Mr Bennett at Trafalgar. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
Bennett at Trafalgar. Mr Bennett, M.H.R. Liberal can didat3 for Gippsland, addressed a meeting of electors in Trafalgar, on Wednesday the 19th. inst. Cr Bran igan presided and briefly introduced him. ,, Before dealing with politics, Mr Bennett relerred to the war now rag ing and stated that the Government desired the people of Australia to view th« matter with calmness, and deal with foreign races living in their midst, in a tolerant and cour teous spirit. It was impossible to say what the result 01 the present conflict would be, and how far it would extend. It was the duty of Australians to be ready to respond to the calls of the Empire. Referring to politics, he said the question had been raised in some quarters that the elections should be posponed, owing to the crisis in which the Empire is plunged. Al though not agreeing with this view, he considered it was of vital impor tance not to change the Government at the present time. Owing to the falling off in importations, there-' w...

MOTORS IN THE WAR. THEIR VALUE AS TRANSPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
MOTORS IN THE WAR. THEIR VALUE AS TRANSPORTS. The value of motor transportation will lie tested to the utmost during the present European struggle. Motor cars, commercial and passenger, will he taken over in hundreds of thous ands by the military authorities throughout England, France, Germany, Russia and the various countries em broiled in the present trouble. In Germany the military authorities have 12U automobile road-trains, which will be of immense value for transport pur poses, ,as they can each carry about ICO tons of merchandise, and aver age from six to ten miles an hour. Ill addition to that slie lias the tfnll on some S50 subsidised motor lorries. In England and France the same provi sion has been made, thousands of com mercial vehicles being subsidised by the respective governments for use in time of war. Needless to say, they will all nosv be requlsitionised in ad dition to hundreds of thousands of privately-owned passenger vehicles. It is interesting to note that Engla...

The cash book and tho dockets corresponded. Mr MiIIb' valuation of £3 per cow for skini milk comes from ...
NAVAL TACTICS. THE SUBMARINE FACTOR. REVOLUTIONARY THEORIES. AUSTRALIA AND MARAUDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
NAVAL TACTICS. THE SUBMARINE FACTOR. REVOLUTIONARY THEORIES. AUSTRALIA AND MARAUDERS. Sudden battle between the great navies of Kurope ac centuates again the doubt concerning the utility of the new scientific naval weapons, particularly that of the sub marine. Several of the leaders of the scientific school of naval warfare are confident that the submarines will sweep the sens, and their revolution ary theories may l.o proved within the next few days. A typical pro-submarine forecast is that of Mr. Arnold White. "In advo cating the building of aircraft and sub marines," he said in the recent "Times" controversy, "Sir Percy Scott reasons that the battleship can no long er perforin the function for which she is built, because she can be destroyed in harbor, anil cannot leave harbor for fear or destruction by submarines, if we were at war to-morrow with a Power that (1) is in striking distance of submarines, and (2) has sub marines. naval experts must tell us whether our battleships wo...
Mr Wise at Trafalgar. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
Mr Wise at Trafalgar. XIr Wise, Independent Liberal can didate for Gippbland, addressed a large meeting' in Trafalgar, on Tues day night last. Mr A. Harris pre sided and introduced the candidate. Mr Wise, who was well received, said that uo time in the history of politics, was the parly evil more ap parent than it was tod.iy. At the beginning of the last Parliament the position of parties was 37 011 the Government side and iiS on the Op position. The Fisher Government resigned and Mr Cook was called upon to form a Ministry. Mr John son was unanimously elected Speak er. The position then was that there were 37 members 011 each side of the House, and the Speaker, who is supposed to be free from his party, in the chair. Here was a chance for useful Leg islation with non-contentious meas ures. Mr Cook must have recog nised that they could not pass party measures unless they I'orcd the Speaker to be a party man. He should have said, "we arc not going to degrade the Speaker by making him ...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. A girl petitioner's mother in the Melbourne Divorce Court admitted that slio bought the marriage ring be cause the young man came to the wedding without one; also she paid tile parson's fee. The bridegroom was .walking off in the absent-minded wav of Ills kind When the clergyman said tactfully, "\oting man, come back and kiss your wife." The parties lived together for exactly live minutes alter the ceremony, and as t lie bridegroom went out at once ami didn't come back in two and a half vcars the c^urt agreed that he had forfeited all right to come back for ever after.

