No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 March 1915
THE deplorable inadequacy of the rainfall in Australia threatens to depopulate the continent. Mr. Goy der, of South Australia, appears to have understood this fact, as we used to hear of Goyder's line of rainfall. Now Mr. Wragge is the only guide who gives us any informa tion as to the progress of rainstorms. He used to tell us of their advent and progress across the continent, or disappearance to Tasmania or to New Zealand. He ought, to be Commonwealth Meteorologist; but, like all men of marked individuality, he has enemies. That accounts for Mr. King O'Magey, having been shunted. If it had not been for his Commonwealth note issue the whole Government would have been without till money. Some compe tent historian will do him justice; the present generation will not. The "Express" will be published on Thursday next week, on account of Easter. Correspondents and others will please send in their let ters earlier than. usual. Messrs. McPhail Bros. & Co. will not hold their usual...

APPEAL FOR OUR SOLDIERS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 March 1915
APPEAL FOR OUR SOLDIERS. To the Editor of the ..Express. Dear Sir,--I should,.like: to ap peal to your lady readers for as sistance for the Red :,Cross. In an interview last week with Mr. Towns, Secretary for Red Cross Work, Federal Government House, he assured me that if we (the Brit ish and our Allies) are to be the victors, it is most essential that work be done for the Red Cross, as it is only by the sick and wounded being properly cared for that they are again able to go to the fighting line. He also informed me' that warm garments and woollen com forts were still needed, but the most essential thing of all was plenty of socks. Many women in this dis trict may be able to knit at home, and yet unable to attend sewing meetings., Might I ask those who can if they will assist in this great work. Our soldiers, who- so bravely shoulder our responsibilities, deserve that at least we, as women, should do the utmost that lies in our power for their comfort. Trusting all will ,help in. t...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Trooper W. Vallence: Mena, Feb. 21st. 'We get plenty of work to do, as we go out every day, doing outpost and patrol duty, also route marching over the roads along the Nile'; also- trained in Cav alry formations to resist Cavalry charges. We, do a lot of field firing, with the live cartridges, at heads and shoulders posted on the sand ridges. We gallop into action, and open fire on them. From the time the Officer gives the signal to dis mount, until the first shot is fired, it only takes us 43 seconds, which the Colonel thinks is a record. C. Squadron is the best: in the 4th L.H.R., and the Officers all say we are the best L.H. Reg. in Egypt. The reinforcements have joined us. Charlie Crook is in my Squadron. He was pleased to get in with the Marsh boys. He is a Trumpeter. We are full up of Egypt. It is getting hot, and we are sick of looking at the dirty natives. I think they must be the dirtiest race of people on earth, and born "cad gers." Every one ...
