YOUR COUNTRY'S CALL. By an Australian Mother, Shirley, Queensland, on sending lier boy of 19 into trail! jig {or the Great War. That prize you wrung from life, with pain and tears. Mother, your country claims. It is not yours. Be silent. Yes, I know you bartered health, All maiden's vanity, all women's wealth, Wove in one strand each asset you have won, Laid at the feet of God, and brought your son. Deeming yourself made rich. To build him fair, Then toiled and anguished, Belflsh, in his care, Joyed in your sacrifice, that he might grow. That thing of pride, your son. Now he must go. With all those hopes, that help to make his worth, Crowned with your highest self, he must go forth. > Where? Why? Don't think. Just smother up the pain. Give him up quickly, for his country's gain. Give, give those strong young limbs, those merry smiles, That voice that thrills you, all those tender wiles With which he wins you, and delights you so. Tradition calls him, and his country's woe.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES T'r.-J Federal Parliament seems to be Hogging itself Into a frenzy con cerning certain pyjamas, and if Mr. Anstey can compass it we sliall pre sently bo enormously concerned over the Great Pyjama Crisis. First of all it was alleged that pyjamas contain ing in the pockets letters from Red Cross workers were on sale at Ha baul. Then there were no pyjamas, as was clearly set out in two letters to two different people who never re ceived them. Then there was a mili tary court which sat in the sub-back basement of Room X2347, point C re peating, of Victoria Barracks, Sydney. After that there were pyjamas, but not the pyjamas in question. Every thing was all right and the man who bought the pyjamas was an untrutlier because these pyjamas were not those pyjamas. Now it is all quite clear, and if you don't believe us, ask Mr. Anstey. I want to trust my fellow-men; I like to think their morals sound. And yet the column headed "Lost" Is thrice the size of that called "Fou...

It is proving very useful to vegetation, and the prospects of a good sepson are excellent. . The wet weather has greatly damaged the reads in many places, and traction engines - will scon bavo to stop, as the roads will not carry such heavy traffic.

The list of meat prices in last week's 'Advertiser' suggests either purchasers of that article must havo a long parse or a short, appe tite.

Ordered to join the lighting column with the llaorilanders, the troops advanced stolidly through a hail of bullets up a gradual slope, extending into open order as they advanced. Their charge was led by a Brigadier, who jumped to a p irapet, shouting "Now then, Australia!" The men gathered themselves up and shouting "On Australians! Come on, Aus tralians!" they swept over the parapet like a whirlwind and out across the deadly plateau.

Violet Coital Sentntei Published Every Tuesday Morning TUESDAY, JUXE S, 1915. CONTINUATION CLASS. An excellent beginning bus been made with the evening Continuation Classes at Violet Town, under the supervision of Mr. J. J. Johnson, the eneigetic head teacher of the State School. Between 'birty and forty pupils have already enrolled, ranging from lads in their teens to others who have passed the dividing line between youth and man's estate. The movement is a splendid one for any country town, where thors are usually few incentives or opportu nities for young people to improve their mental standards. It ib all too often the experience that as soon as a child ia the couutry districts is eb!e to go to work, its school educntion is finis-lied off abruptly, and there >s little or no attempt eo keep up intellectual advancement dur ing those precious years of'1 the teens," during which character is developed and ImbitB formed that will assuiedly rule and govern the later stages of life,...

"WOMAN " WHO IS A MAN Ten Years' Masquerade Revealed by Chance. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

'! "WOMAN " WHO IS A MAN Ten Years' Masquerade Revealed by Chance. Amazement was caused at Notting ham when it was announced that an individual who had for ten years been regarded as a woman is in reality a man. The case in which the woman man was concerned came before the Court earlier in the week, when "Miss j de Yien, astronomy recorder," other wise Helen Phillips, was accused of fraudulently collecting alms. The | weird-looking prisoner was profusely 1 bedecked with medals, heads, rosar | ies, and crucifixes. "Her" face was of a deep bronz" color, "her" black j hair was tightly knotted beneath a ' littlq' battered straw hat, and "her" skirt barely reached "her" knees. The chief constable created a sensation by declaring that defendant must un dergo medical examination, as tnere | was a doubt regarding "her" sex."

THE BRAVE SERVIANS [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

THE BRAVE SERVIANS Says Sir Thomas Lipton, who lias done splendid work for the relief of the Servians: "No braver people exist than the Servians; they have never a word of complaint. In one ward I saw a fever patient, his magnificent voice booming songs to cheer his comrades. Some were in a delirium, calling for '.Mother.' One source of infection is the army black bread, which is the only ration of the troops. The pa tients in the hospital receive daily a loaf, which they put in their bed or under their pillow. Later the unused loaves are bought by peddlers and are resold, sprea Ung disease among the people, who ore medieval as far as sanitation is concerned. A Servian soldier is gi\en a gun, a rifle, hand grenades and perhaps part of a uni form, but otherwise looks after him self; his rations are coarse bread. "The best hospital in the Balkans ' is at Belgrade, under Dr. Edward W. Ryan, of the American contingent, where there are 2900 patients. Dr. Ryan kept the hospital neutral du...

The entrance of Italy into the war makes a reference to the Italian Court! interesting:- I No European monarch has had such an apprenticeship for royalty as King ! Victor Emmanuel Mr, the Italian I King. His mentor was Colonel Osio, I a versatile martinet, very distinguish- j ed soldier, and one of the most re- 1 markable men in Italy of his day. He took charge of the Italian heir-appar- ' ent on one condition; that he should never he interfered with in his deal ings with him; and this compact the then King and Queen of Italy scrupu lously observed. If the Prince asked the late King Humbert whether he might atteud some social festivity, or go to the theatre, his father invariably said, "Ask the Colonel," and Colonel Osio usually refused on the ground that it would take his charge away from his studies. | A high moral tone has now for years 1 pervaded the principal European Courts, and in this respect no Court is superior to the Italian.

"You're getting to the end of all your troubles, now," he added, en couragingly, to the bridegroom. Time went on, as time will, and a few months later the olil minister met the young fellow who had started matrimony with such a smiling face. "You look pretty miserable, my friend," said he.

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, 17/4/1915. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, 17/4/1915. Spring is here. The trees are burst-1 ing ?with bud and every park and gar den is gay with flowering bulbs. The daffodils in particular are gloriously j fine this year, bigger, more vividly yel low and more outstanding than one has noticed them for a long time. An even ing or two ago I was walking through Regent's 'Park. In the distance one noted the banks of crocuses, yellow and white. In the beds beside the mam walk there were splendid dis plays of tulips and other flowers. But the daffodils in their beds of gold out shone everything else. Some of Re gent's Park has been set aside for a cavalry training ground, and many of the fenced-in fields are torn and brok en up with the hoofs of horses. But enough is left to provide London with one of the most charming and attrac-! tive of its lungs. Now that spring has returned the little grey squirrels have come out to greet their old friends in the park. Crowds of people turned to watch t...
