German Hate. "Once Let Us Get Into England." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
German Hate. "Once Let Us Get Into England." "You talk about atrocities com mitted. in Belgium by German soldiers. Whatever was committed in Belgium cannot be called barbarism an the part of the German Army; but once let us get into England, and there will be no way of holding back our sol diers, and no doubt the world will learn of atrocities committed which are unknown to-day." This is an extract from expressions of ferocious hatred towards the Brit ish uttered by all classes of Germans, high and low, in the presence of Mr. Gustave C. Reeder, a veteran mem ber of the staff of the "New York World." who has just returned from a tour through Germany.
EXPLAINING THE WAR IN A SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
EXPLAINING THE WAR IN A SUBMARINE. The modern German submarine con sists of three main parts—the outer liull, the inner hull, and the conning tower. The space between the outer and inner hulls is occupied by diving tanks and oil fuel tanks. Being a ship within a ship she is not easily put out of action, and unless she is rammed with great force only her ou~er hull will be damaged. The submarine can run on the sur face or submerged. She is entered by two hatches, the one generally used being in the top of the conning tower. Descending by a steep lad der the visitor finds himself in an oval tower, about 10ft. long and 6ft. high. It is of steel armor 4in. thick. The ends of the two periscopes, or instruments for seeing what is hap pening on the surface when the boat is submerged, come down through the conning tower roof, and their eye pieces are placed at a convenient level. One is used by the quarter master, or steersman, and has the steering wheel close to it. The other is the captai...
War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
Galicia continues to be the scene of tremendously heavy fighting. The Ger mans are making great sacrifices to gain the advantage. In both Northern France and West ern Flanders the British forees are en gaged in battles which should have im-1 portant results. A visit to tho front has convinced Ben Tillett, the English Labor leader, of the urgent need for a greater output of mu nitions. According to & neutral, the damage inflicted by the Allies' airmen on Karls ruhe was considerable. It is reported that the barracks and a munitions fac tory were destroyed.

THE HOME COMING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
| THE HOME COMING. | By Yelva Burnett. "Howie, if you could know what this J means to me!" !

Thought It Was a Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
Thought It Was a Joke. The Galway tenant had paid his rent. The landlord was exceedingly grateful. "No'sv, O'Flaherty." observed the latter, "which would you rather have, a ton of coal or a dozen of whisky?" It was then that the Galway smile spread and flourished. "Ye will have your joke, sorr; ye knnw I hum peat."
Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
Some day, an intensely interesting article on the use of the motor in the Great War will be written. . What a gigantic story it will make ! Atpreseut, it is impossible even to guess at the consumption of petrol, tyres—in fact, entire vehicles. Yet, alongside the tre mendous, one might say the insatiable, demand for motor material of all kinds, one notes the call for the modest, unas sumiug, out-oE-date pu^h-bike. It is interesting; to learn that the motor-cycle and side-car , machine-gun outfit has been doing excellent work at the front. In the fight for the now fam ous " Hill 60 " it is stated by the official ''Eye-Witness" that' the motor-cycle machine-guns achieved a brilliant suc cess in, repulsing German counter at tacks. For a considerable period doubt I has been expressed as to the actual value , of the uew arm, but there can be no question from now onwards as to its - utility." This means therefore that more orders will be placed for these side-car machine-guns. There is no ...

FOR ACID STOMACHS USE MAGNESIA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915
FOR ACID STOMACHS USE MAGNESIA. ? . The almost universal use of magnesia hy physicians and specialists in the treat ment of stomach troubles is due to the fact that it stops food fermentation arid neutralises the acid—the direct canse of nearly all stomach troubles. Of the many forms of magnesia such as oxides, carbonates, sulphates, etc., the most suitable and efficient, and the one prescribed by leading specialists, is bisurated magnesia, half a tea-spoonful of which iu a little warm water immedi ately after eating will instantly neutralise the acid, stop the fermentation, and thus ensure painless, normal-digestion. Care should be taken .to get bisurated mag nesia, as its action is infinitely more effective. It is also, by the way, usually stocked by chemists in convenient com-, pressed tablets as well as in the ordinary powder form;; Stomach sufferers and dyspeptics who follow this plan and avoid the use of pepsin, charcoal, drugs and medicines are invariably astonished to find t...
