ORDER OF THE SWAN. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

ORDER OP THE SWAN. The German Emperor can afford to shed his titles and decorations-he has bo many-but there is one which the German Empress cannot relin quish, unless that particular order of knighthood is to become extinct. That is the Order ot the Swan, which was founded by the Elector Frederick n. of Brandenburg in 1443. The insignia consists of a gold chain in which diamonds and rubies alter cate, to which is suspended a med allion ol the Madonna and Child. Below this is a silver swan sur mounted by pearls. With this goeB u star, worn on the left shoulder, on which the swan, the Madonna, and the Saviour are represented. At first the Order ot the Swan was in tended for men and women, but it fell into abeyance at the Reforma tion, and on its revival it was re stricted exclusively to the Queen ot Prussia. Should the present Empress or Queen of Prussia become a widow ?he would have to surrender the or der to her successor on the throne.

THE FIELD HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

THE FIELD HOSPITAL. Doctors may err, even in the still ness of the sick room. How much more, then, are they likely to make mistakes in the uproar of the battle field ? That this is so is shown by the experience of the famous Rus sian General Dragomirofl, who once narrowly escaped losing his legs. He sommanded a division during the Russo-Turkish War, and fell in the fighting at the Shipka Pass, wound ed in several places. He was carried unconscious to a field hospital, and came to himself just as the doctors were about to amputate both legs. Dragomirofl said he would rather take his chance of dying, but they persisted. Then he drew a revolver and swore he would blow out the brains of the first man who tried to u»e a lance on him. He had his way, but for over a week he held that revolver tightly clenched in his hand, fearing that the surgeons would yet play a trick on him. At night he made his servant stand on guard armed with a rifle. He re covered after a few weeks' illness, and the...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

To the Editor. Sir,-I notice tliat action is at last to be taken to enforce the law in certain towns with respect to the price of bread, as some bakers are said to have been sell ing the 4-lb loaf a price higher than that fixed by the Price of Food Board. Surely the action of some bakers, in view of this state of affairs, in reducing their prices to 9Hd. and 9d. not only shows a dread of the law but also that they are prepared to accept a little less profit. Does it not also strike you as being justifiable that, if 9d. is a reasonable price for bread, that people who have been paying more than that prico should be entitled to a refund of the money overpaid since the price of the 4-lb. loaf was defin itely fixed at 9d., which is some weeks ago ? It is a hard enough struggle for people to make both ends meet now, without having to pay more than is absolutely necessary, either for cash or credit. There are, likewise, many other inflated foodstuffs that could . stand the " pruning knife...

Punchisms. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

Punchisms. How liappy we would be, if wo had cash-unlimited cash. We could spend it on the glorious country with oven greater free dom and better result than we have with what we are able to borrow. Most Federal and State politicians-all who aro worth their salt-have cut and dried schemes of their ideal States, and these only require cash. The scheme that most wants cash now is Honourable Andrew's proposal for strategic railways, combined with various proposals from naval and military officers for improve ments in our defensive powers. We want ships, docks, dockyards, 1 arsenals, small arms' factories, drill halls, rifle ranges, and rail ways. There is little doubt now that if we" had eleven thousand pounds lying idle-as wo had, be fore war, in the capacity of the Australian note issue for inflation it would lie put into strategic rail ways. The Government has pre pared its full case for the Fisher scheme, and its only flaw is the lack of cash. The shortcomings of our present railwa...
