The Bluff Causeway. DEPUTATION TO THE SHIRE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
The Bluff Causeway. DEPUTATION TO THE SHIRE COUNCIL. On Wednesday afternoon, Messrs J. J. Dove, W. Little, A. Paulet, and G. Archbold, of Tyers, waited on the local shire council, and asked that the Bluff causeway should &nbsp; be re-built. Councillor Clarke introduced the deputation. &nbsp; Mr. J. J. Dove said the old causeway had outlived its usefulness and a new structure was required. &nbsp; It should be built higher &nbsp; than the old one, so as to allow the flood water to flow under it. The president: Is it past repair? &nbsp; Mr. Dove: I think so, as the logs are rotten. It is dangerous now. Mr. Paulet also said that a more substantial structure was required, and that it should be built several feet higher. The heavy timber for a new bridge could be obtained in the neighborhood within a mile of the present structure. The government would probably give a &nbsp; grant towards the cost. Mr. W.. Little said that itwas not advisable...

THE THIEF ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 18 August 1914
THE THIEF ABROAB. Residents of Trara!gon will need to keep a sharp look out for their property, as there appears to be an invasion of petty thief. The other night Mr. WV. Thomas', tailor, closed his shop door, leaving the key in it, in order to go down the ,street for a few minutes. ,When he came back he knissed a box of ties. and a pair of trousers. The ties have been found. The trousers are still missing. A week or two ago Mrs. Chaundy missed a purse con taining money, and it has not been recovered.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 18 August 1914
THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. Some time ago a schoolmaster in a country school asked his,pupils to write an essay on cows. IHere is the "effort" of a farmer's son: The cow is a no-bull and kine-heart ed creature. The man who looks after cows is called a cowherd, but he is no cow ard who looks after cows. Cowes has a regatta every year; yet the cow is not a nautical animal. It is not true that she steers with her adders. - It is reported that the cow sat at the head of the table in the Ark (so say the ark-cow-ologilsts), because ste was the only anirmal that could calv. The cow is a 3oo'1 mother, and wi!l look calf-ter her c"alf. Cows rarely ride in carriages, but a fine calf has frequently been seen de scending from a tramcar. Cows exist by means of the oxygen in the atm3sphere (I got this from a professor at Oxford). By the cow is the milk made. I know this because I have often seen the milimoid by the cow. The cow has been introduced into song. There is an old song called "The Soldier's S...

PLAYING WITH REVENUE THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 18 August 1914
PLAYING WITH REVENUE . THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS The canon's deadly roar,has an nounced the opening of a g:reat war in Europe, and distant.as the thunder is it should convince the Australian people and their poli tical leaders that the utmost cau tion is essential in all matters of finance. Great schemes, gorious and inglorious, propoundeAl by the rival leaders, and involving the expendiutre of vast sums, must stand over until peace is assured. To those folk who had hoped that the tariff would be thrown into the melting pot, and re-cast in the old haphazard fashion, the greed iest and the most importunate get ting the highest duties from the parliamentarians, who are woefully ignorant of detail, this is a cruel disappointment. The cup seemed very near their lips. It has fal len to the ground: With a cyni cal indifference to their own fiscal beliefs, Labor members agreed that the manufacturer should have just what mess of pottage he deman ded in return for his vote. The coming of the war...

The Traralgon "Journal" had re ported 'Mr. J.. Chappell to have said, when introducing Mr. Frank Anstey, 'at the next election there would be a pledged Labor candi date against Mr. J. Bennett." No minations were invited later on, and the "Age"' reported that se veral nominations had been recei ved; and a. selection would. ,be made at an early date. " Where is is the Labor candidate ?" asked Mr Bennett. "Why has he not been brought forward? Who pulled the wires ?" Mr Quinlan, secretary of the Omeo branch of the P.L.C., replied: "I can tell you. He was withdrawn, because it he came for wward we would only be making you a gift of the seat." (Loud laughter). Mr. Bennett: Exac ly.

The presi dent (Councillor Whittakers) and Councillor Pettit and Mr. West" (the shire secretary) were present. Referring to Mr. Crooke's idea of a flood water channel, . Mr. Gluth said it would be a very ex pensive job, and probably cost about ,£20,000.
