'Memories' CHAPTER XXII. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919

'Memories' Written especially for "The Peter» burg Times" by S.-Majsr B. A. Clarke. CHAPTER XXII. On June 20 a Turkish battery posted west of Olive Grove opened tire on our hospital ship, anchored in the bay. Several shots were parti cularjy close, but to us on shore the gunnery looked wild, and I- think no damage was done. The event caused a good deal of recrimination against the Turk, but it" seemed toVm'e that our naval heads were hardly playing the game. Destroyers, trawlers, and transports come in and drop anchor quite close to the floating hospital, End it ina3r appear to Mr. Turk that we were protecting our shipping t>y anchoring in the vicinity of the"Red Cross boat. If so, then we cannot altogether lay the blame on our enemies. It was significant that shortly after a larger gap existed be tween the hospital ship and the re mainder of,the shipping. On the 21st Aclii Baba came in for rough treat ment from, the Xavv. During the day j«,000 shells were pumped in by the Fleet,...

RACING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919

RACING NOTES. The annual meeting of the Quorn Jockey Club was by no means as suc cessful as last year's, which stands as a record for the club. Touching on finance, the gate re ceipts were £33 less than last year, whilst the club's totalizator commis sion showed 3«"deficien£y of £60. The attendance was about 250 short of last year's record. All this de ficiency -we claim to be due to the coal shortage, as there were no spe cials from Peterborough or Hawker, as in previous years, and it was Only through the .united efforts of the' Quorn and Port Augusta Clubs that the special from the Port ran, and then only that' the Conjmomvealth Commissioner gave a- grant of coal. ' The totalizator's working was very good, and great praise is due to Mr. F. W.. White, who had charge. The racing was all that could be de sired, and some very fast times were recorded. The total investments for the day was £1,550. The course presented a very nice appearance, arid the railings were all whitewashed. ? , ...

QUORN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919

QUORN RACES. The Quorn Jockey Club held their very successful annual meeting on Sa turday last in the presence of a very fair attendance. The . weather, al though a little on the chilly side at times, was all that could be desired. The racing was very keen, and some fine finishes were seen, especially in the Trial Stakes, when Rituabel and Blafil fought, for victory every inch of the ground. Some very fast times were recorded. Great praise is due to the energetic secretary (Mr. W. R. Thompson), and all arrangements of the afternoon went off without a hitch. A mistake occurred in the programme, which showed Ethel M. to be an ac ceptor in the Handicap. This was not the case, as. Red Trent should have appeared as an acceptor.: The Stipendiary steward (Mr. M. J.

SOLDIERS SUPPORT RED TRIANGLE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919

SOLDIERS SUPPORT RED TRIANGLE WORK. Both in Western Australia and South Australia the State branches of the Returned Sailors and Soldiefs' Imperial League have recently de clared very definitely in favour of the Australian Y.M.C.A.'s war service with the A.I.F. This is all the more important in view of the fact that the association's recreational, educational, hospitality and troopship service is to be intensified during demobilization. The organizer of the Anzac Memorial Day in Perth wrote to the Perth Y.M.C.A. a few weeks ago declaring that "Your association in the past has been of immense benefit to the sol diers prior to their departure from the State, during their period of actual service in the field, and upon their return to the State."

Y.M.C.A. WAR SERVICE. SOME CURRENT MISUNDERSTANDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919

Y.M.C.A. WAR SERVICE. SOME CURRENT MISUNDER STANDINGS. * Uninformed criticism of the Aus tralian Y.M.C.A. war work with the A.I.F. rests chiefly upon the associa tion's canteen administration. Critics are not generally aware that the Aus tralian Y.M.C.A. never had the powor to fix its own prices in these canteens; that function being jealously controll ed by the Army Canteen Board. The association assumed the conduct of 4 the canteens on the insistent request of the A.I.F. command. It, however, stipulated that the gross profits on a canteen sales should come back to the toldiers in the form of free dis tribution of food, drinks, and smokes in the front line areas. Ever Since the Y.M.C.A. took over its first Army canteen, that has been its policy. With a quaintly diminished memory, some objectors to Red Triangle appeals say they got "nothing for nothing from the Y.M.C.A." The following . figures should rebut any such allega tions: Audited statements covering the period from April, l'...

RETALIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 11 July 1919

RETALIATION'. An^ inspector, who weighed over sixteen stone, boarded a tramcar, and began to examine the passen gers' tickets. He came to one list less individual, who was apparently too drowsy to search for hid ticket, and, in fact, made no attempt to do BO. The stout inspector became im patient, and after attending to the rest of the passengers, came back to the sleepy one, and said, authorita tively : "Now, you'll have to do one of three things-show your ticket, pay your tare, or get oft." By this time the man produced his ticket, and as the inspector was leaving the car, he called out : "I say, guv'nor, you'll also have to do one of three things." "Oh, what are they f" demanded the inspector, angrily. "Walk more, eat less-or burst," was the reply.

