S.O.S. WIRELESS NOW COMPULSORY ON BRITISH SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
s.o.s. WIRELESS NOW COMPULSORY ON BRITISH SHIPS. Through the German ship-owners not having vessels equipped with wireless telegraphy much of their mercantile marine have .come easijy into our hands. British steamships have now, under a compulsory law, to instal wireless on all vessels carrying 50 or more persons, including the crews. To the famous S.O.S. signal ... . . . (the dots representing S and the dashes 0) is to be added the signal signifying danger, as in the case of icebergs. It is the T T T danger sig nal — — —. The dashes are the same as for the letter O, the distinc tion being that the spaces are wider. Failure to use the wireless signal in case of distress or danger will sub ject a master of a ship to penalties, The Titanic disaster, and not the war (it may be added) has brought about compulsory wireless; "John," she said, as he settled down for his after-dinner, smoke, "I've got a lot of things I want to talk to you about." "Good," said her husband affably. "I'm glad t...
PADDY ON FLOATING MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
PADDY ON FLOATING MINES. "There's things that oughter be, and things that oughtn't to be," said Paddy the Boots. "Can you lend us a fill of tobacker?" The oracular sentence meant that Paddy had in his head thoughts which craved utterance; the request meant that the thoughts would not be revealed unless in response to gifts. "That's good tobacker," he said, when his pipe was fairly going. "Did y'ever stop to think of the rights an* wrongs of scatterin* them floatin' mines all over the sea?" * "England wanted to have them pro hibited at the last international con vention," said the boarder, "but Ger many would not agree. You see, Eng land has enough naval power to de- i stroy an enemy's trading ships. But Germany hasn't. So Germany would not give up the right to sow mines." "I couldn't have put plainer, me self, somethink that everybody knows," Paddy said graciously. "That's just how it is. But a ordinary bloke can't 'elp thinkin' it's a dirty trick to spread gelignite an' nitrer-glis...

"HOCH, DER KAISER." [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
"HOCH, DER KAISER." These verses were recited at a Union League Club dinner in New ¥ork to some naval officers, on April 21, 1899, and at once became famous. It took three years to quiet the inter national vibrations. Der Kaiser of der Vaterland Und Gott and I all dings command, Ve two—ach! Don't you understand?

CHAPTER XIX. After the Verdict. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
CHAPTER XIX. After the Verdict. Herepath staggered back before the force of the cruel blow. In his heart of hearts he had never dreav of anything quite so 'bad as this. He thought that perhaps he might have to wear glasses, would have to he care ful, that his reading would be restrict ed, but nothing more than that. He had hoped to get those precious drawings finished a bit at a time. If he carried out the commands of his doctor he would be compelled to spend qvery penny he possessed. On his return to England he would have to begin the world all over again. Hitherto lie had felt so strong and self-reliant. Now he had a curious feeling of weakness and utter depen dency. He would have to rely on strangers in future; he would have to trust his fortunes to those whom he could not even see. Slowly and gradually the blood crept back to his cheeks again, the r°aring in his ears died away. "I "'shall have to keep a, dog," he said bitterly. "A dog the end of "a string." • "It won't be quite ...
THE SERENADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
THE SERENADERS. A fiddler tried a serenade; She didn't smile on him. She scorned the music that he matin Zim-zlm. A fellow with a banjo came. The damsel didn't think' It worth emerging for his tame Plink-plink. The third arrival won the girl, Although his tune was punk, He drove up with a noisy whirl, Honk-hunk! Christopher A. Papageorgacoupoulos took the name of Moore because it was' less. A husband whose convivial habits have been a source of worriment to his wife recently came home one night after a particularly joyous ses sion and laboriously proceeded to pre pare for a bath before retiring. Just as he was about to step into the tub he suddenly recoiled and backed up against the wall. A little green and yellow turtle seemed to be staring at him from the soap-dish. A chill be gan to steal up and down his spine when he discerned a pink duck nest ing in the sponge rack, a purple snake peeping from the waste pipe, and several bright-colored fish lying about the floor. Suppressing a ...
THE LOVELINESS OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
THE LOVELINESS OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. I am not cantankerous because I have never been in love, but because I have been in love so often—in unre quited love. And as onlookers see most of the game, I will lavish on young swains and love-sick lassies the wealth of my experience. Love takes the heart out of young men and puts heart into young girls. The young man will not say boo! to a goose. Strange things call forth a young man's love. Langorous legs in pur ple and transparent stockings, pretty and provoking faces, low-necked blous es, a go-away-closer look in the eye, rouse his ardor. The more ornamental and the less useful the maiden, the more he loves , her. He would rather have a "skirt," as they call them in the States, who is "some skirt," whose eyes are like midnight pools with the moon on them, whose hair is plenteous enough to stuff a cushion, and who doesn't know a scrubbing brush from a saucepan, than a squint-eyed girl who cooks like an ang...

