THE Y.M.C.A. AND DEMOBILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 May 1919

lira Y.M.C.A. ANDDEMOBIL1S A TION; ". By "Triangle." The armistice news of last Novem ber created a widely "spread feeling in . the -community that further patriotic . effort was unnecessary," as the war. had practically ended. The succeeding few months haVe shown how mistaken such a conception was. With all the unsettled- conditions still prevailing, we recognize that we are fortunate in having our men returning to us this year. Their remaining abroad for a lengthy period might easily haye be come a necessity. Thank God, they are coming home!- But that very fact itself imposes upon the patriotic work ers a serious obligation, .for. it meztfis that the splendid record of patriotic service in the interests of our men must not weaken and taper off during the critical period of-demobilisation. The Red Cross, in its care of the sick and wounded; the Comforts' Fund, in receipt and distribution of trench comforts, have still a "carry on" work to do; the Y.M.C.A., with its task of caring f...

But the ugly blot was there. Far ther up the valley, and just beyond the curve, the precipitous hillside was seared and scarred with pits and ex cavations. In one of the underground; passages of these, the dreaded silver mines of Nerischinks, the scene on that October afternoon offered an ap palling contrast ito the brightness of the outer landscape.

CHAPTER XI.. Sebranji reeled against the desk, bis face livid. . Bat in another mbment he straightened up and with assumed calmness opened the upper drawer of an oak cabinet. His Ijand swept quickly through its contents ; then in a flash he turned and made for the window that looked out on the street. "Stop !" Captain Baranofl's voice rang sharply through the room. Sebranji turned and found himself staring into the muzzle of a revolver at a distance of ten feet. The others had also drawn their weapons, and ' Cranbrook was alongside of the po lice captain. "At the first move I will send a bullet through you," declared Bars noS. "The game is up, DaresoS, and you may as well submit." Sebranji realised that all hope was gone. The terrible ferocity of bif nature came to the front in that mo ment of despair, and the cast of his features remained indelibly stamped on the memory of his captors. But for the influence of the loaded wea pons that were turned upon him, be would have fought like...

ORROROO AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the subscrib ers was held in the Institute recently, and the attendance could not be called a large or a representative one. Mr. E: Copley presided, and the Secretary (Mr. J. C. Hagger) presented the balancer-sheet, which was adopted. Financially, the Society is not over burdened with cash, for, allowing for the Government grant to be on the same scale this year as last, there will still be a deficit of approximately £s. The auditors rendered a report on the system of bookkeeping, and thanked Mr. W. C. Addison for his valuable services in assisting in the audit. Mr. J. P. Keats' urged that the Secretary call the Ways" and Means Committee together to discuss and report on the advisability of removing the show ground fixtures to a more central site.

We cams down jfrom Tripoli last week to Moascar, per boat and train, and thought we were in for a good time with "eat up joints" and picture shows, but the Fates were against us, and instead of that we are guarding Egyptian Gov ernment property' and railways.
