Sergeant Coates, the recruiting' orator, though an importunate re cruiting agent, "sees not blindly:" He differentiates between the man who should and the man who should not. Whilst acting iu his capacity of Deputy Registrar-General, an of ficer of his department came and asked leave to go and enlist. "What," said Mr Coates, "you are a married man,'are you not?" "Yes," was the reply. "How" many child ren?" "Eight," said the officer. "Then go back to your work; don't thii^ik of leaving those eight little children. It would be suicidal." A few days after a military officer cause in and asked: "Is Larnont here? I want him as my warrant officer. He served with i;ue , before, and I must ,-have him.

WIMMERA PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915

An extract from the Commou wi-fil f.h Mfttf-wologisfc .report on con 'iitic'is .us at October ol gives- (he following summary of . Wimnisra prospects:—Almost throughout the Wimmera crop prospects were ex ceedinlgy good, especially in the"* south and west, though ether por tions, around Warracknabeal espe cially, were promising splendidly, in spite of a rainfall no better than that of the Mallee. In parts, however, it was not so, partial failure being threatened, the chief causes of which were probably weeds and "take-all." At Antwerp some crops were so poor and patchy as to be scarcely worth stripping. Grass was, of course abundant and stock doing tvell. —-Horsham "Times." H. J.

CARELESS USE OF FIRE [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915

CARELESS USB OF FIRE Just now with high winds and blister ing heat prevailing, the average indivi dual would believe that those in the country who have occasion to light out side fires would be careful to extinguish them when they are finished with them. Sucu, however, is not the case, as some very narrow escapes have occurred in this district. We would like to remind th^se forgetful ones that under the Fires Act in failing to extinguish outside fires when finished with them they arc liable to a penalty of £50. The police have re ceived instructions from headquarters to enforce the Act stringently, and they intend carrying out those instructions literally. In regard to the use of wax matches^their prohibition comes within the jurisdiction of the Shire Council. Wax matches, arc an ever present dan ger in the bush, especially in such a season as prevailing, so the Shire Coun cillors should awaken to the necessity of dealing with the matter.

EXCHANGES TE&CH-3BR Miss J. L. Greig, the young lady who superseded Miss Briggs at the local public school, is one of the teachers imported from the home lands in exchange for Australian teachers.

She lias been in Australia about IS months, and prior to coming to Gil gandra taught at the Camdenville and Staumore Public Schools. How ever, the young lady is evidently of a retiring nature as, notwithstand ing her Australian experience, she bashfully but firmly declined to ex press an opinion as to the compara tive values of the children of Aus tralia with those of the land o' cakes.

SUGGESTED ROUTE MARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915

SUGGESTED ROUTE MARCH. At a meeting of tlie Dnbbo Re cruiting Association, Mr T. A. Nich olas moved that a committee be ap pointed to make arrangements for a route march from Bourke to Dubbo Camp. He believed 100 recruits could be secured by such a march in January. The Chairman ruled the motion out of order pending a reply from the Premier in answer to the Dubbo suggestion of simultaneous short rou,te marches. Mr Utley, who has just returned from a trip to Melbourne, said that he had heard everywhere that there would be a big boom in recruiting after harvest. The harvest, was a record one;—mag nificent crops evei^y where, and the farmers all needed the assistance of their sons to gather it in. He. sug gested that this fact might be point ed out to headquarters.
