THE YARDSTICK AND THE GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

THE YARDSTICK AND THE GUN. Three-fifths of the shops of Paris are closed.—Times cable. The de serted condition of the city is probably ; due to a general paralysis o£ trade and a dearth of labor owing to the cull ing out of the French Army reserves. 1 There's silence on the Boulevards, the I streets we wander through, That were merry with the chatter of grisettes, Deserve, in French and English both, the common name of Rue, And the air is full of whispering regrets. Where Alphonse spread his muslins with a little extra swank When a saucy shadow fell across the floor, There's nothing now to meet the eye but shutters bare and blank, For the Paris counter-jumpers are at war. The bud from Henri's buttonhole that sweet Denise has kept Has been cherished and been water ed by the tears That for her absent soldier-boy the lonely lassie wept, And the days since his departure lag like years. Lizette has lost her merry smile since Louis went away, And, though her heart is filled with sorrow so...

HOW WIRELESS RECOVERED £20 A Post-Office Clerk's Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

HOW WIRELESS RECOVERED £20 A Post-Office Clerk's Experience. A few minutes before eight on a re cent Saturday night a stranger called at Londonderry Post Office and asked for gold for four £5 Banlc of Ireland notes. He explained that he was just leaving for Canada, a tender at the quay, close to the post-office, being timed to start at eight for the liner, which was lying at the mouth of the Lough Foyle. The post-office clerk courteously took the notes, and handed in exchange four little piles of gold which were in front of him. "Without counting the money the stranger emp tied it into the pouch of his emigrant's belt, which he thereupon strapped around his waist and departed. An hour later, when he came to bal ance up for the night, the post-office clerk discovered his cash to be £20 short. No amount of checking'made any difference; the figures would not come right. Later on in the night lie sought the help of a senior official. Together they worked at the problem until three on Su...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. ;■ It was a flue story and a pathetic story of the Imperialist charwoman, who would not talce her money out of the Government Savings Bank lest it should be wanted to pay lor helping England. And, anyhow, she did not think that she would lose it. So there's an example lor all to follow. But there is another phase of the question, which does not occur, of course, to the orator - who soared peroratoricaiiy above the old lady's good deed. Yet it is none the less potent in its influence upon the pub lic mind, and the . Awful Example chanced to be in Sydney last week. An unpatriotic lady, also of the char woman persuasion, liad £60 in the Uovernment Savings Bank, and she would not listen to any argument aOout trusting to all the resources ox the State or the Commonwealth. "Re sources is all very well," she said, "but sovereigns in a sock is better." So she went and got tbe gold. She clutched her little hag with a trium phant air as she came down the steps. A man bes...

Correspondence. SCOUT TRAINING. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

Correspondence. SCOUT TRAINING. To the Editor. Sir,—One of the principles of scout training is the upholding of one's honour. We scouts cannot help ad miring the manner in which the gal lant Belgians have stood to this prin ciple with regard to their neutrality. The boys have asked me if the amounts collected by us could not be devoted to the Belgian Relief Fund, and I have decided that it will be so, and whereas I originally intended that the Gippsland Boy Scout Fund should be confined to the scouts themselves, I now appeal to the gen eral public to contribute to the relief of the people of that gallant little country which has suffered so much devastation and must be crippled for bo many years to come. Hoping that this will meet with your approval, and that you will receive and ack nowledge anv further contributions that may be forwarded to you, -I am, etc., H. H. VAIL, District Commissioner. Gippsland Boy Scout Patriotic Fund, to be devoted to the Belgium Relief Fund. The followi...

HOW GERMANS LIVE. THRIFT EVERYWHERE APPARENT. SMALL WAGES FOR GOVERNMENT SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

HOW GERMANS LIVE. THRIFT EVERYWHERE APPARENT. SMALL WAGES FOR GOVERNMENT SERVANTS. "After the Swiss, the Germans are probably the thriftiest people in Eu rope," declares the Berlin correspond ent of the Chicago "Tribune." "They are tremendous believers in savings banks. "Thrift is manifest on every hand in the Kaiser's land, though the Gov ernment and the State seem to be thriftier than the people at large. Government employes get ridiculous ly small pay. I was shown over one of the Emperor's castles by an old guide who had been on duty for 23 years, and was still happy on a sal ary of £5 a month. "Policemen, postmen, railway em ployes, and all the other servants of the State are paid on a basis corres pondingly meagre, judged by British standards. A German bank manager, with a gross income of £400 a year— £200 salary and £200 commissions on business he. secures—is considered well paid. "Rents are cheaper than with us, and servants much cheaper. Here abouts it is the man of the hous...

