FIGHTING IN FORESTS. Trees Help to Win Battles. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 24 April 1915

FIGHTING IN FORESTS. Trees Help to Win Battles. Commanders in France are taking full advantage of the wooded state of the country over which fighting is tak ing place, and forests are playing an important part in various strategical moves. Fierce fights for forests are of frequent occurrence, as such posi tions are a decided advantage to the army having possession of them. They offer a serious obstacle to the ad vance of the enemy, for troops cannot march, neither can artillery be rapidly transported through dense woods. What roads are available can also be simply blocked by a few fallen trees. The latter tactics are especially ef fective for covering up retreats. Many batteries are now secreted in woods, away from the prying eyes of aerial scouts. The guns are placed in clearings and they send out shells in an upward direction, through holes in the foliage above. An army possessing a wood is, in fact, in as happy a posi tion as if they were safely ensconced in a steel fort. They ca...

CHAPTER XXV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 24 April 1915

CHAPTER XXV. Meanwhile Dolly had rushed back to the hotel where she and her hus band were staying, and in a burst of tears had given him an account of all that had happened. Lord Bletchley comforted her with kisses and tender words, and assured her again and again that of course he would do all he could for Margaret. At the same time he looked very grave. It was no easy task his wife was setting him. Conflict with a man like Petkoff on such a matter as this had a very dis agreeable savor about it; moreover, Lord Bletchley knew how difficult it always was to interfere between a husband and a wife. When Doll3r talked about his go ing at once to the British Embassy he only shook his head. "You see, darling," he explained, "it isn't a diplomatic matter. If we went to anyone we ought to go to the British Consul; but although I am perfectly sure that you are right and that the man is a beast, we mustn't lose sight of the fact that Margaret did marry him of her own free will, apparently al...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. 0, Great interest is being taking in Mon day nights' concert in the Parish Hall in j aid of the Belgian Relief Fund. Apart from the dnty of helping this great cause, the entertainment promises to be j such an attraction that no one would ] even in ordinary circumstances regret the expenditure of trie very low price of admission.

SUNSET AND DAWN By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. vPublisbed by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXIV. (Continued.) The presence of the two maids com pelled her to take a full grip of her self. All chance of further confi dence was at an end, so after kissing Margaret again and making an en gagement to see her early the next morirtng, Dolly reluctantly went away. Outside her sister's bedroom door she met the valet of the Prince, and, recognising the man, she spoke to him: "I want to see Prince Petkoff," she said. "Where is he? Will you take me to him, please?" "His Highness is with his secretary, my lady," the valet said. "I, will tell ciim you are here." A moment later Lady Bletchley was shown into a room a little further down the passage. Petkoff came towards her with out stretched hands. "Ah! the little Dolly," he said; "the pretty sister. Why, this is charming. 1 had no idea you were in j Paris." "Can I speak to you alo...

IY. There were only a few survivors of the good ship Crescent. But the tale these men told made England ring. David Lilley's name was one which was hailed with acclaim. Through him the enemy had suffered a crashing blow, instead of dealing one. The papers were full of it, praising up the men of the Crescent, giving them honor as men who died bravely i for their country's sake. Brilliant ac counts of the action made folks re member the mother. Friends who had forgotten to notice that Mrs. Lil Iey had not been seen for a couple of danys went to congratulate and con dole with her. What a proud woman she would be, this mother who had let her only sou go! But how would she bear the news that he was dead? They feared to find her broken up with grief. Yet perhaps she might be filled with happiness because her son had been so brave! Extract from an evening paper: — "It was a strange and rather sad co incidence that Mrs. Lilley, mother of the boy of whom England is so proud to-day, died last...

Boring for water has been successfully carried out in this district under control of the Riponshire Council. A very good supply has been obtained near Mr Cob den's residence, Carranballac, where a windmill and tanks have been erected. Another bore has been tried with success on the back Streatham road, and a third in Skipton, at Mr A. E. Baker's. A light fall of rain early in the week supplemented the heavy downpour of the 11th inst., and with warm clear days following the grass is beginning to spring up in abundance. The balance-sheet of the recent jumble fair in aid of the Patriotic fund shows a profit of £129 16s lid. This has been divided equally between the Belgian Re lief Fund and the local branch of the Red Cross Society. Mr P. W. Dixon has been appointed caretaker of the Mechanics' Institute, for a period of three mouths, with the option of reappointment at the end of that time. The residents are still divided over the question of the railway station site. Those whose proper...

