' SHIPPING^OLD OUT 'k\ ' ' A OF THE COUNTRY' L__ Is there any of ytfur gold in this shipment? If you use American Tyres, that's the eventual destination of your money — money that should stay in this Country and help further the industrial * prosperity of Australia. It is not as if there's any gain, or any need for you to use Imported .Tyres. The best wearing, and the most economical Covers in the Commonwealth to-day are AUSTRALIAN-MADE WHITE TREAD DUNLOP TYRES which are used and appreciated by fully half of the Motorists in Australia, and there are no foreign Covers that approach them for Quality, Thickness of Rubber, and Strength of Casing, and none that will give such a low running cost per mile. The latter is the basis of tyre economy, and in that direction 'DUNLOPS' offer you excellent service — at a Reasonable Cost. Stocked in Grooved, Three Ribbed , and Rubber Non-Skid — at all Leading Garages . ?M M M . * ? M DUNLOP RUBBER 00.. Al- States and N.Z. Brisbane House : 268=74 Ade...

ARE WE WAR-WEARY? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

ARE WE WAR-WEARY? The leading German newspapers pub lish an article, -which has apparently been Issued by the Berlin Publicity Bureau, analysing the Conscription Referendum in Australia. The article states: — 'Aus- tralia has produced some strange things during times of peace, .but nothing .stranger than these statistics of war weariness. For what can the figures mean except that the people are against the continuance of the war?' The figures mean nothing of the kind. They mean that Australians were misled by the selfish politicians and Trades Hall leaders into a very abyss of ignorance. They were not educated -up to a realisa- , tion of the seriousness of the situation. The non-success of the voluntary system, which the fiery socialists claimed had not been .given a, fair trial, is surely proof of that. The average Australian has not been brought into close contact with the horrors that such a war as this brings in -its train. They have not seen the wrecked cities, the slaughtered ...

IN E.GYPT. A young ladiy whose brother enlisted in the Light Horse at the 'beginning of the war writes feelingly about the lack of sympathy shown by the average Aus tralian for those 'brave men who have been unable to get to France. After describing her brother's experience in the land of the Pharoahs, the writer sa,ys: 'It amounts to this.

He has to stay with his regiment. He has seen much service, dangerous in the ex treme. One letter from the Peninsula state: 'Here we are 20 yards from the first Turkish -trench.' My trouble is this.

Mrs. CAMPBELL RILEY AND HER WORK, "FOR THE HEART OF THESE." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

' Mrs. CAMPBELL RILEY AND HER WORK, 'FOR THE HEART OF THESE.' 'It is beauty that underlies everything; ,it is beauty alone that exists.' These words of Maurice Maeterlinck, to whom beauty is most surely a religion, come to one's mind when thinking: of Mrs. Camp bell Riley, the sweet and generous gentle woman who passed away on Sunday last. A daughter of the late Hon. W. H. Walsh, Mrs. Campbell Riley spent her childhood ana eariy ginnooa in xsrisuaiie at mni'ton House,' the old home on the River-road, and later at 'La Chute,' Kangaroo Point/ and one's memories are of a slender girf, very winsome and sweet, courteous and kind to all with whom she came in con tact. Later, after her marriage to Mr. Campbell Riley, they were several years in England, and at their station home, 'Clontarf,' near Longreach, and, later, several years in Toowoomba at a new 'La Chute,' named after the old home. But always, wherever her home was, were gathered all the little beauties of life which meant so much...

(To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

(To the Editor of the 'National Leader.') uear oir, — as a reaaer oi your valu able paper, I must say I was not im pressed by 'Interested's' idea of getting recruits. What is the good of talking to such men (I apologise; creatures lis the word) ? Haven't we been appealing since August, 1914? Now, I think my idea goes one better than 'Interested's.' It is this. Let every man who has elig ible men working for him put a notice in a public position, so that all his em ployees can see it, to the effect that if the eligibles have not enlisted in, say, a week's time, -their services will be dls epnsed with, and see that it lis carried out, and then place the men who have proved /themselves true men, worthy of being classed as heroes, which, truly, they are, in the vacant positions., I think that you, Mr. Editor, will agree that not only might it aid recruiting, but lit would be a God-send to some of the returned men, whio surely have the right to be preferred ibefore the shirkers. One youn...

What is Patriotism? J. S. COLLINGS AND FALSE SENTIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 February 1917

What is Patriotism? J. S. COLLI NGS AND FALSE SENTIMENT. One of the most extraordinary set of requests ever made to a responsible Mimister of the Crown was put before Mr. Hardacre (Minister for Education) on Saturday last. The .member who in troduced the deputation (Mr. Jones, M.L.A.) remarked that they represented a not inconsiderable body of public opinion, as they represented twelve van out organisations connected, either directly or indirectly, with the Labor party. After reading the report of that deputation, the only conclusion this ?paper can come to is that if the deputa tion represented a not inconsiderable body of public opinion, then God lielp Australian public opinlion. 'Mr. M'Cos ker said he would like the lessons in the school books altered to bring them more '? in keeping with the principles of the Labor party, especially the history les sons, in whiich the leaders of industrial movements should be more specially stressed instead of the kings and princes, as at presen...
