A TRIBUTE TO AUSTRALIAN HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 15 June 1917

A TRIBUTE TO AUSTRALIAN HEROES. Brave heroes from Australia Came to defend our land ; They faced the mines when on the sea ; Came to lend a willing hand. Some from the east, some from the west, Some from the fields of toil. Of all the fighting men, the best Came from Australian soil. Australians from their native land (They left it far behind) Drove back the Huns, fought hand to hand — That's where Australia shines. They left Australia, the land of peace ; They got a splendid name. When war is o'er with shouts of peace Return back home again. Australia ! Australia ! That land of heroes brave. But many from that golden land Have found an early grave. These noble sons, some of the best, Are sleeping 'neath the sod. We left those Heroes there to lay Alone — alone with God. A long, long rest those heroes lay, Safe from the firing line. Sleep on, ye brave ones till that day, Until the end of time. No cannon can disturb their rest, No bullet wound be given ; No bayonet charge can pierce t...

THE GALLANT BOMBARDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 15 June 1917

THE GALLANT BOMBARDIERS. We're a dandy lot of soldiers, We're the gallant bombardiers, And we're bold or even bolder When we're full of stuff that cheers. So we go and bomb the baker, When we're sure he is in bed; And his wife, the devil take her, We would like to see her dead. Then we go to Freddy Ginter, And we give his house a boost; After that to Hansy Binzy For to scare him off his roost. We would like to bomb old Noxy And dislodge him from his nest, But you see we really daren't, 'Twould disturb the trooper's rest. With our bellies full of bug juice, And our pockets full of stones, We are braver than the bravest, Yet we're careful of our bones. So we don't go near the cockies, Though we're certain they are Huns; For the cattle dog might bite us, And perhaps they've got some guns. We will not go to the trenches For to fight a blooming Hun; If we did the brute might chase us With a bay'net on his gun. When we go to church on Sunday, We do pray upon our knees That we'll not be se...

NOTES BY THE WAYSIDE. "What chances I see when I havn't got a gun." [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 15 June 1917

NOTES BY THE WAYSIDE. By "Unohoo.") "What chances I see when I havn't got a gun." The mice plague has become a seri- ous menace to the interests of the farmer, and unless a determined on- slaught is at once made in this State, the consequences will mean the loss of millions sterling. The people have suddenly become alive to this fact, but whilst they have been sleeping the increase of mice has been uninterrupted. What was somebody's business was nobody's trouble. The same disposition is in evidence with respect to obnoxious weeds. Had they been eradicated years ago, every property owner doing his share, there would have been no trouble. Retrogression is a common enemy, and lethargy is another. The old jog-trot excuse, with many, is that they have quite enough to bother about otherwise. Now, regarding mice, I have made a calculation what the progeny of a single pair of mice would amount to in two years, and it reaches over four millions ; this is a low esti- mate, and four millions l...
