CORRESPONDENCE. THE SECOND BOMB AMONG THE FARMERS . (To the Editor.) Sir,—About 15 months ago our State Government fired the first by seizing wheat at Darling Island at 4/2 per bushel when the market price was 5/2.

A SHIRE CLERK WHO ENLISTED [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 12 November 1915
A SHIRE CLERK WHO EN LISTED In some of the little towns like Grilgaudra and Duuedoo the response to tbe recruiting call has been splen did (says the Herald.") It is. backed by a spirit of earnestness and sacrifice. Mr Smith, the shire clerk of Cobbora Shire (Geurie), has en j listed, and the Council had. to decide what provision would be made for | his family. The Council was in the i dilemma of wanting to deal gener ! ously by the clerk and justly to the I ratepayers. Einally it was decided to supplement the military pay by 30/ a week. One of the councillors offered, if the clerk would remain, to volunteer in his place. A number of other shire and town clerks have vo lunteered. The effect of these en listments is most valuable. When men in a district holding comfortable and responsible public positions give up their advantages to shoulder a gun, it sets an example which is widely followed. In these cases the councils all take the view that no ratepayer will grndg'e the payment of s...

EARLY POISON GAS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 12 November 1915
EARLY POM GAS. The earliest use of deleterioas gases in ciege warfare is recorded in the history of the Pelopoimesian wars from 431 to 404 B.C, During- this struggle betweeu the Athenians and Spartans and their respective allies the citizens of Platea and Delium | were beseiged. Wood saturated ! with pitch and sulphur was. set on fire and burnt under the" walls of these cities, in order to generate choking and poisonous; James, which would stapify the defenders and render the task of. the attacking forces less difficult. Another form of the same method of attack used aboat this date was to fill a cauldron with molten, pitch, sulphur, and burning charcoal, and to blow the fames, with the aid of a primitive form of bellows and air blast over the defenders' liues. Greek fire, abont which much was heari in the wars of the middle ages, was a liquid, the composition of which is now unknown, that was squirted through the air, and was used for setting fire to the buildings or places attacke...
