Meeting All Expectations. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

Me.eting All Expectations. One evening the young minister, who had seemed rather attracted by "Big Sister" Grace, was dining with the family. "Little Sister" was talk ing rapidly when, the visitor was abotit to ask the blessiDg. Turning to the child he said in a tone of mild reproof: "Laura, I am going to ask grace." "Well, it's about time," answered "Little Sister" in an equally reproving tone. "We've been expecting you to do it for a year, and she has too." It is reported that since, the out break of war no inmate of Tooting Bee Asylum has imagined himself to be the Kaiser. The All-Highest is evi dently far too mad for the average madman. According to an Edinburgh special ist, however, one of the patients at Morningside is not so particular. He must be a frightfully bad case! Mistress (indignantly): Jane, whatever did you mean by wearing my low-necked evening dress at the 'bus-drivers' ball last night? Really, you ought to have been ashamed of yourself! Jane (meekly): I was, mum. ...

All On the Shelf. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

All On the Shelf. They were tiie only occupants of a railway carriage, with a long non stop run before them, so naturally they had entered into conversation. One of them—he of the long locks and the soft dreamy eyes—had been speaking of the joys and beauties of domestic happiness. "You have a daughter, perhaps, sir?" he asked. The other was strangely affected for some reason or other. "I beg your pardon, my friend," cried the questioner, "if I have thoughtlessly awakened in your mind any painful recollections. The world alas! is full of sorrow. My question recalls, maybe, the memory of a fair maid whose blooming young life was cut off " "No, it ain't that, mister," broke in the other. "I have a daughter, it's true, five of 'em, all unmarried, and the youngest is thirty-one!" And the old man hid his face in his hands and wept.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY ABOUT THE WAR. The truth is that the Navy is sound as a bell all through. I do not care how or when it may be tested, it will be found good and fit and keen and honest.—Mr. Winston Churchill. Italy will join you—and before long. Otherwise there will be a revolution in the country. At present there are about 600,000 men mobilised.—General Garibaldi. Our 13.5in. gun is unequalled by any enemy weapon at sea. Now we have the 15in. gun, which is vastly more powerful.—First Lord of the Admir alty. We must cultivate an international spirit, and not only live for our own nation, but for the whole world. We must hold fast to the spirit and love of freedom, and as long as we hold to freedom we are still worth praying for.—Viscount Bryce.

SIR THOMAS LIPTON'S MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

SIR THOMAS UPTON'S MOTHER. The most cherished memory of Sir Thomas Lipton is that of his mother; and it is really that memory which has kept him a bachelor. To quote his own words: "I have never met a woman . like her; she has been my inspiring star," and he speaks affec tionately of her influence in those early days in Glasgow when he open ed his first grocer's shop. An interesting story of those days tells how one morning he went to work' without kissing his mother good-bye. There had been a little family tiff, and the son strode off in great indignation. Before an hour had passed at the shop he was feeling uncomfortable and miserable, and when he could stand it no longer he hurried back t his home, pretending he had forgotten something. When the imaginary article was found he rather shamefacedly took his mother in his arms, kissed her, and then went back to work &,s happy as could be.

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

. The full story of the landing of the Australians and Kew Zealanders at Gallipoli has been told by Sir Ian Hamil ton, and the London papers are enthusi astic in their praise of our soldiers' bravery and fighting qualities. Everything points to a great effort be ing prepared by the Germans to break the British lines and force their way to Calais. That portion of the Russian army which has connected with its reserves in. Southern Poland has dealt a heavy blow at the advancing enemy. It fell on the right flank, and routed an entire division, the Austro-German losses in men and material being very heavy. As was expected, the Western theatre is the scene of violent fighting. Tha enemy has not disclosed yet his principal point of attack, but the Allies are re ported to be in sufficient strength to meet the blow wherever it falls. , . Sir Ian Hamilton reports that the Turks on Sunday and Monday attacked the Allies with great violence. Tim© after time the Allies repulsed the on coming enem...

A PROSPEROUS GERMANY. Why It Would Be a Menace to the World. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

A PROSPEROUS GERMANY. Why It Would Be a Menace to the World. Mr. H. G. Wells, replying to critics of Ms proposal for an Allied Zolive rein, says Ms case against Germany is not that she is prosperous, but that" slie spends her surplus energy en tirely upon unproductive and aggres sive war establishments, and that she has forced upon all: the world a-gigan tic waste of resources upon military expenditure. A rich Germany means a spend thrift Germany, forcing a strenuous unprofitable expenditure ' upon arma ments all over the world. " ' "Commodities are commodities and trade is trade, and the more of it the . better"—that seems to be the child like wisdom of the orthodox econom ists. That, on the whole, it would be better for mankind to have ten thou sand men doing nothing than to have them making ? sea mines or • aerial bombs is an idea that has manifestly never invaded the dignified leisure of our economic "experts." We are dealing with a country which for forty years has been work in...

