"GOD BE WITH YOU." (To all the dear Yass lads who have gone to fight). [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
"GOD BE WITH YOU." (To all the dear Yass lads who have gone to fight). My lips said just "Good-bye! " yet my heart's beat Was: "God be with you on your war-toss'd way! " With hope and fear contesting, that we meet, To claim glad homage that you've won, some day. I kiss the hands, endeared with blistered scars For me, and all my women-kind to keep us free! And my whole womanhood stands up at Stiff Salute, For all you've given up, and suffered too, for me; Because on Duty's path you stood so true, And faced the hardships training made for you! And though the answering challenge of my heart Grows taut because a hand-clasp is the end. E'en so, my friend. God speed you on your way And back again—rand if that may not be, Ah, still, "God's speed"- :——my friend! —Mollie Bawn. Yass.

POLITICIANS' WAGES. JELLICQE'S £5 A DAY. "The Government must set an example if Ministers expect their speeches to be effec tive," says the London" Telegraph." "Is it seemly that Ministers should divide among themselves at a time of financial stringency a sum of about £150,000 annually? "Is it in accord with the British habit of , mind that at such a moment the House of Commons should continue to votenHelf~~j5a2^_ ment at the rate of £400 for each member, absorbing about a quarter of - a million . ster ling? "Can anything be said in excuse for the allocation of a matter of £20,000 each to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland and the Attorney General, or £10,000 to the Lord Chancellor?

BITS ABOUT BAGDAD. ENCHANTED CITY OF ARABIAN NIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
BITS ABOUT BAGDAD. ENCHANTED CITY OF ARABIAN NIGHTS. Immortalised by Haroun al-Raschid, in the story fo the Arabian Nights, Bagdad, which has a population of about 150,000, was built on the ruins of an ancient. Babylonian city dating back to 2000, B.C. Records have been found on ancient bricks establishing its early date. j Ever since the days of Haro.un al-Raschid ' the Jews have been the leading figures in the j commercial world of Bagdad. There are 50,000 I of them, • with, about 8000 Chaldean- (or heretical) Christians. The remainder of tke population is made up of Persians, Turks,. Armenians, Arabs, and Kurds. Sinbad the Sailor was born at Bagdad, and all his marvellous adventures begin by his going.down the Tigris to Bussorah (the mod ern Basra), the way the British Expedition i has come up. j Militarily, Bagdad is of no great import I ance, but the moral impression which its fall will make on the Arab and Persian fron tier tribes will be very great.
