TOPICAL TRIFLES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
TOPICAL TRIFLES. A dental surgeon reports that som® of the men who went to the front last August "had no "teeth in juxtaposition or occlusion, others were almost edentulous." But the hoys went out to fight the Germans—not to eat them. A recent legal fight in the Probate Court suggests a new rendering of an old proverb: Where there's a will there's a fray. "Down Quilts" ran a headline in one of the morning papers. But it proved to be part of a draper's ad vertisement, and not, as we feared, the announcement of a chamber maids' strike. Success comes not so often to him who is fit for it as to him who has fought for it. We are apt to disregard the fash ions in war-time, but most of us are painfully aware that 'flue is just now all the rage. The Allies have formed a great money trust, and will make advances to countries that wish to enter tne war. Incidentally they will also make CHILD—Wednesday—9 advances into countries that will very soon wish to retire from th« war. The flower of Ger...
II [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
n. Derek Cranston had vowed lie would never be driven by a woman to enlist; but in his cooler moments lie realised that life would be impos sible without the love of Lottie Trel fall. Which perhaps accounts for the fact that when, some time later, a number of recruits were hurriedly brought together and drafted to the front for unexpected and urgent work, Derek Cranston was amongst the num ber. "I may as well be shot by a German as live the rest of my life in misery and loneliness," he muttered as he set to work to make preparations. But all the same, he was mortally afraid; and nothing but a fixed determination to win Lottie or die in the attempt, and so win back her respect, would have braced him to face the firing-line. ! On the night of their arrival he and | his companions lay in the trenches in wait for the enemy's movements; but it was not until a chill, wintry dawn was streaking the eastern sky, when a rain of bullets heralded the ap proach of the Germans, that any deci sive...
THE UNITS THAT COUNT [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
THE UNITS THAT COUNT i. "When you come back to England and tell me you have killed—say six Germans, then we will talk of mar riage—not before." There was a decisive ring in Lot tie TrelfalFs clear tones, a look of determination in her usually merry brown eyes that struck a chill to Derek Cranston's heart. He shifted uneasily from one foot to the other and leant a little more heavily 011 the table that stood be tween him and the girl he loved. In the dusk of a bitterly cold after noon in early November the ruddy glow from a crackling log-fire lighted up every corner of the Trelfalls' pret ty drawing-room, revealing evidences of comfort and luxury and a woman's refining touch. It fell, too, on Lot tie's chestnut ' hair, turning it to threads of living gold, and on the white, set face of the man who, deep down in his own heart, knew that he was a coward. "Perhaps," he said, with a short, un easy laugh, "you'd like me to bring their scalps as trophies." She glanced at him keenly. There ...
Held Up Ten Germans. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
Held Up Ten Germans. How the coolness and prompt ac tion of a private in the 1st Bedford shire Regiment resulted in the cap ture of ten Germans is related by one of his comrades. The Bedfords had driven the enemy from certain trenches, when the private in ques tion, daringly working his way ahead, suddenly came upon a trench in -rrtiich ten Germans were waiting for our main hody. Without a moment's hesitation he raised his rifle, covered the lot, and called upon them to sur render. Totally taken by surprise, the Germans held up their hands, while their ca?ptor shouted for assist ance. His comrades at once ran to his aid and brought in the ten as pris oners, the plucky private being awarded the D.S.O. for his conduct.
THE WOUNDED IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
THE WOUNDED IN WAR. I I The greatest living surgeon of the day, Alexis Carrel, is now in charge of one of the French division hos pitals (says Mr. Rupert Blue, M.D., Ph.D., in the "Daily Chronicle"). His skill is such that he can take a nearly severed limb, join the hones, sew the muscles together, unito the cut arteries, and connect nerve end with nerve end, making the injured arm or leg as good and useful as ever. Under war conditions, however, he can hardly have time to do much of this painstaking work. • The prevention of what are known as "camp diseases" will save a mul titude of lives during the present war. Vaccination against typhoid will accomplish much, Dut^even bet ter as a preventive of this malady is the practice of boiling the soldiers' drinking water.. The army doctors will see to that. At the 'same time, it is obvious that thirsty men on the march will not refrain on occasions from drinking water wherever they happen to find it—hence the value of' vaccination. Boiled...
