WARSAW UNDER THE HEAVY HAND PROMISES AND PENALTIES IN POLAND. BERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

WARSAW UNDER THE HEAVY HAND PROMISES AND PENALTIES IN POLAND. By Percival Gibbon. BERNE. I It is a far call from here to War saw—Farther than ever now that Prince Leopold of Bavaria has his headquarters in the o'.d Palace of t>he Kings of Poland and the heart of Chopin has been carried away from its grave in the Church of the Holy Cross. But I fancy that from Petro grad it must be farther still, since •here, among these mountains, one can at least have news of it— glimpse it, at it were, afar and dimly, through that intervening miasma of falsity which rises off the face t>f Germany. Hither, trickling through in ones and twos to join the little Polish col ony in Switzerland whose head is Count Tyskiewiecz, come those Poles of Warsaw who have been granted permits to leave and go abroad. It seems that under certain conditions those permits are not hard to obtain. The applicant must not be a person of any prominence politically and should possess property in Warsaw which, it is un...

FORTUNES FROM THE WAR Profit of £50,000 on One Steamer! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

FORTUNES FROM THE WAR j Profit of £50,000 on One Steamer! . Many years will elapse ere some trades and businesses recover, if they ever do recover, from the effects of f this devastating war. In other trades , —those which are supplying the ma ; terials required for the war—fortunes are being made every day. The stop page of sport—cricket, football, rac ing, etc.—has resulted in the makers of sporting requisites losing nearly all their trade. Few people buy such luxuries as jewellery . nowaday^. The clothing and drapery trades have been hard hit, and the glass and pottery trades are seriously affected. | On the other hand, many manufac turers who formerly made articles of ! luxury have adapted their works to j 'necessary goods. Motor-car manufac : turers have reaped a harvest by con ] centrating their attention on war j vehicles instead of private cars, and j the boom in military motor-driven I vehicles is such that new works are being erected as rapidly as possible.

Some amateur strategists are wondering whether the Allies' generals are equal to those of the Germans. They point to the achievements of Hindenberg and Macken sen, and ask, What have our chiefs accom plished ? It should be remembered that Hindenberg's victoi'ies against the Rus sians have been gained, not by superior strategy, but by sheer weight of numbers and a huge preponderance of artillery and munitions. With plenty of men, plenty of guns, and plenty of shells he has bul locked his way along ; yet his victories have been Pyrrhic victories, very costly and barren of decisive results. On the other hand, when General Joffre defeated the Germans at the Marne...

SNAKE VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

THE FIT EXPERT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

I THE FIT EXPERT. By F. W. Thomas. I lie is a little, blustering man, a nimble-footed, bumptious person, whose main business in life is the superintending of fits. He can scent a fit a mile away, and the epileptic has hardly begun when Nosey is on the spot, ready — nay, eager — to assist. He knows more about fits than any man in the world, and no fit of any consequence has happened for years and years unless Mr. Parker was there, shoving his nose in. He is a fit expert. He can tell you the sort of fit a man is in two streets away. He knows the pink fit from the green variety, the misfit from the pink; and he has but one remedy for all. Air! "Give him air!" he says. On every possible occasion he prescribes air, quarts and quarts of it. He keeps a stock of it in his hat, and distributes it to the suffering regardless of ex pense. Should he see a crowd in the dis tance he dashes towards it, his hands full of his favorite remedy, and butts into the middle of the throng, yelling ."Give h...

CHAPTER X. A Mysterious Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

CHAPTER X. A Mysterious Crime, The proverb that It never rains but it pours" was well illustrated by the violent death of Colin Jade. Scarcely had the scandal concerning the gambling-house raid been set at rest, when Card-crescent was disturb ed by the second unexpected and dis agreeable event. Certainly., on .the face of_ it, the crime had nothing to do with the crescent, having taken place in Sheen-street, some consider able distance away, and the public at large were by no means ready to con nect the same with the neighborhood in which the raid had been made. But Colin was well known to the residents in the crescent, and, moreover, Vio let insisted that he had been murder ed next door. It was vain for Warton to assure her that she had oeen the victim of a hallucination. She per sisted in stating that she had heard the revolver- shot and had heard the cry of her cousin. No one could per suade her out of this belief. The information in the morning paper which Mrs. Pilgrim had broug...

WOOL AND THE WAR. PROSPERITY OF PRINCIPAL PRIMARY INDUSTRY. SATISFACTORY PRICES AT SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

WOOL AND THE WAR. PROSPERITY OF PRINCIPAL PRIMARY INDUSTRY. | SATISFACTORY PRICES AT SALES. J By Mr. H. R. Somer in "The Referee." Relating to the effect the war has •had on primary industries, an article appeared in a recent issue of the "Referee" over the name of Mr. Ii. R. Somer. As an old journalist who has applied himself especially to the agricultural and pastoral industries 01 the Commonwealth and as secretary of the Royal Agricultural Society of N.S.W., Mr. Somer is well qualified to express an opinion on this all-im portant subject, and while he deals particularly with conditions in New South Wales, whither many Victorian families have gone to carry on sheep breeding, it is full of interest to Vic torians. The pastoralists of New South Wales have had a good many woes in the la^t couple of years. The sea sons have been very muoh against them; in i'act, with the exception of a few favored districts, animals have } been lost over a great extent of the pastoral country. When th...

