FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES ; Most prisoners will reform if you give them time., } Some elderly clliircli ladies are quite shocked at the-language of a certain clergyman.. The other day he was reported to have used the word "damn." It reminds us of a story of an Adelaide Bishop, Dr. Kennion, now of Bath, England. He was standing waiting for one of those slow horse trams rightv in front of a small pro vision shop. A little larrikin was be hind him, and remarked to himself, but audibly, "By Gawd, I wish 1 had one of thein apple pies." "For shame," said the Bishop, "can't you talk bet- '• ter than that?" "Well, you often do the same," said the youngster. "If you ever find me at it," said his Lord ship, "I'll buy you lis many pies as you like." A few Sundays later, while his Lordship was discoursing he used the Almighty's name rather frequent ly. "By God, we live. By God, we die," said the Bishop. Then in the intense silence of the church. "By Gawd you owe me a apple pie," came a voice from th...
THE WAR GAME. A correspondent sends what he describes as being the latest from the war: [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
THE WAR GAME. I A correspondent sends what lie de | scribes as being the latest Irom tlia (war: — "I'll go one," said Russia. "I'll go two," said France. "I'll go three," said Belgium. "If they only give me a cliauee, "I'll go four," said Germany, "And wipe you from the map." But they all dropped dead When John Bull said, "I'll go nap!" In the merry waltz of life we should learn to reverse gracefully. This is the finest bit of war verse that we have read:— TO WOMEN. Your hearts are lifted up, your hearts : That have foreknown the utter price; Your hearts burn upwards as a flame Of splendor and of sacrifice. For you, you too to battle go, 1 Not with the marching1 drums and cheers, But in the watch of solitude And through the boundless night of fears. Swift, swifter thaii those hawks of ■war, Those threatening wihgs that pulsd the air; Far as the vanward ranks are set; You are gone before them, you are there! And hot a shot comes blind with death, And not a stab of steel is pressed Ho...

EATEN BY LIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
EATEN BY LIONS. Killed and partially eaten by six lions, a young tamer lias met with a terrible death at Chicago. The vic tim, Mr. Emerson Dietrich, twenty live years old, the son of a wealthy Brooklyn architect, left home recently to learn the trade of lion taming. The [lions belong to Miss Adgie Costello, to whom Mr. Dietrich had just be come engaged, and forCwliom he was 1 acting as manager. Miss Costello and &lt; | her lions had an engagement at a i Chicago music-hall, and the animals hvere in their cage in a goods car on a railway siding. Miss Costello had ' gone to visit friends, and Mr. Diet rich took advantage of her absence to enter the cage with all the lions( al though he had been warned not to go in with more than three at once.

Five of the lions are cubs, and the sixth, which is named Trilby, is their mother. One of the cubs named Ted dy was Mr. ...
DOOMED TO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
DOOMED TO DEATH. Not all the men, and especially not al-1 the oflicers, who die 111 this war will be killed by Hie bullets of the enemy. In all campaigns that have ever taken place a number of men are doomed to death directly the guns begin to shoot (says an English ex change). There is always a rough kind of justice about these executions —for that is what .they amount to. An officer has incurred the hatred of his men, he has shown himself a beast, but not a just beast, and when the war comes there comes also the opportunity for-revenge. In the heat of a general action there is no time to inquire whether a man receives his wound from the front or from the back.
"MADE IN GERMANY." DECALOGUE OF THE GERMAN CONSUMER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
"MADE IN GERMANY." DECALOGUE OF THE GERMAN CONSUMER, The following copy ol' the German decalogue is a translation from a cir cular of which millions of copies have been printed and distributed by.the Chambers of Commerce of Berlin aiid | other German cities during the past year or two. Australians should take this to heart and make out a decalogue for themselves, and rigidly follow it, conserving their own interests and those of Great Britain and the Allies. German consumer, remember always that your duties enjoin upon you the observance of the following:— First—In your purchases, no mat ter how small, do not lose sight , of the interests of your countrymen and the fatherland. Second—Do not forget that when you purchase a foreign product, even jthough you spend only a penny, you diminish in so much the fortune (prosperity) of your fatherland. Third—Your money should benefit only German merchants and German workmen. Fourth—Do not profane the German land, tlic German house, the German...
"Darlings" in Kilts. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
"Darlings" in Kilts. j A lady resident in Paris who volun teered tis a nurse writes from tlie Anierican-Ambulance, Lycee Pasteur, Paris:— i "The first to come in were some of the Argyll and Sutherland Highland ers, and we could just have hugged them in their lrilts. Poor darlings, they were so glad to have a hot bath, and a nice clean bed to sleep on. We have a good number of Turcos, too, and they are so patient and brave. Most that we have at present are wounded in the lower limbs, but one poor Englishman was thrown from his horse, who kicked him in the back, and then several others rode over him. They are all most anxious to have another whack at the Germans. An English Tommy this morning said of the lighting, 'It's hard, but it's good.' He had a spreading bullet ex tracted from his leg. They are being most awfully spoilt here—cigarettes, pipes, tobacco, all the illustrated papers, flowers, sweets, and what-not. We have two dear boys whom we call 'the babies.'" i

