RECRUITING RALLY. Gilg'andra attended in force the recruiting r*ally held in 'front of the Royal Hotel on Friday evening last. The band was in' attendance, and dis coursed a splendid ■ programme of: music. Mr. P. J. MoManus occu pied the chair. The first speaker was Captain Spring, of Gulgong rifle club, who who has been appointed organising - ; secretary of the Kookaburra route march. The speaker drew attention * to the necssity of the young men without- responsibility enlisting and' going to the front to do their duty. He pointed out the dire need of the nation at the present juncture^ and asserted that unless men enlisted in numbers there was a probability of the nation losing its liberties, and being ravaged and violated by the foe. Corporal McQueen, who recently spoke here, made a powerful appeal for recruits, and said that if j'oung men, who were able, and would not I enlist, would, in all probability, be 1 conipelled to do so. 1 Both appeals were unsuecessi ul,' j not one man...

Surgeon-General Howse, V.C. j What a record for a New South Wales country doctor I Yet I verily believe lie does not care much about "his decoration for valor. Aud I am quite certain that he does not care twopence about the Surgeon-General and the C.B. Howse should never have been a doctor. His taste is for fighting. At anyrate, if he does not take advan tage of the fact that he is_ a doctor. He saw fight in South Africa, m Ger man New Guinea, and m Galhpoli, ■where he still is. Yet although he is a non-combatant, he will not wear a non-combatant's badge. The reel cross, although he should wear it, is not for him.

Her Bir[?]day. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916

Her BifTday. BY Gr. PHYLLIS'- RODOLF. Constance Deane stood® by the "■window"of her lonely'room, looking j -oat on the dreary day, listening idly to the melancholy drip, drip of the j rain that had been falling since early ■morning. J The short afternoon "was drawing! to a close, and already in the dingy ! Loudon streets, lights were breaking "through the mists, but,in' that poor kittle.room was neither light nor fire. ! IPor more than three hours she had j stood there motionless, but at last, with a deep sigh, she tar .ed away from the dreary outlook and went to wards the tireless grate. She was a tall, slight "woman, no longer young, for already many "threads of silver shone in the brown hair, smoothly brushed back from the low, white brow, and there were many liaes of care in the thin face that might have been beautiful in' youth, but whose sole beauty now lay in the black-lashed deep grey eyes. She lighted a candle and surveyed Tierself for a few moments in the 'cracked glass ov...

IS THE FOX A PEST? [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916

Under this caption in its last is- ! sue the Glen Innes "Guardian" pub lished the following:—''Ever since the introduction of the fox to this country, or at all events since be has multiplied his kind to an alarming extent, opinions of graziers and far mers have been considerably divided as to whether his advent has "been a blessing or a curse. He has many friends, as well as implacable ene mies, amongst the men on the land. It was only natural, therefore, that Mr. "Farlow's proposal at the P. P. Board meeting on Priday, to put a price on Reynard's head, had a mixed reception. Testimony seemed about equally divided for the prosecution and the defence, and the proposal was defeated on a division. In the meantime the wily fox is not to be subjected to any organised attempt upon the even , tenor of his way. With such diversity of opinion he is likely to be free for many a day to i come, and who knows that it is but , one more example of the canning which is generally attributed to the ...

AUSTRALIA'S CALL TO ARMS PRIME MINISTER'S APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916

AUSTRALIA'S iLL TO ARMS PRIME MINISTER'S APPEAL, i . :■ - ■■ I T,he Prime Minister (Mr. W. M.. Hughes) has issued the following ap peal. The present state of war impera tively demands that the exercise of the full strength of the Empire and its Allies should be put forth. In this way only can speedy victoi'y be achieved and lasting peace secured If those rights and privileges, for whieh Australian democracy has struggled so long and values dearer than life itself are to be preserved, Prussian military i despotism must be crushed once and for all. The re sources of the Allies are more than adequate for this task, but thtey must be marshalled. To wage this war . with less than our full strength is to commit national suicide by slowly bleeding to death. Our soldiers have done- great things in this war. They have carved for Australia a niche in the Temple of the Immortals. Those who have died fell gloriously, but had the num ber of our forces been doubled many brave lives would hare bee...

LETTERS FROM THE FRONT Private Haghie Tapper -writes from Cairo, to his mother, at Gilgan dra, under date November 23rd, as follows :— Just & Hue to let you know how I am getting o&. We are leaving for the front this week or early next week, and I am very glad we aret because I am sick of thi» place. It is the same thing over and over every day; We are going out on a route march thia evening, so that will be a bit better than running abont in the sand. I went into Cairo last Sunday week and as I was walk ing down the street I saw a crowd of niggers running abont. When I got up to them they had one of tke soldiers down and were nearly kil ling him. I jumped into the middle of them and I let them have the boot as a start. The first punch I let loose I cut my hand open on one of the niggers' teeth and it turned to blood poisoning, but the wound is getting all right now. It is getting very cold hereof a night, and I wish you would knit me a pair of socks and send over. I...

"MARCHING ON TO VICTORY" Air—-"Marching Through Georgia."

Chorus: Hurrah ! Hurrah ! We fight for Liberty! Hurrah ! Hurrah I We'll keep Australia free ! Britain must be Ruler of the Earth, from Sea to Sea, So Wc Go Marching On to Victory !
