KORONG VALE NEWS The Wheat Grab [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916
KORONG VALE NEWS The Wheat Grab At the Council meeting on Thursday Cr Kelly voiced the in dignation of the fanners in reduc ing the home price of wheat beneath the market standard. He claimed that the farmer had been singled out for the benefit of a class from which the Labor party derived its support. It was the cost of all labor that made things dear and it was being made higher while the fanners' earnings -were being brought down. The reduction was in effect a class tax imposed for the benefit of a class ; it was also a breach of implied contract with the farmers. Cr O'Brien said no re duction should have been made without consulting the farmers. The government promised them the London parity, and as the scheme was a co-operative one the government being the custodian had a right to return the lull value. Cr Gray supported, saying that the Commission had no moral right to dispose of one bushel under the market price without consulting the growers. He counselled moder ation, howev...

Afraid to Eat. Wealthy Dyspeptic Dies of Starvation. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916
Afraid to Eat. Wealthy Dyspeptic Dfas of Starvation. An inquest was recently held upon a wealthy man who had died af starvation. Me was a victim of digestive trouble and afraid to cat because of the pain which always followed. This tragic proof of the folly of dieting should serve as a warning to those of our readers who experience pain and unpleasant ness after eating. It should be re membered that indigestion,dyspepsia, .heartburn, flatulence, and wind are usually but symptoms of excessive acidity and food fermentation. The acid retards digestion, turns the food sour and causes fermentation and wind. Obviously, therefore, it js acidity which is the root cause of practically all forms of digestive and stomach trouble, and that is why physicians advise sufferers to take bisurated magnesia, after meals. Bisurated magnesia is not a drug or medicine but an antacid and food corrective which can be obtained from high-class ' chemists every where. Half a teaspoonful taken in a little writ...

Our War. WE MUST RELY ON OURSELVES. By H. Hamilton Fyfe, Specinl Corre spondent in Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916
Our War. WE MUST RELY ON OURSELVES. By H. Hamilton Fyfe, Specinl C'orro* spondeut in Ilussia. After fifteen months spent in Russia I expected to come back to a changed England. And, in many ways, it is a changed England upon which, during a vory short visit, I look with almost strangor's eyes. Khaki alone would stamp It as different . . . khaki, the symbol of British manhood's magnifi cent uprising .... a symbol that makes ono value one's citizenship with grateful pride. Many other aspects of life, fresh to me but familiar enough to you, bear witness to changes. What Bri tain has done here at home, how Bri tons have sprung forward at her call from all corners of the Empire, how private folk everywhero have given their money and their toil to aid in countloss ways—these are matters of which the thought lies too deep for facile speech. Yet in one very im portant aspect there is, 1 think, little change. Wo are as certain as ever; that wo shall beat tho Germans soundly. We are as determ...

with which is incorporated the Boort Standard, KoronjVale Lance, and Quam J batook Herald. I" Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, Maich 9. COMING OF CONSCRIPTION. Never was Australia more deter mined than to-day to fight on till German militarism is crushed. When war was declared, the most ardent of those who were so situated that they could yield prompt obedi ence to a generous impulse, enlisted. From time to time, as the way opened, others fired by the same spirit followed their example. Gradually, however, a sense of un easiness took possession of the pub lic mind. A great war has shattered many of the delusions we hugged during a long peace. Faith in the voluntary system has passed ; Great Britain has abandoned it, Australia has to determine its attitude in rela tion to it. Two questions have to be answered. One, can wc raise the promised army of 300,000 men by June without conscription ? second, is the present method of raising forces just. ? T...
Ballad of the Huns. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916
Ballad of the Huns. In Wetteren Hospital, Flanders, the writer saw a little peasant girl dying from the bayonet wounds in her back which the Hun 6oldiers had given her. Cain slow only a brother, A lad who was fair and strong, His murder was careless and honest. A heated and sudden wrong. And Judas was kindly and pleasant. For he snared an invincible man. But you—you have spitted the chil dren, As they toddled and stumbled and ran. She heard you sing on the high road, She thought you wero gallant and gay; Such men as the peasants of Flan ders: The friends of a child at play. She saw tho sun on your helmets, The sparkle of glancing light; She saw your bayonets flashing, And she laughed at your Prussian might Then you gave her death for her laughter. As you looked on her mischievous face. You hated the tiny peasant, With the hate, of your famous race. You were not frenzied and angry; You wero cold and efficient and keen. Your thrust was as thorough and deadly As the stroke of a faithfu...
IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916
IMAGINATION. It was at Christmas-tido we met, (All, I remember well our meeting)* And slie, though slio was mamma's pet, Was also what you'd call a sweet ing. We danced together twice or thrice; 1 found my dancing did not bore her; I knew she thought me rather nice, And I was plainly her adorer. In the soft radiance of her smile There' was a sort of golden glory; We in ft corner talked awhile, Then sought the dim conservatory. "I see no mistletoe," 1 said, Within my eyes rapt adoration; She murmured, aa slio raised her head, "Trav, where is your imagination?" —Clinton Scollnrd, in "Life." First Passenger; They say the next war will be between the two great yel low races. Second Passengers: Yellow races? First Passenger: Yes; Japan and j the United States.
From Various Sources. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916
From Various Sources. Under the heading of "Swedish prophecy" there has been printed a cable message saying that it is ru mored in Swedish shipping circles that tho German Navy will conic out and light before March 22. Since evory coucoivablo kind ,of prophecy is practised dally by tho majority of tho population concerning the war, thero seems to be no adequate reason why n little Swedish should not be mixed with It. Scottish prophecy seems to grow more optimistic with every look into tho glass. Carlton prophecy ga7.es hopefully across the foam, and after each gaze the outlook seems brighter. Guinness's Dublin prophecy .braces up the heart to bear present misfortunes and encourages it to expect early victories. French prophecies—particularly those utter ed by the great seer Goulet in 1904— Induce a positively roseate tinge in your contemplations. The Italian pro phecies promulgated from Vermouth create a deep-seated conviction of ul timate success. If you top up with a littlo Swedis...
