ONE HUNDRED YEAfeS AGO. POSSIBLY many of tho growing generation know the story of Water, loo moro from the listening to tho talc, of how Bill Adams won it- than from any more authentic sourcc, but tho celebration eff the ? centenary of that world-shaking event naturally focuses attention on tho Belgian battle-field as view, ed in the light of Waterloo 1'cr ohance it is more:; than a coin-' cid^Dcer-wlio - knpws?--that ou.- -lliju^ hundredth anniversary all J'Juroj:u is resounding with the tread of armed forces, and the historic bat tlefields are agtain the scenes of sanguinary warfare.

BLIND BRITISH HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 22 June 1915
BLIND BRITISH HEROES. There are now nearly fifty British soldiers, including three officers, who have lost tlieir sight in the war, and there are also in England three sight less Belgian soldiers, while from the British Navy there is one blinded sailor-a midshipman. Sightless soldiers and sailors will be given preliminary instruction at St. Dunstan's Hostel, Regent's Park, . ! in carpentry, boot-repairing, mat-mak.' ing, basket-making, telephone oper ating, massage, poultry farming, mar ket gardening-opening a good indus trial field for their future. A romantic attachment, expected to culminate in matrimony between a leading society girl and a merchant's beauteous son, a few weeks since high ly interested the elect. The tea-table tattlers believed that such a union of cash, love and good looks would be perfect. One evening the young man visited his adored, and solemnly in formed her that ho intenoed to act the part of a man-and enlist. Certain it I is that she became hysterical, and...
DECIDING THE WAR OPINION OF A FRENCH VETERAN. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 22 June 1915
DECIDING THE WAR OPINION OF A FRENCH VETERAN. When is the war likely to reach its decisive stage? The question was put to General Cherlies, a French veteran and a competent newspaper critic, and his reply was: "During the coming summer"-i.e., during June, July and August. "Where will the decisive battles be fought in the West?" he was asked. "Between the Meuse and the .Moselle," was the answer. "How will a decision he brought about?" was the third and last question, and the reply given was: "By opening a breach in the German line some 30 miles wide and six miles deep." The opening of such a breach is more practicable than many imagine. At one stage ot the Neuve Chappelle battlo there was a breach in the line, but the Britishers were not in sufficient, numbers to take advantage of it. Reflect upon your present bless ings, of which every man has many, net on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
FOR THE FARMER. THE CONSERVATION OF FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 22 June 1915
FOR THE FARMER. THE CONSERVATION OF FODDER. If we -wero cnly to think o£ the pi.~*jnt the.e would Le no need for a iizcussion on the subject of the pre servation of fodder (writes Mr. Dun can McLennan, vice-president of the Victorian Chamber of Agriculture). The recollection of most people is all too acute of the disastrous period through which we have just passed, and it may be taken for granted that resolutions frequent and positive have i been made oy those who have, suffer ed never to be caught napping' again. The experience of the past, however, teaches us that these resolutions re semble very much the penitential vows of the Bacchanalian reveller, who, when racked with remorse in recovering from his orgy, solemnly, and at times profanely, declares that never again will he look on the wine v'hen it is red or any other color. But these, at the time genuine and sol emn resolves, seem to disappear like the morning dew before the rising sun when the next "thirst" comes along. The k...
LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, May 1. The Shadow of War. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 22 June 1915
LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, May The Shadow of War. The shadow of war fell deeply on us during the week-end. The news from the front was enough to justify an xiety, and for a few hours it' looked as though the Germans were succeed ing in forcing their way on to the dofonces of Dunkirk itself. Happily for us the Germans' forward move lueut has been stayed, and the British Army is now on the offensive. I was at Dover on Monday. The wind was blowing from the north-east, and we could hear clearly the sounds o£ heavy guns in the distance. . Everything in Dover spoke of war. In the harbor were many fighting ships. A great biplane paused before going out on its mission o£ defence and attack: A strong coast squadron o£ the Royal Naval Air Service swept by. Looking up at the old castle on the hill top 1 could see anti-aircraft guns pointing skywards from the turrets of the! keep. The south coast keeps watch and ward. Had . the German forward movement succeeded it would have meant r...

