LAKE CHARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 25 April 1890

LAKE CHARM. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] A month ago Providence gave its a promise of a grand season for grass by sending us early autumn rains. As usual with the promises of. Providence in these northern districts, the promise is unful filled, for a providence of quite another kind has sent us its legions of locusts and lreaped all the benefits of the late rains, besides leaving a legacy of destruc tion for the ensuing spring in the form of the eggs of locusts buried just beneath the surface of the soil, only waiting for favor able conditions to be hatched out, and f rrm another invading army similar to that. of 1887, when hundreds- of acres of nheat were devoured by them. It is quite within the bounds of possibility, however, that unfavorable conditions for their pro creation may prevail, and in that case the crops will be spared. This season's hatching of fish in Lake Charm has been doomed to destruction thronugh some cause not easily explained. Thle shores of the lake are thick...

THE MURRAY RIVER QUESTION.. Tile dispute which arose many year.s ago beteen the colonies of New South Wales (C and Vistoria in regard to the ownership of ?'ntat Island, situated on the River Murray, near the junction of that river with the Loddiri; above Swan Hill,' threw. soin ini tiresting sidelights on the question of the ownership of the Murray itself, and as it ultimnately formed the subject of a joint refer ence to the judicial committee of the Privy Council, the facts are still readily accessible.

GUNBOWER ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 25 April 1890

GUNBOWER ISLAND. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). Ploughing is being carried on with vigor in Wee Wee Rup, Cohuna and other districts within easy reach of Gunbower, the late rains having proved a boon to our farmers. There is some talk of the saw mills resuming work soon, a consummation devoutly to be wished for, inasmuch as things are quiet here just now. The light of Gospel Truth is about to shine on our island, a Congregational minister having volunteered,to conduct Divine service here occasionally. It is to be hoped that his labors will bear fruit.     Snake stories are sometimes sensational, and our island is quite a Paradise or a Hades - whichever you will - as regards the reptiles. The other day two men, named respectively, Hewitt and Kenny, while taking a rest in the interval of hard work, had quite an adventure. One of them, whilst lying on the grass and munching a damper, experienced a rather peculiar sensation, and turning his head beheld a snake on...
