aiaugwarr?ii. (FRot ous owN CORREsPONDENT.) October :lOth. Heavy rain fell lire on Sunday; but the weather has now the appearance of being settled. We are all anxiously awaiting the result of at deputation in reference to the Lang warrin and Cranbourne railway, which will wait upon the Minister of Railways to-day, to urga the speedy construction of the line. This line has been promised for nearly four years, and sis there is suitable stone for hallasting purposes conveniently near, we are justified in hoping, that at no distant ditte, our wishes will be fulfilled. A resident of Langwarrin who has just returned from a visit to the Western dis trici, inforuiss us that at the latter place the " Iutterfly plague"-if such it may be termed-is at its height. Hundreds of golden-winged bumtterflies may he seen fluttering over the fields; unlike the locust, the butterfly is not a destroyer, but the farmers are considering with alarml the quantity of caterpillars such a host of ,utterflies wil...

Dromana. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 November 1889
: : -Dronina. (Fsots OUR OWN CORRESPO DENT.) At the Shire Council meeting on Saturday last, Dr. Wilkinson, the Health Officer, gave notice of- his intention to resign his office, as he is leaving the dis trict through ill-health. We are exceed ingly sorry to lose Dr. Wilkinson, hq has made a host of friends all over the peninsula by his kindness and attention to his patients, as well as by his cleverness and skill, which are acknowledged by all who have had occasion to engage him. I am glad that the Shire Council are endeavoring to induce a medical man to reside in the centre of the Shire. At the meeting on Saturday a resolution was passed that applications be received for the position of Health Officer at a salary if resident at Dromana or Flinders-of £100 per ainnum. There is a very good opening in this place, I venture to say for .an energetic young mian; the district is large, and population ivill increase, aind the several towns lying around Droniana are at no very great distan...
