OBITUARY. Ex-COUNCILLOR H. K. LAMBOURN, J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 8 January 1915

OBITUARY. ex-councillor h. k. la.m bourn, j.p, The death of ex-Conncillor H. K. Lambonrn on the 29th nit., in Mel bourne, has removed from our midst one of oar bestyfmblic men. Many m n oconpy petitions in pnb'ic life, but they are not pnblic men—they fondly hug themselves and think they are, bnt their mental vision is blinded and their actions coerced by something that may happen to their personal advant age or disadvantage in the fntnre. This was nqt so with ex Councillor Lam bonrn. As the ballet to the target, so was the coarse of his pnblic and also, it may bo said, his private life—straight and t'ne. It is not for ns to write a long disquisition on his public work. For a quarter of a century h'e has been associated with all oar public activities, and there are rnany^ monuments of his unremitting service. As a nisi) and a eonnoiLor he was held in the highest possible esteem, and it may be said th t to a large extent he dominated the conncil ibrongh the sterling qnali ties of bis...

Its best claim was that it wonld help men to fight and would supply courage, Dutch courage. The exports in war have arrived at the opposite conclusion. Russia forbids her soldiers to touch it. Germany has closed distilleries and breweries daring the war. Kitchener has cub out the rum ration and orders all presents of liquor to soldierB to be confiscated.

THE HOLIDAYS. A QUIET TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 8 January 1915

THE HOLIDAYS. A QUIET TIME. To the casual observer it would not have been apparent "on Christmas Eve that we were passing through a period of famine or that devastating war was holding nearly a dozen nations in its thrall. To all appearances the people were as happy and care-free, and th' ir pockets as deeply lined, as ever, and the various shop-keepers report trade almost as good as the previous year. The hotel-keeperp, on the other hand, were somewhat divided ; whilst some declared that trade was better than usnal, others stated that not half the nsual amennt of money was spent in drink this Xmas Eve, This may be accounted for by the drought; on the other band, it may be that we are becoming soberer as a people. Who can tell ? The holidays generally wore passed quietly, There were sports at Cobram and Goulbnrn Weir, regatta at Nagam bie, and races at Barmah, Mooroopna and Tocumwal, all of which drew good attendances from these parts, this beiDg more particularly so in regard to th...
