FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES \ Running a country newspaper is not all sunshine. A rural editor gives the following hint:—"The fellow who can play billiards,'smoke cigars, have six penny difnks, shout for others, trip it to Sydney, go to the .races, etc., should not overlook the fact that he owes us a couple of quid." "D'yer see that there old cove com in' outer Jones' pub?" remarked the way-back leg-puller to. a new arrival. "Well, 'e's the champeun boozer ov this locality.. He's been . drunk fur a quarter ov a century, an' if 'e wos ter wake up some mornin' an' find 'imself sober I do believe the shock would kill 'im. Twelve months ago 'e wos bitten by a tiger snake, an' badly bitten, too." "Did the man die?" the new chum asked. "No," replied the bushman, "but the snake got blind paralytic drunk." Beauty is only skin deep, but curves is curves. "The Secret of Smart Dress," runs a headline in a contemporary. Some of the costumes we have seen recently had nothing secret\bout them at all; "Jo...

OUR BIGGEST TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

OUR BIGGE&T TREES. Writing of big trees in Australia, Mr. Maiden mentions a David Boyle, who was , always among big timber, who in 1889 wrote to the "Argus" giv ing particulars of a tree 522 feet in height. As this statement was chal lenged, Mr. Boyle replied that it was 10 years since he had seen this giant, and, on revisiting it, he found the top blown off, but the tree otherwise healthy. The measurement now, he adds, is 466 feet. Mr. Caire, a well known Melbourne photographer, said that he had taken a photo, of this giant, and that it was 464 feet high. Just about this time (1888) the Vic torian Government decided to investi gate the matter. The Government offered about £1000 to have the tree measured and photographed. The offer was not jumped at. But eventu ally the tree was found. The Inspec tor of Forests measured it, and found the height to be 219 feet 9 inches. The Hon. James Munro, then a member of the Govex-nment, being convinced that the big trees mentioned actual...

THE FIRING LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

THE FIRING LINE. I'll give you a toast, my comrades,, to drink in water or wine, Whatever your creed or custom—The Men in the Firing Line! Officer, sergeant, private, sapper or bombadier, Gunner, dragoon, or guardsman, lan cer or engineer, j At dice in the deadly trenches, with life or death on the "chance— I The men that are helping Belgium, > the troops that are holding France. > They marched to the front with music ' —they go to the rear-guard dumb, To suffer in stoic silence the wounds that shatter and numb; They came in the hour that called them, they fought as it showed them how, And we know with never a tremor that the day of their test is now. They laugh as the shrapnel sifts them; and whether the dawn is grey, Or the staring searchlight blinds them, they die as they lived—at bay; They fell as they fought—defiant, with all of their wounds in front, Attaining the great fulfilment of those that have borne the brunt. They wait for the frenzied German who dares not wait fo...
