Change. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

Change. Paddy Doolao went into a shop one day to buy eggs. "What are eggs to day?" "Eggs are eggs to-day, Paddy," re plied the shop-man, looking quite tri umphantly at two or three -young lady customers who happened to he in the shop. "Faith, I'm glad to hear you 6ay so," replied Paddy, "for the last ones I got here were chickens." If a man—It doesn't matter in what station of life—has nothing to do, he is in the most dangerous condition he can be in.

EUROPE'S RICHEST CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

EUROPE'S RICHEST CITY. Which is the richest city in Eu rope? Neither London nor Paris nor Milan, but Basle, the great Swiss railway centre, Zurich, in a neighbor ing canton, coming second. This is proportionate to the number of in habitants. Basle's richest citizen boasts a fortune of £500,000; an other has £300,000, while no fewer . than sixteen residents pay income tax on a round million dollars. Eighty-two are "French million aires," possessing fortunes of a mil lion francs. The average wage-earn ing capacities of the various profes sions form an interesting contrast. Basle's doctors—the place is flood- - ed with medical men—are the worst paid, averaging only £240 a year; druggists are good for more, and lawyers the same. Professors, on the other hand, earn something like £500 a year, and bank directors any where from £1000 to £1200.

Saved By a Bet. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

Saved By a Bet. When Colonel Hay, notorious for his love of gambling and betting, was' severely wounded in the Peninsular War, two brother-officers came across his apparently lifeless body. "Poor Hay! He's gone at last," said one named Winsor. A faint voice came from the ground: "I'll lay you a cool hundred he's not." His death seemed only a question of minutes, but he continued, "Enter the bet, and you, Marston"—addressing the other officer—"be witness." He then fainted. When he was taken to hospital the surgeon told him the bullet could only be removed by sawing through two ribs and intro ducing a child's hand to extract it, as forceps could not touch it. "The chances are," he added, "that you will die under the operation." "If Winsor will make his bet double or quits, I'll consent," said the colonel. Winsor agreed. "Now saw away," said Hay. "I won't die." And he did not. "But for that bet," he said after wards, "I should be a dead man; it was my determination to win it that I kep...

CHEERFUL COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

CHEERFUL COURAGE. Very opportunely, a League of Anti Pessimists has been formed. The promoters announce that "We are not a league of optimists; Ave do not -want to ignore danger, to neglect warning's, or to appear light-hearted in the face of death and disaster; hut we do want to remember that 'behind the clouds is the sun still shining.' The league is non-political, non-de nominational, and open to all—rich, poor, young, old, men or women. The only condition is that the promise, once made, must be kept." The promise is to keep the rules, which are as follows: — (1) To fight the spirit of pessim ism, particularly in connection with the war, which is apt to detract from natural courage. (2) To cheer, by any means in your power, those around you, and to give help and sympathy to those who hava very real cause for grief or anxiety. (3) To refrain from grumbling at any hardships, small or great, which you may be called upon to endure. (4) :To disregard all unauthentica ted reports, and ...

Made Them Smile. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

Made Them Smile. The following incident is vouched for by parties well acquainted with the hoy, now a young professor in one of our large cities. He was the soil of a clergyman, and though only five years old, bright and clever beyond his years. It was at a dinner given by his mother to a few intimate friends. Master W Avas allowed his usual place at table, but, becoming unruly, was, by way of punishment, trans ferred to a side-table, whither nurse had removed his little plate, knife and fork, by mamma's orders. No sooner was he seated in his high chair again than, bowing his head and clasping his hands on his soile 1 bib, he lisped with apparent reverence and great gravity: — "O Lord, I thank Thee that Thou has prepared a table for me in the presence of mine enemies." It was with difficulty that the "grown-ups" kept their smiles from becoming audible. Hotel Manager: I told you to take the bill up to room twelve. Buttons: I did, sir. Manager:: Impossible! I hear the gentleman still ...

IF KRUPPS WERE CRIPPLED? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

IF KRUPPS WERE CRIPPLED? Were Krupps's works to be crippled more than half the battle would be won. That the Allies are quite alive to the importance of this fact is revealed in the report that the daunt less British aviator who flew over Dusseldorf was very near the works. A colossal enterprise, the works dominate the whole of Essen, and something like 70,000 workmen are employed. Situated in the centre of Essen, close to the railway, they, together with their attendant institu tions, cover an area of 500 acres, or about three times the size of Hyde Park. The tentacle arms of the vast establishment stretch out, octupus like, on all sides. Two thousand trucks and over fifty locomotives rush along these tracks daily convey ing Germany's guns, armor-plate, am munition, and shells to German garri sons, forts, ports and harbors. Six thousand tons of coal, coke and briquettes are poured daily into the huge creature's rapacious jaws. One and a quarter million tons of fuel are required ann...

