The Art of Forestry. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 17 June 1915
The Art of Forestry. Forestry Is a profession which of fers an irrlsistable appeal to lovers of outdoor life, and although its cul tivation has only recently been seri ously undertaken, it has already gained a largo number of followers. To the pioneers erf Australia a big tree meant little mora than an ob struction to bo eradicated with as much expedition as possible. The jpastorallet took no interest in the. forests; of beautiful and valuable timbers, and the ideal of the farmer .was a landscape devoid of any ar borlal vegetation other than the easily manipulated mallee scrub. It le not surprising, therefore, that a nation grew up strangely wanting in any aesthetic appreciation of the beauties of trec-covered areas or even of the commercial value which lies In forest country. It was only as the country progressed, towns sprang Into being and developed, and the demands of the builder became more urgent that the art of forestry be came properly recognised as an art whoso results are ...

Football. Marungi v. Yabba North. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 17 June 1915
Football. Marungi v. Yabba North. The Katandra District Football Association matches commenced last Saturday, when Yabba tra velled to Marungi and met that team in competition. The game, which proved very interesting from a spectator's point of view, was evenly contested throughout. Both clubs had a full complement of players, though lack of practise was sometimes very noticeable. Marungi won the toss and elected to take advantage, of the light breeze blowing, but although they battled manfully they failed to make much use of it, and the first term ended in favor of Yabba by 7 points to 1. At the change, the wind having died down, the play became a bit scrambly. From a mark, B. McGarry put up the first goal of the day for Yabba, and this was followed by a few minor points. At "lemon-time" the scores were-Yabba, 1 goal 10 behinds ; Marungi, 1 point. On resuming, Marungi went off with great dash, notching three goals in quick succession. Yabba then began to assert themselves, and just...

Shepparton Shire sought co operation in carrying out 9 chs forming and 13H chains clearing on boundary road between the two shires, and south of the Marionville State School.- Co operation granted. P. F. Sprague, secretary Kata matite Rifle Club, wrote that about 50 intending members wished to re-establish the old rifle club on the usual site. The Defence authorities had instruct ed him to write and ask the coun cil whether they would close the road along the back of the race course. The road referred to runs east and west from Benalla road, and is seldom used. The Defence Department would not move in the matter of re-organising until the club had gained the consent of the council to have the road closed. Perhaps it might be pos sible to have the road closed tem porarily, during practice of a...
Recruiting For Australian Imperial Force. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 17 June 1915
Kecruiting' For Australian Imperial Force. Recruiting has shown a marked falling off lately. Although no new units may at present be under organisation, it is vitally important that there should bo no shortage of recruits for roin forcements. There may be some idea abroad that enlistment for reinforcements is not so neces sary nor nearly so important as enlistment for a definite unit. This is quite incorrect. It is far more necessary that reinforce ments be provided at present than new units. Reinforcements are urgently required to maintain units at the front at their normal strength. Men must be forth coming without delay to replaco those fallen and to support and strengthen the gallant Australians fighting in Gallipoli. Men enlisted for reinforcements mast have at least three months training before embarkation. One draft of reinforcemento is at pre sent nearly 2,000 short of require ments. To maintain units now at the front Australia is pledged to provide each month 5,300 sol dier...

THE PROMISE OF PEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 24 June 1915
THE PROMISE OF PEAT. When coal is gone peat promises to take its place-and more. The peat bogs of Ireland cover about 2,831, 000 acres, estimated to contain 39, 972,000,000 tons of fuel of tlie valuo of -C-SfiO,000,000 ; Scotland has great deposits ; and in England and Wales there are some G,000,000 acres. Apathy in utilising this great natu ral resource may be attributed to the abundance of coal. Chief among the products of peat are peat fuel and peat charcoal, with such by-products as naphtha, sulphate of ammonia, acetic acid, tar, and paraffin wax, but there are also moss litter (al ready an important industry on the Continent), manure, preservatives, and sheep dip3, paper, cardboard and millboards, disinfectants, artificial wool, and filtering and absorbing ma terial. Though supplying antiseptic wools and dressing, the special medi cinal value rests in use for peat baths. Russia's army is enormous. On a peace footing it numbers 1,500,000 men and 5,'100,000 for war. Its de fect i...
ELECTING A QUEEN COW. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 24 June 1915
ELECTING A QUEEN COW. In the Rhone Valley, Switzerland, an extraordinary ceremony is carried out every summer. This is the choos ing of u queen cow by the cows themselves. A large number ot co.vs --there are over 200 this year-are assembled in a field to chouse their queen. The queen cow is the one which is strong enough to fight all the other cows -off the pasture and remain in possession of it herself. The owners of the cows are not al lowed to encourage their beasts in any way. The honour of owning a queen cow is keenly coveted by tho local herdsmen, and they do every thing th£y can in order to turn their animal out a winner. In their eager ness to bring their beasts fit and well on tho day of battle, many of the herdsmen feed them for a week or a fortnight beforehand on broad and wine. Tho cows descend from a fighting race, and are always eager to have a scrap. The "election" of the queen cow often lasts the greater part of the day, and is watched by crowds, who como to tho scen...

RUSSIAN SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 24 June 1915
RUSSIAN SOLDIKKS. Many military experts-have a pro found admiration for the Russian soldi,'i', whose very lack of imagina tion and education makes liim tena cious and fearless, devoid oi class ambitions and sensitiveness. The Slav mind, quick though it he to make plans and estimates, is slow in interpreting them into action and movement, so that the average Uua siiui moujik may he sent to certain death or led to victory with equal lack of interest in the event in which he is but an inanimate pawn. Never theless, ho is a fine fighting machine, and is well equipped. Properly di rected hy skilful generals, the Rus sian army is capable of anything.

Causes of Great Wars. A BLOW THAT COST 20,000 MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 24 June 1915
Causes of Great Wars. A BLOW THAT COST 20,000 MEN. Tin? Austro-Scrvian War was no doubt largely due to the murder of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand arid bin consort at Sarajevo. Similarly it. was the assassination, in March, 1SII7, of the Turkish chief of gendarmerie by the Macedonian brigand leader, Nicholas Martino vitch, coupled with the fact of his being shielded by the Greek Govern ment after ho had taken refuge in Thessalv, that brought about the Graeco-Turkish war of that year. Upon two occasions at all events has the murder of a British subject been summarily avenged by armed force. The first was in 3656, when the murder by Chinese officials of the captain of the British ship "Arrow" was followed almost immediately by a declaration of war, in the course of which the Chinese fleet was prac tically annihilated and Canton was bombarded and partially destroyed. Six years later we were at war with Japan over a somewhat similar in cident, a Mr. Richardson, an English merchant livi...
