The Advocate. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY MORNINGS. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1914 [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 January 1914

Published Wednesday Mornings. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 14,1914 Another- notch lias been carved in the " Tree of Life" by the passing away of 1913, and we have indeed to be thankful to Providence for the many blessings vouchsafed upon this district during the period of the ex piring year. Therefore, let us welcome 1914 in the hope that we may ex perience equal—if not greater —pros perity, not only in this State but throughout the Commonwealth. Taking a retrospective glance at the past year, in at least so far as this shire is concerned, we congratulate our readers upon having shared their lot of the blessings Dame Nature is wont to bestow upon the human race. Our commercial status has in no way decreased, while the dairying industry is on the increase, i.e., if we may be guided by the last report furnished to the Council of the increase in our dairy herds. The country in and around Moe is becoming more open, which is indicative of increased settle ment and prospective prosperity. Our chief...

CHAPTER XX. On the 'back verandah Mabel Glark was peetl'ing apples. She had found a shady corner behind a shrubby pep per, for the sun was really hot this morning, and down went the apples into the tin dish to the tune of the next Sunday's anthem. "Hello, Mab!" And Ella Lee put heT head over the fence. , "Hello! I was Just -wanting you," and Mabel shook the apples from her lap and came over to the fence. "Is it true Alf Hamilton says he was there with Leslie when it happened?" "That's just what I was going to ask you," returned Ella. "Frank "Wilson told us Alf had seen Mr. Hope and explained it all last night. They all believe him, too, but I don't blame anyone for believing .it was Lennox," added she, doggedly.

RABBIT BESTRUGTION. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 21 January 1914

RABBIT BESTRUGTION. ^ The following' advice is given by Mr. Frank Allan, Chief Inspector: — The following- poisons are used throughout Victoria by the Crown at the present time:—Phosphomed pollard; strychnined apples, carrots, quinces, and pears. These have been found ample for requirements. Other poisons used by land-holders are pliosphorized wheat and oats, jam and strychnine. Some land-holders still prefer to "use grain, but I wish to impress the fact that no grain is now used by this Department, which is relying on phosplibrized -■ pollard, strych nined fruit ;i/iid carrots. These 'net1 hods have been proved infinitely ^ better than grain poisoning-. Apples and Strychnine.—Cut up the apples into baits about half-an inch to live-eig-hts square. Dust with loz. strychnine, powdered, to 10 or 121bs. of apples, say, with a large-sized pepper-castor. Add sugar in the proportion of about lib. to 15 or 201bs. of apples, dusted on the bait, has been found a great addi tional attraction. ...
