It would only save 20 chains, and would leave them with two par allel roads. It seemed to him that the old road would meet the cas...

THE DANDENONG BACON FACTORY. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 15 May 1914
THE DANDENONG . BACON FACTORY. (To the Editor). Sir,-Will you kmdlyygrant me space to try and persuade the far mers to be loyal to the Dandenong Co-operative Bacon Factory. We alh know the sort of prices we re ceived for pigs before the factory was built. Since that time the op position has done .its best to try and 'destroy the Dandenong fac tory by paying high prices for pigs -but anyone watching can see very plainly that there is nothing steady about the market. One week the pigs are selling well; the next 'week .there is a. .big drop, which is very unsatisfactory. The co-operative- factory pays a good .price, and whatjis also very impor tant, the expenses on a truck of pigs, which is about 9d per head. This is very different from 6s 9d, which I h~ad deducted from tht last I sent to Melbourne; besides getting fully 15s per head less than the factory at Dandenong would have -paid me. I think the direc tors of both the co-operative but ter factory and the co-operative store, should...

It is well said that "the young &nbsp; may die, but the old must die," The former has been painfully &nbsp; exemplified during the past few days in the death of a promising young girl named Miss. Georgina Dove, daughter of Mr. J. J. Dove, of Tyers. The deceased had filled the important position of cashier at Mr. Mac. Christensen's shop in Traralgon during the past twelve months.

Disease made ra- pid progress, and notwithstanding all that medical skill and good nursing could do, she passed away on &nbsp; Wednesday morning. The deceased was not quite 17 years of age, and resided with her grand mother in Loch Park for the past five years. She was always a bright, studious girl, with a serious temperament. She was the eldest of a family of five, and her l...

81he gonrua. TUESDAY, MAY 19, 1914.. Snagging the River.-Mr. A.G. Futcher, of Tanjil Hills, does not think that it will cost £33,000 to snag the Latrobe, as estimated by the engineers of the Publihe Works department. Mr. Futcher, who has something like two miles of frontage, says that an expenditure of £2 per chain ought to remoie all the snags in the river. Mr. Futcher also estimates that a total of 8000 acres would be benefitted by the snagging, including 1000 acres of Crown land on the fron tage. On Mr. Futchers figures the cost per acre would be Is 6d. The late Mrs. P. O'Brien. r_.here was a very large attendance at the funeral of the late Mrs. P.
