fieros. xYerlernen, nee límale., PRINTED - AT - TRAFALGAR Published Thursday Mornings. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22,-1906. KOTES AND COMMENTS. We have just been shown a ven' fine sample of potatoes of the Brownell Beauty variety, grown on Moe Swamp by Mr. J. Nester. 'I bey are all of good size, and well shaped.' It seems almost incredible that such potatoes could be produced from soil that bas had no moisture on it for over two months^ It is "said*that among the cases to be tried at the Moe police court on. 1st March is one of sly-grog selling, from ihorpdale. 'I he police, so it is re ported, made a raid on the premises of a well-known storekeeper, and seized a quantity of liquor consider ably in excess of that allowed by, law. The case is likely to excite a good deal of interest. The Coulter dramtic company will be returning to these parts about the middle of next month with new plays, new scenery, new talent—everything 1 up-to-date. The present company is an exceptionally strong one, an...
SALT THE CIVILISER. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
SALT THE CIVILISER. The use of salt as a necessary sup plement to diet has had much Influence in shaping the civilisation and explora tion of the world. It is most probable that the oldest trade routes were crea ted for the salt traffic, as salt and in cense formed the chief necessaries of tne ancient days. This was certainly the case with the caravan routeB in Libya and the Sahara., whilst the mines of North India were the ceatrc of » large trade before the time of Alexan ^Another interesting fact is that salt has played a considerable part in the distribution oí man. When it became absolutely necessary to him, as it did at an early stage of his development, he was forced to migrate to places where it could be obtained. This brought him to the seashore, where he gained his ideas of maritime com merce. Lastly, the preservative ef fects of salt on flesh-food made long oceanic voyages possible, and thus opened up the world to commerce and civilisation.

ABOUT DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
ABOUT DIAMONDS. Au American writer says:—There Is something singularly fascinating about a diamond. Its perfect clearness, the number of colors that lurk in it, and that are brought out wonderfully by the gaslight, its look of absolute pur ity, and its sharp, fine cuttifl^.aU tend to make it the most beautiful of stones.-»" When a woman is asked the kind of ring, or brooch ,or bracelet she de sires, she is apt to say "a diamond." And, unless she has a great many jewels, this is a wise choice, for the diamond may be worn when colored gems are in bad taste. People have been laughed at for wearing their dia monds at all times and in all places, but the woman of good taste and re fined feelings realises when and where she shall wear her jewels. Diamonds should not be worn in the morning. They should not be worn when a sim ple visit is paid. They should not be worn when one is doing charitable work. They should not be worn when they are likely to attract so much attention that they will ...

FEEDING FOR EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
FEEDING FOR EGGS. Hens kept for egg-production should be so fed that they can produce them. Lime in some form should be provi ded for the production of the shell. Most grains and meals contain some lime, but experience has proved the wisdom of the practice of poultry keepers in feeding sea-shells, old mor* tar, etc., to the fowls. Those fed with snells and supplied with plenty of lime-mortar lay better-shelled eggs, and more of them, than those which have been denied these articles of diet. The white of the egg is albumen, and to produce a large number of eggs the hen ihust assimilate a large amount of albumen. Foods, therefore, which "mmen—lean meats, table ttle linseed meal, oats, and lould be fed. The yolk con .. oil, and Indicates the need carbonaceous food. Indeed, carbon is needed to ¿produce the force necessary to sustained support r hen in manufacturing\her produ Hens fed for _ ' with grain and all the elemêj sary for the support of production of eggs, better than those nish...

UNFORTUNATE MOE SWAMP. To the Editor of the News. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
UX FORTUNA'IE MOE SWAMP. To the Editor of tlie Ncm. Sin—That the Moe Swamp land is some of the finest in the state is well known. '1 he high prices paid by the settlers lor blocks of this land at auction shows the confidence of practi cal men in the productiveness of the soil, as high as £17 2s. 6d. per acre having been paid for land altogether unimproved and only partially drained, although advertised as "re claimed land." The drainage of this swamp has been a series of incomprehensible blundering on the part of the Public Works officials. With a fall of 4ft. to the mile, and a fair knowledge of the volume of flood waters that required to be carried away, it surely was the A.B.C. of engineering to provde suf ficient waterway. But no. Miserably small drains were cut, too small to carry off an ordinary 24 hours rain without overflowing. J be officers of the Public Works department mean while asserting that the drainage was good enough, and that settlers must be expected to be flooded...
THORPDALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
Mr THORPDALE. The continued dry and hot weather is having a disastrous effect on the dairying industry here, and there is a falling off of folly 50 per cent in tbe cream supply. Grass and maize crops present a dry and parked appearance. flier« i«, this season, a large area of land under potatoes, an$ failing a change in the weather, the crops will be vgry light. Bush fires are burning in various parts, and, should we get strong north winds, I aio afraid the results will be veiy disastrous, as, unfor tunately the coalitions »requite as favorrble as at the time of the Dickinson is seriously unwell, and has been obliged to go ay«'ay for a complete rest and chatige of Hr. * The Thorpdulé Cricket- Çlubo' friends, as spectators, patro nised the ball.

NARRACAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
NARRACAN. The committee of the Public Hall have received a cheque for £20 from the Government, being the special grant to the building fund. # The Narracan Tennis Club held aÄ entertainment on Wednesday, 7tJS inst., in aid of the club fund's. There was a fair attendance, the evening being pleasantly spent in dancing, games, etc. The club intend holding a tournament on their court shortly, when members of the four local clubs will be eligible to play. A pleasant change in the weather occurred on Saturday, but so far very little rain has fallen. A good fall is badly needed, as it is safe to say the district never preisen ted such a parched -appearauce as at ¿his time of the year. M -Bro. H. A. Munro, of the local tent, £ Ï.O.R., left on Monday to attend the annual conference of the I.O.R., to be held at Healesville.
His Parting Shot. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
His Partína Shot. Beggin' yer pardon, mum," said the polite cabman, gazing at the shilling which reposed in his palm, "but this sum ain't sufficient to liquidate yer lia bilities. C'rect fare's one-and-six." "Nothing of the sort, my man," snap ped the elderly female standing on the pavement. "The exact distance from the spot where I engaged you is just two hundred yards short of a mile. You cabbies can't cheat me," she con tinued, triumphantly. "I know too much for you. I haven't been riding about in cabe for the last twenty years for nothing!" I "No, mum?" said the Jehu inquiring- ! ly, with his head on one side; "you 1 serprise me. 'Tain't your fault if you 'aven't, mum," he went on, as he gath ered up his reins; "I'll bet you've done your little best."
MOE SWAMP STRIKE. SATISFACTORY SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
MOE SWAMP STRIKE. SATISFACTORY SETTLEMENT. The dispute which resulted in about 20 raen working at Gooding's drain (Aloe Swamp) going out on strike has been patisfactorily settled. The work men are in futuro to receive an increas ed rate of pay per vard on the soil removed; besides which they are to receive a special allowance for certain portions of work done and paid for previous to the dispute, when they were only able to earn from 4s. to 5s. per day by working 10 and 12 hours. This result fully eoufirms our conten tions in a previous issue that the men were being underpaid aud overworked. I The Minister of Public Works (Mi*. Cameron), accompanied by Mr.Catani, C.E., .and several members of parlia ment, ' visited the Swamp last week and made full inquiries into the ! various matters in dispute. They I found that the men had a legitimate I cause, for complaint, the rate of pay I being altogether inadequate to the work performed. Furthermore, that [ha system ui' sn^iervisMii. wad to...
HILL END. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
HILL END. It may be truthfully asserted that troubles never coroe singly, evidenced in the case of Urs A. ÊL Redman, of Hill End. This lady, who suffered through the Jate bush fire, wqb sum moned the morning after the visita tion to the death-bed of her mother, who resided at PorfcPrîrie, South Aus tralia. Mrs Redman immediately eet out on her mournful journey, and after travelling night and day for nearly 1000 miles ehe arrived at her destination—too late, unfortunately, to meet her mother again in this life. Altogether Mrs Red man travelled nearly 2000 miles, and arrived at Hill End last w'eek. The annual sports carnival took place on Wednesday and was un doubtedly the most successful gather ing that has ever taken place in the district. The weather proved fair, and consequently the attendance was large. The sports was a meeting of champions, each in their own respec tive class, and some of the events were worth going a long way to see. Visitors had to suffer some slight in conven...
Must Have Been Bad. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 February 1906
Must Have Been Bad. One of our leading actor-author*man* agers tells the following yarn:— À certain man obtained admittance to a theatre on a free pass. The play was an execrably bad one, and the com pany playing it was even worse. When the curtain fell on the first act, sounds of -marked disapprobation were heard i from all parts of the theatre. The 1 head alone sat quiet, and did not join 4ü£he general storm of disapprobation. 1 AtlÄ&^ßse oí: thesecomu^^—^ feci to«àÈfe-o hisses broke' out disgusted audience. man sat »¿moved. ting in the next seat tumeu co mm and said; "Pardon me, but are you not dis gusted with this wretched play?" "I am, indeed," heartily concurred the deadhead. "Then why don't you signify the same in the usual manner?" "Well, you see, I am ' m here on a free ticket, and as I am getting some thing for nothing I hardly feel justified in expressing my disapproval; but I'll tell you what. If this confounded play gets much worse I'll go to 4he box office and ...
