The Ouyen Mail WEDNES., AUG. 2, 1916. Repatriation and— [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 August 1916
WEDINES., AUG. 2, 1916. Repatriation and An old proverb has it that a straw will show which way the wind blows. ILike mo.t proverbs, the proof is in the application. Now that the end of the war would seem to be just below the horizon, Aus tralia will very soon be face to face with some problems which wear a very tough appearance. Under arms we have somewhere about 250,000 men. More, probably, ,but certainly not less. War is a game which not on y alters the physical aspect of the country over which it is fought, but materially alters the character of the participant. Just per example: A British officer, who, prior to the'outbreak, was an office occupant, speaking of an af fair in which he took part at the front, said: "God ! It was life. I can't imagine going to face office again" There you have it in a nutshell. Men used to the hum drum of getting out of bed, going to work, and then back to bed again, have had a new vista opened to them, and they will not be con tent with the six da...
Timberoo South Talks. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 August 1916
Timberoo South Talks. A concert and dance in aid of the Walpenp school bazaar and patriotic fund were held in Timberoo South Hall on Friday, 14th ult., when a varied and interesting program was appreciated by an audience which filled the hall. At the conclusion of the concert, Mr. W. Perry, who ably presided, thanked the performers and all those who contributed towards making the concert such a success, the profit from concert and dance totalling £8. A setting of eggs do- nated by Cr. Glen was put up by auction at the interval, realising after spirited bidding 30/. The perform- ances of the school children reflected great credit upon Miss Adamson, head teacher, for the painstaking and thorough manner in which she in- structed the children in their parts, and were a pleasant surprise to the parents. Following is the program: -National Anthem; chorus, Hymn of Peace, children; song, Mrs. Tag- gart; recitation, Mr. Featherby; Irish jig, Miss E. Englefield; violin solo, Mr. C. Neville; s...
Tempy Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 August 1916
Tempy Topics. A great crowd assembled on the local football ground on Friday to see the old time rivals, Speed and Tem- py, have another tussle. C. Ritchie had charge of the locals, and played quite up to his old form. G. and D. Eastwell and S. Frazer were the best of the others. For Speed, J. M'Ar- thur played a splendid game. Tem- py won, after a strenuous game, by 1.6 to 1.0. The Red Cross funds will benefit to the extent of about £10 by the match. A return game will be played at Speed next Friday. At a later date a meeting with an Ouyen team will be arranged, when your local Red Cross, or District Sol- diers Fund should get a good lift. All our district farmers will be glad to see "Billy" Hughes back at the head of affairs. They say he got that extra sixpence in the purchase of those steamers.
Murrayville Mems. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 2 August 1916
Murrayville Mems. There was a good attendance at meeting called to elect a new com- mittee to manage the affairs of our public hall. This proves an inter- est in the affairs of the town and it is hoped that some very neces- sary repairs to the interior of the building will be carried out. A comfortable hall is always profit- able. Still looking healthy. The total rainfall for July was 212 points. There is a drop of water to spare for use, while the crops- well they never looked better, or had a brighter chance. The semi-final and final of the tennis games were played on Satur- day, and resulted in a win for Mr. F. Helyar and Miss E. M'Lean, who beat Mr. F. Fairy and Miss Evans 6-5. Great interest was evidenced by the fine attendance, and the perfect afternoon helped to the enjoyment. The club will hold a social and dance on a date to be fixed.

Pleasant Sunday Afternoon TO HELP THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 August 1916
Pleasant Sunday afternooPn TO HELP THE HOSPITAL. At the usual meeting of the Ouyen P.L.O. on Monday night week, a most laudable motion was carried This was that a pleasant Sunday af teruoon be arranged for the 20th, inst., and a collection be then taken up in aid of the funds of the pro posed Ouyen District Hospital. This movement was initiated nearly three years ago, but the drought came first, and while that was at its height Kaiser Bill showed his maniacal ten dencies, and since then all efforts have been in the direction of down ing him. Now we are looking for ward much more hopefully; the sea son is showing the finest uromise of any since the first settlement here about, and-well we feel very san guine about the result of the war.r No need to argue on the merits of the Hospital movement-they speak for themselves-and it is time to ge. busy. In connection with the pro posed P.S.A., (and it will be crrried out), Federal and Slate legislators ate being invited to be present and tak...

Good Information. Mr. John Gray, MPL.A., writes from State Parliament House, Melbourne, on the 2L- inst. Dear Sir,-The very high cost of fencing wire, owing to the war, has made is impossible, ex cept at very great expense, for set tiers to fence their land as "per licensed boundaries," the words quot ed being one of the leading questions to be answered by .applicants for Ma.llee Agricultural Leases.. The Lands Department have now, in an swer to my inquiry, sent me the fol lowing reply which will be of interest to those who have completed their six years license period, and whose leases are due for issue. I am, yours faithfully. Department of Lands and Survey, Mielbourne, 1st August, 1916. Sir, Referring to your inquiries, I have to inform you that fencing an aillotment of land in the Mallee is not a condi tion of compliance, and iti may be waived where circumstances justify such a concession, provided the otlher improvements are in the aggregate sufficient in value. The .present ex...

TURRIFF BRANCH. At a well attended meeting of the above branch on ESaturday week, Mr. T. A. R. Buchanan (president) occu pied the chair. The business consis ted chiefly in discussing a number of questions considered to be of im portance to farmers, and which were on notice from the previous meeting.

The Ouyen Mail WEDNES., AUG. 9, 1916. Where's The Sense? [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 August 1916
S. rID??S-9 AUG. 9, 1916. W here's The Sense ? Departmental ways are devious. If a straight road exists, a roundabout one gets the preference. WhiIe it is difficult to understand any of them, the Railway department certainly is entitled to the credit of knowing how not to do it. The most palpable facts are ignored. and the greatest amount of nonsense practised. WVe are. not referring to tile officials at any sta tion-they are simply the victims of routine-but to tile heads. That this is a time of economy and saving we -know, but there are times when econ omy becomes a positive waste. Economy which causes more work wi.thont any asving of expenditure, is a feature which should be absent from any well conducted business. If the same amount of work could be done in half the time, the man of business acumen will avail himself of it. But that is not the way with the Railway people. So long as the work is done, there is no noise, no matter nnder what conditions, in what time, so long as it...

CouneilIor A. Anderson, one of the vice presidents, presided. The offi iial report states that the organisers reported that during th: month the bianches had increases from 44 to 85, and that the movement was likely to advance at even a greater ratio dur ing the next few months.

In places branches were being formed without the assistance of the organisers. The Farmers' and Settlers' Association of New South WVales had invited the union to ap point five delegates to a conference - to be heed.in Melbourne during Sep A-ember, to decide upon Federal politi • al action.
