Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

Ovens Vale> (From Our Correspondent.) In my Last I fell into an error re garding the freak of Nature. It was bred by Mr " J.'' not Mr "T." M( Cor mack. Also, uot iu one instance did a crop at Merriaug Estate reach 10 or 12 bags to the acre. The highest output was only eight bags. Now it has long since been the proud boast of' landholders that the soil along the Ovens River was second to none in productiveness. This be ing so, what is happening to bar the way to better results being ob tained ?, Is it not proof positive that some agency is at variance with. Nature ? Who will endeavor to solve the question ?

Saturday Half Holiday. To the Editor: [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

Saturday Half Holiday. To the Editor:. Shy—I have read some letters in the '• Mail " on this subject, ancl have come to the conclusion that if they were not written by the one person they were at any rate inspired from the same source. YYuat strikes me about them particularly is the selfishness shown, for these people like the' half holiday on Saturday for themselves, but do not want us go have it. Then, again, surely our employers know what is be3t for thorn, and if things were as repre sented surely they would make some move to improve matters. My opinion is that things as they are suit everybody as well ■ as can possibly be arranged, and I hope no change vrill bo made.— -Tours faithfully, - . SHOP EMPLOYEE.

The. board realised the gravity of the government permitt ing good agricultural land to be given over to dredging, but not all of the me bers were prepared to believe that the effects of river silta tion were what they were repre sented to be, or that river pollution was entirely due to dredging opera tions. ' . . The most important of the recom mendations that the board is mak ing is that no dredging leases shall be granted for land of a. value of over ^3.
