II [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
II. Soon after the events recorded in the last chapter the Great War had broken out, and Warder Ben Tram mers, being an Army reservist, had, In company with some hundreds of his colleagues in the Prison Service, been called upon to rejoin the colors and fight for King and country. Mean while, Prisoner B 39 had left the pri son and gone none knew whither. Ben Trammers had first been sent to the depot to join his unit, after which he had embarked for "an un known destination." He had left be hind him a tearful little wife and three clinging young children, who would all pray unceasingly for daddy's safe leturn. As for Ben, he hoped that the Government would look after his dear ones during his absence in the matter of pay allowance, and went away with a stout if sad heart, determined to do his duty as a soldier of the King. It proved a terrible time for Ben Trammers, for his gallant regiment was in the thick of the fighting from the first, and he had just been en gaged in a fierce bayo...
THE POULTRY YARD. FEEDING AND REARING CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
THE POULTRY YARD. ! FEEDING AND REARING CHICKENS. Paper by Mr. A. H. Padman. This is a subject that is dealt with so frequently b>; poultry writers that I offer my experiences with some diffi dence. There are probably those pre sent who have raised many more chic kens than I have, and who have hand led many breeds. My hatching records show, approximately, 4000 chicks rais ed, and spread over 10 years. I may say that almost all were with incuba tors and virtually confined to White Leghorns. I am much in favor of ma chine-hatching. .The ease in handling, opportunities for close observation, tameness of chicks—lasting through life—freedom from lice, scaly leg and contagious diseases, oatweigh every thing in favor of the machine. In up to-date yards I reckon "Biddy" is a thing of the past, except for odd clutches out of the main hatching sea son. I therefore propose to confine my self to the incubator-hatchec stock and the producing of layers. In my opinion, next to strain, the care ...
III [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
III. Ben Trammers did not die, tor ne was soon up and about again,, the wound luckily liaving proved but a slight one, and he had once more joined his comrades in the fighting line. It was hot and dangerous work lying in the trenches with the enemy's shells bursting day and night over their heads, but they took it all philo sophically, and at times even jesting ly. Then came a day when the bugles rang out and the regiment was order ed to advance against the enemy. The fight continued fast and furious, and at last the British, getting within striking distance, were ordered to fix bayonets and charge the opposing Ger mans. Ben Trammers performed pro digies of valor that day, and escaped unhurt until the approach of the even ing, when suddenly he felt a series of curious, stinging sensations and knew that he was shot. Down he went and i lay conscious but helpless, suffering excruciating pain. His comrades were by this time a long distance away, and, j lifting up his head, he descried a...
Woman's Weapons. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
Woman's Weapons. A number of married men were re cently dining together at their club. The question was asked, "What trait in your wife do you consider the most expensive one?" The answers were as numerous as Jihe men in the party. With one it was vanity, another religion, or char ity, or love of dress. The last man to whom the question was put an swered oracularly, "Her tears!" I "Young man," said the fond father, I "in giving you my daughter I have en trusted you with the dearest treasure I of imy life." The young man was duly impress ed. Then, during the few minutes of impressive silence that followed, he heard the patter of rain against the window pane. .• "Gracious me!1' he exclaimed, "it's raining, and I haven't my umbrella. May I borrow yours to get to the sta tion?" "Young man," said the fond par ent, "I wouldn't trust anybody on earth with my umbrella."

THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
THE CONCERT. Mr Jack Morrissey and his talented company are always welcome in Linton, for they are dependable for a good night's entertainment. On Saturday night they certainly honored the cheque drawn by them on the Bank of Expectation ,* or, as our American friends say, they " delivered the good3." The singers were good, the elocutionists were ex cellent, and the dramatic performers were more than equal to the demands of the occasion. Cr T. Kennedy occupied the chair, and in opening the concert, said he was pleased to see so many present. The club held their annual gathering for a three-fold purpose. Firstly, they cele trated the festival of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, who in the fifth century brought Christianity to the Irish people—a faith from which they had never wavered. Secondly, the club provided the public with an afternoon and evening's amusement ; and thirdly, they joined in the effort to clear the new Catholic Church of debt. That church was acknowledged t...
