Levy, who has suc cessfully conducted the business for nearly two years past. On Thursday last the sale was effected, the estate of the late Con Curran becoming the purchasers at a figure much in ad vance of that paid previously in connection with the same house.

It was their first experience in any business of the kind ; they have done well, and are to be congratulated on the very satisfactory sale.

THE WHEAT SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 December 1915

A. CONTRIBUTION ME. E. . townsekd; In attempting^to criticise the posi tion at the present time I wish the reader to recognise that it is the pos ition as I see it to-day. I mention ' this because the scheme has been al most daily changing in some detail, and although we now seem to have arrived at finality, there may be far ther changes, I intend dealing with the subject in a business spirit, ab solutely free from the taint of party politics. Unfortunately all classes of the community, at the present time, are too prone to read politics into every action of our Govern ments. The "good" Labor man im agines he is in duty bound to support anything introduced by his Govern-'" ment, and the' "good" Liberal ditto. Such has been the fate of the present wheat scheme. In the first place, it is an error to designate the scheme "Hughes' because it was evolved at a confer ence of all the State Ministers for Agriculture. After being debated at considerable length it was put for ward by them as ...

Lasb autumn the storks left Russia and Galicia a month earlier than usual; they were noticed in flocks oc 80 to 100 on their way ;hr .u-2h Austria, where they alighted on the roofs and ch'imueys of the houses to rest before continuing their journey south. Other birds of pas sage have inserted their old routes of flight, and have chosen new air roads along less disturbed regions. : Both going rmd returning these birds 1 were observed in places where they were never seen before and were miesed in the localities where battles were raging. In Luxemburg,-where otherwise millions of birds congre : gate in the leafy forests, there are now scarcely any to be seen or heard.

At a gathering in the Melbourne Town Hall on Tuesday night last, at which prizes awarded to boys of Scotch College were distributed, Brigadier-General M'Cay delivered a rousing speech. At times General M'Cay spoke with deep emotions, and at the conclusion of the utterances he was .loudly/cheered. Brigadier-General M'Coy, who was received with tremendous en thusiasm, said the words that had been quoted by the principal in his report, "The school will not forget,"x had given him a subject for his ad dress. What was it the school would not forget ? It would forget the small things, but Mot the big things. The biggest thing was the simplest thing—a thing that was be ing done a million times every day—• duty. The Empire sounded a loud er call-to duty than ever before in history.