His Greatest Try. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
His Greatest Try. "Somewhere in France" lies the body of Huggan, the dashing Scottish international three-quarter, who made his greatest try at Villers-Cotterets and scored splendidly. It is a mag nificent' story of unselfish heroism. Some sixty wounded Germans lay in a barn perilously situated between the German and British lines. The Germans, with their accustomed cal lousness for their wounded, were shelling this frail shelter. Their ter rible plight was observed by Huggan and his comrades of the Coldstream Guards. He called for volunteers, and was soon heading an heroic band in a rush through shot and shell towards the doomed building. One by one the wounded Germans were saved from a terrible-death—carried or helped back to the British lines amid the cheers of our men in the trenches. Alas! in the last effort, when moving a wounded man to the rear of the British position, Huggan was killed, and thus died the soldier whose name will ever shine as one of the Coldstreams' greatest ...
THE STOLEN BOX. A BANK MANAGER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
j THE STOLEN BOX. j A BANK MANAGER'S STORY. j Very soon after taking up the posi tion. of manager of the Westdale Bank, one dark November morning, I was going through a ledger when a tall gentleman, - of middle . age, and a young lady entered. "Just a word or two in private, Mr. Wilson," said the gentleman, whom I recognised as Mr. Phillipson, of The Grange. I left the counter and showed my visitors into a small private room at the back of the general office. Mr. Phillipson was carrying a bag, which appeared to be very heavy. He at once commenced to unpack the bag with as much composure as a commercial traveller who was cer tain of a big order. In a moment there was a sight be fore me to dazzle the eyes of any man. There were diamonds of enor mous size and intense brilliancy; there were sapphires, throwing a be witching light through the small room; there were rubies, pearls, em eralds, nay, the whole wealth of the Indies seemed to be displayed before me. "These jewels now belong to...
Linton Methodist Church. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
The anniversary of the above Church was celebrated on Sunday by special ser vices in the morning, afternoon, and evening, which were conducted by Mr J. Rouget, M.L.A., of Wandin. The attendances were good, and the preach er's discourses were listened to with rapt attention and interest. Mr Rouget has a fine delivery, and a way of impressing his hearers with the truth of bis words and the urgency of his appeal. The choir was in splendid form, and excelled itself in the hymns and anthems ren dered at each service. The choir was strengthened by the inclusion of .Mr T. Blyton and Mrs li., Bennett. The decor ations were carried out with patriotic colors and greenery, very tastefully ar ranged. On Monday night a sacred concert was given in the church by the choir. The weather could not be called favor able ; in fact, it was cold and wet. The only mitigating oircumstance was the moonlight. As a Frenchman once ob served, moonlight makes ^ great differ ence on a dark night. In spite of the w...
TURK'S TOBACCO DOWNFALL. Did He Blow Away His Empire in Smoke? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
TURK'S TOBACCO DOWNFALL. Did He Blow Away His Empire in Smoke? Was tobacco largely to blame for the downfall of the Turks? Was it their too great fondness for the se ductive pipe and cigarette -which re duced them from a great world power to their present low position amongst the nations? There are man who believe so, including among others, Von Moltke, the German strategist who planned the campaign against the French in the Franco German War. In his "Letters From Turkey," Von Moltke drew a contrast between the ancient and the modern Turks— the former fierce and untamed, the latter supine and sluggish to a de gree. He attributed the change which had come over the people to the effect of tobacco. Von Moltke was not alone in his opinion, for as long ago as 1829 one Dr. Madden published a book entitled "Travels in Turkey and Egypt," in which ;he said: "The pleasure the Turks had in the reverie consequent on the indulgence in the pipe consist ed in a contemporary annihilation of thought...

A WOMAN'S FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
A WOMAN'S FARM. A great deal of interest is taken in the co-operative women's farm that has been started at Mordialloc. The prime movers are, merely by coinci dence, members of the Women's Po litical Association, and as the major ity of these members have leanings towards Socialism, the farm may yet prove—or disprove—many theories. The land has been secured through the Closer Settlement Board, about twenty-three acres in all. Miss Ce cilia St. John, who has had three years' experience as a poultry far mer, and -who, even in these days of abnormal food prices, has done well at the business, is taking an active part in the management; while an other expert, Miss Ina Higgins, is standing in with it. Miss Higgins, a sister of Mr. Justice Higgins, was one of the first Burnley School of Horti culture graduates. She is account able for some particularly fine gar dens, and has always maintained that the ^profession offered good chances for the right kind of woman. The farm is to be worked o...
