OUR BENDIGO LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 13 January 1914

OUR BENDIGO LETTER. - (By "Sigma.") The expected lull that goes hand in hand with holiday time is upon us, and social affairs are consequently at a deadlock. The question here these days is, "Have you been to the sale?" which applies to either Myer's or the Beehive. Both places are offering the most wonderful throw-out bargains-so much so that one is tempted to purchase many things for which one has no immediate use. .\t the Beehive on Saturday I saw plenty of dress lengths at 2/11, 3/6, and other amazing prices. These all in durable was!hing prints. and cloth material, both of which are abso lutely necessary for the seaside. Then there is the widest selection of dainty muslins and laces, all going at low prices. One needs an elastic conscience and an elastic purse though, after all, there is some virtue in storing goods against possible use some day when the same can be obtained at such re duced prices. The lady who intends to be up-to-date this winter would do well to shop while t...

MOTOR-CYCLE AND MINIATURE CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 13 January 1914

MOTOR-C OLE AND IIINIATURE CAR. The :fact that at the inotor-cycle and cycle .show, :ield recently at Olympia, only seven " fIrms dkhibited, pedal-cycles alone, while 48 'exhibit0ors showed i motor-cycles only, goes far 0to prove that tlie motor-propelled bicycle is predominiant and all-conquering. No fewer than 124 firms, all told.: exhibited motor-cycles or miniature cars. There were engine. sets at £121121 and upwards, to enable a -pedal. cyclist .to convert his machine to a light weight, smill-powered motor-cycle. Another feature was the Wall "'auto-wheel" to fit to and propel a pedal-bicycle along. There were motor-bicycles cheaper than ever were before exhibited. At the: show a year ago the cheapest motor-bicycle was- £30. To-day we have a: dozen or :more maltes and models to select: from at. from £19/19/ to £26/5/.

GRAIN SEASON. RECORD RAILWAY TRAFFIC. RUSH. AT THE BENDIGO YARDS. Since the holidays the wheat traffic on the railways aas set in' in earnest, and at the present time the rush is in full swing. Bendigo, as the railway centre for the vast ?iheat-producing areas of the north, has to cope with enormous grain traffic at this time of ;he year, in addition to the ordinary heavy assenger and goods traffic, which goes on as usual. From all the northern lines the wheat has been pouring through the Bendigo yards for some days now on its way to the seaboard. A 'highly satisfactory and gratifying fea ture of the g:ain season so far is the ex. cellent arrangements made by the R?ai. way department for coping with the traffic. Through the foresight of the commissioncra in providing additional rolling stock, very little wheat is being stacked at the sta. tions north of Bendigo. In fact, the de. partntnt has I cen able to supply morn trucks than have been required so far. On- all lines the station s...

IRRIG? TION -SETTLEMENTS. OFFICIAL INSPECTION. Melbourne, 1Oth January. Mr. Elwood Mead and Mr. Cattanach to day returned to Melbourne from a visit to the irrigation settlements at Koyuga and Tongala. Referring to their trip to-day, Mr. Mead said the Tougala settlement was younger than Bamnawm, and was in a fair state of cultivation. The prospects were good, but many of the irrigation block. were too large. The commissioners will consider the question of subdividing a number of them. Ioyuga was older than Bamawm, but there were several initial difficulties to be overcome, such as the ra, bit pest,. the infection of the area ivith thistles, and the fact that much of the land .was timbered. Great difficulty was ex eriaenced inl clearing it, but now the dis tiict was looking verywell.