Can You Say "Pzremgsi." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

, Most of our readers are puzzled to know how. to pronounce a great many of the names that, appear in the cables. Now, " Everylady's Journal"—that ! enterprising Australasian magazine for women—-is about to do a double service. It has arranged a Picture-Puzzle Com petition that will provide amusement for its readers extending over some months, and teaches them also how to pronounce War names. The. picture-puzzles will represent places in.the War Zone. The Puzzle-Editor has embodied these places in a list of some thousands of names published in a sixpenny book let, each name being, followed by its cor rect pronunciation in brackets. The booklet is really a very handy and useful guide, apart from its service as a hunt ing ground for the Picture'Puzzles. There is a general introduction by an ex pert linguist upon English and foreign languages, and each country is prefaced by a few remarks upon the general rales which apply to the pronunciation of its names. It might be added that "'Eve...

A GOOD INTERPRETATION. The Blind Rat. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

A GOOD INTERPRETATION. The Blind Rat. A Scotch, paper tells of a dream and j its interpretation, which in -truthful ness will rank with Joseph's famous explanations:— A laborer of the Dundee harbor re cently told his wife, on awakening, a curious dream which he had during the night. He dreamed that he saw coming towards him, in order, four rats. The first one was very fat, and was followed by two lean rats, the rear rat being blind. The dreamer was greatly perplexed as to what might follow, as it had been understood that to dream of rats denotes coming calam ity. ,-i % He appealed to his wife concerning this, but she, poor woman, could not! help him. His son, a sharp lad, who heard his father tell the story, volunteered to be the interpreter. "The first rat," he said, "is the man^' who keeps the public house that ye' gang till sae often, and the twa lean anes are my mither and me, and the blind ane is yerself, father." "Who could give a better answer?" Sister: Come, Willie, and take...

Mr Meudell expressed himself perfectly satisfied that the mine was an " honest " show, properly opened np and quite ready for a battery.

EXPLAINING THE WAR NEW WEAPONS OF TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

EXPLAINING THE WAR NEW WEAPONS OF TO-DAY. The war lias been marked by the introduction of new weapons and the revival of old and long-forgotten ones. The peculiar conditions under which four million men have been facing one another for a whole autumn and winter in entrenched lines which at many points are only a few yards apart have had a great influence on the methods of the combat. One of the most remarkable incid ents of the war has been the employ ment by the enemy of asphyxiating gases on a large scale, either by de tonating Dombs charged with suit able chemicals in the Allied positions or by squirting the gases from special apparatus on the Allied lines when a favorable wind is blowing. The ex act nature of the gas used is as yet uncertain. It must be heavier than air or it would produce little effect; and some of the observers speak of it as "yellow." The choice Avould seem to lie between the following, all of which can be easily generated:— Nitric peroxide, red-yellow and in...

Ere you go to sleep at night, when you've turned out every light, when you've locked the doors and hooked the chains up—so; When you've pulled the curtains snug, and the kitten's on the rug, and the dog is keeping vigil down below, Do you give a thought to those who are battling with your foes, who are fighting in the trenches day by day, Who the hosts of hell have braved that their country may be saved from the Kaiser-'s cultured sav ages in grey? When- the starlights shake and wink, do you lie awakeN and think of the men who hold the seas' high way for you? Of the ships of Jellicoe which -are riding to and fro that the rations of the slacker may come through! Can you hear their chanty free roll ing grandly o'er the sea, calling challenge to the Admirals in Kiel. Who are scared of open fight, but who stab when out of sight, and be hind a neutral vessel slink and steal!

SYBIL MANY-FATHERS. I. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

SYBIL MANY-FATHERS. By Ashley Milner. It was on the very day of the find ing of the strange baby that- Jerry ' Cole proposed matrimony to Mrs. Fletcher. Jerry proposed in the after noon; the baby of mystery was dis covered that same evening. A proposal of matrimony, whilst be ginning as romance, may end in any thing—from a kiss to a theological set-to. In Jerry's case it ended in a one-sided pecking match. Jerry, ex pecting to stroke a dove, found he had ruffled a vulture. The widow Fletch er swooped down on him before the last quavering word had left his lips, "Marry you?" demanded Mrs. Flet cher, arms akimbo and eyes aglare. "And why should I marry you, I'd like to know?" Jerry slowly twirled his hat by the brim, and grinned. "If it comes to that, why shouldn't you?" he ventured. "What's there about you for any woman to love?" demanded the trucu lent widow. 'Your face, or y'r for tune, or the wits of you?" Jerry looked down at the red of [Mrs. Fletcher's kitchen tiles.

HIDING BELGIUM'S OLD MASTERS Secrets That Defy German Cunning [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915

[hiding belgium's old masters Secrets That Defy German Cunning Generally when an invading German army captures a city of any import ance ^ the first question raised is as to the whereabouts of the municipal works of art, or other treasures. The Huns know perfectly well that most of the large towns in the Allies' countries possess priceless antiques and pictures, and these they regard as one of the most vital and attractive of their numerous spoils of war. Napoleon, of course, was a colossal robber in this direction. To this day Italy groans' under the sack and pil lage that was inflicted on her by the Little Corporal, who sent unique Ital ian pictures and statues back to France. Napoleon, however, had one good quality that is not shared to-day by the Kaiser's first-boni. He reward ed his soldiers with some of this booty and made soldiering under him a pro fitable and fascinating speculation. To Belgians the sacking of Louvain and other cities has proved a grim ob ject lesson, and wh...
