A Way Out. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 10 November 1915

a Way Out. In our issue of October 8 last, an article appeared under the above heading. At that time the wheat market was a most doubtful quantity. Today it is at least settled, but the uncertainty may easily be repeated in the future. That the farmers have a way out was shown in the article men tioned. but it depends entirely on themselves whether the way re mains open. Co-operation is the crux of the position, and it is ne cessary to show that unless the principle is carried out to the ex treme final, it is better left alone. Not a hundred miles away from Ouyen, a farmer shareholder in the Producers' Co-operative Com pany purchased his wheat sacks from an agent in preference to the company because the quoted price was a farthing less. That is the sort of thing that kills any co operative concern, and it is what has to Le guarded against most carefully. That grasping at the stray farthing and neglecting the prospective penny is bad. Every penny invested in co-operative concerns run...

Winning the toss, Park sent Ritchie and Lush in to the bowling of Featherby and Rogers. Lush got a single off Featherby and four off Rogers, but the latter got him in the same over, and the book should 1-5-14. Walker hit one back to Rogers, and the score remained.

Tragedy At Boinka. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 10 November 1915

Tragedy At Boinka. A sensation was caused on Mon- day of last week when it became known that a youth, named Row- land Hendy, son of a farmer at Boinka, had taken his own life. It appears that the lad (he was little more, being not quite 15 years of age) was conversing, to all appearances happily, and in the ordinary frame of mind, to his father and a neighbor. About a hour later the father rode across to the neighbor's place, conveying the horrifying news that the son had apparently very deliberately got a gun from the house, fixed an attachment to the trigger and a wire fence, and then discharged the weapon into his head. Why he should have committed the act is one of those inscrutable things which will probably never be fa~ thomed this side of the River. An inquiry was held before Mr. James Clark, J.P., on Tuesday. when the facts were related, and a verdict in accordance entered up.

A Warning Note. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

A Warning Note. This time last year, the people of Victoria as a whole had accepted the inevitable. The cops were a failure, and there was nothing for it but to sit down and hope. This year the hope seems probable of ample fulfilment. But the wheat is not yet in the bag, and disaster may easily be the lot if action to make assurance sure is not taken promptly. There can be Ro grand er sight than miles of waving gol den heads of wheat. It is one of the beautifiers of our summer land scape. Today we see those fields not yet all so golden as we antici pate in the near future, but very near it. And yet there is an aw ful danger of disaster. Almost da?ry we have a visitation of strong wi:.ds and very often these winds are hot. And it is here the dan ger lies. A pipefal 'of hot ashes, a match careleksy thrown, or even that bit of glass laying close to dry tindry grass, and in a few minutes nothing but blackened waste. We have seen it, and no one can say hýw or why it started. These fires ...
