VENEREAL DISEASES. ASTONISHING EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

VENEREAL DISEASES. ASTONISHING EVIDENCE. Giving evidence before the Par liamentary Select Committee on Venereal Diseases last week, Dr. Sir Herbert Maitland made cer tain grave and startling state ments. 'There is a wave of im morality sweeping over us here.' he said. 'Such a wave as com^s over an cuuiitoes m war iinic. The disease that is being spread abroad, however, comes not from houses of ill fame. It is 'coming from the clandestine immoral girl — from her who is outwardly ly respectable. Take the scene nightly at the railway station ; it is remarkable. There are those of us who know what* it means. The trains tire met by bands of giddy girls, who do not know enough to understand when they are infected, and who never go to a doctor until they are driven to one. Down at Milson Island I have had, in seven months, 2000 cases of men suffering from ven ereal diseases, - and I find tliat the greatest number of the pati ents 'blame the Central Railway Station.' They confess that there...

SHORT SERIAL STORY. The Usurper.(Continued). r-Q. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

SHORT SERIAL STORY. The; Usurper, (Continued). I shall go to London tomor row and find Robin,' broke in Con stance. 'He is pretty sure to wire ms his address, but should he fail to do so I shall have lit tle difficulty in tracing him. Pro bably he will send for his mo ther, and a prepaid telegram to the McNabs would bring me the desired information.' Anna expressed extreme satis faction. She had loner considered that Constance was getting in a groove, and should visit England more frequently. She tremulously offered to accompany her sister, who merely declared she could please herself, it made no dif ference, remarking coldly : 'I shall take two servants with me, a man and my maid, so I shall be well looked after, both on the journey and at the hotel.' Miss Huntley retired , feeling snubbed. She was not very anxious to hurry off to London at a day's notice, and had made the sugges tion out of kindness to Constance. They . talked of little else all the morning, and, during lunch Anna...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. ? ^ ? [From Our CorreRpondcift.] SYDNEY. Monday, 5 p.m. Recruiting last week was en couraging, but it was far short of what must be supplied each week before the end of the month if eligibles are not to be called up. Unionists gathered in force in the Domain yesterday and pro tested against prohibition of free discussion on compulsory service. The meeting was orderly, except one section close to the plat form, composed chiefly of soldi ers. The Government intends to as sist farmers in building silos to enable them to provide for dry seasons. One clause of the Liquor Law Amending Bill, which is to be introduced into Parliament, pro vides for the closing of all bil liard rooms at 11 p.m. Refresh ment shops affected will be al lowed to #pen earlier and only close during one part of the day.

Local News. TERRIBLE BURNING FATALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

Local News. ♦ — TERRIBLE BURNING FATALITY. Mr. M. Walsh, of Cobargo, went to Begk. to attend the cattle sale last Wednesday, and while there received the terrible news that his home had been burnt down, and his eldest child, a g'irl of five years, burnt to death. It appears that Mrs. Walsh was engaged outside the house, when she saw the place in flames. The eldest girl and the baby were inside, and the third girl was fortunately play ing outside. The distracted mo ther had only just time to res cue the baby before the whole place was in flames, and the little girl perished. The dwelling was completely demolished in twenty minutes. Crows have killed a large num ber of sheep in this district dur ing the present lambing season. We regret to learn that Mrs. D. S. Young, of this town, is an inmate of the Hospital, suffer ing from heart trouble. She is making satisfactory progress. His Grace Archbishop Kelly will' make a visitation to south coast districts this month. He is due at Moruya ...

FIT FOR SERVICE. STATISTICIAN'S ESTIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

MT FOR SERVICE. STATISTICIAN'S ESTIMATE. The Commonwealth Statistician, Mi*. G. H. Knibbs, recently pre pared a return of the number of males eligible for military ser vice, based on the war census cards. 'These figures indicate,' says the Statistician, 'that on June 9 there were resident in the Com monwealth 452,618 'fit' men aged 18 to 44 last birthday who had not enlisted, ior, having enlisted, had not yet gone into camp. From a careful review of the da ta it appears probable that this total is fairly accurate, but th,at the distribution into 152,910 sin gle men, 4849 widowers and di vorced men, and 294,859 married men is less securely based. The number of single men available may possibly be understated, and the number of married men may be overstated.'

