AGRICULTURAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
AGRICULTURAL COUNCIL. A meeting of the above was held at ,Perrin's Hall on Tuesday after nobn' when there were present Mr T. Tehen, Haywood, Chittick, Boddy, Walsh, Ritchie, W.. John son, Gilbert C. A. M'Kenzie, Moody, and D. Stewart. - The secretary read a letter re garding the proposal to place an import duty on superphosphates. Mr Ritchie said he was averse to the proposal, and that it would be to their interest to oppose the duty,. which was to be imposed in the interest of the manufacturer, and would have the effect of keep ing out the Japanese article. Mr M'Kenzie said the farmer had to bear all the burdens. Every one who wanted protection did not take into consideration -that the farmer had to compete with his produce in the open markets of the world, and he could not get any protection. The farmer had just as much right to get a bonus on everything he exported. Mr Gilbert said the farmer was to blame. He.had not the sense or brains enough to complain, and hence he had to sub...

Period of Parliament. MEMBERS DISCUSS. SALARY INCREASE FAVORED [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
Period of Parliament. MEMBERS DISCUSS. SALARY INCREASEFAVORED Should the Legislative Assembly be elected for alonger period than 3 years? This question is being quietly discussed by members of the Assembly in an informal way. Some are of the opinion that three years is too short a term, and that it should be extended to four years. Average duration. of the Legis lative Assembly is under three years. There were general elec tions in 1901, 1909. and 1911, and there will be another appeal to the country not later than October of this year. While reluctant to express their views publicly, most members favor an increase of salary from .£300 to £400. They' say that the mem-. hers of the New South Wales Leg islative Assembly are paid £500 a year each and that after the Bill authorising an increase of £200 a year was passed, the country raised no objection.
Country Development. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
Country Development, PRiACTICALLY the whole prosperity of Victoria depends on the develop. ment of the country districts. For many years past rural progress has been retarded through the power ful influence of the "'Age" news paper. That journal, which derives nine-tenths of its income from Mel bourne, has always held a brief for the metropolis. Members of Par liament, and even Governments in the past have forgotten that the "Age" is simply a commercial con cern run for the benefit of its pro prietors, and they have evaded their duty to the people and taken their policies from the Melbourne publi cation. The interests of a boot fac tory in Collingwood or Fitzroy have been placed before the interests of primary producers, because the bulk of the "Age" buyers reside in such suburbs. How members of Parlia ment, returned to represent the people, and supposed to have a spe cial knowledge of. their work, can justify themselves in so often vot ing at the dictation of the "Age" is more than...
Death of Mr Richard Ennis [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
Death of Mr Rilohard Ennis The passing away of the late Mr iJichard Ennis, a: monagenarian, it i wu be regretted, has to be an nounced. His death, which took place on Friday morning last at his late residence, was as if the tired spirit were anxious to reach its frue bourne, and it called gently to its companion, mortality, which had journeyed through 92 summers to seek another day spring, when through the mists the waking eyes would see the rising glory of im mortality, and thus full of. days he slept. Dr Strangman, who attended Mr Ennis in his last illness, felt that his esteemed patient had .a particu larly good constitution, but that the poor heart, which nigh a hundred years had beaten, resolved to beat no more. Mr Ennig, who resided at Tallarook with his family for a considerable period, was a -colonist approaching 70 years. He was born in County Ennis, Ireland. He was of a cheertul disposition, and as he was not unacquainted with the Muses, he was no mean versifier, and many ...
SEYMOUR CEMETERY [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
SEYMOUR CEMETERYL Sir,--Taking a walk through ihe Seymour Cemetery I was surprised to find it in such a disorderly and neglected condition. The fence wants a coat of paint,, and also doing up; the paths also present an untidy appearance. In fact the whole thing looks neglected, and is no credit to the energy of the'place. 'God's acre should be the pattern of tidyness and neatness. The least we can do for the dead is to keep their last resting-place in order, and to make the ground a pleasant place to visit. The paths should be ornamented with flowers, and all the old grass cut down. I am well aware that to do this would cost money, but when it was once done to keep it nice and tidy would be only a trifle. Keats says " A thing of beauty is a joy for ever." And what could be nicer. than to make our cemetery a" Thing of beauty." Apologising for trespassing on your space, and thanking you in antici pation, I am, etc., FORGET-ME-NOT.
Correspondence. SEYMOUR WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
UCrrespondence. SEYMOUR WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. Sir,-The weight of. summer, plus dry taps for nine or ten hours per night,.coupled with the expres sions of public indignation through the press, have succeeded in arous ing the Water Trust Commissioners from their torpor; and it is gene rally understood that -they..have even made an inspection of the reservoir, and indulged ini a little discussion and agreed' that some thing should be done ! We have become so used to this process that ratepayers will hardly rest assured until they see something being done id actual reality. .As far as they have now gone they have gone on former occasions. But at this point the factions begin to use their influence, and amateur engineers to urge their opinion, and then comes more delay. More time is gained; the crisis passes; nothing is done ; - commissioners and town fall asleep until another midsum mer." You are a new-comer, or your sympathetic references in your leader of last Friday would be l...