MAIZE CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

MAIZE CULTURE. •The source of the seed should oc cupy some attention. Though ;it is generally admitted that well-grown, ! plump grain is the best for seetl, it may sometimes happen that a bleed er or grower has seed that is the re- 1 suit of the crossing of two superior ' strains of a variety which has been through a dry time, and which, though not as plump as desirable, is valuable by reason of the breeding. A stock breeder will not slaughter young stock which are of good pedi gree because they are in poor condi-; tion, due to unavoidable circumstan-. ces. It has not yet been shown that ' very plump, well-grown seed yield better than a sample of smaller, per haps pinched appearance, which has been grown on and is adapted to a particular soil, but which has had the misfortune to encounter a dry spell. Most farmers would not plant such 1 seed on account of its poor appear , ance, but the "survival or the fittest" j theory must not be absolutely reject ed. Acclimatisation plays a larg...

Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved. J CHAPTER IX. The Revolver Shot. It was on no impulse of the mo-, ment that Mabel declared her inten tion of throwing over Jade. For some time he had disgusted her with his selfishness, and now that he had so disgraced himself iir public, she felt certain that he would make her mis erable if she married him. The doc tor was greatly annoyed by her de termination, and strove to make her change it. But, like most weak peo ple. Mabel could be as obstinate as a mule on any occasion when it seemed necessary. All Warton's talk made no impression on her, and although Col in in a most penitent manner plead ed his own cause, she refused to re lent. Mrs. Warton and Violet were on Mabel's side, and supported her thoroughly in her rebellion. At the same time, ...

DREAM VISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

DREAM VISIONS. That a person can visit distant friends in a dream and see what they are doing, if one only wills to do so, is the statement of a writer in the "Ladies' Field." It is apparently a kind of "dream" telepathy, because to carry it out successfully both parties must be willing to receive or to trans mit the message. Curiously enough, W'ho is to be the transmitter and who is to be the receiver can only be de cided when the experiment is carried out. The following is an example of this strange means of communication which was carried out as an experi ment. The experimenters were a lady and a gentleman. They were friends, but not in any way related, nor were they lovers. The man lived in London and was a bac&elor; the lady lived in Liv erpool. They mutually agreed that on a certain night, at a given hour, they would try and see in sleep what the other was doing and what were the surroundings of each. The- man went to sleep in London, as usual, and dreamed not at all, ...

He ad dressed the board in the following manner: — "Mr. Chairman, members of this philanthropic concourse, and faith ness." (A Member: "Draw it mild, ful friends and sons of righteous William.") "I am of an honorable and ancient family, and in my veins throbs the blood of Llewelyn and Caradoc and all the kingly and royalty of Wales, my native land. My ancestors are resting under honored turf in the an j cient and much-esteemed cemetery attached to the parish church of Llanrwst. and that of the Calvin Cem etery of Zion.

LIFE IN LUXEMBURG. POPULACE CHAFE AT GERMAN RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

! LIFE IN LUXEMBURG, POPULACE CHAFE AT GERMAN RULE. Describing Teutonic methods in oc cupied territory, life in Luxemburg under the Kaiser and how the Ger mans are disliked there, a Berne cor respondent writes that while all may be familiar with the narratives of the methods with which Germany rules the occupied parts of Belgium, very little has been heard about her treat ment of Luxemburg, with the viola tion of whose neutrality she opened the present campaign. This neutral ity was solemnly guaranteed by Ger many in 1867. The 250,000 inhabi tants of the Grand Duchy are virtual ly prisoners of war, having been en tirely cut off from the outside world since the beginning of August, 1914, and were it not for the good offices of the Swiss Government, which sends them regular consignments of flour, they would be actually short of food. The Luxemburg bakers are sup posed never to sell to German soldiers any bread made with Swiss flour and intended for the use of the civilian population o...

That Jarred Her. A young couple on their honey moon are dallying languidly Avith the grapes at dessert. ' She (archly): And. you don't find it tiresome all alone with me? You are quite sure you don't want to go back to your bachelor life again? He (earnestly): Quite, my darling. Do you know, if you were to die to night I'd get married again to-mor row morning? If a man permits largeness of heart to degenerate into softness of bead he inevitably becomes a nuisance in any relation of life. If sympathy be comes distorted and morbid it ham pers instead of helps the effort to wards social settlement; yet without sympathy, without fellow-feeling, no permanent good can be accomplished. We must'know ourselves, and, if that does not serve to discover truth, it at least serves to regulate our lives, and. there is nothing]more just.

A Letter from Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

Private "James Stoddart, writing from Heliopolis, Egypt, t,o his aunt, Miss Mercer, of Spring Vale, says :— " Yoa will be glad to hear we arrived safely. We disembarked at 10.30 a.m. on Thursday, 25th November, and en trained For Cairo. It was a six hours' trip. For a considerable distance the line skirted the Canal, along which we saw various camps of soldiers, chiefly Indian cavalry. This is a wonderful country. One may rend all about it and its people and their customs and believe it, but you must see it before it impresses you. When you see the natives culti vating the little plots-about 30ft. square, ploughing with a wooden plough, and raising water from the wells with an ox turning a large wheel, you would marvel that people of such an old country could be so primitive. It is an irrigable dis trict all along the line, with the excep tion of odd patches. "Wearrivpd at Elnier, the Heliopolis station, at dusk.
