An Old Pest. The ravages of the RuthO fruit fly, a native pest, which deserted its natural food to at fruits, crops, vegetables and £ den plants of all description, ~ matter of serious concern to i ers and orchadists throughout? State at present. So widesprr the destruction being caused this insect that the Goverr. Entomologist has addressed to T Minister of Agriculture a spN memorandum, enclosing a pazj let which he asks should be c'." lated among orchadists and fL ers. This document recomin spraying infected plants with? zole emulsion and coal tar kill off the pest.

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 12 January 1916
THE WAR. Russia continues an active offen sive in Bessarabia, and Count Re ventiow, an inspired German wri ter says that if it succeeds, Ru mania and Greece will join the Allies. in connection with the above, an Austrian report is sidnificant. This claims that the Russians lost 50,000 in one battle in Bessarabia. Fi gures, if proved, are impressive, biut if one of the cyphers is clipped off, the balance may be somewhere near the mark. In the attack on Czernowitz, the Russians have concentrated no few er than 400 big guns, and if you have ever heard one of the guns, you may imagine the row made by these 400. to say nothing of the damage done. The enemy is making big prepa rations for an attack on Salonika. and we may expect to hear news of this scrap soon. For the attack on Egypt Ger many is pushing on. It is claimed that water in copious quantities has been found at Mount Sinai, and this will help the invaders-if true - -out oe a big thing for Britain af ter the war. On the Western ...

Enlistment Cards. FILLING IN ORLIGATORY. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 12 January 1916
Enlistment eards. FILLING IN OBLIGATORY. Reports of various meetings that have decided to ignore enlistment cards have been brought under no tice of the Prime Minister. Mr. Hughes said these meetings were ill-advised and calculated to prejudice recruiting and in this manner endanger the welfare of the country. It is obligatory on every male to fill in tards and answer all questions put by the authorities. In order to meet objections raised against sending filled up cards to local councils, it had been decided that option would be given of re turning them either to local coun cils or the war committee. The Minister reiterated his pre vious statement that there must he no paltering with the questions and filled in cardsrmust be returned by all to whom they were addressed otherwise penalty conditions under the War Census Act would be im posed.
The Ouyen Mail. WEDNESDAY, JAN. 12. 1916. Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 12 January 1916
WEDNESDAY. JAN. 12, 1916. Local and General. Judging by the weather during the latter part of last week, with the culminating point on Saturday, we may consider that summer is duly here. The thermometer grad nally crawled higher in its readings until the day mentioned, when reasonable readings made it 11.3 in the shade. The usual break came in the shape of a threatened thun derstorm, very light sprinkles of rain, and uense clouds of dust. Sunday proved more bearable but still the fallowed paddocks kept! shifting. February has still to bei zegotiated. The wheat market continues to gladden the hearts of farmers. Sales are taking place with great frequency, and each one is at least equal to the last, and mostly better. Last Friday the Govern?ment sold a parcel at equal to just on 6/ a bus hel f.o.b. Melbourne. May it keep up, as -we hnave every reason to be lieve it will. The attention of members of On yen Branch of the P.L.C. is drawn to the notification of an important meeting at the...
Timberoo Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 12 January 1916
Timberoo Topics. On Christmas Eve the children of Timberoo school had a "night out." Through the generosity of the committee and the parents, a heavily laden Christmas Tree, beautifully decorated, greeted the children on their arrival at the school, and the treasures displayed were the joy of the young eyes. A program of song and recitations and an exhibition of first aid were creditably carried out by the child ren, and then the Head Teacher, Mr. Anderson, presented prizes won during the year. These were: Best home work book Gladys Pianta, grade iii; best work book Hilda Fox, grade vi; best map Mary Englefield, grade vi; best arithmetic scholar William Scott, grade v. A prize was also presen- ted to each pupil in grades i and ii. The children then sang a song de- scribing a visit from Santa Claus, after which they went to sleep,and were surprised on awakening to find that Santa Claus had really fa vored them with a visit. There he stood on the stage beside the tree, bowing and smil...

A general meeting of the com mittee and members of the Galah Mechanics' Institute and Free Li- brary and others interested was held in the Galah Hall on Satur- day night, Mr. John Black presid- ing. It was decided to run a Pic- nic Sports Meeting under rule 53 V.R.C., on 16th February, in aid of the Ouyen District Hospital and Galah Hall funds.

The War. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 19 January 1916
The War. Evidently the overwvhelming of Montenegro, with the fall of Mount Lovchen, has greatly stirred Italy. It is reported that King-Victor Emanuel has returned from the front to Rome to consult with the .Montenegrin heir-apparent on the subject of Italian assistance for. both Montenegro and Serbia. There are indications that Italy has been roused to make even grea ter efforts in the ccmmon cause of the Allies. London newspapers on Saturday referred to the possibility of conx plications with the United States regarding our naval blockade of Germany. MIany of them are ap prehensive that President Woodrow W?ilson will consent to interfere on behalf of Germany in return for the abandonment of the submarine warfare against merchantmen. In several cases the comments are very pointed. The demand of the Lon don press for increased rigour in the blockade is daily growing stronger. Correspondents at Salonika agree in stating that the Allied forces are being constantly strengthened. The re...

The Wheat Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 19 January 1916
The Wheat Schemie. :I In a new thing there are bound to be difficiulties make themselves Sapparent. The wheat pooling scheme is absolutely the best thing i that ever came about in the farm ers' interests, if they will only take it to heart,. but there rare little troubles which require overcoming' As these crop up, the committee Stackle and settle them more or less s'tisfactorily as the case may be. I The question as to who should I pay the weighbridge charges, the Sfarmer or the agent, was a prob i lem, but it has been settled. The Wheat Committee has ordered that the weighbridge charge must be paid by the agents out of the al lowance for charges. This is one [of the matters which has not caused 'any discussion at Ouyen, as the agents have paid the charge all Salong, but there may be other cen tres at which the question has caused friction, and thus the settle ment should be satisfactory, to the farmer, anyhow. Another question may not seem. so satisfactory in the decision. When th...

Australia Teaching America. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 19 January 1916
Aoustralia. Teaching· america. It does not seem so very long ago that much that was done in Australia was based on American method and example. The war has changed all that. In the present time of vigorous recruiting it is per tinent to make the following ex tracts from an influential magazine How the war has caused Australia to bulk largely in the American eye is indicated in the following: "In Germany militarism. has beei superimposed on a theory of national defence which is thorough ly democratrc . The German armed force, as. do. the armies of Switzer land and Australia. comes directly from the citizen ship Australia, after repeated experiments, and af ter years of endeavor to find some avenue to adequate defence, other than compulsory service, has adop ted univer-sal training laws.
