Dogs Guard Prisoners. GERMAN HOUNDS AT INTERNMENT CAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

Dogs Guard Prisoners. GERMAN HOUNDS AT INTERNMENT CAMPS. Sir Edward Grey, in a recont memo random, mentioned that the Germans had set dogs at British prisoners. Tills may not appear very dreadful to the casual Australian, but It is. An English writer states that be fore the war he happened to be stay ing in a provincial hotel in Germany, at the back of which happened to be the training yard and meeting place of a police "hutid" club. These dogs did not belong to the police, but to private individuals, who were as en thusiastic with the training of their dogs as the Britisher is with his race horses. "Tiie first day 1 came down to the midday meal," states the writer, "I bent down to pat a large sheep dog. Instantly every person in the room called to me to stop, and the owner explained that England was the only place where it was safe to pat a strange dog. 'That one,' he remarked, i.-; perfectly trained and could kill you in a minute.' I gazed down at the dog, and noted the unmistakab...

London Letter. Carmelite House, London, Saturday, January 22. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

London Letter. Carmelite House, London, Saturday, "January 22. What is to be the dominant note of England in 1916? 1914 was the year of surprise. 1915 was the year of dis appointment and of national awaken ing. I believe that 191G will be the women's year, for it will sec women occupying a place in our national economy that they have never dream ed of before. A few days ago I was discussing with a leader of national industry the outlook for women's work. 1 told him thpl 1 thought of going to France for two or three weeks to see there how Frenchwomen were setting the world an example in undertaking new national tasks. "There is no need for you to go to France," he said. "Admittedly France led the way. Hut this year England "-.ill leave her far behind in the em ployment of women i:i industry. We have begun r» bit late as usual, but we are going ahead at a pace that no one outside a very siu;:ll circle realises." The facts that have come to my notice since have shown that my friend was...

Pugilist to Fly. LES. DARCY OFFERS FOR AVIATION CORPS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

Pugilist to Fly. LES. DARCY OFFERS FOR AVIATION CORPS. Les. Darcy, the world's middle weight champion boxer, has offered his services to the "military authorities for a place In the aviation corps. This has been a favorite form of enlist ment among pugilists since tho un rivalled Georges Carpenter got his fly ing commission in Trance. There is no discernible analogy between flying and boxing, and one would think that a man handy wIUj his fists would bo very useful in the trenches. The avia tion service, however, has its very special dangers, and if tho punching brigade has a fancy for,bomb-dropping credit must be given for a high patrio tic motive. If you want to see the smartest, nicest, 'cutest, and sweetest baby that ever lived just get any mother to show you hers. Judge: "I don't think women have always been vain; you know women were made before mirrors." Fudge: "And they've been before them ever since."

Money in Wheat. ENTERPRISE OF TWO BROTHERS FARMING NEAR COROWA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

Money in W ieat, ENTERPRISE OF TWt BROTHERS FARMING NEAR COROWA. About 10 years ago, when station properties in the Corowa district were being subdivided into wheat farms, two brothers, the sons of a Goulburn Valley farmer, crossed tho Murray and inspected the land. Trained utuler an experienced farmer, they were not slow to realise the pos sibilities of profitable wheat culture in the breaklng-up or vtrglu land, as good ns, if not bettor than, the soil on their father's property. The idea of mailing a new home ill New South Wales was encouraged by the father, who paid the deposit on the land—in those days values were much lower than now—and equipped them with teams and implements. Starting in this manner, the Coughlan Brothers, of N'umurkah, paved the way for the series of successes which in a few years' time liave transformed their mi'dest venture into one of the most prosperous agricultural enterprises of the Corowa district. That the young Couglilans had not over estimated the f...

Higher Pensions Urged. JOURNALISTS SPEAK UP FOR SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

Higher Pensions Urged. JOURNALISTS SPEAK UP FOR SOLDIERS. A deputation from the Australian Journalists' Association found Trea surer Higgs compliant, almost, last weok, when tliey urged that higher pensions should be paid to wounded , liliors. In an age when liandl-crafts men earn anything up to £10 a week, there Is something crooked about the logic that awards only £1 a week to the soldier who has incurred terrible bodily mutilation for the sake of his country. The natural corollary of the minimum wage is the minimum pen sion. A man who is entirely incapaci tated cannot live on £1 a week, and how can his family live? If the Aus tralian people have common gratitude for the sacrifices which have been made for them, surely they will not let their broken heroes sink into ab ject poverty—they who have given and deserve so much. Springs are little things, but they are- »ources of large streams; a helm Is a little thing, but It governs the course of a ship; a word, a look, a frown—are all...

Kept at Home. SOLDIERS WHO CANNOT BE SPARED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

Kept at Home. SOLDIERS WHO CANNOT BE SPARED. Out of the Australian democracy have come so xnanv thousands of bravo, devoted and generons-hearted men, tliat It is at times a little dis tressing to find among those who arro gate to themselves the title of leaders of democracy so many reckless slan derers, ready to believe evil and readi er still to repeat it. The loose and I unfounded statements made at a meet ing of the Ballarat Political Labor Council about "cold-footed" ollicers were promptly blown to smithereens by Brigadier-General Williams' un equivocal declaration that there is not one officer in the camps who has not asked for war-service. Many valiant and callable men are fretting their hearts out in training and organising work here and are praying that they may be allowed to go out and take part in the Heal Thing. But the cold truth of it is that our stock of eill cients has run so low that these men absolutely must uot leave us or we should be unable to carry on the work o...

About the Fruit Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 March 1916

About the Fruit Farm. There is nothing more fascinating in the culture of land than the pro duction of fruit. Fortunes are some times made in this difficult work — but fortunes are often lost. The production of fruit demands knowledge, patience, and experience of an exceptional character. Let us look at one or two things that arc done on a fruit farm. There are thousand* <if trees, and tens of thousands of bushes, and, with a big group of exceptions, every one bearing fruit. "You purchase your trees of a grower, you dig holes in the ground, arid you gather your fruit." That is the popular view of the matter, but it is entirely wrong. Why does this large group of apple trees present an abnormal appearance? In the prime of their ' life they are cut down within four feet of the ground. Every branch has been lopped, and is budding again from the stumps, and some are in bloom. What does this mean ? Ten years ago there was a plan tation of Cox's Orange Pippin, a re markable app...
