WOODEN WEALTH. RICH VICTORIAN TIMBER FOREST [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

WOODEN WEALTH. RICH VICTORIAN TIMBER FOREST By J. F. Foran. City dwellers do not realise what a fine aBset there is for the State in proper attention to forestry. Recent ly I was through the Blackwood, Bul larook and Wombat State forests, and it would do some town folk good to have a look at the wooden wealth that is growing up for us. This big area runs from Daylesford to Rocky Lead, touching a point a few miles from Ballan and extending past East Trentham. The total acreage I can only guess at, but across country at one part it is just on 30 miles.' Mess mate and white gum are the chief timbers, with peppermint and swamp gum in parts. Thfs Wombat messmate is unequalled anywhere. Thirty-five years ago there was a mill where the State battery was recently erected. Showing the durability of the mess mate, It can be cited that the base blocks used for the battery were taken from waste, sawn timber which had been left in the old mill dumps just on 40 years ago. White ants made a bean-f...

CONSTANTINOPLE'S PLIGHT. LACK OF DRINKING-WATER AND COAL. LOCAL GARRISON DEPLETED. Signor Alessandro Negro, a Turin manufacturer, .who lias just returned trom a long visit to Constantinople to Turin, communicates to tlio "Gazetta" del l'opolo" some interesting impres sions of present-day -lifo iu the Turk ish capital. "The outward aspect of the cltv," he says, "Is normal. Tho habitual apathy 01 the Turks makes them more or iess indifferent, even ill tho face of tho grievous fate which is at their very doors. This state of feeling is further fostered by tho one-sided, op timistic official communiques, tho pas sive conduct of tho newspapers, sev eral of which have preicrred total suppression to tho ruthless scissors of the censorship, and to tne fact that food prices have not gone up by leaps and bounds, as in Germany and Austria-Hungary. "However, among the more intelli gent section of the population dire forebodings underlie apparent calm, and indeed broke into open panic on the occ...

CONCERNING MENINGITIS. OPINION OF PROMINENT MEDICO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

CONCERNING MENINGITIS. OPINION OF PROMINENT MEDICO. Interesting opinions as to the cause of cercbro-splnal meningitis and sug gestions for the remedy and preven tion of the disease are contained in an article by Dr. Morris Gamble, of Kew, in the "Medical Journal of Australia." His observations are embraced in an order to the staff of a large Govern ment institution, of which he has con trol. Dr. Gamble states that the di sease is almost certainly conveyed from one person to another through the bite from a certain domestic ver min, and he advises the systematic ex amination of patients, their clothes, bed linen, and beds, "until further notice," and for report to be made at once if any vermin be discovered. In his reasons for giving such instruc tions he remarks that the present epi demic originated in Victoria at the Seymour military camp, which was In adequately supplied with water for bathing purposes, and the tents were overcrowded.

KING'S SISTER ON THE WAR. Duchess Tells of the Sufferings of Her People in Belgium. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

KING'S SISTER ON THE WAR. Duchess Tells of the Sufferings of Her People In Belgium. By Ruth Wright Kauffman. The eyes of ancient Kings were on us In tho grand salon at Belmont, while lier Royal Highness Henrlotte, Ducliess of Vondorao and Princess of Belgium, tho sister of King Albert, told mo, simply and as woman to woman, of tho sufferings of lier peo ple. "Wo are poor!" said the Duchess of Vendome. "All our money, every thing, is 1" Brussels! I may not oven send a letter to the friends of my childhood, nor may they write to mo. If a letter slips through it is by mere chance!" There was a sweet rising inflection in her use of my language, and a pleasant lack of emphasis. Each syl ablo fell precisely into its place, and each phrase had a rhythmic swing— I might better say a rhythmic sing. It was her largo, blue eyes that gave tho emphasis, steady and true, re flecting the tortures of Belgium; more than once they held tears. "Our beautiful bourgeoisie were so happy!"—I wish I could ...

