HILAIRE BELLOC ON BULGARIA'S FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
■■lYiililffiaiB HILAIRE BELLOC ON BULGARIA'S FUTIJRE. At the moment when this article is written (Oct. 10) it seems certain that the forces of Bulgaria are to be put into the field, against . toe Cause of the Allies and to join those of enemies. The event is not only a very "£&>at one, changing the whole aspect of the war, but it is also one which, if we do not - understand it in all its'hearings, may lead us fcp misjudge the present of the war and its' probable future.1 ,*■' Some of the causes of the new situation are ...... , , well known; many are obscure; all have been widely discussed. What has been less examined are the possible consequences, • not in the immediate future, but later on, of this change. Perhaps my readers will allow me to go into these matters and present them as I see them. There are four national groups which after centuries of foreign Mahommedan government were restored partly, but only partly, to free and Christian self-government. These are ...

THE INCONSISTENCY OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
THE INCONSISTENCY OF MAN. (By Bide Dudley). Down in her heart Helen really cared for Joe, but she wasn ;t quite ready to admit it. She was a chorus girl in a Sydney show; he clerk in a chemist's store at a salary of £3 a week. Joe was hard-working and sincere in his love for her, but Helen wasn't so sure. She might be willing to forget him if the Prince came along and offered her a castle in Spain. Stranger things than that have hap pened to chorus girls, you know. On her way home from the matinee one day Eelen dropped in to the store for a chat with •Joe and a free sample of Foam-at-the-Mouth tooth powder. She had already had eight samples, which faet again proves that advertis ing invariably pays somebody. Joe greeted her with joy bordering on raptcre- "Listen, Helen," he said, "I'm to be raised a 5 bob a week soon. Will you marry me?" The possible Prince loomed up in Helen's mind immediately. "No." she replied. "I'm. not ready to get married. Stop bothering me about that, Joe!" F...

COLLIE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
■ y . (From Oar Correspondent") Still the dry -weather prevails, ■with only a haze working up from the north-west as tlae only encour. agernet to those who desire a * good . fall of rain. The infant child of Mr and Mrs S.' E. Sadler, of "Pleasant View," Collie, has for the last week been under the care of a medical mini in Dnbbo. One of Mrs S. Mealey's children (Ada) was bad last week, too, and -was taken into Warren for medical attendance. Collie is a bit indignant about Warren wanting to play them a game of cricket. Collie thinks that its sons are playing a more noble game than crieket, and asks Warren to join their team and help win a victory for the Allies. As sports on , the cricket ground, Collie speaks highly of the Warrenites, but ques tions their latest inquiry, asking if it is really In earnest. Mr Jim Welsh does a bumper trade this hot weather.

POLITICS IN [?] GENERAL STATEMENT WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
GENERAL STATEMENT WANTED. \ (By Dr. J. Ingram Bryan.) Though the Japanese Cabinet survived th£ dmpeacliment motion brought against it' on (December 18, saving the day by a majority , of 90, the excitement in the Diet was Some thing remarkable, and the country at large is still unsatisfied. The motion of impeachment charged the Government with responsibility for: the Oui» scandal, when large sums of money ware utilised in influencing • the elec torate, with having revived the Nogi family in opposition to the dying wishes of the great hera, and with bartering away the ■nation's liberties in having agreed to the proposal of the Allies not to make separate peace without having consulted first with the Imperial Privy Council, and with failing to demand a quid pro quo. As the Gov ernment controls 240 members in the Diet and the Opposition only. 129, with 12 Indepen dent's, who were expected to side with the Cabinet, the defeat of the motion against the •Government was a foregone conclusio...
MASCOT SAVES LIFE. SCOTCH SOLDIER.'S LUCK. LOVER'S TALISMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
MASCOT SAVES LIFE. ^ SCOTCH SOLDIER. 'S LUCK. LOVER'S TALISMAN. What so mysterious as luck? Not one but a thousands instances might bo cited of mirac ulous escapes from death by soldiers, whose end seemed as inevitable as night following the day; and yet from the heat and fury of battle they have emerged unscathed, thanks to some trivial circumstance which they them selves could scarcely credit. t One of the most singular instances of a Tommy's life being saved is provided by the experience of a Girvan soldier, Private James Thomson, of the 6th Camerons, who was severely wounded during the great advance. The story of his salvation makes strange reading. After he was struck on the left breast it was discovered that his life had been spared by the fortunate circumstance I that he was carrying at the time in the \ipper pocket of his tunic a little bundle of letters and postcards, a soldier 's hymnary, and a small metal-cased mirror. The bullet penetrated the pocket, tore through the hy...
SUBMARINE ACTIVITY IN THE BALTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
SUBMARINE ACTIVITY IN THE BALTIC. It will be interesting to learn when the war is over how the British submarines man aged to break through the narrow straits leading from the North Sea into the Baltic. That they have done so, probably in consider able numbers, is shown by their great activ ity against the contraband trade between Scandinavia and the German Baltic ports. Apparently the fleet has recently been aug mented by at least two flotillas of subma rines; for according to a dispatch from Co penhagen, a flotilla of destroyers headed by a light cruiser of the " Undaunted" type con vo}red the submarines to the entrance of the Cattegat, at the northernmost point of the Jutland coast. The light cruiser remained here while the destroyers convoyed the sub marines to the narrowest part of the Sound at Elsinore, whence, they made their way unaided into the Baltic. Once they are,, in these waters, they can be operated from bases on the Russian coast; and in their at tacks upon German sh...

Oh, do, mother dear,'she exclaimed in answer to a remark made by the elder woman.
