WHO CARRIES THE FLAG OF FRANCE? [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 12 July 1918
WHO CARRIES THE FLAG OF FRANCE ? The voice of a nation replies, He that hath ears let him hear ! Let him that hath eyes look deep Into the steadfast eyes Of those who carry the Flag ! Men who carry it singing, fighting, endur- ing, dying ; Women who sow and reap, And tend the wounds of their men under the shadow of Fear, With never a pause to weep ; Children who smile in sleep — Yes ! And their fallen fathers, glorious Death-defying — All of them carry the Flag ! Honour the Flag of France ! Let none, for very shame, Refuse its silent claim ! &nbsp; Let each one give as he can, that ere the &nbsp; evening close Each may say to his heart : "To-day I have done my part To strengthen the hands of those Who carry the Flag of France." — A.S.H.W.

KOfNII,OFP'S MAXIM. Whatever mar be said or thought of IKornlloff, there is no doubt that ha Is brilliantly clever. He might be termed a self-made man. At the ago of thirteen he was tending sheep on the Steppes; to-day, at torty~seveon, he has at his finger-ends, the literat ure of fifteen countries and all manner of military lore. At one period of his meteoric career he combined the two ill-matched pur auitt of scaence and spying.

On onn ocncason he nsld : "I am a fighting general ancuatomed to act and not to talk. In Potrograi mopt of hhe time is fpent in talking. and ar~lllua."
PALACES GOING BEGGING. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 July 1918
PALACES GOING BEGGING. Would you care to purchase a cms tle, drawbridge and ghoat included, for the small sum of two thousand pounds ? This was the market value of the famous residence of Henry VIII at Kingsbury,, which recently came under the hammer, and which is now the property of a local dealer. Many places have figured recently in. the property sales, and some have been acquired at an absurdly low figure. The owner of four houses in Suburbia may reckon his posesiossos as equalling in monetary value an ancient seat of the mighty. Fringed by the banks of the river Thames stands Linsey Palace, in Cheyne Walk-not of large dimensions but notable . as the home of both Stuart and Hanoverian rulers. A cur rent advertisement tells us that this delightful residence may be acquired by an immediate purchaser at a very reasonahle figure.' Windsor Castle is not for the poor man, but a Chicago millionaire may reasonably be ex;.'c ted to, purchase it" for a few milli,.,e- ,r so that would' be ...
PALACES ON WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 July 1918
PALACES ON WHEELS. Now that Nicholas has been do throned, it is to be presamed that in future his special train, with its real flRuelan bath, kitchens, a chapel, and all the comforts of a palace, will be at the disposal of the future president of Russia. Possibly they may think it too regal, as the French did of the one that was left by their last mron arch. The train now in use by the Preet dents of the French Republic was built in a hurry, in thirteen days to be exact, for the purpose of carrying to France the Tsar of Russia-a visit that cemented the alliance between France and Russia. So hastily was the private personal car built that not until the tenth day did it occur to anyone that the Tsar might wish to take a bath. So the roof of the car was promptly cut; open and a space made large enough to allow the lowering of a huge silver bath tub into a corner of the car. The tub is there anhtr all these years, and do is the patch on the car roof. That car has carried at some time ne...
