MURCHISON WATER METERS. A FINAL WORD. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

MURCHISON WATER METERS. A FINAL WORD. When the commissioners of the Mur chison Waterworks Trust meet on Mon day evening next for their usual monthly meeting perhaps the most important business, as far as the ratepayers are con cerned, will be the continuation of the discussion on the much-ventilated meter question. Whether the trust, in its wis dom, will see fit to consider the proposal thrown out in these columns some two issues back is a matter that will bo awaited with a deal of interest, and per haps anxiety, by a large body of the ratepayers. There is no need to, at the present juncture, again enter into lengthy argument on the question, and, although during the intervening space of time since the publication of the above-mentioned article we have heard much argument both for and against the proposal, we are still firmly of opinion that tho ratepayers of the Murchison Waterworks Trust can be supplied with all the water they legitimately requite through open pipes —no meters—wit...

MONEY IN POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

MONEY IN POULTRY. Mr G. Dwyer, a representative of the Victorian Poultry and Kennel Club, in speaking at a deputation to the Minister of Agriculture on 4th March, gave some interesting figures respecting the Victorian poultry industry. He said the total daily egg production in Victoria was 1,500,000, and there was not the slightest reason why it should not be made 6,000,000. There were in the State, in 1911, 144,162 poultry owners, owning 3,855,538 fowls, 288,413 ducks, 59,851 geese, and 190,077 tnrkeys. The auction sales of poultry in 1913 were as follows :—Fowls 521,962, ducks 114,139, geese 46,163, turkeys 8,90S, and pigeons 8,908. . The quantity of eggs railed to Melbourne in 1908 was 3981 tons, in 1912 4732 tons, and in 1913 5685 tons. This did not include eggs brought to Melbourne .by rail or steamer. The export of poultry for 1913 was 30,000, and there was no reason why it should not be ten times as much. The request of the deputation was that the number of pens at Burnley co...

The Harvest Thanksgiving services in connection with the Murchison Pres byterian Church were held on Sunday morning and evening last, the preacher for the day being the Rev. J. Glyn Jones, of Nathalie. On the Saturday afternoon the church was suitably deoorated for the occasion. Large congregations were pre sent at both services, who listened with olose attention to the exceedingly interest ing Bermons of the preacher. On Mon day evening the annual congregational meeting was held. There was a good representative gathering present to re ceive the annual reports of the various organisations of the church and the treasurer's report and balance sheet. These all showed that steady progressive work had been done during the past year. The financial position of the charge is good, the balance-sheet showing a sub stantial increase for the past twelve months. ENTERTAINING AN ENEMY. Don't entertain a chronic ruaning sore or wounds.

PICKINGS FROM PUNCH. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

PICKINGS FROM PUNCH. " Hail, smiling morn i" sang the early rising teetotaller as he inhaled the health-giving morning air. "Ale, morn ing'smile,'" remarked the early-rising toper in the pub as he inhaled the coppers-cooling pint. • A visitor from England was at the house of a relative in Melbourne, and was horrified to notice with what little respect the mother of the house was treated by her children, especially at meal times. The youngsters were rude and dis obedient, crying for what they needed, and, if it was forbidden, taking it by force. "My dear," said the visitor to the mother, " this is intolerable. Why don't you. have a cane upon the table ? " " I'm afraid to," was the piteous reply— " Gwendoline (her five-year-old} might use it!" This is a parallel case to that of the old farmer who proudly boasted that he had reared six strapping boys to man hood without having once lifted his hand to any of them—save in self-defence ! Men who pretend to know, and whom London editors tr...

