London and Berlin. A WAR-TIME CONTRAST. By a Neutral Visitor to Both Cities. London—Berlin. Tho two capitals of Empire, placed Bide by side, afford much material for fruitful, compara tive analysis. London crouches in darkness. Tho habits and customs of hor people are Impeded, disturbed. The streets re echo with the tramp of soldiery. Tho plinth of the Nelson Column has be come a grand-stand for recruiting ser geants coercing, cajoling men and boys to enlist. Meetings protesting against tho Inefficiency of Britain's leaders are held In Hyde Park and olsowhere. These apparent signs of disintegra tion merely indicate tliat tlie British people are bestirring themselves. For never has London seemed more truly imperial, asserted more positively the right of Empire. Empiro means weld ing together in bonds of union peoples of divergent racial and national tra ditions, peoples of different customs and opinions.

THE FOLLY OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

THE FOLLY OK WAR. According to a wounded officer, a day before the great attack a curious thing happened. A board was hoisted In the German trenches bearing the Inscription— "The English are Fools." No one wasted a bullet on such poor abuse. The board went down and re appeared with the addition— "Tho French are Fools." It was Ignored by the British. Then the board came up again with a third Uno— "We are Fools." A lively interest was now awakened in the board. On its last appearance It bore the inscription— "Why not all go homo?" —Manchester "Guardian." Now that the Minister for Defence has set the fasiiion, we may be sure that every untoward happening In na tional defence affairs will be found to have a common cause. The sol diers at Liverpool (N.S.W.) havo been spoiled, petted, and forgiven for re peated riotous acts, and their conduct naturally grew in lawlessness and ex tent with each condoning. But when tho last, worst and the wildest out break came, somebody started to whis per...

The Man on the Land. Farm-Yard Manure. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

idttf W atw wvf ww ww wv ww ww w*a' vrtffc'tt fcV *WW WV WW W%5f W fe The Man on the Land. If ieroBromroroimmmmmroS Farm-Yard Manure. It is a notorious fact that many farmers tmder-estimate the value of farm-yard manure, with the result that much valuable fertilizing material goes to waste every year on the farms of this State. It is no uncommon sight to sec great heaps of manure, the ac cumulation of many years, lying about, without any attempt made to put same to profitable use. In fact, in some cases it is looked upon as a nuisance, the farmer being content with getting it away from the proximity of his milking sheds and other places. In cases where far mers do make an endeavor to utilise the farm-yard manure, their efforts are to a large extent neutra lised by faulty methods of storage. They arc, for the most part, ig norant of the fundamental bacterial changcs which manure undergoes subsequent to being voided by the animal. It is in extremely rare cases that any attempt is made...

BUILDING COMMERCIAL RAMPARTS. Australian Claims to Markets Season's Surplus Crop. Efforts to link the Allies.^ in a trade and customs union have gained sufficient power tr.">'ar rest the attention of the British Government. Mr Walter R&nci man, President of the Board of Trade, has stated in the House of Commons that a series of trnde treaties between the Allies is con templated, with the object of strik ing an economic blow at Germany to end the war, and of raising a world-wide rampart against her possible future efforts to restore militarism through commercial di plomacy. Australia should be strongly represented at the trade congress now being convened to discuss trade relations.

So the future with us sharing ( Lives their glory o'er again. Not the sound of harp or viol, Not the dulcimer's sweet strain, Fit to hymn their hour of trial, Men who laughed at death and pain; Brazen cymbals, drums, long rolling. Trumpets clamant tar-tar-as; Through it all a great boll tolling Like a god-voice from afar. Deep, majestic, proud and solemn, Sonorous, triumphant tone. This the poet's "glory" column For the men wo call "our own." Ah! not mine the genius power Worthily to sing their praise, Lovo alone, the woman's dower, Aids me hymn those deathless days.

Special Train for Pullet. CHICKEN WORTH £25,000 TO PHILADELPHIA ENTHUSIASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

Special Train for Pullet. CHICKEN WORTH £25,000 TO PHILADELPHIA ENTHUSIASTS.

Lady Eglantine, said by Philadel phia enthusiasts to be the most valu able chicken alive, not even excepting Bome of tho Broadway flock who de corate themselves with diamonds, is going to New York to attend the Em pire Poultry Association's Show at the Grand Central Palace. She may not bo worth .£25,000, as reported, but she's "some chicken;" her record being 314 eggs in 365 days.

The Navy on Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

The Navy on Strike. By H. C. Brame (in tho "Fleet.") Arrayed in rags anil blind with sweat and grime, Shovolling away with eyes that seem on fire, Trying to coal the ship in record time, Dodging the knots and bags and strangling wire. Working in air that's thick with chok ing dust, Digging away with many a muttered curse, Blistering our hands because we know wo must, Wondering tho while if liell itself is worse. Hearing all through tho whistles' piercing shriek, And rattling winch or sergeant's acid voice; Oh, but to be on leave for just one week To banish thoughts of coaishlp, and rejoice. And then to read of strikes for higher wages, Or coming out in sympathy instead; They little think that not through all the ages Has Britain's peril ever been so dread. Yet we who watch and ward upon the ocean, Do wo insist upon an eight-hour day— Us living symbols of perpetual mo* i tion— Sh'd wo declare a strike for extra pay? Do we "down shovels" when some self styled leader Gets upon his hind...
