MY DREAM-LOVER. The Girl Who Falls in Love With an Ideal. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
MY DREAM-LOVER. The Girl Who Falls in Love With an Ideal. "All tlie world loves a lover," and every normal woman likes to have_ one of her own at some period of her life. The girl who passes her twenty fifth year without having experienced a love-affair begins to feel ashamed of the fact. Maybe that is why we occasionally hear of women who build air-castles for themselves i-n which they plant a "dream lover." Teaching at the best is a wearying job, and when there appears to be no escaping from it the position becomes heartrending. I knew a teacher who was verging on thirty years of "age, and her hopes of ever having a real lover of her own had almost vanished. She would not so much have mind ed becoming a permanent "bachelor girl" had it not been for the obtru sive sympathy and occasional sneers of her women friends. This galled her to such an extent that she crea ted a little romance for herself. At first she started by going off two or three nights a week without saying where she ...
RECRUITING "OUTBACK." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
RECRUITING "OUTBACK." I Queensland lias responded cheer fully to the present recruiting ap peal. In this State population is so sparsely distributed that to effective ly recruit its -widespread out-back districts -unusual methods were ne cessarily adopted. The decision of j the Government to despatch special trains for recruiting purposes has been amply justified by the results obtained. As only a limited time is allowed the trains to tap a vast area, such as from Brisbane to Charleville —a distance of about 500 miles— the results achieved by the recruiting trains have been remarkable. Five or six trains have been sent out, and up to the present roughly as many hundred men have been enlisted as a direct result. Stories are told of the methods adopted by the recruit ing party on No. 4 train, which tra velled from Rockhampton out over the sun-baked western plains past Barcaldine. There were 1800 miles of country to be covered, and a party of about six men to do the work. In these far ...

Beyond Telling. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
Beyond Telling. Mr. Alf. Hawkins's face looked dark ly ominous as lie counted for the third time the occupants of his pigeon-cote. "Another on 'em gone, bust it!" he muttered, with gloomy fierceness. "An' I t>et it's Stodgers, next door, wot's 'ad 'em all." Here he thumped savagely on the bottom of the cote, thereby causing the cooing birds to scurry about panic-stricken. Mr. Hawkins hastily withdrew his head from inside the cote and sallied forth to the village recreation ground, where, shortly, he came across little Sammy Stodgers. "Now, Sammy," he began, insinuat ingly holding up a sixpenny-piece, "did your father find a pigeon yesterday?" "Yes," replied Sammy, staring at the coin. "A blue one with some white feath ers in its wing?" asked Mr. Hawkins, eagerly. "Dunno," answered Sammy, shaking his head; "yer can't tell their color in a pie!"
Cycling & Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
Cycling & Motoring* ' A An .English motor cycling journalist recently drove 2000 naile3 on 24 gallons of petrol without a single involuntary stop. Sach is the reliability of the modern motor cycle. A deputation that waited on the Minister of Customs to protest against the TOO per cent, duty on motor tyres . got the right answer. Mr Tudor said that he intended to do everything he could to prevent Germany from getting busy on Australia, after the war ; and as the lofcal manufacturers, who had estab lished themselves under the old tariff and had kept the prices from being pushed up, could expand, and as crude rubber could be obtained from Papua and the Northern Territory, he considered the best plan to block German trade was to keep the business for Australians. The utility of the motor cycle was demonstrated in a unique manner in Sydney recently. It appears that a cinematograph film, due to be shown at , Bathnrst—1_33; mile3 away—the same' night* missed the train. The only mea...
No Elopement. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
No Elopement. He was a speculator, and recently, owing to the war, nothing has been coming his way but expenses. One day his daughter informed him in an unfeeling manner that if he did not give her a diamond bracelet worth at least £100 she would elope with the coachman. "Come to my arms, my darling child," he exclaimed, as the tears of joy coursed down his cheeks. "Come to my arms." "Do I get the bracelet?" she asked. 'Of course not," he smiled gladly. "You get the coachman. I owe him eight months' wages."
A TOO SENSITIVE SCOT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
A TOO SENSITIVE SCOT. The following story, of a Scots offi cer, now on leave, Is told in the Man chester "Guardian":— "It was at the time of the big show at Ypres in October, when the Prus sian Guards almost broke through our lines. When at last they were brought up and began to retreat, my friend was in the counter-charge. He found his revolver empty, and snatch ed up a rifle with a bayonet, and rush ed on with his men. He remembered clearly charging a big Prussian, who put up his hands. The Scotsman swerved, but as he passed he saw with the corner of his eye one of the Prussian's hands coming down to his pocket, so he swung around and ran him through, and then rushed on. As he. ran he found himself thinking that he had done wrong; perhaps the man meant nothing, perhaps his hand was hit by a bullet—there might be scores of explanations. He described the thought as running around and around in his head, 'I shouldn't have done that, I shouldn't have done that. It was a sin.' And all ...
CHAPTER XXXIV. Concerns To-day. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
CHAPTER XXXIV. Concerns To-day. I The next day the London papers were full of the raid upon Merton Lodge, the tragic death of the well known diamond-broker, Gregory Ver non, and the arrest of Jules Jean jean and Egisto Bertiaii. The police had given but the most meagre details to the press, there fore the report was only vague, and no hint was forthcoming as to the actjial charges against the three men, or that they had any connection with the cliff mystery at Cromer. The most sensational passage of the report, which was regarded as "the story," or principal feature by most of the papers, was the fact that Jules Jeanjean, having been charged at Bow-street with robbery and mur der, was placed in the cells to be brought up next morning before the magistrate. A warder, however, on going to the cell about half-past eight in the even ing, found the prisoner standing be fore him in defiance. "I refuse to be tried, after all!" he. cried in English, in a loud voice. "I'll escape you yet!" A...

