ANTI-ZEPPELIN SHELL TO RIP GAS BAGS EFFECTIVELY AND EXPLODE INSIDE AIRSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

ANTI-ZEPPELIN SHELL TO RIP GAS BAGS EFFECTIVELY AND EXPLODE INSIDE AIRSHIP. The means taken by the authorities in England to thwart Zeppelin raids will be of many types. The question of their effectiveness is interesting. As one authority has observed, it is evi dent to all who have considered the subject with a knowledge of the con struction and character of these craft that a shot, even of large size, pene trating the huge gas reservoirs, is not likely to have any serious effect, for the gas would be liberated so slowly from an ordinary-sized hole that the vessel might not be seriously incon venienced, and even if eventually com pelled to land on account of the injury, might easily keep the air until it reach, ed friendly territory. To be effective, therefore, a projec tile to be used against airships must be capable of producing an opening in the envelope of very considerable size. The subject has not been overlooked uy those who make a study of military subjects, as is indicated...

KISSES FOR THE TURK THE BEST OUR SOLDIER BOYS CAN GIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

KISSES FOR THE TURK THE BEST OUR SOLDIER BOYS CAN GIVE. By D. W. McCay. "I was looking around for snipers and was rewarded by seeing a soldier raise his rifle and fire a little to my left. I threw him a kiss with a lump of lead hanging to it for luck."-An Austra lian soldier's letter from Gallipoli. A sniper took a snipe at me, but For tune made him miss, And, just to even matters up, I wafted him a kiss; My little message found its mark and left the beggar dead, For I sent it flying to him on a little bit of lead, 'Twas a token of affection that I sent to Mr. Turk, Just a small appreciation of his nasty, sniping work, And his mates before we finish will have reason more to know Of the special kind of kissos that Aus. traiian soldiers throw. I have dealt in different kisses since I was a little chap, And some of them were tame enough, but some were full of snap; I have kissed my Aunt Jemina, for I had to do it then, But thought I'd rather run a mile than tackle it again; When I grew...

LIVE STOCK IN HUNGARY [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

LIVE STOCK IN HUNGARY] The Buda Pestli correspondent of the Yorkshire "Podt" wrote in April: "Regarding the economic conditions I may mention, to sum up the situa tion, briefly, that at the meeting of the Legislative body of Buda Pesth the other day, it was officially stated that within four months from now there will not be any meat in the country. No cattle, sheep, etc., will be available by that time, for people got rid of their animals in view of the scarcity of fod der, and so in about four months we shall be entirely without meat." The condition of the cattle market the same week bore out this state ment to the full. Instead of the usual 5000 animals, only 2000 were brought to market, and the vendors charged 40 to 50 per cent, more for live animals than the week previously. The buyers, butchers, and army contractors left the market place in groups, excited, and. in despair, without buying any thing, and only the intervention of the authorities arranged matters. Subse quently t...

HORSE SHOW AT FRONT HOW OUR CAVALRY AMUSE THEMSELVES. Northern France. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

HORSE SHOW AT FRONT I HOW OUR CAVALRY AMUSE THEMSELVES. By W. Beach Thomas.' Northern France. I At the British front, which is length ening and deepening steadily, there are compensations even for those who are not fighting. No arm of the service is quite so eager for tlie real thing as the cavalry, who have had five months of inaction except when they volunteered, from a mixture of pure virtue and sheer boredom, for a share of trench work. : One of the most eminent of their lead i ers said a day or two ago, putting the ' cavalryman's sentiments in a nutshell, "I always did hate barbed wire from hunting days. Now 1 detest it." Some regard it as the one obstacle to ft capital steeplechase to Berlin. At the moment things are particu larly quiet for the cavalry. The horses were never fitter, nor, for that matter, the men. Both scent the battle from afar. You never saw man and mount quite so fit and eager; but both have to restrain their ardor and to practise peace within the sound of w...

CERTIFICATES OF UNFITNESS. They Did Their Beat. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

CERTIFICATES OF UNFITNESS. They Did Their Beat. The military authorities have decid ed to issue certificates of unfitness for service to rejected recruits. The world is not always held back by the badness of evil men; sometimes It la by the blindness and obstinacy of good men. Those who do not want the right to triumph at all are ofton no greater obstacles to progress than those who insist that there is no right way but their own. Many a woman has a fine carriage who never owned a horse. A handsome man ia generally spoiled, but it Is not women who have taught him to set a value upon his own charms. He has done that him self, of his owp accord.

TROUBLES OF A BRIDE[?] GROOM CONFUSION CAUSED BY CONFETTI AMUSING RESULT OF FRIENDS' PRACTICAL JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

TROUBLES OF A BRIDE GROOM CONFUSION CAUSED BY CONFETTI AMUSING RESULT OF FRIENDS' PRACTICAL JOKE. All Melbourne is laughing over the story o£ a discomfited bridegroom, which is published in one of the so biety papers this week. The bride groom, it appears, is an accountant at ti city hardware store. He is a staid kind of individual. The wedding was a quiet one, and he warned the few Mends w'ho 'were invited that he would certainly not appreciate any Such attention as confetti or rice throwing. Rather would he look with disfavor on such a proceeding-it was too playful for his liking. The guests agreed to meet the re quest, but they were not to be cheated of their fun. A conspiracy was soon on foot. By some covert means-prob ably a relative was in the joke-en trance was gained to the'room where the going-away attire of both bride and bridegroom was'kept in waiting for the time when the newly-married cou ple should seize the opportunity to slip away and change from their wedding ijttir...

