Tihe oil paintings prcsented by Miss L. Anderson, the proceeds of which are to go towards comforts for the Westert Aastra lia3 wornded soldiers, and realised £20. were drawn at Brennan Bros. on Saturday, the lucky winner being Miss Alcock, of Dangan?street (No. 100). Miss Anderson wishes to think Messrs. Sands and Mac Dougall for the printing of 400 tickets, and Messrs. Brennan Bras. an4c Wasloy iros. for exhibiting them, and the many who assisted in the sale of tickets RESULT OF PRODUCE SALES. Many country dorcrs of goods for sale for the Sick and Wounded Soldiers' Fund are desirous of knowing what prices their gifts realised. Mr. John Rbinsn and
Foreman Jones, who undertook the receipt .and disposal of the goods, desire it to be known that it is impossible to furnish a detailed list of the paces realised, bat they assure the contributors of produce, poultry, etc., that everything sent was sold at quite 25 per cent. above market rates. The re salt, as anosunced in Pridy's I ' was £233 10s. 4d., which was handed to th secretary of the fp?nd on Thursday by Mr. Robinson OSBORNE PARK. The n eeting of the concert committee and the Western Australia Day committee took place on Wednesday evening last Mr. W. G. Edwards presided, and, owing to the inclemency of the weather, there was only a small attendance. The secretary reported thas he was unable to give' the final resplt of the concert, owing to the' tickets not ?eing all in. The sale of prodao and live stock at the Producers' Markets, he had been told, brought £11 3s, and it had been forwarded to the Rev. G. B. Wheatley. He had been unable to get a detailed state. ment, but he would endeavour to see the manager, and get it for the committee. He could not say whether the articles sent to the Town Hall had bets sold or not, as the secretary of the auction habed not the com pleto lets yet. The cash collections had been ,increased by Mr. E. Guthrie's col lection, £3; Mr. Harry Haines's auction of a few fowls, £1 5s.: Mr. J. S. Collins, 12s. 6d.; Mr. W. Rail, 10s. 6d.; making-a total of cash collected, £52 7s. 11d. JANDAKOT. Owing to the inclenent weather the aeution sale in aid of the Western Aus tralia Day Fund which Was to have been held in the Jaidakot Agricultural Hall on the 31st ult., has been postponed until Saturday, August 14 yURRIN MURRIN. Residents of Murrin Murrin and Eala minna raised £150 for the wounded soldiers' fund by means of a euchre party and col lections. GRASS VALLEY. On Western Australia Day a house-to house canvasy was made, and in the even ing a euchre party and'dance followed, to augment the tunds. Taking ito considera tion the inclemency of the weather and the fact that only a short time had elapsed since a vigorous and highly successful can vass of the district was carried out on be half of the Belgian Fund, the response was extremely gratifying--the funds benefiting to the extent of £55. An enjoyable even ing was spent, keen interest being taken in the euchre tournament. The valuable and well-choses prizes were kindly present ed by Mrs. F. R. Walsh, of Longfield. The winner of the ladies' prize, a silver photo frame suitably inscribed, was Miss May Thackrah. The tobacco-pouch fell I to the lot of Mr. Butler. In distributing the prizes, the honorary secretary (Mrs. O'Brien) congratulated the winners, and alluded to the duty of all to give goner cusly and persevere in their efforts for the financial support of the Red Cross Society. Mr. Weight submittdd the various articles for sale. T+ riefreshmcnts were dispensed by a band of willing workers. In connec tion with the preparation of the grain shed, generously lent by Mr. F. Rowe, Messrs. Simpso3l. Douglas, Matthews, and Dufall, and Master Havelock Weight, again proved that no task is too arduous for them when the cause is a worthy one. Subjoined are the receipts and expendi-I ture:-Per Miss Martin (List A), £8; per Mesdames Breeze and Rourke (List B). £7 9s.; per Mrs. J.

