Railway Requests. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 September 1915

Railway Requests. The Railway Commissioners will visit Boort to-morrow,and it is to be hoped the deputation that will wait upon them will be able .to get definite replies to the requests asked for instead of the usual depart mental evasive answers. The im portance of the town and district demand? it. The first item on the programme will be our train ser vice. Members of the deputation must not be side-tracked with points that are irrelevant to the case at issue. Is the line a paying line ? Has it paid handsomely for many years? Do the returns show it to be one of the best paying lines in the State ? Does Boort station after paying wages, &c., return a profit of ,£5000 ? Of course, the answers to these questions must be an swered in the affirmative. Very well then, the question naturally arises are we being treated pro perly or even fairly in cutting two trains ofTa week each way ? If the revenue of such stations as Borung, Mysia, Barraport, sc., are added to Boort as a distr...

UNLIKE ANY OTHER WAR. IMMENSE FACTS AND FIGURES. By Sydney Brooks. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 September 1915

UNLIKE ANY OTHER WAR. IMMENSE FACTS AND FIGURES. By Sydney Brooks. People talk of tliis struggle as "th* greatest of all wars" and "unlike any other war." Tlioy are perfectly right. I wondor, indeed, whether they alto gether realise how right they are. Twelve nations are already in the arena. Three others are visibly pre paring to enter it; a fourth, across the Atlantic, may not impossibly be likewise drawn in; of 110 European country, unless, perhaps, it be Spain, can one predicate an absolute and permanent neutrality; while at the other ends of the earth China and the great Republics of South America alone seem secure in their present im munity. There is no need, however, for speculation. The war is big enough as it is. The Dardanelles war alone is the biggest Great Britain has ever engaged in apart from the war in Flanders and the South African War. Fully half the entire population of the world and all but three-flfihs of its total land surface are at this mo- i ment to be classe...

They revel In your butter dish and riot in your ham, Drill upon the army cheoso and loot tho army kam. They're with you in the dusk and the dawning and the noon, They come in close formation, in col umn and platoon. There's never zest like Tommy's zest when these have got to die. For Tommy takes his puttees off and swats tho blooming fly. "Somo are afraid of one thing aud some are afraid of another," said Ston er, perching himself on tho banquette and looking through the periscope at the enemy's lines. "For myself, I don't like shells, especially when in the open, even if they are bursting half a milo away." "Is that what you fear most?" I asked. "No, the rifle bullet is tho thing I dread; tho saucy little beggar is al ways on the go." "What do you fear most, Goliath?" 1 asked the massive soldier, who was cleaning his bayonet with a strip...

Exporting the Harvest. Commonwealth to Control. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 September 1915

Exporting the Harvest. Commonwealth to Control. The Wheat Freightage Bill has been passed by the House of Representatives The object of the measure is to authorise n loan of .SlOit.OOO from the Commonwealth Hank to enable the. Federal Ministry to carry out the ar rangement made with the States to secure freight for the coming wheat harvest. The arrangement involved the complete control of all freights by the Commonwealth during the next wheat season. The season would open about October IS. and it was proposed to declare the probable rate o f freights for November at about that date, so 1 that fanners and shippers uiitiht know the conditions which would regulate the trade It was probable that the money now asked for would not be used, but it was desirable that the authority should be (liven to raise it. in case the necessity should arise. Mr Hughes stated that the farmers would get the benefit of the :vj per cent, charterer's commission. Whether it was returned to the States and dis ...

"MAKE FOR PORT." WIRELESS THAT SWEPT SEA OF GERMANS. Interesting revelations ol how Ger many before the war tried to get com mand of the wireless telegraphy of the world were made by Mr. Godfrey Isaacs at the annual meeting of Mar coni's Wireless Telegraph Company last week in London. The points of Mr. Isaacs' speech were.— Mr. Marconi's patents were imitated in Germany and a large company was created by the German Government. This company created powerful agencies all over the world and their opposition to the Marconi companies was assisted by the German Ambassa dors. Eventually the Marconi Company appealed to Sir Edward Grey and thereafter they had the support of British Ministers abroad. When the Imperial wireless chain was proposed Germany Immediately started to build a chain of wireless stations in her Colonies. England declared war on Germany at midnight on August 4.

CAPTIVE BALLOONS AT I WORK. I BISCUITS FOR THE BOCHES. BAGGING A SNIPER. London, August 6. "We call him Lyddite Jack. He's a major in the gunners. Nobody seems to know what his name is, and nobody seems to care. He's just Lyddite Jack to us all, both officers and men." There were seven of us in a railway carriage coming from Cardiff to Pad dington. Four were old soldiers, who had been in France since August last year, and two were youngsters who had not yet gone out. It was a ser geant who drew the picture of Lyddite Jack. "They say he's 'touched'," said the sergeant, "but 1 am not sure. If he's 'touched,' then he's touched in the right spot. All he loves are his guns and his shells, and his men, and nil he hates are the German guns and men "He talks to his guns and shells, and pats thcni and strokes them just as if they were some favorite spaniel of his about to hunt a hedgerow. "He never misses. 1 remember one dar't night there was a flash, and later the sound of a shell being fix...

Ladies' Column. Useful Designs for Girls. (Continued from Last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 September 1915

Ladies' Column. Useful Designs for Girls. (Continued from Last Issue.) (By Rosaland). Figure 2 shows a sweet little coat and skirt costume for school wear for a girl of from 10 to 1*1 years old. There again the lines are plain and simple, and yet again are full of chnrm and grace. The striped trimmings on the cuffs, col lar and belt front are quite a dis tinctive note. This costume would be ideal in either tussore silk or coating serge. A very serviceable material, too, is Sicilian, which can be had in pleasing shades. The front of the coal, as will be seen from the sketch, is cut somewhat on military lines, which effect is heightened by the high backed Figure 2. military collar. The neck opening may be either in a V shape, as shown, or in a square cut finish if preferred. The belt is attached to the back of the coat and fastened in the front with two buttons. The skirt is quite plain, with the excep tion of a lew gathers at the back. It is an undeniable fact that stripes are making...
