HONEY AS MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 27 August 1915

HONEY AS MEDICINE. But fcwpo ople are cognisant of tlio benefits to bo derived from a moderate use of honey. Saccharine matter, as a rule, is apt to ail'ect the system injuri ously; but if taken in the form of honey it at once becomes a valuable food and medicine. Mingled as it is Tilth fruit ! juices, derived from flowers, highly J charged "with inedicina lproperties, honev, if taken as a food, becomes a powerfifl si)eciiic. Poul air, improper ventilation, and sudden change of tem perature and exposure of throat ana lungs to sudden chill, are the sources o£ no end of throat and bronchial troubleSj A free, regular, and constant use of honey is probably the best medicine for throat troubles known, and it sregular use is largely corerctive.

MILITARY AEROPLANES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 27 August 1915

MILITARY AEROPLANES. The lifo of aeroplane motors in use is, according -to a French authority, not over 350 hours, and to assure this much of them they must be' taken apart, '? cleaned and remounted every 50 hours. Since the cost of one of the motors, wheu ordered iti lots of 100, is about £600 each, the expense is a heavy one. ' One factory near Paris is dolivsring i 150 new aeroplane motors a month, li; I is conservatively assumed that from { five to ten of tho allies' aeroplanes are j put out of action each day, being dis abled by either hostile fire or wear, and I tear through constant use. However, j the military aviation schools are con- j stantly training many hundreds of I young aviators, while factories are j working day and night to steadily ir. e-reaso the number of 'aeroplanes in j action.

IMPRESSIONS OF WAR. INDIFFERENCE TO DEATH. MEN WHO DO NOT CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 27 August 1915

IMPRESSIONS OF WAE. INDIFFEBENCE TO DEATH. 2£EN WH®. DO NOT CARE. Strangely different accounts afo given by the men of their own feeling in warfare. Some apeak of the fighting with feelings of horror that they can not disguise, somo regard it as just queer experience, and somo speak eager ly about it as a splendid adventure. The slaughter made some men sick, and' others it made angry, and some simply didn't caro. Privato C. E. Lee, of Masterton, is cno of thoso who didn't care. That terrible 8th of May, when most of tho men got their wounds, is vividly enough impressed on his mind, but he speaks of it without cxcitemont. "It's very dangerous, but I didn't mind it much-honestly, I didn't. Going over on tho ship was worse than the fight ing. In the fight you know what you've got to do and you do it, and that's" about all thero is to it. "The New Zealanders fought all right out there. There were a few that wero a bit weak in the heart at first, but afterwards when they got over this, t...

ARRIVAL AT AUCKLAND. SCENES AT THE STATION. CHEERS AND SILENCE. "Well, I hope those people will cheer to-day, if thejr never cheer again in their lives.'' "Do you? I hope thoy don't; it Trill be too sad for cheering." This scrap of conversation, overheard in the crowd which waited at the Auck land railway station for the coming of ithe ihospital train, may perhaps ,be taken as an indication of the feelings of thoso who witnessed the arrival and welcoming back to Auckland of heroes from the Dardanelles. The people cheered thoso men who were ab!o to hobblo to the motor-cars provided for them, but when the sick men on the stretchers wero carried past, it was too sad. Tho cheering broke off suddenly, and in tho absoluto silence which fol lowed, women sobbed openly, and men's faces hardened in the effort of self-control. At a quarter-past two there was a denso crowd round tho station. ITats wero waved and handkerchiefs fluttered, and as each carriage passed with the faces of soldiers at ...

The noise is just like a hurricane and a continual explosion. What with the guns and riiles it is au inferno; nobody knows how any human boing could exist in such a place. "On a rise there is a small wood, and the allies' guns arc spitting forth death to anybody in there. Trees and earth arc going up high in the air, and the Germans are still sending their men 011, no matter if it cost them thousands of casualties.
