MYRNIONG. (iROM OUR OWN CORRSPONDUNT.) During the week we had a nice rainfall of 81 points, which has been of great value to the producing in terests. The annual.meeting of shareholhl ers in the local Butter factory was held on Saturday. At the appointed hour a quorum was not present, but by "rounding up" several share holders the required number were : obtained. Mr. James Mlyers (Chair man of Directors, piesided) and re gretted the company's business for the past year had not been attended with that success which had char acteriised the management for sev eral years past. The severity of the drought was in a measure re sponsible for the loss of £153. He hoped, however, the present season would show a return to the old order of success. He moved the adoption of the report and balance sheet, which was seconded by MLir. Thos. Fagg, and carried. The re tiring Directors, Messrs. J. Myers, and R.

BALLIANG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 September 1915

BALLIANG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) We have had. a nice rain, and the crops are looking well. The fancy dress ball, in aid of the Red Cross fund, held in the An akie hail, was packed to the doors, and everything went off splendidly. Eight'of the Balliang children danced a set representing "Our Flag,"..and won the admiration of all. Great credit is due to Mrs. Ward, Mrs. McMahon, and Miss Reale, who spared no trouble in training them. A picnic in connection witi the Methodist Sunday school was held in the local Park on Wednesday, when a number of people attended. The children had a good time of it, and returned to their homes quite satisfied. Our local troop of volunteers are sticking to their drill splendidly, and will soon be ready for the tren diches. Rifle exercises with sticks on Saturday-cannot get rifles. The In structor (Lieut. Vanstan) put them through sword drill last Saturday, and some vicious cuts were recorded.

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 52. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 September 1915

* . *BACOClHUS MARSH., - By W. WILLLuu ,l B.A. * No. 52. : Andrew George Scott ("Captain *;i Moonlite") has been frequently al luded to. Undoubtedly he was. pos .sessed of much ability, and many were the friends he made locally, but there was that malignant strain ' in his make-up, the bar sinister, and you can only come to one con clusion-that his life here as a min ister of the Gospel was a living lie. I have already outlined his career, but the "Express' of June 15, 1872, -reprints from Ballarat "Evening Mai''" Scott's -daring escape, with - five other prisoners, from the Balla rat gaol, and I believe just a new structure. He was in prison await ing his trial for a bank robbery. The two leaders were Scott and James Plunkett, alias Roach, an ar rant scoundrel, who once narrowly escaped hanging, and was under a sentence of three years for robbery under arms in Learmonth district. Scott and Plunkett occupied adjoin .. ing cells; about 18in. of brickwork formed the partition between ...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Harrie Oliver, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Oliver, of Bac chus Marsh: Heliopolis Camp, Egypt, 11/8/15. Our food .is very good now. We have a cooker presented by the Bal larat Red Cross, and it turns out perfect tucker. Of course we do not get roast turkey and pudding, but still, the chap who complains about the food now wants some thing to talk about. When we .ar rived here first the food was not too good, so we held a meeting, and complained, and soon things began to improve. One day they gave us boiled eggs that had seen better days. By jingo, we did kick up a shine! They also ran out of bread, so they had to give us hard biscuits, and stale bread. The eggs were collected- in a heap, and faces painted on them, also a large notice reading-"Fine collection of curios; 2,000 years old!" A big biscuit was put in a prominent place, with the notice, "Give us this day our daily bread!" This and similar other notices had the desired effect. Our day's work is-Rev...
