The Half Year's Rainfall. LOWEST SINCE 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 9 July 1914

I The Half Year's Rainfall. LOWEST SINCE 1886. Mr W. M. Waddell, who is the Government meteorological officer for Kerang, has furnished the " New Times " with the details of the rain fall records for the last six months, which are as follows :—January, 6 points; February, 41; March, 30; April, 1-19; May, 7-3; -Tune, 12 points; making a total since the beginning of this year of 3.11 inches. This is the lowest rainfall for the first six months of any year since 1377, except 1886, when only 286 points fell in that period. In l88o though the year opened so unpropi tiously, it proved a fairly good one, on the whole, as it ended up with a total rainfall of 13.73 inches. Seeing that the first six mouths of thejyear 18S6 so closely resembles the past six months, it may be interesting to give detai's of that season.

This line will link up Sea Lake and Swan Hill via Tyrrell Downs and Waitchie. In his opening remarks at the Farmers' Convention the president, Mr Duncan McLennan, made re ference to the practice which was observed amongst farmers and gra ziers of sending their ewes and ewe lambs Lr slaughter, and pointed out that nothing but calamity could result from the continuance of such a policy.

Dealing | with the rumor that a huge Ameri- j can meat trust had obtained, or was about to obtain, a fooling m Aus tralia, the president indicated that j the true remedy for any organised | - "int...
