A MUNICIPAL QUARRY. MATTER DISCUSSED AT SPECIAL MEETING OF THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

A MUNICIPAL QUARRY. MATTER DISCUSSED AT SPECIAL MEETING OF THE COUNCIL. As briefly mentioned in last issue, the Narracan Shire Council dis cussed the question of establishing a municipal quarry* at a special meeting held on Monday, 28th ult. Having inspected the site of the proposed quarry (at Lloyd's, Mos quito Creek), councillors reas sembled at the Hall, when a reso lution for the establishment of a quarry was immediately launched, Cr McGregor expressed the hope that a quarry would be established in the shire. The motion submitted was agreeing to the acceptance of rails at £4< 17s 6d per ton, but he did not know the distance a ton of rails would go. They should not | go in for 601b. rails unless the same were to carry railway trucks. He thought they could get rails of half the weight and at less cost. They were going into the matter some what hastily. There was certainly a great body of stone at the spot inspected, but he would like to know something with regard to the...

GRAZING OH SHIRE ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

GRAZING OH SHIRE ROADS. 4 The question of grazing stock on shire roads was farther discussed at a special meeting of the council, held on Monday, 28th ult. At the last ordinary meeting, a deputation was introduced and heard, requesting that the system be abolished; and at the special meeting a petition (signed by about a dozen ratepayers of Trafalgar) was presented, requesting that such grazing be continued. Or. McGregor said that, in accord ance with the notice of motion, he thought the council ought to take into consideration and arrive at some reason able and equitable decision in the matter of grazing stcck on shire roads. The cattle which wandered about did con siderable damage to roads and fences, and one could not go anywhere without seeing stock that were not being licensed. Coming to the townships, a deputation had waited upon the council pointing out the great disadvantages and annoyance eaiised by cattle being allowed to run in the same. They were a real nuisance. Immedia...

Moondarra. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

Moondarra. (From Our Own Correspondent). The season is good for grass and crops, and the cream output is increasing. Kangaroos are doing much damage to young oats intended for hay, as also are ■wombats and wallabies. The timber industry is about at a stand still, orders having almost ceased as a result of the war. The Patriotic Social held recently netted £6 2s. Half the money was sent to the Patriotic Fund, and half to the Belgian Eelief Fund. A farewell social was given on 2nd inst. to the brothers Watson, who were very old resi dents. It was well attended, and quite suc cessful. A considerable area will be put under potatoes and maize this season, as it is be lieved these may be scarce next 3'ear. Miss Gawley (formerly teacher in Jubilee State School) is now in charge of Childers State School, where I believe the attendance is only eight. A Moondarra resident was in charge at Childers in 1903, when' the atten dance was 41. The decline is said to be partly due to the rabbit peBt a...

RAISING THE DAIRY STANDARD. The Necessity for Cow Testing. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

RAISING THE DaiRY STANDARD. The Necessity for Cow Testing. Mr. W. J. Byrue, a well-known New Zealand authority on daii'y farming, contributed- an interesting paper on the above subject at a recent meet ing of the New Zealand National Dairy Association. We extract the following from the paper, as it will be of interest.to our own farmers: — The annual production of butter fat per cow in the Dominion is about l"601b., and it is not too much to as sert that .this standard could be raised to 26'Olb. or 3001b. if proper methods were followed, if we can only raise it to 2601b., the increase would mean an addition tp the value of our dairy produce of £3,500,000 per annum. If a 3001b. standard is attained the in crease would amount to £5,000,000 per annum. When the carrying capacity of the land under oc cupation is increased by intense cultivation, these amounts will be con siderably increased. Denmark has set a worthy example in herd improve ment, which might with great advan tage be follo...

UNIFORMITY OF TYPE. Some Suggestions for Its Attainment. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 October 1914

'10 ; : ; , • IJ NI FORM iTY OF , TYPE. Some Suggestions for Its Attainment. One of the greatest advantages of. raising pure-bred stock is,' or should ~ be, the resultant uniformity of type, size and production exhibited by the flock or herd in the course o: a few years (writes R.O.B.). Since ai! the individuals are of simi'ar size, pro ductiveness, habits, constitution, and appetites, the general care and man agement are very much simplified Considering this, it is remarkable that a great many of our herds can only be classed- as. a miscel|.uuK.us collection of. pure-breds, representing arious types more or useful; ' the whole presenting a weird con glomeration. Perhaps half-a-dozen in dividuals are of outstanding merit, and the balance "tails oft" to some thing far below mediocrity. . , The cause of this is usually to'be traced to poor judgment in selecting " ' the foundation stock when the herd was being got together.

THE CONQUERING HOBBLE. When first I saw a liobble skirt, it gave me quite a shock! My eyes it positively hurt To see that sort'of frock! The reason may have been because It seemed a trifle naughty— The dame.who dared',to wear it was Both fat and fair—and forty! When next I saw the hobble, it : Seemed good to look upon, . But struck me still as scarcely fit For her who had it on; The wearer looked like, I declare, An elongated ball, For she, although divinely fair, Was not divinely tall! But now that slender English maids The style have made their own, They've made upon my heart such raids As ne'er before I've known! Their suppleness and grace, which they With care concealed' of yore, Thanks to the hobble, they display As ne'er was done before! Therefore I sing the hobble's praise, 'Twas sent for man's delight! My pleasure 'tis to stand and gaze Whene'er one heaves in sight; But only when I am alone, For when my wife is near (She turns the scale at sixteen stone) I say: "How shocking...

" DOWN WITH WAR." GERMAN SOCIALISTS' APPEAL. FOR PEACE. WERE THE PARTY LEADERS BRIBED? Surrounded by soldiers and living all his life in the, military atmosphere of Berlin, the Kaiser Wilhelm was for years regarded as the menace of peace in Europe. Highly placed Eng lish and -French diplomatists can tell how exceedingly difficult it was to keep the curb on the crack brained monarch at times when the war mania has seized him and he has be come possessed of nothing but his own ambitions and .imagination. With the military clique urging him on he would have plunged Europe into the present heil-lire years ago' but one thing restrained-him and his advisers. There has uprisen in Germany a po litical party which has gained im mense popularity with the masses, who have at the risk—and often-times they have suffered the penalty—of dis I pleasing the Kaiser, preached their own gospel, and who have attained a power that not even the Kaiser could easily despise. This was the well-or ganised soc...
