Council Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 November 1914

Council Notes. Cr. Gardner, as a member of the deputation that waited on the Min ister or I'ublic Works in an appeal from the council in connection with the Tui'ton-Scantou road as a ma'n road, said lie was not surprised at the verdict given, for he fully ex pected it. If was reso'lved ■ at the council table to know exactly how council fared in the matter of an appeal, and now lie felt sat'siied that an appeal was an absolue farce, and that it was useless for tliern to ap peal on any works while the Main Koads Board were definite- on the course they intend to adopt. The petitions as pTaced before the Min ister wore in no way contradicted either by the Board or the Minister. The preposition, as far as the centre l-Mlng was concerned, was not a very good one as it would cost £S00 per annum to maintain this road and that would leave them only £200 to spend over the remainder of the rid ing. None of these points were placed before the Board or the Min ister. It was contended that the co...

THE DAY. 13y HENRY CHAPI'KLL. (The author of this magnificent.poem, says the "Daily Express," is Mr Henry Chappel, a railway porter at Bath. Mr. Cliappel is known' to his comrades as the "Bath Railway Poet." A poem such as this lifts him to the rank of a national poet.) You boasted the Day, and you toasted the Day, And now the Day has come. Blasphemer, braggarts, and coward all. Little you reck of the numbing ball, The blasting shell, or the "white arm's" fall. As they speed poor humans hdme. You spied for the Day, you lied for the Day, And woke the Day's red spleen. Monster, who asked God's aid. Divine, Then strewed His seas with the ghastly mine; ^■Not all the waters of the Rhine Can wash thy foul hands clean. You dreamed for the Day, you schemed for the Day. Watch how the Day will go. Slayer of age and youth and prime (Defenceless slain for never a crime) Thou art steeped in blood as a hog in slime, False friend and cowardly foe. You have sown for the Day, you have grown for the ...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 November 1914

The deceased gentleman died suddenly on Saturday afternoon about half-past three after a short illness which took a more serious form on "Wednesday of last week. He was. only 42 years of age and had resided at Fish Creek for almost 10 years, but during the last G years his health had been very indifferent (the illness, supposed to have been origiually in duced by a severe strain), and he suf fered from a complicated, dropsical complaint. The late Mr. Unger was a man whom everyone spoke—and speaks—highly of; his popularity was. great. The remains were interred in the Leongatha cemetery on Monday last.

Bennison State School, j OPENING OF SWIMMING BATH. Although for some time past the object of having swimming pools in connection with district State schools has been under consideration, noth ing of an advanced nature took place, until last Thursday, when, at the invitation of the Beiuiison school committee, a iargo number of peo ple form Foster, Toora and other • neighboring places journeyed to Ben- ' nison to participate in the celeb ra- , tions attached to the opening of their ( baths. Being established in close proximity to a running strea.n of { water, the Bennison school is favor- i ed with better facilities than many other schools in the way of erecting baths, and they evidently have not j overlooked the fact, for the both about to be rellects great credit upiv those who constructed it, as prior commencing operations the water was only running ankle deep, and now a fine bath with a depth of from 3 to 5 feet, 60 feet long and 15 feet wide takes its place.

The Thistles Act. DEPUTATION TO THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 November 1914

The Thistles Act. DEPUTATION TO THE COUNCIL. As a diversity of opinion exists regarding the constant cutting of the shore thistle as a means of eradication, the matter was venti lated at the monthly meeting of the Woorayl Shire Council on Friday last. The deputation was from Mount Eccles, and included Messrs W. and R. Risely, B. S. Anderson, C. Harrison, P. Heintz, R. E- Rutherford, W. G. Brown, S. Chrisholm, J. Denham, C. Marks and A. Griggs. In in troducing the settlers, Cr Hall re marked that if the shore thistle were let alone it would eradicate itself, so a request was to be made by the deputation that it be not made compulsory to cut the thistle, which would give more time to the poisoning of rabbits. Mr W. Riseley said that he had had a lot of experience with shore thistles. During the past four years he had cut shore thistles on his property, and when they got the better of him with the hoe he took to the slasher. Where they were left to seed there was a smaller crop the fol...
