EARLY TRARALGON. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
EARLY TRARALGON. --- To the Editor. Sir,-In Mr. West's narrative re the several bridges pver Traralgon creek, there was one old stringer bridge (I believe the first) some dis tance below the present Long Bridge. The late Mr. Jas. Peck was Icrossing with a mob of fat buir locks from Wandocka, now the property of Mr. C. W. G. Whit takers, during a flood in the creek when the bridge broke, drowning 25 or 26. The balance brought d16 per head in Melbourne. I am writing entirely frotn memory, but 'I believe it was in the 60's, so you will see that beef must have been dear then, as it is now. There is also an embankment between the Long Bridge and the rise westerly, containing a cul vert within two bed box logs length, about 35 (eet, 24 x 26 in ches-the heaviest pieces of hewn timber I ever carted on a bullock waggon. Yours, etc., JAS. BUNSTON.

THE FARMER'S INCOME. HOW TO DOUBLE IT. THE VALUE OF TESTING. A PRACTICAL EXPERT'S EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
THNE FARMER'S INCOME. HOW TO DOUBLE IT. THE VALUE OF TESI'ING. A PRACTICAL EXPERT'S EX PERIENCE. New .Zea'and has long been con sidered to be. in advance of Aus tralia in the prices realised for her butter on the London mar ket, consequently any information which we can gain from the Dom imnon is worthy of serious study. During the last month, Mr. W. J. Byrne, 'the New Zealand expert in herd testing, has been visiting Vic toria for the purpose of exchang ing ideas, and to see if he could gain any informat:on which would be beneficial to the industry in his own country. He gave expression to his views to an "Argus" re porter, in which Mr. Byrne said: "'I was imnpressed with the quality of the Colac land, but not with the 'ows I saw. Perhaps I should'nt say so when the people treated me so! well; but I saw very few good cows there. At the Colac High School I dlid sel one with a 3401b. butter-fat record, but there do not seem 'to be many of her sort mn the State. The figures quoted by ...
MANUFACTURE OF STEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
IANUFAC,TURE OF STiEEL. - -0 At Tuesday's bitting of the Inter State Commission, Mr. G. Delprat, general manager of thi zr?ken Hill Proprietary Company, said his company Wvas now engaged in lay ing but extensive Iron and steel works near Newcastle. He had made flo application for duty, be cause when he contemplated mak ing structural steel and steel rails he thought that if he could not live without a duty he could not hlive at all. He thought this after he had made his estimate of the cost, and he had now no reason to doubt his ability to do so. He would be able to do so without extra duties. With one blast furnace he would would be able to make 120,000 tons of steel a year. He would not ask for any additional duty on rails, structural steel, steel bars and so forth, and could manufacture at a profit without a duty on a small scale, but the existing duty or an increased dluty would enable the steel 'indutrsy to be established on ja broader basls, which he desired.

Traralgon Breaks the Ice. BIG SCORING. The last football match for the season, as far as TI'ara'gon is con cernedl, "as played -,n tihe Traral gon ground ..,r.'.y betwe,: the local team and Bairns:'ale. De spite the fact that the game had no bearing on the result of the competition, a large crowd wit nessed the play. The Traralgoii town band was present, and en livened the proceedings with a few selections, which were mnuch ap preciated. Traralgon were the first to score, but not before two attacks had_ been repulsed. Tomn. Milligan did the trick with a neat place kick. Bairnsdale then prevailed, and Smith had an oplportunity, but his shot went wide of the mark. The play was immediately transferred to the other end, where Grant was very prominent for the visitors, and succeedea in turning an attack. In the centre Richards and Coates were 'seen to advantage, so was Day (Bairnsdale) Traralgon pi!cd up their score quickly. Wickhami scored a goal; T. Milligan a be hind; D. Ryan a goal; ...

FISH HATCHERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
FISH HATCHERY. Some time ago the Traralgon Fish and Game Protection Society, asked the Government to estab *ish a fish hatchery i?e e district for the purpose of ra:si g Gipps land perch and t-ro.t. t ' e eqvest was not granted, b.t e 'o learnr that the Government has deter mined to estab ish a srnal' I atchcry? for fish at the head of the Mor well river, in order to give a.trial to see which system is the most expensive-the cultur cf fish in the country, or the de'ive: of fish from a central h.t. cry The amount fo- the const u t.o, of the hatchery ',-ll be placed on the next supp.ementary estimates. This new departure will very probably lead to very; important developments, and the future rais ing bf fish for stocking the streams in the districts in which they are required.

METHOD IN DAIRYING [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
METHOD IN DAIRYING -0-- Efficiency is required now even among cows. Mr. W. J. Byrne, the expert in herd testing, has made a visit of inspection through Victoria, and has brought to hlight sordie interesting facts. He has shown tat scientific sehlection is necessary if dairy farming is to be profitable. The old haphazard me thod must be abandoned. Under them he showed that in one case there was ar eturn of a profit of £5 17s a cow, and in another a profit of only 4s a cow; but it was all a matter of chance. The far mer 'did not know why one cow, yielded a handsome profit, while" another gave returns which were less than the cost of her feed. Mr. Byrne insists on the fact that strict method is required, and that it is n'ot merely the number of cows on a farm that spells pro 5perity. A farmer must use scien tific methods if he wishes co make Shis 'farm a success.
