THE KASSER AND THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

THE KASSER AND THE NAVY. The Kaiser's allusions to Trafalgar make strange reading to-day. On Octo ber 30th, 25 years ago, he inspected as a British Admiral the British ships at the Piraeus, and, in responding to the toast of his health on board the Hag ship, said, "Nelson's famous signal is no longer necessary. You all do your duty, and we, as a young naval station, go to England to learn something from the British Navy.'' On January 22nd, 189;-!, at a luncheon in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh in Berlin, the Kai ser, having referred to Nelson and other British naval heroes, as '"'the guiding stars of German naval ofiicers and crews," added "And should it ever happen that the British and Ger man navies have to light side by side against a common foe, then the famous signal, 'England expects that every man will do his duty,' which England man will do his duty," which Eng land's greatest naval hero gave out before the Battle of Trafalgar, will find an echo in the patriotic heart of t...

"ROLL ON, ENGLAND." In a letter of thanks to friends for articles of clothing, cigarettes, ets., re ceived by him, a"rifleman of the "B" Company of the First King's Royal Rifles, at the front, speaks of the in tense cold in the trenches at night. He writes: "We linve the consolation of knowing that the Germans have to rough it, too, and perhaps they are worse off than we are, for it is reported, that fever has brboken out in their ranks. I think that the average German has not much heart for the light. The other day we took 400. prisoners. Most of them were silent enough, but one of them to our amazement, greeted us in English with the words, 'Roll on, England!'

THE TABLES TURNED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

THE TABLES TURNED- 'j A day or two ago (writes a Paris' correspondent), a section of a French infantry regiment which had been sent out to reconnoitre lost its way in the thick fog, and came plump upon a com pany of the enemy, which took it pris oner. The German company, \finding its movements hampered by the ever thickening fog, formed a hollow square, in the centre of which it placed the disarmed Frenchmen. The Germans then stacked rifles and waited for the fog to lift. They, beguiled the tedium of the waiting by insulting their pris oners. This was too much for the chart ered wag of the French regiment, who wag a Parisian of jMontemarte, and as sharp as they are made. Ho saw his opportunity. "Get their rifles, boys," he shouted. And with a concerted rush the prisoners broke the square and seiz ed the stacked rifles. The German cap tain and a dozen of his men who tried to resist fell before their own bayonets and the whole company surrendered to its prisoners of five minutes ago. ...

The letter is dated September 20th: "At the time of the battle of the Manic I was at Yoisins (near Coulom miers), and from September 1st we saw thousands of English troops passing through the town. But on the 5th, 6th, and 7th there was the horrible sight of Germans coming from the di rection of Meaux. Nearly all the peo ple left hurriedly, except about thirty of us. My sister Gabrielle, coming from Paris, had to stop at Marbs, and had to walk here.

It will fee remembered that last year the tyoolmai Shire President convened a meeting at palyston, of all interested jri this question, and after discussion it was agreed upon the motion of Mr Geo. Hollins to refuse to pay this iniquitous fax. The mover was very emphatic in speaking to his resolution and stated that he for one intended to fight the Government. It is therefore with freat surprise that we n<3w learn that e, amongst others, has long since paid this tax. Whar has the secretary of the Anti-loading railway league done in the matter?

HUMANE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

HUMANE GERMANS. A private of the Black Watch, now in hospital in Newcastle, says: Ou the Aisuc I was lying for hours wounded. A German came along and bound lip my wound under heavy fire. When he had made me shipshape he was going to clear off, but a stray bul let caught him, and he fell dead beside me. After Sossons (savs Corporal Hous ton, of the Seaforths), I was lying on the field badly wounded. Near by was I a young fellow of the Northampton shire Regiment. Standing over him was a German infantryman holding a water bottle to his Hps and trying to soothe liim. The wounded man was delirious, and kept calling, "Mother, are you there?" all the time. The Gorman seemed to understand, for he passed his hand gently over the feverish brow j and caressed the poor lad as tenderly as any woman might have done. Death j I'ame at last, and as the soul of the ! wounded man passed to its last acocunt ! I saw the German trying to hide liis j tears.

CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

CLEARING BRACKEN. How to get rid of bracken fern is a question that a correspondent in nn Australian paper replies to by saying: "Cutting the bracken is of 'little use. Cutting seems to be pruning them to promote their growth. The same with burning. The more they are burnt, the quicker and thicker they grow. We find that bruising is the effective system with, a hard roller made by the local blacksmith, encircled spirally with angle iron. Tlio process is simply to keep passing this roller, loaded to sufficient weight, over tho brackens, as often as they show new growth, and eventually this kills them right out." ''Not cuttiDg them in the height of spring, and only once in the year," another correspondent writes "may be uslessj but cut them 20 times a year if they need cutting that often; in fact out them as often as you can get a hit at them, with the fern hook, so that the sun can shine fair on the grass to sweeten it, and the cattle will help to keep them down by treading them down...

TIME TO CUT GREEN MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915

TIME TO CUT GREEN MAIZE. This is a ijuestion that often crops up-when to cut maize for greatest feeding value. Prof. J. H. Sheppard, Dean of Agri culture, North Dakota Agricultural College, says that the amount of dry matter- iii a maize iield increases at al ji'ost a regular rate from the time of tasseling until fully ripe. In round j numbers it is as follows:-When in ?} silk it has twice as much dry matter ,J as when in tassel, when iu milk three ' when glazed four times, and v.'ben ripe live times as much as when in tassel. The digestible matter also i ;h-reuses as the maize matures, so thai the increase in dry matter is even less tlu'ii the increase in digestible mattef per acre. With these facts in mind one cannot be left iu doubt as to the importance of allowing maize to come ai near ripe as possible before it is cut for fodder. It should not be left, however, after it is ripe for the leaves to be broken off by the wind and tlie digestible matter bleached out by rain a>nl d...
