THE BERRI BLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 21 November 1913

THE BERRI BLOCKS. On Monday I seized the chance of a flying trip to the new allot ments now open for application at Bern. It was not easy to get an iaea of their whereabouts from the published plan, but a few minutes with Mr Pflauni at the Berri Departmental office, and with a large map of th2 settlement before us, made their location pretty clear, and we had no special difficulty in finding them. There are only 17 irrigable blocks now offering. Of these 12 are in one solid piece of 414 acres (averaging well over 30 acres each block), and the other (smaller) ones are left-overs from previous allotment—lots that for one reason or another have not been taken up by the original allottees, Two of these (of 20 and 13% acres apiece) are on the blue bush flat,_ close to the river's edge; the other three (of 21 22^ and acres respectively) are similar in character to most of the land | comprised in the last allotment. They are timbered with needlebush, pine and mallee,* and are very promisin...

EVERYLADY'S JOURNAf, AND AUSTRALIAN PATTERNS. The question of . the modern woman's dress in" its modesty 01; othsrwi^s—is just now exercising ' many minds. Presumably, therefore, the symposium of. opinions en this matter which appears in " Every - lady's Journal " this month will be read with considerable interetl;. The opinions are various. Lady Denman, wife of the Governor-General, con siders the fashions" of to-day verj sane, and much in advance of their predecessors, but Dr. Carr, Roman Catholic Archbishop of - MfHouroe, thinks s'ome of them rather shocking. Other notables consulted are Mr. Frra Nible, MiBS Madge Titkeraidge, the Rev. F. C. Spurr, Dr. J. W. Barrett, Dr. (Archbishop) Clarke, and Miss Vida "Goldstein. An illustrated article of practical value 'on stencil ling makes one of the journal's series on home industries" that pay, but most readers will probably turn first to the 'absorbing serial " What ■Happened to Mary ?