On another occasion he remarked: "You are not so smart at getting about as Alice was. You' don't appear to catch on where she left off." About this time a heavy rolling-pin came in contact with his head. "What do you mean by that?" he ex claimed, in agony. ' ' "I am doing the work that Alice ne glected," she replied, with evident sat isfaction. , There was more peace in that household 'afterwards.' " " '

THE FASCINATION OF WAR [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
THE FASCINATION OF WAR War , ; | I abhor! And yet how sweet The sound along the marching street Of drum and, fife, and I forget Broken old mothers, and the whole Dark butchering without a soul. Without a soul—save this bright treat Of heady music, sweet as hell; • And even my peace-abiding feet Go marching with the marching feet, For yonder goes the fife, And what care I for human life! The tears fill my astonished eyes, And my full heart is like to break, And yet 'tis all embannered lies. A dream those drummers -make. Oh, it is wickedness to clothe Yon hideous, grinning thing that stalk» Hidden in music, like a queen That in a garden of glory walks, Till good men love the things they loathe; Art, thou hast many infamies, But not an infamy like this, Oh, snap the fife, and still the drum, And show the monster as she is! —Richard Le Gallienne.
PIGEONS AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
PIGEONS AND THE WAR. The British Government has the ser vice of thousands of pigeons avail able for service, ana was it foresight or the working of fate that caused the iilast Coast federation of British figeon Flying Clubs to change their trkining and racing route from France to Arlon, on the German border near Iiiege, the scene of the present severe lighting? The news that the Germans have been filing the air by wireless in order to smother messages sent out by their enemies proves that the pigeons will still be of great value as messengers. The French army has portable pigeon lofts on military wag gons. The pigeons are trained to re turn to these lofts and do remarkable work, even returning to their own loft after it has been shifted a dis tance of twenty miles. The mounted corps all carry pigeons with them. They are carried by scouts in baskets strapped to the back, each man carry ing two bird6. A scout can lie con cealed close to the enemy, sketch their position and forward any...

GERMANY IN THE PACIFIC PLACES THAT MAY BE SEIZED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
■ GERMANY IN THE PACIFIC J i PLACES THAT MAY BE SEIZED. Mr. Audley Coote, Senior Consul in Australia for_the Republic of Panama, writes:— ' I am enclosing a printed list of Ger 'many's possessions in the Pacific Ocean, compiled by one who has tra velled among the Pacific Archipelagos, thinking it would interest you at this time, aa I am the only cable conces sionaire in the Pacific Ocean in whose name all the Acts of Parliament have been passed for cables for many years, during which time I found it necessary to secure the landing rights for Eng land, France and Germany. Among the several landing rights obtained for cables was one that Ger many most desired of all, viz., the one from Herbertshoe to Cooktown, in Queensland, but an event arose when the cable was about half made that caused me to withdraw from that spe cial concession. Although I had se cured the right to land the cable—that will be heard of in future history— that cable was laid in another direc tion. Events are now h...
