He could find no one on the premises, so be promptly sent out the alarm by energetically linging the bell. Shortly afterwards the firemen began to arrive, and it was not long before 9 or, 10 of...

KOOKABURRA MARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916

KOOKABURRA MARCH. Tooraweenah on Wednesday last pruned its feathers and pointed its' chest to some purpose. In lact, like on the eve of Waterloo, it gathered all its beauty and its chivalry to wish God speed to the boys who were going out to fight for Australia, home and beauty. The Coo-ee march had emitted a spark that caused a huge conflagration of en thusiastic patriotism throughout the Commonwealth, and Tooraweenah, being very close to the emitting spark, caught alight like tow. Knowing of his triumphal Coo-ee march, the Tooraweenah people re quested Captain Bill Hitchen to identify himself with their march, and this he gladly consented to do When Captain Eade made his pro posal' for a march from Mudgee to Lithgow, the Tooraweenah people readily agreed.

WHEAT LIENS [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916

WHEAT LIENS The Minister for Agriculture states that some little trouble had been caused owing to the obligation of agents to protect the holders of liens over farmers' crops. Pending a settlement of the difficulty, the agents overcame it by making farmers sign a'declaration that their wheat was free from any encumbrance before handing to them the certificate to enable them to obtain their advances from the banks. The State wheat office arranged last week with the Registrar-General's Department to obtain a list of all outstanding liens, which number approximately two thousand, and arrangements have been made to settle with the least possible delay the claims between lienors and lienees. Farmers and merchants are parti cularly requosted by the. Agricultural Department to note that all export of wheat and floui from this State, by rail or sea, is prohibited by the Federal Government, unless it is ac companied by a permit from the State wheat office. « Such permits can only be given to...

TERRIBLE REVENGE. WHAT A. G. HALES SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916

TERRIBLE REVENGE; WHAT A. G. HALES SAYS. The Australian, A. G. Hales, writing in "John Bull," says :—   "War is war, and war is hell ; we can't make it anything else ; the man   who talks of Hague Convention rules in war time is a dreamer. Real, war has no rules. Let us now wake up. What would have happened at     the Gallipoli Peninsula if the Maoris and Australians had not got there, I do not know ; these two peoples   make their own rules as they go   along in a fight. No one more chival rous than they if the enemy plays the game, but let him play the Dev il, and they find the brimstone to warm him, and they find it in lumps.   Their motto is: "As my enemy does to me and my brother, so will I do   unto him, and a bit over for luck."   It's a nice clean motto for a real   fighter—-fair to all, flattering to none,   At the beginning they did...