PATRIOTISM. | ENTHUSIASTIC PROCEEDINGS. Historic Trafalgar plays its Part A patriotic demonstration^ which the proceeding evoked the utmost enthusiasm, was held in Trafalgar on Monday evening last. Despite the cheerless aspect of the weather, the spacious hall was well' filled, the at tendance showing that this district is not lacking in loyalty at the call of the Empire. Dr Marsden presided, and express ed great pleasure at seeing such a large attendance. He explained the purpose for which they were assem bled and said he felt sure they would readily fall in with any suggestion placed before them. (Applause.) The Rev. Mr Blanchard was the first speaker, and explained how the British Empire was up against a par ticularly tough proposition. There was an inclination in our country to take matters lightly, but it was a mistake. They were all British sub jects with one common interest at fitake. (Applause.) He was sorry the chairman had not asked the Kaiser to be present at the meet ing...

THE KAISER AND THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

THE KAISER AND THE WAR By Del McCay in "Table Talk." Italy will not join Germany. Nor way, Sweden and Denmark are deter mined to defend their neutrality de spite German threats. Holland has joined those in arms against Ger many. This people high in will and strength and heart, The friendship of. the world might yet maintain, But they from every friend have drawn apart; Fraternal hands .are stretched to them in vain, Since they would rule, not only in the mart, But one great world-wide Empire build again. J The madness that has seized them j . had its start In that cracked Kaiser's glory-seeth ing brain. Now all the world in fratricidal strife Is plunged, and cannon boom across the sea; Our. rulers are the bullet and the knife, And Red War wins his dreadful vic tory. What recks the Kaiser of this spilt out life, Who brags of "Allemachtig Gott undt Me"? The shuddering world, with ghastly horrors rife, Groans under trampling feet of such as he. i All men stare wildly at this dripping K...

A WRONG IMPRESSION. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

A WRONG IMPRESSION. (To the Editor). Sir,—Will you kindly give me space to correct a wrong impression that seems to have got about regard ing a remark of mine at the Patriotic meeting on Monday night last. In connection with the suggestion that has been made that some suppli ers to the factory would like a small deduction made from their milk and cream cheques each fortnight and sent to the war fund, 1 have been in formed that I gave the impression that the amount given and the amount of the cheque from which it was deducted should be made public. Such an idea is absolutely wrong, and I never had the slightest inten tion ot conveying such an impression at all. Whatever knowledge I may have of any man's income from the factory, is to me. absolutely sacred, and not the slightest disclosure has ever been, nor ever will be, made by me, and most certainly no deduction would be made unless authorised by the supplier himself. As I was speaking under consider able emotion I probably express...

A REASSURING STATEMENT In announcing on Wednesday his in tention to return to Western Australia on August 26, the Federal Treasurer (Sir John Forrest) made, a reassuring statement about the financial ques tions which have arisen through the outbreak of war. "By that time," he said, "all arrange ments of the Federal Treasury will be completed for making such advances as may be necessary to the State Gov ernments, so as to ensure that those works and railways paid for from loan funds will not be stopped, and that the labor market in regard to them will not be unduly disturbed. The London money markethas much improved during the past few days. Exchange business is being resumed, and if it continues the financial houses will be able to give the facilities which will result in all exporting companies and houses being able to continue their businesses as heretofore."

THE COMBATANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

THE COMBATANTS. By Adam M'Cay in the Sydney "Sun." " We both are gaining glory," said the Kaiser to the Czar; And Mr. Romanoff replied, "I truly think we are." "Weeks since I had a decent sleep," the yawning Kaiser said; "I think I'd give a hundred pound for seven hours in bed. Gee, but I'm tired; I've never been one-half so tired before! But, never mind, I shan't complain; for, after all, war's war." "That's so," the Czar responded; "you and I must recollect That by-and-bye we'll find our brows with crowns of laurel decked. We're putting up the biggest fight the world has ever known; As lords of war and kings of gore jve stand upon our own!" "There's been no king in Germany," the Kaiser said anew, "To sacrifice himself like me to see his country through! From every little Prussian town, from all the Saxon thorps, I've lost a healthy German, and I've only got his corpse. In cities where the trafHc clanged only the war-drum beats; The girls who used to walk the shops to-day must walk...
