THE GOTJLBURN WEIR. Margaret Ellen Hawkins, who lives at Byrneside, writes:—Dear Aunt Connie.—It is a long time since I last wrote to you, but still I have not forgotten you. I will take for my subject "Tlie Goulburn Weir." There is a weir built across the (Joulburn River at Wahring. By means of the.weir the water is raised up a great height. It is then turned into big channels. Some of those channels lead into the Waranga Basin, which is a big artificial lake, eight miles west of Tatura. From that lake there are channels leading move than 100 miles west, towards the Mallee district, and watering a great part of the north-west of Victoria. Other channels run directly north from the weir, and water a great part of the R-odney Shire. As people by this means are able to get plenty of water in summer, they are able to grow lucerne and fodder crops and also large quantities of fruit, which are caaned or dried and then exported to other parts.

THE MANTIS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
THE MANTIS. John Bourke, who lives at Kanumbra, writes:—Dear Uncle Ben,—This the first time I have "written to you, and I hope to win the p-rize. I shall tell you about the mantis. It is an insect, because It has six legs, and its body is divided into three parts—the head, thorax and abdomen. The mantis makes a papery-like cocoon, in which it places dozens of tiny eggs. These eggs hatch, and numerous. little ones hatch out of them. They shed their skins several times before they get wings. They live on smaller insects, besides tfoe fresh, young, green leaves. On its front legs—on the inside of them—are two pretty purple marks. I have often kept them in boxes and watched all the stages of their 'lives. It is, indeed, wonder ful to see them. It is sometimes said that they pray, as they sit up in a praying atti tude. Hound a dam near our place there are a great many thistles, and in them you can get a mantis any time you like. When the young ones are just out they are grey, but as they...
