RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 18 September 1915
RIFLE SHOOTING. Fourteen members of the Bacchus Marsh Rifle Club visited Ballan on Saturday last, and fired a match against the Club there. The day was cold and showery, and towards the finish of the match a heavy fog came up, which completely hid lthe targets from view. Some of the team were unfortunate in having to shoot in this mist, and it became so bad when the last four men had half completed their shots that they had to cease, and an average struck. When the totals were arrived at, it was found that Bacchus Marsh had gained a victory by the narrow margin of two points, the totals being 586 and 584. The visitors were agreeably surprised at the vic tory, which they did not expect, as they had done no shooting for over two years, and some as long as three and four years, owing to the local range being closed down. The conditions were 7 shots at 200 and 500 yards, 14 men aside, 10 to count-rather too many for a short afternoon. The highest scorer for the day was H. L. Simon, with...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 18 September 1915
THE Peacock Ministry is still in office, but not in power, no Ministry is ever that in. Victoria. The Age manipulates the factors, with an occasional dirty left from the Argus. It is a delusion to suppose that there is any Responsible Govern ment. It would be far better to have Unification, and much cheaper. There would then be dignity, and efficiency. In the whole of Australia there is no competent leader visible. Drift and gabble rule the whole continent. Social in Exford hall on Friday next, 24th inst., in aid of Red Cross fund. The Melton Gun club will hold its monthly shoot to-day, when the Golden Fleece trophy will be ad vanced another stage. Open sweep stakes to follow. A nice lot of birds have bedn secured.

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 18 September 1915
SOLDIERS' -LETTERS. S Notes from Trooper Colin Todd, son of Mr. J. N. Todd, Bacchus Marsh: Gallipoli, July 12.-Just a line to let you know I am quite well. All the Marsh colts are well. None wounded in our Troop yet, although we have been here for nearly two months. We often get shelled pretty heavily, but somehow we have the luck to miss being hit. The Turks put a lot of shells across to-night, but they did very little damage. There is plenty of hard work here the pick and shovel play a great part in this war. 15th.-An eighteen-pounder shell has just" fallen into the middle of our Troop's dugouts, but fortun ately it did not explode, and did no S damage. I had rather a narrow squeak yesterday, as one of the S water cans I had in my hand was pierced with a shrapnel bullet. Needless to say, the can was useless afterwards. I have seen Colin Thomas several times lately, and he seems to be quite happy; but I be lieve he has had some very lucky escapes. [It has been officially re ported ...

The abrupt change f~iom one feed to the other is more or less harmful to' the cow. The logical step is to gradually de crease the hay feed, but not stop it entirely. Even when pasture is at its best, a small ration can be pro fitably fed. Grass alone, while rich in protein, does not contain enough stength buildiaong elemeat.
