STATE SCHOOL CHILDREN AND THE WAR. Four Month's Work. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

STATE SCHOOL CHILDREN AND THE WAR. Four Month's Work. Since Mr Frank Tate, Director of the Education Department, gave the ivord "Go," there has been peristent work in the schools, and Mr A. C. Witton, accountant to the depart ment, finally reports for 1914, " I have received from all sources the sum ofi'o,to9 Igs 9d." This amount includes the voluntary percentage reduction of officers' and teachers' salaries; but the great proportion is due to theloyal, self denying work of patriotic young Britishers in our State schools. Well done; and this New Year, 1915, will doubtless eclipse the past year. So mote it be.

EMERALD STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

EMERALD STATE SCHOOL' The Emerald State school annual concerts under the guidance of Mr A. Edwards, head teacher, have been such a success that this probably accounts for the huge attendance patronising the rendering of " Blue Beard" in the local hall on Decem ber t9. Long before the hour of commencement the hall's seating capacity of 300 was taxed to the utmost, one of the hall committee men remarking that extension must be made at an early date to cater for the necessities of this rapidly grow ing district. The plot, as the title and characters suggest, is laid in an Eastern potentate's dbminions, where the Sultan Blue Beard Abomlique reigns supreme, and who wants as his seventh wife the beautiful Fa tima,.daughterof. Ibrahim, an indig nantifather, but true love, notwith standing its decree of "not running smooth," eventually overcomes all by the handsome and daring Selim, Fatiina's lover,' who encompasses the death of Blue Beard.

NO ELOPEMENTS IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

NO ELOPEMENTS IN GERMANY. One seldom hears of elopements in Germany, because'it is impossible for young people to liarry iin that coun try without the consent of. their par ents or legal guardians. Certain pre scribed- forms must be gone through, or the marriage is null and void. When a girl has arrived at rwhat is considereda marriageable age. her '?wo or tree ar~e-lv?-??-n 2| time, so that the attention may niot seem too pointed. - No young manul, however, is invited to the house un til after he has called at least once, and thus signified his wish to have social intercourse with the family. In Germany a man must be at least eighteen years old before hlie can make a proposal; but when it is made and accepted, the proposal is speed ily followed by the betrothal. This generally takes place privately, short ly after which thie father of the bride -as she is then called-gives a din ner or 'supper to the most intimlte friends of both families, w-len the fact is formally announced, and ...

THE BLACK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

THE BLACK COW. General French's summary of pper ations recently: issued by the Press Bureau mentions some of the tricks of spies in the field. There is one that has been puzzling the French military authorities for weeks past. It is, the mystery of the black cow. Just as gipsies and beggars fre quently have a code of signals whdich they chalk on walls and hoardings, so has the German espionage depart ment. 'Their spies are using all sorts of roadside signs to indicate to their troops :what is ahlead of them. The dign of the black cow has frequently been found. The sign was so crudely fashioned in black chalks or crayons that for a time nobody paid any attention to it except to remark on the dispropor tions of the animal. Now it turns oilt that it did not matter if the spy ar tists made his cow look pleasant or furious, or rhetlher he exaggerated the length of the tail or horns. The size of the animal and the direction in which the animal's head pointed were all that mattered. The Fr...

KORUMBURRA SPORTS.

THE ORIGIN OF THE HORSESHOE [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

THE ORIGIN OF THE HORSESHOE Whiether: the bGeeks and lRoman? shod their horses is a point still dis auted by antiquaries. Up to the pres| nt, no clear and definite representa Lion of a shod horse has been found among their sculptural relics. On the other hand, horseshoes have been found in France--and for the matter of that, in Paris, along tlhe track of thle old Roman way-which re conjectured. (from the articles among which -they were discovered) to date from the Roman occulpation of Gaul. The logical conclusion is that the "barbarian"- (Gaulish or German) light cavalry allies of - the Roman army rd?gularly shod their shaggy ponies. These, men probably formed the scouts and auxiliaries of the con quoring. armies of old Rome; the Ro man himself - was par excellence a foot soldier. There seems little- doul?t that the blacksmith-farrier> existed in.: -old Gaul, and it is just possible that the southern and more civilised tribes of the Ancient;Britons might have shod their horses.

...FOR THE' FARMER' LIMING SOIL. The Benefits to be Derived. There :is no form bf mannired, arti. ficial 'ior otherwise, which can w'hblly make up for: a deficiency of lime ill our soils, hence the special need for its aiplication to all calcaredis, Sandy and peaty soils. On these soils the best results are obtained. when ap plied in a caustic state, as iluicklme, and in small quantities at a time.

PHILLIP ISLAND RACES. The great annual festive gathering at the "Isle of Wight"' of Australia was celebrated on New Year's Day and was a decided success. The island was full of visitors, and the two hotels and the boarding houses were taxed to the utmost. It is a pity we are not better advertised, as the Island is a charming place on which to spend a holiday, and it requires a fortnight to thoroughly explore it from Cape Woolamai to The Nob. bies. The entries this year for the several dvents were not large, the difficulty being in getting across from the mainland. There was some interesting racing, although the fields were small.

FRANKSTON SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

FRANKSTON SPORTS. "Frankston by the Sea" was crowded on New Year's Day, the three hotels, the coffee palaces and boarding houses being heavily taxed The sports gathering in the well appointed park was one of the most successful ever held on the grounds. It is a pity the park was not a little larger, to admit of pony racing, when the attendance would be nearly doubled. The foot and bicycle racing, however, commanded the at tention, the presence of the champion road racer, Don. Kirkham, who has not long returned from France after a successlul tour, being in itself an attraction. He gave a taste of his quality by winning the Frankston Wheel Race of one mile off scratch, giving away long starts. The pro ceeds on this occasion are to be given to the war fund. The consuls of the allied countries were invited to be present, and sent representatives in those cases in which they were un able to come. nThe sum of [85 was taken at the gate, and a considerable sum was netted for the funds by a ...
