AUSTRALIAN APPETITES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 July 1915
AUSTRALIAN APPETITES. The Commonwealth Statistician, Mr. G. H. Knibbs, has been endeav ouring to gauge the capacity of the average Australian appetite. His data has been supplied by 392 (ami lies, 206 of which are of strict tee total principles, and 130 of which do not possess any smokers. Ninety one of the families had no expendi ture for Bports and amusements, and the remainder spent an tverage only of 1/1 per week on recreation. He shows that on an average weekly ex penditure on food per family of 30/3 one-fifth, or 6/1, iB for meat, 3/5 for butter and cheese, and 2/10 each for milk or bread. He proceeds to anal yse the results to show the weekly expenditure for food per head accord ing to sex and age. Ho estimates that it costs 8/7 per week to supply a male over 17 years of age with food, as against 6/10 for a male be tween 13 and 16 years of age, ns against 6/ for a female between the same ages, and so on.
A CURIOUS SUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 July 1915
A CURIOUS SUIT. A curious exposition of callousness and greed was recently made in a civil Buit brought against a Colorado surgeon. He became interested in the case of a cripple whom he found beg ging in the Btreet, and by an opera tion requiring great skill removed his disability. The relatives of the cripple promptly brought suit againat the physician for removing their means of support, claiming that, as a cripple, the youth had brought them in an average of £1 daily, while now they were compelled to support him until he could gain the means of earning his living. The Judge promptly dismissed the suit on hearinc the case for the prosecution.
COLDSTREAMER HERO. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 July 1915
C0LD8THBAMEU HERO. "I only took my chance and did my duty to save my comradea." It in thus that Private F. W. Dodson, of the 2nd Coldstream Guards, modestly describes the act for which he has been recommended for the V. C.

After they had been there an hour, the fop suddenly lifted, and the three men were fired on at close range by the Germans, One man was killed, one wounded badly, one crawled back. "I didn't know how to get the wounded man back," says Captain Follett, "to I had to call for u volunteer, and a reservist, Dodson, at once responde ' ' went out and fetched him, amu. ul of bullets."

Dookie District Ladies Red Cross Society. The Euchre Party and Dance. A Brilliant Success. Large Attendance. The euchre party and dance held in the Victoria Hall on Wednesday night last week, under the auspices of the Dookie District Ladies Red Cross Society was most successful, both from a financial as well as a numerical point of view. The first part of proceedings, which commenced by the assemblage singing God Save the King, was devoted to card-playing. Tho hall was brilliantly illumi nated and elaborately decorated with evergreens and pot plants, intermingled with streamers, flags and banners. During a short interval, the drawing of tho art union for the bag of wheat (which was the gift of Mrs. Johnston and Sons, to be disposed of in aid of the funds) was conducted, the winning ticket for which was held by Miss D. Clugston, of Cosgrove. An artis tic cushion (the work and gift of Mrs. G. W. Rowlands) was also disposed of, the winner being Mr. T. McSweeney. The hall Laving been cl...
WORLD-WIDE NOTES. TOMMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 July 1915
WORLD-WIDE NOTES. 1 TOMMIES. ? A. '? u ii (says a writer in the "Star") I have been on intimate terms with the officers and men of pretty well every unit_ in the British Army since lSSS, I have yet to find the soldier who protests against the use of the word "Tommy" as apply ing to himself or his comrades. What he does object to is being described by the "superior" person as "only a Tommy." Every non-com. in tho junior Service uses "Tommies" and "Troops" as interchangeable terms. I hnve heard even commanding offi cers use the term to the sergeant major. And Tommy himself speaks or his civilian chums as "civvies," his commanding officer is the "old man" or the "bloke," and he him self is probably "ginger" or "spud" or "nobby" to his comrades. Even dignified Highlanders accept the gen eral description "Jocks" without re monstrance. But while Tommy At kins has very little, if any, egotism, let a stranger speak slightingly of his regiment, and the offender will be made to regret his ill...

