Korong Vale Red Cross. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

Korong Vale Red Cross. Mrs Butt, of Korong Ya'.e, wishes to thank all those who so kindly helped her to collect sugar bags, especially the school children. One hundred and eight bags were des patched last week, and have been gratefully acknowledged by the Lady Mayoress and her committee. Mrs Butt is still collecting, and hopes, with the help of the residents, to send another instalment of 100 shortly. Will anyone having bags, or even a bag, please send it to the Bank of Australasia as soon as pos sible. Rice and salt bags are very acceptable too, although not used for sandbags, but the men in the trenches have a thousand uses for them. About 2,000 bags are pre pared daily at the town hall, Mel bourne, so that there are now 20,000 ready to be despatched at an early date. Of course this is but a drop in the ocean, and it is hoped that all who arc able to help will immediately do so, thereby providing that assistance which will help to save our soldiers' lives.

Handling the Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

Handling the Wheat. The scheme adopted by the Federal and State Governments for handling the harvest is being freely discussed, and, considering abnor mal and unprecedented conditions, appears to be favorably received. The estimates all indicate that this I harvest in Australia -will be one of the biggest on record. In Victoria it is expected that the yield will j total 45,000,000 bushels, and it is computed that 35,000,000 will be available for exportation. To successfully handle this great sur plus governmental action was neces sary to assist the producer finan cially, and to arrange for the char tering of vessels and the sale of ex port cargoes to European markets It is recognised that the most serious trouble will be the scarcity,, of freight in view of the fact that 25 per cent, of the world's shipping tonnage is either locked up in enemy ports, or at the bottom of the sea. In addition many vessels have been requisitioned by the Admiralitj for transport and other purposes. The ...

NORTHERN DISTRICT STANDARD with which is incorporated the Boort Standard, Koroni; Vale Lancc. and Quam batook Herald. Interesting rending matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, November 18. A Golden Opportunity. In the Federal arena, Libor, led by Mr Hughes, is effecting a mas terly retreat to escape defeat ; in the State Parliament the Peacock Minis try has been reconstructed. So Victorian Liberalism has a golden opportunity. The Commonwealth ami live of the States are dominated by Labor, it is for Victoria to show them the better way. It has to be confessed that up to this the doings of the Peacock Ministry, of the great Liberal majority returned last year, have been disappointing. The sections into which the represen tatives of tae people divided them selves may have been animated by sincere conviction, but it is well to say bluntly that, to mei and women following the fortunes of Greater Britain and giving little time to the details of State politics, their quarrels h...

NOT WORTH WHILE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

NOT WORTH WHILE. "The night of death will soon de scend; a few short years, nnd then the will, anil perfect rest is ours; for gotten by the busy throng. we'll sleep, while seasons roll along, beneath the grass and flowers Our sojourn In this world Is brief, so why go hunting : care and grief, why have a troubled mind? And what's the use of getting mad and making folks around ua sad ! by saying words unkind? Why not abjure the base and mean, why not be sunny and serene, from spite and envy free? Why not be happy while we may and make our little earthly stay a joyous jamboree? We'ro here for such a little while! And then we go and leave the pile for which we strive and strain; worn out and bro ken by the grind we go and leave our wads behind—such effort's all in vain. We break our hearts and twist our souls acquiring largo and useless rolls of coins and kindred things: and when we reach St. Peter's Town they will not buy a sheet-iron crown or cast off pair of wings."—Walt Mason in Hor...

WHERE COURAGE LIES. Married Woman, writing to tho j papors, says stoo lias small respect for those women who have any patience 1 with tl eir husbands in pleading mar rlago as an excuso for not enlisting. "My husband went with the first—I saw to that," she aays. 1 knew him as a mildlsli man, A packer up at Hankin's mill. To war his timid comments ran— lie thought it horrible to plan One's harmless fellow men to kill. I saw him Thursday, khaki-clad; A rifle at his side boro ho; His aspect, though not wholly glad. Was not as sheepish nor as sad As In thoso days 'twas wont to be. "You thought you were not game, I know. Yet here you are," I paused to say. "I'm married since," he said, "and so I'm going; but I wouldn't go If I wiu gamo enough to stay!" —Silas Snel! in the "Bulletin."

