CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] HIGH COST OP LIVING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 5 January 1916
. CORRESPONDENCE. ;[We do not necessarily identify our selves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] HIGH COST OP LIVING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I read the remarks of " Householder" in your columns .a few weeks ago, and being a householder like himself with plenty of hungry mouths to fill, I feel sorry for him at being un .able to make both ends meet. " Householder " abused all the business people of the town, but what are hia remedies. Why does he not suggest a co-opera tive store, baker's shop, but chery, ironmonger, timber yard, boot shop, saddler, and fruit shop, and also to supply the needs of your other correspondent, a pub. Perhaps he would then get what he suggests he does not now, fair play. His remarks makes me think he is not auch a hard working man aa me, but rather one with a soft, cozy billet and salary. I would suggest to '' Householder " to live within his means, and not to attend every dog fight held in the town, and indulge in other luxuries which many of...

RED CROSS GYMKHAN V. A GREAT SUCCESS. ABOU1' £80 PROFIT. The Gymkhana, held at " Yar rima" homestead on Boxing Day in aid of the Creasy Red Cross Society, was, as anticipated, an unqualified success, and attracted the whole of the local people, the surrounding districts being also well represented. The commit tee only had three weeks at their disposal to organise the affair, and they launched one of the most interesting afternoon's en tertainment ever held in Cressy. At the outset all entered into the proposal to hold a cai-nival most enthusiastically, and the work allotted each was faithfully per formed. The day was an ideal one lor holding an outdoor gath ering, and it is computed that over 500 people were present. A sports programme of some 20 items was got through during the afternoon. The procession, over a mile long, left the post office at 11 a.m., and it was wit nessed by an interested crowd of people. It was marshalled by Mr J. Macdonald, followed by a number of vehicles an...
Che Pioneer. CRESSY, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 5. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 5 January 1916
CHESS*. WEDNESDAY, .IAN. 5. Reaidents of the district have been continually calling in at the office enquiring why the state ment of receipts and expenditure of the Creasy Red Cross Society, as asked for at a public meeting some weeks ago, has not been published. We understand that the secretary of tha society pro mised the Gymkhana committee that their request would be car ried out. So far, however, it has not been handed to us for publi cation, and in the interest of our readerB and the public generally we ask why it has not been atten ded to. Our only reason for drawing attention to this is that it is a matter of general interest, and the public who subscribe to these funds are entitled to know what is done with the money. Mr J. Spalding, who so sud denly met hi3 death by accident last week, was one of the mem bers of the Creasy Presbyterian Church Board of Management. At the funeral of the deceased gentleman on Sunday afternoon the members of the church board of management were ...
THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 5 January 1916
THE DANCE Followed the concert and was attended Dy about 30 couplea, an enjoyable time being spent. The floor was specially prepared. Ex cellent music was supplied by Miss K. Poynton (piano) and Messrs O'Loughlin, sr. and jr., violins. Mr J. Mowat made a capital master ot ceremonies. A very tasty aDd enjoyable supper was served. The weather has been all that could be desired by farmers, both for carting and stacking hay and for the wheat crops. Oaten hay is now mostly in the stacks, and that left to be stripped is yield ing well. The cool summer has greatly benefited the wheat, and crops that looked pinched have filled out. In everv part of the district there is not a single poor crop. The general average for the Western Plains is fairly cer tain to go well above the Govern ment statist's estimate of 15.85 bushels. Stationmasters at country rail way stations have been reques ted to inform local newspaper proprietors of the fact that the code whistle of one short, one long, one short...

THUNDER TIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 12 January 1916
THUNDER TIPS. Lightning is accumulated electricity1 discharged from the clouds. Thunder i:i the. noiso made by the concussion of the air when it closes, or •' bangs to," after it has been parted by the light ning Hash. A certain part of the noise is due to chemical air changes produced by the ideetrie fluid. When thunder seems like one vast crash, it is because the lightning cloud is near the earth, and the sound vibrations reach the ear at the same moment, and so seem like one sound. An irregular, broken roar of " hea ven's artillery " means that the light ning cloud is distant, and the thunder noise vibrations, having further to tra vel, reach the ear at different times. .Sound takes a second to travel .'iSO yards. When thunder " growls," the storm is 'further distant still. What is called rolling thunder is due to the echoes of the peal reverberating among masses of clouds and terrestrial objects. Xot all know that the reason why summer lightning is so Often without thunder is th...
