Violet Town Sentinel Published Every Tuesday Morning TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 1915. THE MEAT FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

Violet COUMI Sentinel Published Every Tuesday Morning TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 1915. THE MEA.T FAMINE. FOLLOWING on the extraordinary rise in the rates for meat, the local butchers have announced the conditions on which alone they will bo able to supply custo mers until the market recedes from its present inflated standard, which has had no equal since the days of the diggings, The butchers cannot reasonably bo ex pected to extend the conveniences that hitherto have been in vogue now that beef and mutton have gone "sky-high," nor is there much likelihood of any change until steps have been taken to regulate the Bupply to the demand. After making all due allowance for the great scarcity of fat stock brought about bv the drought, and for the additional factor that, large quantities of tinned meat have been sent to England for the use of the soldiers, there is certainly fair ground for presuming that priceB have been to some extent artificially in flated by holders of cold stored meat. The Gov...

THE GIRL IN THE TRAIN. AND THE OLD MAN WHO LOST NO TIME. REMARKABLE AFFAIR IN THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

AND THE OLD MAN WHO LOST NO TIME. REMARKABLE AFFAIR IN THE WEST, What may happen, to a shy, inno cent, unsophisticated young girl of 19 years of age when, she travels a few miles in a railway carriage with a wily, artful, . engaging young man of 70 summers was exemplified at the last sittings of the Perth Supreme Court, when Alma Victoria Kathleen Thomas, 19 years, sued for separation and maintenance from her husband, who admits having reached three score and ten. The hearing was remarkable for many things, but chiefly for the rapid ity with which the little nineteen-year old nurse mated up with the gay old josser from whom she sought sepa ration within a little under three months. According to the petitioner, she left Perth by train for Bunbury on January 26 last. Thomas, a stran ger to lier, was also on the rattler, and spoke to her. He told her of the money and property he possessed, and as they reached Armadale he asked the girl to marry him. Armadale, according to the official ...

ABSINTHE DRINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

ABSINTHE DRINKING. Following the example o£ Russia in forbidding the sale of vodka, the French Government recently placed a ban on absinthe, the deadly drink which America abolished some years ago. This innocent-looking emerald green liquid has for years been the favorite beverage amongst the no torious French Apaches, and it has sent many o£ them to the mad-house. Absinthe has terrible effects on those who abuse it. When taken in excess it utterly deranges the digestive sys tem, and the victim loses all desire for food in his craving for the drink. It induces horrible dreams and hallucina tions, and the unfortunate slave of absinthe develops muscular quiver ings, his hair drops off, and his face becomes emaciated, wrinkled and sal low. His end is paralysis or idiocy. The correct manner to drink absin the is to rest a silver rack on the edge of the glass, on which is placed a knob of sugar, through which water is trickled to the spirit below. The use of the drink has been prohibited...

COUNTERFEIT COINS. THREEPENNY BITS OF WHITE-METAL. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

COUNTERFEIT COINS. THREEPENNY BITS OF WHITE METAL. The Commonwealth Treasury offi cials have discovered the work of the meanest counterfeiter on earth. This is a threepenny piece made of white metal, and apparently lighter than an ordinary coin of the same value. The counterfeit threepenny pieces can he bent double; and in the process of producing the coin the maker has had occasion to apply the die twice, as the Inscription is blurred on both sides. Mr. Collins, the Assistant-Secretary I of the Treasury, says the officers of, the department received a shock when the coin, which had been given to a tram conductor as a fare, was passed oh to them. The matter has been placed in the hmids of the police. Whenever you commend, add your reasons for doing eo; it is this which distinguishes the approbation of a man of sense from the flattery of sy cophants and admiration of fools.

HIGH-KICKING GOOSE-STEP [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

HIGH-KICKING GOOSE-STEP Pictures of tne German army have been shown in Melbourne theatres re cently, and the audiences have been greatly amused by the one thing in particular that dis tinguishes the German army from all others; it is the goose-step the ceremonious "high-kicking" step so impressively employed by the German regiments in marching past king or Kaiser or other potentate. The goose-step is accomplished by keeping the knee stiff and by lifting the leg in a kind of kick as high as possible. To see great lines of in fantry employing the goose-step, to see them, with erect body and drawn-in stomach and toe pointed outward at the same angle, lift each leg high and stiff, then bring it thunderously down upon the ground-well, that is a strik ing spectacle. The goose-step, furthermore, is a fine exercise. Military critics declare that a half-hour of it will strengthen the muscles of the leg and abdomen as much as a full day's marching. On this account, since the war's outbreak ha...

