OHRISTMAS. HILLS. (a1o A coenueSPsowIUT.) A MIItACULOUS ESOAPE. Friends of tie Misses Jean and Kate Muir will he glad to hear that these young ladies are recovering from the shock, the result of what might have been a fatal buggy accident last week. It appears that they were returning from Yarra Olen to Christmas Hills, and, when driving on that por tion of the road between Marshall's corner and "Kincraig," which is un fenced, or, rather where the fence runs a long way below the road, a motor car came suddenly upon them in the opposite direction. The horse becom. llg unmanageable swerved across the road, thus bringing the back wheels o the buggy right over the bank. There was nothing to stop the downward career of the horse and vehicle, and down they went, only being brought to a standstill by Mr. Petty's wire fence, some yards. down the hillside. The young ladies were thrown out and, wonderful to say, sustained no injury. They are to be congratulated, not only on their escape, but ...

CLEVER FRENCH ROAD RUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 9 August 1918
,CLEVER FRENCHi IROAD RUSE. It was necessary recently to move in large body of French troops across an open place between two communi, cition trenches which were more than hall a mile apart. A large corps of artiste were given the task of paint ing'a long strip of canvas to tepree ent a rbad. This accomplished, the work of erecting the canvass on poles over the rent road commenced. When the covering was in place the long column ' of troops were marched be nciath it in safety and without' obese vation by the enemy. It was only In the early mornings and late in the afternoons that the passage could not be eniployed. At those times the shadows of the moving troops show ed on the canvass like dark blotches, and might have aroused the suspicion of enemy airmen. At all other times throughout the day, however, the de ception was complete. The canvass looked like the road it'covered, and it was impossible for airmen to de tecct the difference.

MINE EXPLODING BY WIRELE~S. From France came news a few seeks ago of success in the art of exploding ocean mines by wireless im pulses, but the news was received with suspicion.

'The wife cl the Prime Minister, who. recently drew aside the veil from one of the most painful domestic secrets as:odated with the official residence .of the First Lord of the Treasury the fact that until Mr. Asquith took posneslon of the premises it was ewithout a bathroom-might have gone a step further in her revolations. It ia the fact that althoigh, with ,few exceptions-andu notably the late IMar llis of Salishury-successive Premiere have resided within the wnlls:of.the historic building, the in co.icnfenenc of the place have by far outweighed the advantages gained by its geographical proximity to the Palice of Wostminister and, the ad .ministrative offices generally, It was not until Sir Henry Caemp *hell-Paunerman occupied the house that a lift was erected, and there has protably been no year since that im ,prc?ements of some kind or another have not been carried out, each new ;occupant endeavouring to replace the oremissions of his predecessor.
AEROPLANE AMBULANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 9 August 1918
AEROPLANE AMBULANCES. The many uses to which aeroplanes have teen put during the war are hardly known to the. general public. Unlike other war weapons they have 'een u'sed to save life as well as to -destroy it. During the Serbian re treat 'aeroplanes were used as ambul anhes" for the first time. Thirteen wounded men needed to hbe removed at once; several would lose their life tnlces operated upon without delay. The -ourney over mountainous ruads to a roast hospital, was beyond the aRrentth of the men, so it was decid ed to carry them to the Italian port of Valano by aeroplane. One of the worst cases travelled over 200 miles thus, the pilot making one' landing a? Prizrend-to make sure that his passenger was still alive.

ST. ANDREW'S. Sergt. Bliss and his pall, Sergt. Grip, are to be congratulated on the impression made on the audience which attended the exhibition of war films in the Public Hall on Tuesday evening last. The pictures, which showed our boys under various conditions of active service, and the excellent description by the Sergeant thrilled those present. Special mention must be made of the train approaching the Forth Bridge, letters from home being read under fire, serving the camoflauged guns, and our soldier hero from Wedderburn. The applause which greeted these scenes and the lightning sketching witic followed was only exceeded by the hearty cheers for " Our Boys," fighting and returned, which closed the proceedings. Shortly before 9 o'clock an opening was made by a duet by Misses Mitten and Hirt and the National Anthem. Sergt. Bliss having taken part in the historic landing at Gallipoli, paid a deserved tribute not only to our men, of whom John MacclesfieId writes:-" They were the ...
