Sporting Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
— s? By HOTSPUR. Weights for the Caufield and Mel bourne Cnp were declared on Monday last. The war has not so far affected the entries and it is quite likely that the interest in racing will be fairly well kept up throughout. In the Melbourne Cup the top weight is allotted to Ulva's Isle with 9.7, a re sponsible impost for such a good horse. Down the list one notices St. Carwyne 8.3, Kingsburgh 8.0, Aurifer 7.11, and Wallace Isinglass 7.3, as good at this distant stage. In tiie Caufield Cnp, Uncle Sam has top weight with 9.9, 81bs. more than, imposed in the big event, and he has a good chance. Others that read well are Mountain Knight 8.13,. Posinatus 8.5, and Wishing Cap 7.7. On Saturday next the Grand National meeting will be held, and for the present, selection in the Grand National Hurdle I will name Bill Taft or Dinizuhi, and for the Steeple later on Tim Doolan or El Progresso. Final selections for Hurdle Day in next issue.
Saved the Ship. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
Saved the Shin. One of the bravest of the deeds which stand out in the battle of the Falkland Islands, when Admiral Stur dee smashed the German fleet, was that of Sergeant Charles Mayes, of H.M.S. Kent. It was during the hot test part of the fight that a shell burst on the Kent and ignited some cordite charges in what is known as the casemate. A flash of flame imme diately went down the hoist into the ammunition passage. Sergeant Mayes at once picked up a charge of cordite, which might have blown the ship to pieces, and threw it away. He then got hold of a fire-hose and flood ed the compartment, extinguishing the fire in some empty shell-bags which were burning, the extinction of this fire ' saving a disaster which | might have led to the loss of the ship.

THE PRODIGAL SON, V.C.j A WAR STORY IN WHICH A SERGEANT OF THE R.F.A. PLAYS THE TITLE ROLE. By Ottwell Binns. I. The station was crowded witli troops, British Tommies in facetious mood, who were trying, on every one who looked in the least French, strange scraps of language picked up from phrase-books since leaving Eng land. "Oh, I say there, commencer la ma chine!" (start the engine). "Can't, old man," shouted an^ an swering voice, "it's got un pneu!" (a puncture). "Donnez-moi un billet- pour" (Give me a ticket for ) "Berlin!" yelled a score of voices. A roar of laughter went up, in which joined three Red Cross nurses, who were standing near -watching the scene with bright eyes. "Aren't they fine fellows'?" said one. "Nothing daunts them, not even a strange tongue." "Yes, Mary, and there's a particu larly fine fellow there—that tall ser geant, I mean, over there on the right.'' The nurse so addressed turned to look at the sergeant, and as he hap pened to swing round at the .moment,...
Three Brave Englishwomen. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
Three Brave Englishwomen. A graphic picture of the heroism of English nurses is provided by the correspondent of a Swiss paper, who has been permitted to visit the ■ French lines. "The bombardment j was in full1" swing," he writes, ' when I saw a wounded man on a stretcher being received tenderly by three •, young Englishwomen of the Red 1 Cross in their 'hospital,' which con- , sisted of a roofless house, whose walls &lt; looked like a sieve, so many shells i had passed through them. "It was a curious tableau, these young women deliberately choosing to live ki this inferno to aid the poor wounded. At. nearly every instant they risked' death, and shells seemed to be their j daily bread. How many among us would do as much?"
AMBASSADORS PRIVILEGES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
AMBASSADORS PRIVILEGES. A curious Ambassadorial privilege is that, when dismissed from an au dience with the Sovereign to which he is accredited, an Ambassador may turn his back to the Court. In this relation it should be added that an I Ambassador is the representative of his ruler, while a Minister is the re presentative of his country. When the audience is concluded, the Ambassador abroad waits to be dismissed by the Sovereign. When dismissed, the Ambassador bows, re tires three paces, bows again, retires three paces, bows a third time, turns on his heels, and walks to the folding doors. But when the reigning Sove reign is a woman, a more polite me thod is employed. The Ambassador therefore retires sideways. He keeps one side on the . Sovereign, and with the other manages to find the door. By this unique means he contrives to show all politeness to a Sovereign and at the same time to retain his Ambassadorial privilege in retiring. Another privilege of an Ambassa dor abroad is tha...
FROM THE FIRING LINE. Capturing a Flag. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
FROM THE FIRING LINE. Capturing a Flag. A tattered, shot-torn bit of bunting hangs in tlie headquarters of the Lon don Rifle Brigade, as a glorious me mento of the bravery of Corporal T. H. 'Jeriken, of the 1st Battalion. This flag, which is believed to be the first German flag captured by a member of the Territorial Force in the war, flew defiantly over .a certain German trench when, in the early hours of the morning of February 26, under cover of a mist, Corporal Jenken, with his patrol, went out to inspect some German sniping pits. While the patrol returned with one of their wounded, the corporal reached the flag, which was planted some twenty yards in frout of the German barbed wire. Snatching it up, he crawled back again to the British trenches, a distance of 280 yards, under the en emy's fire from rifle and machine guns," and escaped being hit, to the great delight of his comrades.

