Written cspecially for "The Peter# burt Timet" by S.4lsj*r B. A. Clarke. CHAPTER XX. , ' Things got very busy on the King's Birthday, the navy once more opened on soma new-found target, and the old-accustomed roar was once again at large. "Reuter" quotes a correspon dent's description of the shelling of the forts by the guns of the fleet at the time when Fort Chahak, on the Asiatic side, was coming'in for attention. He writes:-"The thunder of the guns be comes louder every minute, the very air quivers, and houses 'totter;/shells are flying from right to left,, and there seems to be no place fromf which one can watch with any degree of security. The apparent' concentration of fire" on the ground around the fort, obliges us , to think of cover, and we took refuge behind a wall. But soon a shower of stones ayd rubbish, and the acrid fumes of high explosives, told us we had bet ter move elsewhere..

THE HOME-GOTNG TROOP SHIPS. Nothing lingers more in th« mind of the returned soldier than his expe rience on the troopship which brought him home. Men who took part in the South African war have most unpleas ant recollections in this connection Much of the disorder on troopships that then existed was due to the ab sence of any organized attempt to increase the comfort of the men pn board ship. , >.Tbe; A.I.F. authorities recognized the importance of provid inggood treatment for soldiers 09 the road home, and have-therefore-com missioned the Australian Y.M.C.A. to carry out an Extensive troopship ser vice, the aim ofwhich will be the eri- ; tertainment and comfort of the re mitting soldiers; An instance of tb« effect of Y.M.C.A. work on troop ships was given on the "Orsova," which reached Australia not long ago carrying 1,600 fighting men and sail ors.

' Memories' Written especially for He Feter» Cfcriw lme#" by CHAPTER XXI On June 38, 1900 Australian troops landed on .the .beach, and received a warm welcome. Among them were a few reinforcements, but the ma jority _ of them were wounded men returning once more for duty. For a long time Capt. Trenchard, O.C. of the two 6-in. howitzers (or, as they were popularly termed, the "Howare yers"), had been waiting for fuses for his stock of lyddite shells, and on the 12th day they arrived, and the captain exhibited his first smile for quite a considerable time. He was quickly at headquarters for permis sion -to use his guns on the enemy's trenches, particularly at ''Quinn's' Post" (out weakest point), and he guaranteed that after he had inter viewed them for two hours with lyd dite that an advance could be made with practically no losses. The limit ed use of our force seemed to imply that we were not meant to advance; but ears cocked waiting for those guns to begin that two hours' parley, ...

With this Alexis was obliged to foe content; but be made up bis mind that no obstacles should prevent him from reaching the far-distant town where Helen Armfeldt was -waiting and longing for his coming- As yet he had no clear idea what he would do ii he succeeded. Dawn found the fugitives half a dozen miles from the dreaded mines, and in the midst of a lonely forest. In spite of hunger and intense weari ness, they pushed straight on until sundown. They spent the night, in a thick clump of undergrowth, and by the aid of a covering of pine boughs, they slept well. At daylight they re sumed the journey towards the north west, and during the next few days they travelled rapidly and with scarcely a rest. Not onee did they see a Cossack, or a htmaE creature oj any kind. The search was no doubt being carried on in other directions. Nothing worthy of note occurred dur...

PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919

PROPORTIONAL REPRESEN TATION. Sir,-Those of us who for many years have studied electoral and poli tical conditions have viewed with in creasing alarm the tendency of rep resentation, and consequently of the making of laws, to become vested in the two extreme sections of political thought, and have become more and more convinced that the only way to strike off the shackles of Conserva tive reaction on the one hand, and of Labour extremism on the other, is to change our methods of representa tion. There are large sections in both the Liberal Union and tiie Lab our Party who are whole-hearted be lievers in the reform, and who see in it nothing but that which is good for the whole community. Other political parties, such as the Farmers and Set tlers' Association, the National Party, the United Farmers 01 South Austra lia. the Farmers and Producers' Country Party, have placed Propor tional Representation in the fore front of their fighting platforms.

NORTHERN TRAIN AND MAIL ARRANGEMENTS. [From "The Orroroo Enterprise."} As is usual in vany big industrial trouble, the far back towns are again called upon to suffer niany inconve niences in the matter of . trains and mails in consequence of the present upheaval. While sympathizing with those charged with responsibility of railway management during sucli times, we fail to agree with the policy that imagines its duty to the public ends with curtailing of the passenger service, without any attempt to make provision for a passenger carriage to be attached to or mails' be carried by one of tlie many goods, trains that now run on the days that the ordin ary mixed trains are cut out* With a v.ieu- to making such ar rangements with the (department con cerned, a few townsmen met on Tuesday, arid after discussing the mat ter wired to Messrs.

PEKINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919

PEKINA. During the past week a steady rain has fallen over this district, about an incli being registered. We were very badly in need of rain, and the fall, though light, will keep feed and wheat going tor a while, when we hope to be favoured again--next time with an even greater fall. Fallowing will be the order of the day now among the farmers. After such a glorious win against Yarrowie on June 14. it was with con fidence that the local lads took the field last Saturday against Tarcowie, on the local grounds. The Pekina team showed superior football to the opponents right from the start, and when the bell went for time the final scores were: Pekina, 9 goals 14 be hinds; Tarcowie. 1 goal. .

A MAN AND HIS MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919

A HAH AMD NIS MANNERS. A man who has been very success ful in life, and raised himself from humble circumstances to wealth and eminence, lately told the romantic story of his "start" on the rotd to fortune. " He was assistant in a glove shop, and sedulously cultivat ed the habit of remembering the si/t's in band wear taken by regular customers, in order that he might bring each lady her right number without the usual "What siz?, ma dam ?" An old dame was so charmed with this subtle flattery, perhaps believing it to he particular rather than gen eral, that she left him £50 in her will, with which be was able to start in business for himself, no doubt con truing his diplomatic methods in a wider sphere. Though tact and a good memory are not always so richly rewarded, tlu-y are admittedly valuable attri butes in making one's way. 'j o be remembered is the attention most appreciated by a man or wo in.-iii, and one has heard of sundry distinguished personages who. before goin.^ to a func...

CARRIETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919

CARRIETON. Great consternation was caused amongst the inhabitants of this town one day last week, when a huge piece of machinery was seen approaching Carrieton. Speculation was rife as to whether it was one of our brave k«is returning with a captured German field piece of artillery, or whether it was the German sympathizers bring ing their gun within range to wipe Carrieton from existence. All the re serves were called out in defence, and were prepared for the worst. As the huge piece of machinery approached it could be seen by our spies and ad vance guard that if it were Germans, then their guns were not fully man ned. Under a truce flag a messenger went forward, only to find that the field piece was under the charge of Capt. D. McColive and Lieut. T. King, and that they intended not to wage war on Carrieton, but to ende-i vour to level over the roads for the Council, with their up-to-date road grader. They were not long either before they treated us to a demonstra tion of its cons...
