A Personal Note. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

A Personal Note. Dear Patkons, AH Accounts to 31st December, 1915, and 31st January, 1916, have been issued, and prompt settlement is desired. Owing to the war and the drought, we did not press for payment during; the past twelve months, recognising the financial difficulties the far mers and producers, and business men generally hfid to face; but we are now looking for a good re sponse to the accounts sent out. The cost of paper and material has greatly increased, not to speak of the increase in wages, during the past twelve months, and the in crease will be greater during the current year. Although the amounts owing in many instances are not large to the individual, the total represents a big sum to us, and we will be grateful if set tlements are made promptly. Yours respectfully, A. W. HINDER, Proprietor.

THE CAUSE OF TRENCH FOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

THE CAUSE OF TRENCH FOOT. Neither the cold, the wet, the put tees, nor the type of boot is, In the. opinion of Sir William Osier, the, cause of "trench foot," the ailment which is occupying the attention of so many R.A.M.C. men at the front. In a letter to the "Lancet" Sir Wil liam lays all the blame on "the com parative inertia of the leg muscles." Pointing out that the tlmbermen in Canada have wet and cold feet for weeks without any ill-effect, he says: "To keep the trencher dry will help, to shorten the time spent in them will help, special socks may help, but the disabling effect of cold-bite are inevitable in feet attached to lose whose muscles have not play enough to maintain a circulation hampered by gravity, cold and wet."'

The Anzac's Farewell. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

The Anzac's Farewell. Good-bye, old chum, a last good-bye. For wo have woid to up and go. Wo fought together, you and I, And lord! it waB a lively show! Wo took our gruel with the best, But chucking it is hard to bear, And I could envy you your rest Under your little cross up there. What did we gain the long months through For such a price as you have paid, And thousands more who fell like you, The gallant boys who came . . . and stayed? Not much, perhaps. In guns or ground, But Just the sort of name that clings, For "Anzac," all the world around, Stands for a lot of useful things. You helped to make it, though your breath Is still for ever and your fame Shall speak of high contempt of death To-those who never heard your name. Good-bye, but while the Turkish shells Fall harmless on our vacant lines Above that hard-won hell of hells For me a crimson glory shines. —Touchstone. "Some men have no Hearts," said a tramp to a fellow-sufferer. "I've been a-tellin' that feller I am so dead b...

The Air Kinema. AEROPLANE 8COUTING WITH A FILM. By Frederick A. Talbot, Author of "Moving Pictures: How They are Made and Worked," "Prac tical Cinematography," etc. The klnema film offers the one sure means of bringing back from the air to the general in command a conclu sive record of what is taking place bohind tho screen of the enemy's field formications. In tho seclusion and undisturbed darkness of the project ing-room the council of war may oc cupy tho seat of the aeroplane ob server and see with their own eyes exactly what was unfolded to him. Following a film which has been taken from aloft brings tho war vivid ly to the spectator's eyes. The build ings appear to bo of Lilliputian pro portions, the open land is divided and subdivided into irregular geometrical designs by criss-crossing high roaUs, bypaths, stroams and railways. Pos sibly an area from forty to sixty miles in diameter is brought within range of the eye, and tho general aspect re calls nothing so much as the ela...

From Various Sources [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 March 1916

From Various Sources J i A^tycal family had been reading In. the Cookery Hints in this paper the culinary thoory that steak, If old and tough, can bo made tender by soaking in vinegar. t Anxious to get the best results from the syBtem, they didn't wait until the aucient roo3ter doomed for Sunday's dinner, was axed, plucked and depriv ed of his gastronomic gear, but start ed on him during his lifetime. Pouring a dose of the best strong table vinegar down his gullet the night before they intended to assassinate him, they laid him aside to allow his flesh and pantry parts to thoroughly absorb the mixture. It promptly killed him, and as the rich uncle who was to have been In vited along to pick a bone of our lovely spring chicken hadn't received the invitation when the backyard burial took place, the vinegar experi ment doesn't seem to have been an overwhelming success.

Clements, of Boort, is in receipt of the following interesting letter from Private George Weatheritt, who is well known in Boort find district : -"Just a few lines to let you know how I am getting on. I will start from when we left Melbourne. We left Port pretty well on time, and anchored in the bay that night to await the tide. When I awoke next morning we were nearly out of sight of land, and I was sea sick. We had very calm weather while crossing the bight; but the sea sickness stuck to   me for five days. We sighted land on the 27 h. It was West Australia, but, didn't call there. After leaving Australia behind the weather began to warm up, and most of the lads slept on deck. There were over 3000 men on board, so   there wasn't much room. We were   packed in like sardines; but the food was splendid. Most of the boys got fat while on board, but I didn't. The ...

GLOOM IN TURKISH CAPITAL. Hatred of the Germans. A correspondent of the New York "World," writing from Con stantinople in November, described tlie gloom and misery of the Turkish capital. He says '■ "Mostot the men have gone into the army, some of them have lost their lives in the battles of Gallipoli, some are wounded in hospital, some have deserted, and escaped into foreign lands, or are hiding i" dark caves at Stamboul ; business is absolutely stopped; the women can do no work; the bread question is menacing, the streets are dark; the winter is at hand, and there is no coal for fuel. The number in need of bread is more than one hundred thousand, the means of charity are lacking, the police are active, unscrupulous, and all powerful; meanwhile a class of^ malefactors and usurpers are en riching themselves at the public expense. "The normal daily life of Con stantinople has been transformed. Very few people are to be seen in the streets, and the character of those'seen is almoslent...

CORRESPONDENCE THE WHEAT GRAB TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

CORRESPONDENCE THE WHEAT GRAB TO THF EDITOR Sir.—Your effort in laying bare the injustice done to the farmer by the recent reduction in the price of wheat is to be congratulated upon. The wealth of Australia comes from the soil, as is quickly proved by droughts and the widespread de pression they cause. While we think the government has done the right thing in controlling the sale of wheat we expect a price that is on a parity with the London mar ket, any more would be robbing the State, any less cheating the grower. A reduction of the pro ducers income will impoverish the country as a whole. What other section of the community, entitled to a certain wage, will agree to be paid one fifth less? Evidently there has been pressure brought to bear in favor of a cheap loaf, for which the grower has to bear the burden. The writer, by this act, is taxed to, roughly, £65. - Is that fair ? What about the maufacturer ? The price of all commodities and the necessary plant which the far mer has ...
