INFAMOUS TREATMENT. MARTYRDOM OF FRENCH PRI SONERS. The seriously wounded and ci vilian prisoners repatriated from Germany bring e very-day reports, to the truthfulness of which tihey testify on oath, regarding hor rible, facts which surpass all de scription, there being no martyr dom which has not been inven ted and applied to the torture of , prisoners in Germany. One of these repatriated pri soners, n. man called Ohrdruf, saw men fastened to the stake for periods- of from two to five hours ;wi$i ,';their toes barely touching the ground , and their heads* thrown sharply back. At Meres burg, for refusing to work on military duties, a soldier of the 139th Infantry Regiment was hung by the wrists to a beam for two hours.

THE WIZARD LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 29 August 1916

THE WIZARD LIGHT. Attention is directed to an ad vertisement notifying that Mr. F. H. Dowell, of the Central Stores, has been appointed local agent for the Wizard Light. This light has bssn installed bv Mr. Dowell himself. It is without doubt a fine illuminanc, incomparably befc terthan acetylene or air gas. An other virtue it possesses is its cheapness. It is claimed for it that the running cost of the light is not half that of acetylene, which is a. great desideratum in these strenuous times with the cost of living soaring upward and income taxes following the sam3 course. A gentleman in town has re ceived a letter from Dr. Oiivey, formerly cf Braidwood, in which ihe says, i.nc.ir alia, that he has joined tho military forces in Eng land, and was in camp at the date of writing.

RAINFALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 29 August 1916

RAINFALL. Another splendid fall of rain occurred on Sunday night, which registered 90 points. Unlike much of that which fell in the winter, this will do a lot of good. The weather is now much warmer, so that this rain will give the pas tures and crops a good start. Both these are looking remark ably well for this time of the year. The crops are particular-* ly forward, and with anything like §- favorable spring we should have record yields. Perhaps the farmers of ' this district have nev er done so well as during the past couple of years. The high prices and big demand for chaff have increased bank balances considerably. These prices are likely to continue this season, at any rate. Yesterday the wea ther was still threatening. A dairyman has been fined £40 at Gisborne for selling watered milk. The teaching of domestic science at the Technical College is to be extended, and also made a fea ture at the University. The following application has been lodged at the local Land Office : — ...

Of course, nobody lakes him RP.rinii«IvTOT)p.n 'Via talks in this way^and his resort to such tactics only serves to em phasise his poverty of legitimate weapons with which to attack the Government. Everybody knows, as a matter of fact, that the L'W.W. is as strongly, if not more strongly, opposed to the Labor party as it is to thp Liberal par ty. Indeed, it is believed in some quarters that the LW.W. is now doing work on behalf of the Liberals,.
