Cultivation on a Road. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Cultivation on a ^ioad. Complaints have been made to Stroud Sliire Council that a certain person had ploughed and cultivated a shire road at Johnson's Creek. These complaints were brought under the person's notice several times during 1910, but on each occasion he claimed the road as his private property, on the ground that it is within his boun dary fencing, and therefore his by right of -undisturbed possession, and he refused to acknowledge the coun cil's ownership. Tins is a matter that should be settled without delay. Council's rights and claims should not be allowed to be ignored, if they are right in their contention.

Local Rate for Lighting Purposes. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Local Rate for Lighting Purposes. All councils, more or less, who levy a rate for lighting purposes, experi ence a difficulty in deciding Avho are exempt from paying such rates, un less they clearly lay down the boun dary lines 'within which the liability obtains, that is-where the lights are not erected over the whole area, as is the case in sparsely populated districts. In many cases the coun cils charge the rate on all properties, although they know full well that the Act (section 153, 2) says:-"Any such special rate levied for the pur pose of defraying the cost of lighting roads may be levied only upon rat able landd within the area deriving any benefit or edvantage from the expenditure of such rate." They re fuse to have the amount charged written off, but prefer to sue the ratepayer at the court for the re covery of the amount, leaving it to the magistrate to decide whether from the facts placed before him, the land derives any benefit or ad vantage from the light. It invari a...

Motor Cars. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Motor Cars. The Mayor of Prospect, and Sher wood tabled a minute at last meet ing with reference to the racing of motor-cars on the Western-road. Four dogs had been destroyed with in two months by racing cars; and his Worship feared that before long some child or adult would be killed. Motor-cars ran along the road at 60 miles an hour; and lesser folks were looked upon, apparently, as a nui sance. Motor-cars were increasing in numbers and in power, and were do ing very great damage to the roads of shires and municipalities. Serious public danger, as well as a ruinous cost to the ratepayers, might be ex pected to continually threaten whilst the present state of things evicted. An amended Motor Vehicle Act was required.-Adopted; the Mayor being complimented upon his treatment of the subject.
FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
FRUIT. Large arrivals of bananas from Fiji and a full shipment of fruit, chiefly pears, from Melbourne, have had a depressing effect on the market, and the advent of colder weather has helped to make things worse. Bananas have been dear so long that when tneir price is down other fruits suffer accordingly. The Victorians sent over a lot of W.B.C. pears, Golden Buerre's, and others, which are realising down to as low as 1/, 1/6, ana 2/6 per packer. Prices of apples have fallen in sympathy. There is a very fair demand at the lower rates ruling. Fiji bananas are 10/ to 11/ per case, and 2/6 to 7/ per bunch ; Queensland, 6/ to 6/6 per case and 3d. to 1/6 per bunch. Nearly all kinds of fruit are lower than is usual at this time of the year.
STOCKINGS AND SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
STOCKINGS AND SHOES. ? In spite of the nonsense talked and "written about " gay hose" ana " glad .stockings," the vast majority of feet are clad soberly in black. Some "very pretty clocked stockings seem to come to mind as a contradiction of the foregoing statement, but it "holds good, nevertheless. I find that cashmere liose are an easy first, as ?tliey impart a comfort to the feet which neither cotton nor silk can give. Openwork cashmere supply "the touch of coquettish frivolity which some women like. Never wore shoes and stockings of more import ance ! Whatever skirt we are doomed to wear, whether the one and in divisible, or the dual garment, they are both short enough to show the foot. Therefore, need I say it ? High heels run to ridiculous lengths -under the shoe of the moment. Re gular skyscrapers, some of the heels look ! Attached to one little pair, ?of black velvet shoes receive! as a. present by a Sydney woman from a friend on the other side of the Pacific, the delightful...
THE MOTOR BONNET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
THE MOTOR BONNET. Small bell, or mushroom, models in fur or beaver, the downturned brim faced with contrasting color, ?which, is repeated in some small ornament or in the veiling, will be popular for motoring. Most popular of all, how ever, 'will certainly be the gauged silk bonnets of glace or merv., with long veil matching in colour. Some of the shows display many such, and as the time is past when rude per sons turned round in the street and stared at a woman in a motor bon 3iet, if they were not in the car, these comfortable examples are often seen for street wear. A shape seen at .one of the Pitt-street shops, and par ticularly admired by me, was 01 satin .straw in the now universal royal blrie .shade, following the lines of one of the gauged silk bonnets. For tne .country these " motor affairs are quite the ideal wear. A flowered .and befeatliered hat is a perfect nuis ance when its wearer is sulky driv ing on a country road. To such the new compact bonnet is a boon and a bles...
HIGH PRICED TRIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
HIGH PRICED TRIMMING. Collar and cufi' sets of good lace are now of great value to their lucky possessors, for they can be worked in to great advantage in various ways. On an evening gown lately I saw a beautiful Brussels lace col lar draped across the front of the bodice as a berthe. The collar was uncut ; noboay will cut lace if she can possibly avoid cutting it. This collar, made quite a sufficiently large berthe. Such snacks and snippets of trimming are considered quite enough for a dress nowadays, that the old days of yards of fanciful galon and passementerie in cheap varieties appear to us now to have been the time when bad taste was running riot in our fashions. The prices" asked for trimming to-day positively leave the purchaser limp and cold. But every cloud has its silver lining, and the, bright side to this heavy cloud of price is that three-quarters of a yard will be ample to trim a gown, while for a hat perhaps half-a-yard is all that is needed. Then the 25s. a yard so ...
Women's Affairs Fashions of the Week A LOVE FOR LACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Women's Affairs W By "THE WIFE." )) Fashions of the Week A LOVE FOR LACE. Into many of the new models lace finds its way in the scheme of de coration. It is to satin and velvet that we must look for the best effects to be got out of the new season's cut and fit of gown and coat, and tnese effects will be heightened by much lace. Black satin, cut with a startling simplicity, the skirt being so narrow that you would take it at first glance for the now notorious harem skirt, is finished off at the coat with long deep revers of white Hose point, while cuffs from wrist almost to elbow reveals same lace in all its artistic satisfactoriness. Nothing can complete the plain sevei'ity of some of the best dresses now seen, so well as lace can. It is a sign of good taste, too, that the lace is invariably genuine. Expen sive, if you will. Yes, that it is impossible to deny, but for those who feel the charm of lace, the demands of tp-day for more of this trimming can only be welcomed. It is not q...

