On the clasp | are two branches of laurel, and from the claBp the cross depends, support ed by the initial "V." An additional act of exceptional daring may be marked by a bar on the ribbon. The Cross was at first conferr°d exclusively on sailors of the British Navy and soldiers of the British Army, "out in 1911 the right to re :eive the V.C. was extended to in clude native soldiers of the Indian Army, who, until then, had been in eligible for it.

The Australian Bushman. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 July 1915
The Australian Bushman. Th« northern part at Australia la fact developing & particular type of; manhood, which makes it possible; even now to pick out Queenalanders, among a crowd of Southerners. The Queensland bushman is the only die-' tinct typo in Australia ; and byi "Queensland" one includes the nor-, thern portion of South Australia,; the whole of western Queensland to, the Gulf country, the North«rn Ter-. ritory, and the north-west of New South Wales. This fact is borne out by a Melbourne doctor who hao dons a great deal of medlc&l inspection for tho Defence Department, and who attributes the production of so dis tinctive a type to the climatic con ditions. He says :"Take the States separately. To sum up, tho men from Queensland are mostly slim and wiry ; the influence of climate and perhaps the nature of their working conditions in many cases causes them to acquire a frame that is in one respect not at all unlike that of aborigines. It is the lightness and wir...
Dodging the Doctor. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 July 1915
Dodging the Doctor. ' * Men burning with zeal to serve, their country in her hour of need Bometimes resort to amusing and in genious ways of hiding from the hard-worked medical officer their physical defects. An Irishman, during the Boer war, UBcd to tell of the way he deluded an easy-going medico into thinking that he had the complete use of both eyes when, in point of fact, only ono was any good at all. The doctor, he said, made him stand a certain dis tance away from a board, and told him to count the spots on it, first with ono eye and then w:;!: tho other. He was ordered to cover up hia right eye-the blind one-first with one hand ; this he did with his left hand, and, of course, counted the spots correctly. When he was told to cover up the other eye. he merely put his other hand over the same useless optic and read the spots agaiu. Another man who failed to enter Kitchener's army owing to the fact that he was a fraction of au inch .under the required height, went home and strai...
A Ton per Man. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 July 1915
A Ton per Man. For everj" man killed in battle one ton o! cannon balls is required. Al though this was an old theory in the days ol the flintlocks and muzzle loaders, it is a known fact to-day. General Rohne, of the German army, has proved this to be true by a care ful study of statistics on the Battle of Kiao-chau, which preceded the siege of Port Arthur during the Rus so-Japanese War. In this battle the Russians killed were 1,475 officers and men. The Japanese discharged 40,150 cannon shots and 4,000,000 ride cartridges, while the Russian force fired 736,COO rifle cartridges and 7,7£>0 cannon shots. Eighteen per cent, of the Iosbob were caused by artillery and 82 per cent, by small arms. According to '?.General Rhone, it took 105 cannon ""trills or 214 cartridges to kill each Japanese, and 151 cannon shots or 3,330 rifle cartridges to kill each Rus sian. The cannon balls used by the Japanese had an average weight of 142tb. 5oz., and the ride cartridges discharged by them weighe...

Kem irkable Prophecy. On Apiil 97 of last year (says the "Sunday Times") wu published a prophecy of the present great inter national upheaval which was made by Mr. G. D. Stone, of Petersham. At the time it attracted a great deal of attention, owing to tbe complete ness with which the prophet had v.'Oilted out the details of the war, aud the countries to be involved. In his prophecy Mr. Stone gave the date for the start of the big interna tional war as July 19X4. He men tioned Germany and Austria as the principals on one side, and Franco and Russia on the other, fo groat has been the interest manifested in the prophecy since the outbreak of the war, and so many have been the inquiries for copies of the papor con taining the prophecy that we repub lish it here as it was published on Apiil 27, 1913 : " The long-looked far European war will break out in July of nest year.

BKITISH MADE TOYS. Although the legend "made in Ger many" ]ms bccome so monotonously and painfully familiar to us, it iB soothing to hear that the GcrmanB have not had it entirely their own way with British children's toys. The best wooden horses and rocking horses have always been made in Britain, whilo fur-covered animals have also been turned out from our factories in large quantities. Ab for the British made toy soldiers, lield artillery etc., which are always so popular, no country can beat-or cijiuil tlicm, and British firmB have donn a large export trade in them to France and Germany ; so that to day many German children are con tentedly playing with regiments of Uhlans made in Britan.

SEARCH YOUR BOY'S POCKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 July 1915
SIvARCH YOUR BOY'S POCKETS. One of the beet indications of, and prides to a boy's mind is the con tents of his pockets, and any mother v.i:o studies them carefully will be able to gather inspiration for his betterment. Public school teachex'g ali admit that in order to know a bey thoroughly one must first know his pockets ; and some amazing dis coveries, some pathetic ones, and even some tragic ones have been made in this way. The pockets of the nature-lover will be found to bulge with shells, bits of bark, peb bles, insects, worms etc.,-indeed with anything that ho desires to ex amine and study. This enthusiasm led one boy to tho point of going to school with a couple of snakes in his pocket, and filling him with in dignant fury when they were taken from him. Tho future mechanic or civil engineer will probably carry innumerable nails, screws, wire and twine. A sharp knife will also go to his kit, a six-inch rule and a pencil. Also half a dozen examples in a more or less finished st...
State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. Article No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 July 1915
State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED Article No. 1. The war has been raging nearly a year now, and it is apparent it is no longer a question of the parts of the Empire doing a fair share, but of each part doing the absolute uttermost of which it is capable. The British race has never shun ned the task of being candid with itself, and the time is fully ripe for us in Australia to take stock not only of our periless position but of our efforts up to tho present. The man who believes that something will suddenly occur to change tho existing stale-mate into victory is living in a fool's paradise; tho man who believes that he need not volunteer because plenty of others are offering them selves is gravely miscontruing the forebearance of his acquaint ances who do not care openly to tell him their real opinion of him; while tho man who, be he the highest statesman in the land, who thinks people are satisfied with the present pace or with any pace other than our u...

A Column of Clippings. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 July 1915
A Column of Clippings. " Every rifle means a man " Give us rifles and we will get men "-these have been the secret refrains in Australia's War De partment from the early days of the struggle. Now they are public clamorings. The Censora have relaxed their rigid prohibi tion against the mention of the shortage of munitions, and the Ministry has come into the open with frank statements of its diffi culties. Those behind the scenes during the war have always known that an urgent personal appeal for fighters would bring out thousands of capable fighting males; and they have known that the one factor that prevented this appeal-that made the official re quests for recruits timorous and uncertain-has been a paralsying. scarcity of munitions. This is a' complete answer to the degraded1 traducers of this country, who go round crying out at the street corners that our young men are not responding as they should, and that Australians are already meriting perpetual slavery. The young men have be...
