The Water Question. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

The Water Euestion. "Surprised" writes us in a plaintive strain from Galah : Sir,-It was with disgust that I read in the last issue of the MAIL that a petition is being taken around asking that several parishes be excised-from the Water Supply area. Is the drought so far behind us that already we forget ? Surely, Sir, those responsible for the peti tion are uuacquainted with what water means. I have had consid erable experience in waterless dis tricts, and also in districts where the channels run, and can say the difference is simply incalculable. Even with a big dam handy, surely channels must save considerably. Water carting is bad at any time, but when it is quite unnecessary, the man who votes to make it ne cessary is beyond all reason. Let the farmers think well before they sign. Last year proved that tax unpaid for water was money badly saved, and if we only had chan nels then, what a lot of water rates in the price of horseflesh had been saved. I, for one, would signs a petit...

A Timely Note. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

A T-i mely Note. From the annual report of the Society for the Prevention of Cru elty to Animals, we take the fol lowing pertinent clause. Comment is needless :-Drought.-For many years your committee has urged upon owners of animals the neces sity for making provision for per iods of scarcity by the use of the silo. These periods cause an im mense amount of suffering to ani mals and loss to owners, but they come so rarely that too many per sons prefer to take the risk rather than make preparation. The past year, however, has been pre-emin ently severe so that it may be hoped thyt its lesson will be taken to heart, and that owners will learn the moral duty and personal profit of using ensilage.

Inexhaustible Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Inexhaustible Wealth. Sounds tempting, doesn't it? And yet it lays literally at your door. Out of evil cometh good, and when the war is over we must not forget a lot of the lessons Ger many taught us. Right away back we started exporting our raw material and, as we grew, paid the man who took it away most handsomely for returning us the finished article. That was good business-for the other fellow, but rotten business from our stand point. We recognise this to a great extent now, and in some re spects are rectifying the error, also to an extent, But there is a long road to travel ere we rid ourselves of the conservation which has held us in its thrall up to now. It is a funny thing that we cannot get it out of our minds that what father did must he the right thing. So it was in father's time--or perhaps more correctly speaking-in grand father's time. But father came to Australia, and although he reccg nised that everything was upside down, he still clung to his father's ideas, and t...

Roman Catholic Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Roman athocUic Ball.

Th hall had been completely trars formed. The shell walls werehid. den in greenery and colored ri,: bons. Each of the cross stay. carried its festoon of flags, t ose of the Entente powers being everywhere. (No, there were acre of the enemy allies, for the co0 mittee had more re?pect for thenm selves) The stage was draped with curtains on which were horse shoes inscribed "Good Lcck," while across the top of the pro scenium Cead: Mille Failthe sent out its hundred million welcomes. The decorations were very kindly loaned by Mrs. T. Grace, of Bir chip, and erected. by the lady members of the Ouyen congrega tion. The universal approval of those who viewed them was the reward.

Sad Drowning Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Sad Drowning eccident. The sympathy of our readers will go out to Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Latimer, of Wagant, who lost a bright little boy of 3% years, by drowning on Monday evening. The little chap was playing about the house, and later being missed by his mother, a search was made. By the dam, a dog stood watching, and this fact drew Mrs. Latimer. To her horror, the body of the child was floating on his back. Hastily withdrawing it, Mrs Lati mer used every endeavor to bring life back, and on the return of Mr. Latimer from his worn in the pad dock later, further efforts were made, but unavailingly. It is hard on the parents, and nothing that can be done will fill the place of little Norman.

What Next? [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

What Next? It was in July of last year that war broke out. Every day we are learning more of the reasons, and every day we are learning what to do in the future. The question comes-will we do it ? Ever since 1871, when Prussia rose triumph ant from her struggle with France, one aim and object has covered the German horizon. That is the world's dominance. Not only in militarism, but in trade, and the way for the one was to be through the other. Today Belgium and Poland are under the Prussian heel, and the very happenings there are making the allied nations in the struggle the more determined to end the war only with victory ; with German militarism squelched, and with a resolution that so far as human intelligence can do, prevent any future uprising in that direc tion. To a lot of people, the war seems a long way off from Aus tralia. But it is not. It is just as real to us as if the enemy ships were bombarding our coastal cities, and the land forces pushing across the continent we ar...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Local and General. On Friday night the Pops. will take the form of Empire night, and the attendance should go a long way towards establishing another1 record. You will be there, of course. We have received a nicely prin ted and got up copy of a pamphlet entitled "Administration of the Government." This gives the speeches of Sir Alick Peacock and Mr. Hutchinson, Minister for Ag riculture, in reply to the recent motion of no-confidence. It would be interesting to know who paid for these affairs. Did the Minis ters part up themselves or is it an other case of taxpayer ? Resident in the town and dis trict are a number of members of the Australian Natives' Associa tion. This is a national body which in the past has done mag nificent work, and it has all the future before it, irrespective of be- I ing a friendly society. These re sident members are far removed from branches, and therefore de nied the accruing benefits. An attempt is being made to overcome the difficulty by forming a brauc...

Harvest Finances. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

harvest FinanCes. There is not a doubt that a big harvest has to be taken off this year, and farmers are faced with a .b difficulty. Finance is the big gest, in fact it usually is. Follow i on the assistance given by the Government to put the crop in, further assistance is now necessary in several instances to take it off. The Gove;nment is quite prepared to do this, but not in a general way. Each case will be dealt with absolutely on its merits. Whatthe farmer has to do is make an appli cation on one of the Relief forms, and the claim will be dealt with promptly, it is to be hoped. We told our readers this some time ago but some memories are like sieves. There will be no Board sittings as before, but each must make ap plication individua'ly through the post, on the form specified. Another matter troubling some at present, is freight on the necessary machinery. Once again things are satisfactory. In reply to represen tations made oy the Hon. John Gray, M.L.A., the acting-secretary f...

