A CLEVER SWINDLING DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915

A CLEVER SWINDLING DEVICE. A clever device was invented by a pair of 'cute Yankee scoundrels for swindling a well-known, jeweller. The pair engaged apartments at one of the most fashionable hotels, and one day strolled in together to the jeweller's shop to make some purchases. The man of business was all affabil;ty, for the Americans bore all the evidences of men of wealth, but finally, after much inspection and examination, de cided on the purchase of a case of jewels to the value of close on £700. They asked that the case, a hand some one in dark brown leather, should- be tied up and sealed in their presence, a-nd that it should be sent next day to their hotel, when they would pay the bill and receive the jewels. Accordingly it was done. The jew eller's confidential clerk arrived at the hotel, was shown up to the Americans' room, and was there by one of them, wbo asked him to be seated pending the arrival of the other. (The clerk did not notice at the time that his back was quite ...

Should Australia's Half-Million Bachelors be Taxed? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

Shoals Hustraiia's Sall-UIil Hoq Basiieiors He Taxed ? In ordinary time3 the Bachelor Tax is a joke to be fired off at smoke-nights and sewing meetings ; bat it appears to be a very seri<>u3 problem just now, for Mr J. B. Sharpe, Federal member for Oxley, tells " Everylady's Jonrnal " for "March (just issued) that he intends bringing a Bill before Parliament for the purpose of imposing a tax on Aus tralia's half-million bachelors. Follow ing up the receipt of this information, " Everylady's Journal " invited a num ber of prominent men to offer opinions upon the right or wrong of such a tax. Lord Mayor Sir David Hennessy says that bachelors ought to be taxed, and that he has always advocated a bachelor tax in season and out. Mr Carmichael, Minister of Public Instruc tion, in New South Wales, says there are better ways, both of raising revenue and of getting our young men married off. " The girls," says Mr Carmichael, " have the remedy in their own hands. They have the v...

Municipal Amalgamation. FUTURE OF SMYTHESDALE AND SCARSDALE BOROUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

Q FUTURE OF SMYTHESDALE AND SCARSDALE BOROUGHS. Councillors from Brawns and Seers dale Borough, and Smythesdale Borough were introduced on Wednesday by Mr Chatham, M.L.A.. to Mr Livingston, in the absence of Mr Haglethorn, re garding the position of the two bor oughs under the new section of the Local Government Act dealing with decadent municipalities. The proposals put for ward were :—(1) The two boroughs should be united and annex a small por tion of the Grenville Shire, or (2) The boroughs to form a central riding of the Shire of Gronville. In supporting the representations, Cr Statton, Scarsdale, said the borough had always been able to keep its roads in fine order, while thp majority of the roads in the East riding of Grenville were in a very neglected state. Scarsdale had de clined owing to depression in the mining industry, but conservation of water in the district would allow 1500 acres of land to be irrigated. Those boroughs were free of debt, and, by entering the large ri...

FORMERLY THE ORGANISING CHAPLAIN TO THE BISHOP Of GRAFTON AND ARIMLE Writes this letter stating the great good received, from Clements Tonic. The Rev. F. W. HARRIS-WALKER is one of the best known workers in the Church, and is at present associated with one of the lead ing churches in N.S.W. His labors in this field extend over 25 years. His letter, every word of which is worth reading, carries con viction by reason of its earnestness and the desire expressed in it that good may result from its publication.

I found it a splendid medicine to regulate the system, also a Tonic bracing the nerves. Having derived such great be...

MY BROTHER JUDAS [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

MY BROTHER JUDAS By Arthur McEwen in the "Argonaut." I was born twins. But I did not dis cover this until I, or rather we, had grown to manhood. Up to my eighteenth year I was not conscious of being different from other youths, except that my ambition was graver and my conscience more sensi tive. A Strong sense f the sinfulness of the world abode in me and bred a fervid desire to become a preacher of the gospel. Among the people of the church with which I allied myself, 1 at once became conspicuous. My in tensity at the prayer meetings, my patient submission to scoffings and contumely as a distributor of tracts, my zeal as a worker for the up holding of the church's mission off shoot in the slums, and, beyond all, my purpose of fitting myself for the functions of the sacred desk, won me a high repute for sanctity. But this gave me no pleasure, since I was devoid of vanity. I knew my self as God knew me, and more pleas ing conceptions of my character were, I well understand, due to i...

