SAVE! SAVE! SAVE! War Finance in a Nutshell. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915
SAVE! SAVE! SAVE! War Finance in a Nutshell. The present situation of war fi nance has been put very clearly by a writer in the London "Globe." We want over 1000 millions a year for the war, and it is estimated that the nation's total income is about 2400 millions a year. How is it to be done? Perhaps the simplest way of showing the situation is to represent the nation as an individual, and say Mr. Brown, with an income of £240 a year, has to pay certain debts at the rate of £100 a year. It is true that he might borrow money from other people or use bis savings or draw on any money be may happen to have lying in tbe bank. If he does so, he will be so much, tbe poorer at the end of tbe time than he was at the beginning. If he sells bis investments be will no longer get interest on them; if be borrows from other people, he will have to pay interest on tbe sum lent to him, and eventually will have to repay tbe new money be has borrow ed; if he uses his idle money, his loose cash will d...

WOOL AND WAR. POSITION OF AUSTRALIA. CLOTHING THE WORLD'S ARMIES. £20,000,000 tlJ SIGHT. Never since 1827, when Captain J. Macarthur's clip toppea the market in London and cold &&lt;: 16/4 per lb., has Australian woof shown such a soaring tendency to high prices as it does to-day. Thosw were the days when Australia's wool clip was repre sented by a thousand bales—a total which any ordinary wool buyer on our exchanges would think nothing of grabbing at a single sitting. To day the Australasian clip is normal seasons totals 2,527)463 bales, a net weight of £>26,924,667 lb. This was the 1013-11 clip, and of this 1,968.578 bales, or 639,769,5161b., was sold in Australasian markets, the value being £26,079,536, an average of £13 4/11 per bale. Normal conditions, either In the market or the clip, have not pre vailed during the past two seasons. Drought has played havoc with flocks, and, except in highly favored locali ties, has reduced the quality of the wool. It is est...
LONG MILITARY MARCHES. With "Bobs" from Kabul to Kandahar. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915
LONG MILITARY MARCHES. With ".Bobs" from Kabul to Kandahar. To the pluck, perseverance and ten acity of the troops which made the forced marches which enabled him to completely surprise the Germans, who had not anticipated such rapid move ments, General Botha owed much of his success in South Africa. Some idea of the wonderful endurance of the sol diers may he gathered from the order of thanks issued by General Beves to the 1st Infantry Brigade, in which he stated that the Brigade covered 245 miles practically without a break, the last eighty mile3 being .accomplished in four days, with a final burst of 45 miles in thirty-six hours. This feat must be regarded as phe nomenal, when the fact is taken into consideration that water was difficult to obtain, and that the difficulties of transport made it necessary for the men to receive half, and for six days quarter, rations. A recent exploit of Indian troops will stand out as one of the most re markable incidents of the war. It ap pears ...
She Snapped. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915
She Snapped. I courted once a girl who on photo graphy was mad, And taking snap-shots was her re creation; She would roam about the land, with a cfamera in hand, And an accident would cause much jubilation. She was great at homely scenes, such as "father picking beans," Or "mother sitting in the garden dozing," But she caused me much dismay when she named the happy day, By "taking" me while on my knees proposing.

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY.. Printed and published by LIONEL SPARROW, sole Proprietor, at the office of the "Grenville Standard" i newspaper, Clyde street, Liaton, in the State of "Victoria. Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, DEC. 4, 1915. So-called State enterprises are usually striking examples of anything but-enter prise. Secure in the possession of a valuable monopoly—such, for instance,' as the railways or the post office—Gov ernment management is apt to drift aim lessly, allowing the business, as far as possible, to manage itself. The difference between a State enterprise and a State monopoly is readily seen by comparing the State Insurance Office with any other Government department. The In surance 'Office was established to do; business under the Workers' Compensa tion Act. It is run by a-Commissioner and a staff, practically all of whom have been trained in the world of business i side Government departments. They, hav...
WOMAN'S WORLD. DO WOMEN DRESS TO PLEASE THE MEN? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915
WOMAN'S WORLD. DO WOMEN DRESS TO PLEASE THE MEN? Strong-minded women often de clare they don't, and individually they may be right in their statement; but there is no doubt that the majority of women do dress for men, and, moreover, are right in doing so. Take the case of the young girl with a lover. What is more natural than that she should wish in every way in her power to make . herself pleasant in his eyes? She knows that he rejoices in her charms, and very rightly she gives him the oppor tunity to rejoice as much as possible. Very soon she finds out what is his favorite flower, and what color gown appears most to please him, and, hav ing made certain of these points, she takes care that her dress shall be such as he will admire. Have you never heard a girl say proudly: "I wear blue because it is Charlie's favorite color," or "I have put back my fringe because he did not like it?". Her aim and object is to meet with his approval. After marriage, the same thing goes on, for not o...
CHAPTER III. Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915
CHAPTER III. Trouble. If Miss Trevor thought that Hec tor was the kind of opponent to al low her to win the first move in the game, she was very much mistaken. As it happened, the young man knew where Mrs. Parker lodged in Soutn Kensington, and left Card-crescent ; with the intention of going at once to see her daughter. Hilda's mother approved of the solicitor, who had been introduced to her by Dr. War ton in connection with some legal business, which he had carried through successfully. Also Mrs. Parker knew that Hector was a rising man with an excellent charac ter, and very much desired that he should become her son-in-law. Hilda, however, thought otherwise, as the airs and graces of Jade fascinated her to the exclusion of Rayburn's much more sterling qualities. The anxious lover knew this, and knew also that Mrs. Parker favored him. So now that Colin had behaved so badly he drove straight to South Kensington in a. taxi to see if Hilda would look upon him kindly. She could scarce...
