THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS. D. H. ADAMS. (1918.) Never again! This phrase has been quoted again and again,by speakers and writers, with warmest enthusiasm and most determined em phasis during: the. past several years, while the world's war has been raging, and vast and ap palling destruction of life and property have been carried on by Gemany and her allies. When the human mind is roused to a full activity through periP and distress, it is usual to try to find some panacea for the ills which have been the cause of the suffering. In such a case it may be found that the discovery made is one which will prevent a recurrence of the trouble. In the case of the Great War^ with its attendant enormous and disastrous results on mankind in general, many minds have been exercised to find some way to pre* vent a repetition of the same or similar disas ter. Hence, it was conceived to endeavour to form a sort of combination of representa tives of various nations, to consider and settle any dispute ari...

'Memories' CHAPTER 37. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
Wri&to*nT»peci*lly fot "Tke Petftte feuig Time»"\ by S.-Majir B,. A. CUrlra. , :. '.'* ?" CHAPTER 37. &lt;A; xtoied writer once said that "The miracle- -of the. war consists of the ' uprising of the . British Empire." It must be so, for in all the Empire's1 military history, varied as it may be, there, are no facts so striking as . the unequalled rapidity with which our battalions have been raised, trained, and'entered the foremost lines of our ' fighting front. The success of the regiments' stands for the quality of its personnel, both in officers and men. A spirit-more of enthusiasm than patriotism -alone--has produced - officers and men of a type why;h has not_.£ome"to light in any other war; Misgivings there were. Critics ven tured derogatory opinions on the Australian and his steadiness and dis cipline in European warfare, but those critics " have" . been long silenced. ''Linfe" "of communications" was the general verdict:for Australian troops but our lads have ...

"GUARD WELL THE YOUNG." [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
"G*TARD WELL THE YOUNG." There's poison in a system where Discipline holds no moral sway To guard the minds of those wao dare To spread corruption on life's way. In many schools there is no check To vile behaviour that defiles The youthful sense and tends to wreck All innocence its lure beguiles. Youth's viciousness unpunished goes, Authority looks on and winks. Unmindful of the pranks of those Whose conduct to debasement sinks. Instructive art elates the mind When subject to restraint it be; Gives impetus to it to find Volition of wisdom's decree. But if within its schools we find Depravity uncurbed may grow, To allow such is worse than blind, And want of knowledge serves to show. Blest ignorance were better far Than to attempt to cultivate The minds wherein vice horrors are Fed up to thrive and desecrate. The teachers of our children should Train them to know and do whafs right; Not let them in base passions mood As wilful dexnonds grow in might. Godless the schools where godless ...
CRICKET. ORROROO ASSOCIATION V. PETERBOROUGH ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
CRICKET. ORROROO ASSOCIATION - v. PETERBOROUGH ASSOCIATION. The . Peterborough team visited Or rorbo on Saturday last, it being the first meeting this .season of the teams. The cool change of-Friday night cleared the air somewhat, and on Saturday mor . ijing broke cool "with a fairly strong wind from the south. W. C Dowling and: Leicester led the visitors. Heads -" jvas elected captain of the home learn, favored the visitors, who won the toss, but they decided to take the field. M. Duffy and W. C. Addison opened, the form A- taking strike to F. -Rock,, and opening his account with a neat -pair through the -slips. A. Collins opened the attack from the northern end in tile face of a stiff breeze, Duffy leg glancing Ids first for a couple in good style. -Neither batsmen were taking liberties, singles coming frequently. A neat pair to leg seemed to breed . the impetuous spirit in Addison, but he played the remain der of the over quietly. The. Pekina man was taking no risks; but his stro...
BOOLEROO CENTRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
BOOLEROO CENTRE. The hay crops are turning out better than was expected, ^nd considerable Quantities are being cat; in fact, there is a slump in the hay market. Where some people with good hay crops wanted to sell at £6 to £7 an acre, they find there are no purchasers, as most people are able to cut enough for their own requirements on less ground than they thought they would have to get over to get it, and many who have cut much more than their present needs are offering hay for sale at £3 10/ per ton, dry weight, which is a reasonable price, consider ing the season's outlook. Good-look ing wheat crops are about, also very inferior looking ones; but what the harvest will be is a conundrum very dependent on weather conditions for a satisfactory solution. After intense heat, gusty and fierce, we are being treated to reverse con ditions-cold and southerly, tempes tuous winds without rain. When our brave soldiers went to battle for us all patriotic minded people, especially the low-che...
EURELIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
EURBLIA. November 4.-Betwixt the absence of rain, hot north winds, and travel ling stock-sheep to the number of 10,000 have passed here during the last week-the vicinity of the town is almost bare of feed, and straying stock, of which there are a fair num ber about sampling the fences, seem to be busy smelling at the crops and getting at them if there is half a chance. Shearing is finished, and haymaking started. In most cases the cut is very light. Crops are ripen ing fast, owing to the terrific heat last week. The committee of the Euprelia Hall have put their wise heads together and thought of a glo rious plan to remedy the defective lights in use at present-no more chance of sitting in the dark, or watching the lamps go out. The writ er thinks these lamps were made on the daylight saving system, evidently believing in the early-to-bed rule. The hon. secretary and mechanic of the "Gloria" Light Co. are busy install ing the "Gloria" light in the hall, and the coming strawberry fete...