St. Patrick's Day. SPORTS AT LINTON. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
— o SPORTS AT LINTOK There is a fascination about the horse which is never likely to die out. Even when the motor vehicle" has entirely sup planted the noble animal, it is more than probable that he will still be kept for sport by some, and as a pet by others. The Linton St. Patrick's Club has evolved a type of sports meeting which has justified itself by its success, and that success is due chiefly to the undying interest in the horse referred to above, but also to the skilful organisation of the club's secretary (Mr W. E. Young) and the other officials. They bave compiled, a class of programme which gives the spectator something to look at all the time. Every true Australian is a good good judge of a horse, and can ride one A race is soon over, but a display of horses, and of riding and driving, can be watched and discussed at leisnre. The gathering on Saturday last was very well attended. The weather of the preceding day had been very un pleasant, but on Saturday a cool change ca...
CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
CHAPTER XVIII. - Lady Alicia Torrington bit her lipB with vexation when she heard that her husband had slipped away into the country. Her irritation, however, passed peacefully, quickly. In fact, now that he was gone she saw dis tinct advantages- to herself in Sir John Torrington's absence, for, in truth, though he had given her his promise never to speak to Margaret about Rupert Kentley, she could "never be sure that Margaret's spirit might not break down even against her -will, and then if she were to make an appeal to her father then the truth would be known. The girl would re alise how basely she had been trick ed, and the marriage with Petkoff would never take place. And Lady Alicia was more determined than ever that her daughter should - marry the Russian. Though she hated and feared the Prince, Margaret's mother resolved to win. The introduction of Leah in to her life had shown her one dan ger. She had at once divined the pre sumptuous ambition of this unknown girl, who for s...
SUNSET AND DAWN CHAPTER XVII. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
SUNSET AND DAWN By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All- Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVII. Marcus Vinsen hardly knew how lie got through the hours of that night. Leah s repudiation of him had been a bitter blow, one which turned the last remnant of his love to hatred and made of him an" enemy. It was consoling to remember that her mother had to a certain extent left him in control of Leah's fortune, but just at this present state of af fairs Vinsen felt that even the money (which was, he knew, the only "thing connected with her mother thajt had any place in Leah's thoughts) would be of less importance than it would naturally have been if the girl's posi tion had been different. There had been a look in Prince Petkoff's eyes when lie had driven away from that big house which burned as an ugly remembrance. Possibly Leah had spoken of him to this Russian; spo ken slightingly, contemptuously. Though his love was de...
TO ARMS! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
TO ARMS! Hark ye the cannon, its gruff voice is Bounding The charge to the Legions of Night to advance; Hark to the tramping of hosts that are hounding Peace from her citadels: Now is your chance. Leave ye the plough, leave the pen in the inkstand, Speed from the fields wherein Sport has its sway; The Despots of Darkness are threat ening our homeland, Pill up the Ranks of the Right while ye may. Close down the concert, the doors throw asunder; Now where the stage is a continent , large The music of bugle preludes the ~ thunder Of horses and men as they sweep to the charge. Join ye the ranks of the army defend ing God's, land for God's message of Peace on the Earth. Done with the cant of this foreign pretending, Fight for the Truth—and for all ye are worth! The path of the Prussian is strewn with nis pillage, All of God's laws has the Tyrant abused. He has shot down the aged, and burn ed out the village . . . And women's sweet bodies lie vio late and bruised. Women, be brave, kiss yo...
GRAMMAR IN VERSE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
GRAMMAR IN VERSE. Remember, though box in the plural makes boxes, The plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes. And remember, though fleece iu the plural is fleeces, The plural of goose is not gooses or geeses. And note, too, though house in the plural is houses, The plural of mouse should be mice and not mouses. Mouse, it is true, in the plural is mice, But the plural of house should be houses, not hice; While foot, it is true, i>n the plural is feet, Yet the plural of root should be roots and pt reet.
THE LAST POST. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
THE LAST POST. An account of an impressive cere mony which, took place at the burial of ten British soldiers is given in the "Petit Parisien": — The procession was headed by the Abbe Lemire, member fcr the district in the Chamber of Deputies and Mayor of Hazebrouck, and a Protes tant clergyman. The Abbe Lemire delivered an address, in which he paid a warm tribute to the British sol diers. "Why," he asked, "have they aban doned everything, sacrificed every thing? Why do they descend upon our coasts every day like a wave that nothing can stay? Why are they standing by our sides armed for bat tle, calm, intrepid, gay and singing? Because they are champions of right. Right had been violated. The liberty of nations had been endangered on the Continent. Treaties which bore • their signature had been torn up. They rose and said 'No!' And there they lie for that cause. "You, monsieur, the pastor of the Protestant Church, in your mother tongue, and the Catholic priest in our ■ old Lj.tin of ...
