LEFT BEHIND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916
LEFT BEHIND. When the rich man dies we are prone to think on the (oily of human greed; he tolled and worried to get more chink than a mortal could" ever need. For years and years he had no repose, no rest from the beastly grind; and now when down to the tomb ho goes, ho leaves all his junk behind. He leaves his bonds and he leaves his stocks, and the deeds that ho prized so high; and he leaves his gems an Ills shining rocks—all junk when the rich mon die! "Of no use then to the plutocrat are the markets, weak or strong; for a suit of clothes and a white cravat are all that he takes along. Like Lazarus, to an open ditch, he goes, with his wreath of (lowers, and then he's mourned by the idle rich for seven and twenty hours. Not long, not long shall the teardrops flow, or the dead be kept In mind, for the plutocrats, when at last they go, leave all of such things behind. Few earnest mourners shall weep above the graves that the rich men hold; they never wanted such stuff as love—their ...

I WONDER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916
- I WONDER. When war has reached its ending 'And Europe peace preserves, Will Sue, who showed much promise In sewing shirts for Tommies, Again be condescending Enough to darn "reserves"? Or will she And that mending Is harmful to her nerveo? When stilled is warfare's pother And peace has come at length, Will Pa, who worked unceasing At ammunition piecing, Find beating rugs lor mother la too much for his strength, And breaking coal a bother. When peace has dawned, at length? When guns have ceased their thunder And piping peace doth reign, Will Jack, who used to rally At five o'clock reveille, Find nine o'clock, I wonder, A bally sort of strain: And when he's called, creep under The eiderdown again? When all the war is finished And everyone Is good, \ Will daily paper terrors Confess prophetic errors, And hide their heads diminished As' all false prophets should? Ah, no! They'll say It finished Just wh®n they said it would. A; conversation In the trenches:— Private Doug&l McTa...
BOORT MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. TRUSTEES COMPELLED TO ACT. NEW COMMITTEE APPOINTED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916
BOORT MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. TRUSTEES COMPELLED TO ACT. new committee appointed. With the passing of the old year, to be exact, with the last stroke of the clock at midnight on December 31st, 1915, the Boort Mechanics' Institute ceased to exist. It passed away peacefully ; quietly one might say ; no one was disturbed, and those hcroic, encrgetic, and pro gressive members of the cominittec were relieved of their vast respon sibilities. The end was sudden, but the general public will be pleased to learn of the peaceful nature of the "passing away." It was indeed a solemn moment in the history and development of the town, and, in particular, the institute itself. It can truthfully be said that life is short ; it can aptly be described, "The Brevity of Human Life." So far as the writer is able to ascertain, the president, vicc-prcsident, or secretary did not shed any tears, but took the affair quite philoso phically ; it camc as a matter of course ; it was a sign of the times ; so let it...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916
Ladies' Letter. The periscope bat is a novelty we may expect at any moment, for it has made its appearance in America. In Chicago it caused quite a sensation. That "three pretty young women wear ing the periscopo bonnet came near being mobbed by a curious crowd" is ! asserted by ono newspaper, it is pretty safe to conclude the writer is masculine, 'tor no woman would talk about bonnets nowadays, lie goes on to describe it, and says "It is not used lor the purpose of sighting creditors In the ofling, but st'rves as a sort ol conning tower which the unattached young woman may "use l£ she feels that a long, low, rakish male craft is approaching with the Intention of firing a smile, across her bows." A tiny mirror is tucked at an attractive and innocent angle in the brim, so that it reflects the actions of pedes trians in the'rear, wid the wearer can take action accordingly. Should she glimpse a smart young man preening himself in a suggestive fashion, sfie is warned in time, and can ha...

