NOTABLE TOASTS. "THE KING!, GOD BLESS HIM!" [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 12 July 1918
NOTABLE TOASTS. "THE KING I, GOD BLESS HIM i" Next to. the toast of the "King'", which is drunk every night in mllt ary and naval oficars mesa, prol'ably -the most taceted mrn in the world is Robert Burne, the poet. There are B urns' clubs in every nook and corn er of the world, and Scots keep them up even ca the battlefield, and when e'.er they 1 forgather "the immortal memory" is toasted. One of the quaintest toasts is the bne and only of the Two Pins Club. The name of the club, whi'h is an equestrian one,, is derived from Tur-, pin and Gilpin, and the only toaet permitted is to "Turpin's daring and Gilpin's respectability." The Mayor and Corporation of Ply mouth drink to the memory of Sir rFrancte Drake every year, not heca:se 11be bat the Armada, and was the frst Englishman to rail round the globe but because he first brought water to the old borough. This is the ancint and solemn toast : "May the desecen dants of him who beought water uot er want wina." A rather arn:-NI.in tono...
ARMY'S GUN DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 12 July 1918
ARMY'S GUN DOCTOR. The guns Britain is using in France last much longer than one hai a rL.ht to. expect, and pieces whom normal life might be calculated at 6,000. or 7,P00 rounds firo 13,000 or 14.000 with out the loas of accuracy. Besides the guns themselves, how ever, enormous credit is due to the gunners, as well as to the character of the ammunlt!on and to the people who make it at home. By no means the. least Important factor of thi work of what are known as the mob ile ordnance workrhops, being hospit- ala for sick guns, which, Ilto dressing stations for human casualties, are euer pushing up behind our lines. The establishment and machinery for handling and repairing big guns are unavoidably cumbersome, with the great cranes, dynamos, lathes, plan ers, and other heavy machinery tools which are needed, but one of these shops rushes up into new waste coun try where the whole area of the shop has to be paved or floored before a lorry or a gun can be moved in it.

NOVEL BED. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 12 July 1918
NOVEL BED. ( One'of the latest of the surgenn'n !ceane mt endosvoumr to enlighten the suiforings of.our ominded men is to ,o ifound in a military ward at St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington. It is a Osecial bed for the paralysed. , One of the great problema in cort ain cases of spinal. wounds is how to 1move the patient sufficiently to make his bed without increasing his suffer lugs by moving him. The new bed solves the problem. Surrounding the bed, just at the edge of the mattress ti a rectangular framework of hollow metal piping. Connecting the two parallel sides are broad bnrde. of webbing ntretched across on top of the mattrees, and on these the patient lies. The two short eides of the frame-work, the ona at the head andthoe' other at the foot, are connected by a geared wheel with a vertical steel post, so that by the turning of a handle at the heed of the bed the framework with patient ly ing on the webbing can be lifted, oil the mat'rcea without his position be. ing changed in the...
POLITE WILD BEASTS. RHINO DRINKS FIRST THEN THE ELEPHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 12 July 1918
POLITE WILD BEASTS.. RHINO DRINKS FIRST THEN THI1: ELEPHANT.. Kipling's idea of a law of the jun- gle which is strictly obeyed is not . nearly aw fantastic as .it might be thourht In fact,. recent investigations:. assisted irrnmensely by the camera,. and sepecially the cinema, go to con tend that the novelist was right. For instance, it is an old idea that: the lion and tiger took advantage to-. place upon all animals the necessity to drink, lying in wait at the water holes for such defencelees creatures as-. tlse antelope and gira"es. Yet such an idea is a libel on the lion and a travesty of the tiger's character. There is a standing armistice or truce of the drinking place. Even a. lion will not take a defencelecs fawn at a disadvantage. He will hunt fair; The water-hole is neutral ground, and it qerne to be ll ouadrl:etoed fhnt I ;vhtle there- the peace mus t be kept. But there is order of preced- ence in the forest as there is in the farm. Have you ever seen cowd going into the ...
HURSTBRIDGE HALL COMMITTEE. Report of Hall Committee from July 4th, 1917, to July 1st, 1918. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 12 July 1918
HU.RSTIT?ID E HALL OOMMITTEE, Report of H.-II Onmtittte from July 4th, 1917, it, July 1st, 1918.

As there had been a lot of dissatisfacitn axpressedt over bIck fetnces and in inumtner.blo enteries of the auid residents, those present quite erxected a brilliant displly of eattiical and outnte plttimntltury langqage, but happily were disuppninted in that respect ; andt I think t Io uld ctonmitiee were also. The balaltce'..heet revealed no irregularitien, and it was plainly ovident that none of tile committe' had made fortunes out of handling the public institution, and there was nothing more alartmitt than a very small ovrdraft of £4 Is 101 in evi dence.

Dear Sir,--l your advertising columns of June 28th. there appeared an advertise eOIttt signed .by several local bakers, noti fying the public that on and titer the 1st July tthe price of the 41b (?) lota will be raised to 8d. During the last tontli, being buspicious that the bread purchased by me from a certain biker dil uot contain the proper weight, I made up my mind to teat the coeclusion arrived at re short weight. Durtug the time mentloned above not one single loaf of Ureatd conltaled the reqlired weight according to the Werlbts and .Measures Act. iMost of the 2b (2) loaves were 2 oz short, sind one 411, t?) loaf was 4. oz short.

Now that the brdul has heen raised to 8d per 4ib loaf, and all other necessaries of life are, attd have been for sotm...
