ITALY'S WAR LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 11 February 1916
ITALY'S WAR LEADER. .Just as General Joffre was practically un known outside of Prance before the begin ning of the war, so Italy's leader comes upon the European battlefield unheralded and un known to the American observer. In Italy, ,however, he was already famous. Count Luigi Cadorna has long been regarded there as the '^rniy,'s .one hope . and the one man who has !tlie;'abi]ity Vto revive its glory. An Italian writer, a friend of- the Count, characterises him, in an article Contributed to the Brooklyn Eagle," by the two words "vivacity" and "calm." These describe alike his career and his temperament. His quick mind has built up 'a storehouse of military knowledge; it has jucTged keenly both inferiors and superiors; it has' foreseen and planned long in advance, but always beneath a surface of calmness and without the friction of disordered haste- He maintains his balance in the most trying cir cumstances and refuses to yield to the blud geonings of hasty argument or prejudiced pe...

CORRESPONDENCE ■ i»i — » m nfri — (To the Editor.) Sir,—Your Correspondent signing himself "Bandar" to his letter ap pearing in your issue of tlie 4th inst. is apparently nnder the mistaken im pression that abuse is argument. He appears to be annoyed or upset be cause the Shire Council declined to ^waste public money by subscribing to the funds of a route march. ... He claims that route marches have lean conclusively proved to be well known efficacious aids to recruiting and in this entirely unwarranted as sumption he hurls a column of abuse at the Shire Council individually afhd collectively. Does your correspondent realise the urgent necessity that ex ists for every man who can do so to enlist and be traiued for the front at the earliest possible moment; does he, or is he capable of understanding, that men marching along a road (in most cases alongside a railway) are ■wasting valuable time and money— time that should be spent in learning how to do the job they have enlisted for, a...

A COWARDLY BLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 11 February 1916
A COWARDLY BLOW. Trooper D, J. Campbell, of Broken Hill, writing from Gallipoli, on December 8, says:—"I see by the papers they are going to strike for shorter hours in the Barrier mines, A strike now is a cowardly blow at ns who are in the trenches and de pendent on them supplying the metal for making, munitions. They are striking a harder blow than they im agine at the boys who are risking their lives for their country. Are they going to strike while their fel low workers are being slaughtered for the want of ammunition with which to defend their lives ? If so, I would like to take a hand in the destruction of the originators. Yen might let the Barrier miners see the opinion of every Broken Hill boy on this side. They are working under better conditions than we are fighting under. We do not get 44 hours a week."

—. (From Our Correspondent) We are still experiencing the Lot weather and its consequent ill effects. The district at present is badly in need of a good fa.ll of rain;.what little grass is left now is in a very dry state and is not of much use to big stock. Fortunately, the water sup ply is not too bad in the district. A number of pastoralists. are already cutting scrub for their big stock. Three or four inches of rain would, do the world of good,- anything short of the" amount would not be of much use to make the grass grow now. Our Theo. Meers gave us zither short notice of when he was going away to camp, for on Saturday nigj>t •at the Smoke Social he made it known that he was going into camp on Mon day.'
