NEWSTEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 28 January 1914

XEW'STEAD. The harvest throughout this district has not yielded in accordance with ex pectations. At the beginning of the •season the crops were looking well, and although the dry weather that set in subsequently interfered somewhat wiih growth, it was thought that the yield would be up to the average. By appearance, the crops before harvest operations were commenced looked and were judged to be equal to eight or nine bags to the acre, whereas in the majority of yields the result was from three to four bags, and only in one or two instances did the yields average eight bushels. The decrease was more noticeable whore the several areas have been under crop continu ously for the past forty years, and worked without resorting to the aid of artificial manures or other ground feeding. 'Lands that hare Tjeen used for grain producing this season were found to give better results, on account of being comparatively new ground, although of inferior quality ;o :he lands that have this year give...

DISTRICT CORRESPONDENCE ELPHINSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 28 January 1914

DISTRICT CORRESPONDENCE ELiPHJ.YSTONE. The weather during the past week! has been very oppressive and culmin ated on Sunday evening with a thun derstorm. Very little rain fell here, but it cooled the atmosphere. All vegeta tion is dried up except where the wat er is in use from the channel, and all milch cows that are not artificially fed have gone off their milk 60 per cent., as well as failling away in their condition. The bush fire fiend has dealt lightly with this district so far, and it is to be hoped that it will do so for the remainder of the summer. The residents here have been 'lucky in com ing on the fires that broke out before they got a hold. .Messrs. Hansford and Talbot have completed their contract for erecting an addition to the Mechanics' Institute in a workmanlike manner. It will be a great convenience to the committee, as well as the public.

GOVERNOR GENERAL SACRIFICES SUGGESTED. SUCCESSOR UNKNOWN. MELBOURNE, Tuesday .Members on both, sides of the Federal Parliament to-day expressed regret that Lord Denman intended to resign the position ol Governor General of Australia. Though His Excellency's decision had "been known for some weeks to the Prime Minister, no other member had an inkling, of it, and the regret was all the more • pronounced by reason of the fact that Lord Denman is held in the highest esteem, by mem bers of different political opinions. Had the closing of Go.v eminent House, Sydney, anything; to do with the decision of the Governor-Gen eral ? was a question frequently asked in Federal political circles to day. Some members took the view that it might have had some little weight in the consideration of the -testion whether their Excellencies would remain another two years to complete the term for which Gover nors-General are usually appointed.
