NOTHING IN THE PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

NOTHING IN THE PAPER. We hear the paper come In the dark before the dawn, And we wonder shall we get it, wet from off the lawn, Or shall we wait until with morning tea we're fortified, Before with indrawn breath we read tho names of those who've died. Last year, when early morning brought the news of yesterday, We never heard the thud unless it ? hit the scraper; We didn't care a bit for what the edi tors might say There really was so little in the paper. But now when early morning brings the news of yesterday, We do not haste to find .the "Special line" of any draper; Wo long with tear-dimmed eyes and hearts too full for words, and pray For the days when there was nothing .

It is as well that those at liome should realise the almost incredible spirit of savagery which animates the Germans. During the fighting north ol Ypres a Prussian officer's life was spared by our men, even in the heat of a charge, and in spite of the exas peration caused by the enemy's latest method of making war, and he was made prisoner. While he was being escorted to the rear the party passed some of our men who were lying in agony on the ground, fighting for breath, their lungs filled with fumes, lie stopped, looked at them, burst out laughing and, pointing to the prostrate forms, said. "What do you think of that?" There have been not a few wound ed prisoners, also chieiiv of the Prus sian Guard defeated in front of Ypres in November, who have behaved in hospital with the ferocity of wild beasts. The scenes that have been enacted during the last few days, the sight of their comrades crawling...

WHEN A FELLER IS OUT OF A JOB. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

WHEN A FELLER IS OUT OF A JOB. All nature is sick rrom lier heels to her hair Wen a feller is out of a job. She is all out of kilter an' out o£ repair Wen a feller is out of a job. , Ain't no juice in the earth an' no Bait in the sea, . . Ain't no ginger in life in this land o£ the free, An' the universe ain't what it's crack ed up to he, Wen a feller is out of a job. What's the good of blue skies an* blossomin' trees Wen a feller is out of a job? Wen your boy has large patches on both o£ his knees, An' a feller is out of a job. The patches, I say, look so big to yer eye That they sliet out the lan'scape an' cover the sky. An' the sun can't shine through 'em, the best it can try, Wen a feller is out of a job. Wen a man has no part in the work of the earth, Wen a feller is out of a job. He feels the whole blunder of the mistake of his birth Wen a feller is out of a job. He feels he's no share in the whole of the plan; That he's got the mitten from Nature's own han'; That he's a rejec...

HEROINES OF THE WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

HEROINES OF THE WIRE. A Belgian girl in the environs of Liege, from ,which the Germans were bombarding the city, sat at a private telephone, overlooked accidentally by the besiegers when,.all other tele phones were destroyed! and after each return shot from,the fortress loolted calmly to see where it fell and tele phoned to correct the range: "A little more to the Hglit." "Too far to the' left." "Not so high." Puzzled at first by the amazing accuracy of the Bel gian- gunners, the Germans at length bccame suspicious and investigated. The girl was discovered, arrested, tried and, according to the hard rules of war, shot. The German officer who told the story, and who approved of the sen tence, expressed the highest admira tion, not only for her daring work as a spy, but for the unflinching courage with which she met her fate. Yet she was no braver than literally scores of heroines of peace-telephone girls who, as the company records show, have accepted life and death risks as a matter...

ELEVEN SOLDIER SONS MOTHER'S SACRIFICE. Surely a World's Rc;ord. To give eleven sons to the Empire's cause is surely a record sacrifice for any mother. Yet it has been cheer fully made by Mrs. Leane, of Rose street, Prospect, Adelaide. Three sons are already at the front, and the remainder are either in camp or serv ing with the naval and military forces in Australia. Her only daughter, who resides In Western , Australia, lias qualified for the St. John Ambulance Association' badge, and at present is matron to the boy scout troops of Boulder City, Western Australia, where she spends most of her spare time training the boys who will be the men and soldiers of the future. Just previous to the Adelaide "Her ald" reporter's entrance Jlrs. Leane had received a telegram notifying her that her "baby" Ben had been wound ed in the fighting in the Dardanelles, but there was no wail of anguish and no note of despair. "I know he'll do his duty," was all she said. "I want my sons, but my country...
