New "Bulletin" Editor. SYMPATHY FOR BACKBLOCKER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

New "Bulletin" Editor. SYMPATHY FOR BACKBLOCKER. Mr. S. H. Pryor, who for 12 months has been in tho editorial chair of the "Bulletin," and who will continue as Mr. Edmon<i's successor, Is not' one of tho early "Bulletin" baud, although for 13 years ho has been editor of the Wild Cat column, which his expert mining and financial knowledge has maintained as one of the beacon lights of the financial world of Australia. Born In Glenelg, South Australia, ho obtained his education there, tak ing up a science course. After com pleting this course ho entered the Edu cation Department. Ho was appoint ed to teach n class of 90 youngsters mostly as old as he was. and six weeks of it quite cured his aspira tions to teach children. An experience during his- scholarship at the Glenelg Grammar School Is probably respon sible for his entry Into Journalism. Ono of tho masters, James Boddmor, now dead, was local correspondent for an Adelaide paper. Boddmer was unmarried and certainly not w...

THE AUNT SALLY OF SOCIETY WHY THE FARMER IS FARMED Wheat Schemes and Schemers BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

thE aunt sally of society WHY THE FARMER IS FARMED • Wheat Schemes and Schemers BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS [by monitor] Farmers arc indignant, and with ' good reason, at'the latest evidence' of the lack of sympathy of legis lators for the producing interests of the country, as expressed by the action of the Wheat Commission in reducing the already lowered price of wheal for home consumption. It was claimed by the originators of the schcmc that its purpose and ob ject was to secure to the farmer I lie full value of his wheat, which is de termined by the World's market, and there its duty, as far as prices go, should begin and end. It was never contemplated that the powers of the Commission would extend to restriction of prices, for the benefit of whom? Not the community at large, but the special advantage of the industrial classes, pcopleing the larger centers, whose obedient rep resentatives the 'powers that be' arc. Mow fortunate of them!—they possess the strength of unity, the awc...

KORONC VALE NEWS A Cross-Eyed Department [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

A Cross-Eyed Department KORONC VALE NEWS That coraprhcnsive and cumber some piece of human machinery known as the Railway Department, is a very patriotic concern, if we arc to judge from the number of its members who have enlisted and the extent of its contributions to the war funds, but the former is a section of the machine only and the latter compulsory ; but there is another section of the same mach ine which sacks reliable men with three and four sons serving their country in the red fields of battle and who have still families depend ent upon them, and which, also, curbs the laudable desires of pat riotically disposed members of the service by placing obstacles in the way. We refer now to an applica tion from the local Ways and Works branch for permission to utilise the workshop and tools outside of working hours, in making furnit ure for the comfort of sick and wounded soldiers. The reply came that the work must be confined to railway men. a roll must be kegt, hours specified...

CORRESPONDENCE KORONG VALK BRASS BAND TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

CORRESPONDENCE KOR.ONG VALK BRASS BAND TO THK KDITOR Sir.—I was very pleased to see by your last issue that our Band, which has braved the storms of 27 years, is still to live, despite the loss to its ranks by members enlis itig, and to its funds on account of spare capital going to strengthen the siittws of war. The band has been a credit to the town and dis srict. As it is still a going concern if the people of the district act to gether it is easier to improve an al ready good organization than to start again once it gets out of action. I understand Mr E Hewston is tak ing charge for an allowance that will not nearly compensate him for loss of time, which shows he is making a sacrifice for the sake of the band, which should inspire a good many of us and move us to help. [A CAPITAL SUGGESTION] Now, 300 shillings would make the financial position sound and I would suggest that the public sub scribe to a shilling fund and make an entertainment unnecessary. Ten shillings is good but,...

FATTY OF ANZAC. Fatty, a large, well-nourished Turk, with a certain humorous twist. Used to pop up his liead from tho trench and signal ub when we - missed! Then he would Just bob down again and his laugh was loud and gay, For Fatty was always fond of his joke in his curious Turkish way. Out Fatty was more than a bit of a sport wben all was said and done. For he spotted two of our wounded lads that lay In tho blistering sun; And up he bobbed and salaamed and smiled, and yon bet we didn't lire When Fatty crept up with a pot of drink to givo lliem their hearts' desire.

with which it incorporated the Boort Standard. Korong Vale Lance, and Quam batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, Maich 2. The Public Conscience. At the inter-State conference of Treasurers, it was admitted that the State and the Commonwealth owe a duty to the returned soldier. There is not the slightest reason to doubt th-t Great Britain will also recognise its responsibility, and that it will do its part in settling those who have fought its battles within the territories over which the Union Jack floats. There is no disposition to repeat the blunder made after ihe Beer War, when thousands of soldiers, tempted by low fares, shipped to the United States. War has taught us that we need our defenders, that we shall need them till general disarm ment comes, for our foes number at least a hundred and fifty million and we have neither the power nor the desire to exterminate them. The States are to find the land. Their possibilities in that d...

'! . Englishwoman in a German Prison. LITTLE FOOD AND MUCH HATE. { Soon alter the German occupation of Brussels au official notice posted on the walls ol the city announced a number of sentences for political of fences. At the head of the list was "Edith Carter, musical artist, sen tenced to a year's Imprisonment for insulting a German officer." Mrs. Carter is now back in England, having served every day of her sen tence. The charge against her was that she called a German soldier who grasped her arm and tore a patriotic button from her coat "Cochon!" (pig). She denies that she ever used the word. For this she spent just on a year in the prison of Siegburg, near Cologne, dressed in convict clothes, kept in solitary confinement and fed on convict fare — Convict No. 173. Young, bright and intelligent, she still shows in the pallor of her face the effects of the prison life, which even some weeks of liberty in Brussels have not yet removed.
