Northern Water System HOLLAND'S EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 11 January 1916
Nurthern Water System HOLLAND'S EXAMPLE. If a proposal of the Water Com mission for a more extensive use of windmills is carried out, some of the Northern settlements may in time bear resemblance to certain parts of Holland. About 12 months ago the Water Commission prepared a now scheme for the supply of Donald, and the experience of last year has proved it to be of the utmost value. A feature of the scheme is the ex tended use made of wind power to lift water. The success of .the "mill" power iu this instance is so marked a* to lead to serious consideration being given by the Commission to the introduction of windmills in all such cases where local conditions are favorable. The chairman of the commission (Mr C ittanach) states that although there is no intention to emulate Holland in this respect, it is believed that a much more extensive use can be made with gr^at advantage of wind power, which seems always available iu the NurLh.

A AIIvRCJlIjJjvSS JUDG-b ! A merciless judge is Father Timo. be fore hiui the weak and the wanting go to the wall. Only the truth can stand. l7or fifteen years the following statement from a St Arnaud resident lias withstood this sternest of all tests. Mr John Undy, Butcher Street, St Aruaud, says :—"iUy wife took Doau's Backache Kidney Pills for kidney com plaint, and gained remarkable benefit from their use. She had been using a great number of remedies, and finding they did her no good, she became diskeart ened, and no wonder. She was in great pain, tlie ache in her back and shoulders being especially severe, rendering her totally unfit to do lier housework It was only with great difficulty that she could stand up straight. Her kidneys were ex tremely weak, and unhealthy, and this was as bad as the backache. I procured Doau's Backache Kidney Pills, and got her to take them, feeling sure that if there was anything in a name they would do her good. And thoy did do her good, more th...

ROYAL ALFRED HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 11 January 1916
ROYAL ALFRED HOMES. Sir,—When one considers the tru ly great and heroic part British mer chant seamed are taking in the war, their claim upon the generous con sideration of all is unquestionably established. That one of these brave fellows should stand in need of a helping hand when forced by age or affliction to abandon the sea would be, one ventures to affirm, an ingra titude to those to whom, as a body, Britain owes her commercial pros perity, and to whom to a degree most apparent of late she is indebted for the very daily necessaries of life. At one time it could be truly said that Britain was the only &reat ma ritime nation without a provision for its merchant seamen, but with the establishment of the Royal A1 fred Institution that stigma was re moved, and for half a century this great national charity has provided a home or pension for thousands of aged and destitute seamen of the British mercantile marine. lyike many other old established institu tions the Royal Alfre...

AN INTERESTING VISITOR [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 January 1916
AN INTERESTING VISITOR Sir H. Rider Haggard will tour the Commonwealth at au early dale ;o enquire into conditions for immi gration at the conclusion of the war, and,-as he-proposes to visit'the large wheat growing- districts, no doubt the Wimmera will be included in the programme. Sir Rider Hag gard is a most interesting personali ty. As a cultured man of letters, aud au eminent novelist, he requires no introduction to Victorians. Who amongst us has not read some, if not all, of the fascinating romances which transport us back to Greece and Kgypt in the Homeric age, to Spain aud the Inquisition, to Rome and her provinces in the days, of the empire, to Mexico when the Aztecs fell before the Couquistadore^ ? Who does not know "She" ? N >t the everyday she, or tha suffragette she, but Sir Ridar Higgard's parti cular "She."

FIRE AT WARMUR. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 January 1916
FIRE AT WARMUR. Duriug^last Wednesday's storm the lightening struck a stook oa the farm of Mr J. T. Lilb'.irne, at War mur West;-' aud ignited it. The flame was noticed by Mrs E. Smith, who gave the alarm. The employees immediately rushei to the spot in order to beat out the flames, but had it not been fora timely rainfall the fire must have assuredly spreal throughout the paddock. Whett il is considered that there was abou 400 tons of hay in stooks,. and ovet 3000 bags of wheat standing in the stubble in the paddock and those adjoining, it must be admitted that thertimely warning • and the helpful rain proved a boon to the farmers in the immediate district. We have had some narrow escapes of fire in this district, and one aud, all will be pleased when the wheat is carted in for railage to the various ports. Practically the whole of the crops iu the vicinity of Mr Lilburne's pro perty were insurei, and the com panies interested have much to b; thankful for, knowing, as they do. that...
