Violef COUDH Senrinel Published Every Tuesd^ Morning TUESDAY, JULST 27, 1915. WEDNESDAY, 4th Aug.,will be the anni versary of the great war. For twelve months Europe has been the scene of a titanic struggle such as the earth IISB never seen. The Mood spilled may literally bo spoken of as H sea, the killed and ivounded on each side amounting to Millions of m»n, while treasure has been expended with such libefality as threat ens ti hring about world-baokriiptcy. What, the colossal war is about, is a problem to many minds; when it will end, is another. It must be confessed that at this moment Germany holds a much more commanding position than was considered possible six months ago. She has held the British and French fold's. rolled back the Russians, put up a stiff obstacle at Gallipoli, snd has overawed KoumMiia, Bulgaria and other stales into neutrality. While seemingly successful in the directions indicated, we must bear in mind that the Allies' plan of campaign is evidently to tire...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
PROM VARIOUS SOURCES. An Adelaide journalist has been hunting through Shakespeare to find quotations applying to the Kaiser, Crown Prince and Admiral Tirpitz. Here is the result ' THE KAISER. I have touched the highest point of all my greatness; And from that full meridian of my glory, I haste now to my setting; I shall fall Like a bright exhalation in the even ing, And no man can see me more. -"Henry,VIII." To hell, allegiance! Vows to the blackest devil! Conscience and grace to the profound est pit. "Hamlet." And thus I clothe my naked villainy With odd old ends stol'n from Holy Writ; And seem a saint when most I play the devil. "Richard III." THE CROWN PRINCE. A suapper-up of unconsidered trifles. "Winter's Tale." I myself am indifferent honest. "Hamlet." This intolerable deal of sack. "Henry IV." Flat burglary as ever was committed. "Much Ado About Nothing." Convey, the wise it call. Steal? Oh! a flco for the phrase! "Merry Wives of Windsor." ADMIRAL TIRPITZ. I will roar you as ...
WOMEN IN THE TRENCHES Bavarian Brutality Towards French Girls. Stripped to Wait on Officers. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
WOMEN IN THE TRENCHES Bavarian Brutality Towards French Girts. Stripped to Wait on Officers. A long and interesting letter lias been written by one of the French Red Cross. The writer says It is related tliat during the Jap-Rus sian war certain Japanese ladies al lowed their refilled instincts to be overcome by their patriotic feeling and proceeded to the front to enliven the hard camp lives of their fighting countrymen. Well, I don't expect the odds and ends of feminine attire found in German billets belong to any such high-flown frauleins, but so convinced were the Bodies that tliey would hold their lines for keeps that tliey had their women in the support trenches to assist them to while away the long hours of waiting. Ofiicers and men all apparently let their hearty appetites have full swing. The awful tales of vicious seances which the poor wo men victims have rendered to us are enough to enrage the most even tem perament. Girls of 15 I have actually seen with their baby faces ...
PUNISHABLE BY DEATH SOLDIER GUILTY OF SELFMAIMING.' Amazing Story at a Court Martial. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
PUNISHABLE BY DEATH SOLDIER GUILTY OF SELF MAIMING.' Amazing Story at a Court Martial. In all wars there" have been sug gestions that some of those likely to be ealleij on to serve, or even those on active service, have made them selves ill, or even gone as far asto maim themselves, in order to escape the tasks and terrors in' front of them. There-has; liappilyj never been any suggestion of that kind in the Austra lian troops, but Private Bavin, of the 4th Royal Dragoons, has just been found guilty by court martial of such an offeiice-it is punishable by death. It was alleged that lie chopped off the top of his thumb in order to avoid service. ., . .. - Evidence was given-that Bavin was at a military detention barracks and was served'with a razor for shaving purposes. A feyv minutes .later he was found .with the top of his thumb cut off and the razor lying in a pool of blood. Accused denied that the injury was done wilfully. He had no proper razor-strop, and used his braces fas tene...
At the Seaside. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
At the Seaside. I spent Bank Holiday at a seaside town, some sixty or seventy miles from London. On an average Whit Monday this toivn is crammed with people, not only from London but from all the Sussex and Surrey country towns adjoining. This year there were practically none of these day trippers. Almost every house, how ever, had its family of Londoners who had come down for a week or two. The shopkeepers and lodging-house keepers told me that they had looked forward to a record season. Their bouses and apartments were letting as they had never (lone before. Some Londoners -were sending their wives and children away to the south coast to be out of reach of possible danger during the Zeppelin attack. Others who usually visit the east coast had now gone south. The sands were a sight, with the hundreds of orderly little family parties-the children making sand castles, the mothers placidly looking on, the fathers bare legged and coatless joining the hoys in a rare day's fun. It seemed...
