EUMUNGERIE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 12 November 1915

(From our Correspondent.) Sickness-—A great many people,, old land iyoung, are suffering from either measles or influenza. Miss May Priest is laid ap suffering from the effects of a spider's bite. A like accident took Mr. I^red Richardson to the doctor on Friday last. Eumtingerie and the surrounding districts are becoming so well settled that it sljould soon see the advent ol! a doctor. The matter has already been spoken of by members of the Progress Association, and perhaps that body may convince the authori ties that Eumtingerie is a proper place to appoint a subsidised medical officer. The Weather—The rain that pro mised last week seems "off"—to. the satisfaction of haymaker's. Mean while some householders are carting iwate;1. The Council is also water carting. A man is engaged watering the trees recently planted. On Wed nesday last the thermometer rose to 101—the highest point this season.

TURKS FAIR FIGHTERS [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 12 November 1915

TURKS FAIR FIGHTERS Writing from Gallipoli, Bert Smith, a Bellirigen lud, savrf:—"In some Australian papers I regret to notice reports of great cruelty and barbarism committed by the enemy on oar lads who happen to be left behind wounded. I have asked a great many of the boys here if they ever saw anything of the atrocities that have been published in the press. There are several men here from the different States who only wish they could write and contradict a lot of things written by some of our lads. I think a man acts shame fully to send such a lot of lies to his people. I will be satisfied if the Germans fight in the same manner as. the Turks. The latter know their very existence in Europe is at stake, but they are fighting as fairly as the Allies I am glad to be able to con tradict some things that absent minded fools write, as they hear a thing and never worry to find oat if it is true or not."

"COO-EES" AND KISSES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 12 November 1915

"CDO-JSJSS" AND KISSES. Private W. Alston, who is a mem ber of the "Coo-ees," writing to a friend from Wellington, said : "We are having the time of oar lives everywhere along the track. The people had most maguificent spreads and at most places a banquet at night. I reckon the men who gave in their names and never came up are missing the time of their lives ; but you can't call them men, they are only shirkers. I myself have had good times in Gil, but nothing to compare with this. If they keep on treating us like this I will have to get a new suit of clothes, as these will be too small. The crops from | Dubbo to here look splendid. We j Gil. boys have ouv lips nearly kissed off by the girls. We have got so used to it that we kiss married women and all. It shows they think something of us."
