Problem of Position in Connec tion with the Present War. A British .Torpedo boat .which had a crew of 15 attacked and sank a German Torpedo destroyer. The captain of the British boat—being a true British officer and not- wishing ■ to take life .where it could... be avoided—succeeded^in . rescuing 15 German sailors.

The Muse of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

The-'Muse of Australia. Where the pines with the eagles are nettled in rifts, And the torrent leaps down to the surges, I have foilowed her, clambering over the . cliffs, : " : .By the chasms : and moon-haunted verges. . i know she'-is-fair as the angels are fair, , -For have .L not caught a faint glimpse of her there, A 'glimpse of-her, face and her- glittering, hair, . And a hand with the Harp of Australia ? I never can reach you to hear the : sweet r voice So full with the music of fountains ! Oh. when will. you . meet with that soul of your choice Who will lead you down here from the mountains ? A lyre-bird lit on a shimmering space, ' It dazzled mine eyes, and I turned from the i)lace, _ v- ' ■ And wept in the dark for a glorious face And a hand with the Harp of Australia: HENRY KENDALL.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. It was at a popular vaudeville per formance. The celebrated necroman cer and professor of white, black and pink magic was doing wonders on the stage, and suddenly, after picking all sorts of things out of solid lumps of furniture, he sailed down among the occupants of the stalls, and began to lift miscellaneous goods and chattels, traps and ware out of their clothes. Presently he fastened on a bashful gentleman of some political eminence, ana pulled a rabbit out of the back of his coat. Not satisfied with his find, he extracted a clutch of chickens from Ms breast pocket, and pulled two small rabbits and a fowl from his vest. The next dive produced a guinea-pig, and later two white mice and a pigeon were taken from the left leg of the politician's pants. Then the wizard stood up and bowed to the applauding audience. But through the hand-clap ping one roaring voice thundered: "Go on, boss, you haven't finished with him yet. He's got a rat!" That produced fifty ti...

PICTURE SHOW HEROICS. A BOY HOUSEBREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

PICTURE SHOW HEROICS. A BOY HOUSEBREAKER. "Your imagination might have been affected by picture shows, but you must not/carry out in practice of fences that seem to you heroic," said Judge Docker, addressing a juvenile prisoner at the Darlinghurst Quarter Sessions. A boy in knickerbockers, Hubert Leslie Hovendene, had plead ed guilty to breaking and entering several dwelling-houses. The boy • stole money, jewellery, and other valuables in the houses. In sentencing the boy, Judge Docker said he was at a loss to know the best method of dealing with him. The evidence at the lower court showed that the prisoner had said he blamed picture shows for his downfall. He had spent day after day at them in Sydney. There had been 14 charges of breaking and entering against the prisoner at the Children's Court, and during the committing of offences pri soner had been armed with a revol ver.
