Mallee Relief. ATTITUDE OF THE BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 16 April 1915

Mallee Relief. ATTITUDE OF THE BOArD. In the opinion of the sub-com mittee of the State Cabinet, with Mr J. Gray (honorary Minister) a, chairman, to devise means of re lief for sufferers in the drought affected areas, the work of the Mialee Relief Board has been effec. tive. The sub-committee's views were expressed in the following statement made on Saturday : "'Statements have been made tc the effect that much distress, and even actual want, exists in the Mallee areas. The Cabinet relief committee is not convinced that these allegations are justified, as Ino case has been brought under its notice. It is, of course, true that there, as in other parts of the State, a certain amount of hardship is inevitable as a consequence of the disastrous seasons, but this is accepted cheerfully by the settlers, who have, as the investigations of the Mallee Relief Board in its travels disclose, been much more economical than would have been necessary under ordinary circum stances. All officers of ...

School Concert. IN AID OF BELGIUM FUND. AN UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 16 April 1915

School Concert. IN AID OF BELGIUM FUND. AN UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS. The Ouyen State School children held their benefit concert in aid oJ the Belgian Fund on Saturday evening before a crowded audience -and, judging by the applause occasioned throughout the perform ance, a well-pleased one, The performance took the form of a pantomime, entitled "Puss in Boots" (arranged by Mr and Mrs Edgar Williams and Mr R. Coust ley). The plot hinged on the present European war and pre <icted a happy termination and the downfallof the Allies' enemies. It was original and unique, and sDlendidly carried out. Britain's Allies were all represented, as also were Germany's. The limelight effects were beautiful and the trans formation scenes almost incredible in a country hall with no conveni ences to speak cf. Every credit is due to the child ren for the manner in which they carried out their respective parts, but unstinted praise must be be stowed on Mr and Mrs Edgar Williams for their untiring ef...

TO THE EDITOR OF OUYEN MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 16 April 1915

TU "3EE DITOR OF OUYEN MAIL. Srr,-Will you permit me, onr behalf of our school company, to make good through your columns an omission of Saturday last? We wish to thank all those who helped us. The appreciative criticisms of the pantom;me were very weicome. The willingness of the parents to allow their children to stay, often till very late, for all practices was most helpful. They are now doubly glad, we hope, that this co operation was given, seeing that the children did their parts with out even the need of any prompt ing, simply and a9preciatively, and preserving suich splendid discip line that they really helped and never bindered the management all through the scenes. But there are a few, even among so many good ones, who gave exceptionally of their own free time and holidays in doing the tiresome, tedious and unpleasant works. These were Elsie and Vera Hall, Annie Walsh, Bonnie Park, Eileen Kennedy, Harry Leach, Con. Kennedy, Jim Walsh and Mary Fuller. The basis of the pantom...

"PUSS IN BOOTS." TO THE EDITOR OF OUYEN MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 23 April 1915

" PUSS IN BCOTS." TO THE EDITOR OF OVYEN 3i?I?. SrR,-The appearan:e of this letter is due to the publicity given through the " Ouyen Mail" to some most gratifying expressions of praise of our pantomime, and to requests for its being repeated. In reply, I thank you and others for these appreciative criticisms. but am compelled to forego the pleasure of repeating- "Puss in Boots." The educational value :o the children was in the learning not to the earning of money. Our school has within twelve months prcduced two entertainments, the net proceeds aggregating about L.20. This. with an equal Go vernment subsidy we could have claimt d if the money had been for ourselves, represents over £40. And there is now great need at our school for money. Now we must settle down even more earnestly to our serious work of the 2 ear. If this advances well enough our school company may present an even more ambitious production after our examination. This will be for the many. many things we really need...

The Rabbit Pest. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 23 April 1915

'The Rabbit Pest. "A statement showing the value of the "Vermin Destruction Act " to the State has been prepared by the Chief Inspector (Mr F. E. Allan). The figures quoted prove conclusively that the inspector and his officers'in all iarts of the State have taken active measures to keep down the rabbit pest, and their action in this direction should conm mend itself to the whole farming and grazing community. Mr Allan says:-For eight months ending 28th February, 1915, about 45,000,000 of strychninedapple.and carrot baits have been used by this Department, and . about five 1timies that quantity of free-feed. Experience has proved that about seven poisoned baits to a rabbit is a fair thing. 't his would be about six and a half millions. There are the rabbits that are killed with the phosphorised bait, digging out, fumigating, etc., which would be some millions more. Say a total of eight or nine millions-equal, easily, to over a million sheep, or their equivaIent. But these figures ar...

The informant, Inspector Taylor, of the Agricultural Department, said that in a bag of chaff he saw there would be 34 feet of havband.

Digestibility of Silage. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail and Central Mallee Advertiser — 23 April 1915

Digestibility of '--ze. With regard to the question of the digestibility of silage .gainst that of the original crop from which it is produced, it is generally re cognised, according to a n:ote by Messrs Guthrie and Ramsay in the Government agricultural publica tion Yf Neew South Wales, that it is about the same as that of dry fodder (hay, bth s; lhge .-d ?-'iay being slightly less digestibe Jian the original green fodder. 'This low digestibility is not due to any actual decrease of digestible ma terial, but to the fact that there is always a considerable loss in the conversion of the green crop into hay or silage (apart from the ics of water,, and this loss chie fy con sists of sugar and similar soluble substances wvhich are whody Cdi gestible. A loss of as high as 20 per cent. of material is possible in the conversion of green crop into silage. and the material so lost is for the most part the digestible nortion of the fodder. On the whole there is less loss of material when the c...
