"Follow The King." [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 18 August 1915

"Follow The i'in~g." "Etarepmet" has a final word, and as this correspondence has gone on at some length without either party being of altered mind, we now close it down :--"Sir.-As a final word on tlis subject, I wish to say that it pains me to see one of Mr. Castles' standing having such disregard for words. His re ply to my last letter is even more cruel than his former ones. Why should he stoop to use such langu age as when he brings into play the word "booze." Surely he must see that, on his calculations, all! who touch strong drink are "booz ers." Now is this fair? It is equally as intemperate as his other utterances. Mr. Castles no doubt means well, but his utterances are those of one who has allowed his zeal in a cause to get the better of his judgment. I will be always with him in trying to lessen the drinking habit. Gentle persuasion and good example I will always try, but prejudiced utterances I will never resort to.'"

Home Defence. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 18 August 1915

-. Rome 1)efence. . At. the: public meetipg called to consider the question of recruiting. the matter of f6rrning a body to drill and i-arn to shoot, was inoo& ed. After considerable discussion, it was decided to hand the matter over to the Rifle Club. That was done, and for a brief space, the en thusiasm was considerable. But, as is too often the case, the enthn siasm, waned, and on Thursday night last, only four attended at the public hail for drill., This shows that something is lacking. Various causes are put forward for the failure of the scheme, and it is not worth while discussing them here. But something in this dired tion is needed. The war is appa r ently a long way off the end yet, despite the Kaiser's promise that it will be brought to a close in Oc tober. The arch promiser is a fail ure at guessing,and within thenext few months, the Allies will be call ing up every available man. Here in Australia, camps are being for med all over the country, proving unmistakab...

Important Deputation. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 18 August 1915

Important Deputation. Anyone who had experience knows the difficulty in getting a definite answer from any Govern ment department, or even a Minis ter. So far as the latter is con cerned, he is mostly a victim of circumstance and circumlocution The routine of office is so cast iron that nothing save an explosion is likelv to shift it And we mistake It an explosion is not prabable today or tomorrow, in some depart ments at least. At thesopecial meeting of the Walpeup shire con?cii last week, Crs. Wiltslire and Pickering were deputed to go to Melbourne and personally see into some matters which have been written about so often as to con siderably raise the postal revenue, but have no other effect. One of these is the important one of urain sacks and their price. It is stated that the Government has so far unbent as to allow the liability in curred in the purchase of bags to take precedence over the Govern ment lien. That such a glimmer of business methods should be shown is in itself ...

Thankful Belgian Girl. WRITES TOUCHIING LETTER Joy has been brought to a poor Belgian family by a parcel of clo thing sent by a girl scholar at the Central State school, Williamstown. The gift is acknowledged in a touching letter which has just been received by the sender of the par cel. Last Christmas the pupils at the school forwarded a quantity of clo thing for Belgianchildren. Oneof the pupils, Rose Dunn, enclosed a ote with her parcel, and by the last English mail received a letter from a Belgian girl. It was writ ten from Westoleteren in May last, et:d is as foliows: Dear Rose Dunn.-We thank you with all our hearts for all the good things you have sent to us. Very ulad were we, when standing ar ound our mother, we saw her open this packet, and drawing out every kind of clothes for my small bro thers, sisters and myself, who am the eldest of seven children. But we were happier enough when we were finding your letter concealed deep in the pockets, and reading that you are so pit...

Local And General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 18 August 1915

Local And General. Proceedings at the Ouyen police court on Wednesday last were brief. Messrs Elligett, P.M., and Cooper. J.P., occupied the bench E. H. Smith (Holden) got a ver- dict for £4 10/, with 13/ costs   against Silvio Holland. C. Clif- ford was fined 2/6, and I. A. Ross and Jas. Ross 3/ each for failing to get their names on the Common Wealth electoral rolls. This ended the work for the day. In one respect Ouyen is behind other towns, and that is in regard to universal observance of dinner hour by the business people. In numbers of places now, the whole of the stores close for an hour in the middle of the day, and no one is a whit the worse. What it means to both employer and em- ploye, to say nothing of the busy housewife requires very little con- sideration to decide. It requires that the Traders Association make a move and we are quite satisfied a mutual arrangement would be ar- rived at. It doesn't concern us we always take the hour, no mat- ter what day i...

