Universal Service League. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Universal Service League. E'Ihe following manifesto Is pub lished at the reqoest of the above body: The Prime M1inister, in a phrase which every Australian endorses, has declared that Australia would send her last man and spend her last shilling in the defence of the Empire. This extreme necessity has not yet arisen. But we cannot shut our eyes to the fact that the situation is one of grave anxiety. The existence of the British Enm pire and all that it stands for, to its own citizens and the world at large, is in danger. If the Empire l should fall, the rights and liberties which, to a British community, are i as necessary and natural as the air they breathe, will fall with it There is not a man, woman or child in the Empire whose inte rests are not directly at stake. Australia has done much. But she has not done enough. Nothing is enough, short of her utmost. Her efforts are still far short of that. The Mother country at enor mous cost, has kept open the seas with her navy. She has...

Town Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Town Water Supply. "Garden Lover" puts the case pretty fairly: "Sir,.-Fiom what I can learn of the projected ,cheme to give us thirsty souls of Ouyen a drop of water, it is proposed to place a meter on to every Droperty which shows signs of a garden, or intention to make one. Is the idea to discourage the beautification of of the town. or is it an example of want of sense ? I am proud of my bit of garden, and when the water is laid on, have no objection to pay ing for what I use. But what about the other fellow who has no garden but a dozen other ways of using the water-is he to do as he plea3es? Experience shows that where no check is kept waste is rampant. In my garden produce is much that is useful, in addition to what is orna mental, and therefore I claim, it i. a benefit. My neighbo1 <and I hope you will not tell him) has no time for gardening, as it is only nonsene, but although I water my plants pretty freely, and my tanks are no more than his, I have water to give...

A Fire Brigade. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

II Fire ~ ~~iraide; In response to the advt. in our last issue. a; ont a score of towns people attc.;:vie the public meeting convened Fo: t:urscay night. In the absence of the president of the shire (Cr. Glen), Cr. Pickering was voted to the chair, and Mr. Don elected secretary to the meet ing. At the request of the chairman, Mr. W. A. Ritchie explained the necessary sfeps to be taken to form and equip a brigade so as to place it on a footing for registration and taking over by the Country Fire Brigades' EBoard. A reel, 800 feet of hose with other necessary ap pliances, would cost roughly p80. From quotations he had obtained, the reel and appliances could be purchased on terms, and if £5O could be raised. the balance might be paid off by concerts or other en tertainments. Once the reticula tion scheme was carried out and the brigade registered, insurances in the town would be reduced by 3/6 per cent., so t1 at as a business proposition, the movement was a good one. In reply to quest...

Local And General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Local And General. The "Journal of Agriculture" for September is interesting to dairy farmers, but an article on wheat and the war is well worth perusal by the cereal cultivator. The price is just the plain tray bit, and 3/ will secure the publication for a year. It is worth a lot more. Now that we are linked up with the west, as well as north and south, by 'phone, it is the correct thing for business people to get "on the line." In the latter part of last week, an officer was in Ou yen obtaining the names of those who would subscribe to an ex change, and the respouse was most gratifying. One point to be re membered is that so soon as the notice= come to hand, the neces sary paymnient for the first year's rent must be made, and that will expedite matters considerably. We expect the phones to be in nuse in about two month's time. Are you there? Tonight the long anticipated R.C. Ball eventuates, and we much mistake if the attendance is not quite equal to that of ar.y other year. There...

Water And Sense. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Water ind Sense. It is an apparent paradox to complain about water just now. Yet at no time was the discussion more necessary. At first glance there wou!d no- seem to be any direct connection between the sup ply of water and the shortage of trains. But refleation should show there is. No, not because of the dronght-that's a side issue. We want to show that pure crassness, as evidenced at the Ouyen railway station, shows how the wind blows, bn?t water does not flow. Ever since the line from Woomelang to Mildura was constructed, the Railway department has been hauling water to Ouyen to supply the engines. Somewhere back in penetrated the brain of some offi cial, and it was decided that the oost of hauling the water would pay interest on a big water conser vation scheme for engine purposes, and it was decided to sink a dam. After the usual expenditure of red tape, stationery, ink, and brain matter, the dam was put down. That done, the officia' sat down quite complacently--there was the...

The Water Question. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

The WPater Question. "Also Watching" has a word in reply to "'Watch Dog'"': 'Sir,-Please allow me a little of your space to try and coax 'Watch Dog' back to his chain. First of all our 'Watch Dog' larks out to say that the S.R. and W.S.C- ought to conserve all available water; then, in almcst the same breath, he says that dams, such as Galah (which are excavated to within a couple of feet of a sand bed), ought to be put dowvn deeper. I, as a ratepayer,am of the same opinion as he re con servation of water, but I would rather have ten feet of water in a dam on a good clay bottom than say fifteen on a sand bottom, un less I happened to want the tank for a sewerage pit or some thing of the sort. 'Watch Dog' then scents around and finds out that the drains are all out of order. I wonder when he found it out chasing a rabbit across the plain anI fell into one, I suppose. After getting out of the drain he goes or to say that there is a reserve at Ga lah that would run enough water to fill...

