CITIZEN SOLDIERS AMERICAN PROPOSAL Lindley M. Garrison, Secretary of War, in his, annual report made public ' to-day (says the "Christian Science Monitor," December 11) declares him self to be in favor of a national - mili tary. policy whereby every man in. the united States would have enough mili taiy tiaining to make him a reason ably good soldier in time of need. He stands for the establishment of a mili tary reserve force of men in all walks ot lite. His purpose is not to invite war, but to prevent it, he says. Another feature of his report is his stated belief that the present method ot promotion in the army does not pro duce maximum efficiency.

INDIA AND CEYLON ADAM'S BRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

' , " OH all the bridges ' of the-: world Adam's Bridge, between India and Cey lon, " wliich is not a bridge at all—and never has been—is the most famous; and now the strait is really going to be spanned—not yet, but some day soon. And meanwhile the ends of the steel rails will dip down within sight of, each other,, and ferry boats will plough backwards and forwards, and the misery and.sea-sickness of the long sea journey between Colombo and Tuti corin will be a thing of the past. On February 24 the two «nds will be for mally opened by the Governors of Madras and Ceylon. Except in the very centre of the strait, where the larger coasting ships can—but very rarely do—go, there are no great engineering difficulties. The piers move on from stepping-stone to stepping-stone, small seaweed-grown throws of dark rocks for the most part, clear—but only just clear—of the high est tide. But it would make little di...

EARLY LONDON MOTORS STEAM-DRIVEN 'BUSES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

EARLY LONDON MOTORS STEAM-DRIVEN 'BUSES The motor (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 15) has Invaded many fields in triumph, but there ia one extensive territory which so far it has failed to occupy. The horse still trots merrily between the shaftB of the tradesman's light van. Mr D. T. Smith, who, in a paper be fore the Association of Engineera-in Charge, at the St. Bride Instltutei Fleet street, on "Commercial Motor Vehicles/' last night, considered the position with regard to those, stated there was at present no vehicle of which he wels aware that was a satisfactory substi tute for the tradesman's light van. "When it was discovered, he added, its sales would be phenomenal. It was useless to offer the average tradesman who ran a horse and van a motor ve hicle at £350,- to carry an equal load— he could riot, in most cases, afford the money. For other reasons, it was not satisfactory to offer him a chassis," which was really designed for private work. On the development of the...

ONE TOUCH OF NATURE [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914

ONE TOUCH OF NATURE A small boy about five years old, clinging to the hand of a burly police man and crying now and then, "I want my mummy," ;excited, a good deal of sympathy in the crowded main street of a south London suburb (says "The Daily Mail.") " 'E's lost, or somethink, pore kid," said a hawker, giving the urchin a con solation banana, which the policeman, observing it with ■ surprise a moment later, transferred to his own pocket. A woman who confided to the banana sel ler that she had four children of her own, bought a dozen bananas she did not want-as a mark of her approval of the hawker's kindly action. A city clerk out shopping with his wife and boy seized the opportunity to point out to his offspring what happened to naughty boys; and a mother, more en lightened, told her little girl what good friends the policemen were to little boys and girls who got lost. v .'~i A street-corner orator saw the couple pass the fringe of fiis audience and im mediately began a parable of...