EXPLAINING THE WAR. GUNS AND HOWITZERS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915
EXPLAINING THE WAR. GUNS AND HOWITZERS. Seven, different kinds o£ artillery are taken into the field by most of the armies now engaged in the Great War-mountain, horse, and Held guns, light and heavy howitzers, position guns and siege artillery. The moun tain gun is a small and light weapon, which can usually he taken to pieces and can be moved forward in sec tions by men. An excellent little gun of this kind accompanies the French chasseurs alpins, and has been em ployed in the fighting for the Hart mannsweilerkopf. It fires a shell weighing about 121b., and is very handy and serviceable. In the British Army the horse artil lery gun is a 13-pounder, generally similar to the British field gun, but lighter and smaller. The most famous of the European field guns is the French "75" (75. millimetre or 3in. weapon). Its spe cial excellence lies in its recoil ar rangements. All modern field guns are placed on carriages which are so designed as to absorb the shock of ) recoil without allow...

THE DUPE. A Drama in which every actor wore a t mask of secrecy and a woman failed ! in her part. | By Catherine M. Kerr. On a wild, wet night, when excep-! tionally few passengers were crossing ; by tlie Dover - Calais boat, a man, early aboard and apparently indiffer ent to the raging of the elements i around him, stood and watched late comers ascending the gangway, j Among them were two women, ob- j viously mistress and maid. Upon the , former the watcher bestowed but a i cursory glance, but the latter's extra- | ordinary beauty attracted his notice, , indifferent to women as he was at all j times. "Such beauty in the garb of , servitude!" was the thought which flashed across his mind as he moved away. Five years later Julian Fayne wealthy, and a so-called misogynist was seated over a solitary breakfast, with the newspaper propped up at a convenient angle before him. Most o£ his attention was fixed upon the pictured face of a remarkably beauti ful society woman which had appeared...

SHOT AT DAWN CONDEMNED SOLDIER'S TRAGIC FAREWELL. We need no reminder as to the su preme importance o£ discipline, but in the administration ,o£ military law, as in that o£ civil justice, there are oc casions when claims of mercy should not go unheeded. There is something inexpressibly pathetic about the fol lowing letter received by the wife of a private in France. "My Dearest Wife and Kiddies, Just a few lines in answer to your lov ing, letter I received quite safe. Well, I expect this will be the last letter from me, my dear, as I have got to be shot for being absent, but I could not help it, I tried to find my regiment. My doar, I wish I could have seen you all. You must try and do your best for the kiddies. I should not upset myself, my dear. I did my duty be fore I was absent. It has been all trouble with us.

THE "WAY WE WALKED. I met a woman on life's way, A woman fair to see; Or cauglit up with lier I should say, Or she caught up with me.

Well, I will be horn-swaggled if X didn't see a woman there dancing with all the men, and she wore a collar of her gown around her waist. She had a little corset on. Oh, I can't describe it. "You stand there and watch man after man as he claims her hand, and puts his name on her list. Perhaps that fellow was her lover and you won her hand-and you stand there and watch your wife folded in his long voluptuous cmbrace, their bodies sway, ing one against another, their limbs twining and entwining, her head, rest ing on his breast, they breathe the vitiated air beneath the glittering can delabra, and the spell of the music, and you stand there and tell me that there is no harm in it! You're too low down for me. "I want to see the color of some buck's hair that can dance with my wife! I'm going to monopolise ...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES Several healthy specimens oE the laughing jackass were shipped to San Francisco to become features of the Australian building at the exposition. But pending the completion of the aviary at the Australian building the birds were placed in the Golden Gate Park aviary to become acclimated. The park, like Alexandra Gardens in Mel bourne, is a trysting place for lovers. Two young lovers took their accus tomed seat near the aviary in the park. They had quarrelled, but had reached the stage where a kiss would turn the world into a thing of beauty. And the world was just about to be turned into a thing of beauty when a peal of loud, discordant laughter spoiled everything. The young woman, her face crimson with mortification, fled from the scene, while her swain, his own face red with other emotions, beat the bushes for the "Peeping Tom." The commotion attracted a policeman, who felt for the lover and assisted in the search. For an hour the two men vainly searched the bu...
