A QUESTION BOX. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 14 August 1915

A QUESTION BOX. To the Editor of the Express. Dear Sir,-Slithering through the celebrated "Drainage Schleme" at Tullamore, I sat on a paper, which contained the following questions, that might be answered' by our De bating Society, at its next meeting: 1. Did: Bacchus Marsh benefit or suffer by the drought? 2. Does the Victoriian Government believe in "Preference to Wealthy" ? 3. Why' is: it possible for a wealthy man, owning hundreds of acres of rich irrigated lucerne land, and hundreds of sleek dairy cows, to purchase cheap Government fodder, while the "cocky" loses his stock, and cabmen, vanmnen, and contractors feed their horses on sand and sawdust?-Yours, &C., PERPLEXED. [The latter is a question that might very well be referred to a body with more standing than a Debating Society. Complaints have been made to us of farmers selling their own lucerne hay at £11 per ton, and buying for their own use from the Government at £7/10/. It was never intended that the impor ted f...

KILLING THE CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 21 August 1915

* KILLING THE CAR. It is a fine thing to be able to climb a hill on high gear--.if the car will do it without bringing the engine down so that it labors and can just barely stagger along. If your car won't take a hill on high gear easily, don't try to do it; come down to the low gear and add a little to the life of the machine. Isn't it a whole lot better to have people say "Jones has had his car four , years and. its running as smoothly as when he got it," than "Jones can climb Skyhigh hill on high, gear," and have the machine ready for the bone yard the second year ? Another thing. You often see a driver shoot up to the place where hI 'wants to stop, and come to a standstill with a sudden fierce appli cattion of the brakes. What's the use? Maybe you cut a bit of a dash, and it looks flashy; but it would sur prise you by figuring out what it costst you in hard cash in the way of: worn brakes, wrenching strains tliroughout the car and in tire wear especially. and emphatically tire w...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 21 August 1915

A COMMONWEALTH Income Tax is to be imposed. We think it will have to be supplemented by a self as sessed and self collected Wealth Tax, paid by revenue stamps, minimum 2/6, in return for which each elector would receive an electoral passport as a receipt. This would do away with all the expensive Electoral rolls. As the electoral passport wal presented to the Returning Officer for a ballot paper lhe would stamp it with the date of the elec tion. THE continual indefiniteness of the war news adds to the horrors of the situation. Humanity has to take refuge in a Buddhist nirvana or a Russian witchivo. - Messrs. J. K. Jennings & McInnes will hold a Parade, and conduct a Horse Sale, at Sunbury, on Thursday, September 9th. See advertisement. Horse Salo at Bacchus Marsh on Monday, 13th Sept.

BACCHUS MARSH. By W. WIuLIAMs, B.A. No. 50. I enter on 1872. A poet, Thomas Bracken, probably not the. New Zea land author of that delightful poem, "Not Understood," is quoted: Our fields- are fair: our flowers rare; our forests ever green; On every hand, o'er, all the =land, the Master's mark is seen. A fruitful soil for those who toil, and work for all to do; Then let us cry, "Thank God on High," and welcome seventy two. - Coimadai in its infancy. Jan. 13, 1872. Mr. W. Bennett has comple ted a new hotel at Coimadai, which is truly an ornament to the locality, supposing it is admitted that such buildings ever are ornaments. , It is built of brick, with freestone fac ings, and contains - ample accommo dation for visitors. The- landlord expects to have boarders from.Mel bourne, and elsewhere, who wish to (have a few weeks' sojourn in a quiet place; and certainly he has good reason to. expect such customers, as the locality, althougIh perfectly se cluded, is :quite near to Melbourne, ...
