Latest Cables LONDON, Friday night. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

iLwifSSl WllllSd LONDON, Friday night. Lord Kitchener has been in France, in specting the forces on the Western front, and reviewing the troops. He hopes to ad Tance soon. He is thoroughly well pleased with the work that has been done. He also states that he and the French general have a plan which in due time would be made known. ™A''kew York correspondent states that Lord Kitchener has invented a new shell, which is expected to do great execution. This shell will be used in the nest move ment. A message from Geneva (Switzerland) states that it is estimated that during the last few days between 100,000 and 200,000 Germans have been taken from the Western front to Russia. This movement still con tinues. The German losses are estimated at 80, 000 per week. The Russians are making a bold defence against the Germans beyond Koveno.

Hampton [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

Hampton (From our own correspondent.) During the last week two of the members of the Hampton Rifle Club volunteered for service with the Expeditionary Forces. The volunteers were Herbert Boyd and Frank Cullen (Lowther). The former failed to pass the medical test at Lithgow, owing to a foot being Injured a few years ago. The latter passed all tests flying in Lithgow, but on reaching the metropolis was turned down owing to defective eyesight. The officials in Sydney must be very exacting, as Frank was one of the rifle club's best shots up to 600 yards. The latest from Fred Marshall is that he is still in hospital at the Liver pool camp suffering from varicose veins. Some months ago some of our enterprising farmers completed netting in their holdings as a protection against the destructive rab bits. Another plaimant for the farmers' con sideration — the wombat— soon showed that wire-netting was little defence against his ravages and rootings. The perplexed far mers then appealed to Cse...

Wounded Soldiers' Ball A BRILLIANT SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

Wounded Soldiers' Bail A BRILLIANT SUCCESS. There is no doubt about the loyalty of Lithgow people— men, women, and children — to the flag and the boys at the front. Whatever may be the name of the move ment, support in great measure is always assured. Tuesday night's ball in aid of the wounded soldiers was no exception. The Trades Hall inside wore a gay appearance. Buting dangled from the ceiling and was festooned round the walls in gay array, blending harmoniously with the handsome costumes worn by the bevy of fair Terp sichorean trippers who light-heartedly whirled the hours away in the mazy. waltz or Highland schottische. The stage was also prettily arranged with drawing-room seats, settees, etc., whilst gypsy tables were promisicuously placed around for those who might desire to rest or indulge in a game of cards. This seating was largely availed of during the night, the spectators having a splendid view of the moving show. , The floor was in very good order. We under stand the ...

FOOTBALL. RUGBY LEAGUE. ALL BLACKS V. SCHOOL OF ARTS. The All Blacks left no doubt as to their superiority over the School of Arts repre sentatives by defeating them by 15 points to nil. The conditions were ideal for foot ball, and a good exposition of the game was expected, but for the most it was a tame affair. The referee failed to open the game up and Avas subject to frequent ad vice from the spectators.

BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

BOXING. A possible match in Sydney for next month is Les Darcy and Harry Reeve. It was announced on Monday last that arrangements had been completed for bring ing Les Darcy and Billy Murray together oir September 4. This from 'Boxing' sounds like a tale from fairyland: — 'The: fruits of success Jess Willard pulls £240 per day from the box oflice receipts of a Wild West show.' The Watson-McCoy contest was deferred again last week, the reason this time be ing that the American could not come down to the weight. Like so many other visitors to this country from across the seas, he finds it very easy to put on poundage. Les Darcy, looking the picture of health, was in Sydney on Monday, when he fixed up matters relating to his meeting with Murray. Unlike many champions, Darcy has not gone to the stage, but, in a sense, the stage has come to him, for arrangements ha.ve been made for a picture story of his life, embracing the many and varied inci dents of his career. And, of course, there i...

Sofala. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915

Sofala. (From our own correspondent.) A very handsome donation to the funds of the Sofala District Hospital from the Walter Eliza Hall Trust was last week re- ceived by the secretary, Mr. A. W. Taylor, in the shape of a cheque for £25, enclosed in a very nice letter expressive of sympathy and interest in such institutions; but at the same time explaining that the gift was simply a donation, not an annuity. Alluvial mining is practically at a stand- still. I regret to state that I learn from     good authority that Mr. Woods has failed to complete the purchase of Riley Bros. reef at Wattle Flat, as they have declined to accept his offer, which would appear a very fair, if not a liberal, one. Independent of which they would have had the advantage of permanent employment. Mr. Woods is said to have lost over £100 by the two crushings taken out of the reef, but is still willing to stand to his offer. The first fire is to be placed in the boiler at the Queens- la...