WAR BABES OF EUROPE. THE FRUITS OF GERMAN "KULTUR." FRANCE AND BELGIUM TAKE STEPS TO MEET SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
[ WAR BABES OF EUROPE. THE FRUITS OF GERMAN "KULTUR." FRANCE AND BELGIUM TAKE STEPS TO MEE.T SITUATION. I Of all the, grave problems confront ling Europe just now, none is arousing I more comment and controversy than | that of the "war babies." It is most serious in Belgium and Northern France, where large numbers of Bel gian and French women have already i or are about to become mothers of babies whose fathers are German sol fliers. Many of these women have ' been the unwilling victims of the .sol- J (liory, and such is the feeling arous ed that, in Belgium, priests have open ly advised women to commit infanti cide rather than rear the children of the invaders. Germany has also taken action; many of the expected babies aio to be taken imo Uerjnany and brought up there as Germans. Already associations of German women have been formed and representatives sent to Belgium to carry out this plan. France, too, lias ?i problem like that of Belgium on her hands in those districts of the no...
BELGIAN BURGOMASTER'S BURLESQUE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
BELGIAN BURGOMASTER'S BURLESQUE. The war has brought to light a brilliant humorist in the person of Adolphe Max, ex-burgomaster of Brus. sels. When the Huus marched into the capital with brass band effects and howls of "Deutschland uber Al les," Max took a lot of the sting out of the spectacle by riding on an ab surd little horse at the head of the procession. The Teutons, who are no toriously unsusceptible to the finer shades of irony, mistook Max's appear ance for a diplomatist's acceptance of a painful situation, whereas it was really an exhibition of heroic impu dence and unconquerable levity smil ing bravely in the face of disaster. The Bruxellois were tremendously heartened by this exploit, and when the arrogant German General com manded 300 beds for himself and his following in the Town Hall, the citi zens sniggered covertly to learn that their indomitable Mayor had ordered 301, with the firm intention of occupy ing the extra himself in order to main tain his status and sleep...
GERMANS' STRATEGY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
GERMANS' STRATEGY. A good deal of curiosity was created in Wangaratta Inst year by the disovery that a foreigner was engaged in driving nil elaborate tunnel in the pnddock of Messrs Flanagan, Newman and Co., or. Parfitt road, and the apparent absence of motive led to the conclusion by tlie police that the mm was an eccentric character who was rather :i subject of pity than one who had sinster designs. There are residentsof the town, however, who believe that the man should have been kept under surveillance at any rate, and their opinion receives support by n discovery recently made in the Island of CorEu, in tho Mediteranean Sea, where the Kaiser of Germany has a villa. A few days since it was reported by cable thot this island was being made a store house for petrol and that several Germans, posing as arcliaeologisls, had explored the cnast and that wireless was being installed. Mr W. Finucane, of Melbourne, writing subsequently to tlio "Argus," related that friends in Corfu bud in...

MIXED METAPHORS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
MIXED METAPHORS. This is an extract from the.report ot a congress dealing with sweated labor held in London:-"Mr. Thorn ton Burke gave a terrible picture o£ life in* the East End of London, where, he said, there were thousands of people grinding their faces in the dust of poverty and trying at the same time to keep their heads above water." jA temperance advocate once ex claimed: "Let us take our guns, on our shoulders and 'plough the waste places till the good ship Temperance sails over the land!" A well-known preacher is credited with the declaration -that "William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, never made a treaty with the, Indians and never broke one."
LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, May 29. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, May We are enjoying some o£ the finest weather London has known for a long time. Whitsuntide was perfect, and day by day since then we have had cloudless skies, brilliant sunshine, and daylight lasting until late in the avening. It is hot enough for August. There were none of the usual Whit Monday excursions, and despite the fine weather the traffic out of town was less than it has been for many a year. The authorities made great ef forts to resume the London tramway service on Monday, enlisting clerks and officials, but the attempt was a very partial success. The strikers are now apparently a little ashamed of their action. Every train, every omni bus, every possible means of convey ance was packed at Whitsun to over flowing. Numbers of Londoners, re cognising the impossibility of getting out of town in the omnibuses and un able to pay the full fares to the sea side, made the best of the time they could in London itself and rediscov ered the b...
