THE FAN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
THE FAN. By Horace Winslow. As the usher waved him toward the front of the grandstand the double oddity of his plight hit him with a sort of comic force. For a quick quarter-second he wanted to throw back his head and laugh. • Here he was, he—Harbison "Per- • centage" Harbison they nicknamed him at the office, coming to the ball park without any wish to see or any idea of seeing the game. Just to start with that was strange enough; but there was more. Here he was Harbison—the "Original Urtz Fan, according to "Baldy" Scott, carry ing a revolver in his pocket and mur der in his heart for the man who had lately been his idol. The bullet and the hate both for Urtz. He was go ing to kill Urtz before the game be gan. That was why he had come: just to kill Urtz. One empty seat after another Har bison tried, squinting each time at | the diamond below. When at last he scraped his feet into comfort ahead of him he was in the front row, his head within five yards of the home team's bench. Lean...

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY. Views on the Great War. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY. Views on the Great War. In every quarter of the globe, in every continent of the world, we hear at this moment the steady tramp of our men proceeding from our . Domin ions to the support of the meteor-flag of Great Britain, and in support of all the principles which are dear to the British Empire—liberty, honor, and public faith.—Lord Rosebery. Sooner than go under the heel of the Kaiser, I would rather see every British man and woman blotted out. This is a fight to a finish, and the Kaiser has got to be finished. The best and quickest way to finish him is to send more and more and still more men to the front.—Will Crooks, M.P. I have every reason to know that throughout the course of the battle we have placed at least three times as many of the enemy hors de com bat in dead, wounded and prisoners. —Sir John French. Every Russian wants to free Con stantinople from the Turk. . . . Moat want it because they have been taught that Christ is dishonored by the worshi...
THE DUKE'S TOAD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
THE DUKE'S TOAD. There is a story told of the Iron Duke which shows that he was one of whom the poet Coleridge's words were true: "He prayeth best who loveth best all things both great and small." One day the old Duke (for he was then a very old man) was walking in his garden at Walmer Castle, when he heard sounds of sobbing on the other side of the hedge. Going to see who was in trouble, the Duke found a small boy sitting by the hedge, and crying as if his heart would break. On being asked what was the mat ter, the boy said that he was going away to school the next day, and he was crying because he was sure that his pet toad, who lived in the hedge, and whom he came every day to see and feed, would die while he was away, for there was no one who would look after it. "Never mind, my boy," said the Duke, "I will look after the toad, and tell you how he goes on." So, much comforted, the boy went away to school, and regularly every week came a letter:— "Field-Marshal the Duke of Wel li...
Zeppelin's Real Inventor. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
Zeppelin's Real Inventor. "The real inventor of the Zeppelin was a Jew named David Schwarz," says the "Jewish World." "This man planned and invented the first rigid airship in 1892, and tried to bring it to the notice of the various Govern ments, but only the German General Staff would look at it. On January 13, 1897, the German War Office sent Schwarz a telegram, asking him to go to Berlin with his model for a trial flight. The telegram reached Schwarz in the street, and he was so overcome with joy that he fell dead on the spot. "Notwithstanding, the trial flight was made on Schwarz's vessel, and among the spectators was Count Zep pelin, who adopted the idea and im proved it and brought it to its present 'comfortable' perfection."

— © AUTUMN SHOW. A larger r^~°nre of snccesa than was anticipate' ~j people attended the Linton Horticultural Society's Autumn Show on Wednesday and Thursday even ings at the Parish Hall. The extremely dry season certainly affected the display of flowers, fruit and vegetables, but on the whole the show justified itself, and was well worth'visiting. The f!/ i>! ex hibits,.skillfully arranged by the manager (Mr R.' Cornish) made a very beautiful spectacle, whilst the fruit and vegetables were generally of fine quality. Pot plants, ferns, etc., were much admired, and the various floral designs showed a high degree of skill and taste. Mr S.

Cornish was the best exhibitor of roses, and other prominent exhibitors were Mesdames R. Ching, W. D. Nicholls, W. Todd, F. O'Beirne, W. Bourchier, Mi...
Carngham Turf Club. SUCCESSFUL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
SUCCESSFUL MEETING, Fine weather favored the Carngham Turf Club, which held its annual meeting on Easter Monday. A varied programme of seven events was arranged, and though the fields were small on the whole, the racing was the best seen on the course for many years. Visitors were present from all parts of the district, Ballarat being represented. The publican's booth was run by Mrs Coulson, and the refreshment booth by Mr Geo. Hall. The racing track was in splendid order, sanding and harrowing being resorted to as the best available substitutes for rain. The going was a trifle heavy. Since the previous meeting the club has shown confidence in its possibilities for the future by expending the sum of £50 on improving the appointments of the course, in addition to constructing a ! furlong and a half of new railing. The ad ditions include a judge's box and a jockeys' room. A feature of the meeting wa3 the in teresting nature of the finishes, which was a tribute to the handicapping of M...

The Rush of the Russians. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
The Rush of the Russians. Tne Kussians are contronted toy a very difficult task," says "World's Work," "because the frontiers of Eastern Germany and Austrian Gali cia open over Poland like a lion's jaw, and both, frontiers—especially the German—are tremendously fortified. An advance from Western Poland, therefore, presents many obstacles; first, on account of the exposure of both the Russian flanks to attacks by Germans from the north and by Aus trians from the south; second, be cause three railways lead from East ern Prussia directly to the Russian rears; and, third, because of the dearth of railways with which to supply troops massed in Western Poland. "If. the Russians have a sufficient number of men they can readily over come the first two of these obstacles by masking all the enemy's fortifica tions—that is, by leaving a sufficient force in front of each one to bottle up the garrisons. Once across the Ger man frontier at any point between Graudenz and Breslau they can push on t...

