FOK WOMEN ESSENTIAL THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 23 February 1916

~ FOK WOMEN (By "Ajnbrohina") ESSENTIAL THINGS. To worn nml think ho that each thing has its due amount' of consideration is perhaps tho hardest task that confronts a newly-made housewife, especially where sho is fresh i'rom ollice or kin dred' work, and each day, unless she puts up a persistent fight, she will lind the habit of wrong estimation growing stronger. No one can rightly judge the mono tony and loneliness of housework un less they have passed the probationary stage, which is generally tho first six months, nor can tliey imagine how eas ily little things ercep into tho places that should rightly be reserved for things of greater import. Crowds of us aro content that' the Management of a house shall consist in washing up and dusting, shopping and sowing, and we wonder that the truo atmosphero is missing. We forget to make the homo a rest ful, pleasing influence, that will lcavo its mark for ever on its inhabitants. Wo do not trouble to give each room u personality—we forget...

TREE PLANTING ON ROADS [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 23 February 1916

TREE PLANTING ON ROADS On the stock routes of the Western district the absence of wind breaks and dust breaks has been the cause of much discom fort to travellers by mad and to homesteads adjacent to the high ways. The Minister of Forests stated that it is his intention to summon a special conference of municipal representatives to con sider the question of making more practical use of these three chain highways. He contem plates the planting of the sides of the roadwiays with trees, which would give protection from the sun, would diminish the dust, and would eventually yield valuable timber. Wherever there are 3 chain roads, the Minister is of opinion that two chains of the width should be. devoted to the purpose of afforestation, leaving the chain in the middle for stock and ordinary road traffic. In the case of the farmer,, what is meant for caution, so often proves quite the reverse, and is actually extravagance, weeing that it costs liim in the long run more than he can afford ...

BURNING OFF STUBBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 23 February 1916

BURNING OFF STUBBLE. Farmers may not be aware of the fact, that it is an offence against the law to burn off stub ble without first giving notice of the intention to do so, and that the penalty is a fine not exceed ing £100. It i8 the legal duty of each farmer intending to burn off to give notice in writing twenty four hours previously of his in tention to all owners of contigu ous lands, and it is his public j duty to insert a notice in a news paper to that effect also. When the public is in no way notified of the .intention to burn off, towns people and neighbors, when they •ee the smoke rising, very often rush off on a useless trip of some miles. On the other hand, a fire may start in a crop or in a stubble in which wheat is still stacked, and the man who has been on a fool's errand a few times is con vinced that some farmer is hav ing a burn off. In this way some thousands of pounds worth of damage might be done on almost any farm in the district without being stopped by outside...

FATAL DRIVING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 23 February 1916

FATAL DRIVING ACCIDENT. A sad fatal driving accident occurred near Cressy last Wed nesday, when a farmer named John Spencer, managing Mr H. C. Ferguson's farm at Berrybank for Mr W.H. Edgar, of Colac.met his death in a terrible manner. From what can be ascertained, it appears Spencer came into Cressy laBt Wednesday morning with a waggon and two horses. He left Cressy to go home between 12 and 1 o'clock, and was last seen and spoken to on the road by Mr P. Howell, when everything then waa all right. It must have been shortly afterwards that the acci dent occurred, but no one really saw how it happened. It is sur mised that the horses bolted, and ran the waggon into a fence,that one of the wheels struck a post, - and threw one of the horses over the fence. Deceased must have got jammed between the shafts, as when spoken to by Mr Howell he was then sitting in the middle of the shafts. Whether deceased got struck by a post or not can only be conjectured, as when he was found he was stil...

Of this to tal the Western Plains Farmers' Co-operative Society has received about 14,000 bags, J. H. Chester field about 10,000, and S. F.Leigh about 2000.

An exchange has been granted by the postal officials, and is now awaiting erection. Harvesting and carting wheat is now finished in this district. The yield per acre more than ex ceeded farmers' anticipations.' The Poliah farmers finished stripping last week, and are how busy carting wheat to Duverney railway station.