Seed Wheat Rebates. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915

Seed 'Wheat Rebates, "For deeds that are dark and ways that are strange the Heathe~ Chinee is peculiar." You've heard that before, and if you just alter the Heathen Chinee to our adminis trators, you will get near the mark. It will be remembered that at the meeting reported in our last issue, the matter of the rebate on seed wheat came up. Mention was then made. that any farmer who bought on a Government order was entitled! to the rebate, which is something over 2/ per bushel. It was further stated that anyone who paid cash to the Government or outsider, would get no rebate. This was so startling as to cause doubt, for no one could imagine thI.tt the powers that be would be sboo iilcaI, riotto put it in a harsher term. Andyet; that is the actual 'fact: The secre of the Agricultural--S6ietv, iin. ae cordance with: instructi~ons, wrote to the Hon.-. John Gray MIl:A, putting the.questions <to him very plainly, and below is the answer. The preseth Gobvetnmeint: hias been guil...

The War. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915

The War. A crushing blow -tt the German Navy has been stru :k by Russia. According to a witre vhich reached Onyen on Monday, an engagement in the Gulf of Riga resulted in the sinking of a German super Dread nought, three cruisers, and seven ! torpedo boat destroyers. This will compensate the Russians somewhat for their land defeat, and make Ad'miral von Tirpitz think pretty hard.

Galah Greetings. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915

Galah °reeting~s. There was a good attendance at 'he usual meeting of the G!arla Progress Association on Saturday' night. Mr. Le Couteur presiding: In view of the fact that the Wvrn let 'country is at present clothed with splendid grass, it was decided on the motion of Messrs. M'Far lane and Smith, to ask the S.R. and TXV.S C. to put down a tank in that localitfy. This country, if watered, would relieve numbers of farmers of the necessity of.putting stock on the crops, and the re quest is a reasonable one. The Mallee Land Act now makes; the makes the maximum holding of first-class land 1000 acres. This is not considered sufficient, and all Progress Associations in the Shire of WalpFeup will be asked to urge an amendment allowing 1280 acres to be held. The electiori of office bearers for the forthcoming year resulted as follows :-President,. Mr. Jas. Hoist; vice-presiaent, lMr. A, M'Farlane; secretary, Mir. D. T. Guiney ; treasurer, Mr. Geo. Nimmo.

From The Front. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915

From The Front. ------10---- Sergt. A. Glen writes his mother from the base hospital at Lemnos: -It's not bad to be in the firing line; one's blood gets up, and it is just like shooting ducks when they are plentiful. It is good sport and fun, but very cruel when all is said and done. The first few days were pretty solid going, but one soon gets used to it-like a duck to wa ter. We were all anxious to get to it, and we got what we looked for alright. The landing was started on Sunday morning at 4 a.m.; we landed on Monday about 8 a.m., and whi'e going ashore -in the small boats learned to duck from shrapnel. Tuesday night into the thick of it, and kept going till Saturday night, when we were re lieved for one night. We went up Sunday to the right of where we left, known as Courtney's Post (the one we left was Quinn's Post). We had to dig for about a week before we were comfortable. I have found out that the shovel is more used in this war than the rifle, but when the rifles speak the...

arararp Carols. A well-attended meeting of the Progress Association was held on Saturday, 14th inst., the president, Mr. P. G. Stewart, occupying the chair. - Mildura shire council stated every assistance would be given the as sociation in its effort to obtain a crossing at the north eil2 of the railway station. This action on the part of the council is much ap preciated. Mir. J. R. Brown sent a written report of his recent interview with the Railway Commissioners. He asked first that a croSsing be put in at the north end of the station, and knowing full well the inconvenience a lot of settlers are put to, tried very hard to get this. Next, a passenger platform and shelter shed; extension of the loop line for load ing trucks, a goods platform, and a gate leading from the platform to the post office. Mr. Brown point ed out, to the evident surprise of the Commissioners, that there are about 8000 acres under crop this year which will use Carwarp as a despatching station. The Commission...

Rre You Ready To Go? Are you ready to go, at your coun try's call, Are von ready to fight, my lad? Though the work be great and the task appal, Give it your best,aye give it yourall If need be, when things are bad. Are you able and willing and ready to strike, Are you fit for a smashing blow At the tyrant Black, whose law is might, Who honors the wrong, who sneers at the right Though the blood of the innocents flew?

Let the heart beat true in yo'.r manly frame To the heroes who fought and died; Conscience demands you should play the game, Out of of your substance, muscle. and brain To stem the blood red tide. Then be ready the vo;ce of your God to obey (Tho' hell with its thunder roar), To hasten theglad,the glorious day, When the Sceptre of peace alone shall sway And nations war shall ...