Mining News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

With the exception of a few small de tails, the 20-head mill at the Scarsdale mine is completed, and ready for a trial ran. The east cross-cut at the 475 feet level is in hard sandstone country. They anticipate reachiug the lode at any time. At the !N"ew Jubilee the rise from the 1000 feet level is up 42 feet, at which point the lode has been displaced by a fault. Up to it there was 10in. of stone, carrying a little gold. The lode in the stopes going north is 1 foot wide and payable. At the 1100 feet level the west crosscut is advanced to 50 feet, through slate and sandstone country. The fortnight's return of 130 oz. 1 dwt., from 550 tons of ore, was better than expected, and is payable. The gold yield ot the Commonwealth for the first two months of the current year amounted, according to returns fur nished by the Mines Departments of the principal States, to 332,981 fine oz. The total was 14,992 fine oz. less than the aggregate for the corresponding portion of 1914.

THE TOLL OF WAR. What Great Battles Cost in Human Lives. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

THE TOLL OF WAR. What Great Battles Cost in Human Lives. The toll—counted in human lives —of the great struggle against Ger man militarism is going to be terri bly heavy. Of that there are already unmistakable indications, and the women of the nation must prepare themselves to bear stoically and cour ageously the great sacrifices which are inevitable, finding comfort in the knowledge that they are giving their husbands^ and sons in the cause of liberty and justice and civilisation. Modern warfare is conducted by such greatly-increased numbers that the casualty lists must necessarily be far higher than in bygone days, but it is some consolation to know that the percentage of combatants who fall has decreased considerably as compared with the battles which were fought under more primitive conditions. Although the loss of over 2000 kill ed and wounded sustained by the British Expeditionary Force in its first engagement with the Germans is the largest in a single battle since No vember ...

Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

There are some who are apt to take the view that it is ridiculous that one car maker should recommend a particular brand of oil for his engine, and another maker some entirely different brand. They assume that if one engine runs on a certain oil every other engine must run equally well upon it. They make no allowance for the fact that the normal speeds, bearing loads, and temperatures may vary very considerably so that an oil tvbich may be qaite suitable in one caSe is entirely unsuitable in the another. There is also an erroneous opinion that car makers recommend certain brands from mercenary motives, as though any maker of repute would be so foolish as to damage his reputation by prescribing un suitable oil for his eagine, because he could make sixpence or a shilling a gallon more upon it in the few cases where he was called upon to supply it. As a matter of fact the average car maker does not supply the lubricating oil as the owner of the car buys it from his local garage. If mot...

TECHNICAL FALLACIES OF THE PRESENT WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

TECHNICAL FALLACIES OF THE PRESENT WAR. The following interesting leader from the "Scientific Americaii" should go some way to remove certain mis conceptions prevalent both in Eng land and America regarding big guns and the explosives being used in the present war: — The daily press is complaining of the severe censorship exercised over news from the seat of war; neverthe less, it would be better in some re spects for the public if the censor's blue pencil were used even more freely than it is. We refer to the sensational and misleading technical absurdities which from time to time are passed by the censor and permitted to go broadcast over the world for the con fusion and bewilderment of the pub lic, which is weary of rumors and asks only for the facts. If it is the duty of the censor to eliminate any statement which , might be of value to the enemy, surely it is his duty, also, to cut out of the despatches exaggera ted statements as to the nature and destructive effect of the weap...