SPIRIT-WRITING. ONE WAY THAT IT'S DONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 11 July 1919

SPIRIT-WRITING. ONE WAY THAT IT'S DONE. Trick after trick of the spirit messagerwriters is ruthlessly exposed by Mr. William Marriott in his latest tilt at spiritualism, published in "Pearson's Magazine." Once, for example, Mr; Marriott encountered a medium, who perform ed what certainly seemed a marvel. An ordinary, slate . was put on a table with pieces of chalk of various colours. Mr. Marriott was asked to put a question,-- and to say in which colour he would like the an swer to be written. He did so and then and there before his eyes the chosen piece of chalk uprose, as it were, and scrawled an answer to the question, for all the world aB if moved by spirit force. , Mr. Marriott slipped one of the pieces of chalk, into his pocket, and, at home, analysed it. He found the chalk mixed with iron filings. And there was the secret of the spirit force. The slate was an ordinary one-but the table was something special-it Bad a, very thin top, and beneath the top was a very powerful magn...

NEW ELECTRICAL METHODS IN MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 11 July 1919

NEW ELECTRICAL METHODS IN MEDICINE. Electricity, as is well known, plays a large part in the treatment of disease, but its usefulness in diagnos ing faults and breakdowns in the human machine is less familiar, except in the case of X-rays for the detection of fractures "and foreign todies. Seve ral ingenious electrical instruments have been invented and manufactured in Great Britain for giving accurate records of the heart's acton and of the temperature of the body. When a current of electricity is pass ed through the hody between the ex tremities of the limbs, the contraction of the heart alters the strength of the current; by an ingenious arrangement this alteration is made to record it self on a photographic plate. A "car diogram" is thus secured, whch gives a diagrammatic account of the heart's action, and enables the physician to detect conditions which might escape other means of detection. In taking temperatures, the usual method is to insert a thermometer at intervals, and t...

BRITISH AUTOMATIC TELEPHONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 11 July 1919

BRITISH AUTOMATIC TELEPHONES. Great Britain has shown conspicu ous activity in developing the automa tic telephone exchange; and the an nouncement that a sum of £7j000,000 is to ]pe spent on converting the tele phone system of London from "man ual" to automatic working is proof that the enterprising trials at Leeds' and other English towns' have been successful. In the automatic tele phone the instrument is provided with a rotating dial having numbered de pressions near its circumference. To effect a "call" the user places a finger in a certain depression and pulls the dial round to a mechanical stop; this operation is .repeated for each figure in the telephone number required. Thereafter the mechanism-at the ex-r change does all the work; it "selects" the line requifed, rings the bell of the called subscriber arid continue^ ring ing it until the receiver is lifted; "holds"' the line clear until the'con versation is finshed and both receiv ers hung up; and then disconnects-the line....

WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 11 July 1919

WISE ANO OTHERWISE. 4. It's the easiet thing in the world to make a bad matter worse. The more conceit a woman has the less room she has for jealousy. Naturally enough, the widow doesn't feel her loss so keenly if it is ful'y covered by insurance. '"Brainful" and "dashfulnesa" are the two chief journalistic products of tlie cricket season up till now. The chap who is regarded as one man in a thousand is cordially hated by the other nine hundred and ninety nine. "Farmers cheered by the Rain," says a head-line. No cme would have thought that the rain was capable of such enthusiasm. "One-half of the world does not know how the other half livqs." "Well, it is gratifying to think that one-half of the world attends to its own business." The biggest fish and the best hus bands are hard to catch.

WHY THEY ABE POOR. (Orison Swett Warden, in Success!. t -s. Their ideas are larger than their purses. They think the world owes them a. living. They do not keep account of their expenditures. They are easy dupes of schemers and promoters. They reverse the maxim-"Duty before pleasure." They have too many and too ex pensive amusements. They do not think it worth while, to save their pennies. They have risked a competence in trying to get rich quickly. They allow friends to impose upon their good nature and generosity. They try to do what others expect of them, not what they can aflord. The parents are economical, but the children have expensive ideas. They do not do to-day what they can possibly put off until to-mor row. They do not -think it .worth while to put contracts or agreements into writing. They prefer to incur debt rather than to do work which they consider beneath them. They do not dream that little mortgages on their homes can ever turn them out of doors. They have endorse...