In a Friendly Sort o' Way. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 18 November 1915

In a Friendly Sort o* Way. When n man ain't got a penny, an' he's feeling kind o' blue. An' tbe cloudB hang dark an' heavy, an' ■won't let the 6un8hine through, It's a great thing, oh, my brethren, for a feller just to lay His hand upon your shoulder In a friendly sort p' way. It makes a man feel curious; it makes the teardrops start, An' you feel a sort of flutter in the region of the heart; You can't look up and meet his eyes; you don't know what to Bay When his hand is on your shoulder In I a friendly sort o' way. Oh, the world's a curious compound, with its honey and Us gall, With its care and bitter crosses, but a good world after all; An' a good God must have made it— leastways that is what I say, When a hand is on my shoulder in a friendly Bort o' way. William's uncle was a very tall, fine-looking man, while his father was very small. William admired his uncle and wished to grow up like him. One day he said to his mother: "Mamma, how did uncle grow so big and tall?" His mothe...

LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, September 25. 191R: I find difficulty this week in writing say usual budget of London experi ences. Since my last letter I have been spending some days with a part of the British Expeditionary Force In Belgium. I recall tho spectacles in the trenches and the tragedy of the ruined and battered cities, such as Ypres. To come back to the compara tive calm of London requires an ef fort. I do not propose to describe here my recent experiences beyond saying this—I was moved by the spec tacle of multitudes of men drawn not. alone from every part of the United Kingdom, but from Greater Britain and India, one and all inspired by the greatness and glory of their task. As I stood in the trenches, with the ping of bullets of the snipers constant ly heard, with the occasional rattling beats of the machine guns, with the steady artillery duels continuing all along our lines, and with battles in the air which drew men even out of tbeir dug-outs to witness th...

The Congregation Smiled. During a match with one of tho London Universities, In which tho late Dr. \V. G.

Now, It happened that on that par ticular day Dr. Grace had not been in Rood form at all—in fact, he had made a very poor show in each in nings. By an extraordinary coinci dence the concluding hymn at the service was No. 28 in "IlymnB An cient and Modern," and tho streas that the choir laid on the line—"Tho scanty triumphs grace hath won," made most of the congregation smile, Including the great cricketer hlm t-e! f.

EXCHANGE OF PRISONERS PATHETIC 8CENE8. (From tlie "Svenska Dagbladet".) When Russia and Gormany made an agreement about a mutual exchange of altogether Incapacitated prisoners of war, it was decided to lot tho Red Cross organisation attend to all tho necessary .arrangements for tho trans portation of these men to their homo countries, by way of Sweden. The first batch of Russian prisoners from Germany arrived on board tho steam ship Aeolus, in the llttlo Swodlsh city of Trelleborg, on August 12. Trelle borg, situated on tho southern coast of Sweden, almost opposite tho Ger man city of Sassnitz, had seen num bers of Russians enter its harbor once before during this war. That was soon after tho opening of hostilities, when Russian refugees by the hundreds were leaving Gormany for their own coun try over the only route available to them, the steam ferry between Sass nitz and Trelleborg.

(THROUGH THE FURNACE HE EMERGED A MAN. HOW ANDY TYPIFIED AUSTRALIA (By. E. H. Browor.) Fromantle, Saturday. Andy II tumbled iuto the Great War because Novelty beckoned him. Down on his widow mother's dairy in the sou'-west of Western Austra lia Uo suddenly grew tired of cows and pigs, and he itched to hold a rifle and to kill. Not that he was blood thirsty—far from it. He was 10, and ho had large, sinewy limbs on him, like the legs of the calves ho tended. Racing hot in his veins was tho blood of untried, exuberant youth. He was always in mischief. "Andy! Andy!" said his mother one day as she shook her head despondent ly over one of his escapades. "You'll be the death of me some day." But he harmed no one; ho was as tender-hearted as a -woman. Once, after he had galloped madly for miles through the fresh autumn morning, he looked at the spur marks on his horse's flanks, and tho tears filled his eves. There was rich, red blood to let in him. That was why his whole being ached for the...
