Latest War News. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 9 February 1915
Latest War News. Dense massees of the enemy's in fantry were pulverised by the Rus sian artillery at Belimoff. The Ger mans desperately strove to penetrate the Russian lines, and fierce bayonet and hand-to-hand fights continued until the Russians, who had been re inforced, charged with the bayonet, and not a single German who had entered their trenches survived. The advance of the Turks on Egypt was well planned by the Ger man officers. Their mistake seems to have been in filling the soldiery with false notions about the British pow ers of resistance. The Allies have progressed at Massiges, Beaunejour, Altkirch, and Bagatelle. There has been §harp fighting in the Bethune-La Bassee region. Britain France, apd Russia- have agreed to joint financial action in order - to prosecute the war to final victory. A British aeroplanie flying over Zeebrugge suddenly dived and sank a German submarine by dropping bombs. The airman escaped.

WITH WHICH ARN YNCOItPORATED QUSANBETAN TiMES, BENGENDORE MIRROR AND CAPTAIN'S FLAT MINER TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1915. Current Topics. Ministers Vindicated.-TIe ugly rumours -which were re cently current respecting Mi -isters and members of Parlia ment having been bribed in or der to ensure the passing of the. Wheat Acquisition Bill have. been made the subject of an official inquiry, with the-result that, by the report of .the de tective employed to investigate the matter,' the allegation has been disproved. That officer declares that he is satisfied be yond doubt, that no money had been paid to` any Minister or member of the Legislative As sembly by any person or'per sons in the Coolamon district in' connection with~ the passing of the Act. That is satisfactory as far as it goes. It is bad enough to be saddled with op pressive and spoliatory legis. lation without having at the same time to believe that it has been placed on the statute-book by corrupt practices. Until cer tain sensat...

A Patriotic Sermon. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 9 February 1915
A Patriotic Sermon. Not the least amongst the efforts which have been made to awasen a spirit of patriotism in the breasts of the young men of the Common wealth of Australia have been the appeals from the pulpits of the vari= ous churches. Notably the Bishop of Bathurst has been prominent and outspoken in this direction. Here in. Queanbeyan on Sunday evening last, a sermon was preached which was calculated to stir to their inmost depths the hearts of the congrega tion who were privileged to hear it. The preacher was the Rev. D. C. Hughes. Mr. Hughes has on pre' vious occasions delivered some out spoken addresses from the, various pulpits within his charge on the sub ject of the unparalleled war now raging on the European Continent. But on Sunday night he excelled himself. Taking for his text the fol lowing passage from 2 Samuel, X., 12, "Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God: and the Lord do that which seemeth him good"', he, by wa...

Federal Capital. PROPOSED SEWAGE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 9 February 1915
Federal Capital. PROPOSED SEWAGE SYSTEM. THa Commonwealth Public Works Committee on Tuesday heard evi- t dence on various sewerage systems, with a-view to arriving at a decision as to which would be the best sys tem for installation in the Federal Capital. Joseph Davis, Director-General of Public Works in New South Wales, said that to make use of sewage was a different matter from merely dis posing of sewage in the bestand cheapest way. The method adopted in Birmingham was as nearly perfect as possible. It combined the bio logical with a purification system. To make the biological or septic sys tem effective was eqtirely a matter of cost. The climate of Australia was very good for septic action.- The septic system would be suitable for Canberra. He wanted to point out that the board insisted on the land treatment of sewage after it passed through the tanks and filter, beds. before it was allowed to pass into the sea. By Mr. Storey : There was no nuisance or danger connected with the...
PENTECOST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 9 February 1915
Y E N- T E C 0 S '1. By PASTOR RUSSELL. Text: "When He ascended up on High, He led a multitude of captives" (Epli. iv. 8). It is appropriate, began the Pastor, that on the anniversary of Pentecost we should 'have well in mind what we celebrate. It was preceded by the anniversary of our Lord's ascension. In one sense of the word, our Lord Jesus ascended at His re surrection from the dead; for then He left the '.-run:an- nature and the tomb for the Divine nature and immortality. He tar tied, however, for forty days after His re surrection. that He might establish and in atrurt His Apostles. . THE O'EtTECOSTAL BLESSLNOS, After the forty days, during which He ' as invisibly present with His deciples ex cept on the occasions when He manifested Himself for a few moments, our Lord as cended to Heaven. Ten days afterwards, the Holy Spirit came upon the waiting .IIeo~chold of Faith. The outpouring of lhe Spirit evidenced to them that they were jostilicil freely from all things through t! e m...

Presentations to Ald. H. T. Land. ON Friday night at the Royal Hotel the Mayor, Aldermen, and Council's officers assembled for the purpose of making a presentation to Alderman Land on the occasion of his approach ing marriage.

He would like to see others follow his example, and mentioned that he had gone to school with Alderman Land's grandmother. The toast of "The King" having deen honored, The Mayor called upon Alderman Woodward (Mayor-elect) to pro...
Garden and Field Calendar for February, (B A. Lansdowne, Goulburn). [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 9 February 1915
Garden and Field Calendar for February, (B A. Lanadowna, Goulburu). The weather has been ias we fore casted. ..The` present. spell of heat a'bit trying foi some crops, "out just'the thing for tomatoes, etc., and wvill also give color and flavoi to fruit. " Keeping the surface loose and. clean is the chief factor.. in successful growth during hot, ary I weather. In orchards, especially, on no account should crops of weedls be allowed. They rob the trees, and, if not ploughed hi, the soil also. Apply water, to the roots, not over the surface. Three-fourths of the water used is only waste. Fodder is certain to be dear during winter, and the giower who has good sup plies will be on the safe side. All available lind should' be cropped, or prepared for cropping. A repetition of January :weather is likely-mon soonal ` rains, thunderstorms, and squalls, with intervening cold snaps and sea-breoze.' Be sure that all drains, roofs etc., are in . order.

The Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 February 1915
SThe Markets. Harrison Jones & Devlin, Limited offered at auction on Wednesday 10th. instant, a 6atalogue of 1453 bales, which . included several good to superior clips and a few lots of good station scoured. The action of the Commonwealth Government. stopping the shipment of wool to America at the close of last week has debarred some of the strongest supporters of the market from operating, and as a result wools suitable for the United States have suffered.. On the whole, how ever, competition has been sustained with remarkable vigor and. while values -have suffered to a small extent the level is still attractive, At auction and privately we sold 1727. bales. At the wool sales on Monday and Tuesday American buyers did not compete. Cross breds were a shade dearer. Sales included: JFM, Queanbeyan, 11 AA w at 121d, 20 A w at lid; Gordon, JRF, Werriwa, Bungen dore, 17 AA at 11?d, 6 AA at 101d, 14 A at 10d, 9 A eat lid; PRB, Bungendore, 9 w at 104d, 8 e 10id.

AINSLIE v. HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 February 1915
AINSLIS v. HALL. When these teams met in the first round on the Ainslie wicket it was remarkable for the manner in which Hall failed to score. The highest scorer on their aide was G. Southwell with 5, the total number of runs hit off the bat for the side was 17. On Saturday last Hall were fully deter. mined that such a downfall would not occur again and in the hopes of getting a " bit of their own back" they awaited the arrival of Ainslie with a very strong team. Knowing this Ainslie brought their strongest team with them and the large number of spect. ators looked and hoped for big things. Nor were they disappointed as the match proved to be something above the- average and splendid play was witnessed with both bat and ball. 'though the fielding on both sides was at times not up to the usual stan. dard each eleven are to be complimented on their play. As was expected by both clubs the game was a draw. which just goes to prove how really absurd it is to expect two good teams when th...
