Y.M.C.A.'s Battle-Eve Show. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917
Y.M.C.A.'s Battle-Eve Show. Throughout the forward areas m all | the battle zones-the Y.M.C.A. hut is. described by the soldiers as "the light | house." In these shelters proceeds a round of entertainment designed to cheer and comfort the troops. Re cently an association representative, who is an expert conjuror, visited the lines in France and entertained the Australians. This is what he writes: "It is a wonderful experience to be up near the front on a bad winter's night, and entertain men who are en joying a few days' respite from the trenches, and have all crowded in out of the cold and mud and wet to a warm and well-lighted Y.M.C.A. hut. Outside the ceaseless thudding of the merciless guns, the howl of the wind, and the beating of the rain on the roof, all combined, have occasionally | been so excessive that-1 have been compelled to give up my efforts at ' "patter" and do what conjur,ors call 1a 'dumb show,' relying, that is to say, on gesticulation and facial expression I i fo...

The wisdom.of centering these funds under one .bend; is shown in the bilance sheet of the Y.M.O.A.' of last year, ended' 31st December. Out ojf-n totBl of £120,000 received the cost of administration was only /"2500. This is purely b record of economy, and such men are not living on . the game. During the last Federal elections there! was never so much money, enerpy, and paper thrown' about by Fusion: Even our State railway sheds were used for lai^ge whole-sided adv...
"CORNELIA'S JEWELS." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917
"CORNELIA'S JEWELS." Everyone knows the tale of tlie no ble Roman matron Cornelia, who lived two centuries before the Chris tian era. A wealthy lady of the city came to visit her and attempted to dazzle her by the cost and beauty of the Jewels she wore. But Cornelia, stepping into an alcove and drawing a curtain aside, said with a smile, "Here are my jewels." It was her two little boys asleep. Here is a story of one of those "jewels," grown to man's estate, and placed in a posi tion of highest trust in Rome: - The first ruler of a great empire who legislated to settle ex-soldiers on i the land was Gracchus, who was a 1 kind of Lloyd George of ancient Ronie, says a writer in the "Daily , Chronicle." The patrician land owner^'complained that it was hard . to gi /e up' estates, many of which had |'been purchased by them or received | as the dowry of their wives. But j Gracchus said that this was not so i hard as that men who had fought for their country should not have the 'means of su...

KAISER'S SENSE OF FITNESS! [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917
KAISER'S SENSE OF FITNESS! Neither Julius Caesar nor Napoleon was in the habit of j>roclaiming vic tory and then asking the mediation of a third party to bring the vanquish ed to terms. It would have been too near the burlesque for either of those great men. But the Emperor Wilhelm was never strong in his sense of the fitness of things, sinco he is capable at once of proclaiming himself victor and suing for peace. The German Michael uses the pen as much as he used the sword; he attacks Truth with the same ferocity as he attacked I Belgium.

I did so, and before I had finished talcing the 'contents of the first bottle I passed a stone which was twice the size of pea. Needless to say that when urinating the pain was excru ciating, and my appetite was so poor that I wondered how a human being could exist oil so small a quantity of food. I have the stone at home and . would gladly show it to any person interested. I am glad to put these I facte before you for the benefit of I others who may suffer as I did. I have never had a return of the trouble since, and enjoy the bast of health." From Mr. George Rose, Sout...

HUNTING THE MICE. Ingenious Traps. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917
HUNTING THE MICE. Ingenious Traps. The Hamley Bridge correspondent of an Adelaide newspaper -writes: - At llr. J. G. Traeger's chaff mill an ingenious device is being used to de stroy the mice while the liay is being unloaded from the waggons. Empty chaff-bags are placed on the floor of the mill, and held open by a square of iron, partly covered-with hay, and "races" are made by means of boards. When the hay is nearly all off the waggons, the hunt begins (conducted by the employes) and the little rodents are driven down the races into the bags, after which the tops of the bags are tied up, and the pests are drown ed. By this means about 8,000 mice were disposed of in one "haul." "Sir, your daughter has promised to marry me." "Well, don't come to me for sym pathy; you might have known some thing would happen to you hanging around here five nights a week."

BANK OF ENGLAND A PRIVATE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917
BANK OF ENGLAND A PRIVATE COMPANY. Tile Bank of England, now exceed ingly busy with the War Loan, is not, as most people tliinli, a Government institution. It is a private company, but reaps a good profit by acting as the nation's banker. The remunera tion paid to the Bank o£ England for the management of the National Debt was fixed in 1906.as a yearly sum at the rate of £325 per million pounds of such debt up to five hundred mil lion; and at the rate of £100 for every million founds above this amount. On this basis, assuming a total war loan of £2,500,000, the Bank's remunera tion will .work out at about £250,000 annually, to say Jiothing of the in come they receive for managing the old National Debt, which, on the out break of the present war, was some thing like £650,000,000. Before any of the money that is now pouring into the Bank of Eng land can be spent, a certain procedure "has to be. followed.
