STRAY JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925
STRAY JOTTINGS. (By V.J.C.) "VX^AS sitting in the dark, smoking, * in a rat-infested hut near the back of the run one night, and men tally cursing the rats for eating the candles. Hearing footsteps, 1 looked up. Standing in the doorwaw was a ghost-like creature. I quickly slipped a cartridge into 'the gun, and in as steady a voice as I could command 1 called upon the "apparition" to speak. It spoke, and I recognised the voice of oly Jimmy' who was poison ing rabbits on the adjoining run. His clothes, hair, hands, and beard were smeared with pollard and phosphorus, the glow from the latter giving him the ghost-like appearance. As the night was stormy he decided to camp. During the night the rats gave him a hair-cut and a beard trim. I haven't seen a rat in the hut since. Jimmy eradicated tliem in one night.

LAGGAN. (From Our Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925
LAGGAN. (From Our Correspondent). The opening of tlie new Catholic Church at Laggan by his Lordship, Dr. Barry, Bishop o£ Goulburn, on the 21st inst., had to be postponed on ac count of heavy rain and flooded creeks. Showers fell at frequent intervals on Saturday, but it was hoped that the rain would cease 011 Saturday night, and on Sunday morning the creeks were all flooded and rain still falling. Laggan was isolated from Taralga and from Goulburn via Roslyn. Extensive preparations had been made by the Catholics of the district to entertain his Lordship and visitors in a fitting manner, and keen disap pointment was felt that the heavy rain made a postponement unavoid able. When the foundation stone was laid by Dr. Barry it rained incessantly throughout the day. It seems that the Catholics of Laggan are fated to have rain at any official ceremony in con nection with the new shurch. The opening will probably not take place now until the spring.
