Been There. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

Been There. Private C. C. Ritchie, son of the editor of the MAIL, writes from various points: I am still doing well. I thought I would have been back at. the front before, but no. Am off to England for three months or so, to see how I get on there. It is only my arm-I got a shrapnel bullet right through my left arm and it shattered the bone a bit. It only needs time, the doctors say, to get right again. I have been here (Malta) two months now. so will have had a good spell by the time I get back again from the Old Dart. . . There is an interval of a day and a half here, for I had to pack up suddenly to catch the boat. I saw in the Malta paper where the first Australian V.C. got his name up, and it is only right, for anyone who gets it wants to do something out of the ordinary. I will soon be able to put traveller and adventurer to my name if I get any more trips. Starting from Melbourne and seeing Colombo for a day; from there right on to Suez without a stop. Got in a train for Cair...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

Local and General. -Next -Wednesday week, 20th. inst., Pinnaroo show takes place, and as a special train leaves Ouyen that morning at 7 o'clock, there is a fine chance to visit the next door town. The train returns the same evening, so you will need no worrp about sleeping under a wire fence for the night. After a spell of over four- years at Murrayville, Constable Wall left on Friday last for Inglewood. The officer proved himself capable and courteous, and le left for his new location with the best wishes of the whole of the townspeople. His successor at the western-end town is Constable Crawford. One of the finest aids to our sol diers at the -front or in camp is that given by the Young Men's Chris tian Association. That body has just issued its annual report, and it mnakes fine reading. If you are de sirous of having a copy, drop a line to the secretary, 130 IFlinders-st-, Melbourne, and it will be sent you Any stray coins you may have about you would be welcomed by the Associati...

An ex pression of the views of the coun cil was asked, and promptly and emphatically given Cr.

The big Boulka tank cost ,2500, -and the whole of the ratepayers had to pay interest on that.

A Way Out. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

A Way Out. [By nlex.] There are many ways in which the Iarmnning community can benefit itself. It was suggested once that by refusing to put in any crops,the farmers could defeat the machina tions of the Labor Party. That was before the facts became even remotely kuown. 'Education is do ing a lot in the way of benefiting the farmers, and as educational methods spread, the benefits will become more evident. Thoughts suggested by a paragraph in last week's MAIL were many, but the most prominent of all was the re missness of the farming community to act in unison for the mutual welfare. This was understandable when the people were still in the throes of old-world notions But we are progressing every day, and the newer generations are thinking more for themselves. The time is rapidly passing when what the man who "sows not. neither does he reap" is accepted as an authority on the business of the farmer. The city business man may know a grain of wheat when he sees it, but if the average ...

Walpeup Shire Council. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

Walpenp Shire @ouncil. At the ordinary meeting of the above council held at Murrayville on Thursday last, there were vre sent Crs. Glen (president), Farrell Hecht, Wiltshire and Mossop. CORRESPONDENCE. A bad piece of road south of blocks 12 and 13, Bocrongie, has formed a swamp on the north side of Wild Dog reserve, and Mr. W'. Nattrass says this could be obviated by cutting two short channels to t'he Wiid Iog Dam-Secretary to attend. The State War Council invited cooperation of municipal councils in the matter of emp!oyment of ,eturned soldiers, preference in that direction being urged.-The council had already decided on pre ference, and the matter of organi zation in arranging for employment was referred to the recruiting com mittees throughout the shire. G. A. Gill and eight other rate payers at Boulka requested that hills be cut down on the road be tween Gills and Penny's.-The work will be done so soon as the engineer can arrange.

Carwarp Carols. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

ear~war" earols. At the last meeting of our Pro? gress Association, the president occupied the chair in a good atten dance. The laHice Relief Board acknowledged the letter of thanksh for assistance rendered during the recent strenuous times, and we are hoping those times are absolutely past. Galah Progress Association sought co-operation in endeavoring to have the Maliee Lands Act amended to allow one man to hold two blocks, either by ballot or pur chase, instead of one of first class land, as at present. Members were agreed tha' 1280 acres is not too much for one man, so here's to do our bit towards having the Act amended. An estimate for a new hall was received from S. Risbey and Co. Ltd., of Mildura. In the matter of general business, the president was authorised to wait on Mildura shire council and urge that a weighbridge be erected at Carwarp. The same body will be urged to improve the road near Tipperary Hill, and the way to Tipperary will not then seem so long. Some forfeited...

