THE WAR AND FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
THE WAR AND FINANCE. Iu a sense we shall benefit directly oy the war now ravaging central Eur ope, but directly, also, we are suffering A double blow is struck at our stability by the War and the Drought, and it is only fair to say that had it not been for the dry, season just passed Aus tralia would have overridden iu a great measure the difficulties due to the war. Iu spite of both, however, we have little cause to fear any disturbance of our foundations. Our Southern Lands wore not built on destruction and robbery. No ono is the poorer for our possessing Australia, consequently we have little to fear from conscientious scruples. At the same time, there is a powerful, enemy at our gates, whose conscicnce 1 is conspicuous by its absence. We are in grave danger. Nor are we singular in this respect, for Canada, South Africa and New Zealand are in the same clangor zone. Although it is sometimes asserted that finance has comparatively little to do with aggres sive warfare, it has to bo...

THE MAN WHO WAITED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
THE MAN WHO WAITED. The late "Ian McLaren" (Dr Jolt:: Watson) once told this story on himself to some friends: I was coining ove ron the steamer to America, when one day I went into the library to do some literary work. I was busy, an dlooked so, I suppose. I had no sooner strted to write than a diffident looking man plumped into the. chair in front of me, began twirling his cap and stared at me. I let him sit there. An hour or more passed, and he was still there, returning ray occasional and discouraging glances at him with a foolish ingratiating smile". I was inclined to be annoyed. I had a suspicion that he was a reader of my books, perhaps an admirer-or an auto graph hunter. He could wait. But at last he rose, and still twirling hi:-, cap, he spoke: "Excuse me, Doctor Watson; I an; g'iting deathly sick in here, rfnd'Pin really sorry to disturb you, but I thought you'd like to know that ju:-L as soon as you left her, Airs Watson fi ll down the companionvi'ay stairs, and i guess s...
TRADE OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
TRADE OPINIONS. Probably the principal advantage the British Empire will reap from the pre! sent war is tlie tradomw being divert-j ed from the enemies' sources to Bri-j tisli, including the oversea possessions.^ The occasion is one that has brought out much information relative to> the possibilities of production already in the hands oi' our own people. Enquiries have elicited some very satisfactory answers, and the result will be, in the immediate future, a rapid rise of com mercial and productive trade. It may not be generally known, but there ha3 been established in England a trade and industry committee, whose duty it is to discover the wants of the British and Colonial markets for almost every article of use. The needs being found out, the question is then set abroad: What can you pro/luce? The result is an immediate arrangement whereby material assistance is given to the en couragement of trade and commerce, in dependent of outsiders. it might b-p-' naturally thought that ...
MR BEECHER AND THE LOWER ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
MB BEECHER AND THE LOWER . ANIMAL. * Henry AVard Jtieecher v.-as upon on;: occasion in the in:dst of an eloquent political speech when some wag in the audience crowed like a cock. It was done to perfection and the audience was in a gale of laughter. Even the great orator's freinds felt uneasy at his reception of the interruption. But Mr Beecher stood perfectly calm. He stopped speaking till the crowing ceased, and while the audience iva-s still laughing, he pulled out his watch. Then he said "That's strange. My i watch says it is only 10 o'clock. But i there can't be any mistake about it. It must lie morning, for the- instincts: | of thr lower animals are absolutely in | fallible.
A BROTHER IN TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
A BROTHER IN TKOUBLE. Dwight L. Moody was one day riding in a car when it was hailed by a man much the worse for liquor, who pre sently staggered along the car between two rows of well-dressed people, re gardless of tender feet. Murmurs and complaints arose on u!i sides and demands were heard that tho offender should be ejected at once. But amid the storm of abuse one friendly voice was raised. Mr Mocciy rose from his feet saying: "No, 110, friends! Let the man ii' down and be quiet." The drunken one turned, and, seizn: L the famous evangelist by the hand, ex claimed : "Thank ye, sir-thank ye! I see you know what it is to be drunk."

DON'T NEGLECT A common case of Piles. It may lead to serious results. When people generally understand that all such fatal diseases as Fistula, Ulcer cf the Hectum, Fissure, etc., almost invariably begin in a simple case cf Piles, they will learn the wisdom of taking prompt treatment for the first appearance of this trouble. Dean's Ointment is unequalled for every form of Piles, Itching, Bleeding, Protruding, and Blind Piles, and hun dreds of lives have been saved by uiii-G this cheap, but effective remedy right from the start, because at such times a single pot has often effected a cure, while in the old, fieep-seated, chronic cases, several' pots are some times necessary. Here is a case: Mrs. H. S. Wilson, Broome-crescent, Wonthaggi, say's:-"My husband suf fered with Protruding Piles for some time. He was tortured with this ail ment, and only those who have suf fered with Piles .know what terrible torture it is. His rest was broken at nijrlit, and lie found it hard to keep at work...

