IMPROVING THE GIPPSLAND RIVERS [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 7 May 1914
IMPROVING THE GIPPSLAND RIVERS Councillor Whittakcrs moved: " That in the opinion ot this association, it is advisable that the Latrobe and other rivers in Gippsland should be snagged, in order to minimise the damage sustained by floods, and that the Government be urged to take steps to that end." He said that it would mean a great deai to Gippsland if the Latrobe river was snagged. It was not a new proposal, and it was the third time it had been brought forward. The improvement of the river1 would benefit a larjje and fertile area, and there, was not a'ttiorc im portant work".' It was not sugges ted that the Government should do the work without the landown ers contributing towards the cost. The owners of the l;md abutting ' he river were prepared to help '?.ci:\se;ves, and they v.anted fhfe tOi'&.s.hircs; in fretting the 'Government.'to. undertake the ,c cvc.e.

RE-AFFORESTATION [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 7 May 1914
RE-AFFORESTATION I CouncH'or Copeland moved : " That this association urges ,upoj» the Government the neces sity ot a more vigorous policy being adopted and carried out with regard to the management, conservation and renewal of the State forests of Victoria, and a more forward policy of rc-at forcstation, and more particu larly the planting of blackwood and other trees ior timber pur poses." He stated that the WarraguK district, once covered with timber, was now almost denuded, and no steps had as yet been taken to re new the supply. There was even difficulty in finding sheltor for stock. A policy of re-a(Toresta tion was required or Victoria would have to import blue gum timber, from California. Russia and other countries were re-planting. Tre.es could be planted along fcnccs and on the roads. Councillor M'Gnlliard seconded the motion, and said that tjifc .m portcd pine was not as valuable ;asthchiativc hard wood. The motion was caried.
THE BORDER RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 7 May 1914
TI-1E BORDER RAILWAY. Councillor Nixon moved . " That the Government be urged to extend the railway from Orbost, through East Gippsland, to the Border, so that its vast timber resources can be put to commercial use, settlement sti mulated, and trade facilities es tablished between the two States concerned, to their mutual ad vantage." He knew the country- through which the line would go very well. There were forests ot timber and the Government had used some of it lor the railways and public works. The presence ot the tim ber would reduce the cost &lt;jt the line. The State had a vast area ot valuable lorest country. There was the same timber over the bor der, and the New South Wales Government had taken large quan tities off a smaller area. The Go vernment should build the line for the sake of the timber. In the Murrengower forest, half a mil lion sterling worth ot timber had I been destroyed. The timber was the best crop some of the land would ever have, and there was a ma...

We had with us, as assistant, Mr Hermann, snagging master, who had the same trip in 1901, and welearned that the river is considerably dirtier than at that time. So bad was the river, that with the exception of a few good reaches, it was coDtinucus dragging and lifting of the boat over logs and snags, cutting a track through fallen timber, and iu other places removing stones to gently lower the boat over rapids. In many places large trees have also been felled into the stream in more or I less futile attempts to form footbridges. In ceneral, the river is much dirt...

IRRIGATION IN GIPPSLAND [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 14 May 1914
IRRIGATION IN .GIPPSLAND The Water Commission is engaged in securing all possible information regarding the proposed scheme for ir rigation at Boisdale and Kilmany Park. Commissioner Dethridge has just returned from an inspection of possible sites on the Mecalister and Avon rivers, and generally of the country suitable for irrigation. Mr Dethridge stated that he is much impressed with the richness of the soil, particularly in the Newry district; and he i3 convinced that by the adoption of the methods of irrigation such as are practiaed at Bacchus Marsh, considerable benefit must be done to the district. At Bacchus Marsh, instead of relying merely on the water available in the streams, works have been constructed for impounding the winter floods, and to these is attached a system of dis tributory workB. The old system, Mr Dethridge points out, could be of little ?value owing to the lowness of the streams in the particular Gippsland dis trict during the hot months from January to Marc...

THE LITTLE AMBER BOTTLE A Familiar Object in Thousands of Homes The Amber bottle in which Dr Horse's IndiaD Root Pills are packed is probably better known as a familiar object about tbe home than any other bottle of a like kind..

Some member of tbe family | circle may occasional- ! ly siifferfrom Bilious uess or Indigestion, and one or the other will from time to time exhibit tbe well known symptoms of Constipation, From these little troubles more serious com plaints arise and should, therefore, not be neglected.

GENERAL MEETING The meeting of the Rosedale Rab bit Destruction League and district landholders held in the Mechanics' Hall on Saturday evening last was largely attended. That farmers and graziers are taking a lively interest in the crusade against the rab bit is undoubted.
