Co-operation [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 28 February 1917

so-o:eracian "Co-operation Every Time" re Splies:- Sir,---Your correspolndent "Ouyen" is 'not quite so broad as his nom de plume would suggest. Also he reads into my letter what I never putthere. : :What "'Experil ence" said in particular, I uphold. in general. I am not interested in either of the big co-operative con cerns arguing for our trade, but E am interested in the matter of co operation among the primary pro ducers. "Ouyen" refers to the time when the Pool is efided. May none of us living today see that, unless it is to see the farmers as a. whole conditcting their own pool without interference by the middle man and consequent parasite. E' agree that the merchants .in the past have made their aerrangements most perfectly, with the result that one died a millionaire and a big lump over; another took £117,000 odd out of the last pool, and others bid fair to get quite as much, if not more so this year. It is needless to argue on possibilities, but any one who thinks at all, mu...

The Returned Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 28 February 1917

The aeLumnled Soldier. What is becoming a too well known sight in the city of Melbourne is the ehtr-a- bane with a brass band lead iog a fleet of motor cars. These ,cars, sometimes more than a hundred in number, are those used to bring the returning sick and wounded sold iers from the hospital ship, to the Victoria Barracks, from whence they are finally distributed to the various mnilitary hospitals in and around Mel bourne. The sight of these men beings home to those who see them pass, some little knowledge of the fact that the men are now coming Shck. and it mu.- make hi'm think of -what is to become of these men when they are finaily :suchargetd from mili tary service. Ma?y oi them are rnaimed, some will lose, or lost the ,s.e of a hand, an arm, or a leg; others have injuries cf a more or less permanent nature, whilst all are back here for the full and sufficient reason that they are nofit for further mili tary service. They are the men who have served their King and Coantry, and...

"Wherever ;one g?.es among the soldiers,"' writes a recent visitcr to tbe British lines in France, " there Ye finds the Y.M.C.A. doing its bit, and doing it cheerily and thorcughly. I was one cf a party that made its way towards the forward lines last week. It is dark, and raining; the desolation and the mud increase, but the cheeriness and quiet confidence of our armies appear to inc;ease im mensely. On one occasion I had to travel along a dangerous road for some miles with lights out, and at last come to a dead city, destroyed almost completely, and buried in the da:kness ct the night. .No sound could be heard as our party made its way along the ruined streets, till, on turning a corner, the tinkle of a piano strnck across the darkness and sil ence.

Move, Somebody. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 28 February 1917

lMove, Scnmebody. S~- hen a new line of railway is t:hiir, :he tendency towards economy is :o re olten than not disastrous. T:,, Ouyen-Murrayville section is a ca1s in point. The whole tun was .u, down, in the first place, not on rhe ,i;ht line. It sbould have been furti,er north, and a much better irrf- rei-ulted. Having been decided cr., here it is. grades are bad, and the f hole line belnt light, loads have to ht ? also. Aµ a ccnlequtl-nce in the near future. the line mues he regraded and relaid. But we will give the Commissioners the benefit of that. They were not as farseeing as the late E. H. Lascelles, therefore could not imagine the time would come in the near future when they wtuld be callcJ on to handle some two million bags of wheat in one sea son on an 80 mile line. But one very big error was the absurdly short loop lines put down at most of the stations. It most have been appar ent to any but the densest of eugin eering brains that if these sidings were ever to be of us...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 7 March 1917

ILocal and General. From the publishers, Messrs. Mitchell and Casey, Melbourne, we have received a copy of the second issue of the " Home Gardener." Amateurs will find the contents in structive and interesting, and as the price is only the humble traybit per month, we can honestly recommend it for general perusal When our water supply is a fact, our town residences should each have both its flower and vegetable garden. Not the only ones. Rainbow people have had a fair experience of both, and now the business. por tion at least have arrived at the conclusion that Saturday is the best day for the half holiday, and steps are being taken to revert to it. The mice plague is gradually ad vancing. Ouyen is just experienc ing the advance guard, but the main body is not yet here. We wire pleased to notice that one at least of the district agents for receiving wheat took time by the forelock, and. has' plentifully sprinkled his stack with sulphur. This is cheap enough, and the result will be ...

Someone's Shilling—What it Did. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 7 March 1917

Someone's Shilling-What it Did. This is a true story! Walking down a suburban street .one day a lady picked up a shilling. Not being possible to find the owner, she en tered the local bank, inscuibed her name and address on the subscrip tion list of the Overseas Club 'South erd Cross Tcbaco jFubnnd hided over the shilling-and promptly forgot the incident. Imagine her feelings when last mail she received a letter from a soldier, in which he wrote :-Your gift of Havelock cigarettes has juss come to band, so here I am to thank you. I will just tell you of a little coincidence to show how'- well the gift was 'appreciated, also how oppor tune the moment of its arrival. Yes terday our officer gave permission for a messenger to visit a canteen away back from the "line," so amongst other articles a couple of friends and myself ordered tins of cigarettes. Oar disappointment was keen when the messenger arrived to-day and re ported no cigarettes at all were avail able. Then your gift turns up....

It is no use saying so long, as we have the goods to offer so long can we do the financing; that is only a statement, and not fact.

Disastrous Fires. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 7 March 1917

Disastrous Fires. On Sunday week, the residence of Mr. V. F. Pals, Nyang, was com- pletely destroyed by fire. Mr. Pals, who has been carrying on the farm in the absence of his brother, who is away in France doing his bit for you and me, had left the place on a visit to a neighbor, and it was during his absence that the outbreak occurred, so no tangible reason can be assigned. The whole of the contents, including two wheat scripts, some banknotes, a gig, furniture and clothing, were all destroyed, while a quantity of seed wheat was seriously damaged. There was no insurance, so the loss is ex- ceptionally severe. About 2 a.m., on Monday, the people of Woomelang were startled by the clanging of the fire alarm, and the brigade got to work promptly. The scene of the outbreak was the business place and dwelling of Mr. W. A. Houghton, situated in the centre of Brocke-st., and from the first it was seen that nothing could save the premises, so the brigade turned its attention to the butcher...
