BACCHUS MARSH. No. 45. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 13 February 1915
BAOOHUS MARSH. By W. WILIAMs, B.A. No. 45. - The last of the Deep Creek Toll Gate, January 15, 1870. Editorial comment-"We are glad to notice that Mr. J. E. Crook has ieceived instructions to sell the toll house and gates at Djerriwarrh Creek on 27th inst." The search for gold continues. Mr. Greeves, a miner of Cockatoo Gully, found- a piece of quartz very rich with gold. The. specimen was three-cornered, not at all water worn, and all the diggers of the lo cality are of the opinion that a quartz reef was near by. Apparently Bacchus Marsh district is not a gold field, if we judge by the lack of prospecting to-day, but in the six ties there was much confidence ex pressed that gold was to be found locally. The geological expert, Mr. Brough Smyth, a Government offi cial, made a report on the possi bilities in regard to gold deposits, but it was declared to -be very guarded. The Marsh in- prehistoric or ancient times :was - the. scene of the loosing and devastating action of vast voluni...

THE rule of the road is nobt observed so strictly" asit- should be by. all kinds of traffic. It keeps too much to the cdentre of the road. This is specially dangeroius where roads are narrow, right angle turnings num erous, and motor traffic increasing. The habit . is due to thoughtless carelessness, and should be checked by Police admuonition, as it is a menace to the general welfare. Farmers are'now very busy with their ploughing, and the ground is turning up well. The previous rain will make this ploughing as good as an extra working. A lot of landowners are busy cut ting their Bathurst burrs, star and saffron ,thistles just now and there are a lot that are not doing it.

BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 13 February 1915
BACCHUS MARSH. THE Pyrete creek bridge contract has at last been let, and no time should be lost in utilising the re mainder of the summer in getting on with the work. The colloquialism, "taken over by the Country Roads Board," is growing, and is danger ously misleading. The Board is entirely passive. The whole re sponsibility remains with the Coun cils. The Hopetoun bridge -now demands attention. The two works should have been let concurrently. We direct attention to. the -adver tisement on page 4 regarding the Sale of the Coochin-Coochin estate, Queensland, which is to be offered for sale by auction on Wednesday, 7th April. This property has been inspected and reported-on by Mr. William Grant, J.P., of "Millbank," Bacchus Marsh,, who, we should say, owns some of the best lucerne grow ing land in Victoria. Yet Mr. Grant, in his report, says this Coochin-Coo chin land is really superior in qual ity to anything found in Bacchus Marsh,' and "the best that he 'has ever walked over." If...

.SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Trooper Todd, of Bac chus Marsh: Alexandria.- We anchored here after a lovely voyage. We stayed two. days at Coloinbo, but did not get ashore. Then on to Suez, where we stayed for one day; then- through the Canal to Port Said, where we stayed for a week, but did not get ashore there, either, through some silly fellows throwing- potatoes at the river police. We are bound for Mena, a town about ten miles from Cairo. . Will Morton is well again, and on duty. He and I were on guard last night, and you bet we had a task, as everyone- wanted to go ashore. There are nineteen boats around our ship selling all' sorts of avares, mostly fruit. We have every thing ready to disembark, and served- with two days' rations -four biscuits and a tin of bully beef. ,We are going to bivouac-no tents to live in, like Broadmeadows. Mena.-We have landed at last, after eight eight weeks on the boat. We have camped in the Saharah Desert, about a mile from the Pyr amids. We dise...
MYRNIONG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 13 February 1915
MYRNIONG. (FRoM ouR owN CORRESPONDENT)' A rifle- match took place between Myrniong and Ballan on the latter's range on Saturday last. The day. was cool, but a tricky wind from the south-west, with a deceptive mirage, mnade good shooting difficult for many of the less-experienced - shots, and as a result some rather low scores were recorded. The visitors ,h4d.:secured a win over..their: oppon ents some weeks ago, and of course were anxious to ma'intain their good reputation. At the shorter range Myrniong secured a lead of 28pts., but Were beaten by two points over the longer distance, thus winning by - the comfortable margin of 26 points. The conditions were 8 shots - at 300 and 500 yards. For Ballan, S. Lay put up the best score with 67, and R. Lidgett, with 69, was best for the visitors. A very -nice lunch was served on the range,.and altogether a very pleasant and en joyable day was spent. Scores: Myrniong : R. Lidgett, 33, 36, 69; E. Palmer, 30, 35,. 65; M. O'Connor, 32, 33, 65; ...
