Shire Peace Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — Kooweerup Sun, Lang Lang Guardian and Cranbourne Shire Record — 20 November 1918

A public meeting was held at Koo weerup on Saturday night to consid er the shire peace celebrations on 27th inst. Mr .1. Mickle presided, and there was only a small attendance. There seems uncertainty as to the ad.-^ ..visableness of holding such a celebra tion just now, especially in view of the latest cabled intelligence, that the Kaiser's abdication is doubted, and he is being asked to return to .Germany. Many* think it better to wait l'or a declaration of peace. Tho shire is pi'tviding refreshments for all childrenT'in the shire (estimat ed at' aboJJt ^lO00), at Is 3d pet food.: Or.

S.U c C.ESSFL.L KXIILISLTION. Thd annual flower show and exhibi tion of home industries was held in connection with the Kooweerup Pres byterian Church on Wednesday and Thursday last, and was very success ful. Its success was mainly duo to the untiring energies of the secre taries, Mrs J. A. Mickle and Mr J. •J. Hudson, who worked hard and consistently, and whose efforts are deserving of special commendation. It was, however, a labor of "love, considerably lightened and rendered pleasant by the spontaneous way the public responded to the calls made upon them. The president of the La dies' Guild, Mrs Mickle, was very pleased with the result, and desires to thank all those who came for ward and helped in various ways. The show was opened on Wednes day by the liev. N. M. Jaboor, B.A. He said that it was a day to rejoice and be glad, on account of the peace news.

Cricket. KOOWEERUP FORMS A CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Kooweerup Sun, Lang Lang Guardian and Cranbourne Shire Record — 20 November 1918

Cricket. KOOWEERUr FORMS A CIAJB. Now that the .war is over, or pre sumably so, attention is being turn ed to matters which during its re gime have been brushed aside for. sterner things. ISiot to say that there is not yet plenty to do, or that we can lightly go on our way without recognising the grave responsibilities that confront us as an aftermath of the war. The cessation of hostilities, how ever, and the impending declaration of a peace which we trust will be for many long years to come, has heartened tlie people into something like their old selves, so that former pastimes are already commencing to bob up serenely. Cricket in the coun try centres has practically been taboo since 1014. A few spasmodic games of football have been played. Nowhere, however, has the same in terest been taken in sport. Minds were centred on graver issues. Now the fighting is all over, we hope, the last shot has been tired, the last en gine of destruction lias ceased to maim and kill, the last barra...

Peace Celebrations at Lang Lang. [Newspaper Article] — Kooweerup Sun, Lang Lang Guardian and Cranbourne Shire Record — 20 November 1918

Peace Celebrations at Lang Lang. (From our Correspondent.) The glad tidings that peace was declared was received with the ut most enthusiasm in Lang Lang. The erstwhile deserted streets were quick ly filled with a joyous, happy crowd, who formed an impromptu procession and paraded to the Mechanics' Hall, where patriotic choruses were sung with great gusto, hymns of thanks giving were also reverently sung. Leading citizens gave speeches, and the "Tin Can Band" rendered selec tions—with grand effect. It was quickly decided to continue the cele brations all the following day, and wind up with a concert and dance at night. Ko the happy crowd-dispersed, some to their homes, and some— well, there was a difference in the morning. However, they bore their ills bravely, and sang and marched , and raced with the best of them. On Tuesday the procession was indeed, a ci'edit to the town. Headed by horsemen, bearing aloft huge Dags, they paraded all the main streets, and thence to' the Show Grou...

A MAGGOT FACTORY. CLYDE SOLDIER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kooweerup Sun, Lang Lang Guardian and Cranbourne Shire Record — 20 November 1918

A MAGGOT FACTORY. ■ — CLYDE KOIiDIJ&rt'S STORY. I No doubt the account of the Ger man corpse factory is still fresh in I the minds of our readers, if such a I thing could be fresh. This story, giv en with circumstantial detail at the j time, was laughed to scorn by some and believed by others. The ingenuity of the Hun, however, leads him into divers channels to get what he wants, and the fact that he wanted fat got him scratching his thinking-box to know how to get it. Sgt. A. P. Croskell, M.M., writing to his brother at Clyde, says :—"I do not know whether you hav# ever heard of a maggot factory, but it is a fact, . as our battalion captured one. The Germans killed horses to make sausages, all the refuse going to the maggot factory. The maggots are said to contain a large percent age of fat, which is very necessary for shell making, etc. It cannot be a very enviable occupation.''