Harvest Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

Harvest Prospects. It is a big thing to say, but. ev erything at present points to the forthcoming harvest providing a record, for the Maljee at least, if not for Aus'ralia. So far as this district is concerned it is a plea sure to travel through it. All along the Murrayvilie line one. could not wish to see anythingbet ter. Each and every one of the crops is quite equal to the other, and then we are calmly told that those are a long way from being the best. We are quite content with what is to be smen from the train, and can only add congratu lations to those who have better. Between Tutye and Boinka is a crop cut for hay, and while not offering to guess at the average cut, reckon the owner will havre feed tc spare. Near Underbool there is a crop now in the stook, ready for the chaffcutter, .while a magnificent second growth has sprung up. This surely takes the whole shop 6f pastry. Most of the crops are well out in ear, high and standing on good straw and widely stooled. The grain ...

Linga Links. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

Linga Links, The district football association kept its matches going right to a finish, and Linga came out on top. Now as some may resent this ac- tion, it will be just as well to put things right. By collections at matches £23 12/ was raised in aid of the Wounded Soldiers' Fund. That was good, but the premiers proved their unselfishness by dona- ting the prize money, amounting to £14 to the same fund. Thus the total from this corner of the Mallee from footballers and follow- ers of the game came to £37 12/, and we want to know of any quar- ter that did better.

Walpeup Warbles. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 October 1915

Walpenp Warbles. On Wednesday afternoon last the local tennis club held an open ing function on their court which was largely attended, and proved a very pleasant afternoon's amuse ment, and if the attendance may be taken as a criterion of future tennis afternoons, then there is a good time in store for us. The ladies kindly provided refresh ments, and this was much appreci ated. On Saturday evening residents gathered at the hall to bid farewell to Mr. Brocklebank, who has held the position of head teacher at the local State school for the past 18 months, and has now departed for the front via camp. The gather ing, which filled the hall to over flowing, was a fair indication of the esteem in which the guest of the evening was held. Dancing, skating, songs, etc., were the order of the evening, and during a short interval in the programme Mr. Richardson, in a short, but highly complimentary speech, presented Mr. Brocklebank, on behalf of his many friends, with a dressing case a safety...

Water. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 13 October 1915

Water. Tomorrow night the towns people are invited to attend at the Ouyen Public Hall. And there is every reason why they should. Following on a gathering of the townspeople last Saturday week, a requisition signed by twentyeight of those likely to be affected by the proposed reticulation scheme, was sent to the President of the shire asking that the meeting be con vened. Courteously the request was acceded to, and now the people have an opportunity of de- I ciding whether they will accept the scheme-not as originally laid down, be it remembered, but re duced-by the Water Supply Com mission. When laid before the public originally the country was I in the throes of a drought such as is hoped will never be seen again. Naturally, any promise of relief would be accepted, and after con > sideration, it was decided the 'scheme woul- do-for the present. SThe public affected having said it was satisfied, there would appear to be no further argument. But the scheme now being put into oper...

I hope from the bottom of my heart yot: are having the best year vet experienced up in that country. I am still in Alexandria and have no definite news about shifting. Our original battalion has been badly sliced up, and have now their 7th reinforcements and are terribly under strength. It is an awful sight to see a hospital ship come in from Gallinoli. I saw one last week and saw the most gruesome sights I ever saw. All the hospi tals here are full to overflowing, but it is a bad country for woirnds to heal as it is so warm and very little is needed to make wounds go septic.

An Important Matter. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 13 October 1915

An Important Matter. Probably not three per cent. of the farmers, in this portion of the Mallee at least, are in the happy position of being under no obliga tion to the Government in the mat ter of advances. This gives the ru ling powers first call on the crop, although, as is generally known, that zall has been waived in favor of the seller of the sacks. This lat Ster is no small item, amounting as it does to over threepence a bushel, but the Government lien is the one which may make or mar the mar ket, just as the heads may decide. After the bags are paid for the lien takes precedence, and then the quantity of wheat which must then get on the market to meet this de mand will require judicious hand ling to prevent demoralization. Ouyen branch of the P.L.C. had the matter under consideration on Monday night. Mr.M'Innes intro duced the subject, and pointed out that the Government. by going on the market as a seller would tend to depress prices to an appreciable extent. Farmers had ot...
