Gunyah Gunyah. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 January 1915

Gunyah G.unyah. • The annual ladies nomination rifle match was carried out as usual on No. 1 range on Boxing Day. The weather aonditions were very bad for shooting, a drizzling rain falling most of the time, which at times de veloped into a very thick mist, al most obscuring the target. At times it was almost impossible to read the markings on the targets. This accounted for the very poor shooting, and made it everything but encouraging for the new members, which at the present form the major portion of the ciub. Five new members were sworn in during the match. The conditions were eight shots at 500 yards. Although the weather conditions were so very un pleasant the attendance; of ladies and visitors was a record one, the club room was taxed to its utmost to pro vide standing room during the time of presentation of prizes by the cap tain. Two meals were provided by the ladies, and in spite of all the dif ficulties the match was over in good time so that all were able to get home to ...

"There is too much sameness about the regatta," people are heard to remark, yet year after year the same crowd meals to witness the same programme, and of having an other day's outing at the same old haunt. The question is often raised, why not more land sports? No place in the shire presents such pos sibilities, and with a far more com prehensive programme worked by men from outside the Port, the day could be made to eclipse Toora's an nual effort. I...

Wolfe's Schnapps" the World's Nightcap. Buy Whole Bottles. A; LONG-SERVICE TRAMWAY OFFICER MR. CHARLES ROCK 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, for 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway Company, writes this letter (2/4/12), which is of special interest to ill Rail way and Tramway mem, to CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "In December, 1911,1 caught cold and serious pleurisy. For three days my temperature was 104 degrees. My life was des paired of, but through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day, he advised my wife to get Clements Tonic, as 'THERE WAS LIFE IN THAT MEDICINE.' They were the truest words he ever uttered, and I would have been dead only for that grand medi cine. My wife paid 2/3 for the small bottles, had she paid £40 she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of letters about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give the proper value of.that medicine. - (Signed) CHARLES ROCK."

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (to the editor). Sir,—If it-would not be troubling you too much it W5uld be interesting to learn what the now progress association is doing, or what it proposes doing. A lot of things hiwo occurrod siooe its inception but nothing seems to have been done. In reference to the post offico it appears that wo are to go on as we were, which is not a popular idea of the people. The change in tho railway time-table is a matter that might be discussed, also the matcer of lighting the township, and tho proper representation of Toora in the shiro coun cil, might with advantage be brought for ward. There are numerous othermattors this body should take in hand. —Yours,' Toora 5/1/15. (to the editor).

THE ENSIGN FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1915. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 January 1915

THE ENSIGN FRIDAY, JANUARY 8,-1015. A party of Foster holiday pleasure, seekers passed an excellent time on the Promontory during the past week, but their experience on the water proved much m«re exhilarating than on the land by the hauling in of sharkB. Amidst great excitement our local legal defender of the bar lodged one of these human devourers to the boats edge when in an attempt to strike it with a sharp-edged weapon the line was accidentally cut and the monster departed, the nxe going also. How ever, on resuming operations, our worthy angler excitedly announced a further capture and called upon Ilia companions to assist in hauling in what was considered to be a much larger shark, but to their disgust on reaching the surface it was the anchor to which the boat was firmly supported. The catch was a good one no doubt, but not a reliahable one. The annual meeting of subscribers to the Wonga mechanics' is called for Tuesday next at 8 p.m. The Foster beach proved very ac ceptable t...

THE ENSIGN FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 191.";. Tin; cow tutting associations through out the States, writes " Hoard's Duiry nitin," are working into the conviction of farmers in a way that often brings the owner of .1 herd up with .1 round turn. They never supposed that they were keeping so many cows of such low eapacity. It is hard to make a roati who has always guessed at every thing, and never kept records, believe that his guesswork judgment 011 cows is not good chough. One of the testers was telling us tho o'ther cay that in one held of thirty, fourteen were found, after a year's test, to have earned less than their feed cost. Jle said the owner could hardly believe tho evi dence, yet there it was. The " Leader" gives a splendid il lustration of the famous pure bred Jersey bull " Lird Twylish ' as im ported by .Mr. 0. T.

OUR SOLDIERS IN EGYPT THE FIRST SCEXE. (Prom C. E. Bean, Australian Press Representative with tlie Austra linn Tmnerial Force). CAIRO, December 7th. While the Australian Imperial Force with the New Zealanders were steaming up the Red Sea about three days out of Suez, a wireless message arrived, forwarded by Sir George Reid, stating that the British Gov ernment had come to a decision, the effect of which may be stated on official authority to he, that the Aus tralians and New Zealanders should disembark in Egypt "for the defence of the country and for training." They were to go into camp at once near Cairo, and were told officially from Great Britain that they were to go to the front from Egypt. Although this intimation came without any preface, and the flagship had had to obtain leave to steam ahead at once with all possible speed to make preparations, it cannot be said that this order was unexpected. There was too much to be said in favor of it for it to be anything like a real sur...
