DEALING WITH WOUNDED RUSH ON HOSPITAL SHIP. CHAPLAIN TAKES OFF HIS COAT. Captain Benjaiield, serving at the big base hospital in Egypt, has some thing to say ol his experience off the coast of Galiipoli:-? "To say that since writing last we have been through a literal hell is putting things very mildly. We left our anchorage at the appointed time land steamed around to our appointed position of Big Anrfarfe Bay in the early morning. Vt'e were supposed to have 5 hours to prepare the ship for the reception of wounded, but as a matter of fact tiiey were landed on us before the first of tiie troops had left the ship. Our mcu were landed in torpedo boats, and the first one to come alongside had about a dozen on board, and one dead. There was no thing for it but to take them and do ? the best we could for them.

THE TURKISH METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915

THE TURKISH METHOD. The Turk is invariably a brave man whoa lie is in a subordinate capacity. Directly, however, lie becomes one having authority lie turns to pecula tion. There is a true story of a Turk ish warship which liad a wooden pro peller shaft, her captain having sold tlio original shaft at scrap-iron prices. There is also the story, equally true, of a battleship laid down many years ago which, when nearly ready for launching, had her construction sus pended for lack of funds. A few years later the Kaiser, in his capacity of the friend of Islam, having arrang ed a German loan, it was decided to complete the ship. But when they came to look for her 110 trace remain ed. Everything had been peculated! Humor in his home, which is really every man's club; jollity at his own fireside, ami wit, be it ever so mild a form, is the solving of nearly all domestic trouble. A man simply cannot growl when everybody else ia in glee over some funny joke; he can not scowl when he sees a smil...

FACE WORTH £10,000 DEATH OF JOHN BUNNY, THE PICTURE SHOW KING. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915

FACE WORTH £10,000 DEATH OF JOHN BUNNY, THE PICTURE SHOW KING. No one in the realm of living pic tures enjoyed the reputation or popu larity of John Bunny, who has just died in New York. People of every na tion are familiar with Bunny's smile, and have roared with laughter at his tribulations. Mr. Bunny weighed IS stone and was horn in New York City in 1SC3. His first professional work at the age of 20 was as "end" man in an obscure minstrel company. When the cinema boom came Bunny was caught up in the whirl, and rapid ly became famous. He offered his ser vices to the Vilagraph Company in 1910, and w as engaged at a salary of £8 a week. Though he was a heavy man, liis body was as mobile as his face, so that he never shrank from hazardous adventures with bucking bronchos, aeroplanes, or well-soaped stairs. He visited England in 1911, and went to the Derby that year dress ed as a coster, and in a donkey cart. The Epsom road will not let the mem ory die. "It could be truly said of Bunn...

She can speak eight languages; has made speeches in various tongues be fore large audiences; has written and staged plays, besides writing ten books and helping to illustrate them; often plays at concerts, both upon the violin and piano: teaches Esperanto in the Carnegie Institute; has beaten champions playing chess, can row, fence, swim, ride horseback, skate, cook, knit, sew, and execute fancy dresses. Truly "some" girl, as they soy in the States. And yet, according to the autobiography of twelve-year-old Wini fred Sackville Stoner, which has late ly been published, this is no exaggera tion of her attainments. Winifred's father is Dr. J. B. Stoner, a surgeon in the United States Public Health Service, who is now in command of the United States Marine Hospital at Pittsburg. He was stationed at Nor folk when his remarkable daughter was born, and Winifred is proud of being a Dixie's land girl. The secret of her education has been the play spirit. Whatever she wa...

DEADLY GUNCOTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 July 1915

DEADLY GUNCOTTON. Efforts have been made to prevent cotton from being imported into Ger many, as it is an indispensable asset to liigli explosives. Guncotton is used in enormous quantities for charging torpedoes and mines. Its base is raw cottou or even cotton waste such as is used in cleaning machinery. This is soaked for several hours in baths of nitric and sulphuric acid, and it is then passed between massive steel rollers. These expel every trace of acid which has not been absorbed by the cotton. Through continual sDak itigs in water the acid-charged cotton is reduced to a mass resembling paper pulp, and it is then ready to be moulded into various shapes and sizes. Discs, cylinders, squares, and tubes of guncotton are produced ac cording to the shape of the implement in which it Is to be used. Intense shock or heat explodes gun cotton, and its power can b6 gauged from the fact that it is the force which blows great holes in ships through the agency of mines and tor pedoes. The a...

If on tl'e German side submarines have played the principal part in the nival war, on the British side it has hecn tlio destroyer which has to maintain an incessant and unweary nlr activity.

Mates, what will you say when these questions you're asked By the lads nobly fighting out there? "What part in the battle for freedom was yours? Did you take ot the burden your share?

MODESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 July 1915

MODESTY. A man may sing his ego song, pro claim his merits with a gong, and fool the folks a while; but they will weigh him in the end, size up his calibre and fcend him to the old junk pile. To gather in some fame or pelf the cheap man always boots himself and makes a wondrous noise; but noise soon bores his fellow men and fills them with the willies; then he's outlawed by the boys. I've met some fellows really great; some guys who reach a high estate in letters or in art; and shy and modest were they all-no ban ners on the outer wall, no mannerisms smart. And I have met some cheaper guys who thought this planet and the skies resounded with their fame; ah, they were made of finer dust! Their chests were swelled up fit to bust their heads swelled up the same. A little while throughout the town, the selling-platers hold renown, and then they sink and slip; at last they join the has-been clan and have no friend in mortal man since they have lost their grip. The influence of men of wor...

CAN YOU STAND THIS? MORE OF THE KAISER'S CRIMES. MEN AND WOMEN BURNED ALIVE. WHY AUSTRALIANS SHOULD ENLIST. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 July 1915

I CAN YOU STAND THIS ? MORE OF THE KAISER'S CRIMES. MEN AND WOMEN BURNEO t ALIVE. ' . WHY AUSTRALIANS SHOULD ENLIST. "Thank God!" exclaimed the mother of a missing Australian the other day, "my soil may he a prisoner in Turkey, but they will treat him better than Germans." The evidence contained in the ap pendix to the report of Lord Bryce's Committee 011 German atrocities is so vast and multifarious that it can only be digested by slow degrees. The 1200 depositions and the diaries with the facsimiles all merit the most careful study by the British public. No such indictment has ever been laid against any nation in the past; the bare statement of the German deeds has horrified the neutral world. Evidence that the Prussian officer is a uniformed Bill Sikcs abounds. To give some typical depositions: "In my own house I saw officers be fore the burning come in with their revolvers in their hands, and have china, valuable antique furniture and other things removed. This being done, the h...
