Federal Elections. THE GIPPSLAND SEAT. THE POLL DECLARE*). Mr. Terre'.l, the returning offi cer, declared the poll at Sale on Friday afternoon, as follows:— Wise Bennett 15,484. 14,874 Majority for Wise, 610. Mr. Wise said that, in rejecting jthe supporters of ,th,e Fusion Minis try, the people ot Gippsland haS done the; same as the mass of .the people bt Australia, who at this critical time in the history ol the Commonwealth would not have a Fusion Ministry, and preferred to place the Labor party in power. It was said at the time of the pre vious elections that the rolls were in a bad condition, and that double voting had taken place. The Fu sion party in power had purified the rolls, and was beaten. Mr. Bennett said that, when he entered the field in 1913 he was successful on a poll of 75 per cent, ot the electors, then the highest ever polled in Gippsland. This fime the vote was 84 per c.ent., and he had been defeated. He gave his opponents. the warmest praise for their organisat...

MOONDARRA. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914
MOONDARRA. Fine rains have set in, and a good season is assured. The stoppage of one large saw mill, and the reduction ot output of others, is responsible for more dullness than usual. A patriotic social and dance was held at the local State school, in conjunction with the Gould State school, in aid of the Belgians and the patriotic fund.' It was a fair success, about £6 being netted. A simi'ar entertainment will pro bably be held in a iartmght or so for the same object. Halt the mo ney was sent to each of the above funds. Mr. W. H.. Gould has sent away a fine lot of bridging timber from the Gould station recently, and this industry should be one ot the best in these parts; but such are' the difficulties in dealing with thQ trucking and loading, and getting trucks when required, that contrac tors are about disgusted with the delay ,trouble and loss involved in getting the timber off their hands. Hence, it comes about that in spite ot the fact that, we have almost unlimited supplies ...
Troops and Troopships. A GRAND SPECTACLE. TROOPS ON THE MARCH. TRARALGONITES RECOGNISED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914
Troops and Troopships. A GRAND SPECTACLE. TROOPS ON THfc MARCH. TRARALGONITES RECOGNI SED. (By cur Spec's! Representative) , The Melbourne papers have gi ven fu'l and extended descriptions of march of the 5000 troops that are about to- go to the front to fight for the Empire, and to crush Pmssian militarism. No pen and ink sketch can give the reader any l idea of the great masses of people rufehing to the city by train and other services, and lining the streets along which the troops were to march. It is also utterly impossible for a writer to give ex pression to the thoughts surging through the minds of the specta tors as the troops marched by. Perhaps the uppermost thoughts were a sense of gratification that '■ the lion's cubs were growing strong I enough to help the Motherland,! and stand side by side with her [ in her heroic 'defense of the weak nations and of treaty rights. Pride at the fine physique of the men who had volunteered, and because they were prepared to make such gr...
A Labor Lesson. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914
A Labor Lesson. . What it means to have a Labor) Ministry in control ot a State dur ing a period ©t depression is being painfully shown in Western Aus tralia. Mr. Scaddan and his col ! leagues are probably the rs.west ! unsophisticated body of politicians | who have ever held office in Aus ; tralia. . In time pf peace, they made | a beginning ot socialising the tim ' ber, shipping and meat industries, : and by the losses sustained in thi.s ! way considerably swelled the an nual deficit—caused by this reck : less financing of the ordinary af fairs ot government. They are now obviously preparing to-use the war as a .screen to hide their past mis management, and cover a further Attack on the property of the party opposed to them. The " war tax," which was forced through the E,e Legislativc Assembly recently, is really a startling piece of 'ty ranny. Western Australia has no | justification for imposing) a war tax. As a State, she has nothing to do with the sending of troops to Europe. ...
AIRCRAFT IN WAR. THE MENACE OF THE ZEPPELIN. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
AIRCRAFT IN WAR. [ THE MENACE OK THE ZEPPELIN. I i .;> ( ^ In 'view of the recent cable an nouncements that Germany is fever ishly pushing *on with her Zeppelin fleet and has been indulging in night ly; practice at torpedordropping into Lake Constance, a summary of the latest achievements in air-ship de velopment may be of special interest at this stage. ' Three main disabilities handicapped the Zeppelin dirigible as a fighting machine, and, in overcoming these vessel after vessel came to grief till the Kaiser and the Count were re ported to have reached the limit of their patience. These disabilities were lack of speed limit; of elevation to, say, 4000 feet, and inability to de liver effective attacks or defend them selves from attack. Details of construction have been preserved in strictest seci'ecy, but re cords of trials have been freely pub lished of late, and the extent to which the handicaps referred to above have been eliminated, may be judged by the following striking, n...
AUSTRALIA WILL GAIN MOST. At THE END OF THE WAR. Says a German Seer. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
AUSTRALIA WILL GAIN j ; MOST. " At TH"e: EMd. OF THE WAR. Says a German Seer. The following is an extract from a speech made by Victor E. Kroemar, in Stuttgart, Germany, at the Inter national Socialist Congress in August, 1907:-r—. "The result of this Avar will be that Europe will be a dreadful place to live in, and that as soon as the war is over emigration on an unpre cedented scale will take place to America and Australia, mainly to Australia. After the war, a deeper sense of brotherhood will pervade all nations, resulting in the realisation of many of the ideals for which refor mers have been striving for centuries. The outcome of the war will be as follows, according to my methods of reasoning from past causes to future effects, combined with instinctive per ception and a knowledge of the oc cult (hidden). "After a terrific struggle Germany will be defeated on all sides, and a succeeding revolution will establish a German-Austria Republic. The Slav part of Austria will go to Ru...

WON'T YOU DO SOMETHING ? STORIES OF THE BELGIANS." HARRIED BY THE ENEMY. WITHOUT HOMES; WITHOUT COUNTRY, Writing from London under date September 5, the special representa tive of the "Sun" refers to further in-' cidents in connection with the war. "^e Jill yin in de end, ;vraiement, in de end. Our Allies, they help us, we all vin in de end." Just as I was eating my dinner after my first breath of fresh air for a week, a sweet voiced nun with the delightful restfulness of her calling, came to my front door and said that she had three Belgian refugees—a mother and two daugnters. She had nowhere to put them, could I give them beds and food until Monday morning? .They wait ed without in the street. They were soon up the steps, and if ever people | needed a roof over their heads they did, for they were tattered and torn, and toil-stained, and moneyless, and foodless, and friendless, in a strange city, in a strange land. At first there y was a mutual quizzing, then a thaw ing-, then a co...

AN EMPEROR'S, APPRECIATION OF HIMSELF. The following lines were published in an American newspaper about 15 years ago :— Translated from a German memorandum found in the Emperor's personal wastepaper basket. The original has been presented by the finder to the British Museum.—Jean Kendrick Bangs. Oh me ! Oh my ! And likewise I! ! Sit still, my curls, while I orate, Me, I, Myself, The Throne, The State. 1 am the earth, the moon, the sun, . All rolled: in one ! Both hemispheres am I. Oh My!

It makes me tremble like the aspen tree, To think I'm Me ! And blink like stars up in the sky, To think I'm I — And shrink in terror like a frightened elf To realise that I'm Myself. Ye blistering slaves beneath my iron heel, What know ye of the tings I feel ? Didst ever wake at dead of night ? 'And stand in awe of ...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT.
