MR. A. H. MILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
MR. A. H. MILLER. Now that the " Oeo-ees " have sailed, and we have practically given oar last cheer, the time is perhaps op portune to direct public attention to the gloriously patriotic, self-sacri ficing, and unselfish services rendered by the secretary, Mr. A. H. Miller. It is probably an ovei'sight that those services hare not received public rec ognition. We understand the mem bers of the " Ooo-ees " are presenting Mr. Miller with an enlarged photo of himself to serve as a memento of the historic march, and -we hope to see bim fittingly rewarded by the people of Gilgandra. Had it not been for Mr. Miller, the route inarch would bave .fallen through. He controlled •jhe business from end to end, and the military authorities, State, Premier, aiad, N.S.W. Recruiting Association came under his organisation. On the arrival of the " Coo-ees" in Sydney, be and Colonel Ramiehotti took up'.'-the arrangement?, whilst Major Wynne lent an occasional hand. Mr. .Miller probably lost > hund...
A MILE BEYOND THE SUNSHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
A MILE BEYOND THE SUNSHINE. Civilisation is impossible without lieat, lack ing which we must revert to savagery. Herein lies the point wherein our kind evoluted above the beast. CooKlng, the comfort of the home, the making of the infinite variety of things go ing into the luxuries, the culture, the decencies which, in the aggregate, mean civilised life, are impossible without a fire being made. Heat moves all this machinery, ami it is by means of the coal which the miner digs out of the earth that such energising heat is almost en tirety obtained. Civilisation, then, . owes a great debt to that fellow mortal whose work ing day is spent amidst mephitie vapors and iii life-danger such as obtains in equal degreo in almost no other occupation, while the rest of us-enjoy our place in the' sun. The miner's life is indeed a peculiarly-hard, a joyless, and a sacrificial one. How all too frequently have our morning papers detailed, the blasting of human bodies by powder ,juul electric, shock...
MOTOR CARS DEARER. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
MOTOR CARS DEARER. "The high price of freight and the scarcity of it has materially increased the landing cost of motor cars," says Mr. Roy W. Sandford, of Roy W. Sanclford, Md., Sydney, "and it also seems as if the price of cars will go up higher still for the same reason. It-might; be a surprise to most people i© know that freight has increased over 300 per cent since the war, and : even now there is twice as much freight wanted as can be obtained. That is why motorcars cost so mnchj because they take up so much room. We, ourselves, have tried to keep the price of our cars down to what they were before the war, and we have succeeded in all of them, except with the small model 3*2 " Oakland," the price ©f which has been raised from £335 to £355, and a spare cover and tube are included in this advanced, price."" A peculiar thing, also, is the scarcity of cars ; every machine that •we can land is bought before it gets here. The other day we were over three dozen orders behind. This s...
THRIFT FOR ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
I I THRIFT FOR ALL. The bugle calls—"No waste!" And thrift becomes the fashion. Extravagance replaced By a sternly measured ration. We've got to help the fight By cutting down and screwing, We know the thing is right, So that's what we'll be doing. But there must be no lack Of thirst in other places. No methods loose ajid slack, No leakage that disgraces. No secret pockets lined, No measure running over, No waste of any kind, No greedy folk in clover. The war chest needs our aid. We'll do our bit to fill it— But every penny paid Must have its proper biMct! —Jessie Pope•

£40 PER SECOND! [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
£40 PER SECOND! Three million five hundred thousand pounds a day, '£14.5,833 an hour, £2430 a min ute, £40 a second. That is what the war is costing' us, accord ing to the computation of Mr. Asquith; and M; may be more. Indeed, it. may amount- to £5,000,000 a -day. .Taking it at its present figure, £3,500,000, do we realise what this yneans? • ■ . ' A workman earning 30s. a week could earn £7/8/ a year, and .his earnings would be spent in less than, two seconds. To' ruu the war for a single day it would take, the earn.bigs at the rate of 5s: a day of 14,000,000 work men. A great fuss, as Mr. J. M. Hogg©, 'M.P., points out, is being made about British M.P. 's salaries, which amount to £268,000 a year, a sum which would run the war fox less than two hours. Prom 1913-14 the raveuue of Great Britain amounted to £194,935,000, a sum .which would only provide sufficient monej'' for fifty-five days of war, while the £89,121,700 spent by the various municipalities for the same year would dis...
STARLIGHT AND MIDNIGHT. AN ORANGE-BORN BUSHRANGER. A RACY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
AN -ORANGE-BORN BtXSH II ANGER. A RACY STORY. "Milroy" the clever sporting writ er in the Sydney "Mail," provides • the public with much new informa tion of the old bushranging days. In a recent article he says —• A correspondent has asked the editor of the "Mail" to identify Star ligh.tj the famous robber chief in Bolfb BolcJrewood's "Robbery Under Arms." But^as Starlight was a crea ture »£ the author's brain the ques tion cannot well be answered. Sorse years ago a Melbourne paper doubt ed the ^accuracy of a paragraph of mine ' concerning a bold 'westener who was known as "Midnight," and the -writer asserted the author.of Wantabadgery outrage was the real Captain, 'Starlight. This pretty rogue a/nd gaolbird, however, was not the jsort of man -that a trained bush mar, and one so full of senti mei^t as Tom Browne (liolfe Boldre wood), would place on a pedestal as high as t\hat upon which ho perched his own ^"Starlight."

COMFLETE SHORT STORY. Miss Marsden's Country Visit. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
G05™ETE SHORT STOET Miss Marsclen settled 'hei'sej^BK fortably in her corner of the'railway •carriage, patted her hair, /put her feet on the foot-warmer, then, •••siiipftbicg her travelliiig-i^ig, 'Isn't it horridshe asked. 4 I replied.

J consider too wide to be in altogether goad taste. What do you think ?' «Miss Marsden wavered between a smile and a pont, undecided which it should be. Happily, the smile won. If there is one thing m this worlcf of ours more adorable than Miss Mars den's pout, it is her smile. It has one dimple at the north-east comer of her ;moath and another at the liorth-west, and the extia special smile for best occasions has two tiny ones lurking somewhere in the di rection of her dainty little chin. But they do not- appear when it is onlj* an •everyday smile, as in this instance; ■her ordinary smile, ho...

S.' Peters, how in the press. Statistics of lightning damage have been gathered from reports of the Cen sus Bureau, Weather Bureau, insurance com panies, fire marshals, etc. Mr. Peters finds that the property loss by lightning for this cofuntry averages about 8,000,000 dollars a year, of which by far the greater part oceurs in rural districts.

PRESERVING MILK POWDER. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
PRESERVING MILK POWDER. A method ha3 • lately- appeared in Europe for preserving various foods or ether products, and especially milk powder, the idea being ..based upon placing the substance in a sealed vessel or packing ease with inert gas, so that this latter prevents the usual'spoiling of con tents by the action of the air. In the French patented process, the milk powder is paeked in metal boxes of convenient size, which sire entirely sealed except for a pinhole that is left at the top. A number of such boxes is. put in a chamber, and the air is exhausted by means of an air pump. When thi3 operation is finished, valves are opened which allow nitrogen to enter the chamber, the boxes are quickly removed and the pinhole soldered be fore an appreciable amount of air has time to enter. In this way the contents of the boxes are kept in an atmosphere of inert gas, and the process is mo3t practical from an in dustrial-standpoint.
