Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914

Toot Your Own Horn. A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and hvatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and 'squeaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before, they sting. . But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise, j

BILLIARDS. [BY BAULT-LINE.] [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914

BILLIARDS. [By Baulk-Line.] Ifc is pleasing to report progress in connection with the Patriotic Tourna ment which is being decided at Larkin's Hotel. Several interestingly close con tests hare been enjoyed by the large gatherings of spectators during the past week, and the meeting of some of the contestants resulted in very attractive' billiards being played. " Tonso," who was previously spoken of as " the pigeon to be plucked," has, so far, defied the efforts of his brethren to rob him oE the gay feathers of victory. Only two of the 32 nominees remain with a winning chance. They are— " Tonso" Tucker and Bert. Walsh, and one of these gentlemen will be wearing the much-coveted gold medal ere the week is ended. In his game with E. Fry, Con. Savige played some very nice strokes, and put together some good breaks, the best of which was 43—only three short of the highest break during the tournament. An easy shot was his greatest obstacle, and at that he came to grief. Deafening applause ...

The closing down of the newspaper at Pensburst has brought forth this comment from the Coleraine news paper :—" As a town Penshurst did not sufficiently give its newspaper a chance to earn its own living, although it probably took all the kudos which the existence of the Press brought to the place. It now loses a certain status, and is deprived of a regular local con venience for giving information, either as information or news. The pro prietor will be saved the worry and expense (increased during the past few months) of bringing out an unwanted sheet." Read an Advertisement.-—" I suf fered a good deal with headaches, and tried almost everything without getting relief," writes Mr Joseph H. Leef, Whiriaaki, N.Z. "I had read an ad vertisement on Chamberlain's Tablets, and thought they would do me good. I bought a box, and can truly say my headaches were relieved after a few doses. Everyone to whom I have re commended Chamberlain's-Tablets has benefitted by their use." Sold by all sto...

FRENCH AND GERMAN GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914

FRENCH AND GERMAN GUNS. The great superiority of tlie French gun lies in its stability, and in the fact that it will stand extreme hard wear. To show its wonderful stabil ity, it may be mentioned that a glass of water placed on the rim of the wheel of the gun remains unspilled after the shot has been fired. This extraordinary feat, impossible in the case of most guns, has been made pos sible by the clever application of a special recoil brake which Krupp al ways declared could not be fitted to field artillery. It was adapted at the Creusot works, however, and that is one point where the French guns are superior to the German. Another fea ture of the Creusot guns is what is known as the recuperator, which causes the gun to return to its firing position. The force used is com pressed air, possessing the advantage over many of the Krupp guns, in which springs are used, that it never wears out or loses its "spring." Creu sot guns were used in the Balkans, and army officers declared afte...

NO MUSIC IN PARIS. The air of solemnity forced on Paris by the horrors of war has made that city a remarkable contrast to the gay, music-loving and laughter-filled capi tal of a few months ago. The name of Paris has always been associated with music and joyousness, but now that has ceased. Since 5 o'clock on the day that the' mobilisation of the French troops Avas commenced not a note of music has been heard there. The violin and the trombone, the cor net and the clarionet have been stor ed away while their owners are at the war. *'' Numbers of musical instruments are packed in restaurants. The or chestras have joined the colors as fighting units, and have left- their-in struments behind them..