The Ugly Duckling. HOW BILLY CAME ON. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916
The Ugly Duckliog. HOW BILLY CAME ON. IJy Adam M'Cay in the Sydney "Sun." A cable message oi the week says that Mr. Hughes has gone to ojic of Ixmdon's most eminent aurists, who has hopes of being.able to Improve Ills patient's hearing. That, of . course, Is a piece of very good news, for the Prime Minister's infirmity of_ deafness must often have been exas perating to himself. Certainly at ^imes it has proved exasperating to others. ^ Not so long ago Mr. Hughes told a group of pressmen or a- man known to us all, who was importuning him with "representations" of an1 embarrassing kind, because It was not easy to reply as he desired, and still be polite. When the Prime Minister wants to be polite ho can be singularly so. When he doesn't—but that is another matter. Regarding his indefatigable interviewer, he said to us with a grin, "I don't know whether he thinks mo the deafest man in the world or the stupidest; but it's one or the other; for whenever he came to tlie point I answered a...

NORTHERN DISTRICT STANDARD with which U incorporated the Boort Standard, Koronj Vale Lance, and Quam batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, Match 30. COMPULSORY SERVICE ADVOCATED. By a majority so large that the opposition acccptcd defeat on the voices, the delegates attending the A.N.A. ccnfcrcnce carried the motion submitted by the Board of Directors urging the Government to introduce conscription. This is worth noting, for the delegates arc men young and old, rich and poor, men amongst whom arc employers and employed, Liberalsand Laboritcs. In other words, the delegates are fairly representative Victorians who, so far as conscription is concerned, come together in quite accidental fashion, without collcctivc pre positions or prejudices of any sort. Probably, they spoke and voted much as any soo citizens taken hap hazard in any part of the State would speak and vote. Possibly, Mr Wise, may have in fluenced the tone of the debate to som...

From Various Sources. When King O'Malley was seeking the suffrages of the enlightened elec tors ol Encounter Bay In South Aus tralia he made the women's vote his long suit, and used all manner o£ de vices to appeal to tho feminine In stinct. It is said there wasn't a baby romalned unkissed by him through out the length and breadth of his electorate. One day ho walked up to an impos ing-looking house where about a uozeu children were playing about tlio garden. "This," thought the candidate, "is an opportunity to make an impres sion.' • 'So he at once began to Ingratiate himself with the kiddies. Shortly after, a middleaged lady came out of the house. "I was just admiring the children," said the King as he patted the cra nium of a curly-headed boy. i"ho lady suilled benignly. "I came to see your husband," said the O'MaJley; "is he at home?" "I have no husband," replied tho lady abruptly. "No husband," said the candidate, with an overwhelming affectation of sympathy. "I am sorry. Have ...

Problems of Endurance. NEXT TEN MONTHS WILL TELL. The Allies believe that by spring the Germans will probably be com pelled to shorten their lines some where. But such a step, the evacua tion of Franco, Belgium or Poland, I will be the signal to all Europe—to the world—that the end Ib In sight It may come In April, .but It must cpme before Autumn; that Is the Al lied calculation on which the states men of four great nations are staking all. But attrition of men Is only half; there Is the question of food and of money. Germany is suffering—Iiar den's word for this—because of food shortage; she is suffering from econo mic .paralysis resulting from the blockade, and she Is compelled to find money in sums disproportionate to her resources, compared with Great Bri tain and France, when she has to act as the banker for Turkey and Aus tria. Add to the falling of men the hardships and perils incident to eco nomic and commercial paralysis and you have a conspectus of Allied cal culation. Tho...

CORRESPONDENCE. BUILDING A STORE. To the Editor. Sir,—My attention has been directed to a striking item of cor respondence (appearing in your last issue) calculated to brand tbe farmers of Barraport as a.most un principled collection of human beings, who do not even respcct the right to live and let live. It is the work of one who has not the courage to sign his name, but who choose rather, while Hnder cover of a nom de plume, to tip his pen with venom, and proceed to indulge in a most carping and illogical criti cism. As one who was partly in strumental in bringing about the state of affairs, to which Mr "Live and Let Live" refers and criticises, I feel that to allow this letter to remain unanswered wouid be un worthy of the farmers of Barraport or of their association, with which I have had to most reluctautly sever my connection. Without wishing' in any way to become embroiled in a newspaper con troversy respecting the merits of co-operation, or the friendship of • the general st...
