That is, however, an old ,story for anyone who has even a casual knowle' :of the undeveloped resour oes of Victoria-undeveloped for the most part because of the lack of facili ties which it is the province of the Countr Rooads Board to provide. And it is not for want of effort on the part of the people who havee ,been for. nore . than a generation struggling to bring these rich productive areas into their oiwn, that the need for railways and royds .i have not been reoonised by. the authorities. Efforts, httle short of desperate have been put forth by tile. settlers to have the justice of their claiips for assistance -recognised. But the ,evil of centralisation-the '"pull" of the people in the big ceintres-has rendered these efforts null. The Board, during a recent ;pilgrimage through Heytesbury...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914

WOMEN'S INTERES;TS (By "Ambroaine.") Velvet neck-bands and satinflounces are. two of. the crazes of the' moment. A narrow black velvet ribbon with a peindant, or a large baroque pearl is much worn with white blouses for morning wear. Some people have even adopted the fashion of wearing the flat wrist .watch -mounted on a black vel vet.ribbon-bracelet, and this eighteenth century fashion makes a quaint con trast with a tailor-made dress. There is a new garment coming into vogue, which is partly scarf and partly; pele rine. A pretty one was in wide mate rial, the border of which consisted of a blanket stitch in thick Berlin wool, worked first in black, and then' over that in white. The effect at a distance was not unlike ermine. Not for many a year has lace played so iiteresting a part in the modes as it has this season. The effort to widen the silhouette at least a little, has had somethiing todo with the imatter; for flounces have been brought from the imbo of discarded things, and ...

During the hot, dry seasons, or period of drought, when all other kinds of fodder plants are languishing, or are destroyed by the intense heat, this plant would be luxuriant ; and, being of a rich ioist nature, the necessity for much (if any) water would be greatly minllimised. It can. be readily grown in any class of dry soil, and after the first year will pro duce. about 100 tons of succulent and nutritious'fodder, which can' be fed to all kinds -of' stock and poultry, and it is highly praised by the leading authorities who say that it' makes beef and butter of the best quality.
