The shops of the !iown closed at six o'cloc/'c on New Year's eve, and the main street was almost in darkness. There fore, when the new year 'di:I ;o.r.e there was not much excitemcnt. The fire bells rang, the Band pla yed a few selections, an eng'nc iX the station began to whistle, and a few dogs to bark, and as each Iwished the o:her a "happy new year," there wa? little to indicate I that another year had been born, [and an old year passed into li's tory. A few youths, for the want of something better to do, pulled down some ot the tradesmen's shutters, thus making ir.ore work for the po'ice, who put them up again. At the Metho...

THE CO-OPERATIVE MOVEMENT. BUTTER INDUSTRY. PROPOSED FACTORY AT BOOLARRA. Boolarra farmers are tliinking of establishing a co-operative butter fac tory at Boolarra, or devising a scheme whereby they could join in, on a work able basis, with the Mirboo North company. The matter was discussed by a meeting of about 30 farmers on Monday. Mr St. Ellen (chairman of the Mir boo Company) Mr Graham (the mana ger) and Mr Wilson (the manager of the Gippsland and Northern Co-opera tive Selling Co.) were present, and explained matters to the meeting. Mr Wilson said it was unfortunate that there should be such a fine stretch of country' from Boolarra to Morwell without a co-operative factory. There had been one at Yinnar, but after years of struggling it had been sold to a private company. There was a broader aspect than this as eo-opera tion did not begin and end with local failures. The ' co-operative concern could work just as economically as the proprietary could, and turn out just as good a ...
