WHY SUBMARINES DIVE SLOWLY [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

WHY SUBMARINES DIVE SLOWLY Many people have the idea that as soon, as a submarine sees an enemy, the officer in command gives a sharp order, and almost before it has left his lip:s the submarine is diving be neath the waves. As a matter of fact, the very latest submarines of the "F" class take a clear five minutes before they can become submerged. Many of the older submarines took ten minutes to a quarter of an hour to sink. The reason why a submarine can not dive quickly, like a fish, is that the water which must be let into her tanks to make her heavy enough to sink must be let in comparatively slowly. If it were let in with a rush the chances are the vessel would not go down on an even keel, but would heel over and be in. great danger of disaster. If water, too, were let 'in too quickly there is a danger of let ting in too much, and in that case the submarine would sink like a stone to the bottom of the sea. The water that is let in the ballast tanks is just sufficient to "balanc...

PODDLES BUYS A MOTOR BIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

PODDLES BUYS A MOTOR BIKE. "Now, my dear," said Mr. Poddies, hurrying up to his wife's room, "if you'll come down in the yard I've got a pleasant surprise for you." "What is it?" asked Mrs. Poddies. "What have you got—a horse?" "Guess again," grinned Mr. Pod dies. "It's something liKe a horse." "I know. It's a new parlor carpet. That's what it is." "No, it isn't, either. I said it's something like a horse; that is, it goes "when you make it. Guess again." "Is it paint for the kitchen walls?" asked Mrs. Poddies, innocently. "No; and it isn't a hogshead of stove-blacking, nor a set of dining room furniture, nor seven gross of wash-tubs. Now guess again.". "Then it must be some lace cur tains for the sitting-room windows. Isn't that splendid!" and Mrs. Pod dies patted her husband on both cheeks and danced up and down with delight. "It's a motor-bicycle, that's what it is!" growled Mr. Poddies. "I bought it for pleasure, and I'm going to ride it. Come down and see me." "Well, I am glad!...

THE AUSTRALIAN. HOW HE FIGHTS IN GALLIPOLI A New Zealander's Impressions. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

THE AUSTRALIAN. HOW HE FIGHTS IN GALUPOU. ; A New Zealander's Impressions, Private W. Christie, of Christ church, is one of the fairly large body j of New Zealanders who joined the Australian forces when the "war broke j out, and who fought side by side at Gallipoli with the Commonwealth | men. He was in the first landing on j the peninsula, fought for some time, was injured by the. concussion of a bomb, was sent home, and returned j to Christcliurch last week, still wish ing to be in the trenches, but pleased to be in that city again, and to see I the familiar sights. He describes his life at the front as very fascinating. In the Australians, he said to an interviewer, he found I good fellows, cheerful comrades, and | first-class fighters. Ordinarily, the Australian dislikes discipline. In polite terms, he is not amenable to it. But on the battlefield he knows that j discipline is as necessary as guns and ammunition, and he gives his officers a measure of obedience that often carri...

IN GALLIPOLI. GERMAN "EYE-WITNESS.' WATCHING THE BRITISH FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

IN GALLIPOLI. GERMAN "EYE-WITNESS." WATCHING THE BRITISH FIGHT. Dr. Franz Babinger, the German | Eye Witness'- at the Dardanelles, j writes in the "Frankfurter Zeitung'': * "Efendim, haiwan hasyrdyr!" ("Sir, the horse is ready!"). With these words my servant Achmed. awakened me at midnight. I stepped out from the tent.. It was a clear, bright night, the moon shone brightly,' and behind it, in the misty distance, shone thousands of sparks of light — the stars; a picture of a beauty that can only be conjured up in the East. No sound animated the region. Jnly the chirping of the crickets, that are found in- large numbers in the whole peninsula, broke the uncanny | jilence now and then. In our camp ! .he weary warriors -had laid them selves down for a short slumber. Down below in the valley things were moving; our horses pawed the ground and stamped. Soon we were in the saddle, and we advanced slowly and thoughtfully, the animals searching out their path. Nothing betrayed the presence o...

FOR THE FARMER. SILOS AND SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

FOR THE FARMER. SILOS AND SILAGE. Mr. J. M. B. Connor, Agrieultura. Commissioner for the South-West o. West Australia, writes as follows re ipecting this always important sub ject: — Various inquiries have been made by settlers for information regarding the erection of silos and the making of silage, owing to the present sea son being characterised by an abun dant growth of natural grasses and j herbage. Properly-made silage can ; be kept wholesome for many years I without deteriorating, and I wouic* strongly urge the -immediate _ neces sity of settlers making provision fox j the erection of silos from material most suitable for their local condi tions, to save the large quantities 01 j fodder during the flush of the com ing season that would otherwise be allowed to go to waste. j In all kinds of cereal crops and grasses, when allowed to ripen and cure for stacking purposes, there is always a certain amount of loss in i food material as contained therein. This occurs in several ways...

