THE GALLANT THREE HUNDRED. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 February 1914

THE GALLANT THREE HUN DRED. Any schoolboy can tell you how the "Noble Six Hundred" rushed into the "Valley of Death at Bala clava' '"-the maddest and Inost splendid feat in the annals of war -but how many to-day know the story of the charge of the gallant three hundred, who, a few hours earlier, flung, themselves at the Russian hordes with a valour equally great and glorious ? The curtain rises on this thrill ing episode in the Crimean War. on the grc.-, chilly dawn of October 25, 1851. Sehlom have British sohliers faced such fearful odds. On the heights above them, a dense; menacing mass, were. three thousand of Russia's finest horsemen, omit numbering them by ten to one, and with all'the advantage of position; but even at this point, with the .apparently hopeless task before • them, every man in the British line was convulsed with laughter as, :::down the hill, in panic flight, raced hundreds of red-fezed Turks, pur : sued by the flash of Cossack swords. But there was little time ...

Sir,--During a discussion that took place at the Council table after the reading of a petition signed by 360 householders, describing the flood wat ers, which are unfairly turned into Glenlyon street in riverlike quantity, damaging and depreciating the value of property in the East, one council lor expressed himself desirous to know what benefit, we would derive from borrowing to construct a barrel Jrain, which is calculated to remedy the evil. Suely, sir. a schoolbo-y would know tllat, relief to suffering ratepayers, the safeguarding of life, and general iu provement of our town. is sufficient benefit for any outlay of money in re quired works desired to be car,'ed out by a fair portion of our united ratepayers.

ROBIN HOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 February 1914

ROBIN HOOD. There has never been an outlaw rut.nd whose name such romance has hung as "Iohin llood" of tlhe 'liddle .\gs. Even his existence has been riloulted: but it is now fair ly certain that such a person did exist. and that he g:the:ed round hint a band of "nterry men." These oitlaws halunted t hiarwood Forest, near Nottingham, and the identity of the leader has never been ascertain ed for certain. Some have thought he was the last of tile great Saxons who held out against the Nornmans when these con quered the kingdonm, others that he was the outlawed Earl of Leicester, who led a revolt in the reign of Edward II.; others that he was the leiader of those who were seat tered after the death of Simon de Montfort. It seems certain, however, that he was the '"Ho!-in Tode" -e who was pardoned by King l.dward II.. who gave himn a pension on condition that he gave up his lawless life and remained at Court. But tir ing of this quiet after his previous career, he lhft rhe Court, and su...

*-Pen Pictures of the Past. ~~- 1c---- FLORENCE NIGCll1TINUGALE"S Cl-IOICE. It was oln October 21, 1859, that Florence Nightingale, a quiet and almost unknown young wd man of 'thirty-one, embarlked ,on board the Vectis for the East. Accomplished anld rich, she had devoted her youth to philanthropic work, and when the Government resolved to forinat body of female nurses for the Crimea, she was ofl'ered the post of ,superimten dent.

Motor Traffic Laws. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 February 1914

Motor Traffic Laws. Possibly no suburbs around Mel bourne suffer more acutely from the motor car nuisance, that is the nuis ance when the motor car is improperly driven, than Brunswick and Coburg. Road races from Sydney and from Melbourne are constantly in progress, and there are reliability tests and other exhibitions beautiful to the motor enthusiasts, but often meaning risk of life and limb to the ordinary citizen. Up to the present the law seems strangely to have favored the crinminal whom most people are agreed in denouncing as a "motor hog." Everybody is bound to admit. that the motor car as a means of transport, at any rate for the well-to-do, has come to stay, and against the motor car properly and carefully driven with a due regard to public safety, no one has a word to say. It is no doubt ex hilarating to run along with very lit tle cheek, swerving in and out of crowded tirnffic, and no doubt more :oyable to have a spin along an open country road, but when the driver or ow...