"I SUFFEREED FOR YEARS FROM CHRONIC CONSTIPATION, HEAD ACHES, NEURALGIA, AND BLEEDING PILES. "TO-DAY I FEEL QUITE WELL, ' BRIGHT AND CHEERFUL." " I have suffered from ohronic consti pation and most terrible headaches and neuralgia for years; also bleeding pileB," writes Mrs Brenner, Allen's Place, Port Melbourne, Vic.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

TO THE EDITOB, Sir,—I feel sure that altliougli the three particularly unsavory bits of Coun cil news were explained away (?) no ratepayer, who, after all, helps to " pay the piper," will agree to allow such " bluffing " to pass unnoticed. . If one can believe the men who originally sold the sleepers it would appear quite plain that the vendors to the council did not BUY ANY SLEEPERS AT ALL FROM THESE men, but that all their sleepers were bought and paid for by a Councillor who was " buying for the Council." If the sleepers were cheap at 2s 9d, as was suggested (although other buyers thought Is 6d a fair price), why were the sleeper cutters only paid Is 9d ? Surely they were entitled to the full price ! Even now, as Councillor Brice says they are really worth 3s 6d, I think the Council should re-sell them, as 9d profit would materially help the Council funds. No, this matter should not be allowed to go by default, as, together with the Park job and the Sanitary Ser vice trouble, the...

CRICKET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

CRICKET NOTES. Murchison play Rushworth on the letter's ground next Saturday. Mur chison team will be picked from the following:—Day (3), Dwyer, Davidson, Shewan, Heaziewood, Kearney, Oloney (2), Tliorne, Charlton, Tilson, Sherris -and Cadau. Players are requested to be in readiness to start at 1 p.m. Playing for Williamstown second eleven (sub-district grade), G Gladstone (nephew of the Messrs Salas-Bros., Murchison) put up the tine score of 83 and captured three Footscray wickets at a cost of 10 runs a-piece. Right throughout the sea son this lad has been displaying fine form and he should ere long secure a place in better cricket. In first grade metropolitan cricket on Saturday last L. J. Shewan, playing for Fitzroy, captured three Eist Melbourne wickets (including the brilliant Fred Baring) at a cost of 47 runs. Although Shewan's figures were easily the best for hia side he should have come out with a much better average. Evidently his luck was "dead out," for Peter M'Alister (w...

THE STANHOPE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

THE STANHOPE RAILWAY. In connection with the proposal to construct a branch railway to the Stan hope settlement the members of the Railways Standing Committee will visit Rushworth on Thursday next and make an inspection of the settlement area. On the Friday afternoon they will take evidence at the Fire Brigade hall. Evidence will be tendered by residents of Rushworth, and farmers of Carag and Timmering, and the best possible arguments advanced as to why the proposed line should have its start ing point-at Rushworth. In connection with this line we notice that onr Bendigo friends and people on the Elmore side have worked themselves up to a white-heat pitch of excitement in their advocacy of making this a cross country line having a starting point at Byrneside and linking up with the Bendigo-Eehuca system at Elmore. A strong point has been made of the fact that the line could be constructed for almost its entire length along the three-chain road, and the quality of the country travers...

COUNCIL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

CO U NOIL MATTERS. The reports published in our last issue of various interesting discussions which took place at the Waranga Shire Council meeting on several questions of public import created great interest with our numerous readers and the rate payers generally. Regret was expressed that the issue was not forced to a definite conclusion in both " The Park Road Contract" and " The Sleeper Deal." Cr Furphy was instrumental in bringing both these matters forward, for which he deserves the credit of all right thinking people, but he should have gone just the wee bit further and forced the issue, thereby compelling our repre sentatives to declare for right or wrong. It is hardly likely, however, that matters will be allowed to rest here, and in con nection with "The Sleeper Deal" we have been requested to furnish some particulars as to the operations of the council, or its engineer, or some coun cillor, in this direction. In order to give a broader view of the whole matter we will tak...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

TO THE EDITOE. Sir, — In a previous issue of your journal-1 commended Cr Furphy for his action in connection with the " Park Road Contract." Now, in the light of subsequent events (whilst still commend ing him), I must modify my opinion. He maintained his accusations in a very capable manner, but just when he had the shifty members of his crew nicely cornered he allowed them to dodge through without even showing their hands to the ratepayers. I think my statements have been proved as regards the methods of the engineer in contract works, especially in the contract under review. Practically all the councillors were satisfied that there had been jobbery in the case; that the specifications were ignored by both engineer and contractor, and that the contract was completed with an utter disregard to conditions of contract, yet they did not tell the en gineer not to d"o it again. What became of the stumps Cr Furphy had noted previously but could not find last council day ? He should have ...
