EUMUNGERIE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 3 December 1915

(From our Correspondent.) Wheat Dump—The new wheat stacking provision is " tin fait ac compli"—after-a manner. Instead of fixing the new ground so that it might settle before the wheat came in, the Railway Department put the work in hand so that it -was not finished before the last days of No vember. The result is that teams | of horses and bullocks are to be seen straining in the dust with -waggon wheels well down .in the soft earth carefully deposited to a depth of two feet to impede them. The vexations of the farmer are numerous enough, in all conscience, without an addi tional and unnecessary blunder of this sort being worked off on him. As an engineering joke'it is a high example of bad taste and ineptitude, for which the joker ought to be con demned to punch bullocks through sand holes for the term of his un natural life. Wheat Grab—When the report of the Parliament proceedings on Wednesda / last disclosed that far mers may sell right out to Govern ment agents at 4<...

A SAD DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 3 December 1915

"V That "in the midst of life we are in death" was tragically illustrated in the very .sad and . unexpected ly suddan death of Mrs Gallon, the wife of Mr A. S. Gallon, night officer at Gilgandi'a railway station, on Friday last. The deceased lady had only been recently confined, but was in such a state of health that nothing untoward was anticipated. The shock to the young husband, who is left with an infant 5 days old, was so great that it utterly prostrated him. The death is a peculiarly sad one, and-the heartfelt sympathies of the community are with the bereaved husband and little one. The body was conveyed by train toDabbo and interred in the Dubbo cemetery, the coffin beiug placed in the same grave as deceased's child previously buried there. The late Mrs Gallon, who wa.s only 21 years of age, was the daughter of Mr and Mrs Lake of Trangie and Geurie, arid a sister , of Mrs Yal Smith of this town. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr Suiirth waite

MR W. BURRELL INTER VIEWED. ■NOTHING; TO FUSS ABOUT One day this week a "Gilgandra Weekly" man happened on Mr W. Burrell, a well known farmer of this district, and during the coarse of conversation the all absorbing topic of the federal Government wheat pooling scheme was touched upon. Mr Bux*rell was quite eloquent on the subject bu^i what most impressed our scribe was his cheery opticism in regard to the wisdom of the gov ernment action and its ultimate suc cess. He recognised that tinder pre vailing conditions the Federal Gov ernment is the only competent agent to handle the wheat, and although bitter complaints had been ^voiced, the results of the scheme would more than justify its adoption. He was prepared to give the government his wheat, and felt sure he would re- 1 • I 'ceive fully 4s per bushel for it. * : As an old Wellingtor.ian, Mr Bur rell was loath to apeak of the Welling- j ton farmers in resolving to stack their wheat on their farms, and refuse to deliver to the Fede...