BURNS ON THE GERMANS Scotia's Bard Hits Off the Huns. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
BURNS ON THE GERMANS Scotia's Bard Hits Off the Huns. The opinion of Robert Burns on the Germans is of extraordinary interest at the present moment. We are some times inclined to think that all the sins of the Teutons date from modern times. That they were held in utter detestation over a hundred years ago by Scotland's national poet is a re markable fact. ' , Burns had too wide a view to rail in Pharisaic fasnion at his fellow-man. His condemnation, therefore, has all the more force. In a letter written to the Rev. Dr. M'Gill, of Ayr, he ad mits his incompetence to express his detestation of the Germans. Pie states: "ignorance, superstition,, bigotry, stupidity, malevolence, self conceit, envy—all strongly bound in a massive frame of brazen impudence. Good God, sir, to such a shield, humor is the peck of a sparrow, anci satire the pop-gun of a schoolboy!" That is fairly strong language, but stronger is to follow. The letter proceeds: ■ "Creation disgracing scelerats such as they, G...
WOMAN'S WORLD. WOMAN'S RESPONSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
WOMAN'S WORLD. WOMAN'S RESPONSIBILITY. , | There is nothing to be ashamed oi .In this—a woman's thoughts turn to | love and marriage as naturally as a flower to the sun. But even though it is so often in a i girl's mind, one has a doubt if she begins to realise what, it all means. | Even at the altar the solemnity of the vows she makes weighs but light ly on her mind. She loves the man and means to make him a good wife; but her ideas of the duties of a wife are of the vaguest. In marrying a man it is not alone his love you accept; you are indebted to him, in most cases, for your actual support. The only way in which you can re pay this obligation is by making him a good wife. We do best that which we are most | naturally fitted for, and every true woman should be at her best when fulfilling the duties of wife and motherhood. The good wife should be her hus band's comfort, strengthening him wnen he is weak, softening him when he is hard, walking proudly by him in success, giving him ...
WHY DOGS' NOSES ARE COLD. He Stood in the Doorway of the Ark. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
WHY DOGS' NOSES ARE COLD. He Stood in the Doorway of the Ark. When your faithful old dog pokes his nose into your hand, even your affection cannot prevent a little shi ver, because the nose is so cold. Why is it? When the bodv'of a dog is so warm, why should this one spot be different from all the rest of him? The old fable tells us that when Noah tried to get all the animals in to the ark some of them were trou blesome, and he had to get a dog to help him drive them in. Because of this the dog was the last to enter the ark. There was no room left, so he had to stand in the doorway with his nose outside in the wet, and it has never been warm since. Science gives quite another explan ation of the matter. The coldness of a dog's nose is, it says, due to the fact that it must be kept moist all the .time in order to sharpen his sense of "smell. And, of course, as the mois ture is evaporating all the time, it keeps his nose cold. A dog depends a great deal on his powers of smell, especia...
Chief of the "Dare-Devils." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
Chief of the "Dare-Devils." The best-loved soldier in Serbia is the famous Major Djoukitch, chief dare-devil of the Dare-Devils or Com itadges, the irregulars in the Serbian army. How they go or how they per form their tasks no one asks. They almost always succeed or they do not return. Many of them are under the command of Major Djoukitch, who is credited with having killed 40,000 to 50,000 Austrians. It was he and his men who took possession of the island of Tsiganlia, which lies in the river midway between Belgrade and Semlin. It was he who repulsed the Austrian assaults and piled up thou sands of dead men on the banks, while hundreds of drowning and dead Austrians floated own the river. A few weeks ago there flew proud ly on the opposite bank of the Save an.Austrian flag. This the major did not like to see. So it was decided to take it down. One dark night two boats set out form Tsiganlia carrying some Serbian irregulars. One boat made an attack and engaged the at tention of the...
