NEXT SEASON'S WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 6 September 1904
NEXT SEASON'S WHEAT.' • Sour apprehension has been exhibited lately among people who have dealings in grain, as to the backwarducss of wheat, esageoial y in the north-west sand west, and the general. " cussedness" of the season all round. The record harvest of some months back induced a large number of farmers to put more acres under crop for the coming season than they had been able to do in the past. -It is still much too early to hazard a guess at the number of sores under wheat now, as com pared with previous years; unfortunately the machinery for asoertaining the data is very imperfect in this State. Bit very roughly speaking, there should be an increase of about five per eet. on last year's figures. The fat mers got their ploughing done early in the season, and, noawithstnuditng the hardnuess f the ground;' had a ged deal of it sown before the light rains f;ll, but'ithe excessive oold n the north and the senbticg ent dry spell in the west kept everything bobk for weeks and'eek...

GUNDAROO [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 6 September 1904
GUNDAROO A stir has been caused in local mining circles by the pegging out of large dredging areas on Brook's Creek and Yass river near this township. Mining Warden Thomas has paid a visit to the ground, and all the necessary formalities will probably be completed within the next few days. English capital is said to be behind the venture, and it is currently rumoured that a dredging plant has been ar- ranged for Mr. Dunn, a mining expert from Melbourne, visited the locality a few weeks back, and his report has evidently been of a favourable character. Whether the whole affair will end like most of the past mining booms in this district, time alone will tell. The residents of Back Creek intend pre- senting a petition through the member for the district to the Public Instruction De- partment, asking that the half-time school at Mugwill be converted into a fall-time &nbsp; public school.
Destruction of Rabbits. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 6 September 1904
Destruction of Rabbits. aI. H. SonBY, general manager of the Pas. teur. Vaccinee.O-C,?, . -of Paris, on being interviewed n Melbourne the other day as to the apph~ability'of the Pasteur methods to the deatrnction of rabbits stated that the Pasteur Institute was interested in anti-tox ines and vaccines as curative and preventive agents. Ten years eago field rate and mice were a scouFr e in various parts of France. The institute'was asked to see what could be done to suppress them. A destructive virus was prepared which, though harmless to other animalp, removed about 95 per cent. of the rodente. A similar result could be attained with regard to rnbbits in Australia, but,it would be necessary that the virus shoiild be 1 repared here, as it was sodelicate that it would perish on the long voyage from France. A branch would have to be estab lished on the spot, and experts brought from the ltead.institute. It would not be necess ary to catch the!abbits and inoculate them. Bait.was laid in...
ANOTHER FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 6 September 1904
ANOTHER FIRE. On last Tuesday night a shed, the property of Mr. A. McDonald, of Royalla, near Rob Roy, was completely demolished by fire. There is no suspicion of incendiarism, yet by the report furnished the Coroner, an inquiry is deemed necessary, and Mr. Gale will proceed to the scene of the fire to- morrow morning where an investigation will be held. From particulars to hand we learn that early on the night of the fire Mr. Mc- Donald had retired to bed, and his wife who sat up till about 11 o'clock, heard the crack- ling of fire in the direction of the shed, and upon making an examination suddenly dis- covered that the building was on fire. She immediately called the assistance of her husband, who arrived at the scene of the fire before the flames had spread. First of all Mr. McDonald calmly released a dog that was tied up in the shed, and then, with the assistance of his wife, removed from the burning building a sulky, buggy, cart, and some bags of oats.
