ATROCITIES ADMITTED. GERMAN SOLDIERS WRITE LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
ATROCITIES ADMITTED. GERMAN SOLDIERS WRITE | LETTERS. Delay best suits the Allies, because the Germans are appalling the world by their atrocious inhumanity. This ■week the French in Lorraine had the good fortune to intercept a large mail of letters written by German sol diers at the front, so that the stories of savagery which are in circulation are no longer dependent upon only French or Belgium asseverations. "We had no need for money," writes one man, "but simply take what we want. If Monsieur le.Francais won't give we shove a revolver under his nose. We make no bones about it so that he can be quite sure the Germans are there." Another says, "The first village we came to after crossing the frontier had been completely destroy ed. Everyone is shot, men and even quite young boys.", Another says, "I have seen three convoys of prisoners, French peasants; all are to be shot." And other, "We ha.ve shot inhabitants between the ages of 14 and. 60, and bagged 30 head."
SOLDIERS SING SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
SOLDIERS SING SONGS. Musical critics explain that the •'Watch on the Rhine" has too long a range for the ordinary German regi i m'ent to sing it effectively when out of breath and excited after a run "at the enemy's trenches. Most of these old heroic and pious airs go by the board on the modern battle-field, and the army that has a pleasing lilt to cheer it on the long march goes farthest. Gordon Highlanders march ed into Khartoum singing not "Scots |Wha Hae" but "A Little Bit off the Top," and "It's a Long Way to Tip perary" is being taught by the Brit ish to the French and the Indians, and even to the German prisoners. All the sombre old battle hymns were invented for fanatical armies in pur suit of unearthly illusions. The mod ern soldier fighting for liberty and the final destruction of war itself, meets death with a smile on his face and the gaiety of a serio-comic song on his lips. The old Crusaders 'and Ironsides and Covenanters were a dour lot, killing each foe for the vis i...

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
Toot Your Own Horn. A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time" she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls ,bellow, and cows moo, and tsvatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail; and isqueaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents kno.w enough to hiss, before they sting. , But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.
How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. | Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to lay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors, without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath^ you, and split up into classes arid cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you twill effectually damn your town and district.
IN PEACE AND WAR. THE FRENCH COMMANDER-INCHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
IN PEACE AND WAR. ■ ■!_ ' « THE FRENCH COMMANDER-iN " " CHIEF. * By H. Hamilton Fyfe in Paris. "I assure you," the Minister of War said to me, "that if I were to take a motor-car and drive into the: zone of operations without General Joffre's i permission General Joffre would have me turned out." The Minister said this "not only without resentment—he said it with pride. That is the spirit in which the French are making war. And Gen eral Joffre, who is in supreme com mand of their armies, is j'ust the man to take full advantage of that spirit. He is a soldier who believes that when fighting has begun no pity,: no personal favor, above all no politics, should be allowed to influence in the slightest detail the conduct of the campaign. He must be, within the zone of operations, undisputed, mas ter. He would give up his post; as "generalissimo" to another, but so Jong as he is in supreme command he will not share either responsibility or power. . . If France had -had a Joffre in 1870 th...
HUMAN HAIR TELLS RACIAL ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
HUMAN HAIR TELLS RACIAL 1 ORIGIN. Scientists are able, by the use of the microscope, to tell from a single human hair to-what great' racial divi sion the original wearer- belonged. If a cross section of the hair is" ellipti cal, the'man was black; if round, the man: was yellow 1 or red; . while the white man's hair is 'oval. r- - The Australian native has hair with the least diam.eter, the bushman of Africa the next," then the American Indian, the Chinese, the white races, of -Europe- and lastly the Japanese, the coarsest of ,all. The /beard4 of a white man is fifty, per cent, thicker than his hair, and' is almost identically the size of the hair of the chimpanzee. The strength of human hair, is, as. a rule, in direct proportion tb:,its thickness. x It is believed that otter skins have been extensively dyed in imitation of the fashionable seal. They are cheap er than,the latter, and when carefully and newly prepared can be distinguish- ; ed only by experts.

GIPPSLAND BACON COMPANY BIG FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES. RECONSTRUCTION SCHEME SUGGESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
CIPPSLAND BACON COMPANY BIG FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES. RECONSTRUCTION SCHEME SUGGESTED. For some considerable time past the operations of the Gippsland Co-opera tive Bacon Curing Company have been carried on under conditions which have not enabled the company to pro gress to any great extent. An ar rangement made with the Gippsland and Northern Selling Company has en abled the company to obtain supplies which, on their financial footing at the time, they could not otherwise have got. This arrangement was under the principle that the Gippsland and Northern Selling Co. supplied pigs under a two-thirds payment system. The Gippsland and Northern Selling Co. has now written to the Board of Directors notifying them that the ar rangement must cease. This, then, apparently leaves the company in a very precarious position. A meeting of shareholders was re cently held in the Yarram Shire Hall to discuss the position. Although the meeting was thoroughly advertised and made known, not more than 20...
