THE PROPOSED PATRIOTIC DEMONSTRATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 4 September 1914
THE PROPOSED PATRIOTIC DEMONSTRATION. TO THE EDITOR, Sib—In a mixed community mixed opinions on every conceivable sub ject may be expected. I gather that in regard to the proposed patriotic demonstration and sports gathering opinions are very seriously divided. (1) There is very strong exception taken, for example, to the proposal to have a publican's booth on the ground, (2) There is also a very strong feoling against the whole plan or schemes of the proposed demon stration. The combination of the sentiments of whioh these two objections spring may be regarded as sufficiently powerful to seriously mili tate against the success of the effort if it is attempted on the liues laid j down at the meeting held on August 24tb, (a) Temperance people can not oountenanoe the liquor booth. They are persuaded that any money raised by that means is bongbb at too dear a price. Liquor consumed on the ground during the afternoon, they feel, would be a priming for heavier drinking in bhe hotels in t...

MR. MALCOLM McCLURE. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 4 September 1914
Mr. MALCOLM MoCLURE. Mr. Malcolm M'Clnre, one of the very earliest settlers in this district, died on Monday evening, after a lengthy illness. Mr. M'Clnre some 12 months ago contracted a heavy oold, but, never having suffered illness, he treated it lightly, and it was not nntil a short time ago that he sought medi cal advice. By that lime his condition was such that but little hope was held out for his ultimate recovery, and he gradually sank and died. He was a bachelor, and for many years had lived with his brother at Katunga. He took no part in public matters, but was well liked by his numerous friends. The funeral took place in the Numur kab Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, when the Kev. J. A. Lee read the burial service and Mr. A. Dunn had charge of the arrangements. The cortege was a lengthy one.

How ever, alarming symptoms presented themselves later, and he died as stated.

MISSIONARY EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 4 September 1914
MISSIONARY EXHIBITION. A most successful Missionary Exhibi tion was held at Wangaratta during Synod week, and in a recent issue of this column I promised to give a short account of it. Weil first of all there was no de sire to make money by the venture, and indeed very little hope of so doing owing to the expense which was inevitable. The one object was to stimulate missionary interest by means of bringing various workers in foreign lands to speak for themselves and to bring various exhibits with them to be shown in attractive set ting appropriate to such field described. To Canon Cue we owe a debt of gratitude for enthusing so many workers to render such an unselfish undertaking possible. The large floor space of Her Majesty's Theatre was fully occupied with the various stalls and passages through which a large number of the public para ded seeing the sights, listening to the lecturers or purchasing missionary litera ture. The proceedings were opened by the singing of the National ...

THE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 4 September 1914
THE LADIES, The ladies are sill energetically making garments for the comfoit of the soldiers, and already a fine parcel ot clothing has been sent to Melbourne. The sewing meetings have been well attended, and the "Government stroke" finds no place at these. A decision has been made that a fond shonld be ; opened for the relief of those distressed dependents of Belgian soldiers who have so nobly played the part allotted them in the straggle. This fand will, we no doubt, be liberally sup ported, for if ever a people deserved recognition and help the gallant Belgians do.
