MURCHISON SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
MURCHISON SHOW. The season of shows is again with us. Commencing on 21st Sept. the annual show of the Royal Agricultural Society was soon in full swing, and, although Victoria is at present passing through a season of almost unparalleled drought, this great annual exhihition had ap parently lost none of its attractiveness to either the sightseer or the exhibitor. Entries for the Royal show this year es tablished a record in the way of numbers and exhibits were well up to the usual high standard in both quantity and quality. Visitors to the show on each succeeding day wefe numerous, and the gatetakings were well up to those of previous years. These are facts that demonstrate clearly that, although the season's pros pects are anything but encouraging to the man on the land—the man who is the principal supporter of the agricultural show—he nevertheless did not neglect to support the annual exhibition that is conducted for the purpose of - providing him with an opportunity of seeing all...
Murchison Show. WEDNESDAY NEXT. ENTRIES CLOSE TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
Mupehison Show. WEDNESDAY NEXT. ENTRIES CLOSE TO-MORROW. The fortieth annual show of the Mur chison Agricultural Society takes place in the society's picturesque and well appointed grounds on the banks of the Goulbum on Wednesday next, and, although the season is anything but favorable to such an exhibition, gives promise of being fairly successful. As mentioned in our issue of Friday last the committee has spared no efforts in the eudeavor to make the show as popular and enjoyable as usual, and despite the fact that farmers of the district have suffered considerably as a result of the long spell of dry weather, they have responded well in the way of subscribing towards the sho,w. Now that the various improvements and renovations in the yards are nearing completion the marked benefit they will be in the conducting of the Bhow is evident. The cattle pens— 70 in number—which have been erected at considerable cost, are equal to any in the State, and will see out fully a score of Bhowa ...
Leasing Stanhope Estate Land. Another 4,047 Acres. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
Leasing Stanhope Estate Land. Another 4,047 Acres. Under instructions-from the Water Supply Commission Messrs Weir & Coyle offered by public auction at the Rusliworth court-house on Tuesday afternoon last the right to graze 4,017 acres of what was once known as the Stanhope estate, for a period of twelve months. The conditions wore that the lessee was to pay all rates and taxes. It was further made clear by Mr Kendall, the district engineer, that the Commission would not supply any water for swamps or grass lands, as a supply had to be maintained to ensure the allotment to those who were already within the irrigation area and were subject to the compulsory charge. This fact, taken in conjunction with the present condition of the land and the dry season, militated against high prices, although the prices obtained were considered satisfactory. The lots offered realised as follows :— Parish ok Giroarre. 728 acres.—C. W. Taylor, Is 9d per acre. 317 acres.—J. P. Ryan, Is Gd per a...
PICKINGS FROM PUNCH. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
PICKINGS' FROM PUNOM; The Kaiser's is no longer a mailed fist, or if it is it has lost its punch; Colonel Legge lias carried things with a high hand since his return on the brink of war, and many mistakes have been saved by his decided methods of keeping his officers up to the mark. Those military man who have been re garding the service as chiefly a social institution have been found out by this crisis.- It need not surprise them if some drastic reforms come along when all danger is past. Russia has taken the largest number of prisoners, and Russia has the largest number of soldiers of her own to feed and clothe, and cover in some way or another. Fortunately, Russian re sources are enormous, but, enormous as they are, they are strained to the utmost to provide for her soldiers in the field and the vast number of prisoners she has taken. Seventy thousand Austrians were captured in one day. General Pau is keeping his hand in knocking the Germans about like nine pins, and now the sold...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
THE WAR. As far as Australia is concerned little is known of the progress of the war during the past week, and things arc much as they were seven days. ago. 11 is reported that the Germans still maintain the strong position which they took up on the River Aisne, in France, although it is claimed that the Allied forces have made some impression on the left flank of the enemy. The Belgians, who are said to have been reinforced by British troops, arc said to have been giving the Germans a little back during the week, and if the German retreat is to be cut off these forces will no doubt play an important part in effecting it. The Russians are reported to be con tinuing their successes in Austria, where they have been playing great havoc and have taken large numbers of prisoners. Advices to hand indicate that an enormous Russian army has been mass ed at five points on the German frontier for the invasion of Germany, and the latter appear somewhat disconcerted at this menace. With their h...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
To the Editor. Sir,—For weeks past I have been pes tered] with straying, starving cows, and am wondering whether there is a law in this country (as in other parts of the world) to prevent annoyance of this-sort to residents. These wretched animals roam the streets day and night and seem to open gates with ease. Woe betide the garden into which these ravenous^ brutes force their way. They have already licked the varnioh off my buggy, eaten the clothes and pegs off the line, and tossed me in the street as I cycle home in the dark. I do not blame the cows, for they are seemingly given over by their owners to take their chance. Why not shoot them and rid the town of a nuisance 1 Whose duty is it to carry out this humane act ? I will do it if the owners grant me permission in your nexb issue. -Yours, &c., GRIZZLER. Murchisuu, 28-9-14. The Bishop.—The" Lord Bishop of fcho Diocese will visit this district on Sunday, October 25th. His Lordship will hold- a Confirmation Service in Ch...

Welcome Home. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
Weleome Home. He was a pianist, scarcely out oi Mb teens. He had been sent abroad by wealthy friends for a four years' course in his chosen art; had there after spent a year on the concert stage, and behind a vanguard of newspaper reports of his success abroad, he was now coming home. "When his train drew into the sta tion and came to a stop, the pianist, evincing the artistic temperament in his hair as well as in his manner, de scended to the platform. At the same time the crowd of enthusiastic towns people drew aside to allow his proud but modest mother to be the first to welcome her son. When she had reached him, how ever, she suddenly gave a gasp and stood stock-still, staring at him. The next moment she burst into sobs and tell on his neck. The "unkindest cut of all" among unintentional sayings capable of a satirical application was that of an old pew-opener in a southern county. She was in attendance on the rector, the churchwardens, and a city archi tect, poking the woodwork ...

Shocking Fatal Acci dent. —:o: A shocking accident, by which Mr Irvine Darby, of the Football Club Hotel, Rushworth, met his death, oc curred on Wednesday evening last. From what can be gathered it seems that deceased, in company with Mr Hiram M'Nicol,. had been fishing at the minor outlet, and as this was the closing day of the season they had stayed somewhat late, together with others who had also been having a try. Deceased was driving a gig, and had reached a point'just on the Rushworth side oE the crossing over the main outlet channel on the Tatura road. Here, it appears, the driver of another vehicle came along and deceased pulled to one side to allow him to pass. Just what happened would be hard to say, but Mr M'Hicol states that the first he knew he was out on the road. On picking himself up lie saw deceased lying on the road, and on speaking to him he got no answer. He next turned him over and at once saw that he was seriously injured. A . remarkable feature about the whole...
