Another Luxury. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

Another Luxury. Payton: We'hear a great deal late ly about the high cost of living and loving. Parker: Yes, and the high cost of loafing ought not to, he sneezed at either. The customer in the grocery shop, having ruined his clothes, was very indignant. "Didn't you see the sign, 'Fresh paint'?" asked the grocer. "Of course, I did!" snapped the cus tomer. "But I've seen so many signs up here, announcing something fresh which wasn't, that I did not helieve it." The man who is' always wondering what the neighbors think of him would be surprised sometimes to know that they seldom think of him at all. Mr. Justice Sankey has been talk- : ing about putting a bar on alcohol, : but the more convenient plan, from : the drinker's point of view, is to put ' alcohol on the bar. Sir Edwin Pears confesses that he i "knows the Dardanelles from end to ; end." Well, we all know a good deal i more about them now than we learn ed at school. - The ideal husband exists chiefly in the minds of women who n...

Patriotic Relief Funds. LINTON CONTRIBUTIONS. TOTAL TO DATE, £82 13s 6d. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

LINTON CONTRIBUTIONS. TOTAL TO DATE, £82 13s 6d. Since collecting started in Linton, the hon. secretary (Mr E. D. Hitchins) has received a total of £82 138 6d from the Linton collect-: ors. At this rate it should not be long before the century is passed. In last month's list of contributions to the Belgian Relief Fund, the name of Mrs Todd was omitted -from the 2/6 column. The name was missed in transcribing the list for the printer. The omission did not afiect the total, which is correct a3 it stands. The collections for June amount to £5/18/6 for the Belgian Fund and £4/11/ for the Red Cross Fund. As there is some uncertainty as. to the meaning of the Red Cro3S Fund, it may be explained that the Red Cross Society un dertakes the daty of providing for our Bick and wounded soidiers, whether at home or 1 abroad, such additional hospital necessaries and comforts as are not supplied by the Gov ernment. The Red Cross also collects and distributes gifts in kind for the sick and wounded. ...

Slight Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

Slight Mistake. The soldier of four months was re counting his experience of "living on the country" in an eastern county of England. He and a comrade had been despatched with a motor-car to perform a certain mission. After travelling a considerable distance, they sighted an inn-sign and, running the car into the yard at tiie rear, alighted and entered by a back door. A picturesque dame appeared, to whom the bluff and hearty spokesman said : "Now, mother, is there anything to eat?" "Well, you can have some nice cold beef, and if you like to wait half-an hour I'll cook you some potatoes and a cauliflower." "Ah! Worth waiting for, that is, mother! Right-o!" said the soldier. She smiled approvingly, and told them to go into her own parlor. In due course they were bidden to the feast, over which they were glad to have her preside, for she talked very entertainingly. Eventually the spokesman broached the question of payment. "Now, then, mother, how much do we owe you, please?" "Oh, nothi...

Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, foi transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, JULY 3, 1915. At Thursday's meeting of the Gren villeshire Council,--a letter from the State Parliamentary Recruiting Committee, asking co-operation in obtaining more men for the front, gave rise to some strongly expressed views on the hesita tion shown by many young men who I ought to be with the colors. Cr Yaughan was even inclined to move a motion that the Council declare itself in favor of con scription. Cr Wallis said he also fav ored conscription, but thought the time had not yet arrived for such a drastic method of swelling the forees at the front. President Kennedy said that a motion similar to that suggested by Cr Vaughan had actually been moved at one council, but had been ruled out of order, as it ...

ROTHSCHILD'S WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

ROTHSCHILD'S WAY. In the year 1847, "when the alarm ists predicted a general European War, a great statesman, well known to be nervous, rushed into Baron Rothschild's office in a state of great agitation. He said: "We are going to have a war, a terrible war." The financier, who was writing at his desk, without lifting his head or looking up, replied: "No; we shall not have war." "But it is inevitable," continued the statesman, growing more and more excited by reason of the Baron's cool ness. "I have just seen three mem bers of the Cabinet who assure me that war will be declared within a week." "No," replied Rothschild; "there is not going to be any war. I won't let them have the money."

YOUR NAME. A Call to Every Fit Man. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

| . YOUR NAME. A Call to Every Fit Man. When the lockfast book is opened and the thrilling tale is told Of our heroes o'er the Channel where the battle-tide has rolled, Humble names will shine xwith glory t golden-huod in fame's bright glare— Tell me, when we read the story, will your name be written there? When the deeds of pal and brother echo loud from shore to shore, Will you feel, like many another, sick at heart and conscience-sore, Knowing that you shirked your duty, paid no heed to country's call; Theirs the honor and the glory, yours the wormwood and the gall? Too late then to don the khaki, too late then to wear the blue; Now's the time to grasp the sword hilt if to manhood you'd be true. Sweep aside that paltry hindrance, be a Briton, play the man! Sign to-day the roll of honor, volun teer while yet you can. ' Let the sneering, craven scoffer live his little, useless life; There's no room for slimy reptiles in the British Lion's strife. No!

CHAPTER XXV. What "Mr. Johnson" Added. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

CHAPTER XXV. What "Mr. Johnson" Added. For a long time after his visitor's departure, George Conway sat at his desk in a brooding attitude. To judge by. his face his thoughts were perplexing enough, although once or twice he smiled—it was rather the smile of a man at another's mistake, of a chess-player at his adversary's weak move. Presently, he looked up with something of a start as the. win dow was suddenly darkened by some one outside. Then the frown into which he had been startled changed to a smile as hie saw Rosamund Stao burgh standing there. In a moment he had opened the French window and she came a .little way into the room. "Are you very busy, George, or can you come for a stroll before lunch eon? So your tiresome visitor has gone at last. It is a shame to be kept in this lovely day." He drew her to him for a kiss. "Yes," he said, "the woman is ra ther a nuisance; but, thank good ness, she has gone at last, and, I hope, for good. I am so glad you routed me out, Rosa. \,Th...

