KOROHG VALE NEWS Rail-may Construction Work [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

KOROHG VALE NEWS Rail-may Construction Worh The work of relaying the Korong Vale-Wychcproof line was commen ced last week when a batch of over 100 men arrived here, half subseq uently going to Wychitella. The work is hardly of such urgency as would demand its undertaking during the curcncy of the harvest, • > there is either a surplus of men on the labor market at a time when a scarcity was anticipated, or else the Commissioners arc callous to the important requirements of farmers at a critical period. So far as \vc can learn there is no actual shortage of farm labor in this district, neither docs there appear to be a surplus, but the demand for wheat lumpers is at present greater than the sup ply. However, the work of con struction goes on, and as it brings some "foreign capital" into the town there will be little to complain of, especially in the absence of any real shortage of men in harvest oper ations. Wheat Transport and Strlhos Owing to tile wheat lumpers' strike in Melbou...

AN OLD PIONEER PASSES MR. THOMAS CORNISH One of the old landmarks, and, at the same time, one of the best esteemed men of the district passed away on Monday inornsng, when Mr Thomas Cornish, of Kinypan iel, breathed his last. The late Mr Cornish was born iu Cornwall, England, 87 years ago and came to Australia in 1853. He started in the business of carrying and ar rived in Ballarat on the eventful evening of the Eureka stockade, camping within earshot of the cracking rifles which were but as a salute to the day-dawn and birth of Australian democracy. Next morn ing he witnessed the removal of the 'dead, from whose ashes the spark of wider liberty arose. L,ater he settled at Kingower and was there three years prior to the o[x*n ing of Inglewood. In partnership with Messrs Thomas and Bice he conducted a hotel, store and dairy. While there he interested himself in the Inglewood goldfields and in vested with success.

The Recruiting Canpaign [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

The Recruiting Canpaign We understand that as soon as the harvest is lifted there will be a good response to the country's call for men. We have heard several names mentioned as prospective re cruits and it is said that a goodly j number of the recruiting cards have been answered in the affirmative, denoting that young Australia is fired with the old spirit of the Brit ish race and is fully sensible to its call. The splendid loyalty, enthus iasm, self sacrifice and heroism dis played by our men on the field, by those who have enlisted or who are now about to enlist, and by the j people obliged to remain at home, . makes one prouder than ever of his | birthplacc, as he is jealous of the i liberties bequeathed him by his fore- j fathers out of centuries..of glorious I effort and unyielding tenacity, ancft nothing will be yielded now.

Lone Trooper's Romance. GIRL'S LETTER IN A SANDBAG. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

Lone Trooper's Romance. GIRL'S LETTER IN A SANDBAG. Outside King's Cross (London), a lank and limping Australian trooper from Gallipoll stepped up to a man and asked for "a light." He seemed just a bit strange and forsaken in London, and tho Englishman who accommo dated him with a match asked if he hatl frieuds in town. "Not In London town," the wounded man repliotl. "But Scotland way." Then, asking his new-found ac quaintance to step to where the glare of a (station lamp would enable him to read, the Australian pulled from his tunic-pocket a much-fingered letter. : "It's from a Dundee lass,'' he ex plained, "and I'm on iny way to see her and her parents and fix things up. This is how it came about. Folks in Dundee have been sending out sand bags, and It happened to be my job one day to 'turn' them—they always j arrive inside out—and fill them. Well, out of one tumbled a letter from Miss , of Dundee, saying if it fell into the hands of a lonely soldier sho'd be glad to cheer him up ...

An Appreciation. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

An Appreciation. (By Rev. F. K. Lesvin). To al tempt to write an article upon the Press would be to attempt to write upon a matter which is al together beyond mv limited capacity, but there are some things which are in one's limit in con nection with journalism, which it might not be out of place to men tion. The man who invented printing would be amazed if he could but get a glimpse to-day of the marvellous world-wide use to which his invention has been put. No one can possibly say what the ultimate issue of such an appliance will be. It is simply astonishing the mass of information poured out | from our newspaper offices day by day. Reading matter to suit all tastes, from light amusement to deep and well thought out articles on the great and burning questions of the hour. Iispecially at this time the whole of our concep tion of things at the front de pends upon what we read in the dailies. How much we depend on the truthfulness of their columns, their impartial judgment, and their...

What the Cerman People Say. A CHANGED WAR SPIRIT. A Danish traveller gives below his Impressions of the changed war spirit of the German people:— [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

What the Qerman People Say. A CHANGED WAR SPIRIT. A Danish traveller gives below his Impressions of the changed war spirit of the German people: — I was in Berlin when the war broke out mul have twice visited Germanv since. Each time 1 see a change in the spirit of the people. At first the enthusiasm was bound less. In all Germany one could not have found a German who was not only confident of victory but of a walk-over. This feeling of the people was crystallised in the saying of the Kaiser to his armies, "Before the leaves fall from the trees you will be back in your homos again." It was repeated at every street corner, and constant reminiscences of 1S70 were rounded off with boasts that "Our Army is now incomparably better and stronger." The German mood of exaltation lasted, with certain relapses, until last January, wtieu tiio economic pinch of the war begun to be felt. The first wave of disappointment was when the great rush of the German armies failed to reach Paris. It was a ...

"Mary," the Trench Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 13 January 1916

"Mary," the Trench Cow. Tho Rev. Ci. H. Donald, iu a letter to the congregation of the West Par ish Church, Aberdeen, published lu tho Aberdeen "Free Press," says: — "I was walking up a trench for the tirst time with the signalling officer, and as we trudged along suiiting the air I said to him, 'Hullo, there's a cow here!' Wo very soon found the cow iu a dug-out all its own, with the superscription 'Mary' and the little rhyme about a 'crumpled horn' and a 'dug-out that the French built.' "This cow is entered in the books as a 'trench store,' and has supplied j us with excellent milk. She has been well fed and well teuded. Ration bis cuits and grass are her staplo food. A soldier farm-boy lovingly tends her, and a sentry is set over her while she feeds on the precious grass plot at the edge of the wood lest some mar auding villain from the next battalion should covet her. "She's the picture of content, and the other day a shell burst twenty-five I yards from her dug-out and rained i...
