A JOURNALIST'S "SCOOP." Bennet Burleigh's Great Ride. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
A JOURNALIST'S "SCOOP." Bennet Burleigh's. Great Ride. It was at Tel-el-Kebir that Bennet Burleigh, whose death is so widely deplored. in newspaperland, laid the foundation of his fanie as a war cor respondent. His starlight ride across the desert has been thus graphically described by .a journalistic comrade. "Burleigh 'went over the trenches with the fighiting line; he took a brief survey of the scene-it was only a few minutes' battle-his skilled eye read the salient,facts, and a minute later he was galloping back to the field telegraph station at Kassassin, whence his brief preliminary message was the first jntelligence wired to this country that Tel-el-Kebir was taken. "Promptly marshalling his facts, he followed this up by the first of his brilliant word pictures of battle scenes. '"Withoult resting, lie rode back to the scene of battle, to find that the cavalry brigade had been in hot haste despatched to Cairo. Despising the danger from prowling rebels, ihe dashed on alone aft...
AN INCIDENT OF THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
AN INCIDENT OF THE WAR "Really it is awful what we have to go through owing, to the German spies, who simply overrun France," my friend remarked. "I Will relate one incident which occurred, just to point out how careful we have to be. Near Arras there dwelt a Frenchwo-. man and her husband, whose conduct aroused suspicion. We made inquiries andl found that she had formerly had a lover, a lieutenant of Uhlans, who lived, in the district in time of peace. We noticed that each night she would go out to a wood in the neighbor hood carrying a basket, and return after dark. One evening wve ordered a patrol of our cavalry to follow her. They overtook her on the way, where upon she became frightened and re turned to Arras. Our cavalry went on to the wood, and there surprised eight Uhlans under a lieutenant. 'Our brave officer charged and shot two Germans, but then-found he had no more cartridges in his revolver, or else that it had jammed. The re maining Uhlans fled, as we approach ed, but ...

FUNNY FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
FUNNY FISH. The kangaroo has always seemed to have the monopoly of that conveni ent way of carrying its babies in a pouch, but it has been discovered that a fish has the same useful recep tacle, which it uses for a similar pur pose. The pipefish, as it is called, from the length of its jaws, has a pocket on the under-side of its body nearly half its length. It is found in the male species only, and is the only part of its body which is unprotected by large flat plates, which take the place of scale in its protective armor. If a pipefish is taken from the water and its little ones shaken out of the pouch -back into the water, they always seem either unable or disinclined to run away. But if the father is placed in the water again all the small fish immediately swim back into the pouch. These curious little creatures have .prehensile tails, which they use to hold on to the sea weed to prevent themselves being carried away by the tide. The pipe fish is similar to the small eel, being a...
TRIP IN A SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
TRIP IN A SUBMARINE. : -:1 Of all the mnany sorts and'condi tions of craft embraced in the navy of a first-class Power, the submarine is the smallest and least aggressive looking. There are many people who urge that submarine craft should- not be a fighting unit at all, not because of any fearful power she possesses of in volving an enemy in frightful catas trophe, but that lifo in her, leaving war entirely out of the question, .is unnatural and pregnant with an ever present sense of dread and forebod ing. This feelirg Is in the marrow of every submarinist, though there is no braver body of men in the wide world. -However, -these amphibious crea tions of man's genius exist, and we have to make the best of them, singularly enough against our better judgment as a nation, for the Lords of Admiralty for a time would not hear of their adoption till they were virtually forced to toe the line by the submarine activity. of Germany, France and America. These craft might be all that was claim...
DOWN ON DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
DOWN ON DOCTORS. Doctors may err, even in the still ness of the sick-room. How much more, then, are they likely to make mistakes in the uproar of the battle field? That this is so is shown by the experience of the famous Russian General Dragomiroff, who once riar rowly escaped losing both legs. He commanded a division during the Russo-Turkish war, and fell in the fighting at the Shipka Pass, wounded in several places. He was carried un conscious to a field hospital, and came to himself just as the doctors were about to amputate both legs. Dragomiroff said he wfiuld rather take his chance of dying, but they persisted. Then he drew a revolver and swore he would blow out the brains of the first man who tried to use a lancet on him. He had his way, but for over a week he held that-revolver tightly clenched in his hand, fearing that the surgeons would yet play a trick on him. At night he made his servant stand on guard arm ed with a rifle. He recovered after a few aveeks' illness, and th...

