GENERAL BIRDWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

—» — Our wouuded' men now in London speak in the most affectionate terms of General Birdwood, who seems to have identified himself heart and sour with his Australian soldiers. Dressed just like the men, he tramps about the trenches, encouraging and directing them. One boy was firing away at the Turks when someone touched him on the shoulder. "Here, go to blazes!" he exclaimed impati ently, and looking round discovered to his dismay, that he was addressing the General. "It's all right, my fooy," said the latter, patting him on the shoulder, "but let's have a go at them, will you?" And he took the private's gnn for a turn.

NEXT WINTER'S MEAT. LONG TIME BEFORE PRICES TUMBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

HEXT WINTER'S MEAT. ———♦ LONG TIME BEFORE PRICES TUMBLE. Mr Tudor, meat prophet, says "Look out for next winter." fIt was urged on Wednesday by a deputation which, waited upon the Minister for Customs, representative of the Goulburn Yalley Industries Co-operative Co., that the embargo on the export of lamb should be re moved. Mr Tudor said that the Imperial Government was offeriu j 5 5-8d per lb. for good average quality lamb, and 5|-d for other grades in Victoria. If meat exporters would sell the j meat here wholesale at those prices it would be a fair thing ; but he would not be a party to allow the exportation of meat for higher prices elsewhere, thus creating an artificial shortage in Australia and forcing local prices. He considered there would be a shortage of meat in Aus tralia next winter, and that it would be a very ldag time before prices went back to normal.

COMMON SENSE [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

Here is a chunk of common .sense called from it recent report of Rab bit Inspector P. J. Kiley, of the Singleton P.P. Board:—"I. have been informed that a number of men from the mines were in the habit of spending their week-ends in the dis trict rabbit-shooting, and thereby accounting for a lot of rabbits on re serves and other places that other wise would not be touched, but that he police had interfered and warned che.tn against shooting on Sunday. I contend that these men are doing a lot of good, and very little harm, and .I ask the board to try and get permission for them to resume their shooting excursions. I believe that,, as a number of them rely on the rab bits they shot for their , week's supply of meat, they would be only too pleased to come back were permis sion granted them to .shoot on Sun day." The president (Mr W . G. Roberts), said the men shooting rabbits on Sundays did much less harm thaa hanging about the hotels. He thought the police might well take no notice of...