THE DAUGHTER'S PART. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
THE DAUGHTER'S PART. One of the sweetest'things a girl can do is to receive friends graciously, par ticularly at home. In one's own house a cordial manner is fitting. Do not stand oil in the middle of the room and bow coldly and formally to the friend who has called. Walk over to meet her; give her your hand, and say pleasantly, that you are very glad to see her again. Stiff, cold, and formal ways of greeting acquantances are not proper. 3 A daughter's part is to assist her mother on every social occasion. The girl pours the tea in her mother's draw ing room when friends drop in at four o'clock. Quite often, when no maid is present, she helps the guests to what ever is served at four o'clock tea, anil herself hands the* cups, and takes them from the guests. Apart from, and more important even thaii her manner to a guest who looks in for an hour on a day, is the manner of a daughter to her father and mother. The father returns to his home, after a wearying day at business. He is tire...
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
? 1. Cultivate and perfect yaur ideas. Experiment. The world is oager for something new, which, however simple it may be, will save labor, or expense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure-reduce waste. : People who handle things in every day. uss are the natural inventors of better filings, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Read the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn !he procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious mend has produced a clever invention put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. "Mr / F. Townsend, an editor, says of the "Inventors' Guidej" "I am re commending it strongly to friends. Best of the kind I i-ave Been. It should ?do a lot of good. It is an incentive telling him where he can obtain the "In ventors' Guide." 3. For yourself obtain this book, which tells what to invent, whore t...
THE CARE OF THE HAIR. A GIRL'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
THE CARE OF THE HAIR. GIRL'S ADVICE. At one time I used to neglect my hair most shamefully: It was thin and straggly, and kept coming out in hand fuls nearly all the year round. Then it had that dull, greasy appearance which is so fatal to hair beauty, and which conveys an impression of uu cleanliness which is not undeserved on the whole. For perfect cleanliness "ij essential in every way to the health of the hair, as the hair specialist, whom I consult ed in sheer desperation, told me. When you neglect to brush your hair properly, and allow the pores of the sealp to get choked up with dandruff aud dirt, you are not keeping either the sealp or the hair as clean as you should. I will give you some of the hints the hair specialist gave me. Needless to say, I havo persevered in following the regime he laid down, or else my hair would not be in its present heal thv state. "IMPORTANCE OF BRUSHING. "Don't be afraid of brushing the hair," he told me. "Brush it at least for eight minutes mo...

! HOW TOMMY ATKINS MADE TEA I IN A BOULOGNE TRAM. "A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE" WHICH NEARLY LED T.0 A MASSACRE. Ncbody sings the English transla tion of the iVlatseillaise-or what he happens to know of it-with 1110:0 thoroughness or energy than Tommy Atkins; and nobody thinks more of the French nation-hi the, hulk. But there must he .many Frenchmen on the other side of the Channe to whom the English Tommy is a terrible, mystery. They like him; but they must be look ing at him with wonder, and snak ing their heads. This letter will tell the rest of the story. It came to. the "Daily Sketch" office recently, written on a long sheet of foolscap, in copying ink pencil, by a soldier who was invalided back. Boulonge, 10 p.m., Saturday. We have just finished -having supper in a tram. .... I wanted so/no' broad, but couldn't make the fellow understand, till my pal told me to put my. fingers in my month and say "J;w pan" (du pain).

"THE QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAINS." [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
'THE QUEEN OF THE MOUN TAINS." Much interest attaches to Miss Edith Durham's new book, "The Struggle for .Scutari," which is thus noticed in the l^ueen: Though the public attention is now Jixed on larger issues than the troubles of tho Balkans, Miss Durham's vivid and interesting book is pretty sure of a cordial reception, for, after all,' tho state of affairs in tho Near East is very intimate]}" connected with the ul timate relations of the greater nations. Germany 's dream of a mid-European Empire stretching from sea to sea is ; based in part on the theory that the most important- Balkan States are to be pressed into her sphere of influence, while Turkey is to be a sort of German annexe. Moreover, tho struggle for Scutari is so recent that it might also be considered a part of the general European conflagration, and possibly future historians will regard it as the beginning of the great war. Miss Durham's book will be of con siderable value to the historian of the future, because ...

REPULSE OF THE PRUSSIAN GUARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
REPULSE OF THE PRUSSIAN GUARDS. A French correspondent, describing the British repulse ot' the Prussian Guard at Zonnebeke, near Ypres, last month, says: The English stall were diuing when a despatch bearer an nounced the approach of strong columns of the enemy with cavalry acting as a screen and supported by ten batteries of" artillery and two heavy guns. The English general succeeded in seizing a strategic point on' the railway before the enemy and opened fire with his bat teries. The Prussians continued to ad vance, the first rank firing lying down, the second kneeling, and the remainder standing. Suddenly their ranks opened and machine-guns appeared. The situa tion looked critical, but the English general ordered a bayonet charge. One colonel headed his regiment shouting, "For Honour and England! " The op posing ranks met with a terrible shock. The bayonets of the Allies and the en emy frequently went home at the same moment. The ground and the uniforms and- faces of the combata...
