Farmers' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 May 1916
Farmers' Union. Carwarp Progress Association has forwarded a circular to all kindred bodies throughout the Mallee, convening a conference at Ouyen, on Thursday, 1st June next. The object of this confer ence is to discuss .the advisability of forming a Malie ,Iarxners' Un ion. In our last isstie 've repub Iished a .report of a meeting held at Yatpool about a monthago, and from that it appears outr northern friends are on t?·hh - ight track. But there is a bigger move on, and that is the formation of a Victorian Farmers' Union, and on Saturday afternoon next, a public meeting is to be held at the Ouyen Hall to discuss the advisability of forming a branch of that body in this dis trict. That the farmers must unite if they are ever going to get out of the old furrow is a stern fact. Really the most powerful body in Australia, it is the only one without direct representation in any Parliament. It is at the beck and call of each and every other class, and will so as long as matters remain...

All-Australia Memorial. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 May 1916
al?s= ustralia Memorial. There was just a danger that the glorious deeds of our soldiers at Gallipoli would be alIowedi to go down to oblivion. Not that the people were likely to foiget, or that they were likely to allow their children to forget, but a real record of what was done there looked like being left to legend-and legend is not usually satisfactory. That danger is to be obviated, and we are to have not only a recordtl, buta record compiled in Australia 07 Australians of the doings of Aus tralians. The British-Australasian Publishing Service is forward with a work which will not only in. mortalise the glorious deeds of our boys at Gallipoli, but will beaecep ted as a reference in the years ta come. To make the work com plete, it is necessary that relatives obtain from Mr. Ben. Oke a form to fill in regarding soldiers whoen listed prior to January 1st last. Photos of those soldiers also are re quired, and the details thus given will be placed under ihe photo, and published in...
The District Soldiers Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 May 1916
The Distrtet Soldiers Fund. As will be seen by tke report elsewhere in this issue, the resi dents of Ouyen and the East Rid ing of Walpeup shire intend voting their patriotic effor ts in a more business like manner for the fut ure. At the first outset, the wave of enthusiasm so swept everyone, that for each project, a meeting was hed and a committee appoin ted Presently we had a Patriotic Committee. a Belgian Relief Com mittee, Recruiting Committee, a Red Cross Society, and a "' Pops" Committee. On each of these prac tically the same people were work ing, and it was not long before things gnt in a tangle. Accounts got mixed, and although the funds all seemed to get where it was in tended. no one exactly knew where they stood. It was no unusual thing for one meeting to gradually merge into another, and as a result endless arguments ensued. All that is now ended. In future two bodies will exist, each working in the interests of the soldiers, but controlled by its own committee and eac...
Patriotic Funds. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 May 1916
Patriotic Funds. The response to the adve'tise et convening the meeting for -dxeda" night last, was not phenomenal When the president 0f the various committees appoin - to look after the different move e1ots in the town (Cr. H.W. pickrinng) took the chair, there ere half a dozen gentlemen and wicethat ntmber of ladies pre "..t. A few more came in later. Thechairman explained that it , considered desirable to hold the meeting so that son ething like 0niformity in carrying on the pa triotic movements might be ar irved at. As matters stood, there we so many different committees. ll working with the one object. that people get confused, and even he, as chairman of practinallv all f them, dii not quite know which ce was holding a meeting very iten. It had been suggested that the whole of the c. mmittees be :banded, and two onvly continne a futuire-the Red Cross Commia tee ard one to control the affairs of the Onven District Soldiers' Fund.

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 May 1916
The Weather. -o Thirteen is usually looked on as an unlucky number, but supersti tious people in this locality will be inclined to alter their minds. It was on the 13th of May that the rain came this year when it was wanted, and it is a remarkable fact that this is the third occasion on which that particular day on the calendar has been chosen to relieve the minds of the people as to the future. Make a note of it, because it's worth while. The weather chart didn't show any rain, but the atmospheric conditions did, and some of our weather wise are shak ing hands with themselves and say ing " What did I tell you?" We are not falling out with them, and join in the general congratulations. It wasn't a big fall--41 points at Ouyen, but as usual, all along the Murrayville line they got it good, and there's more to follow-rest as sured of that. We said months ago that this year's harvest would be good, and see no reason to change the tune. Sunday night gave us one of the hardest frosts for...
Letters For Our Troops. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 May 1916
Letters For Our "Troops. 0 To minimise misunderstanding and possible anxiety to the ralative and friends of our troops, the Minister for Defence (Senator Pearce) has found it advisable to publish thrcughout the Australian press the fact that, on account of military exigencies radical changes have 'oeen made in the constitution of the various umnts. For instance, some infantry battalions have been cut in half and reconstituted into new battalions, and others formed from odds and ends who left Aus tralia intended for definite units. In other arms of the service changes have been equally radical. One re sult of this will be to throw an enormous amount of extra work on our potal service here. Large numbers of letters will come ad dressed to soldiers of various units, necessitating re-sorting and re despatch, sometimes, to a destina tion far distant. To trace the addresses will necessarily involve much time and labor, and those sending letters from Australia should be warned and bear thi...

Local and General. An officer of the Commonwealth ICustom, department vitited the dravery establishment of Mr. G. Sulivan, in Echuca, and seized a lot of pateat fasteners, apparently " made in Holland." The Dutch indication of country manufacture was easily removed, and the Ger marn maker's name uncovered, The return issued by the Govern ment Statist of s:ock in Victoria on March 1, is not encouraging from a houselo'oers point of view.

Ouyen Flour Mill. CAPITAL INCREASED. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 24 May 1916
Ouyena Frlotr Mill. CAPITAL INCREASED. Somewhere about eighty intend ing shareholders attended the metti:g on Saturd-y last to consi der matters in connection with the proocsed Farmers' Co-operative 'Flour Mill. SIr. W. D. Mitchell occupied the chair. and stated that up to the present only 154 shares had been applied for, and in view of the pre sent state of the money mqrket, ard the price of building material, the pro-isional directors did not think it advisable to go on with the erection of buildings this year. For example, galvanised iron had gone up from £17 10/ to £37 10/ per ton, and cther materials were quoted at up to over 100 per cent. increase in price. Owing to the delay in paying the second divi dend to farmers, money was very scarce. and while people were in sympathy with the movement, they had not the money to put in f3r shares. It had been suggested that if the application money be altered there would be a better chance of p!acing the shares. It was thought that if th...

IN M1EMIORIAML ANZAC HERO. ELLISON.-In loving memory of our dear Son and Brother, Private James Leslie, F Company, Sth Battalion, who was killed in action at GalIipoli, Miay 21st, 1915. Age 23. And how can man die better than facing fearfui oddcts For the ashes of his fathers and the temple of his gods! And hath he not high honor, the hillside for a pall, To lie in state while angels wait with etars for tapers tall? And the dark rock pines, like tossing plnmes over his bier to wave; And Comrades' hands in the IoneIy land to lay him in his grave. He died for Honor, King, and the dear Homeland--Australia. and Brother.
