Boolara. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser — 7 February 1890
gooltrn. (nD oun TR.AiVLL.IO ItEPr?r.,R). The sanitary condition of a town should certninly be the first thought of those whoi . have to live in it, I;bt I ntl hound to.say the fault not so often lies with the in habitants themselves as those holding the reigns of eieal government. Councils as a rule are singularly devoid of interest for any place a distance from the Shire IhIll. Here is an instance. In a little town like Boolara (where, by thn way, Health OTficers'i visits are like Angels, few and farn between), a stagnanlt pool is allowed to: remain unattended to, and the inhabitants are compelled to "breathe contagion to the worldl" os ILimlet puts it. Directly behind Clarkoe's Hll, a plhce of pubille amnusments, this dirty pond is allowed to remain. What wonder that Mr. Biles has hlal the misfortune to 'bire to send his daughter to Melbourne, snufering front typlhol in its most ,mnlignant forl.L Eitlher the council as n irloe, or its oflicers are to ilame for snch a state of thi...

In a fcw weeks it will be *defiqitely known whether brown coal is or is not to play ani important 'part: in -the future of Victoria. Everything at siresent seems to point to an affirmative -reply to this query, and in that ease Boolarra will soon hIave to hew down her forest erironlient to prepare for the .manch of civilization consequent upon her valuable mines being in full working :order.
