THE PATRIOTIC DEMONSTRATION A HUGE SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 18 September 1914
the patriotic demonstration A HUGE SUCCESS. The much-talked of patriotic de monstration duly eventuated on Wed nesday last, and right successful it proved. From early morning people from the outlying districts began to assemble in little knots in the main street, and when the time arrived for the procession to move off there was a very large crowd. Some little delay occurred in getting the procession started, but when it did move off no time was lost in getting to the show grounds, where the sports programme was carried through. At the head of the lengthy proces si/^irode Mr A. 0. King (the secretary to tbe movement), disguised as the ging. Charlie looked well, but we feel sure tbafc an anarchist looking for an opportunity to throw a bomb at onr sovereign would have passed Charlie j,„ By his side rode Mr J. H. Dolphin, whose " get-up " as John gall was excell- nt. He was a typical Englishman. Messrs King and Dol phin were followed by the local troop A.Ij.H- nn(ler Sergeant T. Leavey...
"BONNIE SCOTLAND." EDINBURGH. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 18 September 1914
"BONNIE SCOTLAND," EDINBURGH. Magnificent, imposing, is this Qneen Oity of Scotland. If ib only had the climate of Melbonrne it coald not be beaten in the grandeur of its surround ings. But first I must tell you of the "Trossaehs." Leaving Glasgow very early one morning, 1 trained to Bal loch Pier, where a pretty steamer awaited us for the Lochs. Loch Lomond is a dream of beauty, a large expanse of water, the banks beautifully wooded, calling to mind that lovely old song "The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond." The day was ideal, bright sun just a nip in the air that spoke of the near highlands. Many beautiful homes we passed, away on the hills. We Australians have no idea of the varied coloring of the trees in this country, every shade of green, copper beeches, horse chestnuts in full bloom, pink and white, these are all huge trees, then the Scotch firs, the whole being a wonderful blending of shade and color this glorious spring time, You can imagine sailing be tween these hills,...

HIGH COURT DECISION, The stolen feast of wheat by a team of horses on the Swan Hill road last February ended disastrously to the horses at the time, and has since in volved the owners of the horses and of the wheat in litigation, which after passing through the County Court and the State Supreme Court, reached the High Court, when the owner of the horses sought leave to appeal against the decision of the State Supreme Court.

OBITUARY. MR MATTHEW WHITE, SEN. One of the earliest settlers in the distriob, in the person of Mr Mat thew White, passed away at his resi dence, Invergordon, on Tuesday morning, the c^use of death being pneumonia. The late Mr White, who was a native of Cornwall, ar rived in Victoria about 47 years ago, and after following mining for a few years came to Invergordon about 36 years ago and selected the land upon which he has resided ever since. He was 71 years of age at the time of his death, and was amongst the most highly respected men in the district. Though he took little active interest in any public movement, apart from ohuroh matters, there was nothing inaugurated for the welfare of the district that did not find him a ready supporter and ready helper, though he always preferred to render help in a quiet, unobtrusive fashion. Mr White had always enjoyed fair health up to within a week of his demise, when he was forced to take to his bed. He retained possession of all his facult...
