Still There. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 November 1915

Still There. An amusing incident. occurred recently during the course of a de putation that, in the abseiice of the MIiuister, was received by the Sec retary for Public Works, Mr Drake. The latter, who is. possessed of a fund of quiet, dry humor, remark ed, "tWhat about that little story of the man who was travelling along one of your roads and came across a hat sticking in the mad. When he went to pick it up he found it on the head of a man who was digging out his horse and cart." Mr. Drake looked round the deputation for a -moment with an air of " That stops some of your exaggeration." The laugh was, however, on the Secretary when a quiet voice from the deputation re plied, "That story is quite true. sir. That hole is still the! e. ania the cart h.as not been dug our.' Vhcti the: simmer ci rmirth iila lied dowu, all Mr. Drake could say, After'that ass,, ancte, gentl: mlen, there is nothing left for me but to recommend favorably to the • inister your application."

Coming Home. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 November 1915

coming Rome. There are times when the mind fails to grasp even the semblance; the pen can do no more than spill ink, and the tongue fails in ex pression. Here in the heart of the bush we have got almost used to "send-offs" to soldiers, and we do what we can to show our apprecia tion of the noble sacrifices made in our interests. But the welcome home! One has to witness the scene to even feebly imagine it. There, at the pier, lies the great transport. towering high above the deck level of the wharf, disrepu table in her coat after six weeks' battle with the elements, and her rails crowded with some of those men we sent away a few months ago full of health and vigor. full of hope and anticipation. Now some are returning. Sad ? No, but with a thoughtfulness of'ex pression which tells of what they have seen and heard. There an arm in a sling; here a pair of dark glasses telling of the loss of the great gift of sight. Here an emp ty sleeve; there the one leg of trousers turned up, and a ...

Agricultural Colleges. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 November 1915

Agricultural eolleges. Mr. H. Pye, Principal of the Dookie Agricultural College, in his report for October, states that dur ing the month, and to the middle of November, the indications of the harvest for the district can with some approximation be estimated, especially in the case of the early crops. During the first two weeks of November the mid-season and later varieties of wheat make their most vigorous developement, and the flowexing stage is most vigor ous. So far the district has been free from late frosts and pollinisa tion appears to be good. In the earlier districts forced growth, to gether with t:he alternations of warm and cold spells have caused a cer tain amount of irregular pollinisa tion. The rainfall for October was 2.32 inches, there being 15 rainy days. The rains were in some instances accompanied by boisterous winds, and and parts of the oat crop. es pecially, were lodged. The earlier crops have straightened again, but there are some patches that will re main lod...

Nature's Provision. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 November 1915

Nature's Provision. Life was never meant to be hum- drum. Every labor has its reward, although it may sometimes be Iong in coming. There are many re- compenses for disappointments, and where the opportunity of improve- ment is offered, you should grasp it with both hands. Away here in the Mallee one is apt to think his lines cast in hard places, and yet, if we only look around, we find many opportunities offered await- ing the grasping to be a joy. As settlement grows, it is forced on people that it only needs a little exertion to make things worth while. It has already been proved that water in almost illimitable quantities exists underground in portions of the Mallee at least, and some of it is being used today. But there are more opportunities of making life worth while, only awaiting the helping hand of man. With water the wilderness may be made to blossom like a garden, and there are spots only awaiting the application of that water to make it simply a joy to be alive. Mur- ray...

That Flour Mill. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 1 December 1915

WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1, 1915. That Flour Mill. The farmers are waking up. The meeting on the 20th of last month showed an interest which speaks well for the future. The gathering of farmers was one which proved that shown the way, they will grasp the meaning. So long as only the one road was open, so long did the traffic flow that way. Now ancther is shown, and once the benefit of using it is proved, we may expect a rapid change. The old road never seemed to gain favor, but it had to be used because there was no other. The way to market has hitherto been per the agent. And just-here an experience of a few years ago' should be educational. The Rail ways Standing Committee was ta king evidence in a Wimmera centre on a projected line. A farmer in giving evidence, was asked by a member of the committee what the freight on his wheat was to Mel bourne. "I don't know. I don't pay it." "Indeed," queried the member. "Who does ?" "The agent pays that" was the astound ing answer given in all seriou...

Locral and General. There will be a sitting of the In solvency Court at Ouyen this morn ing at 10 o'clock. There is one case listed Speaking at the Ballarat city hall I recently, Mr. S. Mauger said, "If there is one thing I rejoice in, it is that the Prime Minister is going to mak the parasites disgorge." Mr. Mlauger was speaking of the large profits made by some people out of the workers. One merchant, he said, had told him that he made between ?4000 and 45000 out of matches. It was absolute robbery. This statement, we may add, was taken from the Ballarat "Courier" -a by no means Labor journal,and ought to set people thinking very hard. The Black Swamp storage at Ryan's Creek, having a capacity of 17,000 acre feet, is now nearing completion, and should be ready for filling next winter. Up to the present, the only headwork for the Wimmera waters has been Lake Lonsdale, and although this has been on the whole ample, it is felt that added storage is desirable. A further storage is to ...

The Wheat Question. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 1 December 1915

The Wheat Question. Farmers have been rushing the wheat in at a great rate during the past week. Millers have bought practically all offering at 4/6 on the trt'cks, ind just here, it seems rather an anomaly that wheat should be 5/ in LIelbourne, and 4/6 in the country, when the coun try m:iler has so much less freight to pay. But it is u-eless arguing that point to-day, as all wheat now goes into Government controi. Every load delivered now will be for at the uniform rate of 2/6 on the spot What the future may have in store no one can say for certainty, but from the very fact that millers were so anxious to buy at the outset, we take a hopeful view. Of course, it may be that they were anxious to replace the imported wheat with the local that is feasible-but they could have purchased their wants just as the wheat came at the Government price as easily. It certainly looks healthy, as these millers are usual ly far sighted, and the uniformity of pr ice is suggestive. A matter of commen...