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. Sir, — I felt somewhat . amused on reading a paragraph in last Wednesday's issue of the 'Daily Telegraph,' under the heading of 'Seventy-five and Feeling Fit,' in which it was announced that a local septuagenarian patriot had offered himself' for enlistment, as well as £100 on his being accep ted for service. Now, it is a great pity that the belligerent spirit has found an exit so late in life. What a great chance1 for such an adven turous and patriotic citizen dur ing the Soudan campaign or the South African war ! We seem to have quite a few fireside patriots, who are well beyond the limit of military age, and who are also aware of their inability . to pass the necessary medical test. However, the £100 should not go to waste under the present circumstances,, and there should be no reason why it should have to remain at home, even if the owner has to, as the patriotic funds or the Commonwealth Wav Loan would not, according to all accounts, be encumbere...

Employers of Labor. Further Liability. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

Employers of Labor. Further Liability. The Workmen's' Compensation Bill, which has already passed the Legislative Assembly, and is at present being Jdealt with in com mittee in the Legislative Coun cil, is, in its provisions, of vital import to emplo5rers of labor, whether this be manual, cleri cal, domestic, or otherwise.

EFFECT OF SIX O'CLOCK CLOSING. POLICE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 12 September 1916

EFFECT OF SIX O'CJjOCK CLO ?SING.. POLICE REPORT. As a consequence of recent dis closures made about the evasion of six o'clock closing of liquor bars, and which became the sub ject of some discussion in Par liament,, the Premier instructed the Inspector-General of Police to make investigations and prepare a report. The Inspector-General says he has received reports from the of ficers in charge -jf the fourteen metropolitan police divisions. With the exception of one— Mar- rick ville — all these officers admit that sly-grog selling is indulged in to a greater or less extent, and express the view that in all probability the earlier closing of hotels will tend to increase the evil. Froni several divisions— no- tably Darlinghurst— -come reports that six o'clock closing has mar kedly reduced the evils of drun kenness, assaults, and street brawls, which the officers repor ting hold to more than compen sate for any slight increase in sly-grog selling.

Late War News. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 12 September 1916

Late War News, — * ? The Allies continue to display much activity at many points. Many counter-attacks have been repulsed, and slight advances made in places. Gorman and Bulgarian troops have occupied the town of Tut raken, on the Danube, on Rou mania's -southern frontier. A Ger man communique claims that 20, 000 men ;and 100 guns were taken. Balkan telegrams do not con firm the extent of the German claims. The Bulgarian commu nique merely refers to the oc cupation of the town. There has been much activity on the Salonica front. Sir Douglas Haig, in his final report on Friday, stated: — There has been an intense artillery bombardment on both sides. The general situation is unchanged. Irish regiments participated in the capture of Guillemont on Sunday. They behaved with the greatest dash and gallantry, and took no email share in the sue-' cess then achieved. Our bombardment of Guillemont was extraordinarily effective. The Germans were killed in masses. It was a frightful sight. Many ...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT OF HOSPITALS [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 12 September 1916

LOCAL GOVERNMENT OF HOP PITALSr At the last conference of the Local Government Association a motion was carried affirming the desirability pf creating hospital districts and for the. levying of. a hospital rate. A committee was appointed to draw up a scheme iu pursuance of this resolution lor submission to shire 'and mu nicipal councils. The report of this committee is now before us. The existing system of main- . tenance by voluntary subscrip tions and incessant cadging, plus Government subsidy, is condem-. ned, while the management is characterised as being slipshod and open to abuse, owing large ly to the fact that in a great inany cases members of hospital committees are trading w'.ih the hospitals. It is further pointed out that Avhile the demands up on the accommodation provided by these institutions is growing, thereby relatively increasing the cost of management (in 1901 the annual expenditure was £218,000, and it 'had grown to £302,000 in 1913, and is si ill mounting up), -...
