Somewhere In France. The following is an extract fro n a letter received from Pte. A. C Cooper, somewhere in France: On arrival in France the people gave us a good reception. "We were entrained for the front, and after a 60 hours' journey through beautiful country, arrived within 15 miles of the front. On stepping from the train the roar of the big guns could be pl:ainly hea:rd. The houses are all suhst:ntial, comfor table homes, of two and three stor ies, with red tiled roofs, but near the front they ar, mostly in ruins. and any that are left h Lv, no glass in the windows and the doors are i were all used for fuel during last winter.

ADVERTISE. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 21 June 1916
ADVERTISE. There w:s an old geezer and I ha hu lots of sense ; He started uip a business on a dollar eightv-cents--the dollar for stock and the eighty for an ad., Brought him three lovely dollars a day, by gad ! Well, he brought more goods adml a little more space, And he played that system with asmile on his face, The customers flocked to his two-by-fonr, And soon he had to hustle for- a regular store. Up on the square, where the people pass, SHe gobbled up a corner that was all plate glass, He fixed up the windows with the best that he had, And he told them all about it irma full page ad. He soon had 'em coming and he never, never quit, And he wouldn't cut down dn his ads., one jit. WVell, he's kept things humping in the town ever since, And everybody calls him the Merchant Prince: Some say it's luck, but that's all bunrk Why, he was doing business when the times were punk, People have to purchase, and the geezer WaS wise For he knew the way to get 'erm was to odvertise.

A Railways Send Off. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 21 June 1916
A Railways Send Off. Three members of the Ouyen staff of the Ways and Works Branch of the Railway department have gone hence to new fields of usefulness. These are Roadmaster Kennedy, Wali, clerk, and A. Chivers, laborer. To mark their appreciation of the three as officials and comrades, about 40 of the employes assembled at Mrs. Harris' dining rooms on Friday night to bid farewell and make pre- sentations. Guard Blackie occupied the chair, having the guests on his right, while Messrs. M'Donald (superin- tendent), and Jones, (Mr. Ken- nedy's successor), were accommo- dated with seats on his left. The loyal toast having been hon- ored enthusiastically, that of the Gnests was next on the list. In proposing this one, the chairman said it was not often railway men were called together to bid fare- well to three at one time, and the gathering was proof enough that he was voicing the feelings of all when he expressed keen regret that they were losing such good officers and comrades. The t...

Requires An Answer. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 28 June 1916
Requires an Answer. " A Ratepayer ' indignantly asks some questions which certainly de mand Investigtio tion: :"I would like to bring under the notice of racepay era the way their money is wasted. What is the use of sinking dams if they are to be fi!led up again by the mud whieh is pumped along with water? The pumping would not be necessary, anyhow, if the catchment drains wre leanel d out in a proper manner, and at the proper time. Just lately an attempt has been made to clean out the Boulka drains (the first since they were made)-a scoopful. here and there, taken out and then tipped on thbe catchment side to be washed back by the water, or blown back by the wind; and what is worse, I heheve the work has been passed and paid for.

Nyang Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 28 June 1916
Nyang Notes. District farmers are not forgetful of the soldiers, and this was proved in a prdctical way last week when a round dozen attended at Mvr. Campbell's farm to put in some crop. Both of Mr. Campbell's sons are in the khaki clad :anks, up holding their own and our rights, and the 100 acres of crop put in is by no means too great an apprecia tion to show. We have had glorious rain for the week end, and crops will bene fit greatly. This heartens every one, and we are believing for that fall which will fill the dams. Recognising that the time is al I together ripe, or rotten, or some I hnfarmers in this district are forward in the movement to organ ize for their own benefit. At a meeting on Saturday night it was decided to form a branch of the Victorian Farmers' Union, and office bearers for the first term were chosen, as follow, from 20 mem bers enrolled for a start :-President, Mr. C.

Glorious Rainfall. GREAT SEASON ASSURED. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 28 June 1916
Glorious Rainfall. I GREAT SEASON ASSURED. One does not need to tax his memory very much to remember a similar season to the present one. It is merely a matter of observa tion. But to go back a few years. In 1893 the famous Goulburn Val ley was not quite the garden it is to-day, but wheat growing held the farmers in a grip. The year open ed badly. January, February and March were dry. April gave light rain, May improved, and June Ifound the watering can tipped up to some tune. What was the re suIt ? Well, if you look up records you will probably find that wheat that year touched its lowest in the history of the State. Those who could, held on, and one man at least bought what he could afford, and did not sell until 1896, when he got a big price for all-he was quite satisfied. We do not suggest that wheat this year is going to reach the ebb again, but we do say, without fear of the consequences, that 1916 is going to be a year of yield to remember. Up to the end of last month. the to...
