing the wounds or general wounds on the stock may be made as follows :- l'o four ounces of either lard or vaseline, add one ounce of turpentine and one ounce of eucalyptus oil. These well mixed together niake a useful oil for wounds. All wounds should be well washed with soap and water, or water with a little ...

SUBMARINE'S MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
SUBMARINE'S :MISTAKE.. A foreign submarine which haU reached unobserved a point in non-ter:: ritorial waters between .Nakkehaved, on the northerni coast of the province "of Zealand and Kullen, in Sweden, dis charged two torpedoes at the Danish submarine :Havnimanden, which was run ning on the, surface at a speed of five knots. Neither torpedo struck her. The Havmanden was flying Danish colours at the time. A submarine, nationality unknown, probably the same vessel, was seen the same afternoon from the lighthouse at Nakkehaved. Next morning a torpedo was washed ashore near the lighthouse, and blew up. These facts have been brought to the notice of the belligerent Powers, with a request that greater care should be taken in the evolutions of their sub marine craft in the future.
FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
d FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. The recently introduced system of feeding dairy cows on a graduated scale according to the measure of their milk-yielding capabilities, originally devised in Denmark, has been receiv ing increasing attention on the part of progressive dairy farmers in this country. This method, which marks the latest development in the practice of cow feeding. has much to recom mend it, for it is rational in pirnciple, while easily carried out in practice. Its special merit consists in the fact that it promotes economy in feeding by r bringing the cost of the food ration into proper proportion with the return 1 obtained. It is based upon the prin 1 cip'e that the extent to which dairy cows are able to respond to a milk- 1 forcing diet by giving an enhanced yield, is dependent upon the degree of I development attained by their milk t producing powers; that is to say, the more fully a cow's inherent milking capacity is developed, the more can her milk secretion...

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIR WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIR WORK; Convincing testimony to the useful ness of the dog has- been supplied by 3 the campaign in Belgium, our brave Allies, employing large numbers for pulling machine guns and accompany ing sentries on nocturnal duties. Curi ously enough, this form of traction has only been adopted within the last year or two, and only fifteen months ago a Belgian' Service. paper wrote approv ingly of the experiment, pointing out that, in addition to being docile and competent, the animals had . become great favourites, among the soldiers. Among their advantages it was nien tioned that they niove silently, with out apparent effort, over the rough-est country, .and that-they are practically invisible a few hundred yards away. With striking prescience, the writer ob served that .the military Great Danes would be called uipon to play .a particu larly effective and glorious part, little realising -probably how soon his words would become true. According to cor respond...
ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. f ?rs. Henry Clews, the wife of- the well-known American banker, returned lately to New York. - She told, the ship-nows reporters that the stories of German atrocities in Belgium had not been exaggerated, and she herself had personally investigated a number, with the result that she found that half had not been told. It was a war, she said, ruthless beyond description, and the Germans, so far from trying to conceal their malpractices, openly defended them on the ground that the life of a Prussian soldier in the present. crisis was worth, more than that of any civilian,-iio matter what age or sex. Mrs. Clews said there is a chance of people misunderstanding the alleged friendliness to Americans shown by the. Germans. She said that she and others were openly insulted in the streets of Munich many-a time. "It is not because the Germans love us so that they foregather at the railway stations and cry 'Hoch! Hdoch!' when a trainload of American refugees p...
WHAT THE ENGLISH CENSOR PASSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 29 January 1915
WHAT THE ENGLISH CENSOR_ PASSED. The "Vorwarts," quotes a private letter received from a fireman of the Mainz, who was wounded in the naval battle"near Heligoland; and is now a ,prisoner of war at Chatham. The letter is brief and bears the stamp of-censor ship of the Assistant Provost Marshal of Thames and Medway Defences: It says, among other things: "The reception and the treatment here is:very good. The most vivid im agination is child's play in comparison with ~what,. we experienced on 'August 28th. ' My address: Prisoner of War (follo~y details). Hail and victory to the Gerinman arms! Yours --." * The "Vorwarts" observes:--- "The letter happily shows that the prisoners of war in English hands suffer no want. . The most remarkable thing, horw ever, is that the English censor has passed the words, 'Hail -and victory to the German arms.' The broadmindod ness reflects all honour on the British authorities, and is calculated to streng then our confidenco that, on the whole, the. pri...
