Hurstbridge The Curse Of The Cow [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 2 February 1940
Hurstbridge The Curse Of The'Cow It appears that tired farmers and overworked business men have not been getting much sleep in Hurst bridge lately. There is a certain cow suffering from an acute attack of wanderlust, who as soon as darkness comes and she is relieved of her daily task of supplying milk. goes on a nightly trip of exploration. Indefat igably she walks, walks. walks, - up and down the road all night, testing gates and fences, playing havoc with front gardens and sampling the con tents of vegetable gardens. Her ghostly figure in the moonlight gustily sighing on an ax-eage of five times per minute ("WhLat a sigh is there! The heart i; sorely charged") throws fifty dogs into a frenzy of harking. Tired men, their rest dis turbed by the row and by a sharp dig in the ribs from their anx!ous better halves, rise and go, pIyjama chltl, into the chill night to jinvestigate. One resident, disturibed alumber evi dently having the same effet upon himn as opium smoking had Ilpohi Col...

(To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 2 February 1940
(To the Editor) Sir,-Evidently Captain Pierson is desirous of drawing me into a contro versy which I have no wish to con tinue.- All I am anxious *to do is to -state my reasons for my comments concerning the Hurstbridge and- Pan ton Hill water schemes, nor does the question .of the amount of business fromn Panton Hill' enter into my con siderations. However, an irrigation scheme as proposed at ,Panton Hill disguised as a domestic water supply for the dis trict certainly does not interest me. There are several salienrit easons why such a scheme as suggested by Captain Pierson would not tend to general prosperity at present, i.e. (1) contour of the country; (2) quality of majority of. the land (excluding Kangaroo Grouid 'which is prospering without irrigation); .(3) exceptional porosity with poor depth of top' soil (excepting in patches washed from hillsides into panns); (4)' capital outlay for obvious return; (5) interest char ges of scheme to be born by already over-loaded ratepayer...
