AND SwaIr HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISiED WEEKLY. KERANG, AUGUST 9, 87Y . TREE PLASTixc.-The season for tree planting-will soon be over, and unless action be taken by intended planters at once thle season will be lost. Wle are glad to see that some remarks made onthis subject a month or two ago are bearing fruit. The Shire Coun cil have place £0oo on -the estimates for tree planting, although this amount will not go far-yet is a matterfor-satis faction,.that:the council have accepted thesuggestion, and are determined to act -on it This sulim we believe is to be expended in different portions of the shire, so that the number of treesptobe planted in the streets of Kerang this season by the council will be limited, and inless the council take action at their meeting on Monday,to commence planting at once it had better be de ferred for another season. Some of our townsmen we are pleased to see are alive to the advantages of shade trees. Mr J. Cullen haiing planted a number in the streets on wh...

MRS POTTS' CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 16 August 1878
lIiS POTTS' CIIT.D. The sensation consequent upon the ab duction and recovery of Mrs Potts' child appears likely to be increased by revela tions concerning the life of the woman .Mary Agnes Fitzgibbon, who has admitted she stole the infant. It has already been stated that this woman had led a dissolute life, but it has not been ascertained that in addition to the crnel theft of the child she has committed bigamy. When first met by Fitzgibbon, neqr y iwo years since, the accused nracesented that she was a single ioianq, and as such she marrieA bin, but it has now been ditooer ed that she married a man named Lawrence O'Daly in tihe LteOr end of 1S75, or tia hoginniog of 187G.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 16 August 1878
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The weather up to Saturday, which was spring like, has been very favourable, for the crops which are at presenut looking vcry well in the lBcudigo district. Ilowever,early on Sunday morning it commenced to rain, and aince then we have hlad several very heavy showers, which no doubt will do the crops more harm than good, if it continues. In determining the precisq period for sowing carrots, parsnips, &c., regard imust be paid to the locality and the character of the season. In a moist spring, and especi ally if the soil has been soaked during winter to a great depth, there will be dan ger of such crops running to seed if they are sown unchl before September. In dry seasons, on the contrary, small seeds often fail even in August in the Melbourne dis tricts, and in others having a similar range of climate. In the present instance the con ditions appear to be favourable to later sowing than we should have considered ex pedient in the absence of thie recent ra...
