PUBLIJSHED EVERY TUESDAY AND. FRIDAY:. P TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7Tn. ' The Rabbit Scourge.; . AT the meeting of the Shire Council on t Wednesday last there was a consensus of opinion as to the urgent'necessity of some prompt and unitdd action being d taken for the wiping out of bunny. Amongst the correspondence was a letter from the Land's Department im- j pressing upon the council the, necessity t, for rigidly enforcing the. provisions of c the act for the suppression of the plague, a and the councillors expressed themselves a quite as emphatically as to the same t, necessity. -Fre what.was said it was p apparerit that the councillors: were of a an opinion' that the Crown lands generally were the. great brcediing grounds for the rabbits from which they s issued in thousands [and laid waste theI crops' of the farmers.: From' the tone t of the departmental. correspondence oon b the subject, it might be inferred -that e sorde 'more decisive action might be' taken-by local governing bodies ...
CRICKET. DIMBOOLA V HORSHAM [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 February 1882
CRICKET. -o DIMBOOLA V ieORSHAM This match came off on the Iforsham Cricket Ground on Saturday and enoded in a decisive victory for thle local team; Both chilbs tried to bring their best tealis inti the field, but Dimboola lost the services'of the darkies they intended bringing from the Mission Station; and Horsham had to do without Doyle and Geddes. Both teams were sanguine of success, but it appears Dim boola were overrating themselves,as Phillips was the only one to make a stand against Fahey's bowling. Husband, the Dimboola captain, winning the toss decided.to bhtand Bolton and D'Alton started to the bowling of Fahey and Ruandell, The former was hoeled by the "little demon" for 1, and Phillips appeared at the wicket-and played gocd cricket for 20, being well caught left. handed in the slips by Nuzum off.Fahey.

NURRABIEL. (FROm OUR OWS. conRsEPOxDE.-rr.) January 30. The weather yesterday was very oppressive, in fact it was the mosto;.pressiv: day that I have felt this sulmmer, but this morning dawned with a delightful change. Stripping is about done with the exception of one or two farmers'who have a lofew day's work to finish. Thc'yiel3, this year, has not come up to expectations, b-nt taking it all in all, ithas been pretty .satisfactory,somc have averaged from. 15 to 18 bushels, but more again have less. From enquiries made I find that the average yield has been about eleven bushels per acre; thst is allowing for .the depredations of " bunny," who, I assure you, has been very busy of late. .. Some of the new beginners, near the South Wonwondah station, have been nearly eaten out. One selector, named Bolwell, out of 30 acres only, had ten left.to strip. It matters not which way.you turn, you are completely 'surrounided with rabbits. The sand hills and old' station' bush fences are litera...
