THE QUEEN OF BELGIUM AND HER "SONS." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917
THE QUEEN OF BELGIUM AND HER "SONS." The letters o£ a British major to his mother have been published, since his death at the front, in a volume en titled "From Dugout and Billet." In this volume there is a bi-ief but touch ing reference to Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, to whom the writer was pre sented, though he was not aware of her identity at the time. Ho describ ed her as "u. little fairy lady with a face full of soft womanliness and pale care." They entered into conversa tion, and the writer says: - "She only wanted to hear about two things-armies and soldiers. She talked of them with unassuming intim acy. She said that from the begin ning of the war she had been moving about-always moving, never in one 1 place. All the time I could see that she was repressing her feelings. You could see she was suffering acutely. " 'Have you relatives fighting, ma dam?' I asked, greatly blundering. " 'All of my sons,' she replied, 'those who have not already fallen.' I " 'But, forgive me, madam...

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. X. A WOMEN'S MOVEMENT NECESSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE. GAME No. X. A WOMEN'S MOVEMENT NECESSARY. A Win-tlie-War movement amongst women seems to be especially called tor. The longer the war lasts, the more strenuous the position gets, and the more certain it becomes that we will hive to turn every stone to secure victory. The eyes of the public in Australia undoubtedly remain shut to the seriousness of t'.ie situation, and that does not make it any better, rather it has a tendency to make it much worse. In spite of the great ef forts to secure volunteers, the men are not coming forward freely, and the re sult, so far, can only be described as disappointing. Are the 'women encouraging the men to go? Generally speaking, the answer must be in the negative, other wise there would not be such a great scarcity of volunteers. Women's in fluence is very great, and if they made up their minds that the men should volunteer, it could be safely anticipat ed that few of them -would hang back. Yet in this war there is a peculiar c...

The Mutilated; Register., "But why-why?" asked Belle. "1 don't know; miss. It was just a sudden impulse. Everything" seemed wrong with the world, and it came to me that death , couldn't be worse than what offered.", The unfortunate woman had given the name of Jane Stanfortli, but be yond that had preserved a complete silence concerning herself. Under careful nursing she was recovering with fair rapidity. The doctor's opin ion had been qualified by a discreet statement that the victim was suffer ing from actual starvation, and ex haustion due' to that painful'cause. Whereupon the tender-hearted I.ady Claremont had decreed that nourish ing food in abundance must be sup plied with no thought of stint, and as a result Jane Stanforth was betraying an actual desire to return to life."

ALWAYS GOING ONE BETTER. The Man Without Ambition Is Lost. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917
ALWAYS GOING ONE BETTER. The Man Without Ambition Is Lost. You think, my lad, the effort ends when you have learned the ropes? It's sad to dash your youthful zeal and blight your sanguine hopes, But we who've trod the winepress long and bought our wisdom dear, Have found the struggle just as stiff year after busy year. The strength to be . burden grows (for this is not jplaint) But never was the task assigned that lit the heart that's faint. And never, since old earth's pursued her sun-round path erratic, Has any job worth while been found that turned out automatic. The more you've brilliantly made good, the more of you's expected. The higher you have sailed, the more by friends your slump's detected. Day after dny your field unfolds as height on height you climb "Not failure," one old poet said, "but coward aim is crime." The moment you relax and say: "At last my job is fixed So I can do my stunt each day and never more get mixed," That moment you start down the slope, a downright ...
CHAPTER XX. The Return from the Dead. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917
CHAPTER XX. The Return from the Dead. Belle Carboyne looked about lier at the rich splendor of her home on the Yorkshire cliffs, and said that life was loo full of joy. Human hearts could not contain sucli a constant wealth of happiness-and yet, there was not so much as a single cloud upon her happiness. Three months had passed sinco the day of her wed ding, and each day had been bright golJ, with nothing to mar its beauty. Her husband's abiding, ay, and ever growing love, enwrapped her as with a garment; ho stood, a safe sure shield betwixt her and all thought of gloom. His desire was to help her forget the black years in the glorious promise of the present; and right well did he suc ceed in his mission. Belle had returned from her honey moon but a fortnight before, and to day she sat thinking over the myriad pleasurable scenes of those months of bliss. Aboard a friend's yacht, made over to them unconditionally, they had cruised throughout the length and breadth of the Mediterranea...
Blocked In. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917
Blocked In. The train had run into a snowdrift, and the engine was butting its head in rage against a six-foot bank. "For once the iron horse appears to be beaten," remarked a lady in a second-class carriage. "You shouldn't call it an iron horse," mildly reproved a solemn faced gentleman in black. "Why not," said the lady. "Because it's blooked tin," softly murmured the mere man, as he gazed out of the window and across the win try waste with a far-away look in his eyes. Wills: What is the idea of calling a consultation of physicians? Haddon: Oh, that's when the doc tor who originally took the case can't think of any more excuses to give the family.
THE CROPS OF GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917
THE CROPS OF GREECE. Notwithstanding the fact that the currant crop of Western Greece is the largest single dried-fruit crop of the world, little progress has been made in tlia entire district in agricultural de velopment within the last twenty-five years. No new crops have been intro duced within that time, nor have any noteworthy new methods of cultiva tion or conservation been adopted. Wheat is harvested in this district entirely with the sickle, and all soil treatment in trucking, olive growing, and viticulture is carried on by hand. Rural communication is wholly inade quate. There can scarcely be found anywhere in the district twenty con secutive miles of good waggon road, and rural transportation is carried on either by pack animals or by carts. These, with the one line of narrow gauge railway, constitute the only sys tem of communication in the district.
