A False Alarm. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 26 March 1915
A False Alarm. Last Sunday afternoon while the scholars at the local two-up school were busily engaged in inter esting financial problems, their studies were rudely brought to a termination by the arrival of the police, or, to be correct, the approach of the police, for it is part of the ed ucation of a two-up scholar not to have anything to do with the police while financial questions are being unravelled. The policeman in ques tion was espied on a bicycle and soon the scholars were flying in all directions. Apparently the police officer had other business in view, still the people in the vicinity must have thought it strange to witness the stampede.

By the Way ?\ . (By Allofa Twist). Anti-Vaccination. An anti - vaccination movement, ^jj with its headquarters at Kurd, has J» extended its operations into Cess- |B nock, and it is more than likely it |l will engender and receive much sym* jR pathy locally. The object of the ''Jm movement is to instigate a hostility fS against compulsory vaccination, 'or S the chances of 6Uch, and anti-vaccin- '« otioh literature is the means em- 9 ployed.

Why the Germans are Called Huns. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 26 March 1915
Why the Germans are Called Huns. It is a mistake to say the Germans are IIuds by decent. The Germans are no more Huns than other Euro pean races. The Huns were of Asi atic origin. The Huns were very dark, so dark they were called black when 50,000 families invaded Bussiav From time, to time they increased, until they 'became the terror of Cen tral and Southern Europe. . Under Attilla they laid' the whole country in waste, and ev.en the Bomans Were glad to buy them off. The Germans however, in the present war have adopted much of the Huns' style of warfare, and that is why they are called Huns by the Allies. The Huns destroyed everything behind them ; they murdered, pillaged, and burned, and their track was- always one of waste and desolation. Strange as it may seem, the Huns invaded even Germany, aud heat them in many engagements. In fact, the German survivors, after hiding in forests and swamps, toad to appeal to .-neighbouring states to stay the /rout. But eventually the Germans, ...

1 . f . ? A Rnssian Victory. There was great rejoicing wjien the ntiws was circuluted that Przem ysl had fallen to the Russians. The garrison of the fallen town num bered 25,000 when surrendered, but in September last it was 80,000, which gives an idea of the sacrifice of life. It is stated that the Austrians sacrificed a hundred thousand men in their efforts to relieve Przemysl. The garrison of the town suffered terribly. The supply of meat failed and even the' horses had been .killed for food'. Disease is rampant and typhoid is prevalent.
