The change in the weather a low days ago did not end in a general downpour ;u was ex pected, but still, most of the pooplj have been fortunate enough to catch enough drinking water to last for soni3 time, and with a great nnny this means quite a luxury, as quite a number have been using water from the clams, for drinking purposes for some considerable time. Farm-?rs who ware fortunate enough to have . crop worth sav ing are busy getting the little they have gathered, and in the course of a few days the harvest will once again be ended. "Quite, a number of farmers will have enough for seed. Considering the amount of rain fallen in this district for the growing season, it is wonderful how crops have held out at all. In some cases they have attained an average height and the sample would compare very well with that pro duced in years when there has been a far greater rainfa...

A Brave Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 2 December 1914

A Bravo Soldier. The day of the individual in warfare has not gone by. ■ Mod ern conditions have eliminated much that formerly was impor tant, but the personal element will always he a factor of great moment. In it is included morale — that is, zeal and high spirit, based upon intelligence and pa triotism, collectively displayed. The war has already supplied stories of heroic deeds by indivi duals, and one of the most thril-' ling of these is the narrative of how Lieutenant Dimmer won the Victoria Cross. lie had received five wounds, and was the sole survivor of a detachment that was boating oil' the Prussian Guards. Suffering from loss of blood, he contrived, by sipping brandy (presumably supplied by a " wet" canteen), to keep him self from fainting and to serve his gun until the Prussians re treated. Apparently the very last round decided the encmy that further advance was impos sible. The position was critical, and Lieutenant Dimmer's service was valuable. The hour found the man....

OUR MOTTO: " Truth is great, and will prevail WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1914. Our Railway .••System. The new summer tnne-table has been issued, and it is any thing but ffrni i fvi n p to country districts. On the Boort-Quambatojk line the present daily service is to b? curtailed to three trains per week, -and the Wycheproof-Sea Lake line will have a similar service. It would appear from this that the people in the country, especi ally in these northern districts, are given no consideration what ayer. From the recent review published by the Railway Com missioners it is clearly shown chat for years these trains have fceen paying handsomely, but be-' cause the country is suffering from the effects of the drought and there may be a little loss three trains per week are being cut off. This is not fair or just, and the people of the district are offering a strong protest against the curtailment.'

Australian Soldiers. Another of our young man has gone into camp at Broad meadows. Mr Ted Gross left hete last week to go into training for service at the front, and will be ready for the third contingent. State Govcrnmont and Whoat. A large number of applications are being received by the Crown Law department from country millers and others, asking to be supplied with wheat. One per son modestly asked for 15,000 ba;;s. It is pointed out by Mr M'Kinnon that the State Govern ment has no power to "seize" wheat. The only power given is that anybody who desires to pur chase may take legal proceedings against the holder of the wheat if there is a refusal to sail at or below the "declared" price, but no such proceedings can be taken without the consent of the Attor ney-General. The British Govern ment has power to make seizures under the Unreasonable Prices of Food Act, passed o.i 10th August last, and the Ne.v South Wales Government has since passed a measure of a similar character.
