HE PREFERS TO WIN HIS SPURS. .Mr. T. O'Brien, of the Commer cial Hotel, has received a letter from his son. Private T. O'Brien, written just as he was on the point of leaving the last port of call for the front. Private O'Brien was in great heart. -By the way, hj3 was elected to carry the flag m front of the regiment on its march through tbe city to the boat. The young soldier says he was offered a sergeant's commis sion, but refused the honor, de claring that he would net 'wear any stripes on his arm till he had fairly won them on the bat tlefield. He believes with the poet that 'honor and shame from no condition rise ; act well your part, .there all the honor lies.' Private O'Brien's action may seem rather quixotic to some people, but. behind it lies the true spirit of a soldier. Another heat wave is upon us.

FELL DOWN A WELL. MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 1 February 1916

FELL DOWN A WELL. MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. A lad named Michael Byrnes, 10 years of age, living at Bulga, a few, miles from Gilgandra, had a miraculous escape from death. He was engaged winding up water from a Well 50ft deep, and when the bucket ,had reached the top he tried to pull it over to the platform. He overbalanced and fell through the opening. He hung on to the rope and bucket on the way down. He was bum ped about on the side, and on rea ching the bottom got astride the bucket. His brother ,two years older, saw him overbalance and immediately rushed to the well and made great efforts to wind him up, but without success, as the bucket full of water with the boy on top was too heavy for him. He called for help. While this was coming the lad hung on to the windlass so as to keep his brother above wafer. On assis sistance arriving the boy was soon hauled out, suffering from terrible pain, and was cut about the lower portion of the body.
