STONE AGE CEMETERY. An important archaeological discov ery is announced in the shape of a burial place of the Stone Age which has just been found by Professor Dall Osso, of Ancona, in the Yalle Viforata, in the Abruzzi, Central Italy.

FODDER EQUIVALENTS. Comparative tables of the nutritive value of various foods, and the pro portions of proteids, fats, and carbo hydrates they contain, have long been available for students of human die tetics.

WOMEN STUDENTS IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
WOMEN STUDENTS IN GERMANY. In an article in "La Revue Gene rale" on "German Women at the Uni versities," Dr. Bertliold JVIissiaen, af ter pointing out the necessity which exists at the present Jay for more instruction for women, goes on to show to what extent women in Ger many have taken advantage of the University career which was opened up to them, but will now take years to put in order again. He says that although from the autumn of 1908 to 1912 the number of women students rose from 1172 to 2586, there are only 2586 women to 54,525 men stu dents, so that there is yet much pro gress to be made. The same state of affairs exists at the high schools or technical schools, where again the men entirely outnumber the women students. The author largely attri butes this lack of response on the part of the women to the need of bet ter preparation for a university career in the schools, particularly in Prussia. The Catholic students, he tells us, who in 1908 only numbered 61 to 150 Jewesse...

THE MAN FOR "THE DAY." We call you Tommy Atkins—you're our Nation's hope and pride ; You're always to the front whe* cannons rattle; We can trust you to uphold, the honor of our side, When you're put to it upon the field of battle. On Belgian soil their game you'll spoil, the Teuton foe shall see; You are ready for the challenge and '• The Day," And when the issue's settled, "If to be, or not to be," We feel certain they will show their blank dismay.

"Who's Tippets?" the night porter aBked. - Paddy looked at him with a pitying eye. "I'd ha' thought you knoo more about your country's foe," he said.

NOT EVEN THAT! [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
NOT EVEN THAT! | He was one of a large family of boys. Their mother hoped that at -least one would have been a good Presbyterian minister, but they slip ped through her hands. Zebulon was the youngest; and all her hopes cen tred in him, until he said: "Mother, I am sorry, but I cannot become a minister." "Why not?- What is the reason?" He answered, "I am not good enough to be a minister." She was sorely troubled, but at last filtered out, "Zeb, don't you think you are good enough to be a Unitarian minister?" Don't you know the first thing that Eve said to Adam in the Garden of Eden, and women have said it ever since: "Oh, don't, Adam, you do make me so untidy!" The Kaiser has commenced jour nalistic enterprise. He is personally dictating war news and articles on the campaign.

YARRAGON. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
TARRAGON. From Our Own Uurresijondent The Yarragon members of G- Coy. 48th. Infantry, returned home last Thursday, after having put in a forfc night under canvas at Qneenscliff, Tis broadly whispered that the rations supplied were almost as deadly as German shells and many were thankful the quantity was limited. In other respects the boys spent an enjoyable time. Altogether, there are only six infantry men at Yarra gon, but this could be increased to about twenty if a training area was established here. The Ladies of the town and dis trict have held two meetings and are making socks and other useful wearing apparel for the nse of the troops going to the front. Ifc is 6tated that the local school children intend lending their aid in the same dirtc tion. As a result of a collection taken up in aid of the patriotic fund, on election day, over £31 was collected. The elections passed off quietly here, but a fairly large crowd of electors waited till nearly midnight to hear the results of...
THE ROAD TO FAME. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
THE ROAD TO FAME. "At last," cried the musician, "I have fame within my grasp." "How so?" asked his wife, who had heard the same thing before. "You know Mendelssohn's 'Wedding March,' and the marvellous repute it brought him?" said the musician. "Yes, what of it?" "Well, I'm going to write a Divorce March." Shearers are reported to be scarce in the back country, yet the city seems to swarm with them. All is not gold that glitters, In arcades; All is not love that titters Jjike bright barmaids.
THORPDALE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
THORPDALE SOUTH. From Our Oivn Correspondent The Tborpdale footballers played their final game last Thursday oven ing. The game played coald hardly be called football, bat it was jaat as interesting, far more friendly aad bo occasion arose for »ny arguments, In short, a dance was held to wind up the season with the object of se&lt; caring a gold reserve with which to brible the Club's creditors. In these troublous times the Club considered > this step necessary in order to pre* rent the said creditors imposing a war tax. Also, our environment is historical (as far as the Thorpdale railway extension is concerned) so we did not want our district sacked and the Club along with its apparatus transformed into ruins. Like good people under the thumbs of the Ger mans, we are paying up,—thanks to the ball being such a brilliant suc cess. The part that calls for a smile is that the Belgians who are now paying up, will get their money back; the Club won't, A few weeks ago, Mr Macke...
