TASMANIANS DEATH AT SEA LEVEN OFFICER EXPIRES ON WAY HOME, Mr. Angus M'Pherson, of Sprent, has received the sad 'news that his son, Major M'Pherson, died at sea on December 24 (Christmas Eve).

He fought at &nbsp; &nbsp; Gallipoli, where he was wounded, and after being in France for some time was again laid aside for a short time &nbsp; through wounds received in action. He left with the rank of lieutenant, and during his military career gave evi &nbsp; dence of ability and courage that earned for him promotion to the posi tion, he held at the time of his death. He was well-known as a young man of exceptionally fine disposition, and his death on the eve of once more being with the members of his family, after four years of stern warfare, makes &nbsp; their sorrow all the more poignant. &nbsp;

COUNTRY KILLING. THE ENGLISH COUNTERFEIT. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 10 January 1919
COUNTRY KILLING &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE ENGLISH COUNTERFEIT. It is a significant coincidence that while graziers in Australia are giving attention to the question of country killing on co-operative lines, the same movement has been gathering way in England, where, of course, the condi tions of production are vastly different, but unsatisfactory marketing and dis tributing conditions are apparently to the fore. Lord Selborne, president of the Agri cultural Organisation Society, which re presents co-operative societies with a turnover last year of £7,000,000, ex pressed the opinion that the farmers' co-operative slaughter-houses were go- ing to spread widely, and that they would provide a solution of the diffi- culty of sales on a dead-weight basis. ''The farmer," he said, "dislikes being unable to follow his beast. With these local co-operative slaughter-houses he should have no diffic...

As the train approached, the horse left the rails but later jumped right in front of the engine, so close that there was no possibility of avoiding running the beast down. The force &nbsp; of the impact was so great that the horse was lifted high above the ground, being killed almost instantly. The loss of the horse will be felt keen- ly by the owner,Mr. Geo. Webb, as the animal was a useful one at all work. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

PEOPLE MAKE PEACE. | And I had another thought: This is a great industrial city. Perhaps you gentlemen think of the members of your Government and the members of tho other Governments who arc go ing to confer in tho city of Paris as the real makers of war and peace, but wc aro not. You aro tho makera of war and of peace. The puke of the modern world beats on the farm, and ; in thc farm, in the minc, and in the factory. The plans of the modern ! world are made in the counting ¡ house. The mon that do the business j of the world now shape the destinies lof the world, and peace or war is now j in a large measure in the hands of j those who connect thc commerce and the world.

OUR GALLANT DEAD HONOR BADGE FOR BEREAVED WIVES AND MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
OUR GALLANT DEAD HONOR BADGE FOR BEREAVED ¡ WIVES AND MOTHERS. j A special badge of honor Ls to he is sued by the Defence Department to the wives and mothers of all Austra lian soldiers who have beeil killed on active service, or who have died as a result of war service. In tho United States a black arm band, suitably in scribed, is issued by the authorities to thc bereaved mothers and wives of the men who have fallen in battle. It is believed, however, that tho form of bndgo to be issued by the Australian authorities will be found much moro suitable and appropriate than an arm band. The badge consists of a hand of black silk, 3 inches long and 2J inches broad, which is suspended from a thin silver bar, so that it can bc easily pin ? ned to a dress or blouse. The rising sun badge of the Commonwealth Mili tary Forces, in colors of gold, purple and silver, is woren into tho silken band, and the design is completed by two sprays of golden wattle flowers, ar tistically arranged.

In reference to demobilisation in Great Britain, affecting at least 10, OCO.OOO men and women engaged in the British war effort, of whom 775, 000 are already released, including 270,000 soldiers and saiiors, 115,000 re turned war prisoners, and 390,000 munitiun workers, it is authoritatively stated that the three factors govern ing the demobilisation are: (1) Tho size of tho British army, which must at present bc maintained. (Tin's already has been settled by Mar shal Foch m confcrenco with the Allies holding the western linc). (2) The machinery of discharge. (3) The economic situation at home. At present demobilisation is proceed ing at ¿elective basest as distinct from discharge by units, and men are being selected as far ns possible who are most essential to industry. Obvi ously demobilising an army and navy of 7,000,000 on a selective basis is a colossal undertaking.
