This ho carried home In the night, and, taking the op portunity of the kitchen being empty, he hunted round till he found tho tea caddy, which was nearly full.

Blessings of Irrigation. STATE GOVERNOR ON TOUR [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 4 December 1914
Blessings of Irrigation; I STATU GOVERNOR ON TOUR 'flic State Governor( Sir Arthur. Stanley) wrs greatly impressed 1>y what lie saw of the irrigation settle inents in the Goulbnrn Valley last week. H is remarkable tl at tlies Vice-Regal and other distinguished tourist parties are never brought on by Mr Mead to the big Column dis trict. Is'nt local hotel accominoda tion good enough ? Is'nt the dis trict advanced enough? When questioned on this point the other day by a representative of the '' Far mer's Weekly Mr Mead suggest ed the inconvenience from want of a local railway. Then why not hur ,ry 011 the railway ? The contast which Sir Arthur :found between the irrigated and the noil-rrigated lands struck him as be ing marvellous.

RENOVATING LAWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 4 December 1914
RENOVATING LAWNS. If you have a lawn that needs rono rating. It should bo attended to with out further delay, especially If It la at all weak or patchy, or infested with woods or moss to any extent. The first thing to bo done is to go over the whole area with a sharp toothed rake, loosening the surface a little, and scratching out as much of the weeds or moss as possible. Then loosen the surface of any bare or weait patches slightly, and sow a little frosl1 grass seed on each, afterwards put ting on a dressing about lin. thick or rather more, of some light, fine sandy, yet rich, compost; this shouh) oot bo npplled quite so thickly on th* newly-sown patches. This treatment will renovato and strengthen the grass greatly.
The Water Question. ALARMING CONDITION OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 4 December 1914
The Water Question. ALARMING CONDITION OF THE MURRAY. The weather has continued com paratively cool and moist during: tlie past week, and smart thunder showers are reported in some of the outlying districts. About ten points have fallen at Column, but at Gunbower there has been over an inch. Some concern is mean while being felt at the parlous con dition of the Murray. Rumors are current tliat recent storms resulted in a sudden rise of its waters by 3 or 4 inches. .This is not borne out, however, by the carefully-taken measure ments at the Column headworks. These show that the river is steadily falling at the rate of an inch a day, and that it is already two feet be low summer level. At Nyah the Murray has ceased to flow, and the Government pump at Nyah has been stopped in consequence. In places flocks and herds cross and re-cross the stream on foot. The look-out is therefore a serious one. It is fortunate that New South Wales is not drawing to any appreciable extent upon Murray sup...