THK PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Printed and published by Hubert Alfred Adams Sole Proprietor, at the office of the "Qrenville Standard" newspaper, Olyde street, Lintoa, in the State of Yiotoria. Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1915. Mrs Mary Poultney, who some years acted as librarian at the Linton Public Library, died at her residence in Bal larat on Monday night, at the age of 50 years. After some days of very boisterous weather, a few sharp showers of rain fell at Linton on Monday. Nineteen points was the register locally, but this was much below the average for the surrounding district. It is to be hoped that a more copious downpour will shortly be vouchsafed. The Linton fire-bell rang out an alarm on Monday night, which brought out the brigade and a large number oi residents. Fortunately the fire, which occurred amongst some rubbish at the back of Mr R. Cbing's store, was soon extinguished and all danger avert...

THE RIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

THE RIVALS. By Jane Doe. "Won't you, Wish?" "No." Jack Starr, grimy and workstained. peered anxiously under the girl's low ered sunbonnet, with its lilac strings. "Think what it means to me, lassie, before you make your decision. For pity's sake, don't play with my feel ings." He caught hold of her arm de ferentially, but she motioned him away. "I can offer you a good home, and, Heaven knows, I- love you as much as a man can love a woman. Say you will be my wife, Wish!" Wish Evans, of the Wedgwood-blue eyes and the old-gold hair, smiled softly up at the man at her side. "I'm sorry, Jack, but I can't. I don't care for you in that way at all." "There's someone else, maybe. Jim Banes, for instance?" The girl's eyes flashed and she stamped her foot imperiously. "You've no right to question me. Jim Banes has never spoken a word of love to me, and if he had, it's none of your business. You've asked me to be your wife, and you've had your answer." She turned on her heel to go, but the man ...

FAMOUS WAR DESPATCHES. Messages That Have Thrilled the World. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

FAMOUS WAR DESPATCHES. Messages That Have Thrilled the World. The despatches of Wellington from the Peninsula are classics of their kind, so concentrated and masterly are they, but possibly the most me morable despatch which ever reached these shores lies under a glass case in the British Museum. It is the de spatch announcing the Battle of Tra falgar and the death of Nelson. It is one of the great thrilling messages of the world, a message which meant, although perhaps not even English statesmen realised it at the time, that command of the sea and that immun ity of our shores and the shores of our great colonies from fear of attack which goes .with a supreme Navy. The despatch is simple and unadorn ed. It was written by Nelson's sec ond in command, the noble Colling wood. "The ever-to-be-lamented death," it runs, "of Vice-Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson, who, in the late conflict with the enemy, fell in the hour of victory." Then follows an account of the great fight, concluding with ...

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

CHAPTER XIV. It was the evening of that same day. Sir John had taken his wife's advice and had left town, giving no information as to where he was go ing. Before approaching Margaret, Lady Alicia called her younger daughter to her. "You are going to the Duchess of Perthshire's hall to-night," she said. "It is time that you ended this non sensical sort of mourning for one who after all is no connection of ours. It is not fair on Bletchley, and I par ticularly desire that you should go to this ball. I shall take you myself, Dolly. I have something more to say to you. It is about your sister." The girl looked at her mother half nervously and colored hotly. "Don't—don't be hard on Meg, mother," she said. i Lady Alicia ignored the remark. ; She was dressed for dinner and look ed superb. Before Petkoff had help ed her she had been compelled to bor row money on a good deal of her jewellery, but to-night she wore a splendid number of diamonds, and in her beautiful gown and her gleaming jewe...

HUGE ENGINES OF WAR. Siege Guns Which Fire One-Ton Shells. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

HUGE ENGINES OF WAR. j Siege Guns Which Fire OnevTon Shells. The extraordinary advance made in the science of warfare in recent years is in no way better illustrated than in the matter of siege guns, such as were used by- the Germans to subdue the Liege fortresses. The mediaeval cannon was clumsy, made of iron bars hooped together with iron rings and projecting stones; this ineffect ive engine was discarded in favor of bronze "bombards" and cast-iron can nonades. To-day, however, the siege gun is a cumbrous mass of steel or wrought iron, weighing anything from 40 tons to 150 tons. The largest are capable of firing a shell weighing practically one ton, and with sufficient force to penetrate wrought-iron at a distance of 1000 yards to a depth of nearly 2 ft. While some are sighted for a range of five miles, and at that dis tance may be relied upon to strike an object 10ft. high, in actual battle would rarely be opened at a greater range than about two miles, owing to atmospheric and o...

