GOOD NEWS FOR POOR SHIRES. THE GOVERNMENT PROPOSAL. MUNICIPAL LOANS EXTENSION BILL. HOW IT WILL AFFECT THE WARRAGUL SHIRE. A SAVING OF £420 A YEAR. THE POSITION PLAINLY STATED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
GOOD NEWS FOR POOR SHIRES. THE GOVERNMENT PROPOSAL. MIUNICIPAL LOANS EXTENSION BILL. HOW IT WILL AFFECT THE WA1,tAGUL SHIRE. A SAVING OF £420 A YEAR. THE POSITION PLAINLY STATED. We very much doubt if the multi tude of ratepayers scattered throughout the electorate after which the WEST GIP'PSI.AND GAZETTF. is named, have Sfully realised the scope of relief which Sthe adoption of the Municipal Loans SExtension Bill will afford to those m unicipalities which, in recent years, I have become financially embarrassed inr consequence of liberal borrowing in the " good old times" when things were Slooming and when our enterprising .munuicipal guardians based their calcu Slations upon a continuance of that r "uon andt blessing to mcn"-the £3 t to £1 subsidy. Of course, a change of a very com Splete ad depressing character has since - come over toe scene. A very inappre I aile tiuoiety of the subsidy is now in existence-shout I Is in the £1-but, f alas, the loan liabilities remain ! Many l mu...

FARM FIELD GARDEN MEADOW AND PASTURE GRASSES. Views Expressed by Professor Henry, of the Wisceonsin Experiment Station. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
MEADOV AND PASTURE GPRASSES. Views Ezjpssed by Professor Henry, of tlo Wiscsi~io IExperimcnt Station. In a lettertr ite'n to loar as Dairy man concerning grasses in Wisconsin Professor Henry makes several state ments that are of general interest. In regard to the clovers he says: The mammoth furnishes a seed which brings a good price and is probably val nablo for turning under. Generally, however, medium red clover should be sown, since it gives better satisfaction for baymaking. The alsike clover de serves more friends than it has. It is especially valuable for sowing on lands slightly damp. Of course it will not do on wat lands. It holds much better when pastured by stock than does red clover, the plants often lasting several years in pastures. The stems of the alsike are lner and better relished by stock, espe cially sheep, than are the coarser stems of the red clover. Alsike seed brings a very good price. - We have tried a num ber of other clovers, but none that will compare wit...
Protecting Young Trees. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
Protecting Ioung Trees.a An Indiana correspondent of Ameri can Gardening writes: "We have trie:1 many plans to keep rabbits and insects from uinjuring young fruit trees, but the best thing yet is tarred paper. Wo buy the paper as it is prepared for roofing and cut it into strips about six inches wide and two feet long. It is easily and quickly wrapped about the trees, and is secured with wire or strings. The of fensive smell of tar drives insects away, and they will not get between the tree and wrappings as when rags and veneer ing are used. We wrapped thirty-five acres of trees in this way, and the paper has now been on two years. This is certainly worth a trial."
Good Wood Ashes. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
Good Wood Ashlcs. American Cultivator says: "If good ashes can be easily procured a mixture of 15 bushels of ashes and 100 pounds of ground hone sown upon an acre now will make an early pasture next spring, and its effects will be seen for many years. It is best adapted to high lands, as it assists in attracting moisture from the air in dry weather. If the ashes cannot be got or are likely to contain much lime 100 pounds of inuriato of potash may be used instead to quite na good advantage. To double the amount given above would do no harm and might double the feeding capacity ot the acre." A large breadth of the corn land h been sown to wheat and rye in Russia
Pump for a Well. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
Pump for a Well. The kind of pump and the power to drive it will depend largely on the quan tity of water to be raised. For a mod erate amount, or only a few hogsheads a day, Country Gentleman says: The best form of chain pump with rubber buckets to be worked by hand will answer a good purpose. After try uing different kinds we find it both chear and efficient. When the well is nearly full of water and the height to he raised is not great a man will pump a barrel in a minute, but when the water is low in the well more force is required. The common pump worked with a lever handle is much less efficient. On tht other hand, a larger quantity may bt raised with a windmill, provided thE locality favors a steady and reliable breeze and you know of a good manu factured one (out of the many in market: which has been used some years withou; getting out of order. Or you may drive a large pump with horses by the use of a tread power, or a steam engine may be employed. The choice from these dif...

