THE DOUBLE DISSSOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914
I THE DOUtitB DISSOLVtidll.' 1 A double dissolution, was ithe expedient resortedtoby'Mr Ser vice, and the 6Ie'otorg paid no attention to the questioii he"sub mitted to them but' turiied:him out of ' office instead. Mr Ser vice said be was a "gonel; coori'" and a long series :of' coalition governments followed. * The cir cumstances affecting' Mr Cook are on a larger scale, but are otherwise much the same. The Australian people have not yet acquired the responsibility of self-government. It will be far belter for Mr Cook to hold fast to the bird he has in his hand than seek another in the bush. And the Governor-General, may l'cel it his duty to tell him so. Administration and not legisla tion is all sufficient for many years to come, and there is enough work for any Ministry in that direction, however weak it may be in legislative power. Mr Cook has not evolved a pro gramme upon which to base a general election. He had better lake second thoughts, in con junction with the Governor-Gen...

A HOME-MADE HAIR GROWER. THAT DOES MARVELS. During the last few years an noucements have appeared occa sionally telling how to. make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many that have tried it have obtained such re markable results One lady writes that immediately " after reading the lormula," she went .to her chemist and had him put up directed-1 ounce of La vona de Gomposee, i dram Men thol Crystals, and 3 ounces Bay Rum.

WATER FOR IRRIGATION. UTILISATION OF GOULBURN RIVER. ROOM FOR GREAT EXPANSION [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 March 1914
WATER FOR IRRIGATION. j UTILISATION OF GOULBUHN RIVER. ROOM FOR GREAT EXPANSION ) There is room for great ex pansion in the irrigation schemes supplied from the Goul burn. Apparently the great value of the water which flows across the Northern district is not yet fully appreciated by land owners ■ The Goulburn-Waranga scheme has cost to date no less than £1,718,858. While the scheme has been of enormous value to Northern Vic toria, the results accruing from it still fall far short of early ex pectations. The main western channel from Waranga extends as' far as Serpentine Creek, about four miles east of the Lod don, a distance of 92 miles. The East Goulburn channel extends for 33 miles and the main chan nel from the Goulbiirii to Wa ranga, 23 miles. It is estimated that a water supply for stock and-domestic purposes is provi ded for 14,200 people in rural districts' and for an additional ■i000„ in townships.