"THE FINGER OF GOD." [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
"THE FINGER OF GOD." As King William III. of England, the Stadtholder of tlie Netherlands, was besieging Namur early in April, 1695, sundry soldiers from his army, through the want which reigned in tli? camp, went marauding, though such a trans gression of the martial law had been forbidden on pain of death. Most of these marauders were caught by the country people and kill ed; only two of them reached the camp unscathed, but they were sen tenced to death. They were both brave soldiers; and the GeneraMn .Chief wanted to save one of them, and;thus commuted the Judgment so far that1 they should be allowed to throw at dice for'their life. ; On the morning appointed for the . execution, the condemned were led to1 a drum, in order thereupon to cast the decisive throw, while at a few paces further the fatal pole already stood-erect. Full of painful expecta tion, a group of officers, the regimental chaplain, and the executioner sur rounded the poor fellows. With a trembling hand one of the...
Absent-Minded Vicar. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
Absent-Minded Vicar. The vicar of S Is very patriotic anil lias done a great deal of recruit ing in bis own and the adjoining par ishes. He. is also very absent-mind ed, This was never so forcibly brought home to him as on the occa sion of the young squire's wedding. Tile squire's regiment was leaving al most immediately for the Front, con sequently the wedding attracted more than ordinary Interest, and' the little church was crowded to its ut most capacity. The ceremony proceeded without a liitch, the momentous words had been spoken by the vicar, and repeated by the bridegroom ; . . "take thee, Phyl lis, to my wedded wife," 'When the cpugregatiou were astounded, by the next, words, from" the vicar, "for three years or the duration of tho war"
STOPPING A BANK-NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
STOPPING A BANK-NOTE. From time to time you read of bank notes being "stopped," and it is a popular impression that tne Bank of England, having: been notified not to pay a note that lias gone astray, the bank lias no choice but to refuse pay ment of that note if it should be pre sented. This is, however, quite an erroneous idea, for such a note is a promise by the bank to pay the bearer a certain sum on demand, a negotiable instrument transferable by mere de livery. The Bank of England lias legally no power to refuse payment, and if it had such power it would be a serious thing, for a Bank of England note is legal tender to any amount, and unless it were in fact as good as money it would be impossible to carry on busi ness. But what the bank will do is to de lay as long as possible the payment of the note, thereby giving the loser an opportunity of establishing, if he can, his title to it as against the person pre-; senting it, but if the bank should re fuse to pay a note on demand,...

On Board a Troopship. Somewhere, Sometime. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 July 1915
BY PRIVATE T. A. SAXON. &nbsp; Somewhere. Sometime Since I last wrote we have call &nbsp; ed at a port: which I must not &nbsp; name, and had a march ashore for two hours through the main &nbsp; &nbsp; parts of the town, which is very &nbsp; picturesque with its cocoanut-palms and tropical plants antd shrubs. We put in nearly two days here, and I got some coins and other &nbsp; things as mementos. The first &nbsp; &nbsp; glimpse of ____was the rugged and &nbsp; mountainous coastline of ______ &nbsp; but we were many miles away. I had a look through glasses, and &nbsp; them seemed terribly steep and precipiteus. Later on we sighted &nbsp; some coral atolls, with a big white lighthouse thereon--but my &nbsp; geography is not too strong and &nbsp; I could not say what islands they were. At our next port we are &nbsp; &nbsp; to learn our destination. We...
UNDER FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
UNDER FIRE. Solitary, unsupported, for the space of a quarter of an hour he had with stood the fire of the enemy. He had been struck more than once, but his wounds were not severe enough to drive him from Ills post. With a ten acity horn of a sense of exaltation ho clung to ills position, whilst the mis siles hurtled over and around him. A kind of madness, a veritable frenzy tool: possession of him, and with wav ing arms lie strove to raise his voice above the deafening din. The thought of retreat never entered his mind. He was prepared for martyrdom. His unheard mouthings and wild and uncouth gestures seemed to in crease the rage of the enemies ar rayed against him. Their fire became more rapid and more accurate. They had found the range. Yet still lie stood erect, defiant, and-alone. But suddenly a shell, aimed with devilish precision, rose from the ranks of the foe, described its trajectory, and struck him full in the face . . . With a muttered curse, wiping the evil-smelling yol...
