THE ROLL OF HONOR. Lance-Corporal Thos. Ritchie The news that Lance-Corporal Thos. Ritchie had been killecLJu action at the Dardanelles was received with great regret through out the district. Lance-Coporal llitchie -was the eldest son of Mr Jas. Ritchie, senr., an old and highly respected resident of Mysia, and was 33 years of age ; spending his 33rd birthday in Kgypt.. Great sympathy is expressed for the family, as it had been understood that he was wounded only, and only last, week was it definitely known that he had been killed in action on 5th May.

SUNDAY READING. The Kaiser Condemned. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
SUNDAY READING. (Conducted l>y Knv. Eldridgo, Boort.) The Kaiser Condemned* , It ig nti now tiling to hoar that tho Kaiser has again boon justifying hin self before God and his own conseienc Again and again ho lias said he did in ". will tho war; hilt the facts arc against such a statement, as ho alone of all the crowned heads of Europe, was the one that could have prevented it. The secret preparations that were being made years before the war, together with a subtle system of espoinage which was allowed and approved by him, settle the question of the Kaiser's irresponsibility once and for all. That there was a shameless secret society at work, whose head was the German Emperor, no rational person will now deny. The war was launched at a time when the Kaiser and his war-lords thought they would catch the Allies napping, and thus repeat the history of the old Babylonian Empire under Belshazzar. But the German Emperor was just a little precipitate. There had been no hand-writing on...

The Call of Millions. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
The Call of Millions. The anniversary of the declara tion of war found Australians more grimly determined, incomparably more united than they were when the cable brought them tidings that the great struggle of the nations had come at last. Neither in any Legislative chamber, Federal or State, nor in any meeting of the people was there arrogant boasting or unmanly repining. And there is ground for national pride in the reflection that just as the young have responded to the call for men, the rich are ready to re spond to the call for millions. War has woefully changed, the gallant knight no longer scatters meaner men, spurring his way to victory whilst all the world wonders. The man grows, or seems to grow, less and less, the gun to become bigger and bigger, and artillery is a matter of gold rather than of courage. Perhaps it is well that the dramatic, the personal note which appealed so risistlessly to the young has passed, for it is well that war should pass; and though the knight ...

Chemist Tells How to Stop Indigestion. Says Use of Pepsin Leads to Chronic Dyspepsia. " It is a wonder some of us have stomachs left," remarked a well known chemist recently. While all chemists sell a score or more of stomach remedies for which there is a wide demand, most of them are just pepsin pills, which aid diges tion of the- food that is in the stomach at the moment. They have no curative or strengthening effect ou the stomach at all, and of course do not reach or.cure the cause. So the same people keep on coming here and buying and using them until they are real chronic dyspeptics. When anyone really asks my advice, I swear by the or dinary bisurated magnesia, which doesn't digest the food at all, but acts as an acid and sweetens the sour, fermenting contents of the stomach. That stops the pain, heartburn, sour rising, wind, float ing, fulness, etc., in just a few minutes, and the stomach digests its food without help or trouble, which is the proper way. "Doctors make mistak...

Many of the failures at dairying are due to n lack of knowledge of that important subject, and when that is missing the cows soon feel, and show, the results. They gradually go dry, and, with poor returns, dairying is branded an unprofitable industry, and the cows as duflers. What constitutes a good milker ; or bv what method a man can get the utmost from a cow leaving out the question of feed is too often neglected. 1 regret to state that the milking of cows on many dairy farms; seems to be a secondary consideration...

NEW DEVICES FOR SOLDIERS PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
NEW DEVICES FOR SOLDIERS PROTECTION. From the laboratories in Paris many novelties have emanated, which have proved of great usefulness to the sol diers now in the field. Among these are Individual medicine cases and con | denned food in capsules. The latest article for military uso turned out is a mask for the protection of ttio sol diers --against the death-dealing gases usod by the German troops. The new dovico has been tested and found ef ficacious. It will probably soon re place the more or less Improvised moans of protection now employed. The mask consists of an airtight hood equipped with unbreakable eyeglasses. In order to enable the wearer to breathe freely tho hood Is provided with an opening which is covered with a very thick padding of muslin. When the soldier sees tho asphyxia ting vapors approaching he slips the hood over his head, after first Boaklng the muslin padding with a special so lution, which he carries in a little tin tube.

"DASTARDLY WEAPON, AGAINST ALL USAGE." British Commander Says It Requires More Courage to Stand in Trenches for Many Days Than to Make One Brave Charge. Mr. Frederick Palmer, tho famous war correspondent, sends the following from the front:— l.eneral Headquarters of the British Army in France. Field Marshal Sir John French, the British commander, Inspected a caval ry division not long out of the trenches. By brigades those who had survived the shells and asphyxiating gas of the second battle of Ypres were awaiting in a field near their quarters his coming, their khaki melting into Uie green of the grass where they lay resting themselves in the genial sun. When an automobile appeared with the little British flag, which only the commander in chief's car flies, they formed a hollow square. The absolute simplicity of this meeting of leader and men and the thought of all they went through made the scene a most affecting one. The sturdy, white-hair ed soldier was carrying the custom ary w...
TRY IT AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
TRY IT AGAIN. A man walked into a grocor's shop and handed to the assistant a paper containing some white powder. "I say," lie said, "what do you think that is? Just taste it, and tell me your opinion." The grocer smelt It, then touched it with his tongue. "Well. I should say that wan soda." "That's just what i said," was the triumphant reply. "Hut niv wifo said it was rat poison. You might try it again to make sure!" With deep and ancient books to toil, and burn the midnight Standard oil may seem n job forbidding; but it's the proper thing to do, whene'er you have the time, if you have a mind non skidding. If one in social spheres would shine, lie ought to cut out pool and wine, and give some time to study; loud up with wisdom to the guards and read the messages of the bards from Homer down to Ruddy. How often conversation flags, how oft the wfcary evening drags, when people get together, when they have sprung their ancient yarns about the outlook of tho crops, tho poddv and the we...
