SIDELIGHTS ON THE WAR A GERMAN FABRICATION FACTORY. The very capable Melbourne journal ist who was sent to London to act as special representative of the Sydney "Sun" is now forwarding some parti cularly interesting letters to that journal. A full budget received this week covers a whole page, and we acknowledge the following extracts: Sunday, August 16. "*' "War is Hell," Sherman said as he went Bouth to suppress slavery. War is the hell of barbaric savagery,,of fury and madness, of battle and slaughter. Awful and appalling rumors have frozen our hearts to-day. The Black Watch was wiped out in the sortie from Lrege; the Enniskillens . were decimated. .The bleeding survivors of the Black Watch are in Chatham Hos pital and of the Enniskillens in Birm ingham. The Iron Duke has been sunk by a mine in the North Sea, and Admiral Sir John Jellicoe has sunk with his flagship. These stories, told with utmost circumstances, blanched most cheeks.

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S' EXTRACT. LAW RELATING TO NEWSPAPERS. 1. Subscribers who do not give express notice to the contrary...

STEAMING THROUGH THE DARK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
STEAMING THROUGH THE . DARK. By "Seebee" in Adelaide "Mail." Several exciting accounts have been given of the experiences of various mail and. cargo. steamers hurrying across the ocean showing no lights, with the object of evading the enemy's cruisers bent upon commerce destroy ing expeditions. Lest foes should see us in the night and stop us in our track, We hasten down the routes of trade like some great spectre black. The bright electrics' telltale glare each porthole curtain bars, And masthead lights 110 longer blaze to mimic friendly stars. No sidelights red or green we show •to warn the passing sail. And thougfi a hull comes looming by we do not stop to hail. For we who bear a precious freight .must travel through the dark, To offer raiding cruisers' guns no hope of any mark. ; So threshed milk-white across our wake the sped miles lie astern, The log bell tinkles as they pass, the swift propellers' turn; And. as our bows push through the deep towards the ocean's rim, We lift a...
THE BELLS OF MALINES. DESTROYED BY GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914
i THE BELLS OF MALINES. DESTROYED BY GERMANS. It was announced recently that the peal of bells in the cathedral of St. Rombart in Malines had been de stroyed by the Germans. These fam ous carillion peals comprise as many as forty or fifty bells. Every quarter of an hour they play for half a min ute, not the ordinary peals as we know them, but some phrase of music with full harmonies, four or five bells sometimes being struck together in the same chord. At the hour the chimes will sometimes play for five minutes, perhaps a snatch from some well-known opera or oratorio. These peals can be played from a keyboard like a piano, but the ordinary hourly chimes are of course regulated by clockwork. Of the towns that have fljready come into this war, Ghent, , Louvain, Antwerp and Malines, all have famous chimes, and Tournai pos sesses another. But of all the chimes in the world the most exquisite are those of Bruges and of Malines. To sip one's coffee under an awning in the old cobbled marke...

It is of the greatest importance that our new- levies should be under canvas with all conceivable celerity.
