Federated! [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 February 1916

Federated! There were bright visions in the minds of the people when we pro claimed to the world that Australia intended to become one and indiv-i sible. Six colonies we were, but as Australia all :he dividing lines were to disappear. and excepting in some small minor details, we in tended to be one petple. with one flag, one destiny. That was the dream. But we have the awaken ing. Quite recently, the railwav was connected up between Murrayville and Pinnaroo. thus bringing all staticns from Ouyen westward, in much closer touch with Adelaide than Melbourne. Naturally people thot-ght they would be able to choose between the two ports for shipping their produce. But that would be too much like common sense. A local rate is charged on the connecting section, and this puts the freight up. At the No vember meeting of Walpeup shire council, it was decided to write the Victorian Railway Commissioners, and the South Australian Public Works department to see if this drawback could not be remo...

The Ouyen Mail. WEDNESDAY, FEB. 2, 1916. Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 February 1916

tWEENcESDAY, FEB. 2, 1916. Local and General. There are some mean people about. One night recently some contemptible individual went to the Co-operative Company's stack in the Ouyen Tailwav yard and cut one bag (presumably for fowls feed) and probably another sample of the genus sneak thief opened the corner of another bag. Leav ing out the theft of wheat, the danger of bringing down the whole stack was great. But some people ,would rob the grave of their grand father to save sixpence. included in the more rezent lists of casualities at the front appears the name of Pte. H. Waters, of Ouyen, who is reported ill. Pte. R. CulX.:an, previously reported seriously ill, has since dk:d. The following is the list of dona tions cf bags of wheat to the Dis trict Soldiers' Fund at Nunga: W. Puthie and T. Tonkin, 5 each;j C. Dt:nkley, R. Lockett, C. Dolan, Jas. M'Lean. sen. and Jas.

A Land Act Anomaly. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 February 1916

I Land iret a nomaly. At the meeting of the Walpeup Shire Council on Friday night, a Scircular was received from the Ou yen branch of the P.L.C. asking co-operation in an endeavor to have the Land Act amended, so as to remove an anomaly. The circulari Spointed out that the Act provides that people taking up land must comply with certain conditions re garding residence and improve ments before the necessary docu ments making the land a negoti able quantity are issued. The one exception is Crown allotments within a boundary. These are sold without any conditions, and -as a result, the growth of towns is r)etarded by speculators, and trouble given to valuers. It is proposed to ask that the Act be amended by making it compulsory on purcha Isers to erect residences, or effect equal improvements before the land Sbecomes a negotiable quantity. In moving that the council give its co-operation, Cr. Farreil said he was not a Laborite, but any good proposa!, no matter where it came from, shoul...

The Empire's Call. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 February 1916

The Empire's eall. Men, and more men. if we are to win, is the call. They are coming forward fairly well at this end, but thereare number.s who seem deaf. We have hitherto boasted of the splendid . response Walpeup shire has Inac:'. but it is , startling fact that of the hundreds who have gone less than a score of the sol diers are block holders-that is in the East Riding. Are you onu of those whose ties and responsibilities are not the reason against enlist ment? Think of it. Some 20,000 lie buried on Gallipoli or in the waters of its coast. Of these 5000 went from Australia to do their share and yours. Are you content that some families give all while you sit down and ponder? More than one farrily in this district has offered each of its sons, and they have been accepted. There are other families from which not one son of many has gone, and these have only their consciences to con sider. But the fact remains that unless we have German rule in Atus- I tralia, the men must go from h...

Over The Fence! [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 February 1916

Over The Fence! The following. taken from the birchip "Advertiser"'is timely, and following on the hints regarding the wheat scheme in our last issue, should cause some at least to pon der: "The ways of machinery firms are dark and mysterious, at least so sayeth the man who has tobuy and use machinery ! Recently it has frequently been brought under our notice that a certain machinery !firm has sent out 'Orders for the farmer to sign, giving the said firm preference at the various banks for the pavyment of any bills due on machinery purchased from them.' No thought is given to the store keeper, the butcher, the baker. or any other business man who has been responsible for keeping the farmer going with tucker clothes. etc , in order to carry on. No!

The Empire's Call. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 February 1916

The Empire's Call. Things are happening, and un less we misread the sigvs. bigger ones are to happen in the near fu iture. There is an appeal to those who care to hear. and all are not deaf There is inherent in every one who claims British blood, a feelinz that when ours are setting hurt we must go and help things out a bit. Well, ours are getting hurt just now, and we want you to realise it. The boys who have gone want help. They are having no picnic, and if you realise that, Snretmv it cannot !e nut to your shame that you let them get hit w-ithout raising a helping hand. The Hun is not beaten, or eve~n has had a taste of defeat yet. He tells the world that Britain is the stumbling block in the way of peace. And we feel proud to think such is the case. This is not a Ipart. But if a neace is patched up surh as Germany would like to see ijust now, so sure as the sun will Ishow his face above the horizon tomorrow, so sure will most of you live to regret the day.

A Non-Advisory Board. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 February 1916

A Non=ldvisory Board;. WValpeup shire councillors are suDposed to act as advisory boards in their re-pective ridings, in mat ters pertaining to water supply. For the past sev-en months.however no meetings ha'-e been held, and as a result, matters are not as satis factory as they might be. As the council meeting on Friday week, C1. Wiltshire spoke very in dignantly, saying the council should take a stand in regard to their position as advisory boards. Many months ago it was promised that tanks would be erected at var ious bores in the West Riding, and on that promise he had so advised the ratepayers. But that promise had never been fulfilled. and it see rred the Pr1trnfillA'e w1reP m1F: non pets. They should notdbow to such treatment, but either act as advis or)y boards or not at all. He moved that a letter be written to the S.R. ansud W.S.C. asking when a meeting is to be held, or if the advtsory committees have been abolished, as it is now some seven months since a meeting was held...

Egyptian Methods. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 February 1916

Egyptian Methods. Pte. WV. Wiltshire, writing from Egypt to his father says: I am glad to hear the crops are Iooking well but sorry to hear about the price of wheat and bags. I am surprised at wheat being so low, but not at bags being dear, because I have seen thousands of bales wait ing shipment at Alexandria for Gallipoli, and I suppose that is where most of the bags are going. All the trenches have sand bag pro tectors on them-even on the canal you can see them on trenches that are not used, and are not likely to be uscd. Harvesting in this coun try ( wheat, I mean) is just over. It is all irrigation, and they grow three crops on the ground each year, wheat, maize and clover. Wheat crops average about 60 bushels, maize about 100 bushels, and a fair amount of clover. A nigger who owns 10 acres here is a very veal thy man. Land is worth £80 an acre to buy freehold, but to rent it costs £7 an acre per year. The bag question does not trouble them because they have big bags which hold...

Agricultural Colleges. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 February 1916

Agricultural ollIeges. Mr. Pye, Principal of the Dookie Agricultural College, in his report for January, states that the rainfall for the month totalled 147 points, there being nine rainy days. The advantage of threshing over harves ting is manifes: on a large farm where the rearing of livestock is an important branch, otherwise occa stonaI droughts experienced would prove much more costly than they should. The straw stacks are an insurance against such periods; hence Mr. Pye believes in the use of the reaper and binder on farms where valuable livestock is kept, especially on land where the saffron thistle flourishes, unless checked I as they are more cheaply done by I cutting the crops as soon as ready. The Council's financial position made it expedient to put in large i areas of whea~t for grain last season but it is believed that a more limi .ted area could be set aside for seed and the balance sown with hay and i fodder crops to raise the livestock and dairy branches tr. a highe...
