TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 August 1915
TURF TOPICS. I With tho jumping season practicallj onded, attention will now be turned in earnest to spriug events. The "timber toppers" nave had their innings aud will now l.-ave to take second place ju tiio minds of turf folk. All things taken into account;, the jumping cam paign 'las been successful and there is no reason io think that the cross-coun try game is waning in popularity. The chief events of the Carnival attracted good fields aud keen competition, and the public patronised the different meetings very liberally. In regard to racing in the immediate future, there is no use in endeavoring to hide the fact that the indications point to a slump, but even so, there is no reason io despair yet. The signs are that we will at least pull through the .-i.Tiiijjj meetings all right-.' The at tendances cannot of course, be expec ted to keep up their average, but the falling oft' should not ho a very serious matter.

NEWS FROM THE FRONT. AN INTERESTING LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 August 1915
NEWS FROM THE FRONT. AN INTERESTING LETTER. We take the following extracts from a letter received by Mrs Frank Chester from ber brother, Signaller J. p. Campbell, now at the Dardanelles: Wombat Pimple, Dug-out-ville (by the sea), 3/6/15. In the trenches each has to do hia own cooking. Food is in abundance, and good, and the absence of camp drills, inspections, and frill makes the present stage of affairs quite pleasant. Cheese and bacon every day is on the menu, also tea and sugar, tinned meat, also desicated potatoes- sometimes the, real article-and desicated vegetables and now and then onions. Biscuits always, some hard enough to satisfy j the work of any dentist. Soaked for ' quarter of an hour and fried in fat the [ biscuits are A1 ? or crushel, soaked and steamed, with jam (issued dailv) they are A1 2. The want of utensils j is a drawback at first, but soon there are empty tins to make vessels of, and to be sure, the case boards are ea^erlv sought for to kindle fires with. My f...

THRIFT OR PANIC. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 19 August 1915
THRIFT OR PANIC. Thrift to-day or panic to morrow is the alternative which the people ct Australia have to face. What finan cial panic means the middle aged Vic torian knows, yet it is well that Sir Wm. Irvine and other veterans are telling the young some home truths, and reminding the older of facts muny of them would perhaps fain forget. Last week Mr E. E. Keep, President of the Employers' Federation, reminded us that during the past five years the Commonwealth expenditure had gone up from £1 4s Sd to £3 8s 5d a head, and the Victorian State expenditure from £6 14s 4d to £8 per head. That last increase i'B absolutely without excuse, for the Federal authority, .whatever its shortcomings, has relieved the State of certain items of expendi ture. But, behind the figurep, more important than they, is the fact stressed by Sir Win. Irvine that the politicians will muke no strenuous effort to stay prodigality, unless they are sure that the people are behind them. The explanation is simple...

HOW FAR CAN WE SEE? [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 August 1915
HOW FAR CAN WE SEE? Experiments made in the German Army show tliat the average soldier can recognise an intimate friend at 500 feet, an acquaintance at 300 feet, a person whom the soldier had seen only once before at SO feet. An expert rifle man can distinguish the parts of a man's body and any decided movement at 300 feet. A man seems but a spot on the landscape, at 1,800 feet, and, as a rule, he cannot be seen if he keeps still or if his dress does not contrast with the background.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 August 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Iiustiou*.") The fact that; except oil the Eastern front, the war is mainly conducted in tienches, and that cavalry have been mad© use of as infantry, has lessened the demand for light horses consider ably beyond what was expected. For instance, practically all the Australian horses are idle in Egypt. There has been some anxiety in the United States on account of the large sales to Eur ope, as a result of the war demand, and a. report on the position of affairs has been issued by the Bureau of Aiiiuiui Industry at Washington. From Sep tember to December inclusive, it ap pears, 75,000 horses were exported ti> Europe frojii the United States, and many thousands more bad been bought by representatives of the belligerant na tion*.
