HISTORIC MELBOURNE ORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915
HISTORIC MELBOURNE ORGAN. Brother Jeffrey said the history or the present Wesley Church organ was remarkable. Supposed to have been in Germany a long while ago, and supposed to have been in a Dublin music-hall. A tangible tact was that a Catholic priest bought it for a church in Hrazil. It was shipped to Rio, by a ship calling there on the way to Melbourne. Baffling weather kept the ship out of Uio. The organ was brought on to .Melbourne, where the ship was wrecked at the heads. The Jonah organ came out quite safe, and was bought for £500 for the Mel bourne church. Ha'.f-a-crown admis sion was charged for thy opening con cert, and a Melbourne lady has kept one of the bills, printed on satin. Gov ernor Latrobe gave his patronage. The Sultan's harem has been trans ferred from Constantinople to Brous sa lu Asia Minor. When the times come3 for a landing force to attack Broussa there will bo no lack of volun teers.

FROM -VARIOUS SOURCES. The great war game: Shell out. At the Seymour camp there is n i stadium, at which tho soldiers settle their differences. Uefore a fight be- , gins tho combatants tell the specta tors their version of what led to tho contest. The reasons for the disputes .ire many and peculiar. One pugilis tic soldier, pointing to his opponent, told the crowd: "lie collared mo i ioomin- prayer-book, and ha won t give it back."

We have received a copy ''lc Australian Mercantile, Land and Finance Csmpany's, Limited, annual wool review for Australia for the past season. The review is a book of some 32 pages and the past season's dip iscomprehensivcly dealt with. The review should be eagerly looked forward to. The twelve months under review will long be remembered as a period during which all branches of com merce have been called upon to lace most abnormal conditions. Naturally, the war overshadowed all else, but for those engaged in pastoral pur suits not only have 'many selling difficulties had to be surmounted, but, owing to the influence of the drought, the pastoral conditions throughout the Commonwealth, with the exception of Queensland, have .been deplorable. The almost total failure of the crops and consequently acute shortage and high price ot fodder imposed a tremendous burden 011 those who were oblige...

THE DESPATCH RIDERS WORK WHEN THE WIRES ARE DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915
THE DESPATCH RIDERS I WORK WHEN THE WIRES ARE DOWN. Flashing through the traffic, mas ters of every sort of road, go the trus ty despatch riders. A great many of them nro uiulergraduatcs from the universities, and these include several young Australians, some of them Hhodes scholars With telephone and telegraph so elaborately developed, you wonder at the demand for these scorchers on tho roads; but when the battle is hottest tho man is still more reliable than the most eilicient me chanism. The shelling is sometimes so fierce that all the telephone lines from the trenches to the rear are de stroyed, and it is then that the under graduato dashes out from cover and invites the enemy to do its worst. In tho earlier days of the war, before the trenches were so complete and sig nalling across tho rival lines was easier than it is now, the tapping of wires was notoriously common. At tlio Aisno a well-known British gene ral, who had to bo close to the lines, was repeatedly 6lielled out of ...

MYSTERY SHIPS OF ENGLAND. "WHIPPETS" TO FIGHT GERMAN SUBMARINES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915
MYSTERY SHIPS OF ENGLAND. "WHIPPETS" TO FIGHT GERMAN SUBMARINES. In guarded terms the statement has come from the British Admiralty that steps are rapidly being taken and completed that will completely coun teract the present German submarine menace to shipping on the high seas. •What these new "steps" are is hard to define, and is known only to the most trusted members of the Admir alty staff and the workmen, hut there are many mysterious stories of a new | class of warship. The big dockyards are said to be j working night and day in turning out | this new type of ship in considerable numbers. It is declared to be of ex tremely shallow draught, low-lying so as to be almost Invisible—in fact, practically a sea going gun-platform. These strange craft are oil-driven, with a speed of 40 knots and a bit more. It is conjectured that their use will he twofold—for anti-submarine war fare and for operating in extremely shallow waters against land defences or shipping. They carry one gun, an...

CHASED BY A SHARK. MOVING PICTURE ACTOR DEFIES MAN-EATER. REPRODUCING A THRILLING SCENE. Actors for the "movies'* are requir ed to perform strange and dangerous tasks at times, but there has prob ably been nothing to equal the experi ence of the man who allowed himself to be dropped into the water and chas ed by a 15-foot shark in order to repro duce a sceno in Jack London's fam ous novel, "The Sea Wolf," which is being screened at the picture theatres in Melbourne this week. Ho took the role of Mugridge, the Cockney cook, against whose culinary methods the crew of The Ghost rose in rebellion. He wanted washing, they said, and Wolf Larsen, ever oblig ing where discomfort and brutality to his men could be caused, ordered the cook to be thrown overboard and trailed behind the whaler. As „ the cook hit the water an ominous black triangle, rising and falling in the swell of the waves a hundred yards off, was galvanised into activity. In a swirl cf foam a fifteen foot shark shot alongsid...

