EASY WAY TO CLEAN CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
EASY WAY TO CLEAN CAR. The car needs to be cleaned thor oughly at least once -a week; oftener will do no harm. Cleaning natur ally divides: itself into two parts, washing and polishing, and brushing upholstery and 'top.' The latter is done before the washing; otherwise the dust is likely to streak the body. First, raise the top ana brush it thoroughly, both inside and outside, then brush the upholstery and finally beat the rug. If the top is stained, it may be4 cleaned with water and ammonia or castile soap and luke warm water. Gasoline or kerosene is not used, because either will rot the rubber in the fabric. The top must not be folded until perfectly dry, or it will mildew. Another point ii" the care of' tbops, open them up whenever the car is not in use for a considerable period. Great care should be observed in washing the car, or in removing the dirt and grit the varnish will be mar red. The preferable method is to soften the mud by means of a gentle stream from a hose, not equ...

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 57. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
BACCHUS MARSH. :^ · By W. WILLIAMr, B.A. No. 57. -?.'*:* April 11, 1874. A Working Men's Association was established at Bac : chris Marsh. President, Mr. James ^: Youhg, of Coimadai; Vice-President, S Mr. W. Martin, jun.j Committee, Messrs. W. Meikle, jun., J. McCar ney and W. Dodemaide; Secretary, Mr. H. A. Living. The reason for the movement-that as the eight hours had become firmly established in the largo towns of the colony, thderi was need for extending it in the country districts, especially in connection with Shire Council con tracts, for while some contractors observed the eight hours, others did "n not, and this resulted in much ill will. The "Express" believed that the eight hours was tIhe proper thing, and hoped that the Associa . -- tion would carry out its programme. The "Express" had no doubt that such consummation could be if all the working men of the district be came identified with the movement. Thus started the Laboi Party, under the designation Working Men's As ...

ROWSLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
ROWSLEY. - (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Shearing has finished round about here; and harvest has .commenced. Machines are going in nearly eve'ry paddock. The, hay crop is a pro lific one-the best for a number of years, and the stooks appear to be nearly touching each other in many fields. The grass has gone off very much during the last week or two. The second cut of lucerne wants a drop of moisture to bring it along. Mount Wallace district looks lovely and green. The crops are good there also, and as green as a leek. There is a good coating of grass all, round the hills, better than it has ever been. That is on account of a live Rabbit Inspector. Where there wei'e hundreds of bunnies be fore it would be a long walk to get one now. The lambs in the valley are very good. There is a lot of beef and mutton in this district: the flocks are all prime. It will soon be time for the chaffcutter and the threshing machines. Snakes have made their appearance in many places, and they are a fair...
