TATURA SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

TATURA SHOW. The 40th annual show of the Tatura Agricultural Society was held on Tue. day aud Wednesday last, and, despite the prevaling drought conditions, proved to be a most successful exhibition. The j *eather, although on the warm side, was ideal for show purposes, and consequently the attendance of the public was moat satisf-ctory.' The gate takings amounted to £80, which is equal to the sum taken on the occasion of the 1913 anuud show. General entries numbered over 1500, and the exhibits forwaid were well up to the usual high standard in both quantity and quality. Even in the good old days —the days when the Taiuia show rec >g nised no superior in the state—the Bhow of hunters, sheep and puultry was not better than at tbis year's exhinition. In other classes there is no doubt the -dry nature of the season adversely affected the exhibits, but, taken as a whole, this, year's exhibition must be voted a pro nounced success. ' The number of exhibitors from this district was not...

Increasing the Irrigable Area. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

Increasing- the - Irrigable--Area. The proposal of the State Rivets and Water Supply Commission to allot an additional 50,000 acre feet of water to the Rodney irrigation district was discussed ' ab a meeting of farmers and others interested held at the North Murchison State school recently. The attendance was large, including, in addition to j£cal farmers, many irrigationists from i?°" lamba district. • The .chair was occupied, by Or Pogue (Rodney Shire). Althoogh the majority of North Murchison farmers do not come within the proposed area, keen interest was evinced in the proposal, and the matter was thoroughly discussed. It was agreed on all sides that the,exist ing allotment of one-acre foot of wat®r to every four acres of land was not sufficient, but tbe opinion was expressed Chat an allotment of 1 in 1 was rather too much. It was resolved to instruct the secretary (Mr A. T. Crawford) to write to the dis trict parliamentary representatives and ask them to use their best endeavor...

Lantern Lecture on Paris. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

Lantern Lecture on Paris. On Tuesday evening last Rev. Tol hurst, of Nagambie, visited Rushworth and delivered a very interesting and instructive lecture in the Presbyterian church on the beautiful French city of Paris, to which additional interest at taches itself from the fact that in the present war this city is the main ob jective of the German army in France who, if they could but arrive within striking distance of their great siege guns, would soon relieve the city of its grandeur. The lecture was well at tended, and the Rushworth brass band, with their customary willingness to assist in all things local, assembled at the church and discoursed music from outside the building prior to the per formance, and afterwards rendered suitable items from inside, " The Mar seillaise" being particularly enjoyed. Rev. Raff introduced the lecturer of the evening, who had been an eye-witness of the scenes about to be displayed to them. They had to rejoice as British citizens that they were u...

Snakes and Their Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

Snakes and Their Eee> All snakes lay eggs, though the young come into the world in different ways. The English common grass snake deposits her eggs in a dunghill, where they are hatched by heat; those of the viper and all sea' snakes are hatched within the body of the parent, and the young are said to be born alive. The pythons, confined to the old world, incubate their eggs. Indian travellers in the early part of the last century re ported this fact, but it was disbelieved till 1841, when a python in the Jardin des Plantes confirmed the truth of the story by hatching nine out of a clutch of fifteen eggs. Another case occurred in the Zoological Gardens, Regent's Park, in 1862, and a third in Leipsic in 1894. The python arranges ithe eggs, and then coils herself around them.. The temperature of the reptile during in cubation has been found to be some de grees higher than that of the surround ing air.

THE PETROLEUM AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

THE PETROLEUM AGE. When Colonel Drake drilled the first oil well in Pennsylvania in 1858 lie' could have had no conception of the momentous revolution petroleum was to work in the world. For unnumbered centuries that Spirit of Energy had been sealed down beneath the earth's crust, but Drake's bore liberated a beneficent giant infinitely more potent than the fabled genii of Solomon's Jar. In one way and another " burning oil" had been known for hundreds of years, bat its discovery in Pennsylvania brought it from the region of the mys terious into the arena of commerce and industry. To-day the United States of America produce 240,000,000 barrels of petroleum, which is f ully two-thirds of the world's production : and there is no part of the globe where it is not used, either for light, heat, or power. The kerosene lamp is universal : petrol dur ing the last few years has become so : while the universal lubricants arc the mineral oils. When it is remembered that the first commercial de...

A Feat of Endurance. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

A Feat o-F Endurance. A naturalist adds this testimony to the endurance of the stormy petrel :—"I once captured one of these birds shortly after the ship I - was in had left the Irish coast for America," he says. " Others were captured at the same time, but I tied a piece of red flannel round the leg of my bird and let him go. The bit of red made it conspicuous, and it could be easily identified. The bird, with others that could not be so readily recognised, followed the vessel right across the Atlantic. Karely during the daytime was it out of sight, and if for an hour or two it was lost to view while feeding on the refuse cast overboard, it soon reappeared, and the last seen of it was within a few miles of Sandy Hook, when it vanished. When_ the fact is considered that the ship, day and night, went at an average speed of nearly 20 miles an hour, the feat performed by the daring traveller can be appreciated." .

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 23 October 1914

THE WAR. Daring the week tremendous battles have been taking place, both by our Russian ally in Poland aDd also by our French and Belgian allies and our selves in the west. Everywhere have the enemy's efforts been frustrated, and now it appears as if the turning point of the war has been reached. Slowly but surely from now on the allies will force the barbarous invader back, and the ultimate result of the war in our favor is an absolute certainty. Little 'Portugal has thrown in her lot with the allies, and Greece, Roumania and Italy are on the point of doing likewise. The German officers are depressed, and admit that their ^troops are being forced to retreat. At Ostend the Germans entrenched themselves, but did not reckon on the British fleet. Warships quickly found the range and shelled the enemy heavily. They wavered. The Allies on the land advanced and the cannon ading increased. Very soon the whole German line on the sea front retreated. The Belgians, though driven from their na...

An Unsatisfactory Witness. THE POLICE "TURNED DOWN." STRONG COMMENT BY P.M. ■ KNIGHT. At the Murchison Court of Petty Ses sions on Monday morning last a case having some peculiar features was heard by Messrs ft. Knight, P.M., and G. P. Heaziewood and E. J. Gregory, J's.P. A witness for the Crown apparently " twisted" badly when in the box, and so hesitatingly and unsatisfactorily did he give his evidence that Mr Knight felt it incumbent upon himself to pass some scathing comment. The case was as follows :— CoDBtable Duggan v. Charles Johnson, junr.—That defendant did, on the 5th uay of October, 1914, at Aicadia railway station, use obscene language towards Henry Mulholland. Constable Duggan proseouted and Mr Sutherland (of Sutherland & M'Farlane, Shepparton) appeared for defendant. Henry Mulholland deposed that he was a laborer residing at Arcadia.
