SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Harrie Oliver, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Oliver, of Bac chus Marsh:- Hospital Boat, 30.11.15.--The doc tor thought I was on the verge of a pretty bad breakdown,, and sent me right away. From the time I set foot on the boat I started to improve. A great storm sprang up just after tlhe boat started, and we had to put in at Emubros island (a few miles from Gallipoli) for two days. You cannot realise what this boat is like after three months of dreary, dirty, fighting on Gallipoli. I should think it is the nearest ap proach to Heaven a human is likely to get to on earth (or shoukld I say water.) - I came aboard six days ago,- scarcely caring whether Ilived or died. Dirty, eaten alive with lice, and feeling' absolutely broken up in every way. I was led down to the ward 'with its little double-. decker cots, spotlessly clean, with snow white sheets. I had a hot bath -the first of any kind for close on 'three months, most of which was spent underground like a ...

- THE EMPIRE'S CALL. The Geelong correspoindent of the "Argus" says that amongst those who volunteered for- active service at Geolong recruiting depot on. Tues day was Mr. A. T. Ozanne, M.H.R. for Corio. He passed the medical test, but he will not be attested for a month, to enable him to arrange his private affairs.

The war is coming step by step nearer and nearer- to our shores. Hitherto, by the blessing of God, and by the might of the British Navy, we -have been wholly spared the frightful horrors of war; but the position is one which 'must give every man who loves his .country= pause. We are arrayed against the greatest military nation the world has ever seen-a nation which; if it succeeds, will, as surely as night follows day, utt...