The Art of Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

There is nothing on earth' so mysteri ously funny as the way in which many business meii treat an advertisement. The prime, first, last and all the time object of an advertisement is to draw custom. . So the merchant waits until the busy season comes, and his store is so full of custom that he can't get his hat off, and then he rushes off to the printer, and goes in for advertising | When the dull season comes aloDg, and i there is no trade, and he wants to sell his goods so bad that he can't pay his rent, he stops advertising. That is, some of them do. But occasionally a level-headed merchant advertises more, and scoops in all the business, while his { neighbors are making mortgages to pay | the water rate. Advertisements, are I built to do hard work, and should be sent out in the dull, .days, when a custo mer has to be knocked down with hard facts, and kicked insensible with bank rupt reductions, arid dragged in with irresistible slaughfer of prices, before he will spend a half-pe...

AMMUNITION FOR RUSSIA. THE SUPPLIES AVAILABLE. MACHINE GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 December 1915

AMMUNITION FOR RUSSIA. THE SUPPLIES AVAILABLE. MACHINE GUNS. By Lieut-Colonel Roustam Bek, in the "Daily Express." I have been frequently asked by my British friends if the rumors which are circulating to the effect that Russia is short of ammunition have any foundation. Certain people have tried to find the explanation of the so-called "Russian defeats" in tne shortness of ammuni tion in the Russian army. Only yesterday one gentleman in an important position said to me during a conversation on that subject: — "Well, I admit that Russia has the men, but she is very short of rifles." In order to put an end to this wrong idea I will endeavor to throw some light on the real position of Russia in regard to the armament of -her mili tary forces. Between 1891 and 1893 the whole Russian army was re-armed with a new quick-firing magazine rifle of five cartridges. The whole supply of fire arms required at the moment of mobilisation, was kept in special de pots, and when mobilisation for the ...

Hit Back. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

Hit Back. Walking along a road in the remote West of Ireland, two tourists were passing one of the cottages, or, as they are better known in the country, "cabins," of the peasantry. This par ticular "cabin" was even a more than usually dilapidated specimen of its class, and the chimney, consisting mainly of the remains of an old top hat, presented a comical, if pathetic appearance. Tipping, his friend the wink, one of the tourists accosted a youth who was sitting contentedly on a fence. - ' "I say, my boy," he said, "does that chimney draw well?" I "Shure, thin, it does/' was the prompt reply, "it draws the notice of ivery fool that passes by!"

Beyond His Power. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

Beyond His Power. / A certain actor who possessed mar- • vellous powers of mimicry, although he earned big money, was always very hard up. One day he visited his tailor to ask him for a little more time to pay an account which had been owing for, three years. While he was there a customer entered the shop and, after asking for a suit, paid at once. Then the actor heaved a sigh of pain. "What.is the matter?" asked" the tailor. i "Alas," replied the actor, sighing again, "that is a man I shall never be able to imitate!"

"More Horrible." ( A school teacher has lately been. I instructing her pupils in Grecian my thology. It is her custom to let the children read the tales aloud, and the next day recount them in their own language. One lad, to whom was , given the task of rendering in his own language the story of the Gor gons did so in these terms:— "The Gorgons were three sisters that lived in the Islands of the Hes- ' perides, somewhere in the Indian . Ocean. They had long snakes for j hair, tusks for teeth, and claws for ' nails, and they looked like women, only more horrible."

Quite Willing to Oblige. A popular novelist received from a woman an unstamped note, asking for the loan of a book on the ground . that she could not obtain it at her bookseller's. The -writer replied:— "Dear Madam,—In your vicinity there appears to be a lack of all sorts of things easily procurable elsewhere —not only of my recent -work, but al so of postage-stamps for letters. I have in my possession, it is true, the book you desire to obtain, and also the stamps to pay its carriage, but, to my regret, I am without the neces sary string to make it into a p&rcel. If you can supply me with a piece, I am at your service!"

He handed his wife a sovereign. "Here," he said, "run into town this afternoon and get a new one—a strong one— one that will last!"

"Mixed" Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

"Mixed" Advice. Two correspondents wrote to a busy editor of a country newspaper desiring to know, respectively, "the best way of assisting twins through, the teeth ing" and "how to rid an orchard of grasshoppers." The editor answered both questions faithfully, but, unfortunately, got the initials mixed, so that the fond father of the teething twins was thunder struck by the following advice— "If you are unfortunate enough to be plagued by these unwelcome little pests, the quickest way of settling them is to cover them with straw and set the bunch on fire." The other man, who was bothered with grasshoppers, was equally amaz ed to read: "The best method of treat ment is to give each a warm bath twice a day, and rub their gums with indiarubber." By taking an interest in the trou bles of others we lighten our own burdens.

Be sides his rejection of her love, which was so plainly shown by his engage ment to Miss Pilgrim, it wounded her pride that she should have been made a plaything.