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
On Saturday Berringa and Scarsdala met for the second time this season in connection with the district association, on the ground of the former, and as the inclement weather prevented an early start, the last quarter was played in semi-darkness. Berringa were victorious by the largo majority of 39 points, the final scores being :—-Berringa, 5 goals 10 behinds to 1 behind. The visitors put np good defence, but superior play by the home team made it difficult for auy counter-attack by their opponents. Every man was worthy of his place in the Berringa team, although Rachinger, (captain), Hayes, O'Brien, Anderson, and J. Stapleton may be mentioned for being most conspicuous ; and Gleeson (captain), Anderson, Perry, Butter worth, Evans, and W. Trafford were the shining lights of the Scarsdale team. The game was umpired by Mr A Taylor, iu his usul satisfactory style. The Linton footballers visited Skipton on Saturday, and beat the local team by 2 goals 10 behinds to 2 behinds. The goal-ki...

EASILY EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
EASILY EXPLAINED. Buffon, the great naturalist, one day entertained a company of distin guished savants at dinner, at the con clusion of which they all went into the garden. It was a very hot sum mer's day. In the centre of the grounds there stood on a pedestal a large glass globe, which one of the guests happened to touch with his hand, when he found, to his astonish ment, that it was warmer on the shady side than on the side turned towards the sun. He communicated his discov ery to the other guests, who at once proceeded to verify the statement. What could be the cause? An ani mated discussion ensued, in the course - of which every imaginable law of phy sics was made to account for the strange paradox. At length the scientists agreed that ' it must be so owing to the laws of re I flection, repulsion, or exhalation, or I some other law of physics with a long name. The host was, however, not quite convinced, and, calling his gar dener, he said to him:— "Pray tell us why the globe is...
Mining News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
At the Scarsdale mine they have started sinking a winze 100 feet north of the crosscut at the 275 feet level. It is down 5 feet on a fall sink of stone, worth from 3^ dwts. to 4 dwts; per ton. The rise , at this level has been holed through to the 200 feet workings. On this rise the north intermediate drive has beeh' Vdvtfnced to 63 feet, on 3' feet of payable stone. The average width of ore in the stopes varies from 3^ feet to 4 feet wide. The 1100 feet crosscut at the New Jabillee has1 been driven 24 feet for the week, total 333 feet. The country is slate and sandstone. Stoping is carried on over the 900 feet on the eastern and western formations, where it is estimated that the reserves of ore in sight will keep the mill going for another month, by which time the lode should be met with at the bottom level. Treated 825 tons for 68 ozs. smelted gold. After three weeks' experience with the Belgian army (writes a war corres pondent) I give a reliable bicycle the palm over horses or m...
CHAPTER XXIII. At the Pantry Window. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
CHAPTER XXIII. At the Pantry Window. That evening George Conway went over to the small neighboring town of Crandon to take part in a political meeting of some local importance. He drove alone, in a dog-cart, the af fair, as he said, being scarcely im portant enough to warrant his taking a party with him. 1 "It will be an uncomfortable gath ering in a schoolroom, probably very crowded and stuffy, and utterly bor ing. Merivale is to make a long speech—it is sure to be long as well as platitudinous. He is a good fel low, but a bore of the first water. Then a number of local tradesmen are to have a say, and we know what that means; not very exhilarating. I shall just say a few words, and get away, if possible, before the affair is offer. These local wind-bags never know when to stop." So it was settled that George should drive himself over, and he would -get back as early as possible. The night was dark but fine. He soon bowled over the five miles be tween Westford and Crandon, put up h...
GAS IN THE STOMACH IS DANGEROUS. PHYSICIANS RECOMMEND THE USE OF MAGNESIA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
GAS IN THE STOMACH IS DANGEROUS. o PHYSICIANS RECOMMEND THE USE OF MAGNESIA. Sufferers from indigestion or dyspep sia should remember that the presence of gas or wind in "the stomach invariably indicates that the stomach is troubled by excessive acidity. This acid causes the food to ferment and the fermenting food in turn gives rise to noxious gases which distend the stomach, hamper the normal functions of vital internal organs, cause acute head aches, interfere with the action of the heart, and charge the blood stream with deadly poisons, which in time must ruin the health. Physicians say that to quickly dispel a dangerous accumulation of wind in the stomach and to stop the food fermentation which creates the gas, the acid in the stomach must be neu tralised, and that for this purpose there is nothing qnite so good- as half a tea spoonful of pure 5/«uraf«2rmngne3ia taken in a little water immediately after meals. This instantly neutralises jjie acid, thus stopping fermentation and ...