A Warning Bell. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

A Warning Bell. About six months ago, the Iioort and District Progress Association drew the attention of the Railway Department to the dangerous rail way crossing in Godfrey Street, and asked that a warning bell be erected. A reply was eventually received stating that a warning bell was not required at this particular crossing. The Association again wrote pointing out the dangers, and a reply was received that the Com missioners would make an inspec tion on the forthcoming tour. The Commissioners have made their tour, and when the matter was brought under their notice by the deputation that waited upon them, the request was brushed aside, the Commissioners not having the courtesy to inspect the crossing in company with the members of the deputation, who were represen tative men of the town aud district. On the face of this, it appears that the Commissioners had decided be fore band to turn the proposal down. If so, why -should the De partment hoodwink the residents of this important...

OLD CUSTOMS OVERTURNED. THE EFFECTS OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

' OLD CUSTOMS OVER TURNED. THE EFFECTS OF WAR. | Not all, perhaps not oven the great* est, problems of war aro met nnd solved on tho field or In the camp. War Is the great upheaval. Social conditions as well as economic ones aro changed by its touch. However much life may seem on the surfaco to flow in its nccustoniod channels we may be assured that nothing real ly is as it was before. A'people may bear with stoicism tho slaughter of its best young men; women may smilo while their hearts bleed; old men and boys may take on tho bur dens of vigorous manhood with cour | age, but in spite of all life in war and life in peace are as opposito as tho poles. Travellers may comment on the seeming indifference of London, or the unruffled ways of Berlin or tho I calm courage of Paris, hut we should not be deceived by surfaco Indica j tions. In every family from tho high est to tho lowest the hand of war is felt. Piccadilly Circus, or Unter den Linden or the Champs Elvsees may look much as they...

TIME ON OUR SIDE. Mr. Winston Churchill, speaking at the London Guildhall, said: "Nearly a year has passed since in this hall you called upon me to oiler a few words of counsel and encouragement in the situation in which we found ourselves last August. Five great Powers are allied together against Germany—ourselves, France, Russia, italv, and that grand ally—never for get—Time. Time is on our side, not waste. Time must be used as one of the forces on the side of the AllieB, to concert, to co-ordinate, and com bine their ultimate offensive strength, in war the use of time is one of the most vital factors, but if we are to pursue our part resolutely and un swervingly, not being daunted by suc cess not being immediately achieved, oearing heavy losses with composure, that I say patience, fortune, loyalty, helpfulness, comadeship must be all forthcoming in unstinted abundance.

NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

NAPOLEON. By Walt Masou. If great Napoleon's shade looks down from some red star, on mighty hosts arrayed (or stern, decisive war, he'll see so many traps unheard of in his day, that he will groan, perhaps, and heave a sigh, and say: "Great Scott! Had I possessed such implements as those, how quickly galley west 1 ;tiould have knocked my foes! Ah! those quick-firing guns—magnificent, sublime! They scatter tons of hard ware at a time! And see those sol diers fly, on boiler metal wings! They soar up to the sky, and drop their oombs, by jings! Alas, in ail my wars, I rode a spavined steed, but now, in motor cars, the generals pro ceed. When messages 1 sent, a boI uier bore the same, and foemeu, as he -.vent, shot fragments from his frame; out now this wireless scheme sends messages afar; it all seems iike a dream, and not a bit like war.

HOW PARIS LIVES. AT THE END OF ONE YEAR OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

HOW PARIS LIVES. . AT THE END OF ONE YEAR OF WAR. By Paul Proctor. One year ago Paris was a city of frippery and folly, of love and laugh ter and music aud the all-night danco; of vendors of the gold bricks, guides, interpreters, and Apaches; of memor ies of Trilby, of nights on the wicked heights of Montmartre, and of even ings spent in "Bohemia" observing the strange habits of long-haired phe nomenons with paint stains on their breeches and voluminous black neck ties. Paris was a city of all this just one year ago—to those who saw it through a Baedeker. Aud to-day? To-day it is merely a great business and political centre. It is—ijulte simply—the capital of trance. It has left its romantic trap pings and its evil habits to trouble tlie dreams and consciences of its peace time visitors, and is intently oc cupied in being jusL itself, stolid, stoilgy, workaday, commercial, beau tiful and very busy. Which is really what it ahvajs was beneath its cioak o' siren gaiety. Everybody in Pa...
