CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 16 November 1901

' C08flESPGNDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—The people of tliis town hare good reason to' complain of the manner in which they are treated as regards Departmental appointment#,-There appears to -be no valid reason why aclerk of courts should be. sent from Katanning to perform die work here, and there is also room for complaint oyer the fact that a single man has been Bant herein charge of the local police station. There has', been considerable - outlay in providing a splendid residence, and why that ip allowed to remain-vacant when, by the appointment of a married man, it would be-carefully looked after,, seems absurd, "She police quarters up till recently were surrounded by a neat and well-kept -garden,, but now its con-, tents are being converted into horse-feed.— Yours, etc., VERITAS.

Cricket. Mr. McLaren's English eleven began the first match of its Australian tour on the Adelaide Oval againBt South Australia's representative eleven.

FARM AND DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 23 November 1901

FARM AND DAIRY. The Government of Queensland is throwing open for grazing a very large area (some 250,000—acres) on the resumed part of Coonambula, Cooranga, and Hawkwood Con solidations in the Gayndah land agent's districts. The areas run from 5,000 to 12,000 acres, and the maximum area allowed to be selected by any one person is 15,000 acres. The rents, vary from Id. tb.2d. per acre per annum, and considering how near the land is to the coast and railways, there should be a large demand for it at those rentals. The term of lease varies from 14 to- 28 years The : above lands will be opened for selection at i the Gayndah land office on and after December 17 next. In portions of Siberia the farmers have a curious system of conserving water for irri gation :—During the winter they collect great drifts of snow in the bottoms of deep, shaded : valleys, rolling it down the sides in immense snow-balls, and there pressing and compacting it so that it will be more resistant to thawing, At t...

ARTHUR RIVER. (FBOM OtTB COBBESPONDKNT ) Not. 18. Shearing and wool-classing is a thing of the past in this district. On the whole the clip was very good, all classes of stock being in very good condition, so that the butchers get a greasy-apron in cutting up, which has not occurred often during the past winter. Harvesting is in full swing in this district, the late-sown crops looking very light; but the early-sown make up for them. The crops of Messrs. Stewart, Lillis, and Spratt look splendid. There are many of our undesirable friends knocking about the fields just- now in the shape of snakes, so farmers should keep their eyea open when gathering their crops. The country begins to show the approach of summer, the high ground being very parched. Now is the time that the farmers should prepare for the coming bush fires, which we are bound to have after the good season we have experienced. In . places the grass is knee-deep. The annual batchelors' ball, took place at the Arthur Hall ...