Only a few hours before meeting his death in the electric chair, Ra fael Longo, an Italian, was married In the "death house" at the penitenti ary at Trenton, New Jersey. Ho had lived with his bride lor some years, and both had always believed them selves to be married; but it was dis covered at the last moment by the priest who attended the condemned man that their union was not legal according to the laws of the State of New Jersey. Ill order that bis wife might Inherit such property as Longo left, the marriago ceremony was de cided upon, and the couple, with the burs between them, joined hands while the priest read the marriage service over them, and pronounced them man and wife.

Hero the couple plighted their vows in the presence of their three children and of the chief warder and his a...
STRENGTH of the NATIONS GREATEST ARMIES IN ALL HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
STRENGTH of the NATIONS GREATEST ARMIES IN ALL HISTORY. For many reasons there can be 110 definite statement as to tile number ot troops likely to be engaged in the present tremendous European war, but recent statistics show that Servia can place about 200,000 soldiers in the field. The Austrian Army lias a peace strength of 431,000, and a war strength of 3,710,000. Russia has in Europe a peace strength of nearly 050,000, while the war strength of the Em pire's troops exceeds 5,000,000, with reserves totalling 3,000,000. Ger many's war strength is estimated at about 4,350,000. France's first lino ef fective -army is put down at 2,500,000, but she can provide 2,000,000 more if necessary. Italy'B war strength ia given as 3,380,000 (including 2,275,000 reserves). The number of troops that Great Britain will put into the field will, of course, depend entirely on the enemies' campaign and cannot be stat ed. The naval strength of the Triple Alliance is infinitely less than that of the Tri...

HOW AUTHORS GET IDEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
HOW AUTHORS GET IDEAS. Writing is an art that almost any educated person may iearn-that is it they liavo enough industry in their make up. But it is o£ little use to learn composition if you have not got ideas. You must have a plot before you can write a story, and plots are the great stumbling block to the aver age writer. Mr. Charles Garvice, the novelist, says thaL it is while shaving that most of his plots come to him. Lucky man! Most people are too intent 011 seeing that they do not gasli their chins to think of anything else at that particu lar stage of their toilet. But, perhaps, Mr. Garvice uses a safety razor. A great many people think best in bed, and many writers sleep with a pad and pencil beside them. Nothing is more annoying than to think of some gorgeous situation just before go ing to sleep, and then lind in the morn ing that the brilliant idea has faded like a dream. .Mr. 11. G. Wells is one of those for tunate men who brim with ideas. He is said to have a collectio...
AN HOUR WITH NEOLITHIC MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
,AN HOUR WITH NEOLITHIC MAN. The discovery of the now famous human skull In tlio IMltdown gravel' pit near Lowes lias added much to our knowledge of Palaeolithic man, but we are still unable to form an accur ate picture of the appcarance of that interesting person. With regard to men of the succeeding, or Neolithic age, anthropologists can outline a sketch which in Its main features may he verified by known facts. The tfclontinc examination of skeletons and burial-gilts, the excavation of grave-mounds and earthworks, the comparison of British relics with those of French caverns or Swiss lake dwellings, the study of skulls and hair and eyes have yielded clear testimony concerning the folk who lived in Bri tain four thousand years ago. To present a picture the "flowing vesture" of lime must bo disturbed a little, so that we may peer backwards into the prehistoric age. We have to imagine an England somewhat larger than the one which we now know. Its area must he extended outwards until...
SOON ROUSED HER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
SOON ROUSED HER. "If wo could rouse licr from this apathy," said the doctor, turning from the patient with a worried look, "there might be some hope. If she could be made to speak we might make her re alise her condition and get her to make an effort to save herself." He turned to the husband, who knelt by the bed, his haggard face buried in the white counterpane. "You understand her so well," said the physician, almost irritably, "can't you say or do something that will arouse her from this stupor? Isn't there anything you could do that would awaken her?" A look of hope lighted the husband's pale face. He rose witiiout a word and left the house. It was midnight. The watchers by the bedside heard the rain pelting against the side of the house and whistling around the corners of the old home. A step sounded on the gravel walk outside. In another second there was a click of a latch-key fumb ling in the keyhole of the front door. The restless turning of the sick wo man's head upon the ...
