THE "COO-EE" SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
THE "COO-EE" SONG. Warren "Herald," referring to the "Coo-ee" song, just published, says : —"There -is a pathetic interest in connection with this song in this and other western districts by the fact that the words were composed by the late Mr William Jones, license/?.' surveyor, one of Warren's oldest and most respected . residents, who met an untimely and tragic end at Collie a few months ago, and the song is de dicated to his widow. He wrote the stirring words of this Gilgandra March Song, never thinking that he would be laid to rest at Gilgandra before the song was printed. Cop ies may be obtained at this office, and we have no doubt that the de mand will be very heavy." [The remains of Mr Jones were interred at Sydney—not Gilgandra.—Ed.]

GLORY OF THE COLONIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
GLORY OF THE COLONIALS. (By Austin Harrison). After-the first German gas attacita we\w#r0 permitted to know somehing about the iWg- 1 nificent behaviour of the Canadians. TlAngs trickled through the Censorship. Gradl Y(i,y. we learned here—it is the only way of lfywuYr. ing things—how heroically the Canadians . had held their ground, with what elan they had fought; how they indeed saved a peculiarly difficult and dangerous situation caused by the suddenness and novelty of the German gas. But to our surprise little was said in'the Press. It is only indirectly that we came to\ hear of"\ one of the most splendid achievements In the war, and to tell the truth, we were not a little [ surprised—we who had rather resented the de bonnair conduct of the Canadians on our [ shores—we -who had rather sniffed at their (shall I say?) apparent want of discipline. Yet when the shock came these were the men, these were the heroes. Their conduct on the field was by common consent magnificent And what...

JAPAN SUPPLANTS GERMANY. IN THE PACIFIC. Dr. J. Ingram Bryan, from Tokyo, Nov. 1.:— Since ths outbreak of the war, when German ships and trade disappeared from the. Pacific,. Japan has been busily laying plans to capture the German trad« fields in Australia, New Zealand, China, the Straits Settlements, and South America; and now, after more than a year of effort, she can look back with every encouragement upon her enterprise. To be sure of knowing just what goods Ger many supplied to Australia and New Zealand, and to ensure satisfaction among importers in those countries, the Japanese Government en gaged a trade specialist from Sydney in the person of Mr. Alexander Brown, who, since hi» arrival in Japan some months ago, has been | devoting himself to the duty of visiting the factories and export firms of the country, giv ing lectures on the needs of the South Sea regions, and instructing the Japanese manu facturers and exporters generally on how to meet the wants of Australia and ne...

BRIEF DECISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
BRIEF DECISION'S. Everybody Jtnows just what a widow it going to do next, but no one can be sure just when. Some people sell outrfor money, while oth ers let money give them away. A pessimist is a man who doesn't know any body who cares to know him. When there isn't anything to talk about, woman alone can do it justice It, isn't what a man knows that counts, but what he is reputed to know. He learns most in the school of experience who loves his teacher best. All things come to him who waits-—if he gets there in time. Uncle Si Says.—Uncle Si says that the J £2000 a, month aviator forever refutes the idea that you can't live on air. Some philosopher, j eh, wot?—Texas Longhorn. :
CRYSTAL PICTURE PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916
CRYSTAL, PICTURE PALACE. The Crystal Picture Palace, which is one of the building adornments of the town was opened to the public on Saturday afternoon last, when a mat inee entertainment was ^i-ven. In view of the fact that the enterprising manager, Mr. Levy, had advertised the opening to take place in Febru ary, he had the work pushed on with unusual speed, and was able to open the doors on Satardaj7", when the hall was crowded to the doors. Many make-shifts had to be availed of in order to allow of the Palace being opened. Not even a trial picture.was ran through beforehand. As' a re sult, the pictures screened at the matinee were very, imperfect. It was in itself a " trial show," and because the pictures were not satisfactory, "• Mick " is giving a free matinee for children on Saturday next at three o'clock. At night the hall was again packed, and in the meantime im provements^ had been effected which showed the pictures to much better advantage. It was a rattling pro gramme tha...
