THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 15 January 1914

THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. Many years ago a studious Scotsman named David Hutton proved .that stores of the profitable energy were go ing to waste among' those tiny but active folk, tho ordinary domestic mice. In tho summer of 1812 I had occa sion (he wrote) to bo in Perth. "While inspecting tho toys and trinkots that wore manufactured by the French pris oners in tho depot there, my attention was attracted by a little toy lionse with a wheel in tho gable that was running rapidly round, impelled by tho activ ity oF a common mouse.- For one shil ling 1 purchased tho house, the mouso and tho wheel. . But how to appjy half-ounce power, which is the weight of a mouso, to a useful-purpose was tho difficulty. At length the manufacture of sewing thread seemed the most practicable. _ The investigator found that an ordin Lary mouso would-run on the averago ten and a-half miles a day; ho had one mouse that ran tho remarkable distance of eightde.n. miles in that time.

PROPOSED EXTENSION OF THE EASTERN CHANNEL. NORTHERN REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 January 1914

PROPOSED EXTENSION OF THE EASTERN CHANNEL. NORTHERN REQUIREMENTS. I i At the recent meeting of the ' Numurkah Water Trust a letter I was read from the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission, to the effect that it is not pos sible to send water from Shep parton irrigation district' into the Broken creek below Wun ghnu without the construction of several miles of channel. A survey is about to be commenced for the purpose of estimating cost of work, and in due time it would be informed of the. terms on which the commission could comply with the request. —Com. Tuckett moved that the Commission be written to to see if the old channel could be utili sed to send down the overflow, water. He was satisfied that the old channel over the three" chain road could be used at a small cost. The water would be of immense value to the district.— Com. Campbell said it would not cost a great deal to bring the water down the old drain through Tallygaroopna.—Com. McDonnell said they were in the hands o...

siKpparioii ftfcrol1 Published: Monday and Thursday Evenings.' MONDAY, JANUARY 19, 1914. Another proof- is forthcoming in support of (he contention thai farmers are. wholly indifferent • to matters vitally affecting their interests as a body. They are usually keen on points which concern them as individuals, but the perspicacity is wanting to enable them to see that what concerns them as a body must get home to them as individuals. A man may fight as hard as he may, but if he has to contend against overwhelming numbers, or influence, his struggles are in vain, and he must inevitably give way, retiring from the field beaten, discouraged and probably ruined. On the other hand success is assured in any struggle, rightly un dertaken, by co-operation.: ■ Proofs of that s'atement abound, and it is almost inexplicable that farmers, who are usually intelligent men, do not take, the fact more to heart. The butter factory is almost a thread-bare argument, yet its existence is a strik ing illu...
