OUR TRAIN SERVICE. Commissioners Criticised. In the Kaiser's Footsteps. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

OUR TRAIN SERVICE. Commissioners Criticised. In the Kaiser's Footsteps. President Barnes, ot the Gordon Shire Council, at their last meeting, severely criticised the Railway Com missioners Tor the manner in which they are treating toe Boort line. I!e stated that they were being treated worse than ever in the run ning of the trains. It was a dis" grace to call themselves Commis sioners. They had passed through lloort in a'lash special train some thing that would remind one of the Kaiser and all his arrogance and as a re>u!t the deputation that waited upon them got little or no thing from them. In referring to the time-table, he said that was a thing of the past ; trains wcrearriv ing in Boort anything from live, to sixty minutes late. On the face of this evidence it appeared as if the management of the service had got beyond the Commissioners.

Ladies' Column. Dress Accessories. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

Ladies' Column. Dress Accessories. (By Rosaland). The cleverness of our leading modistes is a thing that makes one pause and consider just now—tor simple as the frocks and blouses may be the finishing touches and accessories are extraordinarily clever and infinitely subtle. A simple blouse, for example, may be examined for along time ere the unsophisticated eye is made to realise that the salient feature on which rests the secret of its charm is some alluring little finish in the collar, fitment, or perhaps the faci nation of a frock may lie in the careless grace of its sash arrange ment. " So much depends on so little," is being true in all matters per taining to dress and the success thereof. More often than not the witchery of a gown depends on the perfection and appropriateness of its accessories. So let every woman consider carefully the small details of her costume if she desires to appear eminently attractive. Parasol. One thing that never fails to draw the .eye of a woman is...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Private Dougald O'Brien, writing to his relatives from the firing line   on August 3rd says : --- We have been having lovely weather up to the present, but I believe the winter here is very severe --- plenty of rain and snow. There is every prospect of us being here for the winter as the Turks show no sign of moving from their positions. We are push- ing ahead slowly and it is nothing but dig all the time 0n both sides. We have just finished a new firing line on top of a ridge and just across the valley on the highest peak of the next ridge the Turks are digging for their lives. In the day time we can see   them throwing up the dirt and often our chaps find amusement in sniping at their shovels which, of course, makes them steady up. In the night time we can hear them talking and digging quite plainly. When we were digging our trenches some of us had to go out in the night in front of the trench to protect our comrades from an unexpected ...

The home was a modem mansion and luxuriously furnished, every thing pointing to the possession of wealth. The little girl soon re appeared and went into the gnrden, where she wandered amid the flowers, ller attention was soon attracted to a ragged little urchin who had paused at the fence and gazed wistiully at the dainty Utile maiden who looked so lovely and happy amid such pleasant sur roundings. j He sighed as he thought of the i difference in their lives. The little girl came over to where he was standing. "Who are you?'' she asked softly. He started at this direct address. " I'm Harry," he replied. "What are you doing here?" she asked.
