WAR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
WAR NOTES. Reports are persistent in stating that a large German force—one estimate is 200,000 men—is beiug transferred from Russia to the Western front, where the Kaiser has ordered a big offensive, in the hope of retrieving what was lost in the Allies " push " in September. The Russians, claim to be advancing westward in the Dvinsk and Riga regions. Dr. Dillon, the " Daily Telegraph " foreign correspondent, repeats bis asser tion that our diplomats failed in the near East because they did not realise the power that King Constantine exerts in Greece. A Paris journal says that Lord Kitchener is bound for the Dar danelles, and afterwards to Egypt, Mace donia, and Athens. The leading German Socialist journal, the " Vorwaerts," has been suspended oa account of its criticisms of the Govern ment's food supply policy. The Leipsio " Yolks Zeitung " has published a mani festo calling a meeting to protest against the present high food prices in Germany. The manifesto states that " whilst the...
Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
Cycling & Motoring. From 1917, the French Government will make denaturized alcohol, a State monopoly, and will take the necessary steps to encourage the use of this fuel in motor vehicles. The movement is. stated to be part of a drastic schemes for the re form of the liquor traffic A leading American motor cycle manufacturer has j*U3t placed on the mar ket a novel machine which is a great de-i parture from the standarn type of motor cycle. The machine in question is driven by a single cylinder air-cooled h.p. engine, which is incorporated in the front wheel. The power is transmitted to the front tyre through a reduction, gear. The whole weight of machine is about 115lbs., and it is said to have very satis factory results in road trials. It is surprising that some effort has j not been made by motor car manufac turers to eliminate or check vibration be tween the car chassis and bodywork. The use of rubber buffers or pneumatic cushions interposed between the chassis and body a...
The Place of Dragons CHAPTER XXXI. "Sheen of Thy Pasture." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
The Place of Dragons By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXXI. "Sheen of Thy Pasture." The autumn sun. shone brightly in to the artistic, little sitting-room at the Berkeley Hotel, overlooking Pic cadilly and the Green Park, where, next morning, I was . seated alone with Lola. She was dressed in a pretty, neat ly-made gown of a delicate brown shade, with silk stockings and smart little shoes to match, and as she leaned back in her cosy arm-chair,' her pointed chin upon her white hand, her big blue eyes, so full of expression, were turned upon. me, their brows slightly knit in her earnestness. Upon the centre table stood a big silver bowl of dahlias and autumn foliage, while upon a sideboard was lying a fine bouquet of roses which a page-boy had brought in as we had been chatting. I related my strange experience of the previous night, whereupon she had said in a low, intense voice: : 1 - "Yes....

Cabby's Impression. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
Cabby's Impression. iThe old lady lived in constant fear | of having her purse stolen, so when i she went out she kppt it in a pocket ' in her petticoat. The other day she went l.o see her daughter, who was ill, and hired a cab. At the end of the journey she started to search for her concealed pocket; but, being worried about her daughter, could not find it quickly. The cabman, not understanding the meaning of her strange move ments, stood and watched her. At last, growing impatient, he growled out: "I say, missis, when you've done a scratchln', p'raps you'll jest . settle with m«. My fare's two hot)!"

SOME MYSTERIOUS MARRIAGES. Inexplicable Matches Made by Men of Genius. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
SOME MYSTERIOUS MARRIAGES. Inexplicable Matches Made by Men of Genius. Two books were published some . time ago which in one particular suf ficiently support the statement of Mr. Hardy's Wessex rustic that "the ' queerest things in life belong to love l and matrimony." It is admitted that "The Private Life of Henry Mait land," by Mr. Morley Roberts, is in all essentials a. life of the late George Gissing, the -novelist of "New Grub Street," and the author of the much read and much-admired "Private Pa pers of Henry Ryecroft." It was known that Gissing had married un happily, but that is no uncommon ex perience. What was revealed to the general public for the first time was much more startling, much more un common. Here was a University man, a man of culture and refinement, a man who loved the classics of literature, whose thoughts were largely centred in an cient Greece and in Italy, a man of genius in his way, whose books were appealing more and more to thought ful readers—here was ...
FALLING A MILE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
I FALLING A MILE. I Some interesting experiments have been made recently with falling bod ies. It is stated, for instance, that a car of broken rock could be dumped into the shaft of a mine a mile deep without injury to a man standing di , reetly underneath. The reason is that the rock •would never reach the bottom, but would lodge in the sides of the shaft on tim bers that protrude a few inches at intervals—that is, the rock .would not fall straight, since these shafts are exactly vertical. In the experiments conducted two round metal balls were dropped into the centre of a shaft by burning threads by -which they were suspend ed so as to give them no lateral mo tion. It was tried to catch the balls in a box of clay in the bottom of the shaft. None . of them was caught. One ball was never found afterwards. The other was found in the east wall ' of the , shaft only a few hundred feet ! below the surface. The explanation is that the earth is revolving from , west to east, which gave t...
WHY A WHIP "CRACKS." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
WHY A WHIP "CRACKS." I Why does a whip crack? Proba bly the coachman most adept at the art would not be able to tell you. And no wonder. For the reason is one that has puzzled some of the great est authorities on dynamics. An ex planation was tentatively offered re cently by Prof. C. V. Boys in the course of the series of lectures for juveniles at the Royal Institution. Briefly, it has to do with the fact that, owing to the action of centri fugal and other forces, the speed at which the whip travels through the air is greater and greater, throughout its length, and so great at the end that it comes up to the velocity of sound. "Mechanics in the Home" is the al luring title of the series of lectures, and by means of very interesting ex periments the professor showed what are the principles underlying vari ous every-day and, apparently, simple devices. Friction, for instance, is one of the greatest. To the wonderment of his boy and girl audience, Prof. Boys took some "safety" matches ...
WHEN GIRLS MUST SAY "NO." A Problem Girls Have to Face is Solved in This Article. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
WHEN GIRLS MUST SAY "NO." A Problem Girls Have to Face is Solved in This Article. There is only one more trying thing for a girl than being proposed to by a man for whom She is well aware that she can never care, and that is to refuse a soldier on the eve of his departure for the front. Now, there is a right and a wrong way of saying "No," to a man. There must be no half-heartedness about the refusal, for that is almost tantamount to giving a degree of en couragement. Having made up her mind that though he is a nice companion he could never be her husband, a girl must be most decided; she must not use a term suggesting or giving the slightest hint that his proposal might be favorably considered later on. Jn defence of this method of refusal it might be said that some girls don't like to be harsh; they try to put a man off; they don't want to appear un kind, especially if he is a soldier who is going out to fight; yet in reality they are very unkind indeed; it is far better to settle...

