Jerilderie. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 31 October 1913

Jerifderio. Wc have been asked by one in terested to publicly draw the at tention of the civic fathers to the pollution of: the water in the creek. Although.the said pollu tion—in the form of a dead dog floating in the water—is below the town weir, yet it is most of fensive to the dwellers on the banks of the creek, as well as I he travelling public. From in quiries made, it seems some boys deliberately laid hold of a dog, lied the legs with wire, and threw it over the Albion bridge into the water. The animal was drowned but after some days the body rose to the surface. As there is n ) current in' the creek now, the flow being stopped, the body floated, and remained where it had been thrown. The stench from it was very offensive. ■ The police are now investigating the matter, and we think our local Council should do the same, so that an example might be made. Judging by the number.of sum monses already issued for the non-registration of dogs, we fear that some at least paid no atten...

O'Conncll, O.S.H., prior to his departure from the district, and also to present him with a purse of sovereigns as a token of the esteem in which he was held.

Father O'Con: nell had not spared himself at a'l whenever the welfare of his com munity was concerned, and he must have been to_-some extent, compensated for ' his untiring efforts by seeing the large cumber- wlio assembled ip bid htm farewell, and hearing their expressions of sincere regret at his departure.

COBRAM. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 31 October 1913

COBRAM. Mr. Gordon Anderson | who re turned from a motor trip along the northern frontier of Victoria from Cobram to Mildura, gives, an interesting account of the doleful state of the country be tween Swan Hill and the city of citrus fruits and sultanas. Very little rain has fallen" this j^ear in those -parts,' and Mr. Anderson [says, that the lono- stretch of :coiinlry between the above named towns is in the grip of a severe drought. . For miles and miles he saw nothim? but grass less paddocks and bare land which was said to be sown with cereals, while the sheep, cattle and horses were ill a starving condition. The quality of the soil, he says, is apparently much the, same as in our district, but without an adequate rainfall it is, of course, of little value. Our informant traversed hundreds of miles during the trip, and he saw no other part to compare with ours for wealth of crops and grass. "It was an eye-opener to me," he said, to see so many miles of country in such a desti tut...
