MR. ARKINS' ENLISTMENT;': The IMevertire correspondent of the Warren "Herald" :—"I notice in a district contemporary that the Pre mier tried to get the Labor Leagues in the Castlereagh electorate to re frain from selecting a candidate for the next election, on the ground that Mr Arkins was going to enlist for the ! purpose of addressing others to do likewise. We have plenty of return ed soldiers to conduct recruiting ad dresses, and if Mr Arkins is in earn est let him don the khaki and get to the front like Messrs. Larkin, Braund, Fern, and others of our brave legislators. No doubt if the sitting member embarks for the front the Laborites of the electorate 'will favorably consider the advisability of withholding the ballot for selection."

SLEEPING OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
SLEEPING OUT. We have all read of the wonderful curew effected by the open-air treatment of tlie sol dier patients in tlie field hospitals and in the open wards of the new Cambridge Hos pital. People are finding out daily, or rather nightly I should say, the Curative powers of the fresh air on the over-tired or troubled brain. When I speak of sleeping out, I do not mean sleeping under the heated roof of a verandah, beside a brick wall, which has been absorbing and accumulating heat all day, and which radiates it at night, to the detriment of really refreshing and nourishing sleep. I mean sleeping out under the great dome, with all the wonderful sights and sounds of thy night world above and around us. I do not know which is the more potent for good, the ojI, fresh air or the soothing sights and sounds of the night. Perhaps it is the combination, : but the effect is wonderful, even magical, in producing sleep. The eool air is as a covei'let to the tired body, and an interest in the e...
