Horrors of War. Cracking of Bones. GALLOPING OVER DYING. MAKES ONE SHUDDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 10 November 1914
Horrors of War. Cracking of Bones. GALLOPING OVER DYING. MAKES ONE SHUDDER. A glimpse of some of the worst horrors of the war in France, iu which an avalanche of artillery and cavalry ride over fields thickly strewn with dead, has been given by a wounded French gunner to a comrade in hospital. His story is related in an English paper just ar rived. ' " Never, never,' shall I forget that most terrible scene when we rushed our horses and heavy guns across a field covered all over with the bodies of dead and dying soldiers. " We do uot really see . the dam age done by our shell which ex plodes among the enemy. We , do not see how the bodies are cut and torn to pieces, but as we swept across the field like a devastating Storm we heard the cracking of bones under our gun wheels, and the guns tottered as if they were running through a ploughed field. They heeled over when they passed over two human bodies simultane ously, and every now and again the horses staggered and stumbled and slipp...

State Elections. Mr. JS. Brown addressed a meet-, ins at a social held in the Winton' Mall oa Wednesday, about 40 being present. In the course of his speech Mr. Brown said that the Liberal and Labor party were united when it came to questiou relating to the war. He then re ferred to the cruel drought, andsa:i\ that if returned vvduld"carry ouTT9^Kv"cqJist^uofr schemes such, as the JSlllaticoolk weir. He said, that it was very evident tbat out of millions of money that had been spsit in Victoria, none of it had been spent in Beualla and Yarrawonga electorate. He would, if returned, endeavor to have that st-ite of affairs altered. Water was a benefit to a district industrially, and was a great stand by in a time like the present. He knew one man in an irrigation dis trict who got ,£200 for 20 acres of lucerne. He then referred to the huge failure the Liberal Govern ments had made of the closer settlements. Land that was worth £3 per acre was sold to innocent and trusting people for £8...
Strawberry Fete. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 10 November 1914
Strawberry Fete. This annual event held by the member* and adherents of St. An drew's Church appears to grow in favor jesr by year. Quietly, un ostentatiously. but none the less surely preparations have been made by the ladies to make 1914 THK effort of efforts. The ladies never disappoint. They play the game. We have not the slightest doubt about what kind of response will come from the public. The support accorded has been of tlie most generouB description in the past, increasing to such an extent, in fact, that the more spacious ac commodation of the Shire Hall has been requisitioned to meet the ex tra demands. Comfort and enjoy ment are thus guaranteed. Artis tically arranged, well-stocked stalls will provide the magnet that possesses the peculiar property of attracting to itself copper, silver and gold, and even paper. A due allowance being made for the stressful period through which we are passing, we look forward with confidence to the result. The Presi dent of the Shire will...
The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 10 November 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Han with soul no dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, ; No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here 1ft him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedips, go plant' him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor inay dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the w.orld may know Its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moBs; And on a Btone above, "Here lies ' A chump who wouldn't advertise,"

MYRRHEE. A fire started on Mr. Wui.. Mor gan's property a few days ago, aad aided by a strong north wind spread into the property of Mr. C. Schulz. There was a considerable quantity of grass destroyed, and the firs burned fiercely. The neighbors were quickly in atteudance ; but it was some time before they got the fire under control. Mr. Jas. Daly specially deserves the thauks of the whole community, for it was prin cipally through his exertions, he being first on the scene, that the fire was confined to such a small area, A very severe dust storm swept over the district on Saturday, and the grass and crops suffered severely. A fine steady rain fell through the night and 22 points were regis tered. Hay cutting has started and in some cases the crops will be equal to other years. Mr, Stevenson has a very good crop of oats, being about five feet high and well filled. ,

'AllHell Let Loose.' A DEAD GERMAN'S CHARGE. WritiDg home to one of his friends, Trooper S. Cargill says': " The Germans let all hell loose on us in their mad attempt to crush us and so win Iheir way to Paris. They did not succeed, and they won't succeed. I saw one ghastly affair. A Gtrmaii cavalry division was pursuing our retiring infantry when we were let loose on them. When they saw us coming they turned and fled—at least, all but one, who came rushing nt .us with his lance at the charge. I caught hold of his horse, which was half mad with terror, and my chum was just going to run him through when he noticed the awful glaze in his eyes and we saw that the poor devil was dead."
