District Properties. "Kiewa," An Illustrated Description [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 December 1915

" Kieia," 'Owned by-Mr. G. A. Seamier. An Illustrated Description i ^Farming, with, its multitudinous ramifications, is a science that Mr. G. A. Semmler, of " Kiewa," 13 miles from Gilgaudra, on the Bearbdug Road, knows all about. He was born on a farm at Singleton, near Ade lg ide, and has been engaged in farm life ever since. Wherever he hap pened to settle things began " to move " in an agricultural sense, and the land, under' his scientific treat ment, soon began to recognise that it not only had a master, but a friend, and one who, although he asked of its best, gave it every encouragement and help towards that end. Exper ience is the world's university, and Mr. Semmler holds the highest deg rees it can confer on any of its grad uates. To-day his beautiful home— ■certainly one of the fisest in the western districts of this State—rich pastoral lands and succulent pastures, shows he has not graduated in vain. His is a success that has been gained unaided, and under very disadvan ...

THAT GILGANDRA BRIDGE. SHIRE COUNCIL STILL WORRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 December 1915

THAT GILGANDRA BRIDGE. SHIRE COUNCIL STILL WOR RYING. President harden, of the Gilgan dra Shire Council, is a man •who knows his biz, and one -who is inde fatigable . in his tireless energ}' for the welfare of the sliire. The dan gerous state of the Gilgandra bridge is a matter than has caused him con siderable concern, and he has been using every endeavour to induce the Works Department to put it in a safe and trafiicable condition. How ever, it seems that the department has developed an ear trouble, that has also affected the optic nerves, and it is now both conveniently deaf and blind, at all events, as far as our bridge is concerned. Nevertheless, the President, an ear and eye specia list is treating the case with such skill that the afflicted department is ' likely to be restored , to its normal condition of health, which of late, unfortunately, has not been'of a very robust nature. At present there seems to ,'be some kind of an understanding between the shire and the departmen...

WELCOME TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. Like in the days of Belgium, on -the eve of Waterloo, Grilgandra had gathered all herbeauty • and her chivalry,, and bright the lights shone o'er fair women and brave men, and all went merry as ^tnarriage bell. But the ominous sound that struck the ear of the Duke .of Brunswick was not present* Yet its echo resonated through out the hall with, persistent intrusion that forced alF'to under stand that the nation was writhing in a death'-grip Titian struggle more fierce and determined than ever oc casioned by the tyrant Napoleon Bonaparte. Three of the local boys, who had % been out "wiping something off the slate," had returned wounded from the hard knocks of battle, and the ; townspeople wishing to show their gratitude to those wno had been do ing their utmostJ^o guard their liber ties. and protect the honor of their women and children, gave them a re ception that only the large hearted generous folk of Gilgandra know how. !

SANCTIONED BY BOTH. / HOUSES. On Saturday a wire was received by this/paper from Mr Arkins, mem ber foT' the district, intimating that the Gilgandra-Collie railway pro posals fyad been sanctioned , by the Assembly the previous night. The same wire was sent to the Collie dis trict and'sreceived there with a good deal of satisfaction. The original f proposal was for a line, .from Quambone to Gilgandra, upon which evidence was taken by the Public Works committee with the result that a recommendation was made that for the present one section—from Collie to Gilgandra— be constructed. This recommend ation ultimately came before Parlia ment, and was passed by the Lower House. In course of time it was submitted to the Legislative Council, but owing to the fact that it was in cluded in estimates involing an ex-T penditure of £.16,000,000 for public works the Chamber shelved the ,bill. Since that time an impression lias became broadcast that the Upper House rejected the proposal. The fcill ha...
