The best means available for sug Sgesting, stimulating, and facilitating, the institution of new agencies and influences, and the operation of exis tent ones, for agricultural education, and the development and progress of the agricultural interest is a sub ject of perennial interest throughout the country, and of special interest to a young community so intimately identifledwith, and dependL tb iericultur4t interest a) "Heaven helps those who help them selves," is a proverb specially appli cable to agriculturalists. It is right and wellthat reasonable efforts should be made to obtain from the Govern ment whatever assistance, with the grace of Parliament, it can be in fluenced to afford to the development and fostering of the agricultural in terest. But, if the extent and value of that assistance, in our estimates for the future, are to be gauged by the State aid to this interest in tihe pa...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. -1 Farmnners have as much reason for re joiqingas asll other sections of the com munity at the frequent heavy showers of raiis which have fallen during the week. The ground has received a thorough soak= ing, the beneficial effects of which will be noticed in a few days. The district has been fortunate enough to secure a plenti fulsupply of moisture, and there is every reason for believing that other parts of the colony have been favored in a similar way. A wet spring means a bounteous harvest, and the rain having come at such an op portune moment, agriculturists in this part of Victoria are pretty sanguine of reaping good crops of produce. The dry season exhausted the supply of water in most of the holes constructed for the purpose of storing water for cattle and sheep; many. of the holes are still dry, sullicient rain not having fallen to replenish them. It was, therefore, a matter of greatconcern to stock holders, who are anxious about the safety of their flock...

THE YIELD OF A SINGLE EAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

TIHE YIELT) OF A SINGLE EARl. A farmer in Ohio has recently made an experiment which suggests an idea. Ile hlad procmred an ear of very fine yellow corn, and wishing to procure seed from it planted it in good soil, having first ascertained tha there were about t00 grains on the cab. Thi corn produced from those 500 hernelst Imeasured nearly t bushels, or about 900O ears fromone. The seedsoobtained wasasgood as the specimens pilanted. If farmers in the States would strive to obtain improved seed -and improvedl seed does not necessarilv I mean new varieties-they would make - money by the olperation. The truth is, that tlittle or no attention is paid to saving seed. IlWhen wheat is to be sown, the farmer goes to the store and buys his seed wheat, not knowing where it comes from, ignorant per 1 hLps that one sack of good wheat may be - mixed with two sacks of had, and ignorant t or careless of where it comes from. Ily such carelessness the field is often seed edt with thistles or weeds,...

THE EASTERN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

THIE EASTERN WAR. The"lBendigoEvening 'News"of the 24th inst., writes thus, on the war question: The cable which during the greater part of the last week has been silent, is again at work, and the result is that we are favoured with quite a plethora of news from the seat of war. The fact that there are now three or four distinct and separate messages received from time to time in this colony, and their contents bearing up on the same items of news, enables us to arrive at a pretty correct idea of the real state of things and military movements in the old world. When Baron Reuter was the sole contributor of European news to the columns of the colonial journals, the public of this colony frequently found themselves in an inexplicable maze regard ing the Eastern question, and as often as the Royal mails arrived, their information received through Reuter's agency had to undergo a revision before anything like an authentic and correct account could be ar rived at. Through journalistic en...

AMATEUR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

AMATEUR CONCERT. An amateur concert in aid of the Ke- rang Church of England building fund was held in the Kerang Hall on Friday, the 21st. Considering the unqualified success that   attended the previous concert held for the same laudable purpose, the One under notice was looked forward to with no little interest. Tickets therefore sold freely; many of those who had undertaken their sale found no difficulty in disposing of them;   in fact long before the time for opening,   there was quite a run upon them. The success of the concert in a financial point of view, was therefore, guaranteed -an important matter in the opinion of the committee of management. Through- out the day there were indications of a heavy fall of rain, and it was feared by many that that would interfere with people coming from a distance. In the evening the rain fell heavily, and the wind became cold and bleak; in fine, from a pleasurable point of view, one of the most disa...

THE THIRST FOR LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

THE THIRST FOR LAND. The rush for land in this district still continues, and instead of abating, is rapid- ly on the increase. In travelling through the country, the " white-tilted cart " may be seen in all directions. Some may con- tain only a single selector, while others may contain two or three friends, who are anxious to select adjoining blocks. Others again may carry a family of grown-up sons and daughters. But whether the selectors be single, in pairs, or in families, their object is still the same. They are afected alike. 'They hunger for land, and with that alone will they be satisfied. Those who are single-handed have the better chance of having their earth-hunger ap- peased, as there is not such difficulty to get a single block. Those, however, who hunt in couples, or in families, are not so easily satisfied, and have generally to go further back. That they do get satisfied is evi- dent from the number of applications for licenses to occupy, lodged weekly at the district ...

The boy's father,     who is a gatekeeper at the Giffard street   crossing, Williamstown, came out of his house to signal the four o'clock up-train,   and when the engine was within a short     distance of the gates, he was horrified to see his son lying on the road between the rails.   on which the approaching train was coming.   He called out and made signals to the en-     gine-driver to stop the train.

FARM WORK FOR OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

FARM WORK FOR OCTOBER           BY ABRAHAM LINCOLNE.   Potatoes -In the late districts, the main sowing ought to be now carried on, and if   proper care and attention be paid to the pre- paration of the land, large crops may be obtained. Many farmers are fond of large   areas being put under seed, heedless of giv-   ing necessary culture. A common-sense   writer remarks-- "It is often an error to plough too much and cultivate too little;     ploughing is not cultivating ;" and there   are very few crops to which thii truism can dista be more appropriately applied than to pota- his a Stoes.

THE PROPOSED BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 28 September 1877

THE PROPOSED BANQUET.—We under- stand that the Hon. J. J. Casey has ac- cepted the invitation to visit Kerang (be- fore he leaves the colony for Paris), to at- tend a banquet on the 24th October. He will be accompanied by Messrs H. R. Wil- liams and Thompson Moore. Ms.L.A. for Mandurang. The Ministry have also ac- cepted invitations for a similar purpose, as also have Mr Service, M.L.A., and other members of Parliament. We can safely vaticinate that Wednesday, the 24th Oc- tober, will be quite a gala day in Kerang, and we trust that great and lasting good will result to the district from the visit of the Ministry, and that Mr Casey will be still better fitted to represent Victoria at the Paris exhibition, having—as he doubt- less will—gained additional particulars of the resources of the colony. We are per- fectly confident that the good people of Kerang will do all in their power to make the auspicious occasion unequivocally suc- cessful—not only by entertaining the guests with all...
