Irish Blight. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 26 November 1910
Irisr^Blight. Tlie "Western Mail" (Warrnam- bool says it is the opinion of Mr jos- eph Knight, Chief Inspector of Ag ricultural produce, that Victolia is on the Verge of a serious shortage of potatoes, owing to the severe dam- age done to the early potato crop in the Western disttict of Victoria by the Irish Blight. The disease has lately been discovered for the first timo in the Warrnambool and Port Fairy districts, It is stated that thc whole of the ordinary crop, which under ordinary circumstances would be ready for market about the end of November, is so badly affected thal it cannot be saved. Thc only hope in regard to the main crop lies in the diligent use of Bordeaux mix- ture, and other preparations. "It appears," says the "Western Mail," "to be extremely probable that as a res ult of the ravages of the disease the quantities available for export will be very much minimised, while it seems tolerably certain that in addition to an entire collapse of the early potato trade for...

He Apologised. The editor of an "out We.-t" naper was sarcastic, it not original. an.I when Major t)JUo was to br appoint- ed mayor, he made the following re- mark in the "Chocktaw Times": - "We can state on good authority that Major Dido will wash himself before he takes over thu duties of mayor." _ Of course, the major was furious, saw the editor, who retracted and promised to apologize in his paper. And so ho did. as follows; - "At the request of the major him- self, we wish to withdraw nur pre- vious announcement, and state that, after all. Major Dido will not wash himself before taking up lils new a ppointment," ".My lazy son has at last decided on a profession that he thinks he'll like." "What has he chosen?" "Ile wants to he a lineman for a wireless company." The world is gradually improving, hut the helter days to come are not likely to ho entered upon unless we prepare for them and help to produce them.

Electrification [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 26 November 1910
Electrification Mr Tait, chairman of thc railway | commissioners, gave some interest inc evidence jesterday before the Royal Commission nppointed to en quit e into the suburban railways and tramways communications mid ttaffic He said that thc tramways required to bc electrified and extended, and it was possible that sooner or later the railways would be electrified. The carly electrification of the rail- ways was not so essential as in thc case of the cable-trams After careful consideration lie had ari ¡ved at the conclusion that it was not desirable for thc tramways to be managed by the Victoiian Hailways Commission- ers The tramways should bc regar- ded as a municipal undertaking Speaking Generally, no further subur- ban railways should be constructed in the near future, and cetlainly not in areas close io Melbourne, because of the high cost of securing the right of way, whereas the tramways could be run along the streets and roads without incuuing any cost in this direction.
