Minature Rifle Range. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915

Minature Rifle Range. Consideration is still being given ' to ttic question of establishing a I minaturc rillc range in the State school grounds. As the requisite number of members for the complete erection and equipment of the range by the Defence Department was not forthcoming those interested in the work and anxious for its con struction found themselves in a quandry. I lowevcr, further repre sentations have been made to the Defencc Department by the school committee with the result that it will agree to furnish rifles and ammunition, so the committee is faced with the problem of finding the range. Ways and means are at present receiving attention and it is confidently anticipated that this serviceable equipment will be se cured, and thus the much desired training of our future manhood to t''e standard of efficient marksmen wiH be carried out.

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard " High Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915

Points in Passing.. (Written Specially for the " Northern District Standard " High Commissioner. The retirement of Sir George Iteid as High Commissioner for the Australian Commonwealth will be viewed by many with genuine regret. Many were hope ful that his appointment would be continued for a further term, or at least till the end of the present war ; but it is hardly likely that such an extension will be allowed. Sir George has filled his high office in London with conspicuous ability, and he has more than justified the confidence reposed in him at his election when there was absolute unanimity in both houses. Sir George is a gentleman ot many parts. In his profession he is "in the first row." As a speaker he is captivating and perspicuous. In fairness, good taste, and geniune humor it will be difficult to find his equal, liesides he has given Englishmen a new vision of Australia, by lifting her from her semi obscurity, itnd placing her in the van ! guard of British over-seas domin...

KORONG VALE NEWS Football. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915

KORONO VALE NEWS Football. 1 lie football match played be tween Wcddcrburn am] Nine Mile on Saturday, in aid of the Australian Wounded, did not fail to arouse a good deal of enthusiasm amongst the supporters of both sides. As is almost invariably the case with neighboring towns, a good deal of friendly rivalry existed, and in this instance it had became more pro nounced through the agency of partisans who had expressed their opinions freely as to the merits of their respective side*. A contest for a side wager between two well known "old-timers " ol'Wedderburti (who had questioned each others capabilities) gave additional interest to the afternoon's amusement. The Weddcrburn team was minus the servicc of Walter Lemon and several other prominent players, while the visitors claimcd to be similarly handicapped. The play was even throughout, and owing to the congested nature of the game hard knocks were frequent, but not necessarily spiteful. Weddcrburn ob tained a few points lead in th...

MEN OF MARK. ACHILLES GRAY, M.LA. Our attention this week is directed towards the above cclcbrity who was born in Wedderburn in i86.(, and where lie lias lived ever since. Me was noted in his young days as a good horseman and provided many hours ot' amusement for his young friends by giving exhibitions with trick horses and ponies of his own training. Whilst his occupation was that of a farmer he took an mtcrest ;:i the ailments of stock and alter lianl study eventually qualified himself as a veterinary surgeon, in which capacity he was noted for many successful operations. He was a strong advocate for the use of anesthetics in operations for farm stock and as far back In 1893, publicly chloroformed and marked 300 lambs. Of course there was no necessity for him to follow the pro fession but his love for same was such that he was not infrequently found neglecting his other business to assist those in trouble with stock. I Ie kept himself supplied with modern works, and was always up-...

A Short Story. "Taken In." (By W.J.W.) Sam Vcrncy was a shearer. Me was a quiet chap, and generally re garded as being rather soft. Nevertheless he was voted a real good fellow, and was very popular with all who knew him. Sam had a horse. His name was Warrior. Warrior'was a character in his way. I le had a deeply medi tative look about him, and gave the impression that any kind of rapid movement was quite out of his power Sam thought a lot of Warrior. He had picked him up on one of his visits to N.S.W. during a drought period. His mates used to banter Sam on his mount, but he acceptcd their chaff with a good natured smile. He averred that Warrior could gallop, but as lie had never been known to do anything of the sort this assertion was received with a grin of unbelief. When Warrior was in action with Sam on his back there certain!}' seemed to be consi derable reason for doubt as to his ability to gallop. When galloping lie lifted his fore legs high, and then did the same with his h...

Remedies for Horse Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915

Remedies for Horse Sick ness. As this is the most dangerous time of year to horse life, I would advise horse owners to have on hand a drenching bit for the purpose of giving the animal its medicine. As farmers are aware there is a lot of sickness with horses at the present time, and the most dreadful disease is colic. There may be two kinds of colic—spasmodic or flatulent. The first is the result of cramps, or spasmodic contractions, causing severe pains, with tendency to inflammation. The other of dis tension of the bowels with ten dency to inflammation and rupture of the coats. How to know spasmodic colic. There will be spasms of pain, with pawing, striking of the belly with the hind foot, looking round at the flanks, lying down and suddenly rising; the horse will shake himself as tlie pain intermits. Again the pain returns and the same per formances are gone through. There may be frequent small discharges from the bowels and bladder, and during the attacks the pulse and breathing...
