HER SOLDIER. How a Women Found a Way to Serve Her Country. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915

HER SOLDIER. How a Women Found a Way to Serve Her Country. "If I were only a man!" Kate Barclay's eyes flashed with, a splendid resolve, a fine blaze of cour age. "If you were, would you not do just the same as now—sit still and wish something else?" "Why do you judge me so unkind ly, Frank?" The lips began to pout now, a little temper to blend with the courage in the fine eyes. "Because you do not do what you can, even now. If you were not my cousiii, I suppose I should not speak to you so plainly. As it is, it vexes me when I hear you wishing, morning, noon, and night, to be and do the im possible; and yet never trying to do what is ready to your hand. Do you think there is no better use for the money you are wasting so carelessly in silks and laces? How much was Madame Ferarra's bill last quarter?" "Money won't fight, and Govern ment pays the soldiers—better, I heard you say so yesterday, than any army in Europe." "Yet, by giving a little more than Government gives, I think you c...

"Here Lie Five White Men." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915

"Here Lie Five White Men." I'll the valley of the Aisne there is a grave that bears this inscription:— "Here Lie Five White Men." They belonged to the East Lancashire Re giment, and -were out on scouting duty one night when they lost their way in a fog. They were conscious of the enemy moving all around, and their one hope lay in making a row that would warn their countrymen. They fought like men, but they never had a chance, and the whole five went down. Only one was alive, and he was badly wounded. It was from him that we heard the story when we came there, attracted by the firings rie only lived for a few hours, and as he passed away he had only one mes sage: "I am glad we didn't surren der."

GERMAN GOODS COMING IN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915

GERMAN GOODS COMING IN.i f "Have all the German stocks 'run out in your trade yet?" was the ques tion .put by a newspaper reporter to a prominent city merchant. "They ran out to a certain extent," he replied, "but I find that there is a leakage somewhere, and German made bags are still coming in. "What ever source they come through I do not know, but I know they are coming, . ami enquiries snuuia be mane, flere I is a sample of German-made lady's' handbag, which could not be bought j in November or December anywhere ' in Australia.

It 13 most refreshing to find a maga zine nowadays that1' 19 not War from cover to cover. Such a magazine is 44 Everylady's Journal " for February.

Murphy's Vow. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915

Murphy's Vow. j "I'll find that sniper and, get my own back," vowed Private Murphy, of the South Staffords, in broad Irish, J after the sniper had wounded him in the arm. And it was that vow which led Murphy to perform a particularly gallant deed. With a number of his I comrades he was on outpost duty, and they were being continually pick ed off by the sniper. Two nights later Murphy was - missing from his post, but the sniping had stopped. Later on, search being made for him, he was found lying at the foot of a big tree, close behind the body of the sniper, who was pinned to the ground with Murphy's bayonet. Mur phy told the officer that when he lo cated "the blighter" he was high up in the tree. Getting underneath, he threatened to shoot, when the Ger man dropped his rifle and scrambled down. "Then I gave him a good past ing witt my fists, and finished off by pinning him down."

Coldstreamer Hero. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915

Coldstreamer Hero. "I only took my chance and did my duty to save my comrades." ? It is thus that Private P. W. Dodson, of the 2nd Coldstream Guards, modestly describes the act for which he has been recommended for the V.C. A thick fog had enveloped his regi ment, and Captain Follett sent three men 100 yards in advance, to warn him of an attack from the enemy. After they had been there an hour, the fog suddenly lifted, and the three men were fired on at close range by the Germans. One man was killed, pns wounded badly, one crawled back. "I didn't know how to get the wounded man back," says Captain Follett, "so I had to call for a volunteer, and a reservist, Dodson, at once responded and went out and fetched him, amid a hail of bullets."

One maiitef. that was brought up at the Berringa meeting was whether a monster picnic of the whole of the schools in the Asso ciation should be held in a central place, or whether it should be an excursion to either Ballarat, Geelong, or Colac. This was not decided, and a letter from the District; Association secretary . was sent to the head-teacher, asking him to call a meeting of the parents to test the feeling as to whether it should be a pic nic or an excursion. Some indignation was expressed at the action of the Dis trict Association secretary in writing to the head teacher, and not the committee, to ascertain the feeling of the parents on tbe matter. However, the meeting of tbe parents was called, but was rather poorly attended. After a lengthy dis ca...

EDUCATING PARLIAMENTARIANS. I [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915

EDUCATING PARLIAMENTARIANS, I By D.B.W. That Mr. Mead is a persistent man is well known to Ministers of the Crown, and to this quality of persist ence is attributable the fact that he was able to introduce no fewer than five members of the Government to the irrigation districts in the Goul burn Valley last week'; and also to induce them to visit the scene of the proposed great water storage in the valley of the Upper Goulburn. His own Minister', Mr. Hutchinson, was long ago persuaded of the necessity for a supplementary scheme of water supply from the Goulburn, while in the benefits of irrigation culture he has long been a thoroughly believer. Through him Mr. Mead was able to induce the Premier- (Sir Alexander Peacock), the Minister of Education (Mr. T. Livingston), the Minister of Lands (Mr. H. Lawson), and the Hon. Minister (Mr. John Gray) to make a hurried visit to the Upper and Lower Goulburn districts last week, in com pany with the Minister of Water Sup ply and Agriculture (Mr...

The Fusilier rushed off to the rescue, and just-got there as the second German, was about to run his- lance through the Lancashire lad. It was too late to do any thing but one, and that "the new arrival did like a man. He flung himself between his chum and the German, receiving the lance-thrust through his breast.
