Yoang) is to be complimented on the progress it lias made under his supervision and control. The organ isation is perfect, afid with this Mr McLachlau expressed his pleasure, r and stated that 011 the whole it was one of the best in the district. All this is certainly very gratifyiug, both ■ to Mr Yoang and the people of the district, but this excellent state of affairs may operate in this way— ^that the Department are likely to recognise the ability of the teacher, and remove him to a higher school.

THE BABY SUBMARINE IDEA IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 24 March 1916

THE BABY SUBMARINE IDEA IN FRANCE. The Paris 'correspondent of the "Naval and Military Kecord'' says that in France this type is discredited. The idea. of David stay ing the Giant, of diminutive craft of trilling' cost sinking mastodons costing many** millions, has always been cherished by would-be French inventors, who, in 'the remarkable devices 'from time to time ordered to the Rue Boyale Admir alty, forgot one fact of capital importance, namely, that the sea is cruel to the undersized. Consequently a common tendency in craft of all classes is continuously to increase in dis placement, with a view to being in a better condition to fight the sea—which is the fir:«t enemy, and an everyday one, of navigators. ; True!—''.Pa, what is an anomaly?" "I can't explain the, term very well, son, but a deck-hand on a. submarine would be'anoi nalous.''—Birmingham Age-Herald. j

GERMANY AS NATURE'S COMPETITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 24 March 1916

GERMANY AS NATURE'S COMPETITOR. An admitted fact it is that no nation wa* better prepared than Germany to be isolated from the outside world and, y* •r>:T'|-j^'v her allies, "forming the^ group known as the Central Powers, .cgpflJolled to rely almost on-•' tirely on hm-^^irresources.

And since the German chemist has for year; been establishing an ascendancy over the ct ists of other nations, until we have come to" look upon Germany and chemistry as synony mous words in the broader sense, this would, seem logical. While fully appreciating tho skill of Ger man chemists and their numerous past achieve ments, it is inevitable that scientific men the world over should be rather sceptical regard ing the.. wonderful discoveries ; claiilfed > to have been scored in the isolated empire since the:■ opening of the European war.

TRICKING THE GERMANS. CUTE OLD FRENCHMAN ESCAPES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 24 March 1916

TRICKING THE GERMANS. j ' ■ ■ ■ : '■ CUTE OLD FRENCHMAN ESCAPES. j ( Many a French village "will have a story to J | recount of the great war. That of which the j beadle of a small village in the department (of the Aisne is the hero has a human side that will cause it to be remembered. Before the war, this village was a quiet, peaceful spot, far removed from the bustlo of the great highway. It "was chiefly noticeablc on account of its ancient steeple, its vener able parish priest, and its beadle, almost as venerable. Then, one line day, the Hun legions descended upon it. As usual, the invaders Ave're terribly sus picious. In the eyes of a Hun—-he knows something about the sxibject—everybody, man, woman, or child, is either an active or poten j tial spy. Neither priest nor beadle, in spite of his • age,' was exempt, from careful super vision. Both were looked upon as probable sources of danger. Suspicion was replaced by certainty one night, when a flickering light was noticed be hind...

REV. R. J. CAMPBELL'S MESSAGE FROM FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 24 March 1916

REV. R. J. CAMPBELL'S MESSAGE FROM FRANCE. . Here, on the ..table -before me, is a pile of Preueh and English. I have ! f been reading v%ot£\the English with reluct- ! -unce, the French with~a#.u,Lity. I want to see ; . how the war is going, .u^l^r as the news . papers can tell us about, it; anu^-fer hereiwe ..- are all hungry for news as you land. , i But 1 notice one curious contrast in the kjt^Wie of these two sets of journals. The Eng- ' lish are all angrily pessimistic, the French . soberly optimistic. This is why I take up an English paper with apprehension and some thing of reluctance, and why 'j[ go to the . French for a corrective. Perhaps not all the English papers are pes simistic, nor aU the French optimistic, but I -am1 bound to say that inost that have come my Avay—and they are not few—may fairly' be thus" described. Why the contrast? For contrast there un - doubt edly is. The French are not cock-a hoop, but neither are they depressing. The •English .ftfvere cook-a-hoo...
