THE JUNCTION FLOUR MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 25 January 1878
THE JUNCTION FLOUR MILL. A week or two since we.drew atteti tion to'the completidn orfthe flour wmill at the Gannawarra Junction. As the starting of the first flour mill'in-this - large agricultural district is an event in our history and a mark to inoicate our iaterial progress, we niaj be excused' for again referring to it. The site on which the mill is erected is that near the confluence of the Gun bower Creek with the River Murray, distant about fourteen miles from Ke rang The urray here is of good width and depth, and its banks mode rately steep. Geographically speaking. the place is an admirable one for a township, and we learn that one is to surveyed at once, and some blocks of fered for sale. The mill there is the nucleus around which the towniship will be formed. To our own knowledge several persons have expressed their in tention of buying town lots as soon as they can be got. There can be no doubt. therefore that a township of some considerable importance will in a short ...

HOW TO KNOW A RIPE MELON. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
110W TO KNOW A RIPE -MELON. Let ine give you an infallible sign by which to know a fully ripened. melon. W hen the melbn begins to change color inside, and its seeds to turn black, a small black speck, scale or blister, begins to ap pear on the outer cuticle or rind. These are multiplied and enlarged as. the fruit matures. A ripe melon will show them thickly sown over the surface. A partial development only indicates half ripe fruit. A full crop of blisters reveal its perfect ripeness. When hundreds of melons are strewn along the sidewalk, you will have to look pretty sharply to find one that exhi bits a satisfactory " escutcheon," to borroir a term from 3L Guenon. But it isunfailing when found, and by following this guide you may walk away with your melon .with the utmost coufidence.The blister is only to be seen upon a close inspection, but is plainly visible when that is given. If.you raise.wateraelons in your.own garden, the same rule will apply.-Country Gentleman.

The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, FEBRUARY 1, 1878. CIVIL SERVICE RETRENCHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
An? Sw.?y HILL GAZETTE. - P5E?L5SED WEEKLY. KERANG, FEBRUARY r, r878. CIVIL SERVICE RETRENCH MENT. It is allowed on all hands that re trenchment in the Civil Service was necessary; it had been promised again and again, but the reform could never be instituted. The Civil servants were either too powerful, or were on such terms of friendship and familiarity with Ministers that they, the Ministers, could not muster sufficient courage to apply the pruning knife. As it is often said that no man should prune his own orchard, as he has not the courage to use the knife with sufficient freedom and vigour, so there was nothing in appropriate in the fact of the Chosen of the People going knife in hand to prune the orchards of the Civil Service, and using that knife with moderation and judgment. It never was contem plated that the whole tree,head branches and all, would be cut off at a most in opportune time, perhaps when the sun's rays were at thei: greatest heat, or else when the tree was bow...

WANDELLA LAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
WANDELLA LAKE. The effects of tho dry season are evident in many ways, one of which is the drying up of the water in the creeks and dams. Woandella Lake. wnich, in the flool of I871, received the waters of the Loddon into its basin, also received a supply of fish of differ ent sorts. Since the flood of 187, , no addlition has been. made to the lake except what water was caught within the watershed of its own banks and as each season for some time has been dryer than the preceding one, so each year the water has got less ah less, till the culminating point has been reached this year. and the water of the lake has got so low that it has enabled the sun's rays and heat to so raise the temperature of the water that the fishes have been unable to stand it. The consequence is, that the whole surface of the lake is covered with dead bodies of bream, perch, and cat fish, fine specimens, some weighing as much as six pounds. The remains of the fish emitting an oily mstter, which is cover inog...

-- SELECT POETR'Yr - CONTENTMEINT. - If but a cottage, 'tis enough for me, Thounh you, my friend, may in a'palace , dwell, . To fortune's mandate I will calmly say, Thus itis wiell! It matters little if we rear not up Stone upon stone, a glittering gaudy pile Of earthly dross, to dazzle with its rays A little while. It matters little if we never hold The power or station of the rich anld great, When heaven's scales of wisdom will not bear The earthly weight. This might seemnill, if to material earth Our feet were changed through endless weary years, We might rebellous at privation grow, And care and tears. Now this we know, 'tis but a little while That we may linger in life's shine or shade, When every rising wish born of the earth Shall low be laid. This thought alone should bind with sooth ing bands • The heart oppressed by joy's unequal - rays, And check the grasp and greed of sordid nuinds 'Mid fortune's blaze. We cannot bear one atom from the earth On spirit wings, that wealth ...

After sink- i li ing t4 feet, there' were symptoms of p water, and now that the shaft has been b sunk to 20 feet, the water has come in freely, and at the present time there is six feet of good water, which many h think is as goo.d as rain -water, some h say better. The water is perfectly ii clear, with a slightly blue tinge, and a faint taste, which is to some persons c more palatable than the taste of Tege. table decaying matter, which is found i at present in nearly all the tank water.
