Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 17 July 1915
H0WTOECONOMISE IN DRINKS Take a bottle of *Whisky and a bottle of O.T. and blend the two together you will then have the same number of drinks as in 2 bottles of Whisky, but you will save over 3/-, thus: 2 bottles of Whisky - - give 32 drinks - cost 10/ 1 bottle of Whisky blended, give 32 drinks - cost 6/6 1 bottle of 0T.7 * Or other Spirits Approximate Saving - 3/6 Equal quantities of Whisky and O.T. make A LIGHT TSPIRIT as against Pure Whisky, which is of greater alcoholic strength. The blend is weaker in intoxicating effects because only half the Whisky usually drunk is contained in each nobbler of the blend. Nothing is lost by this reduction of spirit, because the effect and satisfaction are made up by the charm and bite of the O.T. A similar result could not be achieved by, water, because over-dilution by water would make Whisky insipid. Just as there are Light Wines and Light Beers, so here is the way to have Light Spirits. Take advantage of this charming and least harmful way...

There was a very large attendance of parents and other adults at the local school on Monday afternoon last, who agsembled for the purpose of wishing the head teacher, Mr. A. D., Hollyhoke (who goes into camp on Friday) God-speed and a safe re turn. One could see at a glance the sorrow that was felt by all-from the youngest to the oldest pupil on the one hand, to the gravest parent on the other-at losing Mr. Hollyhoke's services. And while many fully ad mitted this, they in turn congratu lated him on 'having the 'grit and determination to assist the Empire even to the extent of his life-in the present struggle. Right through the proceedings- which lasted the greater part of the afternoon-a ring of patriotism was manifest, and the urgent need for prompt recruiting was clearly made apparent to all.

THE PRICE OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 17 July 1915
THE PRICE OF WAR. The cold light of morning breaks forth o'er the ridge, as the note of reveille is blown.. Calling the flower of Australia's sons to arise, and fight for its o'wn. Away in the distance, the Turkish line, by the grey dawn lies.re vealed. As it marshals its men in extended line, with .the weapons it soon must wield. No craven heart can the guerdon claim, in the impact of deadly strife, Where heroes fall; and the line is gapped, and. courage alone saves life. The mighty shells of the dug-iniguns and the mortar's rasping boom, Through clouds of smoke, with tongues of fire, they penetrate the gloom. Deal death and suffering to many a one of the hidden foemen there. Regardless of the aching hearts, and the sister's whispered prayer. With the ceaseless rattle of. rifle fire, the bullets fall like rain, And the heaps of'slain on every side mark its deadly train. All kinds and classes have kindred there, together to stand or fall, And a spirit of brotherhood has a place of p...
