Quambatook Patriotic Fund. A general meeting of subscrib ers to the Quambatook Patriotic Fund was held in the Mechanics' Hall on Saturday evening last. Mr John King presided. The main business of the meeting was that of determining how the money collected for the fund should be applied. Mr Douglas moved that, the whole of the money should be sent to the Lord Mayor's Belgian Relief Fund. He drew attention to the great need in which the Belgians stood of any help that we could give them, and to the wonderful service rendered by their army at the beginning of the war in checking the invasion of France. The motion was seconded by Mr Pidgeon and carried unani mously. Appended'is a statement of the fund as it stands at present:— Receipts.

SPORTING NOTES. THE GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

SPORTING NOTES. THE GUN. The Quambatook and District Gun Ciub held their third shoot for the silver cup presented by Messrs Gillies and Rogers, which has to be won twice, at a 10-bird sparrow match, with sweepstake attached. The strong wind which was blowing made the birds very fast, but the shooting on the whole showed a marked improve ment on that of previous matches. There was a good gathering of interested spectators present to witness the match, which was won by D. Gardiner, sen., who killed 9 out of his 10 birds, which was a really good performance. L. Meney was runner up with 8 kills, and he divided the sweep stake, There were 19 competi tors. After the match a sweep stake of 5 birds was shot off. This was won by J. Purcell, who killed all his birds, D. Gardiner being second with one miss. The scores were D. Gardiner, sen. 1.1,1,0,1,1,1,1,1,1—9 L. Meney 1,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,1,1-8 W, Gross 0,1,1,1 0,1,1,1,1,0-7 L.

ULTIMA. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

ULTIMA. Since Tuesday the Chillingoliah branch of this institution has been closed, and in future an official from the Ultima office will visit there twice weekly. Mr J. Burton, teller at the northern branch is to be permanently con nected with this office and will be an acquisition-in sporting and social circles. It seems almost certain that a permanent male teacher is to take control of the local State School and those attending it, and the many opinions for and against any such appointment would appear to have by mutual consent ceased to be given voice. That the Ultima school had ad vanced in every respect under the control of the lately departed and respected Mrs Elliott there can be no doubt, for one glance at the outside as well as the in side gives proof of energy and a whole-souled love for the better ment of the school, its surround ings and scholars. There has been many attempts to secure a male teacher, ar.d recently Mr Hamilton was temporarily ap pointed, and now we lear...

Michael Cummins' Sad End. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

J V'.x. ■ ■ : Michael Cummins' Sad End. The death of the late Michael Cummins, which occurred on his farm at Korrak Korrak, under such painful and-terrible circum stances, has been one of the chief topics of conversation. A visit to his farm, where he met with such a sad end leads one to re flect on the danger which an old man undergoes, especially when in indifferent health, by living entirely to himself. The hut in which the oil man lived was built by himself when he took up the land 37 years ago. The hut was of pine logs and had been a very comfortable one at the time, but as the man grew older he had neglected to attend to it, and as years grew on the chim ney, which was of mud brick, had become affected by the weather, and pressing against the end of the building had given it a dangerous list,' and some of the logs had slipped from their position. The old man, however, had been very careful of his per sonal comforts, and kept himself well provided with comforts and protection a...

Some War Stories. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

Some War Stories. A wounded soldier opeiated on in Paris was found to bo suffering from no fewer than OS separate and distinct wounds, most of them from bullets and fragments of shell. The surgeons de clare that, notwithstanding the extra old nary character and extent of the injuries", thi man will probably recover. An 80-year-old woman named Bataille, living in the French village of Thuit Angor, had suven sons at the front, six ol' whom are wounded in hospital and one is a prist.n?r :n the hands of tho German?. E ich of these sons is the father of seven children. A correspondent of the "Secolo," c irious to discover the temper of the Indian troop ■, addressed one of them in camp in France. "Are you glad," he t\-ked, " to have to come here to fight fur a country which is not yours— Fian.-o—at the bidding of anoth'. r country England — which dominates _ you?" Tho indii n 1 jrkul at him with eyi s full of wonder and indignation, and replied " ln-lia is not oppressed by anyen? ; she is...

THE INLANDER. [ never climb a high hill Or gaze across the lea,. But, oh, beyond H12 two of them, Beyond the height and blue ol ... them, I'm looking for the sea. A blue sea—a crooning sea— A gray s?a lashed with fcam But, oh, to take tlu drllOof it, To know the surge and lirt of it, And 'tis I am longing for it as the homeless long for home. I never dream at night time Or close my eyes by day, But there I have the might of it., Tho wind-whipped, sun-drerf:hc<J sight of it, That calls my soul away. Oh, deep dreams and happy dreams, It's dreaming still I'd be, For still the land I'm waking in, . 'Tis that my heart is breaking in, And 'tis far where I'd he sleeping with the blue waves over me. —Thcodosia Garrison,, in "Hamp ton's Magazine/'

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

j OF RURAL INTEREST (by "Rustic.is.") It's ft pity th.it the decision to drop the regulation fixing the price of wheat was not arrived at earlier. It would liiivi: made a difference in the total of Victoria's yield. Crops that have been out for hay or opened to stock would have been harvested it' there had been the prospect of C/G or 7/» a bushel. And they would have given good re turns to the fanners as well as helping the .State out of the difficulty a big shortage in the quantity needed en tails. The later,♦ development of the erratic course steered in connection with this nmtter has brought disaster to many of the when;- operators. Take one instance —an old Jinn, regarded as being solid in the best sense of the term, and rated at about the £20,01)0 mark. The soaring of wheat as the resoult of the removal of the restriction as to price means insolvency for them, utter and complete. Operators of this class con tracted before the war to deliver large parcels of grain at prices rang...
