EMPIRE'S FUEL OIL SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 11 September 1914
EMPIRE'S FUEL OIL SUPPLY. The fuel oil -supply available, in England is very limited, as although the oilfields of Russia, Roumania and Galicia are worked largely with British capital, we get but little fuel oil from these sources, and if we did the closing of the 'Dardanelles would cut off the supply. At present our chief sources of supply are the East and America; and `if .the Empire is to maintain her supremacy on the sea it behoves 'us to develop. the oilfields of the :Einmiire as°.iapidly as possible in ordei:i that Cainada,- New Zealand, Aiustralia aid .the West Indies may aid India in supplying fuel oil for naval purposes, and add to the large quantities that will probably be avail able-from Mexico." ' " .Tliese- significant.t words were penned only a few months since ;by no less eminent an authority than Pro fessor Vivian 'B. Lewes, F.I.C., F.C.S., in his important work, "Oil Fuel." They reveal plainly the neces sity'of following up every possible in dication of-the presence...

GALA AND FETE, OCTOBER 3rd. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
CALA AND FETE, OCTO BER 3rd. The citizens'. comniittee of the Hawthorn :City Banrd are -filly justi fled in the appeal they- are making for funds to send the local band to the Ballarat competitions next month, first, on account of the successes gained by its members at the A.N.A. and five other contests durng the past fifteen hinonths, and .also on account of the large amount of voluntary work done by the band for charitable objects in the Eastern Suburbs.

The Hawthorn Cup is to be competed-for by wvell-trained goats over a distance of seven fur longs and a bif,` and as already about nine of these stubborn animals (in cluding the viwiner of the Wanga ratta .Shield), have been entered, a great deal of excitement and amuse ment is-promised.

The War in Europe Greatest Event In World's History. Local Lads Leaving for the Front. Whole-hearted Women Working Without Weariness. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
The War in Europe Greatest Event In World's History. Local Lads Leaving for the Front. Wholechearted Women Working Without Weariness; To the present generation has been given the.experience of taking part in or watching the greatest and most death-dealing war the world has ever seen. In about five weeks over three millions of men have been called into the battlefield, with the accompani ment of horses, waggons, accoutre ments, and guns of many kinds, sizes, ranges, and efficiency. Cities have been ransacked and devastated, towns have been burnt, valuable works of art, which have taken cen turies to collect, have been ruthlessly destroyed, magnificent spec;mens of architecture hale been demolished, and the most ghastly and horrible sights have been witnessed. When all the descriptive powers of eye-wit nesses have failed, it has been the custom to exclaim: " War is hell!"

WAS'T'J NOT, WANT. NOT. Nowhere is the prodigality ,t ycuth more conspicuous thllan in the waste of affection mnd h?l::pinsess. When young .and sur counded-by friends, we treat affection in r scornful way, as if it could never cease t .:Tw to us. When it does cea p, we lor ac.-ek with sorrowful wonder at our foil The old home is broken up which we di nit care to visit until too late. " w tlh. warmest welcome we get anywh b at a, inno The caress which we took matty1 ! counrse, if we did not rejeot it, i. o. lonker proffered. We wasted affection, and now ye want it. We cared for no one, and vrw no one cares for us.

About Chloroforming. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
About Chloro0!'oming. The statement that -shen a handker?. chief is throvwn over a man'e head he immcdiately goes into a uranee is inter esting, and raises a curious point. There are many lawyers who are wont to declare that the evidence given from time to time at criminal trials leaves no doubt that there exists some drug which, when spread upon a cloth and placed cver the.nose and mouth, immediate:y produces unconsciousness. On the other hand, chemists assert that the thing is an impossibility, and that no snuch compound has ever been discov ered. Chloroform and the other recognized anucsthetics require at least three dis tinct inhalations to produce the loss of sensation. To reconcile this conflict of testimony se~rs impossible, unless, in. deed, we adopt the sensational theor that some camorra among the crimninal classes s is possession of a trade secret as yet unknown to science. Probably however,; this notion is too fantastic, and we would rather incline to the sup position th...
