CR ARMSTRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 March 1915
CR AR3ISTB0XG-. Cr. R. Armstrong corroborated the accuracy of the figures sub mitted. by the League. The quan tity of fruit produced was com piled. by the farmers themselves. He accounted for the difference between the farms, as computed some years ago fxt 270. and now 1G5, from "the fact that the Government statist had compiled from a larger area' than the League li'ad done. Ho believed the population was ad vancing. Tho increase in sheep was due to the fact that the farm ers found it paid to combine slieep with cultivation. He thought that i!20 acres would bo required for a family to makei a living, and would not agree with' the previous wit ness that 150 acres was sufficient. IIo was a practical farmer, and had been in the district for i!G years He had brought up a family of seven on !i20 acres.

On behalf of the Stra'th b'ogio United Leagues he presented a mass of statistics relating to tho actual results of each farm in tho whole district. The figures could be verified in every instance. Tho cartage of produce to any railway station from Strathbogic entailed' a; whole day's journey and much strain on horses and vehicles. There were over '14,000 acres in the area capable of cultivation, .which would grow potatoes and cereal crops. There were also vast quantities of firewood and milling timber available. The Strathbogic lino would be the natural outlet for the Too Rour forest.

Tho Chairman of the committee said ho had an apology to make Cor tho Jion.attendanco of Mr. J. D. Mitchell, M.L..A., who, with the Premier, was ...visiting a nother pari of the electorate. Tho taking of evidence was thon proceeded with, , THE SHIRE ENGINEER. W. C. Reeves, shire engineer, Violet Town, stated:-'I -'traversed the surveyed railway, at the ' de sire of the Violet Town league, to the Tableland. In that distance it. rises about- 900 feet, about 80 feet of that" in tho last seven miles. A uniform grade; would be 1 to 105, but for economical consti-uc tion, much steeper grades would be used, say for short distance, . 1 in 50. The present survey is made to cross the Honeysuckle creek four or five times; probably when a permanent survey is made some of those. will be avoided and dif. Acuities eliminated i that will add to the efficiency and economy in its construction. There appears to be a possibility that more regular grades could be obtained, by leav. ing tho tableland on t...

The committee sa.t at the Shire Hall. Euroa, oil Wednesday morn ing, Mr. Gordon, M.L.A., introduc ing the witnesses. Tho Chairman explained that the Committee had secured all the evi dence it needed at Strathbogie in respect to produce, etc., and the sitting at Euroa; was principally for information regarding route. CR. "WALE. Cr. G. 13. "Wale, representing Mil ler and Co.. general merchants, said &lt;hat as far as he was concerned tho strongest claim for a line to start from Euroa. was that sinco Strathbogie had been settled the bulk of the produce had come to tho town, which was the' natural outlet, Strathbogie was about 14 miles away. His firm handled po tatoes, oats, cliaff, wool, hides and skins, etc. Euroa, as the trading centre, would naturally view with alarm any proposal to divert that trade-; He was looking at the pro posal from a, purely business point.

" Witness," I described how the bine gum leaves could bo turned into a valu able veterinary remedy. 1 now pro pose to show careful housewives how they can make a most efficacious and useful household remedy. When a patent medicine is advortised to cure all the ills flesh is heir to, one is in clined to view it with suspicion. The number of uses that the blue-gum de coction can bo put to would incline one to doubt, if one did not remember that it is a strong antiseptic, and allays ir ritation and inflammation, either exter nal or internal. Shortly after I lirst experimented with it 1 gave a bottle to a sawmill haud who had had his thumb nearly cut off by a circular saw. It cured. his thumb, and he was an exceedingly grateful man the next timo I saw him. 1 had told him that it could be used safely internally for coughs anil colds.

Strathbogie Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 9 March 1915
Strathbogie Railway. Though no official announce, ment has been made on the mat ter of the projected railway line to Strathbogie.' the claims of which were recently investigated by the Railways Standing Committee, unofficial information of a satis factory character is to hand. On excellent authority it is current ly reported that the Committee lias decided to recommend the lino for construction, and that it will be included in the next railway mea sure to come before Parliament. No information is available as to the proposed route, or whether anj- recommendation is made on this subject at all. It is probable, however", that the question will be left an open one, as the surveys and estimates drawn up were only preliminary, and the Committee might, therefore, consider the data available insufficient to make a definite pronouncement as to the point from which the line should start. -Advertiser.
