POWER OF RECOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 25 August 1914
POWER OF RECOVERY. Mahy young people may be dis appointed that we are not in the centre 'of 'the fight. They would like to. be striking in this supreme crisis for right and liberty. But war is no picnic, not even for an idyllic death. It is ugly vicious ness, spreading ruin and degra dation, and its company is dirt, disease and lust. Our share in the world's horrors may be drab and dull, but it is far more toler ,able than the desolation of homes, and the ghastly torture of beautiful young life. And our power of re cuperation makes us specially well circumstanoed. We will recover quickly, for our trade is in pri mary produce, for which the de niand is 'unlimited. We will even profrt greatly, for exhausted Euro pean countries will not bid in the market against us, and there will be rich harvests in good pricos for wool, grain, 'dairy produce, miner als and meat. The staple indus tries represent three-fourths of our wealth, ind are the bulk of our employment; and many of our manufactu...
AUSTRALIANS AS EUROPEAN WARRIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 25 August 1914
AUSTRALTANS AS EUROPEAN WARRIORS. Good progress is being made with training and equipment of the expeditionary force of 20,000 men. Australia is giving her best. It will be an army representing. the flowwer of The Commonwe.th. The call seems to have appealed prin cipally to the strongest and mos.t intelligent among our young men, for the volunteers excell in physi que and character. Such is thd view of experienced men who have seen the armies of th& world, and who agree that the recruits are of the best possible type. Numbers have been insufficient in Victoria, but throughout Australia there have been many more eligible ap plicants than there are positions (?'he despatch of these Australians brings the fighting very newr to the Australian homes. It makes us realise that we are in truth at war, that the struggle has called us to hae a hand in thg supreme effort, and that blood and muscle are needed to repel a cruel tyrant, and to prevent militarists from mauling civilization....

THE THREE AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 25 August 1914
THE THREE AUSTRALIANS No men triore thoroughly realise the seriousness of the position than the three men who to-day are guid ing Austra'ia's destinies-Mr. Cook Mr. E. D. Millen, and Sir William Irvine. They are in daily conimu nication with London; have lear ned from the London government of the many stern aspects of the crisis, and know. from their own financial, naval, and military offi cers of the supreme dangers of the civilised world. Yet they are al ways cheerful,' enthusiastic and optimistic, and their consistently bright bearing is sufficient to allay public anxiety. They know more than they can at present tell the public; but ithat the news 'is good is evident from their confident smi les. "All is well," is the message that flashed rout from London, and there is little cause to doubt that all will be well in the end; though we shall have many reverses, and many sad losses of good ships and good men. The scene at Federal head quarters has been distinguis shed throughout by ...
THE NAVIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 25 August 1914
THE NAVIES. 'The difference between the two flagships, Iron Duke and Fredrich der Grosse, illustrates the difter ence between the two navies. Jel licoe's ship is 26,400 tons, has a speed of 24- knots, ten 13.5 inch guns, mounted in double turrets on tthe centre line, twelve 6-inch guns a.s a torpedo craft repelling armament, two twelve pounders for air-craft, and a huge weight of armour. The German flagship car ries on 12-inch guns, and is of 23,310 displacement. Happily, there are four more Iron Dukes rapidly approaching completion. They may eve.n now be steaming out to join their mighty sister ship. Indeed, every week that passes without a blash between the two dreadnought fleets increases Great 'Britain's chance. True, there may be weakening through the attacks from the German submarines and destroyers; but Great Britain has 13 battleships, building, and these are being hurried,. fo?ward. And there are little Turkey's two dread noughts, .which will in a few weeks be commissioned,...

"THE SECOND COMING -OE CHRIST." Another crowded congregation filled the Presbyterian Church on Sunday evening, to listen to the Rev. Jas. Smith's special talk on ".The Second Coming of Christ."

(John, 14-3) '" He shall so come in a like man ner as ye have seen them go into Heaven (Acts 1-9) who is the bles sed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord ot lords. (lst Tim. 6-15). The preacher remar ked that the Second Advent was one of the most frequent y inisted truths of the New Testament; its 260 chapters containing no less than 300 references to the subject The Bible distinctly disclosed three dispensations-the first from Mo ses to the birth of Christ, the se cond, dating from Christ's appear ance, was still continuing, and the third would run from the ful filment of this Age, when Christ re-appeared to rule His Kingdom in perfect righteousness. The time was unknown, and undisclo sed, and though some students had venttired to ...

PATRIOTIC SERVICE. " The Call of the Empire"'' was :the title of a patriotic sermon prea ched by the Rev. W. H. Scurrin the Methodist church on Sunday morning. There was a large congregation. The church was lavishly decorated with flags, representing all parts of the empire; the hymns chosen from the Methodist hymn book were all patriotic; and the singing of the choir, under Mr. L.
