BACCHUS MARSH:: CUP. Enlisted and Conscript mleet again. (With apologies, to the wrath of all poets).

No holidays for us, it seems tie game's completely up, For we're trained and nominated for the Bacchus Marsh Cup.

TOOLERN VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 December 1915
TOOLERN VALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The local Red Cross has sclitl away, since my last note, two cases of eggs to the Base Hospital. IL is proposed shortly to organise a shooting party for all afternoonl among the rabbits, which are very plentiful just now. Those not too badly "shot about" would be very. acceptable to the wounded or sick men, and the sportsmen would feel that they were achieving a double purpose, to say nothing of the de struction of the pest. The Hon. Treasurer of the Red Cross (Mrs. Barrie) ackinowledges, with thanks, a donation of 8/9 from M.r. P. Glenane; 2/ monthly sub scription from Mrs. I. Barnes; also sale of some Red Cross books. At the recent examination, two pupils out of three (Sarah Scarff and Dorrie Robinson) got their Merit Certificates, while the pupil for Qualifying" Certificate obtained passes in all subjects but one.
TRAINING NOTES, BACCHUS MARSH CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 December 1915
TRAINING NOTES,.: BACCIIUS S"MARSH CUP. (By? Aeroplane). Great interest'continues .in this event, and new horses are .ii. train ing every morning, the lfostnotice able being J.- W. Tolinie's Pannicky Pessimist, by Germanation from D'nation. This horse-giv es a lot of bother on the tha/ck, and kicks up a lot of dust with its .esratie run ning. A change of feed.is recom mended, and would suggest a -trial of green apples, with a little strych nine. This would probably, have the effect of •quietening the horse down a bit. The Parwan boys are beti ing on Jim Whelan's Parwan Belle (Lady Driver-Haydigger), and this horse will take a lot of beating-to make him win. 'Wim. Grant's Willie, out of Office by Three a.m., puts on a lot of work, atnd if he does not knock up before the day will be worth watching. E. L. Simpson's Motor Cab, by Rattles, from Scrap Heap, takes a long time to get .off the mark, and several times has broken down on the track, but the ownei' perseveres with him, and puts ...

A GERMAN VIEW OF THE SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 December 1915
A GERMAN VIEW OF THE SIT UATION. "No State coveted our land, or menaced German integrity; our ships were welcomed in every ocean; and our citizens enjoyed tile fullest civil rightrs throughout the world. The flag was respected everywhere. To day it is the badge of infamy. To their last hours the Kaiser, Von Tir pitz, and Von Bethman Hollweg, will _carry the brand of shame for the unparalleled ruin they have wrought, and the misery into which they have plunged the world by laud and sea."-The German Hu inanity League, Amsterdam. Foul, blood-stained tread every land, To you and yours was free, All met you with thle open hand, And gentle courtesy. Where, too, the British ensign waved, Your men of trade 'might stray, And unconstrained, as time and tide, Their wealth of wares display. Your kith and kin to land and mine, Were welcome as t;he day, Each tilled his cornfield, dressed the vine, And who dared speak him nay? Your dwelling place you chose--your fanes, YouiF own God's altar reared...
BACCHUS MARSH. No. 59. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 December 1915
I3ACCHUS MARSH.: i :? ' By W. WILLIAMS, B.A. No. 59. Wre start on J875. In 1874-5 the district folk had only one subject of conversation, and that was--thistles! tlhistles! thtistles! Tile Council had decreed that the pest should be cx terminiated. Tie Shire Council of 1915 evidently is not. so zealous over the eradication of the boxthorn. An inspector was appointed, a Mr. Tom Kis.ock, to whom reference has been made more thlin once. Apparently, Mr. Kissock gave'no quarter. Any landowner that had thistles on his possessioll hal to face the Police Magistrate. and Mr. Tomn Kissock was no respecter of persons. One of the first to receive a summons was a Councillor. Bitter letters ap peared in the "Express." At social functions any allusion to the thistle crusade was properly topical, but nMrh. Kissock was far more abused than praised. In "Express", Jan. 9, 1875, appeared sonme sat~irical verses. A Mr. Tanner, I understand, owned a mu, Wi-frequented pub., and, reading between tihe lines...
