ENGLAND AND THE WAR SPECIAL OVERSEAS LETTER. From the London "Daily Mail." London, September 26. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914

ENGLAND AND THE WAR) SPECIAL OVERSEAS LETTER. V From the London "Daily Mail." London, September 26. Two scenes that I witnessed at Waterloo station within a few lionrs of each other on Sunday last helped to bring the reality of the war home to me. A regiment was off to Alder shot before proceeding to the front. ' Every carriage was packed with men, and the wives and sweethearts and children had crowded around to bid farewell. All were determined to look happy. The soldiers started their choruses with the favorite, "It's a Long, Long Way to Tipperary" pre dominating. The wives and sweet hearts laughed and cheered. I saw a little girl of eight clinging to her daddy, a fine-looking sergeant, as though she could not let him go. Now a wile bit her lips and forced a smile, determined that her man should not :;ne her shrinking back, resolved that no giancp. on her part should unnerve i'Hii.

"GOOD FOR EVIL." [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914

"GOOD FOR EVIL." "When we enter Germany I .hope General Joffre will issue a proclama tion reminding everybody concerned tliat to the soldiers of the Allies the lives of women, children and non combatants are sacred," says Gus tavo Herve, the French Socialist. "When we are before Cologne our 75 (the deadly JJ^in. French field gun) must be told—our soldiers do not need the reminder—that Cologne con tains one of the Seven Wonders of the World, which must not be touched. And at Munich, Dresden and Berlin, a guard of honor must be placed be fore every library, museum and art gallery. Our conduct in Germany I must be so different from that of the I Germans in Belgium and France that the very stones will recognise that our victory is the victory of civilisa tion." i

THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 December 1914

THE DAY. "You spied for the'Day, you lied '' for the Day, And woke the Day's red spleen." Monster, who asked God's aid Divine, Then strewed his seas with the ghast , ly mine; : ■Not all the waters o£ the Rhine • ' Pan Avasli thy foul hands clean. "You have sown for the Day, you . have grown for the Day; I Yours is. the harvest red. Can you hear the groans and the awful cries? Can you see the heap of slain that lies, And sightless turned to the flame-split skies The glassy eyes of the dead? "But after the Day there's a price to pay. For the sleepers under the sod, And He you have mocked for many a day— Listen and hear what He has to say: 'Vengeance is mine, I will repay,' WHAT CAN YOU SAY TO GOD?" —'Henry Cliappel in "Daily Express."

"Eagles" Above Guns.—Lord Castle reagh's Tribute to Daring Aviators. . Ill a letter dated September 25, Lord Castlereagh, the member lor Maid stone, who is at the front, says: — "Tlie tiling that has impressed me most here lias been the aeroplane service, a splendid lot of 13oys who really do not know what fear is. The Germans shoot shrapnel at them, and you see the aeroplane like a dragon fly in the air, and then a lot of little puffs of white smoke, which are the shells bursting. Luckily the shots are very wide, and so far none have been 'brought down. One man was shot in the thigh by a German air mail whom lie was chasing. I watch ed for 25 minutes an aeroplane doing what is called "ranging" l'or a bat tery of heavy guns. The aeroplane watches where the shells drop, and then signals to say where the shells are falling—whether too far or not far enough. This aeroplane was be ing shelled by tlie enemy with shrap nel, and three times it flew round and showed the battery where they w...

One of the prisoners, who was very seedy (at a place which, of course, I cannot name), was taken compassion on by his escort, who was one of our Hussars. Tommy offered him a drink of rum, which he swal lowed as if lie were parched. He took it too quickly, with the result that it made him vomit, and what do •you think his stomach threw up? Why, grass and oats! This may sound an exaggeration, but I saw it myself.'"