STHE ENGLISHMAN. Tales Tea and Fights Because it is the "Coriect" Thing. Satirical Sketch by an'Anierican Journalist. By John Reed i crossed thel continent on the Lu culus Limited, wiich is, as you know, the boast of a great railroad system; the toy of a powerful board of direc tors-a train which loses an immense sum- of money every trip it makes. For it provides all thle comforts of a hotel and a club--a barber's shop, bath, stenographer, vacuum cleaners, free newspapers, and tea in the ob serva ion car. About 4.30 a company of dignified Senegambians bear aft the ceremonial pots and cups and ask some frightened cattle king's wife to pour for a perfectly strange com pany. Then ensues a marvellous and terrible sight-the division of the classes. The cattle king's wife emits a startled "How?" and flees; her hlusband, 'who has been snoring in his shirt-sleeves, with the children pluck ing at his elastic armlbands, a~wakes, struggles frantically into his coat, and herds his progeny towar...

Dick had struck a good moment. -She had been feeling so desolikte, so dreary, and then had come the revul sion. Even a few minutes. with him had made her almost forget her lone liness. He seemed to read her thoughts. "You seem to have forgotten Sadie." He drew a deep breath. "Do yon think I owe her all the rest of my life to ruin and.curse? Do you know that it was because she had-oh, why should I not speak.plainly?-because she had given way to that hideous vice and fallen asleep, that.my little darling died-" "Oh, Dick, no, no!" His face was stern and white. "She lay like a log, while my little Mollie tried to get something she wantedand fell and lay, goodness knows how long, uncared for on the floor. And afterwards things were only worse. ,I will not allow anything in the house, but she fin...
WAR PROPHECIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
WAR PROPHECIES. Military experts are of the opinion that war 'vill continue for a couple of years. They are not always right in their prophecies, however. They told us that the Franco-Prtssian war would last a couple of years, whereas it was all over within six months, vwhile the Russo-Japanese war, which was said might continue for three or four years, was concluded vithin eighteen months. The ts-o most re cent Central European wars were set tled in an amazingly short time. In 1866 Prussia and Austria went a' each other's throats. That war last ed only seven weeks, and it ended in PrusSia giving Austria a terrible and humiliating beating. France and Sardinia also gave Aus tria a crushing defeat in 1859-in a war in which the general fighting lasted less than a month. This list does not include Italy's earlier and feebler struggles for liberty against Austria, as In 184849.

Words of Comfort. "I am going over to comfort Mrs. Brown," said. Irs. Jackson to her daughter Mary. "Mr. Brown hanged himself in their attic last night." "Oh, mother, don't go. You know you alhvays say the -vrong thing." "We have had rainy weather late ly, haven't we, Mrs. Brown," she said. "Yes," replied the widow. "I have not been able to get a week's wash dried." "Oh," said Mlrs. Jackson, "I should not think you would have any trou ble. Nobody has a better attic than you to hang things in!" It wvas an ardent and successful re former who remarked most confiden tially that "you could propagate al most any kind of a propaganda if you could find the proper geese."
BRIDES OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
BRIDES OF DEATH. The first result of mobilisation and Iwar in Germany was a rush to the churches. Marriage and death were Indissolubly combined, and every be trothed German soldier set about to wed. A decree proclaimed that for Nottrauugen (immediate marriage of soldiers) banns and other formalities were dispensed with. Between Saturday morning, August 1, and Tuesday at 12, there were 4400 such weddings. Half were solemn ised on Sunday. I saw some of this (writes a correspondent of "Collier's Weekly"). I was driving past the red brick church in Wilhelmsaue, where my own child was christened. Out side were' 20 odd couples in a queue as if waiting for a theatre, not for marriage and death. Some. soldier bridegrooms were in uniform; reser vists were in mufti. The reservists carried the inevitable cardboard box. I saw-two girls in the queue keep ing places for bridegrooms who had not yet come, and I saw men keeping places for their brides. The parties were of all classes-rich girls in w...

