ST. BERNARD'S SCHOOL CON CERT, BACCHUS MARSH. On Wednesday evening last this annual event was successfully held in the new school hall,` and a' very fine concert room it made, too, which was most tastefully decorated with evergreens, pot plants, flags, &c. The flags also made a patriotic pro scenium for the roomy stage, which was well lighted, and also decorated witli good effect. Thifs3 stage is an ingenious contrivance of the archi tect, and it can be used as a class room by enclosing it" ith sliding doors. The hall was well filled, and tihe audience- comfofrably seated on chairs, which form part of the furn ishing of the hall. The programme rendered was .a lengthy one, and it- was not com pleted until '11 p.in.-rather late for the young scholars. All the items were well rendered, and showed signs of effective and kindly tuition by the Sisters of St. Joseph. There were such a number of items that it is almost impossible to make special mention of them all, but the progranm...

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 58. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 18 December 1915
BACOU.. ' H S MARSH. -.°By W. W.ILLIAMs, B.A. No. 58. As the locality is named Bacchus Marsh, 'naturally the history of the faniily of Bacchus is of interest. I find Saturday, May 30, 1874, a re port of the proceedings of Ballarat Farmers' Chlub, and a Mr. Bacchus, whom I believe to be a son of Cap tain Bacchus. read two papers, one on the "Cape Sheep Bush"-pentzia. virgatu; and another on "Fluke in sheep." Later on as he visits the Marsh, at the opening of the rail way, but was not invited rto speak on that occasion. This was regret table, because lie undoubtedly would have made family references, which if recorded would.have been of ser vice to the compiler of the history of the Marsh. June 27th, Sunday, 1874. A great day for local Catholic community. Opening services of St. Bernard's Church were conducted by Rev. Fathers O'Callaghan, Gough and Kelly. Tke singing of choir of St. Bridget's was said to be of a high class character. The preacher was Father Kelly. The criticism of the...
GET AFTER THE FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 December 1915
GET AFTER THE FLY. Each fly killed in the early spring adds greatly to the comfort and safety -of every home. Figures work ed worked out by investigators show what it means to swat the fly early in the season. There is the poten tial, possibility of the appalling total of nearly six billion flies, produced in a season by one female fly which has lived over the winter. On the average, the first brood from one wintered-over female will give rise to 120 flies, which increase rapidly until they reach the enormous total of 5,598,720,000,000 in six months. Of course all of these do not live. Soiue die naturally; others are killed by man, birds and enemies. The feet, hairy legs and body of each, fly are laden with bacteria of almost every kind. It is estimated that each fly on the average carries about 1.,500,000 germs, so the value of killing the fly which has sur vived the winter is readily seen. All flies breed in filth, either de calying animal or vegetable matter. The larva requires a...
