THE COSSACKS. ORIGIN OF THE CORPS. COMPOSITION AND UNIFORM. Ivan Stefanovitch writes interestingly on the subject of the Russian cavalry: [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 November 1914

THE COSSACKS; ORIGIN OF ,THE COR.PS. COMPOSITION AND UNIFORM. \ 'Ivan Stefanovitch writes interesting- I ly on the' subject of the Russian 1 cavalry:— I Apropos of the term "Cossack," : the meaning signified an armed man, j a coat( a sabre, a goat, etc. Speaking • generally, the Cossacks are a mixed j race of Tartar, Slavonic, and Circas-' ! sian blood, though some are of pure (Slav) Russian stock. They were very powerful in the fifteenth century, both Muscovy and Poland employing them to defend their boundaries. In times of peace, they are employed as outposts in Siberia, ! Central Asiaj and the Caucasus; as despatch riders, and guards in con voying politicals to exile in Siberia, etc. | The office of Ataman or I-Ietman is ' usually of one year's duration; but, among a democratic people, a Cos sack can be elected to any post, even the highest—that of Hetman, or chief. They are divided into several tribes, namely, the Don, Knieper (Ukraine), Kuban> and the Ural. There are also th...

SHE'D GRIN AND BEAR IT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 November 1914

SHE'D GRIN AND BEAR IT. Cried Maude, "My gown is cut so low, I am ashamed to wear it! | But though my back will make a show— I'll have to grin and bare it!" The correspondent of the "Liverpool Daily Post" at Ostend wrote:— "After I left the old man I talked to several rustics in a small beerhouse. Several glasses of even the innocuous local brew made them confidential, and they led me away to a slaugliter ( house. In this building the carcases , of twelve horses were hanging. All were tastefully flayed, cleaned, and ! dismembered, and were ready trussed ! for the butchers. To-morrow they will I be sold in • the shops of Ostend for | the dinners of 6the poor and middle | classes. Horseflesh looked as appe ; Using as beef, and I gather that nine ! of the above carcases were once the 1 proud mounts of the Uhlans. It is a source of great pride to the folk of | Snaeskerke that they have captured so much "excellent meat" from the Germans. Some of us are wondering how long ! the German Shi...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 November 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES There is a legend with Belgians that If the belfry -in Bruges is ever de stroyed, the hopes of the city will fall beyond hopes of redemption. It runs: "In the market-place of Bruges Stands the belfry old and, brown, Thrice consumed and thrice re builded Still it watches o'er the town." As the rhyme says the belfry has al ready been three times partly destroy ed by fire, but each time has been re built. The Germans • have invested Bruges, but the fate 'of the belfry has not been stated. : The custom of kissing when they meet has been suspended among most European monarchs. Apropos of those Milk-Ohs who have been hauled before the Beak for selling watered milk, there is a yarn told by the irrepressible Lauder. "A Dundee farmer, who lived not far from my old home in bonnie Scot land." says Harry, "employed a farm hand named Sandy. 'Here, Sandy,' said he one day, 'gang roon and gie the coos a cabbage each; but min' ye gie the biggest to the coo that gies , the maist...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Dpmand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT. The local representative (Mr A. Savige) for Messrs McPhail Bros, and Co. intimates by adve...

How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. . Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to Jay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you will effectually damn your town and district.

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914

Toot Your Own Horn, A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, hut none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and watch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The pcacock spreads his tail, and squeaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece [ that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise. 1

Jones (secretary to" the Moe and District Association) has received a communication from the Richmond Cricket Club, notifying him that the invitation extended to that club on the occasion of the Association team's visit to Richmond, has been accepted, and that a match is suggested to take place at Moe on Christmas and Boxing Day. . When Ballarat College met Gram mar School at cricket on Friday (says the "Herald"), Doney,, of Ballarat College, opened by scoring two runs. He was then bowled by Geyle. None of his 10 comrades added to the score. The Grammar School had previously made 167. The unplayable Grammar School bowlers were Robin, who took six wickets for no runs, and Geyle, who got four for two. Whilst playing cricket at Garfield on Saturday last, J. Walsh (of the Drouin team) met with a severe ac-, cident. He was fielding at long-on, and, when endeavoring to catch a ball, the sun dazzled him, with the result that he misjudged the ball, which came with terrific fo...