Agricultural Colleges and Stations. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
Agricultural Colleges and Stations. At the annual meeting of the Associa tion of American Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations at New Or leans much time was occupied with con sidering the collective exhibit to be made in the Agricultural building at Vhicago by the colleges and stations. Satisfactory progress in the work or preparation was. rerarted., and it is ex pected that this will prove one of the most interesting features of the agricul tural exhibit. It will represent, among other things, the entire work of a pro gressive experiment station. This ex hibit is under the direction of standing committees of which Director Arnsby and H. E. Alrord are chairmen. It was voted by the association that a bust of Senator Morrill should be placed +n the library of every land grant col lege of the country. The seventh and next convention of the association will probably be held at Chicago in October 1898. At the last convention W. A Henry, director of the Wisconsin ex periment stat...
Cut Leaved Trees. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
Cut Larved Tree. In seiccting trees for one's grounds a variety in effect can be gained by the introduction of trees with gracefully cnu: leaves, such as the cut leaved alders and birches, for instance. The cut leaved birch standing out by itself en tho lawn is decidedly effective. It is a very grace ful tree and suited to either small or large lawns. There are also several de sirable varieties among the cut leaved oaks.

On the Country Road. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
On the Country Road. Prune the orchard any time when the leaves are off. It may be plowed at such time'without injury. When the clover is all fed out there in nothing better to follow it. Prepare to raise more of it next year. Expenses for wagon repairs will be less if ideit before absolutely necessary Besides avoiding accidents the rolling stock of the far'n will thus last longer also. Bave you any young and thrifty apple tees that are not of such varieties as you would now select' Then mark them for grafting next April to a profit able sort. Do not obe afraid of dissolved South Carolina rock if bought from a reliable dealer. It acts more quickly than ground raw bone. The phosphoric acid in it is just as valuable as the phosphoric acid in boneblack or in raw bone.-The 9hiladelphia Farm Journal.
BULN BULN SHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
]ULN ULY SHIRE. Once again there is the call to aris in the municipal war. Cr Barr retires for good, so rumor says, and the ques tion of a successor is occupying the local mind. says the Drouin " Independent." Amongst them Messrs D. RIiddell, E. l)owey, and W. Lacey. Three good mena undoubtedly and worthy the honor. but all cannot go in, so the public imust choose and act accordingly. MIr Riddell has a good claim for support. IHe has always taken a keen interest in shire matters, and has ever been ready with advice as to the real wants of the place. His stake is at the north where the roads are badly wanted and if on no other ground the ratepayers of this place will give their votes for him. _Mr Dowey has also a strong claim but some think on account of youth he lacks perhaps that experience which should form part of a councillor's equipment. As to MIr Lacey, he is a tried uan and proved sound. but there is a feeling that hlie is in the wrong place. NAIRACAN SHIRE. 'In the Narracan ...
THE LOCAL MINES. A CLAIM SOLD TO A MELBOURNE SYNDICATE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
THE LOCAL MINES. A CLADI SOLD TO A MEL BOURNE SYNDIICATE. Milner's claim, on what is known as the Ironstone line of reef near Nee rim South, has been sold within the past few days to a Melbourne - syndi cate. The lease extends over 30 acres and the prospecting done has exposed a reef 2ft. wide, and bearing every in dication of being of a permanent char acter. A trial crushing of eight tons at the Bairnsdale School of Mines yielded over an ounce to the ton. The property was recently inspecteld,by Mr R. A. Moon, and after receiving his report the negotiations between the vendors and the Melbourne syndicate, conducted by Mr- G. W. Anderson, were satisfactorily concluded. Two or three other claims are being worked along the line of reef. They are all on gold.
