GASSED. AGONIES OF OUR BRAVE MEN. HOW. THE POISON GAS WORKS. DESCRIBED BY AN ARMY DOCTOR. 1Ve have received the following let ter from Captain W. JIcC. AVanklyn, R.A.M.C., Deputy-Assistant Director ?of Medical Services, describing the tortures of our brave stalwarts at tbe front as the result of the gas attacks of the Huns north of Ypres: - May-3. Dear Gibson,-I am writing to tell you about the poison gases used by the enemy from my own observation. It might well be said, "Devilry, thy name is Germany!" Let me take you around a hospital, so that you may judge for yourself. Come this way down a dusty, earthy slope, all trodden into bare earth by months of trallic of sick and wounded. At the top of the slope the roadway divides to form a loop; both roadway and the loop are full of ambulances slowly moving, descending, ascending, constantly circulating, halting, as if at a great, grim reception. AH you can see as they brush past you and look in at the back is the wooden stretcher handl...

JAPAN'S HARVEST TIME, BIG BENEFITS FROM THE WAR. GOODS IN AUSTRALIA. The absence of German supplies from the Australian markets has given [an opportunity to the Japanese, and the success that has tended their ef forts to create new industries is strik ing. Included in the articles of Japanese manufacture now coming into promin ence in our markets are those of glass and crockery.

While the scarcity of dyes has deferred-trade in cotton stuffs somewhat, flannelettes and kindred classes of goods are being sold stead ily.

AFTER THE WAR. THE CHANCES OF MARRIAGE. A PROBLEM FOR THE GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

AFTER THE WAR. THE CHANCES OF MARRIAGE. A PROBLEM FOR THE GIRLS. When we read from day to day the long . list of casualties, one of the thoughts which occur is that surely this enormous waste o£ life must bring about even a greater disparity than exists between the number of males and females. In considering the matter, the natural conclusion Is that thousands of women who would in all probability have become wives and mothers are now likely to live a life of celibacy, and at the end of the chapter to leave neither husband nor children to mourn for them. This thought has been beautifully expressed by the Rev. Norman McLean in his recent book, "The Great Discovery": - "In nameless graves," he remarks, "lie the dream children which will never be born. This criminal sealing up of the fountains of life-how can we bear it?" According to the latest figures avail able the proportion of males to females in British countries varies from about 90 to 95 in the 100. Assuming that there was the ...

BALMATTUM. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

BALMATTUM. Sowing is almost completed, and fully 50 per cent more acreage is under crop than in previous years. Early sown looks particularly well and healthy, and rapid growth is noticeable. Should the season bo up to normal, prospects will bo most encouraging. Tho total rainfall for Juno is 101 points, number of days rain fell, 15. Such a lino rain, accom panied with nice mild weather, is practically tho saving of a. great amount of stock. Tho rainfall for first, six munths of tho year is 10.G7 inches. This being almost up to the wliolo year, of 1911, when tho rain registered was 11.40 inches; so present pros pects are brighter, although much below the average tor Jiist six months of the ycai\ which amounts under normal conditions, to about 11 inches.

SYBIL MANY-FATHERS. By Ashley Milner. I It was oh' the very day of the find ing of the strange baby that Jerry 'cole proposed matrimony to Mrs. Fletcher. Jerry proposed in the after noon; the baby of mystery- was dis covered that same evening. A proposal o£ matrimony, Whilst be ginning as romance, may end in any thing-from a kiss to a theological set-to. In Jerry's case it end,ed in a one-sided pecking match. Jerry, ex pecting to stroke a dove, found he had ruffled a vulture. The Widow Fletch er swooped down on him before the last quavering word had left his lips. "Marry you?" demanded Mrs. Flet cher, arms akimbo and eyes aglare. "And why should I marry you, I'd like to know?" Jerry slowly twirled-his hat by the I brim, and grinned. "If it comes to that, why shouldn t you?" he ventured. "What's there about you for any woman to love?" demanded the trucu lent widow. 'Your face, or y'r for tune, or the wits of ypu?" Jerry looked down "at the red ^ of Mrs. Fletcher's kitchen tiles. "I'd...

NOTES ON T!!E WAR. Tlio amazing performances o£ tho Australians and the gallantry displayed by tliem in the Dera tions in tlio Gallipoli peninsula, have, of course, the most interest for us in Australia, and wo scan the ever growing casualty lists with increasing seriousness.

The disasters : among these who in some way or. another were connectcl with ""this small town have been very grcuk, and there are many sore and sor rowful hearts among us.

III. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

Tho town received the news with scandalised astonishment, and wanted to know what the authorities were do ing, and why such and such an insti tution hadn't been appealed to. A butcher who had once sent "a shilling to Doctor Barnardo'a Homes was very hitter about it. But the committee .ield solidly together, flourishing tlieir 4eed of gift from the parent as the charter o£ their foster-parentage. The police took copious notes, put a 'Found" notice outside the railings, reported the matter to each other, and dozed off again. The Vicar, good man, 1 did his best to secure possession of Sybil Liza, but was rebuffed. And as the child always appeared well-dress ed and cared for, opinion gradually veered around and decided that the patrons of The George were perhaps not such a bad lot after all. True, Fisher's six children looked raggeder than ever, and Mrs. Ironside turned her venerable stuff dress and sold her new one to pay for the better feeding of Ironside junior, but Sybil Liza | grew...

Tom Dawkins, once of Burnley, and hla mate; Fisher, the big carter; Larry Ironside, of tt» tmuos ing manner; Benjamin Steele, who had lately done six months for wife beating; Dodd, Oram, Breedon and the rest. Some of them nodded as Jerry walked in. "Come into a fortune, Jerry? ' Fisher Vmzarded. . " u "Peeling a hit queer, that s all, said Jerry thioatily. "Pint, miss." Fisher returned to his audience of Ironside, who was explaining French military tactics with the aid of the [proprietor's map-which may, it may be noted, contained only British flags, all of which were perforating the black circle called Berlin. This was patriot ism, according to The George school of citizenship. "Listen!" said Dawkins' mate. "There's a child crying. A baby."

SOLDIER'S TRIPLET BOYS. "Kitchener," "French," and "Jellicoe" in Incubators. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

SOLDIER'S TRIPLET BOYS. "Kitchener," "French," and "Jellicoe" in Incubators. What will a soldier at- the front say when he hears the news that his wife has given birth to triplets, all boys, at a village called Pallion, near Sunderland? They are honnie little babies, too, although they were born prematurely. Directly the happy event took place the triplets were hur ried off to the Children's Hospital for special care and treatment. There they were placed in the baby incuba tors, and are thriving splendidly un der their novel conditions. As be comes a patriotic home, they have been christened Kitchener, Jellicoe, and French. Exaggeration is neither thoughtful, wise, nor safe. It is a proof of the weakness of the understanding, or the want of discernment of him that utters it; so that, even when he speaks the truth, he soon finds it is received with suspicion or utter unbelief. It is easy to be careful of the feel ings of those about whom we care little. Should we not do as much for t...

She advanced tru culently and turned a red face and a pair of very bright eyes to the assem bly. "Where's that precious committee?" she demanded pantingly.

ON BOARD A TROOPSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 July 1915

ON BOARD A TROOPSHIP. By Pte T. A. SAXON. Wednesday--I was on picket at one of the hatchways this morning watching the mess orderlies trying to get down the slippery stairways with the break fast of stew, porridge, and tea. Each one would spill a little greasy stew on the steps as he went down, consequently the steps became more and more slip pery. Then they started to tumble. I saw three of them come down "ker wallop." One chap slipped near the top step and his stew dish went flying and hit the man below him in the back, bringing him down too. There was stew, porridge, tea, and orderlies all   mixed up in a greasy mass at the foot of the stairs. There was quite a lot of good food lost in this way to-day, and I wouldn't be a mess orderly for any thing. Each man pays them a bob a week to draw the meals, wash-up, etc. We haven't seen the other ship since early yesterday morning. Much spec ulation as to whether we stop at ______. and it's common talk that we don't stop til...

THE BOND. By Constance Enne. ! They were very young when they married; very modern and up-to-date, and they had all the happiness mousy could buy, being quite rich as the world goes. She was small and fair and loved all the gaiety and sunshine and laughter she could cram into ex istence-a beautiful, wayward, very expensive butterfly wife. 1-Ie was good-looking, too, well set-up,, and tan , ned by the sun and wind, and he ador ed iter. 5 They had planned out what they assured each other would be an ideal 'existence. She said she thought there were heaps of things in the marriage ! service that ought to have been left out. | "And what, exactly, d'you mean by that?" lie asked her curiously a few days before the wedding. She sat in one of the big chairs in her mother's drawing-room puffing up saucily into liis face the blue rings from the cignr . ette lie'd just lighted for her. j "Well," said she, and puckered her i brow a little, "the word 'Obey,' for instance.

SAVING THE VENUS OF MILO. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915

SAVING THE VENUS OF MILO. During the war of 1S70, when the German army drew near the French capital, one of the first messages the Parisians took was to place the art treasures of the Louvre in safety. The paintings of Raphael, Titian, ! Paolo. Veronese, llembrandt, and Ru- , bens were carefully packed and ship ped to Brest. There they could, if necessary, have been put on ship- j board and taken from the country, j It was not so easy to save the ( pieces of statuary, for their weight and fragility made them difficult to . handle; but the French determined ; that the famous Venus of Milo, at j lease, should not fall into the hands of the Prussians. So they took her j .'own from her pedestal and laid her j in a casket carefully padded and j wrapped. At night the casket was | taken out through a secret door and hidden secretly in the cellar of the police prefecture, at the end of a se cret passage. They walled in the casket and cleverly gave the wall an appear ance of great age and di...
