BULLET "CAUGHT" IN THE SKIES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

BULLET "CAUGHT" IN THE SKIES. A French aviator is reported to have brought down from the skies a German rifle bullet which he had caught ill his haud! The story goes that he was fly ing at a height of about 7000 feet when he suddenly became aware of a small black object close to his head. He thought it was an insect of some kind, and was sufficient of an entomologist to realise that a flying insect at such a high altitude was a curiosity. So he stretched out his hand and grasped what to his amazement proved to be a bullet. He explained afterwards that it was evidently a rifle bullet that had been fired almost, vertically, and had reach ed its utmost elevation. He arrived on his aeroplane just at the moment when the bullet turned slowly over and .jvas about to fall again!

[?]OW GERMANY PREPARED. FRENCH BRANCH OF KRUPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

<0W GERMANY PREPARED. FRENCH BRANCH OF KRUPPS. France, like England and Belgium, lias been a field for suspicious Germau undertakings, evidently begun with a view some day of facilitating opera tions in war time. One of these enter prises has just come to light through an official decree, which declares the Thyssen contracts for coal and ore at Caen to have lapsed, and closes the mines and smelting furnaces, of Diel ette. This is one of the most aston ishing enterprises, as it was not only a preparation for future gun emplace ments, but the guns, or parts of them, had actually been shipped to Frar.ce. A certain number of Germans, direet lv or indirectly, founded iron works near Caen, which they called "La So ciete des Hauts Fourneaux de Caen," with a capital of 30,000,000 francs, Krupps, it seems, was to have a branch establishment in the heart of France. Herr Thyssen, who had already obtain ed mining privileges in the rich iron ore fields of Perrieres and Soumont, in the...

NOTHING SACRED TO GERMANS. RED CROSS CHATEAU ATTACKED. WOUNDED FRENCH SOLDIERS. KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

NOTHING SACRED TO GERMANS. BED CROSS CHATEAU ATTACKED. WOUNDED FRENCH SOLDIERS. KILLED. (Special Correspondent of London "Daily CHronicle.") 1 Lave just been furnished with what is undoubtedly one of the most formid able indictments yet drawn up against the conduct of the German troops in tho field. It has been provided by Mr. John M. Ghretian, an attorney-at;law of Kan Francisco, who, a few days ago, in company with a friend, Mr. Donald Ferguson, mado a trip into the heart of the Vosges to see for themselves to what extent the stories of German bar barities were true. '' We first saw,'' Mr. Ghretian tells me, "Madame Edmond Deflin, of the beautiful Villa de St. Martin. She told us that on August 30th a detachment of German soldiers forced open the iron gates leading into her garden, and, be fore she could open it, broke down the front door with the butts of their rifles.

GERMAN UNDESIRABLES. HOW THEY SURRENDERED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

GERMAN UNDESIRABLES. HOW THEY SURRENDERED. i Among recent prisoners made by the French troops is Captain voii Radowitz, son of the aforetime German Ambas sador at Madrid. Thero was nothing very heroic - rather the opposite about the circumstances of his surren der. Ilis squadron having during a reconnaissance approached rather too i closely for comfort to the French lines j was severely cut up, and Oaptain von Radowitz, with his surviving soldiers, I took refuge in a wood, where they hid | for forty-eight hours without food or j drink. A brigadier of the French Cuir- | assiers with a couple of men was fol lowing the fringe of this wood when to his surprise appeared a captain, two lieutenants, and ten men, holding up their hands in sign of surrender. Both officers and men were mounted. The brigadier, who like most French sol diers, had reason to fear the Boehes, even when holding up their hands, call ed out to them to fling down their wea pons. This they did with eager expe dition. B...

