CONFESSIONS OF A TATTOOIST. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
! CONFESSIONS OF A TATTOOIST. There*is a boom in tattooing in the I st End of London,, according to Mr. Edward. Lovett, of the Folk Lore Society. The booing is not among soldiers and j.piitifs', girls of the East-Erid, it 1 being a xapidly grawing -fashion, when a local belle walks, out with a yoxing man, to have his nam© tat tooed on her arm.

GARVIN'S OPINION. KEY OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
GARVIN'S OPINION. KEY OF THE WAR. I "The enemy no longer hopes to win,'7 writes Mr. J. "L. Garvin in the '' Observer.' >'The Germans know that there is no longer any possibility of that. But they hope a^vd reckon that a year hence the Allies would be no nearer the attainment of any of thbir declared objectives. General exhaustion and weakness, with political divisions and popular discontent, would bring about, they think, an inconclusive peace, relatively favorable to the Central Empires and Turkey, while leaving Germany free to plot-the destruction of Brit ain alone in a subsequent conflict. "That is the German plan, and that is jvhat wc have utterly to defeat. We never can defeat it completely unless, by ensuring the. mastery of the Balkans, the Allies ensure the total overthrow both of Turkey and Austria in order to settle thoroughly with Germany - afterwards. "Upon the power with which the new War Board grasp this counterplan for the Allies, and upon the vigor and determinati...
MOTHER WORD. I. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
MOTHER - WORD. I. My strong soil .said: "I will go forth, Challenge the world, aiid find its, worth." Forth he wandered into the west; Toiled and burned, and knew no rest. , Out of the west he turned him south, Where the wind and the iee ure blood in the mouth. \. " j Out of the south he fared to the east;. Lived by the sail, fought with the beast. And over the world, east, south, or north; Where'er he ventured found blood and worth. Then he came home where he began, And this I saw: My son a man. n. My son had arms like iron bands. Muscles of steel to bind his hands; Strength had I given him? blood and bone; Pride that was stark, to stand alone. Deep in his heart the love-fire burned, And ever and ever to me he turned. Love-fire, long lit, thou shalt rise to flame, For a word and a name that is not my name; Thou shalt blaze in a night!—when the sword of war Ig screaming insistent, calling far! Take thou thy sword, if sword it must be; Take thou the blood^thou hadst of me; Forth, for...

THE NATION'S BABIES. &lt;' INFANTILE MORTALITY IS A CHAL LENGE TO MOTHERHOOD." j "Mymission is to ask the women of Eng land to come out and help .us in this task of social reform rendered doubly important by the war." ' j In these words Mr. "Walter. Long, President of the Local Government Board, appealed to ! | a crowded meeting at the Guildhall, London, recently, to discuss ways and means of pre j venting the alarming increase of infantile mortality. Letters expressing the sympathy of the Queen and the Qu^enl-Mother were read, while numerous public bodies and wo men 's societies sent representatives to the i gathering. Mr. Long said women all over the country were approaching him in quest of war woTk. There was not enough so-called war w»rk to go round. But in the saving of 100,000 babies lost to the nation every year women would find war work of a rea], if unpicturesque, de scription.

CONFESSIONS OF A GERMAN : ■ GIRL. , ' . , ______ Bof^^the war, to marry an Englishman bestowed a greater distinction on a German j woman than to have one's, frocks from Paris. The German girl with an English husband ranked higher than she who had won that great prizo of the marriage lottery—a Horr ■ Lieutenant. I well remember how my girl friends looked at me with envy when my engagement to an Englishman was announced. And 1 suspect them of harboring these feelings still in secret despite the scorn poured out lavisnly since ! August, 1914, on their whilom friend for what they have now discovered to be "base de sertion of her Fatherland." The fact being "that'there is not one of them who would not have basely deserted lier Fatherland with a light heart beforo the war in order to marry an Englishman.

CORRESPONDENCE "BANDAR" AND ROUTE MARCHES. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
" BANDAR " AND ROUTE :: MARCHES. (To the Editor.) Sir,—-Your correspondent," f( Ba;n» dar,7' still seems to b© under tlie mis taken impression that bocausa I am opposed to the route "march idea, I hold that men, and more men are not ueeded, and that I am professing to" know more than Lord Kitchener, "and a few other nonentities." " Bandar's " l*gic, or rather, wast of it, is well illustrated in the last para graph of his letter ia your issue of the 18th ultimo. Every route march has not been acknowledged by the Military to have been " highly sucoessfal," as your correspoudeut asserts. The pi ess has : certainly given publicity to state ments to that effect, but as the said statements were writtea by the per sons who were ruuhing the route march, little credence can be given to such : obviously misleading reports-. The Military authorities are opposed to the scheme (X am ia. a position to know), and they do not, as " Ban dar "asserts, supply complete equip ment for every recruit. " B...

LYING LIKE FLATHEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
LYING LIKE FLATHEADS. 1' It was an exciting half-hour or so, as we lay out there like fatheads and dug ourselves in, scarcely raising our heads, as the bullets were biting round and throwing, up . little clouds of dust into our eyes. Scores of our boys were killed in the firing line and close up. We dragged the dead and wounded behind us, so there appeared to be two lines of men. Many of them were firing away in high glee; in fact, most of us kept up a hot covering to allow the supports to come up.

BULLETS CLIP "FINGERS. .'''Three bullets or rather the steel oil' them, stuck in the wood work of my rifle. Another ripped the seam of my water bottle, and let water run clown ..my leg; and a third clipped along the tips of my fingers. ''As we closed iu on the Turkish trenches^ the enemy 's machine and rifle fire became in tensified,- but the shrapnel died down a lot. Hundreds of Turks were leaning from their trenches and running towards Krithia. This was in our direct front, but the enemy on our flanks poured in a withering enfilading fire. '-"Many of us fixed bayonets as we ran, and prepared to run in with the steel. JWlien the order came to 'halt' and dig ourselves in many of our chaps went almost frantic- We bnow now it was eaused by the slow British advance on our left, owing to the fact that the French had been held up on the. right flank, and that the Turks were enfilading us.

—,— — J "GO IT, AUSTRALIANS." I "Our chaps were howling out, 'Go it, Aus tralia.' The safest tiling to do, was to keep from bunching. One was bumped and jostled about at times like the favorite coming through the field in the Melbourne Gup. We seemed to, float on air—at least , that was inj sensation. Brigadier-General J. W. McCay (wno was wounded there), estimated our losses at 3974 linen, out of a brigade of close on. ncoo. They had all gone down in about 20 minutes, so you can imagine what it was like
