AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 7 June 1878

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. One effect of the extreme moisture of the present season is the rapid growth of self-sown crops, and this is the occasion of d great perplexity to farmers who have no e stock to eat such crops down, and in conse quence of the late drought the number of farmers who are in this position is by no means small. We heard of a case the other day of a farmer atKalkee owns 2000 sheep having no less than five applications at one time from different neighbours for the loan of his sheep to eat their crops down, and in trying to oblige them all the sheep-owner was driven to his wits' ends with their numerous disputes; one complaining that So-and-so was keeping his sheep longer than he ought to, and another that it was his turn next, and so&tIn-lIorsham Times.

WEST MINCHA. June 5, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 7 June 1878

WEST MINCHA.     (FORM A CORRESPONDENT). June 5, 1878. A little girl, about eight years old, daughter   of Mr. Thomas Angus, was severely burned on last Monday morning. Her mother had gone out to milk, and left the little girl to get ready for school, when in taking the kettle from the     fire she somehow fell backwards into the flames, and before she could get out her clothes were in a blaze. She immediately began to   scream, and ran outside, and her brother, a   boy scarcely seven years old, seeing the state   she was in, seized a dipper, and with some           milk that was in a bucket, manfully extin-     guished the flames, but not until her back was     severely singed.   On iast Satuda-l a cr cket rmtch was layed.- ai on thle lincha caliekt gr...

THE ALGAROBA TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 14 June 1878

TIHE ALGAROBAK TREE. Ini describing a ranch at Orangethorpe, the Anaheim Gazette says :-I must not forget to mention the algaroba tree, seven of which are in bearing. Some years ago the editor of the Rural Press informed the farmers of California that he hadin his ollice a supply of algaroba seed which had been imported from South America. IIe offered to distribute this among the patrons of his paper. Mr Metcalf sent for some, planted it, and these trees are the result of the ex periment. This tree, when in full bearing, yields a ton of pads, which are largely fed to cattle in South America and Spain. Pro fessor IIilgard, at recent address before an association of dairymen, encouraged the cul tivation of this tree. HIe especially re commended it as being peculiarly adapted to dry soil which wonld not nrndah,,'a Mlf without rmgation. Is'his tree is closely allied to the carob tree of Spain and Orience.

FIRE AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 14 June 1878

FIRE A"T RICHMOND. At ten minutes to. 4 on Saturday morn ing, a fire broke out at Joseph Kilner and Co's pianoforte factory, in Bosisto street, Richmond. It was first discovered by one of Mr Butler's sons, who observed from his bedroom that a pretty strong light wasburn ing, and he immediately called the attention of his father to it. Fortunately, the Mel bourne Fire Brigade shortly appeared on the scene, andsoonafter the Richmond and other brigades turned up, through whose energetic exertions the adjoining properties were saved from destruction, but the factory was de stroyed with its valuable contents. The stock consistedof twenty-four manufactured pianos and material for over 150 more. This material was more than usually valuable, in asmuch as it consisted chiefly of wood sea soned for ten or twelve years, but by far the most serious loss which Mr Kilner has sns tained was the destruction of the scale, the valuable nature of which is best understood by those engaged in the manufa...