Did Their Bit. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
Did Their Bit. No more gallant feat has been per formed than that of a company of young Engineers; who, at a certain point on the British front, recently succeeded in digging a new trench under a heavy rifle and gun fire at a distance . of - only twenty-five yards from the German advanced trenches. The feat was accomplished hy night, but the Germans, employing star .shells, were able to pour in an only too effective fixe upon our plucky fel lows. Yet these youngsters, who had only once previously been un der fire, stuck it out and never flinched, though the cost was heavy. "We had to crawl through the mud to get at the place where the trench was to be made," says one of these gallant Engineers, "and we were shelled all the time. Sometimes we would stumble up to our waists in water in the holes made by the big German shells. But we did our bit."
Blinded in the Air. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
Blinded in the Air. With eyesight destroyed by a Ger man shell, and carrying in his ma chine a lieutenant observer wlio was mortally wounded, a French aviation pilot tells a thrilling story of a re connaissance in Flanders. When over the German lines a well-directed shell burst close to them. "Then I saw nothing but blackness all around me," says the pilot. ."Guided by noises below, I turned in the direc tion in which I hoped to meet com rades. But soon a fresh hail of bul lets warned me that we were again above the German lines. Then I re alised that I was blind. 'Are you all right,- lieutenant?' I shouted. 'Seri ously wounded, I fear,' he said. Then, seeing I was turning my back on our lines, he said, 'Make a half-turn to the left. More to the left still. That's right. Straight ahead now.' Three minutes later the voice of the obser ver called, 'That's it. Here we are. I see our men down there waiting for us. Shut off the spark and volplane gently down'; and soon our landing wheels...
Skipton News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
At a meeting of the Progress Associa tion a letter was received from Cr T. Kennedy, a member of the Grenville Shire Council, advocating the severance of the township of Sbipton, with the parishes of Skipton, Borriyalloak, and Galla, from the north riding of Hamp den shire, with a view of constituting the area a riding of the Shire of Grenville. The feeling of the meeting was that at present the Skipton portion of Hampdea shire way not getting as much attention as it" was entitled to, and that Cr. Kennedy's proposal was deserving of consideration. The matter was deferred until next meeting. The following officers were appointed :—President, Mr M. ITotman.; vice-presidents, Messrs A. Angus and M'lutyre ; secretary, Mr A. Wilkie, jun. ; treasurer, Mr M'll vena ; auditors, Messrs F. A. Moore and A. M'Intyre. Mr Earnest Austin, son of Mr E. G.

Wire-Cutting Hero. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
Wire-Cutting Hero. The scene was at a point on the French front south of Arras. "Marcel Forget left the trenches to cut through the barbed-wire entangle ments which the Germans had con structed in front of their lines, and for an hour he labored with his wire cutters, almost under the noses of the Germans. Then a German shell shat tered one of his legs, and, dropping his rifle and wire-cutters, iie crawl ed towards the French trenches, which he ultimately reached more dead than alive. Since then, how ever, Forget has made a marvellous recovery, and is now the proud pos sessor of the Medaille Militaire—the V.C. of France.
Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
It is estimated in London that fnlly 80 per cent, of English motor manufac turing concerns are at present entirely devoted to the manufacture of war material in one form or another. This naturally means a great falling off in the importation of English ipotor cars into this country—in fact, a'well-known Aus tralian member of the Wotor trade, who recently journeyed to Lofidon to try and expedite shipment of the, Yarious cars for which he is agent, cables that first-class cars are not obtainable. It is significant of the state of affairs at home that several of the leading London distributing depots are now devoting their advertising spaces in the motoring journals to the sale of second hand cars; There is little doubt that the scarcity of new cars of leading makes., will establish a good market for well cared second-hand vehicles, but motorists who have a valu able car will be well advised to hang on to it, for its a difficult matter to forecast when our leading motor depots will aga...
