No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 2 October 1915
MANY Victorians must be seriously considering whether the Victorian Parliament is worth preserving. It is simply a "cock-shie" for a few Melbourne Pressmen,. who are per petually nagging. The functions of Government have to -be carried on by the heads of Departments. When they intimate that more tax ation is inevitable, then Parliament will have to impose it. The Fed eral Parliament could do that better, for Australia must have money, or be a defaulter to loan indebtedness. Messrs. McPhail Bros. will hold their monthly market at Melton to day, Saturday, 2nd inst. The clearing sale at Toolern Vale on Thursday last, on behalf of Mr. Hugh Campbell, was a most success ful one, high prices ruling for every thing offered.

- TOOLERN VALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) On Saturday evening last, under the auspices of the Toolern -Vale, Progress Association, Mr. Bartle Ryan, M.E., F.L.M.V., gave a most interesting lecture -on. "Underground river systems, and hydro-atmospheric sub-irrigation." It was quite a treat, and those who missed 'it missed something they are not likely, to get again. There was not' a alack moment during the lecture, and con sidering the liability to' drought in this district, it hadl a nqýýhimnportant bearing on the possibilities of irri gation here. Maps, showing the un derground river systems of Aus tralia, gave an added interest to the lecture. Mr. Ryan has travelled the most of Australia, and is well qualified to speak on the subject. After the lecture, a great deal of useful information was elicited by those present by means of questions, and discussion with the lecturer. The monthly shoot of the Gun club was held on Saturday last, under very blowy, conditions. At times the wi...

BACCHUS MARSH DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 2 October 1915
BACCHUS MARSH DEBATING SOCIETY. Owing to the Lerderderg river being unfordable at McKenzie's Flat, the committee have decided to hold the annual picnic at Maddingley Park, this afternoon, at 2 o'clock. All members and friends are cordi ally invited to attend. The ladies will provide refreshments. The principal cause of loss in dairying is the keeping of cows which do not pay for the .food they eat; they have come 6o be known as "lady boarders," and serve their most profitable use when converted into meat and hides. The one way to insure their elimination from the herd is to determirie the yield of each cow by weight of milk, and by the use of the Babcock test for the butter fat content.
MYRNIONG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 2 October 1915
MYRNIONG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDrNT.) The rifle match on Saturday last, between Ballan and Myrniong, re sulted in an easy win for the former.

At the shorter range,, the locals were six points behind their opponents, and this lead was greatly increased at the longer distance. The visitors were hospitably treated to afternoon tea on the range, and altogether a pleasant time was spent. BALLAN. 200 600 Total S. R. Lay .. =-. 33 37 70 E. Walters ..1 ... 33 36 69 A.
