THE ROYAL HOTEL. EXTENSIVE ADDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

THE • EXTENSIVE ADDITION'S. 'When the renovations and acldit-,, ions, being made to the .Royal Hotel, G-ilgandra, are completed, the place will be truly royal in appearance aiid appointments. Giigandra is a town that knows not retrogression, bat is always charged with that laudable impulse to attain better tbiugs. It is this "excLsior" kind of spirit, that has impelled Mrs Cnrraii to add to the achit.ectaral beauty and importance of the town, and when the building scheme at present iu view is carried out the house will be almost three times as largo as at pre sent. The additions at present being tree led have a, frontage to Bridge Street of lO-ifr, and a depth of 45ft, and will cost in the vicinity of £4,000.

PATTERSON'S CURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

| At a meeting of the Bathurst P.Pi. I Board, the rabbit inspector submit— I ted a Report' concerning the weed I known ns Patterson's Cnrse, and I raised the question as to whether it a was as viihi'-'less as hitherto suppos I ed. A Lrgu patch of it growing near 1 The Rock Forest Station sheep yards I was, he said, kept' close-cropped by | the sheep and horses, and before the I spring grass and herbage appeared* I in the spot afforded a camping ground | for the animals, which would not | leave it. Other patches inaccessible 1 to the sheep and horses had obtained | a good growth, and the -weed was I out in flower. The partiality of the I stock in this instance made it appear that the weed was edible in a bad !■ time, a nil also that it grew in ad vance of the herbage and other veg etation—two valuable recommen | dations for the "curse," if they could | be substantiated by the experience I of others. The inspector surmised that the weed, which is plentiful in some parts of the State, ...

SEND-OFF. TO PRIVATE A. HOWLETT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

TO PRIVATE A. HOWLETT. " Crod-speed " to soldiers have been often and many in Gilgandra, for the sons of tlie town and district have not only recognised their liabil- j ity, but have enthusiastically rushed i to Gallipoli to spoage them off the slate. Gilgandra can say -without egotism that it has supplied the Em pire with men, more men, and still more to cotne. One of the latest to receive an official and public speeding •was Private A. Howlett, son of Mrs; Howlett, of - Gilgandra, who is the fifth boy of the family to take up arms. The.function which was held on Thursday night was fairly "well attended, and the guest's mother, who was present, irridiated pride of her soklier boy. The evening was devoted to dancing, which proved very enjoyable. During an interval, Mr Fitzhardinge, on behalf of the Recruiting , Association, presented Private Howlett with a case of pipes. In. doing so he emphasised the urgent need of reinforcing the brave lads at the front, and ' paid a ■ special tri...

DR. BROPHY DEFENDS THE IRISH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

DR. BROPHY DEFENDS THE IRISH. * ' :— Rev. Dr. J. J.' Brophy, parish, priest of Dubbo, writes as follows :—■ The last issae of yocir esteemed paper contained a paragraph, based on a recent cablegram, which requires a little elucidation. The "Irish Times " has been rightly castigating Irish, shirkers in certain counties, whom it describes as being of the roving, un settled class, and adds that 1400 were booked for American ports dar ing the coming fortnight. This nam vber is,"lower than the average migra tion during a like period, for, say, the last five or ten yea,vs. The "Irish Times" is oue of the most intolerant of newspapers where Irish Nationalists are concerned. The number of Irishmen serving in the army is now over 400,000, or about one in ten of the population — the meaning t of which can only be appreci ated when one recalls how the coun try has been drained by emigration of those of militaiy age, viz, young men in the twenties and early thir ties. If the London Press is to ...

A SLOW RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

\ A SLOW MCE Writing recently from Gaba Te peth in connection witli the ballicose activities on the Gallipoli peninsula, the official Commonwealth correspon dent says :■—During the past month the Turks have been racing, us for possession of a small knoll on a ridge extending southwards from our lines towards the sea, near. Gaba Tepeh. Two nights ago we got there first. ^ Next day the Turks saw our sane}---.' bags on the crest, where before there X had been nothing but green scrub, V growing around some half-forgotten Turkish trenches originally built against our landing. Next night they crept up, carrying sandbags in front of them, to the edge of the slope, where they placed a low line of sandbags, 16 yards from our trench", and showered m bombs. The Light Horse, who were holding the post, showered bombs back, and beat off the Turks. Elsewhere in the line, a few days ago, five men lost their lives and .15 others were-injured in a most gallant attempt to rescue some of their mates fr...

FAULTY WOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

FAULTY WOOLS. The question of the disposal of the more faulty portion of the Austra lian wool clip ,is a matter of vital in terest to many sheepowners. Writ ing on the subject, Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., state that recent ad vices received from England report that a few firms in the west riding. >" Yorkshire are installing carbonising machinery capable of dealing with the faultier classes of wool turned out by Australia, the Cape, and South America. The biggest part of of the carbonisiug plant of Europe was situated in the North of Erance and in Belgium. Occupation by the enemy, has, of course, put these fac tories out of action, and burry and seedy wools have as a result, been difficult to quit. When the work above reported is complete, the dull ! inquiry at present ruling for these grades should show improvement. H. J. Varcoe has for sale New and Seconhand Cars.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

One often wonders as ha ponders on the paradoxical manner in which, the prohibition people work oat the destiny of-' their theories., Early closing has blinded them to many . other things that are substances in • comparison, to the , early closing shadow.'Throughout the State there are numerous railway refreshment rooms, which are licensed solely to' supply liquor and other refreshments to tho travelling public, and the. bona fide travelling public alone. These licensees pay very small fees, as they are only supposed, and, if ■ the law was enforced, permitted to ply their trade just before the arri val, during the stoppage, and im mediately after the departure of trains. Yet what do we find? - In some towns these refreshments rooms have blossomed, practically, into full blown "publics/' and enter into un fair competition against the duly qualified bang, who'not only pays a thumping license fee, bat is com pelled to stringently observe the various intricacies of the Liquor i Act.

He says :—■ - "Mi Asquith's ideals, interpreted unofficially, are that Belgium should .be restored to complete independ ence, Germany paying an indemnity adequate for the rebuilding of the ruined cities, the revival of the des </ troyed industries, and compensation to the disabled men and relatives o,f the dead.

GERMANY FOOD SCARCITY [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 26 November 1915

The news that foot I is scarce in Germany is as important as the news of a victory in the field (says the Melbourne -"Argus"). We cannot •feel great pleasure in hearing that the people nro in want ; but we can reflect thai, it- is distress of this kind which may help to shorten the war, and thus lessen the ultimate sum of suffering. The Socialist leader, Rer W urm-, declares that misery such as-, is now being endured has never hith - erto been known in Germany. Thjs has been brought about by the de s truction of the enemy's trade. Lit tle meat is now available, and much, is needed for the armies. Eggs and fish, substituted for meat, have be come scarce, owing to our s ubmarine work in the I'aitic. It is apparent that the economic pressure is begin ning to be felt just as wiutor is com ing on. Of Germany's merchant ships some 500 were sunk, captured or interned within a year of the out break of war. in the Baltic within the last month, about 50 vessels were..' sunk or captured, and n...

"If German y wins the world will' not be fit to live in."

"Why," he said, "they don't care what they do, a«cl they are even talking, should . the worst come tp the worst, of com pelling prisoners ox war to fight in j their armies, as 'Frederick the Great/^x did in 1756, when ho compelled-the Saxons to fight for him after they had been made, prisoners.
