AUSTRALIAN CATHOLIC FEDERATION. (To the Editor.) Sir,—In your supplement of July 27 a statement appeared to the ef fect that Uelgian priests had advised women to commit Infanticide tinder certain circumstances. The article was brought under the notice of the State council of the Australian Cath olic Federation, and I was directed to write elating that such advice would bo totally contrary to Catho lic teaching.

A report had appeared in the papers that a Rclgian priest had advised women about to become mothers not to bear the responsibili ties of motherhood. He had endea vored to ilnd out more about the re port. but it was bo vague that ho could discover nothing further. He did not believe that any pri...

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, July 3, 1915. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, July 3, 1915. London is settling down in a new spirit and in a new temper to the war. The mouths of extravagant hopes, of complacency, of easy assurance ot vic tory are over. We know that we are going to win, but wo know, too, that the cost of our victory will be some thing greater than we dared to think at the beginning. We liavo discovered that this war is only going to be won by a strong concentration of all our forces, nil our money, and all our energy. This is the meaning of the various measures that have been dis cussed during the past few days—the National Registration Bill, the great stocktaking of our people, which is to show what our strength is and how it ^ can best be used; the popularisation of the. War Loan; and the Munitions , Campaign. It is strange how to-day j we are repeating the experiences of past ages—the first months of costly mistakes, the slow realisation of our blunders, and then the gathering up of our forces for a s...

KORONG VALE NEWS A Prolific Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

KORONG VALE NEWS A Prolific Crop. Cr. R. Andrews, of Borung, at the present time has a crop showing remarkable growth for this period of the year, a growth that has not been surpassed in these districts for some years. The paddock was sown for hay, first with wheat, Bunyip variety, and then cross drilled with Algerian oats, thus receiving double manure as well as double seed. Although sown at the same time the wheat is somewhat in advance of the oats, a considerable portion of which is clean out in ear, at from three to four feet in height and in flower, the oats though well up among the wheat is not yet showing a shot blade. In density this crop equals anything grown in past years in the Newlyn and Dean districts, places that are renowned throughout the State for the weight of hay returned per acre. In suc- culence, the wheat plant is extra ordinary, having a flag leaf of an inch and over in breadth! Given an average spring this crop will be cut and marketable before the end of Oct...
