GENERAL NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

GENERAL NEWS Alderman Bracey, at the last meeting of the Lithgow Municipal Council , made a generous offer of half-a-soverelgn towards the cost of a work, the council considered they had no legal right to use the ratepayer's money for. Who will follow the lead? The Oberon Shire Council is in a fortun ate position. At the last meeting it was decided to place £500 at fixed deposit in the bank for six months to tide over the lean portion of the year. The Chief Secretary is of opinion that there is plenty of police protection in the Porte's Retreat police district without re establishing the police station. The district named is within the Oberon Shire. The Oberon Shire Councillors have de cided to prepare a roll of honour, contain ing the names of those who have gone to the front with the Australian Expeditionary forces from that district. 'There is a credit balance of £1308 4s. Id., in the general fund of the Oberon Shire Council, and £340 in the Trust Fund. It is hoped the Councillor...

A BRAVE BOY. A TALE OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

A BRAVE BOY. A TALE OF THE SEA. (By William Irvine.) It was a black night; a black nor-easter was working its wicked will in the harbour of Holyhead, as we steamed into it on board the Rattan in November 1878. Blinding rain poured pitilessly down. The whole of the magnificient expanse of water was a seething, mass of foam, and as we rounded the inner heads the roar of the surf hard by was ominously distinct. Under tne skii l'ul guidance of our skipper however, we landed safe and sound, and hiring a villan ously broken-down vehicle, the best I could find, I enjoined the driver to deposit me at the door of the best Hotel to be found in Holyhead. Having satisfied myself, at length, that I had secured me good quarters $[ and having done justice to an excellent j| dinner, I bent my steps in the direction of H where I was due: i.e. a Literary Instltu M (ion where I was to do my best to enter ffl \tain an extremely select company of young M men.

THE BELGIANS. EVEN THE SICK AND MARRIED AID AID THE BELGIANS. Two little lads, inmates of the local hos pital, viz., Jacky Smith who was suffering from enteric fever, and Jacky Bryce, suffer ing from injuries through a motor accident, were given a money box, and they made the most of the opportunities presented, and 'bailed up' everyone for something for the Belgians. The result was that 6s was raised for that deserving object. What a lesson for us who are well. We understand the proceeds were given to the public schools' effort. A Question of Taste. — Mr. and Mrs. Willey were having a quarrel. 'But you must remember,' said the hus band, 'that my taste is better than yours, Alice.' 'Oh, yes, undoubtedly, Arthur,' replied the wife, 'when we come to remember that you married me and I married you.'

SOME PASSING THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

SOME PASSING THOUGHTS. The distressing news on Saturday last, of the death at the Dardanelles of Private James — a Lithgow native — and others of our local volunteers being wounded, brings the present disastrous war very close home. It fores us to realise to the full extent seriousness of the struggle, and to admit the great national part the Australians soldiers — the Lithgow and district young men — are playing in the World War. A war such as this is no child's play, and we must naturally expect a big casuality list among the brave men taking part in it. All the Allied forces are display- ing the greatest bravery, but the enemy is in such numbers and has prepared for the battle with so much cunning forethought, that more and more men will be needed to crush him effectively. Australia is giving of her best in a generous and patrio- tic spirit that is characteristic of the race from which she has sprung, and it is safe to say that if the Empire calls for more and still more men, She...

LOCAL CELEBRITIES NO 1.-HIS WORSHIP THE MAYOR, ALD. PILLANS, J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

NO 1. HIS WORSHIP THE MAYOR, ALD. PILLANS, J.P. It is not the good fortune of every man to be born with a silver spoon in his mouth, or even to take his place on the road of life in any way equipped to face its battles with more than a small chance of securing but a modicum of success. And yet there are numberlesss instances of the men who are handicapped in the greatest degree at the commencement of their life's career achieving its biggest successes. These instances form some of   the brighest pages in our history, and doubtless their number will continue to be added to as time goes on. At the present time we have in our Parliaments — both Federal and State — leaders who started life in the humblest possible way, and matter of education, and also in other directions, to do more than battle   on for a living, except by hard man   ual labour. But by the application   of their natural talents in the di rection of improving themselve...
