FIGHT HARD! [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

FIGHT HARD! By Henry Lawsou. "The Australians are lighting hard In Gallipoli."—Cable. Rolling out to fight for England, sing ing songs across the sea; Rolling north to fight for England, and to fight for you and me. Fighting hard for France and England, where the storms of death are hurled: Fighting hard for Australasia and the honor of the world! Fighting hard. Fighting hard for Sunny Queensland —fighting for Danatialand, Fighting hard for West Australia, and the mulga and the sand; Fighting hard for plain and wool track, and the haze of western heat— Fighting hard for South Australia and the bronze of Farrar's wheat! Fighting hard. Fighting hard for fair Victoria, and the mountain and the glen (And the memory of Eureka — there were other tyrants then); For the glorious lUppsland forests and the world's great singing star— For the irrigation channels, where the cabbage gardens are— Fighting hard. Fighting hard for gale and earth quake, and the wlud-swept ports between; For the wild...

with which is incorporated the Boort Standard, KorongValc Lance, and Quam batook Herald. Interesting readi^^r matter will be found on our sixth page. I Thursday, September 1G. Universal Service. The Prime Minister, in a phrase which every Australian endorses, has declared that Australia would send her last uian and spend her last shilling in the defence of the Empire. This extreme necessity has not yet arisen. But we cannot shut our eyes to the fact that the situitionis one of grave anxiety. The existence of the British Empire and all that it stands for, to its own citizens and the world at large, is in danger. If the Empire should fall, the rights and liberties which, .to a a British community, are as neces sary and natural as the air they breathe, will fall with it. There is not a man, woman or child in the Empire whose interests are not directly at stake. Australia has done much. But she has not done enough. Nothing is enough, short of her utmost. Her efforts are still far short ...

IS THE RIFLE PLAYED OUT? HOW GERMANY IS USING THE MACHINE GUN. Rotterdam. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

IS THE RIFLE PLAYED OUT ? HOW GERMANY IS USING THE MACHINE GUN. By James Dunn. Rotterdam. In this war of surprises nothing is certain except the uncertainty of all tilings offensive and defensive. Mili tary science develops so rapidly in modern warfare that nothing is so un stable as fixed ideas and nothing so unreliable as tradition. So far the Germans have been our masters in the art of making to-day the weapons of to-morrow. Instead of seeking to adapt new circumstances to old theories they change their theories to meet tho circumstances, and that is 0110 of the chief reasons tlioy are ablo to put up such a stub horn nght against a world In arms. Nov.- one of t' e pet theories of profes sors of the great Gorman military school is that In tho warfare of to-day tho rifle is doomed. They arguo that Just as surely as the muzzlo-loading gun was replaced by the breech-loader so will the automatic rifle be replaced by tho machine gun, and what tho pro fessors havo foreseen military tact...

143 MILES AN HOUR. The Fastest Thing on Earth. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

143 MILES AN HOUR. The Fastest Thing on Earth. The highest speed ever travelled by >1 man on the. (ace of the earth—nearly 143 miles an hour—was recently made by a racing motor car on the great ex panses of level salt deposits in Utah, says a writer in the "Hallway Axe t'.azette." This bed of salt is on the ilne of the Western Pacific, at Sal duro, Utah, 112 miles west of Salt Lake Cltv. The motor-run was made by Teddy Teizlaff, and the best time for one mile was 25.2 seconds, which is equal to 142.S3 miles an hour, a trifle better than the best preceding record, whicli was made on the beach at Davtona in April, 1911. This is the highest speed ever travelled by man on the face of the earth. The best speed ever made by a ve hicle running on rails was that record ?d in the Berlin-Zossen tests of elec :ric cars, in 1903, when a rate of 130.5 niles an hour was made on October !7. The crystallised salt in thia .Utah ■>ed makes a hard and absolutely level surface, and it is said tha...

By the time the procession reached St. Paul's the rain was com ing straight down, and everyone must have been drenched to the skin. Then as me service began the rain ceased quite suddenly and sunshine followed The scene 0:1 the steps of St. Paul's was singularly impressive.

Ladies' Column. Fanciful Fashion. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

Ladies' Column. Fanciful Fashion. (By Rosaland). With all due apologies to the I author of the well-known verses, one must agree with Dame Fashion when she says— " Wars may come and wars may go. But 1 go on for ever." for in spite of the stress and bitter ness of the times one must be clothed, and so Dame Fashion— hustled and jostled though she has been during the past dreary months of heart wearing anxiety—cannot be altogether forgotten. She is a wraith possessed of world famed originality and imagination, whose kaleidoscopic moods have never failed to draw exclamations of amazement from a wondering world, so we may rest assured that she will evolve fashion in accord ance with the spirit of the times. The password for this season is —Simplicity—and our attention is constantly being attracted by the unobtrusive simplicity of the pre vailing modes. They are just simple ideas cunningly conceived and created into charming models. Cotton fabrics, expressed in all manners of delicate _an...

SUNDAY READING. An Unsurrendered Sword. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

SUNDAY READING. (Conducted by the Rev. E. Eldridge, Boort.) An Unsurrendered Sword. The latest issue of the " British Weekly" contains a resume of a fine discourse by Rev. Dr Jowett on the above subjcct. The text was chosen from Romnns vi., 13—' Yield yourselves I unto God, . • . and your members I as instruments of righteousness unto God." Dr Jowett refers to Nelson's request- " Your sword first " to an enemy officer who had been taken pri soner, and then goes on to say, " Sur render before communion ; homage before familiarity ; the relinquishing of the last symbol of hostility before there can be the free courtesies of friendship." And that too is the law of the spirit of Christ Jesus. The con dition of a full communion with the Lord is absolute surrender. So long as we retain a sword the fellowship is broken. We may seek the gifts of grace, and the consolation of the pro mises, and the encompassing care of ' Providence, but if we hold to our sword, the search it in vain. "Your s...