"I hope I am safe in coming by daylight," she remarked dryly, as he rose to receive her. "I hope so," ne responded. "Al though, as no doubt you have heard, the man who attempted your life was seen here last evening." "So I am told," she replied, with quiet indifference. "But I am not afraid." Conway expressed a hope that his visitor was now feeling no ill-effects of her injury. "Nothing to speak of," she answer •ed, with a suggestion, in her manner i of brushing the subject aside. "It | was not serious, and the doctor is i quite satisfied. I return to London , to-day." | "And you wished to see me-first?" ...

COUNT ZEPPELIN'S FAILURE. How He "Pulled the Kaiser's Leg." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

COUNT ZEPPELIN'S VAIUURE. How He "Pulle,d the Kaiser's Leg." j It would be very interesting to know what the Kaiser now thinks of Count Zeppelin, the wreckage of whose J airships is lying in various parts of Europe, for the Count has completely 1 fooled the War Lord. Germany's Zep pelins are now the laughing-stock of Europe; yet a few years ago, when the Kaiser befriended their impecuni ous inventor, he fondly believed that he had discovered a genius who would give his country complete mastery of the air. The fact that a foreign nation was endeavoring to secure Count Zeppe lin's invention aroused the Kaiser's interest in the old soldier's schemes. Rather than a German secret should be sold to a foreign power, the Kaiser arranged for a State lottery to be held, the profits from which were handed over to the penniless Count, who had spent all his money and smashed every one of his airships. More Zeppelins were built, and they were as frequently destroyed in acci dents, but their inven...

CHAPTER XXVI. And What Rolt Superadded. I . "Bjc all jneans;" Conway assented, as lie shuf the door and returned to 'his seat. "Ah, you were going to tell me about the affair last night?" he added suggestively. "Yes," Rait answered. "But first of all with reference to what has just passed between you and Mr. Stein marck." "Yes," Conway murmured expect antly. • . "Do I understand," Rolt proceeded, "that if this tragedy had not happen ed, it was your intention to go through a second r.nd public marriage with the lady whom I must now call :Mrs. Conway, by that means acknow ledging her as your wife, and to en ter upon a renewed state of married life?" • "Most certainly," was the ready an swer. "That would have happened .sooner or later. The^ only difficulty in the way of the accomplishment of my desire was a rather strenuous op position from my step-mother, Mrs. Conway, who, of course, ignorant of 'the fact that we were actually mar-' ried, considered the match , would be a mistake."

THE FUNNY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

THE FUNNY MAN. j William Widger, at his desk in the -•"Home Record" office, paused one morning in the exercise of preparing the humorous column, and groaned gently, bur with unmistakable earnest ness. Perkins, at the adjoining desk, look ed at him in amazement. Never be fore, during his two years of profes sional contiguity to Widger, had he observed a similar demonstration. iHe mentioned the fact at once. "It is nothing," said Widger; "that is, it is nothing serious. I came near writing a real poem instead of a jin gle, that is all." - --I call that rather serious," said Perkins. "Heavens! Billy, you must go slow. You're on the verge of some thing. A chap of your talent cannot rbe too careful." "So?" , said Widger, lazily. "You make me weary, Perk.

EXPLAINING THE WAR. GUNS AND HOWITZERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

EXPLAINING THE WAR. GUNS AND HOWITZERS. Seven different kinds of artillery i are taken into tlie field by most of the armies now engaged in the Great War—mountain, horse, and field guns, light and heavy howitzers, position ; guns and siege artillery. The moun tain gun is a small and light weapon, which , can usually be taken to pieces and can be moved forward in sec tions by men. An excellent little gun of this kind accompanies the French chasseurs alpins, and has been em ployed in the fighting for the Hart mannsweilerkopf. It fires a shell weighing about 121b., and is very handy and serviceable. In the British Army the horse artil lery gun is a 13-pounder, generally similar to the British field gun, but lighter and smaller. The most famous of the European field guns is the French "75" (75 millimetre or 3in. weapon). Its spe cial excellence lies in its recoil ar rangements. All modern field guns ; are placed on carriages which are so designed as to absorb the shock .-of recoil witho...

THE DUPE. A Drama in which every actor wore a mask of secrecy and a woman failed in her part. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 July 1915

THE DUPE. A Drama rn which every actor wore a mask of secrecy and a woman failed in her part. By Catherine M. Kerr. On a wild, wet night, when excep tionally few passengers were ci'ossing by the Dover - Calais boat, a man, early aboard and apparently indiffer ent to the raging of the elements around him, stood and watched late comers ascending the gangway. Among them were two women, ob viously mistress and maid. Upon the former , the watcher bestowed but a cursory glance, but the latter'# extra ordinary beauty attracted his notice, indifferent to women as he was at all times. "Such beauty in the garb of servitude!" was the thought which flashed across his mind as he moved away. .. ■ ' . Five years later Julian Fayne— wealthy, and a so-called misogynist— was seated over a solitary breakfast, with the newspaper propped up at a convenient angle before him. Most of his attention was fixed upon the pictured face' of a remarkably beauti-. ful society woman which had appeared in that morni...

SHOT AT DAWN CONDEMNED SOLDIER'S TRAGIC FAREWELL. We need no reminder as to tlie su preme importance - of discipline, but in tlie administration of military law, as in tliat of civil justice, there are oc casions when claims of mercy should not go unheeded. There is something inexpressibly pathetic about the fol lowing letter received by the wife of a private in France.— "My Dearest Wife and Kiddies,— Just a few lines in answer to your lov ing letter I received quite safe.