CUP WINNERS' FEED. BEST HORSES SAID TO COME OFF LUCERNE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

CUP WINNERS' FEED. 3EST HORSES SAID TO COME OFF LUCERNE COUNTRY. When the world was a good deal younger, writes "Milroy" In Sydney 'Mall," I owned a racehorse, whom I gave to a back-country expert to train. This trainer had been through not a tew big establishments, and was re cognised as a man who knew his bus ill ess by such authorities as John Tait^and William Forrester; but an inordinate desire {or rum in the strongest form drove him far from the coast back into the intorior. He could always manage to keep fairly sober till race day. The horse he trained for me was a delicate feeder. A horse will invariably eat lucerne when he will, not look at anything else. One bright day I happened upon a bale <if choice Mudgee lucerne, which, I linay add, came from Orange, then the head of the. western line, by \vagg9ii,. a distance o£-300 miles. This small bale weighed 1201b., and cost £2 cash. But the trainer would not look at it. He' went crar.v at tlie thought of giving a race...

END OF THE KAISER. CORONER RETURNS VERDICT OF WILFUL MURDER AGAINST HIM. WILL HE BE HANGED? [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

END OF THE KAISER. CORONER RETURNS VERDICT OF WILFUL MURDER AGAINST HIM. WILL HE BE HANGED? Following on the tragedy of the 'Ijusitania, a veraict o£ wilful mur der now stands against the Kaiser in the Coroner's Court of tne United Kingdom. As a matter 01 legal ne cessity, a warrant should now issue for the arrest of Willielm Hohenzollern, formerly Colonel in the British Army and Admiral in the British Navv, should Wilhelm ever go to England, he will be instantly apprehended, and his trial will follow. Looming in the distance you can see the black cap. No suggestions have yet been heard that the British police should apply to police headquarters at Berlin for the extradition of the criminal. That may follow. In the near future the German police may be very glad to get rid of the dangerous homicide; unless they themselves prefer to hang him.

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, April 10, 1915. The Public Temper. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 1 June 1915

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, April 10, 1915. The Public Temper. The temper o£ the public during the past few days has been somewhat sombre. The wave of exaltation that followed the first news of the battle of Neuve Chapelle and of the pre liminary success in the Dardanelles, has been followed by a reaction. 1 find that people are dwelling more to day on the serious nature o£ the fight ing ahead of us, on the great need for reinforcements, and on the absolute necessity for further preparations. The very foolish folk who a month ago were talking publicly of peace in June have ceased their harmful forecasts. The present note of sombreness does not mean any lack of confidence in the ending of the war or determina tion to carry it through. It is partly due to the way in which the news of recent events has been doled out to the public. People feel that they have been rather played with over the story of Neuve Chapelle. They were allow ed to receive impressions about the possibi...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

It was dark at Fort Sliiva, and the lights burned in the colonel's quar ters. They showed but dimly, for the panes of the windows were roughed to prevent hostile Pathans from lob bing long-range bullets across the river and blowing out unsuspecting brains. The sentry at the main gate paced moodily up and down, think ing o£ many things. Then he check ed, and brought his rille up. "Who goes there?" A form had flitted out of the shadows, and a na tive was standing there. "No natives admitted after dark," said Trooper Scott. "Git out, nigger, jeldy." "I must see the colonel at once," said a clear English voice, and the soldier swore in amazement. The newcomer said something in a whis per, and the sentry, calling the ser geant of the quarter-guard, had the English-speaking native admitted at once. He went without hesitation to Colonel Lockhart's quarters, and was there admitted. "Well, what is it?" The colonel's voice was stern. "I bring news, sir. The tribes are intending a rush on. For...

A certain major bought a horse from a dealer, and shortly afterwards the following conversation wnS heard: - "Von have swindled me with that horse you sold me last week." "How so?" asked the- denier, very much snrp. 'sed. "Well, I only had him for three days when he died." "That's very strange.

On March 8 he wrote to Ms mother telling her that he dreamt that he was in a great battle, and dur ing a charge he was badly wounded. Finishing the letter he said, "If you don't hear from me on the 15th you'll know something has happened, but don't fret." On that date, March 15, a card arrived,at Selby to say that lie had been seriously wounded. A let ter was received later dictated by Westwood at an English hospital. He Iadded: "You would think something when I wrote telling you of my dream. At eight o'clock on the morning of the 10th we had a charge and captured three German trenches. We stopped a bit in the third one. On -going for the fourth trench I went flop with four bullets in the left leg, a broken thigh, three bullets in my left hand, and nine wounds altogether.

THE SON OF A GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

THE SON OP A GUN. "It's an 111 wind that blows" "Shut, up!" "It's a long lane that has no" "Cut it out!" "You can lead a horse to water, but" "Cheese it!" "What are you, for goodness sake?" "I'm a maxim silencer." A couple of Melbourne pressmen, a trifle generously inclined, paused in front of a man in Swanston-street with a "Please Assist the Blind" placard on him. One of the pressmen, who knew most of the city identities, did not recognise this one, and halted about 10ft. in front of him. "Here!" he called out, taking a six pence from his pocket. "Catch this!" And he threw it purposely a foot to one side. The alleged blind man evidently saw it coming, and, dexterously reaching out his hat, caught the coin. "What an impostor you are!" snap ped the scribe who had thrown the sixpence. "You're not blind at all." . "I know I'm not," he admitted. "I'm minding this pitch for the real owner." \ "Where is he?" asked the second "Gone to the pitchers!" said the un derstudy.
