BY RAIL TO PAKENHAM. "'The long way .to Pakenham" nvror looked bettor than it does at presenut. On New Year's Day, after a night out celebratin , we caught tao Gippsaland train at Flinders street. There woro four of us, all jovial spirits, and we lhad a first-class car to ourselves, which was somewhat surprising, but I understand we were in a second division train, which cccounted for the seating accom modation. As we sped along nothing bet bricks and mortar caught the eye until we got past Oakleigh, and coming to Olayton we saw acres of flowers, ovidrently cultivated for the florists, and we thought of the old songs and ayings, '' A rose by any other ntmo nould smell as sweet," " A primrose by .he river's brim was but a primrose still to him, and nothing more," and • There is a flower that bloometh," es sung by the late Armes Beaumont. But we were not near enough to the choice blooms to be sentimental, and we could only admire them from tho train. Bau " Distance lends enuchant meet...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

CORRESPONDENCE. TO TUE EDITOR. SIR,--I would like to ask space in your valuable paper to draw atten tionto a paragraph which appeared in the Pakenham news of your last issue, re the Farmers' Cart Horse Race at Nar Nar Goon sports meet ing. Your report did not -'y what distance the load had to .be drawn. The owner of the horse, Mr Little, was told before he started the dis tance he was required to pull the load. If any unauthorised person stopped him, even under the plea of cruelty to animals, before the dis tance was travelled, the conditions were not complied with. The race has been on the programme for the last four years, and the conditions have been the same, as can be proved. Where the horse was trained is of no consequence to the judge. The horse Danube, not com plying with the conditions, could not be declared the winner.-Yours, etc., W. J. CARNEY. Tynong, 4/r/15.

NAR NAR GOON. The holiday season has passed over pleasantly. Good crowds at tended the Nar Nar Goon, :Koowee rup and Pakenhama sports meetings, and patrons appeared to thoroughly enjoy the outings. The annual picnic was held on the hills back of Tynong on New Year's Day and was attended by a large crowd of local residents, who spent a very pleasant and enjoyable day. Stacking is now in full swing, the weather being very favorable for the last week, good drying winds and warm sunshine thoroughly drying the hay. A number of stacks have had to be taken down, owing to having been carted in too soon in the damp weather. The contract has been let for the building of a new convent school at Iona at a cost of £750 The build. ing is now in course oferection.

PAKENHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915

rAKENHAM. Th.e sports meeting held on New Years Day was a very great success, the attendance being a record one and the gate takings exceeded £43. It was decidedly pleasant to see-many people who have left the district turn up for the occasion. The whole management deserves the greatest credit for the manner in which the arrangements were carried through. One did occasionally hear regrets that there was not more accommo dation, but on the other hand, if there was a grandstand etc., a great deal of the free and easy enjoyment would be spoilt. For an.event of this des cription the time keeping, according to the program, was excellant and it would be invidious to single out any members for special mention, at the same time undoubtedly -Mr Norman Webster deserves a "pat on the back." Several properties in the district have recently changed hands and the growing popularity of-the district is demonstrated by the enhanced values obtained by the vendors.

The estimated cost of reconstructing that portion between the 5 cross roals and the shire boundary (2) miles) metal 15ft wide and regrading, to gether with a enlvert at the crossing t Lougmuir's would be L4625, 6 per cent on this amount would be L277 10 per annum, the cost of maintenance would be about L20 per annum, or the total cost of say L300 per annum for a good road. It would be impossible by a system of maintenance to bring the existing load into proper shape as the grading is bad and the cross section high in places nrd low in others.
