Correspondence. To the 'Editor Quambatook Times. [The. Editor xvishcs it to le understood that he docs not necessarily endorse opinions expressed by Correspondents under this heading.j ' Sir,—In your last issue there was a paragraph saying that the water from the Avoca River was let go to Wycheprcof, and that the people were not very keen on using it. Why did they divert it if it was not usable ? The people on the Mosquito Creek are at their wits'end for a supply of that water. Their sheep, cattle and horses will drink it if they can get it. The dams are all dry und full of dead sheep. The water bailiff out to take the health officer round and let him smell it. The stench is polluting the air. for miles around.

UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 28 October 1914

UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT Novel life-saving apparatus is carried by the steamer Recto, which arrived at Dover recently from Norway. Slung from her davits is to be seen a lifeboat, which bears a striking resemblance to a submarine, sylindrical hull aud con ning tower complete. It is of sufficient size to accommodato the whole of the steamer's crew of fifteen hands, and is entered through the oonning-tower, the hatch of which may be closed. The craft is self-righting and above the tower is a small mast on which a sail can be rigged. It is claimed for thit> lifeboat that it is unsinkable unless it should be stove in, and that it cau live in the roughest soa. The .Recto also carries a motor life-boat of the open type, and has probably the finest life saving equipment of any mercantile vessel of her size.

OUR MOTTO : " Truth is great, ami mill prevail." WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28,1914 THE SEASON'S OUTLOOK. It is not many years ago—during the last drought—when there was a great contro versy in the metrop olitan daily papers on the question, "Is the Mallee worth saving ?" Subsequent events showed that the northern mallee land was not the hungry, dried up, and parched country which the people in the city thought, most of whom probably did not know or care what or where the mallee was. The pres ent year is somewhat similar to that of 1902; but what has hap pened in the meantime ? Whore was then a wilderness is now dotted with prosperous and thriv ing towns which have sprung up, ! and there are numerous well-to-do farrrers scattered throughout the length and bread h of the lan;1.
