Irrigation at Rochester, ITS IMPORTANCE IN IRRIGATED AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 January 1914
Irrigation at Rochester, ITS IMPORTANCE IN IRRIGATED AGRICULTURE. The experience of various settlers iu our northern irrigation areas emphasises die value of dairying as a pioneer indus try. Those who have prepared for the adequate feeding of their cows, and have treated them on right lines, have almost without exception prospered. By means of. irrigation the northern agriculturist can he assured of great quantities of rich inilk-making food throughout the whole of the year. In such circumstances dairying becomes an assured source of revenue almost from the day that the farm is taken in possession. Many new men who are doing well on their northern irrigation farms owe their success lareoly to the fact that they specialised in dairy ing. Every week they had a few cans of cream to deriver to the local butter fac tury, the proceeds from which enabled them to more than pay th&lt; ir way. So significant have been tha successes of the irrigators who specialised in cream pro ductio...

WHOOPING COUGH AND BRONCHITIS. LITTLE GIRL SUFFERED FOR SEVEN MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 January 1914
WHOOPING COUGH AND BRONCHITIS. LITTLE G1EL SUFFERED FOR SEVEN MONTHS. "My little girl, aged two years, had Whooping Cough and Bronchitis for seven months," writes Mrs F. Lawson, 3 Water street, Camperdown, N.S.W. "Sometimes -he was so bad she would fall down with weakness. Many a time 1 have picked her up thinking she was dead. She would hold her breath, and I would have to smack he on the back so as to help her to breathe again. I gave her a number of cough reme dies, and 1 was always taking ber to the doctors, and they gave her many cough remedies, but nothing had any effeot what ever. One day a lady recommended me to try Dr Sheldon's New Discovery and said it was very good for Whooping Cough, so I got a bottle and gave ber three and sometimes five doses a day, and it seemed to relieve her almost at once, and in a week's time you would not know her; she did not look the EBme child. She is much fatter, and has never coughed since taking Dr Sheldon's New Discovery." Dr Sheldon's New...

The Weir Sports. A SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. GLORIOUS WEATHER. GATE TAKINGS — £106. The - 19bh annual gathering of the Goulburn Weir Sports Club took place yesterday (New Year's Day) and proved co be a most successful meeting. Tli > weather, although warm, was hot- hot enough to be unpleasant, consequently the attendance on the part of the public was most satisfactory. Visitors were present in numbers from all the district centres aud from the metropolis, the sum taken at the gates amounting to £87. In addition to this close on 400 pitrons of the sports travelled per special train, and as each of these pay Is to the Railway Dept. in respect of the admission fee to the groundj, it is estimated that about £19 additional will ho derived from this source.

Girgarre East. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 January 1914
Girgarre East. (from an occasional correspondent). During one of the squalls in the early morning of a day last week the fishing smack " Saucy Jane "■ was totally wrecked on Lake Waranga. The occupants— Messrs A. Oollie and G. Gardom—had a very tryiDg experience and a narrow es cape from being drowned. They were out fishing when the squall came, and their utmost endeavors were unable to keep the boat from a lee shore. Mr Collie was doing his utmost at the oars, but the vessel gradually got nearer and nearer to the rocks when the rower managed to catch a crab with the result that the boat was smashed against the rocks. Then rose from sea to sky the wild farewell, with sundry variations. Happily, however, it was not a case of farewell as both occupants reached the land safe, but terribly drenched and a good deal rattled. The boat was smashed into a thousand pieces, as was also the tucker box, and the half dozen of fish caught—averaging something over 51b. each—were also lost. The " Sa...

COROP SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 January 1914
COROP SPORTS. The annual sports gathering -of the Corop sports c'ub was held on the shore of Tjake Cooper on New Year's Day and in point of attendance eclipsed all previous gatherings. The marvel was where the people came from, but then' Corop is in centre country with three or four large towns within reasonable distance, and the intervening country is all good and well settled. The attendance was any thing about 2000 people, and, although the day was decidedly warm, they spent an- enjoyable time picnicing and at the same time witnessing the dif ferent sporting events. The Rushworth Brass Band provided the music, and their playing was greatly appreciated. The various events were well contested, and to the energetic secretary (Mr W. Rose) is due the credit for a great deal of the success attained. The following are the results of the chief events ; — - Open Trot— W. Wright's Jack, 250yds bhd ... -1 W.

WANALTA PICNIC, The time-honored picnic was held at Wanalta Creek on Xmas Day. Owing to the windy, dus-y and disagreeable weather the attendance was nob up to the usual standard, but as the climatic conditions improved in the afternoon buggies and jinkers rolled up in goodly numbers, and Mr J. Davies' motor car with a full load helped to swell the attendance. All present heartily entered into the amuse ments usual 'in this occasion, and seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. The providing of the tea was in the capable hands of the ladies of Sandhills and Wanalta Creek, and that is a sufficient guarantee of suitability, variety and plenty. Tbe circuit fund of the Metho dist church will benefit substantially from the eff irb and the best thanks of minister and stewards are accorded to all who helped to c mtribute to the success and en joyment of the occasion.
The Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 January 1914
The Holidays. Christmas passed off quietly enough bb far as this district was concerned, and one pleasing feature in connection there with was the fact that there were no dis tressing accidents to record. The list throughout the State as a whole has, however, been heavy, although this is expected at this time of the year when so many people go picnicking and indulge in shooting and ba-bing. The fifty points of rain which fell at the early part of last week nicely laid the dust and made the climatic surroundings much more bearable than would otherwise have been the case. The different fishing resorts were well patronised, although the sport obtained might have been a great deal better. It was remarkable what a number of people from afar visired the district on this oc casion, and it is apparent that the popu larity of the place as a picnicing resort is growing. At both the Waranga Inlet and the Goulburn Weir parties were present from Melbourne, making a good lengthy stay and securing...