Logical epilepsia Treatment. <9 IMPORTANCE OF ELIMINATING ACIDITY AND FOOD FERMENTA TION. During the past two or three years reports have frequently appeared in the Press concerning the remarkable value of bi8urated magnesia as an antacid ; and its ability to promote normal, healthy digestion by preventing food fermenta tion and neutralising dangerous stomach acid has often been demonstrated. Until receutly chemists could not supply bisur ated magnesia in powder form only, half a teaspoonful of which, taken in a little watpr after meals, almost instantly stops all fermentation and neutralises acid, but sufferers from stomach trouble will be glad to learn that, after a long series of experiments, a leading firm of manufac turing chemists has now succeeded in producing a 5-graiu mint-flavored tablet and also an effervescent tablet, both of which combine all the valuable antacid properties of the ordinary bisurated magnesia in a very convenient form. These new tablets of bis...

NAPOLEON'S WAR SAYINGS. "My Greatest Fault." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

: ; . i I NAPOLEON'S WAR SAYINGS. I "My Greatest Fault." Here are a few striking sentences by the great Napoleon: — The sight of a battlefield after the fight is enough to inspire Princes with a love of peace and a horror of war. It is better to have an open en emy than a doubtful ally. My great est fault, perhaps, was not having de throned the King of Prussia when J could have done so easily. Intelligence has rights before force. Force without intelligence is nothing.. To a father who loses his children victory has no charms. When the heart speaks, glory is itself an illu sion. Tents are unhealthy; it is much better for the soldier to bivouac in the open air, for then he can build a fire and sleep with warm feet. Tents are only necessary for. general offi cers, who are obliged to read and con sult their maps. The fate of war is to be exalted in the morning and low enough at night. There is but one step from triumph to ruin. It is in times of difficulty that great men and great nati...

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

A generally healthy tune pervades the cables from Europe. Following upon the British successes at Neuve Chapelle comes news of the capture by the French of Vanguois, the capture of which unmasks the operations of the Germans to the north-west of Verdun, and threatens the enemy's communi cations in the Argonne. The Socialist Press of Germany, com menting on the further reduction of the allowance of bread, declares that it is proof Germany is engaged in a losing cause. This view is supported by the fact that, on the suggestion of the Government, many wealthy families have gone abroad. It is believed that Field-Marshal von der Goltz, the German officer who was sent by the Kaiser to reorganise the Turkish army, has been murdered. The Athens correspondent of the "Daily Chronicle," states that von der Goltz and a large staff recently went to Smyr na, in Asia Minor, to supervise the strengthening of the fortifications there. The field-marshal and his staff suddenly disappeared, and Germans...

The vexed questioa of the drink traffic is once more agitated by the Federal conference of Licensed Victuallers' As sociations, which was opened in Adelaide on Wednesday. The claims of the hotel keepers are pat forward in a series of motions, very forcibly expressed, and no j doubt very convincing to those who agree with them. It is wonderful how convincing we find arguments with which we are agreed beforehand. The motions referred to begin by. pointing out that the trade contributes no less than seven ! millions to the Commonwealth revenue, which would have to be made up some how if prohibition ruled ; also that an 1 immense loss of employment would ensue if beer no longer frothed ...

COST OF DREADNOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 March 1915

COST OF DREADNOUGHT. Some idea of the fighting power of a Dreadnought may be gathered from the fact that the extreme range of its guns is twenty-five miles, while they can be very effective at a range of twelve miles. They are most deadly, however, at a range of between five or six miles. The 12in. gun of a Dreadnought is 50ft. long, and if set up o-n end would be higher than many a country church tower. The cost of each gun is about £10,000, while each time it is fired £100 vanishes into the air. As a protection against the guns of the enemy, a Dreadnought is covered with armor costing £120 per ton, and as something like 4800 tons are used in covering the vessel, this means an expenditure of close upon £600,000. Boilers and machinery at £325,000; I motor and steam boats at £8000; torpedo-tubes at £3000 each, and tor pedoes at £500 each; and £50,000 for i searchlights and electrical fittings, are other items in the bill which go to make a Dreadnought the costliest ves sel afloflat.<...
