Seed Wheat Rebates. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 8 September 1915

Seed Wheat Rebates. Right on top of our article in our issue of the 25th ult., Mr. A. S. Kenyon, chairman of the Mallee Relief board, visited the town. He met some of the councillors, and gave a very satisfactory explana tion of the whole thiig. He ad. mitted that it was hard on those who paid cash for their wheat, but said the proportion in this district was so small that to give the re bates to them would mean that about L15,000 would be lost to the district. The reason of this is that while it was stated in the papers some time ago that the rebate would be about 2/ per bushel, it will only be about half that. Those who paid cash for wheat are mosldy the] wealthier WJimmnera,Goulburn Val Iev and Western District farmers. Others again (and this will hurt) are those who went to banks and life assurance companies for assist ance, and these are in the same boat--no rebate. There is to be no fixed rebate per bushel, but on the capital outlay, and this will be about 15 per cent. The man...

Walpeup Red Cross Society. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 8 September 1915

Walpeup Red Cross So- ciety. The shire namesake town (or is it the town that gave the shire the name?) let itself go last Friday night week. People flocked from far and near to see what was going on, and when they got there, found a lot of stray shillings to spend. It was a concert, fancy fair, sale of gifts and jumble all in one and really, when the fun began, the concert portion might almost have been left out, for other matters occupied the attention of the crowd. Still it was good, and excepting   that someone almost invariably stoushed the Kaiser (or his effigy) just when a song was on, the per- formers were well received. The gifts were many and useful, and the buyers were many and gener- ous. Small wonder the affair was a success. It is confidently expec- ted that when everything is settled there will be close in the vicinity of £60 wherewith to buy comforts for the soldiers, or material where with to make them. And yet, it is only a few short months ago since we...

The Pops. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 8 September 1915

The Pops. The Scotsmen put up the record on Friday last, when the hall was simply packed. The affair was marred by a late start, it being af- ter 9 o'clock before Mr. W. Steele entered the hall preceded by two pipers. But from that out until long after 11 the audience was kept amused, and showed appreciation by frequent encores. There were pipe items by Messrs. M'Kinnon, Cunningham, and Scott; songs by Mrs. Rees and Mrs. Gillespie, Misses Irwin and Pattinson, Messrs Vines, Valentine, and Bob. Harris; duets by Mr. Valentine and Mrs. Rees, and Messrs. Vines and Le Couteur; instrumental items by Mrs. Fred. Jones, Mrs. Remfrey, and Mr. Rees; recitations by Mr. Beer, and a dance by Miss Kynes-   ley. Mr. Steele made a stirring speech, and Mr. E. Williams spoke as one going into camp that night. During the interval, a cake dona- ted by Mrs. Ingwersen was drawn for, realising £3 6/; it was donated again by Miss M'Queen (the win- ner) and brought another 12/6; a knife box broug...

PTE. H. GRACE. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 8 September 1915

PTE. H. GRACE. If you never did before, you must now begin to realise what the war means. Above we give Henry Lawson's forecast, written 30 years ago. What a history we are mak- ing, but at what a cost. And we sought none of it. It is hard in a community like ours to have to re- port two victims to the ambition of a madman, and to learn of others being wounded, simply because they wanted to keep the rule they were born under, and under which they had hoped to rear their chil- dren. But so it is. Briefly, last week, we told of the death of Hugh Grace, and not one of our readers, we hope felt other than sympathy for the bereaved parents and rela- tives. Just in the first bright flush of manhood - not yet 26 years of age - Hugh Grace went into camp at Broadmeadow's just before last Christmas. A few weeks later he sailed with reinforcements for the Light Horse Brigade, and then, transferred to Infantry, went to the Dardanelles, and the soldier's grave. Ever an athlete, Hughie was just t...

Local And General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 15 September 1915

Lccal Rnd General. There are in every community those who are only too ready to believe the worst they hear, and hearing it, have no compunction in repeating it, with details drawn from their imagination, which do not lessen the evil. Some most scanda!ous stories of our Austra lian soldiers at the front have been spread, and as stated, have lost nothing by repetition. The Oryen Recruiting Committee are not con tent to let any such slanders go unchallenged, and it is asked that anyone hearing any adverse re ports, first of all ask the informant for the basis of his talk, and if there is any chance of sifting it, then hand it to any member of the committee, who may be relied on to do the rest. There is quite enough in the shape of shells and bullets for the man who went to contend with without the tongue of blander of the man who stayed at home. Walpeup shire council advertis es a contract on the Timberoo road. This ought to suit someone looking for work. Settlers out west will be int...

