UNLOVELY NUMURKAH. (By "AESTHETE.") [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 27 February 1914

UNLOVELY NUftiURKAH, (Bv " Aesthete.") Whatever is besatifn! is asefal also. Utilitarianism, as snch, does not under value that which is lovely. In seeking to make Nnmnrkah tl more lovely thao it is at present, it will also, pari passu, be made "a more desirable place too live id," aDd yonr correspondent, who signs himself " Let Us Move," will have his heart's desire. The " laying down of a practical scheme for the beantification of Nnmnrkah" is not a simple matter, because any scheme will meet with strenuous objections ; because any heme wul iavolve c inside-vole expea ditnre of money ; and. if we may judge n the evidence which past experience amply supplies, proof will be demanded that such expenditure will yield a gen erous rate of interest ; and such proof is not easy to give. If Nnmnrkah town hip were a borough, the task would be comparatively simple. But we can magine that farmer 11 B," whose holding is farthest distant from the township in the ri ing, of which the township fo...

THE BISHOP'S LENTEN PASTORAL LETTER. Wangaratta, Ash Wednesday, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 27 February 1914

THE BISHOP'S LENTEN PASTORAL LETTER. Wangaratta, Aah Wednesday, 1914. To the Members of the Churoh of England in the Diocese of Wangaratta My Dear Brethren— We are about to entor onco more upon another Lent with all its possibilities und responsibilities. This Mission Season of our Church calls us to Scb'-examinaiion, with a view to obtaining a just estimate of ourselves in God'a sight; to Self-denial, with a view to overcoming any besetting sin (e.g., bad temper, laziness, intemper ance of any kind, impurity, meanness, sharp practices, withholding just dues, etc); and Self-developmenl, that is, a more earnest endeavor to do our duty manfully in scorn of consequences. It is of the first importance that we do not lose sight of the end while using the means to it. We want a clear vision of God and of Hub will concerning us. We want more definite aspirations to spur ub on to better service. If we lose sight of these mere self-denial will do us little or no good. This, then, is the ques...

First of ail, What do we want ? A bet ter water storage is ondonbtedly oar first pressing need. That means not only a larger area bnt a cleaner. Ir means the destruction of the Sithy me-s of weeds and a clean approach to the reservoir.

CORRESPONDENCE. A WATER SUPPLY FROM THE MURRA.Y, (To the Editor.) SlB,—The condition of the wa'er snuply nataraliy causes one to cast ronnd to discover if there is not some otner means of safeguarding oar water sapply than those at present adopted. Home time ago the Progress Associa tion took np the question of obtaining s supply fn-m the Murray, bat the lavish promises of Mr El wood Mead and Mr George Graham caused a halt. We were told by those gentlemen that it w mid be a matter of a short time only before the tail end of the Eastern Gonlbnrn channel wa3 continued to the creek, after which there would be any quantity of water available. But t ese promises were made only to be broken, and there is nothing left now but to turn in 3ome other direction. I believe the time is opportune for advocating a district irrigation scheme from the Mur ray, and feel certain that the ouprity of farmers would willingly become mem bers of an association formed for the purpose. There are some, no dou...
