We happened, to be-out for : a stroll in the evening and came I across a crowd of natives who ap peared to be in an excited mood. There were three horsemen gallop ing about in a small ring and 1 thought it was a circus until I was informed it was a fraun (a wedding) so that explained the string o garrcys that were standing by all gaily decorated, and the one whore the bride was seated was all covered in and a guard accompanied it.

PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

PATRIOTISM. (hy M-ivirul:.) Patriot ism is the first principle <jf citzenship, just :ts, in the word* of Samuel Johnson, it "is the last re lume of tlit- scoundrel." Hut there arc different forms of patriotism as there are also different classes of pitriotic speeches, and another does none of these tilings he acts ; which is the better ? Then there is the other form of patriot covered by Dr. Johnson's searching castration as well as more spe.'ies of the same plant. lint for present purposes we will eonline ourselves to the general distinction afforded in the contrast between the merely pro fessed and the wholly practical. Of course it is nice to see one committed to cxluiberance of patriotic sentiment but it is more elevating by far and in finitely more inspiring to witness deeds rather .than listen alone to words that have behind them no action. We have the practical patriot who sheds his blood on the lead-swept battlefield and the pro fessed patriot at home who says tha...

LADIES' LETTER. FASHIONS IN SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 12 August 1915

LADIES' LETTER. FASHIONS IN SPRING. "A breath of Heaven" was how some women described the Spring show at the big city shops this week. The hats and coats and Bkirts were so lovely that women bought as eager Jy as in any previous year. The war was entirely forgotten while they re velled in tlio novelties of the season. If everybody's helping, who is giv ing? One girl who was pressed to help nt. an Australia Day stall at last yielded, but said afterwards, "They'd have got far more out of me hail they not asked me to help. Now I can't go to the matinee, and I can't buy something at every corner as I walk about town." The rule should be, the poor should sell and the rich should buy. And yet I don't know. I noticed a stall which was run by Miss Croe sus, Mrs. Smartset and Mrs. Top notch. On It reposed half-a-dozen worn-out cauliflowers, some pots or marmalade, a bundle of wattlo and a few golliwogs. "Isn't it lovely!" they oxclaimed. "We took £150 before lunch!" Have these ladies such a ...

NEVER MENTION NAMES. Captain Bean has told us all about the famous charge of tho Second Bri gade led by Brigadier-General—(name suppressed by order of the Minister for Defenco). When Senator Pearce was approached with the object of hav ing the order for suppression of offi cers' names rolaxed, he stated that the instruction was his own, that he had no intention of altering or modifying It, and that his reason was that offi cers should not get kudos for any. thing they had done until It was offi cially reported.

Do you think the people of Mysia and district could be per suaded (such has can afford) to give a loaf each. The bread goes to feed the children who are left i:i France and Belgium, J think, without food, and often sufficient covering. The French people here tell me that a private in the French army gets a half-penny a day, so you can well imagine many of the families are pretty well starving, now that the war has gone on a year.