AMUSING INCIDENTS. Deceptive. The car was full. At the next stop a man entered, his head swathed in | bandages. "Make room for the soldier," said a lady passenger to her husband.

HIS FRIEND THE ENEMY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
HIS FRIEND THE ENEMY. "I am •writing in a French cottage ; with a little girl on my knee who has I been sharing the contents of our par cels. The little one has been making us laugh—we use the cottage as a guard-room—by singing 'Tipperary.' "One young German officer I saw wounded was smiling all over his face, and I heard that he was so much pleased with the stretcher-bearers' treatment of him that he gave one of them his Iron Cross. I am not sure about that, though it is quite possible it is true, for the bearers, went out and picked him: up under heavy shell and rifle fire from the Germans. "One stretcher-bearer got shot through the hip while picking up wounded, and while three or four of us were helping him to get his coat off and looking for the wound he was imploring us to leave him alone and get under cover; but, of course, we didn't leave him until two of our bearers had him out of it. . . "I don't think the war will end this year anyhow; it seems like going on for years by t...
TASTING WITH THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
TASTING WITH THE NOSE. Sir Ray Lankester, the eminent man of science, asserts that the flavor of food and drink does not come to us through the sense of taste. That sense, he says, can only furnish sen sations that correspond to the chemi cal composition of the substances presented to it. These sensations, while almost infinite in their shad ings, are few in number. We can dis tinguish by taste only sweetness, bit terness, sourness, and saltness, al though the various intensities of these sensations are innumerable. The distinctive flavor of various foods is not the result of chemical action, and it is not perceived by the taste nerves. Flavors excite the ol factory nerve instead, and are trans mitted- by it to the brain. A person whose sense of smell is impaired is unable to detect the flavor of the food he eats, although he has the taste sensation that it stimulates. This is an explanation of the effect that influenza often has apparently on the taste, but, really, on the sense of...

