WVHeN:the military training , for this w.ir came into operation, it: could plainly be seen that .Queens cliff was to have a bad time throtigh having its roads materially dam aged and beach fencing: destroyed, We mentioned how the who.le thing· would be rememibered at the con-. clusion of .the trouble. This is now to be done. The War, cer tainly, is not yet at an end, but military training has virtually ceased, and the Borough Council is now anxious about setting its house in order after recent disturbances. By reason of our situtation right at the Heads and in the midst of military preparation for defence, there is no municipality in the Comnmonwealth which has been so disturbed and ,dbattered' as has Queenscliff. We have been re quired to.yield all. control of roads and byways and protection to the foreshores, and tohave about half a-mile of well-matured ti-tree cut to thgieground, in preparedness for' invasion. .The latter, is, perhaps, tiheinost serious of ll1, as by the sand hum...

SAN AW-FUL NIGHT IN AIL ALPINE PASS. 4--- --- How a mountaineering party lost its way in an Alpine snow storm, after a guide had first collapsed and then become delirious, and how it spent a night without food in a hole hewn out of the frozen snow. is vividly described by Mr. Elliot Stock in the August number of "Travel and Exploration.".. ' "What's to be done, Hans ?" 'asked 1 Mr. Stock when they knew thef ivere lost; 1' we can't stop here. We shall be frozen solid in a few hours." "We have to, Herr," replied the? guide, soberly. , 'We .must wait, al ways wait. We cannot move, it we cannot see."' They roughly . hewed a small eavr out of the snow ~ on the mnountairn side and crept in. How the night passed is described as follows : "We must all, have dozed, to . be awakened roughly by one another at intervals; for it would have been fatal to have slept outright in that intense cold. We were kept awake, oo, by our patient's delirious state. At odd moments he would spring into a sittin...

PLACES NOT DOWN ON THE MAP. Lovers' Lane. - This place has one marked peculiarity: although it is the most populous lane in the world, it never has any more than two peo ple in it at any one time. It is very easily reached, having a wide en trance just off the main boulevard from Boyville and Girlville ; but once in it, the way'is quite troublesoine. owing to the, various paths that lead out of it. You can,. if you are luckyv go straight along over the heights of Matrimony to the end, or ,you may get lost in Wrangle Town. Sometinres a person doesn't diR cover Lovers' Lane until late in life; but this fact only makes him the more enthusiastic about it. A great many scientists and philo sophers hive tried to locate Lovers' Lane without success. Even when they have come upon it by chance, they have not been able to survey it accurately. Indeed, the moment you get into Lovers' Lane you are lost. Thunderstorms happen there quitP often, but when the sun shines and the birds begin to sing-...
A BEAR KEEPER'S PERIL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 January 1915
A BEAR KEEPER'S PERIL. :, A keeper named James Murra?y had a thrilling escape at the Zoological Gardens, Philadelphia, some years ago, while cleaning the cage of the polar bear. This cage, which stands by itself near the south-east entrance is built of strong iron bars, and is about 20 feet in diameter, with a, stone den at the back and a tank in the centre, large enough for the bear to roll in. The iron bars slope in ward at the top, and form a roof eight feet above the floor, with a circular opening about three feet in diameter over the tank. As is usual when the cage is to be cleaned, Murray drove the bear intc his den and closed the iron'-grating between that and the cage. He-then entered,' closed and fastened the door: and was playing water from a hose into the den, when, with a ferocious growl, the bear threw itself against the grating, which gave way, and Bruin rushed upon the keeper. Murra3 saw at a glance that there was only one hope of escape, for he was securely fastened ...

PUBLICATIONS. How Germany Hates. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
=PUBLICATIONS. . How Germany Hates. . We have had a good deal of literature telling of the Allies' point of view in the present struggle, and the publicatiaonof the German White Paper gave us the German official explanation of the causes of the war; but apart from stray refer ences in the cablegrams, little has been said about the mental attitude of the press and public in Germary. There fore, a section of Dr Fitchett's history of the month, in 'Life' for January, devoted to this special subject will be welcomed. 'So the German papers are encou raged to express " popular" views about the war; views which all good citizens of the Fatherland entertain or ought to entertain about the merit and triumph of - everything German and the wickedness and fast-coming ruin of everything non German.'...... Dr Fitchett holds that 'when the tumult of the present war has died into silence, and the sky of the race has been' cleansed from the battle-smoke that now darkens it, facts will be seen in cle...

Sunday Corner. The Hiding Away Of Self. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
Sunday Corner. The Hiding Away Of Self. No grace shines more brightly in a Christian than humility. Where ever self comes in it mars the beauty of the work we are doing. Seek ,to do your work noiselessly. Do not try to draw attention to your self, to make men know that you did this beautiful thing. Be con tent to pour your rich life into - other wasted, weary lives, and see them blessed and made more beauti ful, and then hide away and let Christ have the honour. Work for God's eye, aud even then do not think much about reward. Seek to be a blessing; and never think of self-advancement. Do not worry about credit for your work or about monuments; be content to do good in Christ's name.

Whab is clearer than that if Eve 81 and Adam 812, the total is 8931 But if Eve 811st and Adam 812, they would have eaten 1623.

However, admitting that Eve 814 Adam, and Adam, if he 81281242 keep Eve company, which would make 81,282,056. The truth of the matter is, however, none of these. Eve when she 81812 many.

A letter has been received from Mr Farrer, stating that the request of the petitioners that the half-holi day be observed in Queenscliff on Wednesday instead. of Saturday, will be granted when the Executive meets. At a special meeting of the coun, cil on Tuesday, at which almost the full council was in attendance the question of damages incurred to borough property-fencing, roads, &c., since the outbreak of war, was considered. The engi neer (Mr Cazaly) had prepared an approximate estimate, and this was gone into minutely. Regarding the wear and tear of roads the engi neer adjudged traffic had reduced the ordinary use of the main road by one year's use; that is, that the road had been reduced by 1 inch in thickness of bluestone metal from the railway station to the main camp near the Cottage-by-the-Sea, and that it would cost about £250 to replace the worn part. This is the basis of estimation of the rord way, and this, with the fencing amount, will be duly forwarded the Min...

THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
ThL 4t'UUkEf.iSlvIS OF Dr. SPOONER. - +-------- There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr. Spooner, the Warden of New College, and his fame though peculiar, is likely to be last Ing, for he has added to the gaiety of our nation by inventing a new form of humour, the picturesque transportation of initial syllables. It is said that he owed the inspiration to his first =nurse ; but it was not till he became an Oxford don, and blandly annofinced at divine service that the hymn would be-"Kinquering congs their tatles tike" that his peculiar genius found full recognition: and "Spoonerisms" gave a new facet to humolr. A little later he con vulsed the congregation at morning chapel by reading in the lesson of the day that, "it is easier for a.camel to "go through the knee of an idol," and na:tonished an audience of working men by as' ing them if they never felt -"some vrag.e yearning, some na'f-wrrmed fish, for a higher life." The undergr:rduat.es of "New" were zot slow to resp...
