AUSTRALIAN BRANCH OF THE RED CROSS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 5 June 1915
AUSTRALIAN BRANCH OF THE RED CROSS. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-I feel sure that I may con fidently appeal to you to assist us in raising a substantial sum of money, -to be sent by the residents of the Werribee district, as a dona tion towards the noble wo~k of the Australian Red Cross Society. Some of us have already contri buted individually to the central fund; but it is thought that a conm bined effort on the part of resi dents of each of the various country districts would extend the interest in the movement throughout Vic toria. I need not remind you of the splendid achievements of the Red Cross Societies in relieving and mit igating the suffering of the brave soldiers, who are sacrificing so much in this dreadful war. Money is urgently needed for the equipment of field hospitals, for ambulance work, as well as for providing corn: forts for our Australian soldiers, which will lessen the hardships the men must endure. Contributions sent in now may help to save many lives...

WHY WE ARE AT WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 5 June 1915
WHY WE ARE AT WAR. (From the London "Times.") There are still, it seems, some Englishmen and Englishwomen who greatly err as to the reasons that have forced England to draw the sword. They know that it was Ger-. many's flagrant violation-of Belgian neutrality which filled the cup of her indignation and made her people insist upon war. They do not re flect that our honour and our inter est must have compelled us to join France and Russia, even- if Germany had scrupulously respected the rights of her small neighbours, and had sought to hack her way into France through the Eastern fortresses. The German Chancellor has insisted more than once upon this truth. He has fancied, apparently, that he was making an argumentative point against us by establishing it. That, like so much more, only shows his complete misunderstanding of our attitude and of our character. The invasion of Belgium, and still more the abominable system' of .crime which followed it, have indeed very deeply moved us. Li...

CHAPTER X XXVII -Continued. "Does the slave reproach the master who keeps his carcase from the ken nel?" Ben Heer asked, as he bowed low. "My mistress was right; her hands were washed whiter than the snow in the blood of the Christian. It was well; it was just." -"Then you shall help. me, for:there is much to be done. Take this -ring. Place it on your finger and go to the others. They are outside waiting. Give theri the call, thus." - The princess made a faint noise like the drowsy call of a bird, and.Ben Heer caught it up at once. He had heard it many times before. Then he slipped o~t like a cat in the darkness, and presently the call came from the gloom. A moment latt r it was an swered, and then all was still again. Mrs. May, who had discarded the princess for a moment, closed her win dow. It was a g...

DEBATING SOCIETY. At the last meeting of the Bac chus Marsh United Churches Debat ing Society, on- Tuesday evening,' in the Presbyterian hall, the Rev. F. E. Lewin, of Ballan, gave a most in teresting lecture (illustrated) on Westminster Abbey. The rev. gen tleman spoke in a most pleasing way for over two hours, without a single note, during. which he gave a mass of historical matter, and ex plained every niche and corner of the famous building. This was made easy to the lecturer, as he has a personal knowledge of the Abbey, having been educated at a school "under the shadow" of it, and at tended the Abbey as the school chapel. A vote of thanks was passed to the lecturer, on the motion of Mr. W. Williams, B.A., and Rev. B. Williains. Also one to the hon. lanternist (Mr. H.: M. Hodgson). Both expressed their thanks, and the National Anthem closed the meeting. A collection taken up during 'the, evening added £2/15/ to the Serbian Relief Fund.
