We should like to know : Why officers who go to the front and risk their lives for their country should, on their return, find themselves subordi nate to men who stop at home?

A Guarantee to Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 June 1917

A Guarantee to Soldiers. The result of the Federal general elec tion was to a great extent affected by the ?presence, of returned soldiers in the poli tical field. The National party knew it would be so, and worked hard to convince the returned men that their interests lay, not in fighting a lone fight, but In co operating with the men whose mission it was to thoroughly organise the nation for war. The Nationalists knew a little more than the 'official' Labor party, and won the day.

CHEESE, BUTTER, AND BACON AT THE BRISBANE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 June 1917

CHEEsf, BUTTER, AND BACON AT THE BRISBANE SHOW. Something in the vicinity of £50 is 'being offered as .prize-money for he betst trophies of cheese to be exhibited at the next August show. Judging from the enthusiasm with which the competition has been received by manufacturers, the display will be of extensive proportions. This exhibit will undoubtedly prove at tractive, and will eloquently demonstrate the high standard attained by Queens land cheese manufacturers. The National Association has completed arrangements for the erection of a new pavilion measur ing about 100 by 66 feet, subdivided into three halls, in which will be separately displayed the competitive butter, cheese, and bacon exhibits. Ceilings and walls of this ibuilding will be sheeted with fibro-cement, and the design adopted gives due regard to perfection of lighting, ventilation, and control of temperature.

Something the Returned Soldiers Can Do. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 June 1917

Something the Returned Soldiers Can Do. All people Who have been present at. the somewhat stodgy luncheons in honor of district shows are familiar with that figure .of speech, 'the backbone of the country,' with which aspiring eloquence tickles the ears of its agricultural hearers.

The claim .of the latter is beyond dispute. They have proved it by deeds, and that ? has not always been the case in the poli tical sphere with the man who helps things to grow. The men at the front and those who have returned from .the front have 'builded better than they knew.' They did so at the late election, and that apart from personal action in recording their votes.

HOLIDAY FOR SOLDIERS. MEN OF THE FIRST DIVISION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 June 1917

HOLIDAY FOR SOLDIERS. MEN OF THE FIRST DIVISION. Following the recent announcement by Senator Pearce that consideration was being given by the Commonwealth 'Government to the question of granting furlough to members of the first division of the Australian Imperial Force still serving abroad, to enable them to visit | their homes in Australia, many applica tions are being received from relatives to have their soldier kinsmen returned. Senator Pearce stated that pending a decision by the Government in this mat ter no useful purpose would be served by submitting applications to the depart ment for return of the individual soldiers of the first division, as it is the inten tion that all such soldiers should be treated alike. Numerous applications had been received for the return of sol diers not members of the first division. In this connection the Minister stated that while he fully appreciates sacrifices already made in many cases, such ap plications could only be granted in cases of ...

THE AERIAL INVASION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 June 1917

THE AERIAL INVASION. Two grey shapes came flying in from the East, right out from the heart of the sun, and as they came hearer they took on the shape of gigantic birds — birds of prey. And the noise of their wings was as the drone of a myriad bee-hives. Nearer and nearer they came until I could distinguish a small black cross . on the nnder-na.rt. nf fhAir win era TToovanol they were German biplanes. Ever since the outbreak of this horrible massacre in Europe I had dreaded the day when my beloved city would be visited by these wasps of war, when the hurrying crowds in the streets would turn fear stricken faces to the skies, whence rained a ghastly dew of high-explosive bombs. I had pictured to myself the ear-splitting explosions, the shrieks of the dying, torn and mangled by the hurtling steel splin ters. Ugh! And here was the aerial death coming at last, flying on the wings of the wind towards the doomed city. There was nothing to be done; we had no anti-aircraft guns with which t...

WHEN THEY COME BACK. When they come back — those .splendid men who went Steeled with the spirit of a high intent, Who gave their ardent youth so reck lessly ' To keep our honor clean, our nation free — Teller of paltry tales, guarder of shame ful things, Think -you that there will be no reckon ings .When they come back? When they come back, whose blood has . ? dyed the West, From Pozieres' to Havrincount's dark crest — Blind eyes, maimed limbs, that paid the bitter toll — Have they not visioned of some wider goal Who faced new issues fraught with 'fiery breath When, day by day, they shouldered arms with death? When they come back. O fair and listless ji South, Those sons, who were the rose-bloom, of your mouth, Think you that shattered idols may com pete With men who wrested victory from defeat? The grave young dead shall guide their shining band When they come back to make a last brave stand. — A. Gore-Jones.

George: That's all right. Bill: Dick and I have 'been talking over what we discussed the other day; he says you altogether begged the ques tion. Dick: Yes, what I proposed was village settlement, and all your talk was about single-handed farming and selectors. George: Well, what is it that s wrong? Dick: A good, deal. What you were speaking of was bound to be a failure; but in a. system of co-operative village settlement we could help each other and be our own carpenters, blacksmiths, tailors, shoe-makers, and storekeepers. George: That is to say, after strug gling for centuries to develop a social system, when we' have almost reached the goal, because there is a steep hill to climb just at the finish some of you pro pose to turn back and make a fresh start; but, remember, there is no by-path ...
