To the Farmers A WARNING AND AN APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917
STo the Farmers A WARNING AND AN APPEAL. The Primo Minister (Mr. Hughes) Ias issued the following appeal to the farmers of Australia: " Already opponents of the Govern nllrtt proposals have renewed that canl paign of lies by which many of the farmers were misled at the last referen duln. Men who ire, and always have been, the enemies of the farmer now fawn upon Ilin, and pretend to be his friend. I appeal to the farmer to re memlber the gravity of the peril that now threatens Australia, and to act as patriotism ned conlnon sense die taote. I appall to hlim to ponder well upon the colsequences of his vote, to remember the character of the men who are behind the 'No' campaign, to remember that Sinn Fein and .W.W. ism are behind it, tlhat those respon sible for the late disnstrous strike are behind it, that nil the enemies of Aus tralia and the Empire are behind it. Many cunning lies are bring, and will lie, poured into the ear of the nian on the laud.to induce him to vote against the ...
WELCOME TO RETURNED SOLDIERS AT HURSTBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917
WELCOME TO RETURNED. SOLDIERS AT HURSTBRIDGE. This welcome was to be given to Lieut. H. A. Harrison, Quartermaster Sergeant C. Lister, Pte. S. Connell and Pte. N. L. de Campo, and a send-off and wristlet watch to Pte. J. Curtis. Unfurtunately, Pte. J. Curtis had sailed for the front before the affair could be held, and Pte. de Campo could not obtain leave. Otherwise the function was a splendid success. After two or three dances Miss Doris Milne sang, in a very sweet voice, " One of the Toys," and shortly after- wards Mr H. Williams was heard to advantage in "Somewhere at Sea, Mother Darling." A few more dances and then Mr J. Shanhan, President of the Hurstbridge Patriotic League, an- nounced that they would now proceed with the most important part of the proceedings. Several of our lads had returned, and to show them that their services were not looked lightly on, the residents of Hurstbridge had called them together to present each with a medal as a token of their esteem and apprec...
SCRUBBY, GREEK PRESBYERIAN CHURCH. SUCCESSFUL ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917
SCRUBBY CREEK PRESBY- TERIAN CHURCH. SUCCESSFUL ENTERTAINMENT. The Scrubby Creek State School was well filled on Saturday evening 8th inst. when an entertainment, in aid of the local Presbyterian Church funds, was held. The minister (Rev. Douglas Bruce) presided. The proceedings opened with the National Anthem. The first part of the programme con- sisted of songs, choruses, recitations, etc., by the school children and visitors, and the second part of moving pictures depicting comedy, tragedy, scenery, and aspects of the world-wide war, which is uppermost in all minds at the present time. The children were trained by the teacher (Miss Ander- son), assisted by Mrs Dalton, and their sweet singing and correct reciting reflected the greatest credit on the care and time devoted by those two ladies to their instruction. The cinema was operated by Master Lindsay Walker, of Northcote, who, although only 12 years of age, displayed much ingenuity, and made quite a skilful operator. The pictur...

EULOGY — E. T. YATES (Killed in Action, 4th October, 1917). Cut off so sudden, one life's journey half &nbsp; &nbsp; begun. We mourn our loss — God's will be done ; Ted was brave — he scorned to shirk or run, Like many a slacker at the word "gun." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; He fell bravely fighting for the Empire's cause, To uphold Old England and her humane laws — All tribute pay to a hero brave and true, &nbsp; &nbsp; One of Nature's gentlemen — and a sportsman too.

CONSCRIPT COURAGE [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917
CONS CRIPT COURAGE By Boyd Cable in " Action Front" Gerald l3unthrop was not a conscript n the strict sense of the word, because ,shon he enlisted no legal form of con scription existed in the Unied King lomr; but he was. as many more have been, a moral conscript. n man ut terly averse to any form of soldiering, much less fighting, very re;uctantly driven into the army by force of cir cunstatnco and pressuze front without himself. Before the war the army and its ways were to him a sealed book. Of war he had the haziest ideas, com pounded of novels he had read and dimly remembered, and mental pictures in a confused jumble of Charles O'Malley dragoons on spirited chargers, half-forgotten illustrations in the papers of pith-helmeted infantry in the Iloer war, faint boyhood recollections of Ma gersfontein and the g:umness of the " ilack week "-and a mutch more realistic and v;ivid impression of a'nter loo as described by Brigadier Gerard anid odd figures of black Soudanese, of Light Bri...
SEEN IN SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 December 1917
SEEN IN SLEEP. Many well-nuthenticated stories are told of how sweethearts and wives have been warned by dreams and te lepathy of impending danger to loved ones at the Front. One of the moat vivid stories on record is related by a young lady whose fiance was re cently wounded. Almost as soon. as she fell asleep one night she dreamed that she saw her fiance in the tren ches preparing for a raid. In her dream she saw him, with many ot hers, climb out of the British tren ches, cross No Mean's Land, and enter the enemy's lines. Her dream be came confused foil a moment, and then quite plainly she saw him clin?b on to the parapet of the German trench and fall forward wounded. A big man came up, took the wounded man on his shoulder, and carried him back to the British lines. The young. lady awoke feeling very alarmed, and' the next day wrote to her fiance for newns A few days afterwards she received a letter from him in hospital, stating thab on the night of her dream, ab out midnight, he ...
SOLDIER SCARECROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 December 1917
SOLDIER SCARECROWS. According to reports received Int England, orders have been issued in Germany compelling the removal of any old clothing from scarcrows is the fields. The reason why the issue of such an extraordinary order has been considered necessary is that pri soners of war who succeeded in get ting away from their guards have exchanged clothes with the dummy figures, and having euccessfully dis posed of clothes in which they could not possibly hope to get far, they have in many cases succeeded in reaching the frontier unsuspected. The dodge is not, of course, a now one. Over a hundred years ago two French officers, confined as prisoners of war on Dartmoor, escaped to the coast in scarecrows' rags which they found in a farmer's cornfields, and eventually reached France in a smug gling sloop. In November, 1897, again, a prison er who escaped from Shrewsbury Gait annexed the clothes from two scare crows dressed up in feminine attire in. an orchard. He then retired to a thick w...
