The Coming Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 November 1916
The Coming Drought. -----)---- What rot. It certainly does seem paradoxical to start on such a sub- ject in the wettest year on record. But it is that very wetness which causes reflection. The Mallee is &nbsp; new - painfully so, as many of our readers know-and it is that very newness which may cause disaster if experiece does not teach. The year 1916 promises to go down in history as one to place on record. Only one of those disasters which cannot he anticipated or provided against can prevent the greatest har- vest ever reaped in the new Mallee being garnered. And therein lays a great danger-the danger of sufficient for the day. So far as evil is con- cerned, the proverb is a good one, that there never was so much good that some portion of it should not be preserved to assure that the day afterr should not at least be provided for. Already this year the evidences of waste are manifold. The whole countryside has been clothed with such a prolific coat of grass as it never wa...
Tempy Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 November 1916
Tempy Topics. On Friday last Mr. W. C. Bos- chert was opening a bottle of tomato sauce when the bottle burst and in- flicted a nasty gash in his hand. He was driven to Ouyen where Dr. Lindsay fixed things up. The Tempy people are greatly in favor of the Ouyen Hospital. Mr. J. Frawley has already obtained the promise of close on 100 bags of wheat. He hopes to have a good stack at the end of the season for the new hospital. Buck in Tempy. A meeting was held on Saturday night to discuss the matter of estab- lishing a Bush Nursing centre, Mr. J. Hilt presiding over a good atten- dance. Nearly everybody seems to be in favor of the movement, and fifty names were placed on the books, but there is room for a lot more be- fore the nurse's services can be se- cured. This is a matter for taking a broad view, and other centres might well co-operate. A few miles is not a big consideration in case of emer- gency.
Linga Links. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 November 1916
S Linga Links. The !odal Red Cross Soiety,wbich S'as formed only on the 4th of Orto her last, is amply justifying its ezisu tence. The appeal for donetions andY regular weekly subscriptions met with a splendid response bresgbont the district, and the footballers dona ted S10 from the funds they had col lected. The president, Mrs Grimes, does all the cutting out of garm?a?nts, and this is an arduous task, the army of workers who want to do their bit being a considerable one;. in addition to involving a large amount of labor, this cutting out conserves the funds, as the railway authosities charge freight on the goods if cut out but not made up. The branch is duly afiliated with the riSotish Red Cross Society, so that whatever goods go out are as sured of reaching the intended des:i uation-the wounded or sick soldier. A series of dances in aid of the funds has been held, the last for the season being on Monday night last. The contractor for the erection of the weighbridge has commenced...

Timberoo South. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 November 1916
Tianxmberoo South. Indignation and resentment were uppermost in the minds of residents in this part when it became known that once again the pump was hard at work pumping water (save the mark) oit of the swamp ihtc the large dam here. I understand a pe tition 'was some time ago forwarded to the proper authorities praying for an improvement in the water supply. This is evidently the answer. There is the consolation however, that while the water remains in its present un healthy state the demands on the dam will be light, and what is there will last. Locally fears are ex pressed that the sediment will block the pumps. Several attempts have been made to start a brranch of the Farmers Union here but each one has signally failed. No time; too far to go to attend meetings, and so forth, If events that are daily occurring do not stir the farmers into.action.caleculated to preserve their interests, their case is indeed bad. Those who did at tend with the intention of forming will now hav'e ...

* Walpeup War'bles. !armers are up to their eyes just now, hay cutting demanding every ounce of energy and every available minute.

After a lengthy preparation, the-.. local rifle range is now completed andi - ready for practice. The enthusiastie shots are talking of trying coaclusions with the Ouyen club shortly, but itis scarcely probahle that anything will happen in this direction until afltec harvest. The Roman Catholic Church cor mittee is out with the announcemens of a dance on Friday week, and unles the fickle Dame is more unrblihle. than usual, it is going to be a big affair.

Make Your District Known [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 November 1916
MIake Your District Known Concerning same parts of the dis tric- news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous power of knowing what is happening in all the places in the area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. SWill some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease? If no one else is doiong it for your district, will You try on these lines ? . Send accoants of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, concerts, matters touching on industries, etc. Secretaries of public concerns such as the Farmers' Union, can aid their cause considerably in this way. Don't bother about grammar or ~spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write'on one side of the paper only. Give information, baht let criticism alone.

Soldiers' Letters. Frank Gill, writing from France, says he had a couple of letters from Cal. Christie, who _ot a "bit of a scrastch" and was six weeks in hospi tal. Cal. was saying ,iim Mills was missing; I don't know if it is true or not. I passed his Company on the road one day, but didn't see Jim in it.

Tell The Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 November 1916
Tell The Truth. An old adage has it : "Tell the truth and shame the devil.". And the object of this article is to show to some at least of our readers the necessity of sometimes remembering that the memory of other people is not always bad. After a tremendous lot of finessing, the extra sixpence was declared available, and farmers were delighted, To go hack a bit: When the big drought was on, and many of the settlers in the newer Mallee ;were in that stage between sinkine and wondering for the future, the Government, in a purely busi ness like manner, agreed to make advances of seed and fodder, and in some instances, also helyed to keep the settlers alive. When these "ad vances were.made, a distinct promise was given that the repayments would be spread over three years-that is to say, one third would be taken out of each of three harvests until the whole (with interest of course) was rep:aid. Then came the Wheat Pool with the war, upsetting all calcula tions, and no one can say yet ...
Orange Blossoms. GLEN—CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 November 1916
Orange Blossoms. GLEN - CAMPBEL. The Public Hall at Nyang was the scene of a pretty wedding on October 11. The contracting parties were Mr. James Glen, of Tempy, and Miss L. Campbell, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Campbell, of Nyang. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mearns, Presbyterian minister, and there was a very large and interested assemblage to watch the proceedings. &nbsp; The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a bewitching dress of white silk, with the customary wreath-and veil. She was attended &nbsp; by Miss D. Booley, as bridesmaid, while Mr. J. Thrower was best man, a character, somehow; we fancy to have seen him in before. Additional &nbsp; interest was lent to the ceremony by the fact that the groom is one of the Empire's heroes, and has been retur- ned unfit for active service, while the bride has two brothers now helping to prod Fritz along towards Berlin. The popularity of the young couple was shown in many ways, but ...

Hie rushes into publicity with the panic bawl of a eonseless being, too cowardly to fight for his country and his womenfolk and worse still, tried to induce others to contribute to his safety by means of a most improbable tale. He then got off his anti mat and in all his subsequent Ietters he he has not tried to~jusif~ his attitude, but by extensive clippings from Bill Shakespearen which have not the slightest bearing on conscription, he tries to cloud the original subject.
