LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1914

LADIES' 'LETTER. I should love to have seen Lady Dud ley's face, when she got an answering cable from Air. Tony Hordern! Do you remember the fuss the Dudleys made when lie married Miss Bingham, and how Lady Dudley stood godmother to the first baby? Of course, she thought of him as soon as she started her Aus tralian Field Hospital. "I suppose she thought she could count on liim for £10 000—possibly £5000, at the worst £1000. I can imagine breezy Lady Honora exclaiming, "Great Scott! Wrong again, mother!" For Mr. lior dern, you know, turned the message over to the Patriotic Fund, and com mended it to their , attention. - J\Ir-1 Colin Stephen, to whom Lady Dudley also wired, sent £50. Lady Dudley, when she started the Bush Nursing Scheme out here, found it very hiTrd to get the thing moving. The real rea son never seemed to occur to the dear lady. People would not subscribe be cause the Dudleys did not head the list. "Why should they be generous with our money?" they wanted to know. O...

DISTRICT NEWS. (Prom Our Own Correspondents). Moondarra. We have just had a splendid soaking rain, which will do a great amount of good. Our largest sawmill in the district is stopped, owing to the falling off in demand since the war began, and Harris—or Erica as it is now called—is a quieter place. The company which is putting the tram into Baw Baw has sus pended operations till summer, owing to seasonable difficulties. A good number of palings are being split at present in this locali ty, for firms in Melbourne. A patriotic social was held in the local State School last week, when about £6 was taken. Half this money was sent to the Patriotic Fund, and half to the Belgium Re lief Fund. Mr W. H.

Allambee Reserve. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1914

Allambee Reserve. Although not directly interested in the production of wheat, the residents here express considerable dpubt as to the wisdom of fixing the price of this grain, the general opinion being that unless the Government is prepared to subsi dise the farmers during periods when the reverse of the present in other parts of the world, viz., par ticular peace and prosperity, re duces the price of wheat to below the paying level, it will simply mean that the average price will be reduced, which in turn will mean less production—to the permanent detriment of the whole .community. Rabbits are not nearly so nume rous as last year ; indeed, one trap per found it necessary to get into a trap himself—to increase the num-i ber of " catches." This, however, did hot improve matters as, though he is a strong man, he foupd ib quite impossible to extricate his hands, and had to pull up the trap and walk two miles for assist ance !

"Room yet," is the report of General Bridges to the Defence Minister after a hurried visit to northern capitals. Men are being rejected in scores, for Jlie work is to be serious, and the: Australian troops must be the best there. "Room for the best" might have been the general's report, if he had not been anxious not to discour age men of all kinds from volunteer ing. It has been noticed in each State that most of the accepted men are fro.m the cities, and Mr. Millen was not long in putting his finger on the cause—disinclination of country dwellers to pay their fares to the capi tals on the chance of passing the se vere medical tests. A scheme is now being prepared whereby these men shall be either recouped for such ex penditure, or examined" at recruiting centres within reasonable distance, of their homes.