Hurry Along, Please. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 15 September 1915

Hurry Hueng, Please. Not so many years ago it was airmed by a responsible head of the Railway department that the only use the extension of the line from Vloomelang to Mildura would be put would be to brimg; away the last disgusted settler when be had expended his last ounce of energy and his last penny of capital. An apt reply to this was "Don't pro phesy unless you know." That official dd not know what we know today. '??'e are probably disgus ted settlers in Mildura, just as there are disgusted merchants in Melbourne, but they are not getting out unless at a profit. But leav ing Mildura out of the question : Branching out from that line so superciliously spoken of at that time, we already have a branch some S7 miles in length. In the near future another branch is to run out from Speed. Unless the Dame is more unreliable than usual, at least two more branches are projected, so the prophecy was a bad one that far. It is impossible to deal with the future, so far as those branches ar...

True Patriots All. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 15 September 1915

I rae Patriots Ai. [BY rAIJ3S.] How often have you heard that we must put down the Hun; we must let him see that might is not right; we must stick to our fiag; we must fight it to a finish; we must do something for Belgium; we must see to the comforts of our solliers. This is the boast (more i- the pity, as someone said of Von I Mackensen) of a Briton and heard every day in discussing the present crisis. These men's patriotism is verbally deep. They can see that men and money are wanted; but touch him on the pocket question for any of the current benefiit con certs or functions, and see how quickly he will find the dread words "I can't." Then again there is the other parasite: "Oh, we are strong enough for two Ger many's; England has nothing to fear : it is only a matter of time. There is no need of all this rush of men and money." That is what hampered Nelson, Blake and oth ers in their day, and Oh ! you pow ers that be, don't let it hapnen in our day; don't let our boy at the fron...

In Memoriam. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 15 September 1915

In M~emoriam. ---->»--- A well-liked lad now lies at rest Hard by old Pharoah's ancient nest, A modest youth, one of the best In Austral lands. Whose courage well withstood the test Midst armid bands. No more his genial smile we'll greet, No more we'll meet him in the street, No more he'll feel the dust and heat Of Ouyen town, Since to that land of promise sweet His spirit's fown. SMurn him, ye friends who know Si: story,; Mourn him ye winds now wild and show ery, And earth's green mantle, gay and flowery Ye needs must mourn, Since by the foeman's weapons gory He's from us torn. Mourn him thou great and glorious sun, Mourn stars and planets every one And meteors flashing like a gun, For Leo mourn, Since through your azure blue he's gone Ne'er to return, Mourn feathered songsters in the tree, Mourn him ye plants now fair to see, And wild flowers waving prettily On fiat or hill; Mourn him who most untimely Is cold and still. May I lose power of sight and speech, and stretch on ruin...

Great Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 15 September 1915

Great 'Weather. Once more the optimist scores. Less than a week ago the pessi mist was at it. "If we don't :et rain within a week, we are up the pole." The optimist smiled. He had heard that story so often, but somehow, that rain came. In any case, he argued, why meet treu:Lle half way? It gets there wit hout one running along the track to L meet it. And so it is with the I weather. A few days' dry spell t and we at once get the crying in dividual with the dry rag. (A wet one would be of some use, so he uses the dry one). We had a I couple of samples of dust last week, the second about 4p.m. on Friday, but it was quite a short cue. And it didn't matter much, anyhow, be cause right on top of it rain com menced. There is no more criti cal time in the life of the wheat plant in Victoria than September, and this year those without faith were pointing to the dryness of the opening daysof the month, but as usual. spoke out- of- . their turn.

Among those who cannot go to the war there are some enthusiasts, and a new site for courts has been laid out on the west side hill, where permissive occupancy, similar to that enjoyed by the Golf Club is being sought. At a well attended meeting on Monday night, it was decided to form a club, and office-bearers as follow were appointed :-President Mr. A. W. Cooper, J.P. ; vice-pre- sident, Mr. S.
