IN THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 January 1914

IN THE DISTRICT. Mooroopna had its share of the storm, and a large amount of damage was also done in various parts. A large portion of the iron roof was torn away, while a part of the balcony at the Royal Hotel was blown down. A large tree in front of the Commercial Bank was hurled to the ground, and a youog man, who had with horoes and waggon, been sheltered under its protecting branches had a narrow escape from serious injury. if not probable death. He had just left its vicinity, and hardly got asvgy from its length when it collapsed.

AT FURPffY'S AND ELSEWHERE At Forphy's foundry it seemed as if two forces of tbs wind corning from opposite directions met in cocnlict, with a determination to do battle for supre many. They came together under a long machinery shed on the southeast side r f the main building, and in their ruthless fight brought the structure bodily to the ground. The shed was over 120 ft long, and underneath its protecting roof was much of differcent ptrto of macbinory used in manuofacluring by the firm. It was fortunate that none of tho em ployes were near at tho timo of the collapse. Continuing along the Bcnalta-road treem worn splintered as if like match wood, and branches were strewn all along tho road almost as far as Coe grove Scull'.

THE LIFE OF A REAL COUNTRY GIRL. HER PLEASURES AND TRIALS. "FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 January 1914

THE LIFE OF A REAL COUNTRY GIRL. HER PLEASURES AND TRIALS. "FOR BETTER OB FOR WORSE." BY "ADELE." Few of our city cousine know of the life of a real " country girl" -that far out country that lies away from railway lines, and out side the radius of decent roads. I visited one such farm, 27 miles from a town add railway station, in a district that has not one re deeming feature. A long dusty road winds between-dried up grass paddocks, with tattered gum trees whose gaunt arms stretch out in helpless protest to the burnin sky. The house must have been built at ndd times-anyhow and by any. body-without the slightest regard to archifecture.- It appears to have been finished on the same prin ciple. There is not an attempt at anything like uniformity. In sum mer the average temperature of the rooms must be over lOldeg. In the front room the chimney orna ments are glorious; there is a High land lassie in true cottage china, and a troubadour in ditto; while a great china mogul, with perforat...

NEW SOUTH WALES WHEAT CROPS. RIVERINA RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 January 1914

NEW SOUTH WALES WHEAT CROPS. fIVERINA RESOLTS. A Wagga correspondent ("Sun shine ") writes :-" I think it about time the public should be informed that the wheat crope, except for a few-very few indeed-cases, have been almost a failure. A little while ago the police obtained estimates from the farmers, but right throughout the whea-tgrow ing districts the farmers now say their estimates were three or four times too great. One hears the same story in every town from Cootamundra to Albury, in the south-west-in fact, right through. out the wheat belt. The increased area goes for nothing. The late crops are Ecarcely returning the seed, and the best of the early crops are only returning four to five bags. Almost every farmer has over-sold, and has twice too many cornsacks, although they had secured only half their re quirements. The position is bad for the country, but it has to be faced, and the sooner the facts are known the better. Ninety per cent of the farmers have now finished stri...

At St Brendan's 110 Church sections of the roofing and ridging were lifted from the fixings and cartled away, the ventilators also suffered. The Convent School was sli htly damig d.

TREES AND THE TRANSCONTINENTAL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 January 1914

1 TREES AND THE TRANS CONTINENTAL, In the Senate recently Mr. Gardiner (N.S.W)_asked whether anything had been done, or was being done, to plant Australian= hardwood trees along the route of the transcontinental railway, and urged the desirability of early action. The Minister for Home Affairs-has now received a report from the Federal engineer-in chief that the country through which the line will pass is not suitable for timber growing. For the first 100 miles out from Kal goorlie, the only timber met with are salmon gum and gimlet wood, after that mallee, black oak, myall, myoporum, and mulga. The climate is said to be far too dry for the growing of timber trees.

REGISTERING APPLICATION [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 January 1914

REGISTERING APPLICATION Mr Lawson, who entered upon his duties as Minister for Lands on Tuesday, is anxious to discard red-tape methods, and to make the way of the land-seeker as easy as possible. He is aware that under present conditions many applicants for land have grown disheartened through repeated disappointments. When several blocks have been thrown open for selection one land-seeker has often applied for every block, making a separate application an-I paying a separate fee of 53 for each area. This practice has been resorted to in order to increase the probabiliths of success. Inquiries have been instituted by Mr Lawson as to whether it will not be possible to charge only one fee for several applications, and whether, by establishing a system of registration of approved applicants, the necessity for more thani one investigation of an ap plicant's claims will be obviated: A conferance of departmental officers, consisting of secretary for Lands (Mr Macgibbon), the sur veyor-ge...

THE BUSH FIRE PERIL. HOW TO MINIMISE IT. PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 January 1914

THE BUSH FIRE PERIL. HOW TO MINIMISE IT. PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS. In view of the recent disastrous fire at Chelsea it is interesting to recall how little notice has been taken of oft repeated warnings given from past experience. Five years ago a Parliamentary com mittee took evidence throughout the State with a view to devising legislation to minimise the losses from bush fires, but the committee finally was dissolved without making any recommendations, the disaster which led to the creation of the committee having been forgotten by the time all the witnesses had been examined Two years ago Mr T S Marshall, chief officer of the Country Fire Brigades' Board, read a paper at a conference of chief officers and fire boards of Australia, in which he emphasised the need of legisla lion and of organised preventive (ffort, but whatever may have been done in the latter direction I there are still wanting the re pressive measures which only an act of Parliament can provide.
