WIRE NETTING [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
WIRE NETTING The advisability of the council taking advantage of the provisions for the supply of wire netting was discussed at last meeting. Cr Hungerford said the system was working satisfactorily in Bairnsdale and other shires, and moved that steps be taken to obtain a supply. The President said the council hid discussed the matter some time ago, and thought it was not advisable to take it up. He thought notice would have to be given of the motion. It would be necessary to fi tat a loan. Cr Hungerford then moved that tht time has arrived fzr the council to con sider the advisability of pruviding wire netting for settlers. Cr WVatt asked what the settlers would save by purchasing through the council. The President: "Nothing, for cash. It is only a matter of giving terme." Cr F.

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
AGRICUL?LTURAL. SCIENCE Reviewing the subject of agricultural I science in Great Britain, the outlook, says Professor Wood,'is distinctly hope 'ul.

New varieties of farm crops were being produced by the Pl t- c breeding Institiute at Cambridge, ,.ad isewhere. Finally, the soil surveys n which the colleges had seriously ciii barked would assist in defining the reas over which such results were .p plicable.

THE BIBLE IN STATE SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
THE BIBLE IN STATE SCHOOLS. - On Wednesday, the 17th, the Rev. Joseph Nicholsoti, superintendent of the Scripture Campaign Council delivered an address in the Orbost Mechanics' Insuti tote on "The Nation's Book in the Nation's Schools." He said that the lessons which it was proposed to intro duce in the school books were extracts from the Bible of a non-sectarian char acter. They had been prepared by a Royal Commission composed of fourteen representatives from all Protestant churches. The great legal authority, Blackstone, had declared that British law had its basis and sanction in the Bible. We were a Christian nation. When the King was crowned a copy of the Bible was placed in his hands and called the Royal law. Queen Victoria had told an Ashanti Chief that the Bible was the secret of England's greatness. President Jackson had declared that it was the rock on which the prosperity of the country rested, and in keeping it out of our national schools we kept out an element of value i...

. SH'ARE YOUR R?OSES. A tourist brings this pleasant story about, Andrew Carnegie from Scotland: At Skibo Castle Mr. Carnegie had a beautiful rose garden. There were thousands of red and white and yellow roses always blooming there, -and the villagers were free to saunter in the garden paths to their heart's coirtent. One day tihe head gairdener waited upi:n Mr. Carnegie. "Sir, I wish to lodge a complaint," he ventured. "Well?" and the master waited. "Wcll, sir, I wish to inform you that the village folks are plucking the roses in your rose garden. They are de nuding your rose trees, sir." "Aih," and there was a: note of deep satisfaction in Mr. Carnigie's voice, "so my people are fond of flowers, are they, Donald? Then you must plant more!"
SNOWY RIVER BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
SNOWY RIVER BRIDGE. p The shire president, Cr. Lynn, has submitted a report of the conference held in Melbourne, and other matters which will be read at next council meeting. We have permission to publish the report which is as follows : I beg to report that I have attended a conference in Melbourne re the con struction of a dual traffic bridge across the Snowy River. The conference was not satisfatory from the council's point of view, as the proposals of the Minister of Railways would, I think, impose too great a burden on the rate-payers of this shire. The estimated cost of a dual traffic bridge without footway is £18,000, and of a railway bridge £15,000. I proposed that the railway department find £15,000 and the Orbost Shire and Main Roads Board £3,000, but Mr. McKinnon would not entertain the pro posal, and he said that unless the Orbost Shire was prepared to put forward a proposal to lind about half the money there was no chance of the railway crossing the river at present.