CRICKET CHATTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
CRICKET CHATTER. Though dust was a big item at times i« the match on Saturday, cricketers generally had much to be thankful for,in that the rool change arrived on Fri day night, and left the air cooler for the meeting the following day, and when ih» teams took the field at 10.50 a.m. the conditions were 'good, the only jarring item being the wind that drove down the pitch, and played pranks with the eyeB when batting at the railway end. Duffy and Addison, whoopeaied for Orro roo, played soundly and put on 41 for the first wicket in 45 minutes. The Pekina man was a tower of strength; his de fence was solid, and the bail that bowled him was-a good one. Addison fell to the trap that awaited him at square leg; he played the game, hut throughout his stay at the wickets there was a keen de sire to be jumping out and smiting lustily. McGuire did just what followers of the game knew he would-prove in* vincible. He played with care and steadiness, and' his 45 was a valuable contribution. L. ...
DISTRICT NEWS. CARRIETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
DISTRICT MEWS. CARRIETON. November 7.-A very pretty wed ding was celebrated in the Catholic Church, the contracting parties being Kathleen, only daughter of Mr. Michael Hinchey, of Johnburgh, and James Rowe. The mutual knot was tied by the Rev. Father Ketts. Miss Cahill acted as bridesmaid, and Mr. I. Mclnerney as best man. Owing to the bride being in mourning, every thing was of a very quiet nature, and only very close relatives were invited to the breakfast, which took place, in the Carrieton Hotel. The happy couple then left honeymooning for Adelaide. Mrs. B. Reidy, who has been so long in the Port Augusta Hospital, has returned to our midst, but we are sorry to say she will be an invalid for months yet to come. We all wish her a speedy recovery. Mr. J. Reidy, sen., who was so ably acting as ostler at Carrieton Hotel, has relinquished the position, which has been taken over by the veteran groom Mr. T. Hall. Messrs. R. and S. Warwick, of Hol lowilina Station, have been spending a ...

ORROROO'S LOSS. The late FREDERICK FORBES, J.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 7 November 1919
ORROROO'S LOSS. The late FREDERICK FORBES, J.P. [From "The Orroroo Enterprise."] Passed away at his residence, Mr. F. Forbes, at the comp&ri tively early age of 55 years. Though his demise did not come as a shock to the community, his passing brought home to the average citizen the fuli value of the district's loss. In all that stood for the advancement of the town and district that he loved so well, there was no more ardent worker. Not so many months ago his cheery voice seemed to be part and parcel of the town and its community, but a strained heart heralded the ceasing of his labors, and since then his popular figure has been missing from the street. Dropsy played havoc with his solid frame ; he fought the good fight but succumbed at 6.30 a.mr on Monday last. In searching back in the haze of recollection, - one finds splendid qualities tar above the average. His friendships were firm and lasting. If he differed he did so strongly, but without dropping, his fineness_of"cha...
