QUITE TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 7 May 1915
QUITE TRUE. Tlie vicar of a mining village Bout a pair of boots to the cobbler's for repairs; but Bill, who had been im bibing rather freely, felt no inclina-, tion for work, so the boots were not touched that day. Next morning his nerves wore rather shaky and he longed for "a hair of the dag that bit him." His own boots were rathor dirty, so he thought there was no harm in putting on the parson's, which he ?accordingly did, and turned off into the village pub for a big '' reviver.'' He had not gone very far when whom did he meet but the vicar, who said: '' 1 sent my boots down for repairs, "William. Are you not finished with them yet?" "Wey, mister,'' answered Bill calmly, "they're not mended yit, but they're on the road."
AMERICA'S CANKER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 7 May 1915
AMERICA'S CANKER. An American exchange gives some startling facts regarding child labour in the States: It is ton years since Mr: Markham startled us with the rovelations of the horrors of child labour iu the United States, in which ho pictured the life of the working child Ln factory, mine and mill, and sounded a note of warning that roused the good citizens to the nation's danger and thoir own respon sibility. Investigations proved that there \ wero more than 2,000,000 ol' yaung children employed long hours-in manj- places twelve-hour night as well as day shifts. That young boys and girls should be compelled to spend long days in work, donicd the freedom that is the natural right of the growing animal,,was bad enough, but that tiny children--many scarcely - more than babies-should work all day and into the night was intolerable. The cry of these little toilers came from all parts of our land. It came from the coast of Louisiana, where the child of five is working from morning till...
WHAT IS A BOCHE? [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 7 May 1915
WHAT IS A BOCHE? The origin and moaning of the word "Boche" which is commonly applied by the French soldiers to the Germans is a mystery to most people, even those who are fairly conversant with French. A French newspaper paragraph says: -"If the word 'boche' is not yet in the Aoademy dictionary, it at least figures in Salva's Spanish dictionary, where one finds 'boche, slang for Verdugo.' Turning to 'Verdugo,' we find 'Scoun drel, cruel, inhuman man, applied to ono who causes misery, ruin, or, death.' " ,

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. Minding one's own business is a con dition wrought of necessity should one aspire to achicve success. That man wao goes about his bueineas aud ap plies himself . diligently 'to the task at hand will still have his accounts bal ance ou the proper side of the ledger when his competitors will be arguing with the receivers about real aud per sonal property. When a man comes to his ollieo and takes his seat, at hia desk with a cigar nud a morning paper, to the unpre judiced observer it is a safe guess that it is oniy a matter of time until his sub ordinates will be. his superiors or the business will be counted in history with Ancient Home.

IF ALLIES TRIUMPH. - BRITAIN WILL WIN MOST. Professor M. Kv.utolcoui contributes to the Kome publication, " Giornale d'Italia," a notable article about the results of the war, which deserve to be briery summarised. He sayw: "In politics as in chess jumping moves aro made, it' anyone wishes to know the Government's future move the reply relates to to-morrow'a wore, not to that of the day after. Our in terest to move may be evident, but even so there are dilferent ways of sat isfying it. Our policy cannot be auto nomous. Germany is now paying the penalty for having followed an auto nomous policy. Our fato does not de pend on what we can do directly, but on what happens to the others with our pagsive or active attitude. Strangely enough, our fate will bo decided in XJelgium and on the banks of the Vis-1 tula and not in the Adriatic. There is no reason whatever for us to leap in the dark. After this war Europe is j going to be radically changed under! many aspects. It is only possible t...
