Until the list closes on January 31st all persons who care to do so — and they should be many—have the right to assist the country aud our soldiers by subscribing to the second issue of the Commonwealth war loan, which has been nominally fixed at ,£10,000,000. The coudi I tions of the loan are well known, I the nominal rate of interest being per cent, but owing to the terms ou which the loan is issued, the ac tual rate earued is approximately \ 14s per cent, and the interest is free of taxation, which is a conside rable item in these times. But there are far higher considerations to be to be taken into account than the value of the investment. It is every one's duty to contribute to assist in waging the greatest war which the world lias ever seen, and in which our empire is vitally threatened, and moreover, it is not a w...

Local and Gsneral News. Mr J. B. Tonkin, juu., of Mount •leffcott, is securing au average of 10 bushels per acre. A correspondent suggests that the name of the Donald Park should be change! to Anzic Park in honor of the local soldiers who fought in the Gallipoli campaigu. The Blantyre listate, near Bii" chip, comprises some 2500 acres and the soil, mostly chocolate, is very fertile, and is capable of grow ing up to 10 bags of wheat per acre in good seasons. In the Romau Citholic Church at St Arnaud on Sunday last, the Rev. Father O'Rourke asked the people to pray daily for the Austra lians who were giving up their lives for the defence of their country. Mr J. Caiue, who, with the late Lieutenant A. B. Glassou, has con ducted the Warrackuabeal Post since its inauguration, has disposed of that journal to Messrs Rushbury, Douohue & Reid.

Epistles to the Editor. THE WAR LOAN. The liou. W. G. Higgs writes : — I As Treasurer of the Comwomvealth fl respectfully invite your readers to subscribe to the Commonwealth war loan of ,£10,000,030. Australia re quires this sum—and a great deal more—to enable the Government to pay for the equipment aud trans port. and maintenance of 300,000 gallant soldiers, who freely risk their lives for the defence of our hearths, homes, and country. Up to the present, and since the never to-be-forgotten April -'5,1915, when our trooos stormed the heights of Gallipoli, our casualties uumb;r 35,500 killed, wounded, ill, missing or prisoners of war. The duty of every citizen in this great crisis is to do everything within his power to prevent his country passing under the yoke of German mili'arism, and I therfore urge them to lend the Government which represents their country—the laud of their birth or adoption—the land they live in—is much money as they can.

The Wheat Scheme. WEIGHBRIDGE CHARGES. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 January 1916

The Wfieat Scheme. WEIGHBRIDGE CHARGES, i The question of the payment of weighbridge charges on wheat has now bsen definitely settled. There was some doubt as to. whether the farmer or the. agent was responsible, but a letter received last week by Cr J. Mcliwen of Cherrup, from the Rev C. W. Wood, President of the Cham ber-of Agriculture, and a member of the Wheat Committee, clears up the issue. Mr Wood States that it has been definitely decided that the ag ents are to pay the .weighbridge charges, and he adds :—"If any of the farmers in your locality have delivered wheat and paid the weigh bridge charges, I would suggest that they ask the agent for a refuud." . Mr C D. Graham secretary 'of the Gordon Shire, wrote as follows to the Minister of Agriculture, Mr Hagelthorn, on the. same question —"In .the report of the Rev: Wood's speech at Charlton and Donald on the wheat pool, lie stated that weighbridge fees would be paid by the agents out of their allowance.

A CASE FOR ENQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 January 1916

A CASK FOR ENQUIRY. There is probably no young rnau iu the whole of the Commonwealth more anxious to do his share in ad vancing the cause of the Allies than William John Franklin, of Carron. He has given ample evideuce of his loyalty aud patriotism, but, though he has utidergoue operations to re move defections, and is considered physically fit by Melbourne medicos, Mr Franklin does not appear favor able in tlie eyes of DrTliompsou, of Castlemaine. Mr Franklin has un doubtedly a grievance to ventilate, and it should receive the immediate attention of the Minister for Defence —if that worthy gentleman wishes the recruiting campaign to be a complete s lccess. Mr Franklin has supplied tlie editor of this journal with particulars of his case, aud we leave the public to decide whether the Carron recruit has beeu justly dealt with. We will, however, suggest that Mr S- Sampson, M,P., take the matter in hand, for we have yet to learn that the opinion of a provincial man of medicine is abso ...

A Worthy Suggestion AMBULANCE FOR DONALD. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 January 1916

A Worthy Suggestion AMBULANCE TOR DONALD, A worthy suggestion ' has bleu made by one of our townsmen to the effect tb.it an. endeavor should be nude to secure an ambulance for; th2 use of the. people of the town and district. The suggestion has been referred to other ^townsmen, who have become interested in the matter, and in all probability a meeting will shortly be .called to discuss the suggestion. The ambu lance would be procurable for ,£70 or ^S0, and to the general public would be of incalculable va'lu?, as a great number of accidents happen annually in the district. The am bulance could also be utilised for maternity cases, and would thus'be a boon to wives residing in the country, and at a distance from the private hospitals. It is suggested that the amount required be raised by public conscription, and by the holding of open air entertainments at Donald Park. Th^ suggestion is a good one, and the public should accord the movement all the sup-, port possible.

DISCIPLES OF WALTON. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 January 1916

DISCIPLES OF WALTON. Strauge though it may seeui, the more devoted disciples of Izaac Walton do not bother to ply their calling when fish are plentiful, and | everybody is catching them. It is when the members of the finny tribe are most elusive that the ex pert angler tries his luck or exer cises bis skill. The recent drought depleted the natural streams and artificial storages considerably, and the bulk, of the fish perished. In spite of this fact, and well knowing that record hauls were out of the question, a number of local anglers visited the Richardson,• Avou, and Avoca, and got what they expected ^ —a few nibbles and fewer bites. One party, in is said, secured a very fair haul, but we have become so accustomed to fish lore that seeing only is believing. We tell fish yarns ourselves sometimes ; hence our scepticism ! Private Sam Torney, Whose mother resides at Donald, is pro gressing favorably from his wounds recently rccrivwl at Oallipnli.
