FROM SHISB CLERK TO SOLDIER. j A correspondent writes :—" Geurie • is losing one of its most popular res ! iaents in the person of Mi\ W. .Smith, shire clerk, and the Gilgandra inarch of recruits may be held responsible. Chiefly throagb several severe ill nesses, Mr. Smith has up to the\> present not joined his brothers (two of them) at the front. Recently re covered, however, the call for men caught Mr. Smith's attention and at tracted him strongly, and when he heard of the Gilgandra march, it ! proved to him irresistible.

NORTON-GRIFFITH AFFAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 22 October 1915

NORTON-GRIFFITH AFFAIR. In an article on the Norton Griffiths business, the Melbourne "Argus" says:—".The strangest; part of the affair is that Mr. Hoi man does not defend the transaction. He almost apologises for it. When the German Chancellor announced to the Reichstag the violation of Belgium's neutrality he said, cold-bloodedly, "Gentleman, we are now in a state of necessity, and necessity knows no law." When Mr Hoi man found that New South Wales lacked money for public works he entered into this unprecedently imprudent bar gain. "Now he says in effect what the German Chancellor said on Aug ust 4'."

MR. ALF. BLACKMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 22 October 1915

MR. AL«F. BLACKMAN. Thus a correspondent:—-The many friends of Mr. Alf. Blackmail, of " G nndare," Mundooran—that one time champion amateur rider—will be pleased to learn that he has quite recovered after his painful accident. It appears that " Alf " was learning to lop kurrajong, so as to be able to accept Walter Jennings' challenge. Whilst being suspended by one leg from the limb of a kurrajong tree, he forgot about the other leg, a,nd in stead of a whip coming in contact with that leg, a sharp instrument, in the form of a tomahawk, came in collision. Result, deep gash, quick despatch to Coonabarabran—just in time, as the sufferer had lost a con siderable quantity of blood, and col lapsed upon reaching the town. Mr. Blackman is now to he seen getting about Coonabarabran on crutches.