By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXXIII. Discloses a Strange Truth. "I think, Lola, I had better explain to them the circumstances in which *-a met," young Craig exclaimed with frankness. His hand was still upon her shoulder, his eyes gazing straight | into hers with that intense love-light which, in this world of falsity and fraud is one of the things which can never he feigned. "Yes, do," she urged, clinging closely to him, her frail frame trem bling, for she was still upset and un nerved. -Well, last January I was staying with my mother at the Hotel Adlon, in Berlin, for though I have a place near Monmouth, called Huttoft Hall, left to me hy my father, Sir Alexan der Craig, I am constantly on the Continent. As a bachelor, I prefer life abroad, and indeed, at that time, 1 had not been in England since I came of age, four years before. At the hotel, I found Lola staying with her uncle—...
OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
OBITUARY. © The friends of Mr John Chalmers will regret to learn of his death, which occurr ed suddenly at his residence, Canico, on Saturday. The deceased was a native of Greenock, Scotland, arriving here in the early eighties, and was known as' a skilful horticulturist. For many years he was gardener for Mr James Russell, of Caru gham, and later at Ercildoune, Burrum beet. He deserves to be classed with the most enterprising of the old pioneers for his efforts to establish the fruit-growing industry. He bad unbounded faith in the suitability of the auriferous and scrub country at Oanico for apple growing. Some eight years ago he cleared and planted twenty acres, and the present appearance of 1400 young trees just coming into bearing bears eloquent testi mony to his ability and wisdom. It is a matter of great regret that just as his labors are crowned with success, he should be cut off. A widow is left to mourn her loss. The funeral of the late Mrs Mary Haggis, a very old and respe...
DAIRYING. THE & s. d. OF DAIRY FARMING [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
DAIRYING. THE & s. d. OF DAIRY FARMING How many farmer© realise that where hired labor (hand-milkers) is employed on a dairy farm it costs at least £10 per cow for labor and gra zing every year, and the farmer re ceives no prpfit until the cow has pro duced £10 worth of butter-fat? If a farm costing £30 per acre will carry one cow to every 2% acres, the value of the land required for each eow is £75, and for 15 cows the value is £1125. The pverage milker milks 15. cows, and in wages, food, eto., he costs £2 per week. The annual cost of keeping 15 cows is:— Wages, etc, £2 week for 52 weeks £104 0 0 6 per cent. int. on £1125 67 10 0 Total ,...£171 0 0 This is equal to nearly £11 10/ per cow. Let us call it £10 per cow. Of course, almost every farmer re ceives money for his calves and pigs, but this money is not sufficient to pay for the necessary manure, horse feed, fencing, cropping, rates, etc.; but if we say that one sets off the other, it leaves the main items of wages and...

Mr J. 0. Manifold, M.H.R., speaking at the opening of the Pombomeit jumble fair, said that there was a movement on foot to put returned soldiers on the land, but it was no. good doing this if they were to pay a big rate of interest and be expected to make good. He thought that if the big landholders wonld come forward not only with assistance from their purses, but also say, ,,vHere is a fair proportion of my- land for-setting soldiers on," and ask a fair price for aaaje, and see that the soldiers worked it properly, it would be. far better.

WAR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 November 1915
WAR NOTES. Mr Winston Churchill deeply interest ed .members of the House of Commons on Monday, when he dealt at length with those events of the war with which he was moat closely concerned while a mem ber of the Cabinefc. He admitted thut he was the author of the first naval at tack on the Dardanelles, regarding it as a legitimate war gamble for a prize of inestimable value. Lord Kitchener was responsible for the military operations. With an intimate knowledge of the pro- ! grass of the war, Mr Churchill hazards the opinion that, whereas the campaign of 1915 has beea governed by the short age of ammunition-on the part of the Allies, the campaign of 1916 ought to be decided against Germany because of her shortage of men. In other words, we are passing through a dark time—and it may probably be worse—but a better time is ahead. There is excellent news from the Eastern front. It seems beyond all doubt that General Russky has regained the initiative in tne Baltic provinces, and is usiti...
