THE MINERAL SPRINGS! (To the Editor of the "Kyneton Guardian.") [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 6 January 1914
THE MINERAL SPRINGS (To the Editor of the "Kyaeton Guardian.") Sir.-Being attracted by the adver tisement in the metropolitan papers regarding the attractions of Kyneton. I have come here with ray wife and family for a holiday., I admit that the district has many advantages to offer as a holiday resort, but the principal attraction advertised, viz., the Kyne ton springs, is most. disappointing from two important points of view. First-The pavilion is dirty, tiles be ing covered with dirt, broken glass, and sticky- deposits from cordial bot tles carried there and used by visi tors with the water; the ^combined effect upon a fastidious person being to- make them realise that the first shall also be their last .visit. It seems ?absurd that a public body, having raised the funds to build a fine pavil ion at the spring:, having money to spend to advertise it, have so tar made n&lt;v effective arrangements to keep it clean. Secondly-Access to the springs.; A drag ? goes out in the ...

ELPHINSTONE WOOL CLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 6 January 1914
ELPHINSTONE WOOL CLIP. Xow that the 5913 shearing has been finished for some litle time, and S the wool all sold and good-prices ob tained all round, it will be of-interest to review the figures and note the dif ferences between a good season and a bad one To the unthinking- public, a i season good or bad is only a nine ; days' wonder, but to the grower, the merchant, the manufacturer, the poli tical economist, it means the differ ence between prosperity and depres sion. Last season was a bad one from a sheep raiser's point of view; There was only a small percentage; of lambs and a shrinkage of wool. The output of wool from this district was 92 tons, whereas this season it is 144 tons, or an increase of 52 tons, or of 56.4 per cent. At iod. per lb., the average';, it means that the growers of this dis trict receive £5026/13/4 more for -their wool this season than they did last year. An additional £62 odd was paid in freight. When one thinks of the large figures involved when large w...

Dr. Roth, whose study of the Queensland aborigines will compare | favorably with that of Professors Spencer and Gillen of the Central Australian tribes, has left us a rich heritage of their folk lore, and from him 1 have gathered the following facts: In the very early times the'moon used to live on the ground like other people. The sparrow hawk was then the guardian of the moon, and some times for safety used to bury the moon m the earth. But one day, in order to punish the people for their want of love, he intended to make a great fire about their camps: and tu get the moon out of harm's way placed him high up in the sky. And this is how the moon regularly comes to take up his abode in the heaven.-;, out of harm's way of the bush fires. Roth obtained from the Boulia distric...