j POST-BAG OF THE WAR. LETTERS FROM. THE FIGHTING 'LINE. I • r • ' i 1 Prodigious Valor in Thick of Fight. A British cavalry officer—who lias taken part in many engagements in France narrates in a letter to a rela tive here some stirring experiences. He says— | )'"I shall never forget how a splen ' (liclly-made trooper of tlie , with his shirt in ribbons, actually stooped so low from his saddle as to snatch a wounded comrade from instant death at the hands of a powerful Ger man. And then, having swung the man right round to the near side, he made him hang on to the stirrup leather whilst he lunged his sword clean through the German's neck and severed his windpipe as cleanly as would do it in the operating thea ' tre. A young lancer, certainly not more' than twenty, stripped of tunic ' and shirt, and fighting in his vest, charged a German who had fired on a wounded man and pierced him to the heart; seizing the German's horse as_he fell, he exchanged it for liis own, which had got bad...
PRO PATRIA. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
PRO PATRIA. The following appropriate and line ly-expresseci poem appeared in London "Punch" shortly after the declaration of war: — England, in this great light to which you go Because, where Honor calls you, you must go, Be glad, whatever comes, at least to know Vou have your quarrel just. I'eace was your care; before the na tion's Bar ller cause you pleaded and her ends you sought; But not for her sake, being •..•hat you are, Could you be bribed and bought. Others may spurn the pledge of land to land, May with the brute sword stain a gallant past; But by the seal to which you have set your hand, Thank God, you still stand fast. Forth, theri) to front that peril of the deep With smiling lips and in your eyes the liglit, Steadfast and confident, of those who keep Their storied 'scutcheon bright. And we, whose burden is to watch and waMt— High-hearted ever, strong in faith and prayer— We ask what offering we may con secrate, What humble service share.? To steel our souls against the...
RULES OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
RULES OF WAR. The'"poisoning of wells and streams is strictly forbidden under the inter national rules of war. It is, liowever, just as permissable to cut off your enemy's water supply as it is to cut off food supplies. It is not "etiquette" in battle - to endeavor to shoot the commander of a force unless he persistently and un necessarily exposes himself to fire, j Still, every effort to capture a com mander may be made.
Six Streets of Widows.—British Colonel's Throat Cut in Crusade of Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
Six Streets of Widows.—British Colonel's Throat Cut in Crusade of Murder. Private J. Atkinson, Duke of Wel lington's Regiment, who is now in hospital, says in a letter to liis wife— "It is not war. It is murder. The Germans are murdering our wounded as fast as they come across them. I gave myself up for done, as we were in the thick of the light at Hons. Our regiment started lighting with 1009, and finished with 106 and three ofli cers; so we just lost 900. It was cruel. At one place we were at, call ed Amiens,; there were six streets of the town where all the women were left widows, and were all wearing widows' weeds. The French regiment that fought there was made up in the town, and they got wiped out. Our colonel got wounded, and then the Germans attacked him and cut liis. throat."

j Gunners Take the Cake.—Enemy j Reel and Stagger Like Drunken i Men. A "soldier" writes:— j "The Kaiser's famous crushing ma chine turns out- to be au easily de moralised crowd o£ automatic, soul less clods, who don't know the mean ing of individual effort and efficiency. Take away their driving power (the fear of their brutal officers) and they stand a useless mass of brainless, be I wiklered men. Their artillery, is 'grand; their shooting deadly accur ate, as we found out to our cost. Their guns throw a far heavier shell than ours; it explodes with a deafening crash. At Cambrai and Mons the air was simply alive with them, and how any man lived through it was a . marvel. What with the terrific noise ' and the perpetual hiss and whistle o£ bullets, the place was a hell on earth.. Only the excitement of firing, I think, kept our men so cool. The cool yet rapid shooting of our fellows proved too much even for the vast crowd that never seemed to thin out. They staggered and reeled bac...
THE KRUPP MONSTER. MOST POWERFUL WEAPON IN HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914
THE KRUPP MONSTER. MOST POWERFUL WEAPON IN HISTORY. The pinnacle - of German war science is the 42 centimetre (13.Sin.) ICrupp mortar, the most miraculous and powerful weapon designed in the j history of war. The Krupp mortar is the one unique and astonishing product of this month of lighting. It has smash ed apparently Liege and Nainur, and battered down the defences of Ant werp. j The Krupp mortar is.known only by a few. I For eight years the Krupps work ed at the secret while guarding it : carefully. This mortar fires the larg est and most dangerous projectile ever siiot from a weapon. In making it 110 single workman worked on more than one small piece, and one vital part of the machinery was made in Austria. Even the artillery subcommittee of the bundesrath was not informed this year. It was merely asked to with hold debate on the artillery situa tion, as something "extraordinary" was being provided. That something extraordinary was first seen when the Liege forts, which could w...