A DESIRE REALISED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
A DESIRE REALISED. The members of a certain Manhat tan. family are chuckling over an epi sode .which resulted in the young man of the house getting what he had dreamed of for some time. This young man, aged 12, yearned to attend an art school and become a sculptor, but his father, sceptical as to the develop ment of an artistic instinct in his son, was very slow in determining whether or not the boy should spend his sum mer in studying art. "If I could see some of your work that was really clever I wouldn't hesi tate a minute," he announced, "but up to now you have done nothing much better than the average run of boys. And it's foolish to spend a lot of money on something that might not result in any good." "Training brings out what a feller can do," asserted the boy. S'o it stood until recently. One even ing the father and mother went to the theatre, leaving the boys in charge of a grown-up. The house was quiet when they returned, for every one had gone to bed and to sleep. "Wonder...
WANTED TO BE CERTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
WANTED TO BE CERTAIN. The caretaker of a house recently approached the grocer near by with a pajjer containing a white powder. "What do you think of this?" asked the caretaker. "Just taste it and tell me your opinion?' The grocer did as requested. "Well, Dick," said he, "I should say it was soda." "That's just what I said," replied the caretaker triumphantly. "I said that it was soda, but my wife says she knows it's rat poison. Just taste it again, please, and make sure." Scott: How long were you away on your wedding tour? Mott: Too long; it developed into a lecture tour.
IV [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
IV. A woman sat sobbing in a little room in the prison quarters at Bel nampton, with three young children clinging to her skirts. It was the wife of Ben Trammers, who had just been informed that her husband had lost his life at the front, and her grief was pitiable to behold. She was too absorbed in her sorrow to no tice the entrance of a lady, richly dressed and very beautiful, who came softly towards her. ''Hush, dear—don't cry!" said the lady. "There may be some mistake. I heard about it from the governor of the prison, and have come to see what i can do for you. I will make in quiries at the War Office, so don't give up all hope until I return." And after warmly kissing the despairing woman, Lady Hester Deverall depart ed. The residence of the Earl of Car morton was but a -few miles from Belhampton, and his daughter had long taken a friendly interest in the prison officials, which accounted for her visit on this occasion. True to her promise, Lady Hester proceeded to London and ...
No More Dancing is Germany SINGING AND REVELRY DISCONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
No Ms re Dasscing is Germany SINGING AND REVELRY DISCONTINUED. This is no time for plays and playing in the enemy empires. "Very signifi cant are tlie numerous appeals made thi'oughout Germany to close down all halls arid other establishments used for dancing and other frivolous amuse ments. Nearly all over the country the military authorities have ordered these places to he shut, and landlords, waiters and the other employes of the halls are holding meetings begging the authorities to reconsider their de cision. They say that dancing is a harmless amusement, and that even in serious times there are men and women who must dance. But the military authori ties are obdurate, and reply that they cannot understand how anyone can take pleasure in dancing when the country is full of indescribable mis eiy of war. But they suggest that the dancing halls, etc., might be put to other profitable uses, such as public lectures on useful topics, also for re citations and musical evenings of a patr...
A DOUBLE VICTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 March 1915
A DOUBLE VICTORY. ] I By Hylda M. Robins. I "I think I ought to go." The words were spoken, with a cer tain amount of diffidence, as if the speaker were feeling his way by de grees to an uncertain object, but, on the other hand, there was nothing uncertain about Milton Fane's strong personality, and the girl to whom the words were addressed realised that fact at once. "What nonsense!" she returned, with a pout of her red lips. "For there are plenty of others to fight, without you. Let the men go who have no claims upon them." He turned towards the window and stood there, looking out on the peace ful scene. In that quiet country spot, with ilie park stretching away to the rippling river, and the blue hills be yond, war and all its horrors seemed very far away. "If everyone said that," he went on, after a short pause, "there would be no navy or army at all, and then where would the women of England and the children be?" Dulcie Vernon: dre^v her finely-pen cilled eyebrows together in a...