DIAMOND DIGGER'S LUCKY FIND. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 24 April 1915

DIAMOND DIGGER'S LUCKY FIND. From the Killarney diamond dig gings comes the story of a diamond digger who for some time had met with ill-luck. One day he found him self face to face with starvation. In addition to himself he had to support his wife and two little children, and his credit with, the neighboring shop keepers having been exhausted, his position was by no means an enviable one. The only possession of the unfor tunate. man consisted of two miser: able fowls, which, he exchanged with a shopkeeper for a quantity of mealie meal. Having concluded his bargain, the digger and his family trekked away to another spot. One day on their trek, while the mother of the family was preparing the evening meal, which consisted of meal pap, she noticed some hard sub stance in the food. She took out a spoonful, which she showed to her husband, who suddenly became inter ested, carefully sifted the mealie meal through his fingers, and in the end re tained in his hand a bright, sparkling stone...

THE MAN WHO KEEPS HIS HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 24 April 1915

THE MAN WHO KEEPS HIS HEAD. There's a man who fights for England, And he'll keep her still atop, He will save her from dishonor In the market and the shop, He will save her homes from terror On the fields of daily bread. He's the man who sticks to business— He's the Man who keeps his head. Let the foe who strikes at England Hear her wheels of commerce turn; Let the ships that war with England See her factory furnace burn. For the foe most fears the cannon And his heart most quails with dread When behind the man in khaki Is the Man who keeps his head. Brand him traitor and assassin Who with miser"s coward mood Has his gold locked up in secret And his larder stored with food, Who has cast adrift his workers, Who lies sweating in his bed, And who snarls to hear :he laughter Of the Man who keeps his head. Let the poor man teach the rich man, For the prior man's constant strife Is from day to day to seek work, Day by day to war with life; And the poor man's home hangs ever By a frail and...

MISTAKES MADE BY CRIMINALS. A Poisoner's Mania. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 24 April 1915

MISTAKES MADE BY CRIMINALS. A Poisoner's Mania. It is an axiom of Scotland Yard that the cleverest criminal makes a mis take sooner or later, which brings him into the hands of the police. Crippen might never have gone to the gallows for the murder of his wife, Belle El more, so skilfully did he hide ail traces of his crime, had he not sudden ly had an attack of "nerves," and bolt ed with his female companion. Miss Le Neve, who dressed up in boy's attire. As Sir Melville Macnaugbton, late head of the Criminal Investigation De partment, dryly remarks in his re miniscences, "Days of My Years" (Ar nold), "All young women are not Vesta Tilleys." He relates how the inspec tor who made the examination of Crip pen's house in Hilldrop-crescent was so impressed with Crippen's calm de meanor and behavior, and the facili ties which he accorded the inspector for the examination, that he formed the opinion that if there had been foul play the body had not beeii deposited within the precincts of ...

Cr Donald M'Pherson went with the First Expeditionary Force. The ladies oi sewing committee have been busy foi months past sewing and knitting for the troops. The Patriotic Fund contribu tions from State school compare favorably with those of other district schools. From present appearances there is go ing to be a shortage of first-class English cars in Australia for some time to come. The majority of the leading automobile manufacturing plants have been in part requisitioned by the Wai Office for military purposes, which ir most cases means a limitation of cars foi export, and in some instances an absolute stoppage of supplies. Amongst the latter is Yickers & Co., makers of the Wolseley car—the whole of their planl now being controlled by the military authorities.

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 24 April 1915

• It was only after a fierce struggle, during which many lives were lost, that the British took Hill " 60," an eminence in the Ypres region, which commands a considerable lot of country. Warlike preparations continue to be made by Italy and Austria on the fron tier. Mr Asqnith made an earnest appeal at Newcastle for co-operation on the part of the employers and workers in the output of munitions to the front. " I would remind yon," said the Prime Minisrer, " of the promise mode to the Government at the outset of this war that you would deliver the goods." America aspires to prove hersel, the the friend of Europe, so that shs may be the mediating nation when the time for peacc comes. Great skill and pluck were displayed by a volunteer crew of British bine jackets, who destroyed a strauded sub marine in the Dardanelles so that it should not fall into the hands of the

IIJ. "Tlie Rambler struck by torpedo." The wireless brought the message to the Crescent as it stood on guard, a trusty sentinel watching the seas. Slowly she got up steam and set of£ for the scene of destruction of the Rambler, her dark funnels spurting forth black smoke as the speed in creased. She was not a new cruiser, but all on deck would give their last ounce of strength for the sake of the country they loved. But there were no signs of the Rambler when they arrived. All there was was a small fishing craft, which looked as if it were belonging to a neutral country. David, who, being re lated to the captain of the Crescent, had perhaps greater chances of talk ing with him, went and mentioned his suspicions. "I feel sure that we're in a trap," he said thoughtfully. "Remember that, according to the fleet's programme, there would have been some of the big battleships to get the message. I j think that that vessel over there has wireless, that it sent the message hop- j ing to draw...