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite Houst\ London, 17/7/1915. The Recruiting Campaign. Lord Kitchener began a fresh re cruiting campaign in the City of Lon don by speaking at a meeting at the Guildhall on Kridav last, and he re ceived a very enthusiastic reception all along tin? line of route. London seems more lull than ever oi men back oil leave from the iront. 1 have never seen so many as on Monday, when "00 heroes went to Buckingham Palace to receive their decorations di rect from the King. Sergeant O'Learv, the famous young Irish V.C., was the hero of London on Saturday last, when he formed the great attraction at a monster recruiting meeting in Hyde I'ark. He is a modest young fellow, quite unspoilt by the popular adulation. Mr. T. P. O'Connor, M.P., who was a leading figure in the de monstrations. declared thai although he had been at many historic and great gatherings in Hyde Park, the reception of O'Leary there was the greatest he had over witnessed in his life.

AS THE TURKS SEE IT. WHAT OUR TROOPS HAVE TO FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915
j AS THE TURKS SEE IX_ j WHAT OUR TROOPS HAVE TO FACE. Mr. Granville l'ortescue, au Ameri can correspondent at Constantinople, gives a vivid picture of the struggle at the Dardanelles as it looked from (lie Turkish side prior to the recent successes of tho Allies. Since the attack on the Straits tho Turks have been training with a con scientiousness only exceeded by the soldiers of Kitchener's Army. All Turkey is au armed camp. From tile moment you cross the border at Mus tafa Pasha until you reach Constan tinople you are passing Turkish troops in the making. The "forts that guard the Narrows, from Nagara and Kilia to Kilid Bahr and Chatiak, are not in a strict sense modern. Vet tested under the sever est attacks of high-power guus tho damage they have suffered is almost nil. A shot to be effective must strike directly in. the gun embrasure, an opening about 10ft. square in the face of the fort. Shells striking the wall or passing over it explode harmlessly. When it is remembered th...

SMOTHERED IN KISSES. RETURNED SOLDIER'S EXPERIENCE. At a public meeting at Lidcombe this week to welcome Private Fred Cummings, who was wounded at the Dardanelles, one speaker drew atten tion to the words o: a song, "We shall eheer you, shall iove you, we shall kiss you, when you come back," and said he hoped the promise would be made good. During an interval Cum mings was simply rushed. lie was kissed all over the face and once on the back of his neck, and appeared to enjoy the experience as thoroughly as the girls. Private Stocks, who also distin guished himself under fire, apparentlj got the whisper of what tvtis inteadcif., and although he had never feared to face the Turks with the bayonets he did not face the Lidcombe lassies.
HIGH EXPLOSIVES. WHAT THEY ARE AND HOW THEY ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915
HIGH EXPLOSIVES. WHAT THEY ARE AND HOW THEY ARE MADE. ' Tho characteristic of high explosive is the extreme violence and sudden ness of their detonation. Water is an explosive when it is heated and when it becomes steam, but the expansion is so slow that explosive results do not usually follow unless there is gross negligence. Gunpowder of the old typo expands more rapidly than water and produces a largo volume of gas, but agalu It acts with comparative geutleness. lligli explosives, on tho other haud, pass instantly from a solid or liquid form to gas and act with terrific ener gy, tearing to pieces any vessel which contains them. To make them act In this manner they usually require a detonator, which applies a violent shock to them and starts the explo sion. It Is a curious fact that most of the high explosives, when lighted with a match, burn quite quietly. The ex periment. Is not to bo recommended, as accidents will happen, hut in ninetj nine cases out of a hundred there is ; no ...

He use&lt;! to hurry up with water to the lirint; line, and carry back the wouudod. There were too many dead at first to bury. It was a terrj'oly heavy pull up and down Shr apnel Gully from the cove to the tof, of Braund's Hill. So "Murphy" P'.nched a couple of mules, and did |'yeoman service.

Time after time he climbed the hill, and did his noble work. Day after day ...
WHY THE HUNS WANT CALAIS. GERMAN GUNS WOULD DOMINATE DOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 September 1915
WHY THE HUNS WANT CALAIS. GERMAN GUNS WOULD DOMINATE DOVER. Students of naval and lmul opera tions consider that the significance of the German determination to reach Calais lies in the fact that possession of that city will afford to the Kaiser's forces complete domination of the water approach to Dover, on the Eng lish shores. It will moan, in other words, that invasion of England will become a dread reality and with tho English fleet powerless to open the straits. The range of the new German cru cible nickel shell high powered guns is known to a certainty to he twenty six miles. From Calais to Dover, or. lo he more specific, from the solid ground oil the right of the jetties when entering Calais to the sea front of the a-Ue port at Dover, is a distance of 21 35 nautical miles. From Fort Kouge, midway of the jetties, when entering Calais, to the same objective is 21.2 miles. From Fort Lapln, distant 1.1 miles ! eiow the shore end of the Calais jetties, to the end of the Admiralty ...