TWO DOUGLAS SLADEN STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
TWO DOUGLAS SLADEN STORIES. Mr. Douglas Sladen's book, "Twen ty Years of My Life," recently pub lished, will interest a host of readers who would like to know more of the personal side of the innumerable writers and novelists of the day whose chronicler Mr. Sladen appears to be. So many literary friends does Mr. Sladen refer to (they are to be counted in hundreds) that . some of his reviewers have jocularly suggest ed that the writer who is not referred to ought to apologise for his existence. Of the many good stories to be found in the volume we have taken the liberty of extracting two. When I was in America, Eugene Field edited one of the great Chicago dailies, and was principal author of the West. My first meeting with him was a characteristic one. I was at an "at home" in New York, talking to the editress of a fashion paper, who had also written books of twaddly gush about travel. The hostess brought up Field, and introduced him to the editress. "Very glad to meet'you, ma'am," h...
Linton Police Court. SATUBDAY, NOV. 6, 1916. BEFORE MB BEAD MUBPHY, P.M. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
SATUBDAY, NOV. 6, 1916. BEFORE MB BEAD MUBPHY, P.M. William Musgrave, a colored man, was charged by Constable Kirk with carry ing loaded firearms, without the permis sion of the local authorities, on 30th October.

He had warned accused previously that he would be arrested if he carried a revolver. Constable Crimmins gave accused a very bad character, and ...
HIM! A Page of Light but Interesting and Instructive Little Articles, by Pearkes Withers, about the "Lord of Creation" [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
HIM! I A Page of Light but Interesting and Instructive Little Articles, by Pearkes vVithers, about the "Lord of Creation" It ib commonly believed that mail lias descended from Adam—as a re sult, of course, of The Fall. Woman is an ardent supporter of this belief, and considers that man has descend ed a very long way. She may be right, .but she ought not to overlook die fact that he has descended always in her company, and would never have descended at ill without her aid. - Ac cording to the anthropologists, how ever, man was originally a monkey. This theory does not find favor with woman, because it suggests that man is considerably better than he used to be, whereas she is convinced that he is infinitely worse. Also because, although she hates to think that her original mother may have been con structed from one of Adam's ribs, she finds it still more hateful to think that her original mother may have been a chimpanzee. That is why v in recent years, she has conceived a repugnance...
A STUDY OF CORAL REEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
A STUDY OF CORAL REEFS. During most of the year 1914, Pro fessor W. M.' Davis, of Harvard Uni versity, was occupied in visiting and studying islands in the Pacific Ocean with the object of testing the various hypotheses that have been proposed to account for the formation of coral reefs. The problem is an old one, bu has been the subject of especial active discussion in recent years. In an account of his investigations just published, Professor Davis, after re viewing various other attempted ex planations, states that Darwin's sim ple theory of subsidence is the only one that appears to account satisfac torily for the formations he has visit ed. This theory assumes a slowly subsidising ocean bottom, as a result of which the islands gradually sink, diminish in size, and eventually dis appear, while the fringing coral reefs grow upward and are converted into barrier reefs and atolls.
Prevention of Fires. "BURNING OFF" REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 November 1915
" BURNING OFF " REGULATIONS. As a result of the prolific growth due to the present favorable season, it is deemed necessary to issue a very special caution as to the lighting of fires and burning off. The Minister of Lands (Mr Lawson) therefore desires to invite the co-operation and assis tance of all concerned ip minimising the risk that must occur during the approachiug summer season, Too much care cannot be exercised. Circular notices are being dis tributed through the Crown Lands bailiffs and police bailiffs, setting out the various sections of the Land Act dealing with pre vention of fires. These notices give complete information as to the law, and full atten tion thereto ia desired. The following ex tracts from the circular notice referred to give some of the chief provisions (a) Any person who lights a fire for the burning of stubble, straw, hay. grass, or her bage between the first day of November and the last day of March, unless between the hoars of twelve noon and six in ...
