ABOUT THE KAISER. IMAGINED HE WAS HEIR TO THE ENGLISH THRONE. A SCHEME OF WORLD DOMINION [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
1 ABOUT THE KAISER. IMAGINED HE WAS HEIR TO THE ENGLISH -THRONE. ' j A SCHEME OF WORLD DOMINION j Long ago the Kaiser's madness took the form of imagining that he was the rightful heir to the English throne. He based his assumption j upon the fact that as he was the eldest child of Queen Victoria's eldest I child, and as the.Sallic law did not | prevail in England, he was the right- ' l'ul heir, not the Prhice of Wales, af- j tenvards King Edward! All kinds ol" ingenious arguments were put for ward in furtherance of his claim. The fact of Queen Victoria being on the throne instead of the Duke of Cum berland was pointed out' as an in- j stance of a woman being preferred | as sovereign to a man, aud hencr I why should not the succession run through the female? Then William considered that he had the greatest imaginable bribe to. offer the British people, the bribe of complete mastery of the world, in the shape of a vast Anglo-German Empire! The-idea that he hatched in his ^ perturbed ...

"A story is current," says the "Pacific Rural Press," "tliat the Gov ernor of Kansas lias paroled a State prisoner, for- GO days so- that lie -can go to his home and harvest a wheat crop for the family.

WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
WARNING. When she lelteth thee recklessly spend, And laugheth to see thee go broke, Thou may'st jolly her on without end, For she.jtaketh thee but as a joke. But when she demurretli at price, And chidetli for what thou hath spent. Thou art treading on treacherous ice, For the maiden hath solemn intent. Let us make sure*. Let us rise to the height of the great argument without further vacillation. Let the youth of the British Empire hurl itself at the War Office, demanding rifles, demanding drill, demanding hard, stern training in the bitter busi ness of war. It is the moment of testing for us as a race. We must not hang back until the cruel cry of necessity forces compulsory levies of men upon Britain. If Germany knew that in six months the British Empire will have a million men trained to the use oi arms and ready to fight her war-worn legions to the finish, do you think Germany would not shrink from the prospect? But if Germany can count on our shirkers and slack ers, she will fig...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. No fairy prince of old. renown ever approached in his most magnificent moments -the marvellous achievements' of some of the cabled heroes of the present war, but the Glasgow "Weekly Mail" has unearthed a soldier who has therii all done brown. Corporal Corniack, in that paper, modestly re lated his own valiant deeds. In two columns of thrill and picture-show action 'he told how he captured the Kaiser, and when surrounded by a company of Uhlans lie only spared his Royal prisoner's ' life upon a guarantee of sale conduct to the British lines. And the corporal tops off Ills story with the assurance that, had he had any other weapon than the empty revolver. which he had taken from a dead foeman, presum ably slain by his naked hands, lie would have brought William of Ger many back to the Allies' trenches, dead or alive. The shade of Mun chausen is even now hurrying across the Styx to hand over the belt to Corir.ack. The British Cavalry are shouting "Hack-der Kaiser!"...
GUNS THAT SHOOT SEARCHLIGHTS HOW NIGHT ATTACKS ARE FOILED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
GUNS THAT SHOOT SEARCHLIGHTS HOW NIGHT, ATTACKS ARE FOILED. S» The advantage often gained in war by night attacks upon tlie enemy'e entrenchments now seems to be oft set by the invention of guns which project searchlights instead of bul lets, fired into the air above where the assaulting party is supposed to be approaching under cover of the darkness, remain some moments sus pended by opening parachute attach ments. During that period, each throws a cone of bright light upon the earth below. The approaching enemy is thus slightly revealed, while the force to be attacked remains invisible and can stop the contemplated attack with deadly markmanship. These illuminating grenades weigh only 14 ounces, and can be attached to the muzzle of the ordinary service rifle. In projecting it into the air the butt of the rifle is placed on the ground. There is a firing rod, weigh: ing an additional 4y2 ounces, which releases the parachute and ignites the illuminating substance—calcium car bide. Th...

IN THE WARDS. KITCHENER TALKS WITH WOUNDED. "WE'LL SEE IT THROUGH." [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
IN THE WARDS. KITCHENER TALKS WITH WOUNDED. "WE'LL SEE IT THROUGH." "Lord Kitchener!" This announcement, made at the door of one of the military wards in London Hospital 011 a recent Satur day afternoon, had the effect of a bugle-blast. Every man who could contrive to stand stood at attention; those who could not raised their hands to the salute. A ringing cheer filled the ward; wounded men put the last ounce of their strength into this welcome to the great man of the British Army. Blunt, kindly, encouraging, he saw everything, and talked to every sol dier who caught his eye. And at the slightest hint he knew where each man had been and what his regiment had done. "Where were you?" "Don't know rightly, sir; but it was on Wednesday." "Yes; you got it hot. And you gave it' hot to them. Well, we've got to give it 'em hot again! Carry on!" "And you?" inquired the Field-Mar shal, with a quick turn to another, but with a kindly, understanding look in his eyes. "With the 's, at replied the...

i THE KAISER'S SPY. KRUPP'S VISIT.,TO ENGLAND. . By Frederick William Wile, the Ber lin correspondent of the London "Daily Mail."

A LAD'S DANGEROUS FREAK VERY SEVERELY PUNISHED. A SALUTARY WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
A LAD'S DANGEROUS FREAK —:—♦ VERY SEVERELY PUNISHED. A SALUTARY WARNING. At the Warragul General Sessions on Monday, before His Honor Judge Box, Leonard William Martin, a youth 16 years of age, was charged with attempting to wreck a train, ; by placing a sleeper on the railway line, near Trafalgar. Mr S. Leon was the Crown prosecutor, and Mr Walker, of Melbourne (instructed by Mr Warren, of Trafalgar) ap peared for the accused, who pleaded guilty. After hearing an appeal from the lad's counsel, and evidence as to his character from his father, Constable Tatchell, of Trafalgar, and Messrs Sussex and Hicks (two farmers for whom the youth bad worked), His Honor sn-id that the reason which persuaded accused to do such a wicked act was beyond his compre hension.

Punishment must follow as a general warning of the gravity of the crime of touching anything...
