Yatpool Yarns. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 26 July 1916
Yatpool Yarns. We keep rejoicing. Nearly two inches of rain have fallen this month, and as a consequence, everything in the garden-also the paddock-looks lovnly. Despite the bad time settlers as a whole have had since starting in this locality, the Yaspool-Carwarp Red Cross Society has collected, up to June 30, the handsome snm of £124. Verily the glor5 of our soldiers is ap preciated. 7Yatpudlians contributed three truakloads of wood to the Mildura hospital by a wood bee recently. This is as it should be and shose who workei will fid .heir reward in satisfaction, although, of course, charity corers a multitude of sins. Probably soiae cf ours are wiped off by this act. The paragraph in a recent issue of the Mta, on the matter of freight on Mallee roots, was read at the last meeting of the Farmers' Union, and caussd a good deal of comment. Ow iog to the 1ate hour at which the meeting closed, action was deferred until next meeting, when members will probably anY what they think of the...

The Partmers' Unifon. OLUYEN BRANCH. There was a capital attendance at she meetwg of the above body on aturday afternoon, but curiously enough, neither the president or either of the vice-presidents put in ,o appearance. The first named sent n apology, as did also some other members. Mr. W. Farrell was voted to the chair. The correspondence was light, in clnding letters from kindred branches stating that the matter of the Yelta railway rate would receive attention aS next meecting. TuritT branch suggested that the preliminary conference at Ouyen be held on 6th September, and this was referred to the president and secre tary of the Carwarp branch, these having been appointed at the last conference to convene the next one. GalLh branch wrote asking eo operation in testing the legality of the water rate in view of the fact that the land was already loaded 2/6 per acre for water and roads. This letter caused a good deal of discussion, daring which it was pointed out that a a matter of f...
A Cruel Slander. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 26 July 1916
R erUel Slander. Cpl. V. S. Belleville writes from Broadmeadows camp:-S Would you be so kind as to gra me space in your columns to rect a most scandalous rumor that i been circulated about me since came back to camp from the G district. I believe it is repo there that I would never have I camp only for having a dr disease, and only left Broadn dows to escape being sent to warrin isolation camp. Now, such a case had been true, is it n likely that they have ample opp tunitv to do so with me since have returned to camp? If person or persons who started a ridiculous rumor as this ke the injury they were doing me, am sure they would make ce of things first, and then if I guilty I would give in, but Ido think it is likely that I should among my friends if such was case. I also heard that I waft decently dressed, my clothes be torn and ragged and dirty, but course I take no notice of that, such Galah telegrams do 87 times, and I know the people kno better than that.

Advertise. There was an old geezer and ha had lots of sense; le started up a business on a dollar eighty-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 and a little more space, Andi he played that system with a smile on his face, The customers flocked to his twovby-four, And soon he had to hustle for a regular store. Up on the squlare, where the people pass, He 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 abont it in a full page ad. He soon had 'em coming and he never, never quit, And he wouldn't cut down on his ads., one jit Well, he's kept things humping in the town ever since, And everybody calls him the Merchant Prince: Some say it's hick, but that's all bunk Why, he was doing business when the times were punk, People have to purchase, and the geezer waswise For he knew the way to get 'em was to odvertise.

The Land Acts. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 26 July 1916
The Land Apcts. Some of our readers will remember that a few months ago, the Onyen Branch of the P.L.C. carried motions urging that the Land Aces be amen ded. The first motion was to put townshia allotments on the same footing as all other Crown lands in the matter of transferonce. As every one knows a settler taking np a block has to fulfil certain conditions as to improvements and residence before he can dispose of his rights to ano ther. This is quite as it should be, when the future of the State is con sidered. It prevents dummying and. the aggragation of estates-the curse of any community. But while that provision applies to broad acres, the Acts allow any speculator, boomster, or other pest, to absorb the pick of a township in its infancy, and thus re tard its growth. One need go no further atield than any one ofthe Mallee towns to see how progress is hampered by the land leeches. All the best allotments are lying idle just because the owners are waiting until someone who want...

Threepence A Week. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 26 July 1916
Threepence R Week, From sn acorn the oak grew, so from a very much smaller seed the giauts which grace our Australi1r fUrelss. In some towns therear1 progress sssociations, while in othare there are mutual improvement socr ties. Mostly these die young act forgotten. Why? Well, pr1cpal because those who-are the head an1 front get tired after seeing a scheme fulfilled, and the future h no interest for them.
