State Schools Patriotic Fund [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 20 September 1916

State Schools Patriotic Fund After many weeks of strenuous work, the great effort on the part of the district schools eventuated on the 6th, 7th, and 8th insts. That it   would be a success no one could doubt, as the enthusiasm shown by everyone was unbounded, but that, considering the difficult time being experienced, it would result in such a magnificent response can only be classed as surprising. The Queen competition kept the effort in people's minds as perhaps nothing else could have done, while the judicious adver- tising scheme left little to be desired. The Queen competition resulted in the handsome sum of £171 7/3 be- ing gathered by the ladies con- cerned, and the winning Queen, Miss D. Kennedy, richly deserved the honor, for she missed few likely vo- ters either in Ouyen or further afield. Each night the bazasar was opened found our gracious hall all too small to accommodate the crowds who were, or who desired to be, present, but the climax was reached on the...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 20 September 1916

Local and General. The State Rivers and Water Sup- ply Commission has arranged for a surveyor and party to commence within a fortnight, marking out branches from the Ouyen channel now in course of construction. The first line to be run will be to serve Burcell and Wagant. The work on the Ouyen channel is proceeding slowly. The first 12 miles have been let, but only a few teams have so far turned up. Room can be found at occe for many more settlers and their teams. The contracts would each amount to £100 or over. Ap- plication should be made at once to Inspector Crosbie, Ouyen, or Mr Holt, Chinkapook. In consequence of several draw backs, the committee of the Yellum- Jip picnic races and sports arranged for 27th inst., has found it necessary to postpone the fixture for four weeks. Make a note of this-it's worn il while Residents of Ouyen were deeply stirred on Wednesday when it be- came known that Pt . E. Perkins, a brother to the one recently reported wounded, had died of measles in...

Overseas Tobacco Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 27 September 1916

Overseas Tobacco Fund. Christmas boxes for the. boys at the front are being despatched by every transport which leaves these shores. All sorts of good things are in those boxes, but there will be some thing sadly lacking for the man who does not receive a goodly supply of tobacco and cigarettes along with his .Christmas box. The pipe that cheers and -the cigarettes that soothe are two of the things most badly wanted by the men in the trenches. In fact, the Army consumes about £25,000 worth of tobacco and cigarettes per day; and still it wants more. If the supply is to be kept up-and no one would deny the small luxury of a cigarette or a pipe to the men who are fighting for us-every man and wo man must do his or her bic towards providing that supply. For those who would see that the men do not go without a smoke the Southern Cross Tobacco Fund provides excep tional facilities. In order to insure that at least one man shall receive a Christmas box it is only necessary to pay a shillin...

Havinz a few days to put in at Ouyeu and nothing particula;- doing, also a pound or two to sp:re if occa sion arose,I made up my miod to attend a bazaar got iu for the War Relief. On first entering I became aware of a decided color scheme running through the decorations the red white and blue in ail probabi lity being symbolic of the object. The whole stall arrangements and decorations produced a very pleasing picture to a casual visitor like myself. It gave me an opportunity of discove ring that in some parts of the Mallee at least they are decidedly up to date. The display in the hatl reflected great credit on all who assisted to work no this monster bazaar. From the vari ous placards on the stalls I gathered that this was a combined effort of five Malles schools. Judging by appear ances inside the hall I imagine thati the results should be very gratifying to all concerned. On the left as one entered, th...

Quite recently applications were invited for a position in the service of the Emu Bay Railway Coy, of Tasmania.
