Advertise. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 August 1916
advertise. There was an old geezer and ha had lots of sense; He started up a business on a dollar eighty-cents--the dollar for stock and the eighty for an ad., Brought him three lovely dollars a day, by gad! Well, he brought more goods and a little more space, And he played that system with a smile on his face, The customers flocked to his two-by-fonur, And soon he had to hustle for a regnlar store. Up on the square, where the people pass, He gobbled up a corner that was all plate glass, He fixed up the windows with the best that he had, And he told them all about it in a fall page ad. He soon had 'em coming and he never, never quit, And he wouldn't cut down on his ads., one jit Well, he's kept things humping in the town ever since, And everybody calls him the Merchant Prince: Some say it's lack, but that's all bunk Why, he was doing business when the times were punk, People have to purchase, and the geezer was'wise- For he knew the way to get 'em was to odvertise.
Early Mallee History. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 August 1916
Following on the article of a few weeks back, MrIt. Feitz gives a second instalment. This deals with the settlemnens of ilorsham distirict. Mr. Feitz says: A portion of Springfield was open for select:ion in 1893. Two farmers appiied and obtained blocks, bht they had absolutely no know ledge of Maliee farming, and very little more of the English language. While getting an insight into the conditions of Mallee cultivation, they engaged Mr. Feitz to manage for them. On arrival at their blocks it was found that water was as scarce as gold, so a trip to Spriogfield was necessary. On arrival there, Mr. M'E-r2ane showed Mr. Feita to a dam, containing about 18 inches of water, in which a drove of eight pigs was puddling. It was not very in viting to Mr. Feitz, but it was water, and t;,t,? was a -commodity which neither man nor beasS--including the pigs--c.uld do'without, so the tanks were filled, and the aediment aliowed to settle to give the horses the al1 necessary drink. On arrival back...

From The Boys. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 August 1916
From The Boys. Pte. Alf. Emmett, of Boinka, in a ter to his mother wrigen from Capetown, Sth. Africa, says : We are not getting any personal leave, but are being marched out in the morn- ing and back again at night. We anchored out in the bay about mid- night on Saturday, 17th. June, and 4 o'clock in the morning sailed in- to harbor. My word, it was a lovely sight as we drew up to the pier; all the town being lit up with electric light. It seemed very funny to see all the shops open on Sunday. We were marched through the streets on Sunday afternoon. On Monday we went well out into the country, stop- ing at a village. Here we held a sort of military sports, with the na- tives taking active part. Sides were picked and a game of football played. We had the natives, both men and women, racing and fighting for 1d. prizes, and altogether, I don't think I have ever enjoyed myself so much. During the afternoon I met three little Australian girls, and they kept with me for the rest of the da...
Tempy Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 August 1916
Tempy TopIcs. We find the monotony of the pre- sent period of the year nice!y broken with social sport. On Friday last the footballers traveled to Speed to play the return match. There was a big and enthusiastic crowd present and victory rested with Speed, the scores being 2.6 to 1.8. Good form was shown for the winners by Re- gatz, M'Arthur and G. Speed, while Ritchie and Fraser were the best for Tempy. The players ;are looking forward to the trip to Ouyen on Wednesday next, all the best of them having decided to visit your town. Our tennis players go to Speed on Saturday to try conclusions with the home racquetters, and as solid prac- tice has been indulged in, a good game is anticipated. While out for a pleasure drive 0n Sunday week Mr. and Mrs. E. Har- rison and T. Harris and ,Miss An- drews, all perched in a gig, bouncing over mallee stumps and singing songs of the war, had a rather sudden stop when the axle of the gig broke and let them all on to the road. No one was hurt. The...

Needs Inquiry. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 16 August 1916
Needs Inquiry. "Victim No 8" writes from Walpe up, under date 14th. inst.:-Sir,-I desire to draw the attention of the Shire Council to a neglected source of revenue. I refer to the pound at Walpeup, an institution lately brought into existence by Private En terprise, and judging by the snlphu rous language heard in connection therewith, it does not appear to be giving general satisfaction. The pro cedure adopted by the gentleman run ning the show (he owns a block ad joining the reserve) is, in the opinion of the surrounding settlers, altogether over the odds, although they all agree that his methods are delightfully simple, and as the following tariff will show, fairly profitable:-fHorses 4/, milking cows up to 5/6-no che ques taken. The position in this con nection is that if a settler allows a head of stock to greaze on the reserve, this individual, having removed the wire from his fence, thus leaving his crop unprotected naturally finds the stock in his paddock, and being a law u...

Victorian Farmers' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 16 August 1916
Yictorian Farmers' Union. \We have received from the execu tive committee a rescript of the busi ness done at last meeting. In last issue we republished what the "Ar gus" saw fit to give of that meeting, but the minutes sent us give a bit more-and we do not wonder at the "hundred eyed"' refusing it publica iiop, despite the fact that it is in the plce where it is demanded of consci ence to speak the truth. In reply to Mr. Robeitson, of Roke wood, the secretary said Mr. Stewart was organizing in the Mallee with good results. The matter of opening a central of fice in Melbourne (why not Geelong, or Ballarat--they're just as central), with a permanent secretary, was re ferred to the conference. Mr. Hart alluded to the difficulties and expense in organizing work, and also to the correspodence that had ap peared recently in the "Argus." He complained that his last letter, wrlt ten ten days. ago, had been suppres sed by the "Argus." Hie had seen the subeditor of the paper, but had got no ...
