Turnbull, of Don ald, have received the following let-, ter from their sou, Private William Turubull, of the Royal Army Medi cal Corps, which was written from Cairo "I have arrived safely in Kgypt. We had a splendid voyage across, with the exception of the time we were crossing the Great Australian Bight, which was vc ry rough. Cairo is a great place, but in places very dirty. There are some beautiful buildiugs over here, and some are perfect in construc tion. The natives sleep anywhere, even in the streets. I have nearly walked myself to death sight-seeing —and have not seen one quarter of what there is to see ! Cab fares are very cheap, about two shillings au hour, and the traiu fare from Cairo to the Pyramids, a distance of ten miles, is less thau a half-penny. With three comrades, I went out to the Pyramids on Suuiay, October 10th. And they were worth the time. The Pyramids are sup posed to have been built over 5,000 yea...

Thk visit to Do.iald of Miss Amy Castles, one of the world s greatest sopranos, is aii important event lu the annals of this town s history, and there is no doubt but that bt. George's Hall will be crowded to the utmost on Wednesday evening next, when the Imperial Court singer will make lier initial appear ance in Douald. It is a great oppor tunity for local music lovers, for there are few, if any, great^ living singers who can claim the distinction of having won fame so early in life Melba, Clara Butt, Dolores, Ada Crossky. and the rest have achieved no more fame than "our Amy" , as i slie was called, when in the d®}-? gone by the keenest rivalry existed between Bendigo and Ballarat. Miss Castles was born in Melbourne, but at an early age removed to the Golden City, where she was later a student at the convent. I he beauty...

Tait, discussing the training that a singer has to uudergo before she may con fidently face the coucert platform, says that no one but those who went through it could realise the amount of self-sacrifice it involved. "For ihree years" said she, "[ worked bard iu Paris, denying myself mauy pleasures and relaxations, with just one objjct before me all the time— to succeed and justify tli2 expecta tions of tbe people of Au.st:alia, who had helped ma to go abroad and be trained. My teacher, M. Bouhy. in Paris, was a most conscientious master. For three years I studied every branch of operatic singing, and, at the same -time, took lessons in stage deportmsnt and acting from M. Valdejo, who was in his day a a famous theatrical star. I shall never forget the details of that period of strenuous ...

EARLY WHEAT DELIVERED The first load of the season's wheat was delivered at the Warracknabenl mill 011 Monday by Mr Bieyse, of the Donald road. It consisted of 70 bags of the Bunyip variety, and was a very fair sample. The price paid was -l/oj jd. A truck load of the sauie variety of wheat also arrived at the mill from Brim. 1 ==^== ■ Sir William Napier says War is the condition of this world. From man to the smallest insect, all are at strife, and the glory of arms—which cannot be obtained without the ex ercise of honor, fortitude, courage, obedHiee, modesty, and temperance —excites the brave man's patriotism, and is a chastening correction for the rich mail's pride.

Shooting for Nuts. AN INCIDENT AT GOROKE [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 3 December 1915
Shooting for Nuts, AN INCIDENT AT GOROKH Goroke has missed a chance of sending another soldier to the front. This misfortune happened so simp ly, too. A rifleman was furbishing his pet .30-3 rifle, when a passer-hy spoke unto him, saying, "Hullo, lad ! What are you doing there— preparing to shoot the Germans ? " The rifleman replied, "No, not ex actly, but I'll tell you what we are goiug to do. Six of us are going out to the butts, aud whoever makes the highest score is goiug to volun teer." Not one of the six bit the target. We have not heard what they are going to do about it, but dead heats meau share and share alike, so the fairest way is for the whole six to volunteer. There is any amount of room in the trenches at Gallipoli for bad shots. —WEST VVIMUUKA iUAII,, iNatiniUK.