BRILLIANT HORSEMEN. Daring Feats That Won the V.C. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

BRILLIANT HORSEMEN. Daring Feats That Won the V.C. The very word "cavalry" sets one's pulse beattetg and brings to mind a thousand dashing feats of bravery such as the splendid charges of the Heavy and Light Brigades at Bala clava, .when .Lord Cardigan made his historic leap over one of the guns and Lieutenant A. R. Dunn, of the 11th Hussars, charged back into the Valley of Death alone to save a fall en comrade from the Russian Dra goons. Full well did the gallant offi- I cer know the risk he took, for his ! horse was the most notorious kicker in the regiment, at times absolutely | unmanageable. Once fairly engaged | in the melee, Dunn's charger set to and kicked furiously, almost unseat ing his rider, and yet he stuck to it and sabred three Russians out of their saddles and brought Sergeant Pentley out of action. Not content with this, he went to the aid of' Trooper Levett, also of the Eleventh and saved his life after slaying a Russian H'ussar who was doing his best to cut down th...

By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIII. Lady Alicia played the coward a certain number of days; then she rose and assumed her old bearing. The date of her younger daughter's wedding was now near at hand, and it was not a time for mourning and sorrow. Before she set out to' bring her will to bear on Margaret, she had an interview with her husband. It was now known officially that Rupert Kentley had perished at sea. The young man's death was a real grief to Sir John Torrington, and he would gladly have let all the world know this. As it was, he spent his days in trying to comfort and con sole the mother of Rupert. He had not yet dared to approach Margaret, for in his heart there was a great re morse and a great sorrow. He al most felt at times as if he were guilty of the death of the young man whom Margaret loved with all the strength, the tenderness, and the passion of which her...

ELECTRICITY ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

ELECTRICITY ON THE FARM. Strenuous efforts are 'being made to emphasise electricity as an indis pensable handmaid for all work upon a farm. At the recent iagricultual show held in Christiana an interest ing model farm conducted on this principle constituted a prominent fea ture. The energy for this farm was supposed to come from a small water fall in the vicinity, which had been duly harnessed. The healthy crops in me fields had been raised upon fer tilisers electrically manufactured. The farm house and all the outbuildings were electrically lighted, an electric stove was in the kitchen, while every heating and cooking operation was conducted by electricity. The self same agent was utilised also for pro ducing unlimited quantities of hot water. Knives, boots and culinary utensils were cleaned by its means, while coffee was ground, bread was cut, and juice-pressing machines were likewise operated. Electric radiators heated every room, a<nd the farmer was supplied with a de...

A WONDERFUL TALKER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

A WONDERFUL TALKER. Mr. Hilaire Belloc's remarkable prophecy regarding the present war, in a magazine article some time back, and his more recent writings on the "present struggle, have brought him into a good deal of prominence late ly. Mr. Belloc was one of the most fluent speakers in the House of Com mons, and it is said that when he made a speech on military matters he was able to conjure up before the House so vivid a picture that guns could be seen trundling into position, shells could be heard bursting, and troops could be seen going into ac tion. It has been said that there is no place in the world Mr. Belloc has not visited, in imagination at all events. His gift of speech once got him out of a tight corner in Italy during one of his tramping holidays. Knapsack on back, and I-care-for nobody look on his Napoleonic face he marched into a remote village and for some reason or other the peas ants took him for a spy. Out came their knives, and he was given the choice of being s...

SILENT FRENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

SILENT FRENCH. In the course of his brilliant career, General Sir John French has had many narrow escapes. They started at Elandslaagte, in which the Boer po sition was captured and the Johannes burg commando almost annihilated. French tolil his men during the mur derous five minutes outside the laager that he had never been in such a tight corner before. In a letter to his wife afterwards he remarked, "I never thouglht I could come out alive." He escaped from Ladysmith by the skin of his teeth, lying flat on the floor of the railway carriage amid a shower of Boer bullets. Yet during the whole campaign he scarcely had a scratch. General French was worshipped by his men during the Boer War. Here are two tributes from the ranks: "What a good leader General French is!" wrote Driver Payne, of the Royal Horse Artillery. "He s ems so cool at excitable moments; he does not lose his Ihead and rush his men into danger. In fact, lie always looks be fore he leaps, and when he does leap he make...

I j OLD LADY'S SECRET. An old lady, who managed to re tain an appearance much younger than her years, with a bright eye and a smooth, healthful skin, although her age was over seventy, was asked how she contrived to retain her physi cal cl-arms. This was her reply:— "I know how to forget disagreeable things. "I tried to master the art of saying pleasant things. "I did not expect too much, of my frien s. "I kept my nerves well in hand, and did not allow them to bore other people. "I tried to find congenial any work that came to hand. "I retained the illusions of my youth, and did not believe 'every man. a liar' and every woman spiteful. ,!I did my best to relieve the mis ery I came in contact with, and sym / pathised with the suffering. 1 "In fact, I tried to do to others' as I would be done by, and you see me 1 in consequence reaping the fruits of happiness and a peaceful old age." There are many of us who might do worse than begin to try that old lady's code of behavior and see if,...
