NOW, OR NEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 11 March 1916

NOW, OR NEVER. (Froni "The Sydney Morning Herald.") It is said . that there comes in every man's life one supreme mo nient when he is called upon to make some great decision, and all his future hangs on that decision. The failure or success of his life depends upon it. And it never comes again. We must .take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures. Such an opportunity comes to us now-to every young man whom God has blessed with health and strength. The Great War will not go on for ever-we believe that even now- we may read the signs of the beginning of the end; and the man who would grasp the greatest oppor tunity that will ever come to him cannot afford to let the present mo ment slip by. Every Australian who is young enough and strong enough, and is not bound by the very strongest. ties, should count it--at once a priv ilege and a duty to join the new army of 50,000 men, and carry on the work so nobly begun by his comrades. Every man who has lost a brother, every man who ...

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 67. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 11 March 1916

BACCHUS MARSH. By W. WILuLIAMs, B.A. No. 67. For years there had been no more devoted citizen of Bacchus Marsh than Mr. James Young. In course of time lie removed elsewhere, and apparently fell upon evil times, for July 27, 1878, a subscription was initiated to provide funds to place a railing and headstone upon his grave. He was buried in Nagambie cemetery, and his widow was anx ious that his grave should not be left untended and unnoticed. Mr. Hugh Meikle, August 24th, 1878. speaks: Sir,-I am not a mem ber of the Council, therefore what I have got to say cannot be of much account; but, as a friend of mine once said, at a meeting on the Pent land Hills, "It's no muckle sense I lihae got, but what I hae ye are wel conime tilt." So here goes. It is the opinion of many people that there is gold at the bottom of the Marsh; it is also my own belief, and why should there not, seeing that there is gold in all the creeks and rivers running into it? If there is not gold there is coal on the...