Teacher Eddie. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Teacher Eddie. Cursed be the day when warlike brands Spread death and ruin o'er the lands. Now man 'gainst man on. foreign strands This very day, Are ranged like old Homeric bands In bloody fray. Even now, misfortune's cruel car Has borne our Eddie off to war, On distant hills where cannon roar, And snipers lurk; Whilst overhead the bomb shells soar 'Gainst pagan Turk. Oh! Eddie was a thinker bright, His mind pierced darkness as the night, And soared beyond the Aurora light So broad and free. A champion, aye, for truth and right Was Teacher Eddie. In school he was a teacher good, And children learned there as they should To seek the truth and shun the rude, Both girl and laddie Were given truth and wisdom's food, By Teacher Eddie. The brethern of the Temperance Tent Now find their ranks asunder rent, To them his aid was ever lent, Their friend was he. To crush the drink curse was his bent; Wise Teacher Eddie.

Swimming Baths For Ouyen. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Swimming Baths For O1en. "Nunga" has a sensible snugges tion on the above subject, and we would like your opinion about it. Summer is almost here: "I have been advocating for som time, the need of providing a bath or dam to teach the young lads of Ouycn how to swim, and on inqui ring of Mr. Kenyon, he suggested trying the water from some of the flats around the town, as he oun siders it is not more 'sa!it than that of the sea. His idea is to put dowan a bore and test the .water, and if suitable, then sink a -tank of the required dimensions close to the bore, put on a windmill, and you have a never failing supply of salt water. A shaft on the opposite end of the drift would take the overflow. Should the bore prove th_ water fit I will give a day with a man and team to help make the tank, and I feel sure others will do the same. It is a good opportunity to.teach the young to swim, and there is no reason why the baths should not be made public ones."

Agricultural Colleges. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Agricultural eolleges. The Principal of the Dookie Ag ricultural College (Mr. H. Pye) in his report for August states that the rainfall for the month was 25 Sinches, and as the weather is com paratively mild the crops and pas tures are making rapid headway. The late sown crops, if such a sea son as this continues, will likely give good returns, as the growth is rot so rank. Owing to the absence of frosts the season has been propi tious for the increase of fungoid and insect pests, but it is hoped these will have been hindered by the long dry spell during the early part of the year. The experimen tal areas are looking well, and there is a good germination of the new crossbred wheats. Somegoad new oats are expected this season, and it is hoped to have among them two or three varieties to come in earlier than the Algerian variety, and so increase the facility of far mers to commence harvesting oper ations earlier. The new barleys are principally of the beardless type. The two-rowed bea...

Australian Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Australian Soldiers. General Sir Ian Hamilton says what he thinks, and we are not surprised at more of our district men volunteering: "The gallant capture of the al most impregnable Lonesome Pine trenches by the Australian divi sion, and the equally gallant de fence against repeated counter at tacks, are exploits which will live in history. The determined as saults from other parts of the line were also of inestimable service to the whole force. Thetroops under the command of Major-General Sir A. J. Godley, particularly the Australian and New Zealand divi. sion, were called upon to carry out one of the most difficult military operations ever attempted, namely, a night march and an assault by several columns in intricate moun tainous country strongly entrenched and held by a numerous and deter mined eneniy. Their brilliant con duct during this operation, and the success achieved, won them a rep utation of which any country must be proud. To the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, ...

There was a fair attendance though ot the number in comparison to he volume of wark done by the ecretary, Mr. D. T.

The Pops. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

The Pops. It was hoped, but scarcely anti cipated, that the A ustralian night at the Pops. would eclipse that of Caledonian's pride. On Friday night last, the public hall was filled to overflowing, and the big audi ence had a splendid time. The program proved quite to the liking of those present, and encores were numerous. An almost purely Aus tralian flavor covered the items, the concluding one being a tableau depicting Australia and her sons, right down to tne picaninny. All the popular favorites appeared, and the doorkeeper had the satisfaction of hearing the secretary say the proceeds were L16. If there is a community of similar proportions can do better under the same cir cumstances, we want to hear from it. There will be an interval this week owing to the big ball tonight, but on Friday of next week, an Empire night will be the item. It is quite on the cards that the newly formed P.L.C. will be for ward with a night for the WVounded Soldiers' Fund shortly.

Boinka Bits. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 September 1915

Boinka Bits. To send off two volunteers, and at the same time raise some funds to make things a bit easier for those heroes who have returned wounded, a patriotic-concert was held on Friday, 10th inst. Owing to the big rain, the attendance did not come up to what it otherwise would have been, but if there was lacking attendance, there certainly was not lacking enthusiasm. The local footballers were accountable for the fixture, the volunteers to be honored being Messrs. P. Wal- her and A. Watson, and they went into camp last week. The concert was a big success, and the funds benefited appreciably through raf- fles of articles donated by Mes- dames Elliget, Watson, Walker, and Hendy, Miss Muir, and Messrs. Affleck, Stephens, Adams, Walton, and Hampel. On behalf   of the football club, Mr. Affleck, in a stirring speech, presented each volunteer with a set of pipes. The speaker eulogised both young men for the manly qualifications shown in private life, and on the cricket a...
