GLENMAGGIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 4 May 1882

GLENMAGGIE (From a Correspondent)     Changeable weather indicating to rain continues. We have a few showers within the last month, which has already made the pastures look green, but unless there is a heavy downpour this month grass will be scarce here, as cold weather may be soon expected. Ploughing has already commenced for sowing artificial grasses, and farmers are all waiting for rain to commence ploughing for grain crops, of which a large area will be sown here this year. The railway to Heyfield will be completed in January next. Farmers here as well as in other parts of Gippsland will then have the choice of Metropolitan or local markets to dispose of   their produce. As far as the residents here are concerned with respect to the bridge, I am informed they are in favour of the most direct line to Cowwar ; at or near to Mr. Riley's property seems the most central, certainly not lower down the river ; if so, we might as well go to Heyfield...
