WEALTH OF TOGOLAND. Togoland, the fourth and smallest of German protectorates on the West Coast of Africa, which has heen taken by Britain by an expeditionary force of Go Id Coast troops, has a coast line of about thirty miles only, but the strip of territory extends inland for a'bout 350 miles. Whilst narrow ing on the northern frontier to about thirty-two miles, it widens in the cen tre to fully 100 miles. It is calculated that Togoland comprises an area of nearly 34,000 square miles, and there is a population of fully 1,000,000. There are fewer than 400 Germans in the colony, Most of these are at Lome, the chief town, and they con sist of officials and traders. Togo land, like the other German West African colonies, suffered from the methods adopted In developing the territory; but it is a rich country, producing palm-oil and palm-nut ker nels, cocoa, kola-nuts, rubber, and the many fibres yielded by tropical for-, ests. In addition to building Lome ou lines which render it one o...

A Double Pleasure. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

A Double Pleasure. • ."The vice of intemperance," said the lecturer, "is the bane of . this country; it has ruined more homes, blighted- more lives, and- is respon sible for more crime than all other evils put together. " "Can it be contended that the habit of drinking ever advances one's hap piness? What pleasure is there to be found in whisky?" At this question there -was a slight commotion in the hall, and a myster ious individual arose and seemed abou to speak. "Ah, sure," said the strange voice, ^ "and isn't it a trate, isn't it a trate intirely to see two of your swate, purty faces instead of one?"

THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN. We delight to listen daily, From the dawn till set of sun, To the daring, dauntless doings Of the man behind the gun! He will face the foe and, fearless. Fight him fiercely, Dorth and south, Seeking bubble reputation In the booming cannon's mouth. Oh, the rumbling roar of battle Is sweet music to his ears; He has little love for laughter. And he has no time for tears. But the gunner is a goner, And his valor is knocked flat When he sights the killing glances Of the girl beneath the hat.

The Road to Ruin. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

The Road to Ruin. A party of motorists touring from Cornwall lost their way. one night while proceeding to St. Mawes, and eventually found themselves strand ed with a burst tyre on one of the hilliest, roughest, narrowest, and most winding roads that even Corn wall produces. While the spare-wheel was being fixed the rain came down in torrents, and language suitable to the occasion was used. Just then a farmer happened to come along. "Can you tell us where we are?" asked the owner-driver, calming him self with an effort. "We have missed our- way." "You are on the road to Riian," said the farmer innocently. "It's a mile off." "Oh, I see!" exclaimed the perspir ing motorist. "On the road to ruin, am I? Well," he continued, as the humor of the situation dawned upon him, "I may be, and it may lead to destruction—but I always thought it was a sight broader and easier going than this."

"Pointed." [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

"Pointed." it was at one of the sale-time scrambles. A disciple of the hobble skirt had just been carried off the field, and there had been a few other similar casualties, when a lady with a huge hat fought her way through to the front. In doing so she edged into a mild, despectacled gentleman. "Madame," he murmured. The lady of the enormous hat took no no tice, but pressed closer to her goal. "Madame," he murmured again. "Did you speak, sir?" she asked superciliously. "Yes, I wished to ask you," replied the little man, "whether it would in convenience you too much to remove your hat brim from my eye; I de sire to wink." Flattery is like a flail, which, if not adroitly used, mil box your own ears instead of tickling those of the corn. The book of life is illustrated in black and white; dreams are the col ored supplement. All the world loves a lover; and pity is akin to love.
