GERMANY'S NEXT MOVE. THE MENACE OF THE ZEPPELIN [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 21 October 1914

GERMANY'S NEXT MOVE. THE MENACE OF THE ZEPPELIN By Henry Stearin "Stead's Review." It is generally assumed that the much-vaunted German rigid dirigible airships, the creation of Count^Zep pelin, are not going to play so great a part as was anticipated in this , war. We learn that six at least of these monsters have been brought down and destroyed, and that the Germans can only have seven or eight of them left. Would: that we could believe it! Dare we, though, shut our eyes to the possibilities? First of all, are these airships which have been destroyed really Zeppelins? It is, we fear, highly im probable. The great rigid airship is not a scout but the battleship of the sky. She would not be risked merely to spy out the land. That is the duty of aeroplanes and of the serviceable airships of the Parseval type. All German airships are classed as Zep pelins by the non-expert, whether they be of the rigid or non-rigid type, and it is not only possible, but in deed probable, that the airc...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the salce of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived ! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts.

I FOR THE SOLDIERS. WHAT IS WANTED AT THE - FRONT. EVERYBODY CAN HELP IN RED t CROSS WORK. ( While the brave sons of Australia are responding so nobly to the Em pire's- call in the fight for Freedom and Justice, the women of our land have the opportunity to do good ser vice in ministering to the comforts of Australia's and the Empire's Army. We are sending our sons to fight. Let them take their place in the battle front under the best possible condi tions. Troops leave Australia with everything they need, but as. the war goes on they will need further sup plies of warm clothing—remember they have to face a bitter winter in Europe—and it is here that everyone left behind can join in and help. The Australian Red Cross Society, with Lady Helen Munro-Ferguson at the head, has taken up this work, and the co-operation of all is invited. Anything of value is accepted—all sorts of clothing, foods, comforts, books, tobacco. There is hardly a business which does not supply something useful. O...

ROTATION IN U.S.A. Iu the spring a young-man's, fancy , Lightly turns to thoughts of love; In the summertime he woos her, His own darling, turtle-dove. In" the fall he seeks a lawyer To undo the knotty twist, And the winter, finds him planning For another springtime tryst. The party frock she wore Was nothing much before And a little less than half of that behind; For a bit of filmy lace And some powder for her face Was all the dance equipment she could find. It isn't always the clock .with the loudest tick that keeps the best time.

PICTURE SHOW PRIZES. MORE NOVELTIES AT THE • "MOVIES." The merits of the performers ar-3 not only the means relied on to at tract people to vaudeville or picture shows in America. The same may be said to some extent in Australia, where in many towns beauty contests arid baby competitions have been put on to swell the box-office receipts. The latest from 'Frisco is certain to be followed, and. while the novelty lasts we may expect some entertain ment. Writing to a friend in this district a young Australian now in San Jrancisco states— I was at a particularly funny show at the Empress Theatre the other night, and must tell you about it. It was vaudeville, like most shows here are, but the big hit of the eveniny was "The Country Store."