HANGING IN SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 5 August 1915
HANGING IN SPACE. As .1 general servant of fourteen years of age I was living with a schoolmistress. As she was out nvj-st days I was very often alone in the house. One day I had to buy some meat for dinner, and forgot to take the latchkey with me, so that X was un able to get in again. There was a ladder handy, so I put it against an open bed-room window and climb ed up. When nearly at the top, the ladder slipped ! I managed to grasp the inside sill just in time to save myself. I dragged myself into the bod-room, and fainted. A neighbour who saw it happen was" nearly as frightened as I was myself.

Heavy Artillery. THE SUPPLY OF SHELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 5 August 1915
Heavy Artillery. THE SUPPLY OF SHELLS. The chief factor in deciding thia war will be the superiority on one 6ide or the other of heavy artillery, writes Mr. Hilairc Belloc in the "Daily Sketch." There are three things that give one party superiority in its heavy artillery over another. The handling of the pieces ; The number of the pieces (includ ing the power of relining worn rifl ings and replacing lost pieces), and Third, the supply of ammunition. The handling of guns is a. matter of talent and natural temperament as much as any other art, and the Allies in the West are now clearly proved the superiors of the enemy in that art. The refitting of guns and the pro duction of new guns would be an equally essential consideration were there not this curious relationship between guns and ammunition nowa days ; thnt you can produce a gun more easily and more quickly than you can produce the ammunition. it will need in a few weeks. It is there fore the third point which is really the crux...

The Chameleon, i Iii his brightly written volume, "African Adventure Stories," Mr. J. Aiden Loring, who accompanied the ltooseveit African Expedition us one of the three field naturalists, has an interesting passage about a strange reptile, "very common in certain sections of Africa," called the horned or "rhinocerous" chameleon. "This creature," says Mr. Loring. "ir> about eight inches long, and has three horn::, ail inch in length, pro tisMlim: from the top of its head.

The eyes are indepen dent of each other, and the animal can look in two directions at once wii.lir.nt turning its head ; it simply holds one eye stationary and rolls I ha other forward, backward, up or down, to suit its wishes. Next to its eyes its tongue is the most won derful part of its anatomy, being quite the length of its body.

SAVED BY A NAME. An Irish soldier arriving at camp late one night was challenged-"Who goes there ?" Considering a moment, and think ing he might avoid punishment, he answered, "Kitchener!"

Why did you say it was Kitchener ?' "Shure," came the answer, "when ye would do this to Kitchener, ye'd want poor CallagUan's life, ye spal peen !" "Is it possible that you, of a family famous for soven generations, can stoop to marry an unknown up start ?" The young girl answered coolly : "Well, I prefer to marry a man without a riiimo rather than a name without a man."

F"or the Man on the Land 3)oofue Hgricultucal anb pastoral Society. Dookie, . 3rd August, 1915. THE COMING HARVEST. Dear Sifj At a meeting of this Society, held on 31st ultimo,.the question of the disposal of the coming Wheat Crop was brought up for discussion,- and it was decided to communicate the various Agricultural Societies throughout Victoria on the subject. In view of the possibility of there beinga great scarcity of Shipping Transport, it is thought that there is a danger of farmers having to sacrifice their wheat on account of the resultant glut in the market, and it is considered desirable to take steps to avoid any such loss. Tho system proposed by our Society, in the evont of the unfavorable conditions foreshadowed actually occurring, is, briefly, that of storing tho whoat under Government supervision against the issue of a Storage Certificate by the Government; such Certificate could then bo lodged by the holders with any financial institution as cover for temporary ad...
When Gunners Go Deaf. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 5 August 1915
When Gunners Go Donf. The average civilian lias a very Vague idea as to the condition- iu fiide a turret on a warvessol while heavy liring is going on. The jrrcatcst force of the vibration from the liring of a gun is natural ly just outside the muzzle, and that is outside the turret. So terrific is this vibration that, if severe precau tions were not tal;ei:, the dee'e under the muzzle would be ripped to pieces sheet-iron doors v.-ould be wrenched from their hangings, and skylights shattered. To guard against these effects the deck under the gun-r.iu/.zle is re-enforced with steel plates about, an inch thick, and skylights are taken ofl and replaced with cover ings of armour plate. Of course, there is considerable roar and jar felt inside the turret. Men who are looking for the refine ment of precaution recommend that gunners wear shoes with rubbor cushioncd soles and heels to lessen the jar on the deck. The air vibration, due either to firing in one's own or some other turret, , ha...
