PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 2 June 1888
PERSONAL. M[r Maurice We.ton is the Itlgh 3t[Coll of Tasmania, and he has had the advantage of a drought to help him. The longdrought, which has only recently broken up in Tas mania, has given force to Mr Weston's en thusiastic advocacy of irrigation. The late Mr iHugh M'Coll kept straight on at irrigation. He did not allow wet seasons to throw coiiar water on the cause, but a copious rainfall always had the effect of damping the ardour of the northern farmers. It took the occupiers of the northern areas 12 years. to find out that 3M'Cull was right. MJr liowla; d lRees, of the 8. A. legisla ture, and Commtasioner of the Centennial Exhibition, is a brilliant couversationist. lie is brimmoing over with anecdotes, most of which are " fit for publication." Mrs W. B. Chaffey has unfortunately suffret a relapses, and will conaequenely be unable to proceed to her home at Mildura for some time.

When super vising the construction of thesection between Hergott Springs and the P'eaike (20; iftiles), of the Transcontinental railwva from .Ale Ilde to l'ort Da)rwin, one of the greatest troublea I had to contend against was tile supply of water to the large number of men and animals employed.
