DISTRICT. NEWS. OARLEGII. E[nou 0173 OWH 5OOBEoPO5DENT.J The rain, though so much wantedl, came rather inopportunely on New Year's Day. From ear]y morning on that day there was a constant stream of vehicles passing through our village to Fern Tree Gully, which seems to be a favorite resort for picnickers. There were also a large number of visitors .at Oakleigh, the old police pad. dock being a nice picnic resort for those who do not care to go too far away. The loml State school isbeing thoroughly renovated. Whilst this is being done it will be a pity if the pump--of which I have previously complained-is not seen to. It will be a great shame, if after all this mrin the families in the vicinity of the school are to be annoyed by so many children coming for water. On Wednesday, the proprietors of the saw mills, Messrs. Beach and Nelson, got up steam to try their new machinery, which worked well. Last Sunday the usual prizes were dio tributed in Holy Trinity Sunday school. Next Tuesday...
