Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 26 November 1909
In Memoriam. SAVAGE.-In loving remembrance of my beloved husband and our dear father, who died 219th November, 1907. Cold lies the heart that once beat so fondly, How we miss his fond, loving care ; Lone is our home that once was so happy, &nbsp; &nbsp; No loving father is there. You are gone and we miss you, Sadly miss you, father dear ; But God will clasp the broken chain Closer when we meet again. Inserted by his, loving wife, Eliza, and children, Jack, Bridgie and Maggie.
The Yea Show. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 26 November 1909
The Yea Show. President C. Hamilton and his pains- taking secretary and committee are to be congratulated on the great success that attended the holding of the first agricul tural show in Yea. For a considerable time there has been a desire to form a society in Yea, and although last week's effort depended upon outside support, yet there were indications of greater things in the future. Certainly a majority of the prize money went out side, yet there were several of the residents who held more than their 'own against old exhibitors. This was parti cularly noticeable, and there is no deny ing the fact that next year greater things will result. A noticeable feature was the large number of exhibitors and prize takers from Alexandra and Mansfield. Unselfish people were not slow to acknowledge the great obligation that the Yea society was under to these two shires and it is safe to predict a more friendly feeling between the two shires in the future. The following- are the prize-takers f...
Correspondence. A VETERINARY SURGEON FOR ALEXANDRA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 3 December 1909
Correspondence.. A V~F1ERINARY SURGEON FOR ALEX ANl)RA. `,''. TO TIE EDITOR OP THE STANDARD. SIR,-May I ask permissicn to make a few remarks in your valuable paper re the above. I was glad` to see by your report of last committee meeting of the local P. and A. Association that the President (Mr. Lade).lad brought the mutter under the notice of the gentlemen who were present. I am quite satisfied that the appointment of a qualified man to reside in Alexandra, and who would be prepared to give'the whole of his time to the requirements of the stock owners of our shire, would be of incalculable benefit, and I think the time is opportune, for during, the last two years almost every stock ow ner to whom I have mentioned the matter has recognised the need of a vot. in the district. Personally I drin't favor an annual subscription of £5, but am rather inclined to a guinea a year, with a guarantee of,'say, £150, and the right of private practice. A concession of 50 per cent should be made to...

Silos. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 3 December 1909
. . os.. Mc Nelson, of Mount Pleasant station, is hbusy just now flling a 60 ton silo with green oats. This is the. second, silo of like capacity filled this season. Two years ago Mr Nelson experimented by digging a hole and tilling same with. 10 tons of turnip tops, thistles, green oats, etc.. The trial was.so successful that he regretted he had not made provision for double the quantity. There are at present two silos on the station, one erected by the Agricultural Department; the other by Mr Nelson. The latter cost considerably less thuan. that erected, by the department. Mr T. Robb, of Thornton, is preparing to fill his 60 ton silo, built last year. by Mr A. Kiddl, oF.Alexandra. Mr Robb intends to lill with maize, of which he has 12 acres. The silo will take from thrcu to four acres. The only regret is that lie has not one or two other silos of the same capacity, as hlie knows the value of preparin., in good season. All dairymen, AIr Robb says, will have to build silos.
