Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 16 December 1914

Obituary. The death of Mr. George Payne, briefly referred to in our last issue, which occurred at his late residence on Saturday morning last, was not altogether unexpected amongst his large circle of friends. He had been in indifferent health during the past seven months, his illness devel- oping into consumption, which we understand was the ultimate cause of his demise. The late Mr. Payne was a popular and well-respected identity of Cobar. Of a modest and retiring disposition, he took no part in public affairs, being content with his own business. Good-natured and charit- able, it was almost impossible for him to refuse a request for financial assistance, and many a man has been helped on the quiet when adversity overtook him, by George Payne. For about ten years deceased was the lessee of the Metropolitan Hotel, in Barton-street, prior to which he con- ducted the old Royal Hotel, which was then situated near the stand- pipe. He was 66 years of age, and has left a grown-up family ...

"INVISIBLE" UNIFORMS. ONE LESSON OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914

'INVISIBLE' UNIFORMS. ONE LESSON OF THE WAR. The following has been communicated by an eye-witness present with British Head quarters in Franco (says Tho Times, Oc tober 9, 1914): — In spite of the perfection Y,J^their arrangements for ranging and ob servation, . there hns .J;^-. waste ammunition by' the Germans. For in stance, within an area of two acres on our side of the Aisnc there aro over 100 craters made by their heavy high-explosive shells. This shower of projectiles, which must have cost somo £1000, did absolutely no damage, for tho locality never happened to bo occupied whilst it was being bombarded. It also incidentally illustrates ono weak point of indirect fire when unaccompanied by observation. Another example of prodigality In ammu nition is the continued shelling of Rheims. This is still carried on at Intervals, and on tho 6th resulted in tho deaths of an entire family of eight people.

NOW THEY TALK BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914

NOW THEY TALK BUSINESS. Tho efforts which are being made to cap ture some of Germany's trado are respons ible for a lot of hard work and overtime in the offices of British merchants. A story Is going the rounds of one mer chant who was very understaffed owing to a number of his men Joining the Colors whose places he had promised to keep open for them on their return. His business visitors would ask him his opinion on this and that movement in tho great war, and much valu able time was being wasted every day in this way. At last In desperation he placed a big notico over his desk. It read: 'Wo do not think of IT during business , hours.'

WAR FOR 'CULTURE.' | RUSSIA'S EFFORT. WHAT THE CRITICS SAY. Tlie bitter strife of revolutionary parties In Russia seems to bo drowned in the en thusiasm of all tho people for the war. Despatches say tho Czar can actually now ride about his capital, unguarded, in safety. Tho press of all factions aro not only unanl- j mous for war, but proclaim the advance on I Germany ns a crusade for culture and civili- i sation, with heaven favoring the Russian I cause. A Russian triumph, it Is made clcar, I would usher in a European millennium, while a Russian defeat Is not mentioned. Just as the strife in Ireland ceased at the outbreak of war, so a spirit of unanimity has pervaded the hostile political camps in the Czar's Em pire. Mr. V.

GERMANY'S BIG CANAL. FACTS ABOUT KIEL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914

GERMANY'S BIG CANAL FACTS ABOUT KIEL. Up to the present the Kiel Canal has proved a much more profitable investment for the German peoplo than the vast fleet which It Is at present hiding. For many years Prince Bismarck had cherished the idea of connecting Emden with Kiel Harbor by means of a great waterway, which would enable squadrons of warships to traverse the whole coastline free from ex ternal interference. Tho construction of the canal was begun in 1887, and after , eight years* work-in 1895 — it was formally opened to commerce in the presence of a large inter national fleet. Tho length was sixty miles, and it then had a normal width of 72ft, at the bottom and 220ft. at the water-level, with a depth of 29%ft. Although it is a sea-level canal, twin locks were built at each end, those at the western entrance to rectify the large tide variations, and thoso at the eaBtern end to rectify variations of water-level due to gales in the practically tidelesB Baltic. These locks wero 49...

WAR IN DAILY LIFE. FAMILIES UNDER FIRE. CHILDREN PLAY WHILE GUNS BOOM.

Women who never heard a gun fired until two months ago now go about their house hold duties with tho thunder of artillery shaking tho windows and a file of wounded soldiers passing tho front door, on their way to a first-aid hospital. Childron play about among the gun limbers that arc drawn up under covcr of a hedge, while the battery of which they arc a part is vigorously shelling the advancing Germans from a field near by.
