There was a good attendance. Dr. Long mentioned that assist ance was necessary if the work of ministering to the people in the vast solitudes of the west was to, con tinue. Here, miles removed from each other, dwelt people who but for the brotherhood would be without religious teaching. The Brotherhood, small as its num bers were, worked, over a huge area ■—'between 30,000 and 40,000 square miles. This country included the great "outback" and portions of " Southern Queensland.

EUMUNGERIE. \ (From our Correspondent.) Weather—In common with other dis tricts we enjoyed cool weather for a week or more up to \Vcdnesday last. These conditio;,s have helped the late crops wonderfully, though hay making has been slow. A good many, fanners say they cut too early. Iri some cases the second growth is a foot high. Sleeper Cutting—Sleeper cutters on the Dubbo-Duncdoo line are enjoying a little strike at present. At end of last week most of ihcm camc into the depot, at the instigation of so.ne person or per. sons who don't wield.the axe themselves No ; these gentry Jast mentioned arc on a less arduous wicket. They prefer to canter round the camps of workers in stilling the flattering doctrine that £1 a day (which is easily made by efficienj axemen at existing rates) is not a suffi cient wage, Incidentally, the agitators collect half-quids and other subscriptions from the chaps who-slog the axe.

THE SLEEPER INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915
THE SLEEPER INDUSTRY. The sleeper cutting industry in this district has been brought to a temporary standstill, owing to the contract entered into with Messrs. Barrie and Hendrieksen, some 12 mouths .ago, having been com plated. The number of sleepers at first con tracted for was 205,000, but was af terwards increased to 213,000, on various contingencies. Owing to the difficulty in accurately estimating the number cut, and to avoid an over-supply, Messrs. Barrie and Hen- j dricksen were granted a month's ex.- ' tension of time by the Department, j which undertook to accept all excess j sleepers during this period atj schedule rates. It was thought that I these terms would be acceptable to ! the men, pending further negotia- J tions. The coastal cutters, howevei, j where contracts were also completed, would irot consent to a renewal un less an increase in price was granted. It is said a 10 per cent advance was" offered; but while this was accept able to the ."western men, cutters on ...
SERGEANT-MAJOR LEE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915
SERGEANT-MAJOR LEE. At Lifchgow Methodist Church on Sunday night at a memorial service, the preacher was Sergeant Major Lee, of the Gilgandra "Coo-ees," who spoke on "The Christian Attit-. ude in War," taking for his text the words "Resist no evil." (Mathew 5.38). He said many misguided pacifists were using this text as a basis for argument that the Chris tian should not enter into war. Working along, the line that war was murder on a large scale, they sought to a^gne that the Christian's attitude should .be one of neutrality. One man had said, 'Imagine Jesus Christ in khaki and the Man of Cal vary in a cavalry charge.' Xjooking at the matter from this standpoint, it seemed impossible for the Chris tian to take part in this campaign. But he, the preacher, would like to paint another picture. There were two sides to every " story. Imagine the Saviour at a seaport town in England and watching Zeppelins dropping »death dealing bombs on defenceless women and children. Would the Man of j...

PECULIAR INJURY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915
PECULIAR INJURY. About five.'years'ago a bullock be longing to a Richmond River farmer became entangled in a wire fence, and a piece of the wire pierced the fleshy part of one of its legs. The bullock was held fast for some time, and in its efforts to release itself the wire became twisted and eventually broke. Recently the animal broke its neck through falling over a fence, and an examination revealed that daring the five years the bone grew round the wire. The bone has the appearance ot' being drilled, and the wire inserted. Although depastured on good country the bullock never fattened, due no doubt to pain caused by the wire.