A Useful Clock. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
A Useful Clock. ' Alderman Kelly, Bega, moved mat a clock be secured for the Council Chambers. Xnis was a thoughtful act on liis part, for we know of in stances that for want of a reliable timepiece aldermen have continued their meetings until after " eleven/' and much disappointment has been created. Of course, these were cases where the Mayor was not wont to dispense hospitality at the close of the meeting. This is no jfek^.
PESTS AND DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
PESTS AND DISEASES. Apparently the time is almost at hand when the coastal men are to gain some experience of rabbits. Up till a year or so ago, the idea was scouted that rabbits would ever come over the range. But now they have come, and by the look of things they are going to take some shifting. There is now scarcely a district along the coast in which the pest has not made its appearance. Even in old and very close-settled lllawarra, there are now rabbits galore, the finer grasses in the pastures being greedily eaten. They arc thick on tne Upper Hunter and working down. Hares, likewise, are becoming very plentiful. "It only Avants a couple of years in which to breed up, and the Clarence will be as full of hares as a little dog is full of fleas," says a local paper. Grasshoppers have been like an in vading army in some districts, and there are fears that the tick is work ing south. Furthermore, there are two brand new sheep diseases, and one extra-special cattle disease, not to sp...

Barbed Wire Fence. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Barbed Wire Fence. At last meeting of iiathurst (coun cil the Mayor reported that he had received a letter from a ratepayer suggesting that the barbed wire fence around the parks should be removed. The writer pointed out that the wire was a menace to children and others, and now that the gates had been re moved, there was really no necessity for it. Discussion ensued, during which it was stated that quite re cently ladies had complained of their dresses being torn through the barbed wire. Some of the aldermen thought in such cases the council would be "liable for any damage done, especially through the broken strands of the wires. However, the matter was al lowed to drop, the Mayor stating that it' was likely that he would take some action at the next meeting of the council. The time has gone by when it was considered necessary that a park should be securely fenced or railed off from the public street. No better evidence can be given of this than in the City of Sydney, where it migh...
Boats on the Lagoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Boats on the Lagoon. C. H. Manville was before the court at Wagga on the charge of fix ing a placard within the municipality, without first obtaining the necessary license from the council. The case is in connection with the advertise ment appearing on the sail of a boat on the YVollundry Lagoon. The case was adjourned for a week on the de fendant raising a point as to the council's jurisdiction over the waters of the lagoon. Clias. E. Palmer, municipal nuisances inspector, de posed that lie asked Manville, who had posted the advertisement, and defendant had said that he fixed it himself. Defendant had not applied for a bill-poster's license previous to the summons being taken out. De fendant contended that tlie lagoon was casual water, and, as such, the council had no control over it. The P.M. decided that the lagoon was not casual water, being within the municipality. On behalf of the council it was stated that there was no desire to unduly press the case ; it was only brought for...

Jl Shire asicf Municipality "The Land" will welcome discussion upon matters specially affecting sliires and country municipali ties, and will as far as possible, furnish specific infoixnation in answer to questions. Councils and the Referenda. VICTORIAN ACTION. FAR-REACHING POWERS. The municipalisation of Victoria is proposing to bring prominently under the notice of municipal ratepayers in all parts of Australia. The Shire Association lias been communicated with, and urged to take such action as may be deemed advisable. The professional opinion of Mr. ]£. F. Mitchell, K.C., is quoted to show that if Referendum No. 1 is carried the Federal authority will extend to local governing bodies as well as ordinary corporations. "As extend to local governing bodies as says Mr. Mitchell, "the City of Mel bourne (and of course all other cities), and all other municipal cor porations throughout the States will be entirely subject to the regulation and control of the Federal Par...
Appeal Courts. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Appeal Courts. The " Government Gazette" con tains a notification that a number of Appeal Courts, particularly for muni cipalities within the metropolitan suburbs, and the shires neai'est to the city, are to be held this year in the local council chambers. This is a step that %ve have advocated for a long time, and are glad to find that it has been brought to a successful issue. It gives a far better oppor tunity for ratepayers to appeal with less inconvenience, and, further, no other business is transacted at the court on that day, whereas in the past, appellants had to wait at the court house until the usual court business was over-often late in the afternoon, notwithstanding that the Appeal Court may have been fixed to commence at 10 o.m. A letter was received by Gunnedali * Council from a ratepayer on behalf of a number of others who intended appealing against their valuations, asking to be allowed seven days ex tra in which to appeal. Doubt exist ing in the minds of some of the...
