LERDERDERG RESERVOIRS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 3 April 1915
LERDERDERG RESERVOIRS. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-In a season of such excep tional di'yness as the present the question of water conservation at tracts greater attention. As irriga tion becomes more firmly established at Bacchus Marsh, a regular water supply is needed, and the Lerder derg river has all the advantages of rainfall and catchment, if ade quate storage reservoirs are-built. It seems surprising to me that more consideration has not been given to a site for a reservoir at Kangaroo Flat, about two miles below Golden Point. The Lerderderg River, I be lieve, has less fall in that two miles than any other similar stretch be tween Mt. Wilson and Bacchus Marsh. The site I am mentioning is immediately below Kangaroo Flat. At that place. the river has a bend somewhat in the form of the letter Z. At the lower end the .bare rock is showing nearly quite across the river bed-about 50 feet-with an almost perpendicular rock face on the south side, and a hill of a very steep angl...

Madame Maggie Stirling and other Melbourne artists supplied the items, which were all vociferously received, and encores demanded.

Ennis) was auc tioned by Madame Stirling. After this some flags and colors, and two bunches of heather, from Madame's own garden-the last named realiz ing £1/I/ a bunch.

BLACK WOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A local co-operative party has been formed to work the Easter Monday lease. For the present op erations will be confined to the tun nel level. It is to be hoped that their enterprise will be 'rewarded. Brunswick City cricketers will visit Blackwood for the Easter holi days.

Blue Mountain cricketers visited here on Saturday, and after an in teresting game, the result was a draw.

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 48. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 3 April 1915
BACCHUS MARSH. By W. WILLIAMS, B.A. No. 48. tUndoubtedly some persons are ad ~: apted for public life, and some are not. Some again may have the ad aptability, but not the inclination. You may frequently hear the frank _-comment that the man who would Slead in public movements is a fool, for he gets no thanks for his trouble. Rather that he does so occupy a prominent position in the community Sbrings him under criticism. Because he did not do this or the other,' he offends this one and that; and hence the proverb, "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." But I pre sume that in the main those? who feel a responsibility for the public welfare act from a pure motive, have no idea of personal aggrandisement. As I scan the back files of the "Ex press," and read the doings of our mighty little hamlet of the sixties and seventies, two characters stand out who verily were pillars of the community-James Elijah Crook and James Young, and we enter into their labors. Both men evidently had ad...

THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
THE CONCERT. A late start (15 to 20 minutes); long intervals between the items; unnecessary lowering and raising of the proscenium; are not items con ducive to' strengthening a weak pro gramme. Bacchus Marsh audiences have in a manner become spoiled, perhaps, by always expecting some thing better than the last, but when the programme does not come up to the standard, they are a little dis appointed. We think this occurred on Monday evening. The best items were the tenor songs of Mr. Gerald Fitzmaurice, who was heartily en cored for all his items. Stewart and LIorraine supplied some novel and acceptable musical items on banjos and 20th century violins; also a little "Musical dinner" sketch, in which the crockery, &e., on the table was brought into requisition to pro duce melody. Miss Mabel Matting ley sang "'Rose in the bud," "The Moorish maid," "My ain guid man," and others as encore pieces. Miss May Griffiths acted as accompaniste, both on the piano and the Irish harp for s...
A.N.A. SPORTS, BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
-A:N;A.· SPORTS, BACOHUS MARSH. - The above were held o'n Easter SMonday, aid attracted a good at .tendance, £42 being taken at the igates, which was considered very satisfactory, under the prevailing :conditions. The same may be said of the whole day's proceedings. It :could hardly be expected that it '?would prove a record year. .* The procession, led by the Presi :dent of the Branch (Mr: J. Red: drop), as Lord Kitclhener, attracted Aa number of other fancy costumes, both mounted and on foot, and gave _color to the scene; but the bulky •original items which usually ap pear were missing, with the excep :tion of one "starved out" exhibit, which portrayed in striking fashion the effects of the drought, being a f'amily in an old covered waggon, with ~ll the farm belongings and .numerous signs hanging about, and one struck a popular note with "Are f'e downhearted? No!" The sports committee would do well to devote ii little more attention to working up beforehand exhibits for the pro ce...
WOMAN'S WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
. WOMkN'S WOER?D. How many homes there arein which mord care is lavished upon expensive adornments than upon the free, every day comforts and blessings of nature! There are many women who, afth the best intention for the care of their houses and their children, still commit, one heinous, hygienic sin by what may not be inaptly called "furniture wor ship," and so careful are they of car pete, sofa coverings, and curtains, that some rooms in their houses are main .·tained in a cellar-like darkess. except for short' intervals, when they are thrown open for-"company." If one thing, is more certain than another, it is the fact that all sorts of microscopio growths love the darkness. One has only to search a dark spot in the forest to find myriads of them, 'and dark, sunless closets and corners come a close second with moulds, and, if we ex amine carefully, a dust filled with spores. "Children, look in.those eyes; lis ten to that dear voice; notice the feel. ing of even a single touch tha...
TIMELY TIPS ON TOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
TIMELY TIPS ON TOOLS. SEndeavor to keep all the farm tools- sharp, and not .wait until you want to use them, and then lose much valuable time putting them in working order. A good grindatone, set of good files, and a tool grinder are good investinents. The most useful and money-saving buildings on the farni are the tool house and the implement shed where all the farti tools and machinery can be protected and taken care of. Too .inany farmers neglect to pro itect their tools anid implements from 'the weather when not in use,'either for lack of roomy bulldings or from sheer neglect. The logies would pay for good buildings in a very few years. •- . . Butter is like a sponge--It is not safe to claim that butter must be the same vhen it reaches the market as w1bwjo it~arp Z ha~cm
TREATMENT OF GALVANISED IRON. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
TREATMENT OF GALVANISED IRON. Galvanised iron is bMing used more and more freely for the siding and roofing of buildings. It is relatively cheap, is free from fire risk, and can be erected rapidly on either wooden or iron frame. There has been some complaint that it is riot durable, that it rusts and decays quite rapidly. rThis is because the galvanized iron is not properly treated. The superintendent of con struction of the United States steel corporation, a man who perhaps has had more practical experience with this typ~e of building material than any other person, says:-f'Let the galvanized iron siding or roofing remain untreated for, about two years after it is put on. This gives the atmosphere and 'sun ample time to oxide the surface on both sides of the iron. Then coat the exterior surface with a suitable paint having an asphaltum base. By'this treat ment rust and decay are arrested. The material becomes practically in destructible for ordinary use.'

MAKING CHEESE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
MAKING CHEESE AT HOME. Did you ever try making a little cheese? The process is not at all difficult, but like making anything else a little practice is necessary to turn out a high-grade product.- But you never made butter, or a pie or a cake that equalled, the best until after a few attempts, perhaps a few failures. Here is a simple method that can be followed, in producing your own home suliply. Take milk three or four hours old that has been kept at about 70 degrees and which has not commenced to sour. The first step is to heat to 96 degrees, add commercial rennet, three-tenths of an ounce, or 8.5 cubic centimeters, td 100 pounds of milk. Allow to coagulate for 30 or 40 minutes. Now break the curd with a spoon or three-cornered stick until the particles are the size of the end of your little finger. Now heat slowly up to 100 degrees, stir ring more or less constantly; when the mass reaches 100 degrees, let stand at that temperature until the curd becomes fnrm. 1.oughly speak ing,...