BLIND BRITISH HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
BLIND BRITISH HEROESU There are now nearly fifty British soldiers, including three officers, who have lost their sight in the war, and there are also in England three sight less Belgian soldiers, while from the. British Navy there is one blinded sailor—a midshipman. Sightless soldiers and sailors will be riven preliminary instruction at St. Dunstan's Hostel, Regent's Park, in carpentry, boot-repairing, mat-mak ing, basket-making, telephone oper ating, massage, poultry farming, mar ket gardening—opening a good indus trial field for their future. A romantic attachment, expected to culminate in matrimony between a leading society girl and a merchant's beauteous son, a few weeks since high ly interested the elect. The tea-table tattlers believed that such a union of cash, love and good looks would be perfect. One evening the young man visited his adored, and solemnly in formed her that he intenaed to act the part of a man—and enlist. Certain it is that she became hysterical, and beg ged...
FOR THE FARMER. THE CONSERVATION OF FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
FOR THE FARMER. THE CONSERVATION OF FODDER. If we were only to think of the present there would be no need for a discussion on the subject of the pre servation of fodder (writes Mr. Dun can McLennan, vice-president of the Victorian Chamber of Agriculture). The recollection of most people is all too acute of the disastrous period through which we have just passed, and it may be taken for granted that resolutions frequent and positive have been made by those who have suffer j ed never to be caught napping again. The experience of the past, however, teaches us that these resolutions re semble very much the penitential vows of the Bacchanalian reveller, who, when racked with remorse in recovering from his orgy, solemnly, and at times profanely, declares that never- again will he look on the wine when it is red or any other color. But these, at the time genuine and sol emn resolves, seem to disappear like the morning dew before the rising sun when the next "thirst" comes along. The known...
CHAPTER XXII. The End in Sight. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 26 June 1915
CHAPTER XXII. The End in Sight. ) Next morning Mrs. Conway sent down to tlie White Lion to inquire how the injured lady was progress ing. It was naturally the least she, as a well-bred woman, could do, al though strongly resenting what she alluded to as this provoking foreign contretemps, which had so upset ter ribly her Easter party. Had she not been so gratified by the complete suc cess of her scheme to bring about George's engagement to the heiress, she would have given him a very un pleasant time in connection with the affair. As it was, she could not re frain from dwelling reproachfully on the fact that the whole business, the tragedy and its outrageous supple ment, could never have happened if George had not so foolishly insisted upon the invitation to Countess Mor-, nay. "One is never sure of these foreign ers," she declared, secure in her jus tification by results. "Their ways are not our ways. Beyond being civil to ambassadors and people who really do count, I never trouble...

The Cloak of Darkness By SIR WILLIAM MAGNAY, Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved.' CHARTER XXI. The Inscrutable Rolt. Next moment the man had disap peared from the window . into the darkness outside. Madame Zarnow,' with a cry for help, had staggered back, clutching her arm. Then, quickly recovering her presence of mind, she rushed to the door and flung it open, meeting Derman Con way, followed by George, who were hurrying to the room. "I have been shot," she announced with cool resentment in answer to their question as to what was the matter. "Shot? By whom?" Derman cried. "By a man who opened the window and fired twice at me," she replied in the same sell-possessed tone. By this time the men-servants had appeared on the scene, and Mrs. Con way had come from the drawing room. "Shot by a man? In here?" George Conway went quickly into the study and ran to the window. "There is no one here now," he said to .Der man, wlio ha...