THE INTER-STATE COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
THE INTER-STATE COM MISSION. Mr C. A. M'Kenzie remarked by way of, paranthesis at the local 'Agricultural Council on Tuesday that some people .seemed to be under the impression that the Inter state Commission was brought into evistence to impose duties, but now that it was carrying out the work for which it was commissioned, these- people were much perplexed and sorely disappointed. So early in theday the 'Age' is finding fault with the way the inquiry is being conducted by the Interstate Com mission, which proves the truth of Mrit M'Kenie's remark. As the duties continue to rise, so does the cost of living increase by-enabling the- privileged classes to charge the public higer and higher prices. Any ode caq pee tbht g fair sud hgQpot inquiry into the condition of indus ties should be made befpre they are granted more protection, because all protected industries have an advantage. The man who wants more protection has a big thing at stake-if he can secure a monopoly of the local ima...

THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG. Fpr t"he information of those who acr in the habit of sending a dog for their cows, I wish to report a little experi ence which I have had along this line. I tested the milk from a -cow after.§he was brought up by a stable dog, the dog 'in turn being in charge of 'a small boy. She was considerably excited' and quite warm. Her milk tested 2.3. The next morning her test was 4.1, and a week later, when she -V.is brought in by a man and perfectly ooel, lher.milk tested 6.2. Now you "an figure out whether or not it .pays to use a dog around the dairy herd. I should state-that the pasture waid'feed weore exactly'the' same in each' in stance."

HOME-CURED BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
HOME-CURED BACON. Someo time ago we referred to a baclm curing demonstration held at Blathurst, under the auspices of the iocal A., L., and P. Assooiation, the demonstrator being Mr. D. Hlogarth, of that city. The process adopted is one that has been in vogue among certain families in tile North of Englanid for centuries, and may be considered one of those old family secrets, known only to a limited number, aind highly profitable to the owners. At the deoidilstration, 11 pigs el varying weight, breed, and feeding were treated. Some of: them weighed under 200 I,., while a couple turned the scale at 340 and 350 lb respectively. All of the bacon has since been out into, and in every case satisfaction has been expressed as to the quality of the product. One of the owners has sold all that he codlld spare of the baoon at 1/ per lb,- nd would make a great la vor of selling the hams at 1/6l per lb. The other owners have, so far, refused to sell at any price. Since the artici- appeared Mr. ...
MURDER TRIALS. STRIKING SIMILARITY IN CASES [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
'MURDER TRIALS. S'TRIK1NG SIMILARITY IN CASES In a fltter to the London "Daily ciiro'nicle," Mr. Herbert N. e'lowker, ., d ucclecote, Gloucestershire, draws attention to the singular likeness be tween the case of Amy Evelyn Rowe, indicted before Mr. Justice Coleridge oh her own confession at Gloucester Assizes recently for the murder of her mother in December, .1908, and acquit ted; and that of Constance Kent, con demned nearly" fifty years ago for the Road Murder. Mr. ITi'ewker writes: "'The dramatic tiial of .Amy iowe for the alleged murder of her mother contained many points of interest, both in law and fact. "The case for the prosecution show-. ed there was no evidence whatever against the .prisoner except. her own. confession to the matron of the house. at Cardiff, five years after her mother's death. "During the trial Mr. F. W. Sher wood, in his able defence on behalf of his client, raised an' interesting legal' point, and quoted the case of Con-' stance Kent, tried at Salisbu...
