WIMMERA GRASS FOUNDER. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 21 December 1915

W1A1MERA GRASS FOUNDER. What is commonly known iu the Wimuiera as grass fouuder, which generally prevails during periods following droughts, has made its reappearance in the Jeparit district. The uialady attacks only young horse", principally draughts, with the result that soon after becoming affected the animals are rendered bow legged, which remains a per manent blemish, although not iu any way interfering with their use fulness. It is assumed that the complaiut is the direct result of a weed, or a superabundance of rich food. Some Wimmera farmers have as many as six young horses affected iu this manner.

Nl'AVS FROM KVKRYWI-IURE CORACK MAIL SERVICE Disappointment and surprise were expressed (hays the Knsign) last week, wheu the Wycheproof-Cor ack East mail commenced to rut: on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Some misunderstanding is thought to exist, as the residents recently forwarded a petition for a tri-week ly service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and the amount of guarantee required for such service. A meeting will be held at Corack to discuss the matter, but'as the mail contractor has intimated his williug ness to run the mail on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays to meet the wishes of petitioners, there is little else to do than to ask the pos tal authorities to change the days as petitioned for.

THE CALL TO THIS CONORS. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 21 December 1915

THE CALL TO THIS CONORS. Sir,—May I say that t lie discus sion on tbe recruiting campaign.at & Donald Council has giveu tbe pblic much food for thought ? We interested, because Cr Cantweil iasopenly declared that he will not ':cd his support to conscription. No doubt the Shire President has Ik courage of his convictions on &at point, but I object to the Fed wl scheme being branded as coer cive. Evidently, Mr Cantweil has sad Webster to but little purpose, is coercive signifies compulsion, or Is impel by force. We are not Ken compelled.to endorse the ap pal : it is inquisitorial, but may be ■rated confidentially. The Shire ■'resident had a slap-dash at the ;-irettable action of the Trades ijfeil. but he evidently overlooks the j'-t that he is throwing cold water a the scheme, I have great per -aal regard for Cr Cantweil, and that, like Crs Basset and •proat, he will embrace the scheme, do all in his power to make the I'ftal campaign a success. —I am, &c SOLDIE...

THE WASTAGE OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 21 December 1915

Tin: WASTAGK OF WATER. Sir.—Allow me to congratulate Ccmuiissionu's McPherson and Pat terson for having made the sugges tiou that ;il! ratepayers should be aiijjid about the wastage of. water \r medium of circulars. Under :;e old system of advertising the :dces in the one paper, 75 per •at of the ratepayers never took :ht particular paper, and conse -.Kiiiiy were quite ignorant of the T;im'.s warnings. It may be re entered tliat several ratepayers in Ivnaiti were lined some time ago i:r wasting water, but in each case it amount was refunded, as no v::rin^ uotico had apppared in the I;Mi:s. the local paper "to which icy subscribed.

Geelong Wool Sales. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 21 December 1915

Geelong Wool Sales. Dennys I^ascelles I<iinited report: —12,000 bales were offered on Dec ember 16, our catalogue comprising 4764 bales which for Lhequaiity was we think the b;st section of wool j we ever submitted, and the general , run of prices forms a record for any Australian sale. It was raie for any fleece to sell under 15d, whilst 126 lots sold from lSd to 2.3,!-jd. There was a full attendance of buyers, and for all sound wools, ei ther crossbreds or merinos, there was excited competition, which was fairly divided between America, Yorkshire, and Scotland, with good help from Italy, Russia, and Japan. In our last report we stated "the market is wonderfully strong, and whilst prices are high we have every confidence in their continuance, so an enforced stoppage of sales may not result badly to woolgrowers," It is, therefore, gratifying for us to quote the market since our last sale as 5 per cent to 7*4 percent better for well grown merinos and cross bre^s, also free...

RED CROSS RECONCILIATION [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 21 December 1915

red cross reconciliation Sir,—Now'and then, but not too often, a good suggestion emanates from the Donald Shire Council, aud as one interested in the Red Cross work at Watchein, I appreciate the suggestion made by Crs Sproat and Basset that the societies sink their differences, and become united for the good of the cause. May I sug gest thaf Mrs McErvale and Mrs Hart, both of whom have done so much for the cause, interview their committees, aud endeavor to come to some airangemetit, whereby our soldiers will be lelieved of the pain they-must endure at being the inno cent cause of squabbles at home. The empire, in this dark hour, needs to be united, even in Wat chein, for unity is strength, and we need all possible strength to defeat our foes. The reason of the breach at Watchem is neither irrepressible nor irremediable ; neither partv are irreproachable. -I am, &e. AX OLIVE BRANCH. J