Wagant Whispers. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Wagant Whispers. At the annual meeting of the Wagant, Boorongie and Woornack Progress Association on Thursday last, there was a good attendance. Mr. G. A. Lewis was elected chair man, and Mr. T. A. Latimer hon. sec. and treasurer, for the ensuing 12 months. To keep in line, a so cial evening is to be held on Octo ber 20, with tickets 2/6 each. The Australian Wounded Soldiers' Fund wilI get the proceeds. Mr. Lewis will lend the piano, Mr. A. M'Ken zie is responsible for the violin and seeing that a pianist is there. A sub-committee will arrange details, and as to refreshments-well the Mallee will lose a lot of its reputa tion if that portion of the program is not seen to. The promises in the room were a sufficient reply to any suggestion of neglect. The sale of tickets in the room augurs well for the night. In the matter of general business attention was drawn to roads, sandscooping, tele phones, tanks, etc., and the secre tary will find ample employment for his spare time in writing...

Ouyen Recruiting Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Ouyen Recruiting eoma mittee. At the usual fortnightiv meeting of the above body on Saturday night, Mr H. W. Pickering pre sided in a good attendance. A matter of some concern was brought under notice by a deputa tion, and referred to the president and secretary to handle judicious 'y. Recognising the great danger from fire this year, it was decided to ask Walpeu shire council to move in the matter of urging on farmers the necessity, in their own interests, of providing ample fire breaks around crops. Shire coun cils throughout the notthern areas should take up this most important subject. A sample walking stick, made from a mallee shoot, was shown members, and recognising that un less already overstocked, these should prove useful to the Red Cross Societies, it was decided to request the Ouyen branch to inquire if any sticks, crutches, splints, etc., are required. If so, an effort will be made to form a class for work in this direction. Next Saturday week, a general meeting of pari...

Ouyen Reticulation Scheme [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Ouyen Reticulation Schenme "Cleanliness" has a word on our leader of last issue : Sir,-Your timely remarks on the town water supply are com mendable. The people needed some such reminder of the facts. and the M zI, is doing good work in this direction. To a commun ity like ours, and in such a cli mate, the daily bath is practically a necessity. Even in the winter it is necessary to have a tub pretty often, if only to remove some of the surplus soil which no one can help gathering almost daily. From a fire prevention standpoint, the proposed scheme is out of the question. Fire hoses I under stand, are 2/ inches in diameter, and that being so, it would not take much calculation to say how many could be supplied from a 2 % inch pipe. Seeing that a start has been made with the scheme, I think a movement should be made to obtain a supply through pipes of sufficient size to ensure water for everyone. No one believes that Ouyen will remain at its pre sent size for even a year's time, and t...

Urgent Road Works. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

Urgent Road Works. Under date 29/9/'15, Jas. Forbes writes from Nyang as follows: Sir,-Since your vaper circulates far and wide through the length and breadth of the district, and finds its way into queer places, you will not, I am sure, feel a bit sur prised to hear yelps and a "yowl" from Guarr jungle. I was quite taken with a letter from the Coun try Roads Board, published in your paper, requesting the council to do nothing but very urgent works till after harvest. As at present there are on all sides indications of very heavy crops, it would seem that good roads to convey wheat to the nearest railway station are the most urgent works required, and that no effort should be spared to put the roads in decent order. Such, however, does not appear to be the opinion held by the members of the C.R.B., who are going to wait till after harvest. The ques tion naturally arises : What will they do then ? Echo whispers : Devilish little. And judging from the past one would think so. It must,...

Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 29 September 1915

" Weather. Still what you want, is the re- port for the week. On Thursday night last Ouyen got a visitation which left its mark. For days pre- viously, one did not require to be very wise in meteorology to see that another downpour was immi- nent. And it came. Late in the evening the rain started, and it came in such a tropical downpour that channels were taxed to their utmost. The railway dam already encroaching on the bank, found the drains running at their utmost capacity. The east side bank was evidently not built to withstand such a rush, and it refused to do more than in reason. Fortunately Ganger Rees was handy, and see ing it was useless to attempt to stem the flow, did the next best thing, and that was to get a gang handy to repair the inevitable dam age to the Murrayville line. For the distance of the best part of a chain, the big body of water from the dam flowed accross the Line,and very soon the sleepers were like Mahomet's coffin, suspended be- tween Heaven and earth. ...

Agricultural Colleges. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

ggiricultural eolleges. Mr. H. Pye, Principal of the Dookie Agricultural College, in his report for September, states that the prospects of the season are so far very favorable to the production of good harvest returns. The early sown wheat crops are not as good as those sown later in the season The grazing areas have not been looking go well for many seasons past and in consequence the live jtock has he.:efited considerably and is iapidly putting on condition. The demand for pigs has been good. Orders for over £,175 worth have been despatched during the month, and others have yet to be supplied. The demand for the large Yorks has been better than at any season during the last decade. Mr. Pye is a believer in the large York as the best pig for crossing purposes with the Berkshire and Middle York to produce good baconers. Unfortu nately, there are very few studs of large Yorks in the Commonwealth, and it is hard to get a change of blood without importing from Bri This is the busiest ...
