NORTHERN DISTRICT STANDARD with which is incorporated the Boort Standard, KorongValc Lancc. and Quam batook Herald. I Interesting reading matter will be | found on our sixth page. Thursday, October 14. Australian Loans. For the first time the Premiers of the Australian States have met, have conferred with the Federal Treasurer, and have gone their several ways unrcfreshcd by any golden shower. The fact is significant. Up to this, the people of the Commonwealth have fared like spoilt children of the gods. There has been an almost unprecedented drought, a quite un | preccdentcd war, but, so far as the financial prosperity of Australian citics goes, the latter went far to neutralise and to conceal the effects of the former. Just at the crucial moment Great Britain volunteered a loan of ^24,000,000, and though the vast sum went unproductively in war expenditure, it made present employment for manufacturers and their employes, created keen demand at high prices fur all the primary produc...

ACME OF SENSATION. IMPRESSION OF BAYONET CHARGE. MURDER IN YOUR VEINS. "Wo caught the weasals asleep and wo pulled (heir tnlls," remarked Pri vate Allen Waters, who returned re cently from tho front. "That means that in a charge wo made on Hill 971, on the extreme left of the line, wo surprised tho Turks in their sleep, and as they emerged from their dug-outs we pounded them through. Wo got right In on them before they know that we had loft our trenches. We took possession pf several machine guns, including one gentleman whom we had nicknamed 'Beachy Bill.' We called him that because every time any of our men moved towards the beach this machine-gun was turned on them. We dreaded it, and we wore glad to have it on our side. "It was a successful chargo, though I was in others that were hotter. Bay onet charges ara the. acme of sensa tion. You have not the slightest fear of bullets. Murder flows In your veins.

AUSTRALIA AND CANADA HOW THEY RESPONDED. Commonwealth Ahead in Men. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915
AUSTRALIA AND CANADA HOW THEY RESPONDED. Commonwealth Ahead In Men. Constantly Australia Is being told to look at Canada as an example of what a loyal Dominion can do lu war ser vice. So far as materials are con cernei the Commonwealth lags behind, but when the human element la con sidered wo have nothing to be asham ed of. Some months ago the London papers annoiinced that Canada had a liugo army in training, but it has since been proved that the total men tioned was the number of men under arms, Includlug citizens drilling for homo defence. As a matter of fact, up to August 7 Canada had sent 78,000 men to the front. That fact was ofllcially stated by the Prime Minister (Mr. Borden) at a dinner given In his honor in Lon don last month. People who say un kind things about Australia in thljs connection evidently overlook two Im portant points—that Canada's popula tion is nearly twice as largo as our own, and that its proximity to the United States enables it to largely re cruit from t...
MAKING PEOPLE MARRY [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915
MAKING PEOPLE MARRY The idea of compulsory marriage has been suggested a number of times, particularly in countries like Fiance, where the birth-rate is going down so (juiclcty. The last time it was serious ly suggested was In the Austrian- town of Trieste, the place for which the Ital ians are fighting. One of the town councillors tried to get a law passed that on a certain day all spinsters ol l!5 and men of 30 should present them selves at the various local government offices, have their nameB drawn from an urn two at a time and the couples so chosen should be compelled to mar ry one another. Luckily for Tries 'Inns, the scheme was'negatived. Smart Constable (to lost child): What's your name? Lost Child: I do-o-n't kno-o-ow. Smart Constable: Where do you live? Lost Child: I do-o-n't kno-o-ow. Smart Constable: ,Where do you buy sweeties? Lost Child: Mrs. Marshall's. Identified accordingly.

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, August 21, 1915. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915
LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, - August.21,. 1915. - In the short spells of sunshine that coma between the rain the beauty of the countryside reveals itself. 1 spent one morning during the last week-end tramping across some twenty odd ' miles of country-side in the Eastern countries. The hedges and heaths ' were one mass of wild ilowers. Honey, suckle was particularly abundant, climbing and flowering freely over every hedge. The blackberry bushes were almost weighed down with fruit. Flowers of a hundred varieties, the wild flowers oT I'nglnnd, bloomed with luxuriance. Whore ordinary flowers could not flourish the heather was in full flower, making some of the heaths masses of purple. na ;ie whirred up from one s feet. The proMem of what to do with the game is a serious one one in many parts. The owners of the coverts are mostly at the war. The tradition that' hangs around iiamo—a tradition that gce.> deep down in Eng lish life—prevents leave being given to villagers to d...
CORRESPONDENCE. A RETURNED SOLDIER. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 14 October 1915
| CORRESPONDENCE. A RETURNED SOLDIER. To the Editor. Just a line, Mr Editor, to remind the Boort townspeople of a duty they have neglected. A few days ago one of our soldiers (Private Hindson) returned wounded from the front, the first to to this district, an'i I think the least the people of Boort cou'd have done wag to accord him a welcome of some kind. If our late hero -the Rev G. A Stewart —had been alive, and in this district, such a thing as this would not have escaped his eyes. One of our leading townesmen remarked at a send-off given this young fellow—" And when you come hack we will greet you with open arms and give you a reception I am sure you will be worthy of." A fine reception he got. I wonder will they all get the same reception?— Yours, Ac., P. D. STRATON. Boort, Oct 13. [If tho facts are correct as stated by i our correspondent. then a decided re flection hai been cast on the ppjaker who made the remarks referred to.— Ed "N.D S."]

Mr. Le Gaillenne Is not a very ereat admirer of the catering at English inns. Some time ago he strolled into a certain hostelry and ordered dinner.

"Yes, sir: and tho great Dook of Marlborough once drunk 'Is beer out of tho same mug as you're drlnkln' out of." "And I'll bet," said Mr. Le Gai llenne, as ho rose to take his depar ture, "that .the great Duke of Marl borough refused to eat this chicken!" Farmer's Son (golf mad): You must acknowledge, father, that it re quires a great deal of skill to drive a hall a hundred yards. HIb Father: Rubbish! It doesn't re-1 quire half uB.much skill ns it doea to | drive a pig fifty feet!
