BRIGHT, BREOHWOETH AND BUFFALO TICKETS. "Hilary'' (North Fitzroy) writes to Melbourne "Herald" as follows':-"I took my family to Mount Buffalo, and while there learnt that a friend was at Beechworth. On the return jour-, ney I desired t» run up to Beech worth from Everton Junction, only a few miles, hut was not permitted. The Department lost the fares, and Beechworth itself something' more than What I shiould have spent there, because every individual who visits a place and likes it is a potential advertiser. There could not be any inconvenience to the Railway Depart ment if twenty passengeis broke their journey in this way. It is an arbit rary rule, that seems to be without reasonable justification." The official reply is that passengers travelling on excursion tickets are not permitted to break journeys; nor are passengers permitted to termin ate a journey at any intermediate station short of the destination shown on the ticket, except on forfeiture of. the chctip excursion ticket...
FEDERAL POLITICAL SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 30 January 1914
FEDERAL POLITICAL SITUATION. As an outcome of the protracted Commonwealth Cabinet meeting held I last week-it occupied two days-the ! prospects of a dissolution of both the' Senate and the House of Reprcsenta-! tives are said to be increasing (Bay3 the " Ago.") Though Ministers de cline to admit anything of the kind, there is reason to believe that the Cabinet decided that Pailiamentshould be callea togethor. in the early autumn i in order to provide legitimate and: constitutional grounds on which tho Prime Minister may ask for a dis solution of both Chambers of tho j Legislature. Tho matter was dis- j cussed by the Liberal members just . beforo tho end of last session and they i were so evenly divided in opinion that the Government was authorised to decide as it thought best. The party meeting was neld just after tho victory of the Labour party in ' New South Wales State election. The i result of those elections made the New South Wales members of the Federal Ministerial party rath...

A. WHEAT PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 3 February 1914
A. WHEAT PEST. I >ft>t a.few of the farmers in Eastern LRivorina are inclined to ascribe the absence of grain from a great (leal of the heads of wheat this season to tho presence of a microscopic fly which was noticed to bo very prevalent in October and part of November. This fly, at. about that time, was extremely active in kitchen gardens. In many cases it attacked beans, peas, lettuce, and other plants with deadly effect. The fly is much smaller than the Rutherglen fly, and may cscape notice-, excepting when the sunlight is on it. At tho time it. was attacking gardens, tho tiny insect was always noticed to bo hovering about the wheats just when it was flowering. For some reason, which has not been clearly defined, farmers found, when harvesting, that many of the heads which seemed to be fully developed and well grown contained no grain, excepting near the stalk. These flics were present in myriads at flower ing time, and some of the farmers have come to the conclusion that ...
