SAND HILLS. (From Our Own Correspondent). The district about the Sand Hills is showing the need of rain. Grass has gone off very much this last week or two. We had a dust storm this (Wednesday), evening, and it looks like a change. Rain will be very welcome, for it is very much needed. Mr Peards is doing good work with the children, although they seem to feel the loss of Mr Cook after his seven years among them.

Byown, our Federal member, stating that a • mail for Tom's Lagoon will be arranged for as soon as an office has been established. ; He also asked what distance of a line would, be' required to connect Forbes with the Tom's Lagoon delivery office. The Sand Hills will not be the forgotten little place people thought it was if it gets a mail and a 'phone.

BATTLING WITH BUNNY. A SUCCESSFUL METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912
BATTLING WITH BUNNY. SUCCESSFUL METHOD. Many are the devices which are tried to drive the rabbit out of the land, but none are effective, partly because there is no unanimity amongst landholders, and partly because the extermination of the furry rodent is not desired by others who make a living by selling Bunny's Y^istcoiit, and sending his carcase to freezing room. Said a landholder the otTier day—'Almost every landholder is culpable, and the P.P. Board generally distributes the summonses pretty equally; so, when you Have just been lined, you can pretty well rely on it that you won't be troubled; for a time, and you can let things rip." " • ■ This leads up to a device tried by Mr H. T. Ho'dgesj- of "The Willows," Bedgerabong, recently. He has a block of land, . there, known as Tearle'sf 40-acre . block, which was notorious as a. . rabbit-infested . area. He put two. men on digging trenches about three feg.t in depth along the main rabbit entrances to the warrens, and covered each m...
