OUR COMPLETE SHORT STORY. Mollie Yesterday. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

Mollie looked drearily around at •'this," the parlour of the boarding house ; at the portrait of the mythic al but definitely departed lord and master of the house, which stared weakly at her from, the opposite wall • at the worn horsehair chairs that seemed to have been bought and placed exactly there in the middle of the last century j at the teis table, with its bell jar of de&sicated fune ral flowers.

RSJBCTED FIFTEEN TIMES. After giving up his work as a motor car mechanic, Abraham Tuck man, of London, was rejected fifteen times by the recruiting officers in Great Britain. He was rejected on account of a broken bone in his left arm which had not set properly, but which had regained its normal free dom and power. After the fifteenth attempt to . enlist to avenge the deaths of his two'brothers killed at the front, Tuckman stowed away in a vessel sailing for Seattle. Sus pected of being a German spy .when Lie was discovered, he proved his identity, and was signed on as one of the crew, but deserted when the boat reached Seattle.

THE WHEAT CROP. 53,734,000 BUSHELS IN SIGHT. THIRTEEN-BUSHEL AVERAGE [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

53,734,000 BUSHELS IN SIGHT. I THIRTEE l)s -BUSHE L AVERAGE j Conditions in the wheat districts, present a very striking and happy contrast, compared with last year. The reports from the different wheat centres 12months ago were melan choly reading, for they were almost an unbroken story of disappointment and failure (says the 'S.M. Herald'). The reports this year, with rare ex ceptions, are full of bright anticipa tion aud hope of a good harvest; in some cases a better harvest than has ever been recorded. "Following a costly and unforgettable drought, the rain came in time to bless the wheat growers with a bounteous,year. The hot, parched, nature-fallowed soil . responded eagerly to the rain, and crops grew prolifically. Up to a certain period there was every rea son to anticipate a "bumper" har vest, but daring the last two months conditions in some portions of the wheat country have been 'sufficiently uupropitious to discount past antici pations to a great extent. As-regards the....

INDUSTRIAL BRITAIN. FACTORIES WORKING DAY AND NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

FACTORIES DAT AND: NIGHT. Mr. William Williamson, presi dent of the Master Bui]ders Asso ciation, who arrived in Sydney, from a trip through Great Britain, and America, by the steamer Niagara, speaks in glowing terms of the de termination of tne,British people to win this war. "I am convinced," said Mr. Williamson, 'that if the ■military authorities of Great Britain said conscription was necessary to morrow the people would agree,-to it at once. Kitchener's, new army now j amonnis to over 3,500,000, which is a big proportion of the population of Great Britain, and it makes ns think after all how small is the percentage of Australians in the field.

£16,000,000 PER WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

In the course of an article on "No Naval Battle—Why ?" which ap peared in the "Fortnightly Review," Mr. Archibald Hurd says that the German Fleet, which, during the past fifteen years cost £'300.000,000' to maintain, has completely failed to fulfil'any single one of the hopes on which it was based. Declaring that the British people would do well to he duly grateful for the blessings which have been theirs owing to naval .predominance during the war, Mr ll\ivd says that in the absence of complete command of the sea the British people would have had to face the following' week ly bill :— Increase in the cost of food by 50' per cent., rising the oatlav per head of tlie population from 8/ t > 12/ a week, £9,000,000. Decline in wages bill, about £2, 000,000. Increase in cost of other necessities and luxuries, £2,000,000. Loss of shipping, £1,000,000. Decline in. national income from investments £2,000,000.

THE DARDANELLES. FLEET WILL NOT SUCCEED. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

j —— • | FLEET WILL M)T SUCCEED/ I - - ■ - Ash mead Bartlett, the noted war', correspondent, interviewed, said that it was impossible for the fleet' alone to pierce the Dardanelles, and to at tempt it was silly. Th6 original ex pedition ary force was too small and insufficient for anything farther than a landing at Cape Helles, and it was wiser never to har,o landed afcAnzac, and the splendid Australians con Id have been used to provide sufficient driving force to storm Achi Baba. After the failure ou Achi Baba, and the final attack on May 8, the whole expedition should have been seriously reconsidered. It was then that we learnt the fighting strength of the Turks, but the staff seemed desirous to avoid facing the facts. The subsequent attacks on Achi Baba, involving tremendous loss,, should never have been made. We had advances on June 4th, 28th, and July 12th and loth, and, then having lost 30,000 or 40,000 men, the at tacks were suddenly .abandoned'. If we had taken Achi Baba wo ...

NEW SEASON'S WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

WHEAT. « A certain amount of speculative baling and selling of tlie new sea son's -wheat; has been, going on for weeks past, practically all over the State. The producer who lends him self to any-such business at the pre sent stage must only have himself to thank if he is called upon to make deliveries at a figure below the mar ket price. The rate of freight will not be declared till October 29, and absolutely the safest course for pro ducers to pursue is to, at least, .await the announeemout. New sea son's wheat was quoted fit 4/6 per bushel in Adelaide last week. Ap pearances are often untrustworthy, bat, 011 appearances, jthat was good buying, Freights are stated by cable to have been fixed for January-Feb ruary shipment at S5/ to 86/3 per ton. 'Freight at the former figure means 2/3^ per bushel off the Syd ney price of wheat.

BAYONET WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

No soldier's .like to face the bayo net. But thegdeatli-rate from cold steel is not so deadly as is generally supposed—perhaps because the ene my usually fly when they see it! In Prussia's war with Austria, in 1866, the doath-rate through wounds in flicted by-.the bayonet was given as four per cent, in the Austrian Army, ' and 5 per cent, in the ■Prussian. In their-war with the French in 187 0 the Germans killed niii' ty-nine'men with shrapnel-and the bullet for every one they- put- out of action with cold steel. But then, the Ger mans lack the dash necessary for a bayonet charge., If we turn to the 'work of our owi/troops, we find that 11 during the Crimean War,' at .the Battle of Inkerman, the bayonet - work of our men accounted efor the comparatively large number of ten in every 100. While during the Boer War some authorities have estimated the death-rate from this cause at S per cent, of those killed in action.

COST OF LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915

! Mi'. Kuibb's, Cominnowealth Sta» tist.cian, has -made available the re sults of his investigations as to the variation in the cost of-living.for the-■ third quarter of 1915. Compared with the previous quarter the figures, show that there was a considerable rise in the aggregate, notwithstand ing a decrease in September in prices, of f. od and groceries, amounting to 5.3 per cent on the average' for the six capital cities. This is due to the fact that the increase in prices in Jul y and August was so great that it more than counterbalanced the ef fects of the decline ; in September. The final result; is that the average increase in the cost of living for the six capital towns was 8.9 per cent. Compared with the corresponding quarter of last year tire average cost of food .and groceries for the *ix capi- ' tal tow us shows an . inc; er.se of. 35 per cent, while the cost of. housing has decreased 6 per cent.
