Ncbody sings the English transla; tion of the Marseillaise-or what lih happe:es to kn.w of it--with more tlhoroughlures or energy than Toreomm Atkins; and nlbody thinks more of the Frcnch natiol--in the bulk.

They like him; but they must be look. ing at him with wonder, and sa:i inj their heads. This letter will tell the rest of the story. It came to the "Daily Sketch' office recently, wrtten on n a long sheet of foolscap, in copying ink pencil, by a soldier who was invalided back. Boulonge, 10 p.m., Saturday.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 26 February 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent) How neessary the motor bus has be d coime to the suburbanite was brought s home to him the other day when the s employes of the Company that provides that service stopped work. The buses have become established in competition with the trains and cable trams. The electric trams are the only system of t locomotion that can withstand them. t It is not that they are comfortable. y Much the reverse is the case. For the S-ound shake-up that is salu to be good for the liver-though it is probable that that, like many similar generally accepted beliefs is quite wrong-a trip along St. Kilda road on a bus is about as effective as anything could be. But the craze for getting there quick is of remarkable growth. For instance, by taking the bus from High street on St. Kilda road in preference to the cable tram, there is a saving of about five minutes in the run to the city. Granting that time is money and put ting the value on the basis of the tim...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 26 February 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") There is a tendency to regard the. trouble of hard milkers as curable only in one way-that is by sellini gthe cow to someone else. In the case of a young cow, of a good milking strain, it is worth attempting a cure. Teat-dilators may be tried These are inserted in the teat duct after milking, and left there till the next milking. They are kept in place by a tape pass ing through the eye of the dilator, which is tied round the teat. Other in struments are obtainable which are self retaining. Great' care must be taken to sterilise the dilator before inserting to prevent danger of introducing germs. This is easily managed- by boiling the instrument in water for 10 minutes. The tube should be smeared with vase line, which has been kept in an airtight -bottle, to ensure an.easy passage. The action of the dilator is to relax the pressure of the sphincter muscles, which may be closing the opening of the teat. Sometimes the trouble is caused by a small gro...

DIDN'T HEAR THEM THE SAME WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 26 February 1915
DIDN'T HEAR THEM THE SAME WAY.. . A college "professor was walking across the campus with the dean of one of the colleges when the chimes in the library tower began to ring. "Dean," said he, "the music of those chimes is so beautiful that it always sets me dreaming of the past. My boyhood days-'" "What do you say?" interrupted the venerable Dean. "I say the chimes are very, very beautiful. They make me think--" "What ?" yelled the dignified old Dean again. "The chimes-the chimes-how: beau tiful they-" . "Speak louder!" cried the Dean once more. " "I can't hear you for those infernal bells."

STURF TOPICS. (By "`Flemington.") With the Caulfield- meeting added tc Turf hisbtory, all is now plain sailing tc the V-. R. campaign, which-'will be gin on Saturday: Fortunately the rae ing so far has not caused many break. dovns 'among the horses. A few well engaged gallopers, such, for' instance, as Aristsaeus, Audacity,- and Averse, who wcie expected to take an .import ant part in the present racing carnival have fallen out of the ranks for the time being owing to mishaps, but for tunately sufficient material of the right calibre still remains to ensure interest ing racing. It is generally. agreed that; judged on paper, this is going to be one of the most -interesting-Newmnarket Han dicaps. on record. The list of eligibles bristles with proved flyers. each and every one of which should be equal to mnaking very slick time over the straight six furlongs.

REPULSE OF THE PRUSSIAN GUARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 26 February 1915
REPULSE OF THE PRUSSIAN GUARDS. A French correspondent, describing .the British repulse of- the Prussian .Guard at Zonnebeke, near Ypres, last mouth, says: The English staff were dining when a despatch bearer an nounced the approach of strofig columns of the enemy with cavalry acting as a screen and supported by. ten batteries of artillery and two heavy guns. The English general succeeded in seizing a strategic point on the railway before the enemy and opened fire with his bat teries. The Prussians continued to ad vance, the first rank firing lying down, the second kneeling, and the remainder standing. Suddenly their ranks opened and machine-guns appeared. .The situa tion looked critical, but " the English general ordered a bayonet charge. One colonel headed his regiment shouting, "For Honour and England! " The op posing ranks met with a terrible shock. The bayonets of the Allies and the en emy frequently went home at the same moment. The ground and the uniforms and faces of the com...
HOW KHAKI WAS DISCOVERED. FORTUNE FOR A LIEUTENANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 26 February 1915
HOW KHAKI WAS DISCOVERED. FORTUNE FOR A LIEUTENAN'T. Khaki, the color which will render our troops so difficult to see, was. dis covered by .a happy accident. The British troops in India wore a cotton uniform -which, when it was new, was khaki in color, but after a vsiit to the laundry was indescribable. -A Man chester business man, discussing this defect, remarked casually that a for tune awaited the man who could find a khaki dye that neither. sun, soap, nor soda would fade. A young offi cer heard the remark, hired a skilful native dyer ,and began the search. Years passed in fruitless experiments till one day, turning over a heap of rags, relics of their failures, they chan ced upon one piece which was still khaki ,though the laundry had worked its will. But it had received no spc cial treatment, so far as they knew, ex cept that it had fallen into a metal dish. That was the secret. The metal of the dish and the chemicals in the dye had combined to produce that fadeless khaki colo...

- THE MASTER PASSION. (By -Lillian Ellerton). CHAPTER XL. BELGRAVE AT BAY. "There's Dcve:'el,'" said the Prince. "I want to have a word with him," and with a low bow lie stepped down from the dais, and mingled amongst the crowd which. parted -before him like two waves. Ida was watching the colloquy with the deepest interest, as if it were a State secret which were under discus cass:on, instead of racehorse, when a duke came up a-:d carr:ed her off. He was not a particularly interesting nian, and her attention wandered from his dull platitudes to the absorbing question whether Cis Deverel would ever conicme up to her again and hold out his hand in fr:endly greeting. Perhaps he might when he saw her .placed on a'level of apparent intimacy with some of the statliest and most respectable leaders of society. Lady Giandtowers, who waged war to the knife with the fast and the flighty gave her an encourag'ng npd as she passed by, and Lord Hilford, who ranked amongst the stead.est of hls pee...

MOVING PICTURES AND THE WAR. SENTERPRIS\NG OPERATORS. . In-this present war journalists and kinenmatograph operators have .been specialiy banned-. by the -military ,an thorities. of all the conflicting forces- neither 'one nor the other is officially permitted within miles of the front. Nevertheless, some vivid battle stories have reached London from some of the numerous English and American war correspondents in France and Belgium, and many London "picture houses" are showing excellent battle films which are obviously the genuine thing, taken on the spot, with no ;suspicioni of '"fake." The secret of how these feats are accomplished in. spite of the milita.ry bad was revealed to the London cor-. respondent of the Melbourne "Age'' by Mr. S.