GREENBUSHES. A semni-final meeting of the Western Aus tralia Day committee was held on Tuesday night last, when it was determined to close the fund. The total amount for the district, including Mr. F. A. Moss's collec tion of £50, and that by the timber mill residents, per Messrs. P. Colston and A. Hayles, of £24 17s., promises to net nearly £340. QUAIRADING. Although Tuesday evening last was very wet and uninviting, a large meeting was held in the local hall to receive the report and balance sheet of the Western Aus tralia Day effort made under the anspice of the Avon Roads Board, in which are in cluded Dangin and Quairading, as the main centres, and several smaller sub-centres. Mr. T. Richards (chairman of the Roads Board), presided. The balance sheet, al ;though .incomplite, -evealed a veritable tribute to the generosity of the residents I of these districts, especially when the dis astrous crop failure of the past year is I taken into onsideration. and
Quairading each worked with their sur rounding districts to the. same end, and the returns trom these places were £280 a;.d £264 respr-ct'vely toltallmng £44 ap proximately, and as about £12 to £14 will be'added to the Quairading total, the finral total should be about £560. So far as the Quairading effort itself is concerned, a special meed of praise is due to -Mr., J. B. Harris, the local se?retary, whose indefati gable efforts and enthusiasm couited large ly m ensuring success. Mr. A. B. Gilletti made a sldefdid auctioneer, and materially added to ,he final result. The ladies bore their full share in the arduous work in volved, pnd Mrs. Ashworth especially is to be commanded for good work unselfishly performed. _' " BROOK'TION. On the night of the 30th ult. a success ful auction sale was conducted by Mr. Roy C.awford, in aid of the Sick and Wounded Soldiers' Fund. The lots submitted in cluded horses, sheep pigs, poultry, cereals, and vegetables o. all kinds, for which the bidding was very spirited. A social, which was well attended, followed. As a result of the effort, it is expected that £300 will he forwarded to the eaecutive in Perth. PINGELLY. i A most successful Western Australia Day effort took place on Friday, July 30, in aid of the Sick and Wounded'Soldiers' Fund, when aun ation sale of gifts, comprising bags of chaff wheat and oats. poultry, cakes. and titer goods, took place. The auction was preceded by a procession of de onrated vehicles and individuals in fancy dress, and proved, owing to the many parti' cipants, an elaborato and picturesque affair. The brass band, all uniformed, led the way, playing patriotic airs: Mr. F. Phillips act ing as staffbearer. Then came Mr. R. J. Poarson's nicely decorated car, the owner wearing a garrison artilleryman's uniform and acting as aide-de-eamp to Mr. W, If. Perrin, who acted as "governor" for the day. Behind were seated two "Gollywogs" in the persons of Messrs. R. H. J. Camm and A. B, Robinson. This car was fol lowed by some 14 motor cars, all more or less decorated to represent Britain and her Allies. Mr. Barrow's car was decked out to represent. an' Australian submarinri, whilst Mr. McBurney's car represented H.M.A.S. Sydney. Mr. Walker's car car ried the Belgian colours, and little Eileen Langley looked a pretty picture seated in her father's car dressed as "Britannia." The best dressed car was that belonging to and driven by Mr. W. E. Brownless. This contained profuse decorations of red, white and blue. with the Allies' colours in frgnt, large flags at each corner, and with large pictures of King George adld Queen Mary in front, underneath being displayed a pic ture of an Australian soldier over the words "For Freedom." Some excellent drawings of guns and munitions were cleverly exe cuted on each side by Miss Phyllis Brown less. After the cars the school children fol lowed, persons in fancy dress attending. During the procession the streets were crowded with sightseers, who came from the surrounding district. After a fancy dress football match had been contested, an adjournment was made to the exhibit shed, when an auction sale of gifts was conduct ed, the bidding being very spirited. In the evening a concert, which was largely attended, was held in the institute, when an excellent - programme was contributed by the Glee Club, the Misses Ivy Sewell and Brenda Smith, Miss Ward, Dr. W. J. Lang ley, Miss Madge Thompson. Miss Waldeck, Messrs. H. Permain R. Little. Spashett, A. B. Robinson, and R. Camim, Mr. Parker, Miss 'Monger, the'Misses Beryl Rewell and Kathleen White, and Miss Ward. Miss Ivy Sewell acted as accompanist to the Glee Club, and Mr. H. Permain was the conduc: tor. The duties of accompanist to other contributions were performed by the Misses Ivy Sewell and lrenda Smith. It is ex pected that as a result of the effort on Western Australia Day the proceeds will reach £350. CLACKLINE. The social and sale of gifts in aid of the Western Australia Day Fund organised by the scholars of Clackline School, and sup ported by the local progress asspciatiou, proved to be the most successful affair in Clackline. The people from'far and near, in addition to sending valuable gifts, came, armed with silver bullets, which they fired off in quite a reckless and patriotic fashion. Among those who contributed largely to the success of the undertaking were the school children's committee--Masters C. Grant E. Jones. and L. Mclvcr. and Messrs. Bloomfield. Hoy and Sinclair. The total proceeds amounted to £22 Is. 8d. In appreciation of the efforts of the school children Mesdames West and Hughes do nated a cheque for 10s. to the school fund.

The spec tators had plenty of amusement and con tributed well towards.the funds. A fancy dress football match was followed by. a tug of war "Townies v. Cockies," which caused great excitement. After a very even pull for 15 minutes the farmers showed their superiority in muscle by gaining a slight advantage. The losing team paid a shilling a head into the fund. Various other sports were indulged in until the auction sale was commenced, when the gifts of the residents were disposed of at a very fair price. A feature of the afternoon was the afternoon tea provided at a reasonable cost by the ladies under the leadership of Mrs. MgKie. In the bvening a social was held which considerably augmented the total proceeds. Musical items were render ed by Mrs. Disher, Mrs. Smith, Mr.' 0. Glidden, and the school children, and numerous sideshows contributed to the en joyment of thd evening and to the swelling of the funds. The result of the day finan cially was the iaisiig of over £100, which will be slightly increased when all the money has been collected. BMECKERING. On Western Australia Day fine weather prevailed at Meckering. A large crowd wit nessed the procession in fancy dress through the town. Sports were held in the after noon on the reserve. In the evening the hall was crowded when the Messrs. Choncy auctioned the goods donated to the fund. The net proceeds of the day will total some where about £350. TRAYNING. Thouglhthe day proved the wettest and stormiest of the winter, a large number of people turned out to attend the concert and dance, and so enthusiastic and patriotic was everyone that the fund will benefit by about £60, including £12 already forwarded. Messrs. Bean Bros.' and B. Mercer's dona tions were much appreciated. SMITH'S MILL. The efforts of the people of Smith's Mill in aid of the sick and wounded soldbrs re suited in a sum of £60 6s. 9¢d. being added to the funds.

The concert and auction held at Spear wood recently in aid of the Western Australia Day Fund realised over £40. The final returns are not yet to hand, but so far £42 has been paid in to the Roads Board secretary. The weather was too rough to enable the performers engaged to jour ney to Spearwood, but Mr. and Mrs. Lea Bolt and Baby Smith, with local talent, contributed a short programme. The chair man, Mr. J. F. Allen, M.L.C., delivered a short address on Florence Nightingale, and Mr. W. A. Murphy conducted the auction sale, which included in the 100 lots sub mitted a frunit dish purchased at a similar auction held in Cork City after the Franco Pru. ian war.
