He Who Passed. BETWEEN THE TRENCHES. STORY OF XMAS MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 24 February 1916

He Who Passed. BETWEEN THE TRENCHES. STORY OF XMAS MORNING. It was Baid that we were to have no sort of a truce or fraternising with the Germans this Christmas Day (writes N'owell in the London "Sun day Times"). We were talking it over in the trench, and agreed thai we, at least, wouUl do all we could to wipe out the 'scum opposite Christmas Day or no Christmas Day. Then our padre strolled up, and said that he hoped that even if there were no friendly intercourse as happened last year we should at least be spared the necessity of killing each other. It was the association of Christmas Day and battle that upset him. He did not preach—there is no place for a pulpit in the trenthes; he simply gave us his views as a Christian, he said. His manner of putting it impressed us; and there must have been few of us who went to sleep, or who tried to go to sleep, without thinking over his words. As for myself, when I laid down towards morning I could not get his argument out of my head. Whether...

with which is incorporated the Boort Standard. Korong Vale Lance, and Quam batook Herald. InterostinR reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, Fclii nary 21. A Land Problem. After the war thousands of sol diers will want to settle on tlie land. Of these many will find that the pro duction of luxuries, in which they were engaged before the war, has ceased, or has been 'so reduced tint there is no opening for them. That is inevitable, for the stoppage of war expenditure means a period of re adjustment, of financial stringency, of stern economy on the part of thousands whose capital has been reduced by heavy taxation, dis turbance of trade, and so on. Of the soldiers many more will lind women in their old billets, able and anxious to hold them, and the men, having tasted a man's life in the trenches, will in thousands of in stances, turn from occupations which called neither the brain of the able nor the muscles ot the strong into play, but jus', yielded pittance in re...

THE DEVIL'S LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 24 February 1916

THE DEVIL'S LAMENT. The Devil sat by the Lake of Fire on a pile of sulphur kegs; His head was bowed upon his breast, his tail between his legs! A look of shame was on'his face, the sparks dripped from his eyes— He had sent his resignation to the throne up in the skies! •'I'm down and out," the Devil said— he said. It with a sob— "There aro others that outclass nie and I want to quit my job. lie!! isn't in it with the land that lies along tlie Rhine; I'm old and out of date, and therefore 1 resign; One Krupp munition maker, with his b'oody shot and shell.

I hate to leave the old home, the spot I love so well, Rut I feel that I'm not up to date in the art of running Hell."

A brow-beaten witness will some times delight the court by retaliating upon an over-zealous lawyer, who is doing the questioning. This happened in a north-east town—in the Kelly country. The witness was a farmer, and he was complaining that a neighbor had stolen somo of his ducks. "Do you know that these are your ducks?" asked the lawyer in a severe manner. "Oh, yes, 1 should know them any where," was the conlldent answer, and the farmer proceeded to mention the various points and marks by which the birds might be identitlcd. "But these ducks are no different from any other ducks," objected the lawyer. "1 have a good many in my yard at home just like them. What havo you to say to that?"