FAMOUS GENERALS AS PROPHETS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
FAMOUS GENERALS AS PROPHETS. The late Lord Wolseley, when lie set out for the Ashanti War, predict ed that he would hoist the British flag in Kumasi on February 5. He actu ally entered that savage capital on the 4th. Also, ere he set out, he re corded in his diary the date when he trusted the e.pedition would be back in England. His return agreed with his forecast to a day. When he. left England in 1882 to break the rebellion of Arabi Pasha he expressed the belief .that the cam paign would be over by September 15. On the 13th, Wolseley, at the head of 11,000 bayonets, 2000 sabres, and sixty guns, surprised the Egyptian Army of 25,000 men at Tel-el-Kebir, and attacked them with such tremen dous vigor that they were routed in little over half an hour. Then Wolse ley led his men across the desert to Cairo without drauwing rein. At the time a correspondent wrote:-'The annals. of war relate no more stirring exploit than this desert ride under the hot Egyptian sun, and then the immediate ...
GARLIC CURES CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
GARLIC CURES CONSUMPTION. xaIx~u-nxsi --now- ueumgrrcoginseu-a a cure for consumption. Dr. W. C. Min chin, of Dublin, discovered its medi cinal virtues, and cases of tubercu lous glands have been cured by this treatment, some in a month, others in six months. Garlic contains a volatile oil called allyl sulphide, and this chemical seems to have a remarkable power of 'bacillus. Dr. Minchin recommends the juice to be taken internally and externally. Other doctors have tried garlic juice in treating for consumption, and each of them testifies to its efficacy. A New York medical man tried it on his wife, about whose condition he was beginning to despair. After six months he pronounced her cured. In a teaspoonful of garlic juice there are about two drops of allyl sulphide. This chemnlical is what poi sons the harmful bacilli. No substance is known that pene trates the human body as allyl sul phide penetrates It. If doses of garlic are made into a poultice and tied un der the foot, the sme...

VISIT OF THE ARCHBISHOP OF SYDNEY, TO THE ABORIGINAL STATION AT YARRABAH, QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
VISIT OF THE ARCHBISHOP OF SYDNEY, TO THE ABO RIGINAL STATION AT YAR RABAH, QUEENSLAND. (From St. James' C.E,, Dandenong, Parish iMagazine.) " The launch is at the pier," said Mr Lyon, the energetic Supetinten deitt of Yarrabah, who kindly called upon me at Cairns on Monday, July 27. The Rev. J. Jones, the ever alert Secretary of A.B.M., had been good enough to inform him of my northern journey, and my desire to visit Yarrabah. It was a glorious morning, a calm sea, translucent light, and a'few clouds flickering the sky. "You are fortunato in your weather, it is not always like this," said the Superintendent as he led the way down the steps to the pier to where the launch lay manned by three of the Yarrabah boys. I realised my good for une, because I had heard of the passage and of the launch. What of the launch? It is a good sea boat but not the launch that we ought to provide as the chief resource of communication for our Mission. It needs overhauling and fitting with a new engine...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
MISCELLANEOUS. Butcher's Meat and Headache.-Th prescription of a diet largely vegetarian ha long been known to be good for persons sub Jeet to attacks of headache. Alexandet -aig relates i- the "Pmractitioner," a case that came under his treatment which indi cates to him that this diseaseand its atten. dent phenomena are largely the result of a poison circulatingin the blood, which poison is a product of the digestion of certain foods especially butcher's meat, and that a cure is best effected by cutting off entirely the nox lous food and aiding the elimination of th poison by the kidneys. The patient was a chronic sufferer'from headache, and the afflictions that usually ac company it. He was a hard student, and was most troubled in winter. Os the adop tion of a strict vegetarian diet the attacks which had been severe, ceased at once, and for six months of the cold half of the year there were only one or two slight ones. .lthough they had been recurring-weekly. A less strict diet wa...

Deceased, who was born in Narre Warren 49 years ago, was spared to see many changes in the place of his birth. For some time he was associated in business with his father, the late Mr George Rae...
