HOME FROM THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
HOME FROM THE FRONT. The visitor was the centre o£ at traction in the club sinokiug-room, and, they listened with bated breath as he told his tale. "It was a fearful scene, I can tell you," said the young man, "simply fearful. For eight hours the Germans showered shells upon us. We thought, of course, that this was preparatory to an assault, and the tension on our side was terrible. To speak for my self, I could hardly hold out till they came; I had spent days in feverish waiting for them, and now I was standing at the place assigned to me -well covered, of course-firmly re solved to carry out my task to the end, come what would. . . . And then tliey came on. As soon as they were near enough I began to turn the han dle. They withered under the fire, the few who remained fell back. Five minutes' rest. Then a fresh attack. Again I worked unwearily; again the assault falls. Five minutes' blessed quiet and then a fresh assault, this time with increased numbers. On, on, they came to be r...

THE DOG SPY TALE-BEARER TO THE TRENCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
THE DOG SPY TALE-BEARER TO THE TRENCHES.! Wounded Canadians in hospital tell a story of how a nest of spies was discovered iu Northern France. Some where near the billets and firing line there stood a coffee house inhabited by five people, including a boy. The troops on their way to the trenches used to call for refreshments, and the occupants consequently had excep tional opportunities of obtaining valu able information and always had a fairly good idea of the strength of the forces holding the section ol' the tren ches. The Germans in that part seemed to be well-informed of what was go ing on in front of them. Regiments arriving Unexpectedly and without even the knowledge of the regiments in the trenches were hailed by name by the Germans. The coffee house was suspected, but continual search revealed nothing. Once a soldier heard a conversation in German, but again a fresh search revealed nothing. At length the boy gave away the secret, and it was dis» covered that a dog had been ...
District News and Notes. BALMATTUM. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
BALMATTUM. Lamb-marking has commenced, and, contrary to expectation!!, promises to be good in spite of the adverse conditions earlier in the year. The percentage will be well ap to previous records. Those that have marked averaged from 80 to 90 per cent. It is again with pleasnre I have to announce: that another of our yoqng men, Mr F. Clement, has started out in life, having joined the service of the National Bank, and took his departure for Rainbow last week.- He-has the districts congratulations and I am sure snoh an exemplary young man will make a mark in his fntuie wort. In every local effort he was always to the front in assisting in the progress of the dis trict, and his departure will uccasion much regret, being a member of the Presbyterian Church choir, football and tennis clnb. For tho latter, he wan one - of its niost onlhurtiustjc players and supporters.

GAS POISON AGONIES. Terrible Pen Picture of the Ghastly Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
GAS POISON AGONIES, j Terrible Pen Pioture of .the Ghastly Crime. What horror follows on a German attack with poison gases, and what pain tor the unfortunate soldier caught unprepared, are described very vivid ly in this letter from a cavalry oflicer: I saw a gunner urging a tired horse along p.t a gallop down the street. I got him to slow up enough to elicit the curt reply, "Big gun-gas attack," and the tired horse was once more shaken up into a gallop, slipping about over the cobbles. But the guns must have' the ammunition, and the poor horse must be spurred and flogged to get it up quick. By this time (al though I was four or five miles from the firing line) my eyes were water ing freely. Along the road were coming some of the victims of the terrible gas. They slouched along like drunken men, hardly any of them had kept rifle or equipment. All were gasping and coughing, blindly stag gering on-away from the gas. It was a terrible sight. Many of them were undoubtedly brave men, but...

TEN MILLION HUNS WHAT THE ALLIES HAVE TO FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
TEN MILLION HUNS WHAT THE ALLIES HAVE FACE. Impressions of a "well-known busi ness man from the Central West," who has just returned after spending several weeks near the battle front of one or other o£ the belligerents, are given great prominence in the last issue of the New York "Evening Post" to hand. Of Germany he says she has enough foodstuffs on hand and in sight to carry her through the war with rea sonable economy. It is estimated that there are about seven million men in the German Army at the present time and three million more training. It is the intention of Germany to main tain' the Army at the maximum strength of ten million men. "There is plenty of copper. In the five years preceding the war Germany imported a million tons of copper. The entire country is under cultivation. When the German farmer needs assist ance he goes to the nearest concentra lion camp and asks for the number of men he needs." Of France this -American says: "While she has suffered more heavily tha...

EAST'S FIRST CASE. The Story of a Theft that showed a Detective at his worst—and best. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 August 1915
j EAST'S FIRST CASE. The Story of a Theft that showed Detective at his worst-and best. By Violet M. Metbley. Horvey East yawned and glanced at his.watch. It was too dark to see the country through which 'tlic train was passing, and )iis solitary com panion was in no way companionable. East suddenly realised that, since leaving Liverpool Street nearly an hour before, the man in the opposite corner had scarcely stirred, had novel lowered the outspread sheets o£ a daily newspaper, which he held as a shield before his face. Nothing of his person was visible save two blue serge trousered legs and n pair of tan ] boots. Both the feet and the hands which held the newspaper were singu larly small, and 011 the little finger of the right hand was a curiously chased gold ring. Not much material 011 which to exercise the powers of deduction of a detective, travelling northwards to in vestigate his first important case. East was very young and very keen; as to his professional capabilities, this...
