TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 22 June 1917

TO TITH DItORi OF T?ES ADVFRTIERB. Dear Rir,-Professor Whltburn, a burnt cork celebrity, in a lecture delivered at the Opera House on the Anatomy of the Human Biped, bewailed the fact that man, in this strenuous and progressive age, was almost out of date and severely handicapped through his inability to duplicate and con veniently re-arrange parts of himself. The learned Professor went on to lay that one of his greatest drahwbacks was the lack of hocksight-not foresight-and declared it quite necessary for his own personal safety, when iu the busy city atreets,on the country roads and elsewhere, that ho should be pro vided with eyes at the back of his head, as well as in front, in order that he may see clearly where he is coming from, as well as where he was going to. Adverting to SMr Nankervis'd troubles on the road, with, perhaps, a slow-going steed, as also, possibly, Mr. W. Whitbtrn's when driving lit fast trotters, which Is of no avail to reach the post first with r. motorist a...

NOTES BY THE WVAYSIDE Br " Uioboo.") " What chances I see when I havn't got a gun." "Onlooker," who airs his imaginery grievances in the "Advortisor" of the let inst., in respect to the now bridge over the Plenty River at South Morang, may be a very estimable gentleman, em bellished witi the highest attainments given to man. He may be a social democrat holding extreme socialistic and republican views on local matters. He may be a transmigrator, travelling be twoen the heavenly bodies and the earth below. He may be a puritan, if not, pos sibly his proginatore were, and the blood of his ancestors still runs in his veins. Hto may be a, somnambulist, and dreams strange things. Possiblyhe dreamt that Cra. Wmin. Raid and Leslie Clarke were prejudiced against the building of the now bridge over the Plenty at South Morang. .Probably he may watch that town with a jealous eye. Hfo's got the bridge and a good road to it. Then what has he to growl about? It Is a popular rendezvous for men and m...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 22 June 1917

THE WAR. Still the cruel war goes onward, Goes on from day to day ; Many brave boys are departing For to enter in the fray. There are some who are returning Sick and wounded, blind and lame ; They had heard ard the bugle calling, And they nobly played the game. There are many, yes there's many, Who will not return again, For they're numbered, yes they're numbered, They are numbered mid the slain. Where the icy winds are sighing, In a soldier's grave they lay ; There the brave hearts sleep for ever,   Till the final waking day. We are told of glorious victories ; When they're won who pays the cost? While we're proud of Britain's glory Some poor mother's boy is lost. There are mothers frail and aged, Who are mourning for their boys,   And their hearts are full of sadness Where they'd counted future joys. But the good Lord watches o'er them, And consoles them night and day, And He quells all vengeful feelings — That is His ; He will repay. — KOOKABURRA.

WHITTLESEA BRANCH, RED CROSS SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 22 June 1917

WHITTLESEA BRANCH, RED CROSS SOCIETY. On Thursday evening, 24th May, 1917, a most successful social was held in the Whittlesea Mechanics' Institute, under the management of the members of the Red Cross Society, to raise funds for the gift to the British Red Cross Society and local Society. It was gratifying to see such a splendid gathering of friends from far and near, although the weather was so cold and showery, and all seemed to enter into the evening's pleasure in such a hearty manner. Private C. Hall, whose father, mother and other members of their family, as well as himself, were made welcome guests, was presented by the Chairman with a gold medal, on which was inscribed the following words : " Presented to Private Charles Hall, 1st Pioneer Battalion, A.I.F., by members of Whittlesea Red Cross Society, 24 / 15 /17." Private Hall, in a few well chosen words, very feelingly thanked the members for their kind- ness. Entries for titH waltGing competition were received by AMr Rober...

AUSTRALIANS IN FRANCE. MODERN TRENCH WARFARE. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF BAPAUME AND PERONNE. HELLISH HAVOC OF HINDEN- BURG'S HUNS. "WHY FRITZ LEFT HOME." AWAITING THE END WITH HOPEFUL CONFIDENCE. SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE, APRIL 5, 1917. Long, long before this humble note of mine can possibly reach Australia, newspaper cable messages will have told you of the fall of Bapaume and Peronne and of dozens of other places of lesser note and lesser consequences. [?] the capture of those two massive fortresses, notably of Bapaume, the [?]a of Australia took a large and [?]active part. How large a part and precisely which the units were that [?]operated I am not at present per- mitted to state. As our good fellows have it: "It will all come out in the   wash"; it is bound to be known some day. The high credit is merely de- [?]ed; it is not denied. For the capture of these two notable fortress- towns on the Somme-Ancre Sector [?] the Great Western Front was undoubtedly a distinctly creditabl...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 22 June 1917

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER.   Sir, — In the last issue of your paper I see that "Anti-Humbug" says that I do not give the military authorities much credit for teaching the art of rifle shooting. If "Anti-Humbug" wants any further informa-   tion regarding rifle shots coaching recruits or of its military value, he has only got to write to Mr Cole, Secretary, V.R.A., and no doubt he will get all the information he requires. He also wonders that I have not offered my services in return for the sport I have had. That is easily answered seeing that I cannot pass the doctor. Then again he says that when members were called up in October they applied for exemption. There were only three members applied for exemption, and one of them (if I am not mistaken) is a relative of "Anti-Humbug," and had no encumbrance either. For the   information of "Anti-Humbug" and his friends (for I suppose he has some) there are from 12 to 15 members who follow up ri...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir, — Being a reader of the local paper and taking an interest in the controversy between "Anti-Humbug" and Mr Apted re the usefulness of Rifle Clubs, I cannot help but admire the able manner in which Mr Apted has dealt with his meddlesome opponent. Even, as stated, that men over the eligible age are members of Rifle Clubs, after reading of the way that Major Red- mond, who was 56 years of age, and re- signed a safe position to lead his men in battle, and gave his life for his country, "Anti-Humbug" should feel very small indeed. Being a newcomer in the district and a great admirer of Mr Apted, who I consider is our leading progressive citizen, I am sure that it only wants Mr Apted to offer himself as a candidate for some impor- tant position, when the seat would be his. I am, Yours, etc., NATIONALIST.
