Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 January 1917
Cricket. The benedicts and bachelors had a go at the wicket and willow on Sat- urday, when the single men proved their superiority. The benedicts batted first, and thanks to Emmett and Bengelsdorff, amassed the res- pectable score of 87, Stanley account- ing for no less than seven wickets at a cost of 17 runs. For the bachelors, Ruse and Walters opened, and the former held up his wicket throughout, retiring with 50 up, including five fours. Stanley 19, and Kennedy 10, were the others to get into double figures. B. Emmett was best with &nbsp; the ball, getting 4 for 33. Following are the details :- MARRIED.

Officialdom. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 January 1917
Officialdom. "Annoyed," writing from Tempy, considers he has a grievance, but we are afraid that a Complaint would only receive a reference to regula- tions::-Sir,-Will you allow me a small space in your valuable paper to refer to the discourteous (not to use a harsher term) manner in which farmers have been treated in the 'Tempy yard. Recently three wag- gaons pulled in a little late. Two had just about finished unloading when the gates were locked on them, but owing to the gate leading to the pas- senger platform being open, they were able to get out by crossing the lines. This annoyed our lady S.M. so very much that when the agent was about to weigh off the third load he was emphatically defied by the official to touch it. The result was a lost day to the cocky, who had to take his horses out and return next morning for his wagon. If the agents and farmers are to be subject to this sort of thing the sooner we get peticoat government the better. I think the railway department migh...

Good News. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
Good News. We don't want to claim the credit, but here's the fact. In the matter of cornsacks, until recently as scarce as gold, the secretary of the Farmers' Union has secured 100 bales of nags for Ouyen. On Monday Mr. John Gray, M.L.A., wired that 100 bales of cornsacks are available on an order by the Bank, or drafts with order, on the Minister for Agricuiture. Ycu will want to get in early, the price I being 10/6 on trucks, Speocer-street. Tbere's a saving at once, and probably the extortion attempted will now be relaxed. There is, as we pointed out last week, no sbsrtage, but a corner was attempted, and the Governmeat, for once, stepped in to break it ap. Comment is unnecessary. The State schools will re open after the Christmas vacation on Tuesday next. Monday is a public holiday, being the celebration of Aussralia's Foundation Day, so the youngsters; get an extra one tacked on to the long, spell of holidays.

Although the fly is one of the moss dangerous pests tbat afflict the com munity, more particularly in the sun mer months, the lctal health suthoha tiuesert but little Effort to see e atho it is effectively dealt with. Spasmodic warnings are issued to householders, but no definite plan of campaign is i recognised, and in the meantime this Iisease-spr eading agency continues to abound. The residents ci Strath field, Sydney, bare been awakened to the dangers of the pest, and steps have been taken to cope with it.

Death of a Pioneer. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
Death of a Pioneer. Links l'with the early history ov Victoria are gradually beinz removed, and another snapped on Wednesday last. Away btck in the early- "is, there landed from Ireland Mr. Jas. Summers, then a man iu the thirties. He went tc Ballarat, when fares were £20 a head, and the male passengers had to do their share of pushing the ,vehicle. They were exeitinzg times, and the young Irishman saw the great struggle for democracy at Eureka. On January 24th, 180 (just 57 years ago to-day), he was married at St. Paul's Church, Geelnng, being then hngaged as an overseer on some of the important oailway lines in course of construction: This line he fol lowed for some years, travelling over many parts of Australia in his duties, both as overseer and contractor.

Fire At Tempy. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
Fire Af Tempy. A disastrous fire occurred at the farm of Mr. H. Basebert, close to Tempy, on Tuesday of last week. While chaffetnting was in progress, a spark from the engine set things gping, and soon the shed and hay stack were beyond saving. Fully 40 farmers and townspeople were promptly on the scene to do what was possible in preventing the spread of the devastating fiend, and so that nothisg he left to chance, a great numbei stayed all night. The lbss is estimated at over £400, and uni versal sympathy is expressed with the sufferer. It is hard enounh to beat bad years, but harder still to beat a fire. It is only a little over two years since Mir. Bosobert had an oil engine destroyed, also by fire.

Underbool Ugtterings. How soon we forget, or is it that what s everyone's work is no one's ?

Make Your District Known [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
.Alake Your District Known Concerning same parts, of the dis r- in- e uw comes but seldon. !Tlhis is tit the fault of the Ilditor, for he has no mictculous power of knowing what is happening in all the places in the arue of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and caute the silence to cease ? It no one else is doing it for your district, will Pou try on these lines ? Send accounts of public and social ,events in your township or neighbor 'hood, such as weddings, deaths, occi dents, concerts, matteis 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 spellinu; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. SWrite on one side of the paper .only.

Food for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
Food for Thought. The imports of Australia from America in the year ended June 30 Jast fell not very far short of f£1,OO,C0 , being an increase of 65,~J00,00, as compared with the previous 12 months, and more than £5,OCO.OCO in advance of our total exports to the United States. Aus tralia is not in a position at present to be able to regard with indifference s?ach an expansion of her imports from oany rcurce, and especially from . ccuntry outside the Empire. Her own icndustries are but little devel cped, acd there is ample scope for huisding up large volumes of trade in cc- eoctiou with locally manufactured g.ods~- ,What we have already done is a ufficieant guarantee of the possi ,itit:es which lie before us, and the colTsise of German and other enemy trade here turnished the occasion for a great leap forward. Unfortunately i~t has beern utilised in a half-hearted aIr':.. A large proportion of the -'od ohich have been imported not ,nir from America, but from other co-'etr'es, we mig...

The Returned Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
7TIe Returned Soldier. The State War Council is vrigor cusly prosecuting its campaign in the interests of thr returned Soldier. .nDai its fiches are filled by men whohave irturned from the front, dii who are only anxious, now they have discarded the kbaki and re n:.~ed to civilian life, to onoe more oca rue pruducintr units for them selves, and incidentally for the com :nirt as a whole. It is not tem poiar y relief these men require, al though this must be given to a large sumber owirg to the want c support ncoorded by many employers in the 30trer of supplying them with work I'f a nnture they ate eptted to carry mut. It is hardly to re efpited that a m.n who has been months under hospital treatmens can take his place in the ranks with the strong active man who has perhaps never known a dcv's sicktiess for years. Coose suentlv emplyecis must give these men a chance to gradually recover their old. form. Then again, many re now and will probably remain orittr-d to resume their former o...

That Flour Mill. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 January 1917
That Flour Mill Facts are vary stubborn things, and the one fact perhaps more stub born than another -is that cash is needful. As the scheme works cot, it is gradually becoming smoother, and ere another season passes, we may expect the Wheat Pool to be what was expected at the start. At the inception there were many diffi culties to surmount, but experience teaches, and one by one they are disappearing. One great thing is the prompt issue of certificates. Last year all cectiticates had to be referred to the Wheat Commission, and many of our readems know the awful ne glect that occurred. This year there is an improvement insofar that the orincipal agents issue certificates direct, except where liens exist. And this is where the district farmers are missing the titbit. Where floor mills exist, the miller issues the certificate at once, and that certificate is practi cally a cheque. There are many towns where the farmers are thus in the happy pcsition of being able to handle the procee...
