No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 3 July 1915
Ta" screeching about stopping party politics in the Federal Parlia ment until after the war is useless, because the war may go on for years, and the Federal Parliament has to have its entrances and exits. It really does not matter what changes are made in the Federal constitution, it will not work pro perly until there is a Federal public opinion, and that will only begin to exist after the removal of the Federal Parliament to Canberra. Drift without leaders is the 'only possible programme at present. SIR George Reid should not have been removed from office. He was entitled to remain there until he resigned. The best successor would be Sir John Forrest. But Mr. A. Fisher would be no loss to Australia if he took the position. Anybody but that bounder, Mahon. Messrs. McPhail Bros. will hold their usual monthly market at Mel ton to-day. On Wednesday next, 7th inst., Messrs. L. A. Fairbairn & Co. will offer, at Toolern Vale, the property known as "Condon's paddock," of 137 acres...

MOTOR MANUFACTURE. The production of the Ford Motor Co. (the largest in the world) will for the year ending August 1st reach 325,000 cars, or 25,000 in ex cess of the estimated output. In one day (March 17th) the produc tion reached 2,096 cars, certainly a record. The vehicles were delivered from the maii plant, and 22 assem bling plants throughout the country. To achieve the enormous output (annually), the Ford officials declare that no special arrangements are made, it is the result from the grad ual increase in the number of work men, and the continual perfecting of the general working system throughout the plants. Between 16,000' and 17,000 Wmen were engaged in three shifts daily at the main plant, and 7,000 working 8 hours daily, at the assembling plants when the record day's output was pro duced. The company does not give the figures as exceptiona'l, as on the day following the record was 2,026 cars, while on .Aliril 11th it was 2,011. From that date the proauc tion was to be ...

In no year'of abun dance have the prospects of a good season been more promising than at present.

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 3 July 1915
THE WAR. On Monday evening last Lieut Colonel T. S. Marshall, who is also Chief Officer of Country -Fire Bri gades,. gave a lecturette on "The War," which the speaker said was of special interest to him, as he hlad a son in the fighting at the Dardla nelles. The young ~w. were making history for' Australi' ' there; and fighting to the last gasp. - They were also wondering why the young men here were not coming- over-.to their assistance. There were many who could very well go. The speaker then went on to de scribe (with the aid of maps) the landing of the Australians at the Dardanelles, which they had effected under the greatest difficulties. He thought the Australians would have beeh strengthened up by some of the British. regulars from India,- but General Hamilton had such confi dence in the Australians that he sent them by themselves. The open ing of "The Narrows," which was at present holding them back, would relieve Russia. They could not do anything with Roumania and Bul garia...

. GLENMORE. (FnOeL OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) An accident occurred here ,on iThursday evening, resulting in the death of Master Lachlan Grant Don ald,. of Bungeltap. While 'coming home from school, the pony which the boy was riding fell and threw him off: He continued to ride home, to his uncle's residence at Yaloak Vale. where he was staying, but shortly afterwards distressing symp toms developed, and Dr. T. B. Ryan Swas summoned by telephone froen Mr. Boyd's, but before the doctor could arrive the poor boy expired. The. cause of death was hemorrhage of the brain. Much sympathy is felt for the parents, as he was their "only child. Arbor day was to have been held on Friday, but it has been decided not to hold the event this year, as mark of esteem- of the family. We have had very severe weather, which is very hard on the poor stock. But the crops have come on splendid, and we hope to have a good season after the severe drought.

THE IllStiell Of 01ie BllvelSpllrs By FRED. M. WHITE. Author of "The Ends of Justice," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London and Melbourne. ( (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XLV.-Contlnued. Suddenly the noise ceased. There was a moan and the soft, crushing fall of a body. Ralph's face blazed up in stantly. "Now," he cried, "there is no time to be lost." Geoffrey' di·rted forward. He had the door opened in an instant. Mrs. May lay still and white on the floor. The atmosphere of the room seemed to have vanished. It was intolerable to breathe there; air there was none. As the door fell back the room filled as with a sudden strong draught. Geof frey dragged the unconscious figure into the corridor. "Will she die?" he gasped. "No; she will not die," Ralph said coolly. "Had I intended hei-to?.die I should not have allowed you to: open the door. Pick, her up and throw her on one of the' beds in a spare room. She will require no attention but she will not attain consc...