FROM THE FIRING LINE. The Badge of Brotherhood. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
FROM THE FIRING LINE. The Badae of Brotherhood. Mr. Will Crooks,. the Labor M.P. for Woolwich, in a delightfully hu morous recruiting speech, exactly hit off the situation to the great delight of his audience when dealing with the breaking down of class barriers. "Everyone is in this war," said Mr. Crooks—"the man in the field, the factory, on the railway, in the mine, and the Johnny from Rotten Row. They are all there. Algy—who said to me, 'Anybody can tell you have not been pwoperly twained. You dwop your h's,' and to whom I retorted, 'Well, that's nothing; you drop your r's'—is now in the trenches, fighting, giving of his best, side 'by side with many a pal of ours. "To a Bethnal Green man alongside him, Algy said, 'You know, Tom, I have been to the East-end myself. Oh, yes. I went there and bought a bull pup. I gave £3 for it, and when I got home I found it was not worth 3s.' "'Oh, give us a fag.' Algy handed him a cigarette. 'Give us a match.' Algy handed him the match. 'Algy, ...

SUNSET AND DAWN CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
SUNSET AND DAWN I I By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. ^Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXI. As they drove away.from the crowd of laughing people and waving hand kerchiefs, out into the busy London streets where another crowd waited to have a last glimpse of the bride, Margaret awoke with a thrill of phys ical fear to the fact that she was ab solutely alone with this man for prac tically the first time. All through their engagement Petkoff had • treat ed lier with extraordinary ceremony, and, aided in the most clever way by Lady Aiicia. Margaret had never been permitted to be left by herself with the man whom-she had promised to marry. A strange exaltation had strung up the girl to go through the ordeal of leave-taking. That brief interview with her mother, that moment of awakened affection and sympathy, had been so wonderful that the girl had derived real strength and cour age from it. The memory of it was , w...
COMPOSITE AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
COMPOSITE AMERICA. America claims to be the most cos mopolitan nation on the globe, and the soundness of this postulate is at tested by an extremely interesting ar ticle entitled "New Americans," by Walter E. Weyl:— "For a century a swelling human stream has poured across the ocean, fleeing from poverty in Europe to a chance in America. Englishman, Welshman, Scotchman, Irishman; German, Swede, Norwegian, Dane; Jew, Italian, Bohemian, Serb; Syrian, Hungarian, Pole, Greek—one race after another has knocked at our doors, been given admittance, has married us and begot our children. We could not have told by looking at them whether they were to be good or bad progenitors, for racially the cabin is not above the steerage, and dirt, like poverty and ignorance, is but skin-deep. A few hours and the stain of travel has left the immi grant's cheek; a few years, and he loses the odor of alien soils; a gen eration or two, and these outlanders are irrevocably our race, our nation, our stock. "T...
What the Jury Deserved. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
What the Jury Deserved. Sir Matthew Begbie, Chief Justice of British Columbia, once had before him a man charged with having kill ed another man -with a sandbag. The evidence was conclusive, and the judge charged the jury accordingly, but a verdict of "Not guilty" was promptly \brought in. The judge was astonished. "Gentlemen of the jury," he said, "this -is your verdict, not mine. On your conscience the disgrace will rest. Many repetitions of such con duct as yours will make trial by jury a horrible farce, and-the city of Vic toria a nest of crime. Go! I have nothing more to say to you." And then, turning to the prisoner: "You are discharged. Go and sandbag some of those jurymen; they deserve it." The Only man 'braver than the hero who fears not ridicule is he who fears it and yet faces it in a good cause.
CHAPTER XXII. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
CHAPTER XXII. The house to which Prince Petkoff .was isiMng his bride was one which had seen a good many Bohemian I gatherings since it had passed tem porarily into the hands of the present owner. More than once during the season the man had wearied of so ciety and its demands; but solitude had little attraction for him, and he was always welcome in that world which lies just outside society, where his money paved the way for him easily and unceremoniously. Another man might well have hesi tated before taking his wife on their wedding day to a house which was full of Bo'a-mian memories; but Pet koff was a law to himself. Just before they had started on their journey a messenger had come to Sir John Torrington's house with a little note from the firm of solici tors who acted for the Prince in Eng land; and in whose hands, in fact, all the legal matters in connection with the marriage had been left entirely. In this letter Prince PetkofE was ask ed most urgently to state where he was ...
A WONDERFUL ANAESTHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915
A WONDERFUL ANAESTHETIC. For surgical operations in the im mediately vicinity of the battlefield, recourse was had to stovain, the an aesthetic recently discovered by Dr. Jonesco, of Bucharest, a brother of the famous Roumanian statesman. The mode of use of this anaesthetic consists of a spinal injection, which, while rendering the patient temporar ily insensible to any pain in any part of the body, does not deprive him of his consciousness, but permits of his watching the operation as it is being performed. Dr. Jonesco, not long ago, demonstrated with his anaesthe tic in several British military hospi tals and at St. George's. English sur geons, however, are inclined to dread the after-effects of stovain, which, they allege, tenders to produce paraly sis at a later period of life.