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIR WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE or THEIR WORK. Convincing testimony to the useful ness of the dog has been supplied by the campaign in Belgium, our brave Allies, employing large numbers for pulling machine guns and accompany ing sentries on nocturnal duties. Curi ously enough, this form of traction has only been adopted within the last year or' two, and only fifteen months ago a Belgian Service paper wrote approv ingly of the experiment, pointing out that, in addition to being docile and competent, the animals had become great favourites among the soldiers. Among their advantages it was men tioned that they move silently, with out apparent effort, over the roughest country, and that they are practically invisible "a few hundred yards away. With striking prescience, the writer ob served that the military Great Danes would be called upon to play a particu larly effective and glorious part, little j realising probably how soon his words would become true. According to cor- J respondents, the...

ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. Mrs. Henry Glows, the wife of the. well-known American banker, returned lately to New York. She told the ship-news reporters that the stories of German atrocities in Belgium had not been exaggerated, and she herself had personally investigated a number, with the result that she found that half had not been told. It was a war, she said, ruthless beyond description, and the' Germans, so far from trying to conceal their malpractices, openly defended them on the ground that the life of a Prussian soldier in the jjresent crisis was worth nioro than that of any civilian, no matter what age or sex. Mrs. Clews said there is a chance of people misunderstanding the alleged friendliness to Americans shown by the Germans. She said that she and others were openly insulted in the streets of Munich many a time. "It is not because the Germans love us so that they foregather at the railway stations and cry 'Hoch! Iloch!' when a trainload of American refugees passes ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST I (By "Riieticus.") ' The declaration of tlio head of the Victorian Government that the. Min istry lias developed "a water consci ence," is interesting.

WHAT THE ENGLISH CENSOR PASSED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

WHAT THE ENGLISH CENSOR PASSED. The '' Vorwarts,'' quotes a private letter received from a fireman of the Mai.uz, who was wounded in the naval battle near Heligoland, and is HOW a prisoner of war at Chatham. The letter is brief and bears the stamp of censor ship of the Assistant Provost Marshal of Thames and Medway Defences: it savs, among other things: "The reception and the treatment here is very good. The most vivid im agination is child's play in comparison with what we experienced on August 2-St.h. My address: Prisoner of War (follow details). Hail and victory to the German arms! Yours ." The "Vorwarts" observes:- "The letter happily shows that tho prisoners of war in 'English hands suffer no want. . . . The most remarkable thing, how ever, is that tho English censor has passed the words, 'TTail and victory to the German arms.' The broadminded ness reflects all honour on the British authorities, and is calculated to streng then our confidence that, on the whole, tho prisoners i...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

I FOE WOMEN I (.By "Ambrosm'e.") Blouse wear was never quite so beau tiful. Even the simplest styles are a bit of a revelation. One such developed in batiste or silk has a shield-like yoke u-ith arched front divided by plain graduated collar. The arch is studded with buttons, and the shield lies flat. The rest of the blouse is gathered to this, falling loosely, and the long sleeve has a cuff with a half turn, and three buttons. Another plain blouse is of crepe or lawn. It has a front just that of man's dress sliirt with "V" neck and rolling collar. The rest of the blouse is baggy, under sleeve line from waist, and the front is outlined with a seam, and stitched to conform at closing, six buttons. A short shirt cuff, has two buttons. Blouses, front view, simulate the lines of the letter "X" or -'V" or ''"A" (bar omitted) with the sides bending out. This last is the most fashionable fancy, being express ed with bands both narrow and broad, and sometimes so very broad as to compass the...

WARSHIP'S 1,000 SHELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

WARSHIP'S 1,000 SHELLS. A graphic description of the Trafal gar Day bombardment of the German position at Nieuport by the allied fleets was given to Renter's special corres pondent at Dover. The vessels were in continuous action for twelve hours, firing opening at six in the morning', when the squadron was some two miles off the shore. The enemy's trenches were three miles inland, and the firing was inces sant; one British vessel alone fired a thousand lyddite and shrapnel shells. The firing was so rapid that some of the guns discharged fourteen projec tiles a minute. So terrible was the re sult of the squadron's fire that at the end of the day the whole coast for a distance of four miles from Nieuport to Westende, which at the beginning of the action was strongly held by the enemy, has been completely evacuated and was a dense mass of black smoke and flame.
