Local And General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 11 August 1915
Local And General. The following Mallee allotments are available up to Wednesday 25th August --Allotments 23-23A, 3% miles north-east of Chillingollah, 674a 2r 25p, second class, parish of Turoar; allots. 7, 20, 41, 45-48, 3-17, 16 46,, parish of Pirno; allots 40, 41-42, 4, Tyalia. Two telegrams received in the district last Thursday gave the in formation that Sergt. A. Glen, of WValpenp had been sent to Malta hosnit'l ill, and Pte. S. Booley, of INyang, had been wounded. In neither case was the temporary stop stated to be serious, so we are hoping to hear of both soon being in the game again. The matter of the referendum on the question of the Shire Hall site is practically settled out of court. The offer by Mrs. Grace of a block of land on the east side has been withdrawn, and as a consequence, a special meeting of the Shire coun cil is to be held at Murrayville on Friday, to deal with a notice of mo tion to rescind the previous one to take a referendum on the subject.

In Defence of Cain. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 11 August 1915
In Defence oY eain. .In the gccTd old days there lived one, Ca:I, He was the -rst Cockie who tilled the ne; plain, But by all accounts he sought after gain In rather much hurry. And this proved the cause of his downfall and pain Mid life-long worry. Poor Cain was hot tempered, a mad headed lout.; That his tenr-er ran riot, there seems little doubt ; One day, in race. he struck Abel a clout. His owrn brother Abel. Whether struck ou the point or the nark or the snout Is untold in the fable. However, it served to put out Abel's light, And it did not appear like a good stand-up fight. Cain seems to have taken a sitting shot sight Like a Cerman sniper, And I have to admit that it wasn't quite right Thus acting the viper. But then poor old Cain had been dreadfully narked. His offerings had all with "rejec ted" been marked, And that from "Above," can you wonder he barked ? Appeal was in vain. His hot temper rose, his hatred was sparked, Poor impetuous Cain. When asked about Abel, his an sw...

Boorongie Bits. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 11 August 1915
In common with other parts of t he Mallee, the rain in this locality during the past two months has been patchy. While one gauge re gistered 200 points, out east they got a lot more of Jupiter Pluvius' favors. Last week's fall was just that for the cereal crops, and we rejoice accordingly. The crops never looked better, although in some of the early sown ones, mus tard is more plentiful than could be desired, while thistles are also show ing. Shoot cutting and stump picking is about finished-that is fcr this season. M'Kenzie Bros. have over 200 acres of well worked fallowing done. - while others are just beginning to plow. As green feed is coming on rapidly, buying chaff as lots of sovereigns is just about out of the question. and hol ders will be sorry. Another volunteer, in Charley Campbell, has left for camp. In this parish it is doubtful if there are more that three or four single men left who could offer their ser vices in response to the country's call. Well done, Boorongie. M...

Walpeup Warbles. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 11 August 1915
Walpeup Warbles. Nature having set the example, people must needs follow, and we are moving some. A splendidly attended meeting was held on Monday week to consider the ques tion of reinvigorating our local body of progress. The old Pro gress Association was disbanded, and the new one which takes its place promises to be something de serving of the name. It is called the League of Progress, and its objects are not so much to hunt around and find weak spots in which to pick holes as to help things forward. After the busi ness portion of each meeting, sub jects of interest to members will be discussed, and on certain nights particular items are to be chosen for debate. Thus it is hoped to make the body educational as well as progressive. Mr. T. -i. Cregan is president, and Mr. Brocklebank, hon. sec., while ?a committee of four will act with the president, two vice, and secretary as an exe cutive. Among the first subjects to be dealt with are railway facili lities and forest reserves. T...
Cowangie Cuts. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 11 August 1915
Cowangie Cuts. Our Debating Society had a splendid night on Saturday, 31st ult. Over 100 put in an appear- ance and the evening passed pleas- antly in song, story and dance. The ladies provided a grand sup- per, and you can bet everyone did full justice to that portion of the proceedings. A collection taken up added to the balance from the send-off to recruits a week previous made a total of £6 11/, which has been sent to swell the Wounded Soldiers' Fund in Melbourne. Last Saturday, the members proceeded to Duddo, where a football match in the afternocn was followed by a most successful social at night. A meeting of farmers has been convened for Saturday next by Mr A. Brown, president of the Pro- gress Association, to arrange for a percentage contribution from the harvest for the various Patriotic Funds. This is a move which might well be followed through- out, for of the fulness each can spare a little.

But, he added, there were others be sides farmers'volunteering. Work inig men were giving up .steady billets, oftener than not, at 10/ or in6ie a day, togo.to the. front at 6f a day. Many of these had de pendents, and the Temrarkable thing was that the attestation pa pers laid it down that from' theday of emnbarkatiois, the separation al lowance ceased. He wanted to know if some scheme could not be devised vheireby the wages of these men would be raised to at least what they were earning before they enlisted ? There's the question, and it is for you to ponder it. We know, by the lists of, those going, .that there are wives and families who will be expected to exist on what the soldier allows.