ASTOUNDING LOVE TRAGEDY Girl an Unwilling Agent of Death. Rejected Sweetheart's Terrible Stratagem. A love tragedy of an extraordinary character took place at Stratford, Con. necticut, where by a maniacal strata gem a young member of a wealthy family induced his sweetheart, after she had broken off their engagement, to become a contributory agent to his own death. The actors in the tragedy were Ar thur Hearn Cowl, aged 22, a grandson of the late multi-millionaire merchant George A. Hearn, and Miss Emily Wheeler, the daughter of a wealthy banker. Cowl called at Miss Wheeler's resi dence recently, and she told him that she had finally decided not to marry, and returned the engagement ring he ' had given her some weeks ago. The rejected lover accepted the' ring with a smile and put it in his poc ket. Then he drew a string from in side his coat and asked Miss Wheeler to pull it. Wonderingly she did so, and simul taneously there came the report of a revolver and Cowl fell dead with a bul...

HOW GERMANY HATES BRITAIN WILL NOT FORGET. THE MONARCHS' UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

HOW GERMANY HATES BRITAIN WILL NOT FORGET. THE MONARCHS' UNION. Characteristically spiteful revenge lor the special treatment accorded the submarine pirate officers has been taken by tho Germans. A iist of 39 selected victims to be subjejeted to solitary confinement in German for tresses has reached London. Its au thors must have thumbed Burke's Peerage to discover the representa tives of the most distinguished Brit ish families incarcerated in its com pounds. They set themselves to strike at the officers of the Guards and other crack regiments. The Hohenzollerns have repeated the cry which arose at the French Revolution, "The aristocra tic first." Their Hate List touches nearly every ancient house in .

LETTER FROM Pte. T. A. SAXON. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 29 June 1915

LETTER FROM Pte. T. A. SAXON. The following are extracts re ceived in a letter this week from Private T. A. Saxon. It is written while on board ship, but from where, owing to the activity, of the censor, it is impossible to de cipher. So far we've had an excellent trip, and I suppose I had better tell you all about it from the be ginning, as far as the Censor will let me. We got a good send-off at Port Melbourne, and when the pier gates were thrown open at about dusk there was a great lot poured in on to the pier, but I could not see anyone I knew. The girls were throwing paper stream ers aboard and held on to them till the boat moved off and broke them. Flags and messages con   taining good wishes were thrown aboard. We were marched below and allotted to our messes--20 men to each table. After tea we set about slinging our hammocks on the hooks above the mess tables, and the sight was a rather strange one. Each man is allowed about I8 inches lateral space for his hammo...

AMERICA'S BEGINNINGS IN CAMPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

AMERICA'S BEGINNINGS CAMPHOR. A dozen years ago the United States Government was distributing broadcast throughout Florida a bul letin of immense import, setting forth the excellent results of a prolonged series of experiments in camphor raising in this mild climate, and urg ing that every citizen of the peninsu lar, whether rural or urban, should set out as many'camphor trees as the ground around his home would allow. If all one's space is taken up with food and fruit plants, the arguments proceeded, still there were the walks and roadways to be lined. And what is more beautiful, symmetrical or de lightfully umbrageous than the vivid ly green and gracefully branching camphor trees? The realisation had come homo to our nation, about that time, with es pecial force and significance, that Japan had a monopoly of the camphor trade; hence, a monopoly of une of the most important Binews of war. The propaganda waged at that time, both by bulletin, by experiment sta tions, and agents from ...

TRANSLUCENT GLASS BRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

TRANSLUCENT GLASS BRICKS. At a recent meeting of the illumin ating Engineers' Society one of tho> speakers made a novel but eminently practical suggestion in regard to the interior lighting of buildings. His re marks were as follow: "Not long since a resident owner called my attention to the fact that the front rooms of his home were in daytime the darkest ones in the house, notwithstanding the fact that these rooms were most used and the most important. The darkness was caused there-and in fact will he caused in any average residence-by the shielding effect of a large porch, and overhanging eaves. This is a very common condition, and it seems peculiar to me that use has not been made of prism plate-glass, or'ribbed sheets, in the form of skylights set in the verandah roof, to di rect the daylight against the face of the building and into the windows. Glass with a smooth up per side, and with prisms on its lower face, parallel^ to the building, would direct considerably more ligh...

SOLDIERS' BREASTPLATES. Armor for Our Fighting Men. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

SOLDI ERJ>' BREASTPLATES. Armor for Our Fighting Men. The newspaper report that armored breastplates are being worn by some of the troops In the present war is explained in "The Annotator's" depart ment of "American Medicine" (New York) on the theory that allusion Is made to steel shields carried by sol diers for use while lying down in tho field. Says the writer: Many years ago several inventors de veloped bullet-proof cloths or breast plates, and, in spite of much advcrtU ing, their suggestions^ were never adopted-much to the surprise of civilians. The reason is very simple. If the bullet is stopped its energy Is transmitted to the shield, which, in turn, delivers a blow to the soldier's body. The severity of the blow de pends upon the velocity of the shield, and if the shield is very light the chest-wall receives' more or less in jury. In order to be harmless tho shield must weigh at least 101b. It is a repetition of the old circus trick of striking with a sledge-hammer an anv...

It is the luck of the game. The wheat had to be got rogardlGBS of the risks of the business, and if a loss of £100,000 or so was made the millers who refused to Import should be asked to share it with the public.
