PATRIOTIC MOVEMENTS. THE DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 4 September 1914
PATRIOTIC MOVEMENTS. THE DEMONSTRATION. The committee is actively engaged preparing for the demonstration to be held in aid of the patriotic fand on Wednesday, September 16, and it is confidently anticipated that a very fair snm of money will be raised. There has been a deal of discussion regard ing the advisability of holding such a function, many being of the opinion that bhe present is not a time for holi-; day-making. Whilst realising to the I full the seriousness of the position in which our kinsfolk—and our comrades,! too -have been placed, we believe that underlying the appearance of jollity that for the nonce will be worn, there will be a deep appreciation of the paiD, , misery and distress that has been, and still will be, caused by the awful war. In any case, :t is a question whether it were not better to do something to alleviate that distress, even if buffoon ery is the aid chosen, than to sit down and nnavailingly lament onr mis fortune. Those who are responsible for th...

FOOTBALL. GOULBURN VALLEY COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 11 September 1914
FOOTBALL, GOULBURN VALLEY COM PETITION. Numnrkah mat Tallygaroopna on the local ground, and what might have proved a good game was spoiled by the wind blowing. Tallygaroopna first took advantage of the wind, bat a strong de fence by the locals prevented any ma terial scoring and at quarter-time the figures were almost even. Numurkah, like their opponents, were lacking in dash, and the game dragged to the final bell when the figures showed 4.S each. The surprise of the day was the de feat of Muckatah. The minor premiers journeyed to Wunghnu and there suffered their first defeat for the season by 5 points, the scores being-Wunghnu, 6.7; Muckatah, 5.8. Things were only middling at Gobravn where Kataniatite visited, and as a result of the intervals devoted to foot ball the figures showed—Oobram, 8 goals 5 behinds ; Katamatite, 2 goals 10 behinds.

AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS. Time is the best test of truth Here is a Sbepparton story that has stood the test of time. It is a story with a point that will come straight home to many of ns. Mrs James Ladgrove, High Street Shepparton says ;—" Fifteen years ago I stated that Doan's Backache Kidney Pills had cared me of kidney ailment, and gave yon permission to publish this statement for the benefit of other sufferers. I am pleased to say now that time has proved my core to be a permanent one, for I am still free of the ailment. I had been a martyr to backache, and always felt drowsy and heavy, and had attacks of vomiting, but Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills altered all that fifteen years ago, and I have been right ever since. I advise all sufferers to use this re medy ; a dose or two of the pills oc casionally keeps one in good health.'1 We feel the need of a good kidney remedy as we grow older, for the kid neys become weak with years of work. Then give your kidneys the help they need by taki...

However, no serious trouble occurred, and the vote tbat took place on the motion that the demonstration committee be asked to eliminate the booth was lost by a big majority, the numbers, roughly, being §0 to 140.

Picola Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 11 September 1914
Picola Water Supply. At Tuesday's meeting of the shire council, Messrs G. Stickels, P. Banko, J. Hawks and J. Grinter attended as a deputation and asked that the coun cil assist the township of Picola to gain a water supply. The oounoil had already assisted in putting down a bore, but beyond sinking the shaft nothing was done. The residents of Picola were in the main not in a posi tion to help themselves, and therefore they aBked that the oounoil erect a mill or a pump over the bore. (The deputation also handed in a largely signed requisition, in which it was suggested that the rate levied on the petitioners be put towards providing what was required instead of spending money on road works, which latter would not be required this year.) Or Campbell said the oounoil two years ago had given the Picola people every opportunity to help themselves, but they would not even teat the bore. Mr Stiokels said the bore was 200 feet deep and the water rose to within 60 feet. The men who sunk the...
