"KEEP SMILING." A Few More Anticipated German Leading Articles. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
"KEEP SMILING." A Few More Anticipated' German Leading Articles. We have much pleasure in offering our readers a hypothetical anticipa tion, suggested by Berlin's maffickings over German alleged successes. . Such determination to look on the bright side of events deserves every encouragement. "The world stands astounded at the progress of German arms. The fall of Paris, London, Brussels, St. Peters bui^ and any other capitals of coun tries which we are at war with, but whose names escape us at the mo ment, is now absolutely assured. No doubt some attempts will be made by the treacherous foreign Press to represent our latest evolutions as adverse to our arms,, but even our enemies will shrink before such a Herculean falsification. Before the armies • of four countries—or, at all events, of Belgium—the German bat talions have proved their ability to move in the direction they wished. What can Europe do against such troops as ours, and such an Emperor?" Again: On the investment of Berl...

WHERE DOES THE FARMER COME IN? [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
WHERE DOES THE FARMER ' COME IN? Oli drat that everlasting hay; Spear piled 011 spear. We fight the stuff from day to day, From year to year. No matter if a thousand stacks This harvest yields; Next year we'll have to break our backs In these same fields. Who eats the hay? Not ma nor pa, Not me nor you. I ask again who eats it? Ha! The horses do. We raise the hay for horses' grub. ^ "Well, then," you say, "Why keep the horses?" There's the rub— To haul the liay!. The,.hay needs horses;, horses, hay It is a. sin. , Us farmer ginks will ask some day " Where we come'in? ' Australia again.

"PADDIES EVERMORE." Irish Lads in Their Last Sleep in Belgian Soil. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 November 1914
"PADDIE§ EVERMORE." Irish Lads in ITheir Last Sleep in Belgian Soil. Of all the letters received from the front none have! been so touching and simple as this one, written by an Irish soldier, Private P. McGlade, from "somewhere in France," to his mother: "We were all beat up after four days of the hardest soldiering you ever dreamt of I am glad to say we accounted for our share of the German trash, who are a poor lot when it comes to a good square ruc tion in the open. We tried hard to get at them many a time, but they never would wait for us when they saw the bright bits of steel at the 'busi ness end of our rifles. Some of them squeal like the pigs on killing day when they see the steel ready. Some of our finest lads are now sleeping their last sleep in Belgium, but, mother dear, you can take your son's word for it that for every son of Ireland who will never come back there are at least three Germans who will never be heard of again. When we got here we sarig 'Paduies Evermore,'...

"ALL HELL LET LOOSE." Dead German's Charge on Half Maddened Horse. . " . Writing home to one of his "friends, Trooper S. Cargill says: j "The Germans let all. liell loose on v us in their mad attempt to crush- us i and so win tlieir way to Paris. They | didn't succeed, and they won't suc ! ceed. I saw one gliastly affair. A I German cavalry division was pursuing lour retiring infantry w;hen we-were (let loose on them. When they saw j us coming they turned and fled, at . least all but one, who came rushing I at us with his lance at the charge. I caught hold, of his horse, which was , '.ill 5 ,&lt;i half-mad with terror, and my chum was just goingj to run the .-rider through' i when ie noticed the awful glaze in liis- eyes! and Ave'saw that the' poor devil was dead." ■ — i - a
SCREAM OF THE SHELLS. Sergeant-Major MacDermott states: [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 November 1914
•' SCREAM OF THE SHELLS. Sergeant-Major MaeDermott states: "We're wonderfully cheerful, and happy as barelegged urchins scam pering over the fields. Not that there's .much play for us. It's all work,- fighting, and fighting and work again, though you mustn't think I'm grumbling, for I'm not. I'm writing to ;yo.u with the enemy's shells bursting i and screaming overhead. Though | their artillery has been making a hellish row all along our front, we haven't seen as much as a mosquito's eyelash to shoot at. That's why I am able to write, and why some of us are able to take a bit of rest while the others keep "dick." It's the quantity, not the quality, of the German shells .that are having effect on us, and it's not so much the actual damage to I life as the nerve-racking noise that counts for so much. Townsmen who I are used to the noise of the streets can stand it a lot better than the countrymen and I think you will find that by far the fittest men are those of regiments recruited in...

"MATCH OF THE SEASON." i Sailor Describes Battle in Football Lingo. i A sailor named Jack Diggett, who took part in tlie naval victory in Heligoland Bight, in a letter to his , brother gives a description' in foot ball terms of the'battle. He says:— "You will have heard of our little job in the North Sea. We kicked off , last Friday about six in the morning, and we won live—nil. Not bad, con sidering we are playing "away." Their 1 goalkeepers could not hold us, we ; were so hot. Our forwards shot beau . tifully, and our defence was sound. , We agreed to play extra time if we had not finished, but we had done in • time. It must not be thought that we had it all our own road, for they were very brav&lt;j, and fought with their | last gun, until one of our boys fired I a shot at the last gun in tlie Mainz , and blew the whole gun and crew as j- well into the sea.

I-Iaslett:— "The other, day I stopped, to assist a young lad of the West Kents who had been badly hit by a piece of shell. He hadn't long to live, and he knew it, too, but he wasn't at all put out about it. I asked him if there was any message I could take to anyone at home, and the poor lad's eyes fill ed with tears as lie answered, 'I ran away from home and 'listed a "year ago. Mother and dad don't know. I'm I here, but you tell them from me that I'm not sorry I did it.'
