BOY SCOUT ASSOCIATION To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 August 1914
BOY SCOUT ASSOCIATION. To the Editor. Sir-In the present turmoil, which involves nearly the whole world, we turn rwith interest to those who are rendering assistance, however small, to our empire in her hour of need. We notice that the boy scouts are doing their share, and it was by using boys to do men's work, and thus saving the men, that the boy scout movement ori ginated. Boys, trained as they are in the scout movement, can render valu able assistance in scouting, first aid, signalling and despatch run ning in actual warfare, and I wish to appeal to the Gippsland boys who are scouts,. or who have had scout training, to render all the assistance they can. Ishould be glad to receive with out delay the names of any boy scouts who will be willing to place their services at the disposal of the country if such should be ne cessary. At the same time I shall be glad to receive any. small con tributions from them towards .the patriotic fund, the amounts thus received to be forwarded as f...
GLENGARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 August 1914
GLENGARRY. --o-- The committee of the Glengarry Tennis Club held their annual ball in the hall on Thursday evening last. The Tennis ball is looked forward to as being the ball of the season, and judging from the large attendance it is no wonder that the ball proved such a success. Visitors were present from all the surroun ding districts. Miss M. King, the hort. secretary, is to be compnemen ted for the manner in which she carried out the arrangements. The hall was nicely decorated with flags and the colors of the club. There were about 70 couples present, and the music was supp'ied by Carter's band, from Stratford. From cither end of the hall a very animated scene presented itself, and the dresses of the ladies were very pretty. The catering was in the capable hands of Mr. Nicolson, of Toongabbie, and was everything that could be tlesired. Mr. C. Moller acted as M.C. The pro I ceeds of the ball are to be handed over to the mechanics' institute. It should be a substantial sum. Resid...
"THE HERO." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 August 1914
"THE HERO." - 0 - At the Methodist church, Tra ralgon, on Sunday evening, the Rev. W. H. Scurr continued his people's services, and preached on " The Hero.'" There was'a good congregation, and the choir, as sisted by several musical instru ments, rendered two special num bers. The preacher said that his remarks had special reference to Jesus, the greatest of all heroes. In describing the hero, the prea cher said that people recognised a hero intuitively, but could not explain why. They seemed to " sense" a hero. Carlyle defined a hero as a "great man." The meaning was great manhdo)cd Mo' ney did not make a hero. Great ness of character showed itself in the life of the hero. The heroic act of the man were in keeping with the man himself. He was not mean or self centred. The term presupposed battles fought and won on the field, in the world of litferature, in business or in the pulpit. The making ot heroes did not depend on situation. There were opportunities for heroic deeds in every...
KILMANY SETTLEMENT ROADS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 August 1914
KILMANY SETTLEMENT ROADS WANTED. At the meeting of the Rosedale shire council on Monday, a ntim ber of Kilmany settlers presented a petition, asking the council to approach the government with a view of getting a special grant for making roads in the area. Councillor Kenevin warmly sup ported the request. Councillor Davis said that the council had got very little help from the. Closer Settlement Board towards the cost of making roads in the area. At one time the coun cil Wtad expected some help, but later the board said that their funds were exhausted, and declined to 'do anything. The only thing for the council to do was that sug gested by the petitioners-appoint a deputation to wait on the Minis ters in charge of the Lands and Public Works departments, to ask for a special 'grant. When the wet weather set in the roads would be in a very bad state, and the set tlers would be put to very- great inconvenience. The road that the council asked the board to make was now in a deplorable ...
A STRONG MINISTRY. THE FEDERAL FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 August 1914
A STRONG MINISTRY. -0--~ THE FEDERAL FIGHT. War has inspired Australians with a new sense of solidarity.. They are united by dangers which threaten all, by a grim determina tion to maintain the integrity of the ;empire ,which is essential to the well-being of all. Mr. Cook and Sir William Irvine, Mr. Fisher and Mr. Hughes, meet the State Premiers, Labor and Liberal alike, at a conference which is national, as no other gathering of the kind has been. Laborites have with drawn opposition tb the return' of Mr. Cook, and the Liberals have allowed Mr. Fisher a free course. Everywhere those, who but a week or two ago rwere enthusiastic poli tical partisans, denouncing each other with a vigor which seemed exhaustless, are uniting to further the defence of the Commonwealth. It is not surprising, then, that many electors are eager to make an end of party strife. But alit tle consideration shows that thd shrinking from the struggle at the polls is exaggerated. What Aus tralia needs to-day is ...

Sanitary Contractor Bridges wai I ted on the council, and said he de sired to be relieved of the sanitary contract in the four townships Rosedale, Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarrr. Under the pre sent conditions he could not con tinue. The sanitary cart was leak ing, and it was impossible to get to the depot for Toongabbie and Cowwarr. There were other ob jections, and the householders would not adopt the recommenda tions of the nuisance inspector. He suggested that the council should adopt the double sealed pan system, which would be much cleaner, and less objectionable for 'many reasons, and the work would be done during the day. The shire council would proivide the pans, and he was prepared to Tfhl a w\tg gon and give a weekly service for £1 per pan per annum. During a recent illness, he was unable to get assistance. The secretary explained that T...

GORMANDALE. Following tpon the rainfall of of last month ,which was 590 points \ire are now having genial spring like weather. The grass-on the morass lands is coming along fait, and of 'the hi l country the same can be said. Speaking generally, however, a fall of rain will do the pastures and crops good. The cortimittee of the mechanics' institute are putting in a new Kauri floor in the hall, and" intend car rying out other needful improve ments. Some of the Rosedaleboys came along last Saturday, to play a foot ball match with the local lads. Owing to insufficiant notice, no match took place, as only four of the local 'school boys were on the ground. Thorinhas' hill contract seems to have been deferred for the present, owing to" the unsettled state of things caused by the.war • The belated account of a friendly rifle club 'match between Upper Traralgon Creek and Gormandale should have appeared before. The contest took place on the local range, and after a keen struggle, the honors ...
