Christmas. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 20 December 1916
Christmas. It is hard to realise at this juncture that the proclamation was made, "Peace on earth; good will to all men." The whole of Europe echoing and resounding with the sound of the greatest arms the world ever dreamt of; thousands of lives sacrificed every hour; many thousands more limbs shattered and constitutions ruined, and Christmas Day will probably be celebrated on the many battlefields a greater orgy of slaughter than ever. What a travesty on our boast- ed civilization. To-day the greatest nations vie with the greatest savage in his methods of killing and his lust for blood. Some few years ago, one of the foremost writers of sensational novels said: Civilization is merely skin deep. Let a man punch you on the nose and see how quickly the &nbsp; &ve comes to the surface. LNo need in this war to get that punch on the nose. It only requires that a man expose himself for a second for a dozen rifles to speak in the effort to &nbsp; wipe out another li...

Boschert's farm is to be seen one (of the best crops in the district. It looks like a nine bagger. If you ask him how it's done he will tell you. The Tempy Tennis Club is offering a reward for a fine looking player who has been absent for some weeks. A honeymoon takes time.

There was no need to ask where the outbreak was, for dense columns of smoke luridly lit up proved Mitchell street to be the locality.

Although a timely bckeIt of water--had it been avail able-would have prevented the dis as:er, it soon bec.tme apparent that no human power could save the buil dinz, and all the crowd could do wzLs to secure as far as possible, the out buildings of Mr. O'Loughlia's premi ses.
