Concert At Galah. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 13 December 1916
Concert At bGalah. -It is rather beiated, but a good thing will always keep. On the 20?tb nlt., Galah residents, as well as some visitors, had a treat to boe remembered. Practically all concerts carry a re mnembrance to a certain degree, b'out the0one under notice was made mem orable because of tLe opportunity gi van to hear an artiste with the full glare of the city reputation still alive. Miss Nellie Summerviile is the pos sessor of a rich csctralto voice, and what is more unusual, has the know )edge of its use. It is a rare gift and bthe district is to be congratulated on having the proud possessor of it as a sesident. At this concert, Miss Bell (Paignie) played the overture and the eccompaniments throughout the eve ning, and' no comment of ours could -convey the impression conveyed, but the fact that the artistes and the au dience were pleased needs no further comment' Mrs. E. Hnmmel(Under bool) sang the old favorite, Killarney, and delighted her hearers.. M.r. G. "Yalentine, wh...

Make Your District Known [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 13 December 1916
.aake Your District Known -- --4P .. Concerning same parts of the dis trict 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 bhe fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease? If no one else is doing it for your district, will You try on these lines? Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood, such as weddings, deaths, ieei-. dents, concerts, nmastters touching on inaustries, etc. Secretaries of public concerns such as the Farmrners' Unioon, can aid their cause considerably ir this way. Don't b'ther a!)out crammar o spelling; it is the I?itor's work to look after these trilies. The barest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give information, but let criticias" alone.

i W Talpeup Warbles. Farmers have mostly finished hay carting and are now anxiously wait ing for Jupiter Pluvius to put the plug in his watering can so. that strip ping may be started. Oa all sides we hear of big returns to go into the babg, and if these pan out t~ evern the half, Lloyd George's. ships will be kept. going their hardest. A heavy downpour of rain came on Friday evening, 70' points being re uistered in half an hour. Uip to the time of writing, no serious damage to crops has been reported. Grassis -still gree?, -and prOiises .to_. remain rrPfsr some ?-~idei?rable time yet. Fancy, green grass in the Mallee at Christmas! Despite the downpour mentioned above, ?the R.C.

Walpeup Shire Council. * CLERKS OF WOIRKS REPORTS. [The following repcrts, with deci. sions thereon, were-uuavoidably held over from last issue.] The Clerk of Works for the East ridiung (Mr. A. A. Peverill). reported having inspedted pioposed deviaton at block 14, Boulka, and find it would require from 50 to 60 chains on this road to make it good, the present road running along the top of a sand hill.-Recelved. Re fence on Mr. Murnane's block, Paignie, one half is two barb wires and the other two plain galvanised, and posts three to the chain. Mr. Mururne informs me he erected half the fence. The fence runs north from a water reserve, but apparently is very little used, and a wire is across it at the present time.-As this new road was put in by the L'nds department, the council can not expend any money on the fenc ing, while as for compensation, the department is liable, if anyone. Re deviation at Labb's, Mr. A. J. Deanhas removed fence, and as there was not sufficient wire to com p...
Panitya Points. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 13 December 1916
Panitya Points. Stripping has started in a few ca ses, and Ithereis no doubt that last year's record is going to be well passed. On Friday aight a severe thunder jtorm passed over this distriet, doing a c3nsiderable amount of damage to crops, especially early varieties. Mir. W. Manley, whose residence hap pened to be in the line of the eyclone, .vas rather a heavy loser, hasing one t arge tent that was on a framne htowvn completely away, and his new hoause blown over to such an extent that it will cost a considerable surm to havE it again made habitable. There will be seven wheat buyers in the Panitya yard this s?,soo. This is a healthy sign for a two-year old station. [Report of Farmers' Union moet ing unavoidably held over. Ed. M.] Take a glance over the advt. col umns, they are of much interest.

1 Jn a season such as. this, anticipa tious of a grand return for the l.ibor expended, is tinged with anxiety. A pr-oifitic gowth of grass, such :as the!

There is, ofi course, another. individual that is worse than careless, but against him I there is ns protection. Thursday last was a day to be dreaded, and, as events turned out, the district has. every reason to be thankful the sea son is an exceptionally late .one. During the height of the storm, more than one townsman remarked on the smell of burning, and as evening closed in, a brilliant reflection to the nor'-west indicated a fire of consider able dimensions, but until the night train came in no one could locate it. Then we learnt it was at Kia, and next day the facts came out. A fire had started in Mr. A. A. Peverill's roll...

----«-C-- Mallee Wiiter Supplw. In the area of the north-we.st ,'f.i lee, about the Ouyen to Murrayvil!e railway, the Water Commission i3 puz'ng down a further series c :*i. bores, to fil in gaps which e:-ist :n ihe bore service. When those .e- completed there will be about 90 boe:ts of water, which will afford serivu- zo about SO farms. The primary i,:r pose of these bores is to provide \,ra ter until a settler can himself provide his own water supply ; bu it isa ouod that the depth of water, more partica larly in the eastern portion of the bore area, is almost to great to per mit of individual action. A proposal is being considered for a large in crease in the number of bores, con ditionally on the settlers undertaking to pay the increased charges for a full service. In the other parts of the north west mallee area, the commission is endeavoring to connect various points with the Wimmera- Mallee water schenes.
