ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 22 January 1914

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. Has anyone ever»seen an officer In uniform going in or out of the "War Office (except on the occasion of a royal function in London), or a Household Cavalry man walking about the streets in his " war paint?" If any of the major-generals employ ed at the "War Office ventured to go to work there one day in any kind of uni form, the odds are that the War Office doctor would be sent round to see whe ther anything had happened to the poor man's brains. It is not like that in France or Ger many. If you visit a friend in the French War Office, you will find him up to the chin in uniform as he sits behind his desk. All the officers In the place are in uniform. It is the same in Berlin. In our own War Office (says the "Daily Express") no officer wears uni form, and it is doubtful whether the colonel of the Guards regiment in Lon don puts his uniform on once a mon.h. He is in his office every day, but he wears his own private clothes, and the only occasion o...

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 22 January 1914

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. Half the start of what Is perhaps the loneliest mission station in the world Is spending a brief furlough. In Eng land. That half-staff Is the Rev; S. M. Stewart, of the Colonial and Continen tal Church Society, whose pernienont address is anywhere in Ungava, the groat icebound province between La brador and Hudson's Bay—a thousand miles further from civilisation than the scene of Orenfell's work in Labrador. The extent of his remoteness from the ordinary twentieth century world may be gauged by the fact that letters are delivered In Ungava once a year (says the "Daily Mall" of November 27). "WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN. "Tho most anxious moment of the year/' said Mr Stewart, "Is when the Hudson Bay Company's vessel from England Is sighted, and we are waiting to knotw whether she brings us good news or ill. A few years ago my fur lough was nearly due, and I was look ing forward to getting back to see my old father In Ireland. Then the ship came...

CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 22 January 1914

CHAPTER VII. ' "Queenic—thank God you've come!" choked Beryl. It was past ten o'clock, night time, and Beryl, .hearing a cab draw up. had hurried down to the front door. "How's mother?" asked Queenie. She was the colour of death, and was carrying her valise. She was wearing the dress she wore that afternoon in the assize court at Stilchester. It was all like a blurred nightmare, people with shadowy figures; her most distinct memory that of a kind, mo therly woman, who had helped her from the court, put her into a cab, driven her to the single room she had taken in Stilchester, had promised to see Mr. Palmer and give all messages and a note -to him, and, after the writing of a note, had driven her in a cab to the station. " How's mother J" " Oh, Queenie," Beryl was sobbing now, "so bad—we're not allowed in the room—two doctors—and they had to send for oxygen—they're giving mother oxygen now. As soon as Michael—Mr. Thorne—heard he telephoned to Har lev-street for a specialist!" Beryl ...

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 22 January 1914

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OP ACTORS Tho discussion of the question of the treatment of performing animals has naturally aroused considerable in terest among our readers, with tho re sult that the contents of our letter-bag have been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel J. G. Hawker calls attention to the -current mopth's issue of tho "Animals" Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian, and Mr C. E. Haverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify to the fact that the most horrible tor ture^ln very many instances are in flicted upon performing animals. Mr Melford contends, that talk alone will not stir the pulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fail to raise an eyelid, let alone a hand to help. It Is necessary for the public to be convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty exists, and then judgment and punishment will quickly follow. And as a consequence, to quote his own words, "the Infernal master a...

The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender,'■ "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Sights Reserved.) CHATTER VI. Witnesses had been examined and cross-examined. Medical experts, call ed respectively for the defence and the prosecution, had flatly -disagreed on the symptoms of the after effects of cer tain narcotics. Bank clerks and offi cials had gone into the figure side of the case. A famous maker of safes and strong rooms had given expert evi dence. Police and detectives had gone over the old ground, but more minutely than before the magistrates. Every effort had been made to trace Roy Stannard; the description furnished by the prisoner had been more widely cir culated, and the' bank had offered a re- I ward; but the man seemed to have van ished into thin air. The defence had failed to produce a single witness to prove such a man's presence in> Hasted on the nighty of the crime, as apart from the prisoner's uncorroborated statement. The roomy assiz...

DISTRICT NEWS. DOOKIE Great interest and keen compe- tion was displayed at the sale of the publican's booth, on Monday last in connection with the Dookie Race Club's annual meeting to be held on 28th Jan.
